VIDEO: A brief history of «Latvia»s Statue of Liberty'

LSM has already written about the birthday of Latvia's Freedom Monument, the beautiful, elegant construction that stands in the heart of Riga.

Now NATO - of which Latvia as been a full member for 12 years - has produced an excellent video to introduce the monument - and 'Milda' atop it - to the world.

Accompanying the footage are the reminiscences of Ojārs Eriks Kalniņš, formerly Latvia's ambassador to the United States and now a respected member of the Latvian Saeima.

Rather than reproducing here what he says, why not click on the link below to watch and listen for yourself?
