Russia paints a full portrait of the complex nation, from the founding of Kievan Rus’–the medieval kingdom that would become Russia– through czarist rule, revolution, civil war, the rise and fall of the Soviet Union, and the post-Soviet era. Also discussed is how the country and its people have adapted to the post-Soviet era and the divisions that have emerged since the fall of the Iron Curtain.
