The story of Patriots

“If the politicians cannot save Russia, then we businessmen must. We have not just the responsibility but the duty to become Russian heroes”.

Patriots immerses us in the tumultuous era of The Fall of the Soviet Union, a time brimming with palpable tension, profound uncertainty, and complete disarray. Within the ever-shifting landscapes of post-Soviet Russia, individuals find themselves positioned as either triumphant victors or helpless victims. 

Patriots delves into the narrative of Boris Berezovsky, a billionaire tycoon navigating the treacherous waters of a new breed of oligarchs who are ominously preparing to seize the reins of political power. 

Witness Berezovsky's descent from a pillar of influence as he hastily attempts to evade the clutches of Russia's emergent political regime. As Patriots unfolds, it reveals the gripping tale of a man ensnared within the currents of power and survival.
