VILNIUS – Speaker of the Seimas of Lithuania will on Monday attend the Assembly of Members of the Seimas of the Republic of Lithuania, the Sejm and Senate of the Republic of Poland, and the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in Warsaw.
Members of the three parliaments will discuss regional issues, including Russia's military buildup near Ukraine's border, the political situation in the country, as well as the ongoing illegal migration and the humanitarian crisis caused by it.
Lawmakers will issue a joint document that will highlight the three countries' shared attitude on risks posed by authoritarian countries and the need to defend democratic values, and will also voice support for Ukraine's territorial integrity.
Lawmakers will also discuss joined energy and infrastructure projects, Paulius Saudargas, a member of the Lithuanian delegation, told BNS.

Established in Kyiv in 2008, the Assembly of Members of the Seimas of the Republic of Lithuania, the Sejm and Senate of the Republic of Poland, and the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine is an advisory inter-parliamentary institution for the discussions on joint interests and projects.
