Latvia promised to deliver weapons to Ukraine in case of conflict with Russia

RIGA, 22 Dec. Latvia is ready to deliver weapons to Ukraine in the event of an escalation of the situation on the Russian-Ukrainian the border, the Minister of Defense of the Republic Artis Pabriks told reporters. On Tuesday, the Lithuanian Minister of Defense Arvydas Anushauskas said that the Baltic countries are ready to provide military and non-military assistance to Ukraine. Ukraine asked the EU for additional financial assistance “The weapons are very different, and if necessary, we will deliver them (to Ukraine),” the minister said. According to him, Latvia has the opportunity to deliver both military and non-military goods to Ukraine. The minister did not give more detailed comments. Earlier, Pabriks said that Latvia may have to demand the presence of a larger contingent of NATO troops in the republic due to the situation around Ukraine. Kiev and Western states have recently expressed concern about the alleged increase in “aggressive actions “by Russia at the borders of Ukraine. Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that Russia is moving troops within its territory and at its own discretion. According to him, this does not threaten anyone and should not worry anyone. Russia has repeatedly denied accusations by the West and Ukraine, claiming that statements of “Russian aggression” are being used as an excuse to deploy more NATO military equipment near Russian borders. Military exercises have begun in Latvia near the border with Russia and Belarus
