Visiting NATO Headquarters

Yesterday at NATO Headquarters, delegates of the NATO PA Standing Committee met with NATO Secretary General, Mr. Jens Stoltenberg, and PA President, Mr. Gerald Connolly (USA). I said the following words in my speech:

“The 2014 sanctions were apparently not enough. If they had been, war would not be on our doorstep today. In fact Putin must have been encouraged to go on to implement his project to force upon us a new European security order, a Europe based on spheres of influence, the bain of pre war to Europe and the Cold War. Conquering Ukraine is a means to achieve this end. We must understand that Ukraine is a shield against this. As a Latvian I urge all Europeans to remember the Ancient Roman dictum: we must hang together otherwise we will hang separately!”
