just after four am this sunday morning here in moscow welcome to our to international i'm you know. your company our top story this hour the british prime minister has admitted the government's response to wednesday's deadly fire in a west london tara block was quote not good enough fifty eight people are presumed dead on police say the figure could rise further as the search continues treason may made her apology as crowds rallied in the capital calling for her resignation was on the see if reports were right outside downing street where if you can see hundreds of people have gathered to protest against a recent me government this was originally intended to be a protest interestingly she's following the election lots of people have been saying that they're unhappy with this now election that theresa may. holds on the
9:02 pm
following polish and that was one of the key thing and this was the original reason but since the tragedy with the grand felt our way as we know believe hundreds left homeless following what's under rubble there well many people are saying this is becoming the final straw with the unhappiness of following the decisions that this government has been making not only that when germany were being old still brought up the idea of giving up the residence were directed by friends fellow residential properties there are some awfully available that area and standing empty in those neighborhoods is something that's been brought into the spotlight and has been also something largely about econ be acceptable but in london we have looked through buildings and luxury flats left empty as land banking for the future while the homeless and the poor look for somewhere to live and this is what some of the protesters have been telling us here throughout the day if the mc and they have
9:03 pm
very few six months why not give them to someone temporarily and i meant it that way he just made it it's been a long drop really foreign investors just come in for stuff all the flights and most of the money even used and yet we have hung the snow switches on the bucket chief's son in the couple so you know there's an obvious inequality that we need to start thinking about the people that actually live here not the people that are buying houses you know for millions of pounds and then leaving them in fifty six seven months what happened was by many here see it as something that's just a symbol of the huge disparity that exists here in the u.k. and in london between the wealthier and those who are a little less well off people have been gathering out a church near grand cell tower to pay their respects to the victims and offer support along with the volunteer as well as former world champion boxer america. so i want to call me i have a foundation myself i want to call me and show my support by doing a charity work raising money for these people and also to. from the police what the
9:04 pm
what why was this situation now the fire happened and everything else and what a situation like at the moment i really believe we can we can knock them down do you not think if you read to me you did not. know your end of her rope. well look i want to we are going to treat everyone with. i think what can she do i think she's just got to start acting as a actually the you know coming out and talking to people and engaging with people in a human way as opposed to acting like you're always at a press press briefing every time there is a long string of things and i think it's just been more and more frustration from even from myself as a british citizen of someone that is supposed to be this strong and stable leader and you show nothing but the opposite and i think is really getting to a boiling point where we do know in the coming days prime minister trees may is expected to name a judge to lead a public inquiry into the ground felt our fire she also told consuls to conduct
9:05 pm
urgent safety checks on all similar tower blocks now a kid five million pounds to help the survivors. moving on officials in afghanistan say seven american troops have been wounded in an attack by a rogue soldier on a base in the north of the country the u.s. has dismissed earlier reports that american soldiers being killed the taliban says it was responsible although the claim is disputed we heard from a journalist in kabul. an afghan soldier used a rocket propelled grenade during a military exercise on the way to the shooting range or the shooting range and according to this officer several u.s. soldiers were wounded this comes not long after a commando killed at least three u.s. soldiers in the eastern province of. the base where the incident today took place is where at least ten on attackers killed more than one hundred forty army soldiers
9:06 pm
in april and what was a massive security breach you have to remember the taliban are expanding their area for a crude meant from where the afghan police and army recruits so the risk of afghan soldiers or new recruits being turned into taliban infiltrators is really high only came as the country's defense minister welcomed a decision by the u.s. to the point four thousand more troops to afghanistan that's a move many see is unlikely to improve the situation. with these four thousand troops they cannot defeat the taliban in afghanistan they just won the fighting to continue so they can achieve their goals with more american troops in afghanistan people will get more frustrated and insecurity will increase i think i would agree with many afghans in this what afghans are really asking is two things one is push
9:07 pm
for peace process and second pressurising the pakistani taliban sanctuaries are actually terror because troops the military solution is no is not a solution for the afghan problem and i think the americans must have realised as well because you see there are similar comments coming from the american officials particularly those from india on policy but you know it's contradicting with what they're doing and what they're saying at one hand they believe that it has to be peace process peace settlement that can. work but in the other hand they are sending additional troops. switching gears now moving to football where the first day of the confederations cup has come to a close in a winning start for a host russia who beat new zealand in st petersburg with more in that game plus all the latest from the terminal indeed all the issues surrounding it here's neil
