thank you so i. don't work when i started going. among the stories that shaped the week r t talked exclusively to the russian lawyer at the center of a media scandal over her meeting with donald trump jr last year. violent clashes between israeli police and muslim worshipers rocked jerusalem this week after the israeli government was all extra security at the record. it went into one of four by six meters one hundred fourteen men that had been there for bomb really horrific conditions. are revealing video shows i saw the suspects being held in dire conditions inside an iraqi prison sparking concern from human rights groups we hear from one of them. and flexing their wings for the final time in the last
international air show wraps up today just outside of moscow take a look at the highlights of this year's event. thanks for tuning in as twelve in the afternoon here in moscow you're watching the weekly on our team to national with you this hour is at least. and this week r.t. spoke exclusively to the russian lawyer at the center of a scandal over her meeting with president eldest son ahead of last year's election as the latest in a range of stories claiming there was directly luzhin between the kremlin and team trump in order to get him into the white house however we've been hearing the lawyer side of the story. we all know her name now a television star telly official natalia vessel needs sky natalia the sound this guy of the new talia vessel in its. wake up one morning and find you are the focus of the all the fire and kin stream media.
i don't know what it turns out it was nothing we managed to track down the elusive natalia vest on its guy and the woman who was almost become a household name in recent weeks also off to her meeting with donald trump jr last year and which she said she wanted to discuss the reputation of one particular man and his association with the magnitsky along with his past time of lobbying for u.s. sanctions on russian individuals this person who she says has most of mine did this latest russia trying collusion scandal. today i have to think about my safety first and foremost about the safety of my family my four children it's been revealed that mr browder has been gathering information about me so who is william browder maybe
not a familiar name for most but for thirty's in russia he's a wanted man quite literally he's wanted for tax fraud on top of this leaked us state department e-mails reveal that brown i was actively gathering information about the vessel and its guy ahead of when this scandal broke and that included personal details such as where she lives so given this information in beslan it's seems quite convinced that browder has harbored a personal vendetta against her perhaps something to do with the facts that he once lost a case in court to her now this was a two thousand and thirteen case in which a vessel in its guard represented the cyberspace company previn's on holding which is owned by a russian businessman wrote a had accused the company of money laundering. the case was finally settled in may this year with no admission of guilt by a preface on you or mr browder and his team have been gathering information about my family to try to find out whether i'm married or not whether i have children or
not they found photos of my house and sent them to parker he's a famous man in the house of representatives they shared all these details with people from the state department i don't know why he's doing this i can only make assumptions here i see today's situation has been heating up for ten days or so as a very well orchestrated story concocted by one particular manipulator and that is mr browder. now what is best known for is his role in the magnitsky act this is an act named after a russian lawyer who was once employed by brown as company in russia he was later arrested in connection with a tax fraud case and he died was being held in detention browder later played a major role in law being for a set of sanctions to be imposed by the us on the number of russian individuals over magnitsky death and brought it claims he knew magnitsky personally but according to vesa lipsky on this couldn't be further from the truth and this is where i don't try and do enters the picture and the big question for many is why
does us the next guy was so keen to inform the trunk team about the milly arity with brown his reputation. this was the story that i brought to donald trump jr i wanted him to know that browder a person who gave up his u.s. citizenship is trying to manipulate people in congress and now we even know their names the media have disclosed them he was making all those connections even though he hadn't lived in the country for twenty years was not paying any taxes not doing anything useful in fact his only mission was to go after his opponents while gaining some political capital it was nothing but retaliation from this man who did this in order to distract everyone with the big story is the government. so can you refute this information from the emails released by donald trump jr where goldstone . i don't know that person and now we come to the name rob goldstone when don't turn jr went public last week it included e-mails from the entertainment
publicist and which he claims to have information on hillary clinton which quote would incriminate hillary and her dealings with russia and would be very useful for donald trump's campaign but that apparently this guy is just a music producer my guess is that this man is used to selling and promoting ideas some product so he decided that i would be this product for sale and promotion. and it was also within. goldstone e-mails that the mention of russia's prosecutor general came up leading to questions of a vessel in its guy's possible ties to the kremlin. the prosecutor general's office of the russian federation deals with criminal cases that is the role defined by federal law and the constitution there's no me and the prosecutor general where are my and where is the prosecutor general. now that's on it's guy a woman unwillingly thrust into the spotlight is having serious concerns for her safety especially considering how she has a family and four children who are now also vulnerable to media focus but despite
this she is by no means running away from the attention and says she is more the ready to testify in congress to the senate these days but let's put it this way i'm ready to clarify the situation behind this mass hysteria but only through lawyers or testifying in the u.s. senate. there have been chaotic scenes near the holy site of temple mount in jerusalem that's after israeli police moved in with tear gas stun grenades and water cannon to disperse hundreds of palestinians it was. the first indians gathered to pray near the temple mount and a show of protest against a hike in security at the site when israeli troops moved in to confront the crowd responded by flowing stones and setting tires on fire engines in their area have been running high all.
