President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid have signed a joint statement on further cooperation. This was reported by the press service of the Office of the President of Ukraine.

The presidents reaffirmed "a firm commitment to international law and the basic principles of international relations" in this statement.

The heads of state once again urged the Russian Federation to abolish the illegal annexation of Crimea and to stop the aggression in Donbas.

"Estonia continues to support the territorial integrity of Ukraine. I (Kersti Kaljulaid, ed.) stood alone on the front line in Eastern Ukraine. I stood next to the barrier, one side of which is Ukraine, the other side is also Ukraine, but such different environments. It is important to move towards a political solution to this conflict," Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid stated.

Zelensky stressed the importance of humanitarian, financial and technical assistance, as well as the implementation of medical rehabilitation of Ukrainian soldiers, who were injured in Donbas.

"I also want to thank once again for the decision of Estonia not to recognize the Russian passports that are illegally issued to citizens of Ukraine on the temporarily occupied Donbas," President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said during a briefing.

As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has departed to Estonia and Lithuania for a working visit. He stated this on his Facebook page.

He said that the topic of "countering common threats from the East and common opportunities in the West" will be discussed during the meetings.
