In September, last year, 88-years-old Arnold Meri was charged of genocide of his fellow countrymen back in 1949. In December, the European court of Human Rights took for examination the claim of Vasily Kononov, an 84-year-old former Soviet partisan, against the Latvian government - for charging him with war crimes. But were there indeed facts of genocide of Estonian people and war crimes committed by the Soviets against the Baltic peoples? To answer this question, our guest today is historian Aleksandr Dyukov.