was. was. was. was the only thing that was back up was. the globe oh. oh that the clashes erupted following the decision of the israeli government to implement extra security measures to prevent terror attacks the. i can security at the el mosque which includes metal detectors came after two border police officers were killed in an attack in east jerusalem the subsequent protests around the holy site of temple mount resulted in repeated
confrontation with israeli police. simple model or as is known to muslims as one of the most contested religious sites in the world for jews is believed to have been the site of to biblical temples and the mosque which is also located there is a third holiest site the temple mount is administered by our jordan based religious authority. well those metal detectors came as a result of a heinous murder on a holy spot these are not just metal detectors. action out of money to change the order to be changed to school a heinous murder takes place then security measures are brought in and then israel is blamed for taking the security measures it's a reaction to the first event which was horrible terrorism well first of all i don't know. if the public knows the people who commit the acts with israeli citizens by the way people have to accept the fact that israel is the sovereign
that jerusalem is our capital city and that the temple mount is the heart of our heart you accept those things then we can have a dialogue and conversation you saw on t.v. how the israeli army is do you think peaceful nonviolent people who are just praying there that i was myself injured two days ago by the israeli army when i was just all i did i wanted to bring in their attack does this sort of are sort of out of bullets and injured us i think the best alternative would be for jihadists to calm down or to be defeated and for there to be equal access to the site for all religions including jews go put it with the palestinians remove the cause of all conflicts which israeli occupation and stop israeli aggression on palestinians this we we can achieve peace. and migrant prices continue to weigh heavy on european countries this week it's recurrently bears the brunt of refugees trying to reach the continent almost ninety four thousand have arrived by sea this year
alone and that number is expected to double by december however i grouped up the friend europe is trying to stem the flow of the group a stabbing a ship to the region in a bid to turn back migrant boats coming from africa it's bankrolling the mission with more than one hundred twenty six thousand dollars raised through crowd funding . overwatch was listening for diligent costarred about the doings and think you would trust the biggest emergency plan to get the best west signals from the west to the people in distress and make sure that they've brought back to the libyan coast.
the best so will be based on this is still the import of catatonia and it will be patrolling the mediterranean off the coast of libya the mission says it wants to expose humanitarian groups that it claims are working directly with people smugglers but the tenure as mayor has branded that the friend europe initiative a provocation artes in the are trying to challenge one of the group's members and reaction from local italians. we're at the port of in sicily among the ships that come into the sport you will every now and then see boats full of migrants but we are here to talk to an activist who is expecting the arrival of a very different kind of boat with a very controversial purpose. so somewhere around here will probably arrive by next week. when we cherish of course is a cultural identity are you a racist or an extremist organization your final purpose is what.
