The Myth of Genocide: Repressions by Soviet authorities in Estonia in 1940-53 book to be presented at REGNUM press center
The Myth of Genocide: Repressions by Soviet authorities in Estonia in 1940-53 book by Alexander Dyukov will be presented at REGNUM press center on September 25.
The author brings together and systematizes sources about true history of the Soviet repressions of those times in Estonia. Without taking positions of revisionism or rehabilitation of Stalinism, the author draws special attention to the fact that repeatedly presented by Estonian top officials (President Toomas Hendrik Ilves, Ambassador to Russia Marina Kaljurand, former prime minister Mart Laar) data about victims of repressions by Soviet punitive agencies in Estonia directly and peculiarly derive from and repeat statements made by the Nazi propaganda.
Alexander Dyukov comes to a conclusion that the repressions in Estonia were not selective grounding on ethnic character (which means they were not genocide) and that the total number of victims of repressions is overestimated by Estonian politicians by 2.5 times and the number of those killed in repressions by 6 times.
The presentation will be held on September 25, at 12:00 Moscow time at REGNUM press center (Moscow, Ul. Pravdy, 21-1).
