The Chairman of the European Union Affairs Committee Raivo Tamm and Member of the Riigikogu Mihhail Lotman visited Kyiv and liberated areas on Tuesday and Wednesday as part of the United for Ukraine global network of parliament members.

For me, this offered the opportunity to share with my Ukrainian colleagues Estonia’s experiences of the EU accession process,” Tamm said.
