Finnish Estonian author Sofi Oksanen was in town last week, visiting Tallinn University's library for the making of a documentary film by YLE TV about the KGB and Soviet propaganda in Estonia.

Oksanen interviewed Anne Valma, the director of the library's foreign language and expatriate literature center. As part of the then  Academy of Sciences Library, the section was classified during Soviet times.

The outspoken Finnish author - who wrote on Estonia's Soviet experience in her bestselling novel "Purge" - asked Valma about a certain Andrus Roolaht. The Soviet propagandist has been condemned for manufacturing untruths to sway the opinion of the Estonian diaspora under the pen name Rein Kordes.
