27/04/2022 | 16:00:33 Thank you, Chairman. First of all I would like to extend my compliments to Mr Frank SCHWABE for his excellent report. We have already been seeing for two months, when the war of aggression launched by the Russian Federation against Ukraine began, completely ignoring and flagrantly violating, the international law and its obligations. Two months in which the humanitarian, economic and security consequences are being felt in Europe and throughout the world. Two months in which the member States... 15/03/2022 | 12:00:21 Dear Colleagues, I will start by telling you a Russian proverb that we in Romania know very well, which goes like this "We will fight for peace until no stone is left upon stone".

I am pleased to find in the draft resolution references to the situation of children whose parents are working abroad, a subject which, as you know, I discussed during the work... 19/04/2021 | 18:08:28 Thank you, Mister President,   First of all I would like to congratulate her on her excellent report and, above all, on all her activity for the benefit of the Parliamentary Assembly so far. I would first like to emphasise the role of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities, which is an instrument born of the ideals of peace and freedom of the European nations, and which is extremely important for the unity of the European continent, for the creation of a democratic...
