flexing their wings for the final time the max international air show wrapped up today just outside of moscow we take a look at the highlights of this year's event. good evening to you my name is neil harvey and you're watching the weekly here on r.t. international. this week r.t. spoke exclusively to the russian lawyer at the center of a scandal over her meeting with president trump's eldest son of last year's u.s. election the latest in a range of stories claiming direct collusion between the kremlin and team trump in order to get him into the white house we got the lawyers 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 natalia vessel in its. wake up one morning and find you are the focus of the
all the fire and kin stream media 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 was 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 years 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 it 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 brown. and i what is best known for is his role in the magnitsky act this is an x. 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 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 any or 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 millionaire or say well brought 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 us 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 he was for 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. so can you refute this information. from the e-mails released by donald trump jr where goldstone. i don't know that person and now we come to the
name rob goldstone when doro turn jr went public last week it included emails 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 the goldstone e-mails that the mention of russia's prosecutor general came up leading to questions of a vessel that skier'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 mine where is the prosecutor general. now that's on its guy or 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 than ready to testify in congress to the senate next door that let's put it this way i am ready to clarify the situation behind this mass hysteria but only through lawyers or testifying in the u.s. senate. here six scenes have been unfolding near the holy site of temple mount in jerusalem this is after israeli police moved in with stun grenades and water cannons to disperse hundreds of palestinians. who were. listing is gathered to pray near the holy. he cited a show of protest against a hike in security at the site when israeli troops moved in to confront bank crowds palestinians responded by throwing stones and setting tires on fire one of our
security measures including the installation of metal detectors and that was after the killing of two border police officers in east jerusalem saturday night two palestinian teenagers were killed in clashes three others were killed in clashes the night before as were three israelis in a west bank stabbing. the sector general of the arab league has reacted to the new security measures with a statement that says israel is playing with fire and risking crisis with the arab world in a bid to impose a new reality on the holy site. temple mount or her life is known to muslims is one of the most contested religious sites in the world for jews it's believed to have been the site of two biblical temples and their likes a mosque which is also located there is alarms third holiest location double amounts of ministers by a jordan based islamic religious or thora thirty we heard polarized views on the ongoing conflict. well those metal detectors came as a result of
a heinous murder on a holy spot these are not just metal detectors. one action out of money to change the already 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 offense which was horrible terrorism well first of all i don't know. if the public knows the people who committed the attacks were 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 three 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 pray in their target 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 cooperate with the palestinians remove the cause of all conflicts which israeli occupation and stop israeli aggression on palestinians this where we are we can achieve peace. new video has emerged from inside an iraqi prison near mosul that apparently shows inmates being held in tahlia conditions this video now shows almost four hundred prisoners who said to be held for months without trial but packed into dog rooms no ventilation.

facilities you know prisoner is whether or not they're being charged with ice is affiliation and how basic rights and you have to imagine i mean these images only give us a small snapshot. we've raised these allegations with iraqi authorities we've raised these allegations with the coalition unfortunately 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 her ears we've been documenting the most serious abuses and the government made pronounced that they will investigate but to date we have not seen as a single investigation leading to results and accountability. trying to stem the migrant flow into europe and the. story after this break.
in case you're new to the game this is how. the economy is built around corporate corporations from washington to washington the media. the media. and voters elected a businessman to run this country business equals. boom bust it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. you can revolt against the dictator but what about the day after i think we as libyan people did not give much thought about that and so they wait for action off the resolution does not build nations. and certainly does not build states.
