Ukrainians fleeing the war to be provided basic assistance until the end of the year

(16.06.2022.)

On Thursday, 16 June, the Saeima supported in the final reading urgent amendments to the Law on Assistance to Ukrainian Civilians that posit that basic assistance is to be provided to Ukrainian people fleeing the war until the end of the year.

The amendments stipulate that the basic assistance—accommodation and meals—will be provided by the state not longer than until 31 December of this year.

The amendments envisage the provision of accommodation to all Ukrainian civilians for up to 120 days, regardless of when the person arrived in Latvia in the period from 24 February of this year.

In certain cases, the person will receive accommodation support or the person providing the accommodation will receive the relevant remuneration even after the 120-day period, but not longer than until the end of this year.

The amendments to the Law on Assistance to Ukrainian Civilians will come into force on the day after their promulgation.
