30/01/2020 | 12:18:45 Thank you very much, Mr Chairman. Soviet Union really was an evil empire. And probably the half-life of Soviet Union is even longer than a Chernobyl nuclear rest. Similar situation in all Soviet countries. The same problem. Same problems for media opposition. Our Armenian colleagues now accusing Azerbaijan. Just a couple of days ago the Armenian police attacked the house of the chairman of the Constitutional Court. A lot of problems, but we here in Council of Europe always discussing about... 29/01/2020 | 10:44:43 Thank you very much. One of the biggest achievements of civilization is a model of secular state. It means that all citizens have equal right and religious out of state policy, but, at the same time, religion is free. My country became the first secular state in the Eastern part of the world, and we have traditions which are a little bit different than in Europe. What we have in Europe? Tolerance. It means that I don't like you but I'm patient in behavior with you. Our tradition is based on... 26/06/2019 | 18:54:25 Thank you, Madam Chair.

It is really easy to investigate small countries, such as the Republic of Moldova, Azerbaijan and Estonia, and to focus attention on post-Soviet banks in the Baltic States, but we have information about huge problems in Europe. Frankly, we are dealing with a Euro-laundromat. Ms de Bruijn-Wezeman mentioned a Dutch bank... 22/01/2019 | 18:49:17 One of the biggest achievements of civilisation is the model of the secular State. Such a State has a separation of religion from the State system and, sometimes, from politics. We think that is a great achievement, and I am proud that 100 years ago, my country became the first secular State in the Islamic world. The most important thing in a secular State is women’s rights. One hundred years ago, we gave voting rights to women and the first lady was elected to parliament in the Islamic world...
