20/04/2021 | 09:22:25 Thank you, Mister President, Can you hear me? All good. Okay, thank you very much, Mister President, Yes, this is a very important debate we are having here. I would like to start by saying that vaccination is, of course, one way out of the pandemic. We can already see in some countries where vaccination is very far advanced that the pandemic seems to have been overcome, for example in Israel or in Gibraltar. But we have a problem: the distribution of vaccines in Europe and worldwide is very... 27/01/2021 | 16:23:53 Thank you very much, Ms Chair, I will try to bring some calm back into the debate. For the Group of the European United Left, it is clear that we condemn the imprisonment of Mr Navalny, even if excessive action is being taken against protests in Russia. We believe that people who are imprisoned for political reasons should not be imprisoned, even if - as seems to be the case in Russia now - there are, as it were, formal constructions leading to their arrest. We have various cases among the... 27/01/2021 | 10:45:14 Thank you very much, Mr President, Ladies and gentlemen, First of all, I would also like to thank the rapporteur, Ms Jennifer DE TEMMERMAN. I think that this is an excellent report, which really does give a very good account of the complex debate we are having on the issue of vaccination. So congratulations, Madam DE TEMMERMAN. In my view, the debate we are having on vaccination has three dimensions, which I would like to address here. Firstly, the question of distribution, accessibility... 26/01/2021 | 18:44:15 Thank you very much, Mister President, I would like to start by thanking the rapporteur, Sir Edward LEIGH, for this report, because I think, like all the group speakers here, that it is a balanced resolution. I would simply like to remind you of the situation in which this Assembly found itself just a few years ago. It started with the resolution in April 2014, where the Assembly sanctioned the Russian members. This was then perpetuated, and we often had an escalation situation in the... 29/01/2020 | 18:48:04 Thank you very much, Mr President. I would also like to thank the rapporteur, Mr Tiny KOX, for this report, and also Mr MANIERO for his opinion on the report. Both are exactly in line with what we decided here by a large majority last June. Most of the amendments attempt, so to speak, to leave this line again, and I think it is very right that we should continue along this path. I would like to mention this again, because many things are now being addressed which do not belong here in this...
