The tension and escalation resulting from the Ukrainian crisis continues, with propaganda on both sides, but in this BBC story there is a quote from Russian President Vladimir Putin which wins the prize. The article reports that Russia has condemned the new Nato and US moves (to deploy heavy weapons - including tanks, armoured vehicles and artillery - in a number of European nations). President Putin accused Nato of "coming to our borders".

Excuse me Vlad, but we are not coming to your borders; your borders are coming to us!
