It Is An Independent Publication That Summarises John Sweeney Book (Killer in the Kremlin) In Detail. He's obviously been reading Masha Gessen, heavily - no bad thing because her books are great - but if you want a book examining Putin and taking guesses as to what's wrong with him then read The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin, which is truly excellent. Before that he worked at The Observer, covering wars and revolutions in more than sixty countries including Romania, Algeria, Iraq, Chechnya, Burundi, and Bosnia.

Ukraine, always in our thoughts today, and John Sweeney gives an insight not only into Putin the man but also hardships faced by frontline war correspondents. The take away message is simply that Putin cannot be allowed to win in Ukraine under any circumstances and the west (who have been duped by him and pandered to him for decades) must now stand firm against him. A follow-up Panorama programme also hosted by Sweeney, which at an hour is twice the length of the original one was aired on the 28 September 2010. Sweeney doesn’t spell this out quite as clearly as would have been desirable, but his account of many of the key events in Russia since 1991 is invaluable, enabling readers to see the wood as well as many of the trees.I can't complain in the approach he taken; I would have been the same if I was writing a similar volume of work.

Before joining the BBC in 2001, Sweeney worked for twelve years at The Observer, where he covered wars and revolutions in more than sixty countries including Romania, Algeria, Iraq, Chechnya, Burundi and Bosnia. Sweeney has never been one to shy away from speaking his mind and controversy is nothing new to him. Martin also states that Sweeney departs from objective journalism as Sweeney “elevates [himself] to the position of the book’s leading character”. As a reporter, first for The Observer, then the BBC Sweeney has covered wars and chaos in more than eighty countries and been undercover to a number of tyrannies including Chechnya, North Korea and Zimbabwe. But Mr Sweeny's work is a good starting to gain the understanding that presently void in the true nature of what been inflicted on European soil over last 12 months.the author admits, ‘I still don’t understand why Vladimir Putin started his idiot war’ against Ukraine. In a disturbing exposé of Putin's sinister ambition, Sweeney draws on thirty years of his own reporting - from the Moscow apartment bombings to the atrocities committed by the Russian Army in Chechnya, to the annexation of Crimea and a confrontation with Putin over the shooting down of flight MH17 - to understand the true extent of Putin's long war.
