One year and three weeks ago Estonian security officer Eston Kohver was abducted by Russian Security Services from Estonian territory. His illegal detention - a clear and grave violation of international law - is finally over, Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas said in a statement.

"I thank Eston and his family for not giving up at this difficult time. Thank you for never losing your faith and trust in your country," Rõivas said.

He added: "I thank Minister of Interior, Director of the Internal Security Service and all those who worked day and night for his immediate release, and the Estonian people who never lost hope."

"I thank our friends, allies and the wider international community for your solidarity, determination and support," he also said, adding that even at the most difficult times, people should never stop believing in justice and fairness. "Today is a clear proof of that."
