20/06/2023 | 17:01:07 Thank you, Madam Chairman. Dear colleagues, On 9 August 2020, Belarus held presidential elections marred by numerous irregularities. The government of Mr Aleksandr Lukashenko waged a systematic campaign of repression before the vote and during the election itself. Following the vote, the results of which were strongly disputed, anti-government demonstrations were violently repressed. Observers reported numerous human rights violations in connection with the elections, which were strongly... 27/04/2023 | 17:02:19 Dear colleagues, As you may know, on March 17, the judges of the International Criminal Court took the extraordinary decision to issue arrest warrants for Russian President Vladimir Putin and Maria Lvova-Belova, his Commissioner for Children's Rights.

But Quebec would have been offered the same arrangement that England enjoyed within the European Union, which the sovereignist in me would have celebrated. The challenges facing England in the wake of Brexit seem to outweigh the benefits that were expected to flow from it... 22/06/2022 | 17:03:44 Ladies and gentlemen, rapporteurs, dear colleagues, We are holding this debate today, the day after World Refugee Day. The invasion of Ukraine by Russia has, as the report presented by the rapporteur Mr Pierre-Alain FRIDEZ reminds us, caused "the largest movement of populations since the Second World War". Although I readily acknowledge that the United Nations Refugee Agency has somewhat reduced its overall assessment of the number of Ukrainian refugees, "to better reflect recent refugee...
