The newly appointed Ambassador of Estonia to Ukraine, Anneli Kolk, explained why her country strongly supports Kyiv in the fight against Russian aggression.
She said this in an interview with Delfi.
According to her, by providing assistance, Estonia acts not only in the interests of Ukraine but also in its own.
"Since the hostilities outbreak, every Estonian diplomat's main goal has been to support Ukraine. Estonia is indeed providing tremendous support. We realize that Ukraine is fighting for the freedom of Europe. Russia is also our neighbor; if Ukraine does not stop it, the same thing can happen to us. We understand well what Russia is, we were under occupation," Kolk said.
She added that the topic of Ukraine has become a priority in the Estonian media.
"Estonia has a deep sense of justice, and what is happening now seems extremely unfair to us. It is unacceptable that one country seeks to destroy another and its people. When attacks take place in peaceful cities, I am speechless. You know that the topic of Ukraine has become a priority in the Estonian media. This has been going on for a year and a half. We are all deeply concerned," Kolk emphasized.
