23/01/2024 | 17:44:36 Madam Chair, Unfortunately, violence has become one of the main mechanisms for implementing the plans of not only terrorist groups and authoritarian states but also democratic governments. As the UN, Council of Europe, OSCE and other international organisations lose their relevance and influence, unacceptable forms of solidarity between authoritarians and democracy appear, which are often based on a union of arms and oil. Such solidarity is limiting the right of many nations to self... 22/01/2024 | 17:39:34 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Mr President, During the last World Forum for Democracy, in this very hemicycle, a conclusion was made, that democracies tend to experience peace, but transitions to democracy do not guarantee peace. I don’t know if this was a justification for the ongoing wars and ethnic cleansing in Europe, but this logic put the post-Soviet democracies geographically at the center of the confrontation between the Western and Eastern paradigms.

First, today, the Council of Europe presents our people with a rather dangerous choice to make between a genuine democracy and authoritarianism. Such a strange choice exists due to the fact that our organisation, is loyal to the coexistence of political regimes, like in Türkiye and Azerbaijan, under our common umbrella... 10/10/2023 | 19:24:39 Thank you. Dear colleagues, Over the past decades many member states, including my own, have looked up to France as a source of best practice of good governance, human rights protection and participatory technocratic process. But let me focus on one other issue, namely the human rights dimension in the foreign policy of France. Since the late 1990s, France has been a co-chair in the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, Minsk Group, which for two decades has tried to find a...
