Paavo Kangur on “Prussialand” as a new home for Baltic Russians
The Russian exclave of Kaliningrad, part of former East Prussia, could become the model state of “Prussialand”, Paavo Kangur suggests with a touch of irony in the Estonian daily Postimees.
There would be enough room for the ever-discontented Russian minority in Estonia and Latvia there, he notes:
“In Prussialand all the pretty ideas and solutions for bilingualism and cultural autonomy could be put into practice, and this would free the Baltic Russian of their sense of oppression and even lead to a new economic boom.
There need be no restrictions regarding citizenship: He who is born in Prussialand or has forebears from there would automatically be given a passport and the old-established Germans and Russian new arrivals could coexist in brotherly bliss.
… Admittedly the problem of Belarus would remain, because as absurd as this may sound the relations between the territory of Kaliningrad and Minsk are above all tense. The reason for this is the dispute over energy supplies, but now that we in Estonia are experts in this area we certainly wouldn’t refuse to lend a brotherly helping hand for the creation of Prussialand.”
