30/09/2021 | 17:42:20 Thank you Mr Chairman, dear colleagues, I want to thank the rapporteur for a very good report on an extremely important topic, because that's the 21st century, dear colleagues; really – cyber activity, cyber attacks, and cyberwars are something which we face in our time. I just want to remind you that last week there was a statement by the EU High Representative on Foreign Policy, Mr Josep Borrell Fontelles, and I want to quote it: "Some EU Member States have observed malicious cyber... 30/09/2021 | 16:50:27 Thank you, Mister Chairman. Dear colleagues, We are discussing an extremely important issue. What we see isa weaponizing of people, weaponizing of migrants. What can be worse in human life?

One of the most important things is global warming and the greenhouse gas emissions which are responsible for this. I want to stress our attention on one topic; methane emissions. Methane is much more powerful in trapping heat than carbon dioxide. It has more than 80 times more of a global warming effect than carbon dioxide. If we're speaking about the human... 22/04/2021 | 10:49:15 In the Navalny case everything is absolutely clear. They tried to poison him, this was done at Putin's order by FSB agents. And when he miraculously survived and returned from medical treatment in Germany, he was arrested, he was thrown into prison and that was a spit in the face of the European Court of Human Rights.  Now we are here for the European Court of Human Rights to be able to work, to have judgements that are truly executed. I mean, what are we to do when a country spits in the...
