Estonian flag torn off Estonian Embassy in Moscow
The Estonian flag was torn off the Estonian Embassy in Moscow and shredded into pieces on Tuesday, 1 May. Ministry of Foreign Affairs considers this absolutely unacceptable.
While the Estonian flag was desecrated, the Russian Duma delegation currently on a visit to Estonia admitted to the Secretary General of Estonian Ministry Foreign Affairs that the security of the Embassy could be restored in three minutes if Russian side only wished it.
Unwillingness of the Russian authorities to restore the security of the Embassy is incomprehensible as the Duma delegation conceded that this could be done very quickly.
