because they have been trying. to say what is what awaits in the future they were trying to put fear into our hearts and there's a whole information campaign including elements of pressure and elements of. administrative measures. to be taken against our media's. interest myself i would also like to ask a question now. and it's crazy we have these right i would like to just go straight now to. me and you have talked about a large number of measures on sanctions taken against you personally. and your eyes and your channels. now i held. out a question to you as you are well represented in other networks as well but you have just spoken about the activities of the u.s.
and devote your life in the international space and i thought question whether. you as is. very deliberate. taking this this measure and imposing this section's against you compared to other media. no of course not you have. something just given you presented to us the very recent sanctions and recent steps because if i had to list them we wouldn't have enough time or other media have no sanctions imposed on them because before that or year a year ago there were basically apart from reputation and other kinds of measures there were no sanctions imposed on us before that yes we had some bad stuff written about but they never went through the. that all the media in the
us humans are basically in the same situation that they were a year ago they continue to work on the same. laws but. right now we would like to believe that. the us respect their own values their own principle principles with within their country but you know they are trying to put sanctions on us which now i would also like to point out that this is part this is the part of the domestic drama or what i would call taking place inside the country inside the us the first thing is they're trying to do is to remove russia's soft power from the u.s. because they can see i would like to be here now the other important aspect is. the domestic as you struggle. inside the
us perhaps you as a harbor would be able to. speak in more detail about that because you are presented to of the of the foreign ministry but as for our experts and for our with vision we see that this is part of their own domestic political struggle they need to they want to try to show that mr trump is an illegitimate president that he was elected thanks to the hundreds of millions of dollars dollars. used by the russian media and they have succeeded in that because a lot of the population in the u.s. believes that russia has been trying to somehow interfere in the u.s. elections now the third aspect that we hear a lot about is. this the struggle between the cable and that. it works inside the u.s.
because they for some years several years now c.n.n. and other channels have been losing the ratings their ratings have been falling and they. have to take into account that. they see that they don't need another player on the markets because they don't want to lose viewers ship which is why they are engaged in this fight against russia and this is why they are trying to include as much of the population as possible into this rago because none of this is happening against any other channel and i the american channel it's on the happening against us. we've just been listening in to the russian senate hearing where first we had maria zahar of the russian spokesperson a foreign ministry spokesperson speaking she spoke about how while the u.s. tries to instill their policies of freedom of speech in other countries they
violate those very policies and their own country by trying to enforce measures against russian media in the country and of course second we had margarita simonyan the editor in chief of our channel r.t.e. speaking about how inside the u.s. there seems to be drama inside struggle taking place and we see that them she. tried to explain that in the us they are trying to show that trump was it legitimately elected president and placing the blame on that on us here and russia also she mentioned that perhaps the reason there are so many sanctions against russian channels is that they simply don't want competition for viewership. google has removed r.t. from its advertising package in the u.s. without any notice as well arty's deputy editor in chief has slammed the move as absolutely unacceptable. r t has been google's premium partner since twenty ten and accredited to an official status of the most watched t.v. news network in you tube it is absolutely unacceptable that while there were no
notification so veni policy change was sent to r.t.c. says internal info appears to have been leaked to the us media by google this speaks to the unprecedented political pressure increasingly applied to all our t. partners and relationships in a concerted effort to push our channel out of the u.s. market entirely and by any means possible the russian foreign ministry described the campaign against media here as a witch hunt it started back in january with a us intelligence report into alleged russian meddling in the american election the report devoted seven pages just to our channel and it supposed influence on the two thousand and sixteen election accusing our channel of serving as a kremlin propaganda tool however no concrete evidence was given in the report in september the us justice department contacted r.t. contacted r.t. america service supplier demanding it register as a foreign agent in the us a law that was drafted to prevent the spread of world war two propaganda however
registering would compromise the personal data of employees which the russian foreign ministry spokesperson explained was a safety issue for staff the fact that r.t. is no longer included in google's preferred u.s. advertising list won't concern the channel too much however r.t. is currently the world's biggest news network on you tube last month our channel smashed the five billion views mark on the website. i. knew. we value most i. i'll be back with more news after a short break. america
has a colony it's called puerto rico and they overcharge them for stuff and now there's a disaster there leave them to rot and it's a failure of capitalism it's a failure of politics in washington it's a failure that we saw coming for decades and it's a failure coming to the shores of america. with this manufactured incentive to stick to the public will. when the right wing closest to protect themselves. with the flaming. lips and be the one percent. we can all middle of the room six. million new.
