Given that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin has no self-imposed “red lines” when it come to war against Ukraine, Kyiv’s Western partners should not restrict their military assistance, Estonian President Alar Karis said on April 3.

"Ukraine is in a state of war; Russia is not imposing any restrictions on its aggression towards Ukraine; therefore, we should not impose restrictions on the assistance provided to Ukraine," Estonian public broadcaster ERR quotes Karis.

Karis added that Western restrictions "would only assist Russia in planning its strikes."

He also said that Ukrainian strikes on Russian targets deep behind the front lines are legitimate and aim to slow down Russia's war machine.

"This is a war in which, on one side, there's a colonial evil invading, and on the other, international law is defending the independence of sovereign states," the president added.
