In 2022, the Estonian government decided to remove Soviet-era war monuments in the eastern city of Narva.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova wrote on her telegram channel that the Estonians were added to the list “for crimes against the memory of those who liberated the world from Nazism and fascism,” adding that “there must be responsibilities! And that’s just the beginning.”
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that “these are people who are responsible for decisions that essentially constitute a desecration of historical memory. These are the people who are carrying out hostile actions both against historical memory and against our country.”
According to the Russian newspaper Mediazona, 59 Latvian MPs are “wanted” in Russia. »