9:08 pm
harvey and stan collymore. the ratio may just be to draw to a close here in st petersburg russia after they secured a two you know victory over new zealand and they have a game alongside me and call them all stand we're going to take our viewers through the goals of the first goal for the russia dominated play in the first twenty minutes really good little lift of the goalkeeper there. after say feel a little bit sorry for the new zealand goalkeeper because he was very good throughout the game ball comes in from the rights and side bryza central striker as an attacking midfielder you just need to get in the box to make sure that you can finish off so very good run that was the second goal ok we also we were not
9:09 pm
a great day really into speaking to to the top players and we grabbed a few moments with the guys themselves from the russian team after their victory here's what they had to say it was huge first of all we play for our fans and i think today we made them happy i think it was a good game but the most significant thing is that we won everything else is less important doubling you sure you steve that we learn we didn't spoil this great day for our fans that's important for me there was a lot of pressure on us of course with the hosts we played for the first time in front of our president and i go along to hopefully bigger and better things if your support to the partridge was the same pay to fund song imagine she met quite a few public funds if she can imagine the noise here is really quite something not an easy let the blue touch paper think it's also lead to be a cake series while there's plenty of beer flying when it is off to rule the city of culture and just before we have kick off in this very very merry and happy of environments we speak to some of the fans and they were anticipating
9:10 pm
a very good sort of meant as well will became the rush hour. you we've been keeping a marvelous country it's amazing what you have here and your history of this cliche details that there are still their world so we wanted to know your country and panel for many have been there every day she had this time and i'm very much excited. and then. she could tell by seville the year the cheering fans there and i think you were just lucky enough to miss some of the fans will keep it as well you have to say it's fine voices now so when you said you're happy environment for the russia for the fight fans is in the first match of the confederations cup you can hear them that you know all those funds are very happy but if they've been listening to some of the western media they might not be even turn to people watch the game some fans who came here were warned by the media back in the home countries about what they might come across during the competition the new zealand herald for example
9:11 pm
published an article that accused russian fans of racism and said that they could not be trusted for trying to our correspondent met up with some new zealand supporters right here in st petersburg and he asked them about what were their experiences of the place so far i have spoken to a number of new zealand fans outside the stadium you come up to them you ask them about the will against you ask them about the problems then they look back at you and they're powerful all these people have told me that they're having an amazing time in st petersburg they haven't experienced any problems and definitely they wouldn't believe and they disagree with the stuff was written in the household of the russian hooligans on an overnight if you want to die the stakes east this russian playboy is absolutely fantastic he will be a need for arbor a way to help and the russian people have extended their hospitality the last of. it are an amazing place show found us a bit is this true we did he actually it is it's very quiet it's these are trouble
9:12 pm
that we've seen in this town center on street pockets we have to believe in the pockets. the stuff so you know one of the great benefits of the car federations cup will be the memories that the fans will bring back home but there are no british teams taking part in this tournament so there won't be many people coming back to the cape tell the brits how people in this country really do get offended when u.k. media are saying that football culture in russia is only about violence yes of course there are some problems still but issues exist in any country in fact here's a little history lesson for you in football is when did football related violence first become a problem we don't know for sure but it can be traced way back to fourteenth century england back then it wasn't so much the beautiful game as a rowdy mass brawl between rival villages kicking a pig's bladder across town committed with the second word this could lead to
9:13 pm
social unrest and family get the cases of football hooliganism in the modern game fast forward to the eighty's that's when the so-called roughs started causing trouble at football matches talking rival fans and players as well as referees but the heyday of football hooliganism and the actual term came about a century later starting from the sixty's clashes between rival supporters of the both of them to plug a nice fights between large gangs of hardcore fans the so-called phone in the first five years of the decade is twice as much violence is that the previous twenty five british hooliganism spread rapidly during the seventy's and eighty's becoming known abroad as english disease groups it's a tragic peek at the european cup final in one thousand nine hundred five when the liverpool fans attacked their italian rival causing a rule in the stadium to collapse killing thirty nine people after the disaster in
9:14 pm
this clubs were banned from pool in european contests factors the government wants to plan. it is but the one nine hundred ninety two related violence in the u.k. gradually began to wane but the reputation. when england failed to qualify for the one nine hundred ninety four usa world cup committee chief was delighted that we know england for. it with three countries in the world whose presence would have created logistical problems so we're very pleased they will be coming that's the route i'm playing. in the coming years many key international tournament swimmers quite badly behaved in the. nowadays football hooliganism is a pool small thing in english but the international disease one grants thankfully isn't as prevalent as it used to be. ok and so and i want to use a word now that i enjoyed i know you you appreciate these meanings of all context
