The military support provided by Latvia includes weapons, individual equipment, dry food rations, munitions, antitank weapons, anti-aircraft missiles Stinger, unmanned aircraft, self-propelling howitzers, helicopters, fuel, and other goods.

With the support of the Latvian Ministries of Defense and Foreign Affairs, humanitarian aid is regularly delivered to Ukraine, including warm tactical clothing, footwear, and equipment for soldiers, long-lasting food products, as well as specially prepared vehicles. The latest shipment also included military equipment supplied by the National Armed Forces.

The senior expert on international military religious cooperation Elmārs Pļaviņš said that with the support of the “Entrepreneurs for Peace” movement, the vehicles donated mainly come to the Ukrainian armed forces and National Guard units and are effectively used daily to perform various important support functions. 

The Ministry of Defense, in cooperation with the “Entrepreneurs for Peace” organization, is implementing an initiative aimed at collecting donations of more than EUR seven million to provide military vehicles, armor, armored ambulances, technology solutions, and other forms of military assistance to the Ukrainian armed forces.
