28/04/2022 | 11:32:59 Excuse me. I brought it from Kyiv - I was there on 24 March, a month after the invasion. It seems without a scratch, it's intact, but thousands, millions of people are not. We see people killed, civilians killed, children shot, fleeing from hotspots, and there's Bucha, Irpin, Izyum, Mariupol – the list goes on and on. We also see mass graves and in the 21st century we see deportations. This is not the first time Moscow has committed such things as a possible genocide. It hasn't been held... 15/03/2022 | 17:30:09 Thank you, Mister President. Dear Colleagues, 24 February. If you listened closely enough you heard that the rose-coloured glasses shattered one by one. One by one politicians started talking, and they were convinced that they were having a dialogue with a dictator. Guess what? No more glasses, no more dialogue. But what was the price? Just now in the news we heard that there's a hospital taken hostage with all their staff and with all the patients in Mariupol. Thousands have been killed... 26/01/2022 | 16:27:47 Dear Mister President, Colleagues, Once more, congratulations on your election.

The Russian delegation has not had this kind of respect. Nor for the member States of the Assembly, nor for the resolutions passed by the Assembly. Nor for human rights, rule of law and for that matter, democratic elections as... 30/09/2021 | 16:25:25 Thank you, Chairman. Dear colleagues, It is a shame that sometimes all the historical knowledge and experience of the Baltics, Poles, Ukrainians who were molested for half a century and the regime of the Soviet Union is taken for granted. Sometimes this resource is greatly undervalued. So I am saying thank you to Madam rapporteur for trying to get a well-balanced report. This speech I have prepared for the Assembly is a repetition. I think that’s why we are here, so we can remind you, our... 27/01/2021 | 16:56:42 Good evening Ms Chair, Dear colleagues, Firstly, I am truly saddened about the events that took place on Monday on the vote on whether this debate should be urgent or not, but that's not the matter of the subject of this debate. This debate should not be about a certain person, or about a certain name. The debate is all about whether it is a single abuse of power in the Russian Federation or is it just becoming a norm to be detained, prosecuted, incarcerated and fully torn from the human...
