Last quote about Russia

Valtteri Bottas
I think, me personally, I'm definitively surprised. As a team, coming into this weekend, we were probably thinking we'd be better than [the last race] in Bahrain, but so far it hasn't turned out to be so good. Ferrari seems to be doing something better than us, so for sure it's disappointing for us not to be on pole. We made good improvements from yesterday to today but it was not enough and we still have work to do. Tomorrow it's a different story, it's going to be a long race and, again, it's difficult to predict but I think it's going to be close.feedback

I never met Putin, I don't know who Putin is. What I did should have been done by the Obama administration a long time before I did it, and you would have had a much better – I think Syria would be a lot better off right now than it has been.”.

All quotes about Russia

António Guterres - United Nations

This means reopening and strengthening communication channels, particularly military to military, to lower the risk of miscalculation or misunderstanding.feedback

Norio Maruyama

The situation concerning North Korea is very worrying. Worrying for us, worrying for Russia, for the international community. The two leaders discussed this point very frankly. And so Prime Minister Abe asked President Putin to play a constructive role to try to apply still more pressure which is necessary for North Korea.feedback

Yevgeny Malinkin

The English were our school. Now we've lost our fathers. We've overtaken them.feedback

Piara Powar

If they don't arrest me, then in 2018, God willing, I will beat someone.feedback

Elena Bykova

I see the new generation, and I'm really surprised. They don't like drugs, alcohol. They're all in the gym.feedback

Andrei Malosolov

Believe me, the years before the 2018 World Cup will be the quietest in the history of Russian soccer.feedback

Yevgeny Berezin

There are some who like to drink and break stools over people's heads. But that has nothing to do with Okolofutbola. That's just some kind of hooligans.feedback

Michael McFaul

Of course, it is not coincidence that General Flynn was placed next to President Putin. Flynn was considered a close Trump advisor. … Why else would they want him there?feedback

Dmitry Peskov

We continue to consider that all countries need to refrain from any kind of actions that lead to an increase in tension in this already restive region and call for respect for the sovereignty of Syria.feedback

Vladimir Putin

In my opinion, and in the opinion of the prime minister [Abe], the situation on the Korean peninsula has unfortunately got a lot worse. We call on all governments involved in regional matters to refrain from using belligerent rhetoric and to strive for peaceful, constructive dialogue.feedback

Vladimir Putin

The situation on the Korean Peninsula was discussed separately [at the Russian-Japanese talks] as in our joint opinion with the prime minister [of Japan] it has, unfortunately, deteriorated seriously. We are urging all the states involved in regional affairs to refrain from military rhetoric and seek a calm and constructive dialogue.feedback

Petr Iliichev

Neither you nor Western colleagues said a single word about what you are doing to improve the situation.feedback

Reed Brody - Human Rights Watch

When recently, in an interview with Fox News, they asked Donald Trump about Russia, he replied that our country is not so innocent. If we were honest, it was a statement with a sense of reality. No country that exercises the kind of power the United States exercises, whether the United States, Russia or China, will have an entirely ethical international policy.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

I think the way we've raced in the last two and a half years, everything is straightforward. Sometimes it was close, sometimes it was too close as well -- I remember China last year from my side, that was never ideal -- but you try to fight your teammate as well as all the others, but more than anything I think we know and we understand that we're racing for Ferrari.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

I think he probably didn't have the races he deserved. At the last race obviously the start and the first lap cost him a lot, otherwise I'm sure he would've been on the podium. I see exactly what happens [from inside the team] and things didn't go 100 per cent in his direction so far... but I don't think there's any doubt inside the paddock that he's one of the most talented drivers we have. I don't think anybody else could go to WRC and perform at the level he did, just come back and be right up to the pace again.feedback

Sebastian Vettel - Ferrari

I don't think there's anyone who doubts his skills or his talent but, as I said, you need to have a lot of things coming your way. If you look back last year, I had some races where things didn't come way -- it's up and down but usually throughout the season it sort of equals out.feedback

Maria V. Zakharova

Moscow condemns acts of aggression against Syria and regards them impermissible and running counter to international law. We are urging one and all to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria, a UN member-state.feedback

Matthias Meyer

There are many caves where stone tools are found but no bones.feedback

Eske Willerslev

In general (it) is very disturbed and unless you can show that's not the case you have no idea of the date of the findings.feedback

Antonio Rosas

This work represents an enormous scientific breakthrough. We can now tell which species of hominid occupied a cave and on which particular stratigraphic level, even when no bone or skeletal remains are present. We now have to learn to make best use of the soil sediment which until now was discarded, and to discover that it is teeming with DNA sequences from the organisms that occupied that land.feedback

