    всё равно, всё же

    Hi!

    What is the difference between всё равно and всё же?

    Whether you like it or not, I'm going anyway. — Нравится тебе это или нет, всё равно ухожу.
    Whether you like it or not, I'm going anyway. — Нравится тебе это или нет, всё же ухожу.

    Are they the same words in Russian?

    "всё равно" is more strong.

    "Ему всё равно" = "He doesn't care", literally "All these things are equal for him (and equal to nothing)".
    So, "я всё равно ухожу" is something like "whatever (did/will) happen (it's all the same - nothing), I'm going".

    "всё же" is more like "I have taken your opinion and actions into account, but they still/though don't change my mind".

    Нравится тебе это или нет, всё равно ухожу. — Like it or not, I am leaving anyway. Person B may disagree, but person A is still leaving.
    Нравится тебе это или нет, всё же ухожу. — Like it or not, I am still leaving. Person B may disagree, but person A is leaving in spite of certain circumstances or someone's will. "Я всё же ухожу" itself contains an opposing meaning, so generally you wouldn't need the "Нравится тебе это или нет" part.
