Speeches since 2019

21/04/2021 | 18:01:30 Distinguished team of dear colleagues. As a person of medical training, indeed four year working in a psychiatric clinic, I understand everything that Ms Martine WONNER has said today. Although ableism is a relatively new term people with chronic diseases because of the fault of society have had all of their rights infringed in creating a family or bringing up children. In day to day aspects and social infrastructure they also have problems finding work. Human civilisation has done a great... 20/04/2021 | 12:35:27 Thank you President. Colleagues, I'd like to thank the rapporteur for the constructive tone and focus on strengthening the Council of Europe as a pillar of European security in the increasingly complex international situation. The significance of such political discourse is only growing. At the same time, it's important to stress that the legal system of the Council of Europe will only implement its role if it relies on a uniform application of the key element: the European Convention on... 19/04/2021 | 19:27:19 Yes. The problem of protection of national minorities is one of the most sensitive in Europe. There are cases of the oppression and suppression of the rights of minorities in many areas, such as in Ukraine. The rights of national minorities aren't respected enough. Hungarian may not be taught in Ukrainian legislation. It has been criticised by the Venice Commission. It was said that teaching could not occur in the respective mother tongue. Then the question arises of discrimination. The... 28/01/2021 | 13:28:44 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Lack of information distorts the truth. Let me focus on just one aspect of your claims - the Saturday protests. I understand that the indignation of many of you is sincere, but it is caused by not knowing the true situation. Another reason for unfounded accusations voiced with regard to Russia is that a significant number of European politicians adhere to the principle of double standards in forming their position. Let's imagine the following... 27/01/2021 | 17:19:29 Dear Colleagues, The contradictory reaction to the issue of the detention of Navalny is related to the fact that in Europe, on this situation, there is too little objective information. As you know when you don't have enough information, then you have a chance for lies to take hold. Therefore, my task here, with you is, in a calm, detailed, reasonable, and respectful way to clarify what happened. In Russia, as in other countries, those who are found guilty of lesser crimes do not necessarily... 26/01/2021 | 10:04:57 Colleagues, I really would like us to move away from emotions and get down to the facts. I think that the statistics from the last 10 years show that the number of applications to the Court have gone down three-fold and the Committee of Ministers report on execution of judgments has shown that 162 of those judgments have been withdrawn thanks to Russia's assiduous work. And certainly Russia is at the top of the list when it comes to the payment of just satisfaction, to the tune of €28,547,000... 31/01/2020 | 11:17:10 Thank you very much. Mr President, it might seem strange to you but I am indeed grateful for the word said by my colleagues from Ukraine because he spoke to us about the dissemination of fake news and I think indeed his particular presentation was a wonderful example of that dissemination. Now digital word and the penetration to every aspect of human life has been seen as a plus, an absolute blessing. Unfortunately, this was a kind of reckless and presumptuous idea in the first place because... 29/01/2020 | 19:43:42 Distinguished colleagues, It so happens that I complete the list of speakers and much has already been said before me. But I'd like to draw attention to the fact that the debate began about something which no one is talking about today. And that is the motives for challenging the credentials of the Russian delegation put forward by Mr Emanuelis ZINGERIS. Who said, almost verbatim, that Russia is going to have a referendum on international law which means that the Human Rights Court will no... 28/01/2020 | 11:14:29 Madam President. Distinguished colleagues, As regards to the report, we'd like to thank the drafters of the report for the high quality and objective work they've performed. I saw in the report no signs of a lack of respect for Polish legislation or administration of justice. We should point out that the Polish state has a genuine intention of improving the administration of justice. However, in the opinion of the Community of European Nations, the Polish legislators have chosen a mistaken... 03/10/2019 | 16:38:02 First of all, on this solemn occasion, I'd like to express my condolences. All states have to guarantee freedom, peace and liberty, of course, for all citizens. The state is the guarantor of that. What we are speaking about is not of a political nature, this is a legal issue. I think indeed that the initiator of this particular discussion mixed a number of things together that are not to be together. So, first of all, we have the protests. The protests, however, resulted in great turbulence...
