Foreign Minister of Estonia told how to confront Russia
MOSCOW, 30 Jul — RIA Novosti. Estonia intends to build relations with Russia on the basis of a position of strength, said the head of Ministry of foreign Affairs Sven Mikser in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald.
The mixer made a number of accusations against Moscow, in particular, claiming that Russia allegedly involved in a military operation in Ukraine.
“We have seen how Russia launched two military operations against their neighbors for ten years: in 2008 against Georgia, and most recently against Ukraine. If you think about it, it is a very frightening example. In Europe of the XXI century you see a country that uses the army to achieve their political objectives without much hesitation,” the official said.
The Estonian foreign Minister added that Russia “need to communicate from a position of strength”.
“When you’re talking to the leader (the President of Russia. — Approx. ed.), and, obviously, we need to talk with Russia, we must do this from a position of strength, unity and determination. Because any sign of hesitation rastorgaetsya by the Kremlin as weakness, which should be used”, — said the Minister.
