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

Take note – story published 8 years and 4 months ago

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.
