The article presents information on the study focusing on the skepticism of Estonia regarding the European Union. The trade interests of the Estonians prevented the accession of the European Union (EU). Estonian regions which have faced economic degradation and social disharmony for the loss of Russian subsidies and the lack of Western investment recorded the greatest rates of skepticism. The access of Estonia to the markets of Europe have been thwarted by the protectionist trade policy of EU.
