sure there. was. a. tough week for the british prime minister she faces calls to resign over one hundred of the grenfell tower tragedy while protesters take to the streets. of moscow demands explanations from washington over it shooting down of a syrian fighter jets as russia responds thereby tracking u.s. and coalition aircraft as potential targets. and we now know the four teams through to the semifinals of the confederations cup astrally and germany have done enough in their deciding games we'll have a live update from our special studio in sochi.
you're watching that we can use round up here on r.t. international thank you for joining us. and you start in the u.k. where at least six people including three children have been injured after a car plowed into predestines outside a sports center in the northeast city of newcastle a woman who'd been celebrating the end of the muslim holy month of ramadan was driving the car that hit the crowd outside of the westgate sports center the center had been hosting the celebrations and police say a forty two year old woman has been arrested but added they don't believe the incident was terrorism it comes a week after a man drove a van into people leaving a mosque in london an incident that is being classed as terrorism. well meanwhile hundreds of people in london have been evacuated from their tower block homes amid fears of a repeat of the ground felt our disaster more than thirty books have failed fire.
safety tests across the country well the ground felt tower disaster britain's deadliest fire in over a century claimed at least seventy nine lives the fire was only put out more than twenty four hours later and prime minister to reason they admitted government haven't done enough to respond to the disaster but her apology didn't stop hundreds of protesters from across the demanding justice for the victims. the support on the ground for families in the initial hours was not good enough people were left without belongings without ribs over their heads without even basic information about what happened what they should do that was a failure of the state local and national to help people when they needed it most as prime minister i apologize for that failure and as prime minister i've taken responsibility for doing what we can to put things right and i think that. when they lie you enjoy my life when they.
make choices but it. was. was a key thing after this massacre that i could just by people and everyone's going to shout serious say you know this is mean justice and lois needs to be trying and why is the house so getting away with this sort of. the fact. the i wasn't there it was really treated like that what do you think to to reason my you should take all the blame for this we all introduce remote through all those people in the house of parliament i've got a good part to play for us all victims of the grand blaze may have been exposed not only to smoke and fire but also to a highly toxic gas that's according to expert analysis of the tragedy hospital reports say they were treating three people from cyanide poisoning one of the most
dangerous forms an expert has claimed the insulation boards used on the tower produce a deadly gas when burned the cladding which was highly flammable material used on the outside of the building is also under scrutiny. well the reason why house ordered a public inquiry into the tragedy of pledged an initial five million pounds to help the victims and assess a choker went out in london asking whether the u.k. should rethink its spending priorities but british government is spending this money on certain things which speaks to think they're spending. with thirteen billion to the n.h.s. social care as in the seventy million user to social care and that's what they're spending on that. they're spending three hundred seventy million on me for saying bob's insight you're sorry this is how much is going to the survivors right. it's actually shocking when you see like. five then yeah. yeah.
that's the fund the government but they can spend three hundred seventy or bachmann follow this book impose really need refurbished really. does. it's shameful shameful. and this week the u.k. also marked one year since a virtue to leave the european union though the actual divorce talk so that he just got underway the referendum result caused a political earthquake the off the shocks of which are still being felt today. i will move a motion in the house of commons calling for a general election to be held on the eighth of june driesum a wanted to strengthen her and embrace negotiations with european leaders she needed a mandate for her still standing his divorce from the e.u. breaks it wrecks it for tourism a breaks it means giving up access to the e.u. single market and customs union in full control of u.k.
borders and new compromise on the free movement of people but instead of a mandate to reason may go to hung on the white criticism of the brakes position no deal for. it's better than a deal or no deal would be a very very bad for now will britain needs to work council and you break the plan which is not easy but the divided parliament the democratic unionist party which may hope to form a majority with opposes the heartbreaks it well the u.k. position leaves more questions than answers some fear the negotiations which have already started will bring little progress so we wait for second breaks that referendum not likely even labor are resigned to this break up like that except respects the result of the referendum there won't be a bluff you know come leaving. the conditions of the divorce agreements and now even more uncertain than ever things he should go from the normal messy to fix.
