The film examines how Russia's foreign policy works via its army, energy sector, NGOs, cyber warfare and diplomacy.
What may seem mundane at a glance looks rather different when looked at up close, with 'close' also meaning from just across the border in Latvia.
The film is subtitled in English — press the Play button and enjoy the ride.
