Latvia lists security threats: terrorists, drugs, Russia
A report by the Latvian National Security Council listed Russia's threat to the Baltic state as equal to terrorism, drug trafficking and illegal immigration.

The Latvian agency labelled Russian economic growth as dangerous because its eastern neighbour “uses energy instruments as means of influence”.

The report also says Russia’s growing geopolitical strength should be reckoned with.

Other threats the report mentions are terrorism, drug trafficking and illegal immigration, reports RIA Novosti news agency.