well the process officially started when brussels received a letter from to reason may finally declaring the intention to leave the bloc well many british citizens still strongly oppose the decision and some once again express that anger on friday boyko takes us through the twists and turns of britain's rocky road to the breakup. it was a very changed the course of history the forty eight percent who voted to stay were outraged although the others they were delighted the show has risen. to become a national bank holiday we will call it a. night your firearms may have been jumping the gun his so-called independence day is still a distant prospect the referendum result killed the political career of david
cameron and allowed home secretary to resume aid to step up to the plate in the run up to the vote she had been a quiet remain but the desire to lead post brags that britain forced her to reconsider her position bricks it means bricks it and we're going to make a success of it a year down the line that sounds like something from an alternate universe considering that reason may hold an election in order to strengthen her hand in the braggs it talks but ended up freefall in the polls and losing her parliamentary majority her atrocious result meant the politically weakened government limped into negotiations with brussels earlier this week and bear in mind these talks were never going to be a walk in the park chum. but it. can be
concluded quickly. threats against question has been issued by european politicians commission was trying to bully the british people arguments over whether the u.k. would pave the e.u.'s one hundred billion gregg's it bill guaranteeing the rights of he uses isn't is in the u.k. and who would get custody of gibraltar what. issues but there is aroused took a back seat when britain was hit by a wave of terror for terror attacks in the space of just three months to be precise and many britons held to resume a directory responsible because she'd been head of the home office for six years before becoming prime minister. and with all the security and political chaos few people even notice that earlier this week briggs it negotiations officially kicked off but not in the way that london would have hoped the british government's
already been accused of caving into brussels over the braggs its schedule and opinion polls now show that if the country got to vote again it would reject leaving the u. so just like two reason may the plan for braggs it went from strong and stable so weak and wobbly within the space of just one year. now moscow announced this week that it's halting military cooperation with washington over syria after the coalition shut down a syrian war plane last sunday russia's defense ministry warned it will now track any u.s. led coalition aircraft in western syria as potential targets and russia's foreign minister says the americans have some explaining to do. yes the idea is. because least you see what i see if there is a mechanism to avoid syria airspace incidents between russia and the us that is now
suspended after the us shut down the plane we have requested a detailed explanation through the ministry of defense we expect that it will be provided by the us. well the pentagon earlier claimed it had shot down the syrian jet in self-defense after it bombed u.s. backed militants but damascus says its plane was attacking islamic state well the syrian jet was down near the iso held city of raka which is under siege by u.s. backed local troops it's not the first time though the u.s. led coalition has targeted pro assad forces in the war zone last month in southern syria the coalition also bombed pro-government forces several times after accusing them of violating so-called de confliction zones well arty's and so now it takes a closer look at the latest round. the u.s. shoots down a syrian plane over syria in self-defense the only action that we have taken
against pro regime forces in syria and they've been to specific incidents have been in self-defense let's imagine a random guy comes into your house with a gun and shoots your dog and then he's like it was just self-defense i wanted to make sure there was no why lynds going on here d. as coalition speaking of deescalation after this self defense move the situation couldn't be worse russia and now considers all u.s. led coalition planes in the area of potential targets and are tracking them all of this happened as both the u.s. and syrian government backed up by the russian air force were fighting isis in the stronghold of raka now washington and moscow have locked horns in syria again focus has shifted and isis is probably breathing a deep sigh of relief while watching syrian fighter jets crash in flames on the horizon good job superpowers you're not so super slick. tensions flared
even further on tuesday after the u.s. led coalition shot down another syrian aircraft and drone the pentagon claims the armed drone had been advancing on u.s. backed forces in southern syria once again the coalition said the downing of the aircraft was motivated by self defense analysts warned washington is playing a dangerous game. did the americans react to the syrian threat as a source or were they trying to assert sovereignty over syria if you think about it really ever since the early one thousand nine hundred ninety s. have been used to it being able to patrol will they go to the enemy skies with impunity and they feel threatened and also the allies on the ground are threatened so there is a risk that in fact they may try to assert themselves against any syrian or russian limitations on their activities over syria and that of course then could spiral out of control who has a very dangerous situation although some people in washington are saying are the russians will never stand up to us well maybe not but what if brygada are we going
towards you know more suspension of cooperation i think that's what some people in the u.s. administration actually won so they don't meaning they don't want to have the cooperation between the u.s. and russia maybe not necessarily trump himself but i think you do have figures who are very anti russian in the administration a step by step but a trump is bearing down to the anti russian voices in his in his administration i think we are heading towards a more suspension of cooperation and more hostility between moscow and washington which could mean some very bleak scenarios for the future and the tensions on the ground in syria are accompanied by anger at home at washington's latest military moves president trumps administration is facing criticism for breaking its pre-election vows to scale back foreign interventions. this is illegal war at this point then there's
a practical question the practical question is doing anything you want killing every perceived enemy in every perceived leader of chieftain of people and so misbegotten village is it helping trump made it clear that defeating terrorism and putting an end to the trend of u.s. interventions in the middle east were top priorities so he opted for granting more power to the military what i do is i authorized by military we have the greatest military in the world ok but if it helps eradicate eisel what's the problem well first we have the us training and giving arms to a bunch of anti-government forces one of them the new syrian army would really like to topple assad then there's the syrian democratic forces largely consisting of kurds who would really love to grab more power from the government and eventually become independent so once i suppose finish we will have fully trained armed to the teeth forces controlling significant chunks of syrian territory partially hostile to the government what could possibly go wrong so it seems in this effort to defeat the us could in fact be fanning new hotbed of tension if you like washington has
