EU condemns Russian “provocation” on Estonian border

EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell has accused Russia of “provocative actions” on the border with Estonia. The removal of border buoys in the Narva River between the two countries is “unacceptable,” criticized Borrell in Brussels. “This border incident is part of a broader pattern of provocative behavior and hybrid actions by Russia, including at its sea and land borders in the Baltic Sea region,” Borrell said. French Foreign Minister Stéphane Séjourném made similar statements, and Foreign Minister Baerbock warned Moscow against “igniting” the EU’s borders.

Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas said it appeared to be part of a “broader pattern” by Moscow to “spread fear and terror” through border actions. Since the beginning of the Russian war of aggression on Ukraine in February 2022, tensions with Moscow in this area have increased.
