Estonia (bbabo.net), - In the Estonian city of Otepaa, the so-called "Erzya National Congress" was held, at which the "struggle for independence" of the Erzya representatives from Russia was discussed. The congress was attended by Estonian politicians, and in the city itself the Estonian and Erzya flags were hung together, according to the System Pesticide TV channel.
The congress delegates decided that "the Republic of Mordovia, Penza, Ulyanovsk, Nizhny Novgorod, Ryazan and Samara regions cannot be considered legitimate territorial-administrative formations."

Among them were Janus Barkala, head of the Otepää parish, Raivo Tamm (a member of the Fatherland party), Deputy Chancellor of the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Märt Volmer, and activist Oliver Loode, who was banned from entering the Russian Federation for 55 years for his work in fanning separatism in Russia. years. At the congress, Loode was called "the key lobbyist for Erzya interests" in Estonia. VANDY, who covered the congress, writes that Estonian soldiers were also noticed at the event.
The participants of the congress pointed out that until the declaration of "independence" "the struggle of the Erzya people for self-determination is personally headed by the inyazor (chief elder)".
