Pulikovsky's ally, Colonel-General Gennady Troshev, the Hero of Russia, commented on the death of Pulikovsky's son "He could have easily saved his son from a mission in Chechnya. I know some people, quite a lot, to my regret, who readily went to every expedient to help their children, nephews and brothers dodge service in a hot spot. General Pulikovsky was another kind of person. He served to the Homeland honestly and never looked for a cushy job. He demanded the same from other people, too, including his own son. "
However, Pulikovsky himself said that he had done everything he could to save his son from Chechnya, but Alexey repeatedly asked his сommanders to send him to Chechnya .

On 16 March 2001 Pulikovsky said he had challenged Vladivostok mayor Yuri Kopylov to a duel and left it to Kopylov to choose weapons.

"
Pulikovsky believed it had been Kopylov's initiative. On 20 March 2001 Kopylov made a public apology to Pulikovsky on the air of Krasnodar radio station. Kopylov said that Vladivostok city administration had not been informed that those banners had been put up in the streets of the city.

Plenipotentiary Pulikovsky was on very good terms with Roman Abramovich, the governor of Chukotka. He highly appreciated Abramovich's organizational skills.
Pulikovsky stated "To be honest, I don't even care about the way Abramovich got Sibneft. The main thing is that people of Chukotka treat him with great respect. He is well-liked and admired there. He does not visit Chukotka often. So what? He hired great managers to rule the region. It's like business. You needn't be at your workplace all the time to run your own business.''
