every nice day. election day. the people go to exercise that are more nothing. can stop the will of the venezuelan people to go and to exercise their will and to apply the democracy the opposition choose to be out and to accept it to be out of this of this procedure what we have to wait. and of the opposition if they leave they will accept the result or not this is the issue right now. a journalist working with r.t. is arabic channel has been killed by islamic state in syria. was covering a syrian army operation in the homes province when his convoy came under mortar fire a syrian soldier also died in the attack three other people were injured including
a cameraman i later started working with our team back in april reporting on the plight of families caught up in the war he was twenty five years old. the head of the arabic has expressed the channel's condolences to khalid's family and friends my a man a sudden a statement we will support them in any way possible and we thank god for his
courage and bravery so here is a reporting on the plight of civilians from rocka. those who use the u.s. led coalition planes and those who give the orders of a long think about the consequences of their actions civilians have been killed or forced to flee because of them and the infrastructure has been destroyed all civilians claim that the pretext of fighting against terrorism and extremism is used to justify the actions of the coalition. but it was no more water for irrigation as the land has been in record profits and there is no hard and if any crush did remain we were not allowed to use. to hurt if one of the coalition carries out and struck some screens so children
don't study anymore many more civilians were injured when the coalition hit hospitals as well. and the just sign now is for the hellish jets bombed ourselves so we stop and go on lots of civilians were killed in an airstrike as they were sheltering in fear at the time. lebanon's hezbollah fighters have recaptured the last stronghold of the al nasra terror group in the country and they also mountains are located in eastern lebanon we can show you on the map here it's right along the lebanese border with syria you can watch the border line here now for six years since the start of the syrian war this entire area right here has just been a hotbed for extremists. now travels to the newly liberated area. these are the ourselves in the east of lebanon it's the latest scene of the victory
of hezbollah the lebanese resistance groups who have defeated the al qaeda affiliate. and not so ended just a few days ago and you can still see the remnants of that with bullets and shells all strewn across the floor and we've seen burnt out vehicles on the way up here and during that victory against hezbollah managed to capture this cave which was used by terrorists as a base so we can go inside and have a look around. inside the cave we make the shocking discovery what appear to be prison cells it's unclear why exactly elements were needed prison cells in this isolated area perhaps punishment or perhaps to prevent their own fighters fleeing in the middle of the night these are some of the weapons which
what captured from japan and what we've got these. rockets lots of tactical vests. and there are rocket launches anti time guns and all sorts of all tillery which were abandoned by no so when they were defeated and they left this cave there's even a room where battle plans are drawn up where fights is received instruction to take this seat and listen to the come on this ninety minutes since we were killed in that battle and those who survived many of them fled to italy where in fighting continues between different rebel groups but some of them remained and just a few kilometers away behind these mountains behind us pops more ominous lee many more of them decided to defect to the so-called islamic state and some of the hezbollah commander to tell me that they're only four kilometers away from where we
are now a sadly. he said lebanon. some boss here in moscow since donald trump took office the share price of a number of military industrial companies has just shot up among the companies which have seen their shares rise since boeing which besides civilian planes has a large range of military aircraft as well as lockheed martin a company famous for its fighter jets and missile systems and of course raytheon a major u.s. defense contractor. a top line defense discretionary number is six hundred three billion dollars that's a fifty four billion dollar increase. we must also ensure that nato members meet their financial obligations and pay what they owe.
