Zelensky holds talks with Latvia’s president and visits wounded soldiers in Lviv

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky said he met with the president of Latvia Friday on the sidelines of a conference in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv, APA reports.


“The negotiations with the president of Latvia, who today, by the way, visited Ukraine for the third time during the full-scale war, went very well,” Zelensky said in his nightly address.


“We also signed an important bilateral declaration with our Latvian counterpart. The declaration that enshrines justice at the political level. Latvia fundamentally supports the full integration of Ukraine into the European Union and NATO and will defend this position at all levels,” he added.


He thanked Ukraine’s allies and politicians who have helped the country “for understanding the price that the Ukrainian people pay for their freedom and that of all Europeans.”


In addition to meetings at the United for Justice Conference, Zelensky visited a Lviv hospital Friday, where wounded soldiers are being rehabilitated.


“I had the honor to communicate with the soldiers and present them with state awards,” he said. “I also presented awards to doctors who save the lives of our soldiers.”
