Kompromat, a documentary that asks serious questions about the relationship between former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and the Russian secret state.

“They told me not to make it. So I did.” — John Sweeny

For years British investigative journalist and writer John Sweeny tried to get this story out, however he faced difficulties with the main TV channels to do so.

“This is a film about the Russian secret state, its oligarchs and the influence their dirty money can buy in the UK.” — BylineTV

It’s also a film about a photograph. A photograph of the then foreign secretary Boris Johnson, alone, without security returning from a party at the Italian palace of a former KGB agent. What was he doing there? Who was watching — and why? Join John Sweeney on his mission to uncover the dark side of Boris Johnson’s relationship with Russian influence.
