About the use of Russian nuclear weapons:

If someone decided to destroy a nuclear strike Russia, we have a legitimate right to respond. Yes, for mankind it will be global. But I still as a citizen of Russia and the Russian President want to ask the question: why do we need such a world, if there is not Russia?

of accession of the Crimea:

I think that someone deliberately brought us to a point once where we had to do (to join the Crimea — ed. “Of the”). Few expected that we act quickly and boldly. Our opponents have developed the right tactics, to a certain extent its objectives in the tactical plan to achieve. But I think in the long we will still win.

About the conversation with the wife of the President of the United States:

Told the summit in Hamburg Melani trump and wife of the Italian Prime Minister about Russia, Siberia, Kamchatka, fishing, fauna, tigers and bears that are found there. As usual in such cases, I FIB a little, but when you talk about fishing, how can you not FIB.

Those who dropped somewhere poison themselves and swallow it in the end, themselves this poison poison.

the Full version interview Putin American journalist the Kelly Magin the Kremlin website published on the morning of 10 March. The interlocutors were already familiar in June 2017 Kelly led the plenary session of the Petersburg economic forum (in some point totally forgetting about the presence on stage of other politicians, except for Putin), and then she got the opportunity to record a great interview with the Russian President tete-a-tete. Even then conspicuous signature style of the presenter: to get a clear answer, could she repeat the same question five times, often interrupted the conversation. And exasperated, the Russian President out of the usual balanced state. Their new meeting was held on 1 March after Putin announced the message to the Federal Assembly. The conversation continued the next day in Kaliningrad. Many of those who were acquainted with the full version of the interview, described the situation on screen a conversation with the deaf-blind. And led the conversation, as an example of what a normal dialogue between Russia and the US is now impossible.

About the new Russian weapons:

the United States withdrew in 2002 from the ABM Treaty, forced us to begin work on new weapons systems. We said so to our partners, they said, “Okay, do what you want”. So we did “please Come to shave”.

I think Russia, like, impossible to keep. You have to understand it. Look, you North Korea can’t keep. What are you talking about?

About the expected interference in U.S. elections:

I don’t care, I absolutely do not care because they do not represent the interests of the Russian state (commenting on “the list Muller,” in which 13 the Russians are accused of influence on the us election — ed. “Of the”).

Well, even if it was Russian, but it was not government officials. Well Russian, so what? Russian 146 million people, so what? (…) Does anyone believe that Russia, being somewhere thousands of miles away, with some two or three Russian, which I know you don’t know, intervened and influenced the elections? You yourself is not funny?

About the statements of his press Secretary

Do you think I of each control? Out [Dmitry] Peskov, sitting opposite, my press Secretary, he sometimes carries a “Blizzard”, I see on TV and think: what is he telling? Who put him on it?

Kelly: once you hear that it (restaurateur Eugene Prigogine — ed. “Of the”) of the accused, you spoke with him? Putin: Even that was not enough! I have so many things to do. Kelly: He’s your friend, he just accused. Putin: did You not hear what I said? He’s not my friend. I know this person, but it is not listed in the list of my friends. Have I not said that?

About accusations of Syrian government use of chemical weapons:

We all well know, understand and even uninteresting. And I want to say: bored, girls.

As for crime, go back to raqqa, please, and buried at least the bodies that are still in shambles and ruins after the application of appropriate massive strikes on residential neighborhoods. And investigate, then.

About the Russian opposition:

they (including Alexei Navalny — ed. “Of the”) no programme of development of the country. They have that there is a positive and that I basically like? Is that they reveal problems and it’s good actually, it is correct, and it should be done. But for the positive development of the country, this is not enough, not nearly enough. Because only focus on the problems, it’s not just a little, and it is even dangerous because it may lead to certain destruction, we need creation.

About the future of Russia without Putin:

Why do you think that after me to the authorities in Russia must come to the people who will be ready to destroy all that I have done in recent years? Perhaps, on the contrary, it will be people who want to strengthen Russia, to create for her future is to create a development platform for the next generation.

About the situation in Russia after disintegration of the USSR:

Remember the famous film, very nice, “Gentlemen of fortune”? One of the episodes when the main character enters the camera, and the second, some kind of deal, said to him: “Your place at parashi”.

how inflated the internal Russian conflicts:

the Director of the FSB was reading another intercept between the leader of one of the gangs with the curators from abroad. Now remember, imagine, still remember: “Russia is weak as never before. Now or we will strike and will do so-or never.” And they gave us plenty.

We would have definitely pushed by way of the Yugoslav disintegration. And in this case, the suffering of Russian and other peoples of the Russian Federation would be disproportionately greater than the losses we have suffered during the difficult events of the late 90’s, early 2000-ies in the fight against international terrorism in the Caucasus.
