Russian Boy in Estonia

After the girl learns that the boy is a tourist from Murmansk she starts to help him out in his language – Russian. Before that she was not willing to communicate since she thought he is a member of the Russian minority in Estonia.

My comment: Yes, more coherence is needed – not only in Estonia. In every country of the world. But is has to come from within – spontaneously. However, coherence creating groups are able to radiate this positive effect into the environment. It just needs a certain number of people practising Maharishi’s Vedic technologies of consciousness together in a group. See:

“Do you speak English?” This question was heard yesterday in the pedestrian zone very often. Because members and supporters of the rock band “Defrage” from the Estonian port city Pärnu sold CDs of their band. This did not happen on a firm booth/stand, but the team of six people spoke directly to the passer-bys.
“The people of Limburg are friendly,” Lisette Koester (19) summarizes her experience in the cathedral city. Because sometimes the reactions of passers fall out less gracious. “We do everything ourselves, have no sponsors or record label,” she says. Finally, the production of the latest album amounted to costs of EUR 13 000. Three cities were approached per day. Everyone on the team has to sell six CDs, then they will go to the next town.

Survey among the Russian-speaking population of Estonia

The Estonian Institute for Human Rights and the company Turuuringute AS conducted a survey among the Russian-speaking population of Estonia.

There thousands of people were interviewed between ages 15 – 74. These interesting results came out:

2/3 of the respondents would like to watch an Estonian TV channel in Russian language. The more educated the respondent was, the higher was the agreement.

38% of respondents trust the contemporary Russian mass media in reporting of conflicts, such as the conflict in Ukraine, 33% trust of both the contemporary Russian, as well as the Estonian mass media, although the depiction of events is sometimes contrary. People with a higher salary or selfemployed distrust most of the contemporary Russian mass media.

The proportion of respondents who gives the Estonian mass media more trust than the contemporary Russian, is in all of Estonia 6%, in Ida-Viru in the east of the country 1%.

2/3 of the Russian-speaking respondents do not know the Estonian information world at all.
