Speeches since 2019

15/03/2022 | 12:39:27 Thank you, Madam President. The skies over Europe have darkened, reminding us with dread that we are not immune to the return of the tyrannies and power grabs that have so fatally marked the history of our continent. The aggression of Vladimir Putin's Russia on the Ukrainian people is an ignominy, and it began in 2014 with the annexation of Crimea. We suspended and then reintegrated Russia, all for this. On 2 March, the rights of representation of the Russian Federation were suspended again... 26/01/2022 | 10:54:56 Thank you, Mr President. I take this opportunity to congratulate you on your election. Dear colleagues, Mr Rapporteur, Beyond the traditional economic and political issues, the governance of soccer also involves ethical and human rights issues. I would like to begin by welcoming the report by our colleague, Lord George FOULKES, which underlines the global issues of this globally popular sport, whose influence among our fellow citizens has never been so strong. In every country in the world... 21/04/2021 | 12:38:01 Thank you, Mr President.

Dear Colleagues, I would first like to highlight the work of my colleague who has just spoken on the urgent need for electoral reform in Belarus and to congratulate him on his work. Dear colleagues, We have all followed with great attention the courageous protest and peaceful resistance of the Belarusian people after the rigged presidential election last August. A protest movement in which women played a crucial role, led by the opposition candidate Svetlana... 20/04/2021 | 17:20:40 Madam President, Ladies and gentlemen, The drama of Nagorno-Karabakh is not over and will not be over as long as one citizen remains unduly imprisoned. Human rights are not abstractions. They cannot be negotiated, they cannot be manipulated, but, above all, they commit each Member State, not by mere declarations but, above all, by actions. On 9 November 2020, the tripartite agreement that was supposed to put an end to the hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh should have led, under paragraph 8, to... 09/04/2019 | 18:57:43 I start by offering thanks to the rapporteur of this excellent report. Combating sexual and sexist violence is all to do with equality and democracy. In fact, it is to do with civilisation. Sexism is what many women face daily. They have literally had to adapt and change the way they live. Since parliaments are an image of society, they too are in the same boat. National and European parliaments are supposed to be the incarnation of democracy; they should therefore be exemplary. We know from...