job or hard sell you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battle but don't. produce offspring to tell you that what we gossip and probably worth while for the most important news today. off of advertising tell you on the cool enough to buy their product. all the hawks that we along the border will want. live live live
. welcome back following massive strikes against the spanish government that have charted over half a million people in catalonia now anti independence activists have gathered in barcelona this is all of course after last week's controversial referendum which saw violence broke out across the region anastasio churkin a has been following the events for us in barcelona and we can see a couple hundred people was gathered here because this. crowd you see here and independence proudly like they are quite loud and really are symbolic terms of passing seemingly right here and of course was you can see the street here was people are quite fascinated about keeping spain intact they have been speaking out
against the independence they've been talking about how they want the rule of law to prevail how they're i disagree with the way that we've been conducting was arrested were friends of the crowds out of course that i was actually criticized on the day of the referendum on october first all of these people say here now just this one of the ones who are coming out to say they want to leave they were talks about the embassy was what they say and you get your shit i think what they should do is respect the lure in the constitution as all of europe and the european union have honest the only thing we are asking is that the it be the constitution and the lunatic which is what you defend what counts you are you people you know people's most i think is so nice they will not give us anything respond if citizens festival we want a united spain this independent side air space to my eyes is just to rope us so far to catch monaco they said they would hold a session on potential independence process as soon as this monday so certainly
this critical situation seems likely to continue given of this stance of the cat's leadership to to continue. pursue the results of the referendum where ninety percent of the electorate did vote to leave spain how exactly this is going to unravel means to be seen could you months also said that he does want some mediation to be involved between barcelona and madrid and whether or not that happens and what kind of mediation is going to be and whether or not is actually going to bear fruit is what we're going to be watching now. earlier the general strikes over seven hundred thousand people take part in it as people waved flags and chanted pro independent slogans along the pack streets catalonia now has several options regarding its future one would be opening dialogue with the e.u. and spanish authorities to mediate the crisis that's been soured by madrid's attempts to disrupt the referendum however the calland president says spain hasn't responded positively to the idea of talks. there's a number of what we have never received any positive response from the state to any
of the proposals of mediation that we have of the table at the moment. we have go back to the russian senate hearing where the foreign ministry spokesperson maria harbor is speaking live let's listen in to used against foreign journalists on the basis of political views or any other. statuses. i would like to remind you that we have no law those in any censorship in our country are also with us me i would like to. say the the article fifty five and as mark and. twenty three of these laws. can be. they can be restrictive measures taken against foreign journalists imposed or in the foreign journalists of those countries that have their own laws
restricting the to it is over our media. or. we can see clearly that there have been restrictions taking restrictive punitive measures taken against russian media and the territory of the us that is why we can have an imposed teach for tat measures mirroring measures. and this is. exactly what the money on has been talking about today about their demands to provide all the information on the gas that comes to the network about the labels that needs to be need that will have to be put on every video on the. continent. and all of these can be taken back to the us. at them when you feel fortunate when. there is nothing that would prevent us
from having a comparative analysis all the laws and maybe making some corrections but this is up to the lawmakers and i would most also like to point out. compared to the american on this is us the american legal system that protects and. makes its. laws secrets without showing them to anyone and just using them secretly we have. russian law available to everyone you know such that the. this is something that hasn't been that we didn't come up with to date has existed in the night and ninety's. i have heard quite
a lot today. when someone has been speaking. that they were trying to say that this is a criminal offense we were again there listening in to a russian senate hearing where maria zahar the russian foreign ministry spokeswoman was speaking and she was talking about how here in russia there are no laws on censorship but of course there is a specific regulation here in russia that if a certain country has regulations restrictions on media in their country russia can answer in the same vein and have restrictions on journalists from those country here as well implying that it is possible and it's possible for russia to impose tit for tat measures in the case that in the us were strictures were placed on russian media it could happen here as well. now back to day's top one of today's top headlines the f.b.i. is being sued by
