Latvia’s Finance Minister Arvils Ašeradens has offered to amend the law and allow the free transfer to Ukraine of cars confiscated for drunk driving, Latvian news outlet Delfi quoted Ieva Jaunzeme, Director General of the State Revenue Service (VID), as saying on Feb. 7.

Latvia confiscates cars from drunk drivers, which are later sold at fairly low prices at auctions organized by the VID. Therefore, local residents have a high interest in such cars since the one who offers the highest amount can become its owner.

Since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Latvia has been actively supporting Kyiv in the humanitarian and military spheres, as well as calling on other European countries to do the same.
