Latvia in 2010 - Times Online

Welcome to 2010: War, terrorism, football and an Oscar for aliens - Times Online
Times correspondents from around the globe pinpoint the trouble spots, the changing alliances and the highs and lows of the next 12 months

"Less stable will be nearby Latvia (an economic contraction of 4 per cent on top of the 10 per cent in 2009), where a shaky Government may be forced to call elections before the deadline of October 2010. For the weak man of Europe, even more fragile than Hungary, another year of economic shrinkage is translating into support for the far-Right (a probable factor in April’s parliamentary elections). Latvia’s decline is likely to affect Estonia and Lithuania, and weaken Scandinavian countries which are very exposed to problems in the Baltic. "
