breaking news russia's foreign ministry hits. us circulations of a potential syrian chemical attack saying washington seems to be creating a pretext for military intervention. another scandal hit syria there's a political commentator this time caught on camera ridiculing the channels from russia coverage. but what he thinks happens with all russia. but it's. really. and also back to syria again developments there in the north of the country america's allies in the region fighting it out but we take a look at what impact u.s. support for the kurds and turkey at the same time could have in the region.
first of the twenty ninth of june one pm here in moscow hello from me you're watching r.t. international we're starting our breaking news but more detail on them for the russian foreign ministry in the last hour or so the media correspondent there has slammed washington's allegation that the syrian government is planning a chemical attack she says such claims could be a sign of an upcoming u.s. intervention now. it is even we knew about statements from washington we also knew that the u.s. officials refused to confirm the claims with any facts so we don't know what these conclusions are based on the situation looks like a massive provocation both military and informational its targets in not only syria or russia as well as good if you will or. it is likely that what we are seeing at the moment is the threshold of a new intervention you know these allegations. from the american so i came out
a couple of days ago with me now it's a sign today we've heard talk already in the foreign ministry it's a sign that they have seriously moscow's taken this the what the implications could be about what they think spawned it take us to small to what was to say the first of well what the russians are saying the gist of it is that what we're witnessing is the united states laying the groundwork for a full on intervention into syria and. intervention the entire chemical weapons craze the russian foreign ministry says you know it's a well played out scenario that has happened that it's taken place in syria previously and this time it's it's a provocation staged set up the united states tried to try to intervene in syria previously under the chemical weapons pretext in two thousand and thirteen where there was a deadly chemical attack you know hundreds of fires i remember killed the united
states and its allies britain france tried to intervene in syria and intervention in april of this year when trump launched fifty nine cruise missiles at the syrian air field it was. no investigation it was just punishment against what for for this alleged chemical attack again no due process this time around the situation is like this united states says that assad is preparing to carry out a chemical attack it would make no sense for us and he would have to be an idiot to do anything now furthermore they say that if any chemical attack happens they will automatically blame and punish our side over again no investigation no due process the danger here the russians say is that it doesn't have to be as sad now as the chemical weapons. usually i look at the u.s.
experts and they say openly that extremists could use these claims by washington provocations and shift blame to the syrian government. the two villages mentioned by the russians that they believe the americans are referring to a controlled by jihad ists. in northern syria and to be honest with you after what the united states has said about them punishing. they would have to be stupid to do nothing this is the perfect scenario for them it's a win win situation they stage a chemical attack and suddenly you have the united states coming in as their cavalry to clean up government forces even without any proof of this theory yes they would britain's fully on board with even though they're saying they haven't seen the evidence so what evidence does washington have here to say that this plan is more likely than not under way from assad well they're basing it on well that's
one of the things things that the russians have been the russians have been talking about they're saying that look again you're coming out with all this stuff and you have absolutely no evidence that you really just by the way i read her and sat in providence which is held that are controlled by al-qaeda in syria nusra front that's pretty much as you know all we have regarding the details all we know is that the preparation of the united states the chemical attack preparations that they detected similar to those that happened before the last chemical attack happened and that time they didn't say they did they didn't warn anyone that a chemical attack chemical attack was imminent and they've got a very convenient excuse here they can't tell us anything because it's all secret. evidence here with us this. preparation for these chemical weapons is that was an absolutely true. 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 all intelligence i'm not going to get into that one with you but this is a very serious and grave matter essentially everything is classified we can't tell you anything just take our word for it and the problem here is that there's not a lot of trust left to the you know the intelligence community off that will the fiasco that we've seen over the last decade or so or will continue following up more thoughts on a two professor of national security policy the massachusetts institute of technology theodore postell says that washington's rhetoric is essentially enabling this is the worry this the fact that there could be false flag attacks on syria's sorry by syria's extremists they have invited additional salmon attacks by
