Russia is constantly in the news these days, and people can't seem to agree on whether Putin's trying to bring back the Iron Curtain or whether he's coming around to the idea of being a part of the global community.
This mistrust is partly due to the fact that schools didn't teach us about Russian history, in order to keep the Cold War extra icy, so maybe if we learn about Russian history we'll understand them better.
But who wants to read those long, boring history books? You're better off watching The Animated History of Russia by James Suibhne so you can learn it all in a nutshell before you dive into those dusty tomes!
