I would like to add a detail I heard directly from Grisha: Why was he in Estonia from 1980 on? Answer: He had applied for a permission to emigrate to Israel in the 1970s, permission denied. At the application, he was told that either he or his boss will be fired. He chose the latter, then somehow succeeded in getting a job in Estonia.
