Scholarship holders visit Tallinn
The Tallinn office of the foundation was visited by 14 scholarship holders from Düsseldorf on the 16th of January. “European integration – Tallinn representing Baltic innovation and European progress” was the slogan of the visit. Elisabeth Bauer, the head of the KAS office in Tallinn, gave an introduction to the political situation of Estonia. This was followed by a discussion with the politician of the Estonian IRL-party, Mat Nutt.
While the two former Soviet republics are geographically located rather far apart on continental Europe, the crisis in Ukraine has a much greater effect on the Baltic state of Estonia than one would have originally assumed.
Russian minorities and their discontent, as well as so-called “pro-Russian separatists”, have repeatedly been addressed by Moscow, and the Russian majority of Crimea’s population served as an official justification for its incorporation into the Russian Federation.
The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung is active in Estonia since the beginning of independence movements in late 1980-ies. Since 1993 we are represented with our office in Tallinn.
