First we follow the Russian rulers from Rurik to Putin. From there, we will cover all aspects of Russian and Soviet history as well as the histories of all of the countries that were part of the USSR and the Russian Empire. Hopefully, the podcast can help you understand the policies of Vladimir Putin, and Russia.
