Personal Quote:

[on Russian-American relations] There was a great campaign to make life difficult for Vladimir Putin when he came in. Nobody ever mentions that George Bush was head of the CIA. What's the difference between the CIA and the KGB? Except that probably the KGB are more thorough, intelligent and more respectful of foreign traditions. See more »

Trivia:

According to Peter Wright, in his book "Spycatcher," Ustinov's father was Klop Ustinov, who had been active in MI5 (British Security Service, Counterespionage) as an agent runner during the Second World War. He also had the distinction of having held commissions in the Russian, German and British armies (presumably at different times). See more »
