Letter: Save Baltics from Russian power

Sir: The present discussion on spheres of influence in Europe (" `Silk Curtain' cuts Europe in two once more", 16 March) strikes the Baltic states with horror and trepidation.

Estonia MPs reject nominee

TALLINN - Estonia's fragmented parliament rejected President Lennart Meri's nominee for prime minister, increasing the prospect of early elections. Siim Kallas, president of the country's Central Bank and ardent proponent of free-market economics, was rejected by a vote of 55 to 40, with five abstentions. President Meri had nominated Mr Kallas after the Prime Minister, Mart Laar, one of the former Soviet bloc's leading reformers, lost a vote of confidence last month. AP

Ferry problem

Stockholm - Another Baltic ferry has leaked water through its front cargo door and was taken out of service yesterday.
