Latvia to send more military aid to Ukraine
The Latvian government supported a call from the Ministry of Defense to provide additional military support to Ukraine.
“For now, I cannot provide very comprehensive information. I can only express thanks that the Latvian government this morning supported the call of the Ministry of Defense to provide additional military assistance to our friend Ukraine and its armed forces,” Defense Minister of Latvia Artis Pabriks told Latvian Radio.
So far, Latvia has provided military support to Ukraine worth more than 200 million euros, providing weapons and individual equipment, drones, dry food rations, ammunition, anti-tank weapons, and Stinger anti-aircraft missiles. Per capita, it is one of the largest military donors to Ukraine, a point underlined by Pabriks in his comments.
“We have already provided support in the amount of at least one-third of our military budget. This amount, which we agreed on today, is also measured in double-digits.
