Institute of Relations and Political Science, Vilnius University

After few years spent in Lithuania I can proudly call it my second home. Here I can feel huge support for my native Ukraine and I really appreciate it. The same could be said about the NATO ENSEC COE team, where I started my internship recently. The Center provides great opportunities to get useful knowledge and to learn how to apply it in my future work. It is indeed a pleasure for me to be a part of this international team and to contribute to the common cause.

International law studies at the Mykolas Romeris University

My name is Sergii Karasov. I am 25 years old. I am from Ukraine. In Lithuania I study International public law at Mykolas Romeris University. I graduated from Yaroslav the Wise National Law University (Kharkov, Ukraine) and received a master degree this year. As international law lawyer I understand that I help Ukraine through my work and knowledge received here at the NATO ENSEC COE.

My objectives are very clear. I want to contribute to the development of the relations between Ukraine and the Centre. I am ready to make all steps that are necessary to increase more closer cooperation between Ukraine and the Centre. The Table Top Exercise project of the Centre that I am currently working on is a good start for reaching my goals.

I am very pleased to stay in beautiful Vilnius. I hope that Ukraine and Lithuania will continue to maintain friendly relationships.

Engineering studies at the Cambrigde University, UK

I am Camelia from Romania and I am an engineering student. Although I have never been to Lithuania before, I decided to be an intern at the NATO ENSEC COE due to the many energy security issues I could get involved in here. I was delighted that apart from this I am spending my time in a beautiful country, with very interesting history and lovely people.
