Russians are universally hated in the baltics. SU was an empire and invaded nearby countries when they felt like it. They persecuted tortured and murdered as recent as the late 80's.
What the Taliban, ICIS have done is nothing to what SU have done.
A curse though on all thier houses.
My wife and I spent three weeks in the summer of 1988 staying with a family of Russians in Leningrad (as it then was) and Pskov.
I remember a basketball game on TV with the Soviet Union playing the USA in Riga, the capital of Latvia, and the crowd cheering for the Americans. I was amazed that you could hear that on Soviet TV.
During that holiday we went into Estonia, and were among the first westerners to be allowed into the city of Tartu, which had been closed to foreigners because of an airbase being located there. The anti-Soviet feeling there was palpable.
