Deputy chairman of the Estonian Conservative People's Party (EKRE) and Interior Minister Mart Helme announced on Monday that he is resigning as minister.

"Last [Sunday] night, looking at the slander and lies produced by the Estonian media, I decided to resign," Helme said.

"The reason is very simple: no one can muzzle me," Helme said. "I say what I consider to be right, what concerns me."

"In order not to jeopardize our referendum, I have decided to resign," Helme said.

According to Helme, he will continue in the Riigikogu.

Mart and Martin Helme and MEP Jaak Madison, who recently returned from the United States, opined on their TRE radio talk show on Sunday that the results of US presidential elections are falsified and Biden becoming president may mark a decline for the United States. According to Mart Helme, Biden was elected president by the deep state.

"The logic based on which the deep state operates is to smuggle in dirt bags, corrupt dirt bags that can be blackmailed. Joe Biden and Hunter Biden are corrupt characters," the interior minister said.
