Estonian authorities accused of ruining education in Russian

Activists campaigning for the Russian-speaking community of Estonia have accused the authorities of trying to expel Russian from the country’s education system.

Writing in their Facebook account Saturday, they also complained about persecution, cited incidents of judicial frame-up of Russian-speaking educationalists and called attention to the fact that Education Minister Jaak Aaviksoo was responsible for the removal of a Soviet war memorial from central Tallinn in 2007.

At the time, Mr Aaviksoo was his country’s Defence Minister.
