S03 #2 - From spymaster to president
20 min
Russian President Vladimir Putin came to power declaring he would kill his terrorist enemies, even if they were in the toilet at the time.

His transition from spymaster to President came in the midst of apartment bombings, and brutal crackdowns on those he held responsible.

He learned that having an enemy to fight makes you a popular leader.

The turbulent first years of his Presidency tell us a lot about why he has picked a fight with the West.
