headline a five second sound bite and an easy solution. dellums deep a thumb's has challenged the status quo to expose double standards and debate the contradictions join me mad the hot sun for a new season of the show the frank loves up front. but this time i'll just erupt. the top stories around votes are being counted in a controversial kurdish referendum on secession in northern iraq where local media reporting a turnout of seventy eight percent meanwhile iraq central government and. military
maneuvers on the border in retaliation for the vote. has the latest from. there had hoped to see in their lifetime so eager to be the first to cast their ballots. so excited about the referendum she had a restless night that is the first time she's been able to vote. i am so happy i wanted to be one of the first ones here i only slept for three hours this is a historic day for us. but he was in early he does his blue finger was pride. i have voted in presidential and parliamentary elections before but this is the most important one because it's about independence. everyone arabs assyrians everyone who wants to live in freedom. similar repeated around the kurdish region people. however they could areas
where kurdish president. has a strong foothold. so happy today. also went to cook despite fears it could further. nearly half of the city's population who feel they have been marginalized by the kurds so this is the ballot paper the question. areas outside. to become. the vote. which means. everything on the ballot is written in three other languages arabic and turkish the regional government sending a message that the future. will be inclusive. but william benjamin is not convinced he's an assyrian christian and has voted no.
see the same interest in us in other political events before this referendum it's just a way to lure the minorities we respect their promises but until now they've not respected our rights and every reason the history of this land excluding our part in it. the kurdish president has said that it's time to end the failed partnership with baghdad a message that resonates among kurds who hope that this is the day that they write what they consider to be a historical wrong but by taking over the disputed territories but is only now faces those who feel history is repeating itself this time against not kurds but at the. north korea's top diplomat says president tweet that leader kim jong un be around much longer is a declaration of war and he says north korea now has every right to take countermeasures including shooting down u.s. bombers outside of its airspace. last week claimed
that our leadership wouldn't be around much longer and he declared war on our country. the fact that this comes from the united states president is clearly a declaration of war. since the united states declared war on our country we have every right to make countermeasures including the right to shoot down united states strategic bombers even when they're not yet inside north korean as a base. in germany and america has begun the task of building a new coalition after sunday's election a party came out on top but with a reduced number of seats the far right alternative for germany party has won seats in parliament for the first time taking thirteen percent of the vote. he's forty five people have been killed after a series of air strikes in syria's province russian and syrian government jets have escalated strikes on adlib and her provinces in recent days federal services on
russians are famous of a cultural legacy music valley literature. but can tradition and conservative if a source of stagnation and authoritarian rule. the bond between the state and culture of russia has always been strong too strong for some perhaps. one post said that patriots taken so seriously here that you could be killed for. the communist state was called totalitarian because the strive to attain total control of russian folk. oh perhaps what some people take for control and censorship is what the majority sees as an integral part of russian culture.
the russian film industry pales in comparison to what it used to be in. soviet days which was one of the most profitable sectors of the economy along with oil and both to production. in the mid one nine hundred seventy s. more than a billion cinema tickets were sold annually. almost all of the films the soviet film agency distributed when made in the russian language after the fall of communism opening up to western cultural imports resulted in over eighty percent of film screened coming from america i mean my god i. was. going there with your idea that shows goodale but. you have to learn risk rituals like that of moscow film festival continue to celebrate russian cinema while keen to imitate western prototypes. i
think it's something that's i think. anything. like that. that there will. tend to film which seems to be the most controversial and talked about of the program. my good hans is a period piece taking place in germany and the soviet union at the beginning of the second world war. belief well i think sometimes it is your exact moment that i've never experienced so much little bit and the crew. who carry.
