police lieutenant in the u.s. has been fired off the dot com video shows some assuring a woman during a traffic stop that police only killed black people. watching r.t. international with me rose on a low could live from moscow thank you for joining us first story american security says is a carrying out searches of russia's diplomatic properties in the u.s. on orders from the state department the russian foreign ministry has slammed the move as a violation of international law and for its part the u.s. state department claims the inspections are needed to quote secure and protect facilities and to guarantee to the russian side has failed casted the buildings well the foreign ministry has persevered over the operation with the ministry spokeswoman and locking it. a true triumph of democracy in one would air from the
russian consulate in san francisco security agents using a ladder to inspect the ceiling inside the building searches and being conducted not only on the premises over the diplomatic side but also in the apartment of staff members and their families and in another video a security official is seen searching the apartments with some residents still inside. of. the. bomb. in compliance with washington's demand the sound francisco town stopped functioning
that's now been confirmed by russia's consul there meanwhile the u.s. state department is also leading a search operation in russia's now closed trade mission in washington d.c. style for block access in that building starting from two pm local time the head of the russian trade mission alexander stark naked told journalists that he considers the search of the compounds as a takeover in violation of international law. which we are witnessing an example of vandalism in international relations it's another takeover of russian corporate c.e.o. brode we haven't been expect to so she wanted gas and we don't come down to stupid am local time the u.s. doesn't think we have to going to community anymore minutes before the closure of all t's ruptly video agency master film inside the premises as you can see more or less everything had already been cleared out leaving only empty shelves and corridors the diplomatic staff were given very short notice to leave the site only thirty six hours. well the state department says the searches our legal
giving the diplomatic community was lost following the closure of the vienna convention states that immunity remains in place intil diplomatic staff leave the country. vienna convention on diplomatic relations article twenty two point one the premises of the mission shall be inviolable the agents of the receiving states may not enter them except with the consent of the head of the mission. article thirty nine point two when the functions of a person enjoying privileges and immunities have come to an end such privileges and immunities shall normally cease at the moment when he leaves the country and we spoke to jack rasmussen he's professor personally political economy at st mary's college as well as former m i five intelligence officer and ema sean to get their take on the events. but it's rather on fresh dented for the u.s. officials to enter at this particular point i think probably the truck attention
what was done by russia is closer to them to the facts and sounds like a real problem acacia knowing on their own there's been a transfer ten between the two countries and diplomatically there seems to be escalating and now this is probably designed to provoke a similar response by russia and keep the diplomatic war knowing the question is is there some connection here with the maulers investigation of trump's relationships with russia or for the election are they looking for something that maybe might be related that's a possibility to work partially more now but certainly as a provocation i think international is down very clearly the one hundred sixty one fianna convention of to class relations says that any diplomatic affiliated premises in a foreign country. and incursion in that territory is their source is an attack on the country this is hosting that. diplomatic mission so this is breach
of international or there is some sort of. parade of power by raising this america russia has its america because they're going to pursue this new. the reclusive. anyone else a casus to be an enemy of. the u.k. is home to more islamist extremists than any of the e.u. country that's according to the blocs counter-terror coordinator he also warned the future terror attacks in europe oh inevitable i was to say i was to see a choke and a husband looking at why for tops the list was. both back was the father it was.
a 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 france 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 mr capital well if i could bring 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 point you in the teeth from her society and that's growing of research the impact of what britain itself has done and we should remember britain has been next the united states the main program in 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 into 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 one will for tanks it's very difficult if an individual or even to sneeze small number of people planned something that was just simply wanted to get a hold of a vehicle getting 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 us 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. we spoke to the former head of britain's counter-terrorism security office he backs the idea that it's impossible to monitor such a large number of extremists certainly you know with carter numbers and where there are not going to be or not police officers to keep watch on them all 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 or three thousand people who are really concerned and the police and security services i mean 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 the months that a society reconnect this is very difficult some police were going to say a lot of terrorist attacks won't fly over the next twelve months and that's just the way it is and unless we can increase our intelligence and the u.s. off pretty good intelligence and it's over sharing then then all of us are going to suffer from so sometimes. dash cam footage has a mud showing a police lieutenant in the u.s. telling a woman during a traffic stop the police only kill black people he made a remark after she said she was too scared to reach for her fight. use your own head in your lab rat or i can get out of my hand.
