The act of saying one thing, which puts everyone at ease, then doing the exact opposite of what you propose. It's kind of like a crazy Ivan.
Ivan: Anna, if you go to bed with me, I promise to respect you in the morning.

Anna: Really, I love you so much.

Ivan at 6AM: Get out bitch, here's cab fare. I gave you a Russian Promise last night.
