Putin’s Revenge 2x60

Against the backdrop of investigations by the FBI and Congress into possible collusion between Trump campaign members and Russian officials, FRONTLINE filmmaker Michael Kirk and the series’ award-winning political team trace how Putin went from low-ranking KGB agent, to long-serving president of a newly assertive Russia with the ability to wage cyber-war in the U.S. and across the globe.

Part One: Amid claims he hacked the 2016 election, the inside story of Vladimir Putin’s conflict with the United States. FRONTLINE investigates Putin’s mounting grievances with the U.S. and his efforts to exact revenge leading up to the presidential election.

Part Two: How the U.S. struggled to confront Vladimir Putin over Russian involvement in the 2016 election. The film investigates how revenge may have motivated Putin to target American democracy, and the U.S. responses under Presidents Obama and Trump.
