Tallinn: Prime Minister of Great Britain Theresa May said that as Russia continues to aggression, the threat to NATO members is growing, so it is necessary to respond to this. She stated this to the British NATO military, who are in Estonia.
"I am happy to be here today and I have the opportunity to pay tribute to all of you for the work you are doing in this important NATO mission to protect the security of the Eastern flank of the Alliance. The continuing aggression of Russia is a growing danger for our friends here in Estonia, as well as in Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. And our answer must be clear and unambiguous," said May.
She said that when such a nation as Russia consciously violates rules based on international order, it is necessary to unite with the allies to protect the liberal values of democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
"Therefore, I am proud that more than 800 British soldiers participate in multinational efforts together with French, Danish and Estonian partners. British participation is one of the largest in Eastern Europe recently," the British prime minister added.
Also during the Tallinn Digital Summit in Estonia, British Prime Minister Theresa May held a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, during which they discussed the withdrawal of Great Britain from the European Union.
