“President Obama and his fellow Democrats are either idiots or deliberately trying to destroy their own economy.” – Vladimir Putin

“I’m an adult and I know what power means in the modern world. In the modern world, power is mainly defined by such factors as the economy, defence and cultural influence. I believe that in terms of defence, Russia is without any doubt one of the leaders because we are a nuclear power and our nuclear weapons are perhaps the best in the world.” – Vladimir Putin

“You can do a lot more with weapons and politeness than just politeness.” – Vladimir Putin

“The events in Crimea themselves have nothing to do with what happened in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and other regions. In my opinion, when the world becomes unipolar, or when someone tries to make it so, then this one pole has the illusion that all issues can be settled through power. And only when there is a balance of power does the desire to negotiate appears.” – Vladimir Putin

“Any fourth grade history student knows socialism has failed in every country, at every time in history,” – Vladimir Putin

“Democracy is an internal subject of the developing society. There are fundamentals of democracy, and they should be understood universally in different countries.” – Vladimir Putin

“People in the eastern regions [of Ukaraine] are talking about federalisation, and Kiev has at long last started talking about de-centralisation. Order in the country can only be restored through dialogue and democratic procedures, rather than with the use of armed force, tanks and aircraft.” – Vladimir Putin

“If NATO troops walk in Crimea, they will immediately deploy their forces there. Such a move would be geopolitically sensitive for us because, in this case, Russia would be practically ousted from the Black Sea area. We’d be left with just a small coastline of 450 or 600km, and that’s it!” – Vladimir Putin

“Journalism, as concerns collecting information, differs little if at all from intelligence work. In my judgment, a journalist’s job is very interesting.” – Vladimir Putin

“Democracy is not possible without effectively working legal system.” – Vladimir Putin

“You must obey the law, always, not only when they grab you by your special place.” – Vladimir Putin

“Prisons where people can’t even work is the worst punishment you can think of. And I don’t think we should put all convicts in such facilities where people are deprived of their freedom.” – Vladimir Putin

“Nobody should pin their hopes on a miracle.” – Vladimir Putin

“Of course, it’s always bad to lose, of course it’s always a hardship when you lose to yesterday’s miners or yesterday’s tractor drivers. But life is life. It’ll surely go on.” – Vladimir Putin

“Millions around the world increasingly see America not as a model of democracy but as relying solely on brute force” – Vladimir Putin
