After the fall of the Iron Curtain, former Soviet nations had to deal with a chaotic period marked by military conflicts and the search for new national identities and a new self-awareness. The four-part documentary ‘Moscow’s Empire’ looks for answers to these developments, and provides a variety of perspectives on life in the former Soviet block countries – from the people who have experienced events first hand and, in some cases, shaped them.
