their thanks joining us this day in moscow this so wednesday the twenty eighth of june my name's kevin away and you're watching r.t. international and its football first england's world cup dating team has been implicated now in a corruption scandal over its failed push to host the twenty eight and told them of a fee for report also names former u.k. prime minister david cameron and prince william who are apparently at a meeting where vote swapping was discussed let's go to london try to get some more on this as of course it potentially big story pretty big names being implicated by faith here. oh yeah kevin basically this report discusses an incident where prince william and david cameron were apparently present present in a hotel during a meeting where the possibility of woods' vote swapping was discussed the report says that david cameron had suggested swapping votes with south korean officials as
they were both bidding for the world cups of twenty thousand and twenty twenty two now apparently according to this report some promises were made but were not in fact carried out because both ended up losing out certainly this report highlights a variety of different dramatic twists and discussions in attempt to court each other leading up to the voting in particular we have seen in this report that some fee for executives had made suggestions that a good idea would be meeting the queen there was discussion of a potential on or a night strip. talk of getting a job for a friend of a son a son of a friend of one of the fee for executives as well as naming. requesting a home town twinned city with an english village and other sorts of discussions so
really this report is a kind of gift that keeps on giving in terms of the different considerations taking place ahead of the vote with countries making certain attempts to win each other over but certainly england did not succeed in this as we know that bit ended up going to russia and here the big revelation if you will because this was certainly a report that was being watched out for to see whether or not more terrible light would be shed on russia which turned out to be not the case both russia could be far more centrally cleared in this report with their winning bids of the world cup of twenty thousand and twenty two and twenty two respectively and what we do know of course this is a crucial report because it's all. for four hundred pages it's a two year investigation into potential allegations of corruption surrounding the bid that was very highly anticipated the german newspaper the build was saying they're going to publish leaked. the full report that they got their hands on
certainly they did not end up doing that with the for themselves releasing this document and it's been quite a surprise to say the least that england has had to blushed and really be embarrassed when it comes to these sorts of negotiations well the last two from london pre-show that no international sports attorney david larkin spoke has but it is well he believes the whole process of choosing world cup hosts was floored the allegations weighed out the or suggested this isn't the only time this happened it suggests that this is one of the many. questionable behaviors that occurred in the midst of the big practices for not only twenty two but twenty points to a so it's just yet more allegations that this process was flawed that that was out of control and as an organization that should not be allowed to conduct these affairs in secret i think this really is a very inconvenient report that details some a bit shady behavior. that occurred around the process that schieffer tolerate.
meddling is in russia's d.n.a. says the former direct to of u.s. national intelligence james clapper and he goes on to say therefore that proves that moscow was still making attempts to influence american politics he was appearing in a new documentary that aired by america's c.n.n. news channel in primetime just but seven hours ago. is there any reason to believe that russia is not right now today continuing to attempt to or to infiltrate u.s. political organizations individuals. who would think it's in their d.n.a. . or are in the soviet era or know. me a bit early here in the studio to explain whether there was actually a smoking gun revealed in this. but so much anticipation over this latest special report from c.n.n. it was billed as the first comprehensive telling of on television of russia's
attack on the two thousand and sixteen presidential race and also with jarring lessons for the american leaders and the public about more attacks still to come now who wouldn't want to watch this it seems like stephen was going to lift the lid on all of these unverified source is and then substantiated claims it's used in the past to rush or bash with stories almost on a daily basis but i'm afraid that's going to be a lot of disappointed viewers after this report because it's all the same old chuen is just repackaged in a new way a lot of music a lot of close up shots on president putin looking moody and meaner take a look for yourself some of his of. his prime target is the u.s. . story in cyber speech that would lead to doorstep as all very familiar isn't it we saw a very similar documentary released by c.n.n. before called putin the most powerful man in the world although there are plenty of nicely edited sound bites in this latest special report although i have to say
