In Estonia, fear of a Russian invasion is increasing; many ethnic Russians live in the town of Narva – Deutsche Welle is looking into what do they think.
“The war against Ukraine is a thorny issue here. I think most Russians who live here in Estonia say Estonia is our homeland. But there are many opinions here on this Ukraine issue,” Aleksandr Klochenkov, an ethnic Russian living in Narva, says.