with you don. the film is controversial because it tells a story of germans and russians cooperating while hitler is concrete western europe . the main here and later returns to russia as an invader and. from this point on it's fischel russian history germany and aggressor russia the greatest fighter against an artist. but our german protectionists remembers he was here before as a friend. in the summer of nine hundred thirty nine nazi foreign minister i've been told and start his chief diplomat muller to sign the non-aggression pact and a secret french treaty the second world war started with hitler and started dividing europe in spheres of influence with russia's heroic role at the heart of
state ideology similar to freedom top pact is today athol can put it. just russia the city and in nazi germany where our longest dissent between us invaded poland remain in the baltic states and. i know that exists in my to both here and it's clear makers of despair were trying to deal with this difficult. where under considerable pressure. whatever battles might be fought over the film's content the film festival party is what it should be a bit of fun and there lively exchange of views. used to look at you the faults of most of the kids the most news in the city good. for those years you think would
sing the songs in your view make what it is that you were in the book was really a mean you're not going to use the word existed. i chatted with my friends and colleagues i asked the german co-producer of the film simone a poem and you can about the ideological problems that needed something in order to secure russian financing welcome us dollars the store. was going to buy his son would show up at that said because i don't like most units are not very good on you nationally i think you're going to say if you're in any system why doesn't it. from the. host of zooms. in the answer phones have it's going to. publish a number is gasoline is going to learn about what we're really. that's good i mean
that's something that my grandmother by. the sound of the. name of this if it got. down there. i would almost normal that was the. only part they are serious i congratulate the film's director alexander mitt does with the premier and agree to meet for a chat before the day. we meet in the house of cinema which hasn't changed much since the soviet days and a quarter of a century after the end of the u.s.s.r. it's not only the soviet interiors that have survived here but some soviet political habits as well. alexander became famous already in the soviet
meaning a theory of a body. are you when you double your skull though. not double door which. would very oddly into three it would be. ninety. but the way you. are it should go. to the new ball you have the whistle most of. the computer you look occlude you. that i knew. you would it as good was. to ensure way you could get should it. would have been the prettiest which you. could put in it only the chimp. would you just got. to use the bit with orders to get the bill was more than you'd get through. news much of your fresh fortune bashing
books good will so even. that wouldn't be. so there's no censorship just friendly advice from an official historian or a political scientist on duty. and public spaces in moscow a full of intellectually learned people no different from that counterparts elsewhere give the modern world. there are public events that have no sign of government control. yet such appearances may be misleading. fair to doc is known for shows that have based on real life stories it believes it's a victim of politically motivated harassment right now it's pain through an out of its premises by
a bully landlord even though the theater. dog had to subtly invest in what used to be a ruin before it moved it. to finances manisha victoria holder has to wind up the account and announce the closure of the venue and i think you know i'm not sure i want to know more before i see other lines she hear us old neighbor the stuff we hear nation is the broken up that you thought well you know. that. we should. be here here i mean you usually have the critique of the people who are supposed to be sure who should just be here but. i know you're there you look i'm sure. i'm trying to understand which has led to the theatre it's a fiction or. one hundred fifty reason not to defend your mother the. dangerous title in russia today. there's an insolent putin and his job
his friendship his bellows kone as it turns out that play is of the most problematic there are others one on who the crimea really belongs to and one about same sex love is you know before the couple with. all nationalized d'you hear cut off maybe at the end a year over sixty. it's at the risk of. the world or it's quite safe that you've got to get your way it has to go searching if the rush to washington or snowboarding what's important in the models actually almost to this venue the pool if you go to the first of three score you know permit it's i think what it is no good when your store possible thought that most of the celtic would get that of course then you know it's just going to start double like this but i may get in there with the closest to life so you can whisper games to me not to new zealand.
but the most. one would have been an idea g m a got there in the world and they are doing it yet other options still more to bitch assuming nobody got the goods roberts. victorian sists the theatre must not be afraid since it's fear of authority that lead to the dictatorship. yet fear of authority is deeply rooted in russian and for me it is not entirely hidden under the modern westernized look of some russian cities like you could hear of berg in western siberia.
