Low trust society / Russian mentality exemplified: Putin dismissive of western milk farmer who moved to Russia

The westerner is still broadcasting high trust.

Putin’s dismisses his honest concern, immediately suggesting, cynically that he came to Russia for the women — they can’t even fathom that someone isn’t conniving.

Putin says that if things were really bad, he’d already be out of business, and that the official reports stating the economy is healthy are accurate.

This is the low-trust society.
