August 4 2008

"I believe that there is not much sense to put these goals, go to qualify any stripe for wounds, which then could decorate his uniform. It would be a relatively dull activity. Much more interesting to talk with interesting people," - said the ambassador.

"One should never forget that Russia is for us a very promising country in the sense that, if fulfilled prophecy President Toomas Hendrik Ilves, Estonia and become dull northern country, then we will be right next to an interesting state. It is unlikely that in my lifetime Russia will become boring "- he added.

Speaking on Russian-Estonian relations, he said: "The most urgent problem is the realization that nothing terribly urgent no. All things are possible and necessary to take calm. There is no reason to rush before the first cock songs." "When it's the right time and conditions, of course, necessary things should be done quickly," - he added.

"I never believed that Russian should be afraid. While we know everything that happened. I am by training a historian, but that does not mean that I should take it as if everything that happened in the history repeat itself, and even in the same form. Things are still change over time, "- said the ambassador, reports "Interfax" referring to the newspaper "Postimees".
