15/03/2022 | 17:46:40 Dear colleagues, I'm trying to write my speech all this day, but I cannot. Because there is one question in my mind that is all the time. The question is: how did it happen that we all ended up here right now in the situation that we have right now? How did it all happen that it happens in my country, with my homeland? How did it happen that thousands, millions of people that love my country, and I'm one of them, many of us are forced to leave? How did it all happen that we could prevent war... 29/09/2021 | 10:55:35 Thank you, Chair. I want to refer to everyone who is in this home to ask you to think.

However, at the same time I can say that I'm very sad that in 21st century in Europe we are still having this conversation whether ethnic minorities are protected enough. Unfortunately, the reality that we have in Europe shows that there are many challenges that different ethnic minorities currently suffer, starting from access to health, COVID vaccine... 28/01/2021 | 12:50:16 Thank you so much, Well, I would like to speak in support of Roma communities and this question. Something which is particularly striking to me when reading the report is the number of times that Roma communities are specially mentioned as the victims of ethnic profiling in countries across Europe.
