Ukraine soldiers injured in combat to be treated in Latvia

Two Ukrainians who suffered severe injuries in combat in eastern Ukraine will be treated in Latvia today, LETA reports.

The victims from Dnipropetrovsk will be placed in Pauls Stradins Clinical University Hospital and later moved to Vaivari National Rehabilitation Center in Jurmala.

The move comes after Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics agreed to treat victims during a recent visit to Ukraine.

The assistance is provided using emergency funds from the state budget. Eight Ukrainian  have already received medical treatment in Latvia so far.

In mid-April, pro Russia separatists began taking over state institutions, police buildings and other strategic facilities, such as airfields, and started setting up check points on roads., Ukrainian authorities launched a 'counter-terrorism' operation in eastern Ukraine. 

Meanwhile, the cost of the Ukraine crisis amounts to around 750 million U.S. dollars (558 million euros) Latvia's ambassador to Ukraine Argita Daudze earlier revealed.

The latest report from the United Nations on Ukraine reports that 1,129 people in Ukraine have been killed and 3,442 injured.  

On July 5, separatists were driven out of two important centers in Donbas - Sloviansk and Kramatorsk. Separatists are now building up their forces in Donetsk and Luhansk.