welcome back tensions have been running high in italy this week as the migrant crisis continues to worsen in the country officials warn the talks with the e.u. to solve the problem have become a quote tug of war at least you know most one hundred thousand migrants arrive on its shores this year alone that figure is expected to double by december but as the impasse drags on a group of activists are taking matters into their own hands doubling themselves defend europe the group setting sail for the libyan coast in a bid to turn back migrant boats that are coming from africa our crowdfunding campaign to support this mission has been pretty successful it's raised already more than one hundred twenty six thousand dollars. overwatch. and inform diligent
about the do what you want trust me you'll see when you get them as well signaled to the west to the people in distress and make sure that they would be brought back to the libyan. defend europe launches its mission next week from the sicilian port of could tanya the activists say their patrols along the libyan coast will help to expose humanitarian groups that they accuse of working with people smugglers to transport illegal migrants to europe but the initiative has seen a backlash from n.g.o.s and rights groups even katon use mare is calling for a boycott all too easily be trying to has more on the mission that is dividing
italy were at the port of could turn 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 or board will probably arrive by next week. when we cherish of course it 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 cold. sure 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 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 angio patrolling the mediterranean that is something most people here have never heard of so let's ask the locals about the
concept what do you think of the n.g.o.s that are working in the mediterranean to help the migrants the moon is this the bit i don't like what they doing what if this is right twinning 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 ngos 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 of. the sense that they say if they rescue migrants from the boat they will take them back to africa that this is. what going on how can someone who is live i mean the middle of militancy to them but to africa that's the thing i mean some people call them racists. do you agree with that. story there's already too many people here yet. 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 scene 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 there are locals for still feeling the burden of the economic crisis and don't want migrants in their hometown all of them are in one same park not too long before right wing activists join the mob the club. could tiny. little his handling of the crisis has resulted in a giant unusual protest in a crop field near the city of rome no one that's pretty much best seen from the sky you can understand why now you can see here a picture of a boat with the word africa on it the words stop next to it that's
a clear reference to the ships that are bringing new comers on mass to italy european union's initials have been crossed out it has been pleading for more help from the bloc in dealing with the migrant crisis also visible is the phrase no to the lore of the soil that's a reference to a new bill that's being debated in the italian parliament it would grant citizenship to children born to migrants in italy critics idea is putting migrants right ahead of those of italians. the migrant crisis is also sparked protests in spain where activists stage the dying in on the big to highlight the number of migrants who have drowned trying to make it across the mediterranean and one in greece refugees there held angry demonstrations over bureaucratic delays that prevented them from being moved to other parts of the european union. red tape is the thousands stranded in greece and separated from their families as
migrant camps in the country become increasingly overcrowded divisions are also emerging between ethnic groups and refugees claim that application rules have been relaxed depending on the country of origin sparking violent confrontations in the camps. and the news the final day of the international air show has wrapped up just outside moscow crowds there were wowed by a dozen in the array of aerobatics with twenty five displays showcasing a huge variety of new aircraft shows been running all week and on saturday alone one hundred seventy three thousand people attended. despite being an air show there was also plenty of action on the ground racing car drivers challenge the pilots in the sky to a race these are pictures of one such event cast upon
a variety of plane think flew did make fighter a yank train a plane and an arrow. and another surprise for the huge crowd was a chance to get up close and personal with some of the very latest in aviation technology that's exactly what artist kate partridge did. if you get here above me that is it makes thirty five fighter jets just to prove that we really are here and also it's just behind me as well that makes thirty five because what we got to be talking about today is all seeing is military and so 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 of mccoy doing fulcrum family the thirty five is an upgrade in terms of engines avionics radar and weapons systems so this may move
mean that the aircraft is in service but also do you. what is it about this particular show the issue that's really impressed you what stood out for you. from your two things one just continues to develop its 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 am i to show this also before we go let's have a quick reminder of all the aerobatics especially strakes and everything else that happens here at max. we've seen some amazing planes and because the flying the sky there it's amazing really good so you take this for instance this is trace and it can fly they can also drive and they can spray.
and other thing that i've seen here is a flying taxi just like those from back to the future road. and we don't need a road. and i had a sweetie experience. what it feels like to operate one of those cars so what is he now he says slowly yes i'm calm but he's basically you know sort of funds that make the operator see that. you've got this big car that it's a bit like the fact the people i spoke to one of the men behind this project he says it's having a couple of years to go before we'll all be able to enjoy the ride oh we're trying to turn to if you go to dulles or just a pop up your my lap and you will come and tell everybody for the for the their trucks and to pick you up when you were going to eat thank you very much indeed for the ladies and gents a pleasure to be with the it was back to the future but the future perhaps just so
for. a week. in the us a child can choose an army course in school. with retired officers as teachers we don't. recruit will says to you 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. to step up to an apollo so that comfortable with yourself. things 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 very popular first sure video games. it's play an ask me it's like call of duty to turn off call of duty oh yeah or you can turn off more melodic it's just don't hear. the darker side does the pentagon allow them to be told or does it just need more recruits. here's how it started with u.s. households sinking ever deeper into debt encouraged by the government and the banks to take out mortgages even those who did not have the means to do so. until the day the bubble burst this has been a historic sunday asked at this hour the lehman brothers investment bank it appears
heading toward bankruptcy in two thousand and eight the poorest homeowners unable to meet their mortgage repayments began to massively sell off their properties the real estate market collapsed and along with it the banks who become embroiled in these subprime loans. on september fifteenth two thousand and eight the death of lehman brothers the fourth largest u.s. investment bank not the beginning of a huge financial and economic crisis that would spread worldwide going on the likes of it had not been seen since the great depression of the thirty's a wave of corporate bankruptcy is followed with considerable loss of jobs. am people blamed the bankers like here in iceland where eighty percent of the banking system collapsed and even more so in greece where the state teetered on the brink of bankruptcy.
