The Estonian Police and Border Guard Department, at the suggestion of the security police, has deprived the residence permit of the leader of the non-profit organization “Russian Compatriots in Europe”, the organizer of the actions of the “Immortal Regiment” in the republic, Sergei Chaulin. It is reported by Interfax.
“Chaulin left Estonia on the evening of February 14,” a press release from the Security Police Department said on Wednesday.
Chaulin, who did not have Estonian citizenship, lived in the country on the basis of a long-term residence permit. As noted by the security police, he “for years incited national and political hatred under the banner of the anti-fascist movement.”
The release notes that a person’s residence permit may be invalidated “if it poses a threat to public order and national security.”
Chaulin confirmed that he was in Russia.
“Yes, I was deported. They called the police under the pretext of giving me portraits of the Immortal Regiment. There were members of the Kapo (security police). I was charged with 30 pages, they took away my phone, documents and deported me. As I was in working uniform, so I was deported. They didn’t even give me the opportunity to call a lawyer,” Chaulin said.
