28/01/2021 | 13:28:44 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Lack of information distorts the truth. Let me focus on just one aspect of your claims - the Saturday protests. I understand that the indignation of many of you is sincere, but it is caused by not knowing the true situation. Another reason for unfounded accusations voiced with regard to Russia is that a significant number of European politicians adhere to the principle of double standards in forming their position. Let's imagine the following... 27/01/2021 | 17:19:29 Dear Colleagues, The contradictory reaction to the issue of the detention of Navalny is related to the fact that in Europe, on this situation, there is too little objective information.

Now digital word and the penetration to every aspect of human life has been seen as a plus, an absolute blessing. Unfortunately, this was a kind of reckless and presumptuous idea in the first place because... 29/01/2020 | 19:43:42 Distinguished colleagues, It so happens that I complete the list of speakers and much has already been said before me. But I'd like to draw attention to the fact that the debate began about something which no one is talking about today. And that is the motives for challenging the credentials of the Russian delegation put forward by Mr Emanuelis ZINGERIS. Who said, almost verbatim, that Russia is going to have a referendum on international law which means that the Human Rights Court will no...
