Quote to remember:
"Friends, why include electricity, when you get up at three o'clock in the morning to go to the bathroom? Keep on the nightstand next to the bed, a flashlight."
"Some people sing in the shower while standing in the water for half an hour. No, guys, three minutes in the bathroom — more than enough. I counted three minutes — and you do not stink."
"How long will we tolerate applications of foreigners who come to us and say that in Venezuela there is a dictatorship, and its president — a tyrant? Anyone who does so, shall be expelled from the country."
"Thank you, President (to Putin — PC) Thank you, brother, you know, I feel in Russian at home."
