Soviet Memorials Pulled Down in Estonia Again

Channel I --- Two more Soviet memorials have been destroyed in Tallinn. One of the monuments commemorated cadets of the Tallinn Military School and stood in the territory of the military barracks where the regiment of legendary Soviet Hero Alexander Matrosov was deployed after the war.

The second monument commemorated one of the founders of the Estonian Communist party Hans Pegelman, who fell victim to Stalinist repressions in the 30s.

The monuments have been pulled down by Estonian radical nationalist Yuri Lijm who had been fined for threats to explode the Bronze Soldier. This time he himself hired a crane and drove the monuments to city suburbs. Police did not interfere.