probably an overindulgence on the shorts of those soldiers marching through moscow . ideas of north korea but we both live in moscow we know this is not something that we see on a daily basis as a whole and i'm afraid the closest we come to seeing any solid evidence that russia was behind the attacks is this kind of evidence some of it surprisingly simple such as time stamps showing that the hackers were starting and finishing their work duties on moscow time we live in hope it's a view is watching this will realize that most go shares a time zone with many other cities around the world and also do work nine to five jobs are known just one day before the airing of this special report three c.n.n. staff members resigned over and substantiated russia related story which c.n.n. poll just a few days earlier. and but they just snowballed when it went from bad to worse off to that a producer for c.n.n. was saying that the networks russia cuffe which was more about ratings than being
based on any solid facts with more details on the latest project veritas leak. well a video has surfaced of a c.n.n. producer saying that most of their russia trump coverage is well and more polite terms nonsense the point c.n.n. constantly. this is ratings this ratings raise or they were right but honestly. it's just like. it's mostly the right no we don't know. john. proof and it's not just one guy from c.n.n. who's saying that there's not much to this story of trump russia collusion there is no evidence that there was collusion but they didn't find any evidence of collusion no evidence of collusion or there is no evidence of collusion between the russians and the trump campaign but at this point what's not proven is the idea of collusion that's correct still no evidence but the media keeps pushing the story project
veritas that leaked the recent video says that c.n.n. has mentioned trump in russia roughly sixteen thousand times you would think people might get bored with the subject by now are you tired of hearing about trump and russia yes actually yes that's all i hear about it it's just getting a little tiring we're all exhausted however however it has to be it has to be that the truth has to come out and the truth is that there was interference in the american electorate system but by putin the sentiment you feel like this is what the american people want to see on t.v. is they want to hear about trump allegedly working with russia. not mean not only among friends i think they would but that's something you know if there is something secret about something people want to know even more so if you just bring it out. out in the open if there is something you'll come out if it's not then it's just go away and you feel like the media should be reporting on this more or less less and like to hear where these sources are coming from or who's saying it spares
i know it could be my next door neighbor they don't have proof they need to drop it now the c.n.n. producer allegedly said that they keep pushing the story because of the ratings however a lot of the americans we spoke to said they'd rather watch something else cable mop and aren't seeing washington d.c. or back to the c.n.n. video released by project veritas the network issued a statement saying they stand by their producer in the world com diversity of opinion was a general statement was not she replied to when we reached out to them but anyway the white house spokes person too was asked about it at a news conference and said it could further undermine trust in the media i think if it is accurate i think it's a disgrace to all of media to all of journalism i think we have gone to a place where. if the media can't be trusted to report the news then it's a dangerous place for america the group which released the video is called project
veritas it's works proved highly controversial in the past it's been accused of violating wiretapping laws and is facing a million dollar lawsuit two of three released hidden camera conversations with democratic party workers discussing voter fraud or the group's also been accused of misleading the public with flawed editing of its videos project dismisses the lawsuit as intimidation would challenge the group's communications director knew about the controversial tactics this is what he had to say. we weren't specifically looking for this angle but we mean this is the general area we were going we didn't know exactly what would catch we caught it the only way to get to the truth sometimes is with undercover video which has a very rich and long and proud tradition undercover investigations of obtaining the truth when other mechanisms fail people are not going to sit up there and brag on the podium that we're corrupt i'm not expecting a backlash from this particular video because we've followed the law we've followed
