Ukraine. Across its eastern border is Russia and to its west-Europe. For centuries, it has been at the center of a tug-of-war between powers seeking to control its rich lands and access to the Black Sea. 2014's Maidan Massacre triggered a bloody uprising that ousted president Viktor Yanukovych and painted Russia as the perpetrator by Western media. But was it? "Ukraine on Fire" by Igor Lopatonok ... See full summary »

Granted unprecedented access to both Putin's professional and personal worlds, Oscar®-winning writer and director Oliver Stone (Platoon, JFK) with the help of his longtime documentary producer Fernando Sulichin, interviewed the Russian leader more than a dozen times over the course of two years, most recently in February following the U.S. presidential elections. Since first becoming the president of Russia in 2000, Putin has never before spoken at such length or in such detail to a Western interviewer, leaving no topic off limits. In scope and depth, THE PUTIN INTERVIEWS recalls The Nixon Interviews, the series of conversations between David Frost and Richard Nixon that aired in the spring of 1977, 40 years ago.Written by
I really enjoyed this. I thought President Putin was both intelligent and amusing. I laughed at the DVD part after they watched Dr Strangelove but also I noticed he was emotional when asked about his own family and being a father and grandfather admitting he didn't spend the time he had hope with both children and grandchildren. This was a view seldom seen but as a person I found myself very interested and liked what I saw. I think they will both remain friends after this. If you are looking for more on Russia watch Brian Cox's Russia. This gives an insight into our fellow human beings in the country and I thought to myself the Russians are alright. Don't believe everything you hear. Make your own mind up.
