In an interview to Austria's Kurier newspaper, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko claimed that it is "possible" that Russian President Vladimir Putin would attack Finland, the Baltic states, as well as the countries around the Black Sea.

Poroshenko made the comment after claiming that "9,000 Russian soldiers" are present in Ukrainian territory. On Saturday, a day before Poroshenko's statement, Estonia's Foreign Minister Marina Kaljurand said that Russia does present a military threat for the country.

"Is it possible that he attacks Finland: Yes. That he attacks the Baltic states: Yes. The Black Sea States: Yes," Poroshenko said in the interview.

Poroshenko's claim that Russia would attack the Baltic states was contradicted by Estonia, whose foreign minister said the previous day that Russia does not pose a military threat to the Baltic country.

"At this moment we do not see a direct threat for NATO from the direction of Russia," Estonia's foreign minister said.

Kaljurand made the statement in response to a report from Sweden, which claims that Russia could attack the Baltic states.
