People aren’t really afraid of my views. They are just afraid of the word ‘nationalism.’
I think very poorly of United Russia. United Russia is the party of corruption, the party of crooks and thieves.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The questioning is a stupid formality aimed exclusively at preventing us from speaking at the demonstration.
Politics is traditionally a male domain in Russia. Until now, women have only been accessories. Now, female protest groups are emerging – not because men came up with the idea, but through their own efforts. That’s something new for Russia.
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.
Consistency for me is everything.
When we get a chance to take part in elections, I am ready to fight for leading positions, including in the presidential vote.
I’m not going to appeal to violence or aggression – of course not.
We need a real tent city in the heart of Moscow.
I’m on the very blackest part of the black list.
Without any doubt, I am striving for power.
We’ve grown accustomed to injustice in Russia. People are constantly being arrested unlawfully.
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 am not ready to back away from my views.
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’m not afraid and these 15 days convinced me there is nothing to fear. Let them be afraid instead.
Nobody wants a political prisoner, but a political emigrant is no problem.
People don’t believe in positive changes anymore.
People hate politicians. And I can understand why.
I’m only sort of a politician.
