    On 14 February outgoing Ambassador of Ukraine to Latvia Yevgen Perebyinis paid a farewell visit to the Saeima, having met with its Speaker Ināra Mūrniece.

    The Latvian Speaker thanked the Ambassador for his contribution to the development of Latvian – Ukrainian relations, having underscored the dynamics of the bilateral political dialogue at intergovernmental, interparliamentary level and people-to-people contacts. She reassured the Ambassador of Latvia’s ongoing necessary support and assistance in fighting against the Russian aggression.

The Speaker confirmed Latvia’s resolute position on preserving the sanctions against Russia until it completely abides the Minsk agreements and de-occupies Crimea.

    In his turn, the Ambassador thanked the members of the Latvian parliament and Speaker Ināra Mūrniece personally for her invaluable contribution to the development of humanitarian projects in Ukraine and clear support of territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine, solidarity in standing against the Russian aggression.
