"Latvia condemns Russia's aggressive actions in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov and calls on Russia to comply with international law by immediately stopping aggressive action," a statement said.
Latvia supports the territorial integrity of Ukraine and the integrity of its borders, and calls on the international community "to respond with rigorous and consistent action to Russia's aggressive actions," the statement added.
The Russian Federation had violated international law and freedom of navigation in its actions against Ukrainian naval ships, the ministry said.
Similar criticism came from the Prime Minister of Estonia, Juri Ratas, and Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite.
The incident in Kerch Strait is a serious breach of international law. I condemn Russia's seizure of Ukrainian naval vessels, blocking of the Kerch Strait and aggression against Ukraine. I support the European Union and NATO's call for a de-escalation of the tense situation.— Jüri Ratas (@ratasjuri) November 25, 2018
