29/01/2020 | 17:38:46 Thank you, Mr Chairman. We are talking about the complementary joint procedure. I have to say to Mr Frank SCHWABE my congratulations. It's a very nice paper, a very nice document. It's really the masterpiece of manipulation of different legal things. So we created really a very nice thing, a very nice mechanism. We are all saying it will be very much applicable for the future but I have doubts. I think it will never work. It will never work for two reasons. One reason because it's too complicate... 27/01/2020 | 15:22:43 Thank you, Mister Chairman. I would like to start from the sheet of paper, the written observation of early parliamentary elections in Belarus. I think there is a mistake, they had to be the word parliamentary "selection" in Belarus. Because, really, we are not observing who is elected, but what the election commission selects before you can elect. So, probably, we cannot speak about the freedom of election, that's one. The second thing. With time I was not observing these elections, I have to s... 03/10/2019 | 20:19:43 Thank you, all the people who participated in the discussion. We have some conclusions from that discussion. I would like to list some key words, which are very important to understand Moldova as a country and to understand the report we prepared.

Why are we talking, and talking, and talking about Russia and the problems about Russian democracy? The answer is simple. Because we are an institution of democracy. I have to remind you that today we have a very interesting holiday. It is the day of the unification of Germany. If you don't remember, I'll remind you. Some decades ago, Germany was united. When I was a child at school, I asked why Germany had two count... 02/10/2019 | 20:02:25 Thank you. Thank you Madam Chairperson. I would like to start with the history. More than 100 years ago, at the beginning of 20th century Europe spoke about the so-called Macedonian question. It was a very serious thing as we remember from the historic handbook the solution of the Macedonian question was not simple. Someone tried to solve the Macedonian question by war, by division, by the creation of Yugoslavia, by many means. But no means were very successful. Now at the end of the 20th centur...
