22/06/2022 | 17:07:12 Thank you, Mister Chairman. I was surprised because I thought there were still a few speakers before me. Mister Chairman, My Dear Colleagues, It has now become clear that the number of sexual violence and rapes perpetrated by Russians against Ukrainian women is increasingly documented. In addition, information on the difficulties faced by Ukrainian refugees and internally displaced persons in accessing sexual and reproductive health care in Ukraine and the neighboring and transit countries in... 15/03/2022 | 17:26:49 Thank you, Mister President.

On the other hand, I would like to greet those, in particular Ms Tamar TALIASHVILI and also Ms Nigar ARPADARAI for their positive comments, recognising that there were still things... 25/01/2022 | 09:16:59 Mr President, Dear colleagues, The joint debate that we have the opportunity to hold today offers us an exceptional opportunity to take stock of the situation of LGBTQI people in Europe and to give very concrete indications on the measures adopted to improve this situation. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my colleague Mr Fourat BEN CHIKHA – who is more than a colleague, he is a friend – for his work, which is a strong warning signal on particularly worrying phenomena that can...
