Meet our monitors
I’ve come here to show and promote the European and EU Monitoring Mission Flags
Maja Serkowska, Poland I have known from the moment I applied for the position of Monitor in EU Monitoring Mission (EUMM) Georgia, that it fits me and I fit it also!

My wish is to keep contributing to the Mission with the knowledge and skills…

I had never visited the South Caucasus before, but now I find myself in Zugdidi at the heart of it. Last October, I joined the Administrative Boundary Line (ABL) Team of Field Office Zugdidi...
Diversity is one of the strong points of the EUMM
