KGB: The Sword and the Shield: Putin and Co.
Putin and Co.
Season 1  |  Episode 3  |  The History Channel  |  October 16, 2020

Coup d'etats, assassinations, sex scandals... it's the stuff of a Bond movie, but it's all very real. Under Vladimir Putin, the KGB or FSB as it's now called, rules Russia with an iron rod directly from the Kremlin. To challenge its authority, even from apparent safety abroad, means risking your life. Today, Russia is no longer a State with a Security Service: instead, the Security Service has a State.
