Estonians resisting provocations

Apr 14, 2014
From wire reports, TALLINN

Estonian Interior Minister Hanno Pevkur thinks that it isn’t possible for people to gather under Russian flags and demand a referendum in Estonia, as has happened in eastern Ukraine, reports Eesti Paevaleht. Pevkur said in an interview to Eesti Paevaleht that local security institutions do their work every day to make sure something like that wouldn’t happen and are ready to react if need be.

Still, the minister doesn't rue out provocations.

Pevkur said that having grown up in the northeast Estonian Ida-Virumaa region, he knows the moods there very well and the most complicated spot is certainly the border town Narva, a situation in which isn’t made simpler by some Center Party politicians who are very close to inciting hostility.

Pevkur said that he recommends people to keep calm, not to give in to any provocations and those people who have the courage or wish could join the assistant police or the Defense League.

"Today there is reason to be moderately concerned but sufficiently certain that Estonia is protected," said Pevkur.
