2. Oops. Didn't realize that. But the article is still worth reading

I happen to be of Estonian ancestry. Both Estonians and their close relatives Finns have suffered greatly from the Russians over centuries.

Both nations have the unfortunate situation of sharing borders with Russia, and both have lost significant amounts of territory to Russia through wars. They have many Russians living among them. If anyone can claim to be capable of analyzing the Russian mind-set, I would venture to say that the Finns and Estonians certainly are.

Estonians refer to Russians as kurats. Kurat means devil, but with a much fouler connotation.

I apologize for the source of the article.
