26/06/2019 | 16:30:34 I wanted to spend this time to remind you also of some lessons from history. But I don't think that it is a case. I wanted to remind you of the words of Mr Chamberlain in 1938, when he was trying to explain to the citizens why their country allowed Hitler to occupy the Sudetenland. He said that it was going to bring peace to a generation but it didn't bring peace, it brought war. I should better spend my time to one more time remind you of some names –Bekirov, Sentsov, Hryb , Karpyuk, Klykh... 24/06/2019 | 17:14:22 Merci, Madame Président. All of this reminds me of the story –I know maybe all of you know this– Oscar Wilde's The Nightingale and the Rose. I will just remind you: the nightingale felt pain for the boy who was suffering from unexpected love and decided to help him to find a red rose. There weren't any red roses in the garden, just white roses and she performed a suicidal act while sinking with his heart on the thorn, giving her heart's blood to a white rose which turns into a beautiful red... 10/04/2019 | 17:47:23 I remember when I first entered this Chamber. It was six years ago, and I was not an MP at the time; I did not dream that I would become an MP or a delegate from my country. I sat where Ms Stella KYRIAKIDES is now sitting, and I was a participant in the World Forum for Democracy. It was hugely inspirational to come here and feel the energy of this Organisation. That is why I committed to follow everything that happens in the Assembly, and I am working hard to make it better and to follow its... 23/01/2019 | 10:11:13 First, I pay tribute to the rapporteur and thank the vice-chairman of the committee, who presented the report. This co-operation was extremely important because I think it was the first time that two committees have approved all amendments unanimously, so I thank you for the great co-operation. The report addresses the problem of the technological shift that has created the new tools of social media and online media. Of course, that has had a tremendous impact on democratic institutions, the... 22/01/2019 | 19:49:05 The Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights adopted Mr Gutiérrez’s report just last December. I will be brief, because our chairperson perfectly presented the report in more detail on behalf of the rapporteur. In a nutshell, the committee considers that the 1990 Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam, while not legally binding, has symbolic value and political significance for human rights policy under Islam. However, the declaration fails to reconcile Islam with universal human...
