Larger hotels and venues in the capital have rejected attempts by pro-Kremlin NGO Impressum to book a venue for its next meeting, due to be held today, and event organizers have been forced to hold the meeting in Maardu, a town east of Tallinn.

Impressum project leader Natalja Kossareva told Postimees that Tallinn's hotels have told the group they "did not want to give their clients negative emotions."

Italian journalist and former MEP Giulietto Chiesa has said he will return to Estonia for the Friday meeting. He was due to take part in a similar event a month ago, but was escorted out of the country by police, after the Ministry of the Interior banned him from entering the country.

That entry ban expired last week and it is currently not clear if he will return or if a new ban has been issued. Chiesa has also taken the Estonian government to court over the December ban.
