21/06/2021 | 18:09:56 Thank you, Madam President. Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to begin by warmly thanking our colleagues Mr Boriss CILEVIČS and Mr Pere LÓPEZ for the quality, precision and balance of their work as rapporteurs on a truly sensitive subject, as we know. The Council of Europe had to be aware of the fact that the Council of Europe had a responsibility to defend the values of democracy, the rule of law and human rights. In your report, Mr CILEVIČS, you focus on two specific cases: Turkey and... 22/04/2021 | 11:26:01 Thank you, Mr President. I would first like to thank all our colleagues for their useful and strong speeches, and I would also like to thank our Russian colleagues in particular for holding this debate. I note from this debate that the pressure on Russia is now extremely high. That is why I repeat that it is not a matter of dictating anything to the Russian authorities: it is a matter of them now finding ways and means to fulfil the obligations to which they and the Russian people have freely... 22/04/2021 | 10:11:37 Thank you, President.

First of all, on behalf of the entire ALDE Group, I would like to thank our colleague Mr Giórgos KATROÚNKALOS for the quality and accuracy of his report on the OECD's work on tax justice. In your report, you rightly show the deleterious impact of the race to the bottom on democracy and public finances. I would like to mention an unbearable example that you yourself cite with Mr Ángel GURRÍA: international corporate tax evasion represents a loss to individuals of... 19/04/2021 | 12:25:50 I am delighted to have the opportunity to conclude this morning on this subject. I believe that what is very important, indeed, in what our colleague Mr Aleksander POCIEJ has said, are these five important axes. What has not been addressed in the report but I would like to stress is the importance of your trips, both to Moscow and to Ankara. You did so with the agreement of all the groups. I would like to emphasise the importance of your visits to Moscow and Ankara, which you did with the...
