On NATO’s Frontline: The View from Estonia
As a small frontline NATO and EU member, Estonia is playing an oversized role and has provided more aid per capita to Ukraine than any other country, devoting 1.3% of its entire GDP to help resist aggression.
On October 19, Margus Tsahkna, Estonia’s current Minister of Foreign Affairs and former Minister of Defence and Minister of Social Welfare, visited the Munk School to discuss the nation’s response to Russia’s war against Ukraine and how the country has been working to bolster European security and maintain Transatlantic unity.
Chair of Estonian Studies, Andres Kasekamp, chaired the event and provided introductory remarks. As a former exchange student from the University of Tartu, Margus Tsahkna studied International Law in 1999-2000 at the University of Toronto.
