Russia lists Estonian PM Kaja Kallas as ‘wanted’

Moscow, Feb 13 (EFE).- Russia on Tuesday declared Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas a “wanted” person, according to the country’s interior ministry database.

The Ministry did not specify either the reason or the article justifying the issuance of the warrant against a senior official in active service of a foreign country.

Kallas, 46, has been one of the strongest voices within the European Union (EU) and NATO in favor of arms supplies to Ukraine and the tightening of sanctions against Russia.

In January 2021, she became the first woman to serve as the head of the government of the Baltic country, and was reelected in the legislative elections in March last year.

Along with Kallas, Estonian Secretary of State Taimar Peterkop was also declared wanted.

Russian President Vladimir Putin recently said his country had no plans to invade the three Baltic republics or Poland, which are members of NATO. EFE
