20/06/2022 | 12:48:14 Thank you Madam Chair, Dear colleagues, In April last year this Parliamentary Assembly held discussions on the urgent issue of the Armenian prisoners of war and other captives who found themselves in Azerbaijani captivity after the war. The debates were very emotional. Members of the Assembly emphasised the imperativeness of the immediate and unconditional release of all the prisoners and their repatriation, and stressed that the unlawful detention of these people constitutes a flagrant... 27/01/2022 | 18:03:38 Dear colleagues, Firstly, I would like to thank the rapporteurs, Ms Boriana ÅBERG and Mr Kimmo KILJUNEN, for their truly excellent work. This was a much-expected report since the last one was back in 2011. The report starts with high assessment of the democratic developments in Armenia since the times of the non-violent, Velvet Revolution in 2018, and notes with praise that Armenia has successfully overcome the serious political crisis caused by the consequences of the recent devastating war... 27/09/2021 | 17:20:35 Thank you, Madam Chair.

And using the opportunity, I want to respond to our... 20/04/2021 | 17:50:27 Thank you, Madam Chair. Dear colleagues, Have you ever been called dogs? Well, my fellow Armenians and I have. It was a couple of months ago when the president of Azerbaijan, Mr Aliyev, said that they chased Armenians like dogs. Have you ever been called mentally ill? My fellow Armenians and I have. It was around a week ago when the President of Azerbaijan, Mr Aliyev, publicly said that Armenian society is sick mentally and that it needs doctors. Have you ever seen religious monuments of your...
