Winning motivation DIG Awards 2020:
“Even when countries prize themselves of being amongst the most transparent, journalists should never put their guard down. This film is one of the few remaining examples of what a public broadcaster can do when it is given the freedom to inves.gate one of the countries’ biggest banks involved with Russian and Ukranian money laundering.”
