President of Estonia Toomas Hendrik Ilves expressed concern that due to the current refugee crisis, in Europe forgot about the situation in Ukraine.  He said that a year ago for Estonia some of the main concerns were  events involving Crimea, Malaysian "Boeing" and armed conflict in Donbas. According to his words, as of this year the situation in Ukraine has changed slightly. "But the major part of  Europe has forgotten about Ukraine, because Europe confronts a new crisis,” Estonian President claimed at the opening of autumn parliamentary session, Interfax.

“Now, an unprecedented wave of war refugees in our countries overhanges us, Europe.  We see a new migration of peoples, similar to that last time seen one thousand and one and a half thousand years ago.  Over the years we have been warned about that and today, I am afraid,  it happened,”  the President said.

He expressed opinion that solution to the current problem with refugees could be strong, unite and active Europe. “In just the same way as strong and unite NATO is an answer to aggressive Russia,” Ilves said.
