Parliamentary secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Gunda Reire, met with Ukraine's first lady, Olena Zelenska, on Wednesday, November 23, during a meeting of high-level European women's leaders in Kyiv.
"Unfortunately, violence against women and girls is still being used as a weapon in war, as a weapon of war, and as an instrument of political oppression.
"Therefore, I was honored to confirm that a female rehabilitation center will be opened next week in western Ukraine, Ivano-Frankivsk, resulting from a very important co-financing of Latvia. At the center, women who have suffered and were victims of sexual abuse as a result of Russian aggression will be able to find shelter. Will be able to get legal help, rehab," Reire said.
