On the eve of Russia holding the World Cup, this special edition of Panorama looks at how the native population feels about their leader.

Richard Dimbleby interviews both supporters and opponents of Vladimir Putin, whose last election victory will see him extending his reign of power to 24 years. Among the people Dimbleby meets include children learning to fire guns in a patriotic youth group.

Putin’s Russia with David Dimbleby is on BBC One at 21.00.
