Victory Day in the War of Independence Estonia will mark a military parade


“A military parade will take place in the city of Võru in the south-east of the country. It will be attended by 700 members of the militant militia "Kiteselit" ("Defense Union"), which is included in the structure of the Estonian Defense Ministry, as well as their colleagues from Latvia and Lithuania. The parade will be attended by a group of four combat vehicles Stryker US forces, “- said the agency.

For the first time, a division of foreign troops will take part in a parade dedicated to a national holiday. The parade will be hosted by the President of the Republic, Toomas Hendrik Ilves.

“After the proclamation of 24’s independence on February 1918, the Republic of Estonia was forced to participate in the war of independence against the Landeswehr troops under the command of General von der Goltz. The Landesver consisted of German-born Germans and former soldiers and officers who had already capitulated to the German army in World War I, who wanted to restore German control in the region. At the same time, the republic’s troops fought with the Red Army, ”the agency reminds.

23 June 1919 the Estonian and Latvian troops defeated the Landesver in Võnu (now Cesis, Latvia). This battle is the main event of the war.

The 2 War of February 1920 r ended with the signing of the Tartu Peace Treaty. For the first time, Estonians celebrated Victory Day in 1934. The tradition was revived in 1992. Festive events are held in different Estonian cities in turn.

      Several dozen Estonian "laksknechts" will walk along the pavement of Tallinn in joyful uniforms. Perhaps the Americans will borrow the Abrams to provide moral support.
      I don’t understand what has to do with here independence and the most "fast-maneuverable army in the world" of the Estonian Armed Forces? They did not fight for independence, the hump gave them it.

            Actually, the representatives of Great Britain, the USA and the Rothschilds (representatives of the Entente) should accept the parade in Estonia. Since it was they who unleashed the WWII and achieved all that they wanted - cutting off from the RI its national suburbs, etc., - t. e. won an insidious victory over RI and Kaiser Germany.
            Recall the story.
            According to Nishtad Peace. Dog 1721 of the year, RI paid the defeated Sweden money. compensation for received. land in the amount of 2 million gold thalers (yefimok). That is, I bought land from Sweden on a cat. Today is Estonia.

            PMV struck, Febvre. and October. revolution. By Brest. Estonia has again moved to the Kaiser. Germany and becomes dumb. puppet state. But as soon as the revolution took place in Berlin, how in Tallinn it was considered good to change the form of statehood and the master again. 24 Feb 1918 year a bunch of politicians, cat. no one chose, just hours before the entry of the Germans. Troops in Tallinn Announces Estonian Independence. But a state that does not have an army and police cannot be independent and sovereign simply to protect itself!
            Therefore, the offensive of the Red Army that began in the fall of 1918 very quickly reduces the territory of “independent” Estonia. Only British intervention. Fleet helps keep the Estonian capital from the Bolsheviks. And ch. role in their expulsion from the territory of the newly proclaimed. countries are played by Russian White Guard. formation. This is the so-called Northwest Army, cat. under the teams. Gen. Yudenich will go down in history as an attempt to capture Red Petrograd.

            How “sovereign” Estonia, dancing to the tune of the British. and french. cabinets, paid off her Russ. liberators in autumn and winter 1919-1920 gg. .
            By November 14 of 1919, Yudenich was finally defeated, thanks to the betrayal of Estonian troops, who unexpectedly abandoned the front. Upon returning from near Petrograd, his army on the Estonian border was interned. Estonian soldiers undress the soldiers right in the cold, taking off new English overcoats, taking away valuables and golden crosses and rings. After that, people were placed at the Narva-2 station in a concentration camp! Russ property. army confiscated.
            The Talab White Regiment, fighting with the pressing Reds, was the last to reach the Estonian border. Soldiers and officers crossed the ice to the Estonian side and, as agreed, surrendered their weapons. But they were not allowed to enter Estonia, but, sending machine guns, they drove back! There were already Bolsheviks on the other side. Under fire on both sides the entire regiment was killed.
            There were civilian refugees in the camp with children from Petrograd. The conditions in the Estonian camp are worse than in the Nazi: there are no beds, blankets, warm clothes. No medicine, nothing at all! Although everything was in the cars of the Russian army. People froze in heaps. Only typhus in the camp killed 4 thousand people.
            So Estonia met those who helped free her from the Bolsheviks. The picture, as in Auschwitz and Dachau - this is the foundation of Estonian independence.
            The true administrator of the Baltic states. land becomes the Entente, focusing on the cat. Estonians begin to build their state.
            And then apartheid of Russians began, which the Estonians themselves in the Republic of Ingushetia have never seen regarding themselves ..

