The forest brothers just highlights the tragic situation, the vise grip of the big countries Germany and Russia / Soviet Union on the Baltic states and Eastern Europe in general. It was a choice between two great evils and both had nothing but occupation and subjugation of the Baltics in mind. If it weren't for America today the situation would still be desperate. I wonder how the Baltics feel about the joint German-Russian sea gas pipeline and other projects.
Unfortunately, yes.

By the late 1940s and early 1950s the Forest Brothers were provided with supplies, liaison officers and logistical coordination by the British (MI6), American, and Swedish secret intelligence services ... This support played a key role in directing the Baltic resistance movement, however it diminished significantly after MI6's Operation Jungle was severely compromised by the activities of British spies (Kim Philby and others) who forwarded information to the Soviets, enabling the KGB to identify, infiltrate and eliminate many Baltic guerrilla units and cut others off from any further contact with Western intelligence operatives ...
