The Russian diplomat ended a quiet life in Estonia
The Russian ambassador to Estonia is due to leave the country after lowering the level of diplomatic relations between the countries, reports the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Estonia Urmas Reinsalu.
“Estonia takes note of Russia's decision to reduce the diplomatic presence to the level of charge d'affaires. Estonia is guided by the principle of parity in relations with Russia, and we will abide by it. This means that the Russian ambassador to Tallinn will leave on February 7 at the same time as the Estonian ambassador to Russia”, – said in a statement.
The Minister emphasized that Russia's steps will not prevent Estonia from supporting Ukraine.
“We will continue to support Ukraine as Russia plans large-scale attacks, and we urge other countries- like-minded people to increase assistance to Ukraine,” said Reinsalu.
