The great Russian neighbor who dominated the country for two centuries and which during the Soviet Union occupied it for fifty years, remains very much in the minds of Estonians, especially since almost 30% of the population is Russian-speaking. But since then, Estonia has joined NATO and the European Union, and Tallinn has become the capital of a leading digital start-up nation in Europe.

Estonian President on why latvians should not compare themselves with Estonians, Tvnet Latvija https://president.ee/en/meedia/interviews/14605-estonian-president-on-why-latvians-should-not-compare-themselves-with-estonians-tvnet-latvija https://president.ee/en/meedia/interviews/14605-estonian-president-on-why-latvians-should-not-compare-themselves-with-estonians-tvnet-latvija In Latvia, many people are watching Estonians with envy and would like some of the success stories of our neighbors to reach them. Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaite, in an interview with LTV Panorama, acknowledged that she had no answer to the question of why this is happening. "I always say that I like Latvian beaches, I like Latvians, your president is a good friend. It should also be said that Latvian beer is very good when I am here, drinking" Valmiermuiža ". People are very friendly. The economy is developing successfully. Therefore, you need to be happy about yourself, not to think that someone is better. Be proud of yourself! " encourages Kaljulaid.

Tiny Estonia touts itself as the first all-digital nation, LA Times https://president.ee/en/meedia/interviews/14607-tiny-estonia-touts-itself-as-the-first-all-digital-nation-la-times https://president.ee/en/meedia/interviews/14607-tiny-estonia-touts-itself-as-the-first-all-digital-nation-la-times Set free by the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, tiny Estonia has developed Eastern Europe's most robust economy, a functional welfare state and — remarkably — perhaps the most digitally advanced government in the world.

Since the turn of the 21st century, Estonia has offered each citizen a government-issued"digital identity" — including a chip-embedded national ID card that can be used for social securi- ty, health insurance, voter registration, banking and much more. It also now offers "e-residency" for people around the world who want to be part of its digital revolution, allowing them to register a business in Estonia, which is part of the European Union.

The northernmost of the three Baltic nations, Estonia has one big problem: Its eastern neighbor. Russia, which long dominated Estonia and now deeply resents its membership in NATO, represents an existential threat.

Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid was in Los Angeles last week, where she discussed her country's digital initiative and other matters in a speech to the Los Angeles World Affairs Council at the downtown California Club. She later sat down with The Times for a Q&A, which has been edited for length and clarity. By Mitchell Landsberg

If we act, Russia might not react, NewEasternEurope https://president.ee/en/meedia/interviews/14375--if-we-act-russia-might-not-react-neweasterneurope https://president.ee/en/meedia/interviews/14375--if-we-act-russia-might-not-react-neweasterneurope SZABOLCS VÖRÖS: Could you pack all your belongings in less than 60 hours?

KERSTI KALJULAID: This is too weird of a question to answer...

But I am sure you have read RAND Corporation's now quite infamous finding from 2017 when they suggested that if Russia decided to attack the Baltic states, their capitals could be invaded in less than 60 hours.

But why should I have to pack my things? I trust in our armed forces and our defence capabilities and we stick to NATO's Article 3 which prescribes that defending our country is our own duty. We can defend our country by spending two per cent of our GDP on defence and moreover, as a host nation, we also cover the cost of those allied forces who were deployed here in the framework of NATO's Enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) mission as of 2016. Which means that no one has to pack any belongings. NATO's primary goal is deterrence; defence, if needed, comes only after that. This deterrence has always been sufficient and if any risk analyses suggest, than it will be broadened, and it decreases when the situation becomes more stable. This is how it works, in 360 degrees.

"Many Estonians live in other European countries," the Estonian president explains in an exclusive interview to "K". "We joined the EU to enjoy the four freedoms.

Then I begin to notice that for some reasons most of the architectures, at least what we see, is of the 5th century and I start wondering why. And then I see another sign saying that the hill was destroyed by the Persians 100 years before, and then I begin to imagine all this and to rebuild them (in my mind). At that time people were recycling, we can see that on the walls, in the buildings. I find this very interesting, how the culture of the other one comes as a kaleidoscope," told Mrs Kaljulaid with sincere interest, while stressing the reason she likes walking in the places she visits.

"You can see the real life, the real people, in a better way. I do it as often as I can, walk, run in the suburbs and elsewhere just to see how people live there. It's very interesting".

