23/06/2022 | 18:53:17 Thank you very much, Madam President. How free are we in a social media when our preferences for like, share and comment are highly influenced by the predefined opinion of the majority, or strategically defined misinformation? If we make an analogy to the philosophy of Emmanuel Kant, freedom in social media is not a true freedom, simply because it involves satisfying desires we haven't chosen in the first place. When we like something, dislike something on social media, we are not really... 21/06/2022 | 11:12:51 Thank you very much, Mister President. Dear Colleagues, I have to say that I am very disappointed with the report not being comprehensive enough. Security is a wider concept than the defence, by the way, which is not a direct mandate of the Council of Europe. In coffee breaks here in PACE we often discuss about rising energy prices, rising rising food prices, and inflation, which this report failed to mention at all. Furthermore, that today the world is already different with unpredictable... 27/04/2022 | 19:59:07 Thank you very much, Ms President.

As a matter of fact, those claims were false.  First of all, there is not an administrative unit called Nagorno-Karabakh in Azerbaijan. There is no Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. I know I may sound subjective. I know I may not sound objective but if you check the final communiqué of the Council of the European... 25/04/2022 | 17:50:28 Dear Colleagues, I would like to inform you about the meetings between Azerbaijan and Armenia initiated by the President of the European Council, Mr Charles Michel. The results of the two meetings in Brussels can be considered as positive on the whole. The first good news is that the European Union accepts the realities of the post-conflict situation. The words "Nagorno-Karabakh" and "conflict" do not appear in the final communiqué. This is natural because there is no longer a conflict; the...
