RUSSIAN AND CENTRAL
"At last, Russia has returned to the world arena as a strong state - a country that others heed and that can stand up for itself."
― Vladimir Putin
"The Marxist analysis has got nothing to do with what happened in Stalin's Russia: it's like blaming Jesus Christ for the Inquisition in Spain."
― Tony Benn
"Russia is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma."
― Winston Churchill
"Even under Stalin, Soviet state power, acting through law and the courts, confronted serious limits in its efforts to govern, much less transform, its colonial Central Asian periphery.”
― Douglas Northrop