the rebels what they have essentially told the rebels is that any attack that you can pull off or make people believe happened will be blamed on the syrian government and the russians the rebels are losing the war and the best thing they can do if they can succeed it is to convince the americans to attack the syrian government military so they're creating an incentive for a false flag attack. another undercover video has been released revealing attitudes by c.n.n. towards russia related stories this time one of the american news channels political commentators seems to struggle all off. what do you think's going to happen this week with the whole russia. russia thing to. really. move what she us today this is no than the second video in his many days for investigative journalism group project veritas with details about this latest thing is. yet
another leak related to c.n.n. from james o'keefe and project vera toph's that was van jones who briefly served in the obama administration and is now a commentator for c.n.n. in the clip he says that the russia thing is a nothing burger now it's important to be clear here we don't exactly know what he's referring to about the russia thing could be the russian investigation could be the allegations about trump the context of the clip is not exactly clear this leak comes on just in the aftermath of another recent leak from project veritas and jon bon a field an important producer for c.n.n. says the russia story is polite terms nonsense that was just recently released as well now we here at r t reached out to c.n.n. to ask for their comment and they have not replied and it's important to know that these videos that are coming out are not without controversy james o'keefe is personally facing a million dollar lawsuit at the hands of
a contractor he interviewed after he interviewed them posing as someone else and this was a contractor allegedly working with the democratic party so there's a lot of questions that still remain we also have behind the video what the russian thinks he refers to. we put the entire video out there i mean people can judge for themselves sometimes yeah earthling from the conversation but that's certainly my interpretation and i think that's the way the mainstream media is reading it the way the drug or as the headline strikes again in the president of the united states just to a verb radio urson the instagram if you're not so obvious it may well seem c.n.n. has been struggling to get a grip on its russia coverage of late was stuff quick to publish without solid evidence case same point just a few days ago three journalist quit to c.n.n. retracted the story of an alleged senate investigation into links between a russian investment fund and a confidant of donald trump then back in january c.n.n.
broke a story claiming russia had compromising personal information about president trump based on a dossier written by a former british spy it was later admitted that the dossier was flawed and filled with unverified allegations the group behind the latest on the cup of video says c.n.n. is not the only outlet landing in hot water. not just c.n.n. i want to make that clear if you're going to mainstream media in america in and you are telling why you are defending people you're keeping stories you're keeping them in public for not going through you're on our list and we may be in your board room right now we are watching you and your c.e.o. and one of those organizations probably would be sleeping well at night because it might be on the planet mars meantime russian media has been singled out during a senate hearing devoted to alleged russian meddling in the u.s. presidential election. of course. sputnik made their effort to have a
a an effect on the election so just the fact that maybe our t. in the. had a mirrored of that was different in britain then maybe the mainstream press that would be a sign of russia trying to influence the outcome would it not. watching across the airing of these elections have skewed them next in washington. nothing burger has becoming a very foreign term in the political lexicon in united states and another one has been served on the senate floor today despite all the scary sounding things like rush and maddening in the elections worldwide and this whole two and a half hour session was dedicated to that talking not only about their past election where rush allegedly meddled but even the future ones while russia will definitely meddle and some of the warning of course on the floor was very tough russia's blatant interference in the united states twenty sixteen presidential elections was unprecedented in both scale and scope and many have said this is
actually the crime of the century. if you think about it it is russia has interfered or an attempt to interfere in elections from france to the netherlands from the balkans to the baltics russian interference in european political space is strategic you have any doubt that russian interference is driven by putin himself no doubt about it and mr. the same answer no doubt. no doubt. so somehow without any shred of evidence they have linked the soul to putin himself nonetheless the list of countries as you've heard is very rare very wide those countries allegedly affected by the so-called russian meddling hacking and all those things in those countries obviously included france and france was actually voiced on the senate floor today the only problem is that as we know the head of the french intelligence recently said that russians apparently had nothing to do
with a parent hacking off across campaign. is not possible to. be a criminal group it really can be any woman like it's still the simplicity of the taking a good part just a simple if you created it person can be in any country with any kind of motivation so you know generally for us covering the story for a long time this is just another day in the office reverting back to accusations without presenting any proof and it seems like when anything goes wrong anyway it's russia's fault or russia splay book to describe democracies across the world and this was just another day on the sounded like this with no actual substance produced. the american private investor nor the chinese or tells of his thoughts on the allegations against russia but you have here sadly is clear evidence of just how dysfunctional the american legislative branch of government is now of course to arrange these type of hearings they are done in advance this is long been schedule i doubt they planned to have these hearings just following what happened recently
