VDD works closely with the State Police (VP). Services will also monitor the security situation in Latvia on May 9.
According to VDD, like in previous years, there is a risk that, on May 9, certain pro-Kremlin-minded individuals can exercise demonstrative, defiant, or unlawful activities in support of Russian interests.
VDD asks the public to refrain from responding to them and to inform the responsible services in the face of these types of activities.
Citizens who have information on provocative or illegal activities planned on May 9 are invited to call VDD at 67208964 or write to [email protected]. If such activities are witnessed on May 9, inform the police by calling 110.
In accordance with the Law on the Prohibition of Individual Public Measures on May 9, adopted on April 20 this year, it is prohibited to organize public entertainment and holiday events, meetings, walks, and pickets, aimed at destroying and threatening the values of Latvia as a democratic and national state, the division of society, glorifying war, military aggression, totalitarianism or violence, and displaying false historical events.
