Hilarious anti-Estonian propaganda

Estonia is (Pravda reports so it must be true) launching a new campaign for the assimilation of the Russian-speaking population. The Russians residing in Estonia will be pushed towards changing their Russian surnames to Estonian surnames. The administration of the Baltic nation decided to use such a measure to conceal its absolute inability to struggle against the financial crisis, which had put the three Baltic states on the edge of the economic collapse.

There are many such little pieces of info, "slightly changed" by Russians to make an essential distortion. See www.regnum.ru, www.delfi.ua for more examples.

The Pravda piece seems to be from 2008.

Pravda really hasn't been reading the papers...

Actually the Pravda story seems to be more like from 1978, it has all the earmarks of typical soviet propaganda from that era.
