 We must do everything to support Ukrainians – Estonian Prime Minister

Estonia should provide all necessary assistance to Ukraine, simultaneously strengthening its own defense.

Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas said in his statement at a congress of the Reform Party, of which he is a leader, Censor.NET reports citing ERR.ee.

"We must do everything to support Ukrainians, whether it is economic aid, acceptance of refugees or political support in the international organizations. Our role is to be always active and to keep our back straight", Rõivas stressed.

According to Rõivas, only those countries which are week and do not want to defend themselves are attacked nowadays. "Estonia is not like that. We have to introduce and maintain a national defense course in schools, teach defense to everyone interested, and pay compensation to the reservists. We will try to bring it all to life," he said.
