29/09/2021 | 10:27:38 Dear colleagues, I thank you all for this timely discussion. Let me draw your attention to a few critical points that I believe should guide us as parliamentarians in further steps in this important direction. First, the global green agenda means a lot of changes: regulatory, technological, behavioural. It switches on the marathon of law-making; new regulations in all countries and developing international covenants which will support and promote new environmental standards. It is absolutely... 27/09/2021 | 19:38:30 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Today, exactly 1 year ago, on 27th September war between Armenian and Azerbaijan started.

My country, Azerbaijan, has responded to the crisis very quickly and is tackling it very well. Today's discussion on the COVID-19 passports is very timely and important. In my humble opinion the introduction of COVID-19 passports should pass through heavy and tough scrutiny as it is almost certain to have very... 22/06/2021 | 09:18:08 Dear colleagues, First of all, I thank the rapporteur for working on this extremely important subject. I would like to attract your attention to the issue of algorithmic transparency. Virtually any member of parliament in any country today must use social media. It is the largest avenue to project ideas and collect feedback from society, and in theory, social networks are a perfect tool for promotion of democracy and freedom as they allow direct and live public discussion, but are they in...