Six months after Emmanuel Macron's stay in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, Kersti Kaljulaid pays him a visit. The visit of the Estonian President began this afternoon with a lunch with the French head of state whose social-liberal and pro-European positions she shares. "He is a politician who has only the interests of its citizens in mind, assured us the president in an exclusive interview, one hour before his meeting with Emmanuel Macron. There are politicians happy in the morning to wake up and say, I am Prime Minister or President. But he does not. Like Edouard Philippe, he is a man of great integrity who really thinks about the wellbeing of the citizens of France but also of the European Union."

At 48 years old, Kersti Kaljulaid is Estonia's youngest president ever, and its first female president. A marathon runner with degrees in genetics and an MBA, she spent a career behind the scenes—mostly as a European government auditor—before being elected by Estonia's legislature in 2016. Two years later, she's continuing Estonia's push for global digital security while deflecting military and cyber threats from Russia, which occupied Estonia for 50 years until its liberation in 1991.

Known for its digital government, tax, and medical systems, Estonia is planning for the future. The country's "e-resident" program—which allows global citizens to obtain a government-issued ID card and set up remotely-operated businesses in Estonia—has attracted 35,000 people since 2014. Now the government is discussing a proposal to grant some rights to artificially intelligent systems. The law could make it easier to regulate decision-making by autonomous systems, robots, or driverless cars.

Yet her memories go back far enough to persuade her that, no matter how serious the challenges confronting her nation and other western democracies, they are in some respects less formidable than those that faced Estonia in the early 1990s.

At that time, she recalls in an interview with the Financial Times, Estonian membership of Nato and the EU — the twin pillars of western security and prosperity — was far from assured. Russian troops were still stationed on Estonian soil and were not to leave until 1994.

Das kleine Estland hat hart um seine Rolle als digitaler Vorreiter gekämpft. Präsidentin Kersti Kaljulaid erklärt, warum ihre Heimat so verwundbar wie ehrgeizig ist.

Für die journalistische Schadenfreude finnischer Abendzeitungen war es ein gefundenes Fressen: Angela Merkel, erschöpft und übermüdet, schlief während des Vortrags der estnischen Präsidentin Kersti Kaljulaid einfach ein. Vor allen Kameras, beim EU-Gipfeltreffen in Tallinn! In Deutschland, England oder Frankreich taugte Merkels Nickerchen nicht für Schlagzeilen. Denn obwohl Estland aktuell die Ratspräsidentschaft der Europäischen Union innehat, ist Estlands Aufmerksamkeitsbilanz im Westen, anders als in Finnland, kein Anlass zu Neid oder Spott.

When Kersti Kaljulaid was thrust into the Estonian presidency last year as a consensus candidate to resolve a political stalemate, it came as a surprise to many. She was not just an outsider – she was virtually unknown to most of the public. A trained biologist and former head of a power plant, she had spent the previous 12 years in the relatively anonymous confines of the European Court of Auditors in Luxembourg.

In the year since taking office, the 47-year-old has quickly found her footing. When monocle visits the bright-pink presidential office building in Tallinn, she eschews the measured tone of an EU accountant and is frank about Russia's meddling in elections and the importance of people protecting themselves online, or what she calls "cyber hygiene". She's also a passionate advocate of Estonia's e-governance push, urging European governments to follow her country's lead by moving basic services online and breaking down barriers with regards to sharing data across borders.

As Estonia took over the Presidency of the Council of the European Union on July 1st, the President of the Republic says in an interview with Life in Estonia that despite the fact that Estonia is a relatively well-off country, everyone needs to work harder to promote its urban environment, general greenness, and lack of hierarchies.

When you became President in October 2016, you said you were eager to hear 'what people have to say', and indeed, you have been going to places and meeting and speaking to a good proportion of the people. What has been the most surprising thing to hear/see?

I always feel great gratitude if I manage to touch upon a nerve that really matters to the people who might feel that not enough attention has been paid to their issues, which tend to be not so beautiful. Social co-hesion issues, questions that relate to handicapped people or to people who have somehow faced violence in society etc.

We are a relatively well-off country and we have to help those who have had a bad draw in this life, be it through their personal history in the family or a handicap. We seriously need to think how we could help those people better and I'm trying to focus minds on this.

I've also noticed that people working in the Estonian public sector ask me to come and talk to them about general public sector management issues. And this is something that I really like to do. Seems a bit like management consultancy, and indeed, it is.

