broadcasting live from the russian capital it's one in the afternoon here in moscow you're watching our team to national with you this hour is and the. a correspondent from russia sporting news agency has been caught up in a gun battle in mosul iraq while she was taking pictures of the mine clearing operation in the historic part of the city she managed to escape unharmed and share her video with us. about it. in must of thought well come on or called looking from from a comment about the.
where you were once all but suddenly on who you got there you got what then and. i gather you go for your i do often i did not come from mother as i was taught. and also one of the up until the world. war the you know. this gunfire happened when sarah neurogenic was filming in a residential area next to the great mosque of al neary the attacker was hiding in a small room in a primary school a journalist believes it was a sniper we spoke to sara after the incident we want. it all for the old and. new. and all. one hundred so well. you know all the.
that. you know. or. had it on the ground. one. morning i did it all the while. the journalist came under fire despite a total victory over islamic state being proclaimed in mosul just last week iraq's vice president has warned there are still more to harness fighters in iraq but in an interview he emphasized one of his major concerns now is to push u.s. forces out of the country iraqi society is against the building of foreign military bases on the territory of the country's iraqi people and not want to reinstall the
japanese joycean american bases so i told the american interests to return to iraq and build your bases you will get burned again you will come as invaders and leave as invaders. in the interview iraq's vice president said he claims by washington that the victory him also was america's achievement artes and you hawkins has been looking deeper into the interview. well the former prime minister didn't mince his words commenting on who really deserves credit for turning the tide of the war i regret the coalition's position i don't agree that mosul is a coalition victory it was their war it was a war fought by the iraqi army yes coalition jet supported us but the main effort was made by iraqi soldiers public militias and iraqi aviation strong words from maliki who was similarly scathing about their alleged u.s. role in the creation of arsal force many analysts view the world's most notorious terror group as emerging from the post iraq war vacuum the former prime minister
though went a step further seeing this as part of a wider historic us foreign policy strategy for. the obama administration bears a huge amount of responsibility for the rise in expansion of islamic state and for the consequences that followed islamic state didn't appear from nowhere islamic state resembles the taliban which was formed by the american administration to oppose the soviet authorities during the war in afghanistan just across the syrian border i sill is also on its way to defeat as a battlefield force with russia backing the assad government salmi against the rate of terrorist groups a russian presence in syria has been routinely criticized by many western powers maliki though sees russia's involvement in a very different light. without the russian stance the whole region would have crumbled the map would have looked totally different without russia's approach to the syrian problem which differs from america's the syria regime would have fallen
that would have energized the terrorists led to a change map of the region and it would have led to baghdad's fall. i would are still seemingly on its last legs all eyes are on what's next for iraq and despite a string of military victories for government forces the battle for a united country is far from over well if the split between this sudanese and the shias remains in place and one group of states supports the sunnis and another the she is it will contribute to the creation of a new eisel with new ideas new faces and new francs a so far the main efforts in iraq are focused on the short term goal of defeating i so but with a whole patchwork of regional internal conflicts it will be the longer term why the problems that will need careful and painstaking resolution in the coming years. most residents have been complaining about the huge destruction caused by american airstrikes and share their frustration with professor saeed mohammad marandi from the university of tehran he gave us footage that he filmed during
a trip to the devastated city and as you can see there the level of destruction is truly shocking buildings in ruins burned cars and rubble are on the ground mohammad marandi shared his experience of visiting the city with us. they all seem those who we spoke to them terribly step for they were all they all seem very pleased too for the city to have been retaken but they were saying that the american airstrikes were very devastating and very. hurtful to ordinary people and that many civilians were killed they also they more or less across iraq in the cities that i've been to i'm in baghdad right now people have been blaming the united states more than anyone else for this devastation. unfortunately the iraqi government to spend doesn't have the money to rebuild the city because it's still fighting the war it's trying to liberate the west of the country there
is no way that any of these cities are going to be rebuilt any time soon and i think that many people will gradually leave the country and move towards europe because there's just no hope. we also actually the same group of people we visited aleppo right after a liberation as well and what it was very interesting or very unfortunate was that the devastation was very similar to the devastation that we saw in west and the the bombing by the americans basically destroyed so much of that part of the city the west side of the city yet the western media said almost nothing about it was when in syria russian syrian iranians were trying to liberate the city from their forces what the western media was talking about the russian air
force and the syrian air force being civilian targets and so on but what we saw in mosul was the same amount of devastation yet nothing was we see we hear nothing from the western media. the italian prime minister apollo gentil loney has expressed his discontent at the way his country's neighbors are reacting to the refugee crisis he also said italy will not be threatened on the matter. i will not accept lectures and still less threats such as those we have heard from our neighbors in recent days we are doing our duty and expect the whole of europe to do the same alongside italy the warning comes off to austria threatened to the ploy its military to boaster its border with italy to stop migrants from entering the austrian defense minister said his country needs to ready itself and these measures will be essential if the migrant influx from italy is not reduced italy struggling to cope with a huge wave of new arrivals this year alone almost one hundred thousand refugees
