The Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs will help cover the health-care costs of those injured at the protests in Ukraine with a contribution of 50,000 euros.

The ministry had asked health-care system experts about Estonia's capacity to provide injured Ukrainians with health services in Estonia, but has decided on a donation instead, the ministry said on Saturday.

The funds will be transferred to the International Renaissance Foundation, an NGO in Ukraine set up by Hungarian-born American business magnate George Soros to develop open society in the country.

Hundreds of protesters and police officers have been injured and up to 10 have been killed in three months of protests against the sitting government.
