Latvia's assistance to Ukraine

Latvia is preparing a new aid package for Ukraine, including howitzers, ammunition, and more. Additionally, an agreement on military cooperation between the two countries has been signed, particularly concerning drone production.

Overall, Latvia has provided Ukraine with assistance totaling 595 million euros since the start of Russia's full-scale aggression. This constitutes 0.85% of the country's GDP.
