Russian President Putin Tells Oliver Stone That He Has Escaped Multiple Assassination Attempts

CBS: Vladimir Putin tells Oliver Stone about escaping assassination attempts

Filmmaker Oliver Stone says Americans do not have a full picture of Russian President Vladimir Putin. He aims to change that with a new project, "The Putin Interviews," a four-part documentary shot over the course of two years that includes several conversations with the Russian president.

"Yes, I talked with Castro about that," Putin told Stone. "And he said to me, 'Do you know why I'm still alive?' I asked him, 'Why?' 'Because I was always the one to deal with my security personally.' But yeah, I do my job. And the security officers do theirs and they are still performing quite successfully."

"In other words, you trust your security, and they've done a great job," Stone said.

"I trust them," Putin said.