if you're not why. remember we're like like yeah we'll black people right. away. the lieutenant was subsequently fired with his beliefs criticizing his actions also calling all the rebel man who had known for years i feel that no matter what kind to try to take those comments in the statements were inexcusable and inappropriate. for a number of years and i'm always perceived to be an honorable man and he made a mistake surveys conducted by media outlets show that last year the number of people in the us killed by the police was over a thousand and since the baby of this year the figure is already over six hundred fifty of the different racial demographics the share of african-americans among those killed is not
a majority according to the mapping police violence survey says the beginning of this year fewer of them thirty percent of those killed were black however in general they are three times more likely to be killed by police in the us than americans as a whole class back in twenty fifteen thirty percent of black americans killed were armed we discussed the issue with ronald hampton a retired d.c. metro police chief he told us the fire lieutenant's remark was racist. believe me it probably has come up in the twenty eight years that he's been on the police force cobb county georgia has been known to harbor racism as well as activities by the klu klux klan stores right next to decay of county where lanny isn't and there have been issues down there before so this guy what has happened to this guy and the mistake is that now and this was caught on camera and then videoed not only revealed but we saw there and heard the sound too so now he can't get around to use this race this term as well as it awful to me is the indication of
his behavior over the years so i don't necessarily believe the person who said that they've known and mean he's an honorable person i don't believe. in allergies this hour the russian foreign ministry has released new video of s. strikes destroying eisel almost vehicles need dare as saw in syria the strikes were conducted as part of a joint operation carried out by the russian and syrian army's itself mccullough's to liberate the city of terrorists or from myself since the beginning of august the syrian army has made significant gains.
arizona has been completely surrounded by so for three years now and only its heinie potion the city is okupe by the syrian army almost one hundred thousand people are trapped by us oh. come on that bit i laid and even a bit as isis terrorists raided our house my thirteen year old cousin was staying with us i hid her in a water tank so that the terrorist didn't take her as a slave it was obvious that it's not just the situation in there is or is catastrophic terrorist from iraq executes civilians in the streets leave bodies lying there for up to five days i secretly drove my sons out of the city otherwise
isis militants would recruit them by force inject psychotropic substances and later used in the suicide bombings. might be the most important choke point right now in the syrian conflict because of its geographical location. regionally russia has been making incredible advances with airstrikes with the syrian armed forces on the ground and isis being basically paged on both sides of a sort of a greater regional area that they had more or less strategic control over. a year a year and a half ago eradication of isis but not just isis also. is
absolutely going to stabilize the middle east as a whole syria can be seen as a stabilizing force an important player in the middle east. the city council in los angeles california has voted fourteen to one in favor of renaming a u.s. federal holiday well used to be called columbus day will now be known as indigenous peoples day jaclyn view the explains. the time of heated discussion over america's historical figures and their often controversial past los angeles has become the most recent city to vote overwhelmingly in favor of renaming columbus day to indigenous peoples day now the opposition to honoring christopher columbus whose brill treatment of native americans is often overlooked coincides nicely with the recent fight against symbols of the confederacy new. democratic economics energy poor african american and. that there is the christopher columbus statue that was vandalized someone took an axe to christopher columbus is that
there is no red paint all over the statue removing columbus his name from the national holiday is meant to be a way to make amends and acknowledge america's bloody past but is the relabeling of a day really the best way to help america's indigenous people it's not going to affect people who do anything that's going to change their situation unfortunately the better immediately freedom day might be a good thing. or a cloudy day we can get if we can get something for them in terms of a date that's perfect and then that way we can do like i said go ahead and start talking about the deeper issues at hand and then we can work towards getting getting more and more from people should be other centers and care more about other people than they do that more people care about themselves these days than they do others or people focus more so than just change the name incomes for native americans tend to be relatively low and unemployment high in two thousand and fifteen poverty rates were the highest among any groups in america so perhaps efforts would be better spent on trying to improve the everyday trials and
tribulations of the native americans instead and something important to note is that in l.a. many who were trying to keep columbus day as the holiday offered the idea of having a separate day and naming that indigenous people say but the idea was shot down leaving one wondering how much does renaming a day really and help the indigenous people of america and also why is this getting a second wind now perhaps has something to do with the anti confederate phenomenon . washed. meanwhile clashes have been seen between bottom left group anti far and far right organizations with the us media now changing the tone of their coverage. members of the far left are using violence 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 they call themselves and they were up to no good i can tell you they were simply here looking for a fight it does seem to suggest a shift in how greats like and viewed in the american media now portrayed as
