Russia through the eyes of famous personalities (Quotes about Russia)

In the modern world politics Russia has recently turned into a controversial player. One part of the world accepts and supports its line of behaviour while the other world sees in its face a dangerous enemy whose actions and intentions are inapropriate and unacceptable. Besides all this, one cannot but admit that Russia is a unique country (just like all the others) with its original character, mysterious soul, nature and people. Whoever  has ever visited the place could not and will never remain indifferent. The experience (whataver it was but I hope mostly it was positive) is unforgettable. Here, we have gathered the most interesting sayings about Russia by famous  personalities. (We tried to avoid politics.)
