In Estonia, a faction of the Estonian Conservative People’s Party (EKRE) has submitted a bill to the country’s parliament, which proposes to dismantle monuments to Soviet and Russian soldiers in public places. This is reported TASS with reference to the Latvian agency LETA.

According to party MP Paul Puustusmaa, it is necessary “to get rid of monuments that justify Russian imperialism and military policy.” He stated that the country’s authorities should create a legal framework in order to “correctly” remove monuments that glorify the actions of the Russian and Soviet armies from public space.

On February 21, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed decrees recognizing the independence of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR), and on February 24 he made an urgent appeal to the Russians and announced a special military operation in Donbass. In his speech, he stated that “circumstances require decisive action from Russia” and stressed that “Russia will not allow Ukraine to have nuclear weapons.” The goals of the special operation were called “demilitarization and denazification” of Ukraine.

In response to Russia’s actions, Western countries (USA, Canada, European Union, Great Britain, Japan) announced new, tougher sanctions against the Russian Federation, including those of a financial and economic nature, as well as against officials and businessmen.
