22/06/2022 | 18:06:50 Mister President, dear colleagues. In this joint debate we have three important reports in connection with the Russian aggressive warfare against Ukraine. I would like to comment on the first one. Let me thank our rapporteur, Mr Pierre-Alain FRIDEZ, for presenting a report with very specific recommendations and points of action, targeted at Ukraine itself, neighbouring countries and countries a little further afield. In fact, Mr Pierre-Alain FRIDEZ has provided us with a checklist, most... 28/04/2022 | 11:58:03 Mr President, Dear colleagues, Firstly, thank you to the rapporteur for this very important report. Secondly, after finishing this urgent debate, I hope this Assembly will be able to send a strong and unanimous message to the Russian authorities: undoubtedly, the day will come when they will be held accountable for their serious violations of international humanitarian law committed in Ukraine. Two days ago, the Norwegian Prime Minister held a new statement in Parliament about the... 25/01/2021 | 17:28:51 Mr President and dear colleagues, let me start by thanking Mr Michael Aastrup JENSEN for his report.

We should also have in mind our decision yesterday on the new joint procedure in response to serious violation by a member state of its statutory obligations. Regrettably, Sir GALE's report demonstrates that we are in need for new tools in order to get all members in compliance with human rights... 29/01/2020 | 17:02:53 Mr President, dear colleagues, In June 2018, this Assembly discussed the Nicoletti report, prepared on the background of a changing European landscape, unfortunately not to the better. On the contrary, we faced severe geo-political confrontations, even war between member states of the Council of Europe, and a growing lack of political will to respect and implement the judgements of the European Court of Human Rights, both among newer, as well as founding member states of this organisation...