a case of tunnel vision trying to solve only one problem without seeing the bigger picture sound familiar and should iraq anyone but history teaches us nothing clearly not even past tweets such as this one from donald trump to then president obama in two thousand and thirteen he warned that nothing good would come to the u.s. from attacking syria apparently hindsight isn't twenty twenty one to get to the white house duck and booga r.t. washington d.c. . coming up after this short break we'll bring you all the latest from the final group matches in football's confederations cup. europe is the capacity to integrate. the refugees at the same time we cannot accept everybody that comes to all come from countries all
countries have the control of their borders looks all come through so beautiful so as the rights to control its borders. make this manufacture consent to stick to public wells. when the ruling class is protect themselves. with the final merry go round. we can all middle of the room sit. room. welcome back now let's cross live to aspect studio in such
a way neil harvey and stan collymore hop the latest from the confederations cup. well to sort of see the same a fine line up is now complete let's cut to the chase it's germany and it is chile who will complete the final four alongside me stan collymore you made some predictions earlier alongside nick of the bad come on come on let's let's just see how we did because paul the octopus back in germany in two thousand and six was very good nick of the berries get in there germany as we expected when the first game you both thought i was going to happen was up yesterday germany three cameroon one very good camera and were in the first off apply very aggressive very youthful but the german quality kind through carried there in by t.s. off annoying he's first appearance of a conflict called first draw and team of burnout watch out for the straw in the next twelve months he will be in the germany squad to play for the world cup when
the germans come back here he scored two goals the first time a german high school two goals in the confederations cup and then of course it again chile against australia almost completely wrong chile would have been fairly comfortably a very strong chile and saw it against an australian side which is very useful five or six changes might be for the game and a really creditable draw from the australians let's just you know pay some of the bad went from australia which was on the cards for the first forty five minutes but you know for both of you no real surprise then in the last four lines now you just look at the lineup now it's obviously going to be chilly against portugal that's faithful rank for against people ranked christiane algos portugal of course wednesday we will bring about one other one is germany against mexico the world champion three the germans run seventeen mexico so if i was a betting man and i'm not i would have german a still against chile following germany get to stay in sochi which is what they
wanted to be placed with that ok let's bring in. now mom both of these former australian aston villa's so many of the teams he playful and you know what he said . so let you speak to him first what's happening sung. good evening meal good evening stan good to hear from you mate. great to hear from you you obviously watch the game you've been in russia for the last couple of days let's start with the football for us. very creditable australian performance today . fantastic performance standards that they surprised us all it's occupancy their best performance on the today new manager for a very long time that was better than chile in the first half and they more than match them during the second half as well chile to be fair stepped up again second half and equalized rodriguez but overall a strike and feel very very proud of their performance there for a while there it looked as though the great upset was on. a mock we're over in
sochi revenue great time i hope you having as much fun in moscow as i understand you've been there a couple of days where your impressions of the place. was absolutely fantastic i mean look you know obviously a lot of people especially in the west of australia. very very concerned about traveling anywhere these days and i was different to come in here but i was wonderfully surprised not only here in moscow which is. absolutely mobbed the city the culture the architecture everything get bad is just first class but st petersburg i was there for nearly a week and that was absolutely outstanding as well and the main concerns obviously people asking me about in australia is number one the security and security second set on it's absolutely world class the food has been fantastic the people have been very very helpful and so many people i know in australia now dying to come here for the world cup there's only one thing that i think is wrong is that the taxi drivers drive to. the signing of the balls in terms of australia and what they need to do
now of course to. said you right in front of them in the one hall from b. i should group they go to tokyo on the thirty first of august we're hoping obviously the socceroos will be back in the store next year. yes we do stan that's a very good point the big game for us is that game against japan they need to get a point if they don't get a point they will definitely come third which will mean they'll have to go through a playoff scenario where they'll take on the third team from the operation group which looks as i will be on to south korea. if they triumph in that game that they will take on the fourth place team called we should be one of mexico honduras panama costa rica trinidad so that won't be easy if we get a point and when he gets thailand japan must play saudi arabia that last game so i will take something off each other and then we should be able to get in the top two places and tommy automatically if not it's going to be a real toss of
a coin because the plaster guy is very very difficult. to please you enjoying your time in russia if you can make it to sochi make sure you make the most of moscow they call it the city that never sleeps is very true have a fantastic evening on the tell you will be disappointed thanks so much for joining us here. what a pleasure thank you. now. let's just really allow you to appreciate what this place has to offer summer and winter destination if you want to go on holiday beautiful beaches at the same time will now need an on the sunday to see how long that was going to try to get from the stadiums the arenas the sea level here wonderful sea level attractions to the olympics floats over my left by taxi we went by train and quite so much of this. this is a resort this is like you so much it's very well noted i think we've been in the
