French MP: I am a little surprised at the dismissal from the post at the PACE because of the trip to Crimea

30
French MP Tieri Mariani, who led a delegation of French deputies who visited the Crimea peninsula in July, said he was a little surprised by his removal from the PACE post, as well as from the vice-president of the European People’s Party "at the request of the Ukrainian delegation."




“I can say that I am a little surprised, because, it seems to me, (that to make such a decision) five months later is a bit strange. Secondly, I would say that I find it absolutely stupid and absolutely counterproductive, the only response is that it makes me come faster (to the Crimea), ”the newspaper quoted him as saying "Sight".

The parliamentarian noted that “he was very surprised, as in usual conditions the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe should serve as a place of dialogue, and not a place where, I would say, sentences are passed.”

“But I note that in reality, if we have a different point of view, then immediately we are convicted. This is not what I expect from the assembly, which calls itself "democratic", but it's not scary, ”added Mariani.

In addition, in his opinion, the European authorities do not have enough independence from the influence of the “big neighbor on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean,” so now, against the background of sanctions and the lack of dialogue with Moscow, the European Union is moving further away from Russia.

"And in reality, we will not be deceived, everyone loses," the deputy concluded.

      lyrics by Nautilus Pompilius:

      There is always one truth -
      That said Pharaoh
      He was very smart.
      And for this he was called Tutankhamun.

      And the French deputy Thierry Mariani, the milkman.

        French MP: I am a little surprised at the dismissal from the post at the PACE because of the trip to Crimea
        Yesterday Kiselev in his program voiced a cool idea. Its essence is that after the collapse of the USSR, the West and I exchanged places in terms of human rights and freedoms, religious and democratic freedoms of citizens. But the paradox is so.

          It may sound paradoxical - we now defend democracy and punish obscurantism.

          The paradox is that taking a step back, we were ahead of the rest!
          In fact, until 1991 we were also ahead, including in terms of real freedoms of citizens, but the west did not see us ...
          Now we are closer, the comparisons have become more correct, and here is the result!

          At the same time, we lost good free medical care, equalization of opportunities to purchase vital products, free education in a normal way, industry ....
          We bought girls along the roads, trading in stalls, singed vodka, and endless travel agencies with intrusive service.

          The parliamentarian noted that “I’m very surprised, as in ordinary conditions the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe should serve place of dialogueand not a place where, I would say, sentences are being handed down».

          Here is the definition of the PACE function (or whatever?) Today by the European (now former) parliamentarian.

          this is not quite a true idea for you: we were always ahead of them in terms of freedoms, it’s just now that it has become brighter
          After all, Western countries are real totalitarianism according to its classical definition - complete state control over the population - this is through credit cards and cameras on the streets and everywhere, everywhere, and through the social security number and neighbors knocking on each other and so on and so forth.
          in our country, there was never total control, there were no single bases

      US Ambassador to Russia John Tefft said that if the Minsk agreements are implemented, Washington is ready to lift part of the sanctions from Russia, but it will not cancel all, as long as Crimea remains Russian.

    Well, the Frenchman finally realized that the notorious PACE is a “washing machine” for “washing someone else’s dirty laundry”, but in no way for solving European problems ...

    It finally came. Democracy is a delicate matter. Especially when the Americans take it.

    Get used to the European heh heh of solidarity ... most likely the Anglo-Saxons ruling in the PACE put pressure on the leadership of this organization ...

    but this fact itself clearly shows that there is no democracy in Europe, but there are only WASHINGTON installations that all states in the EU are obliged to carry out.

    Democracy is a democracy, but one should not get out of the general course.
    And what general course in PACE, at the expense of Russia, I think it’s not worth explaining ...

    Another US strike on Europe.
    An extra argument in favor of right-wing and far-right opposition forces.
    Against the background of such democracy, fascism may seem justified.

    The "Modern Inquisition" ..... The fact that this organization, PACE, has recently become the refuge of unscrupulous politicians, is already known to all sane people. Well, as for the visit of the Frenchman and the delegation to the Russian Crimea, it was the right step. Freedom and "Democracy" are becoming less and less in the EU, more and more methods of restriction, coercion and punishment, intimidation, etc. .. Crimea is part of Russia, what does "Ukroevry" have to do with it ?!

    "In addition, in his opinion, the authorities of European countries lack independence from the influence of a" big neighbor on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean "

    Mister deputy, you were mistaken.
    Not a "big" neighbor, but a "sick" neighbor.
    So rather.
    He was diagnosed with paranoia, delusions of grandeur, delusions of persecution, and a number of serious diseases that cannot be treated.
    The patient should be isolated in a closed medical institution.

    Not for exactly the trip to Crimea this deputy was "lustrated", but for what he saw / heard there and conveyed to the "civilized" world. Namely, that the Crimeans do not consider themselves occupied at all, are glad to return to Russia and are happy that they got rid of the silly ukrofashiks.
    Well this is what a blow to the image of the State Department ugroshavok. They do not like the truth about themselves.

    But is not the time to recall ambassadors from European states.?
    They do not have national sovereignty !? They are ruled by anyone: masters from across the ocean, runaway Arabs, and even nudibranded jumpers from the outskirts.
    Why do the ambassadors eat away state funds in the colonial states? Yes, and send them! All Euro issues are decided directly through Washington. For there is no one to speak with in the geyrop.
