Movies And Specials: 'Russia And The West'

Synopsis: In light of the current events in Russia, National Geographic Channel is taking a look back at the story of Vladimir Putin. Putin's top colleagues - and the Western statesmen who eventually clashed with him -- tell the inside story of one of the world's most powerful men. Putin began his career as a KGB spy, but when he became President of Russia, he made himself a valued ally of the West. National Geographic Channel looks into how he did it and what made Washington and London turn against him. (Courtesy National Geographic Channel, 2014)
