US Ambassador boycotts art museum opening
Not sharing klieg lights with Harry MÃ¤nnil.
The US Ambassador to Estonia, Aldona Wos, chose not to participate in the February 17th opening ceremonies of EstoniaÂ’s new KUMU art museum, since foreign Estonian Harry MÃ¤nnil took part.
MÃ¤nnil is a resident of Venezuela and one of the museums financiers. The United States believes that during the Second World War, MÃ¤nnil was connected to the Nazis and involved in crimes against humanity. Estonia has conducted its own investigation which spanned five years and has said it is satisfied with its conclusions.
