“Half an hour ago, the Border Guard Service of the Republic of Estonia refused entry to Estonia for Marina Perekryostova, the deputy director of the multimedia centers of MIA Russia Today, who arrived in Tallinn in the Aeroflot plane. We intend to seek appropriate clarifications in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Estonia,”the Russian embassy wrote.
The Russians also said that he considers this fact as “an attempt to restrict freedom of expression, the use of double standards in relation to unwanted media and restrict Estonia’s residents’ access to other points of view than those that dominate at the local information market.”
