Madison Vilnius Sister Cities Annual 2014 Banquet
Questions from the audience turned to the topic of Russian involvement in the Ukraine and the ambassador answered very frankly and gravely. This event was co-sponsored by CREECA (Center for Russia, East Europe and Central Asia), MVSC and EUCE (European Union Center of Excellence).
The next day, Saturday, May 3, the ambassador was guest of honor and speaker at the annual MVSC banquet, held in the attractive Madison Club. After a delicious banquet of Lithuanian-inspired food, the Ambassador spoke more intimately of the subjects covered in the previous day’s talk, and encouraged more interaction between Lithuanian groups in the US and Lithuania. Madison’s Lithuanian community was delighted to meet the Ambassador and look forward to a return visit.
