Brezhnev's talks with Giscard d'Estaing (1977), complaining that people who criticise are "well paid".

Technically, Brezhnev is right: in 80's Poland average salary was like $20 per month, which was probably 1/100-1/10 of what people in the West earned at the time, so literally anyone there was indeed "well paid", including those few who talked badly about USSR.
