The Russian Embassy in the USA: “We emphasize once again: Russia is not going to attack anyone. The practice of moving troops on our own soil is our sovereign right. We call for an end to hysterics and not to escalate tension around the Donbass problem. And the main thing is not to push the “hot heads” in Kyiv to new provocations.”
Volodymyr Zelensky : “What, in fact, is the news? Hasn't this been reality for 8 years now? Didn't the invasion start in 2014? Has the threat of a large-scale war appeared only now? This danger is not one day. And they didn't get bigger. There was more excitement around them. And now they are actively attacking not our land, but your nerves. So that you have a constant feeling of anxiety. All our citizens, especially the elderly, need to understand this. Exhale and calm down. Do not run for buckwheat and matches. What should you do? Only one thing: to keep calm, cool head, self-confidence, in our army, in our Ukraine. <...> And I am sure that in my New Year's address I will say: “Dear Ukrainians! Well, did I say? We are great!" We didn't panic. They were not provoked. We were calm, strong and welcome the next New Year. No panic. Without horror. Hope it's virus-free. And I sincerely believe - without war.

However, one must be prepared for the possibility that diplomacy will fail... Aggression against Ukraine will entail serious consequences for Russia.”

Sergey Lavrov : “As a gesture of goodwill, I changed the configuration of troops in the Chernihiv and Kiev regions, but this was not appreciated. Immediately there was a production in Bucha.

Sergey Lavrov : “Zelensky puts forward an argument: what kind of Nazism can they have if he is a Jew. I may be wrong, but Hitler also had Jewish blood. The wise Jewish people say that the most ardent anti-Semites are usually Jews. “The family has its black sheep,” as we say.”

Mikhail Piotrovsky , director of the Hermitage: “On the one hand, war is blood and murder, and on the other, it is the self-assertion of people, the self-assertion of the nation.

Well, we were all brought up in the imperial tradition, and the empire unites many peoples.”

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine: “The explosions in Yelenovka <Olenivka>, which led to the death of <dozens of captured> Ukrainian defenders, are a deliberate provocation and an indisputable act of terrorism on the part of the armed forces of the occupier. According to the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, this was done by mercenaries from Wagner PMC. The organization and implementation of the terrorist act were not coordinated with the leadership of the RF Ministry of Defense. The main purpose of the terrorist attack is to conceal the facts of the total theft of funds allocated for the retention of Ukrainian prisoners of war. It is known that on August 1, a commission from Moscow was supposed to arrive at the “object”.

Dmitry Chistyakov , pensioner of the Ministry of Emergency Situations: “Enough bloodshed! Do not be fooled by the phrase that “we will never know the whole truth anyway! It's not so clear!" In a world where every step is filmed on an iPhone, and every store has a security camera, oblivion will not work. I pretty soon realized what it was at my second Chechen one - and therefore I am not a member of any veteran organization. War is a monster unworthy of exaltation, it is always a savory set of war crimes.
Dmitry Kuleba , head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry: “Let's first change the situation at the front, and then we will talk with Russia.

Whatever Russians they are...send them back to Russia. Then they will understand. They will say, “This [war] has nothing to do with us.

Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Alexander Fomin : “The Kiev authorities do not limit themselves to any moral or legal norms.

Donald Trump : “Putin could not attack Ukraine if it was me. Ukrainians could give up Crimea. We could have said 'OK, we won't join NATO' and have a country because I think Putin wanted to make an agreement.”
Olga Stefanishyna , Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine: “Once upon a time, we wanted to join NATO in order to become part of the collective security system and prevent a big war. Today the situation is different. A full-scale war continues on the territory of Ukraine, during which NATO as an organization has nothing to offer us - we work more individually with the allied states, and they themselves are more inclined towards bilateral cooperation.
Mikhail Podolyak : “The massive shelling of Ukraine on Independence Day is another manifestation of the helplessness and terrorist nature of Russian barbarians after six months of shame and defeat. Is it still not clear that an attempt to intimidate Ukrainians is an absolutely losing idea? Better think about the final ‘goodwill gesture’.”
Vladimir Zelensky : “What is the end of the war for us? We used to say: peace. Now we are saying: victory... And we do not sit down at the negotiating table out of fear, with a gun to our heads. And we will raise our hands only once, when we celebrate our victory. All over Ukraine. Because we do not trade our lands and our people. For us, Ukraine is the whole of Ukraine. All 25 regions, without any concessions or compromises.”

Municipal deputies of St. Petersburg: “We believe that President Putin's decision to start a self-defense zone harms the security of Russia and its citizens.

Alla Pugacheva : “I ask you to enroll me in the ranks of foreign agents of my beloved country, for I am in solidarity with my husband, an honest, decent and sincere person, a real and incorruptible patriot of Russia, who wishes the Motherland prosperity, peaceful life, freedom of speech and an end to the death of our guys for illusory goals that make our country a pariah and make life difficult for our citizens.”