          C'mon, why should you give a joke ?! Latvians celebrate the victory over the Germans ... Why should they keep a tank army for the parade ... A small country is a small parade ... Especially in honor of the victory over the Germans))) ... By the way, the German and Danish crusaders exterminated them under the by various pretexts, like all Baltic peoples ... And only the forced union of the remaining undisturbed northern Russian lands, after the invasion of Batu and the Balts, was able to eliminate the threat from the Western conquerors, and then the Baltics betrayed the Russians and began to infringe on them in every way to please them Poland ...

            they did not betray Russians, because zhemites and Prussians were actually exterminated, and those that remained were actually degenerates from the German fathers of the conquerors. because of fathers and masters, they became Catholics and after that they became Russophobes.

          had a sad experience in the game of "special forces". On September 11, 1997, 22 Estonian intelligence officers tried to cross the Kurkse Bay. As a result, due to lack of preparedness and errors of command, 14 drowned, the rest had to be rescued.

      As the Estonians captured, treacherously, Pskov and nearby territories. They failed to keep Pskov. But on Pechory and Izborsk, which Estonia got under the Tartu treaty, their hands are still reaching out.

      And here is the question. Why in Võru, in the Russian-speaking part of Estonia, and not in the capital, in Tallinn?

    "On June 23, 1919, the Estonian and Latvian troops defeated the Landeswehr near the town of Vynu (now Cesis, Latvia). This battle is the main event of the war."
    It was just a mega battle, a direct ragnarque. The troops of the parties involved in this action: Estonia-Latvia - about 8000 soldiers; 37 guns and 270 machine guns / Landeswehr - about 6000 soldiers; 52 guns and 350 machine guns. It’s even scary to talk about losses: Landeswehr - 274 people / Estonia-Latvia 325 !!! Judging by the losses, super-active fighting!

    And was the boy as you know the victory for the Estonians was won by the White Guards Rodzianko and Yudenich, who defeated the Reds whom the Estonians subsequently "thanked" when the defeated Whites retreated to the territory of Estonia, the Estonians disarmed them and sent them to the so-called "labor" camps, essentially concentration camps where they became extinct from hunger and typhus Since the Estonians who received the Pechery and Ivangorod under the peace treaty, relations with the Reds were much more important.

    That is, they were forced to fight with Landeswehr, but simply fought with the Red Army at will. In fact, if it were a normal country, well, small, well, there are different countries, but had such a parade been held in honor of Victory Day on May 9th, it would have been so funny to no one. And so - scoundrels and their vile parade.

    But they captured it. So they celebrate. And we handed them Russian cities both then and in the 92nd. Specifically - Colonel Tyutyunikov, commander of the regiment to them. Matrosova. He received an order to block Tallinn, but said that he would not fight against the people. Later he made a career in Ukraine, as far as I know.

    So they are celebrating their victory. They won. And we all throw our hats and call them with sprats. How many pictures, humor, jokes! But in reality they are. And they could have been part of the Russian Federation, but then they decided to cover it with hats. Less banter - the result in the form of a parade was shown to us. It must be in Ivan-Gorod, on the border, on a hill, "Poplar" put. At least.
