Nobody in the world is as popular as Putin, at least within his own backyard. With an approval rating of 88%, the Russians seem to adore the man who arguably has thrown Russia into international isolation and steered Russia into an economic crisis. In this Planet Mundus episode we investigate why.

And as always we have Jan Willems. This week he is armed with nothing less than the truth: the show ends with a shocking revelation.
