Last quote by Vladimir Putin

Stalin was a product of his time. You can demonize him all you want, or, on the other hand, talk about his contributions to victory over Nazism. But the excessive demonization of Stalin is just one way to attack the Soviet Union and Russia, to suggest that today's Russia carries the birthmarks of Stalinism. Everyone has one kind of birthmark or another. So what? Of course.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Russia

What fingerprints or hoof-prints or horn-prints, what are you talking about? IP addresses? They can be invented, you know? There are a lot of specialists who can even make it so it comes from your home IP address, as if your 3-year-old daughter carried out the attack.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Russia

That's completely nonsense! Do you even understand what you're asking, or not?feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Trump-Putin

Put your finger anywhere on a map of the world, and everywhere you will hear complaints that American officials are interfering in internal electoral processes.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Trump-Putin

They have been misled. And they aren't analyzing the information in its entirety. I haven't seen, even once, any direct proof of Russian interference in the (U.S.) presidential election.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

That's it. I didn't even really talk to him. That's the extent of my acquaintance with Mr Flynn.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Trump-Putin

I'm being honest. Do you think that from all over the world and the United States, the ambassador reports to me every day who he eats with or meets with. Well, this is just another load of nonsense. Where would we get this information from? Did we have a special relationship with him? We didn't have any relationship at all. ... Have you all lost your senses over there? I don't know about this proposal. No proposal like that came to me.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Russia

Right now, I think we have representatives from a hundred American companies that have come to Russia. Do you think we're gathering compromising information on all of them right now or something? Have you all lost your senses over there?feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Russia

Why do you feel you have the right to ask us these kinds of questions? And do it all the time? To moralize and to give us lessons on how to live?feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Trump-Putin

I never met with him. We have a lot of Americans who visit us. Do you think we're gathering compromising information on all of them right now or something? Are you all – have you all lost your senses over there? Had there been anything significant he would have reported it to the minister. The minister would have reported it to me. There weren't even any reports. There's nothing to even talk about. There wasn't even any kind of specific discussion about sanctions or anything else. For me, this is just amazing. You created a sensation out of nothing. They have been misled.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Democratic Party

If this theory is correct and that can't be ruled out, then what could be easier, in this day and age, than using all the technical means at the disposal of the intelligence services, and using those means to organize some attacks and then pointing the finger at Russia.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Trump-Putin

Well, this is just another load of nonsense. Where would we get this information from? Why, did we have some special relationship with him? We didn't have any relationship at all.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Russia

Put your finger anywhere on a map of the world, and everywhere you will hear complaints that American officials are interfering in internal electoral processes. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. But, I repeat, we don't even have to do that. Presidents come and go, and even the parties in power change, but the main political direction does not change. It wouldn't make sense for us to interfere. Well, this is just another load of nonsense. Where would we get this information from?feedback

Jun 03 2017 - China

This destroys the strategic balance in the world. What is happening is a very serious and alarming process. In Alaska, and now in South Korea, elements of the anti-missile defense system are emerging. Should we just stand idly by and watch this? Of course not. We are thinking about how to respond to these challenges. This is a challenge for us.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - Russia

There are problems we know of, and we have talked about them with the mayor. I hope that everything will be corrected in accordance with the citizens' wishes.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - Trump Presidency

Jun 02 2017 - Trump-Putin

Hackers can be anywhere. They can be in Russia, in Asia...even in America, Latin America. They can even be hackers, by the way, in the United States who very skillfully and professionally shifted the blame, as we say, onto Russia. Can you imagine something like that? In the midst of a political battle? They might have read a certain article and if they are in the patriotic mood, then they start making their contributions the way they see it positive towards the Russian image.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump-Putin

By some calculations it was convenient for them to release this information, so they released it, citing Russia. Could you imagine something like that? I can.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

What fingerprints? Hoof prints? Horn prints? Technology experts can invent anything and put the blame on anyone.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - NATO

IP addresses can be invented – a child can do that! Your underage daughter could do that. That is not proof.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump-Putin

It reminds me of antisemitism - the Jews are to blame for everything. You know, if a moron can't do anything for himself - the Jews are to blame. But we know what such sentiments lead to - it doesn't end in anything good.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump-Putin

Have you read those reports? I have read those reports. And even in them there is nothing specific! There are only assumptions and conclusions on based on suppositions.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump-Putin

I didn't know anyone was meeting anyone. There was nothing concrete, zero. It's all hysteria. Isn't there some kind of pill you can take? There was no such agreement.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump-Putin

You shouldn't make a noise about this, but should create the conditions for joint work. If such a major emitter as the US is not going to cooperate entirely then it won't be possible to agree any deal in this area. In my view it was possible (for the US) not to leave the Paris agreement because it is a framework deal, and it was possible to change the US obligations inside the framework of these agreements. But what has been said has been said. And we need to think what to do further.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump-Putin

There was nothing concrete, zero. It's just hysteria. Should I give you a pill?feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump-Putin

Don't worry… be happy. This accord has not yet come into effect; it is supposed to come into effect as of 2021… so we still have time. If we are all constructive in what we do, there are things that we can agree on.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - NSA

Snowden was right in that sense [that NSA surveillance had gone to far]. But I don't think he should have done it. I trust them.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - NATO

Well, in a sense that maybe, they should completely be falling apart, that will help. But we don't see that falling apart just yet.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Russia

