Every American should watch this documentary to catch up on current events. Beware--this eye-opening account will make you realize the dangers of Putin's power and wealth.

This is a shocking and chilling documentary about Vladimir Putin originally broadcast by PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) as part of Frontline on January 13, 2015.
The film traces Putin's career back two decades to his political start in St. Petersburg, where allegations of corruption began almost immediately.
The Russian apartment bombings were a series of explosions that hit apartment blocks in the Russian cities of Buynaksk, Moscow and Volgodonsk in September 1999, killing nearly 300 people and spreading a wave of fear across the country.
The bombings were blamed by the Russian government on rebels from the North Caucasus region and together with the Dagestan War, that took place in August 1999, lead to the military invasion of the separatist Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.
The militants as well as the secessionist Chechen authorities, however, denied their involvement in the bombing campaign.
According to a theory that was put forward by anti-Kremlin oligarch Boris Berezovsky, Yuriy Felshtinsky, Alexander Litvinenko, American writer David Satter, political scientist Vladimir Pribylovsky, Russian Duma lawmaker Sergei Yushenkov, film maker Andrei Nekrasov, investigator Mikhail Trepashkin, the bombings were a successful coup d'état organized by the FSB to bring Vladimir Putin to power.
Putin seems to be a dangerous person to the world peace.

It will sound strange to say but I never realized how important this documentary would be until I watched it. Helped to make some sense out of the nonsense that is taking place in the Ukraine today. I wish it had went a bit more in depth as it is only for an hour, but provocative enough to push one towards doing some more research on Mr. Putin.

Nothing too groundbreaking, but it is a thorough and easy-to-follow account that will bring you up to date on the most recent events. A great documentary to start understanding Putin's character.
