Estonia bans celebrations for victory over fascism


Estonia bans celebrations for victory over fascism

Tallinn, Apr 22 (Prensa Latina) The Estonian Police today issued a decree that prohibits celebrations in the streets of this capital on the occasion of the victory of the then Soviet Union over Nazi Germany.

According to the force of order, which argues possible provocations and threats, some of the Russian symbols would be used in the marches, such as the ribbons of Saint George and the letters Z and V, prohibited in Europe since the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine, highlighted this Friday Tallinn radio.

The Estonian authorities recommended carrying out other alternatives such as lighting candles or bringing flowers to the cemetery to honor the fallen in World War II.

At the moment, two events scheduled for April 26, the date on which floral offerings and speeches are traditionally made in the heart of Tallinn, have already been cancelled.

Right in that space, the Bronze Soldier was erected in 1947, a Soviet monument with a lot of symbolic charge for both detractors and supporters.

Three other demonstrations have also been canceled on May 9, the date on which Victory Day is commemorated both in Russia and in several former Soviet republics.

The organizers of these mobilizations advanced that they will try to appeal the decision of the Police, since “they have shown that they cannot guarantee the constitutional order”, nor “the rights of their people”.
