In an exclusive video clip released by Showtime, as it promotes its four day Putin – Stone interview series, the Oscar award winning director claimed he had credible information that Vladimir Putin has survived at least five assassination attempts.
The Russian President then implied that those five assassination attempts were successfully thwarted by his security team.
“I do my job and the Security Officers do theirs, and they are still performing quite successfully. I trust them.”
Recalling a Russian proverb, the Russian President told Oliver Stone that, “those who are destined to be hanged are not going to drown.”
Stone asks: “What is your fate sir, do you know?”
“Only God knows our destiny – yours and mine.”
“One day, this is going to happen to each and every one of us. The question is what we will have accomplished by then in this transient world, and whether we’ll have enjoyed our life?”
