Strippers, Spies and Russian Money

12th February 2023 | Channel 4

This is the extraordinary story of Russia’s secret attempts to corrupt British politics, influence Government policy and undermine our democracy in the years before the invasion of Ukraine.
Over the past 12 years, Russia-linked donors have poured millions into the coffers of the ruling Conservative Party. The film reveals how senior politicians ignored the warnings about President Putin to the detriment of our national security, how political activists were encouraged to visit a Moscow strip club, and hears allegations from a government minister about a Russian ‘diplomat’ who sought information from him over a pint in a pub.
