a very warm welcome to you from all of us here are international in moscow we have your latest world news. u.s. democrats and the media. over a meeting he held last year with a russian lawyer in response he's released the full email exchange from june twenty sixth relating to this very meeting and one of the e-mails off was quote very high level and sensitive information supposedly incriminated presidential candidate hillary clinton and might be of use to senior the information was based on a official documents originating allegedly from a. prosecutor. has actually raised quite a few eyebrows in the media because there is in fact no such official position in russia because while the country is not a monarchy and there are other confusing aspects to this story as well as our
correspondent now explains the story is like a rorschach test meaning that everyone sees a different picture and most of the media sees a picture of collusion entries double. i think he was about to get help from a russian lawyer with ties to the kremlin this is looking more and more like treason intent to collude with the russian government all these strange behavior from the president it's all explained that's not how trump jr sees it he says that nothing of substance was discussed at the meeting which he described as a name nonsense it was such a nothing. there was nothing to tell. me i wouldn't even remember it until you start scouring through the stuff it was literally just a wasted twenty minutes which was whatever the content was the characters involved with the meeting are certainly worthy of a good moving. every
way to come up i'm really tired. we all know her name now and it's highly efficient it's guy at natalia vessel needs sky and italia vessel at sky a. good story but why does everyone want to link this russian lawyer to the kremlin she works in adoption law and does not work with the russian government and why would the russian prosecutor choose all of these
people to deliver sensitive information to the trump camp donald trump jr confirms that this meeting was a big nothing burger he says she did not have any damaging information on clinton but instead this. she wanted to discuss adoption law in the magnitsky act she confirms this. nobody knew who would be attending the meeting although i knew that mr donald trump jr was willing to meet with me do you have connections to grow chicago. know furthermore if this meeting between the trump team in the russian lawyers was about handling damaging information on clinton where is this bombshell we have yet to see any bombshell from the trump team about their opponent so after months and months of proof related to russia being anticipated we finally have a story that's rather complicated in fact it's so complicated that you can see whatever you want the confirmation bias of the reader can lead the mind's eye to read whatever they want into the story if you're determined to see trump works for the
russians you can see it even though the logical links just don't add up cable moppin artsy new york. sundries among those junior publishers e-mails in the name of transparency in fact you have to do to do it for him anonymously via wiki leaks for two hours later publish them himself political and legal analyst lionel told us so there's no substance in this story only the buzzword russia making it a point of discussion for the media whenever you hear about this trouble. meeting always ask the question and. because that's what you have to do the i don't trump jr met with this. and look what we're doing we're talking about what could have been what should have been we're playing what if in any light from any angle there is nothing that is even
remotely almost against the law somebody said treason this there is nothing here but let me tell you what is the saddest part we have been told russia russia russia russia to such an extent that maybe by virtue of this repetition there's been some kind of a cerebral connection made where people impute to guilt whenever that word is met and i'm not kidding you it's almost like a brainwashing there is absolutely nothing to this story no matter how you look at it from anybody's point of view there is nothing there i think i've made that very clear i think. people are starting to return to the iraqi city of mosul after the government declared victory over islamic state there on monday however one of the most difficult tasks could still lie ahead as most of mosul has been devastated by nine months of fighting the u.n.
a number of weapons that are inaccurate and could be quote unlawfully indiscriminate if used in heavily populated areas among them are unguarded artillery rockets and mortars and nikki aaron picks up the story. the liberation of mosul from islamic state has topped the news cycle over the past few days has been full of praise for the victorious iraqi and coalition forces and pictures of celebration victory over isis in mosul. celebrations in the streets of mosul embattled iraqi city of mosul is now free the biggest city in isis the so-called islamic state is in the hands of a lucky troops but against the backdrop of jubilation humanitarian groups crying foul over the plight of locals honesty international issued a fifty page report detailing the extent of civilian suffering calling out in both iraq and the u.s. led coalition forces for repeated violations of international humanitarian law
which it says could amount to war crimes honesty says there was a reliance on imprecise weapons and ignorance to the growing civilian death toll and a failure to adjust tactics to the challenges created by ice still of course you'd never expect much respect for civilian life from the terrorists known for using innocent people as human shields but it seems that those fighting i still somehow turned a blind eye to what they call collateral damage we have already shifted from attrition people probably shelled them from one position to another iraq syria to annihilation two billion casualties or a fact of life in this sort of situation besides any additional needless deaths can just be blamed on the ruthless enemy anyway according to the u.n. the battle for mosul is left almost nine hundred thousand people displaced more
than eight thousand civilians dead or wounded and one hundred thousand children at risk sure it's heartbreaking now but if only wish heard about it all sooner well the neighboring street. all but destroyed the street across rubble the street over there it's the same story wherever you look at play on your little little. shop this one had your garbage comment but i don't put most of. you. we were sitting at my uncle's house how rude her mother a mom calls wife when back home because howard was sick and the house was shelled by american planes i tried but i couldn't save how or from the shelling and the is strikes and i was still forming itself and there was no it was when it comes to how the battle for mosul will be remembered it is seems these pictures of celebration at the liberation will live on in the media where the civilian suffering will be sufferance in silence while the u.s.