violent and dangerous just a short time ago they were heroic falling to the unrest in charlottesville back then joining a right we rally in. his car into a crowd of leftwing count protesters killing one and his initial statement donald trump said he condemned violence and bigotry no matter the sil's we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred bigotry and violence on many shots on many sides. it's been going on for a long time in our country this was not many sides this is one side it is why it's the premises and before our people go in they try to push back on these guys very intentionally chose to be ambiguous by mr programmer. and member wearing a mask to conceal her identity told us the change in how the movements covered in the us media is intentional well i think the cause of what is in the people
who populate and she says this resistance to the past it has declined day and they get it in which to maintain ratings and to continue to project the status pull in to make sure the seat don't remove the comfort of their viewers because when they lose that they lose money and of course in the captain's son he will lose money there's always problems. with just three weeks to go before germany has to the polls the authorities and looking at potential threats to the democratic process and not for the first time russia has found itself in the spotlight feature of a has the story comfortably ahead in the polls but this election campaign has been a walk in the park for a blue merkel eight years she says she's. not going to start. by the kids and she knows they know i know.
i'm going to call 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 dissin from asian campaigns in connection with the elections to the bundestag yes we heard about the us election we heard about the french election now it's june east 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 hans the old musson. the instant of 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 because. 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 i'm glad merkel 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. that us way is nearly create a constituent assembly is demanding
a probe into the country's opposition over selegiline lobbying for u.s. sanctions against president migiro as government the government claims that everyone who supported the economic sanctions against the country are quote traitors well we spoke exclusively to the assembly president she says the double standards in the situation poorly. posed the question imagine that the opposition party in any european country see france called for the usa or her example spain or germany to intervene militarily in the attempt to overthrow the government in office or likewise imagine to you as opposition to the administration of donald trump the leader of the empire asked for military intervention into the domestic affairs of the country any country of the world this was received as a treasonous crime the country has been rocked by a wave of pro and anti-government protests this year the opposition has branded me a dictator meanwhile with donald trump publicly keeping all options including
military intervention on the table caracas is training its army reservists just in case. the head of it in silence constituent assembly again told us trump is ignoring the jurors off of cooperation. even if it at the is the next one that has become for us a kind of an obsession in a way and it's not the first time the same happened during bush's tenure and back then the usa got no where it was the same during obama's time and they got nowhere again and now suddenly president donald trump has not paid attention to president went to rose randomness to call it by a diplomatic means such corporation would respect the sovereignty of both countries remember you can get your news on the move by the lead in the aussie out for free and i'm back from here almost studio in just thirty minutes time.
what politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so what you want to express. yourself want. to be like. this is what. people. interested is it but why. should. we started working on the question of the euro before the euro was launched and we had such concerns about what you were preparing to do you all
a documentary the nation was at risk of default and under pressure of the european institutions the berlusconi government had just resigned in favor of mario monti a technician who would have avoided the forthcoming catastrophe it was the first time in a decade that i came back to the land where i was born here used a brilliant mind. to advance a moral vision. a vision of a society. where men and women are free. free to choose italy had been downgraded by the rating agencies and they'd lost credibility in the eyes of international markets there was everywhere a climate of fear and uncertainty about the future. and three minutes shown is that when government attempts to substitute its own judgments. for the judgments of free people. the results are usually disastrous. the italian
case with its debt out of control could have even caused a domino effect on the whole european economy not only dose of the pigs. what was going on in europe and. contrary to the free market invisible hand. which improves the lives of people the government's invisible foot. trampled on people's hopes and destroy surgery. said that's the word spread and austerity had entered into everyday speech but no one knew more times when since the economic crisis would tell you the take to the streets across spain to join the general strike that stretching throughout your unemployment still european politicians will.