9:15 pm
so let's just say we know it's a small number of hooligans that are out there let's just say it's a few doesn't say it but probably got forty five thousand capacity stadium for example it takes about tax stadium that's less that's well no point one percent of the people in the founds accused of being involved in trouble get entire nation blamed for the actions of a tiny number of people and from a that. is the problem i've seen it with the contador support of trouble and supported as a farm as a broadcaster and it didn't look you know where the three lions and england found their reputation preceded them and still continues to do and i think what's happened is these a lot of the anger a lot of the fear of what happened when we saw violence in marseilles for example i was there last year is that's been transposed into a whole nation is pretty a lot of fear mongering i saw it before the european championships back in two thousand and twelve in ukraine there was a documentary that say do not go to ukraine if you're english if you're asian if
9:16 pm
you're black so i went there is a broadcast with. right deal of trepidation what you don't find nothing but calling this government supporters mingling a muffler means the biggest and the saddest thing about all these torments is that people want to get together and have a poll to every four years it's a world cup and a european championship. thanks santa tons which is not true for people going to go in to say pete is good pub sick with the local fans are going to watch local and save the game sedates texas because she's. the she's a real welcome i think the real rush shit we asked awesome action joey home out of the hands. how big of a hobby like this was an eight person full of russian national sake was going to get the call display a lot of snow. sounds. sleeveless
9:17 pm
would be very good price since come to the world cold will slap full flags asian football fans feel welcome is a place for them russia says lima was not because of just. simply a look almost from the shoulders when you look at the spot but that commission on the tour singled out the poll said a couple of years ago that every time he played there was an issue of five space race chats columns about how the city with us going to the polls really wasn't better than your family's home for example because you do need investment you still have to buy these cars which you feel so used to but you talk about the mantra should remain to be admissable and you'll see that with the shitty thought that the u.s. is to this result but the best yes or no. sight very good. we do want to talk about little belong to things all the nicer things that we talked
9:18 pm
about predictions today list look at the pumps up like i said good. because boy was this painful decision made to look at this i don't want to choose this supposed to be like paul the octopus you choose one of the countries is it new zealand is it russia one of the bowls of food you think a cat would leave that much encourage one that this one did this was a reluctant hero and this is the action replayy you see the lady. sings something she could not floggers are there. for the fruit juice dixie snow to see going to school is he going to drop his nose into it go on achilles we're all a little bit you alone can we see it going soon yeah definitely rochelle i thought when i said we need to i think we need phone line technology just to see whether there was actual contact with the food that ok let's move on now to nick at the hole about who is also throwing her weight in gold contradiction to the confederacy everybody wants to be a star look at that that's how you make a decision to say to be straight i want you don't want to be in the wild with. me
9:19 pm

9:20 pm
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
9:21 pm
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 confirming that these allegations are nothing but false one of the. questions were. public present but he said he's already said it that he has no evidence that only asked for the resources that all the resources were there good going nyet and now c.n.n. is raising eyebrows with their exact quote being or what as the reaction to
9:22 pm
mr rosenstein is anonymous sources statement wow can it get any better than this in the world of mainstream media even managed to offer the justice department beguile francis and thiago r.t. . us later strikes have killed hundreds of civilians in the area surrounding rock in syria according to un panel the islamic state stronghold is under siege by u.s. backed local forces with the support of western work across the border in iraq civilian deaths are also rising in mosul which is seen as being really under a similar scenes for months not all rights groups have accused the u.s. coalition of using incendiary weapons near civilians in both cities in what could potentially a mind to war crimes reporting enough first came up more than the u.s. coalition is more than willing to update the world on its activities against the
9:23 pm
islamic state in iraq and syria who have successfully been able to take ground from isis already in rocca i recently walked the streets of east and west mosul and 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 rocket intensification of the strikes we have believe that the ground for the advances in iraq has resulted not to all the staggering loss of see if you don't live but because also led to two hundred hundred sixty thousand civilians fleeing their homes. displease 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
9:24 pm
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 airplanes hit our streets 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 that this chemical put 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 in iraq previous occasions but since a dental effects can cause terrible injuries to
9:25 pm
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 we show them from one position to another iraq shiria 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. it to a story we talked about first yesterday a search for seven american sailors who went missing after a collision off the coast of japan has now entered indeed its second day an american navy destroyer struck
