28/01/2021 | 09:54:58 Mister President, may I first say a great thanks to the rapporteur Mr Stefan Schennach for preparing this resolution. At the same time I would also appreciate that the Monitoring Committee agrees to this draft resolution with a great majority. If you read it, the resolution text itself is very explicit. We are here together in this assembly hall because we have common values which are clear for all of us: democracy, human rights and the rule of law. The report of the resolution notes... 27/01/2021 | 19:23:30 It is as approved. Now we put that issue to the vote. The vote is open. The vote is closed. And the result. Amendment 4 is approved. We move to the overall draft resolution. Now it's the whole draft resolution we will be voting. The vote is open, please. I heard that it's not yet opened remotely so it will take a bit of time. We will wait. Now it's open also remotely. Let's wait a few seconds still. It seems to be okay. The vote is closed. And the result. The draft resolution is approved. Now... 27/01/2021 | 16:31:25 After me, Mr Petr TOLSTOI will speak on behalf of the Russian delegation. He is the head of the Russian delegation. I have a few remarks, especially for him, concerning the Navalny case. I would appreciate it if he would listen to my remarks. It is true: it's not clear who poisoned Navalny and why. That's an open question. We don't have evidence on that yet. But what is clear is that no proper investigation is being done on the case. That is very clear. Secondly, I can say that there are... 26/01/2021 | 10:59:08 Now we put the Amendment 2 to vote. The vote is open. The vote is now closed. The results will appear. Amendment 2 is rejected. Thanks a lot, we have now done the amendments and now we go to the draft resolution itself. We have to vote to the draft resolution too, we will use the same voting pattern we have already used, and now I remind you that we are voting about the whole draft resolution. The vote is now open for the draft resolution. The vote is now closed. The results, the draft... 26/01/2021 | 10:41:54 Okay, now I shall put the amendment to vote. The voting is similar to yesterday. Those who are present in the chamber hall will use the Hemicycle voting system here and members parties being remote should vote using the remote voting system. The vote in the Hemicycle and remote voting is now open. Is it open already? It is. Still a few votes were not voted yet. The vote is now closed. I call for the result – it is approved. No, sorry, sorry. We have technical problems. I see only one element...
