And, on behalf of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) I would like to touch upon the issue regarding Russia's decision to close down the oldest NGO in that country: Memorial.

That was actually good advice to refresh the browser. So thank you for that, Chair, and thank you so much for all the comments that have been raised by our colleagues.
