The Government of Estonia approved the draft order presented by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Urmas Reinsalu, on the termination of the treaty between Estonia and Russia on cooperation and mutual assistance in customs matters.
This was reported by the national broadcaster ERR.
Urmas Reinsalu noted that this is an important step to minimize Estonia’s relations with its eastern neighbor.
The customs cooperation agreement can be terminated by a written notice from one of the parties, but it will continue to be valid for six months after the notice. This contract was concluded in 1997.
As a reminder, Estonia will supply the Ukrainian army with a modern mobile hospital that can help save the lives of soldiers at the front.
It should also be noted that Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland are introducing a ban on the entry of Russians.
