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

Do you ever have bad days?
I'm not a woman, so I don't have bad days.
There you go. Now you're gonna insult 50 percent of the American public. The way they're gonna take it.

I love Oliver Stone, I always have So, I was looking forward to this interviews with Vladimir Putin. But now, 24 hours after having seen them I'm totally and utterly puzzled. I'm not writing this as an uninformed American. I work with people who come from different Countries, a few Russians too. Mr Stone must know that all sort of public information in Russia is monitored by the Kremlin so, that alone, should throw shivers down Mr Stone's spine. Am I right? So, why then this long pro Putin propaganda, because, that's what it is. Isn't it? To make things even more puzzling Mr Stone went to the Tonight Show and told Stephen Colbert that he didn't believe the Russians interfered with the American elections. What? It's not just the US that was interfered with but the UK, France, Germany. What is this Mr Stone? What do you think you know that we're missing? As I respect you very much. I would like to understand.
