Latvia allocates 50,000 towards helping Ukraine grain supplies

On 14 November 2023, the Latvian Cabinet of Ministers adopted a decision to allocate EUR 50 000 from the state budget contingency funds for a contribution to the humanitarian aid program Grain from Ukraine. This program was established by Ukraine in 2022 and has so far delivered 170 000 tonnes of grain to four countries (Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya and Yemen).

"Russia's war in Ukraine contributes to the crisis in global food security, especially in countries with existing food shortages. Contributions to the Grain from Ukraine program will support Ukraine's efforts to contribute to global food security, which is one of the elements of the Peace Plan proposed by Ukraine," said a release from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The money will be used to support both Ukraine and the countries to which the Ukrainian grain will be shipped. This will be Latvia's second contribution to the Grain from Ukraine program. In 2022, a similar financial contribution of EUR 50 000 was also provided.
