Russia, meanwhile, has been accused of mimicking missile strikes on Estonia. According to an interview with the Finnish daily Iltalehti by the Chief of Staff of the Estonian Ministry of Defense, Kusti Sal, “Russia is currently conducting exercises to mimic missile strikes on Estonian territory.” In addition, Russian military helicopters repeatedly violate the airspace of the Baltic states, “a helicopter does not accidentally cross the border,” Salm emphasizes.
A situation that the Estonian Ministry of Defense takes very seriously. “The Russians think we do not deserve independence. This confirms their recent strategic interactions and actions,” Sal added. In early March, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Selensky recalled in an article that Putin had warned Putin that he would try to seize the Baltic if Russia could conquer Ukraine. “If Ukraine collapses, the next move will be for the Baltic states,” Selensky said.
