The Putin System

For three years, filmmakers Jean-Michel Carr and Jill Emery interviewed dozens of people to gain insight into the life and political motivations of Russia’s most powerful politician, Vladimir Putin. They spoke to long-time supporters, like Putin’s former schoolteacher, Vera Gurvich, to his harshest critics, like world chess champion Garry Karparov, as well as many KGB and Kremlin insiders. What emerged is a point-of-view documentary that presents an ominous view of what Putin is willing to do to ensure Russia regains its position on the world stage.

  1. propagandisky film purely for Americans to show that Putin is bad and at this point! in the film is not specifically mention some moments preceding certain events, natures average American does not know about them all would believe.

  2. The collapse of the USSR gave us George W Bush and the invasion of Iraq. If the Soviets were still there Bush would never had gone into Iraq

  3. Putin is the greatest man of the 21st Century.

  4. USSR was great. bring it back 🙂

  5. PIZDEC our country is dying in poverty while the fucking oligarchs are cruising in their Maseratis and dressing their wives in Balmain clothes. Though the west ain’t better- Americans are blinded by their “democratic” leaders while they are similarly manipulated into obeying its government’s monopoly— the only difference is that the social classes’ differences are less extreme and the Americans aren’t dying out like the Russians

  6. Christian Broadcasting co. says it all. got to have someone to fear.

  7. Its only the same ‘control’ that is deceitfully battled by every other goverment in every other world power … its just Russia are a little less P.C. …and less discrete.
    To be fair, I am sure the citizens of Iraq view the United State of America in a very similar light… Not at all condoning it, but also not wanting to take the side of the hypocrite.

  8. Know that there is money in there copper’s like never before and in the world’s eye it would be great if plumbing proper sanitation and shower’s and a way for all to prosperous would be a knock at heavens door for most
