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.

It's also not a secret that Russian cash is unfortunately undermining Europe. Russia is interested in having a weaker Europe. I believe the Navalny case is the case... 29/01/2020 | 19:03:26 Dear friends and colleagues, I want to tell you that, whether we like it or not, this organisation, first of all, is about reminding everyone that we have a responsibility to protect the human rights situation. I want to remind you what the word impunity means. United Nations called impunity as a symptom of the breakdown of law and judicial systems. According to UNESCO, impunity damages whole societies by covering up serious human rights abuses, corruption and crime. Can we close our eyes...
