Border Crossings is a collaboration between EuroCircle and the Geographical Society of Philadelphia. We aim
to humanize people and places around the world through substantive presentations and conversations with those
intimate with the cultures, in a casual setting with a cash bar. So please grab a glass of wine, and enjoy our presentation.
You are cordially invited to a private talk and reception with His Excellency, Zygimantas Pavilionis,
Ambassador of the Republic of Lithuania. Tonight, you will witness history in the making, as we discuss
the growing fears of this Baltic state that it could be the next target of Putin’s aggression.
Tensions are running high in Lithuania, and global news outlets are watching the region closely.
His Excellency will give a brief presentation on the current situation in his country, then answer questions
from the audience.