what the letter and the intent of the law was how we obtained today to go obviously we're not going to tell you what's coming up or who it is that targets are but we have many targets in the mainstream media that we are actively working on and we'll have more on c.n.n. coming sometime very soon. we'll continue to follow that story on this one too officials in the u.s. administration under pressure to reveal evidence that led them to claim that the syrian military is preparing a chemical weapons attack the state department spokesperson refused to be drawn when she was quizzed about the allegations by reporters. as evidence to share with us about this potential preparation for these chemical weapons because that wasn't actually laid out right and nor would that be laid out because that would be considered an intelligence matter when you guys believe that it's in your interests you do put out what you say it's evidence of truthful things that involve intelligence i'm not going to get into that one with you but this is a very serious and grave matter any attacks on the syrian people you know would be
blamed you know on the seat in the russians why not find out who this is obviously a complex war with the right number of actors yeah you're right leading isis. it seems like it rather a nuanced comment of what wouldn't you find out who exactly you know was responsible. well proof or not france and the u.k. have pledged to support an american attack on syrian government forces despite the lack of evidence next artie's more goes the of looks at why washington seems to be putting punishment before due process but shah al assad has one really bad habit and that habit is and you need does this when he's winning he ruined everything by doing something really stupid for no reason at all. like launching a chemical attack on and then consequential village in the middle of nowhere we're
going by washington's narrative here by the way take acids army now crushing slavek state liberating vast swaths of syria and out of the blue comes this the united states has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the saddam regime as sad knows the probable cause and sequences of a chemical attack it's the only thing really right now that could ruin him by giving his enemies the opportunity of the pretext to attack him why would he do it because he's evil the murderous syrian dictator bashar assad has been a brutal dictator bashar al assad's a murderous regime in syria assad is the worst kind of brutal war criminal a classic super villain boof stupid and evil beyond any logic the kind
of villain batman would go after and america is bad man. if mr assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons he and his military will pay a heavy price britain is already on board if asaad does something really dumb for new reason again the u.k. will join the us in punishing him we think it's absolutely right if we can to prevent the use of chemical weapons and we will fully support any u.s. action if you've been following events in syria recently you know they aren't kidding the united states has attacked assad five times in what they say is self-defense but when they see that they don't actually mean it u.s. troops would never threatened know they were defending that isis allies who the syrian army says were never threatened i that the u.s.
on that allies to the teeth. we have already started to provide the weapons and equipment in the area nation that we said that we would and will continue to provide those two or syrian democratic forces both the syrian arabs in syria kurds . the kurds of course are being used by the americans to further american foreign policy and i think it's an awful shame that the kurds who fall into that strategy is to attack other forces which are moral to the united states and which are also loyal to were influenced by saudi arabia in the gulf states and funded by them in order to maintain an ability to undermine militarily the government of the problem is justifying a prolonged conflict isn't easy western voters don't want another gun who
bombing campaign they learned their lesson after the first few times the international community sick of reckless interventions the unique thing left is to wait for asaad to give them a cause and since he's a comic book supervillain. it's just a part of the script. we'll get to that we spoke to former safin of gerald who says there's no room for speculation when it comes to another potential u.s. strike on syrian government forces particularly in this case you would be i would think compelled to provide evidence because the only basis you have for this is allegations about a plan apparently and also you're basing those allegations on a claim which is quite speculative that there's considerable debate as to whether
the government was indeed involved and indeed the so-called rebels had much more motivation and control the area where these attacks took place just shocking to to have this presented in a way that the u.s. government which is in syria illegally is threatening the legal syrian government and legal syrian government allies iran and russia coming up here who can stay with us for that at least ten countries that hit by a massive cyber attack to talk to an expert from his post in labs about it.
