Event description

The leaders of the Latvian army participated in the commemoration of the 99 anniversary of the Mitau operation. In 1916, on January 11, began the offense of the Latvian Rifelmen as a part of the Imperial army in the region of Riga. The Latvians were opposed by the 8th German army. The onset of Latvian Rifelmen was unexpected for the Germans. Nevertheless, they managed not only to repulse the offensive of Latvians, but also to oust them. For Russia Mitau operation ended without any result (except the loss of 23 thousand people killed, wounded and prisoners).

Raimonds Graube
commander of the Latvian army

01:26-01:55 (Lv) It is the Holy land, where Latvian soldiers proved how non-essential equipment and weapons are. Most importantly, the soldier must have the spirit. And our soldiers have proven that they have a heroic spirit. They defended their land.
