Recognition for the Russian minority!
The removal of the statue to a cemetary could be interpreted as a clear expression of the wish of what the Estonian majority would like to do with the Russian minority in Estonia. Moreoever, the statue stands for the sacrifices made by all soldiers at the eastern front during Word War II and is therefore not just an Estonian matter. It is fully understandable that Russia feels offended and the Russian minority in Estonian feels threatened by the removal of the statue. The delegation of the European Union should keep this in mind while discussing the matter with the Russian government. The Russian minority in Estonia is now a minority in the European Union and should be recognised and protected as such.
