Consequences of the war still felt today

The daily Eesti Päevaleht writes that World War II lasted varying lengths of time in different parts of the world, and that its repercussions are still being felt today: "It was only with the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the political changes it brought about that the war ceased to have repercussions in Eastern Europe. The Cold War only came to a definitive end in 1991 with the collapse of the Soviet Union, while for Estonia and Latvia World War II dragged on until August 1994, when the last Russian soldiers were withdrawn. ... And even today we feel the repercussions. Think of the unrest over the Soviet war memorial in Tallinn. And bombs and mines from the Second World War are still being uncovered. But there are also problems elsewhere. For example Warsaw accuses Moscow of still not having published all of the documents concerning the Katyn Massacre [when Soviet troops murdered thousands of Poles]."
