So far 9,333 Ukrainian civilians have asked the civil defense commissions of Latvian municipalities for help, the Minsiter for Environmental Protection and Regional Development Artūrs Toms Plešs told Latvian Television on March 21.

The minister said that “it is a rather significant number” and that a large part of the Ukrainian civilian population has families here.

With each day, the refugee reception system in Latvia is improving, the minister said, adding that it varies from municipality to municipality, depending on the funds available, availability of residences, and also the level of awareness.

Plešs said that information sharing among the organizations and authorities involved in the refugee reception process could be improved. "There is a sufficiently wide-ranging network of public and local authorities' single customer service centers, with more than 120 branches. We are currently working so Ukrainians can make use of it," said Plešs.
