State of the Alliance: Bulgaria on Black Sea Security

October 27, 2023 at 10:00 am to 10:30 am

Event Overview

Ambassador Georgi Panayotov discusses Black Sea security and Bulgaria’s support for Ukraine.

Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine has had ripple effects across Europe. While the alliance is more unified than it has been in decades, there is no shortage of threats to its security, resilience, and cohesion, notably in the Black Sea and on the Eastern Flank. How is Bulgaria addressing these security challenges and countering ongoing threats from Russia?
Bulgarian Ambassador to the United States Georgi Panayotov sits down with Ivanna Kuz to discuss the country’s role in fostering transatlantic cooperation, energy resilience, and continued support for Ukraine. This discussion is part of CEPA’s “State of the Alliance,” a series bringing together thought leaders from Europe and North America to deliberate on the most pressing challenges facing allies and partners.
