HELSINKI, June 27 (RIA Novosti) - Russia has revoked its signature on a border treaty with Estonia, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

There will be no ratification since there will be no agreement itself, the minister said. "We need to start new negotiations to settle the border issues," Lavrov added.
