Putin, Russia, & the West

As a counter-point to the soft-focus ARD documentary that was posted here earlier this month, here is a four-part BBC series examining closely Putin’s policies and politics dating back to his appointment as prime minister in 1999.

This is a long feature, but certainly interesting. Part 1 is called ‘Taking Control’.

Part 2 is available here (‘Democracy Threatens’).

Part 3 is available here (‘The War’).

Part 4 is available here (‘New Start’)

Note that this series was produced before the presidential election of March 4; though with the unsurprising election result it does not really change the perspective offered in the film
