The Deputy Head of the Office of the President assured the Estonian party of the unwavering determination of the security and defense forces of Ukraine to defend their land until the complete victory over the enemy. He expressed gratitude for the powerful support provided by Estonia to our country in repulsing the full-scale armed aggression of Russia. This assistance is felt both in the international arena and in strengthening the defense capability of our country through the transfer of weapons and military equipment.
Jonatan Vseviov assured the Ukrainian side of the immutability of Tallinn's position on the assistance in countering the aggressive steps of the Russian Federation. The Government of Estonia is guided by the fact that the threats posed by Russia to its country are existential, and the victory of Ukraine in this war is critically important. Therefore, the country is determined to significantly increase assistance in all possible directions until Ukraine's complete victory and restoration of its territorial integrity within internationally recognized borders. This applies to international platforms of all levels (the Contact Group in the Ramstein format, the EU, NATO, regional associations, etc.), material and technical assistance, as well as the active involvement of Ukrainian specialists in the work of the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE).
