worldwide news live from moscow this is the with me rule research show us good to have you with us today high profile americans linked with torture illegal it rests and abductions of russian citizens of moscow has now published the names of human rights violators is banned from entering the territory by the measure comes off to a similar move from washington against a number of russians which lawmakers in moscow dubbed as russo phobic to give us more of an impression of what actually sparked an escalated a diplomatic standoff a question about now it joins me live here in the studio good to see you so so russia has fought by who's actually on the list why did the state find the need to publish it get to see it here ari so indies russia has released a list off eighteen officials that are from now own banned from entering the russian federation over. violations that is really a direct response to the u.s. . blacklists which is also so-called needs to list that was published only late
7:02 am
friday now before it was published russia warned the us that the response would be similar in accordance with the rules of piracy and that's really exactly what we've been saying right now so the list that was just published by the russian side consists really two parts now the fast one as those lists of people who are responsible for human rights violations at the guantanamo bay and then the second one we share the list so we have those people who are responsible for numerous human rights violations of those russian citizens abroad or whatever let's say let's let's address one of those lists now the shorter one has got four names basically being called the guantanamo bay list if i can come over here we start with david addington he was basically chief of staff for dick cheney and joe davidson was the one who was overseeing various interrogation methods one ton of
7:03 am
obey of course in cuba then we have mr join you from the george w. bush administration didn't he this guy ultimately wrote the torture memos talking about sleep deprivation of waterboarding various type of torture techniques we have david addington joining who coming off to join we have a geoffrey miller ultimately a retired u.s. army official he commanded the u.s. detention facilities at guantanamo bay he was also in charge of abu ghraib in iraq so that one certainly lives on in infamy jeffrey hobson here number four on the list a former u.s. navy guy here ultimately he was in charge of the organization that was supposed to monitor any types of human rights abuses ongoing at guantanamo bay so here we have the four guys on the short list the so-called guantanamo bay list and we do know as far as i understand you are already gauging reaction out of the russian ministry of foreign affairs right trying to have been receiving some comments from russia's foreign ministry and now the ministry says that these sanctions list us. they call
7:04 am
it includes figure is that you just mention are involved in torture add guantanamo bay and there is also this comment wore off list not of our making russia cannot ignore outright blackmail and rousseau fabio washington lawmakers are responsible for a serious blow to russia u.s. relations and it is indeed what we've been seeing right now a very negative signal that has been sent right on the negative signal and also going between washington and of course moscow but also when it comes to the american list that was published late on friday in the past twenty four hours let's let's pause for a moment let's go to an associate you're going to so you can take us back and give us the broader perspective on how school started in the first place. the obama administration has released a list of russians to be blacklisted under the so-called mug despite moscow's calls not to put such a list together in the first place let alone publish it the list includes eighteen
7:05 am
names including sixteen judges and investigators in the united states accused of human rights abuses going to directly to the mother needs case these individuals will be forbidden from getting a u.s. visa as well as have their assets frozen so good magnitsky was a russian lawyer who was arrested for tax evasion in two thousand and eight he died a year later while still in pretrial detention at the age of thirty seven since then the u.s. has eagerly been exploiting the circumstances of my death which president putin said was a tragedy moscow one washington that its handling of the case was a domestic issue for russia and russia alone and that the americans must not interfere responding to the so-called my list russia's prime minister dmitry in the fears of so the u.s. has the right to bar anyone from entering its territory by simply denying them a visa so the purpose of this additional ban is unclear except for its symbolism. well pretty much the same words came from russia's foreign ministry sergei lavrov
7:06 am
who also said that the timing of this publication that was just made by u.s. officials was very poorly chosen and there are also reports that these lists that both sides are already presented to the public are a very well the police are short and there is another extend and a bigger version and both countries both russia and the u.s. possess these types of extended and however there's another point here that it is clear that those russians on the list were never under any investigation really and it has never been proved that there are linked directly to a new human rights abuses now mr gay lover of mansion also who he believes. will closely behind this recent u.s. move. with. the russian move it was conceived by people who are shrewd politically and as far as i
7:07 am
can tell under the influence of mr broder who earned a fortune in russia illegally it's a hop into the unfortunate surrogate work for him in the criminal case which was open against mr broder involved his lawyer mr magnitsky. now who is william browder he is the founder and the coal owner of the hermitage capital management that's the fund that specializes in forming investment into russia need ski was working at this fund he was an encounter and the fund now brodeur is one of the chief suspects in the really and go we major tax evasion case as i just mentioned continues in russia and just recently russia's investigative commission has published several new accusations against brough were there and just imagine the damage to the budget now as to mainz to be somewhere around one hundred million
7:08 am
dollars and browder has not stepped foot on russia since two thousand and five and was charged in the charge an assumption of right that well i mean ultimately what's very interesting to dinner is that the blacklist is actually only paul of moscow's response to america's blacklist of polish will think so what there's a game going on here yes true it does really sim like a game going on here and it is really only a part of a major counter a lot towards washington act now it consists as you just mentioned of different articles for instance ilog concerning the noncommercial are going to came into force in november twenty twelve and it also includes expansion for some american n.g.o.s operating in russia however here i need to mention and that's most more importantly now the recent adoption ban now moscow bans adoption off russian children by u.s.