Cai Jun

The real goal of the United States and South Korea in deploying Thaad is as a move in the game of the United States' global antimissile defense system. This will further tighten the Asia-Pacific antimissile barrier enclosing China and Russia, and will weaken their strategic capacities – something we adamantly oppose.feedback

Alexei Chaliy

The power stations were designed for Siemens turbines. In 2014 I warned there would be problems. Over the past 20 years, Russia has lost the ability to produce turbines of that capacity. And so it ended badly. They have started to build the power stations ... but there are no turbines. There is an option to re-do the design.feedback

Alessandra Stanley

Soviet spies in raincoats and trilby hats may seem a little dated, but in the era of Vladimir Putin, they are not entirely far-fetched.feedback

Jim Himes

We're going to want to get through our entire witness list independent of what the Senate may do. The Judiciary Committee over there obviously has questionable jurisdiction over people like Clapper and [former CIA Director] John Brennan.feedback

Richard Burr

The unfortunate thing is we do a majority of our work behind closed doors, versus the public process that seems to go on the other side of the Hill. But we're satisfied with our progress.feedback

Tom Cole

Mike did what Mike does: he takes care of problems. It will be professional, it will be transparent, everybody will have open input, and at the end of the day if there's anything there, we'll know what it was and he'll be completely forthright and honest with whatever he finds.feedback

Chuck Schumer

I think the Senate committee should move more quickly, it's gone very slowly.feedback

Nikola Popovski

Russia can have its own interests, it is legitimate. But this question can be put forward to any of the current member states of the European Union too. It is not something that it is exclusive to our region or let's say candidate and potential candidate countries from the Balkan states.feedback

Rik Ferguson - Trend Micro

We cannot say for sure whether this was directed by the Russian government, but the group behind the attacks certainly appears to pursue Russian interests.feedback

Sam Hassan

I find it very ironic that he asked them to do some sort of hacking into Hillary Clinton's email and then WikiLeaks leaks out all sorts of her email.feedback

Jason Chaffetz

I see no data to support the notion that Gen. Flynn complied with the law. It does not appear to us that [permission] was ever sought. As a former military officer you simply cannot take money from Russia, Turkey or anybody else, and it appears as if he did take that money. It was inappropriate and there are repercussions for the violation of law.feedback

Dmitry Peskov

What [hacking] groups? From where? Why Russia? This slightly reminds me of accusations from Washington, which have been left hanging in mid-air until now and do not do their authors any credit.feedback

Alexander Litreev

Using this information, human rights defenders can help this person in some way, like sending him a lawyer. When I see that people are being detained and experiencing violence at the hands of the authorities, and people can't do anything about it, I think this must be fought against.feedback

Jean-Marc Ayrault

We have definite sources that the procedure used to make the Sarin sampled is typical of the methods developed in Syrian laboratories. This method bears the signature of the regime, and that is what has allowed us to establish its responsibility in this attack. Only the regime has such air assets.feedback

Jason Chaffetz

If that money was received by General Flynn, and we believe that it was, that money needs to be recovered. That final determination again will have to come from the Department of the Army, as well as the Department of Defense, but as a former military officer, you simply cannot take money from Russia, Turkey, or anybody else. And it appears as if he did take that money, it was inappropriate, and there are repercussions for the violation of law. Personally I see no information or no data to support the notion that General Flynn complied with the law.feedback

Dmitry Peskov

Cutting the power supply to the Luhansk region is yet another step by Ukraine to push those territories away.feedback

Rod Rosenstein

I don't know the details of what, if any, investigation is ongoing, but I can certainly assure you if it's America against Russia, or America against any other country, I think everyone in this room knows which side I'm on.feedback

Jason Chaffetz

General Flynn had a duty and an obligation to seek and obtain permission to receive money from foreign governments. It does not appear to us that that was ever sought, nor did he ever get that permission. If that money was received by General Flynn, and we believe that it was, that money needs to be recovered.feedback

Jason Chaffetz

As a former military officer, you simply cannot take money from Russia, Turkey, or anybody else, and it appears as if he did take that money. It was inappropriate. And there are repercussions for the violation of law. I see no information or no data to support the notion that general Flynn complied with the law. He was supposed to seek permission and receive permission from both the secretary of state and the secretary of the Army prior to traveling to Russia to not only accept that payment but to engage in that activity. I see no evidence that he actually did that.feedback

Toto Wolff - Mercedes

It's a totally different kind of track this weekend in Sochi and, in this season with these new regulations, you can't take anything for granted. The trophies of previous years don't guarantee that we'll be winning in Russia when you have a very fierce competitor like we do in Ferrari. We'll take it one step at a time, start the weekend well and hopefully have a good result on Sunday.feedback

Maxim Eristavi

Moscow’s foes love to criticize its poor human rights record. So why aren't they speaking up about persecution of LGBT people?feedback

Frank Dieter Freiling

We strongly condemn the Ukrainian authorities' decision to impose a travel ban on Julia Samoylova as we believe it thoroughly undermines the integrity and non-political nature of the Eurovision Song Contest and its mission to bring all nations together in friendly competition.feedback

George D. O'Neill Jr.

