New speaker revealed

Kristi Raik, Director of the Estonian Foreign Policy Institute at International Centre for Defence and Security, is announced as a speaker at Helsinki Security Forum.

"Somewhat paradoxically, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has triggered important improvements to the security situation in Northern Europe, including strengthened commitment of NATO and accession of Finland and Sweden to the Alliance.

In order to turn these positive steps into a sustainable security, it is essential for countries in the region to provide maximum support to Ukraine to push back the aggressor and win the war.”
