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... 23/06/2021 | 18:50:53 Distinguished colleagues, I'm glad to welcome all of you today as a representative of the Crimean Tatars from temporary occupied Ukrainian Crimea. I thank Ms Thorhildur Sunna ÆVARSDÓTTIR for her tremendous work on this resolution. I thank all my colleagues who worked on this document.

It's about... 28/01/2021 | 12:16:23 I'm grateful to rapporteur for such a complex approach to the topic of ethnic profiling. Ethnic profiling is a discriminatory practice when law enforcement officers unreasonably, purely on the grounds of religion, ethnicity, language, detain citizens, subject them to more severe checks. It was mentioned in the report about ethnical profiling performed by the Russian police targeting in particular migrants from Central Asia and Caucasus. Although, I'd like to highlight the problem of usage of... 27/01/2021 | 11:53:42 I would like to thank the speaker for their comprehensive report. I would like to point out several aspects based on it. Ukraine is deeply concerned that Russia is forcibly vaccinating Ukrainian citizens in Crimea with its "Sputnik V" vaccine. The WHO is expected to decide on the Russian vaccine "Sputnik V" only at the end of the first half of 2021. Thus, it is currently not a licensed vaccine. The report emphasises that regulatory bodies in charge of assessing and authorising vaccines...
