23/06/2021 | 18:01:40 Thank you, Madam President. Many years ago, in the 1990s, when I was a young activist I took part in international projects aimed at facilitating the repatriation of Crimean Tatars. Crimean Tatars were only among three peoples who were deported by Stalin in the mid 1940s and were not allowed to return under Khrushchev's rule in the mid-1950s. So Crimean Tatars started returning back only on the eve of the collapse of the Soviet Union. Other researchers predicted serious bloody conflicts... 22/06/2021 | 12:47:37 Thank you. I believe that this is exactly the type of issues which our Assembly should discuss. This is a fundamental problem.

Everybody agrees that convicted... 21/06/2021 | 17:55:36 Madam president, this report before you deals with the core principles upheld by the Council of Europe: freedom of speech and assembly of democratically elected politicians. The first question is why just Spain and Turkey? The choice of countries covered in this report was made in the motion for a resolution underlined by my mandate, not by myself. Spain and Turkey are obviously two very different countries, with different legal cultures and problems, but they have something in common: a... 22/04/2021 | 11:28:22 Thank you, Mr President. I would like to commend our rapporteur, Mr MAIRE, in particular for his tireless efforts to maintain dialogue with our Russian colleagues. And I deeply regret that this dialogue, diplomatically speaking, is far from being as constructive as we would like to. Colleagues, This is not a political issue.