Viktor Orban, Prime Minister of Hungary : “The war in Ukraine may continue until 2030. Ukraine may lose 1/3 or 50% of its territory. The war would have been local, but the West intervened and made it global. By imposing restrictions, Europe is shooting itself in the foot.”
Vladimir Putin : “Politicians in Europe have to convince their fellow citizens to eat less, wash less often, and dress warmer at home. And those who begin to ask fair questions “actually, why is that so?” — are immediately declared enemies, extremists and radicals.”
Volodymyr Zelensky : “Our state has always offered Russia to agree on coexistence on equal, honest, worthy and fair terms. Obviously, with this Russian President, this is impossible.

Vladimir Putin : “They got air and on my command at the expense of“ three ”. One two Three! Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!"
October. "Move your brains!"
Anton Krasovsky: “It was necessary to drown such <children> in Tisin. He said that "Muscovites occupied" - and immediately you throw it straight into a river with a turbulent current. There <in the Carpathians> each hut is called Smerekova hut. Straight into this Smerekov's hut to hammer and burn.

Dmitry Peskov : (about the borders of the annexed regions). “Partly the clarification has already come, I will tell you in a less legal language. LPR and DPR - 2014 borders. Kherson and Zaporizhia - we will continue to consult with the population of these regions on the borders.
G7 Statement : “The G7 strongly condemns and unequivocally rejects Russia’s illegal attempt to annex Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions of Ukraine in addition to the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.

UN General Assembly : "Russia's illegal actions regarding the illegal referendums held on September 23-27, 2022 in the Donetsk, Zaporozhye, Luhansk and Kherson regions of Ukraine, and the subsequent attempt to illegally annex these regions have no legal force and are not grounds for any change in status these regions of Ukraine.

Vladimir Putin : “Any alternative point of view is declared in the West as subversive propaganda and a threat to democracy, everywhere they see the machinations of the Kremlin. “Whatever comes from Russia is now all the machinations of the Kremlin. Are we all that powerful? This is some kind of nonsense, to which they have slipped. You can't blame everything on the intrigues of the Kremlin. Move your brains!"
FSB of the Russian Federation : “The organizer of the terrorist attack on the Crimean bridge was the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, its head Kirill Budanov, employees and agents. Citizens of Ukraine Mikhail Vladimirovich Tsyurkalo, born in 1975; b., citizens of Georgia Inosaridze Sandro, a broker named "Levan" and a citizen of Armenia Terchanyan Artur, born in 1985"

Ekaterina Shulman : “In connection with the entire observed wedding in Malinovka, I have one question: why did you rewrite the constitution, scatterbrained? With such and such a military fortune, which accompanies us, it was prudent to wait. Well, this is the basic law, and not Notes at the head, not all the events of the day need to be entered there.
Margarita Simonyan : “If we manage to lose, The Hague, conditional or concrete, is even waiting for a janitor who sweeps the paving stones inside behind the Kremlin wall.

The scale of the catastrophe that our country will turn into if we manage to do this [lose] is unimaginable.”

Yevgeny Prigozhin (about the defector Nuzhin, who was killed with a sledgehammer): “As for the sledgehammer, this show shows that he did not find happiness in Ukraine, but met unkind, but fair people. It seems to me that this film is called "Dog - dog death." Excellent directorial work, looks in one breath. I hope no animals were harmed during filming."
Andrey Loshak , documentary filmmaker: “Russian missiles are plunging Ukraine into darkness. Russia itself has long been living in darkness, now stubbornly dragging Ukrainians into it, who are desperately resisting. After the introduction of sanctions on energy resources, darkness became the main item of Russian export. ... There is not a single idea how to make this world a better place. ... No matter how many bombs the Russian army drops on the energy system of Ukraine, the country will have a bright future, and the Russians will face an endless bad trip, a long and painful plunge into the heart of darkness.”
Dmitry Medvedev : “Against us today is part of a dying world. This is a bunch of crazy Nazi drug addicts, people drugged and intimidated by them, and a large pack of barking dogs from the western kennel. With them is a motley pack of grunting gilts and narrow-minded inhabitants from the collapsed Western empire with saliva flowing down their chins from degeneration. They have no faith and ideals, except for obscene habits invented by them and standards of doublethink implanted by them, denying the morality bestowed on normal people. Therefore, having risen against them, we have acquired sacred power.
Volodymyr Zelensky : “If someone offers us a way that will help return Crimea to the country by non-military means, then I will only be for it. If a possible solution does not provide for the fact that all the Russian military will leave the territory of Crimea, then there is no need to waste time on this.”

Valery Fadeev , head of the Human Rights Council: “The Nobel Peace Prize has ceased to be, firstly, any significant prize, and secondly, it has ceased to be a peace prize, it has finally discredited itself with today's decision. I would like to advise the Russian “Memorial” to refuse this award in order to preserve at least a particle of good memory about itself.”
Vladimir Putin : “Maximum composure, concentration of forces is now required from counterintelligence agencies, including the military. It is necessary to strictly suppress the actions of foreign intelligence services, to quickly identify traitors, spies and saboteurs.”

Dmitry Medvedev : “The freaks who screwed up daily wish death to their compatriots and their country ... Traitors who hate their country so much that they call for its defeat and death should be considered as hostis publicus, enemies of society ...