Help us restore normal political dialogue. I ask you on behalf of Russia and I address the American side: held the new president and the new administration.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Russia

Snowden is not a traitor. He did not betray the interests of his country, nor did he transfer any information to any other country that would damage his own people. He shouldn't have done it (leaked secrets). My view is that what he did was wrong. Trying to spy on your allies, if you really consider them allies and not vassals, is just indecent. It undermines trust, and in the end damages your own national security.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump-Putin

It reminds me of anti-Semitism. A dumb man who can't do anything would blame the Jews for everything.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump-Putin

It's an attempt to solve internal political problems using foreign policy instruments. It's harmful, hurting international relations, the global economy, security and the fight against terror. It's time to stop that useless and harmful chatter.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - NATO

My answer is no. There were no agreements. We didn't even come close to that. We didn't even start negotiations.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Syria conflict

We are absolutely convinced that it was a provocation. Assad didn't use the weapons. It was done by people who wanted to blame him for that. Thank God, they were smart enough not to do that after we released information about it. Modern control equipment would have shown that chemical weapons had been on that particular plane or site in the base. No one wanted. There was a lot of talk, but zero action. Has Assad made mistakes? Yes, quite a few. And what about people confronting him? Are they angels? Who are they who kill people there, execute children? Are they people who we should support?feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Syria conflict

Primarily, we are defending not Assad but the Syrian statehood. We don't want to see the situation there become like it is in Libya, Somalia or Afghanistan.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - French Election Results

At the government level, we never engage in this. This is what is most important.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - French Election Results

Hackers are free people like artists. If artists get up in the morning feeling good, all they do all day is paint. The same goes for hackers. They got up today and read that something is going on internationally. If they are feeling patriotic they will start contributing, as they believe, to the justified fight against those speaking ill of Russia. Is that possible? In theory, yes.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - French election 2017

We are patient, we know how to wait and we will wait. We never engaged in that on a state level, and have no intention of doing so. We are concerned about our security. We are thinking about ways to neutralize possible threats at long distance.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Russia

I must stress, on a state level, we are never engaged into these kind of activity.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Terrorism

I can imagine that some do it deliberately, staging a chain of attacks in such a way as to cast Russia as the origin of such an attack. Modern technologies allow that to be done quite easily. It's having an impact, and I'm afraid this is one of the goals of those who organize it are pursuing and they can fine-tune the public sentiments to their liking trying to establish an atmosphere that is going to prevent us from addressing common issues, say with regard to terrorism. We never engaged in that on a state level, and have no intention of doing so.feedback

May 30 2017 - Syria conflict

According to our information, there is no proof that chemical weapons were used by Assad. We are convinced that he didn't do it.feedback

May 30 2017 - French election 2017

It would have been very strange on our part to refuse to have a meeting with a leading political figure in Europe who wishes to develop good relations with Russia. It doesn't mean we tried to influence the result of the French presidential election–this is impossible.feedback

May 30 2017 - Syria conflict

We support political contacts, contacts between defence ministries, we work together on sorting difficult situation, including in Syria.feedback

May 30 2017 - Syria conflict

We are grateful to you for your ideas and the joint work between OPEC and the countries, which are not part of the cartel.feedback

May 29 2017 - Ukraine Crisis

You have asked how sanctions against Russia will help in the resolution of the crisis in Ukraine's southeast. They will not. So I appeal to you as well as to the representatives of French media – you should fight for the lifting of all restrictions in the global economy.feedback

May 29 2017 - Front National

We are ready to receive any person, always. If Madame Le Pen asked to meet us, why would we want to refuse her? .. The more so since she always publicly spoke out for developing relations with our country. It would be strange for us to refuse her.feedback

May 29 2017 - French election 2017

Let's tell things like they are: Russia Today and Sputnik didn't behave like organs of the press and journalists, they behaved like organs of influence and mendacious propaganda.feedback

May 29 2017 - Syria conflict

These sanctions do not contribute at all to settling the crisis in Ukraine.feedback

May 29 2017 - Syria conflict

Only the abolition of all restrictions, a free market and free competition unburdened by political considerations can help develop the world economy.feedback

May 18 2017 - Trump-Putin

I spoke to (Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov) today. I'll be forced to issue him with a reprimand because he did not share these secrets with us. Not with me, nor with representatives of Russia's intelligence services. It was very bad of him.feedback

May 17 2017

These people either don't understand that they are hurting their own country, and in that case they are just dumb. Or they do understand everything, and that means that they are dangerous and unscrupulous.feedback

May 17 2017 - Trump-Putin

What surprises me is that they are shaking up the domestic political situation using anti-Russian slogans. Either they don't understand the damage they're doing to their own country, in which case they are simply stupid, or they understand everything, in which case they are dangerous and corrupt.feedback

May 17 2017 - Trump-Putin

If the US administration finds it possible, we are ready to provide a recording of the conversation between Lavrov and Trump to the US Congress and Senate.feedback

May 17 2017 - Trump-Putin

It's hard to imagine what else can these people who generate such nonsense and rubbish dream up next.feedback

May 16 2017 - Terrorism

This tragedy is additional proof of the barbaric nature of terrorism that is posing a challenge to human civilization. It is obvious that to counter this evil effectively the entire international community needs to truly join efforts. I would like to confirm the readiness of the Russian side to closely cooperate with our French partners in investigating the crime committed in Paris.feedback

