The Pull of Putin

Why do populist politicians across the West want warmer relations with Russia? Are they just Kremlin agents? Or are they tapping into a growing desire to find common cause with Moscow - and end East-West tension? Tim Whewell travels from Russia to America and across Europe to unravel the many different strands of pro-Moscow thinking, and offer a provocative analysis which challenges conventional thinking about the relationship between Russia and the West.
I heard about this radio show in the car on the M4, and I must catch up with it on the BBC iPlayer. I am baffled by coverage of Russia in general, and just can't understand why it is always so negative. Ditto Iran, to be frank.
