On Friday, January 26, Latvian Finance Minister Arvils Ašeradens met with Lithuanian Finance Minister Gintarė Skaistė to discuss the European Union's support to Ukraine, questions about sanctions against Russia and Belarus, as well as the introduction of the new Economic Management Mechanism and the current economic situation and forecasts.

The ministers of the two countries agreed that Ukraine should receive all the necessary resources to continue to defend itself in the war initiated by Russia until complete victory and that the EU should strengthen both its support for Ukraine and strictly observe the established sanctions against Russia.

"Latvia has supported the government and citizens of Ukraine for two years, providing both military aid and support to Ukrainian refugees in Latvia, humanitarian aid and financial support to the Ukrainian government. We will continue to stand up for Ukraine and our freedom and the security of the region, providing the necessary support in the future until the complete victory of Ukraine," said Ašeradens in the conversation.
