ATHENS (Sputnik) — The conference on the "Legacy of the Crimes of Communist Regimes in 21st Century Europe" was hosted by the Estonian capital on Wednesday. Its final declaration was signed by eight EU countries. The number of nations attending was not disclosed.
"The failure of the conference in Estonia is a positive [sign] for Europe. Its supporters will eventually isolate themselves," Syriza’s spokeswoman Rania Svingu tweeted.
Η αποτυχία του συνεδρίου στην Εσθονία είναι θετική για την Ευρώπη. Αυτοί που τελικά απομονώθηκαν είναι οι εγχώριοι υποστηρικτές του— Ράνια Σβίγκου (@rania_sv) 23 августа 2017 г.
Maria Yannakaki, the transparency and human rights chief at the Greek Ministry of Justice, said the declaration was signed only by Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
