“This is what accountability means. I will always have a crush on your exemplary, progressive and dynamic leadership.”

“As you work from home, never forget to take good care of yourself. Dear PM Kaja, I wish you quick and wholeness recovery.”

Many other Twitter users posted messages of support to the Estonian Prime Minister, however, some users debated the covid vaccine:


The news of the Prime Minister of Estonia testing positive for Covid comes just after she demanded that Europe stop issuing tourist visas for Russians, as reported on Tuesday August 9.

Taking to Twitter the Prime Minister of Estonia shared her opinion on EU tourist visas for Russians stating:

“Stop issuing tourist visas to Russians. Visiting #Europe is a privilege, not a human right. Air travel from RU is shut down. It means while Schengen countries issue visas, neighbours to Russia carry the burden (FI, EE, LV – sole access points). Time to end tourism from Russia now.”