As the President of Estonia, I represent the only truly digital society which actually has a state. And this position has made me question whether the state as we know it today is fit for the 21st century.

Traditionally nations have harnessed taxpayers to their territory by making almost everything people need from society dependent on working in one country, every day of the week, all months of the year and for at least three decades to receive these social guarantees. In creating free movement of people, the web has only got more complex, but never disappeared. The same old story of where you live, where you work and where you are entitled to get the social benefits.

The world around all these political debates is radically changing, industrial jobs are disappearing. They will continue to disappear, because of the productivity gains that come from choosing to invest in machinery and automation over people. Thus, social models that were created to fit industrial and early service economies will no longer be viable. It is only in Alice in Wonderland that the cat can leave while the grin lingers. In the real world when the cat is gone, the grin vanishes with it. Put simply, as the industrial workforce shrinks – just as we once saw happen in agriculture – the social model founded on it will go, too.

My son, an IT specialist, works for several companies at a same time. In some of them he is an owner, in others an employee. When he travels to others states for months at a time for work, he normally rents out his home assets – a flat, a car, sometimes even his dog (a well-trained Labrador who can keep lonely older people company).

Another man I know, a talented craftsman making world class bows and arrows, lives in rural Estonia. He came from South Africa. He did not lose any of his clients, even if he now makes his products at least 100 kilometres from his nearest customer.

Estonian President - Kersti Kaljulaid,who will take up the European Council Presidency spoke exclusively to euronews on the most pressing issues Europe faces.

For this edition of The Global Conservation, euronews was in Tallinn, Estonia: the Baltic nation that will spend the next six months in the EU hotseat.

This comes at a time when the 28-member club is facing a number of huge challenges: an ongoing migration crisis, Brexit and a resurgent Russia.

Euronews met with the Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid, who took up her post as head of state in October last year.

Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid. Welcome to The Global Conversation.

Thank you.

I just want to begin by asking you, the Italian government have threatened to close off their ports to humanitarian ships, which are not from Italy. What's your reaction to that? With migration being really at the top of the agenda as you look set to take over the EU presidency.

We need to break this situation where some countries are saying that they will not accept any part. They will take no responsibility at all. And then there are other countries who have this burden. We need to break this situation. We need to bridge the two differently thinking sides.

And there are different mechanisms. After all, because (the) EU by its nature is also quite a strong redistributor. It redistributes resources between the countries so that they can manage better the difficult situations which they are in. I think we need to look at all possible options. We also need to understand this – that people coming to Europe who have the right to seek asylum, they have certain preferences to where they go. And we have to discuss this through as well.

People, because they can freely move, move, of course, around in Europe. They tend to go where probably their income level in the future might be higher. And it's human. It's a very understandable situation. Because if you have lost everything. If you have lost your home already, you will try to get the best conditions for you and your family. Middle-income countries face difficulties here. We need to discuss those issues as well.

And you said about 'possible options' to bring these countries onside, who are not living up to their commitments as it were. What kind of options could you be talking about?

I am thinking of the possibility to support financially more those countries who are ready to accept people coming from other countries. On the other hand, you cannot create a moral difficulty for those governments, who will then have (to face) questions.

'They are asylum seekers. They are settling here. You are supporting them better than the people who are your own poor.'

We need to have all these points on the table and discuss them through. But it is not a situation that will be solved by itself. Good faith is needed.

President Trump, he's been – let's say lukewarm – with regards to his commitments towards NATO. How confident are you that he's fully behind the alliance?

He takes to the Twitter and his words might not be exact or spot-on as we expect maybe, or hope them to be.

But if you look outside of the Twitter world, and if you look at the whole administration's policy, it's rock solid. I have absolutely no doubt that it has been for all these six months. The messages that me and my colleagues around this region have received are exactly the same. There is no wavering. There hasn't been any wavering. And, of course, we feel secure because – you know – being prepared because you have an unpredictable neighbour doesn't mean being afraid. We don't deal every day with thinking: "What if?".

We do trust NATO. We do trust our allies. And we have an alliance based on our democratic values. Based on the international security architecture. We all respect our signatures on international contracts and agreements. Indeed, there is a country – our neighbour – who unfortunately at this moment does not respect its own signatures on these international agreements.

Do you think Mr. Putin uses gas and energy as a means of dividing the EU?

He definitely tries to use every crack to put a wedge in and show that Europe is not united.

