According to the Atlantic, paramilitary groups in the Baltic have mushroomed in recent years, responding to an increase in Russian aggression. We included a video (above) from CBS News to give greater clarity into Baltic mobilization efforts.
Among the paramilitary volunteers are bikers, ex-soldiers, hunters, and stockbreeders. Each group has its own division dedicated to training young men and women in military tactics and patriotism; some volunteers are as young as 12 years old. These groups insist they are apolitical. They seek to defend their borders and train the warriors of tomorrow to prepare for whatever Putin has planned next.
