Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics wished the Russians defeat on Russia Day.
"Russia is marking its National, I wish defeat in the aggressive war against Ukraine, abandoning imperial ambitions and unltimately creation of modern, democratic and legal state," he wrote on Twitter.
- On April 21, the Latvian Seimas declared Russiaʼs war against Ukraine genocide.
- On May 12, the demolition of Soviet monuments was allowed in Latvia. The Seimas has terminated Article 13 of the Latvian-Russian Treaty on the Preservation of Memorial Buildings. Latvia justified this decision by the fact that Russia is committing war crimes in Ukraine.
- On June 6, the National Council for Electronic Media of Latvia banned the broadcasting of all Russian TV channels in the country until Russia ends the war and returns Crimea.
