28/04/2022 | 16:02:13 Thank you very much, Mr President. So, we are here this afternoon to talk about the safeguarding of democracy in Europe.

Ladies and gentlemen, A well-known French philosopher called Voltaire said: "Let us support the freedom of the press, it is the basis of all other freedoms". For more than two centuries, we have seen that media freedom and democracy travel the same path: when one deviates from it, the other is lost.
