AS THE CEO, THEY WORKED CLOSELY WITH RUSSIAN PRESIDENT.

VLADIMIR PUTIN.

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES HAS CHANGED OVER THE DECADES FROM THE SOVIET UNION DURING THE COLD WAR TO RELATIONS IN THE 90s, THE SENATOR SAID TODAY THE RUSSIANS ARE NOT OUR FRIENDS.

WHY ARE THEY FROM THE? GOOD QUESTIONS.

I KNOW YOU SPOKE TO THE EXPERTS AND SAID WHILE RUSSIA MAY NOT BE AN ENEMY THEY ARE CERTAINLY NOT A FRIEND? WE ARE NOT ACTIVELY FIGHTING WITH THEM IN SYRIA OR UKRAINE BUT WISH THEY WEREN'T DOING WHAT THEY ARE DOING AND WE ALSO DON'T LIKE THEM THREATENING BOTTLESÃBALTIC STATES OR OUR ELECTION SYSTEM BUT EXPERTS SAY YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHERE RUSSIA WAS IN THE 90s TO BETTER UNDERSTAND OUR RELATIONSHIP DURING THE DAY.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND WHY RUSSIANS LIKE TO HAVE A STABLE STATE AND WHY THAT'S EMBODIED BY PLANE.

IN THE 1990S AFTER THE BREAKUP OF THE SOVIET UNION, AMERICA CAME TO RUSSIA WITH MONEY AND LOTS OF ADVICE.

THERE'S A REACTION TO THE DIFFICULTY THEY EXPERIENCED.

IT WAS BAD ADVICE, AND A LOT BY PEOPLE WHO KNOW A LOT IN THEORY BUT NOT A LOT ABOUT RUSSIA.

HE HAD A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH THE US DEPENDING ON WHO IS OFFICE.

BUT NOT REALLY THE RUSSIAN PEOPLE.

HE DID WITH THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT WANTED THEM TO DO AND THEY GOT A PRESIDENT IN PLACE WHO IS NOT GOING TO DO THAT.

VLADIMIR PUT IN CENTRALIZED DASCHLE VLADIMIR PUT IN CENTRALIZED RUSSIA.

IS PUTIN A BAD GUY? RUSSIANS DON'T THINK SO.

I'M GLAD HE'S NOT MY PRESIDENT THAT IS EFFECTIVE.

DO YOU CONSIDER RUSSIA A THREAT? I DO.

NO I DON'T.

IT'S A LOT OF TALK.

IF THERE IS IT'S A MATTER OF MISCHIEF.

THEY CAN GET UP TO MISCHIEF AND BEAT UP NEIGHBORING STATES.

THEY CAN HACK INTO OUR COMPUTER SYSTEMS AND SINCE THEY FEEL THAT THEY ARE NOT GIVING THE RESPECT AND ATTENTION THEY DESERVE THAT'S A GOOD WAY TO GET THAT ATTENTION.

HE DOESN'T REALLY BLAME PUTIN SOLELY BECAUSE HE SAYS THEY ARE FOLLOWING THAT SHE IS FOLLOWING THE OPINION OF THE RUSSIAN PEOPLE.

WE HAVE VERY FEW INTERESTS IN COMMON POLITICALLY OR ECONOMICALLY AND SAYS HE DOESN'T BELIEVE THAT OUR PRESIDENT-ELECT AND PUTIN WILL HAVE A VERY GOOD RELATIONSHIP FOR VERY LONG.

BIG EGOS, BIG PERSONALITIES AND MAYBE A CRASH.

IT WILL BE HARD FOR TWO PEOPLE LIKE THAT TO BE IN THE SAME ROOM AT THE SAME TIME SO WE WILL HAVE TO SEE WHAT.
