Today it was a hard day in one of Estonian towns. It was hard because of this bronze monument you can see on the pictures.
It was a monument that from Russian point of view commemorates the glory of Soviet forces liberating Estonia and Europe from the Nazi invasion. From the Estonian official point of view it is the monument of the invaders because Estonians were fighting together with German army against Soviet and thus it can’t stand anymore in Estonia.

But there are a lot of Russians who live in Estonia so they started expressing their attitude to this even on the streets. Police came into play and used gas.
Tens were wounded, one later died in the hospital.
