28/01/2022 | 11:16:02 Distinguished colleagues, I hope you can all hear me. I am delighted that there are no complaints about my country's implementation of the voluntary commitments which the Russian Federation took upon itself under the Assembly resolutions and for which there is a monitoring procedure. That means that, de facto, Russia long ago implemented all of its obligations. It should therefore move to the post-monitoring dialogue stage. We are disappointed that for yet another year, there is inclusion of... 26/01/2022 | 16:31:12 Mister President, Dear colleagues, I'll start over again. Now we can sense quite a bit of a tension, and even fatigue, because of the fact that for a third year in a row now, the opening of the PACE Session is starting with the same issue initiated by certain people against one national delegation.

However, this report does not, in our view, give an objective picture of the situation. It does not give objective information about the life of Crimean Tatars, nor of changes that might have taken place after unification with Crimea. The report says nothing about the fact that major changes took place after the reunification with Russia. For example, we re-instated traditional... 28/01/2021 | 13:32:22 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Article 10 of the ECHR declares that everyone has the right to freedom of expression, the right to impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers. However, the freedom of speech and expression is violated more and more often in social networks, online mass media discrimination and blocking access to Internet platforms performed by the largest Internet companies have become more frequent.
