  • Estonia safe haven for Ukrainians
    Mustamae This rise in asylum applications comes despite the fragile ceasefire brokered between the Ukrainian government and the pro Russian separatist movement on Sept 5 Although shots continue to be fired in the east of the country largely in the disputed Donestsk and Luhansk regions where most of the heaviest fighting has taken place so far there has been a clear decrease in the level of intensity of the fighting in recent weeks This reduction in hostility has coincided with the introduction of a number of measures put in place to limit the covert yet direct involvement of Russian forces and equipment in aid of the separatists who continue their fight for autonomy and governance in the region Meanwhile government forces attempt to maintain control over the country and enforce the sovereignty of its borders Preventative measures by the EU include economic sanctions on Russian individuals and companies along with the announcement earlier last month of a semi permanent NATO ground force that will be based in the Baltic States NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen stated on Aug 27 that there will be the pre positioning of supplies of equipment preparation of infrastructure bases headquarters The bottom line is you will in the future see a more visible NATO presence in the east However these preventative measures are failing to stem the flow of refugees from Ukraine According to official figures from the United Nations refugee agency UNHCR more than 1 million Ukrainians have been displaced as a result of the fighting Vincent Cochetel director of the Agency s European bureau said It s safe to say you now have over a million people displaced as a result of the crisis reported The New York Times In a statement regarding the humanitarian crisis United Nations high commissioner for refugees Antonio Guterres added If the crisis is not quickly stopped it will have not only devastating humanitarian consequences but it also has the potential to destabilize the whole region He went on to say After the lessons of the Balkans it is hard to believe a conflict of these proportions could unfold in the European continent There are obvious fears that the number of refugees will continue to rise as the situation in Ukraine remains unstable However Estonia is not traditionally a common choice of location for those seeking a safe haven from conflict In fact it boasts the lowest number of asylum applications out of all 28 member states But since 2010 the number of asylum applicants in Estonia has been on the increase and equaled 97 people last year In spite of this increase the number of people who were actually granted asylum in the northern most Baltic State has been in steady decline numbering just 7 successful applications last year This is a situation that key European allies and political figures outside the country are keen to reverse however with a UNHCR representative stating We are not expecting Estonia to accept hundreds of refugees but Estonia could
