The end of a superpower – The collapse of the Soviet Union

108 Views

Russian President Vladimir Putin described the collapse of the Soviet Union as “the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century.” This documentary from 2021 (beofre the Russian invasion of Ukraine) shows the path Russian foreign policy has followed under Putin.
On December 25, 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed. Along with it came hope for the end of the Cold War, for independence and freedom for the former Soviet republics. But for many it also brought poverty and war. What remains of the dreams of that time? The documentary includes contemporary witnesses and politicians of the decisive years and shows what has become of the legacy of a world power.
