26/06/2019 | 16:46:47 So, now I'm well aware why the celebration of the 70th anniversary was cancelled because there's nothing to celebrate. It's another one, here, the celebration of hypocrisy instead of democracy, political expediency instead of the Rule of law and changing the rules during the game instead of Human rights. I cannot explain the reason of refusal to respect the principles of this organisation. What is it? Fear of an aggressor? Or national interest?

You know what the Russian Federation did, but I would like to focus on two connected matters. The first is... 10/04/2019 | 11:04:58 The post-truth society – we have heard that defined many times – is based more on emotions than rational thinking. In good soil, the bright emotion of hate grows very fast. The best way to spread hatred throughout society is through social media. The response to fake news and fake information is emotion, which blocks out your rational thinking; that is the best way of bringing about hate in all levels of society. I underscore the point that the owners and management of social networks have a... 24/01/2019 | 10:51:36 I thank the rapporteur for his work. Last November the Russian Federation resorted to open military aggression against Ukraine in international waters in the Black Sea, shelling Ukrainian Navy vessels that were trying to pass through the Kerch Strait on the way to the Ukrainian port of Mariupol on the Sea of Azov, in full accordance with the bilateral agreements of 2003 and the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. Concealing themselves under other flags, as they do in Donbass...
