"What we can expect: it's predictably aggressive and predictably destabilizing. That's what we will face this year," she said during a discussion on Central and Eastern Europe.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is widely expected to win the a fourth presidential term in the March 2018 election.

Concerns about Russia's actions in the Baltic Sea region heightened after it annexed Crimea and began to support separatists in Eastern Ukraine in 2014.