the most important source of authoritarian tradition in modern history is the rule of the soviet dictator joseph stalin from the early one nine hundred twenty s. to there in one nine hundred fifty s. millions of innocent people were executed or imprisoned in the so-called gulag a vast system of labor camps officially the government condemns the start and purges and yet it is a sign of the dominant culture of national pride that most people don't want to be reminded of their histories dark chapters. and so perm thirty six the last of the labor camps which only closed in one nine hundred eighty eight is the only original site in this huge country commemorating stalin's terror. my film crew must stay outside while i join a tour of the museum. where allowed to take a few shots with my mobile phone. i'm not sure the museum is that effective at
capturing what for millions of people was an agonizing experience of literature it painted a more graphic picture in my imagination. too hard to see for example on this double book. but many had it even worse than that. sleeping rough in subzero temperatures and starving well building there with shelters. although it's hard to get an exact figure it's estimated that about three million people died of hunger cold exhaustion and related diseases. it's simply mind boggling to think that this system of abominable cruelty and slavery was set up in the name of freedom and justice. on the walls of the prison camp of the score of the race of the soviet times and which woke the inmates every morning. the
the the. the. the. the. the. the. the for a decade after the fall of coming russia had a different of them and it was putin to reinstate is it the old soviet town from just a new russia is one. the reference to great stalin however was removed. in the mid two thousand the unique annual event started to take place near the camp called pillar around a major arts and culture festival the tree simply was evicted. rock musicians
theater groups poets and dancers used to come and dedicate their performances to the memory of victims of the purges former political prisoners would keep artists company and get a chance to tell their stories. now it's just a modest museum without the hype that artists performers and audiences from all over russia used to bring to it. the government reproached the festival for politicizing the gulag. their eyes huge people who will be put off and still gather around the time the festival used to take place semi spontaneous events like this one dedicated to the victims of the gulag a middle aged by the former festival organizers. victor passed off was a political prisoner at this camp in the one nine hundred seventy s. prison conditions were more lenient. he tells us his fascinating story of the
victim it is which were considered a threat to the state under communism we know it works issues just to we are true of course but i really wish you will always be done i mean really an edge of darkness and throw no well it's a week you know would you choose the rule would come will occur but just meet your family just as you just make sure that we have created will the autumn a good video for you here good to go thirty years worth of mccormick you would move loosely in the to do with the job and here third was a who you. are now vision was you know you don't record they were written from the corner if you're doing a. good magical clue usual you characters are yours and i mastered yeah it's already or not you feel that you're. not a different than you and you know who you are you have for the work the numbers but . i'm not quite

iraq's central government and turkey started joint military maneuvers on the border in retaliation for the vote to his president has denounced the referendum. our armed forces are on the borders with iraq to do whatever it takes iran is well we'll do whatever it takes our air force stands ready we will never allow anyone or anything to go from turkey to iraq this week we will adopt so many other measures will close the borders nothing will go across the border. north korea's top diplomat says president all trumps tweet that leader kim jong un went be around much longer is a declaration of war and he says north korea now has every right to take countermeasures including shooting down u.s. bombers outside of its airspace. last weekend trying to claim that our leadership wouldn't be around much longer and he declared war on our country. the fact that this comes from the united states president is clearly
a declaration of war. since the united states declared war on our country we have every right to make counts measures including the right to shoot down united states strategic bombers even when they're not yet inside north korean as a base. in germany and america has begun the task of building a new coalition after sunday's election a particular out on top but it was a reduced number of seats the far right alternative for germany party has won seats in parliament for the first time taking thirteen percent of the vote at least forty five people are being killed after a series of air strikes in syria's province russian and syrian government jets have escalated strikes on eleven how are provinces in recent days hurrican maria has killed thirty three people across the caribbean in puerto rico medical services are in critical condition because of wide ranging power outages but many hospitals now
running off generators seventy thousand people have also been told to leave areas close to damaged down in case there's severe flooding. in search of putin's russia continues next i'll have news after you off that distance if you can. i've heard of a former labor camp guard who lives in the area i decided to look for and talk to him how does he feel about the suffering the soviet police state inflicted on people by god he was already more than the last. for no god of the old the usual you know normally. when i meet him. or her documented.
and that's where the former labor camp guard has chosen to retire just next to the place of his former employer. the. russians had to toss fake communist past which tolerated no dissent is inconsistent . the soviet union was the superpower russia is not. as many russians urine for their last greatness their moral evaluation of just as committed in the days of glory is blurred.
i have arrived in the city of turkey the cultural center of the europe mountains on the border between europe and asia. i'm going to attend an interesting independently organized conference. on the role of stalin not in historic rome no apparently the terrifying soviet dictator who has been dead for more than sixty years plays an increasingly important road today.
