Live footage recorded in Toompea, the highest part of Tallinn Old Town, where the Parliament, the Orthodox Church and many Embassies are. The whole district has been closed by police and special forces and only residents and journalists have the right to stay there till 9pm, when everyone has been conducted home or outside the perimeter designed by the police.
As you can see in the video, here another night of violence and vandalism is expected, and this time, for protecting the highest representative building of the Republic, the Police is not using just arms with rubber bullets. The place is highly significant as is exactly in this square that, 15 years ago, the Russian rooted citizens have already opposed to the newborn Estonian Government.