have reached the italian coast by sea that's eighty five percent of all migrants who came by sea to europe it's prompted an anti-establishment movement in the country to present a radical proposal. not. the west. but ok let's. go. to the. local mayors have also tried to draw attention to the crisis staging rallies to protest what they say is an unsustainable number of refugees being settled in the country visited one such town and spoke exclusively to the mayor here's more from. i've been traveling across rural parts of sicily for almost a week now speaking to locals various officials and refugees and i'll tell you what some people may not be willing to admit it but it has really been divided by the refugee crisis there are locals war ready to welcome migrants and refugees without
any preconditions but there are of course others who are willing to put their livelihoods and their concerns first their lives have been hit hard by the economic crisis and they are the ones who now end up having to accommodate the refugees the most vivid example is the mayor of a small community. he told me how he started a protest place that has been quiet for decades when dozens of refugees and migrants were moved into an abandoned hotel the mayor along with the locals blocked the way for an elegant generator that was being delivered into the hotel in an exclusive interview he explained to me why they did that. when there's no room there's no room we've already got huge difficulties here like unemployment issues with infrastructure and health care the community does not understand how we can
accept more people when we have all these problems but. only disappointed with his own government just like pretty much everyone in italy that's the impression. i've been getting all the people are critical with the european approach in dealing with the refugee crisis the mayor told me that he believes the countries like germany and france are trying to keep up with the status quo whereas it is italy that is getting the first impact of the refugee crisis and it is being left alone in dealing with this. the e.u. betrayed italy with a problem that's not a talian per se actually it's totally european we are at the forefront italy is where they arrive first but the european community doesn't seem to care some countries even closed their borders more of that exclusive interview with the mayor and also my trip to the abandoned hotel that's now been turned into
a refugee shelter. and the full report that will be aired on r.t. international throughout tuesday as in the medicine just there numerous rule towns in italy are struggling with similar issues he also discussed a problem with a lawyer who represents a community in the silly in town wealth or taste want to house migrants in an abandoned school building but laura told us a different approach is needed. most of the. putting migrants here into buildings like this is racism these kind of things make us racist the criticism from the community begins when locals realise that the migrants won't know what to do in this location so when migrants end up with nothing to do and there's someone amongst them inclined to criminal behavior it means they could start intruding getting into other houses and properties but their problem is not just this it's bigger it's about the lack of ability and opportunities to integrate so in these circumstances the refugee simply when blend into society this could lead to drug dealing issues and crime and that's reason why
the community is being so critical. the risk is that the shelter could turn into a gets a kind of concentration camp because the migrants will have nothing to do here they can't go to the seaside you can't go to the beach gym or socialize with other guys that's what we'll be telling the government and another bid to draw attention to the growing public discontent over the influx of migrants to italy so-called with an message has emerged in a field near for rhona it depicts a vessel called africa next to a vertical line creating stop you beneath the ship as a reference to a proposed nationality law which would grant italian citizenship to second generation immigrants born in the country a huge piece was created by a land artist and it stretches across twenty five thousand square meters. at a boarding school in central china all girls are training hard to become skillful warriors they live in spartan conditions and their only toys of sorts knives and
their own fists watch the premier. today on r.t. . ah. well actually i have found that. the failure to your target how do you know diana and her dad verify you by the hurtful and i highly harsh thing issue i would have higher than you are they dad joe should i shout out that i've been a cash machine. for good. seems to be so.
welcome back to the program the taliban has claimed responsibility for a massive blast in the afghan capital kabul earlier today that killed twenty four and injured at least forty two these are pictures of the aftermath of the blast a suicide bomber rammed a car packed with explosives into a minibus carrying government employees the taliban said it was targeting the country's intelligence service however most of the victims were civilians here some eyewitness accounts. of two of my friends were also wounded when we emerged there were many ambulances and other injured people some civilian cause in the area were damaged but. with the help of my friends and other people. around sixty week terms from here that's all i read was a lot of there is air on the air. following three weeks the tension a man with a severe muscle wasting disease who was convicted of armed assault in russia has
been freed from jail and a mummy have had been given a four and a half year sentence i was released on health grounds he gave his first interview to r.t. . to the billion dollars it was hard to comprehend what was going on with me i understood just one thing i'd been deprived of my life my family my relatives and i wouldn't last long at that moment i was sure i would never see my mother father my daughter my partner again i thought that all that was left to me was waiting for a painful death at the detention center every single person that saw me was at a loss and shocked certainly those who worked there went straight to me is they had heard of me they came specially to see me as everyone was wondering how this could have happened they also me but i couldn't give an answer as i couldn't understand how either. twenty eight year old has a rare disease where almost all his muscles can't function he weighs just eighteen kilograms and can only move around with the help of others he was found guilty of armed robbery and stealing a motorbike according to the court investigation might have was accompanied by
three men and they together threatened to shoot the owners of a motorbike. the fact that someone in his condition was held in a normal prison triggered huge public outrage so petitions were launched calling for a moment after release which gathered almost one hundred thousand signatures senators and politicians also weighed in along with russia's commissioner for human rights despite being released on health grounds though his conviction still stands although there are said to be an appeal hearing on august the third may have said his experience has taught him to rethink life. when i arrived home everyone ran into my arms and burst into tears my daughter reached for me and cried i didn't expect that i was told that every day she asked when i would return once she saw me on t.v. and i asked why they told her that i was feeling bad and she cried for quite a long time my girlfriend and i are not married many people are familiar with my situation you postpone events for many reasons like you want to earn more money when i was stuck in the detention center i promised myself to implement in life all
