The wives and partners of the billionaires who helped place Russian president Vladimir Putin in power reveal the secrets of staying in his good graces, and the price some have paid for speaking out, in the upcoming doc Secrets of the Oligarch Wives.

The 90-minute original documentary from UK-based Blink Films will be available to stream on Paramount+ on June 28.

In the film, the women paint a picture of Putin as a vengeful man who saw treachery at every turn, forgave nothing, settled scores and was jealous of their lifestyles, telling stories of corruption, betrayal and more.

Lynsey Neale is head of production. For See It Now Studios, Susan Zirinsky and Terence Wrong are the executive producers, Aysu Saliba is the supervising producer and Adam Goldfried is the executive director.
