Baltic foreign ministers head to Ukraine for show of solidarity

The foreign ministers of all three Baltic states are heading to Ukraine for a show of solidarity with that country as it deals with Russia's repeated breaking of international law on Ukrainian territory. 

On 24 and 25 February 2022, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Latvia, Edgars Rinkēvičs, together with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Estonia, Eva Maria Liimets, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania, Gabrielius Landbergis, will make their visit to Ukraine "to demonstrate solidarity and support for Ukraine at the time when Russia has launched yet another serious attack on Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity," according to the Latvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.  

Meetings have been scheduled for the Ministers with the President of Ukraine, the Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of the Ukrainian Parliament, the Prime Minister, and the Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Defense.

The Baltic States’ ministers and senior Ukrainian officials will discuss the current security situation and possibilities for the international community to assist Ukraine with enhancing its resilience and stabilisation of the economic situation. The Foreign Ministers will also present information on designing and enforcement of the European Union sanctions against Russia in response to Russia’s aggression.
