by the afternoon just passed at four pm in moscow this saturday afternoon watching out international with me kevin zero in a thirty minute live update coming up then starting with this the u.s. is declassified six hundred pages of private conversations between former american and russian presidents bill clinton and boris yeltsin they took place between one thousand nine hundred three in one thousand nine hundred nine when yeltsin left office election collusion nato expansion and the future russian president vladimir putin were among the many topics they discussed our senior correspondent lord took a closer look. now that we are at rock bottom in terms of relations between russia and the us it's bad now we pine for what they work backward presidents could talk frankly joke laugh heck even collude for elections bill for my election campaign i urgently need for russia alone of two
9:02 am
point five billion dollars i'll check on this with the i.m.f. and with some of our friends and see what can be done those were the days when you could funnel billions to get your pals reelected real friendship right there clinton even helped yeltsin with a heart operation their wives now in the yeltsin and hillary clinton visited each other shopped together unfortunately it wasn't very equal friendship nine hundred ninety six the united states was strong russia was in its knees crime corruption stagnation it seemed to get the rule or end of every deal it remains a mistake for nato to move eastward nuclear and conventional arms cannot move eastward into new members to the borders of russia i've told you no one is talking about a massive all out accelerated expansion two years later nearly
9:03 am
a dozen european states were invited to join nato the czech republic hungry poland bulgaria is still with latvia lithuania romania slovakia slovenia so yeltsin tried everything he even begged. let us have a verbal gentlemen's agreement we would not write it down in the statement that no former soviet republics would enter nato i cannot sign any agreement without such language especially ukraine consider what a terrible message it would be were still organized against russia but there's a line across which we won't go pleading didn't work so we'll turn tried warnings russia will pull out of the agreement and consider it now and void i know what a terrible problem this is for you but i can't make the specific commitment you're asking for not even complaints could get through you are conducting naval maneuvers
9:04 am
near crimea it is as if we are training people in cuba how would you feel it's unacceptable to us the spite of all that they were named friends even joked together. three months of the pre-election races taken its toll i feel somewhat tired i saw the picture of you dancing with the girls in the band and you looked wonderful i'm disappointed that no one sets up events like that for me in my campaign they were frank so frank in fact that there generals would get a little nervous yeah they discussed ditching their nuclear briefcases what if we were to agree giving up having to have our finger next to the button all the time perhaps we could agree that it's not necessary for us to carry the chima down shake well i'll have to think about this all we carry of course are the codes in the secure phone yes you and i are the only leaders you have to do this mr president given the responsibility of your office and president yeltsin's it makes more sense
9:05 am
for the two of you to have these devices with you at all times it was simpler in those days the world was younger and no one knew what the future held for example would the united states pull out the viewer up the u.s. is not in europe europe should be the business of europeans russia is half european and half asian so you want asia to sure sure bill eventually will have to agree on all of this i don't think the europeans would like this very much not all but i'm a european moscow is in europe and i like it you can take all the other states and provide security to them i would take europe and provide them security well not i russia will bill i'm serious give year up to europe itself europe never felt as close to russia as it could go in yeltsin just upped and left leaving behind a successor that clinton was sure he'd get along with shortly you will have
9:06 am
a meeting with mr putin i would like to tell you about him so you will know what kind of man he is he is a solid man who is kept well abreast of various subjects under his purview and he can easily have good relations and contact with people who are as. knows who will win the election and of course he's a democrat and he knows the west he's very smart he's tough he has an internal ramrods and he will when you do business together strange to think that most of the issues problems they discussed in those days are still the main themes of today nato expansion and encroachment european security trade and lower ones what's changed is that russia's grown up turns out it's much harder being friends when you're more equal. a passenger jets overshot the runway caught fire in southern russia it left eighteen people injured including three children he goes down off reports from the scene in sochi a modification of

