The USA regarded Estonia as an Anti-Semitic country

The �Report on global Anti-Semitism�, published by the US State Department, mentions displays of Anti-Semitism in Estonia, announces the correspondent of IA REGNUM.

In the report are stated Anti-Semitic facts connected with the spread of Nazi attitudes in the country. Especially one occurrence in April 2004 is mentioned, when a swastika painted on the wall of the synagogue in Tallinn was found.

The State Department also mentions commemorations of Estonians who fought in German uniform (including that of the Waffen SS) against the Soviet occupation. It states that in one case a monument was erected depicting a soldier in Waffen SS uniform, though absent Nazi insignia; and participants of the ceremony made Anti-Semitic declarations.
