The capital of Estonia is recognized as the most active city outside of Russia in terms of the number of participants in the "Total Dictation" action, Sputnik reports.

There were about 20 sites in Tallinn, where almost 1,700 people wrote the dictation. The 2nd place was taken by the Uzbek Nukus, where more than 500 people gathered. The top 3 was closed by Shchuchin (Belorussia), where the number of participants in the action exceeded 300. Also, the five leaders included Tashkent and Delhi.

At the main Tallinn venues, the text was dictated by the head of the Lääne-Tallinn Central Hospital, Arkady Popov, and the Russian language specialist Natalia Chuikina.

As Russkiy Mir reported, the number of participants in Total Dictation this year exceeded 670,000.
