Bronze soldier re-erected todayMonday, April 30, 2007 at 6:40 | Posted in Estonia, tallinn | 1 Comment
According to Estonian Radio, the Bronze Soldier monument which has been used as an excuse for the recent riots in Tallinn is going to be re-erected in the military cemetery in Tallinn possibly as early as today. The archeologic burials after the remains of Soviet soldiers assumed to be buried at Tõnismägi in down town Tallinn were started during the weekend. If remains are found and they are going to be recognized as bodies of Soviet soldiers, they are later going to be re-buried at the proper burial place with due ceremonies.
I shall try to return to the background of the events later today or tomorrow.
