TWITTER FIGHT NATO Tweets Russia Responds
A NATO tweet celebrating the story of former Baltic partisans who resisted Soviet occupation during World War II has sparked a feud with the Russian government.

The partisans are a contentious group in Russia for allegedly being pro-Nazi. The tweet drew immediate condemnation from Russia’s permanent mission to NATO, which called the video a “shame attempt to rewrite history.”

The permanent mission followed up saying the video’s distribution was “intolerance and war-mongering at its best.”

Condemnation then spiraled to the highest levels of the Russian government.