The British Prime Minister Theresa May has made an offer on citizens rights. I believe there's roughly 10,000 Estonians living in the United Kingdom. Do you think the offer that she has made is sufficient?

We do hope and we are quite sure that we can trust the UK to protect their rights.

And how can that be done?

The United Kingdom is a democratic country, a free country, which shares our values, which will remain in Europe, which will remain our partner and ally, even after the Brexit happens. We will not allow any of those discussions to break down those links and this is not anybody's objective in Europe, I can assure you.

You said something very interesting there...."when Brexit happens." There are still some people in Brussels who think that Brexit is reversible and might not happen.

I would very much hope that it could be the case. But I don't see how this could happen. Of course, I am not happy to see the UK leave the European Union. I am more sad maybe for the British people because, as I said already, I don't think that even economically this is a decision that will pay off.

Estonian President Kaljulaid: 'I don’t believe that Russia would attack a NATO country', DW https://president.ee/en/meedia/interviews/13577-estonian-president-kaljulaid-i-dont-believe-that-russia-would-attack-a-nato-country-dw https://president.ee/en/meedia/interviews/13577-estonian-president-kaljulaid-i-dont-believe-that-russia-would-attack-a-nato-country-dw Deutsche Welle

In an interview with DW's Zhanna Nemtsova, Estonia's President Kersti Kaljulaid explains whether Russia is a threat and why she supports sanctions - even if they do not work.

DW: Madame President, in your opinion, what external challenges does Estonia face?

Kersti Kaljulaid: There are no challenges particularly related to our country. But the security situation surrounding the European Union (EU) is unpredictable and volatile. There is Russia, and Russia has shown with the occupation of the Crimean peninsula that it is ready to use force. Also, we know now that Russia does not respect its international obligations and its own signatures. The Minsk agreement continues to go unfulfilled, so the sanctions against Russia need to remain in place.

All this shows that the security environment is difficult. It's the same if you look to the south at the conflict in Syria. And Libya - it's not a state anymore, it's a failed state. The world is not stable. You may say it has never been stable, there have always been challenges, and this is kind of normal. But Europe experienced a more peaceful era, which made people hope it could be the new normal. I regret it isn't, but on the other hand, I am proud of the resolve and the unity the EU has shown. Once again, I am thinking particularly about the Minsk agreement and the sanctions regime, but also of NATO, which has generated quick decisions to make sure that its deterrence responses are proportional to risk profile and risk analysis.

In an interview with the Washington Post, you said that Russia is a threat to the international security architecture but not a threat to any NATO Country. Can you tell me if Russia is a physical threat to Estonia or not?

I don't believe Russia would attack a NATO country or NATO as such, no matter which country we are talking about. You can not divide security; NATO security space is indivisible.

In June a NATO battalion will be stationed in Estonia...

You are mistaken, it's already here. A battalion was deployed on April 20.

Why do you need this battalion if Russia is not a threat and you don't believe Russia will invade Estonia one day?

It's actually the other way around. NATO is safe if it provides deterrence against potential adversaries. NATO has a one-hundred-percent track record of providing adequate deterrence, which is why I think there will be no attacks on NATO from anywhere. But that, in and of itself, explains why a required level of deterrence protecting all NATO territory is needed.

You used the word adversary. Is Russia an adversary country?

I am talking more about potential threats in a 360-degree sense. This could include terrorist threats, among other things. Adversary is a general word.

You raised the question of sanctions targeting Russia. I know you strongly support their remaining in place. But the Russian economy has largely adapted to the sanctions regime. Do you think sanctions that are of symbolic significance can make Russia fulfill the Minsk II agreement?

The Minsk agreement has not been fulfilled; hence the sanctions regime remains in place. The fact is that partners came together and decided they would utilize the sanctions regime. They recognized why they were doing it, and they also recognized what needs to be done in order for the sanctions to be removed. This has not been achieved, so the sanctions remain in place.

There would probably be other tools to make Russia fulfill this agreement, since the sanctions do not appear to be having an effect.

Periodically, partners come together and discuss such issues. There have been debates around strengthening the sanctions. But so far, the common position has been to keep to our stance, and I strongly support this position.

Kersti Kaljulaid, born in 1969 in Tartu, Estonia, was elected Estonian president in October 2016. Before that, she was a member of the European Court of Auditors for 12 years and worked as an economic advisor to the Estonian prime minister.
