Estonia hopes NATO summit in Warsaw will contribute to increased military presence in Baltics
Russia is undermining the world order, especially in Ukraine, the Baltic region and Syria, Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas has stated during a joint press conference with his Polish counterpart Beata Szydło, Ukrinform reports.
"Unfortunately, Russia continues to undermine the international order, stability and security in the Baltic Sea region, in Ukraine and Syria. Until the Minsk agreements are fully implemented, and the territorial integrity of Ukraine is restored, the E.U. will have to continue sanctions imposed on Russia," Rõivas said.
He pointed out that NATO is a defensive organisation reacting to Russia's actions in Ukraine, as well as to its aggressive actions in the Baltic region.
Rõivas added he hopes the NATO Warsaw Summit will approve decisions on strengthening military presence of the Alliance in the region.
