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.

Ms Petra STIENEN mentioned other grounds for unlawful profiling, I fully agree with you. Age, gender, or sexual identity might also be a... 28/01/2021 | 11:36:33 Thank you, Mister President.
