The First Clip & TV Promo For Oliver Stone’s Documentary ‘THE PUTIN INTERVIEWS’

June 1, 2017

Showtime has released the first clip and new promo for Oliver Stone’s upcoming documentary THE PUTIN INTERVIEWS, which can be seen down below!

For four consecutive nights beginning Monday, June 12 at 9/8c, you’ll be able to watch Russian President Vladimir Putin answer Stone’s questions regarding the U.S. election, Trump, Syria, Snowden and more. In the official press release, The Putin Interviews is compared to the Nixon interviews, which was a series of conversations between David Frost and Richard Nixon back in 1977.

Academy Award-winning writer and director Stone worked with documentary producer Fernando Sulichin and interviewed Vladimir Putin more than a dozen times over two years, including an interview in February after the U.S. presidential elections.

Here’s some information regarding the documentary:

During these wide-ranging interviews, Putin confronts the controversies engulfing the increasingly fragile relations between the U.S. and Russia today, including his views on President Donald Trump and allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, NATO, and fostering turmoil in Syria, Ukraine and elsewhere.

Prodded by Stone, Putin traverses a host of critical topics in sharp detail, including Putin’s rise to the Presidency, and long-term grip on power, his personal relationships with Clinton, Bush, Obama and Trump– as well as Yeltsin and Gorbachev. He also talks of the legacies of Stalin and Reagan, as well as the surveillance state and Edward Snowden’s flight to asylum in Moscow, and the resignation of U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schulz.

In the clip, Putin says the U.S National Security Agency overstepped its bounds with its cybersecurity measures, but he doesn’t believe that Edward Snowden is a traitor for leaking classified documents. Just because Snowden is not a traitor in Putin’s eyes doesn’t mean the Russian leader agrees with Snowden’s actions.
