    The Russian authorities could ratify a border regulating treaty between Russia and Estonia in the foreseeable future, the chairman of the Russian lower house of parliament's international affairs committee said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — He added that at the same time there were certain tensions in bilateral relations between Russia and Estonia at the moment.

    "The committee has not stopped its work on these important files. I think that Russia has a chance to reach ratification in the foreseeable future," Leonid Slutsky said at the press conference at the Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency.

    In 2014, Moscow and Tallinn signed a set of border treaties, regulating the land borders, as well as maritime areas between Russia and Estonia. The treaties replaced the previous agreements that had not been ratified by Russia, because of unilateral changes made in the text by Estonia.
