The government in Tallinn says it aims to end Russian gas imports in time for the start of the "heating season" in the autumn. Ministers say they've agreed with Finland to lease a floating terminal to enable imports of liquefied natural gas (LNG).
"Today we made a decision to stop buying Russian gas. It's not possible to go ahead by feeding a Russian war machine," Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas told a press conference.
Although only 7% of Estonia's energy comes from gas, almost all of it comes from Russia.
Lithuania has called on the rest of the EU to follow its example and get ri of its dependence on Russian gas. It's spent several years investing in LNG. Latvian Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins has vowed to abandon Russian supplies too.
The head of Latvia's natural gas storage operator says Russian gas stopped flowing into the Baltics at the start of April anyway, because there are plenty of reserves stored underground. The question is whether Latvia and Estonia will be able have enough supplies by next winter.
