one of the afternoon here in moscow eleven am in the u.k. this saturday the seventeenth of june revel watching around the world warm welcome for me kevin owen here to art international this hour and again our top stories coming from london today thousands of protesters of march there demanding justice and help be given to the victims of the grenfell fire angry crowds blame the conservative government and its austerity policies for the tragedy that happened in that apartment block the official death toll has reached thirty but it's expected to rise further with up to seventy people still unaccounted for. mark i thank i think i have. a he was over the
course of this demonstration this mosque this march we managed to speak to some very very angry people however people get to go home bedrooms at night there are people who have to sleep on the floor and. now i don't know everything and everything we need people. in life to. for centuries decades or so about now it's about every minute that we've been lied to that our government has been license was covering stuff up and we thought enough to bring because there are no one says the press is the people of boston you got people killed as a result of their doings someone should be able to count to the school for a month or two we have a government that's coming out of prime minister that came to the scene of the crime and you have the decency to meet resident weighs the elements and swayze weighs the paper weighs everyone that leaves the nice flat sways all the tendency equate ways that the knee still occupy is that need to know when i sat the anger on the protesters should by violence is hard to say that the official response from
being completely inadequate and many of the people who are angry about the planning which was done the food the building of the gas the systems were put in the room in the stairwell so when those coal fire it was a death trap and nobody could escape also the fact that ten million dollars spent on cosmetic changes to the outside of the building to make it look better off for rich residents who live nearby and it was that external cladding which caused the fire to spread so quickly and take so many lives so these protests is very angry at the time and but this is going to be a transformative point in the history of this country. judging by the response of members of the public or walking by and in their cause beeping in support that is a very popular course trees of may be visiting people hospitalized in the blaze she's also allocated five million pounds to those affected and demanded a full inquiry into the fatal tragedy but next the results is pretty boy to reports
the u.k. prime minister is being blamed for more than just a response to the fire when your own ideas fail just borrow your parents. no one and no community is left behind doesn't that sound a lot like this no one and no community is left behind and this no community and no one is there behind this nobody and no community should ever be left behind in fact jeremy corbyn used that throughout the labor party leadership race last summer he even used it to launch labour's election campaign for the general election perhaps treason may thought that borrowing a labor phrase would help attract some extra support given how badly she fadden has self-imposed snap general election a vote in which jeremy corbyn went from zero to hero. like
a political chameleon to reason may has borrowed more than have fair share from the right as well in the run up to the e.u. referendum she was a quiet remain a but this was back then. people say the e.u. does not make us more secure because it does not allow us to control our border. but that is not true we were the voters but we want our country back a new role for ourselves in the world as a strong country with control over our borders. the single market accounts for a huge volume of all trade look at the facts the potential risks to jobs the uncertainties for our economy if we were to leave the european union framework of the single market i would say is a beginning but you must be optimistic about what i am proposing cannot mean
membership of the single market nigel farage accused of stealing all his policies by getting britain outside the european union controlling immigration and helping small businesses and for years old the british prime minister was running on exactly the same ticket while thrilled to ukip supporters flocked to join the conservative party when public opinion skewed right to reason may adjusted her speech and her ideas to fit the agenda when it swung back to the left so did her rhetoric it's textbook electioneering but as to reason may's disappointing results at the polls have demonstrated relying on it too heavily may do more harm than good poll ratings are now as low as jeremy corbin at the start of the snap election campaign that's not deterred the labor leader from borrowing some of the reason may's campaign phrases but only for
a law and i'm sure you'll move forward to world during the queen's speech just as soon as the coalition of chaos has been negotiated. possible the labor party stands ready to offer a strong. politico r.t. london. elsewhere reported today the. u.s. justice department has been giving advice to the american public on handling potential fake news especially concerning anonymous sources in a statement by the deputy attorney general he said caution should be exercised when watching or reading news attributed to unnamed officials next of a girlfriend says and the argo explains why the justice department has spoken out. the pedia turny general rosenstein statement has raised quite a few eyebrows especially considering that as of late majority of the american press relies on nothing but not
a most sources on the den of sources two sources with links to the counter intelligence community anonymous sources according to anonymous washington post source while the mainstream media seems to love them the justice department is busy reviewing all the fakes no wonder they're getting quite fed up with them at the d.o.j. take a look at this washington post headline claims that rosenstein threatened to resign after the white house cast him as the prime suspect for suggesting to fire the x. of the i directed james komi when asked about this by journalists mr rosenstein claimed he never said such a thing now c.n.n. a regular in anonymous sources came out saying that according to sources told me would testify that he never told trump that he was not under investigation only as kind of a slick i took away from it what he did which was he said i've been assured that i'm not under any investigation so trump took away kind of this blanket assurance
which we believe comey will say he did not give the president but when mr comey testified he said the exact opposite he actually told mr trump three times that mr president you are not under investigation c.n.n. even retracted their article confirming the original fake news story or how about this new york times article where not even a sources cited but rather the n.y.t. types it out like a fact that komi days before being fired asked the d.o.j. for more prosecutors and personnel to accelerate the f.b.i.'s investigation into alleged russia's interference in the presidential election but guess what the justice department flatly denied that komi met with rosenstein to ask for more resources and here is house majority leader kevin mccarthy can. firming that these allegations are nothing but faults one of the questions were. for public reserve but he said he's already said it that he has no evidence dick only asked for the
