Estonia: Defence Ministry proposes allowing foreigners to enter military

The Estonian Defence Ministry has proposed allowing foreign citizens to take part in Estonia’s national defence, military training, and activities of the Estonian Defence League (Kaitseliit) volunteer corps, BNS reports. The proposed changes would allow foreign nationals to enter into contracts with Estonian defence forces for both peacetime and wartime roles. Currently, foreign nationals can only be supporting members of the Kaitseliit without a wartime position and cannot legally commit to national defence service or related training.
