TALLINN – Prime Minister Kaja Kallas is featured in the new Netflix docuseries "Turning Point: The Bomb and the Cold War", where she talks about Estonia's history.

The Netflix crew interviewed the prime minister for the series in the Hall of the Elders of State of Stenbock House in Tallinn.

"In the series of the renowned US film director Brian Knappenberger, I explain, based on the historical experience of Estonia and our people, what the real face of Russia looks like and why we cannot let Russia's aggression pay off in Ukraine -- because otherwise we will wake up in a much more dangerous world," Kallas said.

The prime minister also took the crew to the memorial to the victims of communism at Maarjamae, where she spoke about the victims of deportation and lives not lived.

"We also visited allies at the Amari Air Base and the crew also followed a reception of thanks held at Stenbock House for Estonian troops who had participated in foreign missions," Kallas added.

According to her, this was a very large international production, because the film crew reportedly worked for two years and interviewed over 100 people in Europe, the United States and Japan. The crew also went to Ukraine and interviewed President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
