Speeches since 2019

12/10/2023 | 16:46:05 Thank you. Dear colleagues, I would like to start by thanking the rapporteurs for the solid work that they have done. I would like to say that it is very good that we currently have reached the point of soul searching and having this collective wisdom to ponder upon these important topics. Of course, we failed to do that in 2019, we failed to do that in 2015, and we all failed to do that collectively in 2008 and before. The imperial ambition of Putin's Russia was evident to everyone who had... 27/04/2023 | 18:11:48 Honourable colleagues, Today is Moldova's national flag day. The flag is a symbol of national sovereignty and independence. The very sovereignty that has been trampled by the boot of Russian soldiers for more than 30 years now. The very sovereignty that Ukraine is so bravely defending while also keeping us safe. Therefore Moldovans have stood with Ukraine and will continue to do so, having welcomed the largest number of refugees per capita.

I would like to begin by thanking the rapporteurs for their excellent work, for their show of professionalism and fairness in evaluating the recent successes that Moldova has achieved. Despite the enormous suffering caused by the barbaric Russian aggression against Ukraine, but more importantly, thanks to the endless courage, determination and sacrifice of the Ukrainian people, and in light of the generous support of the international community, Moldova is... 24/06/2022 | 11:13:12 Dear colleagues, Yesterday was a historic day for the Republic of Moldova. My country was granted its candidate status in the European Union. This is, indeed, a symbolic day for many Moldovans as it is also the anniversary of Moldova's sovereignty. In times of great peril, this is a strong morale boost for our citizens. This is also a testament to the determination of the people of Moldova to live in a free democratic society. In the year that's past, the Republic of Moldova and its people... 28/06/2019 | 12:12:16 Madam President, honorable colleagues. This session has been a truly difficult one with tensions running high but these tensions pale in comparison to what my native Moldova has been going through in the last few weeks, when a government led by a shadow puppeteer accused of smuggling, human trafficking and drug trafficking, was not willing to concede power to a legitimate government that represented the will of the people, as cast in the elections of February 24th. Thankfully, thanks to the...
