While addressing Henn Põlluaas, President of the Riigikogu of the Republic of Estonia, Viktoras Pranckietis extended the wishes of every success and meaningful work to the Riigikogu and prosperity to the Estonian people.
‘The repression of the Soviet Union against the Estonian people did not break them down and did not stifle the idea of freedom and desire to live in an independent country.
