anger. is on the rise. of. the u.s. and russia brokered cease fire comes into force in southwest syria people there are enjoying their first peaceful day after six years of fighting. the week's top stories have a come folds in. the g twenty rights apply to the german city leaving hundreds of police and protesters injured. i think c.n.n. is accused of blackmailing the creator of the present trump wrestling clip
threatening to reveal his identity if he does something similar again. they're welcome the latest developments and a look back at the last seven days to you watching the weekly here on r.t. international now just a few hours ago a cease fire brokered by the u.s. and russia came into force in southwest syria after six years of relentless fighting people across three provinces have finally enjoyed a relatively peaceful. you know. i'm not a newbie to deliberately. watch t.v. . well you have to work with the whole world because of all the.
other syrian ceasefire came as an unexpected breakthrough following a meeting between president putin and donald trump on the sidelines of the g. twenty summit in hamburg. has more details. following the first face to face meeting between president trump president putin the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov has announced that the u.s. and russia has agreed on a new cease fire in the south western of syria that would take into effect at noon damascus time on july ninth take a listen to the details of this new cease fire zone to discover russia the u.s. and jordan reach a cease fire agreement for syria the cease fire will come into effect in three areas there. and it will come into force on the ninth of july the u.s. and russia have committed to monitoring the cease fire and ensuring humanitarian access to the areas initially security of these areas will be ensured by russian military police and close cooperation with the u.s.
and jordan now these three southern provinces that lavrov mentioned also share a border with jordan which is also part of this new agreement however another country that these three southern provinces which i believe can show you on a map on the screen now also share a border with israel and this area includes that this golan heights of this area between syria and israel and according to the u.n. is a syrian territory occupied by israel since the sixty's and over the recent weeks there's been a surge of quasi border exchanges of fire and this new the escalation zone can potentially afford such incidents in the future u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson he said this new agreement shows his first indication that the u.s. and russia can work together and cooperate with each other in syria the russian president vladimir putin he also expressed an optimistic tone over this take a listen. regarding whether the u.s. position on syria has changed i think it's become more pragmatic in general it doesn't seem to change but there is now an understanding that we can achieve a lot the united effort now bear in mind that this is no doubt
a breakthrough in terms of u.s. russia relations showing that the two countries can work with each other in syria however it be too optimistic to see this as a breakthrough of the entire syrian conflict as a whole as you know prior to this numerous the escalation zones happened set up and countless sea. so far happening greed on and both sides have accused each other of violating them and so stairs there's still a lot of answered questions regarding the syrian conflict and where the most crucial one being the political future of the assad government where we asked him our came an expert in international relations about the difficulties that lie ahead for the syrian peace process. this is still a first step should be tested it's a long way ahead. so i believe that we wouldn't be able to reach a final solution for the syrian crisis before years from now maybe one or two years at least because there are a lot of obstacles specially from the american side there are a lot of opposition to the american president going on from the day he was able to
reach this agreement with them and put them there where the news leaked to the media in the united states of meetings between his. son in law of donald trump and some of his aides with russian diplomats and this is a quote from terms of policy. well the first meeting between the russian and american presidents was held behind closed doors at the g. twenty summit in hamburg this week much of what was discussed was not made public although to me putin did share his personal impressions of the u.s. leader afterwards. trump and i have established a relationship it may sound strange but trump in real life is completely different to plenty on t.v. he's very businesslike and easy to talk with i think if we continue to work
together in the way we did yesterday we will be able to restore relations between the u.s. and russia and bring cooperation between our countries to a new level however it wasn't only putin and trump throwing attention to the g twenty summits or lots of new faces as well as our friends getting together. was. what. i. was.
i. i. i i i. i. well thousands of leftwing militants from across europe converged on the city leaving a trail of destruction cars and piles of rubbish were torched and also shops were vandalized and looted t. on the right is also clashed with police in fact over two hundred officers were reportedly injured during that after the first wave of rights too many business owners boarded up their windows to protect their premises some said parts of the
city looked like a war zone pressure all over follow the trouble. tensions have boiled over between demonstrators and the police. i can see the main body of the crowd and i disavow the and as they say i'm lacing every bomb seriously so you can have that really hurt you a kosovan is what can you please describe for me what happened where you were well as far as i could tell they were attacking the demonstration with no reason. she's part of a. civil war the violence was awful and i also to understand the message they want to send me his violence is simply tragic. that is a call some form sportscar belief that's being taught shia roaming moments of small
bits of violence and the police come in to try and put it out war to come and we used pepper spray was used. to. hear the crowd chanting away that on sci fi she's the build of on sci fi chants going on all under the watchful eye if we move the camera over here over the watchful eye of a lot of police officers i do. not wish to keep a bit vigilant here because we are seeing already what's the us flower being thrown at the police just as you can see there we're actually right between the police and the demonstrators right now so we're going to try and get out of the way just well moment while i'm talking to you not the best place to be if. he has a huge call the police officers that's marching through the city then leading the demonstrates is. i think.
