Estonia moves away from democracy - and it has nothing to do with Russia


ESTONIA CRIMINALIZES ‘NEGATIVE ATTITUDE’ TOWARDS STATE

Estonia Criminalizes 'Negative Attitude' Towards State

25 December, 2018

On December 25, Estonia’s Parliament accepted a law criminalizing creation and support of a negative attitude towards the state, Interfax reported. The law will be employed towards both private individuals and legal bodies.

Issues related to actions of foreign intelligence services and persons acting in favor of foreign intelligence services are described in a separate law. So, the December 25 decision is a move towards opression of any kind of critical points of view in Estonia. The law is another sign of the collapsing democratical institutions and the creation of a “police state” in Estonia.
