Vladimir Putin on life and terrorism
Nobody should have any illusion about the possibility of gaining military superiority over Russia. We will never allow this to happen.
Terrorism has no nationality or religion
Above all, such sports as judo, in my view, teach people to relate to each other. They teach us to respect a partner, teach us to understand that an externally weak partner can not only put up worthy resistance, but, if you relax and take too much for granted, may even win.
Indeed, Russia and the U.S. were allies during the two tragic conflicts of the Second and the First World Wars, which allows us to think there's something objectively bringing us together in difficult times, and I think - I believe - it has to do with geopolitical interests and also has a moral component.
History proves that all dictatorships, all authoritarian forms of government are transient. Only democratic systems are not transient. Whatever the shortcomings, mankind has not devised anything superior.
I think the international community should unite to fight such inhuman phenomena as terror attacks and the murder of totally innocent people.
I'm sure corruption in Chechnya is minimal.
Terrorists-We shall fight against them, throw them in prisons and destroy them.
Yes, life in Chechnya so far looks more like a life after a natural disaster.
Anyone who doesn't regret the passing of the Soviet Union has no heart. Anyone who wants it restored has no brains.
One can truly enjoy his or her life only while experiencing it, and it is inevitably related to a certain level of risk.
Cromwell was just as much of a bloody dictator as was Stalin.
Terrorists are always a threat to someone. If we'll be scared of them, it means they have won.
Libya is divided into tribes and clans.
Russia doesn't negotiate with terrorists
We will find them anywhere on the planet and punish them. Our Air Force’s military work in Syria must not simply be continued. It must be intensified in such a way that the criminals understand that vengeance is inevitable
If you want to become an Islamic fundamentalist and be circumcised, come to Moscow. We are multi-confessional. We have very good specialists.I can recommend one for the operation. He’ll make sure nothing grows back.
