On February 21, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin recognized the separatist territories in eastern Ukraine as “independent” and ordered troops into the Russian-backed enclaves. This provoked an international outcry. Three days later, Russia began attacking Ukraine. This two-part documentary gives the background to the escalation of the Ukraine conflict from 2014 to 2021.
Through exclusive interviews with international Ukraine experts, politicians and Ukrainian President Zelenskyy himself, the film provides a multi-perspective view of a war that illustrates the troubled relationship between Europe, the US and Russia.
