11/10/2022 | 13:07:53 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2)   Mr. President, dear colleagues, Let me start by thanking Mr. Papandreou for this important and timely report on supporting a European perspective for the Western Balkans. Peace, stability and wellbeing in the Balkans is in the interest of all of Europe. However, as the European union is strengthening its ties with all the countries in the region, it should be careful not to create a sense of unfairness with regard to Ukraine and Moldova... 23/06/2022 | 19:11:28 Madam President, Dear Colleagues, Thank you to the Rapporteur for raising this not so easy matter: the need for social media regulations.

Whatever the reason, a child is still only a child: in need of protection, care and support. I am especially pleased that Ms Mariia MEZENTSEVAs report focuses on the care and leaving care for unaccompanied migrant... 27/04/2022 | 16:56:18 Thank you, Mister Chair. Thank you to Mr Frank SCHWABE for his excellent report. The consequences of war are endless: human suffering, destruction, environmental catastrophes, and death. Preventing future wars was the reason for founding this organisation more than 70 years ago. Yet here we are. The effects of Russia’s war in Ukraine are unfolding before our very eyes. Ukraine urgently needs humanitarian assistance and aid as well as support in resolving war crimes. However, the consequences...
