23/06/2022 | 18:02:58 Making my voice last 5 minutes is going to be difficult! First of all, thank you for this excellent debate to the different group speakers. I think that there is a benevolence, an availability, an attention paid by everyone, which is indeed a positive sign and a message of hope that you, M. Bakyt TENTISHEV, will be able to take back to Bishkek. It is true, as M. Ahmet Ünal ÇEVİKÖZ said, that I have seen this statue of Lenin that has not, indeed, been taken down. It is one of the few countries... 23/06/2022 | 17:23:36 Dear President, Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends, We do not often speak about Kyrgyzstan in this Assembly. We will probably do so more frequently in the coming weeks and months. Kyrgyzstan, a former Soviet republic neighbouring China, is the only country in the region with a democratic culture. It is also our first and only partner for democracy in Central Asia. The granting of Partner for Democracy status was not a given in 2014, but a gamble made by our Assembly with this... 21/06/2022 | 18:33:18 Thank you, Mr President. Dear colleagues, First of all, let me thank very much our two rapporteurs, Mr Frank SCHWABE and Ms Thórhildur Sunna ÆVARSDÓTTIR. Their work, which has been constant and regular for years, is essential. Our role is first and foremost to defend those who need it most, those fighters who are there to embody our values, to embody our rules of law. And the worst thing that can happen to these prisoners of conscience, as Ms Thórhildur Sunna ÆVARSDÓTTIR said just now, is... 21/06/2022 | 10:15:17 Thank you, Mr Chairman. After the previous intervention, I must say that at least in March we had the right reaction: we decided unanimously, with a consensus of the Committee of Ministers, to exclude Russia. So, some might consider that we have done the job and that now we have to go back to, I would say, a "business as usual" situation. Yesterday, I heard members of the Committee of Ministers say: "We simply need to reassert our fundamentals and start a new cycle". I think that if we do not... 20/06/2022 | 12:21:38 Thank you, Dear President. Of course, thanks to Mr Aleksander POCIEJ for his excellent report. The context is totally marked by the appalling Russian aggression in Ukraine. From this point of view, there are many sources of concern, but there is also a source of hope. This is what was effectively decided a few days ago by the European Commission when it proposed the status of candidate for Ukraine, for Georgia and for the Republic of Moldova. I believe that, in this context, it is not our...
