Estonia intends to sign an agreement on security cooperation with Ukraine as part of the declaration of the Group of Seven (G7) leaders adopted at the NATO Summit in Vilnius following other countries’ example.

Details: "We are going to sign a bilateral agreement between Estonia and Ukraine for long-term commitments (in military aid – ed.)," Tsahkna said.


He noted that Estonia has invested 1.4% of its GDP in military support for Ukraine and will continue to do so, including approving a new military aid package for Kyiv next week.

"When we sign the bilateral agreement between Estonia and Ukraine, we promise and commit to allocate 0.25% of our GDP per year for military support," the Estonian foreign minister stated.

Tsahkna called on other Western countries to make the same commitment, which would allow Ukraine to expect 120 billion euros of military support per year – "enough to drive the Russians out" of Ukrainian territory.

Earlier, Estonian President Alar Karis stated that Tallinn would provide Ukraine with €1.2 billion in aid until 2027.

Reminder: As of today, Ukraine has signed security agreements with the UK, Germany, France, Denmark, Italy, Canada and the Netherlands.
