NATO’S SMALLEST COUNTRY, ESTONIA, GALVANIZES ALLIES TO MAINTAIN SUPPORT FOR UKRAINE
Hanno Pevkur, the Minister of Defence of the NATO’s smallest country, Estonia, has galvanized allies to continue supporting Ukraine as the war-weary country fights back a full-scale Russian invasion.
Defence minister of the Russia’s neighbouring country did this during a 24-nation meeting in Copenhagen.
He said, “Estonia’s assistance to Ukraine has been significant, but we must not be tired. I, therefore, appreciate the initiative of the allies to bring together the various contributors and find ways in which we can further support Ukraine by increasing the training provided to it and the production of European arms industries.”
AFRICUNIA TV gathered that Estonia has given Ukraine nearly $250 million in military assistance since Russia invaded in late February.
The Baltic country has delivered Javelin anti-tank missile systems, howitzers, anti-tank mines, anti-tank grenade launchers, mortars and other equipment.
Pevkur also said that Estonia joined Germany in donating a field hospital and medical supplies worth nearly $10.2 million to Ukraine.
