Little is known about the inner workings of the Kremlin, especially with Vladimir Putin in power.

This week on Conflict Zone: former Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov, who served in Putin's first administration from 2000-2004. He knows what happens behind the closed doors of the Russian government.

He says he feared for his own life after opposition politician Boris Nemtsov was killed in 2015. And still does.

Mikhail Kasyanov: “Everyone in Russia should be scared.”

Tim Sebastian asked Kasyanov how much he knew about state-sanctioned killings while he was in office and how secure Putin himself is now. What about the rumors of the Russian president's ill health? How does he think this war in Ukraine can end? And why, all those years ago, did Russian President Boris Yeltsin groom an unknown KGB colonel as his successor? All that – and more – on Conflict Zone
