Ukraine Russia War: Latvian parliament member Juris Juras has joined the fight against Russian forces in Ukraine. His party gave this information on Tuesday. Juras, 46, heads Parliament’s legal affairs committee.
“He’s in Ukraine. He’s joined the freedom fighters in Ukraine. It was his personal decision, and I fully respect that,” said Justice Minister and president of the New Conservative Party, Janice Bordens. Borden declined to provide further details for security reasons.
Ukraine has established an “international” military for foreigners, and President Volodymyr Zelensky has publicly called on people from other countries to fight shoulder to shoulder with Ukrainians to show support for his country. Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmitro Kuleba claimed on Sunday that some 20,000 international volunteers had already joined the fight against the Russian military.