a boeing seven three seven operated by you it's a major russian airline mostly focusing on domestic flights will it make to a landing attempt here in the airports of sorts of the first one was apparently hampered by the strong winds as you see it is all nice and sunny right now but if there was a vicious thunderstorm here downpour of rain and lightning bolts were going off literally every few seconds so the landing conditions were nowhere near good or perfect in that sense on the second attempt when the aircraft finally did touch the landing strip that was when things didn't go where they should have to basically the aircraft rolled past the end of the runway the pilots couldn't bring it to a stop one of the short of it plunged into a river caught fire on one of the engines or one of the wings of the left wing is reported to have been completely burnt down now it is somewhat of a miracle i should say that there were no casualties when it comes to the people on
9:08 am
board of the plane that it was one death of though and that is one of the airports workers apparently the man was one of the first responders on the scene of the crash and he was trying to help him. get out of the burning plane and the word is his heart just couldn't really take it apparently he died of a heart attack on sight so what is happening now of course the investigators are looking into what caused the would cause the tragedy with the tragedy was it the weather or was there a human factor involved too also with the russian transportation authority will be investigating and looking into how the airline is operating and how the airports here in salt use operating but so far of course the most important thing is that nobody on board of that plane died. but of confrontations expected during sweden's general election with a country split right now over surgeon margaret numbers we could see the governing
9:09 am
left wing social democrats lose the upper hand in parliament at the same time the nationalist opponents are being widely criticized with claims of racism roof a national report. nationalist sentiment is pretty new sweden on the project change better tones here ok dictating for the upcoming general election the n.t. migron sweden democrats party looks set to make big gains they define themselves as social conservative with a nationalist foundation but the swedish media is warning of something more and rival politicians their sisters but it is a racist party with nazi roots that's what i've always said that the sweden democrats deny zation is their racist and sadia focus is on smart immigration policy this is like the old all way of trying to scare people off from voting for us sweden is extreme in the european sense our policies are not extreme our politicians are not the extreme in general however when end to racism group has
9:10 am
been doing some digging and found candidates to the parliament from the sweden democrats had links to the neo nazi group the national socialist front. we had some bad eggs in our party but just today it was revealed that even you know the center party or the liberal party they have people who have killed people who have sexually assaulted females so unfortunately that happens in every party but because the swedish left wing media hates the sweden democrats they tried to you know bring that up more than for the others critics of the sweden democrats are still convinced their defining feature is racism a central point for them the central goal is to keep sweet and white. these people that came from. skinheads now two white power organizations during the night and they are now the second largest party in yet there are way more radical
9:11 am
forces in sweden this far right camp alternative for sweden formed by those expelled from the sweden democrats for being too extreme was there's still a steve here let's say that the sweden democrats are quite good but they are getting more and more liberal more and more politically correct and they are not the ones to save sweden today so we have to create a new party a tougher party which is not politically correct a party which dares to speak out about repatriation because it's the only solution to sweden problems we gave the immigrants everything is we have tested everything and sweden is today a country in a real mess alternative for sweden's chances of claiming a seat in the parliament are slim but not as slim as the nordic ministers to this movement basically present themselves as he'd lost soldiers. i. was the one to your life when they call you like
9:12 am
me now and the people gather you sound like no not in our studio you are right there yes i am around more to the right brainwashed so the wrong and very wrong what is your opinion on counties that. what they were great not just a nigerian law is the greatest you know really have huge and i know it is not here i mean is that correct nothing is that no national socialism or the number of the supporters hardly more than two or three thousand significantly more people counter-protest needlessly to inform the countries communist party thinks the threat posed by swedish nazis is fairly much exaggerated but that they have a really good media strategy when politicians gather they would go the. threaten people and make a lot of noise and being really tough and dangerous and look really scary and the
9:13 am
