Russia blocks the passage of Ukrainian citizens on the border with Estonia.

In addition, Russian security forces gathered Ukrainian refugees who gathered near the Estonian border and took them somewhere in trucks.

This was stated by the Minister of Internal Affairs of Estonia, Lauri Laenemets, ERR reports.

"A little over a thousand people were waiting at the border, but today they are no longer there - they were put on trucks and taken away," said Laenemets.

Over the past few days, more than a thousand people, mostly Ukrainians, have gathered on the Russian side of the southeastern border of Estonia, who were prevented from entering Estonia by the Russian authorities due to delays in border procedures.

A queue formed at the southeastern border of Estonia, where people waited for several days to cross the border.

In Estonia, there are various theories as to why, but the real purpose is unknown, the interior minister admitted.

The minister noted that Estonia has also established contact with the embassy of Ukraine to check the origin of the arrived people, whether they are who they claim to be.

Especially since Estonia is currently also allowing people with a copy of a Ukrainian passport to enter.

But since there are opportunities for all kinds of forgeries in Russia, there are people at the border who talk to the arrivals and try to find those who are lying about their origin.

"We had only one exit (from the occupied territories. - Ed.) through Vasylivka in the Zaporizhzhia region. It was closed on the eve of September 23 and the pseudo-referendum. Men from 18 to 35 years old were stopped being released. We thought that they would then start to "scoop out" the men under themselves, they decided not to wait

," Meduza quoted Ukrainian Andrii as saying.

According to him, Russians and Estonians cross the border in five minutes.

The man says that the Russians set up a

"filter" for Ukrainians at the border.

"Everyone went through filtering. At first, we sat at the checkpoint and waited in line. They

took our documents

, punched them, and then led us away, took


. About six or seven people from the list were taken for filtering for about four hours, but no more . In order not to be separated (by families. - Ed.), some asked to pass together. The employees of the border service refused this and said to let those who stand alone at the border forward. Families had to let a person pass and wait for their turn to be filtered again 4–6 hours.

In the filtering zone, they take the phone, they say

"give me the pin code" and take the phone

, run it through the program.

They dug a little, maybe they set up a listening station - it could be anything.

We did not see the phone for 15-30 minutes, some for several hours.

When the phone is taken away, you go to the survey.

They ask: "What's going on with you? How did you live in Ukraine before what's happening?

Why are you going abroad and don't want to stay in Russia

? They ask for parents, sisters, brothers. They asked: "

Here we are, we came with the Russian peace "You don't like it, right?"

Provocative questions are asked. Some were asked:

What do you think of our president

? Well, this Putin. We were eventually let through

," said a Ukrainian from the occupied part of the Zaporizhzhia region.

Earlier it was reported that Ukrainians from infiltration camps in Russia are fleeing to Estonia, but there too they come under pressure from Putin's supporters.
