13/10/2023 | 10:51:13 Thank you. This is not much of a debate, because it seems that we all seem to agree on a few basic tenants. I would like to underline the words of Mr Serhii SOBOLIEV. This is not just about Putin, this is happening in more parts of Europe. There are more parts of Europe where dictatorships do exist and where we as an organisation of democratic nations have looked away for too long. Mr Paul GAVAN pointed to Mr Aliyev. That dictatorship even seems to run in the family. There we have the same... 13/10/2023 | 10:06:26 Dear members, Dear Chairperson, What is the essence of democracy? The essence of democracy is that every now and then you change your elected official. The most important elected official in a presidential republic is the president. Today, we are discussing two items on that, the particular item on why Mr Putin can be president in Russia for more than 30 years, and thereby flout the Russian Constitution, and more in general, why you would need to, every now and then, change your president... 12/10/2023 | 18:25:47 Thank you, Madam Chair. Can we look at what's going on here? More than 100 000 people have been driven from their homes. The complete ethnic minority in Azerbaijan is no longer living in Nagorno-Karabakh. This was exactly what we wanted to prevent when both Armenia and Azerbaijan were admitted to the Council of Europe. They promised to use only peaceful means, and now the whole minority was forced to leave. Let's not make a mistake. This way they will not return. This, we treat it today, as... 11/10/2023 | 18:19:56 Thank you dear colleagues, Thank you for the comments on this work, and also thank you for the co-operation. Let me start with Mr Koloman BRENNER because that was the most interesting speech, because he doesn't know whether he's been spied on. It's exactly that chilling effect where you know that your government is using it, but you don't know whether the government is using it against you, which is the dangerous thing of this spyware being used. If we don't realise that here, then we are in... 11/10/2023 | 17:05:47 Thank you. Imagine you have your mobile phone, and imagine someone takes it over without you noticing it. So, there is no link you have to click on. And your mobile phone turns into a spyware of your own government or another government. It can actually listen in to what you do, can use your camera and knows what you're doing, it can search all your messages and all your emails, it can look at all your pictures.
