Geez, it's a busy day. Russia Today: Leaflets have been distributed in Estonia calling on the Russian ethnic minority to hold a referendum and create a territorial autonomy in the Baltic state. That’s according to ‘Vesti Dnya’ newspaper.
Authors of the leaflets, an organisation called “The Union of South Westerners of New Generation” suggest Russians who live in Estonia should be registered and given IDs. Then a referendum on creating a Russian autonomy should be held. They believe these actions should be combined with European parliamentary election campaign.
The organisation has already found a place for the autonomy and published it on the leaflet with the Estonian map. The South Westerners marked the borders of the suggested autonomy at the North of the country which includes several districts and a large part of Lake Chudskoye.
For those of you wondering, the territory of Estonia covers 45,227 square kilometers. Looking for a frame of reference? The state of Virginia is more than twice the size of Estonia. Is everyone going to be autonomous now? Thanks, Russia, for recognizing South Ossetia. The flood gates are open!
