15/03/2022 | 10:43:32 Hello, thank you, can you hear me, yes? Thank you, President. I apologize if I'm going online. Today our Parliament is voting on the Ukraine aid decree, so I have to be here to vote. I will also go online to vote on our resolution. I believe that the decision we are making is an absolutely necessary and inevitable decision. There is no justification for what Putin has done. Russia has received no threat from Ukraine, Europe, the United States, or NATO. Russia is tearing up all the agreements... 28/01/2022 | 11:36:45 I had a connection problem.

What dialogue can we have with the Russian authorities if we build a wall and if we interrupt all our relations? We will have no influence. We will not help those in Russia who work every day to assert the rule of law, to respect human, civil and political rights, to help the... 26/01/2022 | 15:42:53 Thank you, Mr President. First of all, I would like to congratulate you: I am really happy about your election and I am convinced that we have a president who can manage our work well. Regarding the issue on the agenda, as you know, this year, as in previous years, there was a request to discuss the Russian credentials because some members of our Assembly consider that the credentials of the Russian Federation should not be accepted. Therefore, the item was put on the agenda and discussed in...
