Russia’s Secrets

SURPRISING THINGS ABOUT THE WORLD CUP HOST COUNTRY WITH MATTHIAS FORNOFF

What does Russia look like beyond all common clichés? Matthias Fornoff goes on a journey and shows a completely different and often astonishing Russia. Who knew that in comparison there are three times as many women in top business positions as in Germany? That in Suprjagino, near the Belarusian border, Russian cowboys herd cattle? Or that Moscow is now also the capital of hipsters?
The 45-minute ZDF documentary shows today’s Russia as a country in transition, full of contrasts and surprises.
