Estonia 'concerned' about a possible hybrid attack from Russia: We are working with allies on the border

Estonia is worried about a possible hybrid attack from Russia, we are working with allies on the border

The Foreign Minister of Estonia has expressed "concern" about a possible hybrid attack from Russia.

Margus Tsahkna, the Foreign Minister, in an interview with foreign media said that "There are hybrid threats. But we never know what kind of hybrid situation might happen. We have witnessed them before."

He said that Russia could "test the borders" not only of Estonia, but also of NATO and the EU, with Tallinn within both blocs. "We are watching carefully. We are working very closely with our allies on the border," he added.

Estonia was part of the former USSR and shares a border of about 300 km with Russia. The war in Ukraine has heightened domestic security concerns, with Tallinn fearing a revisionist Russia.

Hybrid threats mix military and non-military tactics, covert and overt means. They include disinformation, cyber attacks, economic pressure, the deployment of irregular armed groups and the use of regular forces.