thank you. you look at. the. russian. citizens i've just heard that some people argue that this was a good thing because the victims became martyrs of the russian church necessary for the church to continue its deep tradition if i hadn't heard it with my own ears i wouldn't have believed it possible but apparently it's not the trend for them.
national parliament after the fall of communism. i knew in just a year. you know for. sure. for your months of. the year. yeah they should. get a good lesson. we're going to have a theme here bully menu's mosher stupors life. is bush. sure you. do with. the new. book. or style and i think you're in the middle of the liquor. oh yeah.
you think a british and she were. really . you know you say you want with it would last. pretty i'm sure. like the economic crisis the shadow of the totalitarian state is not immediately noticeable in a russian city on a sunny day. long gone as the ideological harris's of the twentieth century which would lead to nothing more in front of a firing squad. but in place of the class in the me society has
found new people to seek. for she's. going to think we're going to be first going if we make gonski new york your plan will work if she's going to. do to me is just leadership for me did you feel this aggressive man just an unbalanced possible. no just one of the most famous russian politicians from the united russia really. to tally i simply said it's been. here can i do i'm sure i'm sure it wasn't what happened here was the most they were going to do but he was. yeah yeah yeah i mean you have no idea how much you weigh ok you know i'm going to tell you that if you're third i mean i think not to. night but
i'm sure i do you don't even understand how i can handle so many guns keep under the man at the first. became famous and popular on the anti-gay ticket you take some ultra conservative views on something and seize the foundation of his ideology you know the russian orthodox church. and the government. is in. thank. you all right sally it's not. my. days but you can see there was nothing standing here but for
a man of such ultra conservative nationalist views long as has an interesting background he speaks several languages lived in europe and used to be a liberal political activist. that it. is night. here. rastan. what with time to get you know. my you be my hero of. the guns of. august when the court. but got over. what you want. and you have. anybody. you've got the. praise are sure there's
a short. list i'm cup worth i'm. at the very. first. her shop but she would either. remotely be true to that should list or strict top fund me at the fusion. and it's and you take a quick and say yes. month what you will bring it to my community and even. if i were going to start. here million i get a new body and you do and you do worry but here let's do it the workers are afraid to leech nice but the most at the easiest forma but got more just like with of bo
with janja change the any machine yeah yeah it was just an exam was over me i never question private yack use a few that are now b.s. sure. chimbo watched. his was restrained by the s. . s. here actually moonies concept comes off because i wish to use the u.s.d.a. she got tory and then asked me upon us. here which. and. have lived together for five years and have recently married and then. i drop the. parents country house north of.
i didn't know. i was the medium i realize i thought. that was. you but i was it. wasn't. a buzz when i was in you lots of dancing me. another blow was that it was doesn't last let's say my but as a witch of the whiskey really with us it was how it's loosened there were some of those that guy yes you know wasn't that has any chance in a diaz i also when you want to bring in others the muse image and just as he pushes what you see just. as it is suit another when you must and yet produce the way i did those three years he had
a good reason also can use them and i got dog and i did he's going to bring us the ones are much of a thing is yeah. i see bad. history in the rain coming is pretty comparable. and it goes with options to lust but you know it is still to deal it is is it on the wall or the colonel storr the rest of the sawdust or. the muscle in four months that i would hope so e z two d e because of doing our duty he used stores as they should because of which i saw them plenty of. what was so grain shows up as they in the west just underwood's the water to more speed a huge amount of those own the prince of peace. is that is all i get and i must lead. by the usual sirrahs here stick to the car with another word when you
sit down for starters and i was stand up push on them with help of scully. but at the cable i get a nickle to the leg and that last thing and i feel as if that it. for reason that this is still when i see the of the organ or collect to go over it a global we would you. be abusing it certainly in your lunacy. while some western style liberties are under attack in russia there's a class that is liberal culture and enjoying its influence in society and a lavish lifestyle. i was. aware.
