On 24 February 2022, Russia launched a full-scale war of aggression in Ukraine, which changed the world. After this, peace, democracy, and rules-based world order have been under a bigger threat than ever before. The war of aggression is still raging in Ukraine, but the free world cannot afford war fatigue.

We need to continue supporting Ukraine ever more decisively. For this, we need stronger unity both within Estonia and among our allies.

The Riigikogu has issued six statements in support of Ukraine. It is important to keep issuing statements because this urges the international community to relentlessly exert pressure against Russia and benefits continued allied unity. We cannot afford war fatigue at a time when democracy and freedom are under attack. The joint activities of the international community in supporting Ukraine play a pivotal role in securing Ukraine’s victory in this war.
