30/09/2021 | 18:01:08 President, colleagues, I, too, would like to make a few comments taking up a number of points which have already been made and also make a few comments on this report as such. What we are talking about is an area where things are moving forward very quickly indeed. In all countries we're really behind the curve when it comes to this, and that certainly would apply to this document also. International instruments as we see them should be universal. We need issues like this to be discussed at... 23/06/2021 | 18:08:27 Thank you, Madam President.  We, of course, very much desire that the rights of Tatars in Crimea be respected.

Because of the lack of a professional, legal assessment of the national legislation of various countries including the Russian Federation, we don't end up with a comparative legal analysis. I think that it's... 26/01/2021 | 12:58:50 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Work carried out by international courts is extremely vital since for many people the decisions issued by ECtHR seen as the only way of protecting their rights, provided that all domestic remedies have been exhausted. All ECtHR decisions and documents relating to ECtHR activities, must be verified and based on an accurate interpretation of existing legal norms.
