21/04/2021 | 12:00:20 Hello, thank you. Thank you, Mr Andreas NICK, for your wonderful chairmanship on this most terrible question: that in the middle of Europe, we are starting to have a Soviet-type concentration camp. It is a Gulag established by [Belarusian president] Mr Alexander Lukashenko under the auspices of [Russian president] Mr Vladimir Putin. Tomorrow they will speak about how to strip part of the independence, part of the statehood, of Belarus. Now in this house, it was announced yesterday by [German... 28/01/2021 | 09:51:17 Thank you, dear Chairman, Thank you, dear Colleagues, I have been in the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly since 1993. I remember the joy of 1996 when a still democratic Russia - not the current Russia - joined our institution. I remember this same chamber, and I remember the obligations which were accepted by Russia.

From our side, I would like to point out after Mr Sergiy VLASENKO's statement that we concentrated in the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights on questions to the Venice Commission during all this year about the Russian Federation being under international law and under the influence of the European Court of Human Rights's implementation of decisions. The amendments to the Russian Constitution make us extremely... 25/01/2021 | 13:34:08 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) In 2012 Georgia did what no other country in region has ever done- change of Government through elections. But what has happened in Georgia since is nothing else than democratic backsliding and the October elections is unfortunate proof of that. Yes, the decision not to take up seats in parliament is a hard for outsiders to understand. But, complete loss of trust towards elections as a way to change government would be worse. Opposition has...
