“Ukraine can be both a member of the European Union and NATO,” Latvian President Egils Levits, who is on a visit to Baku, told APA.
"The first task for NATO now is to support Ukraine. Military support should be given to Ukraine so that this country can respond to Russian attacks. Regarding EU membership, we as Latvia have always encouraged and supported Ukraine's membership in the union. We also supported the membership of Moldova. Latvia is one of the first countries that has openly declared from the very beginning that Ukraine should be a member of the EU. "We are currently waiting for the European Commission's report on Ukraine so that after positive progress we can start negotiations with Ukraine," he said.
