Latvia will send Ukraine an additional 20 vehicles confiscated from drunk drivers, local media reported on Oct. 31 citing the Latvian Ministry of Finance.

The cars will be gifted to the Poltava 1st City Hospital, a Kharkiv medical center, and the Kherson military administration.

Earlier this year, Latvian Prime Minister Krišjānis Kariņš told European Truth that “100% of Latvian society supports Ukraine, even those who drive drunk.”
