31/01/2020 | 10:32:23 Mister President, thank you very much for noticing the existence of our group. Yes, I know it was the replacement and you are absolutely excused. First of all I would like to thank Mr Frithjof SCHMIDT. This is a very, very important topic. This is something which is really, really undermining our political life. Sure, a country may undermine democracy by their own actions. We can see many examples of this among European continent but here we have something even worse. This is the destabilization... 29/01/2020 | 18:34:02 Mr Speaker, Dear Andreas NICK, I want to begin by greeting you, in the place that you take here today, as far as I know, for the first time. Good luck. When I saw Mr Piotr TOLSTOY here somewhere, I knew that he has a very good command of the French language. I will therefore speak in French.

First of all, I must thank the rapporteur and somebody — who is no longer with us — who has done a great deal of work, a member from Luxembourg, Mr Cruchten, who has worked a great deal on this report. When I hear the representative of the Conservatives say "It is Poland that is being accused here", that's not true. It is the government that maintains an anti-democratic, anti-European policy and destroys the rule of law, nullifying the separation of powers. When I hea... 03/10/2019 | 12:07:16 Seventy years ago, in a destroyed-by-a-terrible war Europe, the great minds built a new order based on peace, democracy, and liberal economies. From today's perspective, the project implemented by 47 countries in Europe can be assessed as an avalanche of success. High standards of human rights pushed by the Council from the beginning have become a model for subsequent countries joining it. In the 90s, for all countries that were suffering under the occupation of the Soviet Union, after years of ...