a victim of islamic state inspired attack in two thousand and fifteen at a controversial cartoon drawing contest in texas now the lawsuit alleges that the bureau may have been complicit in the terrorist incident by not acting on early warning signs and girlfriends of santiago has more. the f.b.i. is under fire accused of encouraging a terror attack the accusation comes from a security guard who is taking his case to court bruce joiner was wounded in two thousand and fifteen in an iceland speier terrorist attack targeting the draw mohammad contest in garland texas. both of them had assault rifles came around the back of a car and started shooting. now
garland could have been a massive tragedy but mr joyner along with other guards and the police managed to stop the terrorists now he wants to get to the bottom of this quite shocking revelation bruce has been a loyal law enforcement officer for most of his life and only seeks the food truth as the f.b.i.'s role in his near death all made that the two thousand and fifteen we did not understand why our own government would not tell us even privately what really happened that day so what does he base his accusations on well for starters the f.b.i. allegedly helped the terrorists hope to gain weapons by lifting a restriction during a background check it's also believed the agent even texted the terrorists inciting them well to have a good time. and finally the f.b.i. is accuse the following the terrorists to the scene of the attack not up rehan them
but only to drive away and let them get on with it i don't like to think that they let it occur but it is shocking to me that are now under cover agent sees fellows jumping out of a car and he drives on. according to research by an american university a shocking fifty eight percent of people charged with links to eisele had contact with either an undercover u.s. agent or informant helping the terrorists do who knows what it's very troubling to know that not only was the f.b.i. aware of this attack but likely perhaps complicit in carrying it out and even enticing the two terrorists to carry out the attack in garland texas some of the facts are indicating that they had an undercover agent that was trying to get in with isis or if the attack had been carried out successfully and people died that was likely that this undercover agent and his superiors his supervisors in the f.b.i. felt that this would prompt him up to high ranks within isis he didn't have a legal duty to prevent it but it certainly is negligence at the very least
remember james comey the former f.b.i. chief while he didn't mention any of this during the twenty fifteen garland press briefing and when asked whether counterterrorism investigators are looking for a needle in a haystack he said the whole country is a haystack and the needles are invisible apparently there was at least one needle that was visible that he chose not to mention your process and jago r.t. . a polish member of the european parliament has launched a scathing attack on the new over its migrant policies during a debate he accuse the bloc of ideologically bulldozing member states and repeating mistakes more graphic policy is to suckle too complex a problem to be imposed by the european political and ideological bluenose. has to be a consensus of all member states otherwise we will be back in the situation where
the big guys do what they want they could get away with that has to be. the mandatory quota scheme has been the focus of much of the criticism each member state was required to take in a specific number of asylum seekers after the migrant crisis all began back in two thousand and fifteen but the quotas were never fully accepted by everyone in the union the so-called redistribution system was decided by a majority vote but the sudden influx of migrants led to several countries appealing against the quotas poland and hungary have been the most vocal critics refusing to take in any refugees whatsoever the crisis also proved a challenge even for the biggest and wealthiest countries like france and germany are two spoke to the hungary and foreign minister for his take on the blocs common migration policies. it's obvious that the migratory policy of european union was a failure so far you know the. three for the system is
a total bad in st. at least central europeans who are honest about that but you know those western european friends of ours who praised this decision very low and best us very low they have completely devoted to up to up to twenty five percent so basically no one complied with the decision of the of the european commission you know its mother if you pull chrissy is mother of political correctness instead of being honest and straight to the problems this is actually against the european the regulations and the broken laws because that decision takes away the right from the member states to make their decisions on their own data and the retore of their country and when they do not. and that to germany where two suspected members of an infamous nazi death squad have been identified by a jewish human rights organization one of the directors for the rights group claims the men are responsible for some of the nazi is nazi in its worst atrocities during
world war two at the nazi task force took an active role in mass killings among them was the massacre of over thirty three thousand jews in just two days that occurred in bobby are in ukraine shortly after the war ended twenty four of the death squad leaders were charged for crimes against humanity and word of warning you might find the following images distressing. little chin yet i need some glue to get it so. jim. didn't mean to show that it's. just that. we spoke to human rights activists your friends are off who believes criminals should still be prosecuted regardless of their age.
