Taking on Putin

Vladimir Putin is about to face the voters, and most think his victory is a foregone conclusion. If the Russian President does win six more years in power, he will become the country's longest serving ruler since Stalin. So why is Putin so powerful? Reporter John Sweeney investigates allegations that the Kremlin has subverted democracy in Russia, and meets the Putin opponent who has been banned from the election.
