Butt out of the Baltics

Another week, another ill-informed international "observer" criticizes Estonia about it's Russian population. When will these groups get their facts straight before writing these ridiculous reports?

Each report raises the same issues - don't any of them bother to ask Estonia about the real situation first?
This time it's the Parliamentary Assembly Council of Europe. How many parliamentary bodies are there supposedly representing European interests? Is no one concerned about the huge bureacracy being generated by all these councils and committees?

Perhaps these high and mighty human rights watchers should try living here for a while. Then they might understand why they need to protect the Estonian language, and that the Russian people are doing just fine, thanks very much.
