The European Union shouldn’t wait for Russia to make a move on Ukraine and must be united in sending a strong message of deterrence, Estonia’s prime minister said. 

EU leaders meeting in Brussels for a two-day summit are discussing a potential response to a Russian military buildup on Ukraine’s borders, which Kyiv and Washington have warned could be a precursor to an invasion.