For me and many others on the right, Russia is not the main focus, but a component of years of effort to advance a more realistic and restrained U.S. foreign policy.feedback

Martin Heinrich

We need to pick up the pace. It is incumbent on us to have the resources to do this right and expeditiously, and I think we need additional staff.feedback

Ron Wyden

For weeks I've called for the committee to move more quickly and more transparently, particularly on the key issue of following the money in this investigation. For this investigation to be successful, the committee must recognize the enormity of the job and provide the resources to tackle it.feedback

John Nicholson

We continue to get reports of this assistance. We support anyone who wants to help us advance the reconciliation process, but anyone who arms belligerents who perpetuate attacks like the one we saw two days ago in Mazar-e Sharif is not the best way forward to a peaceful reconciliation.feedback

Dmitry Peskov

These are utterly erroneous allegations, and rather primitive. Traditionally, Russia is ready and willing to build good relations with those who think the same way and who believe that the current differences can be settled only through dialogue, by taking into account mutual interests. It is wrong to say that Russia shows favoritism towards anyone among the candidates. Russia has never interfered, doesn't interfere and will never interfere into electoral processes in other countries. It is a very important election on the European continent.feedback

Antonio Barroso

If he wins, French policy towards Russia will remain relatively stable.feedback

Georg Zachmann - Bruegel

Emmanuel Macron is not considered a Russia hawk. But he is not ignoring the challenge arising from Russia. More importantly, Macron wants to strengthen the EU, which runs against the interest of the Kremlin to weaken it. All other candidates were openly against or at least less enthusiastic about the EU. If Macron succeeds, the EU might continue to be able to defend its values on human rights and international law - even in times when the U.S. takes a more appeasing stance towards the Kremlin.feedback

Antonio Barroso

A Le Pen victory would mean a considerable shift in France's attitudes towards Putin given the National Front's strong links with Russian political and economic interests.feedback

Angela Merkel

The conflict parties must also finally implement the long-agreed ceasefire. And there, the Russia-supported separatists, who are illegally and violently occupying parts of Ukrainian territory bear a particular responsibility.feedback

Abdelkader Lecheheb

The Russian market is very important for our country. Morocco is the second biggest partner for Russia in the Arab world and on the African scale. This third installment is held under the banner of the diversification of our products here in Russia.feedback

Mark Toner

The United States urges Russia to use its influence with the separatists to allow the OSCE to conduct a full, transparent, and timely investigation. This tragic incident makes clear the need for all sides - and particularly the Russian-led separatist forces - to implement their commitments under the Minsk agreements immediately.feedback

David Golumbia

It was like the picture suddenly came into focus. There is this worldwide, rightwing, nationalistic movement that is counter to the EU, and this is present in the US and Europe and Russia, and we are just starting to understand how they do all seem to be in communication and co-ordination with each other.feedback

Aaron Banks

Not a single penny of Russian money has been put into Brexit. It's not possible to run that entire country [Russia] as a pure democracy. I don't give a monkey's about the Electoral Commission.feedback

Gergely Kovacs

It is a pro-government and pro-Russia protest and it is against the NGOs and against literally everything which is not the Fidesz (party).feedback

Mike Pompeo

(Wikileaks) directed Chelsea Manning to intercept specific secret information, and it overwhelmingly focuses on the United States. It's time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: A non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.feedback

Dmitry Peskov

The issue of deployment and redeployment of troops inside the country does not fall into the category of public affairs. Any country in the process of building its own security reacts to changes in the international situation.feedback

Steven Meserve

I was getting on the ferry heading back from Amsterdam. The carrier was partway open and the cat decided to jump by himself onto the ferry.feedback

Steven Meserve

No one has beat his score for the whole season. They are supposed to be a very stocky and muscular cat.feedback

Roman Seleznev

I plead, pray and beg your honor for mercy. This decision made by the United States government clearly demonstrates to the entire world that I'm a political prisoner. I was kidnapped by the U.S. Now they want to send a message to the world using me as a pawn. This message that the U.S. is sending today is not the right way to show Vladimar Putin of Russia, or any government in this world how justice works in a democracy.feedback

Steven Mnuchin

In consultation with President Donald J. Trump, the Treasury Department will not be issuing waivers to U.S. companies, including Exxon, authorizing drilling prohibited by current Russian sanctions.feedback

Marco Rubio

While a waiver to allow business with prohibited Russian entities may be in Exxon-Mobil's interest, it would clearly not be in America's national security interest.feedback
