“We spoke to Finland that we are really no longer able to help refugees from Ukraine in this way, and the Finns said that they could take in more refugees and give money to Ukraine,” she explained.
As the head of government noted, Estonia sends assistance to Ukraine to restore the energy infrastructure and create opportunities for life so that citizens do not have to leave the country. Meanwhile, Kallas pointed out that there were no more housing and jobs for refugees in Estonia.
Earlier, on November 29, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that European countries should be ready for a new wave of Ukrainian refugees. He thanked and noted the role of Romania in the issue of accepting refugees. According to him, the country received
more than 1.5 million Ukrainians.
On November 24, political scientist Dmitry Zhuravlev doubted that European countries would want to accept a new wave of refugees from Ukraine. In his opinion, the likelihood of canceling most of the benefits previously available is high. Zhuravlev suggested that only minimal funds to support migrants would be kept.
Prior to that, on October 28, it became known that the Estonian Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD) proposed to strengthen control over refugees from Ukraine arriving in the country, obliging them to report their location and contact information to the state.