led coalition has reacted to amnesty international's report calling it irresponsible a spokesman added but war is not pleasant and that those who claim otherwise put the lives of civilians and soldiers at risk well another liberation campaign is underway right now as u.s. backed rebels prepare to seize ice falls syrian stronghold rocca the u.n. says between thirty to fifty thousand people are now trapped in that city almost two hundred thousand have already been displaced heroes some of their stories. i assure you that actually i'm a little mad about dash dash well it's not as nesmith has met but should have warned you that when you don't actually you anybody can do better than have a reason for that has me and the dome that has if you had the field and then has you could move on and i did have to. learn more about them. but i'm not. if you don't know how to be of course you haven't come through. much of.
a tad if you haven't met any. one as a member of us lay of the verb issues would do i shouldn't have to have a been out to one hasn't really. discussed a bit further on the program now i'm joined by political commentator. thanks for joining us here in our international today do you think the cost of liberating iraq could be as high in terms of civilian suffering as what we've witnessed in mosul iraq. no definitely isis to feed must not come an expense of the civilians specially the civilians in besieged areas like that that happen and mosul right now what's going on and rocket i think that the u.s. for the past year since january up until now they have been moving very fast in mosul that's what we saw and we also saw a ban on media says the offensive began against isis inside of mosul they wouldn't allow anyone to take pictures or to come up with reports about what's going on
because of the massive amount of airstrikes the were happening on civilian areas as well as on isis held locations so now the fear is growing the concern is majorly about the fact that. the entire province of only the city of iraq is now being targeted or being prepared to be targeted as a first phase in a campaign to liberate. but the fact that there are huge numbers of civilians there makes it very risky for the coldish and the u.s. led coalition to start slow. an air offensive similar to that of mosul for example already there are one hundred sixty thousand people civilians who have fled the area but there are more than one hundred fifty and the entire province that are still besieged by the terrorists there are not allowed to leave so therefore any sort of a campaign against the area will most definitely increase the number of civilian deaths and to be honest with you the u.s. has not made any sort of willingness to defend or to protect the civilians they put
a plan and they go on with the plan and they don't take any concern whatsoever given the fact that there might be civilians we did see that within a short span of four months between january and march there were more than five hundred deaths civilian deaths in mosul so we might as well see the same in. just a just a moment here i want to just return briefly to the issue of the liberation of. because according to human rights watch the coalition used a number of weapons that could be quote unlawfully indiscriminate if used in a heavily populated areas and now we have a coalition spokesperson calling the report. how fair of a point is that in your. how responsible was there fighter jets when they were bombing civilians we all remember what happened in march in march twenty seventh when an entire building with two hundred plus civilians women children and elderly were taking refuge in one building in mosul and the u.s.
airstrike killed them all just because of one fighter standing on the roof how responsible was that i think this is a hypocrisy i think that the u.s. would just say what benefit is but if its own side at the end of the day but if you go and talk about mosul is done if you want to talk about rocker there are three hundred or three thousand to four thousand isis terrorist fighters and compared to at least two hundred thousand civilians in the province do you think that three thousand fighters are enough to kill the rest two hundred thousand civilians or to at least put them on there the risk of losing their lives i don't think that's possible. no i think that any sort of the campaign whether it was most definitely very happy for the iraqis for liberating mosul from isis but if they had gone with a military strategy similar to that of lucia which is step by step and saving civilian life as much as possible by taking one block after the other i don't care if mosul takes two years to get liberated but at least we would have saved more lives the same thing goes for vodka i mean look if we just cooked the routes for
isis and we tried to stop the some sort of allies that are going on some side of alliances going on between what the us actually funds and supports on the ground and isis as well and there are lots of reports about that if we stop this sort of alliances and we stop the route of isis it would be phase one we just cannot get into a judge and go fight someone just because they are there you have to make a tactic for it specially here when i say yes or no. this watch on the so-called liberation of iraq right now in syria very interesting points that you bring up for discussion here political. thank you very much for your time today. while russia says it's adhering to the agreements reached by presidents putin and trump during the g twenty summit last weekend the u.s. is apparently losing enthusiasm over them at the most recent example it relates to the process of monitoring the cease fire agreed in syria which has been discussed certainly was discussed in hamburg by both leaders. the u.s.
