The Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Riigikogu Marko Mihkelson is on a joint visit to Los Angeles, USA, with his Latvian and Lithuanian colleagues to talk about the impact of Russia’s war of aggression and to stress the importance of further support to Ukraine.

On Friday, Mihkelson and the Chairman of the Latvian Foreign Affairs Committee Rihards Kols will meet with Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles Erin Bromaghim, visit the University of Southern California, and take part in two panel discussions to talk about the price of Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine and its wider impact on the global security situation.

On Saturday, the two will be joined by their Lithuanian colleague Žygimantas Pavilionis. Over two days, the schedule of the visit includes several meetings with members of the US Congress to urge the Congress to adopt the Ukraine aid package, possibly as early as this weekend. They will also meet the Ukrainian community in Los Angeles and speak at the Baltic American Freedom League Awards Banquet.

Next Wednesday and Thursday, the Baltic Chairmen will meet again in Berlin, Germany.
