Latvia will allocate 50,000 euros for Grain from Ukraine
Latvia agreed to allocate 50,000 euros as a contribution to the Grain from Ukraine humanitarian program.
On November 14, the Cabinet of Ministers of Latvia decided to allocate 50,000 euros from the state budget program “Funds for Contingencies” as a contribution to the Grain from Ukraine initiative.
Ukraine launched this program back in 2022. As part of the humanitarian initiative, 170,000 tons of grain have already been delivered to Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya and Yemen.
“Russia’s invasion of Ukraine provokes a global food crisis, especially in countries where there is already a food shortage. The contribution to the Grain from Ukraine program will support Ukraine’s efforts to promote global food security, which is one of the elements of the Peace Initiative proposed by Ukraine,” the Latvian Foreign Ministry said in a statement. As a reminder, this is Latvia’s second contribution to the Grain from Ukraine program. In 2022, the country also provided 50,000 euros of financial support.
