Both politicians' statements were distorted. President Grybauskaite emphasized in the interview that "the abandonment of the occupied territories, less aggression, lack of interest in manifesting power ... .., influence on elections in our countries ... will make possible cooperation with all our neighbours". The Foreign Minister stated in the cited interview that: "Both Estonia and the EU as a whole are interested in good relations with Russia. To improve relations, it is necessary to restore the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine. We can not be blind to the fact that Russia in the most serious manner violates international law in Ukraine. No democratic state is ready to recognize in the 21st century the change of borders by armed means.
