26/01/2024 | 11:20:34 Thank you, dear Chairman, dear colleagues, I would like to address a deeply troubling issue that demands our immediate attention: child abuse in institutions across Europe. We find ourselves confronted with a disturbing reality where vulnerable children often placed in the care of institutions face unimaginable suffering and abuse. This is a grave violation of their basic human rights, and it's our responsibility, as members of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of the Europe, to... 25/01/2024 | 17:29:54 Thank you. Dear Chairman, dear Colleagues, The democratic future of Belarus is important not only for Belarusians, but also for the whole world.

As a result, [there is... 23/06/2023 | 11:48:01 Thank you, Madam Chair. Dear Colleagues, Today, I want to address a pressing issue that hinders equality in our society – the digital divide. Access to digital technologies is crucial for public services, education, and countless opportunities. However, many individuals are excluded from these benefits, creating barriers to equality and limiting their life chances. Millions of refugees have no equal access to digital technologies and proper equipment. Even in the European Union, in the...
