Russians on the border with Latvia are asked to sign a document

On the border with Latvia, Russians, in order to get into the civilized world, must sign a document that they condemn Russia's aggression in Ukraine. The Latvian Security Service reported: special attention is paid to foreigners who:

  • served in Russian or Belarusian law enforcement agencies;
  • display symbols glorifying Russian aggression;
  • declare a negative attitude towards Latvia.

The Latvian Security Service stressed that many foreigners were no longer allowed to enter the territory of Latvia. We are talking about people who spread cynical and absurd Kremlin military propaganda messages.

Pay attention! From the first days of a full-scale war, Latvia has been supporting Ukraine in countering Russian aggression. In July 2022, the government of Latvia approved a new military aid tranche. The news was announced by Artis Pabriks, Minister of Defense of Latvia.
