Russian-Estonian border treaty good for Europe


Russian President Vladimir Putin sent the Estonian-Russian border treaty to parliament for ratification at the end of March

The editor-in-chief of the monthly magazine Diplomaatia comments on the web portal of Estonian broadcaster ERR that the EU stands to gain from this agreement:

“The European Union sees the border treaty as a bilateral issue between Estonia and Russia. Russia no doubt also sees it this way and therefore handles it separately from the issue of the EU sanctions. This enables Moscow to depict the border treaty as an example of the disunity within the EU. However the border treaty has been on the agenda for a long time, and it would be good for the EU to have a fixed external border.”
