TALLINN - According to Estonian Justice Minister Urmas Reinsalu, the state should not buy air time from the pro-Kremlin Pervyi Baltiisky Kanal (PBK).

"The Estonian state, Estonia's public institutions should send a signal by not buying commercial time there anymore. The sums for which public institutions have bought air time are not large, but it is a matter of principles," Reinsalu said at the government press conference on Thursday.

According to Reinsalu, the reality is that the Western information space is in information war with Russia.

He said that Estonia as a state has to make choices and should not allow to manipulate with it. "The fact that many of our fellow citizens are in the information sphere of a state with a hostile agenda toward us is a very serious problem," Reinsalu added.
