“Ha egyszer kiszabadul a soviniszta dzsinn a palackból, az nem csak a Nyugat ellen irányulhat. Otthon is találhat célpontokat, mint a nemzeti kisebbségek és a vendégmunkások milliói a mai Oroszországban. Ahogy egy közép-ázsiai nagykövet kérdezte Moszkvában orosz barátjától:
- Mit műveltek ti a nektek dolgozó embereinkkel? Harcos iszlamistaként térnek haza...”
Walter Laqueur, Putinism: Russia and Its Future with the West

“Megbízható közvélemény-kutatások szerint Oroszországban manapság mindössze 15%-nyian vallják magukat ateistának. És a megkérdezettek kétharmada gondolta úgy, hogy a vallásnak nagyobb szerepet kéne játszania az orosz életben. De csak egy csekély töredékük mondta, hogy megpróbál a keresztény elvek szerint élni. És mindössze két-három százalékuk látogatta rendszeresen az istentiszteleteket.”
