Latvia: Statistics office publishes list of firms trading with Russia, Belarus

Latvia’s Central Statistical Bureau (CSB) has released a list of Latvian companies that continue to export to Russia and Belarus, LETA reports. Economy Minister Ilze Indriksone instructed CSB to publish the list, which includes nearly 1,000 companies. The most common goods exported from Latvia to Russia include food products, alcoholic beverages, chemicals, medical products, machinery, electrical equipment, and textile products. CSB stressed that being on the list does not indicate that a company was in breach of EU sanctions. Indriksone asked CSB to update the list monthly.
