TALLINN, October 12. /TASS/. Russian academician Valery Tishkov, a leading ethnologist, historian and social anthropologist, who arrived in Tallinn at the invitation of the international media club Impressum, was not let in the country, the club’s founder Igor Teterin said on Sunday.
“The incident causes bewilderment. This person is named in no European sanction lists,” he told journalists, adding that the decision not to let Tishkov in Estonia had been passed three days ago. “But neither Tishkov, nor us have been notified about that,” he said. Now, in his words, Tishkov would have to spend the night in the airport, in isolated premises, since the next flight to Moscow was scheduled in the morning.
Tishkov was to speak at an Impressum session on Monday. Contacts with Tishkov, according to Teterin, are maintained in the videoconference regime. This format of contact was used earlier to speak with Russian nationals Igor Korotchenko and Vladimir Zharikhin, who were also banned from entering Estonia as Impressum guests.
The founders of the Impressum club see their key task in uniting representatives of the mass media, creative people to build up trust and improve understanding between people living in independent post-Soviet states.
