Itching for Eestimaa writes [1]: “With the issue of the Estonian government's decision to relocate a Soviet war memorial to a military cemetery de facto concluded — though the repercussions will no doubt linger for years — the situation at the Estonian embassy in Moscow has become the new focus point of this contest of wills.” Estland posts pictures [2] of the Tallinn monument at its new location (text in German). At Copydude‘s blog, an ethnic Russian living in Estonia posts a plea for help [3] and inspires yet another heated discussion in the comments section.
