oh my god. you. feel. us security services planned to raid russia's san francisco according to the foreign ministry in moscow it warns the move poses a direct threat to the safety of russian diplomats and their families. r.t. is searching for any relatives of two more children the suspected are still fighters youngsters the two just to speak after what they've been through. abuse right to your mama nation. and the u.k. it's up to twenty five thousand radical islamists that's according to the u.s. counter-terrorism warden eighteen more than any other country in the european.
welcome it's good to have you company watching r.t. international our top story this hour u.s. security services are reportedly planning to search the russian consulate in san francisco which was closed on washington's orders as part of the ongoing diplomatic route between the two countries russia's foreign ministry says such pose a threat to the safety of diplomats and their families. the u.s. security service intends to raid the general consummating san francisco in some time by the second including the flats of staff members residing in the same building who possess immunity from being so we are talking about invasion of the consular offices in the apartments of the diplomatic stuff with the latter being asked to leave not to stand in the way of the f.b.i. the news of these searches is really an unexpected and forceful further escalation
on america's part now russian russia's foreign ministry spokesperson marias a horrible said that this order poses a direct threat to the security of russian citizens because the searches will not be limited to the consulate itself but will also include the apartments of the russian diplomats where they and their families live and all of whom of course have diplomatic immunity now on saturday staff members and their families including children will have to leave their homes for up to twelve hours understandably causing outrage on russia's part now the closure of the consulate in tune francisco that contains the departments of the diplomats was only announced on thursday around noon meaning that the staff members and their families including children were given only around thirty six hours to leave their homes and the state department spokesperson has said that the facilities will be closed and entry or access to the properties will only be granted with the permission of the department of state this diplomatic back and forth has been unfolding between moscow and washington for a while now but i see a disturbing uptick in the last just
a few days really now russia's foreign minister believes he knows the motives behind the decision coming from the u.s. and says the spot was not started by moscow this. story was not shown it was stilted by the u.s. administrator with the only purpose of the us russian relations and its latest statement the russian foreign ministry stated that this conflict was forced upon them by washington's decisions and while d.c. continues to up the ante both sides still call for bettering relationships but with this latest development which russia described as d.c. ignoring international laws it's unclear what the future will hold moscow did however add today that russia reserves the right to react. to good reporting that will former u.s. diplomats we spoke to believe that the plan to the consulate would be pointless. what are people going to do in your embassadors apartments or in the consulate and sent francisco to look for illegal recipes for abortion and of course you're going
to have to respond you're going to have to go into our crossing live in st petersburg looking for well perhaps too many copies of dr zhivago at the embassy a library this happens that happens usually at a lower level this time however it perhaps is more serious because it seems to be no. contest between mr putin and mr trump there's not going to be anything left of interest to find quite frankly if there ever was anything other than confidential diplomatic materials which they're supposed to have there but the thing generally tends to be very tough finely tuned and balanced so that not too much offense is given because frankly things are already far too tense between the two countries already so there has to be great care taken when making gestures like this and to me again that means that anyone who's actually planning on raiding diplomatic premises in san francisco has lost their mind. a
black smoke was seen on friday poor thing from a chimney. and also from a russian diplomatic property in washington d.c. which immediately provoked intense speculation on social media while the san francisco fire department issued to special statement and the sizing there was no fire and that everything was like a. the
is night to. night. but the joy. and the i mean there are among dozens of orphans the shelter where art say has been trying to reunite children with any family members back what accounts they have sent this report from iraq. we don't yet know deja and mohammed's full stories but whatever they've been through the word tragic likely doesn't do it justice the kids refused to speak they were in absolute shock they were found by the iraqi military and they decided to take them to a new orphanage in baghdad believed to be cousins and believed to be from chechnya
but the kids themselves whatever they've been through must have been horrendous we have rarely seen kids in a state of shock is as bad as this but there are only two among dozens perhaps hundreds of children here in the row in iraq who are suspected to be orphans the children of isis aligned parents and i've gotta say that they're not safe here not safe at all isis spilled a lot of blood they caused a lot of suffering and there are people who would see these children come to harm this incredibly important to get these children out of here to their biological relatives outside have been happy endings earlier we found five children from russia five children in the baghdad orphanage and see health tracked down their parents i visited the republic of dagestan where we found the grandfather and grandmother of two girls two little girls one four one three and we managed to
reunite them. i've it's uplifting to know that in the ashes of this terrible to. terrible war amidst all the suffering and all the anguish there is still room for hope for joy for relatives who never thought they'd see each other again for them to reunite and we will continue looking for these lost children and for family members to reunite them with their families abroad and at least let their relatives know that they're alive. and well the u.s.
