26/01/2024 | 12:18:04 Thank you very much, Madam President, I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Piero FASSINO for the work he has done in the Monitoring Committee and now also for this report. This debate that we always have about progress, so-called progress, which is not always progress in every case, is always a kind of general debate and I would perhaps like to say at the outset that I believe that this Assembly must do even more to end the current wars. We have a terrible war in Ukraine... 25/01/2024 | 17:13:48 Thank you very much, Mr President, Madame Tsikhanouskaya, As a German Member of Parliament, I have spent a great deal of time with Belarus over the past ten years. I was also an election observer at the last election we observed, the presidential election in Belarus in 2015, and at that time we also hoped that things in Belarus would develop in a democratic direction. And I also did this out of a special German responsibility, because - and I would like to remind you again - Germany was the... 10/10/2023 | 19:37:57 Thank you very much, Mister President, I would like to start by congratulating the two Rapporteurs for this detailed report and perhaps also critical report on some points - but I think that is also the task of this periodic procedure, which we have introduced because - and I am a great believer in this - because when I started here, 12 or 13 years ago, there was this idea that there are the teachers and the students of democracy.

An example of this is the situation in northern Kosovo, where on 24 September a Kosovo police patrol was ambushed, one policeman was killed, and two were injured. At first, it looked like that was going to continue to escalate. However, it must be said that it was possible to mitigate this escalation to some extent... 09/10/2023 | 15:55:12 Thank you very much, Mister President, The view that we have when we begin this debate, at the beginning of each assembly, as a progress report, is the idea that we are making progress in terms of human rights, democracy and the rule of law, and peaceful co-existence. At the moment, we have to recognise that there is regression in many areas. In addition to the war in Ukraine – which is still raging, where there is no end in sight and no diplomatic initiatives are on the way – in recent weeks...
