24/01/2023 | 19:21:42 Thank you very much, Mister President, Ladies and Gentlemen, We are debating the fact that there is to be a summit and also a reform of the Council of Europe. We have already seen the problem with the debate: for two hours, very, very many speakers have referred to Ukraine and rightly so. But that is not the only thing that this reform of the Council of Europe had to strive for. The Council of Europe survived the Berlin Wall, thank God, and it will survive this war, thank God. But it will... 14/10/2022 | 11:39:57 Madam President, dear colleagues, This is a crucial debate in a crucial report because it is about vaccine discrimination but it is also about mandatory vaccination and the discrimination against those who decided not to get vaccinated; to decide that "no, my body belongs to me", you know, and who were not able to go to restaurants, who were not able to take the train, who were not allowed to leave the country, who lost their jobs – "get the jab or lose your job".

Now I'm 36 and I honestly couldn't have imagined that this Cold War would get hot again, but this is the situation we are in and we can be in, and I realize that with great horror. My prayers, at the time of this horrific war of aggression, are with the many... 26/04/2022 | 11:27:23 Dear Mister President, Ladies and Gentlemen, it is very right and important that we are talking today about the relationship between the Council of Europe and the European Union – our Council of Europe, which has been defending the values of democracy, human rights, the rule of law since 1949 – and, on the other hand, the European Union, where these values are not always to be found on a large scale.
