  • Let me put it this way: There will never be any war between Russia and Ukraine because any person who attempts in full seriousness to undertake such an act is a criminal. What's more, I can't even imagine how big a criminal.
  • In Ukraine, there live people who are absolutely fraternal in spirit, blood and common history, a war with whom would be the worst crime you could think of.
  • If you think that we will stop in Ukraine – think 300 times. Let me remind you that Ukraine is only an intermediate stage in ensuring the strategic security of the Russian Federation.
  • Russians were not the first to attack Ukraine. Russians are not fighting the Ukrainians but the ‘Banderovitsi’ (Ukrainian nationalists) and Nazis, whom they are hostages of. The Nazis have taken control of Ukraine.
  • The New York Times published a column with the headline "Russia is a Fascist Country" authored by Yale University Professor [Timothy] Snyder. Pseudo-Professor of a pseudo-University. Snyder knows nothing, understands nothing, he is just a regular liar. They regularly claim that Russia is a fascist country. Listen, you bastards. You're offering hallmarks of a fascist state. Look at those indicators you're proposing. How are they any different from Trump's campaign? Down to the slogan "Make America Great Again". Discussions of former greatness. Donald Trump: "Make America Great Again". Cult of one leader. Visual symbols as a sign of belonging. What about Donald Trump' red hats? Mass events in support of the leader. Do you want me to play a clip of the dancing Trump? Hate speech towards a certain group of people: Look at what Trump used to say about liberals. If cretins like those those teach at Yale University... The majority of that nation are cretins. They know nothing.
  • The troops of LPR and DPR are fighting for their land. And now I have a question: What would the Ukrainian territorial defense fight for? None of it is their land.
  • We're telling people: Come to your senses. We're telling people: Remember who you are. Look at what's being done to you. Look at who conquered you! Remember your great past! Wake up, stop lying to yourselves! That is the main point. Why are they making up a language for you? You are a "Rusin". Do you need that language Zelensky is trying to speak? Look at the history that is being made up for you, the religion that is being made up for you. That's why the people are for us. Westerners say: "They don't greet you with flowers." Yes, they are, big time. Despite their fear, they're welcoming us. And they will welcome us even more when they understand that we're never leaving.
  • I don’t mind it when inept people try to rule the world, but it irritates me when they’re so nervous. If you want war with us, then declare war, so we can start swinging.
  • Vladimir Vladimirovich [Putin] clearly said and Dmitry Anatolyevich [Medvedev] clearly said, we’ll strike the decision-making centers—and those are not in Kyiv.
  • Everyone understood that after we destroy all of Ukraine’s weapons—which happened long ago, we destroyed all Soviet-made arms—the time would come to demilitarize NATO.
  • Our guys are doing their job. They’re doing it correctly.
  • Our next operation may be war with NATO.
  • And after we think about it, then there will be nuclear war.
  • When we used to speak about German culture, it appeared to be a genuine phenomenon, and then 2022 came along!
  • The German Culture Minister. Do you think that after that Government recruited those idiots, scum, louts, and scoundrels, we should talk to them about anything?
  • And what are we supposed to do now? Once again shake the dust off the Teutonic graves with the thundering march of Soviet boots? Will they never get the message otherwise?"
  • [About mobilized Russian soldiers] There are panicked calls on my phone, on Margarita’s phone, which shows that a number of people involved have forgotten how to do their jobs.
  • All of them have phones and they won't stay silent. If they’re being handed rotten things, if they have no helmets, no body armour, no one is going to hide it... I will tell you very politely: Don’t play games with people…
  • I'd really like us to attack Kyiv and take it tomorrow, but I'm aware that the partial mobilisation will take time.
  • For a certain period of time, things won't be easy for us. We shouldn't be expecting good news.
  • Those in power will have to explain themselves to the public.
  • I believe that we should reject the moratorium on the death penalty and introduce articles allowing the execution of traitors and their accomplices, terrorists and their accomplices, sponsors, and financiers, including shooting deserters who abandoned the combat order and betrayed their comrades.
  • We live in latter days. What's happening in Ukraine won't stay in Ukraine. A holy war is underway. We're fighting for the right of mankind to live in its original state, as designed by the Creator.
    Those fools who are trying to fight they aren't fighting against us, they're at war with God. In case of their victory, their end is certain.
    When I say that either we win, or the whole world will be reduced to ashes, this also has another meeting. How can humanity that fights against God continue to exist?"
  • Why was Trump out of favor? Because he is totally traditional, at least in some ways. Trump's traditional character provoked hatred.
    [On Zelensky and Biden] If you think about what's happening. It's Satanism. They're purely demonic, you can't put it any other way.
  • When people are trying to tell me about whether nuclear weapons can be used or not, I will respond to that briefly and clearly, "do you remember this part of Biblical history?" Sodom and Gomorrah?
  • De facto, Britain has entered the war. I consider Britain is now a legitimate target for us.
  • If there is no London, then we would have victory. On Britain, I said six months ago that it should be wiped from the face of the earth.
  • We'll go to heaven. Death is the end of one earthly path and the beginning of another. Don’t let fear of death influence decisions.
  • We don't have an overwhelming advantage on the front lines and since summer we're on the defensive. Our position is unfortunate.
  • I will ask for 156th time. Why don’t we say if [Ukraine is] shelling us: "Kharkiv will be wiped off the face of the earth, Kyiv will be destroyed".
  • This is jihad. This is a jihad, this is a holy war!
  • Allahu Akbar!
