Wounded Ukrainian soldiers to be treated in Latvia

The treatment of wounded Ukrainian soldiers as part of a rehabilitation program coordinated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will resume on 15 August 2022, the Ministry said August 15.

Twelve Ukrainian soldiers will begin a three-week treatment course at the National Rehabilitation Center “Vaivari” in order to help them recover from serious injuries sustained while defending Ukraine from the unprovoked attack of the Russian war machine.

"Taking into account the full-scale war launched by Russia against Ukraine on 24 February, the Cabinet of Ministers agreed on 7 March to renew a government support programme for the rehabilitation of military personnel injured in Ukraine. The Cabinet allocated a 280,000 euro package from the State Budget Program, 'Funds for Unforeseen Events', for the rehabilitation of military personnel injured in the conflict in Ukraine, covering rehabilitation costs, travel expenses and costs for technical aids," said a statement from the Ministry.

The prioritisation and transportation of Ukrainian patients, as well as the provision of rehabilitation services at the National Rehabilitation Center “Vaivari”, is coordinated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in cooperation with the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Welfare and with support from the Ministry of Defense.

The provision of medical assistance to individuals wounded during the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine began in 2014.
