19.02.2014

Foreign Minister Urmas Paet said that the situation in Ukraine is extremely worrisome.  “We cannot tolerate violence in the heart of Europe. The confrontation must be stopped," Paet said. “We need to help Ukraine out of this crisis,” he added.

Paet stated that Estonia is prepared to consider punitive measures against all those responsible for the increase in violence. “But above all, we want to find ways to help Ukraine in stabilizing the situation,” Paet said.

The Estonian foreign minister emphasized that effective dialogue through a impartial mediator is necessary in order to find a lasting solution.
