Last speeches

28/01/2022 | 10:57:38 Good morning dear colleagues. I hope that I can be clearly seen and heard. Regrettably, the report we're discussing, Mr Michael Aastrup JENSEN's report, gives rise to quite a lot of questions. In principle, the Russian delegation feels that the time has long since passed when we should have moved to situation-based monitoring rather than country-based monitoring when any situation of non-compliance with the lofty standards of the Council of Europe is considered by the Monitoring Committee... 26/01/2022 | 16:49:26 Good evening, Tiny, good evening, dear colleagues.  We are talking, not just about the same issue over and over again every January, but we are hearing the same arguments and the same speeches. I mean, they are saying the same things as a year ago and two years ago. Once again, Mr Oleksii GONCHARENKO is getting excited and is trying to attack the dignity of the President of the Russian Federation. He is trying once again to compare our Assembly, as he did last year, with a dog. What kind of a... 25/01/2022 | 10:02:01 Distinguished colleagues, We are discussing an issue which has come up time and time again in this House. Mr Fourat BEN CHIKHA and Mr Christophe LACROIX have drafted some more reports, but I believe we are paying too much attention to this category of European citizens. Let me tell you a little bit about the situation in my country. The former speaker of the state Duma, Mr Sergey Naryshkin, spoke about this a number of years ago. He said, speaking here, that there are no obstacles to this... 30/09/2021 | 10:26:52 Thank you, Madam President, dear colleagues, I shall try to be brief. The situation is extremely sensitive in Afghanistan. The Taliban movement is acting as victors. Indeed it is true that they have won the war. It would be difficult to expect them to comply with all the rules and norms which existed beforehand. The previous government and the international forces which supported it have been defeated. This happened for a whole host of reasons: corruption, inefficiency of the government and a... 27/09/2021 | 15:59:51 Thank you Mr President, I am going to be speaking Russian. The last two speakers have made me change my plans for what I am going to say. And what Mr Oleksandr MEREZHKO has said is quite out of place. We constantly hear this kind of statement recently from the Ukraine delegation. It's all rubbish, it's all untrue. And with regards to what Ms Laima Liucija ANDRIKIENĖ has said vis à vis the Russian elections to our Duma, to our parliament, this is not at all in keeping with what actually...
