The Swedes Show Some Backbone...

According to Eesti Päevaleht online, the Swedish foreign ministry is the latest to take Estonia's side in the border dispute. In an article published today, a Swedish ministry spokesperson is quoted as saying:
"Rootsi hinnangul puuduvad igasugused takistused...mis ei voimaldaks kokkulepetel joustuda."

Translation: "In assessment of Sweden, obstacles of all sorts are absent from permitting the agreement to come into force."

It should be noted that Sweden's foreign minister is Laila Freivalds, who was born in Riga in 1942, and fled to Sweden to escape the Soviet occupation of Latvia.
