27/01/2022 | 13:13:05 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear Mr. President, Esteemed colleagues, I thank the rapporteur for his work on such an important issue. Valery Vashchuk, Ivan Bondarets, Vasyl Chernysh, Timur Shaimardanov, Seyran Zinedinov, Islam Dzhepparov, Dzhevdet Islamov, Eskender Apselyamov, Fedir Kostenko, Mukhtar Arislanov, Arlen Terekhov, Ruslan Ganiev, Arsen Ibramov, Arsen Tabrav — those are names of my compatriots — pro-Ukrainian activists who had openly opposed the Russian... 27/01/2022 | 13:05:16 Thank you, Madam President. I want to start today's speech with the remark that we are not talking about the recent challenges in security in Europe. Those issues are not recent at all. For eight years in a row, there has been an active war in the centre of Europe: Russia has attacked Ukraine, occupied its territories, Crimea and some territories of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Russia has killed more than 14 000 Ukrainian citizens and continues to legally detain almost 500 people in... 26/01/2022 | 18:44:12 Dear Mr President, Esteemed colleagues, I would like to thank the rapporteur for the introduction to the report and the work that has been done.

Just a few examples: - The homicide of Anna Politkovskaya, who was writing about crimes in 2006. - The death of... 26/01/2022 | 16:54:06 Hi everybody, Dear President, distinguished colleagues, Today I want to remind you that the Council of Europe was founded in the wake of World War II to uphold human rights, democracy, and the rule of law in Europe. None of this is present in modern Russia. Moreover the Kremlin rudely violates human rights both of its own citizens as well as citizens of other countries, particularly Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars in temporarily occupied Crimea. Last year in June, PACE adopted the resolution... 30/09/2021 | 09:57:30 Dear President, esteemed colleagues, I would like to express my gratitude to the rapporteur for the truly challenging, yet undoubtedly necessary work he has conducted on this matter. Ukrainians helped more than 700 people to leave Afghanistan, and I thank our Ministry of Defence and every service member from Ukraine and other countries who took part in the evacuation operation. But this is not the end. Unfortunately the worst might be yet to come. The EU and PACE have to involve the Committee...
