Sappers from Latvia will be assisting Ukraine in demining and neutralizing the explosive devices.

Latvian Defense Minister Artis Pabriks announced this.

Latvia also calls on other countries to join the initiative and assist Ukraine in demining.

“We plan to send specialists to Ukraine to neutralize explosive devices in the liberated territories.

This would be an opportunity to rebuild the destroyed cities as soon as possible! I invite other countries to join us in Brussels next week!” the minister wrote on Twitter.

It was previously reported that on Friday, April 29, after a meeting of the National Defense Council, Kristian Jaani, Minister of the Interior touched upon Estonia sending the demining team.

It is expected that this light equipment will be used for rapid movement in combat zones.

The equipment is needed so that reconnaissance and anti-tank groups have the opportunity to move dynamically through difficult terrain – swamps, forests, and wetlands.
