In episode 4 we meet one of Putin's spin doctors, Alexey Mukhin, who is the Director General of the Center for Political Information. Before the law was passed, he published a report assessing public opinion and warning that, unless action was taken, Russia could face a gay revolution. We also follow activist Nikolai Alexeyev, the organizer of Moscow's now banned Pride Parade, to an action by the Sochi Olympics Headquarters. He explains why Russia's LGBT activists are against the West's calls for a boycott of the Olympics.
