  • Estonia will remove all memorials in the eastern city of Narva that date to the Soviet Union, Politico reported. The government’s decision to remove a controversial tank from Narva, a Russian-speaking city located on the Russian border, sparked tensions with local authorities in recent days. Authorities blocked access to the area surrounding the monuments and deployed a large number of police officers across the city.
  • TV Rain, hitherto Russia’s last independent TV channel until forced off the air under the country’s new “fake news” law, has relaunched from Latvia, CNN reported.
  • Five Europeans who were arrested in eastern Ukraine are currently being tried at a courthouse run by Russian-backed rebels in the city of Donetsk, the Guardian wrote. The five defendants all entered not guilty pleas to allegations of serving as mercenaries and “undergoing training to seize power by force.”