May 16 2017 - Terrorism

Russia knows terrorism and the threat it creates for us all. Our people have had to deal with similar tragedies many times, and we are deeply distressed at the news. We would like to express our sympathy and solidarity with the French nation. … I would like to stress again that only through a united effort can we defeat terrorism.feedback

May 15 2017 - North Korea

We need to return to dialogue with North Korea and stop scaring it and find ways to resolve these problems peacefully. If you recall, there was a time when North Korea announced it was suspending this kind of (nuclear) program, but unfortunately certain participants in the negotiations process did not have enough patience. I think we need to return to this. This missile launch presented no threat to us, but it of course escalates this conflict and there is nothing good about that.feedback

May 15 2017 - United Nations

I want to confirm that we are categorically against the expansion of the club of nuclear powers, including with the Korean Peninsula and North Korea. But at the same time, we understand that what we have observed in the world recently, and specifically flagrant violations of international law and incursions into the territory of foreign states, changes in regime, lead to such kinds of arms races. In this connection, we need to act in a joined-up way, (and) strengthen the system of international guarantees with the help of international law and with the help of the U.N. Charter.feedback

May 15 2017 - Russia

I don't know, I think we'd need to meet him, have a discussion, and depending on the result choose a melody.feedback

May 15 2017 - Russia

I have met with the heads of the companies ... and we support the proposal.feedback

May 15 2017 - Trump-Putin

They "need to meet first, talk and then choose the tune to match.feedback

May 15 2017 - Kurds

Unlike other countries we are not announcing any arms deliveries to Kurdish formations. We don't believe we need to start such work.feedback

May 15 2017 - Russia

Once they're let out of the lamp, genies of this kind, especially those created by intelligence services, can later do damage to their authors and creators.feedback

May 11 2017 - Palestine

The Palestine-Israel conflict can only be a political, negotiation-based solution based on international rights. I would like to underline that the peaceful coexistence of two states of Palestine and Israel is the indispensable condition to provide true security and stability in the Middle East.feedback

May 11 2017 - Trump-Putin

There will be no effect.feedback

May 10 2017

Soft power is a complex of tools and methods to achieve foreign policy goals without the use of force, through information and other means of influence.feedback

May 09 2017 - Russia

No force will be able to dominate our people. I congratulate you on Victory Day, when greatness is defined by the people, by their unprecedented heroic deed – the salvation of the Fatherland and heroic, decisive contribution to the defeat of Nazism.feedback

May 09 2017 - Arctic

The Russian soldier today, as in all times, showing courage and heroism, is ready for any feat, for any sacrifice for the sake of his motherland and people.feedback

May 09 2017 - Arctic

But for an effective battle with terrorism, extremism, neo-Nazism and other threats the whole international community needs to be consolidated. ... We are open for such cooperation.feedback

May 09 2017 - Russia

The armed forces of Russia are capable of repelling any potential aggression.feedback

May 09 2017 - Terrorism

This monstrous tragedy was not able to be prevented primarily because of the connivance of the criminal ideology of racial superiority and due to the lack of unity among the world's leading nations. To effectively combat terrorism, extremism, neo-Nazism and other threats, consolidation of the entire international community is necessary. We feel a piercing blood relationship with a generation of heroes and victors.feedback

May 09 2017

We feel a piercing blood relationship with a generation of heroes and winners.feedback

May 09 2017 - Russia

The lessons of the past war call on us to be vigilant, and the Russian armed forces are ready to counter any potential aggression.feedback

May 08 2017 - French election 2017

The citizens of France have entrusted you the leadership of the country at a difficult time for Europe and for the entire international community.feedback

May 08 2017 - Trump-Putin

Your question looks very funny for me. Don't be angry with me. We have nothing to do with that. President Trump is acting in accordance with his competence, in accordance with his law and Constitution. What about us? Why we?feedback

May 08 2017 - French Election Results

The citizens of France have entrusted you to lead the country in a period that is difficult for Europe and for all of world society. The growing threat of terrorism and militant extremism is accompanied by an escalation of local conflicts and the destabilization of entire regions.feedback

May 06 2017 - Homosexuality

What is going on with a non-traditional sexual orientation in the North Caucasus.feedback

May 05 2017 - Homosexuality

Of course, I will have a talk with the general prosecutor and interior minister so they support you on the topic that you have raised on information or rumours, we might say, about what is happening to sexual minorities in the North Caucasus.feedback

May 05 2017 - Doping

Russia is ready for an open and consistent participation in work to establish an accomplished global anti-doping system. Once again, I would like to reiterate something that we have always stated: Russia never had, and I hope never will have, a state-backed system of doping support. On the contrary - we will fight doping.feedback

May 05 2017 - Doping

I believe that positive processes which we have started, to reform anti-doping structures, are irreversible. We must listen to what WADA has to say, because we have to admit that we have several cases of proven doping violation. This is unacceptable. We will do everything to organize efficient and fruitful work with all our partners, including WADA and the IOC. I hope they have the same intentions.feedback

May 05 2017 - Olympic Games

Apart from the capital of our country, we have a number of cities which could potentially host Summer Olympics. There is Sochi, of course, but also St. Petersburg and possibly Kazan. We are not going to make any specific statements, yet. In 2014, our country successfully hosted the Winter Games in Sochi. However, I do not rule out the possibility that Russia will decide to enter in bidding process for the right to host another Olympics.feedback

