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
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.Vladimir Putin
