Putin’s Way

Synopsis
FRONTLINE investigates Vladimir Putin’s remarkable ascent from unemployed spy to modern-day czar, and the persistent accusations of criminality and corruption that have accompanied that rise. It traces Putin’s career back two decades, through key players’ accounts portraying a leader who began by professing hope and democracy, but now is stoking nationalism, conflict, authoritarianism, and a complicated relationship with the West.
