“Russia, by invading Ukraine has violated, in a brutal and inhumane manner, the international law with the UN Charter at its core. As a way to safeguard international law, like-minded democracies all over the world must help Ukraine win the war against Russia,” Krišjānis Kariņš noted. The Foreign Minister underlined that Latvia and the majority oxf European countries were considerably increasing their defence expenditure and the capacity of military industry, thereby strengthening the capabilities of defence and deterrence against Russia.

Krišjānis Kariņš also met with experts from the Atlantic Council think-tank, Paula Dobriansky and Matthew Kroening, for a discussion on the security climate in the world, especially transatlantic cooperation in support of Ukraine in its fights against Russia’s full-scale aggression.
