Estonia stands for keeping in place the sanctions against Russia until it completely fulfills the agreements reached in Minsk, Belarus on February 12, 2015 and its international commitments.

Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid said this at a joint press briefing with President Petro Poroshenko, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

Estonia respects the territorial integrity of Ukraine and consistently disclaims Russia’s annexation of Crimea, she said.

Kaljulaid also supports the reforms carried out in Ukraine and hopes for effectiveness of the fight against corruption.

She also stands by Ukraine in its aspiration to obtain visa-free travels to the European Union.

Ukraine will remain a priority for Estonia, assured, and Estonia will continue providing the necessary assistance to Ukraine.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Estonia in November had intention to allocate EUR 575,000 humanitarian aid to those affected by the combat action in Donbas.

Poroshenko is in Estonia on an official visit on Monday. He is to meet with Kaljulaid, Prime Minister Juri Ratas and Speaker of the Riigikogu (Parliament) Eiki Nestor.

Poroshenko is visiting Finland for meetings with officials on January 24.
