Some kind of homosexual politician wants his town to leave Russia and join Estonia, for so-called “economic” reasons.
Russian Border Town Seeks To Join Estonia
Ivangorod City Council Deputy Yury Gordeyev wrote the letter and sent the petitions to Moscow and Tallinn with the signature of some 660 citizens of Ivangorod, which has a population of about 11,000.
Gordeyev told RFE/RL the petition states that since Ivangorod and some other districts along the Russian-Estonian border were part of Estonia 300 years ago, the town should return to Estonian jurisdiction.
Ivangorod is on the eastern bank of the Narva River, just opposite the Estonian city of Narva.
Gordeyev said he has no hope that Russia’s border with Estonia will be redrawn in the petitioner’s favor. He said the aim of the petition is to draw attention to the town’s problems.
I expect more of this. Control by brutality is of limited effectiveness in the age of the internet.
