  • We noticed the unprecedented campaign launched in Greece to defame Russia’s policy. Senior officials in Athens allow themselves to make crude accusations against our country and its leadership, they are literally competing with their like-minded people. They hypocritically speak of an “unprovoked attack” against Ukraine, for the first time since World War II, a “mass invasion” and so on.

From the Russian WQEdit

  • Even cookery books, they were also banned. Why? Because it was impossible to share borscht. Well, you can't. It should only belong to one person. To some one people, one nationality ... And so that it is common? And so that in every city and in every region every housewife could cook it in her own way? No. They don't want to compromise. So this is what we are talking about: xenophobia, Nazism, extremism in all forms...
    • Даже книги о кулинарии, они тоже запрещались. Почему? Потому что нельзя было делиться борщом. Ну нельзя. Он должен был принадлежать только кому-то одному. Какому-то одному народу, одной национальности... А так, чтобы он был общий? И чтобы в каждом городе и в каждом регионе каждая хозяйка могла приготовить его по-своему? Нет. На компромиссы идти не хотят. Так это и есть то, о чем мы говорим: ксенофобия, нацизм, экстремизм во всех видах...
