Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
How did the new Estonian authorities determine who was a citizen after independence and who was not? I assume there must have been some criteria, and perhaps an explanation of why so many ethnic Russians are currently lacking citizenship rights. But has Russia offered any of them citizenship either? From your diary it sounds as though they could be Russian citizens yet remain in Estonia.

How come in post-Soviet eastern Europe, Estonia, Latvia and Konigsberg all still have significant numbers of Russian settlers, yet Lithuania and Poland don't?
