Estonian Embassy Chief in Cleveland – NATO and security
Toomas Tubalkain introduced The Honorable Mrs. Marki Tehhonova-Kreek, Deputy Chief of Mission of the Estonian Embassy, Washington DC as keynote speaker at the 50th anniversary celebration of the Estonian Cultural Garden in Cleveland Ohio. It was also the annual celebration of Victory Day (Võidupüha) and St. John’s Day (Jaanipäev). The first part of her speech was about Estonia’s investment in international relations and security policy. She said not to become passive and assume everything we have achieved in the past 25 years is irreversible.
History is not final. She spoke about NATO and reacting to the “new normal” after the escalation of Russian aggression in Ukraine.
