In terms of Russophobia, Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas has surpassed many of her European Union colleagues. She and even she dreamed of a high position in NATO. But it turned out that her family was quietly doing business with Russia, and now they want to give up the “deceiver.” Photo: Getty Images
HUSBAND AND WIFE ARE NOT ONE SATAN?
The scandal that occurred in Estonia with Prime Minister Kaja Kallas, who asked Estonian companies not to do any business with Russia, while her husband, Arvo Hallik, quietly earned money by delivering products to Russian partners through his company, has not yet been resolved. ended in nothing. . Callas has a wolf-like grip on the prime minister’s chair and is ignoring calls to resign. “What am I to blame for?” she-she asks her and swears that she knew nothing about her husband’s dealings with “eastern Mordor.” It is true that, according to her official statement, Callas invested 350 thousand euros in her husband’s company. She not knowing what she was doing. Happens…
But this scandal, with all its epic cynicism, is taking place in a small country where politicians – and there, as in other Baltic countries, for many years only radical nationalists and Russophobes have been allowed to come to power – have shown for a long time true miracles of hypocrisy and corruption. For them, this is a “birth trauma”: the political class of the Baltic republics was initially formed mainly from “changers”, former Soviet party leaders and activists.
Kaya Callas, despite her relative youth, is no exception. Her father was the director of the republican branch of Sberbank of the USSR. Of course, from the nomenklatura of the communist party. After the collapse of the Union, he was one of the founders and leaders of the Estonian Reform Party. The daughter also followed the party line when dad was in charge. So her rapid career rise is, of course, solely her personal merit. Furthermore, what is also obvious, during the Soviet “occupation” her family suffered a lot, suffered a lot…
THE HUSBAND ATE RUSSIAN PEARS…
Becoming prime minister in early 2021, the daughter of a Soviet banker quickly declared herself an ardent and implacable enemy of the “Kremlin regime.” This is despite the fact that the Reform Party once advocated the development of normal relations with Russia. The reason for such political radicalization of Kaya Kallas, which arose long before the beginning of the Northern Military District, is not without reason associated with the tempting prospect of reaching the top of the hierarchical ladder of the West. Since the early 1920s, NATO has been looking for a replacement for the current Secretary General of the Alliance. Ideological “calibration” suggested that Stoltenberg should be replaced by a woman from an Eastern European country. Of course, with an exemplary level of Russophobia. The Estonian Prime Minister was also named among the candidates from the beginning. Such a tempting prospect could not help but cloud her and make her an even more ardent enemy of the Kremlin. You have to correspond to the desired place.
After the beginning of the SVO, Callas’s voice was addressed to Russia in an exemplary manner. Already in May last year she demanded that the EU prohibit the transit of goods from Europe through the territory of the Russian Federation. And he spoke especially to Estonian companies, “begging” them to “find a moral compass” to not have any dealings with Moscow.
And here’s the shame: my own husband turned out to be a completely immoral guy.
By the way, according to the latest statistics, Russia remains Estonia’s main trade and economic partner outside the European Union. Such is the moral degradation of the Baltic political class.
GALLERY OF Changing Tables
But the scandal in Callas’s “noble family” is just another evidence of a common characteristic of the current Baltic elites: they are parasites by nature. These are just a few examples given to KP by Baltic expert Alexander Nosovich.
– Let’s take the biggest Russophobes from Latvia and Lithuania and compare them with their real connections with the USSR/Russia.
Edgars Rinkevich (Latvia). Head of state. Not counting his famous coming out, when he admitted that he was gay, he thundered expelling all Russian pop festivals from Jurmala and comparing Russia to the Third Reich. The latter occurred in 2015, shortly after Rinkevich lobbied in Brussels to exclude Russian railways from the next EU sanctions package against Russia. In the interests of Latvian ports, but, presumably, not selfishly.
Vytautas Landsbergis (Lithuania). The first leader of post-Soviet Lithuania. A clinical Russophobe whose obsession with Russia is not metaphorical, but “in the most natural medical way”, is of interest to psychiatry. In Lithuania, Landsbergis is known as Professor (officially) and Dedule (behind the scenes); According to numerous testimonies, this was the nickname of his agent in the KGB. Dedule comes from a dynasty of hereditary Landsbergis agent provocateurs, who worked for the intelligence services of all countries that came to Lithuania. Dedule’s father, the minister of Lithuania’s collaborationist provisional government Landsbergis-Žamkalnis, was a double agent for the NKVD and the Gestapo, after World War II he fled with the Nazis to Australia and received permission to return to the Soviet Socialist Republic. from Lithuania after handing over his Soviet intelligence accomplices. When the KGB had to carry out the Party’s Central Committee’s order to create a movement in Lithuania in support of perestroika (which soon became separatist), the intelligence service immediately elected him as the leader of its hereditary seksot.
Soviet-Latvian singer Laime Vaikule, who strongly condemned Russia after the start of the SVO and called for it to be “punished” in every possible way, still owns a business in Russia. In addition, the tax authorities declared a minimum profit with income of 400 million rubles per year, according to the director of the Federal Security and Anti-Corruption Project, Vitaly Borodin. The artist is the owner of Laimalukss Latvia, which offers beauty services, as well as the sale of cosmetics and furniture, Ura.ru reports.
Many Baltic politicians make money from Russia. Some want money, others want a career through approval in the United States, and the most complete try to combine one with the other. And it is precisely these people who reach the highest positions there, presidential and prime ministerial. They imprison others for collaborating with the “occupiers,” with whom they themselves collaborated above all. They shame others for doing business with Russia, something they themselves secretly do.