resources that all these agents with good glowing n.y.t. and now c.n.n. is raising eyebrows with their exact quote being or what as the reaction to mr rosenstein is anonymous source a statement wow can it get any better than this in the world of mainstream media even managed to offer their justice department big advances and giago r.t. . at least eighteen people have been arrested during a protest in the us state of minnesota now after a police officer who shot dead a black man was found not guilty of manslaughter. hundreds took to the streets and blocked roads after the court's decision was announced thirty two year old philander cuz still it was gunned down in front of his girlfriend and her daughter during a routine traffic stop last july the police officer who pulled the trigger was charged with several counts including second degree manslaughter but has been fully cleared the victim's family called the ruling racially motivated despite the
office's acquittal he has been dismissed from g.t. . the u.n. and human rights watch dogs are seriously concerned of what they say is a mounting civilian death toll from u.s. led airstrikes against islamic state and the reported numbers of much higher than those admitted by washington. the u.n. says hundreds of civilians have reportedly been killed in recent astroids in the embattled syrian city of raka the eisel held there is under siege by the u.s. backed local forces in support of western warplanes but across the border in iraq. civilian deaths are also being reportedly on the rise in the islamic state stronghold of mosul which is again but under a similar siege for months the u.s. led coalition has also been accused of using chemical weapons near civilians in
both cities in what could potentially a full to war crimes. reports. the u.s. coalition is more than willing to update the world on its activities against the islamic state in iraq and syria who have successfully been able to take ground from isis already in rocka are recently walked the streets of east and west mosul i saw for myself that markets and their businesses are reopening so things are moving around the city and living their lives however u.n. investigators paint a very different picture of iraq in just a few. strikes we each have behaved at the ground for the various. has resulted not to all the staggering loss of see if you don't life but because also led to two hundred hundred sixty thousand civilians fleeing their homes. in devon to displease the united states insists that less than five hundred civilians
have been killed throughout the entire campaign over the last three years in iraq and syria however the united nations points out that three hundred civilians have been killed in the last four months in iraq alone and the situation in mosul is even worse this is just one example one of these strikes in the area that somewhere between fifty and eighty civilians may have been killed the airplanes hit our street and we went to rescue people under the rubble we risk you do as we could see and then we left the area on top of that the u.s. led coalition is being accused of using white phosphorous. u.s. leaders won't confirm whether or not they're using the lethal chemical munition. however they say that if they are they're doing it in a manner that's consistent with international law but human rights watch points out this chemical puts civilians in great danger burning their flesh down to the bone
even a minor burn from this toxic powder can be fatal white phosphorus has been used in syria and iraq previous occasions but since a dental effects can can cause terrible injuries to a question is what is it hitting on the ground and adequate provisions being taken to ensure that civilians and not falling victim to white phosphorous that's the nature of urban warfare fighting in close confines with civilians and legitimate targets closely mixed in with each other and there's only one way forward for the u.s. coalition we have already shifted from attrition. from one position to another iraq syria to annihilate two billion cattle or a fact of life in this sort of situation looks like the united states has made their choice about how they're going to go about defeating i still the only question left is how many more people are going to die for that to happen. r.t. new york if you're
a football fan you know very well huge event coming up here in russia for the next two and a half weeks and ended with after the break we talked to russia's all time well off the bright to get his thoughts then on the confederations cup let's kick it off open simply this book today just ahead. well for the present in this. city doesn't seem marshmallows as the ground solution the president said again and again he does not belong. in here for the long haul. so there's no read need for him to imply that you would like to. extend martial law for personal reasons or personal.
i don't seek out a kind of strategies anyway i only. think it's good for. you have a team of four with grief. and then you know divorce immediately i think that's a. bad historical moment in the middle east and it is very difficult to predict how things will be called. again so then the biggest football event of the summer is kicking off here in russia a bit later today neil harvey along with award winning sports broadcaster callable will be updating us on all the news of the fifa confederations cup over the next two point five weeks or so as fans are getting ready today for the opening match let's have a look at what they can expect that. so
kiddo it's sunny it is beautiful it doesn't get more picturesque than this we will witness the opening ceremony of this year's confederations cup football talk all things footy over the next two hours we have alongside me the award winning stanley called a boy starting to happen now in some pretty to prove what a beautiful day for the tournament to start all about isn't it excitement building up to the games what do you think about the save me much don't lose that's the mantra in any tournament around the world slightly different today because the russian team is a fairly new team it's a young team it's a vibrant. and may have to get the nation on side they have to get them three in the middle for football again after a disappointing european championship tournament for new zealand slightly different they're trying to break out of the shadow of rugby union the most popular sport in
new zealand we talk about the pressure on these these teams for today's opening match i think there was visible pressure on the kill east the carriage you'll find out why run this video because it takes a long time to get up them to match fitness theory achilles he's the official animal oracle for this year's fifteen federations cup the supposed to predict the outcome of the games i told him the new paul the octopus and he's got a back up job which i think was a smart move given today's performance he works at the famous servitude museum just alongside us so what do you think about they see basically me under his way around didn't want to make a decision a little bit tentative it was a game of two halves all of the cliches there but eventually he went off we had a little sniff around any problem for russia the home side to get away and didn't eat the food i think that showed that he was incorruptible was going to take the brunt of the food but but chose russia independently. to do is closer to the first game than we are because she's so the states. typical for live broadcasting as you
can hear behind me the p.a. system is not cranking up it's now time sounding vision they're testing all the p.a. systems inside also within the compound itself will begin to tell you when is but you have the volunteers arriving then you have the antiterrorism police then you have the police cadets and then after that you had what would be a kind of off duty army cadets you with a volunteer who is very effectively it's now a say the testing time is over they've got everything in place that the people in place they've got the checks that the security issues said the opening ceremonies looking about four thirty local time six o'clock so it's kind of like basically now everything's in order it's time for the fans to arrive. against new zealand will take place in the newly built some pages big stadium with a small design overlooking the baltic sea coastline which you can look with on the sings of the arena earlier.
