Riga-Latvia: The Latvian autonomous Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate welcome refugees from Ukraine. Metropolitan-Primate Alexander of the Latvian Church stated that “it is with deep regret that we received the news of aggression and war in Ukraine. During the years of the Second World War and during the years of occupation, the inhabitants of Latvia had a chance to experience much of what has fallen to your lot today. I had to hurry to leave their homes, sometimes not even being able to take the most necessary things. Our families were also separated by a terrible misfortune – the war. We deeply understand your grief, wish to alleviate your suffering and share your grief. The Orthodox of Latvia offer you spiritual support, a friendly welcome and their sincere love”.
