Please join the Atlantic Council for an event entitled “The Frontlines of Freedom: A Conversation with the Speakers of Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine.”The countries of Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, and Ukraine stand at a crossroads. Perched between Russia and the West, they have chosen a path of economic and political reform and closer relations with the West. They face substantial challenges dealing with the systemic legacy of the Soviet period as they pursue reform, while facing Kremlin interference in their affairs and occupation of their land. Recognizing the common nature of the challenges that they face, the Speakers of the parliaments of the three nations have established a joint forum to promote cooperation and to better explain to their citizens and their allies abroad how they are addressing these challenges. At this public panel, speakers Andriy Parubiy of Ukraine, Irakli Kobakhidze of Georgia, and Andrian Candu of Moldova will describe the outcome of their visit to Washington and their vision for the future of their countries.
