On 1 December the Embassy of Ukraine traditionally participated in the Christmas Charity Bazaar, organized by the International Women’s Club of Riga.
This year the stand of the Embassy included a wide selection of Ukrainian national cuisine. The presentation of national cuisine has become possible due to members of families of Ukrainian diplomats and the Union of Ukrainian Communities of Latvia.
The Ukrainian stand was visited by President Raimonds Vējonis with his spouse and former President of Latvia Valdis Zatlers with the spouse, foreign diplomats and local residents. The special participant of this year’s Bazaar was a choir of the Riga Ukrainian Secondary School, who performed Ukrainian Carol of the Bells (Schedryk) and other Ukrainian Xmas song. Ukrainian sweets for sale were provided by the APholding company, the representative of the Ukrainian League of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs in Latvia. The earnings were conveyed to IWCR for charity in Latvia.