May 05 2017 - Olympic Games

Regarding Los Angeles, it is not for us to estimate the city's chances. This must be done by the IOC. USA is one of the leading sports countries in the world, and I believe had good chance of getting the honor of hosting the games. It is well known that LA hosted the games in 1984 and the USSR team unfortunately did not participate - just like the U.S. team which did not come to Moscow in 1980. No-one benefited from this.feedback

May 03 2017 - Turkey

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and I adhere to the viewpoint the Syrian conflict can be settled exclusively by political and diplomatic means. As for the flights over de-escalation zones – combat aviation will not be operating there on condition that no military activity is registered in such zones. One of the means of enhancing the ceasefire is to create zones of security and de-escalation. We heard the US president say so in one of his statements. In particular, departmental consultations on anti-terrorist operations will continue to be held on a regular basis.feedback

May 03 2017 - Turkey

It was agreed to enhance interaction along these lines between the special services and defense ministries.feedback

May 03 2017 - Turkey

Some time ago our bilateral ties, as it well known, were tested. Now we can say with certainty remark that the recovery process in Russo-Turkish ties is complete. We are getting back to a normal cooperative partnership.feedback

May 03 2017 - Homosexuality

Russia's law-enforcement bodies behave in a far more restrained manner than their colleagues in other European countries.feedback

May 03 2017 - Syria conflict

We as guarantors – Turkey, Iran, Russia – will do everything for this to work.feedback

May 03 2017 - Syria conflict

We all take the view that we need to... create mechanisms that would guarantee a cessation of bloodshed and create the conditions for the start of a political dialogue. In this respect our position and that of the Turkish president totally coincide.feedback

May 02 2017 - Syria conflict

Those guilty must be found and punished. But this can be only done after an impartial investigation.feedback

May 02 2017 - Syria conflict

We must use this opportunity to talk about our relations and about more problematic issues, such as Ukraine and Syria and perhaps some other regions.feedback

May 02 2017 - Russia

Our law enforcement and judicial organs act within the framework of the laws that exist in Russia and will continue to act in that way, observing order and discipline.feedback

May 02 2017 - Syria conflict

We never interfere in the political life and the political processes of other countries and we don't want anybody interfering in our political life and foreign policy processes. Certainly, without the participation of such a party as the United States, it is also impossible to solve these problems effectively. So we are and will continue to be in contact with our American partners, and I hope that we will attain understanding there regarding joint steps in this very important and sensitive area of international relations today.feedback

Apr 27 2017 - Japan

We call on all governments involved to refrain from using belligerent rhetoric and to strive for peaceful constructive dialogue.feedback

Apr 18 2017

I regret seeing that people pay such importance to fan fights. The way we treat the violators has to be the same. They all have to be equally treated.feedback

Apr 17 2017 - Russia

I know the mood and expectations of Muscovites. They expect these buildings to be torn down and new housing to be built in their place.feedback

Apr 13 2017 - US, Russia relations

The level of trust on a working level, especially on the military level, has not improved but has rather deteriorated.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - Trump-Putin

We have not seen a single fact, or even a hint of facts. I do not know who saw them. No one showed us anything, no one said anything, although we repeatedly asked to produce the details on which these unfounded accusations lie.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - Chemical weapons

I've said that this U.S. strike reminds me strongly of events in Iraq in 2003, when U.S. representatives in the UN Security Council showed alleged chemical weapons found in Iraq. A military campaign was launched in Iraq after this and it resulted in the destruction of the country, in the growth of the terrorist threat and the emergence of Islamic State on the international arena.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - Syria conflict

The level of trust at the working level, especially at the military level, has not become better but most likely has degraded.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - Chemical weapons

It reminds me of events in 2003 when representatives of the US showed in the Security Council the so-called chemical weapons, found in Iraq. After that the campaign in Iraq began and resulted in destruction of the country, and increase of terrorist threat.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - Syria conflict

Similar provocations – and I can't call it anything other than that – are being prepared in other parts of Syria.feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Syria conflict

We have information that a similar provocation is being prepared in other parts of Syria including in the southern Damascus suburbs where they are planning to again plant some substance and accuse the Syrian authorities of using (chemical weapons).feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Syria conflict

We have information that a similar provocation is being prepared ... in other parts of Syria including in the southern Damascus suburbs where they are planning to again plant some substance and accuse the Syrian authorities of using (chemical weapons).feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Russia

It reminds me of the events in 2003 when U.S. envoys to the Security Council were demonstrating what they said were chemical weapons found in Iraq. We have seen it all already.feedback

Apr 08 2017 - Stockholm attack 2017

In our country, people know, and not by hearsay, about the atrocities of international terrorism.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Russia

Callous quasi-freedom on the internet does not exist anywhere any more.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Saint Petersburg metro explosion 2017

We see that, unfortunately, the situation is not improving. The recent tragic events in St. Petersburg are the best confirmation of this. We know that each of our countries, practically every one, is a possible and potential target of terrorist attacks.feedback

Apr 03 2017

Today we have no differences remaining. We will move ahead, we will strengthen our relations within the framework of the union state.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - Russia

We will give a full evaluation of what happened, and city and federal authorities will do everything possible to support families of our killed and injured citizens.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - Russia

