29/01/2020 | 19:21:42 Thank you, Mr President. It's not a question that somebody likes or dislikes somebody. It's another question, it's a question of values. So when we try to understand each other it's impossible when the other side declares that you are illegal. Who is illegal? Ukrainian delegation is illegal! Mr Piotr TOLSTOY or President Volodymyr Zelensky is illegal. So why President Putin signed some agreements with you. Second, you say that Russia is not engaged in all this aggression in Ukraine. Why is Mr Pu... 29/01/2020 | 17:44:10 Thank you, Mr President, I only can understand the feelings and senses of Mr Frank SCHWABE when he opened the Helsinki document of the Committee of Ministers and our rules and procedures. How we can unite on this? And all our discussion about this? It's not a discussion about sanctions because if a country is not a member of this organisation, it's excluded from this organisation. What sanctions can you do towards this country? It's more about how to divide the process of excluding a country and... 27/01/2020 | 15:41:50 Thank you, Mister President. I think that a serious discussion of the situation in Belarus and the situation especially with the election process shows that it's very important to analyze the main principles of the ability of our organization to have a very close and quick reaction on everything.

First of all, I want to thank Sir GALE for excellent work. On the first point of view, very easy, because it's easy to analyse all seven reports on the violation of human rights and the Russian Federation, but of course it was very complicated to understand how on such cases of violation of human rights you can allow to be the equal member of the Council of Europe for the country that did and do these violations? It's some interesting idea when you read this text, 11 first items you c... 24/06/2019 | 18:39:38 Thank you. Russia decided to withdraw their troops from occupied territories of Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine. Russia decided to withdraw all their troops and start the process of demilitarization of the Crimean Peninsula. Russia decided to free all political prisoners. Tomorrow, Russia decided to stop all agressions in Europe and all over the world. Russia decided not to violate Human rights. Russia, Russia, Russia! It's not report about Russia. It's a report only about Russia. What are the prop...
