Speeches since 2019

13/10/2023 | 12:15:39 Thank you Madam President. Dear colleagues, On behalf of the Committee on Social Affairs, Health and Sustainable Development, I would like to warmly congratulate the two rapporteurs, Mr Simon MOUTQUIN and Ms Diana STOICA on their excellent reports. As Mr Simon MOUTQUIN accurately points out in his report, young people's mental health and well-being are an impacted by a world faced with multiple crises and much uncertainty: a pandemic, wars and natural disasters, displacement, cost of living... 11/10/2023 | 17:37:38 Dear colleagues, Probably most of you carry your phones everywhere you go. We all improved our efficiency and connections with the outer world, but also we all enabled surveillance to an extent we have never seen before. Pegasus, this seemingly innocuous name, has a far-reaching impact on our fundamental human rights. It is a technology that can infringe upon the very essence of our right to privacy, a right enshrined in the Convention. Shall we become paranoid about the technologies that... 23/06/2023 | 10:15:25 Dear Colleagues, Back in 2021, when I submitted this draft motion, I had in mind many extrajudicial killings or attempts committed by Russia and what we could do about that. It is an issue that strikes at the very core of our values, transnational repressions orchestrated by autocratic governments. These repressions have become an alarming trend in recent years, and it is imperative that we take a stand against them. The urgency of this matter was recognised gradually when a series of attacks... 22/06/2023 | 16:50:57 Dear colleagues, let me congratulate both rapporteurs on the excellent reports. We are living through a watershed era, and the world will never be the same after 24 February 2022. Russia attempts to reshape the current international order driven by their imperial vision. The democratic world played the business card. They were naive about Russia's real plans, and all along became more dependent on the natural resources of the Russian totalitarian regime. But it keeps getting worse. Russia... 20/06/2023 | 19:53:52 Dear Colleagues, On behalf of the Committee on Social Affairs, Health and Sustainable Development, I would like to congratulate Ms Selin SAYEK BÖKE on her excellent and timely report on “Public health emergencies: the need for a holistic approach to multilateralism and healthcare”. The report comprehensively examines the ongoing processes at the international level to transform global health governance. It calls for important human rights safeguards and the need for a holistic approach to... 27/04/2023 | 19:30:25 Dear Colleagues. It's my honour to speak. [On this resolution... sorry... sorry dear colleagues, apparently it doesn't work.... excuse me.] It's my honour to speak to you today about the importance of protecting our values within economic agreements. As we all know, trade agreements are not just about economic benefits, but also about promoting and protecting certain values such as human rights, environmental protection, and sustainable development. It is crucial that we not sacrifice these... 27/04/2023 | 16:07:52 Dear Colleagues, The crime of deportation is a typical tool of Russia throughout the centuries. The Russian Empire, the USSR, or the modern Russian Federation, this country has always aimed to destroy national communities. Nowadays, with its mass-scale campaign of stealing Ukrainian children, Russia goes for its ultimate mission of destroying the Ukrainian nation to steal your Ukrainian generations. Russian authorities have interrogated, detained, and forcibly deported hundreds of thousands... 25/04/2023 | 16:55:47 Fellow colleagues, Any captured Ukrainian territory and any remaining civilians are subject not only to the murder, torture, sexual violence, and abduction of children – for which Moscow troops are notorious – but also being subsumed into the Russian orbit with its tyranny, repression, and lies. Russia is fighting not only against us, our dear colleagues. They are betting against your democracy. And if you fail to act rapidly they have their chances to succeed. In November 2022, Ukraine... 27/01/2023 | 10:16:39 Dear Rapporteur, Ddear Colleagues, Talking about autonomous weapons, countries which are victims of aggressive states may find themselves in a very vulnerable position. Russia conducts a genocidal war against Ukraine not appreciating lives of their own people. Hundreds of thousands of Russian soldiers marched to our lands, and many more are to come this year. This reckless approach leaves a more limited Ukrainian Armed Forces searching for very creative solutions, searching for assistance... 26/01/2023 | 12:59:47 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear Mr. Rapporteur, Dear colleagues, This resolution comes very timely as there is repeated ongoing missile attack in Ukraine. It is a logical step towards ensuring accountability and justice in this brutal war of aggression against Ukraine. This resolution elaborates Ukraine’s recent efforts to punish for crime of crimes – aggression – that would target Russia’s leadership responsible for the very start of the war. The Special Tribunal...
