Estonia at 100: President Kaljulaid on risks, opportunities and Europhilia

It's the small Baltic state that's lived through Soviet rule, invasion by Nazi Germany, independence, plus joining the EU, NATO and euro currency - all within the last century. Estonia's President Kersti Kaljulaid tells FRANCE 24's Catherine Nicholson how her country is celebrating its 100th anniversary of becoming a republic this year.

The Estonian president also shares her recollections of life under the USSR; tells us what kinds of threats she sees to Estonia and the wider continent from Russia; and reflects on cyber opportunities and risks in the digital age.
