The Putin System
What unfolds is a powerful investigation charting the life and political motivations of a man who set out to make Russia a superpower through his ascendance to the highest echelons of the Kremlin. With an early passion for the secret service and years served as a KGB officer, Putin has systematically crushed any democratic opposition. Speaking to both long-time supporters, his harshest critics and contextualised against the backdrop of Russian Soviet history, this documentary casts important and timely questions for the future of Russia. Described by historian Nina Krushcheva as "devious to the point that normal minds cannot comprehend or predict," just what does Putin have in store?
