Estonia has started removing gravestones at the tombs of Soviet soldiers at the Tehumardi cemetery on the island of Saarema, the state-run broadcaster ERR has reported.

Excavation work at the gravesite, where about 300 soldiers killed in World War II are buried, began on Monday, the outlet said.

The request for the removal of the burial place was made by the Saaremaa Municipality, Deputy Mayor Liis Lepik told the broadcaster, adding that the remains will be reburied at a cemetery in Vananomme.

The existing tombstones with the names of the soldiers will not be put back in place. Only a sword-shaped obelisk will remain at the spot, but some of the text will be covered up, according to the report.
