Events over recent months have not only thrown into sharp relief the role that Russia plays globally but also how the West should respond to it. The poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury and President Putin’s unwavering support for Bashar al-Assad’s regime following the latest chemical weapons attack in Syria have demonstrated that the responses of individual Western countries are most effective when they are coordinated with those of their allies. 

With this in mind, The Henry Jackson Society is pleased to host Congressman Mike Gallagher who will discuss, from a US perspective, the importance of Western unity in the face of Russian aggression.

Congressman Mike Gallagher represents Wisconsin’s 8th District in the U.S. House of Representatives. After leaving college, Mike joined the United States Marine Corps and served for seven years on active duty as a Counterintelligence/Human Intelligence Officer and Regional Affairs Officer for the Middle East/North Africa, eventually earning the rank of Captain. Mike also served as the lead Republican staffer for Middle East, North Africa and Counterterrorism on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.  Mike currently serves on the House Armed Services Committee, as well as the Readiness Subcommittees. He also serves on the Homeland Security Committee, where he is a member of the Counterterrorism and Intelligence (CTI) and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Subcommittees.