hundreds of billions of dollars of investments into the united states and jobs. however there are a growing suspicion is that the president simply favors those companies who supported him during his presidential campaign. process takes a closer look. president trump has chosen raytheon executive mark aspirate to be the next u.s. army secretary now why should you care well first of all trump loves the military industrial complex that was submitted new budget to rebuild our military we will give the men and women of america's armed services the resources you need beautiful new planes and beautiful new equipment he'd be lacking a little equipment we're going to load it up but it's not like it really needs all that love i mean look at those numbers the love is all there already second of
there are a lot of the fans companies that want a slice of the pie and here comes mark asper a man who's clearly already had a taste aside from being raytheon's vice president of government relations asper also happens to be one of the main military industrial complex lobbyists in the united states and by the way the love is mutual apparently aerospace defense groups boeing and lockheed martin each donated one million dollars to trump's integration fund now they are enjoying the fruits of working with the new administration we have an administration now that is significant and supports an international work for the domestic us in the street and that has opened several doors for us so what's wrong with this i mean everyone's happy right well the answer comes from the thirty fourth president of the united states white david eisenhower. in the councils of government we must guard guard against the acquisition of don't want
that influence whether sought or runs on by the military industrial complex. the but enjoyed by the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. we must never let the weight of this combination in danger our liberties or the democratic process let's wait and see if history really has taught us anything about misplaced power and unwarranted influence me with jago r.t. . vladimir putin says the time has come for russia to show that it will not leave us sanctions unanswered explained moscow's response to washington's latest restrictions in an interview. that more than a thousand people both diplomatic and technical staff are currently working in russia which seven hundred fifty five of them will have to stop their activities and that's painful. because then that america has taken
a step to jeopardize u.s. russia relations and the important thing is that that step wasn't triggered by anything this is a move to impose a legal restrictions to attempt to influence other countries including u.s. allies here which are interested in developing ties with russia but on the us. and on blogs that we've been waiting for quite a long time so that maybe something would change for the better we had hoped that the situation would change but it looks like even if it does change and it won't be in the near future quarter i decided it is time for us to show you we will not leave anything unanswered here is one that will be a political one. of course we have more to say they're all spheres that we could restrict which would be painful for the united states but i think we shouldn't do that and it's only going to harm us russian relations as they are but it's also going to affect. also russia ordered
the u.s. embassy to stop the use of several facilities here we can show you some of them the new sanctions against russia are expected to be signed by president trump the document approved by the congress to target russia has a lucrative energy trade with the european partners washington claims the measures are in response to alleged election meddling. more of your wealth what headlines justice for. one else seemed wrong. to me. to see. just days after. the trail. when. the party. she still looks for common ground.
those in favor of breaking away demand more representation and a biggest say over what the future will be. explains why the cracks are starting to appear. every country came. from and out of a set of values michael is a third generation might make when it comes to the monthly. redrawn. is too important to be a nation in its own right and a recent poll shows that one in three share his view. of trouble faced strong images is. that they're actually there. is a market. is a market a brand. on me it's a better brand come from germany. it tastes bad smells bad.
while most of the german states are simply called the states all right lol you're right learn a lot mate very good speech three states very it makes. no difference but it's a name it's a little different over the last couple of years but there is a political focus is shifted because of the ongoing refugee crisis hundreds of thousands of migrants forced into germany through the states leading to politicians here to challenge chancellor merkel's. policies. for all them in our culture everyone needs to learn german it's vital to ending a living and maintaining law and order and it should be our own law and order not that of the our rights but the fact of the berkley's i was very the first such you already against splitting the fact there's only one party with an independent there will be their manifesto to buy in part time you believe it should be not
a very dominating state you know we believe that everyone here should be a state which is in a peaceful way to be obtuse and which decides his own. economic situation its own democratic situation its own code from situation and there is not just directed towards berlin now we are ruled by balloon we are ruled from or brussels on the other hand and these people decide a will of the people of the very we have no influence the so called in the european parliament we have only thirteen members and. for example greece which has less inhabitants and about twenty five can move to the political groups which are while they may be some support for a brick or wade. there is a supreme court here in germany ruled earlier this year that any kind of referendum
on the subject would be against the german constitution so for the time being it least the game will continue to rule over the group very unlike peace for all of us . over to the united states now where the house of representatives has passed a spending bill with a whopping one point six billion dollars allocated for the construction of a wall along the mexican american border cracking down on drug smuggling was one of the focal points of donald trump's presidential campaign however some in the state of arizona still not happy with the efforts made by authorities and are now taking matters into their own hands. i built this basically myself a one man thing to over two hundred fifty volunteers in seven years.
we're too politically correct now. diverting somebody's feelings. well you know one two three four that's what they look like. twenty. bill that's going on. this catchphrase the war on. whatever they put it in front of something else the war on drugs the war on terror all that means is there is no goal there is no objective there is no end game i have a saying you want some done wrong get the government to do. some
critics of the approach say it will not help as people in some central american countries are simply desperate to escape the violence that. many good people across central america are facing harassment from most sides the gangs in cottle's work together and make life impossible since the only option is to flee people know they're risking their lives to get to america but they draw the die then seated home and wait to be killed every time americans tighten controls on the border that means more business we're organized crime it means more death and suffering through those trying to get across this problem lou not good bets until a more rational approach is found. i will before we go here on the program bouts of a quick look at the spectacular navy day celebrations that were held in russia just awesome.

international more of your worldwide headlines well for you at about. six guys are financial survival. when customers go by you reduce the price. well reduce and lower. that's undercutting but what's good for markets it's not good for the global economy. what politicians do. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. some have wanted. to go on to be press was
like that before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters and how. things should. this is really going to tell you why i work for say makes possible i work in the area of addiction. and i've been able to. impress upon everybody the need to have trauma informed care yeah right time yeah we're living in our trauma exactly good thought that event is the response to the event over the course of a lot you know for sure especially abuse. of you was family member of. the family lost. two other boys. to some talking about islam and the rest was muslim.