led coalition against islamic state has confirmed another sixty one civilian deaths are likely to have been caused by its air and artillery strikes in iraq and syria in the month of july the coalition completed the assessment of thirty seven reports resulting in sixty one unintentional civilian deaths the coalition assesses that it is more likely than not at least six hundred and eighty five civilians have been unintentionally killed by coalition strikes since the start of operation inherent resolve. meanwhile active military operations either back talk carried out by the us continue in both countries pew monetary organizations been raising the alarm over the impact on innocent lives but america's defense secretary believes locals do understand the reasons they are fighting their. we are the good guys and munitions people on a battlefield know the difference. i
saw with my own eyes three houses destroyed and their strike isis fighters first went there and run away then the jets bombed where they were seventeen civilians were killed but they would go on the roofs of people's houses and start shooting they wouldn't let people live it's later jets would bomb the houses it would go to the civilians still inside. that's what. we ran from the shelling from the coalition we left the people from islamic state a lot of second what we were directly targeted by the coalition it was very clear that there were no insurgents in the area there were children playing in the streets and we were carrying water from a tap house and civilian homes. blown doesn't have the this happened in downtown and the wrong a lot i saw was slaughtering people there as many were killed and houses were destroyed burkey like it i'm of shelling targets civilians hit civilians four story
houses full of. all over the neighborhood but certainly many have been killed and one was my cousin he died in russia in an airstrike the u.n. estimates that an average of twenty seven people are being killed in iraq every day while the situation in the syrian city of mention there is of particular concern to the u.n. thousand civilians are still trapped between eyesores cruelty and intense coalition strikes author nicholas davies who's written extensively on the invasion of iraq suggests that the number of civilian deaths there and in neighboring syria are much higher than the pentagon claims. what is coming from the coalition are not in fact estimates of total civilian casualties what they are is a very limited number of individual incidents that have been reported and so therefore the u.s. so authorities have had to address them and conduct some sort of investigation and
this is this is very very limited this is the way the u.s. has conducted warfare through our kids so called war on terror and it is relied on the media to accept these completely absurd. numbers that it puts out as a serious estimate of the numbers of civilians being killed this is you know this is absurd. you know the news today a light aircraft has crashed during display east of moscow killing two people. player. who had been carrying out a demonstration flight marking the seventieth anniversary of the aircraft's prototype taking to the sky as the plane you can see lost control during a maneuver and plunged into the ground exploding into
a fireball. craft still in use in countries around the world according to one witness the pilot diverted the plane away from the crowd at the last moment two of the a much bigger to. be the pilot going to the last moment during the maneuver he sacrificed his life to save the heroic point. britain has the most is the mystic stream missed in the u. according to a shocking new claim i would have a look at that story plus of the stick in a company. called the future we go into. the world.
and you get the old old. old according to josh. was selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battle. for new socks for the tell you the gossip the tabloids are files please. tell me you on the cool enough to buy their product. all the hawks that we along with all the walking.
hello again now the u.k. is home to more islamist extremists and any other e.u. country that's according to the box counted terror coordinator he also warned that the future terror attacks that future terror attacks in europe are inevitable and see chocolate has been looking at why britain tops the list. i was. both i was right was. the. recurring terrorist attacks in europe and the u.k. have become an unnerving fixture for europe's major cities as it turns out britain is at the top of the leaderboard when it comes to the number of extremists here there is many as twenty five thousand fanatics in britain more than any country in
europe that's according to the use anti-terrorist chief three thousand are considered a direct threat by m i five and five hundred under constant surveillance to compare friends with six terrorist attacks in the last two years is said to have seventeen thousand radicals spain the most recent victim of a major terror attack in europe just over five thousand so why is britain europe sixty missed capital where the fight to burn the supposing that in the highest number of jihadi some twenty five thousand does surprise me a bit because i would have expected france or proportion of belgium to. number given particular the alienation of the muslim communities in both those countries but i know one i'm not surprised that young muslims or point you in the teeth from her society not screwing of research the impact of what britain itself has done and we should remember britain has been next the united states the main program for satanists in the various wars we have seen around the middle east the thirty five deaths caused by terrorist attacks in britain this year in westminster manchester
and london bridge were carried out by perpetrators on the radar of the security services yet despite that awareness those terrorist attacks were to avoided and more are expected to happen. we are going to suffer more attacks the group's propaganda no longer calls so much for people to travel to the caliph it but to launch attacks in their places of origin or of residence even on a small scale with homemade weapons across europe while some perpetrators were known to the authorities others appeared to be leading ordinary lives and were even described as good guys this raises the question of just how many so-called good guys are totally off the radar or are currently in the process of being radicalized twenty five thousand people the security services can monitor that number of people every twenty four hours some of those attacks we've seen have been wolf of tanks it's very difficult if an individual or even to sneak a small number of people plan something that was just simply wanted to get
a hold of a vehicle get a hold of naives it's very difficult to pick that up so if the security services can't guarantee the safety of citizens who can the u.s. extended a european travel alert for americans this week making it clear that europe and britain are not the safest places to go and r.t. london well we spoke to the former head of britain's counter-terrorism security office about this and he thinks it is impossible to monitor such a large number of extremists certainly you know with carter numbers anywhere there are not going to be you're not police officers to keep watch on the mall but certainly twenty to thirty thousand people of interest in the security services that's one thing of course that boils down to probably about two to three thousand people who are really concerned and the police and security services are going to what it's no surprise that spain's been attacked they've got the same problems as everywhere else and of course there are suspects that are in
a month's society. that this is very difficult to police we're going to see a lot of terrorist attacks worldwide over the next twelve months and that's just the way it is. unless we can increase our intelligence the u.s. are pretty good at intelligence and it's only cherry. then all of us are going to suffer from terrorists that's not. just three weeks to go before germany heads to the polls the authorities there are looking at potential threats to the democratic process and it's of little surprise that russia once again finds itself in the spotlight peter oliver has the story comfortably ahead in the polls but this election campaign hasn't been a walk in the park for a glimmer of hope. that the nation started. flying the kids i'm sure you know i know.
