Estonian PM: ‘If aggression pays off, aggressors will take note’ | Talk to Al Jazeera
Prime Minister Kaja Kallas discusses what Europe has learned since last year’s invasion of Ukraine.

To mark the occasion, the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, and the secretary general of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, travelled to the Estonian capital. They also marked Estonia’s 105th anniversary of its independence from imperial Russia.
