Compare and contrast

There's this sort of mindset:

“The EU is, and must aspire to become even more, an example of a "soft power" founded on norms and values such as human dignity, solidarity, tolerance, freedom of expression, respect for diversity and intercultural dialogue, values which, provided they are upheld and promoted, can be of inspiration for the world of tomorrow.”

- 2007 European Commission communication

And then there's this sort:

“We are not afraid of... a Cold War”

- Dimitry Medvedev

[On the US] "Comrade wolf knows who to eat. He eats without listening to anybody and it seems he is not ever going to listen."

- Vladimir Putin

And now:

"Someone in the United States especially created this conflict with the aim of making the situation more tense and creating a competitive advantage for one of the candidates fighting for the post of US president."

- Vladimir Putin
