War in Ukraine: help from Latvia
In January 2023, Ukraine received another batch of military aid from Latvia. The new pack includes Stinger anti-aircraft missile systems, helicopters, machine guns with ammunition and drones.
In addition, the Minister of Finance of Latvia offered to hand over cars confiscated from drunk drivers to Ukraine free of charge. However, for this it is necessary to amend the laws.
