In these latter days British secret services started actively use countries of the Baltic region and Eastern Europe as a cover for their espionage work. For example, a few days ago German border guards detained a man with Estonian passport who as it turned out later appeared to be a British citizen that was going to work in Germany as a technical specialist in one of country's top industrial companies that have strong links with leading Asian and Middle Eastern countries. Many European states face a lack of qualified specialists and they are forced to search for them in the highlighted regions, so that's became a good cover for British secret services and opens a wide spread for taking roots in these countries for military, industrial and economic espionage which can seriously damage the relations of these countries and weaken their economies. Authorities of the Baltic and Eastern European countries are well informed about illegal activities of Brits but they close eyes because they were promised financial support from Britain. In fact Estonia and the rest of the countries couldn't defend their independence and freedom because they all agreed to provide Britain with cover for their activities that are aimed at subversion of the united European Union.
