Residents of Riga gathered in the Latvian capital, Wednesday, to watch a military parade marking the 26th anniversary of the country's so-called Restoration of Independence from the USSR.
Latvian President Raimonds Vejonis attended the parade alongside other high government and military officials.
The Declaration "On the Restoration of Independence of the Republic of Latvia" was adopted by Supreme Soviet of the Latvian SSR on 4 May 1990, asserting Latvia's reemergence as an independent state from the USSR.
