24/06/2022 | 11:33:48 Thank you, Madam Chair. It used to be said that the best way of defence is attacking somebody and unfortunately trying to keep the calm situation in this Hemicycle until now. Our Azeri colleagues are trying to attack us now. I'm obliged to answer.

In any case, for many years, we deemed that we finally enjoyed peaceful and tranquil times in Europe. We did believe that due to the Second World War's tragic experience at least our generation will be secured from any armed conflict, global catastrophes and disasters. Today, everybody is alarmed.
