The Atlantic Council’s Europe Center is delighted to invite you to a fireside chat with H.E. Margaritis Schinas, European Commission Vice-President for Promoting our European Way of Life. This event will take place virtually on Thursday, June 2 from 5:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET. The conversation will focus on transatlantic relations through the prism of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine, highlighting key aspects of the Vice-President’s portfolio such as strengthening resilience in critical sectors, cyber security, and migration.

As the Russian war in Ukraine continues into its fourth month, the European Union has been responding to both humanitarian and security crises. On the humanitarian front, the majority of the 6.6 million Ukrainian refugees are fleeing to Poland, Romania, and Hungary. At the same time, Russian cyber-attacks threaten Europe’s critical infrastructure and require mechanisms for prevention. Vice-President Schinas is joining the Council to discuss Europe’s response to these issues, their transatlantic implications, and the future of transatlantic cooperation in these areas.

This discussion will take place on Zoom and will be broadcast on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. To receive the event information, please register using the button above. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information on how to watch the event.
