About Vagit Alekperov:

Politics are close to me, but there are different ways of participating in politics.
I can't afford to be indifferent to politics, but I don't have personal ambitions.
I am also one of those persons who were transformed, who grew out of the Soviet system and transformed myself into the new Russia.
Gas consumption is growing everywhere.
In the Soviet Union I was the head of all oil production. And you know in the Soviet Union, you didn't get that job unless you were really worth it.
I am a normal guy.
I'm not an actor who appears on the stage and gives people advice on how to live or what to do and entertains them. It is not my specialty.
It is impossible to divide the interest of a country and a company that works on its soil.
