Seven wounded Ukrainian soldiers have arrived in Latvia to receive free medical treatment, LETA reports. 

The Ukrainians arrived at a Riga hospital on December 4 to receive medical treatment by Latvian specialists.

A spokesperson for Pauls Stradins Clinial University Hospital said doctors would run additional check-ups to better assess their condition.

If their condition turns out to be stable and all they require is rehabilitation, they will be transferred to the national rehabilitation center, Vaivari.

It's not the first time the Baltic states have received wounded Ukrainian soldiers. Estonia and Lithuania have both welcomed injured Ukrainian soldiers and have sent hundreds of thousands of euros of aid to the country.
