Putin says he is “Too Trusting”

In an exclusive interview with Bloomberg Television to air tomorrow, Vladimir Putin, the Russian prime minister and former president, will say that his greatest fault is being “too trusting.”

I have heard Mr. Putin accused of many things, but I suspect nobody has even considered him “too trusting.” One wonders how paranoid Russia would be if he thought he was ‘trusting enough’.

I guess we can be thankful he didn’t go for the ultimate interview cliché and say he was “too enthusiastic.”

    I wonder what the exact Russian word was that was translated into English as “Trusting”! Perhaps a mistranslation. I can’t imagine a KGB agent being too trusting.
