americans do the same we are apparently better than food let's see some people you've never heard of love redacted tonight my president of the world bank so kate was really pretty seriously send us an e-mail. the headlines on r.t.e. international a european think tank publishers a list of thousands of guests among them senator bernie sanders and president donald trump calling them quote useful purpose and a controversial report on this channel's policy. is poised to trigger article one fifty five and suspend catalonia is autonomy tensions in the country deep in. winter approaches human rights organizations warned that conditions of greek refugee camps could lead to more deaths and it's off for a five year old recently died of cold and a lack of medical assistance. the
latest worldwide news headlines live from moscow from the entire team here at r.t. international welcome to your headlines. a damning new report from a think tank called the european values just taken aim at this channel and thousands of people who have appeared as guests on our network the institute which receives funding from the us as well as a number of other western governments described them all as useful idiots. and i see a truck and i join my colleague mule half me to discuss this report it's a bit of a surprise for you of the r t bashing continues now in this particular report the issues that artie's guests are having really a dig at themselves this is a report by a think tank based in the czech republic called european values reporters called
the kremlin's platform for useful idiots in the west an overview of artes editorial strategy and evidence of impact now what this report does is that neatly compile a list of basically all of our t.'s guess because it features thousand. of people and it's not just you know a round of list not only are there seven categories in this report dividing our guests into us politicians and political figures british politicians european and other international politicians writers journalists academics and so on so seven categories and if that wasn't enough it also indicates the number of times each guest appeared on r t and links to some of the most relevant episodes it's clear that this particular think tank really worked hard at watching r t here in the u.k. in the states and all around the world he doesn't really mince words when it comes to our team gets not only is the report dubbed useful idiots but it also calls the guests naive and oblivious to our tease intentions so certainly something that is
not being too nice to people who have chosen to come and express their opinion on our network and here is why the report decided to really look into all this the purpose of this list is to identify individuals who either underwent a political agenda or indeed explicit support of it and instead names and credibility to see. and proxy agents of the kremlin is pretty clear we need to start. hello my name is neil and work for. what. all we need to be ashamed about a missing one the two things what have i done what have you done what have we done wrong well apart from looking at all of our guests of course this wouldn't be a proper think tank report if we didn't actually try to get our t. itself it does say that the goal is to look at the history agenda of evidence of impacts of the channel that they describe as quote pushing program one agenda or
under the guise of free speech and alternative journalism now not only does this report claim to be debunking certain what it calls myths about the channel such as being a reliable news source saying that it's not harmful. and also goes into key points such as saying that archie's whole goal is to denigrate the west and our t. is rooted in the denial of truth we can say that some of the sponsors behind this piece is mostly private donors but as well as open society which is obviously a george soros foundation the european parliament the u.s. embassy in the czech republic and we do know that the author has been doing some work with the atlantic council which of course is known for certain anti russia hype so really no surprises there we'll have to wait and see what kind of reactions we see from all of those thousands of people who have been coming onto our channel to express their views on t.v. program going on the ground was given special attention in this report and we'll.
see what he thought of the bunch of useful idiots. amazing that reports like this are actually presumably being read by politicians and hopefully you know our guests who still continue to appear but as we get our guests the guests that they mentioned in the delineate in this report i mean does she really think and do politicians here and in the united states have learned or are going to think that a young is very factors and the former first minister scott alexander the former mayor of london that they're just idiots they useful idiots of course they're not in this incredibly insulting i mean there is no. consistency here and it is at the moment we're joking about it a little but of course there is a serious side the british foreign secretary did this week of democratically accountable politicians in britain that he should decide which networks are democratically elected politicians should be allowed should be appearing on that
precedent if he apparently is doing its job according to the regulator here in britain but not according to politicians that clearly do not want certain views being expressed and given the oxygen of publicity to the british public show you some of the other names you might be surprised to see on this list of useful idiots for example senator john mccain a vocal critic of russia listed among the politicians who have appeared here on our t.v. in the celebrity section for instance our film director rob reiner he's actually now part of an organization called the committee to investigate russia other politicians on the list include u.s. senator and former presidential candidate bernie sanders as well as the current american president bono trump in fact or even the former first lady michelle obama got a mention as well now according to the report all of these people appeared on a program on this network called politicking with larry david the problem is the
famous american comedian has never had a program on r.t. politicking has always been heard. by veteran journalist larry king but that wasn't the only mistake though a think tank says it took guests names from show descriptions of our website which apparently bed to more confusion take boris johnson for instance and claims he appeared on artie's news thing comedy show but let's show you his her parents so that's always someone with their finger on the right side of the international affairs. boris welcome. all we go and get a chance to fight the spanish before america and russia kill us so. if you saw would you prove to. be. proportion as for genuine guests of actually did appear on our channel we are some of them what they thought about the way they were being described in this report.
