Estonia may send humanitarian aid to the Ukraine and will continue supporting the country in the field of IT, foreign minister Urmas Paet has confirmed

Estonia helped provide treatment to those injured following the Euro Maidan protests earlier this year.

“Because of the recent events and the priorities of the new government, we are also prepared to help out with particular wishes from Ukraine; for example, Ukraine has stated that it would welcome consultations in the field of IT, and we are prepared to provide that,” Paet said.

The number of grants available to students from Ukraine to study in Estonian universities has also been increased.
Paet said that Ukraine has not requested direct financial aid from Estonia.

Resolving the security situation in the country is Ukraine's topmost priority, Paet added.
