The Putin System -Documentary

The Putin System is a 2009 documentary chronicling Putin’s rise to power in Russia along with the implications for ordinary Russian people.

Russia is once again flexing its muscles. This time its weapons are not the Red Army or its nuclear arsenal, but the huge energy resources lying under the Siberian tundra.

Vladimir Putin is the man responsible for the reemergence of Russia as a global power, but how much is really known about him and his ascendance?

This film explores his journey to the highest echelons of the Kremlin and contextualizes his rise against a newly assertive Russia nostalgic for the past glories of the Soviet empire.

This investigative documentary covers 30 years in the history of Russia through the personal history of Vladimir Putin, a man who has single-mindedly played all the rules of the game to reach the throne of power.

A bit old but very interesting documentary. After the film's statement that Putin at school had the desire to go to the KGB, we follow his political career through strategic promotions, to the days of preparations for the forthcoming elections, in 2008.

Duration of the film it's 90 minutes, so seat back and watch it!

I don't always agreed with what's being said in the documentary because these comments are not verifiable, but it is very interesting to see how Putin came to power and how he uses that power. No difference between Putin or western politicians in a sense that they all want power and priviledges and don't give rat's ass for the population. The methods are different at a glance, but the end result it's the same.

In a Democracy all people are equal but some are more equal than others!

Like other documentaries, you have to see this film with a critical view.
