I have read this in a book recently and now I begin to see it on TV comercials and I am sure I have seen it before this. Where does it come from?

"A riddle inside a mystery wrapped in an enigma"

Wording may not be exact.

The authorities always try to lie and deceive, and when they succeed they pat themselves on the back, whether in the United States or in France which I love so much. There is nothing surprising about this. But it's a good thing that the authorities have to use legal and other democratic means to fight their opponents. But what happened to TV6 is another matter. In my view, it was utter stupidity. It hurt Putin's reputation and the country as a whole. Russia, just as it did many years
ago, seems a strange country making lunders, "a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma" as Sir Winston Churchill once characterized it. It's difficult to understand what is does and why. Of course, you and I remember quite well what we had several decades ago…

Yes, I found a slightly different version...I think:

I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest

I'm sorry I haven't had time to find out exactly who he is, but this was found on many websites.
