Trust but Verify. The old Russian proverb - Доверяй, но проверяй - made popular by Ronald Reagan in the 1980s while in nuclear disarmament talks throughout his second term with Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev.
As the story goes, writer Suzanne Massie met with the President to help him prepare for the summit meetings. She told him that Russians like to speak in proverbs, so it would be a good thing to know a few relevant ones. Reagan used trust but verify numerous times, and the phrase became a signature part of selling the negotiations to the Russians.
