the visa. delay deny hope you die. here's what people have been saying about redacted the night with us and it's full on awesome the only show i go out of my way to launch you know what it is that really packs a punch at least yampa is the john oliver of hearty americans do the same we are apparently better than boobs. i see people you've never heard of love redacted tonight my president of the world bank so hates you because we're. seriously send us an e-mail. the syrian army liberates the city of formerly islamic states largest stronghold in the east of the country also at this hour the landmark nuclear deal with iran is
a risk as president from world leaders. is breaching the spirit of the agreement. this is a dangerous signal president of united states has many problems not this one. big elections this weekend in austria as an immigration party gain strength there the spotlight is on the rise of the right in europe. just after three pm and mexico city nine pm in lisbon of eleven at night here in moscow this saturday welcome to our two international my names you know neil we begin with breaking news from syria our government troops have liberated the city of dean from islamic state that's according to the russian defense ministry with the details in the studio earlier nichiren. my dean is one of the last remaining
isolate strongholds so the liberation of the city is likely to come as a major blow to this terrorist group fighting a military source the sun the news agency has with its soldiers and now driving the remaining jarvis out of the city what is underway on removing land mines and booby traps left behind by the militants fighting lies in the province situated just south of the provincial capital and this area has witnessed some of the fierce fierce fighting between islamic state and syrian forces as government troops battle to push the islamist out syrian army troops successfully reached the outskirts of al my scene early this month effectively trapping isis in this city. and of course russian forces have been actively supporting syrian troops too with a russian naval task force launching cruise missile strikes one terrorist positions in al my scene while dozens of militants have been killed in a series of russian air strikes across the province in recent weeks and all this
comes just one day off the russian general staff announced that islamic state now controls less than eight percent of syria you see major successes of the syrian troops but. less than eighty percent of syrian territory. controlled the rear of the russian view or simply will continue its operations against. terrorists with the principles that are completely eliminated the liberation of. that islamic states presence in syria has shrunk further leaving the group wounded and most crucially more vulnerable perhaps the perfect time for government troops to intensify its anti eisel campaign. yes so big developments let's get further into it with jamal wakim jamal is professor of history and international relations at the lebanese university in beirut you very welcome. the overall picture. is a dirt to dream time holy could it take to liberate the remaining eighty percent of
syrian territory for myself do you think. i believe that i salute the collapse. to liberate the remaining eight percent is a matter of time but i believe at the same time the big challenge for the syrian army and their allies is mainly the american interference in eastern syria because they are backing goodish troops to control that area and call for an autonomous region there in order to force the united states to have an area off influence in northeastern syria the liberation front my head in. is a very important achievement for a dissident me because it's the strengthens it's a grip on one key city that lives on the line of communication that links syria to
iraq on one hand they're not at the same time it strengthens the position of the syrian army endangers owed and at the same time it gives the syrian army better access to northeastern syria in order to obstruct the at times of the americans and their allies to have like an autonomous region and northeast in syria at the time when the consul forces the kurdish forces have taken over and they have let isis forces withdraw from the city with the with the aim of with the objective of heading eastward in order to block the syrian army from achieving make your successes towards linking with just a logistics of what we saw today may again was liberated relatively quickly in comparison i suppose would dare resort nearby several parts of which are still
controlled what had been the main differences in the two operations. well first of all and then is much smaller simply than daters or. at the same time the plan of isis was to hold on to data stored in order to obstruct the. syrian army to a. strong position on the freight this in order to cross the north through to the north area of syria so that's why they focused on their design and they gave less importance to this was one factor another factor was that the syrian army was pressing and that is not on at the same time was launching. another attack on my idea and i believe that this was the main reason and of course we need
to mention the support of the russian air force and the russian military experts and of course iranian forces fighting alongside the syrian army just another aspect to get your thoughts on in another nearby city iraq where the u.s. backed anti isilon peroration is ongoing the russian military say the coalition is using the wrong tactics as they're trying to destroy the city's water supplies which could of course impact greatly on civilians and your thoughts on that aspect . well the technique used by the united states forces whether in syria or in iraq is to cause as much damage as possible for it to make the cities that get liberated from isis hard to. construct and at the same time. they want to turn the civilians as and not. the issue of the civilians and their
needs as a means to obstruct the further advances of the syrian army especially. the united states is losing ground both in syria and iraq and it wants to hold on to whatever it could in order to enter into negotiations later on so that i believe that this was the case similar to what happened in the western part of mosul for example where the american forces bombarded the city and destroyed up to eighty percent of the western quarter of all or most of thank you very much jamal wakim professor of history and international ations after lebanese university in brit thank you. living on the historic nuclear agreement with iran is in jeopardy now after president trump announced he won't certify tehran's compliance with the deal his decision comes despite the global nuclear watchdog as well as u.s.
