During the full-scale war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, Estonia sheltered about 55 thousand Ukrainian refugees, and also provided them with humanitarian support and social services.

This was announced by the President of Estonia Alar Karis at a meeting of the UN General Assembly.
“Estonia received about 55,000 Ukrainian refugees, which is 4% of the population of our country. Social services, education services - all this is provided to people fleeing the war. Estonia has created thousands of places in schools for refugee children from Ukraine, new schools have been opened,” he stressed.
According to Karis, only 18 million Ukrainians need international humanitarian support. On September 21, Estonia provided 20 million euros in aid to Ukraine.
"We see an unprecedented level of support for Ukraine from Estonian private companies, civil society, ordinary citizens. We will continue to help restore Ukraine. This assistance must begin right now, and we encourage others to join us in this," the president said.
