The NATO Parliamentary Assembly concluded its Spring Session originally due to take place in Kyiv.

Lithuania’s willingness to accommodate the session at such short notice allowed more than 400 parliamentarians and observers to meet in Vilnius and exchange directly with Ukrainian parliamentarians & officials at a critical moment. The Assembly called for continued Allied unity and resolve in helping Ukraine defend itself, increasing the cost for Russia of its brutal and senseless war, condemning its crimes, assisting victims and helping Ukraine’s reconstruction.

The Assembly also endorsed the creation of a special fund to support Ukraine’s democratic institutions.

Allied legislators urged the NATO Summit in Madrid to significantly strengthen and adapt the Alliance’s deterrence and defense in response to Russia’s war, to place shared democratic values at the heart of NATO’s next Strategic Concept and establish a Center for Democratic Resilience at NATO Headquarters.

The Speakers of Finland & Sweden's parliaments addressed the Assembly about their NATO membership bids.

During Monday’s plenary, the Assembly adopted two resolutions by NATO PA President, Congressman Gerald E. Connolly, and Michal Szczerba,  co-chair of the  Ukraine-NATO Interparliamentary Council (UNIC) , calling for further support for Ukraine and long-term NATO adaptation to counter Russian's threat. 

Vilnius playing host to the Assembly a third time has been a powerful symbol of Lithuania’s ongoing commitment to the Alliance and to our Assembly.