a massive global cyber attack on tuesday the hot struck at least ten countries from india to the united states thousands of companies and government agencies have been caught in the run somewhere including major energy shipping and banking firms reports first emerged in ukraine and russia they have been worst hit there was a worry that when people switched on the computers in america today it would get worse as well the girl friend says santiago has more. industry giants airports and governments no one was apparently safe in the latest mass cyber attack the plague started in russia and ukraine and spread globally in a matter of hours moscow based oil giant ross nafta a major advertising firm in the u.k. logistics behemoth moller myers can then mark and prominent companies in spain france and the united states all have fallen under attack by the malware the way it works is it includes everything you have on the computer and then locks it asking
for a ransom in the amount of three hundred to five hundred dollars and to infiltrate the system it uses some well known technology allegedly one from the arsenal of the n.s.a. it appeared a little over a month ago when more than a hundred countries came under attack by the ransomware dubbed want to cry major hospitals across the u.s. and the you couldn't use their computers businesses went down causing havoc it took around twenty four hours to contain that attack this time the fallout seems to be more modest victims are reporting that little damage has been done so far in the case of russia's rosneft for example oil production wasn't even affected still this virus has penetrated servers worldwide again and you would think the hackers won't get lucky a third time we don't francis and thiago r.t. . so what's this all about will choose the cyber attacks believed to be powered by hacking tools developed by america's national security agency which were dumped online in april the national security agency has not acknowledged its tools were
used in the want to cry or other attacks but on twitter whistleblower edward snowden condemned the attack where the n.s.a. will accept responsibility for the damage that was exposed a bit more bitches love he's the head of the mt malware spur ski lab sir thanks you're tired today gosh i bet you're busy. it's been reported that there's now some a certain kind of antidote vaccine for this mel where do you know about that or nor. yeah i know about this vaccine but. honestly it's not a vaccine itself so it's possible to make some changes to the operating system in order to prevent infection while there is no way to do it completely automatic so i wouldn't call it completely wrecks in is that they're not sure i want to cry kill three church is the danger from last night's attack over now because what time is
it's up past five in the morning in new york city for instance people will be going to work in a few hours turning on their computers are they safe or not this morning. i can confirm then not say because currently we see that this thread spreads globally it can heat or companies of all divide so there is no safe place in the world is the danger over no is the attack at the moment it's under way still or has it stopped. currently we see significant decrease in number of. companies affected by this attack so i can't predict it what will happen in the future but currently we see that. significant decline in number of companies now we all witnessed huge
wanna cry attack recently a number of patches were put out is there anything more the companies that individuals can do to protect their data or is this going to be like an ongoing war that sever morphing now. so. that common rules are also relevant right now so the. common piece of advice for all in home use the recess to install security software install windows updates in time and don't open in mail attachments and don't click on suspicious here else so is it only for window uses or could there are no. users be affected as well. now at the
moment we have seen attacks on li against bindles users. haven't seen any attacks against my peers or so linus both the major ransomware attacks have been traced back to hacking tools apparently developed by america's national security agency that were leaked online in april how much responsibility should the n.s.a. take here if you've got any thoughts about that. so first of all so there is no confirmation of that of this tool savor developed by and i say so the only information is that this those were disclosed by shadow brokers group which is still not clear or they and. it's a sign that. microsoft and user should. more care about
windows updates to keep systems operating system updated. but if this kind of. malware is constantly evolving it's going to be like a cat and mouse game all the time trying to catch up this is different from the malware before isn't it it's evolved is it more dangerous. here i agree is that it's constantly evolving and it's worth of the. exposed by shadow brokers help criminals to develop more effective. and export or somewhere also use attacks tools from a broker asli. we should be in a pro so it definitely helped them better guys to do their work better why have to be if this thing comes up on your screen in hours for three hundred
dollars worth of big coins the problem is if you give into a bully they'll only burns but if you pay this money it'll just spur the criminals on what is your advice do you have any advice to anyone. that faces this. so the first piece of advice is not to pay a ransom because if you pay around some of it much of it's criminals to develop more and more sophisticated malware so now it's better to install security software updates. instead set up backups in order to ensure that. even if the machine is infected so. it will be possible to recover the data. and and four years of school already been infected things are better to wait for decryption thaw. if it gets possible because if you do think
so chance first real below or for occurring data vicious now we go leave it there will ever big coffee and get on with your very busy day which is love jeff ski kept person head of the malware thanks very much for your time today we know you're a busy man. thank you for your time too i can tell you what's coming up next after the break crosstalk papers a lot of talking today about whether the media campaign to take down trump is doing more damage to the democrats and news outlets themselves as a thought. about your sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself in taking your last bang turn. your attitude up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry you like so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i
never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each bank. but then my feeling started to change you talked about more like it was again still some more fun to view those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it's one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with this one. speech because there were no other takers. claimed that mainstream media has met its maker . here's what people have been saying about rejected in the disastrous pull on ourselves the only show i go out of my way to launch it would.
