Firstly, the decision to send an election observation delegation to Albania was really a right decision, even in the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic. I was observing collections in Tirana and its surroundings, it was clear from... 22/04/2021 | 13:05:32 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear Rapporteur Mr Jacques Maire, Dear Colleagues, Yesterday nearly 1,500 peaceful demonstrators have been arrested throughout Russia.
