26 March 2023: Latvia

Latvia, which was formerly a part of the Soviet Union, has been sending cars that have been seized from drunk drivers to help the military effort in Ukraine. The country is working with the NGO Twitter Convoy. Officials in Latvia said the drink-and-drive seized vehicles will be in better hands there and used for logistics. The vehicles sent from Latvia are said to be offered for use for war supplies and medical transport. Announcing the transfer of the vehicles to Ukraine, the head of the charity, Renys Poznakas, said the vehicles would be in good hands in Ukraine. The first batch of vehicles from Latvia was sent to Ukraine at the end of March. They will be given to a hospital of a Ukrainian army unit in Vinnytsia and a medical association in Kupyansk.
