While in Tallinn,Krylov pressed the Estonians to ratify the troop withdrawal accord,said that Moscow would never acknowledge the 1920 Tartu Treaty–thataccord "doesn’t work any more"– and warned Tallinnthat it must choose "either cooperation or the path of non-recognition.""I think the latter is not advisable," he added.