development is somehow trash it gets more and more aggressive across europe the political debates and one of these games they are playing is they are destroying the reputation of politicians they don't like i don't think that it's fair to say that we are simply here is russian stooges i am not anti russian but sometimes i'm quite critical of russia over syria and over the detention of political prisoners like you and others. you know of course everybody has their agendas but i think he has certainly not tried to constrain my expression or the expression of many other people i know work with a network we speak our mind and we're critical of the west when it's appropriate and we're critical of russia when it's appropriate. the reality is there is a dissident voice in the u.k. the only very rarely gets any airtime in the mainstream media. is the only place
that has been providing a regular platform for what used to be dissident voices in the u.k. but and now much more mainstream voices that perhaps though there are some just i have hard to leave the past behind it was about seventy years ago sort of seeing the start of america's so-called anti soviet or anti russian which aren't. chairman j. parnell thomas of new jersey all funds an inquiry into possible communist penetration of the hollywood film industry the committee is seeking to determine if red party members have reached the screen with the first of propaganda.
but it was assumed. to lead on the cover of the jackal. which is always phone to the front of anyone who dares to expose individuals coming the same to get off an evil. look at that it's a different and higher tax and not very different take on what a lot of our futures are paying for a great t.v. man in europe plotting what i do and see.
if a person defends the activities of communist nations well consistently attacking the domestic and foreign policy of the united states she may be a problem and i will say if she objects they are now carrying out the sire's of the ambitions of that. i think. a bloodless coup engineered by russia with the best the traitorous indifference of the republican party and donald john trump and the military apparatus of this country is about to be handed over to god or beholden to starving russia and that. spain is planning to initiate the process of triggering article one fifty five on saturday in a move to suspend regional autonomy within a quarter of our reports. the constitutional crisis in spain continues and the situation here and the region of council lonia remains to be quite uncertain now we
expect cabinet meeting to be held later today in madrid to work out measures how to seize this crisis and the spanish government has given council and leaders up until thursday to back away from proclaiming independence or to be ready to face the possibility of a direct rule coming from a treat and now the spanish government has announced that it is ready to trigger article one fifty five of the country's constitution to suspend council on autonomy . the a clear and precise response in spanish or catalan is yes or no and we didn't get that so the requirement that supposed an initial step to begin this stablish procedure in article one hundred fifty five of the constitution has been motion. article one fifty five has only two short paragraphs in the in nine hundred seventy eight constitution of the country and it might be applied if they regional
government does not comply with the obligations of the constitution now this move should also be approved by the majority of the spanish senate and this article has never been used before and the country's history now old this follows the recent statement made by the council and leader who once again confirmed the suspension of the region's independence and we've seen a lot of protests happening here across the region of council and in this capital city of bar salon at this past week now tens of thousands of people took to the streets of the city on tuesday after a court ordered of the detention of two castle and separatist leaders further house collating the situation and here on plus the consul luna located right and the heart of barcelona we expect to see another mass protest to take place later this saturday. meanwhile the crisis is a call of a over a thousand and the prices have moved their headquarters from the region ten percent
of companies have frozen their investments and eleven percent of open bank accounts the region on the other hand some pro independence activists in catalonia are protesting madrid's actions by withdrawing the cash from spanish banks and we heard from some of them. came here because pro independence organizations have called on us to take collective action to withdraw cash from banks i think is a fantastic idea because in amana it allows us to show the power and motivation we have as well as give us strength without harming anyone with care they will flow to lucian our change has not began with civil disobedience is one part is that we have to get to this point to be heard as they deal thing would be for the government to be available to hear these demands from society so we wouldn't have to get to this point. two point five million of us a catamounts who runs independence so we withdrew
