The federal government of Estonia announced on Tuesday that the Estonian federal government declared that they’ve decided to remove a monument from the Soviet period in Narva in the near order of Estonia that is Russian-speaking. Juri Ratas, Estonia’s prime Minister, has stated that the monument poses an obstructing factor to the public’s order. Ratas explained that the move was made after consulting with safety workers from the local area along with residents. He added that the us government has a commitment to ensure the safety of everybody whom lives in Estonia, no matter their competition or background. It is called”the Bronze Soldier Soviet Monument, and was built in honour of Red Army soldiers that died in World War II.
When the world shifts exactly the same goes for our memorials and public exhibitions. What is considered appropriate in the past may not be the same down the road. Estonia’s Soviet-era monument had been taken off the general public domain. The motives behind its treatment are numerous and diverse, but suffice it for all of us to mention that enough time has changed and the thing that was formerly accepted can no more be tolerated.
