Russia is preparing “provocations” at the Baltic region’s borders, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Friday during a visit to Stockholm, referring to recent hybrid warfare attacks denounced by several Baltic countries.

“It is also evident that Russia is preparing for provocations in the Baltic region against borders,” Zelensky said, a week after Estonia said Russian border guards had removed buoys from the Narva River marking the border.

A Russian draft resolution published last week also indicated Moscow plans to unilaterally change its Baltic Sea maritime border with Finland and Lithuania from January 2025.