I would like to express the words of sincerest condolences to relatives of the killed and wounded. I have already spoken with the chiefs of special services, FSB director, law enforcement bodies and special services are working. We will do everything to identify the reasons for what happened.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - Saint Petersburg metro explosion 2017

Law enforcement agencies and intelligence services are doing their best to establish the cause and give a full picture of what happened.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - Saint Petersburg metro explosion 2017

All possible causes of the blast in the St Petersburg metro are being considered, including terrorism.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - Saint Petersburg metro explosion 2017

I have already talked to the chiefs of special services, the [Federal Security Service] director. The law enforcement agencies and special services are working, and they will do everything to find out the causes of the incident and make a full assessment of what has happened.feedback

Apr 02 2017 - American politics

Watch my lips, no. All those things are fictional, illusory and provocations, lies, he said. All these are used for domestic American political agendas. The anti-Russian card is played by different political forces inside the United States to trade on that and consolidate their positions inside.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Trump-Putin

We feel that our US partners are interested in developing this cooperation and this is a very good signal. We hope that this (cooperation) will spread to other world regions, including the Arctic,'' the president said.feedback

Mar 30 2017

This anti-Russian card is being played in the interests of some political forces inside the United States with an aim to strengthen and consolidate their positions.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Arctic

This is a big event in the opening up of the Arctic.feedback

Mar 30 2017

We consider appeals of this sort to be purely politicized questions with the goal of putting some kind of pressure on the internal political life of the country.feedback

Everybody should act in political processes within the framework of the law. All those who go outside this law should bear punishment in accordance with Russian law.feedback

This tool was used at the beginning of the so-called Arab Spring.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Trump-Putin

The President is barred from implementing his agenda on health-care or international affairs, relations with Russia and we will wait till things stabilise. At a certain point of time it will come to a close and we will decide when and where the meeting is held.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Russia

This is a global problem: We shouldn't do this in just one place, in one country. We're willing to work together and we really look forward to having this kind of constructive cooperation.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Arctic

Our moves are of a local nature and their moves are of (a) global nature. They've been developing their missile defense system there, building it up, and this system is one of the overarching concerns of global security today. It's not a defense system, no, it's part of the nuclear forces of theirs, installed in the periphery. It's not on the defensive, it helps minimize our response. We have no intention of starting a war in the Arctic. We don't want to compete with the U.S.: We all know that the U.S. spends more on defense than the rest of the world.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Trump-Putin

Only by pooling efforts can we efficiently combat terrorism. I hope that we will eventually come to constructive cooperation. There are many issues which long have come to a head in the economic and security fields and regarding regional conflicts. We are ready for that discussion. It's necessary for the other side to also show goodwill and readiness for constructive work.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Trump-Putin

Isn't it nonsense? What is the ambassador there for? He's there to speak to people, to maintain contacts with the political elite, with businessmen, with members of the House and the Senate, with administration officials. They are now also taking up the issue of the meetings our businessmen and bankers had there. Don't American businessmen come here and speak to our representatives, including Russian government officials? Otherwise how can they work? Of course they do. We aren't obstructing it, just the opposite, we are helping it.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Trump-Putin

I don't think it's in the interests of the majority of the American people to bring the U.S.-Russian relations to absurdity for the sake of domestic politics. Do we want to completely cut diplomatic relations? Do we want to bring the situation to what it was in the 1960s during the Cuban (missile) crisis? Where do people behaving in such an irresponsible way want to take us all, including the American people. We aren't obstructing it, just opposite, we are helping it. Only by pooling efforts can we efficiently combat terrorism. I hope that we will eventually come to constructive cooperation.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - CIA

Read my lips: No. We are seeing what's going on. They are preventing the new president from fulfilling his campaign promises on many issues: health care, other issues, international relations, ties with Russia. We are waiting for the situation to normalize and become more stable. And we aren't interfering in any way. This anti-Russian card is being played in the interests of some political forces inside the United States with an aim to strengthen and consolidate their positions.feedback

Climate change brings in more favorable conditions and improves the economic potential of this region.feedback

Natural resources, which are of paramount importance for the Russian economy, are concentrated in this region.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Iran

Leading Russian companies have achieved a series of important agreements about developing large oil and gas fields in Iran. Our countries cooperate in the framework of Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF). We will coordinate our efforts to stabilize world oil markets.feedback

Mar 24 2017 - Russia

We're not trying to influence events. We are trying to maintain relations with the ruling authorities and opposition representatives too. We don't want to influence in any way the events underway.feedback

Mar 24 2017 - Kremlin

Of course I know that the election campaign in France is actively developing. We do not want to influence events in any way, but we reserve the right to talk to representatives of all the country's political forces.feedback

Mar 23 2017

I've already said that this is the result of treason, and traitors meet their end the same way they got their start, either by drinking themselves to death, or by using drugs, lying in a ditch. One of them recently met his end about the same way. These are officers, you understand? Someone betrayed his friends, his comrades in arms, people who put their lives on the altar of the fatherland. And then you get some animal who is willing to betrays people like this. How will he look into his children's eyes after this? Pig!feedback

Mar 23 2017

The "forces of terror are acting in an increasingly treacherous and cynical way. It's necessary to unite efforts of all members of international community to confront the terror threat.feedback

Mar 20 2017 - NATO

Some pro-Russian people might use the mistreatment of Latgale as a hook, you know? As an excuse. If Russia came and tried to invade Latgale I think there would be people who would welcome them. We can't really rely on NATO, we can't really rely on anybody else, just ourselves.feedback

