From the interviews the filmmaker said he was able to see 'from the other side' what the West was preparing.
He said the build-up of weapons used as 'defence shields' made the possibility of a nuclear accident very real.
'I do believe that could happen, an accident, and number two is the American policy is ultimately one of looking for a first strike option like they did in the old days of the 1960s, where they talk about taking out the Russian capability first,' Stone told The Daily Telegraph.
'He (Vladimir Putin) makes the point that all these countries (like Australia) are vessels or you might even say hostages but they are not allies because the United States listens in on all its allies.'
Stone said Australia was in too 'thick and deep' with the US and their stance against Russia.
He likened this to the way former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott threatened to shirt front Putin over Russian-backed military involvement in the shooting down of flight MH17.
'I saw that (the Abbott shirt front threat), it was typical of the bellicose Anglo Saxon reaction to anybody that challenges your superiority,' he said.
