The government of Latvia on Tuesday, February 12, will consider the amendments to the law allowing armed forces of the country to use fighting ammunition during the exercise which pass outside military facilities. Delfi reports about it. The army suggests to allow firing practice in any territory if they were agreed previously with the owner of land on which there will take place exercises. The Ministry of Defence of Latvia reasons the offers with "the understanding which changed after the Ukrainian events of 2014 about safety". In the explanatory note to the bill representatives of army note that in Latvia training of soldiers of a reserve was resumed and the intensity of educational process in armed forces increased. At the same time there are not enough existing proving grounds for satisfaction of the current needs for carrying out firing practice, including service cartridges.
