FRONTLINE: Putin's Way

FRONTLINE and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation go behind the latest headlines to investigate Russian leader Vladimir Putin - his remarkable ascent from unemployed spy to modern-day czar, and the persistent accusations of criminality and corruption that have accompanied that rise. Trace Putin's career back two decades to his political start in St. Petersburg, where allegations of corruption began almost immediately.

The film chronicles Putin's ascent as Boris Yeltsin's chosen successor, examines his controversial ties to former German Chancellor Gerhardt Schroeder, and revisits the horrific 1999 Moscow apartment bombings - which continue to haunt the country, with unanswered questions about the role of Russian security services and Putin's complicity. From a senior police officer who tried to arrest Putin on corruption charges, to an investigator who tried to investigate the apartment bombings, to former writers and documentarians hired to burnish his reputation, Putin's Way offers key players' accounts portraying a Russian leader who began by professing hope and democracy but now is stoking nationalism, conflict, authoritarianism, and a complicated relationship with the West.

Review by Lars on 04/28/22 review stating The Rise of an Autocrat
This video traces the way in which Russian president Vladimir Putin cake to power in Russia in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union. It provides considerable insights into the man and his thinking.

Accurate and riveting!
Review by Tonka G. on 09/27/20 review stating Accurate and riveting!
We lived there when Putin came into power and saw the very early beginnings of his return of the czar. This program was riveting. And rang true! We lived there over four years. The Russian people are wonderful people and ask that we realize they are not their government.

Putins Headway..
Review by Universit P. on 09/27/20 review stating Putins Headway..
This investigative research lays out a clear pattern of Putins grooming as well as his evolution into deeper and deeper deals as part of the roof to defraud the people of Russia in order to build his personal empire. People are cheated and hungry as his self indulgence continues yet he remains committed to manifesting himself as a modern Czar, put in check by no one and accountable to no one. This is required viewing for world leaders if they are serious about understanding the behavior of Putin and his disregard for civil and respectful resolution.

A Must See, Now more than Ever
Review by Mac G. on 07/17/20 review stating A Must See, Now more than Ever
With Russia hacking into American politics and a sec. of State who is close friend of Putin, this film is more powerful than when it was first shown. We should know who we are dealing with our new friend.
