Russia is trying to use propaganda in addition to the army to advance its imperialist ambitions, including the falsification of history, Estonian diplomats say.

The Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned the Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the country, Vladimir Lipaev, to express dissatisfaction with President Vladimir Putin’s recent speech. On Friday, June 10, Posttimees said.

We are talking about the statement of Russian President Vladimir Putin, in which he drew parallels between the time of Tsar Peter I and modern Russia, which “fell to return and strengthen.”

According to Foreign Ministry vice-chancellor Rein Tammsaar, who met with the Russian ambassador, what Putin said, including about the Estonian city of Narva, was unfortunate.

“In conditions when Russia has pursued its revanchist policy under the dressing of the ideology of the“ Russian world ”by the destruction of Ukrainian statehood and the country, this is completely unacceptable,” he said.

Tammsaar also reminded the ambassador of the idea of ​​the State Duma of the Russian Federation to withdraw recognition of Lithuania’s independence and threats to “denazify” and “demilitarize” other states.

The Foreign Ministry is sure that Russia is trying to use propaganda along with military force to carry out imperial ambitions. For this, history is forged in the Russian Federation.

“Such an approach will inevitably fail and could be dangerous for Russia itself,” Tammsar said.

“We once again call on Russia to immediately withdraw its troops from Ukraine, stop fighting and respect Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity within internationally recognized borders,” he added.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, on the 350th anniversary of the founder of the Russian Empire, Peter I, drew a parallel between the conquests of the Russian tsar and the Russian invasion of Ukraine, including Narva.

In particular, Putin said that Peter I went to Narva “returning it to Russia.”

“The same is true in the western direction. This applies to Narva, his first campaign. Why did he go up there? He came back. And got stronger. That’s what he did. Apparently, it also fell to our destiny to come back and strengthen,” Putin said. Err.ee.

Near Narva in 1700, at the very beginning of the Northern War, the Russian army suffered severe defeat from the Swedes. However, a few years later the fort was captured, and as a result of the war, Narva and the entire territory of modern Estonia were under the control of the Russian Empire.

In Estonia, they fear that the so -called ideology of the “Russian world” could be extended here as a country that was part of the Russian Empire, and then the USSR.

Earlier, Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas said it was pointless to talk to Putin if Western countries really wanted him to understand that he was isolated.
