Putin and his advisers don’t understand the power of public opinion in the West. They believe in conspiracy theories and that someone is orchestrating a malicious campaign against Russia. They don’t realize that even conservative politicians have to react when newspapers and artists express their concern on such an issue.
I really hate the people in power. I hate them with every fiber of my being. That is what drives me in almost everything I do.
Everyone needs to understand that my work addresses existing problems, and one of the crucial problems in Russia today is corruption.
I think very poorly of United Russia. United Russia is the party of corruption, the party of crooks and thieves. And it is the duty of every patriot and citizen of our country to make sure that this party is destroyed.
Nobody wants a political prisoner, but a political emigrant is no problem.
When men are arrested without any legal basis and for political reasons, it’s merely a routine, everyday occurrence in Russia, and hardly anyone has any sympathy.
We’ve grown accustomed to injustice in Russia. People are constantly being arrested unlawfully.
The party of swindlers and thieves is putting forward its chief swindler and its chief thief for the presidency. We must vote against him, struggle against him.
Consistency for me is everything.
People aren’t really afraid of my views. They are just afraid of the word ‘nationalism.’
