RIGA - Level of chauvinism and war mongering in Russia is unprecedented and must be dealt accordingly, no mistakes should be made this time, Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics (New Unity) wrote on his Twitter account today.

''We must get record straight: this is not Putin’s war against Ukraine, this is Russia’s war against Ukraine and the West, at the moment by proxy,'' the foreign minister emphasized.

Rinkevics later wrote in his Twitter account today: ''Genocide & war crimes committed against innocent civilians by the Russian troops in Bucha (Ukraine) must be met with new sanctions & increased military assistance to Ukraine.''

''Latvia will continue insisting on full EU energy sanctions against Russia & port closures,'' Rinkevics added.
