The Estonian authorities are seriously concerned about the buildup of Russian troops along the border with Ukraine. Estonian Foreign Minister Eva-Maria Liimets stated this in an interview with DW.

"It is important for us that there is no further escalation of the military conflict that we have been witnessing in Ukraine for eight years," Limets said.

The Foreign Minister also stressed that NATO, of which Estonia is a member, provides its country with security guarantees, which Ukraine lacks.

And fears that Russian President Vladimir Putin may be planning an invasion of Ukraine are growing, Limets said.

As it was reported by Bloomberg on November 11, the USA has warned its European partners about a possible Russian military operation against Ukraine. According to the agency, Washington's assessments are based on information that the American side has not yet shared with the EU. Officials familiar with the White House say this information is backed up by publicly available evidence.

The satellite photos taken by Western experts on November 2 confirmed reports that Russia is again concentrating troops and military hardware on the border with Ukraine. The images were taken by Colorado-based US space technology company Maxar Technologies, which handed them over to Politico.
