LTV: Latvian volunteer killed on Ukrainian front

A volunteer warrior from Latvia has died in Ukraine, several soldiers confirmed to Latvian Television (LTV). His name or nickname is not currently disclosed and there is no official confirmation from the authorities of Latvia or Ukraine.

According to information available to LTV, the warrior died in a drone strike near Liman in eastern Ukraine.

The report of the victim from Latvia was confirmed by the former Commander of the National Armed Forces Juris Dalbiņš. He said on LTV's “Today's Question” broadcast Tuesday that he had received a voice message about the fallen Latvian warrior in Ukraine a few hours earlier.

“His comrades will make sure that he is brought to Latvia and buried in accordance with military regulations,” Dalbins said.

Latvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs press secretary Diāna Eglīte acknowledged that information about this fact was received from the embassy in Ukraine, but official confirmation from Ukrainian authorities is pending.
