The pairing is often called RusLat (from their nation names, Russia and Latvia) by fans, and is a fast growing pairing in the fanon world.
In some cases it shows that Russia holds some feelings for Latvia but hides it by bullying him.
Russia likes to "play" with Latvia by stretching him, which causes Latvia to cry and Estonia to worry.
Latvia is known to be clumsy in his attempts at making Russia happy, often failing somehow or saying something without thinking that upsets Russia. Since Himaruya describes Latvia as being "yandere ," some interpret this to be Latvia's passive-aggressive attempt at getting under Russia's skin.