and european officials saying iran is keeping its side of the accord. we will not continue down a path whose predictable conclusion is more violence more terror and the very real threat of iran's nuclear breakout importantly iran is not living up to the spirit of the deal but the move means the u.s. congress now has sixty days to decide whether to reimpose sanctions against iran as well as come up with new legislation to try and i'm in the nuclear deal but if those negotiations fail trumps the deal will be terminated which risks undermining the front child balance the nuclear deal secured here's why the american president might be considering ripping up the agreement. four reasons why trump needs to pick a fight with iran. after all his policy flip flops he needs to stand firm on something iran will do just to save face threat posed by iran whose chief
exports are violence bloodshed and chaos all nations of its most work together to isolate. the. washington's also getting worried by iran's growing influence in the region iran has been allowed to run wild throughout the middle east for the last eight years. but let's not forget money iran the evil enemy cups is so a lot more weapons than the compliant part not just investments in the united states in our military. communities very happy for the thank you. and the cherry on top rushing iran means pleasing it close friend israel common do injure. others will face from iran for decades iran has fueled the fire is threatening the region and causing so much of by alliance with its soldiers.
i want you to know how much we appreciate. the. an american policy on iran which you enunciated so clearly it's very hard to say what his what his goal is his is he trying to go to iran into taking some actually really the pressure on trial is coming from is his biggest sponsor is financial sponsors and fundraisers and they are absolutely all virtually ready for a war with iran. well the iranian president responded to donald trump's claims by saying it's not all up to any single leader to make decisions about a global agreement. this is an international multilateral deal that has been ready to fight by the un security council it is a u.n. document is it possible for
a president to unilaterally decide to fight this important international deal apparently he's not in the know it is not a document between iran and the us so he can't treat it the way he likes. it took nine years of tough negotiations before the deal was finally reached in twenty fifteen all of this standoff over iran's nuclear activities stretched by more than a decade and was widely regarded as one of the world's most urgent crises and it wasn't only the us that painstakingly negotiated the terms it was the combined efforts of russia china britain france and germany to the u.s. secretary of state has been trying to rally european allies over trumps this but so far they have mostly reacted angrily. our allies and friends of europe by the region are going to be very supportive president of united states us many posts not this one it is not a bilateral agreement it does not belong to any single country and it is not
up to any single country to terminate it we cannot afford as international community as europe for sure to dismantle and nuclear agreement that is working and delivering especially now this is a difficult and in our view dangerous signal that the agreement with iran has shown for the first time that it's possible to prevent all through negotiations the destruction of this agreement would mean that others around the world no longer rely on such treaties it's therefore a danger that goes far beyond iran and we in europe germany france the u.k. and the e.u. we stand by this agreement with iran and we want to preserve the agreement i think it will will further estrange our relations with our european allies it will draw them closer together and i think actually closer to the russians and the chinese just things stand now the iranians have the support of the russians the chinese and all of our european allies it's washington this isolated. ukrainian nationalists
have been marking seventy five years since the creation of the ukrainian nationalist insurgent army in the capital kiev. the army was fine did during the second world war in one thousand nine hundred eighty one collaborated with nazi germany during the conflict against the soviet union in one thousand nine hundred three even surge and ukrainian forces adopted a policy of mustering and expelling the polish population from france which poland later declared is genocide it's also believed the army was responsible for the killing of ukrainian troops. when you sell to the bricks they were. dropping bombs brings peace to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles. that you saw for the tell you the gossip the tabloids but i'll.
