“The corresponding decree was signed by the head of state on February 6,” ERR said in a statement.

Earlier, Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas said on Sky News that the authorities of the republic consider Russian tourists a threat to the country's security.

On January 18, the Russian embassy in Estonia temporarily suspended the acceptance of applications for renunciation of Russian citizenship.

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that Russia is lowering the level of diplomatic relations with Estonia to chargé d'affaires.

This measure, as specified in the department, is a step in response to the radical reduction of the composition of the Russian embassy by Tallinn.
