Did he really say this?

“At least in Russia, you cannot just go and tap into someone’s phone conversation without a warrant issued by court. That’s more or less the way a civilized society should go about fighting terrorism.”  Vladimir Putin

  1. Happy New Year, Carolyn! Putin does have a tendency to utter total nonsense with a perfectly straight face. The truth is that theoretically, by law, he is accurate. However, the old Russian saying is “The law is like a shaft – the way you turn it, that’s how it comes out” (it actually rhymes in Russian). Granted, any law of any country is open to interpretation, but Russian laws have always been so blatantly disregarded that they are not even worth considering.
