Speeches since 2019

28/06/2019 | 12:27:31 Thank you Madam Chair. Dear colleagues, I want to draw attention to an issue that has stabilised,in the first place without explicit objection, but which needs to be reconsidered. Human rights, fundamental freedoms and freedom of expression are among the core values advocated by the Council of Europe. Nevertheless, the Charter, the Rule of Procedure of the Assembly, legitimise the conditions that directly limit the possibilities of expression. That i, one MP is granted permission to speak... 28/06/2019 | 11:02:14 Thank you, President. It is clear that the war in Syria is not just a war of this country. Global political intrigues, curiosity, big claims have made Syria a tragic knot. One of the greatest human tragedies is before our eyes. The unfortunate people who were killed, wounded, maimed, psychologically traumatised, lost hope for the future and created a new flood of new refugees. Nevertheless, the war in Syria is not just a disaster for some people. The pearls of ancient civilisation have been... 27/06/2019 | 15:47:57 Thank you Madam Chair. Dear colleagues, there are such topics and problems that never lose actuality and in fact it is important to do something every day related to their solution. It doesn't matter but most of the issues are related to children and it is about achieving the protection of their rights. The report around which we share views urges Member States to comply with the principles of the Convention on the rights of the child. It invites to protect children, specifically migrant... 25/06/2019 | 16:58:29 Thank you, Chair. Dear colleagues, If we compare, obviously woman's shoulders are more graceful than men's. However, in our personal life, our society we often encounter a different picture. The burden and many worries usually fall on these graceful shoulders. Women are some kind of main carry pillars in a family and in society. If we fail to protect them, the family will be shaken and the balance of society will be broken. The effect of truth grows much more when expressed with the language... 25/06/2019 | 11:06:32 Thank you, Chair. First of all, I'd like to note that false speech, full of lies and slander. Our Armenian colleagues, once again, demonstrate their real face. Dear colleagues, today when discussing this progress report, the Council of Europe is as if it is standing on the border. That was exactly 70 years ago. At that time, this organisation was coming into being and Europe, as well as the world, was on the verge of an important border. After the Second World War, another Europe and the... 24/06/2019 | 17:36:59 Thank you, Chair. Dear colleagues, if an organisation that has reached the age of 70 tries to make changes to its Charter, to its principle of operation, it is good on one hand and on the other hand it causes concern. It is good because of the internal dynamics existing in the organisation. It shows that the organisation is able to critically approach its work, seeking to become more modern and more perfect. The less pleasant thing about the issue is why a prominent organisation directly... 12/04/2019 | 12:27:58 Today I want to talk about a forgotten tragedy; it is not so old that it can be forgotten. Less than a month has passed since this disaster that shook the world. Bullets shot at peaceful Muslims worshipping in New Zealand on 15 March 2019 were fires shot at God. New Zealand is not Europe; the innocent Muslims who were murdered were not Europeans either. However, these shots were also directed at each of us, irrespective of religion and nationality, and at all member States of the Council of... 12/04/2019 | 11:33:41 The Cambridge Analytica scandal raised some important questions regarding the impact of social media in political campaigning. We are entering a phase in which electioneering loses its accountability, because we are not keeping step with what technology can do to influence the process and potentially corrupt it. A campaign in which people vote on the basis not of a national conversation, but of ads the contents of which cannot be addressed, leads to bad government. Transparency is key and is... 11/04/2019 | 16:47:39 When an essentially necessary struggle focuses not on the major issues but on the directions selected for specific purposes, the question of why that is immediately arises. In considering that “why”, it turns out that there are impure intentions behind a seemingly benevolent initiative. Corruption, organised crime and money laundering are like a worm that infests a public tree and eats it from the inside. Unfortunately, this disease has spread on a huge scale in the past half century... 09/04/2019 | 16:39:31 Efforts to establish a more comfortable and liveable European house, in which respect for human rights will be fully ensured and there is a guarantee that the rule of law will be maintained in all areas, do not appear to be new. Debates on these issues and the preparation of various related projects have been going on intensively for more than half a century. However, recently these efforts have intensified and become more focused. In my opinion, the main reasons for this are the continued...
