Statement by NB8 Foreign Ministers on the abduction of an Estonian police officer


We express our deepest concern about the 5 September 2014 incident where an Estonian police officer Mr. Eston Kohver, while on duty to prevent cross-border crime, was abducted by the Russian Security Services on Estonian territory near the Estonian-Russian border.

Mr. Kohver was taken by force to Russia and is currently being held in custody in Moscow.

We call on the Russian Federation to immediately release Mr. Kohver and ensure his safe return to Estonia.
