Estonia to extend its drone mission in Lithuania

Estonia will extend the mission of its armed forces’ drone team until the end of October, BNS reported on Saturday.

The drone team operates along the Lithuanian border with Belarus amid a spike in irregular migration.

“Estonia together with other states and allies of the European Union has consistently supported Lithuania in responding to the hybrid attack organised by Lukashenko’s regime. We will also stand with Lithuania in the future,” Prime Minister Kaja Kallas was quoted by the Estonian public broadcaster ERR News.

A 10-strong Estonian police unit, ESTPOL5, as well as the country’s border guards as as part of the EU’s Frontex mission, are currently in Lithuania.
