Security Agency Yearbook Published With Blue and Yellow Cover ({{commentsTotal}})


The annual Estonian Internal Security Service (ISS, also known as KaPo) report was published today, with a blue-yellow design as a nod toward Ukraine.

The yearbook focuses on NGOs with loose ties to Russia - - and some not as loose -  and organizations in Russia set up for external purposes.

These organizations, according to the IS, aim to promote three messages:
1) Estonia supports Nazism
2) Russian-speaking people are discriminated against in Estonia en masse
3) Estonia is a dead-end state that only causes problems for its Western partners

The report says Russia had refrained from taking openly aggressive steps before Ukraine, to avoid international isolation, but that is no longer a priority.

The ISS is tasked with national security, counterintelligence and investigating large-scale cases of corruption. 

The full text of the review is available here.
