i. was. simply the little. home sweet home stranded orphans reunited with their relatives in russia after their parents took them to iraq to join i still call to launch the campaign to help with their safe return. in yemen fourteen civilians including children are reportedly killed in a saudi led coalition air strike in the compass oh. and the libyan imaam in switzerland is accused of spreading hate speech against religious groups
and nationalities while receiving over half a million euros in state benefits. hello there it's eight pm here in the russian capital and you're watching r.t. international with me mickey aaron good to have you with us we start with breaking news this hour russian speaking children left stranded at an orphanage in the iraqi capital have returned home it's believed their parents fled to the country taking the youngsters with them to join islamic states.
you. know i now he's going to live with me and my children i want him to understand that he's still a child there from now when everything will be calm and peaceful of course he's going to visit his grandma but now right now for now i won't let him go anywhere i want him to forget everything. lottie's ego has done of joins me now live to discuss this further now you go and needless to say her renders the experience for these children to go through but luckily it's over for some of them now well exactly for some of them it seems that the worst they can put it behind them i mean when we launched this campaign like we launched it earlier this month we could when we filmed these forty eight children in shelters all across iraq and we could only hope that some some of their family left back in russia could recognize them and i mean this story has so far been an emotional roller coaster for everybody involved
if someone. in us could just find someone new as a. local. absolutely heartbreaking to hear their stories and what will clue tell us about the individuals who have come back well we've just seen some of them i mean the boy his name is ali and he's and was in fact among the first relatives to get in touch with us she recognized her nephew a similar a similar story with another boy called sultan morris but the truly remarkable moment in this whole thing in this whole you know taking these children back to russia is the story of the two sisters you've seen them in the video as well d.j. and fatima there are seventy there are from dagestan and there are seven year old neighbor recognized form of playmates in our video and she showed the video to their grandparents and so we went to the grandparents we filmed them
and then we went all the way to iraq to baghdad and showed that video to the sisters and guess what they recognize their former peaceful past check it out there in. the car than they were. it's a very you know sort of school for sure. if we say it to my get discouraged. that i tried. mom of course it could mean. the school was really just so. this was a mom when you only have a mom or kids. and then there's a. new person. to go very discouraged and they're still.
so i mean look at these girls they're like what five maybe but also the oldest is maybe seven years old so imagine being taken away from home to another part of the world into his war zone and being left there and living their will like for years for almost half of their lives so i mean remembering you form a peaceful past is already remarkable in itself a kind of mental and physical state all these children and when they come home well there's plenty of heart wrenching stories really one of them is the story of marion who was always who has also been brought back to russia when we first went to film her she was in such distress she could barely say her name but but still we managed to get an account of what happened to her and listen. to each. step you just need to do that if. it
over no matter what there was just to go the governor to get in there to. get the quaver. if. you. could post a picture. so again she's among those five children who have been brought back to russia so far the ordeal is over but i mean it is important to remember that it is not for the many many other kids left back in iraq who are still waiting for some to recognize them and to take home such heart wrenching stories but what a fantastic initiative this is to bring these children home thanks donna. meanwhile in the city of mosul where those orphans we just for managed to escape the u.s. led operation to liberate it from i'm still has been declared a success despite the inconceivable human cost it was once home to around two
million paypal. was in mosul to witness the aftermath a word of warning you might find the content of the following report setting he kept this up for a needy ten months. u.s. led coalition and the iraqis. but you can still smell yashin this probably won't shock you the destruction in mosul a city in ruins it's already been shown you've probably also heard about the thousands killed the civilian suffering what you will likely haven't heard of is the smell it's noisy eating repulsive and it's everywhere the sort of smell that makes us in stink these sick the smell of rotting bodies. the sickly odor permeates near the entirety of the old city under the rubble
hundreds and hundreds of corpses jihad ists as well as civilians families this is what rescuers have collected just this morning three suspected isis fired. two women and two children this is again just the first few hours of this warning from buildings right around us and they're still not done. most of them are women and children they called this a victory you would never think the smell of victory would make you rich. hundred. ninety five. i was. covering the market even the collection plate that when the spirit of things describable this is what they do day long day right out i don't want to see it was not the time.