a little money and the banks left without assets. they will have to react to move see that they shouldn't tend their backs on us both spain and europe. it's all too international your wealth news continues and about. this is i believe the worst crisis in modern american history is the crisis of unfettered capitalism undermining the entire population of the country and we've seen the arab spring we've seen other hot spots in the world and ice and i feel the heat build it. seems wrong. but i. just don't call. me. yet to shape
out this day become active. and engaged because betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart when you choose to look for common ground . thank you joining us so far here are three international russia's foreign minister has stressed the importance of the iran nuclear deal so together for off said international security would be threatened if the u.s. scrapped the agreement and the north korea crisis could worsen but she didn't stop it is clear that the failure of the g c p a way iran deal one of the five plus one members especially one of its most active
members essentially the leader of the group would be an alarming signal to the architecture of international security including the settlement of the nuclear issue on the korean peninsula if you want to negotiate with kim jong un and your goal is to avoid war and try to be able to have a diplomatic resolution the worst thing you can do is first threaten to destroy his country and the united nations and secondly screw around with the deal that has already been made because the message is don't make a deal with the united states they won't keep their word. last week the u.s. president announced he would be certify the deal means the u.s. congress now has sixty days to decide whether it wants to reimpose sanctions against iran or agree on new legislation relating to the court. said he wants out of this nuclear agreement even though it's why. has not been violating the. agreed. on the nuclear deal.
but the reason they have. the spirit. to this their agreement. back in twenty fifteen by the so-called p five plus one group consisting of the us china germany france and iran that followed nine years of talks and was hailed as a major breakthrough former head of the u.n. nuclear watchdog spoke with us. he told us it's important to work to preserve this deal. great achievement. by the p five in the security council and we have seen that before. the syrian chemical weapons. and there's some.
so it's very important to preserve. these these. and be. in the. future of. human rights activists and n.g.o.s are urging the greek to improve conditions at the refugee camps in the country as winter. approaches there's growing concern that ill prepared asylum seekers may be left to face freezing temperatures all on their own just last week a five year old girl died from cold and a lack of medical support at the morea refugee camp on the greek island of last boss just hours before her death her parents were reportedly denied extra blankets now like other refugee camps in greece morea is notorious for its condition more than fifteen hundred people including children and pregnant women living there many
without ultimately any source of heating now in winter temperatures can drop well below zero and dozens of refugees have died in the last few years as a result of the e.u. has pledged to give more than a billion euros to greece by twenty twenty to help it cope with the ongoing crisis over a million refugees have reached greece it's now basically a main entry point into europe and this ongoing since twenty fifteen as the influx threatens to overstretch the country's resources the e.u. is response is being called into question. economic could be a challenge to governments with things we simply can't cope with the influx and the haven't got the administrative resources to organize proper relief for refugees or build proper camps the official a current of the you has the whole having not been signed off by the court
awarded to the e.u. zone account and for the last twenty three years we know that the e.u. is very little idea about how its money is spent and that's always been true disputed before the crisis in the doing the crisis in the e.u. doesn't know how to manage its money. and you know a lot of the money goes into the blue to be able to see the governments of greece and italy i'm afraid. for the. credibility. police in california to deploy drones in the skies above los angeles initiative has raised concerns of a privacy and safety hollywood's recently be making a big deal about the dangers of misuse.