it's continued on days over the last twenty four hours now as you can see just behind me does actually. more water cannon arriving at the intersection where i am . they will say a quiet tense scene here just a long time ago whereby a number of bottles were being thrown the police responded with water cannon we see . there's certainly a very large police presence a helicopter flying overhead many other emergency vehicles around but there's also an awful lot of demonstrators here. this is the scene in hamburg as you can see a heavy police presence there just marching past me the older came through from police that this base in the section here this junction had to be cleared there is a section of demonstrators just over there you may be able to see water kalin being used every time they try and come close to this intersection they get sprayed back
. you can see just over here the advertising hoardings have been vandalized there behind me is a bank that was all it was locked up but it's now also been all smashed up over my right shoulder there i spoke to some of the shop owners that have based here about their plans were some were saying they were going to pull them up some saying they were going to wait it out and stay inside the store twenty four hours a day some owners are covering windows so they don't get broken a lot of places are closed so we couldn't work productively because a total collapse of transportation was in my opinion you can't organize the g. twenty two in a left wing liberal area especially in hamburg which is famous for its demonstrators it is one of the major centers full counter-culture in germany one of the major centers indeed for the fall left here just over my left shoulder is
a place called they are well to floor it's a major hub full of left wing groups here and it was from there that a lot. the organizing of these demonstrations originated from of course this area ending up being where a lot of the violence took place. but he bronson from the alternative to jamie party tell us that given the strength of radical left wing sentiment in the city violence was always very much a possibility. how big is well known for its left wing. sometimes extremist views so this shouldn't have been a surprise for anybody really well i believe that two groups of people who actually traveled to how to take part in this one group is very peaceful they want to stage their protest they perfectly in their right every german has the right to assemble
freely without weapons it's part of the constitutional law the second group. they didn't want to have any peaceful demonstrations they were set for trouble you have these i call them demolition tourists they travel from all over europe and all all of the germany to take part in a protest that is bound to be violent that is bound to destroy shops looting of supermarkets but they had no interest whatsoever in a peaceful protest and sadly this small but very violent group is now attracting all the attention and of course the peaceful protesters are upset because this is not how you should stage your prostate your protest should always always be peaceful to be heard. now the battle for the iraqi city of mosul is finally drawing to a close we'll have a look at that in detail after the break. as
far as the wealthy areas of the italy going bust and we should save them because they're going bust well again the central bank the e.c.b. a jag they have already printed fifteen sixteen trillion dollars to bail out their friends their oligarch friends during since two thousand and eight and they've said they've signal to the marketplace that we've got another fifteen sixteen seventeen trillion dollars to print to make as many errors as you want keep making bad loans keep borrowing money at zero percent interest rate to buy assets of precious. paintings and shadows it doesn't make any difference. in case you're new to the game this is how it works not the economy is built around corporations corporations run washington washington controls the media the media the. voters elected the businessman to run this country business
equals power you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. i'm back you watching r.t. now the iraqi prime minister's travel to the city of mosul a former islamic state stronghold declared victory over the terror group only a small pocket of militants now remains and they are expected to be defeated soon the development has been widely celebrated in the media but it is not often on the show that we can break good news about iraq but today is one of those days the country's prime minister arrived in mosul today to declare a great victory as he joined his troops to celebrate in the city they've lost many comrades along the road but today the iraqi security forces were firing their weapons in celebration claiming victory over their own. well the iraqi military
with the support of the u.s. launched its campaign to liberate the city from ice last october join the operation human rights groups raised serious concerns there about the civilian casualties being caused by coalition forces over the past nine months over eight hundred fifty thousand people have been forced to flee the area thousands of civilians have also been killed the battle took particularly severe tell on the city's children four year old howrah was one of those who was lucky to survive. it's good to talk to them when you get. the name out of london to turn up to what i did. just what an awesome trip i was opening made that initial thought on foot.
and does that. fit the i'm fighting the feel it's still a child the floodlight see above got down on them on monday gun to get on beyond going to how the pulse of most of that a bit cool will get you on your cell phone minutes from john the sun humbucker it's hard. to set up a fund. but i need it within me on unity government to come to god. that i am only i'm a democrat to have to this how do you name me a million come with me should be a new. lease on the didn't come here and. so the had other traditional. nonnegotiable i just amount.
