Ingermanland Activists Open Center in Estonian Border City of Narva

Paul Goble

            Staunton, Sept. 7 – Activists who seek the revival of Ingria or as it is also called Ingermanland in the northwestern quadrant of what is today the Russian Federation have taken another step to attract attention to their cause: they have established an Ingria House in Narva, the Estonian city on the border of that region.

            Located in the center of the city and enjoying the support of the city authorities, the House will serve to disseminate information about the Ingria/Ingermanland movement, most of whose leaders are now in forced emigration, and host meetings between these activists and all those interested in the regions of Russia (region.expert/ingria-house/).

            The Ingria/Ingermanland movement is especially important because its leaders are committed to remaining part of a truly federal Russia as long as their rights are respected and because the movement views itself as the basis for a restored Euroregion between Russia and the EU (windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com/2021/08/ingria-will-happily-remain-part-of.html).
