The Russian Empire, the USSR, and now the Russian Federation created a myth about the unique qualities of Russians – “deep moral and high-spirited”. This myth emerged in the late 19th century and has been planted and cultivated by propaganda for more than a century. But in February 2022, the world saw a completely different kind of Russians: saber-rattlers and executioners. Executions of civilians, torture of prisoners and civilians, rape of old men, women and children – all with the encouragement not only by the russian officers but even of relatives of the occupiers. How the myth of the great Russian soul turned out to be an empty shell and why the soldiers of the Russian army are so cruel – watch a shocking special documentary report.