we want to ensure that europe stays in europe this is what some people call racism . i think the european union should feel ashamed now they want to use sicily as a rallying point for disgusting racism that does not belong to our culture i know that our welcoming culture is disliked by european fascists but we won't give up we are not going to be silent in the face of this call to violence against desperate human beings these peoples need to buy history books we're not trying to provoke a situation where anybody's life is at risk so you're not attacking them i know we're not attacking migrants we're not going to attack the n.g.o.s we would just try to document what they're doing and we want to make sure that these n.g.o.s are not working as some kind of proxy for the human traffickers what happens if you see that someone's life is in danger we will also come and rescue them really and what are you going to do when a refugee on your boat well we will try to bring them to africa again.
people of sicily have gotten used to migrants to the many n.g.o.s that have come here to help but an anti migrant ngo patrolling the mediterranean that is something most people here have never heard of so let's ask the locals about the cause. so what do you think of the n.g.o.s that are working in the mediterranean to help the migrants the moon as they see the bits and i don't like what they doing what if this is right twinging and geo both doesn't sound good this is the boat. the right wing activists will be on this boat they will be patrolling the mediterranean to make sure that there is no illegal migration and to make sure that the n.g.o.s don't break the laws what do you think about that good job like that it's good and the opinion of the migrants. they don't want migrants here i mean. if they don't one migrants i mean they have to be out the make
a stab at peace and stability in libya they say if they rescue migrants from the boats they will take them back to africa that this is that is what they want how can someone who is live i mean up in the middle of militancy you know take the bus to africa that's not fair i mean some people call them racists do you agree with that there's no racist but a story there's already too many people here yet no jobs so there's no room for everyone do you think that's racist i don't think so and i'm not against helping migrants but we should help them in their own countries so here's a seeing that seems to have become typical for sicily we've got a park where we can see the migrants then and geo group to help them and also their locals who are still feeling the burden of the economic crisis and don't want migrants and their hometown and all of them are in one same part not too long before right wing activists join the mob the club the trend toward tea could tiny
do think that archie is propaganda arm of the russian government and helps to spread this information that helps advance russia's interest and so that's why i think it's important for people like me to come on if it were me would be somebody who is less capable who would maybe not do as good a job presenting the american point of view. welcome back to the program new footage some of which you may find distressing has emerged from inside an iraqi prison near mosul apparently showing suspected members of eisel being held in dire conditions where they from human rights watch told us what she saw when she visited the site. i went into one cell four by six meters one
hundred fourteen men that had been in there for four months and the windows had been bricked off the stench was was immense with men not being allowed to shower no bathrooms besides one toilet in the room really reflect conditions. the video shows almost four hundred inmates who are said to have been held for months without a trial they're packed into dark rooms with no electricity or ventilation in thinking heart conditions as temperatures outside reach forty five degree celsius guard to the prison say people are falling ill due to a lack of hygiene and daylight. human rights watch visited these very same prisons in february and released a report where we documented in detail the horrific enqueue inhumane conditions in which these men are being held there were rampant problems of the ill treatment and in fact there were multiple men that are dying in detention because of the sanitary
and hygiene conditions in those facilities you know prisoners whether or not they're being charged with isis affiliation and how basic rights and you have to imagine i mean these images only give you a small snapshot. we've raised these allegations with the iraqi authorities we've raised these allegations with the coalition and fortunately i have not seen anything to suggest that they are urgently investigating nor post investigations actually holding any commanders accountable unfortunately this is an old story in iraq where for years we've been documenting the most serious abuses and the government may pronounce that they will investigate but to date we have not seen a single investigation leading to results and accountability. one of america's most senior generals has admitted the u.s. presence in syria has little that just
a messy saying of russia played at the legal card washington could be obliged to leave the country here's the conundrum we are operating in the sovereign country of syria the russians there are there are there are stalwarts there are back stoppers have already uninvited the turks from syria. day away from the russians saying why are you still in syria the u.s. and its it is come up in the form of some some close calls there. meanwhile president obama has called a halt to a covert cia train and assist program for moderate rebels in syria and the move generated plenty of media attention many media outlets are presenting the reported move as a victory for flood i'm a poet and this is just trump has kept pitch elated on a key u.s. foreign policy goal in order to try to improve relations with russia. the cia program was launched back in two thousand and thirteen under the obama administration it has provided training for commanders from the free syrian army at
