Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Latvian Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins have discussed the situation on the front lines and the issue of providing weapons to Ukraine.

"I had a meeting with Prime Minister of Latvia Krisjanis Karins. Spoke about the situation at the front. It is critically important to unite the efforts of all Ukraine's partners and allies at this crucial moment.

He thanked Latvia for its powerful political, defense, financial and humanitarian support for Ukraine.

"Your society and the President have been supporting our sovereignty, our people, and our territorial integrity since the very beginning of this full-scale war, even from the first days of 2014, when this war actually began," Zelensky said.

Karins arrived in Kyiv on March 16.

Latvia advocates the beginning of negotiations on Ukraine's membership in the EU already this year and on the country's accession to NATO immediately after its victory in the war.

Latvia has already provided EUR 300 million in military aid to Ukraine, and with the implementation of a new package, this amount will grow to EUR 370 million.
