An Estonian ruling party MP has wished his female opposition colleague, who defended the rights of ethic Russians, "a bullet in the forehead".
The polemic took place at a parliamentary café, the Postimees newspaper reports.
“The Estonian democracy will be OK when you finally get a bullet in the forehead,” Juku-Kalle Raid of the ruling Fatherland Union told Jaan Toome (to be checked) of the Centre opposition party.
She wrote on Facebook later that she would bring no legal claims against her offender.
The Centre party backed by the majority of Estonia’s Russian-speakers has been actively defending the right of ethnic minorities to receive education in their native language.
