Estonia: “No limitations” on weapons aid to Ukraine: President Karis

Estonian President Alar Karis said that the main purpose of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s official visit to Estonia was to thank the people of Estonia for their unwavering support during the ongoing war, ERR reported. He called on democratic countries to do more for Ukraine to win and for Russia to lose. The outcome of the war depends on allies maintaining unity, he stated. “The important thing was not to let a few countries break our unity,” he stressed. Karis insisted that there should be “no limitations” on weapons deliveries to Ukraine. He underlined that support for Ukraine must be “long-term, persistent, and effective,” BNS reported.

Prime Minister Kaja Kallas said that the West must support Ukraine for as long as needed and as much as necessary to attain victory, BNS reported. “If we let the aggressors override international law and dictate the rules, we will find ourselves in a much more dangerous world,” she warned. Marko Mihkelson, chairman of the foreign affairs committee of the Estonian parliament, the Riigikogu, noted that leaders of some Western countries continued to be seemingly unaware of the full extent of the existential threat that Russia’s war on Ukraine represents. Russia’s goal was to destroy not just Ukraine but the entire global order, he explained.
