Similar, they "invited" the Soviets in 1940 to build army bases and reeducate non-communists (and didn't fight like the Finns), so when Barbarossa started they were quite enthusiastic and hoped it was a liberation. There's a book about the Baltic states in the 1940's called Between Giants by Prit Buttar, that title says it all really.
