    Latvia Introduction - 2003
    https://theodora.com/wfb2003/latvia/latvia_introduction.html
    SOURCE: 2003 CIA WORLD FACTBOOK

      Background: After a brief period of independence between the two World Wars, Latvia was annexed by the USSR in 1940. It reestablished its independence in 1991 following the breakup of the Soviet Union. Although the last Russian troops left in 1994, the status of the Russian minority (some 30% of the population) remains of concern to Moscow. Latvia continues to revamp its economy for eventual integration into various Western European political and economic institutions and was invited to join NATO and the EU in 2002.


      NOTE: The information regarding Latvia on this page is re-published from the 2003 World Fact Book of the United States Central Intelligence Agency.