on c.n.n. you know we've had multiple different people even james komi himself under oath multiple times has said that the no foreign power successfully meddled and effect of the election results in two thousand and sixteen and the general reaction that's coming out inside america is enough already with this russian which at which now admittedly is a which are. in a few months sweden is set to conduct its biggest military exercise in twenty years it coincides too with russia holding large scale drills as well but there's a third of them in the pipeline on a very different mission they described as the first peacekeeping war games thirty swedish and russian activists take part in a two day exercise called alan seventy with the goal of the escalating in a hypothetical conflict one of the organizers told us that someone's going to reach out with a message of peace. they are of course not physical that you would have if you
were exercising the menier of exercises to be prepared if the escalation continues but we have bigger and bigger military exercises on the russian side begin to begin military exercises on this we decide. we are getting closer to nico on the swedish side and we have the capability of the swedish and russian politicians to to make meets ends meet to somehow among themselves make agreements then we have to have some kind of civil society that does the job for them so we are preparing for this we want to think it was common sense clover in neighboring finland the country's former ambassador to russia suspects in fact that the peace groups event is a moscow ploy to sway public opinion here's what the organizer thinks of that he wants to claim that we are something that we are not because he wants us he wants to show that we are agents of a foreign power like as soon as you stand up for peace people within your own
country will say that you're a traitor. that you somehow work for the other side. of the a bit different going against the grain in the us one right when artists now is put his creativity behind the president he says he's determined to get his message across that trump and the republicans are as punk rock as it gets. for right wing guerrilla artist as far as i'm concerned there is far as i know of the only person that does it on the other side you've got shepard fairey bag she robbie carlisle pretty much the other one on my side that does this twenty four seven. so i fit it trumps a poorer ever since i've seen him kicked media in the teeth but when you see hollywood their heads are exploding i just fell in love with the guy but i think
he's this punk rock it's punk rock it's ever been. my goal or what i do it is to let young kids understand that there's another side out there no political side out. and coming up paradox international syrian military positions of again come under israeli attack we look at the ramifications of that. that's. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and should. somehow want.
to be like to be close that's what before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters in the. first six weeks. i think david cameron was so convinced that he would whip. that we're going to keep the british people would forget. that you folks are justified in taking a gamble and i think that was an irresponsible gun well i think he was playing russian roulette with british future because it's in europe it's in a radical change it's not like an old reelection with five yes you could vote for.
israel has launched a missile strike against a syrian government military position there are no reports of injuries but the attack did come they say after a stray syrian mortar shell landed in the north of the disputed golan heights which is occupied by israel israeli military later confirmed it's retaliation. wants to the project launched earlier from syria towards israel i.d.f. targeted the syrian military position that fired the mortar there has been an increase in border fire exchanged between israel and syria recently the really prime minister says his country quote will not tolerate errant shooting and will respond to war firing middle east based journalist martin j. told us the golan heights situation demonstrates that the syrian conflict is still evolving tensions beginning to mount and what's happening in that particular part of southern syria right on the border with israel is that is that the israeli prime
minister is getting very nervous about something which wasn't supposed to happen which is that these sorts skirmishes were not supposed to go as far down as the golan heights go hi it's a strategic strategically important in the war that's going on now or that the war is not reported them so much by international media which is that the war between assad regime such partners and the west so it's a geopolitical war which is which is of over and that's why there's all this tension in that particular area is so many hot spots and layers to it was serious southern border faces strikes from israel its northern borders being torn by fighting as well take he's launched an artillery barrage against the kurdish y p g militia of one of the many syrian hotspots the town of afrin. it can all seem such a quagmire let's get
a focus on where africa is bring it out of the map you can see it there now that's where the fighting between kurdish forces is concentrated you see the chioma side there most of the battle is on a plane but the white p.j. something strongly disputed by turkey maine the other side of this the big twist the u.s. considers both sides as allies in the fight against islamic state adding to the complication hold his looks at how the u.s. support for the rivals my actually been lead to more instability in the region. it's turkey versus the kurds both of them u.s. allies and it's left washington walking a delicate tightrope between its two friends which happen to be you shall have sworn enemies. we should be using we should be looming that we do not need terrorist organizations like the p y d n y p g and the rock operation we could have a lot of great success over the next coming years
