Ukraine. Across its eastern border is Russia and to its west Europe. For hundreds of years it has been a country at the center of a tug-of-war between larger powers vying to control it for geo-political advantage. This power play continues today, but the game is even more sophisticated and the political manipulation more nefarious with the advent of contemporary espionage and media influence. Ukraine on Fire brings us all the way to the 21st century and tells the tale of two Viktors--Viktor Yanukovych, who barely won the presidency in 2004 due to loyal ethnic support in his country, and his opposition, Viktor Yushchenko, who was the candidate supported by the U.S. It then investigates the U.S.-backed coup that led to the overthrow of Yanukovych and uncovers the Obama Administration players who pulled the strings. Executive producer Oliver Stone gains unprecedented access to the inside story through his on-camera interviews with not only Yanukovych, but with Russian President Vladimir Putin, helping to reveal information that will leave you questioning whether what you ve seen in the news is the truth . . . or a campaign devised by Western superpowers to rule the world.
