  • Vladimir Putin
    Vladimir Putin “I said, including in Pyongyang, that we then reserve the right to supply weapons to other regions of the world. Taking into account our agreements with [North Korea], I do not exclude this either.” 6 hours ago
  • Gershon Baskin
    Gershon Baskin “There is no real conflict between the state of Israel and Lebanon. The conflict is all around the core issue of Israel and Palestine. This is why international attention needs to be focused on finding the diplomatic, political end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and, first and foremost, the war in Gaza. The escalating fighting and bold rhetoric between Israel and Hezbollah is cause for concern. It's a very dangerous picture right now with both sides being quite bold in their remarks. A great deal of ignorance here of each side threatening to hit the other going way beyond what they've done in the past eight and a half months. It's extraordinarily dangerous for the people of Israel and the people of Lebanon if this war escalates anymore.” 12 hours ago
  • Akiva Eldar
    Akiva Eldar “Right now, it seems that for the first time after many years, there is an ongoing escalation between the government headed by Netanyahu and his entourage of reporters, analysts who are actually on his - unofficially - on his team, that are smearing the chief of staff. It's a kind of apocalyptic scenario that the army spokesman - who is reporting to the chief of staff - is just undermining Netanyahu's doctrine, which is: We do have to put an end to the Hamas government once and for all in Gaza. What Hagari is saying is challenging Netanyahu and saying, actually … you are hallucinating.” 13 hours ago
  • Daniel Hagari
    Daniel Hagari “This business of destroying Hamas, making Hamas disappear - it's simply throwing sand in the eyes of the public. Hamas is an idea, Hamas is a party. It's rooted in the hearts of the people - whoever thinks we can eliminate Hamas is wrong.” 13 hours ago

“Putin's proposal had shown the real path to peace. If you want to save the world, discuss Vladimir Putin's proposal ... Only those who do not want peace can't see, can't understand it.”

“The conditions are very simple. As soon as they declare in Kyiv that they are ready for such a decision and begin a real withdrawal of troops from these regions [including Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia], and also officially announce the abandonment of their plans to join NATO - on our side, immediately, literally at the same minute, an order will follow to cease fire and begin negotiations. I repeat, we will do this immediately. Naturally, we will simultaneously guarantee the unhindered and safe withdrawal of Ukrainian units and formations.”

“We have the right to develop good relations with our neighbours and this should not cause concern for anyone. North Korea is a friendly country for us, with whom we are developing bilateral relations. We will do that further. The potential for development in our relations is very deep.”

“For the first time, the U.S. is shifting towards something that begins to look like ... an effort to set up a global financial embargo on Russia. The message here is really one to banks in China and Turkey and the UAE and elsewhere outside of the G7 they face sanctions for continuing to engage in transactions with the big Russian banks and other sanctioned Russian banks. This would likely spark a major retreat by those banks from Russia. That financial pullback, in turn, is probably going ... to complicate the flow of goods from countries that are continuing to trade with Russia.”

“Just like in our relations with Italy, we do not see any Russophobic stance when working with the South Korean government. Neither are there any weapons supplies to the conflict zone. We highly appreciate that.”

“The first thing I want to say is of course we are against terrorism in all its manifestations, against attacks against civilians - at any place and in any country. But what is happening now in Gaza in response to the well-known terrorist act in Israel does not really look like a war, it is some kind of total destruction of the civilian population. We believe this is a result of US policy. They monopolized the peace process. They pushed aside all previously established mechanisms for collective efforts to solve this extremely difficult problem.”

“You should not make Russia out to be the enemy. You're only hurting yourself with this, you know? They thought that Russia wanted to attack NATO. Have you gone completely crazy? That is as thick as this table. Who came up with this? It is just complete nonsense, you know? Total rubbish.”

“If you send your soldiers, your experts or your instructors to the Ukrainian land in order to teach Ukrainian soldiers how to target and kill Russians better, they will naturally become a legitimate target.”

