25/01/2024 | 11:10:47 Thank you very much, Mr Chair, Thank you to the rapporteur for their great work. And, you know, I want to speak about culture. I think you will be surprised – we are speaking about children now – but I want to speak about culture because sometimes from you and in Europe, I hear, "Oh, we know great Russian culture, and unfortunately, we do not know much about Ukrainian culture". I just want to explain some things. I respect the cultures of all nations. I want to explain something. Do you know... 24/01/2024 | 18:00:37 Thank you very much, Mister President. It is really a very sad moment for me and I think for many of my colleagues. Nothing good is happening right now. We just need to acknowledge this and to understand this.

The topic of migration, today, at the moment when the whole world is entering the most democratic year in the history of humankind, more than two billion people in the world will vote this year, and will vote for their democratically elected governments. That is unbelievable. There will be elections throughout the whole European Union and many Council of Europe member states. I... 22/01/2024 | 16:21:24 Thank you very much. First of all, I would like to start with something I would never believe in, two years ago, that I would say: thank you, President Tiny KOX for an excellent job done. Thank you very much as well, as probably you would never have believed that you would be the President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe who finally kicked Russia out from this organisation. I would also like to congratulate president Mr Theodoros ROUSOPOULOS. I had the honour of working...
