28/04/2022 | 12:41:35 Thank you. Chair, Dear colleagues, Family separated, people lost, children dead, parents missing, sons shot, daughters raped, E-40 highway shooting, abduction and torture of civilians in Kherson, torture chambers in Trostyanets', mass torture in Makariv, killings of civilians in Chernihiv, Bucha.

The recent migration influx to Lithuania is a... 29/09/2021 | 12:05:35 Thank you. Dear Chair, dear colleagues, Earlier, the impact of global warming was perceived as populist and unreal rhetoric but today we can clearly state that the effects of it are very much real, and very much here. I completely agree with the statements heard today; that if we need to achieve real results, we need to attract more people to the problem. Not only politicians but also people from different age groups, ethnic groups, different genders, and different regions. We need to ask...