Mar 16 2017 - Russia

We are looking forward to her visit to Russia on May 2.feedback

Mar 14 2017 - Kremlin

We can't allow splits, animosity, insults and the bitterness of the past to be dragged into our lives today.feedback

Mar 13 2017 - Kremlin

The candidate Hillary Clinton was quite negative – declaring Russia the main evil, the main threat. Whom would you like better – the one that says Russia is evil? Or the one that says yes we disagree, but let's find points of agreement. We don't have a proper understanding of the future. We certainly would expect our contacts to be more frequent, more in depth, because we had quite a significant pause.feedback

Mar 10 2017 - Terrorism

Russia has always been very firm against all forms of terrorism, whatever the guiding principle of that terrorism, whatever ideas are being championed by the people behind that terrorism. That is our fundamental position and it won't change, under any circumstances.feedback

Mar 02 2017

Does anyone really think that Russia could influence the American people's choice in any way? Is America a great power or a banana republic?feedback

Mar 01 2017 - Doping

We need to listen to WADA's demands. Because we must admit that we do have proven cases of athletes doping. It's absolutely unacceptable and it means that the doping control system that was in place didn't work. And this is our fault.feedback

Mar 01 2017 - Doping

Current Russian anti-doping system has failed.feedback

Mar 01 2017 - Doping

When we provided the test samples, there were no complaints.feedback

Feb 28 2017 - Sanctions

I think it's absolutely inappropriate now towards the Syrian government, using sanctions. Because it doesn't help, it wouldn't help the negotiation process but would only hinder it, and would undermine trust in the negotiation process. Russia won't support any new sanctions against Syria.feedback

Feb 28 2017 - United Nations

I think it is totally inappropriate. It would undermine trust in the negotiating process. Russia will not support any new sanctions against the Syrian leadership.feedback

Feb 24 2017 - United Nations

Our task is only to stabilize the legitimate authorities and deliver a final blow against international terrorism.feedback

Feb 16 2017 - NATO

It's absolutely clear that in the area of counter-terrorism all relevant governments and international groups should work together.feedback

Feb 11 2017 - Trump-Putin

What about Ljubljana, Slovenia? Of course, it is a great place to hold a dialogue of this kind. But it doesn't depend only on us, it also depends on a range of things, current issues. If these meetings ever happen, then I have nothing against Ljubljana.feedback

Feb 10 2017 - Trump-Putin

By joining our efforts, we could make a considerable contribution to settling these issues, including fighting international terrorism.feedback

Feb 10 2017 - Trump-Putin

As regards Ljubljana, Slovenia in general, it is of course a brilliant place to have a dialogue of such a sort. But it doesn't depend only on us, it depends on a whole series of circumstances. If these meetings ever happen, we don't have anything against Ljubljana.feedback

Feb 10 2017 - Trump-Putin

It depends not only on us, but we are naturally ready for it. We always welcomed that and we hope that relations will be restored in full in all areas. It relates to trade and economic ties, security issues and various regions of the world, which are suffering from numerous conflicts. By pooling our efforts, we naturally would be able to significantly contribute to solving those issues, including the fight against international terrorism.feedback

Doctors who work at the TSKB (Central Clinical Hospital) believe that the level of professional training, the financing, the equipment, don't meet modern standards. A lot needs to be reformed there.feedback

Jan 18 2017 - Trump-Putin

Trump arrives and straight away rushes to meet with Moscow prostitutes. This is an adult man first of all and, apart from that, is a man who for many years took part in organising beauty contests.feedback

Jan 18 2017 - Trump-Putin

People who order such fakes, fabricate them and use them in a political struggle are worse than prostitutes. They have no moral limits whatsoever. By the way, Russia deals with such people all the time, with our opponents. I find it difficult to believe that he ran to a hotel to meet with our girls of reduced social responsibility. Although here we do have the best ones in the world.feedback

Jan 17 2017 - Trump-Putin

People who are doing that are inflicting colossal damage to the interests of the United States. How can you do anything to improve U.S.-Russian relations when they launch such canards as hackers' interference in the election?feedback

Jan 17 2017 - Trump-Putin

They are also the best in the world.feedback

Jan 17 2017 - Trump-Putin

Firstly, it is to undermine the legitimacy of the president-elect. Second, it is to tie the president's arms and legs to prevent him from realizing his promises to the American people, both at home and abroad. How is it possible to make steps toward improving Russian-American relationships while all those fake stories are being thrown in?feedback

Jan 17 2017 - Trump-Putin

People who order such fakes against the U.S. president-elect, fabricate them and use them in political struggle are worse than prostitutes. They have no moral restrictions whatsoever, and it highlights a significant degree of degradation of political elites in the West, including in the United States.feedback

Jan 17 2017 - Trump-Putin

I don't know Mr. Trump. I have never met him and I don't know what he will do on the international arena. I have no reason whatsoever to assail him, criticize him for something, or defend him.feedback

Jan 17 2017 - Trump-Putin

He wasn't a politician, we didn't even know about his political ambitions. Do they think that our special services are hunting for every U.S. billionaire?feedback

Jan 17 2017 - Trump-Putin

How can you do anything to improve U.S.-Russian relations when they launch such canards as hackers' interference in the election?feedback

