The Order was presented to the Speaker of the Saeima by Ruslan Stefanchuk, Chair of the Parliament of Ukraine.

“It is a great honor and high commendation for Latvia for its consistent support and assistance to the state and people of Ukraine over the course of many years. We will continue to do so for as long as necessary to restore justice and international order and for Russia to receive just punishment for the crimes it has committed,” Mūrniece was quoted.

Mūrniece is on a working visit to Zagreb, capital of Croatia. The International Crimea Platform, established in 2021, is a government, parliament, and expert‑level coordination and consultation format.
