DW: The Russians – Old age beyond Moscow and the Kremlin (5/6)



Russia? That is what Vladimir Putin stands for abroad.

But how do Russians think and live far away from Moscow and the Kremlin? How do people in the Urals, in Siberia, at the Arctic Circle tick? What do the young strive for, what do the old want? What drives Russians critical of the government, what makes them loyal to the Kremlin? Who are “The Russians”?

In this volume Viktor from Saint Petersburg has beaten his drug addiction. Veronika from the Tundra has a thing for guns. Vityok from Vologda is a touring star.

We accompany Russians through all phases of life, from birth, childhood and youth to old age and death. They tell us their life story. Full of joy and sorrow, hope and despair, sadness and humour.

“The Russians” – a film by Yuri Resheto. You will get to know “The Russians” in six episodes: One day – one period of life. Birth on Monday – Death on Saturday.
