Red Army soldiers were probably but not definitely buried at Tonismagi in Tallinn at the end of World War II, according to historian Peeter Kaasik.
"The first interment of Red Army fighters at Tonismagi immediately after Tallinn was occupied in September 1944 is probable but not documented in written records available in Estonia," Kaasik said.
On April 14, 1945 the remains of 12 Red Army soldiers were reburied at Tonismagi, according to a Red Army document, the accuracy of which is still in question.
