  • Our political leaders often talk about Russia taking an independent path, but they like to live like people in the West.

  • I don't know why, but Putin has made a ritual out of humiliating Medvedev. Sometimes I even feel sorry for the prime minister.

  • I am different from Putin, that Russia should not isolate itself. Everything that happens in our country is justified through Syria or Ukraine. But when one's own citizens only make 300 euros, one can't have much clout in foreign policy.

  • Since Russia has the largest number of illegal immigrants, second only to the US, and immigrants from Central Asia bring in drugs, I'm calling for a visa requirement for all those wonderful people from Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

  • Anyone who commits a xenophobic crime has to be brought to justice.

  • Putin has reversed all the liberalizing reforms carried out by his predecessor.

  • Xenophobia is fairly widespread in Russia.

  • I'm concerned with protecting the legal system.

    "Pussy Riot Trial 'Reminds Me of the Inquisition'". Interview with Matthias Schepp, August 20, 2012.
  • When men are arrested without any legal basis and for political reasons, it's merely a routine, everyday occurrence in Russia, and hardly anyone has any sympathy.

  • Politics is traditionally a male domain in Russia.

    "Pussy Riot Trial 'Reminds Me of the Inquisition'". Interview with Matthias Schepp, August 20, 2012.
  • People often say that I represent people who earn a lot of money. Of course, a person who is well-educated and affluent is more likely to support me than Vladimir Putin. But that doesn't automatically mean that the others are against me.

  • Putin needs to terrorize his own elite. He is more afraid of those in his own surroundings than any protests; there are people there who are at least as critical as I am because they see up close that the system doesn't work. He wants to silence them.

  • Putin and his advisers don't understand the power of public opinion in the West. They believe in conspiracy theories and that someone is orchestrating a malicious campaign against Russia. They don't realize that even conservative politicians have to react when newspapers and artists express their concern on such an issue.

  • People hate politicians. And I can understand why.

  • For 17 years, elections in Russia have followed the same pattern: Nobody criticizes Putin, nobody runs a real election campaign, the whole process takes place quietly over a period of two months. The Kremlin blocks every alternative to Putin. He doesn't want a candidate who will travel through the country and speak loudly about Russia's problems.

  • I've been reading this little book. It's called the Russian constitution. And it says that the only source of power in Russia is the people. So I don't want to hear those who say we're appealing to the authorities. Who's the power here?

  • I'm on the very blackest part of the black list.

  • Politics is traditionally a male domain in Russia. Until now, women have only been accessories. Now, female protest groups are emerging - not because men came up with the idea, but through their own efforts. That's something new for Russia.

    "Pussy Riot Trial 'Reminds Me of the Inquisition'". Interview with Matthias Schepp, August 20, 2012.
  • People aren't really afraid of my views. They are just afraid of the word 'nationalism.'

  • As far as I know, the people who are against my candidacy now have the upper hand in the Kremlin. They say: Who knows what the election result will be? We already made that mistake once. And they are also afraid of all the things I would say if they let me run.

  • We've grown accustomed to injustice in Russia. People are constantly being arrested unlawfully.

  • No opposition politician has ever taken responsibility for his or her election failures.

  • We should fulfill the Minsk Protocol. The main reason for the sanctions is that Russia broke a taboo: It triggered a war in Europe. Crimea is a problem, but the most painful part of the sanctions is tied to the war in the Donbas. As soon as Russia takes real steps to prevent shots from being fired there, this part of the sanctions will be lifted.

  • Consistency for me is everything.

  • Everyone says corruption is everywhere, but for me it seems strange to say that and then not try to put the people guilty of that corruption away.

    "Alexei Navalny: Russia's new rebel who has Vladimir Putin in his sights" by Tom Parfitt, January 15, 2012.
  • Without any doubt, I am striving for power.

    "Net Impact". Interview with Julia Ioffe, April 4, 2011.
  • Certain people have wanted to put me behind bars for a long time now. That's part of my work. If I were afraid, I couldn't do what I do.

  • I encourage all my colleagues to run for office themselves. But it has become extremely difficult in this system to become a prominent opposition politician. I no longer have any rivals to have a debate with. I need competition. And the people will soon tire of me. They say: Navalny, It's always just Navalny. We want to see someone new.

  • People don't believe in positive changes anymore.

  • Unfortunately, people expect a Russian opposition politician to be a manic libertarian who thinks the oligarchs are great, who isn't interested in the problems of retirees and who believes the invisible hand of the market will resolve everything.