“If they consider it possible to deliver such weapons to the combat zone to launch strikes on our territory and create problems for us, why don't we have the right to supply weapons of the same type to some regions of the world where they can be used to launch strikes on sensitive facilities of the countries that do it to Russia? We will think about it.”

“We will work with any president the American people elect. I say absolutely sincerely, I wouldn't say that we believe that after the election something will change on the Russian track in the American politics. We don't think so. We think nothing that serious will happen.”

“We are experiencing the early stages of a systematic activation of Russian sleeper cells worldwide. This is an unprecedented phenomenon in Western post-war history. Russia's ultimate aim is military advantage. Currently the Russian sabotage campaign appears to be aimed primarily at disrupting the military supply chain from the West to Ukraine. Front-line states Poland and Romania, from whose borders all war materiel enters Ukraine, are at obvious risk, but earlier stages in the supply chain are equally critical. That includes Norwegian logistics facilities, ports on the US eastern seaboard, and military instructors in Darwin, Australia. A typical example is the port of Alexandroupolis in Greece, which the US Department of Defense credits as providing Washington with 'strategic access' to its Ukrainian ally. Until recently, the port in this small northern Greek city was far removed from the epicentre of global geopolitics. As a result, security had to be elevated drastically within weeks.”

“Ukraine could not use the long-range weapons without significant NATO support. For instance, long-range precision weapons cannot be used without space-based reconnaissance. Final target selection or launch mission for Western systems need to be made by highly skilled specialists who rely on this reconnaissance data. So, these officials from NATO countries, especially the ones based in Europe, particularly in small European countries, should be fully aware of what is at stake. They should keep in mind that theirs are small and densely populated countries, which is a factor to reckon with before they start talking about striking deep into the Russian territory.”

“Civilians are dying there [on border regions such as Belgorod]. It's obvious. They are shooting directly at the city center, at residential areas. And I said publicly that if this continues, we will be forced to create a security zone, a buffer zone. That is what we are doing.”

“Russians don't have the numbers necessary to do a strategic breakthrough. More to the point, they don't have the skill and capability to do it, to operate at the scale necessary to exploit any breakthrough to strategic advantage. They do have the ability to make local advances and they have done some of that.”

“In a broader sense, we are working to contribute to the development and prosperity of Russia and China by enhancing equal, mutually beneficial economic and humanitarian cooperation, and strengthen foreign policy coordination in the interests of building a just multipolar world order. All this is the key to a future success of our comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination for the new era. The partnership between Russia and China is always based on equality and mutual trust, mutual respect for sovereignty, and consideration of each other's interests. President Xi Jinping, a wise and visionary leader, plays a special and prominent role in the development of bilateral relations. We first met back in March 2010, and we have been seeing and calling each other regularly ever since. President Xi maintains a respectful, friendly, open and at the same time business-like style of communication.”

“We have said many times that whoever is quicker to master the newest means of armed combat wins. We have to be one step ahead. We have everything we need for this, and much has been done, but we need to double and triple our efforts in this area.”

“We value the stability of Russia-China relations. The one word I can use to describe our relationship is 'trust.' That's very important because if you look at the cooperation with the Western countries, we don't have, and we have never had, mutual trust. But with China, we have a mutual trust. Our cooperation during the last two years developed very fast. The two countries could deepen cooperation in finance and banking, as well as in sci-tech and investment.”

“This is an unexpected, but, unfortunately for Ukraine, a very effective move. Unlike many top Russian officials, Belousov has not been involved in corruption scandals and has a reputation as a workaholic technocrat and a devout Orthodox Christian. Putin wants him to clean the Augean stables of the defence ministry so that military spending spearheads the resurgence of Russia's economy. The effectiveness of Russia's military-industrial complex will be boosted, and instead of being a 'black hole' of budget spendings, the defence ministry may become a driver of economic growth, when war spendings stimulate the growth of Russia's GDP.”

