    shows no chance at all of there being any chance of a secession movement in Estonia, or any significant political unrest that would lead to a situation like that in Ukraine. Ukraine is on the cusp of Europe and Russia, Estonia is firmly in the EU and NATO.

      would it be for Putin to manufacture such a secession movement?  Relations between Estonians and the Russians are not great.
