28/04/2022 | 15:44:12 Thank you. Thank you so much, Mr President. I would also like to congratulate Madam Rapporteur for this report and recommendation. The report mainly describes some of the key problems about human rights, democracy and the rule of law in member states. There is nothing actually new in the report, because almost every single issue covered in the report has already been debated several times in this very Assembly. We know, I mean, media freedoms, freedom of expression, freedom of thought... 27/01/2022 | 17:05:04 Thank you, Madam Chair. The report discusses The Observatory on History Teaching in Europe as a unique knowledge-exchange platform that seeks to use multiperspectivity – and I would like to underline this notion, which I will elaborate on later – to develop a critical understanding of the past and its relevance to the present. I very much, of course, appreciate the institution of such an Observatory and the report on it now we are discussing, these are important steps in the right direction... 27/01/2022 | 16:21:24 Thank you.

I would like to start by expressing my thanks to Mr Piero FASSINO, who put together such a delicate report on such an important issue. I mean, we have been in the Committee meetings over the last two days, and we have discussed so many issues, some of which are included in the Resolution here. Nobody, I think here in this Assembly, is saying that there are no problems in Russia and with Russia. There are all kinds of problems there. For example, just naming a few, the... 30/09/2021 | 17:45:39 Thank you Mr President, It's clear that the rapporteur has put a great deal of work into this very detailed report. The topic is a very important one as cybercrime has become a major threat that has visited many countries in recent times. We are told that the purpose of the second additional protocol to the convention on cybercrime is to provide sharper tools to investigate cybercrime and obtain justice for victims. This is all good and perhaps necessary but, of course, we must carefully...
