Last speeches

23/06/2022 | 18:38:27 Thank you Chair, I would like to thank the rapporteur for this detailed and comprehensive work. It's quite a difficult job to write a report which stands for freedom of speech, and at the same time discusses controlling the misuse of this, with regard to misinformation, disinformation, malinformation, and to draw the correct line in between. An independent and pluralistic media environment is of utmost important to our democracies. The press, radio and TV agencies had their different models... 15/03/2022 | 17:59:49 Thank you, Mr President. Also special thanks to the rapporteur and my solidarity to Mr Serhii SOBOLIEV and all the Ukranian friends. Russia clearly shows that it doesn't recognise international law and UN principles, and ignores the Council of Europe. It's time for honesty and self-criticism. Today we are all together standing against Russian expansionism, and we sincerely show our solidarity to Ukraine. But what did we do when it first started in Crimea? During the annexation of Crimea... 28/01/2022 | 12:40:50 Thank you, Mr Chair. We all know George Orwell's famous dystopian 1984.

You might think it is exaggerated. I'll give you a few examples. Speaking their mother tongue is forbidden even in schools, where only Uyghurs attend. Students are monitored with microphones in classrooms. A warning is given the first time and... 25/01/2022 | 19:36:41 Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2 I congratulate Madame Annicka Engblom for her comprehensive report. An independent, free and pluralistic media environment is of utmost importance to our democracy in all times. However during the times of crisis more importantly, media should provide accurate, clear and reliable information. People are more sensitive to all kinds of information during such periods. We all tend to be more uncomfortable about uncertainties. The public demands to... 24/01/2022 | 20:07:06 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) We reached a crossroad today. If no action taken we don't have much time left. Our major mistake about climate crisis is the “bystander effect”. We believe that this problem will go away on its own or someone else will do something and this will be enough. Our consciousness accepts slow changes as normal. This is not normal! I was in Glasgow for COP26. The decisions taken there were our last chances. We are the last generation to prevent the...
