Abstract: The author examines the construction of political regions in the Baltic states. The main aim of the study is to analyse the trajectories of regional identities among the political elite of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia and the extent of discursive compatibility and sustainability, employing the adjusted constructivist reasoning and discourse analysis. The author considers two main statements: 1. Construction of political regions in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia was dominated by Soviet legacies and the subsequent sovereignty and security concerns whose derivatives — Transatlantic integration vs. Russia — were the most relevant categories for regional identities in the Baltics; 2. The trilateral Baltic sub-regional identity has been the most important for Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, compared with other regional affiliations
