Common values & countering disinformation: Lublin Triangle signed two documents (PHOTOS)
Ministers of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba, of Lithuania Gabrielius Landsbergis and of Poland Zbigniew Rau held the third meeting of the Lublin Triangle. Officials signed 2 documents – a Roadmap for further cooperation and a Declaration on European Heritage and Common Values.
The heads of diplomacy also adopted a Joint Action Plan to Counter Disinformation.
The roadmap defines the main areas of cooperation of the Lublin Triangle, including security, defense, energy, cyber threats, trade, culture and the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The document provides for the possibility of holding meetings of the “Lublin Triangle” at the level of heads of state and government. The parties will also cooperate within international organizations and in the development of cooperation with other partner countries.
The Declaration on European Heritage and Cultural Values recognizes the Constitution of Pylyp Orlyk as an integral part of the common cultural and legal heritage of Ukraine, Lithuania and Poland, which has largely shaped the European identity of Ukrainians, Lithuanians and Poles. The document also confirms Ukraine’s European perspective, condemns Russian aggression, the occupation of Ukrainian territories and Russia’s destructive actions in the Black Sea. It also expresses support for the “Crimean Platform” and reaffirms the parties’ intention to work closely together to de-occupy the Crimean peninsula.
The detailed action plan to combat misinformation and propaganda provides for the preparation of regular reports and the development of joint response mechanism to Russia’s destabilization campaigns, the exchange of experience and strengthening of institutional capacities to counter hybrid threats.
At the meeting, the heads of Ukrainian, Lithuanian and Polish diplomacy paid attention to security challenges in the region: Russian aggression against Ukraine, militarization of the Black Sea region, the situation in Belarus, threats of Nord Stream-2.
