  • 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
    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 understand and respect Turkey's concerns about ensuring its own security. We believe this is Turkey's legitimate right. At the same time, we call on all parties to refrain from steps that could lead to the destabilisation of the overall situation.”

“We have interfered, we are interfering and we will continue to interfere - carefully, accurately, surgically and in our own way, as we know how to do. During our pinpoint operations, we will remove both kidneys and the liver at once.”

“The movement of ships along the security corridor is unacceptable, since the Ukrainian leadership and the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine use it to conduct military operations against the Russian Federation. Under the current conditions, there can be no question of guaranteeing the security of any object in the indicated direction until the Ukrainian side accepts additional obligations not to use this route for military purposes.”

“I hope that in today's situation, President Joe Biden will have more opportunities to understand who gives orders and how. This situation is very disturbing. The difference is that in the distant 1962, Khrushchev and Kennedy found the strength to show responsibility and wisdom, and now we do not see such readiness on the part of Washington and its satellites. The readiness of Russia, including its president, to negotiate [on Ukraine], it remains unchanged. We will always be ready to listen to what proposals our Western partners have to de-escalate tensions.”

“We're quite satisfied because we raised the awareness. I don't mind people saying that Russia is crying wolf if this doesn't happen because this is a terrible, terrible disaster that threatens potentially the whole of the Earth.”

“We have seen that negotiations and peace agreements with Russia simply do not work. Russia has no need for them. If Russia feels it is losing Ukraine and that the regime of [Russian President Vladimir] Putin is losing the confidence of global public opinion and of Russian public opinion, then I think they will sit down at the negotiating table. But at the same time, if an agreement is signed that is a half measure and does not include some sort of strict control over its implementation, then I no longer have any illusions the Russian Federation would abide by it.”

“If you remember, President Putin tried to initiate talks with both NATO and the United States even before the special military operation. Putin was open to negotiations when a document was almost agreed on between Russian and Ukrainian [negotiators]. So in that respect, nothing has changed. The position of the Ukrainian side has changed… Ukrainian law now prohibits any negotiations.”

“The new measures [martial law in annexed areas] will mean more restrictions on the movement of people. It will mean the military and local administrations will have the right to do what they want in terms of how people move around or restrict them from gathering.”

“The introduction of troops into a direct confrontation with the Russian army is a very dangerous step that could lead to a global catastrophe. I hope that those who speak of this have enough sense not to take such steps.”

“Putin is saying he is not bluffing. Well, he cannot afford bluffing, and it has to be clear that the people supporting Ukraine and the European Union and the Member States, and the United States and NATO are not bluffing either. Any nuclear attack against Ukraine will create an answer, not a nuclear answer but such a powerful answer from the military side that the Russian Army will be annihilated.”

“It seems to me that the Americans have been participating de facto in this war for a long time. This war is being controlled by the Anglo-Saxons. Officials including White House national security spokesman John Kirby had said the United States was open to talks but that Russia had refused. This is a lie. We have not received any serious offers to make contact.”

“There is no doubt. This is an act of terrorism aimed at destroying critically important civilian infrastructure. This was devised, carried out and ordered by the Ukrainian special services.”

“The beginning of the Russian invasion did not take place under a unified command, as there were five different army groups each leading autonomous operations. That will change under Surovikin's [Sergey Surovikin] leadership of the war. The reason it was not possible to have a unified command of all the Russian forces was the distance and lack of information technology to put together all of the command and control facilities and capabilities. What we are seeing now is one person and one headquarters is going to plan out and direct the operation. But it is also a signal that from now on the operation will concentrate on one specific area. It may be Luhansk, it may be Donetsk, it may be in the south. What we are seeing is a shrinking of the operation of Russia.”

“I consider myself completely innocent, and since our state refuses to comply with its own laws, I refuse to comply with the measure of restraint imposed on me as of 30 September 2022 and release myself from it.”

“There have been a lot of soldiers from these settlements already. Many Kumyks have been to the war. And some have been killed, and there were a lot of men who refused to fight. Some of them only just returned from the war and now they are being mobilized again. They understand it will be very hard for them if they are sent back. Their mothers, wives, and sisters know perfectly well how that could end. So a conflict is inevitable. The alarm surrounding the mobilization has exacerbated underlying tensions between the Kumyks and the ethnic Avars who also inhabit the area. The Avars and Kumyks in the Babayurt and Khasavyurt districts are almost equal in number. But there are many Avars in the administrations and among the law enforcement and security agencies. Everything is superimposed on an old territorial conflict that has already become a political one. Mobilization is sending people off to war, everyone understands that," Sokolov added. "If the military commission comprises Avars, and the mobilized soldiers are Kumyks, that just raises the tensions.”

“In my personal opinion, more drastic measures should be taken, right up to the declaration of martial law in the border areas and the use of low-yield nuclear weapons.”

“The way that Putin speaks about Ukraine, it is clear that for him this is an existential problem. For him, if Russia doesn't win in Ukraine, there won't be a Russia. Russia is demonstrating that it is ready to use any means at its disposal to achieve its strategic goals. Including nuclear weapons.”

“We will face attacks from all sides, and their objective will be to dis-balance and take us apart. We are not dynamic, we act with inertia, and much of what we say often contradicts what we do.”

“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'.”

“Even before the war, Russia needed China more than China needed Russia. After the war began, this dependence only got stronger. Russia is completely cut off from the global technologies market, and only China is left.”

“We're coming to a point right now where I think Putin is going to have to revise what his objectives are for this operation. It's pretty clear right now that he's … not going to be able to do what he initially intended to do. The Russians planned for an occupation, not necessarily an invasion, and that has set them back. He's [Vladimir Putin] coming to a decision point. What that decision will be we don't know. But that will largely drive how long this conflict lasts.”

“I have the feeling we are still far away from peace. I would be lying if I would say it could happen soon. I have no illusion; at the present moment the chances of a peace deal are minimal. Even a ceasefire is not in sight.”

“The military operation continues and it will continue until the goals that were originally set are achieved. Of course any actions of the military that they perform as part of the special operation are reported to the Supreme Commander.”

“If today or tomorrow changes are not made in the conduct of the special military operation, I will be forced to go to the country's leadership to explain to them the situation on the ground. I'm not a strategist like those in the defence ministry. But it's clear that mistakes were made. I think they will draw a few conclusions. We have our men out there, fighters prepared specifically for such situations. 10,000 more fighters are ready to join them. We'll reach Odesa in the nearest future.”

“I don't think that the Russian explanation on this particular issue [Vladimir Putin claiming that almost all the Ukrainian grain shipped under a UN-backed deal to ease a global food crisis is reaching rich European nations] reflects the reality on the ground. I think the Russians are feeling a growing exposure to Ukrainian attacks in recent days, and also the Europeans are increasing pressure on Russia, so I think the Russian leadership might have decided to find a way to inflict damage [given] this growing assault. We should see [this] as part of a larger geopolitical game. It's part of a tit for tat [situation]. I find the idea that the Ukrainian ships are targeting nations other than the ones in the Global South somehow fabricated.”
