Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) Marko Mihkelson participates in a security conference in Kiev, where the hybrid threats of today’s world and current security challenges for Ukraine will be discussed.

Mihkelson emphasised that, in the current security situation, it was very important to meet with Ukrainian colleagues in Kiev at this very moment in order to get the most objective information possible on the current situation and possible future developments. “Ukraine, as an independent democratic state, is facing the most serious threat in its history, and the international support of friends and partners is vital. Estonia supports Ukraine actively both diplomatically and by giving real defence assistance,” Mihkelson said.

During the working visit, Mihkelson will meet with Chair of the Committee on Matters of Foreign Policy and Inter-parliamentary Cooperation of the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian Parliament) Oleksandr Merezhko, Chair of the Committee on Matters of Integration of Ukraine with the European Union Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze, former President and Leader of the Opposition Petro Poroshenko, Director of Foreign Policy and European Integration Directorate General at the Administration of the President of Ukraine Ihor Zhovkva, former political prisoner Oleh Sentsov as well as with Hero of Ukraine and Member of Parliament General Mykhailo Zabrodskyi. Mihkelson will also give an interview to the Ukrainian TV channel 24.tv.
