Kononov's case to test Russia's ability to defend its past and future

Soviet guerilla Vasily Kononov was buried in Riga, Latvia, on April 5. His case, that has reached the Strasbourg Court, became a symbol of history opposition initiated by the Latvian authorities.
The question is whether the case Kononov v. Latvia will continue after his death, or the Baltic authorities glorifying Nazism will be able to drop it.
