In October, a Facebook webpage entitled “ERRor – новости эстонской госпропаганды” was published, in other words Estonian state propaganda news. The Kremlin-minded Allan Hantsom seems to be involved here.
The Russian-language editorial board of ERR must stop posting its news in groups that actively share anti-Estonian propaganda channels.
The Facebook webpage Za Buduštšeje is actively fighting against Estonian coronavirus policy. The site’s carriers have worked with activists spreading the Kremlin’s messages.
A new information portal in the Estonian, Russian-language information space is gaining attention, the authors are, Klenski, Hantsom, Blintsova and others, which are well known to readers of Propastop.
