Whilst key Baltic officials are in the U.K mulling over stronger defense plans for the region, Riga's mayor Nils Usakovs is in Moscow in an effort to keep Latvian products on Russian supermarket shelves.

Usakovs hopes Russian supermarkets will bring back Latvian products after Russia imposed sanctions on Western food products amid the crisis in the Ukraine.

The EU has warned Russia it will impose more sanctions on Russia if it does not pull out troops from the east of the country, Russia has denied the claims.

Key NATO officials are in Wales to discuss stronger defense plans for the region. Baltic officials have called for permanent military bases in the region.

Meanwhile, Usakovs will meet with top Russian officials including the countries Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin and President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Sergey Katyrin among others, LETA reports.
