Last speeches

29/01/2020 | 19:40:27 Thank you President. I would like to say dear colleagues that we all need to depart from spite, from sanctions and double standards. Recently we met Mr Hendrik DAEMS, who is our new president. Mr Hendrik DAEMS said that the most important thing to prevent in the Council of Europe is double standards. But everything Mr Giorgi KANDELAKI has said is outright lies. Mr Sergey KISLYAK was quite right in saying, indeed, in August 2008, in a cowardly way, at night, during the Olympic truce, Tbilisi... 29/01/2020 | 17:32:37 Thank you, President,  President,  Distinguished colleagues,  I have here, in my hand, a decision taken by the Committee of Ministers on 17 May and this involved a way out of the systemic crisis that overwhelmed our organisation. Now, we know, that what happened then, was a situation which had arisen because of a completely illegitimate restriction of the rights of the delegation of the Russian Federation to participate in this Assembly. And you know what happened in this very Chamber? You... 27/01/2020 | 15:35:43 Thank you very much, President.

And I would like to answer to Mr VAREIKIS that yes, we are not a geographic society, we are an... 03/10/2019 | 16:20:41 My most heartfelt condolences with respect to the tragic events in Paris. Dear colleagues, With respect to the issue of today's debate. First of all, I would like to say to Mr Martin POLIAČIK, my Slovak colleague, that he has given a very politicised and partial picture. Russia has fulfilled all the obligations that it undertook when it joined this organisation as regards the elections of the Moscow city council. Of course, the whipping up of passions around that election was completely... 26/06/2019 | 16:50:09 Of course I'm going to speak in Russian. I would like at this point to remind you that I have served in the Assembly since 2000. All political groups together, united, in order to resolve the problems in the North Caucasus of the Russian Federation. We dealt with various issues in Russia. There was a civil war there. We helped Tadeusz IWIŃSKI, Wolfgang BEHRENDT, Frank SCHWABE and Rudolf BINDIG. These were colleagues of mine from the Socialist Group, who are not in the Assembly right now, but...
