I’m only sort of a politician.
Everyone says corruption is everywhere, but for me it seems strange to say that and then not try to put the people guilty of that corruption away.
I’ve been reading this little book. It’s called the Russian constitution. And it says that the only source of power in Russia is the people. So I don’t want to hear those who say we’re appealing to the authorities. Who’s the power here?
I think very poorly of United Russia. United Russia is the party of corruption, the party of crooks and thieves.
I’ve always seen my campaigns against corruption as political work of a purer form than what opposition leaders usually do. All they do is hold roundtables and release political statements, which is all well and good. But there are concrete things that need to get done in order to achieve the basic goal of every opposition politician.
Without any doubt, I am striving for power.
I am not ready to back away from my views.
I’m not afraid and these 15 days convinced me there is nothing to fear. Let them be afraid instead.
