The Special Envoy and Coordinator for the Global Engagement Center James P. Rubin will travel from September 18 to September 21 to Chișinău, Moldova and Riga, Latvia.

At each stop, Special Envoy Rubin will meet with host-nation government officials to solidify our partnership on counter disinformation initiatives. He will also meet with civil society representatives and independent media to discuss their role in countering foreign state information manipulation. He will discuss ongoing efforts by Russia to deploy disinformation to undermine democracy and national security, how actors like the PRC amplify Kremlin disinformation, and how our nations can collectively counter threats in the information space.
