Last week, the government decided to donate 18 cars, seized by the state from drunk drivers, to Ukraine.
"This trip had six of the eight first [vehicles]. One headed out on Friday, one is still here. All made it. The [vehicles] have been given to the Ukrainians, and all is fine," said Pozņaks. Three cars have been given to medical establishments and the rest to the army.
"The main concern is that the cars survive the journey. It's a good filter. If they stop then better on the way, not in Ukraine," said Pozņaks.
In mid-February, the Saeima adopted a final reading of the amendments to the Ukrainian civil peoples support law, which provides that vehicles seized by the State, including cars seized from drunk drivers, will be allowed to be transferred to Ukraine. The amendments provide for the possibility to transfer vehicles under the jurisdiction of the State of Latvia to Ukrainian government ownership as general aid to Ukrainian society.
