Head of Estonian Security Police: Russia wants to divide the EU

According to the Director General of the Security Police of Estonia, Arnold Sinisalu, Russia is trying to split the European Union, as written in his Preface to the Department’s Annual Report for 2015, RIA Novosti reported.

"The armed conflict in Ukraine started in 2014. Russia keeps trying to split the European Union and until the territorial integrity of Ukraine is restored, the security of Europe is not ensured," Sinisalu said.

The Director of the Security Police notes that the EU is now experiencing difficulties due to the migration crisis. In his opinion, it affects the safety of the community in general and in Estonia.

Sinisalu also believes that "the Federal Security Service (FSB) of Russia, who is directly subordinate to the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, continues to be the most aggressive group against Estonia among the Russian Special Services."

The Security Police of Estonia is responsible for protecting the public interest.

The fighting in the east of Ukraine has been ongoing since the Spring of 2014. Russia has repeatedly stated that it is not a party to the conflict in The Donbas.
