19/06/2023 | 16:26:06 Thank you very much and thank you for mentioning, again, the Summit. Indeed, I think that was the showcase of how, when we have a substantial event with the largest-ever gathering of our leaders in the history of the Council of Europe, we also had the largest-ever coverage throughout with more than 1 000 articles on the Summit itself. So, it is clear that the more information we can provide and the more attractive work we can have, that there is coverage. Coming back to the issues that were... 19/06/2023 | 16:17:04 I hope that this moment will be there soon. We are really working on that very much, on the register of damage becoming operational very soon. It may take two to three months, but I hope that Ukrainians will be able to deposit their claims not only in The Hague, but we aim also for foreign office antennae, for an office of the register of damage in Kiev.

I can only say that for developments so far, the last one concerning the decision for Regional Court of Appeal at the end of this December that upheld the... 24/04/2023 | 16:32:23 Well, let me start with the missing persons. I cannot more than agree that in any war there are always missing persons. And I can tell you from different parts of our membership where this issue is raised, and I know how painful for the family it is. So you are right: we need to know the whereabouts for the families to rest in peace. So I can only urge that wherever –not only in the case of the war that you mentioned–  that we need to address all human rights violations during the conflict...
