13/10/2023 | 10:47:16 Thank you. I want, of course, to say my big thanks to the rapporteur, Mr Pieter OMTZIGT. I think that he started a very serious theme. It's only the beginning of our discussion, because everybody understands that it's not only about Putin and about Russia. It's a broader theme. This Report is about checks and balances, and about the future of Europe and the future of the world. The end of the Russian Republic and the start of Putin's dictatorship is only one episode in the European security... 12/10/2023 | 17:03:56 Thank you very much, Madam Chairman. The best war is a war that did not happen. Everybody understands that, but it is very important to understand how and what we can do to make sure that war does not happen.

I think that the main question now that of the all people of Europe are asking is, what can we expect from the Reykjavík Summit? I think that it is very important to understand that in times when a lot of other international organisations became weaker, our organisation must have all of the possibility to become stronger than we were before. Over the last decades, from the establishment of our organisation, the whole of Europe and the whole world changed... 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...
