The Russian proverb, ‘Trust, but verify’ was made famous by President Ronald Reagan during the height of the US/Soviet arms race. At the time, this was meant to suggest the need for validation, even when there was trust between parties. This phrase was very appropriate as it allowed the two superpowers to become more friendly, but left room for validation that changes were truly being made. Validation begets trust and the situation improved.