quarter of an hour into the program welcome back russia is concerned about the expansion of america's. missile system stating it's pushing the world into a new arms race the russian defense ministry put forward its fears on a joint briefing with china at the united nations according to data compiled by moscow there are sixty u.s. contre missiles in europe and around two hundred fifty in the asia pacific region the total number though is expected to grow to a thaw and in the next five years. part of russia's concern is over the so-called prompt global strike system the russian defense ministry sais that the u.s. is closely working on the project it would not require nuclear weapons but would be just those destructive expanding more on all want to to talk. if you didn't think
the world was scary enough this might just push you over the edge the russian defense ministry says that washington is one step closer to developing a prompt global strike system the pentagon has no moved a step closer to the development of approach global strike system such systems are designed to achieve the same results as nuclear weapons so let's break down the jargon problem global strike or p.t.s. is a system that can carry out a person guided conventional air strike anywhere in the world within an hour conventional air strike implies dropping projectile such as barrels or steel pipes from high altitudes and high speeds and anything release from the height of over one hundred kilometers instantly turns into a deadly bomb thanks to the gained momentum and explosion equal the power of a nuclear one except no fallout they even coined a term for kinetic bombardment and here's the kicker kinetic bombardment is not prohibited by either the outer space treaty or the anti-ballistic missile treaty if that's not worrying enough wait till you see the report penned by
a congress think tank earlier this year it's packed with possible drawbacks to the system saying that it could in fact prove destabilizing in a crisis for a number of reasons for example the report mentions the possibility of the us as adversaries taking the p.d.s. launch for a nuclear strike which could trigger a nuclear response and of course once one world power obtains a prompt strike system everyone will be racing to be the second pushing the world into a new arms race there are concerns by countries that the probable strike would allow another country to do a strike on another country without using nuclear weapons as a way to take advantage of these new technologies and that's why the you're seeing this arms race either we need a new agreement between countries or we need to figure out a way to ban any kind of weaponization of space that would not be good for world security and again is just causing another cold war type arms race.
austria's right wing is once again in contention for a place in government ahead of sunday's vote poll suggest a strong showing from the immigration freedom party well lots of grouping is currently in second place as you can see here in the news wall these are the latest polls i don't front the centrist people's party now its leader and current foreign minister sebastian curtseys if he becomes chancellor he will end power sharing with the social democrats and then seek a coalition with any other party including perhaps the right wing with which he shares a strong immigration stance now the latest results in austria only adding to concert over the rise of populism at the heart of europe let's take a look at recent examples of the last few months in france the staunch immigration hardliner a nationalist marine le pen was a leading contender in this year's presidential election then last month germany saw a right wing party enter parliament for the first time in nearly sixty years austrian
might be about to follow suit following events for us ortiz policy or. there's a lot of intrigue over whether or not the right wing freedom party will do as well as its sisters elsewhere in europe in france and in germany form of fringe parties making it big on the political scene the us skeptic anti immigrant freedom party is seriously complicates things for the leading center right people's party the v p o v p started to harsh in its agenda to attract voters i'm here to pro freedom party rally the last one before sunday's parliamentary election in which the party is expected to come second many here accuse one of its main rivals of stealing some of its proposals there for nobody is coming into the country without registration without a passport no one should be allowed to enter austria i list will do everything possible to stop illegal immigration so i am asking that social benefits for non austrians be significantly reduced i just will do everything we can to end the
abuse of our social welfare system by immigrant the people's party has always been the pro european party quite conservative and now they're copied to mention those program after freedom party they're now not trying to be like the blue party they're trying to be against foreign. multicultural things that's copy paste partly because of freedom but it was successful and so far it's working well for the people's party with its new young leader sebastian kurtz at the helm presenting himself as a bold reformist and not shying away from bowing the policies of the controversial freedom party it's slated to win sunday's parliamentary election some expose suggests curt's might even approach the freedom party to form a coalition government not least of all because of its fall out with its previous partner the social democrats i don't think that a big coalition the collision between conservatives and social democrats will come
again because no. i think there will be a change people want change people will vote change the european political landscape is shifting with parties that were on the fringes we'll do even more influence policy r.t. . this one of the world's largest events for young people is underway here in russia the nation's capital is welcoming the nineteenth world festival of youth students and we're bringing you all the highlights over the next week. i've seen and you can bet that bit o. . me this too was not an unforgettable do for you kathy days while dyson dowsett want to use songs used if it is in the move of the spirit night you get up mickey d. i do mean it up now and it's no good as.