and russia have committed to monitoring and ensuring humanitarian access to the areas initially security of these areas will be ensured by russian military police in close cooperation with the u.s. to those monitors will be i don't know at this point i know we have folks in the region i know that our special envoy to syria is actively engaged in these conversations so i anticipate we'll get that information in the near future. the details of the agreed ceasefire in syria which came into force last sunday are just one of the things the us government appears to be playing down. this report from washington. the highly anticipated biological meeting between donald trump and lot of your putin at the g. twenty summit and with high hopes that the two countries could finally leave all the bad blood behind and see a new stage in relations after the two presidents met in hamburg tillerson came out saying that they had great chemistry they discussed cyber security and the cease
fire in syria and were really ready to move forward to discuss that joint cyber security in it but trump has since backtracked on that with a post on twitter after the idea was widely attacked here in washington and about that cease fire in syria the most important achievement reached by the u.s. and russia in conjunction with jordan moscow has already outlined what role in the suspension of hostilities they will play but america has yet to be clarified and recent reports show that the pentagon was left completely out of the process we reached out to the pentagon to see if they could shed some light on the plan and they in turn said that the state department was the head agency and referred us to them but they also have yet to come up with a solid strategy in terms of who was doing what when where or how some of those details are still being worked out so no real answer there either and the spokeswoman also had a rather strange reaction to russia's foreign minister having made comments about working on a cease fire monitoring station in jordan is there any clarity so far on the
monitoring of the syrian cease fire. yesterday that it was going to be done with the united states and jordan from the center and give any more details on that mr lacker likes to talk a lot and get out ahead i think of some of the negotiations that are underway that is all still being worked out so we're seeing again one step forward two steps back on what's becoming the usual u.s. approach to working with russia some of america's partners in europe of also pointed. being consistency of america's russia policy german government official go to has lashed out at the u.s. saying its policy is an indecisive back and forth with no clear direction a former u.s. diplomat jim just trust told us what's behind the mixed signals coming from washington. if the russians believe the americans are talking with two voices that's because we are clearly i think president trump is very sincere in trying to work out some kind of a broader arrangement with moscow and they he faces tremendous opposition here in
washington from people who didn't want this meeting to take place at all or wanted to be at best a pro-forma handshake and pleasantries kind of thing not to affect any substance we have a lot of people here in the if you will in the deep state who don't want any cooperation with russia at all on anything particularly on syria and there is a huge potential that somebody may try to sabotage it but i am still rather optimistic twenty patera moscow still lots of stories coming your way here on this network including well hungary an american billionaire george soros he's upset in quite a few officials around the world that israel is the latest to jump on the wagon we'll give you the details in just a moment. what politicians do so to speak to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and should. want.
be with us today the government has launched a countrywide. depicting the. american billionaire as being used by the government as. cold and hungry so allow more refugees into the country where migrant sentiments are strong as coal was swiftly dismissed by viktor autobahns government. campaign is room in this interview are darkest hours. these billboards of memories but also saw hatred and fear. although israel's ambassador to hungry and actually
criticized the campaign televisa quickly released a clarification condemning the actions of george soros both in hungary and in israel we discuss the situations in both countries with an israeli activist saurus is very hostile towards israel and the here was it kind of situation in hungary because it was sorest did he supported all kinds of what we call orange revolutions which on the surface were very peaceful mother there of the day we saw these blood spilled in the ukraine blood spilled in beliefs in many other places where soros put his fingers as you know now the reason compan in the united states that russia meddle in the us elections i don't assemble they're talking about the united states government invested money and in undermining israeli prime minister during the campaign they do it all they interfere they mad
all and then the queues others of doing i mean this is kind of the pocket which needs to be stopped and we agree with the government of one hundred garrion when they want to say stop stop. and george soros has alleged meddling is also becoming a concern in america back in march this year several republican senators attempted to launch a probe into where taxpayers' money ends up after being sent to n.g.o.s belonging to george soros somehow the whole initiative was rejected despite a collective letter sent to the secretary of state rex tell us. all right coming up next here on this network of the film puerto rico anger on the island unless you're joining us from the u.k. you're going underground.
