Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas said NATO countries must prepare for a long war in Ukraine, calling on allies to increase defense spending.
“Russia has prepared for a long confrontation and so must we,” Kallas tweeted on Wednesday.
The Estonian prime minister urged NATO countries to increase defense spending beyond the 2% threshold.
“Estonia has increased its defence budget significantly, it will reach 3% of GDP by 2024,” she said. “2% of GDP on defence spending must be the floor, not the ceiling.”
