The editor Luciano Fontana asked Putin: “Is there an action that you most regret in your life, something that you consider a mistake and wouldn't want to repeat ever again?”
Putin pondered the question for a little while before he responded: “I'll be totally frank with you. I cannot recollect anything of the kind. It appears that the Lord built my life in a way that I have nothing to regret.”
I didn't think I could despise this man more than I already did, but he has now plunged me to previously unchartered depths.
