President Kersti Kaljulaid made changes to the Government and, on a proposal by Prime Minister Jüri Ratas, dismissed Minister of Defence Margus Tsahkna, Minister of the Environment Marko Pomerants and Minister of Finance Sven Sester and appointed Jüri Luik as the new Minister of Defence, Siim Kiisler as the new Minister of the Environment and Toomas Tõniste as the new Minister of Finance.

"From the very start, these newly appointed ministers have to give their very best. Technically, we have already begun our Presidency of the Council of the European Union; therefore, our government bears an exceptional responsibility. I wish good luck to our Government and our new Ministers," said President Kaljulaid after meeting with the prime minister and the ministers.
