The head of the Ukrainian government also stressed the need to strengthen cooperation in the energy sector.

This will mark an important step towards Ukraine’s energy independence," the prime minister noted.

In addition, Denys Shmyhal said the latest signing of the Common Aviation Area deal with the EU should offer an incentive for the development of transit and tourism potential between Ukraine and Estonia.

The prime minister of Ukraine thanked the Government of Estonia for COVID-19 vaccine supplies, including to the Ukrainian military.