next to russia's most glamorous official a famous t.v. personality and putin's god daughter fanny assumption is one of the most fashionable intellectuals writer and review editor. nikolai will scoff. irish to talk to him at the offices of his print and web magazine snowmen which caters for well heeled liberals and opinion for. it occupies a loft in one of the capitals most expensive locations. yet almost all this is a scalpel who is somebody to him but it took more than is it means that's the president that i thought of as which unfortunately. there's a subordinate i wish the worst as they can you can see what you meant by his numbers but you must search them when you post was a sham dunk from the right and i should want to ask you should i put them in the
prestigious new commission in the western was a shame you sensed that i get upset look. like you should not wish to type should not like he just shocked you neutral with my niece because that eventually stepped into the only approach scarier than our first skip doesn't it because he prefers the email server to the biggest so there are more than down for now you're in. the shade ditty weren't really any of them for a list of my other sources i was in the snows of on the scene you're really not an option i so pushed a little trying to move them in front of c.d.'s that's a good move but you should all be keep this which seems to be just we see. them straight up beechwood conception of the section of the. storm. itself that if there is more but with us we should all took a little bit of existential at least by staying at a little bit thirty's that is quite possible opening emulates dealing with the best
. at commission even if it's just in even my commercial come over for your screed you can see it not for coke. or stupid but if there was genuine you don't waste it years and years of chattering is bitter toward the creative steward some would come in the world miscellany you pitch your songs most of what you know with me it was one thousand and one you can remember them of which so your skills stay with said. statement because there. most folks you know so there's a. problem. and it. is but in a day or two states a straw. for kids there would. be pretty. tough problem with.
such a book but when i was working as a simple with. something pro-choice to the nation. in my home city of st petersburg i'm invited to mediate a school conference where students discuss contemporary culture. on my way through i reflect that an entire generation of russians has grown up though personally experience of the soviet union. russia is a totally different country from the one i grew up in or is it just your depression group is still a city of your subjective love we broke up with this didn't you know. your past until we where if you just keep us in the other it's just. that i should get a respite in the. new version is to. say.
yes. i think it's. money education career family love patriotism. what field over the course of these values for the young in russia today. that's a group but i missed the bus scene you know what for the most the mission i'm still it's up. to the list that i missed. did anyways by. a car with. thirty minutes the shirts are you from what i see is more your speed a problem. and you. got a problem here because those who are. used to this sure.
what the. needs of europe i mean a cure what you wanted to break the. me so there was blood. on. your there is no no in the search of the group you. that's still have a great. store and was can i don't get it but i've never made much of. before embarking on this journey i thought i knew almost everything about my
country i was surprised that there was still so much to the. one thing i was confirmed in is that russia sees herself as a civilization apart not necessarily enjoying confrontation but keenly aware of the difference between herself and everyone else. i found that many things that seem contradictory to outsiders a perfectly logical to russian. people here are not represented in power structures in the way that they are in the west yet most trusts say family. more free than the citizens of other countries. an overwhelming number of russians support a strong president yet they don't see him as a dictator they need to extol or fear. for a long time i believe that the powers that be here should be more open to criticism . but i also wonder whether the russians will ever be able to respond well to
criticism coming from outside of their borders. can russia spirit to what the people expect of it. is a strong and brave enough to overcome the economic social and demographic realities that it has a hard time accepting. those are the questions that i'm still seeking answers to. the sky they should be no borders up here. only horizons. as an
airline we don't believe in boundaries we believe in bringing people together the world's better that way. it is a right football of us to go where we need to go to feel with things we want to fail. to see the people we want to see. that's why we'll continue to fly the skies providing you with everything we can and treating everyone how they deserve to be treated we do this because we know that travel goes beyond borders and prejudice. the travel teaches compassion the travel is a necessity. to travel is a right to. remember that this world is full of us to explore. and it's a strange thing for us to be a part. cats are always going places together. ally

that side of the frontal system and he's there most likely through all of tuesday making a rather wet and windy day in oakland little bit better in christchurch less of both the rain and the wind in the sun doesn't do much for temps and he got thirteen trust church come wednesday but all clint ought to be just out in the sunshine at sixteen but there's still rain running through north island as you can see and talking of rain just briefly these last few seconds exceedingly went recently in shanghai and you can see the forecast on tuesday keeps the rain not far away.
