31/01/2020 | 10:14:47 Thank you, Mr Chairman, Dear colleagues, especially my colleague Mr Frithjof SCHMIDT thank you for your scrupulous report. I remember my idea came about two years ago, in the Copenhagen Bureau, I suggested to have this hack democracy. We switched from paperwork, Mr Frithjof SCHMIDT, to proper news magazines to the Internet world, absolutely not prepared, and you mentioned very dangerous trends inside of our democratic societies,  and the report is extremely scrupulous about that. So we are in fa... 29/01/2020 | 19:47:08 Thank you, dear speaker, I was always in the Chamber and have been in the Chamber since 1993. So, from 1993, I remember the Russian delegation with Sergei KOVALEV, all fantastic people who were awarded with all possible world human rights. And really, in the Yeltsin time, it was position and opposition. But position and opposition disappeared, and now we have a united voice from all sides. Even today, during the Monitoring Committee, we have the Romanian delegation, they have position and opposi... 29/01/2020 | 17:16:01 Thank you, Chairman.

I'd like to say that I am astounded by the statement that has been made by the Russian Federation delegation. I think that the rapporteur, who has another 12 months left to complete his report, will finally be allowed to visit the Russian Federation, and it will be possible for me to discuss this issue with your Legal Affairs Committee. You were in fact able to join the Legal Affairs Committee that met this morning, so I hope that it will be possible, in an officia... 27/06/2019 | 17:34:50 Only very quickly, to Mr Tiny KOX about the cooperation of our committee. We tried to do that and Ms Thorhildur Sunna ÆVARSDÓTTIR, chairwoman of our committee and behind this whole team, who tried permanently to ask Russia for cooperation in the case of the murder of Boris Nemtsov. We got no results and if Mr Tiny KOX is now saying, dear colleagues, that now we will have access, we will be very happy. We we will look into our regulations. Our rapporteurs still have 12 months ahead to be a rappor...
