The annual march in honor of Waffen-SS Latvian Legion members has kicked off in Riga.

​The annual Nazi veterans' march has been harshly criticized by a number of international anti-fascist organizations as well as of governments worldwide.

Russian Foreign Ministry human rights ombudsman Konstantin Dolgov said earlier that the march, permitted by the Latvian authorities, violated international law and the principles of the Nuremberg trials.
