Did Russia hack the 2016 US election?

Was President Vladimir Putin directly responsible?

What did Donald Trump know and when did he know it?

These and other questions dominate the news cycle as the world awaits the outcome of the US Justice Department’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

Amidst this tense political climate comes The Putin Interviews – only on SBS.

Oscar®-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone was granted unprecedented access to Russian president Vladimir Putin during more than a dozen interviews over two years, with no topic off-limits. This remarkable four-part documentary series provides intimate insight into Putin's personal and professional lives, from his childhood under communism, to his rise to power, his relations with four U.S. presidents, and his surprising takes on U.S.-Russian relations today.

Witness the most detailed portrait of Putin ever granted to a Western interviewer in double episodes of The Putin Interviews over two Sundays on June 18th and 25th at 8:30pm on SBS.

After they air, the episodes will be available at SBS On Demand.