about ten years ago the german judicial authorities changed the prosecution policy viz a viz nazi war criminals now any person who served in a nazi death camp or death camp as a concentration camp with the apparatus for mass annihilation which is either gas chambers or gas fans or served in the eyes that group can be almost automatically convicted. for service based on service alone. for example first of all one of the people denies participating in in any atrocities he says that he was a mechanic but that's irrelevant in other words he was a mechanic working on cars or trucks that took the shooters to the pits to kill the jews so there's no question he's an accessory to murder. punishment for excessively to murder is as i said between five and fifteen years in
prison and obviously when you give a person who's ninety four a five year sentence that's basically a life sentence don't be fooled into seeing frail old people think of people who in the flower of their youth with the height of their physical power they spent all their energy mass murdering innocent men women and children. king solomon of saudi arabia has finally met with the russian president and what's being called historic talks it's the first official visit to russia by the saudi monarch with many considering it a shift in riyadh's foreign policy huge oil deals were on the table at the meeting our correspondent has more. the anthems of saudi arabia and russia have been played at one of kremlin's most spectacular rooms and that means the landmark meeting has happened deals with the largest and the richest gulf kingdom always mean big
numbers on paychecks and. to do just that to put those signatures on the many papers that are expected to be signed and he has told that he is genuinely happy to be in wash up for that but it is no secret that the international geopolitical scene russia and saudi arabia are exactly friends but this only adds. to the story for. economic partnership. is really can do many things together and high ranking officials for this over countries house keys the german was the big numbers that i've been telling you about multibillion dollar contracts are expected to be announced including possibly three billion dollars worth of arms purchases by saudi arabia the gulf kingdom is also planning to spend at least one million dollars on energy projects in russia as part of
a joint fund saudi arabia also wants to invest in gas production in russia and turn moscow wants to build plants in saudi arabia so no wonder the ministers of defense and the minister of energy of russia are present and they're holding talks together with latimer and kremlin but could this be the case of economic interests first political second we will see because i'm sure that the two leaders for them it will be very difficult to avoid the difficult issues the differences that the two countries have when it comes to international politics that another aspect we also have to watch out for here is of course the very very close ties between saudi arabia and the u.s. . we have to remember that president donald trump chose the gulf kingdom as his first destination for his first foreign trip to washington as an lot of our prudent was asked about all that last night but let's face it so this. is always going to
be the united states when it comes to the interests he said always will remain. in the world that is so absolutely constant so moscow could really be looking forward to that shift in saudi arabia and foreign policy and they're trying to make as welcome as possible rochelle when he was driving towards the kremlin he could see welcome billboards and of course he has been able to enjoy the magnificent view of the kremlin from his where it's called and sweet and i'll tell you what the saudi delegation didn't just book a number of sweets for themselves not even the entire hotel but a whole cluster of moscow's most lavish hotels in the heart of russia so there's a bit of a saudi kingdom there right now the meeting is underway but we won't hear from the leaders after the talks the people we will hear from will be the foreign ministers
of russia and saudi arabia we are expecting a press conference and we'll be there for you. i'll be back in just a few minutes with more on today's top stories so do stay with us. in the u.s. a child can choose an army course in school with retired officers as teachers we don't. recruit will says to you if the cadet is interested in going in the military but we don't recruit ourselves. the pentagon is funding a program to boost interest in the military among teenagers your chance to step up to an apollo so that way for a comfortable with yourself and things to yourself you can't go wrong with the military it's a great stepping stone for whatever career you want to do but some veterans are
willing to tell enthusiastic children a little more they ask me call of duty is a very popular first sure video game. it's played now it's because the military like call of duty to turn off call of duty oh yeah well you can't turn off more than a lot of these kids just don't hear. the darker side does the pentagon allow them to be told or does it just need more recruits. in case you're new to the game this is how it works not the economy is built around corporate corporations run washington the washington post media the media the voters elected a businessman to run this country business because. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the us actually just pull on. the only
show i go out of my way to launch you know what it is that really packs a punch oh yeah it is the john oliver of party americans do the same we are apparently better than. the sea people you've never heard of love to the night president of the world bank so very. seriously send us an e-mail. our teens editor in chief says there's unprecedented pressure being put on our channel in the u.s. with a widespread intimidation campaign. following strong support for catlin independence from spain anti independence protesters are now gathering in barcelona complicating catalonia options on its future. multibillion dollar.
