26/01/2023 | 11:29:38 Mr President, dear colleagues, I want to thank the rapporteur for this excellent document because it's not only a document. It's really a new history that you started to write together with us. It's very important to have correct definitions in this history - and you did it as a rapporteur. I thank all the others who did their excellent work to have the excellent report in this minute. What kind of definitions? It's not a war in Ukraine - it's a Russian aggression against Ukraine. It's very... 23/01/2023 | 16:09:18 Thank you, Mr President. I want to thank the work of the Bureau and the Standing Committee for all this period. I think that our organisation is a real forward organisation, not only in Europe but in the whole world. As well as we were the first who excluded the Russian Federation from more organs of the Council of Europe, especially from the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, we were the first organisation that in a previous session, did everything in order to recognise the... 13/10/2022 | 12:10:06 "We have already fulfilled all our tasks for today".

So this discussion is very important not only to the Western Balkans; it's very important to the whole European Union and to all unions of European peoples. First of all, of course it's a war of civilisations. When my previous colleagues mentioned the new fascist regime of Putin in Russia... 22/06/2022 | 17:15:36 Thank you, Mister Chairman. I want to start my speech and say thank you to all of you: to politicians, to your governments, to millions of your citizens who are doing all in order to protect Ukrainians, Syrians, and a lot of other nations from the atrocities of war. The bloody dictator Putin can't even imagine that we will be so united in such circumstances. Now, when a lot of children and women in Europe find their relatives, real relatives, they never saw these people before, but they...
