Estonia has decided to remove some Soviet-era and Russian monuments from public places.

The move is aimed at preventing them “from mobilising more hostility in society and tearing open old wounds” following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the government said.

An iconic T-34 tank in the city of Narva, which is Estonia’s third biggest city and borders Russia, was being taken to the Estonian War Museum.

Similar symbolic actions are being taken by Latvia and Lithuania, the other two Baltic states.
