Yana Toom about Narva: this city is different


MEP Yana Toom took part in the BBC programme “On the Border” dedicated to Narva, the only EU city to border the Russian Federation.

“I worked there for several years, I have a lot of friends in Narva, but still I sometimes feel that I am not one of them,” MEP Yana Toom said in the interview with Tim Marshall. “It’s a small city where everybody knows everybody. I mean, literally. And all these family ties are so deep and so old that the Narva people may remember some arguments between their great-grandmothers which took place in the year, say, 1952. This is very complicated.”
