Latvian ministers call for immediate Russia sanctions

Latvia's Foreign Minister and Defense Minister both said Sunday that Russia should be subject to immediate western sanctions as a result of the undiminished threat posed to Ukraine's sovereign territory.

Both ministers took to Twitter to express similar views in English.


Nor were the two ministers alone, with Lithuania's Foreign Minister expressing near-identical views as opinion appears to shift from implementing sanctions as and when Russia launches an invasion, to pre-emptively applying sanctions to make to clear the West views Russia's continued intimidation of Ukraine as unacceptable.
