Quote of the Day
Russia is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.

If you don't know how great this country is, I know someone who does; Russia.

I took a speed-reading course and read War and Peace in twenty minutes. It involves Russia.
I don't have any comment on who the people of Russia choose to be their leaders.
Well, I think both Russia and China have a very strong aversion to interference in internal affairs.
China is starting an English-speaking television network around the world, Russia is, Al Jazeera. And the BBC is cutting back on its many language services around the world.
Well first of all, tell me, is there some society you know of that doesn't run on greed? You think Russia doesn't run on greed? You think China doesn't run on greed? What is greed?
Obama does not represent America. Nor does he represent anything what our forefathers stood for. This country is basically built on an attitude. It's a way of life. It's not because you're born here. It's not that you're supposed to take from those who have and give to those who haven't. That kills a country. It killed Russia.
And I love the hate mail I get, the unsigned, misspelled letters I get telling me to go back to Russia or wherever.
For us in Russia, communism is a dead dog, while, for many people in the West, it is still a living lion.
Homosexuality in Russia is a crime and the punishment is seven years in prison, locked up with the other men. There is a three year waiting list.
Nobody and nothing will stop Russia on the road to strengthening democracy and ensuring human rights and freedoms.
The secret of politics? Make a good treaty with Russia.
Otto von Bismarck
The Marxist analysis has got nothing to do with what happened in Stalin's Russia: it's like blaming Jesus Christ for the Inquisition in Spain.
My parents had a normal life in Russia and they could have easily kept living a normal life, working and raising a child in Russia.
Whenever I have friends over, we end up eating and talking and losing track of time, and, once in a while, singing karaoke. It reminds me of the family meals we had in Russia, which always lasted a very long time. That's a tradition I miss.
Of course, everyone knows my story of being born in Russia and moving to the United States at 7. For a few years people would say, 'Well, she's living in the United States, but she's Russian.'
I was not extremely patriotic about Mother Russia. I played their game, pretending. You have to deal with, you know, party people, KGB. Horrifying.
There was this mountain village in Russia where my music was getting in on some German radio station. I remember this because music used to get up to Saskatchewan from Texas. Late at night after the local station closed down.
Wow, bad news. Mr. Obama now hates Israel because the Israelis want to build 1,600 apartments in their own capital city, Jerusalem. Russia hates Israel, too. So do the Europeans. So does Ban Ki-moon, a Korean who is secretary-general of the UN.
For us in Russia communism is a dead dog. For many people in the West, it is still a living lion.
My father was an immigrant who literally walked across Europe to get out of Russia. He fought in World War I. He was wounded in action. My father was a great success even though he never had money. He was a very determined man, a great role model.

Today's difference between Russia and the United States is that in Russia everybody takes everybody else for a spy, and in the United States everybody takes everybody else for a criminal.
If it hadn't been for the Cold War, neither Russia nor America would have been sending people into space.
Today when we say the West we are already referring to the West and to Russia. We could use the word 'modernity' if we exclude Africa, and the Islamic world, and partially China.
There is a Western world. There is America. There is Great Britain and Germany and France and Russia and China and other nations. I doubt that there is one country amongst those I mentioned which has a desire to see Iran, with its fundamentalist, Islamic, extremist government, possessing nuclear weapons.
I still call myself a communist, because communism is no more what Russia made of it than Christianity is what the churches make of it.
