The President of the Riigikogu Lauri Hussar is taking part in the Meeting of the Speakers of Parliaments of Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Ukraine in Białystok, Poland. The agenda includes enhancing security in Europe and continued support for Ukraine in the ongoing war of aggression by Russia.

The main focus will be on the continued support for Ukraine, and the role of the Baltic states, Poland, and Ukraine in strengthening European security. The Marshal of the Sejm of Poland Szymon Hołownia will deliver the opening address, and the Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Ruslan Stefanchuk will outline the current state of Russia’s war of aggression and the crucial needs of Ukraine. Another topic of the meeting is the common response to Russia’s increasingly intensifying hybrid and cyber attacks in the Euro-Atlantic region.

The Speakers will discuss regional security from a broader perspective as well, touching on issues of economy, energy, and infrastructure. Further items on the agenda concern cooperation between local governments and ongoing cross-border projects as well as cooperation in research and culture, and youth exchanges.

In addition to Hussar, Hołownia, and Stefanchuk, the Speaker of the Latvian Saeima Daiga Mieriņa and the Speaker of the Lithuanian Seimas Viktorija Čmilytė-Nielsen will also attend the meeting. At the conclusion of the meeting, the Speakers plan to adopt a Joint Statement.
