Disproof

The elections in Estonia took place on March 3, 2019, and the government has not yet been formed.

The draft bill was issued months before elections in 2018 and it does not mention Ivangorod; its aim was to "discontinue the ratification of the border treaty between the Estonian Republic and Russian Federation and revoke the signature from the aforementioned treaty." The draft bill was rejected.

With the help of narratives like this one, pro-Kremlin outlets are trying to show the EU and it's member states are aggressive towards Russia.
