One of the founders - in 1975 - of the Estonian Desk at Radio Liberty has passed on. Karin Saarsen worked initially in Munich alongside Dr. Jaan Pennar (1924-1996), but returned some time later to Stockholm, continuing thereafter to provide Estonian-language features for Radio Free Europe-Radio Liberty as a stringer.

Estonian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sven Mikser and Minister of Defense Jüri Luik were in Washington last week for meetings with their U.S. counterparts. Minister Mikser made a joint visit to the State Department with his Latvian and Lithuanian counterparts on March 5th. They held a productive meeting with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, where all agreed on the need to address with deeper cooperation the Kremlin’s malicious disinformation and cyber campaigns against the West.

This work of art by Berlin-based Danish artist Lise Harlev is currently getting a lot of exposure due to its location and Estonia’s centenary. It’s on the Tallinna Kunsti/hoone (Art Hall) fassaad facing Vabaduse väljak (Freedom Square).

Dear Secretaries Tillerson and Mnuchin, 


As organizations dedicated to the promotion of universal human rights and/or the fight against corruption, we welcome the Trump Administration’s recent decision to impose sanctions against 15 foreign individuals and 37 entities for human rights violations and acts of corruption under the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act of 2016 (PL 114-328, Subtitle F), as well as the issuance of Executive Order (EO) 13818, which expands the scope of actors and entities potentially subject to sanctions under the law.
