Last speeches

22/04/2021 | 11:10:35 Thank you, President. Dear colleagues, The world is suffocating in the grip of the coronavirus. On a daily basis hundreds of thousands of children and women are victims of domestic violence in Europe. And we have hundreds of Armenian prisoners of war in prisons of Azerbaijan. And yet the number one urgent problem for us is Alexei Navalny. Yes, of course I'm in favour of respect for human rights. I would like for everyone to have the right to express and freely exercise her or his political... 20/04/2021 | 11:40:57 Dear Colleagues, We are discussing a very important report, the strategic priorities of our institution. In recent years, the Council of Europe and our Assembly have undergone very strange transformations in the determination of their priorities. I find it disconcerting, to say the least, that the Council of Europe, which seems to have become an anti-Russian club, has chosen the number one Russian opposition figure, Navalny, in all its latest agendas. And yet, what is happening in the 21st... 19/04/2021 | 18:41:46 Thank you.

I will address our... 28/01/2021 | 12:34:33 Dear colleagues, In our Assembly we have often discussed the issues of ethnic profiling, ethnic cleansing and ethnic protection. Since our Assembly, for reasons cannot fathom, has considered the Navalny issue more important than the humanitarian crisis of the recent Artsakh war, or the issue of prisoners of war, then I am obliged to return to the humanitarian consequences of that war and to the Azerbaijani programmes for the expulsion of Armenians from Artsakh. The European Union has called... 25/01/2021 | 18:04:32 I will not talk about the defeat of the Armenian side in the last Artsakh war. We will discuss it in our country and all the verdicts will be heard there. Today, I would like to talk about the humanitarian crisis that is the result of an unprecedented war provoked by Azerbaijan, with the direct involvement of Turkey, one of NATO's largest armies, as well as international terrorist groups. Azerbaijan has launched an unprecedented war with the use of chemical weapons prohibited by all...
