Latvian military apologizes for GUNFIRE in busy streets of Riga which left civilians terrified amid major NATO war games (VIDEOS)

Latvia’s capital RIga briefly turned into a warzone at the weekend, with heavily armed soldiers firing weapons among startled civilians. The firefight turned out to be an exercise that had somehow not been marked or cordoned off. Multiple videos of the incident surfaced online on Saturday, promptly going viral.

Insanity. NATO (US proxy) holding military drills 300 miles away from Moscow… less than 100 miles from the Russian border. It’s hard to explain to my fellow Americans how provocative this is. I try like this: Imagine Russian troops holding military drills in Montreal, Canada and firing automatic weapons around a civilian shopping district. The politicians and media would go crazy, non-stop 24×7 coverage. Please let the empire die already so normal people can get back to peace and prosperity.

NATO wargames are a money-making exercise. Latvia doesn’t have many other sources of revenue, so the odd war game in town makes Latvia a bit of pocket change.

This exercise was held in the Russian section of Riga, but notices were only posted in Latvian. As for “blanks” being safe, complete BS! Blanks can kill at close range.
