24/06/2021 | 16:45:18 Thank you, Mister Vice-President. This report is particularly important — essential, I would say — and its observation is clear and without appeal. We are certainly a little too inclined to believe that this has happened, that living well together has become the rule overall. Our society would testify on a daily basis to the values to which it claims — respect, tolerance, fraternity — and yet, sometimes, the awakening can be very brutal. This important and essential report, I repeat, is a... 24/06/2021 | 11:16:30 Thank you, Mister President. Ladies and gentlemen, dear colleagues, The Committee on Migration, Refugees and Displaced Persons took the initiative for this current affairs debate after its ad hoc sub-committee returned from a fact-finding visit to Greece last May, on the situation of refugees and migrants on the island of Lesbos following the destruction by fire of the Mória camp.

I have just heard our Russian colleague, Mr Yury OLEINIKOV, explain to us that there is no problem: move along, there is nothing to see. That the Russian Federation was a country that respected human rights. I got to know this issue in a modest way about three years ago with my Swiss colleague, Mr Manuel TORNARE, who was in charge of this issue before Ms Thorhildur Sunna ÆVARSDÓTTIR, and he explained the situation to me a little. I'm fairly sure I can believe what... 22/06/2021 | 17:22:15 Vice-President, Ladies and Gentlemen, dear colleagues, History has taught us that pandemics, in addition to causing mass deaths and fear, have always brought chaos, social unrest, often political upheaval, even revolution, and always socio-economic instability. So how can we therefore be surprised, then, by the significant impact of Covid-19 on our lives in terms of the way in which we have been living for the past year?
