Latvia consistently condemns annexation of Crimea by Russia - Foreign Ministry of Latvia

Latvia will continue condemn the illegal annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation.

This has been reported in a statement of the Foreign Ministry of Latvia

"Two years ago, on 20 February 2014, Russia’s military activities triggered the process of the illegal annexation of Crimea leading up to the illegitimate referendum on 16 March on Crimea joining the Russian Federation. On 18 March, the Russian Federation took a decision on the incorporation of Crimea," reads the statement.

By continuing the process of illegal annexation, Russia is in gross violation of its international commitments and acting contrary to international law.

"Up till now and also in future, Latvia together with the international community will consistently condemn this action thereby continuing the policy of non-recognition of the illegal annexation of Crimea. Latvia is a staunch supporter of the restoration of Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty," the statement noted.
