Putin on 3 October 2016 Photo Kremlin website LOGOWhat makes Putin tick? How does he see himself? What does Russia think about him? How does the world look through his eyes? While something of a hagiography, this two and a-half hour Russia documentary, with English subtitles, is an eye-opener. If you must, watch it in segments. But by all means, watch it all. The insight it provides makes it well worth the effort.


This 150-minute documentary was posted to YouTube only two months ago. It is an exclusive work published by the Moscow-based news website, Russian Insider. From a Russian perspective, and Putin's too, this is Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. Watch it all, and tell us what you think below.
