RIGA - As Russia's war against Ukraine continues, it is becoming more clear that Russia has been committing war crimes - attacking kindergartens, hospitals, targeting humanitarian corridors, said Latvian Foreign Ministry's parliamentary secretary Zanda Kalnina-Lukasevica (New Unity) in an interview with the Latvian public radio.
The politician underscored that more and more people need assistance in Ukraine, the situation is dangerous, therefore it is important to provide emergency assistance - food and medicines - to Ukrainian people.
Looking at the future scenarios, Kalnina-Lukasevica said that the Western leaders and diplomats are working on possible solutions, there have been negotiations held with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but he pretends that he does not know what is actually happening in Ukraine.
As diplomatic negotiations have not brought any results so far, there is ongoing work on more severe sanctions.
The politician repeated that NATO is not taking over the Ukrainian air space because it would mean direct warfare against Russia, and the alliance does not want it now.
