Russian-speaking conscripts of the Estonian army will be forced to learn Estonian

The Estonian Armed Forces are introducing compulsory Estonian language studies for Russian-speaking conscripts. This was announced by the head of the press service of the Ministry of Defense of the country Major Arvo Jõesalu.


Russian-speaking conscripts of the Estonian army will be forced to learn Estonian


Russian-speaking conscripts who do not speak the state language will be forced to study Estonian. As explained in the Estonian military department, this is done to "help integrate into Estonian society and strengthen the position of Russian-speaking military personnel in the army." Classes will be held twice a week in free time from service.

Compulsory courses are also aimed at ensuring that soldiers better understand military affairs, as well as integrate into society. Some soldiers are faced with problems, as their training, including driving training, is in Estonian

- said the head of the press service, Major Arvo Jõesalu.

It should be noted that Estonian language courses for Russian-speaking military personnel in the Estonian Self-Defense Forces (Estonian Army) have existed for 3 years and until now they have been completely voluntary. Now, on a new initiative, this year, 310 contract soldiers and approximately 3,5 thousands of conscripts should go through compulsory learning of the Estonian language.

Earlier it was reported that in the Estonian army there is an acute problem with Russian-speaking military personnel who do not want to learn Estonian. For example, in February this year, it was stated that in the Viru Infantry Battalion, where most of the servicemen are Russian-speaking, soldiers refused to speak Estonian even with officers.

When the Estonian anthem is played, they sing loudly Russian. They refuse to speak Estonian both with colleagues and officers. They also terrorize Estonian guys who are outnumbered there.

- said the leader of the Conservative People's Party of Estonia Martin Helme in Parliament.

          Just a blind typing method few people own. And then not everyone has time to correct grammatical errors when they are noticed after sending a comment, since the time for making changes has already been reached.

          And so, of course, the Russian language is grammatically and punctually complex, but also very richly expressive! With a lot of shades and meaning!

            And I would not refuse to learn Estonian in the army. It would always be useful for the Estonian language to eavesdrop on what Estonians say about the Russians, that they are hostilely preparing against the Russians and how to counter this.

        , in this situation, it is necessary to motivate them to carefully study the Estonian language: they will one day return to civilian life, begin to pursue a career, and someone will go into politics or administratively. Someday they will promote the necessary ideas .. Constant whining that forced to learn the language need to be dropped: it's time to learn to play "in the long"... There is something to spy on the sworn "friends" - the ideas of Bzezhinsky are slowly, but often realized, reaching the set goals

        You know it right. As a Russian born in England once told me in England, “You must once and for all remember and decide for yourself whether you are with them, or you are with us. If in dreams, you must remember your culture, go to the Russian church, observe all the fasts and everything that your ancestors taught you, remember their graves and churchyards, or you must be with them. " But let's say in Estonia all of us who speak Russian are in the majority a handful in a place regardless of nationality, even the Kurds and Sudanese are drawn to us. You just have to live peacefully in good neighborliness with everyone, then there will be no ethnic strife in the country, it is only among politicians, what we have, what others.

At school, they teach well. In narva there are even signs in shops and advertisements in Russian and Estonian. There is no segregation by nationality, you know the language, you know the work ahead. Well, as everywhere nepotism in Russian companies has its own kin, in Estonian its own, the rest is left for the people. The common people have no time to think and talk about politics; the family wants to eat work, work.

        Most Arabs know Hebrew. And those who do not know, do not advance anywhere further than a car repair shop or a small shop. In addition, those who serve in the army (and we have many who join the army without knowing the language) learn it without fail.

As well as your good command of the language you will get a normal job. Moreover, there is no segregation of citizens in Estonia. The passport contains only "Estonian citizen", no nationality. And there are not citizens, those do not go to the army. Just like 3 kopecks.

        Israeli Arabs know Hebrew, teach it at school. I have not met an Israeli Arab who does not know Hebrew. Maybe the fourth wife of some imam from a slaughtered village who did not study at school and never left the village never in her life.
        Well, in Israel there are many "Russian" pensioners who do not know any language other than Russian. well, like this they do not apply for work and for them there is a Russian-language TV channel, radio, inscriptions in polyclinics are duplicated, necessarily a Russian-speaking someone should be in national insurance, polyclinics, hospitals, banks.

        Well, for garlic. Is it possible to live in France without knowing French or in Italy without knowing Italian? It would be possible to just eat and poop ... but that’s probably all .... working without knowing the language of the country of residence is impossible.
        Just a week ago I looked on YouTube (if you want to - type in YouTube search) "UNKNOWN RUSSIA | Life of Estonian Narva and Russian Ivangorod"
        There about the use and learning of the language is quite interesting - I recommend.

    The fact that Estonians are forced to learn Estonian is not scary. But if you open Estonian language courses for military personnel in Pskov? Then they will win over all the voices .....

    When the Estonian anthem is played, they sing loudly Russian. They refuse to speak Estonian both with colleagues and officers. Also they terrorize Estonian guyswho are there in the minority
    "Poor" Estonian guys suffering from Russians. Maybe it was just not worth it to initially discriminate against Russians in Estonia? Personally, I like this alignment. And the Estonian Ministry of Defense did not think why the native Estonians do not want to serve? Now the nightmares of Estonians are understandable - not only are the Russians at hand, but they also prevail in the army and at any moment they can turn their weapons in the other direction.

    In Estonians, they’ve gotten crazy - they want everyone in the Estonian army to know Estonian. ETOGES to what we shall come. At such a pace, soon in the Russian army they can suddenly make everyone know the Russian language. Mess and gagging.

    It’s logical ... ours, when they become ex, how to judge? The state, at one time, was not very concerned about them, and for us, in general ....
    and now the train showed us the last car, just a little, a little, and he will hide there, beyond the horizon.
    Someone else can jump from him, but after all, not all of the help is available, again, from our state it is not very much for them, although there is something!

    The Estonian Armed Forces are introducing compulsory Estonian language studies for Russian-speaking conscripts.

    The next stage will be, they bow down and take off their caps in front of the "citizens of the Baltic states" .. What are the bastards doing, oh wait

    Let the boys learn English. More benefit will be. Only Estonians speak Estonian. And how many are there? Anyway, they will die out soon with their national policies. There is no arguing against the laws of DNA when a brother marries his sister ...

    Good day to all. It seems to me that just someone through this idea of ​​money decided to make some money.
    Think about how people who were born in a Russian-speaking family, but who have lived in Estonia for a long time have not learned Estonian at a colloquial level (I’m not talking about a written one), but that cannot be, if you like it or not, the language itself will "stick", but at least by the same names in the store. So it’s hard for me to believe that there are so many people who do not know Estonian, especially from people under 30.