it's hard work in more ways than one there are booby traps unexploded jet bombs rockets shells and munitions and the bodies decomposing in the sweltering heat. there was no precision here these was carpet bombing annihilation hundreds buried under rubble hundreds blocked in basements starving or choking to death it will take months to dig up all the bodies months more of trauma. what i see here makes me cry you can bring anyone here and they will break down in tears because we are all human beings. was in june there are some things he couldn't sail camera like
the fact that he and many rescuers have trouble sleeping after all the scene and no wonder it is after all a city of corpses. from mosul iraq. libyan imaam in switzerland is causing outrage over a port his printing messages of hate against the society has taken him in and also that's been providing him benefits including unemployment payments we spoke to get the editor of a swiss primetime current affairs t.v. program which obtained audiotape of the a mom allegedly calling to destroy so-called nonbelievers the phone thought that the man who calls himself a put on more than originally from libya is preaching hate in a mosque in the city of be you have to alter recording he is saying several things for example ask you to destroy them all and get back to his glory also found out
that he's telling several times to syria or to preach in a private islamist t.v. station that he's telling also to saudi arabia where he is a tour guide for believers in mecca rejected documents on several levels before publishing we had to be very very sure at the moment to. put on not only still one of the main subject of the public discussion it is a problem of course the diversity to freedom of speech and the democratic rules or the strongest of an open society of course and hate speech ng is bringing it in danger of course now according to the order of according obtained by the swiss t.v. channel the preacher has called for all the enemies of islam to be punished including jews christians hindus shia muslims and russians and he also believes that those who befriend nonbelievers are cursed or let's take a closer look at the a mom whose words are stirring up his name is abu ramadan he came to switzerland via malta and italy of around two decades ago explaining that hate being pursued by
libyan or thor ities after being given residency status he's since received overhauls a million euros in social benefits. again says that it's outrageous for the a mom to threaten the society he's living in. nor french so it was not possible to integrate him in the top market so it was not possible that he has got work so he got this social welfare of course the views are not excluding him from the social welfare but he got the money exactly from the society he is preaching against already before the investigation to all federal authorities who are excluding. from the start towards next steps or in discussion. belgian police have launched investigations into one hundred eighty nine terrible eight incidents since the bit since the beginning of twenty seventeen as according to the country's federal prosecutor that means an average of twenty three cases
opened every month all over has the details. the focus has switched away from trying to look at those that perhaps could trying come from europe to go to turkey to cross the border to become what was known as foreign fighters in syria that shifted away now following the most recent terror attacks that we've seen if we look at manchester if we look at the boss alone at these were all done in-house as it were they were done in country and that's why the belgian police have switched their focus particularly if we look at abbas alone a terrorist cell that was uncovered in to the north of the catalan capital there abdel barky s.r.t. was named as the the ringleader the ringmaster the radicalized now within a community that was well pretty well integrated and that's why what the authorities are wanting to see is
a register of just who comes and gives speeches now the reason for this is of course that a saturday himself had actually been in belgium but before the attacks took place the bombings at the airport and at the the metro system in brussels what the belgian prosecutors are putting forward is that they want to see a register of just which foreign in mom's a coming into their country and giving speeches i will ask the muslim executive to tell every mosque in belgium who the routed most remote to report but. ultimately though this is well it's the belgian authorities looking at the threat that exists and how that threat is changed and looking at how they can adapt and develop their tactics to stop further possible terror attacks. civilians have been killed in a suspected saudi led coalition air strike on yemen's capital medics said at least
fourteen people including children died in a bombing in sana'a on friday morning we should warn you the pictures we're about to show are disturbed. why. why. our middle east correspondent paula slay has more on friday's deadly bombing in yemen. this follows a suspected saudi led air strike overnight thursday into the early hours of friday morning now rescuers say that they continuing to pull bodies to residential buildings this happened in the southern neighborhoods of the yemenite capital of sana'a in what is distinctly ways eventually area there are no military installations they have whatsoever most of the people that say they are pulling are
