The support of the Republic of Latvia is crucial for the struggle for the return of the temporarily occupied Ukrainian territories.

Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Dmytro Razumkov said this during a joint briefing with Speaker of the Saeima of the Republic of Latvia Ināra Mūrniece, who is on a visit to Ukraine, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"During today's talks, we raised many important issues for our states. First of all, one of the key issues for Ukraine is the struggle for its territorial integrity and independence. Latvia's support is key and important in the struggle for the return of our territories, the struggle for the people who are now in the temporarily occupied territories, whose rights and freedoms are being suppressed," Razumkov said.

The speaker noted that for the parliaments of Ukraine and Latvia, an important issue is the deepening of inter-parliamentary relations, which, according to him, are now active at the level of friendship groups, specialized committees, and communication between the leadership of parliaments.

Razumkov also said that the visit of the speaker of the Saeima to Ukraine is taking place on the eve of Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Crimean Tatar Genocide. He thanked Mūrniece for the fact that the Latvian parliament recognized the deportation of the Crimean Tatar people as genocide.

As Ukrinform reported, Speaker of the Saeima of the Republic of Latvia Ināra Mūrniece is on an official visit to Ukraine on May 17-20, 2021.

On Wednesday, May 19, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Dmytro Razumkov and Speaker of the Saeima of Latvia Ināra Mūrniece will visit the frontline territories.
