31/01/2020 | 11:17:10 Thank you very much. Mr President, it might seem strange to you but I am indeed grateful for the word said by my colleagues from Ukraine because he spoke to us about the dissemination of fake news and I think indeed his particular presentation was a wonderful example of that dissemination. 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 the... 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.

I think indeed that the initiator of this particular discussion mixed a number of things together that are not to be together. So, first of all, we have the protests. The protests, however, resulted in great turbulence on t... 01/10/2019 | 11:28:23 Madame Chairperson. Ladies and gentleman, The Russian Federation supports the need to take legislative measures to defend people who have blown the whistle about corruption or infringement of human rights or the general interest. And the Russians have this in their legislation to a large extent already. Not all of these whistle-blowers occur in our country or in other countries so it is important for countries to work together on this. In the draft resolution, I think we need to say, that we exp...
