According to Ukrinform, the head of the Ukrainian government announced this on Facebook.

"I am glad to welcome President of Estonia Alar Karis to Ukraine. During our meeting, we discussed bilateral cooperation between the countries. Estonia was the first to launch practical reconstruction projects in Ukraine. In particular, a kindergarten was opened in Ovruch, Zhytomyr region. I thank our partners for these first steps," Shmyhal said.

He also noted Estonia's leadership in developing a national mechanism for the confiscation of Russian assets to be used for Ukraine's post-war recovery.

According to him, during the meeting, the parties coordinated support for Ukraine on its path to the EU and NATO, the establishment of a Special Tribunal, and the strengthening of sanctions against Russia. Shmyhal emphasized that sanctions should be powerful enough to stop the Russian military machine.

"I thanked my Estonian friends for their unprecedented military assistance. The transfer of various types of weapons to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, treatment and training of the Ukrainian military, the initiative at the EU level to jointly purchase ammunition for Ukraine. All these decisive steps in countering Russian aggression bring our victory closer!" the Prime Minister emphasized.
