On 21 November 2023, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Latvia, Krišjānis Kariņš, will take part in a video meeting of the G7+ Ministers of Foreign Affairs, during which a discussion will be held on support planned for the restoration of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.
The Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Dmitro Kuleba, will also participate to inform those present about the current state of affairs in Ukraine’s energy sector and the challenges of the coming winter.
