21/06/2022 | 17:00:28 For security in Europe, I think that you are absolutely right. You are absolutely right to mention democratic backsliding. That was exactly the main title of my last year's Annual Report. What we can really see through the monitoring reports, you mentioned a number of our monitoring bodies, but also through other documents that in a number of our member States there is a slight backsliding in democracy. Actually, certainly some of this democratic resilience, which is, I think, part of the... 21/06/2022 | 16:55:14 Thank you very much, Ms Nicole TRISSE, for the question on what we did and thank you for mentioning once again the question of the visit to Ukraine. In fact, it was my third visit in less than a year. I went to the Crimean platform, I went there in November for an official visit and I went there, as I said before, on 9 May, for a visit to Kyiv.

So, I was pleased also that the ministers who gathered in Turin reaffirmed that civil society plays a vital role in achieving this organisation's aims. This is true also for the Russian Federation and for Belarus where national leaders have spurned them. Ms Sviatlana TSIKHANOUSKAYA... 21/06/2022 | 12:14:04 Mr President of the Parliamentary Assembly Mr Chairman of the Committee of Ministers Mr Minister, Leader of the Belarusian opposition, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Parliament, Ladies and Gentlemen, The Council of Europe was created 73 years ago in the wake of two devastating world wars and on the promise of peace. As our Statute states, this requires greater unity among our member states. Over the years, we have worked to strengthen this union through common standards of human rights...
