During the NATO PA Annual Session in Madrid 2022, he was elected as NATO PA Vice President. Previously (2022-2023), he served as Co-Chairperson of the Ukraine-NATO Interparliamentary Council (UNIC). This position allowed him to help mobilise support unwavering support for Ukraine.

In 2019, the NATO PA Bureau entrusted him with the role of Head of the NATO PA delegation for the election observation mission for the presidential elections in Ukraine. The Assembly's participation in election observation was seen as yet another demonstration of the NATO PA's commitment to strengthening cooperation with Ukraine and supporting the country's democratic transition.

In addition to his work at the NATO PA, he has experience as member of the Polish delegation to the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly (2012-2015). During the 2012 session, a Resolution he drafted on the situation in Georgia was adopted. The President of Georgia awarded him with the Order of Honour.
