30/09/2021 | 18:05:57 Thank you, President. I hope I can nature this time with my brief intervention as a Chairman of the Reporting Committee. Yes, first I would like to express my gratitude to all those who took part in this debate and indeed Mr André GATTOLIN did make some very important points, as well as Mr Hişyar ÖZSOY and Mr Mr Constantinos EFSTATHIOU. Of course, it is a very specific issue and apparently it is not a proper format for us to discuss technicalities but this is certainly correct.

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. The need to respond to this challenge of the pandemic highlighted one of the major problems in the field of fundamental human rights that our Assembly deals with: How far European societies are prepared to go in sacrificing their human rights and individual freedoms to defend other people, to protect lives and the health of other people.
