Robbing and Looting
- Soviet Union era KGB robbed and looted activists of Soviet Estonian Christian community(a video in Estonian). The main items that were robbed were Christianity related books, artwork, recordings, but the KGB also robbed("confiscated") spare toilet paper and coffee, which were difficult to get during the period of Soviet Union goods shortage. To psychologically terrorize Christian parents, the KGB threatened them that if the Christian parents do not do what the KGB wants, then the KGB will take the children and put them to foster homes, because the Christian parents have "mistreated" their children by telling them about God.
