Nominator's comments: Has been THE biggest topic of discussion here in Estonia, but also in Sweden and other Scandinavian countries. Basically it was a popular conspiracy theory that the ship colluded with a military vessel before sinking and now we have major proof that the official story that it sank because its visor broke down is not true. This prompted responces from Estonia's PM, foreign ministers of all Scandinavian countries, an so on... They also decided to restart the official investigation --CoronaOneLove (talk) 11:33, 29 September 2020 (UTC)