women and children. they targeted this house in the middle of the night so why would they do that there were no soldiers or officials there only civilians. sure there were families in this house women children why bomb women and children now this comes after the united nations launched a probe into another suspected saudi led coalition bombing earlier in the week that happened on a hotel in the capital and in that incident something forty one people were killed many of them also women and children our office in yemen has been gathering more information about their strike by coalition forces hotel in some governor on wednesday the twenty third of august in all these cases in which civilians were killed and injured witnesses told the yemen team that they had been no warnings that in the attack was imminent it comes against the backdrop of a diet humanitarian situation that is really just getting worse since these saudi made coalition began its strikes back in two thousand and fifteen there are
thousands of people who have been killed there are millions of people who are starving without access to basic necessities and one of this has led to an outbreak of cholera we are hearing from the world health organization that they have some half a million suspected cases of people suffering from cholera that they are aware wolf we're also hearing from the red cross which says that some fifty seven percent of people don't have access to clean water and roughly the same number of people are suffering from famine so certainly a diet humanitarian situation in yemen as we witness yet again fresh air strikes. it hasn't been established whether riyadh was actually behind friday's strike but the saudi coalition's campaign has been largely criticized since its intervention in twenty fifteen despite that the gulf monarchies still enjoys the support of many western countries in the journalist hussein believes the conflict won't end until the west stops arming the coalition. billions has been killed by the saudi.
when they have bombed dozens of markets fueling that whole within the whole i think the main target is to buy. today this is one of the goal of the world for the united states but it in and that's why we see that the. government keeps ellen was do this all the including why binns a cluster bomb which mainly used bonus of indians area along other saudi is getting a full support from the united states as long. as. fuel in the saudi fighter jet over yemen to continue the war as long as they keep said and why because you will not do anything then they will keep it is even and nothing will be done unless they will stop sit and watch visits to the saudi. the us media is busy trying to find out who they are inspiring the divided sides in american society these days so now
a new article in the washington post suggests that the far right is being guided by a russian influence has the story russia is used to being blamed for all things sinister in this world if it's not hacking someone that it's being labeled authoritarian or just flat out criminals but few have stooped to suggest russia backs nazis until now the washington post claiming the nation that lost more than twenty seven million people fighting fascist germany with every family losing loved ones is a source of inspiration for america's neo nazis now you'd hope such offensive claims would be backed up by undeniable facts but sadly you'd be wrong the article kicks off with a couple of flashy quotes one from a former k.k.k. imperial wizard who calls moscow a key to white survival and then white supremacist richard spencer for whom the kremlin stands as the most powerful white power in the world which yes sounds bad but these men will use anything to promote their agenda so how is that russia's fault when white nationalists claim inspiration. and america's founding fathers as
they do does that suddenly make george washington a nazi sympathizer and what about threw it out after all he's white and powerful too and we're spencer they found a way to drag our teeth into it as well spencer and his wife will welcome this geo political analysts on kremlin funded outposts so just see and sputnik and while spencer yes did appear on r.t. the post gives the fact that after his hail trump salute he became persona non grata here and was never invited again unlike the us media. and that's not all wait until you hear what other nazi crimes russia has committed in twenty fifteen some petersburg hosted one of the most outspoken gatherings of idealogues europe has seen in years now it seems a shame to ruin the papers theories but the event was not state sponsored it was organized by one party not even the russian parliament with white nationalist gathering in charlottesville just
a few weeks ago does that suddenly make the state of virginia a safe haven for nazis no war but sure one right wing form in the country obviously mean russian evil knows no bounds and after all no one else has hosted such an event. we love. our motivation comes from the heart. say an american black walked into this room that person really more to all of us than any of us is to each other well we're in the dark now so let's keep digging what else you got washington post kremlin mouthpieces of infuse yes tickly promoted the views of american neo nazis and white nationalists what is that even based on what listen to the actual words spoken by the russian president on the issue of not only them if nationalism is understood as intolerance can show even ism to other people it is going to destroy our country which we developed as a multinational multi confessional country it not only leads to