bases in jordan and supplied certain opposition groups with weapons and equipment the scheme reportedly cost a billion dollars a year. it's not been without its critics though in two thousand and fifteen overall spending on the program was scaled back following claims of its ineffectiveness and in two thousand and sixteen clashes between two different rebel groups one armed by the cia and one by the pentagon raise further questions there are also concerns after reports emerged that some of the weapons intended for syria were repeatedly stolen by jordanian intelligence agents and resold on the black market a former you came bastard to syria told us the significance of the decision to end the program is being overblown. it's hysterical and quite simply if you can put. in the mainstream media in the west that makes the news in truth. is not based on any objective reality. in this case what may turn out to be quite
modest inflection of american policy long overdue supported by those pillars of the state of. the national security agency that. could. just be called. a little bit closer with russia is. today marks the final day of the max international air show i believe we can show you some live pictures just outside of moscow and today more than twenty five displays are being staged by a whole range of different aircrafts air shows running all week and yesterday one hundred seventy three thousand people attended it was not only a chance for them to see some spectacular playing tricks in the sky but also to get up close and personal with some of the very latest technology which is exactly what
our take a partridge has been doing. here above me back to his it makes thirty five fighter jets just to prove that we really are here and it's just behind me as well the big thirty five because what we got to be talking about today is all things military answer join me to talk about what makes that plane so unique is douglas barry he was an expert when it comes to military avionics thank you very much indeed for joining me thank you so let's just very briefly talk about this particular plane what is it about the make thirty five that makes it so unique thirty five is probably the last iteration of a very famous fighter family family. the thirty five is an upgrade in terms of engines avionics radar and weapon systems so this me me me me the aircraft as you service but also do you. what is it about this particular show the sheer that's really impressed you what stood out for you oh it was good for me two things one just continues to develop his military capabilities secondly the chinese in the
arena and presence they're both here in significantly more numbers and showing more equipment new level we've ever seen before and i might see a show this also before we go let's have a quick reminder of all the aerobatics the specially strikes and everything else that happens here at max. we've seen some amazing planes and because the flying the sky there it's amazing to be here to take this for instance this is trace and it can fly they can also drive and they can spread. another thing that i've seen here is a flying taxi just like those from back to the future road. when we don't need roads. and i
had a sweetie experience of what it feels like to operate one of those cars so what is he not is this small or yellow because this is basically the house sort of terms that but the operating that people around you got this big car that looks a bit like the fact that the i spoke to one of the men behind this project and he says it's only a couple of years to go before we'll all be able to enjoy the ride oh in twenty twenty to go to dulles you just a pop up your mobile app and you will have an elevator button for the for the their taxes to put you off the island almost anything to very much indeed although you know ladies and gents. we feel as though that it was back to the future but the future perhaps just so far away these twenty twenty. you can continue to watch the max air show live vote on our website r.t. dot com and on our you tube channel and if you want to get a feel of what it's like to be piloting one of those max airplanes i can see behind me to check out our latest three hundred sixty degree video on you tube thanks for
don't. recruit we'll sisters if the cadet is interested in going in the military but we don't recruit ourselves. the pentagon is funding a program to boost interest in the military among teenagers your chance to step up to an apollo so that melts away for a comfortable with yourself. things about yourself you can't go wrong with the military it's a great stepping stone for whatever career you want to do but some veterans are willing to tell enthusiastic children a little more they ask me call of duty is a very popular first sure video game log it's play and that's because military like call of duty to turn off call of duty oh yeah well you can't turn off work and lot of these kids just don't hear. the darker side does the pentagon allow them to be told or does it just need more recruits. welcome to max kaiser.
yanks this is what happens to pensions in britain. as a report. in denmark this situation is all the more disturbing in that few associations exist to a company over indebted people some full of tears provide free counseling but mainly for those who live below the social minimum the others have to fend for themselves or call upon private specialized companies consultants since the two thousand a crisis such consultants have proliferated to denmark and take advantage of the situation to sell their services to people in financial difficulty. with. this.
