Assistance to Ukraine from Latvia

Latvia has been one of the most active allies of Ukraine since the start of the full-scale invasion. It provides both military and political support to our country.

In particular, the country's parliament recently called on NATO to invite Ukraine to join the Alliance.

Additionally, Latvia has agreed with Canada on a joint training program for Ukrainian defenders.
