“Today's meeting is yet another proof that Europe and NATO are united. It is within our common powers to give Ukraine all the support it needs to win the war against Russia,” Kariņš said.

In order to strengthen the positions of the Ukrainian forces in the battlefield, Latvia has joined the Czech-led initiative on the procurement of artillery ammunition for Ukraine.
