Latvian entrepreneurs report 10 million euros' worth of aid to Ukraine

Since the start of Russia's full-scale war in Ukraine, the Entrepreneurs for Peace Foundation, which brings together more than 300 Latvian companies, has sent more than €10 million in aid to Ukraine, the foundation said on March 27.

With the support of donors, 460 drones, 135 generators, 413 vehicles including ambulances, tractor-trailers, and boats, 104 aiming and night vision equipment, 525 mobile charging stations and computers, and 8,237 items of clothing and equipment for soldiers have been sent to Ukraine since February 24, 2022.

Donations of €6.7 million were channeled for strengthening the Ukrainian Armed Forces and €2 million for humanitarian aid shipments for Ukrainian civilians. 650,000 euros were provided to support Ukrainian hospitals, while another 650,000 euros were spent on reconstruction projects in Chernihiv and Yahidne.

In 2024, €750,000 will be sent to Ukraine. 

The total amount of assistance is €10,015,209.44.

Last week saw another convoy of vehicles, this time in close cooperation with the State Police, deliver critically needed vehicles, drones, mobile charging stations, etc. to Ukrainian Armed Forces and police units.

"Today, the Ukrainian Police, with limited resources, is not only taking care of the internal security of its people and land, but also fighting for human lives, freedom and the future of its country in wartime. In such circumstances, there is no doubt whatsoever about the necessity and obligation of our support. Although our assistance capabilities are limited, I am proud that we can do so together with our cooperation partners, who have the means to invest in the preparation of technical units to strengthen the fighting capabilities of their Ukrainian counterparts. Thank you to all those who are standing by and helping the Ukrainian people. Glory to Ukraine," said Latvian State Police Chief Armands Ruks.
