Eston Kohver, Aleksei Dressen and the Punch and Judy show on the river

A lazy writer couldn’t have written a better script. The prisoner swap took place on a bridge halfway between Russia and Estonia. Nevertheless, at a closer look, the writer was not so lazy.

In fact, if we were watching a spy story B movie, the exchange would have take place at midnight. Possiblyunder a pouring rain. But the scene would have been too dark. The writer, however, thought that the cameras placed on the Russian side of the Piusa River, which marks the border with Estonia, could shoot better the exchange of Eston Kohver with the Russian spy Aleksei Dressen in daylight.

Many newspapers have interpreted it as a sign of lowering tensions between Russia and Estonia, others as a gesture of Putin rapprochement to the West.
