According to experts, Estonia faces mass layoff, unless the situation changes.
The Estonian delegation has set off to Russia Moscow in order to discuss details of the issue. Estonia is sure that reduction of the cargo flow will negatively affect the situation in ports and at the railroads.

They believe in the Tallinn port that the enterprise will be able to recover at the cost of passenger transportation. Beside that, the state will have to increase funding of the railroad sector in order to compensate somehow for Russia's exit from Estonia.
As Pravda.Ru reported, relations between Russia and Estonia aggravated given Estonia's claims on the allegedly "aggressive intelligence acts" of Russia.
