In an exclusive interview with DW, Estonia's Defense Minister Hanno Pevkur spoke about Poland's request to send the Patriot system to Ukraine. He maintained a solution must be found together with all NATO members but didn't specify when this would happen. German Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht has so far rejected calls to send the Patriot system to Ukraine, which was previously offered to Poland. She argued that it needed to be cleared by NATO first. Pevkur agreed with his German counterpart and furthermore appealed for unity among NATO members, arguing that "Russia wants to divide us." Asked whether the recent missile crash in Poland was a wake up call, he maintained "We don't need a wake up. We are awake already. We we see what is going on in Ukraine. And this is exactly why I said also here today, also in bilateral meeting and have said that many times in different meetings that we don't have the luxury to say that we will stop helping Ukraine." He praised Germany's contribution of the Iris-T system to Ukraine - a system Germany doesn't "even have themselves". He went on to highlight the progress that was made in providing Ukraine with winter supplies. Together Germany and Estonia made two military field hospitals available to Ukraine. "So Estonia produces, Germany finances and then we send it to Ukraine."

Putin and asks for more s300 because yours is a joke and the whole world knows it

Okay, fair. Now talk about epstein.
Estonia is the worst of the Baltic Countries!
😂😂😂😃😃nato fools wont dare to supply patriot missiles to ukraine😂😂😂if they do ukraine will be flattened😁😂😂the fools know this😁😂😂😂
It's no secret. NATO needs air defense. At the current rate of mission creep, NATO will be fighting Russia directly soon and Estonia will be right in the front.
NATO, please listen to the Baltic states.
Could have told you this 8 months ago.
Patriots overrated...Russia isn't worried at all about the possible deployment of Patriots because it knows that it is not a capable system
Patriots will not deter Russia from where it wants to hit
Estonia Considers Power Cuts After Cutting Russian Supplies
Estonian authorities are considering the possibility of enforcing temporary power outages due to shortages, said the country's Prime Minister Kaja Kallas.
"We need to reduce electricity consumption and redirect to off-peak hours. If this is not done, we may be forced to carry out regional power outages for a couple of hours," she told the national broadcasting portal ERR.
According to Kallas, Estonia has a shortage of electricity in the entire region of the Nord Pool energy exchange. "One of the reasons is that 1 thousand megawatts [of electricity] are no longer coming from Russia,” she said.
Estonia 🇪🇪 has a nice choice of Prime Minister and former president btw🤣😂😅😄😁😉
Ukraine needs everything especially cash, the more cash the better.
Stop sending in weapons and the war will stop.
That's true but I hope the peace in Ucraine comes soon
Yes please, patriots will be very very helpful. Thank you!
Ukraine needs everything.
Ukraine need air defense since February, I’m not a politician and even I knew that, and yet NATO and the rest of the west still debating. Maybe the west wait to see the whole Ukraine infrastructures totally destroyed before they send…I just don’t know what they waiting for, war has been going on nearly a year already
We need to send special socks and foot treatments. The ground is mud and Ukrainian warriors need to avoid trench foot. It can be deadly.
“Trench foot killed an estimated 2,000 American and 75,000 British soldiers during WWI. Since the infamous outbreak of trench foot during WWI, there's now more awareness about the benefits of keeping your feet dry.” Wikipedia Feb 19, 2021
JFC, just send everything. They need everything, all models. Europe needs to send whatever they have NOW or plan to speak Russian in coming years.