a difficult balancing act to say the least but lately the scale seem to have tipped to favor the kurdish side after all kurdish groups have been washington's weapon of choice in the fight against islamic state the us government to supply them with arms and even sent special forces to support them we have already started to provide the weapons and equipment in the area nation to or syrian democratic forces both the syrian arizona syrian kurds so what happens to the kurds when i sold on the brink of defeat is taken out of the equation will the us remain such a faithful friend probably not it turns out the weapons washington has given to its kurdish allies were actually just loaned out temporarily when the fighting is done the guns will have to be returned at least that's what was promised to turkey what we gave them were weapons for urban fighting basically and yes we will recover the when it's no longer needed by them now syrian kurds might dream of autonomy in their country but if they think they'll be granted this reward for being the most
effective and full force on the ground they just need to look at the iraqi kurds across the border this is how the us responded to very calls for independence we support a unified stable democratic and a federal iraq we understand and appreciate the legitimate aspirations of the people of iraqi kurdistan even leaderless is an internal wracking matter but first and foremost we have to defeat isis if the kurds in syria were hoping to at least keep the territories they've liberated from islamics. that's also not likely to happen judging by previous u.s. the mines that those areas be returned to locals as soon as the fight is over we do have a commitment as we've spoken to before from kurdish leadership that those forces who stabilize the area will mirror the local population they will turn over areas to local population as long as the specter of i saw haunt syria kurdish fighters will spearhead the front line but six months down the road and it's anyone's guess
. the united states worldwide energy market share will be on president trumps mind of a speech later thursday but with global oil markets already swamped with supplies and rock bottom prices there could be dangers to america's increasingly aggressive export tactics. america has city is still a big piece of the global energy. push the president trumps administration is cooling energy dominance. present trump wants america to achieve energy dominance by utilizing our abundant resources. for good both here and abroad but there's a catch the increase in global energy consumption stands at one percent currently most twice lower than the ten year average the u.s. is looking to enter a highly competitive and oversupply it market washington will need to shake up the existing energy superpower quite an ambitious plan and geographically speaking the u.s.
is simply too far away from the major energy market which will make transportation costly so what about the old mantra of energy independence as washington steps up it's going to be seems that all good been abandoned energy dominance perhaps the group believes in. i think the strategy of the u.s. is to continue to increase crude oil production refine it through increased capacity at our facility as along the gulf coast at the same time increasing our use and production of renewable fuels solar and wind so that we can accommodate the increasing demand throughout the world a lot of the u.s. petroleum products that we're exploiting are going not only to central and south america but as well as africa and europe and that forces competition between the u.s. and other countries such as russia or the arabian gulf countries. chillies
which the fall of football's confederations cup after beating portugal that was bravo for claudio bravo who saved three penalties to get chile to the final after three nil penalty shoot out in the russian city because they're not going to face the winner of the germany mexico match we spoke to players and officials about the game. it a bit although people sort of like what i respect both teams they played well best wishes to both of them and i hope the match will be as interesting as this match and would be if the semifinal. you don't win but difficult without it was a great match for every team but we tried we worked we fought it didn't get a gold you reach a penalty had great luck at all the ball for the government physically we like the portuguese to our party it's a tough match we tried our best but i think we played using our souls. that will really counts and find out for you don't forget you can follow our continued coverage of football here online as well next on next program after the break yet find out how well almost every part of people's lives in the u.k.
but politicians do such a thing. they put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. most somewhat want to be us. that's why the press was like that before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters in the. sky just by the hassle survival. when customers go by. now well reduce and lower. that's undercutting but what's good for market is not good for the global economy. if you take an economics course you're
taught that markets are based on informed consumers making rational judgments suppose you turn on the television set take a look at the. moment are they trying to create informed consumers making rational choices country or they're trying to create an uninformed consumers who will act irrationally in the so huge industry one of the biggest industries in the country. says. look i'm. healthy and that's what i'm going to say pleasantly plump.
