The Parliament of the Republic of Estonia has adopted a resolution calling on UN member states to close the sky over Ukraine.

"The Parliament of the Republic of Estonia has adopted a resolution calling on UN member states to close Ukraine's sky to protect it from the Russian aggressor. This is the first decision taken by the parliament of the country which is EU and NATO member. It is difficult, responsible, and honorable to be the first," Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Ruslan Stefanchuk posted on Facebook.

He thanked President of the Estonian Parliament Jüri Ratas and all members for their courage and devotion to Ukraine.

Stefanchuk noted that the decision should be an example of determination for other parliaments around the world. "After all, parliamentarians are representatives of the people, and the peoples of the world demand decisive action to establish peace and close the sky over Ukraine," he added.

He expressed hope that the sky over Ukraine would once again be a source of light and warmth for Ukrainians, rather than the deaths and destruction inflicted by Russia.

On February 24, Russian president Putin declared war on Ukraine and launched a large-scale invasion. Russian troops shell and destroy infrastructure, conduct massive shelling of residential areas of Ukrainian cities and towns using artillery, MLRS, and ballistic missiles.

Martial law was imposed in Ukraine and general mobilization was announced. Ukraine repels Russian invaders.
