Estonian Prime Minister presented Zelenskyy with a sweatshirt with a symbolic inscription for Ukrainians: what kaitsetahe means
Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas presented Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy with a sweatshirt with a symbolic inscription that characterizes Ukrainians and Estonians. Zelensky made a speech in the country's parliament wearing the new shirt.
The sweatshirt with the inscription "kaitsetahe" was handed to the Ukrainian leader just before he addressed the parliamentarians. Volodymyr Zelenskyy explained the meaning of the foreign word in his powerful speech.
"When I was coming to your parliament today, this sweatshirt was given to me by Mrs. Prime Minister. She said that the meaning of this word is kaitsetahe - that this meaning has united many Estonians. This is something that is engraved in the hearts of many Ukrainians - the will to defend - kaitsetahe," Zelenskyy explained in his speech to the Estonians.
Kaya Kallas handed the leader of the independent country a military-style sweatshirt, knowing that he had hardly worn any other clothes since the start of the full-scale war.
The white word "kaitsetahe" was emblazoned on his chest. You can often see Volodymyr Zelenskyy in such things. Usually, these are sweatshirts with a coat of arms, a laconic inscription, or the flag of Ukraine.
To recap, in Estonia, the head of state said that Ukraine must win the battle against Russia because it is about the survival of the Ukrainian people.
