Lesson #1: Mart Laar isn't an award-winning Estonian leader that put his country back on the map, he's the equivalent of Salman Rushdie, preaching divisiveness:
It is understood that the former Estonian prime minister Mart Laar, an author of scandalous history books, voted the bill into law.
Lesson #2: Estonians really just have issues with their fathers, that whole occupation thing is just cover for unresolved issues at home:
Mikhail Lotman, a son of the renowned philologist Yuri Lotman, voted for the bill too. Well, it stands to reason since Mikhail Lotman reportedly sold his father’s archives along with all the books of a library for $80,000 two years ago.
Incidentally, Yuri Lotman served as a gunner in the Soviet Army during the WWII. The media reported that Mikhail had literally cleared out the contents of his father’s study. He sold everything including diplomas and personal correspondence. He even took away an old draft board card of his father…
Lesson #3: Estonian politicians aren't real Estonians, anyway:
No wonder Trivimi Velliste was one the deputies who had supported the new law. Velliste has always been known for his extremely radical views. However, everyone in Estonia is aware of the deputy’s true name, which is Trofim Velichkin. The deputy strongly denies all allegations as to his real name (in fact, he prefers to use English while speaking with Russians – ed. note).
Lesson #4: Estonia's Russians that aren't on Moscow's side are pussies:
Deputy Tatyana Muravyeva was reportedly present in Parliament during the vote but never pressed the button to register her vote. Deputy Sergei Ivanov was missing during the vote. Rumor has it that Ivanov had gone to a cafeteria shortly before the vote took place.
Lesson #5: Estonians are unworthy of being properly referenced in Pravda:
Some time ago Estonian Prime Minister Abdrus Ansip slapped a ban on the erection of a monument to Peter the Great in the city of Narva.
