The opposition Estonian Conservative People's Party (EKRE) announced on Thursday that when the new government coalition puts the border treaty between Estonia and Russia before the parliament for ratification, EKRE will prevent its ratification by all legitimate means.


Mart Helme, deputy chairman of EKRE and member of the Riigikogu foreign affairs committee, said that EKRE intends to mobilize all forces in order for the Riigikogu not to endorse a treaty by which Estonia voluntarily cedes to Russia territories belonging to it under the Tartu Peace Treaty.


"There are no substantive reasons for separating 5.2 percent of the territory, territorial waters and airspace from the Estonian state and relinquishing it to a foreign country.

 

Approving the treaty in the hope that it will improve Estonian-Russian relations is wishful thinking and shows how poorly those who are shaping our foreign policy know Russia," Helme said.


Helme described the timing of the initiative of the government as baffling.


"In a situation where relations between the European Union and Russia are at a low and new sanctions on Russia are being discussed, our ministers are planning a gift to the eastern neighbor.

 

Estonia will not gain any political, economic or moral benefit from this," Helme said.
