Riigikogu

At the meeting with Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland Radosław Sikorski, President of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) Lauri Hussar underlined the importance of unity and cooperation among the allies in order to ensure the necessary support for Ukraine in the fight against Russia, which continues its war of aggression.

Hussar pointed out that Estonia and Poland were like-minded countries that had excellent relations and worked very closely together, especially on security issues. “We have a common understanding of both Russia’s aggression and the need to help Ukraine, and we will continue to do all we can to support Ukraine,” he said.

At the meeting, Ukraine’s needs, and possible further steps to help Ukraine were discussed in more detail. Hussar spoke about a Bill that had passed its second reading in the Riigikogu yesterday. That Bill would allow the use of Russia’s assets that are frozen under international sanctions to compensate Ukraine for war damages. He also acknowledged the agreement reached by the EU diplomats to use the income from Russia’s frozen assets to aid Ukraine.

Hussar said that Ukraine needed long-term military, economic and political support, including assistance in reconstruction of the country. In particular, he emphasised the importance of diplomatic efforts, including parliamentary diplomacy, to keep the Allies and partners united.

Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Riigikogu Marko Mihkelson and Chairman of the Estonia-Poland Parliamentary Friendship Group Ants Frosch also participated in the meeting of Hussar and Sikorski.

Besides the meeting in the Riigikogu, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland met with Prime Minister Kaja Kallas and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Estonia Margus Tsahkna in Tallinn.
