23/06/2021 | 18:05:04 Thank you, Madam Chair. First of all I would like to sincerely thank the rapporteur for her tremendous job because that report is very very important for dozens of thousands of people, of Crimean Tatars who suffered from the violation of their basic human rights. I have a rhetorical question to the Assembly. What are the similarities among the Navalny case, the Russian political prisoners, the LGBT people of the North Caucasus, on the war in Georgia or illegal annexation of Crimea and the... 22/04/2021 | 11:17:38 Thank you President. Many colleagues already mentioned that we are discussing not the case of Alexei Navalny. We are discussing the question of violation of human rights and the question of the implementation of the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights. That's the issue, despite the fact that Alexei Navalny is a prominent anti-corruption activist and the opposition leader in the Russian Federation. By the way, the representatives of the Russian authority mentioned that there is... 27/01/2021 | 16:33:34 Thank you, madam chair. I would like to say that today's topic is not the topic of Mr Navalny. Let's be honest, despite the fact that Mr Navalny is a prominent corruption fighter and one of the leaders of the Russian opposition.

And that is the topic, how the Russian Federation as a state is reacting on any question which is sensitive to them. We... 26/01/2021 | 10:26:09 Thank you, Chairman. First of all I would like to thank the rapporteur for his brilliant job. For me, as a Ukrainian, it's a pity to see that my country is on the top of the list after the Russian Federation and Turkey, talking about the amount of appeals to the European Court of Human Rights. As a Ukrainian I understand that that is a result of a lack of reforms in the judiciary in my country. But we are trying to improve the situation. First of all, I would I would like to say that at the... 30/01/2020 | 10:40:32 Thank you, Mr President. I would like to start my speech quoting the UN Secretary General, António Guterres, who said that "peace remains the best protection for children's rights". Peace is the best protection of children's rights. It's a real disaster for me personally that now in the 21st century we are talking about children at war, not from the historical perspective, but because of its reality. And I will give you just one number: 420 million children are living in war or conflict zones...
