Pro Ukraine forces: No Estonian soldiers fight for us

Pro Ukrainian forces fighting in the east of the country have denied reports Estonian citizens are fighting for them, Delfi reports.

The claims come after Italian newspaper Il Gornale reported Baltic mercernaries were fighting for pro Kiev Azov battalionUkraine. Baltic officials denied the reports whilst Russia called for an investigation in to the matter. 

Azov battalion spokeswoman Anna Sennik refuted the allegations that Estonians could be serving in the Ukrainian troops because it would be contrary to the law of Ukraine.

Sennik said exceptions are made for non-military positions - for example, volunteers can help the battalion as logistics, instructors or consultants. However, there are no Estonia citizens in any of these positions either.

The Baltic Times ealrier reported that a group of volunteers from Latvia headed to the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic in eastern Ukraine to join independence supporters, the leader of Latvia’s For Native Language party told RIA Novosti on Tuesday.

“A group of volunteers has departed for the Donetsk People’s Republic. It’s small,” Vladimir Linderman said.