“Shoigu's replacement with a (relatively experienced and apparently competent) economist [Andrei Belousov] pretty clearly signals Putin believes victory in Ukraine will come via outproducing (and outlasting) Ukraine and her Western allies. He's preparing for many more years of war.”

“Things are not going according to Putin's plan, but he will endlessly rotate the same small group of loyalists. Putin has always feared to bring new people to the positions of authority - even in the best of times, they must have been nobodies with no own perspectives. Toward the end of his rule, even more so.”

“With an economist taking over the Defence Ministry, and the old minister taking up a policy and advisory role, the technocrats are in the ascendant. The goal though is not peace, but a more efficient war. As Putin digs in for the long term, with the 'special military operation' now being the central organising principle of his regime, he knows he needs technocrats to keep his war machine going.”

“This indicates that the Kremlin is not seeking an exit from Ukraine, but once to extend their ability to endure the conflict as long as possible. Russia is very limited [on] how much they can increase scale, due to economic deficiencies. However, they can maintain a certain level of attritional warfare. And are likely hoping to do that longer than Ukraine can.”

“Today, the winner on the battlefield is the one who is more open to innovation, more open to implementation as quickly as possible. It is natural that at the current stage the president [Vladimir Putin] decided that the Ministry of Defence should be headed by a civilian [Andrei Belousov].”

“On the Ukrainian side, the panic is growing on the frontline. And this is first-hand information that there, on that side, the panic is growing. It is very important for us now to maintain this dynamics. It is very important not to stop and continue fulfilling [the tasks of the special military operation].”

“In proportion to the threats posed by the United States and its allies, we will continue to improve the composition and structure of the armed forces and increase the production of the most popular weapons and military equipment. We will increase the intensity of attacks on logistics centres and storage bases for Western weapons.”

“The decision to provide aid to Ukraine was expected and predictable. This will further enrich the United States and further ruin Ukraine, with more Ukrainians killed due to the fault of the Kyiv regime. If the United States confiscates frozen Russian assets, it will have to answer for it. Any time limits here will be unlikely. And we will do it in the way that best suits our interests.”

“Since the fall of Avdiivka in Ukraine's east on February 17 [2024], its forces have oozed forward, swallowing several villages, as Ukrainian forces have performed tactical retreats. Here we are in April [2024], and [the Russians] are oozing out. Why is that? I think it's because that's the best the Russians can do. They do not have the capability to knock Ukraine out of the war. Russia lacked the ability to equip large armoured formations that could move rapidly, with supporting artillery, engineers and logistics. I don't think it exists. That's why I feel fairly confident that the mission for [Ukrainian] general Oleksandr Syrskyi for the next several months is to stabilise this as much as he can to buy time for Ukraine to grow the size of the army, to rebuild the defence industry of Ukraine, as well as give us time to find more ammunition for them. I think of 2024 as a year of industrial competition. So the army has got to buy time.”

“Russia surprisingly stands with the rest of the international community in that it does not want an escalation following Iran's attack on Israel. This could impede Russian interests region. It could embroil Iran in a war that would mean that Iran would be hardly capable of sending more weapons to Russia, and of course, it could engulf Russian troops in Syria and Lebanon in a possible escalation of this conflict into a regional one. Among the Russian establishment are pro-Israeli elements who would not want to have a confrontation with Israel. Israel has not joined sanctions [against Russia], it's not dedicated as an enemy country, Israel is not supplying weapons or military technology to Ukraine, so Russia would want to keep this status quo.”

“Since the start of the year, 403 square kilometres [156 square miles] … have come under our control. Russian armed forces continue to push Ukrainian units westwards. Russian forces had captured five settlements, four in Donetsk and one in Zaporizhia, over the last month.”

“He [Putin] makes it more than clear that he is beyond the reach of rational arguments and the values ​​of humanity. And he definitely doesn't want to negotiate. If Putin wins in Ukraine, our security and international order will be at risk. Ukraine's support is our own guarantee of security.”
