20/06/2023 | 16:22:38 Thank you, Madam President. I would like to thank the rapporteur for his excellent report, and I would also like to express my deep admiration and respect for Ms Sviatlana TSIKHANOUSKAYA and for the work that you are doing, and the important work of her cabinet for the people of Belarus. As general rapporteur for the issue of political prisoners in Europe, I express my full solidarity with the 1 700 political prisoners of Belarus and I pledge to use my office to push for their release and to... 27/04/2023 | 16:15:38 Thank you, Mister President, and thank you, Madam ZELENSKA, for being with us today and for your powerful plea for justice for the children of Ukraine.