Jan 17 2017

It needs to be recognized that mutually beneficial ties with Russia deteriorated against the background of attempts to force a closer relationship with the European Union.feedback

Jan 13 2017 - Trump-Putin

If Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset, not a liability, because we have a horrible relationship with Russia.feedback

Jan 11 2017 - Trump-Putin

We think that this selection will be something that - with time - will straighten it out.feedback

Jan 04 2017

We will not create any problems for U.S. diplomats – we will not expel anyone. It is regrettable that the Obama administration is ending its term in this manner. Nevertheless, I offer my New Year greetings to President Obama and his family.feedback

Jan 01 2017

It is hard to imagine a more cynical crime than killing innocent people during New Year celebrations. However, terrorists don't share moral values. Our common duty is to combat terrorists' aggression.feedback

Dec 31 2016

It wasn't easy, but the hardships that we have faced have brought us together, have motivated us to open huge reserves of our potential to move forward. The main thing is that we believe in ourselves, in our strength, in our country.feedback

Dec 31 2016

Each of us may become something of a magician on the night of the New Year. To do this we simply need to treat our parents with love and gratitude, take care of our children and families, respect our colleagues at work, nurture our friendships, defend truth and justice, be merciful and help those who are in need of support. This is the whole secret.feedback

Dec 30 2016

[Obama] did what he had to do in order to send the signal and hopefully deter more fooling around, if you could call it that way, in cyberattacks or cybermisuse to influence U.S. elections and perhaps other elements of U.S. internal politics.feedback

Dec 30 2016

I would expect that the president-elect one way or another ought to be concerned about that.feedback

Dec 30 2016 - US, Russia relations

Relations between Russia and the U.S. remain an important factor in ensuring stability and security in the modern world.feedback

Dec 23 2016 - Democratic Party

The current administration and the leadership of the Democratic Party are trying to blame all their failures on external factors. (We are talking about) a party which has clearly forgotten the original meaning of its own name. They (the Democrats) are losing on all fronts and looking elsewhere for things to blame. In my view this, how shall I say it, degrades their own dignity. You have to know how to lose with dignity.feedback

Dec 23 2016

Nobody is arguing with that.feedback

Dec 23 2016

Trump understood the mood of the people and kept going until the end, when nobody believed in him. Except for you and me.feedback

Dec 23 2016 - Doping

State-sponsored doping system has never been created in Russia, it is simply not possible, and we will do everything we can to make sure such state-sponsored system of doping support never exists. That's first, and I want to say it once again. And the second – as in any other country, we have this problem and we have to admit it. But by admitting it we must do all we can to prevent use of doping.feedback

Dec 23 2016 - Trump-Putin

I hope that ... we will be able – by acting in a constructive and pragmatic manner – to take real steps to restore the framework of bilateral cooperation in different areas as well as bring our level of collaboration on the international scene to a qualitatively new level.feedback

Dec 23 2016

It is absolutely transparent and all under the control of the government. We finance some things from there.feedback

Dec 23 2016 - Aleppo

In the next stage, an agreement on a cease-fire on the entire territory of Syria should be reached and practical talks on a political settlement should start immediately after.feedback

Dec 23 2016

They are losing on all fronts, and are trying to find the culprits elsewhere. They are humiliating themselves. They must know how to lose with dignity.feedback

Dec 23 2016

The most important thing is the substance of the information the hackers have presented to the public opinion. The current administration and the Democratic Party's leadership are trying to shift the blame for all their failures to external factors. Reagan would be happy that representatives of his party win everywhere, and he would be happy for the president-elect. We are just saying that we are simply stronger than any aggressor.feedback

Dec 23 2016

It's not us who have been speeding up the arms race. We can only fight this threat efficiently if we pool our efforts together.feedback

Dec 20 2016 - Russia

I ask security services to take additional measures to ensure security inside Russia and outside it, to enhance the safety of Russian foreign missions and their staff. I ask you to step up work with secret services of other states through partner channels.feedback

Dec 19 2016 - Iran

We must know who was directing the killer.feedback

Dec 16 2016 - Aleppo

The next step is to reach an agreement on a total ceasefire across the whole of Syria. We are conducting very active negotiations with representatives of the armed opposition, brokered by Turkey.feedback

Dec 16 2016

This has nothing to do with Russia's interests. But hysteria is evoked only to divert the attention of the American public from the nature of the information that the hackers posted.feedback

Dec 16 2016

In this hyperpartisan atmosphere, at a time when my primary concern was making sure that the integrity of the election process was not in any way damaged, at a time when anything that was said by me or anyone in the White House would immediately be seen through a partisan lens, I wanted to make sure that everyone understood that we were trying to play this thing straight.feedback

Dec 16 2016

The next step is to reach an agreement on a ceasefire across the whole of Syria. We're currently in very active discussions with representatives of the opposition and there is also Turkish mediation.feedback

Dec 16 2016

I believe that joint work in economic areas will help to establish the basis needed to move to a relationship of true partnership.feedback

Dec 16 2016

That venue could be Astana. If that happens, it won't compete with the Geneva talks, but will complement them. Wherever the conflicting sides meet, in my view it is the right thing to do to try to find a political solution.feedback

Dec 16 2016 - Palmyra

The question of Palmyra is purely symbolic. Aleppo is much more important from a military-political point of view.feedback

