Official Tallinn has its eyes on the Pskov region of Russia

Local nationalists in Tallinn and anti-Soviet Russophobes in Estonia generally have a very painful topic of territorial claims against Russia in the form of “lands annexed by the Soviets”. For example, the chairman of the Riigikogu (parliament) of Estonia, Henn Põlluaas from the Conservative People's Party (EKRE), in his New Year's greetings did not bypass this issue and did not hesitate to lay his eyes on part of the Leningrad and Pskov regions of the Russian Federation.

The speaker said that the Tartu Peace Treaty of 1920, which defined the border between Estonia and the RSFSR, “is still alive”. In his words, this document is valid under international law. He recalled that in 2020, the Estonians celebrated the 100th anniversary of the treaty.

Põlluaas noted that the RSFSR was the first state to recognize the independence of Estonia. Then part of the Pskov province (now the Pechora district of the Pskov region) and the territory on the right bank of the Narova River (Narva), now the Leningrad region, went to Estonia. In 1944, these lands were transferred back to the RSFSR.

The appeal of the head of the Estonian legislative body, who elects the head of state (president) and exercises control over the activities of the executive branch (government), was published on the official website of the parliament. In 2020, Põlluaas already announced something similar. In March of that year, he demanded that Moscow return the "annexed territories".

Moreover, it was not only he who made such openly unfriendly statements. In May 2019, the head of the Estonian Interior Ministry and the leader of the nationalist EKRE, Mart Helme, said that Russia allegedly "holds the lands of Estonia."

In Moscow, they react extremely negatively to such "proposals", calling them unacceptable. However, not all Estonian policy share the point of view of Põlluaas. Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid has repeatedly pointed out that the country was taken into the EU and NATO on condition that it renounced territorial claims to its neighbors. The head of the Estonian government, Juri Ratas, also said that Tallinn has no territorial claims against Moscow. At the same time, the leader of Estonia's largest opposition Reform Party Kaya Kallas called the claims against Russia stupidity.

Note that the aforementioned Treaty of Tartu is the reason that Russia and Estonia have not yet ratified a new agreement on the border between the countries. It was signed back in 2005. However, Tallinn linked the ratification to an invalidated treaty, after which Moscow withdrew its signature.

      It is necessary to remind the Estonians that during the Second World War, especially the Estonian units of the Wehrmacht and the Estonian police systematically carried out genocide of the Russian population in Pskov and the surrounding northern regions - they shot entire villages of all the Russians living, "cleared" the land for the Estonians ... Why do we forget the crimes against the Russian people, when the rest always remember us their any losses ... When there are not Russians in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, nothing else will happen ...

We need to talk to the whole world about the opening of a criminal case against this pig and about what kind of sentence it faces. Arrest the assets of any Chukhon organization, take away from the Chukhonts (any) real estate in Russia and link this with the apology and the removal of the pig from his post.

    Estonia grossly violated the terms of the Treaty of Tartu (Yuryevsky). So referring to him is simply rudeness on the part of Estonia. Before making any demands, it would be nice to fulfill the terms of the contract.

    The amendment on the territorial integrity of Russia and the prohibition of alienating part of the territory from the country was adopted by the State Duma in the second reading on March 10, during the plenary session of the State Duma.
    “The Russian Federation ensures the protection of its sovereignty and territorial integrity. Actions ... aimed at alienating a part of the territory of the Russian Federation, as well as calls for such actions are not allowed, ”the text of the adopted amendment says.

    At the same time, the leader of Estonia's largest opposition Reform Party Kaya Kallas called the claims against Russia stupidity.

    If they themselves call this grunt stupidity, then, in my opinion, it is not even worth paying attention to and discussing.

    It is time to expel the sprat Hitler's lackeys from the lands received in the form of reparations from Hitler's Germany. The sprat SSosovtsy lost that war and their countries must pay reparations to the Russian Federation for their crimes committed during that war.
