Through Africa’s rich jungles, across Syria’s deserts, over Ukraine’s fields and into the heart of American democracy, Putin has forced his influence, seeding chaos and fear. Nowhere is this threat felt more keenly than on Russia’s border. So how has one tiny country repeatedly repulsed Putin’s intimidations, and defeated his attacks? What kind of leader inspires their people to such a contrarian outcome: the world’s most digitally advanced democracy thriving on Putin’s doorstep? Toomas Hendrik Ilves, former president of Estonia between 2006 – 2016, is that leader. In conversation with executive producer Fred Casella, he discusses his time as president, illustrated by exclusive footage from the forthcoming documentary, Good Luck Mr President.
