On Thursday, January 11, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky arrived on a visit to Estonia. The visit of the Ukrainian leader is dedicated to the topics of Russian aggression and long-term support for Ukraine, which is necessary for our country's victory in the war against Russia.
He was met at the Tallinn airport by Estonian Foreign Minister Margus Tsahkna. The official wrote on his page on the social networking site X that Estonia firmly stands by Ukraine in the fight against the Russian aggressor. The Estonian minister also expressed his belief that "we will win this war!"

On January 10, the President of Ukraine visited the Lithuanian capital Vilnius. There he met with President Gitanas Nausėda. The main topics of the visit were security, integration into the EU and NATO, cooperation in the field of electronic warfare and drones, and further coordination of European support.
