  • Alexander Novak
    Alexander Novak “We are working on mechanisms to prohibit the use of a price cap instrument, regardless of what level is set, because such interference could further destabilise the market. We will sell oil and petroleum products only to those countries that will work with us under market conditions, even if we have to reduce production a little.” 15 hours ago

    Scot Marciel “Beyond the re-appointment of Kyaw Moe Tun in the UN, Russia is being difficult to work with [in terms of reaching a consensus in the international community to pressure the regime] and is publicly backing the junta. China seems to be consolidating its support for the regime as well. It's different from 2021. They provide tangible support for the junta, whereas those who support the resistance and the anti-coup movement are more rhetorical in their support.” 16 hours ago
  • Chen Gang
    Chen Gang “By now it should be clear to the Chinese leadership that it is unrealistic to hope to eliminate COVID-19 entirely through lockdowns and repeated testing, given the Omicron variant's high transmissibility and the large number of asymptomatic cases. The recent protests themselves have not dented Xi's political authority, but unless it adapts, the government may encounter a growing political backlash against its COVID-19 policy.” 16 hours ago

“We will witness the formation of a new bloc to counterweight the US, but not a 'Russia-centric' one, as the Kremlin tries to present in, but in the format of 'Beijing and its comrade's'.”

“They cheer-lead on behalf of each other, offering moral and political support to their partner when their interests align. But China and Russia are strategically autonomous actors, whose influence on each other's behaviour is limited and indirect at best. And rather than being propelled into a new orbit of cooperation, the long-term outlook for the Russia-China relationship is not promising. The Xi and Putin relationship is primarily based on the self-interests of two strategically autonomous powers and a fundamental difference is that China is invested in global order. China wishes to play a more dominant role, but it does not wish to demolish that order. Putin, however, is focused on disruptive power and a complete overthrow of the international system. That is why Putin has resorted so readily to military force - in Georgia, Syria, Ukraine and, more covertly, in Iraq, Libya, Mali and the Central African Republic. Russia, but not China, has invested in the value of waging war. He [Putin] and those around him identify Russia's ability and will to wage war as a comparative advantage that few others, apart from the United States, possess.”

“When you look at Russia, it has the first, second and third highest reserves globally of practically everything. From energy to diamonds, to fresh water, to rare earths and other minerals, it's an extremely rich country. And despite its current estrangement from the West, the Kremlin was far from being geopolitically isolated. Russia has some powerful friends, such as China, India, and Iran, and some increasingly powerful acquaintances, such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Brazil, and much of Africa. On balance, therefore, I suspect that Russia will prevail.”

“Russia cherishes its strong ties with Latin America, Asia and Africa, and is ready to offer partners and allies the most modern types of weapons - from small arms to armoured vehicles and artillery, combat aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles. Almost all of them have been used more than once in real combat operations. We are talking about high-precision weapons and robotics, about combat systems based on new physical principles. Many of them are years, or maybe decades ahead of their foreign counterparts, and in terms of tactical and technical characteristics they are significantly superior to them. I want to emphasise that Russia stands for the broadest comprehensive development [and] military-technical cooperation. Today in conditions of confidence in the emerging multipolar world, this is especially important. We highly appreciate the fact that our country has many like-minded allies and partners on different continents. These are the states that do not succumb to the so-called hegemon. Their leaders show a real masculine character and do not bend.”

“The countries around Serbia have closed the channel of communication by refusing to authorise the overflight of the plane of Sergey Lavrov who was headed to Serbia. The Russian delegation should have arrived in Belgrade for talks. But the EU and NATO member countries closed their airspace.”

“Of course, we are now seeing attempts to shift the responsibility for what is happening on the world food market, the emerging problems in this market, onto Russia. I must say that this is an attempt, as our people say, to shift these problems from a sick to a healthy head.”

“Russia is not going to collapse … but in terms of the impact on the Russian state as a powerful state able to sustain foreign military and political adventures, that's a very different matter. In terms of Russia's place in the world, it will be hard for the Russians - and certainly while Putin is in power - to not be considered essentially a pariah state. His legacy will be as someone who from arrogance and hubris […] has basically wasted years of rebuilding Russia's military, political, economic and soft power capabilities in the world.”

“Today they are trying to cancel a whole thousand-year culture, our people. I am talking about the gradual discrimination against everything linked to Russia… a tendency unfolding in a number of Western countries.”

“There are some around the world...who say that we're better off making accommodations with tyranny.... I believe they are profoundly wrong. To try to renormalize relations with Putin after this, as we did in 2014, would be to make exactly the same mistake again, and that is why Putin must fail. This is a turning point for the world and it's a moment of choice. It's a choice between freedom and oppression.”

“If there was any illusion that we could one day rely on our Western partners, this illusion is no longer there. What the Americans want is a unipolar world which would not be like a global village but like an American village - or maybe like a saloon where you know the strongest calls the shots. We will now have to rely only on ourselves and on our allies who stay with us. We are not closing the door on the West - they are doing so.”

“Russia is being threatened with arrests of assets of Russian citizens and companies abroad - just like that, without any sanctions, in a carpet fashion, out of spite. This must be responded to in a quite symmetric manner. With arrest of assets of foreigners and foreign companies in Russia based on country principle. And maybe, with nationalization of property of people registered in unfriendly jurisdictions. Like the EU, EU member states and a number of singing-along states of the Anglo-Saxon world that will take part in this. Thankfully, we have vast experience and we have a law on this issue. A harsh one. So the most interesting stuff only begins.”

“Russia wants to see Ukraine not as a neutral country, but more like a friendly country. Ukraine is not the only issue of importance for the Kremlin. This is also about how Russia wants to position itself in the world. So this is a geopolitical conflict focusing on Russia's posture and vision.”

“There's very little enthusiasm within NATO for bringing in Ukraine. There is, however, a consensus on the need to support [Ukraine] politically, economically, and, to the extent they can, in security terms. Russia may seek certain commitments over Ukraine, and we're probably not willing to provide those. But above all, Russia wants to feel as if it has a seat at the table and is taken seriously as a great power, which its nuclear status certainly gives it. There has been a tendency not to take Russia very seriously over the past decades, rightly or wrongly.”

“The more trouble Moscow can stir up in the Balkans, the more it is able to slow down the integration of the region into the European Union (EU) and NATO.”

“There is no grand conspiracy against the West. What this is, is a classic great power relationship, meaning it's driven by common interests, rather than shared values. By supporting each other, China and Russia gain critical dividends including reinforcing the legitimacy and stability of their respective regimes. Defence cooperation allows Moscow to project Russian influence on the world stage while Beijing is able to gain access to Russia's advanced military technology and operational experience. The relationship also allows Moscow to fill the technological gap left by the withdrawal of Western companies in Russia following sanctions imposed in the aftermath of the annexation of Crimea. And Chinese investment in technology has been absolutely critical to the realization of Russia's Arctic LNG projects.”

“Some even dare to say publicly that it is allegedly unfair that Russia owns the wealth of a region such as Siberia. Only one country does. Everyone wants to 'bite' us somewhere or 'bite off' something of ours, but those that would do this should know that we will knock out the teeth of all of them so they aren't able to bite... And the key to this is the development of our armed forces.”
