On Tuesday evening, the Board of the Center Party decided to expel Mikhail Stalnukhin, a member of the Riigikogu and the Narva City Council, from the ranks of the political force, reports rus.err.ee.

“The Board of the Central Party, after hearing member of the Riigikogu Mihail Stalnukhin, decided to expel him from the party. The decision was prompted by his inappropriate statement addressed to the Estonian state and government,” Center Party chairman Jüri Ratas said on social media.

“The Center Party has always stood up for all Estonians, regardless of their mother tongue, and we should all try to look to the future together. It is the duty of all politicians to unite society in this difficult time, and not to divide and oppose communities Estonia is a free and democratic country where everyone has the right to their thoughts and opinions, but this was a wrong and even dangerous statement that did not correspond to the values ​​of the Center Party”, – summed up the leader of the centrists.

Mikhail Stalnukhin said in a Russian-language video posted on social media that he considers those who demolish monuments to Soviet soldiers to be Nazis and called members of the government and Prime Minister Kaya Kallas (Reform Party) fascists.

In the 2019 parliamentary elections, Stalnukhin received 2,653 votes in Ida-Virumaa, second only to Yana Toom (Centre Party), who received 6,195 votes.
