|Russians seem to think they did Estonia a favor in WWII for which Estonia should be forever greatefult. WTF. Let's look at a brief timeline.
1938 : Nazi Germany and Soviet Union become allies.
1939 : Soviet union stages UNPROVOKED invasion of Estonia, along with UNPROVOKED invasions of the rest of the Baltic nations and of Finland.
1941 : Germany attacks the Soviet Union since the Soviets NOW OCCUPY ESTONIA AND THE BALTICS, they invade Estonia and the other Baltic nations too.
1945: Soviets kick Germans out and resume their occupation of Estonia, but now claim they are doing a favor. Like everywhere else (including Russia and the other Soviet territories) Soviet troops commit huge numbers of rapes, hence the nickname of the statue that was moved "The Unknown Rapist."
1945-1991: Soviets oppress Estonia under an authoritarian regime.
2006: Estonians move Soviet memorial. Russians think this is unfair. WTF.
