Minister of Economic Affairs and Communications of Estonia Juhan Parts stated that the two recent EU directives, directly affecting Estonia, cause serious questions to him.
One of the directives obliges Estonia to install 12,000 charging stations for electric vehicles. In the second directive, it was decided to introduce common standards for such stations, which are contrary to the standards currently used in Estonia.
"Reading such things you just start distrusting people dreaming of the big federalism in Europe" - noted Parts. "Such rapid unilateral decision on the issue of standards is amazing. Now we will have to fight for defending our investments" - lamented the minister.
