A conversation with the Russian artist Eric Bulatov. There is talk of an anti-Russian campaign against Russian art. "What's happening right now reminds me of what was done in Nazi Germany when the Jews were persecuted and expelled from German culture," says Bulatov .

The role of the West, which wants to expand its power in the East, is repeatedly pointed out. Putin is portrayed as a mediator and solution provider who repeatedly fails due to Western blockades.
