Estonian President Toomas Ilves has called for a permanent Nato force to be stationed in his country. Mr Ilves told the UK's Daily Telegraph newspaper that Estonia felt threatened by Russian military flights and exercises in the area, as well as by belligerent rhetoric from Moscow.
But the 1997 Nato-Russia Founding Act forbids the presence of permanent bases in eastern and central Europe.
Also some finnish politicians are calling for Finland to join nato, anyway they have called this for many years now but seems like majority do not wish that to happen.
Maybe its the plan all along, it would create at least much more higher tension between EU/NATO vs Russia, perhaps even would start a large scale war ( long waited ww3).

Estonia doesn't want to end up like Crimea or Donbass or Donetsk. Watching as part of it's land mass is simply annexed by the Russian Federation and it's businesses handed over to Russian Oligarchs by Putin as a reward for supporting the Russian dictator.
Estonia is clearly asking for help in keeping it's land out of Russian hands.
russia has proven their intent to reclaim lost territory multiple times the past 10 years yet people still don't take fears of invasion from them seriously?
