25/01/2023 | 18:44:52 Dear President, dear colleagues. First of all, I would like to say thank you very much to the rapporteurs for the excellent work in this sphere. For a long time, we have discussed in the Assembly the need of tackling gender-based violence, and even completed some steps to support our citizens who became victims or to prevent citizens from becoming them. In 2021, the Covid-19 pandemic dashed our hopes of changing the situation with the ever-growing number of cases of gender-based violence... 15/03/2022 | 15:21:43 Dear colleagues, I was born and brought up in Kyiv. This city always fascinated me with its beautiful views and kind people. I spent my best student years in Kyiv. The city has always fascinated me with crowded streets and lively cafes. I was selected to serve people in Kyiv, too. This city has also fascinated me with free spirit and unspeakable courage. It changed almost 20 days ago. Early in the morning on 24 February, the war knocked on the door of my country with missiles, Russian bombs... 23/06/2021 | 17:14:08 First of all I would like to say that we highly appreciate such a fluent report and the huge work of the rapporteur.

All member States have taken exceptional measures to safeguard the international standards of human rights and the rule of law. It came as a shock for us, our citizens, and our unprepared governments. The main news is that without exceptions, we all faced it. Indeed, we lacked experience... 22/06/2021 | 19:35:02 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Not only introduced the Covid-19 pandemic new challenges for our communities but also exacerbated already existing problems. Indeed, no one could expect or predict what the world had to face in 2020. Despite current progress and technologies, the Covid-19 came as a complete surprise for our governments, freezing our lives for a moment. Now, the battle is not over yet; the aftermath is coming, needing our shared endeavours to reinforce the...