after years of heated debate the police commissioner of los angeles voted three to one in favor of the one year long drone program however the vote certainly caused a bit of a star among residents in los angeles. to various protests in a show of discontent over the decision the police department union president assured the public that the new technology will be used as a tool to protect both police officers and residents all the police department chief. only swat officers will be allowed to use the drones this during a certain specific operations or in a high risk situations the technology can be applied in search and rescue
activities or when looking for suspects and the spying coordinator for los angeles ahamed karna raised his concerns over the initiative. we have seen about eighty percent of the time over the last fifty years that swat has been used for low level drug offenses or no knock warrant entries and basically we've seen people's homes being destroyed lives being destroyed children as young as three month old being killed smoke bombs in a lot of things and then of course surveillance surveillance remains a huge issue i mean the los angeles police department is besides being one of the most militarized police department has a massive massive architecture of human and electronic intelligence gathering so the drones fit into the must much larger apparatus and i think when we when we are looking at technology when we're looking at the uses of technology we have to really take a pause and see if it is this technology going to be enhancing the human condition . this is for the benefit of health and well being of the human condition or of this technology is going to be used to terrorize to to stew stark to trey's to
monitor and negatively impact. we're getting a breaking news just in here at the international police in munich say that a man has stabbed several people at an underground station not far from the city center we understand the suspect is still believed to be on the run or thought he is urging local residents to stay indoors when we get the updates here nasi international with this breaking news story from munich you will get them to for the meantime though here on the program we are back in a short while. but will these gaming anymore let you say inches are breaking but the fall to the damaging both sides to its limits to reality no damaging always equal needs damaging the russian economy and the russian the financial system and i know a lot of people who are looking for creative ways to get better results.
about your sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself in taking your last wrong turn. your attitude up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each person. but then my feeling started to change you talked about more like it was again still some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never again like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind it's consumed with death this one quite different to speak to now because there are no other takers. claimed that
mainstream media has met its make. its. i'm after it out there we're going on the ground today is the nineteenth national congress of the communist party of china arguable superpower of the twenty first century continues in the great hall of the people in beijing coming up on the show could form a. british colony somali and single deadliest terrorist attack in the country's history have been avoided we also got trustee at mogadishu university of russia and china should be to blame but not being nato nation policy in east africa and we go to yemen to speak to unicef about teresa mayes continuing war in yemen now contending with the worst cholera outbreak in recorded history was.
again maybe the honorable lady is another member who should take up the multiple interventions by britain's i was going to speak at this week's questioning of about the old u.k. prime minister theresa may all the similar coming of a days going underground but first in a thousand years this week may be remembered not for the u.s. u.k. linked al qaeda mogadishu atrocity nor the assassination of panama papers journalist have to get it in malta but something detected from two hundred million years ago good morning ladies and gentlemen we have for the first time seen both gravitational waves and light from the collision of two dense dead stars guess as predicted by einstein scientists have confounded critics of last year's observations to reveal the gravitational waves exist gravity being the weakest of physics four fundamental forces and yet the one that means we go around the sun along with others the lie go a laser interferometer gravitational wave observatory detected the merging of two stars to cause waves about present in the universe and ordeal was released to
broadcast as all of the so called sound of neutron stars merging sound of that took hundreds of millions of years to reach us through space and which signify the creation of perhaps the gold in your local jewelry shop. one of the reasons we can hear that splash is that after soviet scientists worked on the subject and in the usa began gravity wave research funded by the u.s. military we don't of course know whether research into using gravity wave weapons by the pentagon is being carried out right now but we do know that research here in britain is now being focused on new weapons while austerity hits hard at home in the n.h.s. housing and for the most vulnerable hundreds of millions of dollars are to go into research into new british ways to kill people u.k. dragonfire and the d d s t o u k industry programme to demonstrate the capability of
a laser directed energy weapon system for the self protection of land maritime and at last. it's funded by innovation funding the question of course will be how this new u.k. laser weapon will be used right now that means would britain use it with its saudi allies to target civilians ravaged by cholera in yemen and would it have been used to support british backed isis and al qaeda linked militants trying to overthrow the government of syria or even al shabaab in somalia which has been accused this week of killing hundreds in mogadishu well joining me now from minnesota in the usa is trustee of mogadishu university an elected member of the african academy of sciences for has a smile summit our welcome to the program before he gets to one of the worst atrocities arguably since the colonial period just explain why countries like britain and italy sort of power over somalia well britain saw the power of somalia because it was just so you could be located country or territory there due to the opening of the ways canal in eight hundred sixty nine and because of.
