25/01/2023 | 11:19:26 Mister President, Dear Colleagues, First of all, thank you very much for the important report. Congratulations to Mr John HOWELL. The war in Ukraine is a shocking humanitarian crisis. My thoughts are with the Ukrainians and all who suffer because of war. War also has an impact on the environment, which can be seen very concretely in Ukraine. The country of huge environmental diversity is home to tens of internationally significant wetlands. All this is under threat as acts of war raise the... 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.

I am deeply saddened by the fact that 8 years after this horrendous tragedy, you have still not been able to have closure. The investigation has dragged on as a result of Russia’s failure to co‑operate in good faith with the Joint Investigation Team. The case is a horrific example of what can happen on the sidelines of conflict... 22/06/2022 | 17:57:34 Mister President, dear colleagues, First, I would like to thank the rapporteurs for these excellent rapports. UNICEF estimates that there were about 36 million migrant children in 2020 fleeing war, climate change or perhaps leaving their homes in the hope of a better future.