to one of the little home been money going to come. and look i'm going to be a nice to those are. the challenge. human rights watch tell us more about the civilian price of the liberation. operation to retake mosul particularly believe the west of the city and that's been raging very wary has come at an incredibly high cost we've seen much of the west of the city completely destroyed by ground fire and by airstrikes and we've seen a mass spike in civilian casualties thousands of civilians being wounded and being killed in the fighting so so that the city has really paid a price for this operation that we were calling particularly on the u.s.
led coalition to take more care in the way that it is conducting its bombing campaign and securely the types and sizes of bombs that it's choosing to drop because of these large balls that are being dropped more and more frequently we've seen a massive increase in civilian casualties on the ground unfortunately the general feeling among the coalition and the iraqi government is that because the momentum to finish the operation has been on their side they've wanted to use all means to get it done as quickly as possible and as a result we haven't seen them willing to for example take certain types of weapons completely off the table so as to better protect civilian concerns or that with these civilian casualties we don't see accountability we don't see american commanders taking responsibility and we don't see compensation for the victims. c.n.n. found it so from the center of an internet this week tracked down the creative clip
featuring don't trump wrestling the channels logo the video was tweeted by the president a few days earlier leading c.n.n. to say to encourage violence against reporters however the channel found itself in hot water when it did decide to find the man behind the mean. takes up the story. so this guy makes a humorous little video and then it blows up someone edited it donald trump found it and posted it on his twitter feed ah it got millions of views hundreds of thousands of likes and many people had to love c.n.n. did not like being laughed at not one bit they launched a manhunt for the original creator of the video what they did is dog saying it is digging up private information on someone or with something and then publishing it can be used for law enforcement for business extortion coercion harassment
online shaming and vigilante justice the reaction has been furious even julian songes waited on the matter saying that potentially what c.n.n. did may be a crime a multi-billion dollar t.v. network blackmailing a private citizen into not making funny videos about it is not journalism c.n.n. and c.n.n. succeeded they found the original creator and he has since apologized and promised never to make another video critical of c.n.n. channel says when they finally talk to him he sounded nervous as well he might c.n.n. is threatening to publish his identity for all the loonies in the world to know if he ever stops being sorry it's right there on their website c.n.n. reserves the right to publish his identity if he stops being sorry if anything
changes isn't that the definition of blackmail. well in the backlash that followed the c.n.n. journalist who wrote about the identity of the man behind the clip hit back he tweeted this response to the claims of blackmail saying their line was misinterpreted and that they simply meant c.n.n. made no agreement about handling the man's identity still the damage was done and the internet responded with more means bashing c.n.n. .
we spoke exclusively to a moderator for the reddit website from way the clip originated he asked us to conceal his identity. just say you're the sky high on a solo the guy who posted the original gif it would be frightening if i were him and i received random phone calls random e-mails from see mail out of nowhere i would not be super enthusiastic about c.n.n. one of the largest news communities in the world sending out boy threats about telling you to stop doing what you want to do on the internet policy and has no right to do that c.n.n. has all of the internet against them right now and when organizations attack freedom of speech and never ends up well for them and make no mistake about it this is an attack on the internet and c.n.n. has informally declared war on it in return we need to hit c.n.n. were hurts and told are ever ties and that you do not approve of them by running
ads on their network our site right now on the right of the people who are pushing the c.n.n. black milk hash tag that are exposing c.n.n. for the fraud news network that they are on are doing the right thing. a lot in correspondent checking who deny that having a traditional media is relentless criticism that donald trump's tweets may have backfired. donald trump hit back at criticisms that his tweets degrade the office of the president by posting an admission saying that his use of social media indeed isn't presidential but rather modern day presidential and while the verdict out on whether that's a good thing or not it's undeniable the man understands the power of the internet trump inspires me and creates me trump uses mediums and his twitter posts take the recent c.n.n. wrestling video he shared which was originally posted on reddit a popular viral news and discussion website that modern day presidential post caused an uproar in the traditional media president of the united states taking things way too far and as an incitement to violence he is going to get somebody
killed in the media. might be successful to drum up violence against journalists this kind of behavior to lead to a journalist to be hurt it's no wonder that sixty percent of americans say they have little to no trust in the media and many are turning to social media to get their information a trend that trump has cottoned onto and when the mainstream media makes his every tweet breaking news they're giving trump exactly what he wants i think you guys are getting played man i think every time he does this you guys overreact and i say you guys i mean the media in general you overreact and you play right into his hand whatever trump does they jump on it in a huge scrum he has used the media the social media is used twitter. and twitter has been around for a while he's laying everything they've got i don't like i'm. sure
it's use to me and they don't understand it and they right now are actually a very critical position in their life because the american public has no faith in them which allow for so it seems that's how trump when is war with traditional media through the magic mean. are to you washington d.c. it wants the weekly here in our next quote will surpass the. it's the possibility of a european future with that american way. i think the u.s.
