The Baltic Invasion was the 2015 full-scale ground invasion of the Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania by Russian military forces during the Third World War.

Invasion of the Baltic States

On July 10, 2015, Russian military forces launch a full-scale invasions of Estonia and Latvia; the attacks are initially carried out with two primary armored thrusts; one along the northern Baltic coast toward Tallinn and the other straight past Izborsk toward Riga. Meanwhile Russian aircraft had already crossed into Lithuanian airspace as ground forces amass along the border in Belarus and the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad. American and other NATO forces already in the Baltic States fought back against the Russian onslaught and managed to inflict considerable losses on the enemy. Their biggest success was blowing a number of bridges along the road to Riga. This small NATO victory temporarily stalled the Russians in Latvia however the same couldn't be said elsewhere. Russian troops eventually reached the Estonian capital city of Tallinn in the north while Russian armored units invaded Lithuania to the South. Eventually the Russians regained the offensive in Latvia as well and reached Riga by the third day of the invasion. After intense urban warfare, the Russians defeated NATO forces defending Tallinn and Riga, occupying both cities. Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, fell by the end of the first week. The Baltic States were under Russian military occupation by July 17, 2015.