i'm glad merkel remains around fifteen points ahead in the polls but that hasn't stopped the security officials from looking for a bogeyman in this election we believe russia is capable of starting dissent from asian campaigns in connection with the elections to the bundestag yes we heard about the u.s. election we heard about the french election now it's germany's turn is claims are being made that russia is out to influence the vote but this isn't the first time that we've heard these type of comments from homs the old musson. dienst isn't about the american intelligence services are convinced that most likely russian intelligence services are behind the attack we have no evidence of course but it is obvious that a similar scenario was possible in germany to. and he's not the only one banging that particular drum but. we have seen the alleged influence in the us elections the french elections as well as clear evidence to suggest that these attacks came
from russia. there's a crucial hole in claims that russia is attempting to influence the outcome of this year's election in fact we heard the head of germany's interior security service talk about it just a few seconds ago that is there's no evidence no evidence that hacks took place in the past or that there's the intention to carry out hacks in the future in fact the german government has had to come out and admit this. i don't have any information that these kinds of food can be proved and they have no knowledge of them. germany has been the victim of high profile cyber attack in the past back in twenty fifteen the bundestag systems were the victim of a cyber attack and the finger of blame for that one remains pointed at russia russia was initially blamed for the telecom hack at the end of last year and that has nearly a million people offline across germany in fact though it was the work of
a twenty nine year old british man who was doing it at the order of a liberian company in exchange for cash russian president vladimir putin was put on the spot about meddling in elections during the g twenty and we have such an unusual is that we did not interfere in the u.s. elections so why would we create any problems here we have good relations with germany it's our largest trade and economic partner in europe. looks almost nailed to be returned as the chancellor of germany but almost half of germans say they still don't know who they're going to vote for so the next couple of weeks could well prove to be crucial and being able to patrol yourself as the defend against foreign meddling could well be a vote. come september the twenty fourth piece for all of. us media a changing in the coverage of the far left and to fire in the wake of its recent
violent clashes with far right organizations and members of the far left are using violence to take your mask off because you have a history of beating people and hiding behind that mask in their midst was a sometimes very violent group of protesters that call themselves they were up to no good i can tell you they were simply here looking for a fight but it does suggest a shift in how groups like the reviewed in the american media violent and dangerous just a short time ago they were heroic fight is the made the unrest in charlottesville back then during right the rally and the n.r.c. pieties car into a crowd of leftwing counter protest is one in its initial statement from condemned ballance and bigotry on many sides we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred bigotry and violence on many shots on many it's
been going on for a long time in our country this was not many sounds this is one sided it is a white supremacist and therefore are people who go and they try to push back on these guys you very intentionally chose to be ambiguous off by mr president what you will announce for member wearing a mask conceal their identity did tell us the change in how the movement is covered in the us media is intentional. well i think the cause of what is in the people who who populate and she says just resistance to the past has declined day and they get it inch symington ratings and to. start a school and to make sure the sea don't remove the comfort of their personal worst because when they lose their money and of course if it happens suddenly when things money there's all this problem. before we go to news from syria because russian
forces have destroyed a convoy of islamic state military hardware near the syrian city of theater saw it came as terrorists were trying to get armored vehicles and their munitions into the syrian city according to russia's ministry of defense in a series of raids i saw tanks trucks carrying weapons and ammunition depos were also destroyed meanwhile syrian government troops supported by the russian air force a continuing to use their operation to liberate theaters or from terrorist see which so that brings up today from am or from in about half an hour don't forget that you can keep across all the stories to on our r.t. and. i.
we're going to be taken into the afterlife that's a lot of people from the future are now arriving in the present. is able to pay for is very into the president using but he doesn't talk about it much because he's already considered to be quite a strange man but you know that's the truth. saloon the dubrovnik and venues are fixed travel destinations so it must be nice to live or is it. going. to resist disrupt the city's economic and social life in them a little bit before this on the scene. with. us.
