As a person of medical training, indeed four year working in a psychiatric clinic, I understand everything that Ms Martine WONNER has said today. Although ableism is a relatively new term people with chronic diseases because of the fault of society have had all of their rights infringed in creating a family or bringing up children. In day to day aspects and social infrastructure they also have problems finding work. Human civilisation has done a great... 20/04/2021 | 12:35:27 Thank you President. Colleagues, I'd like to thank the rapporteur for the constructive tone and focus on strengthening the Council of Europe as a pillar of European security in the increasingly complex international 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. As you know when you don't have enough information, then you have a chance for lies to take hold. Therefore, my task here, with you is, in a calm, detailed, reasonable, and respectful way to clarify what happened.
