Latvia Became the 19th Guarantor of Security in Ukraine

Another country joined the G7 Joint declaration of support for Ukraine

Riga decided to support Ukraine during and after the war. Therefore, the Latvian government has signed a document indicating full support for the G7 initiative in Ukraine. This means that Latvia, like the 18 countries that have already signed such an agreement (Belgium, Denmark, Czech Republic, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Norway, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, and Greece), is ready to provide multisectoral support to the country. The government of Latvia will continue to provide military assistance to Ukraine for the time being. In the long term, the country will also provide political, economic, financial and humanitarian assistance and participate in the reconstruction of the country.

In addition, Latvia called on the world to establish an international tribunal for those who are responsible for crimes against Ukrainians. Riga believes that Russian soldiers and war cooperators should be punished for the attack on Ukraine, its destruction, the killing of civilians and repeated crimes.

In contrast, Latvia supports Ukraine's accession to NATO and the European Union. Therefore, the country will continue to lobby the interests of Ukraine in this direction as well.
