28/01/2021 | 09:15:22 Thank you, Mister Chairman. It is a big honor to speak first on behalf of the European Conservative Group on this extremely important issue. We are now discussing a very important topic. I want to thank rapporteur Mr Stefan SCHENNACH for the really great work which was done by him. But I can't understand one thing: if you read all his report, at the end it should read "not ratify credentials". It's a logical conclusion of what is written in the report. It looks very strange for me that in the... 27/01/2021 | 17:41:07 Thank you chair Dear colleagues, Now we are discussing an extremely important question about non-government organisations and now we really finally have a possibility to do something for Russian citizens. Because when we are told that let's do something for Russian citizens, giving a possibility to representatives of Russian authorities, for example, to be here without any sanctions: it's not really working for Russian citizens. When we are saying that we are doing something for Russian... 27/01/2021 | 16:19:33 Sorry. Thank you. Dear Madame President and colleagues, First of all, I would like us to see the name of our topic "The arrest and detention of Alexei Navalny", but sorry, everything began with the poisoning of Alexei Navalny, the poisoning with chemical weapons, with novichok in the 21st century.

Then, Navalny came back to... 26/01/2021 | 18:40:56 Dear colleagues, I would like just to remind all of you why this report appeared in our agenda. It was summer 2019 when the majority of you decided to take back the Russian Federation here, their delegation, without any sanctions. Any at all. After they are not fulfilling any of the resolutions that were adopted here. Absolutely any of them. And we have two years left and just let us analyze the situation. You'd said at that time "we will have a dialogue with the Russian Federation, and it... 25/01/2021 | 13:01:04 Dear colleagues, Dear chairman, You see that we had been voting on the Russian delegation credentials recently and I first would like to say thank you to everybody who supported the position of Ukrainian delegation and voted for challenging the credentials of Russian delegation. And I want to address those who didn't support this issue for the moment. Please think. Please think and understand one issue: now it is the war in the world between Russian world and civilized world. What we have...
