Russophobia: History of Hate

‘Dark, barbaric and savage’ is how rulers and philosophers in the West have portrayed Russia throughout history. The image lives on and flourishes in the media and popular culture. The documentary traces the origins of the anti-Russian narrative and explores who benefits from the idea of an ‘irrational and dangerous nation’. It also takes a look at how anti-Russian sentiment spread across Europe. Researchers, historians and writers talk about the shaping of Western disdain for Russia from the Great Schism to contemporary anti-Russian hysteria.
