The Estonian Parliament held a minute of silence on Monday to remember the recent tragic events in the Ukraine.

It is unclear who initiated the remembrance, with Parliament Speaker Eiki Nestor (Social Democrat) saying the initiative came from the board of the Parliament.

Center Party MP Mihhail Stalnuhhin, the only MP to vote against a Parliament's condemnation of Russia's Crimean invasion in March, said he proposed the idea.

“The troubles in Ukraine have worsened and hundreds have already been killed. The Parliament shows with the minute of silence the desire to seek a peaceful solution to the conflict and that is what the whole of Europe wants,” Stalnuhhin said in a press release.
