It is worth to mention that, according to Kirt, the head of the Military School, it is very important to maintain cooperation between countries, which have always been torn between Western empires and Eastern hordes:

«Both Ukrainians and Baltic nations must create a powerful military and economic alliance, successor of the Great Lithuanian Commonwealth, the cornerstone of our security and independence. This meeting has demonstrated that Latvia is our brother country, that Latvians are not indifferent to the fate of Ukrainian people and statehood. We are very pleased to meet the Ukrainian diaspora in Latvia. We will keep a close cooperation with Latvian Armed Force, which can assure security and protection of our states.”
