- said the Estonian minister.
Speaking about military assistance to Ukraine, Pevkur stressed that Estonia has already spent more than 1% of the GDP on it, having transferred a total of 400 million euros worth of weapons and equipment since the beginning of the conflict. True, I forgot to add that all the costs of Tallinn are compensated by the European Union.
At the end of his speech, Pevkur promised to "stand side by side" with Ukraine to the end and wished the Armed Forces of Ukraine victory over the Russian army, saying that Estonia had already defeated Russia 105 years ago, having "achieved independence."
More than a year of Russia's large-scale invasion of Ukraine has shown (...) that the lesser can defeat the greater. Estonia did it 105 years ago when it won the war of independence against Russia. I want to assure you that Estonia will help Ukraine win this war