a dead end which but down a path of self-destruction russia will do everything not to allow that sound like a nazi leader to you and i save the best for last the article even ties in the recent tragic events in charlottesville none of this is to say that the cold in charlottesville is directly attributable to moscow we have not yet learned of evidence the mystic terrorist is spelled prove prove kremlin views so why stop there if actual proof is unnecessary you also don't have evidence that he likes to watch disney cartoons but he probably does and most of the heroes are white but really who needs proof when it comes to blindly attacking russia these days. r.t. washington d.c. . and other media outlets go even further suggesting that russian intelligence is using hate groups to escalate the situation in america however the original article that makes that is no evidence russia is supporting extreme like groups in the us
earlier we spoke to independent political analyst bill but dr ryan he says some journalists the exact to wait and stress until russian angles can never portray. the journalist responsible for this article was giving his editors the finger because the implication of the of the headline is that russia is justly seen as a center of white supremacy. by american neo nazis the in the middle of the article is a paragraph which undermines totally such a fabricated view of russia and of mr putin he the author went out of her way to stress that russia that moscow has the biggest mosque in europe that russia is the second most important country for migrants have to rise to it's in the world and so forth but in the russia of course is a multinational country with many different. ethnic and religious groups who live in peace this was unnecessary to say but it tells you what goes on in journalism
even in mainstream journalism which is closely controlled by rabidly and russian editorial boards like the washington post and the new york times journalists are not necessarily in sync with the editorial opinions that they dictate what they're supposed to write and if they're clever they do the kind of subversive material that they are the three journalists of this article has done. a british company is under fire for refusing to stop producing a toxic chemical linked to premature death and brain damage their risks were well known even as far back as the one nine hundred twenty s. but that didn't stop the oil corporations from having the substance to feel. at the beginning of the one nine hundred twenty s. the leading american all in the automobile industry added lead to gasoline to obtain a more efficient few at that time that was already. pumped into the system especially
children but hundreds of thousands of tons of lead were spread around causing injury such as impaired i.q. . in a spec is the only firm in the world that still legally making the feel additive tetra if the lead is being branded one of mankind's worst inventions the chemical was used to improve engine performance in cars and planes but exposure has been linked to numerous health problems scientists say children are the greatest risk because they absorb lead into their bones and blood more rapidly resulting in among other conditions learning difficulties stunted growth and lowered i.q. recent studies have also found a link between lead exposure in children and violent behavior later in life but use of the chemical has been banned in most countries. british businesses should be held to the same safety standards for all their products were average air soldier
alond expert in this dangerous substance this by having rules at home to protect their own children is unacceptable the main concern about legit fuel is the fact that they lead and the environment in an uncontrolled way and the people who are most at risk children there is irrefutable evidence that exposure in children affects brain development and affects the cognitive ability of children that you know spike has repeatedly promised to stop production they says only one country is still using the products again toxicologist alister hay warns of the disastrous effect the chemical could have there do you think there is obviously an element of double standards here it could very similar to sales of all it's really . you know something so i'm not allowed to be used in the u.k.
that taught sold to all the countries well clearly the company has a commercial interest in making this so i think you know whilst the company will plead well you know this is just a sale we're selling something that somebody wants to buy and it's not a problem i think you also have to think it's manufacture it's about what the consequence is all report to sell but ultimately i think it is for the government to make a decision about this. i want to get in touch and share your thoughts on the day's stories by following us on facebook and twitter up about can about thirty minutes with money's. the way.
