Samantha Power visits GLOBSEC


Earlier this week, GLOBSEC organized a closeddoor discussion titled “Fighting Disinformation on Frontlines of War: How to Strengthen Slovak Resilience” that was attended by Ms Samantha J Power, current Administrator of USAID, a former US Ambassador to UN, 2013 – 2017, and a Pulitzer Prize winning author.

Members of the American Embassy in Slovakia, including Ambassador Brink, were also in attendance. During her meeting at GLOBSEC, civil society members and experts discussed how the Kremlin weaponizes disinformation to hide the truth of Russia’s war and how to respond against this threat.

In addition to her meeting at GLOBSEC, Ms Power met with the Slovak President, Zuzana Caputova, Minister of Foreign and European Affairs, Ivan Korcok, and visited a welcome center for Ukrainian refugees in Bratislava.
