The Russian word Kompromat (compromising document) surfaced in the news after a rumor the FBI took seriously: the Russian secret services were in possession of a compromising video of Donald Trump, in the middle of an orgy with Russian prostitutes! Kompromat is about stealing personal images to blackmail one’s targets (journalists, members of the opposition, diplomats…). This KGB practice was brought back by Putin, who has used it to enhance his power and control the opposition. Under his rule, these intelligence tactics have become a mediatic tool: some platforms have specialized in the spread of salacious documents. This documentary is the first to focus on the victims, but also the perpetrators of these schemes. It will also reveal the unheard of story of a French expatriate who has gone on the run after a Kompromat gone wrong.
