Toomas Hendrik Ilves, the President of Estonia, has declared his support for the provision of military assistance to Ukraine. Ilves commented on the conflict in Ukraine while attending a public event at the University of Tallinn on Tuesday alongside Frans Timmermans, the First Vice-President of the European Commission. “If we take into account the fact that Ukraine is defending itself with 20—30-year-old weapons, it's clear that Ukraine will be the one that loses the war,” Ilves said, according to reports in the local press.