media will write about this but i mean there are not so many people they can be a real threat the three individuals but on a societal level they are just. they are nothing if former swedish police officer with african or reaching staff and sherry quit his job to help migrants like himself integrate his name as a release of reason in sweden and believes is getting too much attention for a different explanation for that maybe sometimes it is easier to focus on them because look we know who they are we have the knowledge and when it comes to. make more extreme subjects we don't know so much so we don't want to say the wrong things or we don't want people to think that we say the wrong things despite being shamed as nazis by the media and politicians are right and far right movements are still winning people over in this once liberal nordic state but these parties are
9:14 am
showing they will confront current migrant policies head on lead for better or worse great no shouty reporting from sweden. american consumers what we face is a tricky time ahead the new chief of the us consumer protection bureau was till recently only other side of the tracks using his legal experience to defend big business he represented facebook and consumer credit rating agencies before taking up the new position as caleb maupin reports there are now accusations that over possible conflict of interest. it's job is pretty simple protect americans from the might of big business the job of the consumer protection bureau of the united states is to make sure that the products americans purchase are safe and to make sure they don't buy into false advertising the f.t.c. was given the power to investigate and stop unfair message of competition and deceptive practices so meet the man whose job it is to protect american consumers

from dangerous products he was just appointed by the trumpet ministration his name andrew smith now anderson is knows quite a bit about corporations who get dragged into court for harming the public why does he know all about it well he's been representing those corporations for most of his life as a corporate lawyer in fact the two most high profile cases facebook and equifax are both his former clients now that little fact did not go unnoticed. instead of demanding accountability the f.t.c. puts equifax is hired gun in charge of the bureau that's supposed to protect consumers this is corruption plain and simple he's on the wrong side of these issues i can imagine worse choices but not money so an activist group calling itself public citizen filed a request under the freedom of information act to find out if there were any potential conflicts of interest in relation to andrew smith consumers deserve
9:16 am
a consumer protection advocate in this position not a hired gun for cook sharks they were provided with documents over four hundred ninety five pages on the new consumer protection sheet and potential conflicts and cronyism associated with them however almost all of it was blacked out nearly every page was redacted so no information was exposed there so no new evidence about alleged conflicts of interest that certainly doesn't ease the doubts this is andrew smith in twenty eighteen my name is andrew smith and i'm the director of the bureau of consumer protection at the federal trade commission were dedicated to pursuing law enforcement actions to stop unlawful practices including fraud against consumers but this is andrew smith less than a year ago representing equifax a company investigated by the f.t.c. for a massive data breach my name is andrew smith and i'm a partner in the law firm of covington and burling i'm appearing today on behalf of the consumer data industry association which is

9:22 am
a real hard time getting bar the force of the pay and upon pacs play upon the programs and you know who pays for those programs. this isn't just empty rhetoric either sanders announced that he'd be introducing legislation that would require these big corporations to cover all federal benefits their employees receive from the government like food stamps and public housing if they can't pay them a living wage he's also encouraging amazon employees to speak out one former employee claims she was forced to work with an injured foot was like a something there was a loud crack i really feel it was an injury she really we don't seize your flights not stolen or anything just goes to it just so the surgeon supplied you through fish your shift it's either finished your shift. cliff face at one time however amazon c.e.o. jeff bezos presented himself as an employer who truly cared about his employees and the environment they were working at i'm very proud of the culture that we have
9:23 am
with them so if you're giving great customer experience. there's the only way to do that is with happy people and now amazon has issued a response to sandra's criticism something that doesn't happen very often urging employees to write to the senator and prove him wrong senator sanders continues to make inaccurate and misleading accusations against amazon we are encouraging all employees to take senator sanders up on his request and respond with their actual experience some did respond positively to the senator's tweets but that didn't change his mind he called on amazon to publish info on the number of employees it hires along with hourly wages and benefits amazon says it's median salary in the us . just over thirty four thousand dollars around what jeff bezos makes every ten seconds now imagine how much money he's made in the time i've taken to report this story. samir khan r t washington d.c. . the u.s.
