They say there was a magic pill that could cure any illness and prolong life, but only the Soviet leaders had access to it. Was it a panacea or a placebo? Why did Joseph Stalin have a habit of waking up in the middle of the night to go to a different bedroom? Did Vladimir Lenin really die of syphilis, or has information about his death been falsified? Who was Brezhnev’s nurse and why did she have such tremendous influence on him? Get inside the Kremlin walls and learn what the heads of USSR used to eat and drink, how they protected themselves from illnesses and what their main phobias were. Meet the doctors, chefs and close relatives of people who ruled the state and find out all the Kremlin’s secrets.
