22/04/2021 | 11:45:23 Thank you very much, Madam President, Ladies and gentlemen, We only have important debates here, of course, but we now have the second debate this morning which, in the end, touches the very foundations of this organisation. We have the topical and urgent debate – and I would like to thank the two rapporteurs for their tireless work and for the fact that they have to submit reports here all the time. What some of my Turkish colleagues, at any rate, regard as unfair is that Turkey is always on... 22/04/2021 | 10:22:54 Mister President, Ladies and Gentlemen, I want to address my colleagues from Russia directly. Whatever we think about the geopolitical situation of the last 30 years – and I can understand some disappointments, also on the Russian side, about the geopolitical developments – you yourself committed, in 1996 with Russia's accession, to upholding human rights, the human rights of 144, 145 Russians. That is, so to speak, the promise that you made to the people of Russia with this signature... 28/01/2021 | 09:21:49 Mr President, Ladies and gentlemen, I will continue in German.

And I want to stress this again, because it was also the subject of yesterday's debate here: despite all the difficulties, all the upset... 27/01/2021 | 16:26:58 Thank you very much, Madam Chair, I would like to thank Mr Jacques MAIRE for his introduction to the report and all those who are concerned with the difficult human rights situation in Russia. I think it has become clear, and I think that Jacques MAIRE has made this very clear, that it is much better if we deal with these substantive issues and do not spend all our time here with procedural questions. It is also not good if we insult each other, that makes no sense and it also makes no sense... 26/01/2021 | 18:17:44 Mister President, Ladies and gentlemen, What we are doing today - as has indeed just become clear - is actually, so to speak, finalising what we have discussed with each other for a long time, what has really taken many hours, days and nights to develop over the last few years. I almost said that the Secretary General of the Assembly has grown a few more grey hairs, but he already has a lot of grey hair.
