Speeches since 2019

13/10/2023 | 10:34:06 Thank you, dear President. Colleagues, I would like to start with statistics. We're now talking about the person who actually influenced each and every person's life in this room, outside of the hall, and in the whole world. The UN calculated that the war of aggression of Russia and Putin himself, because he planned it and executed it since 2014 against Ukraine, in 2008 against Georgia back in the days against Abkhazia and many other countries. It has influenced 1.8 billion people in 94... 12/10/2023 | 16:52:31 Yes, I'm here. Thank you, dear Chairwoman. Thank you, Ingjerd. Good afternoon, dear colleagues. I think it's extremely important to mention one of the historical moments of these two important resolutions. Today, for this fact, I am wearing a dress from the 1930s of the last century, which was made and embroidered by my great-grandmother who survived two waves of great famine, of great starvation during the Stalin regime in Ukraine in the 20th century. She raised three children, one of whom... 11/10/2023 | 19:56:37 Absolutely, dear Chairman, Thank you, thank you, dear President. Dear Madam Béatrice FRESKO-ROLFO, I would like to thank you for your tremendous work on behalf of the Committee, for the work of the Secretariat, which exhaustively helped to improve this report, and to all those, Ian and Etilda, who have submitted four Amendments, which were adopted unanimously, one of which has already been taken on board by the Ukrainian Parliament for the legislation, to rule actually for those victims to... 23/06/2023 | 12:48:26 Thank you, Madam President. What a great file to finalise our summer part-session, colleagues. This is so brilliant that we have young people, business people, people who are actually electing us to be voting for this important files, and to discuss this issue today. On behalf of the Committee, I would like to say that this file has been very properly prepared and supported by the Secretariat, supported by the Committee already in April. A funny thing just happened. My internet ran out, and I... 21/06/2023 | 18:34:36 Good afternoon, dear colleagues. Thank you, dear Chairwoman. Firstly, I would like to thank the rapporteurs for the follow-up on the migration refugee crisis that is taking us up to the next level. Colleagues, There is a new notion which has arrived recently in international law after the most massive movement of human beings since the Second World War. This new notion is "temporary relocated persons" who are of Ukrainian citizenship. The war of aggression brought them to your home states, to... 28/04/2023 | 11:22:06 Thank you, dear President. I would like to congratulate the committee and the rapporteur who is replaced today by Ms Yevheniia KRAVCHUK. All the Secretariat has been working on the numerous issues which are linked to democracy, and at the same time the absence of democracy. Sometimes the controlling functions which are linked to the media are banning freedom of speech. At the same time, in the world in which we live, we cannot distinguish what democracy is or what is happening to the roots... 27/04/2023 | 16:28:14 Thank you, dear President. Hello colleagues, we are setting up yet another historical example for the international organisations, because everything we're passing here in terms of resolutions are going further to the UN institutions, to NATO, OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, and today is yet another historical document which is at your tables. We are confirming that what has happened and what has being happening as of now in Ukraine, in the temporary occupied territories of Ukraine, in the... 26/01/2023 | 17:38:28 Thank you, dear Madam SCHOU. Dear president, colleagues, this report is extremely important even though there are not many colleagues remaining in the hall and we understand that monitoring some of the Members States during the international armed conflict is also challenging, even though the rapporteurs, the delegates from Sweden, Switzerland and Iceland, did make contacts with the Ukrainian delegation – I can reconfirm that, even though I would like to point out that the latest contacts... 26/01/2023 | 11:36:18 Dear President, Thank you very much. I would like to start my speech with a very important citation. "A true soldier does not fight for something in front of him or her which he or she fears; he or she fights for something behind him or her which he or she loves". And colleagues, As a representative of the Ukrainian delegation, I would love to tell you that it's not the infrastructure we're fighting for daily; it's not for the buildings; it's not for the roads: it's our heritage, our genetic... 25/01/2023 | 20:00:46 Yes, I think I must, dear President! Colleagues, I'd like to cheer you up with small stories as some inspiration from Ukraine. First of all, I want to congratulate all three amazing rapporteurs on their tremendous work and of course the Secretariat. This brings a new era of gender equality and women's rights - our golden rights - which are human rights of course. Who would ever think that a man would be the first, the leaders of this movement - like one person who is celebrating his birthday...
