The Rest Is History

161. Yeltsin, Economic Chaos and President Putin

The Rest Is History

[Episode 3 of 4]

'You certainly won't understand what ordinary Russians see in Vladimir Putin if you don't understand what happened in the 1990s. A time of utter, utter collapse.' 

In part three of our Soviet Union, Russia and Putin series, Tom and Dominic drill down into the details of the chaos in 90s Russia, the laughing stock Yeltsin became on the global stage, and Putin's brutal rise to power on the back of the Second Chechen War. 

The final episode in the series is out tomorrow - or get it now by heading to!
