->''"It was clear that the actions in Crimea would lead to sanctions, capital flight, and a deterioration of Russia’s reputation, but nobody supporting the aggression thought twice. The imperial horn has been sounded. But we are [[{{Ruritania}} a Third World kleptocracy]] hiding behind imperial symbols. There are no resources for a true imperial revival."''

->''“Putin now talks more about ideology and about the system of values and the spiritual origins of Russia. In this sense, he, too, is a person of tardy development. He [[EnsignNewbie became President unexpectedly]]. He had no preparation for this role. He had to respond to challenges in the course of things. At first, he had to reconsolidate the state. Now he has inspired a new energy that can be drawn from the national character and the system of values that are rooted in our culture...it is comparable among his predecessors in the twentieth century only with Stalin.”''
-->--'''Dmitri Kiselyov''', head of ''[[PropagandaMachine Russia Today]]''

->''"In his 2004 State of the Union address ''[...]'' Vladimir Putin, then Russia’s president, announced his intention to investigate nonprofit human rights organizations 'obtaining funding from influential foreign or domestic foundations.' Accepting international funding is standard operating procedure for many nongovernmental organizations the world over, but Putin’s speech insinuated that those who criticized the government and profited from foreign funds were [[LawfulEvil disloyal to Russia and somehow dangerous]]. Within a few years, Putin and his henchmen have succeeded in creating an environment in which it is nearly impossible for [=NGO=] to operate successfully, thereby severely crippling the possibility of a robust political opposition."''

->''"[[SlouchOfVillainy Slouching in a fancy chair]] in front of a dozen reporters, Putin squirmed and rambled. And rambled and rambled. He was [[MoodSwinger a rainbow of emotion:]] Serious! angry! bemused! flustered! confused! So confused... Gone was the old Putin, the one who loves these kinds of press events. He'd come a long way from the painfully awkward gray FSB officer on Larry King, a year into his tenure. He had grown to become the master of public speaking... That Putin was not the Putin we saw today. Today's Putin was nervous, angry, cornered, and paranoid, periodically illuminated by flashes of his own righteousness. Here was an authoritarian dancing uncomfortably in his new dictator shoes, squirming in his throne."''

->''"After a few years in office, [[UsefulNotes/BorisYeltsin Yeltsin]] had soiled his reputation as a reforming democrat. There was his strategy of brutal overkill in Chechnya and the way he empowered, under the banner of privatization, a small circle of billionaire oligarchs to soak up Russia’s resources and help run the country. 'Democracy' was roundly known as ''dermokratiya''—'[[DemocracyIsBad shitocracy]]'...Buoyed by the sharp rise in energy prices, Putin was able to do what Yeltsin had not: he won enormous popular support by paying salaries and pensions, eliminating budget deficits, and creating a growing urban middle class. It was hardly a secret that Putin had also created his own oligarchy, with old Leningrad pals and colleagues from the security forces now running, and robbing, the state’s vast energy enterprises. This almost unimaginably corrupt set of arrangements, which came to be known as [[PrivatelyOwnedSociety Kremlin, Inc.]], outraged nearly everyone, but the relative atmosphere of stability, in which tens of millions of Russians enjoyed a sense of economic well-being and private liberty, provided Putin with a kind of authoritarian legitimacy."''

->''"Comparing Putin’s aggression in eastern Ukraine to Hitler’s 'protection' of Germans living in Czechoslovakia, as HillaryClinton did a few months ago, is [[GodwinsLaw stretching things a bit]]. But Putin’s British apologists, on both the left and the right, are sticking faithfully to the script laid down by the man who had the dubious distinction of [[HeadInTheSandManagement signing the Munich agreement.]]\\\
A number of British right-wingers have long admired the Russian president for his [[PatrioticFervor unapologetic assertion of Russian power]], his promotion of 'traditional' values (see [[HeteronormativeCrusader gay baiting]]) and his cynicism when dealing with [[HobbesWasRight 'decadent' democratic governments]]. Alex Salmond and Nigel Farage, both leaders of burgeoning nationalist parties (Scottish and English respectively), have named the butcher of Chechnya as the one politician they 'most admire,' with Farage describing Putin’s cynical manipulation of the conflict in Syria as 'brilliant.'"''

->''"While America is focused on Iraq and problems at home, Russia is carving out chunks of Ukraine for itself and all the toothless old men of Europe can do is wave sanctions at Putin. They seem to be forgetting that whole BRICS thing, that a new power bloc is emerging in resistance to the Globalist powers of the EU. What's more, it seems that Germany is interested in cutting its own deals with Putin, perhaps a signal it has no confidence in its own EU project... it would be [[UsefulNotes/BorisYeltsin Yeltsin's]] kleptocracy that gave rise to Putin and by extension this new power bloc that is threatening to go off the dollar and [[ChinaTakesOverTheWorld adopt the Yuan as the new reserve currency.]]"''
