The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) is inviting everyone to join a virtual panel discussion "NATO at the Forefront. Why Ukraine matters for Euro-Atlantic security?" that will be held on June 9, ahead of the NATO summit in Brussels.
This was said in a report posted on the UWC website.
Government officials, parliamentarians, prominent defence and foreign diplomacy experts will discuss NATO’s “Open Door” policy, challenges that the Alliance faces today in connection with the growing acts of aggression of Russia in NATO member and partner states, the gains of Ukraine on its path of reforms, the Eastern European states’ experience of NATO integration and the most important question: when will Ukraine finally get NATO Membership Action Plan?
The following participants will take part in the discussion: UWC President Paul Grod, Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Olha Stefanishyna, Head of Ukraine’s Delegation to NATO Parliamentary Assembly Yehor Cherniev, First Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Emine Dzhaparova, former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania Linas Linkevičius, former U.S. ambassador to NATO, former U.S. Special Representative Special Envoy for Ukraine Kurt Volker, and Canadian Representative to the Ukraine Defence Reform Advisory Board Jill Sinclair.
