Latvia to announce new support package for Ukraine during Zelenskyy’s visit

On Thursday, the 11th of January, after his press conference with his Ukrainian colleague Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Latvian President Edgars Rinkēvičs will announce a new package of Latvia’s support for Ukraine, said the Latvian president’s advisor Mārtiņš Drēģeris, answering a question from LETA.
This week the Ukrainian president is visiting Baltic States. On Wednesday, the 10th of January, Zelenskyy arrived in Lithuania on an unannounced visit. On Thursday he will arrive in Latvia. Estonia will be visited last.
Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas announced on the 8th of January that in the next four years Estonia will continue providing Kyiv with military support equal to 0.25% of Estonia’s GDP. The volume of support provided so far reaches EUR 500 million.
“Estonia’s contribution to Ukraine’s victory in the next four years will reach 0.25% of GDP. If every country contributed 0.25%, this is what Ukraine needs to win this war,” Kallas told journalists after a meeting of the National Security Council, inviting European, Nordic and other countries to follow Tallinn’s example.
Lithuanian officials confirmed that during today’s visit of the Ukrainian president they plan to announce additional aid for Ukraine.