7:09 am
citizens starting from generally this year and the adoption ban also known as. a flaw was signed pretty shortly after the u.s. passed this so-called magnitsky act and at that time the review sparked some heated debate in both countries in. russia and in the united states what russia has long been demanding information from u.s. authorities on the fate of those russian children who were adopted by u.s. wester parents but this initiative really had very little thick socks in that regard and what is going on right now is that moscow tries to go even further with the issue of child protection right as moscow moscow to try to pursue abuse you of a child security about considers whether to ratify a two international documents aimed at protecting children's rights we're talking about their rights for example protection protect them against prostitution pornography even the sale of children as well now one of the documents comes as part of a wider un convention on the rights of charge children it was accepted and ratified
7:10 am
by every single member of the general assembly except somalia and the united states is curious certainly mira ribbon is a former director of the american adoption congress and she explains why america alternately failed to put down its stamp of approval what's been reported and seems quite logical that the opposition is coming from conservative religious groups and their opposition seems to be based on that it's going to usurp the corrent bill rights and. state and federal laws here in the united states these people are very concerned about rights such as death to the child shouldn't be able to have the choice to choose his own religion they're concerned about their right to punish their children and they're concerned that
7:11 am
ratifying this treaty would interfere with their individual rights. now summing up what we see in the end of the day is that both countries have their own blacklist and both a which consists of eighteen officials. question of a live in the studio thank you. well allegations of plots conspiracies and treachery they're coming in the can a fast in venezuela copping a short but rather presidential campaign some nineteen million venezuela's will vote tomorrow for the next leader that's ahead a country with some of the world's biggest oil reserves. game. chooses president chavez choice runs against a free market poster boy. after calming down self-styled socialism or free market venezuela votes.

7:13 am
a lot of name calling during this campaign period you have a little accusing us of being at the prince of the bourgeoisie not representing the poor calling him capricious some of the other hand she's accusing me of being a liar or using this as a body to launch a political campaign now however they did talk to both of them talk on the issue of tackling crime in the country this is a top concern of the citizens here they want to see the quantum level addressed and brought down the smallest of government bureaucracy and inefficiencies in the work staunchest supporters very loyal to her that this is still for the social socialist revolution big want to continue this and some of them out of this loyalty to vote for nicolas maduro on the other hand you have those people who have been blaming the government for a lot of the problems of the country not least of these two which is why you want to see what they say is a bit of stagnation in terms of the way business is going in the country and they say they will vote for the best so many are watching these elections closely not
7:14 am
least of which is the united states and has had strained relations with the country during the time of google chavez the for everyone else who is observing and want to know what happens next the question they want to answer really is what stuff is that is really going to take in the hands of somebody other than who goes this. reporting. on represent a continuation of his policies but almost certainly have trouble filling his producers shoes that's according to international consultant adrian sol bucci he spoke to my colleague and a bit of a. probably one of the main problems that nicolas maduro has that he does not have the same charisma the same popularity sort of surfing on the hugo chavez wave so to speak and that's why he's using a lot of your memory of hugo chavez the image of hugo chavez the actual ideas and this course that he gave to the people but nicolas maduro himself really has no
7:15 am
special personal power base that he can fall back upon that's why it's really hugo chavez who is in the election through nicolas maduro so to speak on the list take a minute now to talk about the second candidate sure way and rekick a pretty as he wants to create a free market economy is that something venezuelans want as well well some do some don't some but as well as definitely are very tied in with the interests of the united states hugo chavez and hopefully my doodle have done a very good job for them for the region in the long term something that i'm sure mr copley was would not because he would completely aligned venezuela into united states requirements and banking global financial interests are stronger ties with the u.s. if he gets in does that mean that dictate that does that mean the u.s. will dictate more to venezuela in the future than oh absolutely they tried to do it as a matter of fact they tried to do that exactly eleven years ago when on the eleventh and twelfth of april two thousand and two they staged

we've seen opposition movements in order to corrupt them partly in order to have. the elite also in the second in case there is a transition of power having said all that it's not all oppressed opposition figures that washington welcomes for example the us is not going out of its way to free opposition figures brain who are sentenced to life in prison for taking part in protest against the government there are a host the u.s. fifth fleet in the persian gulf so washington has been quite selective as far as who's opposition it supports in washington i'm going to check out. i'm just a moment breaking the set and be mine.
