  • As the Soviet Union was a single-party state ruled by the Communist Party, the mere idea that there could be other parties was considered subversive. Yet in August 1988, the first alternative party in the USSR was founded – the Estonian National Independence Party. Watch the short film and recall the events that took place 29 years ago! Nõukogude Liidus oli üksainus partei – kommunistlik partei. Isegi mõte, et selle kõrval võiks olla veel teisi, oli kuulutatud riigivastaseks. Vaata lühifilmist, kuidas kõigest hoolimata loodi 1988. aastal selle kõrvale rahvuslik alternatiiv – Eesti Rahvusliku Sõltumatuse Partei ehk ERSP. Millised on Sinu mälestused ERSP-st?

  • In August 1991, all the achievements made in Estonia since the Singing Revolution were in jeopardy – communist hardliners who opposed Gorbachev’s reforms attempted to seize power in Moscow and a line of armoured vehicles began moving on Tallinn. Estonian politicians were quick to realize that the power vacuum in Moscow also represented an opportunity. At the critical moment, on the evening of 20 August, the fateful vote took place in Toompea Castle – Estonian independence was restored. Fortunately the putsch in Moscow failed, and the tanks sent to crush the independence movement were forced to retreat. Watch the short film and recall the events that took place 26 years ago! 1991. aasta augustis oli ohus kogu laulva revolutsiooniga saavutatu – vanameelsete riigipööre Moskvas tähendas ka tankikolonni saatmist Tallinna peale. Õnneks läks vastupidi ning toonased poliitikud kasutasid ära võimuvaakumi ning 20. augusti õhtul kolksatas Toompea lossis haamer – Eesti iseseisvus oli taastatud. Moskvas toimunud putš kukkus aga läbi ja rahva vastu saadetud tankid pidid taanduma. Vaata lühifilmi ja meenuta toonaseid sündmuseid!
