    This is the one Russian documentary you'll want to sit through the whole of, reading subtitles for close to two hours.

    The world's (by far) richest man is a Russian grifter who's stolen the future of all the millions of Russians who had an incredible opportunity to reform a broken country, paved by millions in national resource wealth.

    Instead they got Putin.

    This is a bombshell documentary. The best in the business have tried for years to document Putin's robbery of his people. I'm greatly looking forward to all the independent verification and spin off that comes from this incredible documentary.

    Navalny has decided to die for this, or at least bet that he is now worth more alive than dead because of the international fallout of this one documentary. This is a moment in history you'll want to say "I watched that the week it came. I was there. My voice was a tiny part of the international choir demanding justice."

    This is a just released documentary from Navalny. It's 2 hours long (and in Russian) and covers Putin's career and the web of corruption that was built around him, focusing on the $1billion Mega Palace that sits on the black sea.

    I am only an hour in but i am glad he is exposing Putins KGB career, it is one of the more persistent myths online. I knew the broad strokes of Putins corruption and rise but its very helpful to have names and faces put together along with how they all connect. It all seems meticulously researched.

    Very interesting that he is going for Putin, it is usually one of those unspoken rules. You can go after the oligarchs, go after corrupt officials but you leave the Tsar alone. I guess the assassination attempt means it is time to take off the gloves. To do so a day after landing back in Russia is insanely brave. I originally thought he was safer going back to Russia where his death would have more impact than if he died abroad as a "traitor" but after a video like this i am not sure where he would be safe.

      I think the problem you may be having is that Youtube automatically translates titles when you are on the video page, however the big brains at youtube havent worked that (awful) feature into their search, so if you search "Putins Palace" you get english language videos on this video but if you search "Дворец для Путина." then it should be the first result (it is for me).
