Latvian President confident in European Union’s decision to provide assistance to Ukraine
Latvian President Edgars Rinkevics is confident that the European Union will make a decision on financial support for Ukraine.
"I am confident that this will be done, but maybe it will take more time. I think that Ukraine needs help now, and there are many needs in Ukraine, and needs not only on the battlefield, but also in other areas of government. And I would also like to say that, of course, we constantly emphasize the need to start the negotiation process between the EU and Ukraine as soon as possible and that the decision should be, in fact, already in December,” Rinkevics said at a press conference in Kyiv on Friday after negotiations with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
But, the Latvian president noted, “there are certain complex technical aspects here.”
“And this process requires constant political pressure from friends of Ukraine at the level of expert meetings, at the level of meetings between ministries in the European Council,” Rinkevics noted.
