Kersti Kaljulaid, the President of Estonia is sure that the events in Georgia in 2008 and in the Ukrainian Donbas should be called by the proper name. 'War is war and occupation is occupation', she said at the conference dedicated to former Estonian president Lennart Meri as her press service reported.

According to Kaljulaid, the international society continues to use the allegoric definitions 'administrative border' or 'frozen conflict' instead of the direct pointing at the problem.
