History proves that all dictatorships, all authoritarian forms of government are transient. Only democratic systems are not transient. Whatever the shortcomings, mankind has not devised anything superior.
More Vladimir Putin quotes :
I have a very positive attitude to anyone who is protecting the environment, but it's inadmissible when people are using it as a means of promoting themselves, using it as a source of self-enrichment. I don't want to name any specific examples... but often, environmentalism is used to blackmail companies.Vladimir Putin
We don't need a weakened government but a strong government that would take responsibility for the rights of the individual and care for the society as a whole.Vladimir Putin
The path towards a free society has not been simple. There are tragic and glorious pages in our history.Vladimir Putin
