Estonia begins removing Soviet-era war monuments

Estonia has decided to remove Soviet-era war 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 borders Russia, was being taken to the Estonian War Museum.

Narva is Estonia's third biggest city, where 97% of its population of about 60,000 people speak Russian.

Estonia regained its independence in 1991 following the collapse of the Soviet Union.
