Not that good

(3 out of 5 stars)
They kind of pass over important events. Like Soviet involvement in Korea, Vietnam. They also fail to show that if such a "monster" moves, reacts, launches initiative to conquer, it is in reaction toward another "monters" move.
They fail to show the "why"'s of Soviets international decisions. This is because they solely focus on Russia, which is useless for a documentary about Russia. They HAVE to explain US & NATO moves also so we understand a little bit better the whole picture.
Nonetheless, this documentary still hold some interesting information about former CCCP, but presented in some boring way because of the above issue.
Documentary was out in 1990, so don't expect to get a present picture of Russia and it's ex-sattelites.