Dec 16 2016 - Republican Party

My view is that this is not a partisan issue.feedback

Dec 16 2016 - Palmyra

Everything that is happening in Palmyra is the result of uncoordinated action. I've already said many times that to be effective in the battle against terrorism we need to unite our efforts.feedback

Dec 16 2016 - Japan

For me the most important thing is to sign a peace deal (with Japan) because that would create the conditions for long-term co-operation.feedback

You were right to take caution, Yume is a no-nonsense dog. There are many people here, with camcorders running, lights shining and cameras clicking. She is being a guard dog.feedback

The absence of a peace treaty between Russia and Japan is an anachronism left over from the past, and that anachronism should be removed. But how to do that is a difficult question.feedback

Dec 13 2016 - Trump-Putin

We understand it will not be a simple task considering the extent of degradation of the Russian-American relationship. But we are prepared to do our bit.feedback

Dec 08 2016 - Qatar

The future of our country depends on ourselves, on our hard work and the talents of all our citizens along with their responsibilities and successes we will achieve our goals.feedback

Dec 01 2016 - US, Russia relations

I certainly hope we can join forces with the US in fighting the real not imaginary threats which is international terrorism. This is exactly the task that our military is trying to solve in Syria. The terrorists have suffered great losses. The army and the navy of Russia has proved convincingly that they can work effectively far from home.feedback

Dec 01 2016 - US, Russia relations

We are prepared to cooperate with the new US administration. It is important to normalise and start to develop the bilateral relations, on the principle of equality and a mutually beneficial basis. The cooperation between Russia and US in solving local and global problems will be in the interest of the whole world.feedback

Dec 01 2016 - US, Russia relations

Russia does not need conflict neither do our partners or the international partners. Compared to others who see us as opponents, we do not seek and never look for enemies. We need friends.feedback

Dec 01 2016

There is no doubt that there is a need to stimulate lending to the real sector. The key question is what methods and resources will be used to do it.feedback

Nov 21 2016 - Peru

We are ready to freeze (oil) output at the present level. We see no harm in this for our energy sector. The energy minister is in constant contact with the leading (oil) companies, and they are ready for such work.feedback

Nov 09 2016 - Trump-Putin

During the election campaign, we heard Donald Trump's speeches, which focused on rebuilding the relationship between Russia and the United States. We understand and are aware that it is not going to be easy given the degraded state of relations between Russia and the US at the moment, unfortunately. But Russia is ready and willing to restore fully fledged bilateral relations with the United States, because it will have a positive effect on global affairs in general, taking into account the special responsibility of Russia and the US to sustain global security and stability.feedback

Nov 09 2016 - Kremlin

We heard the campaign statements of the future U.S. presidential candidate about the restoration of relations between Russia and the United States. It is not an easy path, but we are ready to do our part and do everything to return Russian and American relations to a stable path of development.feedback

Oct 27 2016

In Washington there were forces that did their best to ensure our agreements did not take off.feedback

Oct 27 2016 - NATO

New imaginary threats are being created all the time, like the so-called Russian military threat. It's of course very profitable because: people can ask for bigger military budgets in their countries, or allies can be made to bend down in some superpowers' interests, or see NATO spread to get its infrastructure: military units and weapons closer to our borders.feedback

Oct 16 2016

I would like to reassure everyone, including our U.S. partners and friends – we do not intend to influence the U.S. election campaign.feedback

Oct 16 2016

The only new thing is that for the first time the United States has recognized at the highest level ... that they themselves do it (cyber attacks).feedback

Oct 16 2016 - US, Russia relations

On the contrary, we would like to find common ground and cooperate in solving the global problems that confront both Russia and the United States.feedback

Oct 16 2016

If it takes place, it will serve just as an interim step to make another one, towards its real privatization, including by attracting strategic investors, possibly foreign ones, under state control.feedback

Oct 16 2016

This year, this way or another, the budget should receive money, and I think this is a very cautious, if not a fine-tuned plan approved by the government.feedback

Oct 15 2016

Our cooperation in the military sphere is rather successful. Russia is not only selling weapons and hardware to India but also, through our joint ventures, producing the most modern examples of the latest technology.feedback

Oct 12 2016 - Aleppo

I don't know. Is that really the role of such serious countries which aspire to conduct independent policies and be called major powers. I don't know.feedback

Oct 12 2016 - Aleppo

The French foreign minister flew from Moscow to Washington, the next day he came out with (U.S. Secretary of State John) Kerry, accused Russia of all the deadly sins, no one spoke to us or discussed anything with us, and tossed the resolution into the Security Council obviously expecting our veto.feedback

Oct 12 2016

It may sound strange to you but I personally was surprised by this government's position myself.feedback

Oct 12 2016

This privatization is carefully crafted, keeping in mind the synergy effect for obtaining the maximal gain from the point of view of budget and fiscal interests.feedback

Oct 12 2016 - Aleppo

What for? To exacerbate the situation and to whip up anti-Russian hysteria in media under their control, and to deceive their own citizens.feedback

Oct 12 2016

About a decade ago, they wouldn't mention Russia at all, because it was not even worth talking about, such a third-rate regional power and not interesting at all. Now Russia is problem number one in the entire election campaign.feedback

It's not our partners who should be offended by our veto, it's us who should be offended.feedback

Oct 12 2016 - Russia

We expected joint, constructive work with France and with other permanent members of the Security Council. But what happened?feedback
