It makes it possible not only to monitor the implementation of obligations by countries, but also helps to improve those countries' legislation. The return points here are that they call for thematic and not country monitoring, I repeat. Otherwise, some countries will be under monitoring for ever. Secondly, monitoring should not just list problems, but also ensure that there is provision of information in the light of the real state of affairs and... 27/01/2022 | 13:13:09 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) I sincerely thank the rapporteur for his profound report and the committee for their responsible work with the document and the amendments. The report reflects the urgent aspects of our civilization's struggle against this sudden, severe challenge. The report analyzes in detail three basic directions in which humanity is trying to unfold its fight against the new coronavirus infection. The first direction is preventive measures: these include... 26/01/2022 | 18:33:05 Thank you very much.  Esteemed colleagues, first of all, allow me to inform you that the Russian delegation with regard to this particular point has a very special and particular view about this report, the preparation running up to it, the tone, is of great concern as well.  The Russian delegation will not get into a discussion following the presentation of this particular report and I simply wanted to present you a summary of our position.  The Assembly, as a respected international... 26/01/2022 | 16:36:07 Thank you. Thank you, President.  Colleagues, here at the opening of the session, we once again, have a small group of colleagues who are trying to change the way in which this Assembly is working. The arguments that they are putting forward are based on certain events that are presented in a distorted form hoping that those who are listening will think the misinformation they are providing is the truth. I will try to share the truth with you. Maybe you will understand. First of all, the... 25/01/2022 | 20:04:37 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) I’d like to thank Mrs. Engblom for her responsible study of the issue and will pay attention to paragraph 5 of the draft resolution. Unfortunately, in the modern world we increasingly come across the role of certain media as an instrument of confrontation policy. Reputable publications, channels incite militaristic hysteria. Every day we face their attempts to put pressure on society and governments with the imposition of the enemy image and... 30/09/2021 | 16:43:14 Good afternoon, distinguished colleagues. The questions raised in the report are definitely very topical. Many of the positions in it are balanced. Of particular importance in the document is the part which calls on the authorities of Lithuania, Latvia and Poland to guarantee the rights of those seeking to enter its territory. Probably it should also take into account the judgement of the European Court of Human Rights, compelling Poland and Latvia to provide food, water, clothing and medical... 29/09/2021 | 10:58:19 Good morning, distinguished colleagues,  I had to change my plans in function of the previous speeches. I should thank the previous speaker for mentioning Crimea. We should mention the fact that the Ukranian authorities closed the northern Crimean canal preventing residents from having access to water. You cannot really care about the interest of the Crimeans if you have cut them off from water, in addition to cutting off power lines. That is how much Ukraine cares about the environment.  But... 23/06/2021 | 18:35:29 Thank you very much, Madam President.  I would like to start by saying that I have enormous sympathy for all the people in Crimea and I can assure you that the authorities have been doing everything they can to help them.  Unfortunately, Ukraine has not made the slightest effort to help the people we are talking about. We understand why. They only defend the rights of people living in the Crimea with words.  If we look back over the years, films and books dating back to the Soviet times, we... 22/06/2021 | 12:23:45 Thank you President. Dear colleagues, if the introduction of the Covid-19 pass is to be organised smoothly we have to ensure that it has a solid foundation. We have to have a testing system available to all and preferably free of charge. What should this pass contain apart from individual data? Something regarding the bearer's immune system. That is to say whether they've had the disease. Also the degree of immunity should be measured. In addition it should contain information about... 22/06/2021 | 09:59:31 Thanks, Mister President.  I would like to start with a quote of part of Article 29 of the constitution of the Russian Federation. I quote, "everyone should have the right to freely look for, receive, transmit, produce and distribute information by any legal way. The list of data comprising state secrets shall be determined by a federal law."  Now why have I mentioned this? Because the concept of Mr Roberto RAMPI's report, the right to know, is very much in line with this, and it can...
