camps this winter after cold weather and a lack of medical help kills a five year old girl. broadcasting live direct from our studios in moscow this is our to international and from thomas certainly glad to have you with us now the crisis in catalonia has taken another dramatic turn after the spanish government said on saturday it would impose direct rule on the region that triggered a wave of protests with almost half a million people turning out on to the streets of barcelona local officials branded madrid's decision as an attack on freedom and a coup as part of the initiative the catalan leadership will be removed from office but we don't know if this measure we're going to implement has a lot to do with the goal of holding an election in catalonia the region will have to hold an election within six months the mind tension is to hold it as soon as we recover. but at the spanish government has carried out the worst attack against
scotland institutions and residents since the order of the military dictator francisco franco. to be integrated it was sponsible act across all bond baseband nonsense had to talk to a coup d'etat tossed a democratically elected government. article one fifty five which allows for the transfer of powers to madrid and the dismissal of those officials alleged to have broken the law is to be passed by the senate within days and while the catalan parliament won't be dissolved it is now stripped of the capacity to elect a new president has been a question of the reports now on the reaction in catalonia. many people that gathered here at the square they were listening to the address that was made by the castle leader and they welcomed it's with applause they were shouting slogans including the bit of that which means freedom so for them it was
a big to address quite a big decision that was made to now we've heard other reactions coming from different cattle and government officials including the had of the catlin parliament that had has denounced madrid's decision to invoke article one fifty five and dismissed the local government now madrid's decision croaked radio wave of outrage and we've seen hundreds tens of thousands of people here in the streets so far salon and now protesting and marching and we managed to talk to some of them loses them we're a bit lost is the first time we found ourselves in such a situation we've heard talk of possible support from durham for example but it seems that the e.u. is not interested as a tool in what's going on here. i think. we need i mean are there other planets not. even common countries day leave they say what they say all the time
the same they repeat the same words and that's on monday and for the other leaders so it's it's it's it's impossible to talk to them reminisce that spanish prime minister met and the crowd of course said that madrid has not revoking catalonians autonomy but it's merely dismissing and removing the local government that led to this crisis but what happened this saturday in the region of council anya mania local authorities call defacto coup de down and a blow to democracy. or a kid has heard from several academics about the constitutional mergence in spain and how it might unfold now. the independent this movement is a very very peaceful movement i need to pass never shown any sign of violence so i don't expect that type of violence the only violence here comes from the spiny states the practice that was organized today because to protest against the fact that they put didn't change their leaders off to
a seat in society are going to use a search out of the center of the sonship yet people are angry but people in catalonia are peaceful people they are not going to use violence at all that i can and sure you. that is the major question here what is the role of the force in the elective democracies in the twenty first century. i think the consensus of the cattle and side is a very strong one if indeed he does remove the government and call the elections it's hard to imagine who is going to participate that most there is forty percent of the president sitting in parliament and catalonia that is that is supporting this move and i can't imagine that the people who are rightfully elected in the september two thousand and fifteen elections go along with a new election after the government that they were elected to form part of is is overthrown by the several of our days and i think president bush among makes
a very compelling fight when he says well if this can be done to us what other things can be done to other people if you're going to sit by and let it happen. moving on the euro skeptic and party has won the czech republic parliamentary elections with almost a third of the vote now the movement is telling the result as a huge success the billionaire head of the party who many compared to donald trump is now said to become prime minister. the group system we've had for so long is what i call. the movement. there is no place for migrants in europe. i don't want to be in the eurozone or the country to be a. greek banks. let's
face it. not in the form of this economy governor. week. some of our political approach is just the real world. right now across the european union nationalist and euro skeptic parties have enjoyed rising support over the past few years in france and the leader of the national front party was the main rival in the country's presidential election in germany last month the f.d.a. not only entered parliament for the first time but it became the third largest party in the border and the freedom party in austria recently came third in elections there now former czech foreign minister. believes europe only has itself to blame. in europe we are out of face. and we
can say euro skeptic forces on the scene so particularly in germany of course in austria this is a very massive victory of euro skeptic forces and maybe in the czech republic mr buckbee and his movement and all belongs to the. two d. group of party is who are against dick caught us with you war or war. does the movement which some of the very strong send european position. under the us where donald trump's predecessors bronc obama and it george w. bush have long had furious disagreements on key policies but now they finally seem
to have found a common target the current us president. george bush is watching that what the banks and financial institutions what i'm up bush went after the obama administration's handling of both iran and isis some seem to believe that we should to go with the terrorists and radicals me and other democrats of wanting to negotiate with terrorists i don't think it's good for the country to have a president undermine a current president. we've seen actually this is the story of a good eight isn't folks don't feel good right now about what they see. and show up and instead of our politics reflecting our ballot politics going back to our communities. there are some signs that the intensity of support for the democracy itself is way because all the microphone is the face
american security and prosperity were directly tied to the success of freedom in the world the world council of america having its act together at times it can seem like the forces pulling a supporter stronger take this seriously than the forces binding us together when we can it is the same old politics of division. human rights organizations one deaths could rise in greek refugee camps this winter more than after a short break through watching our international. have . you.
by then got a session. by then is assessed the long. haul . not instead of. going on more. so it. was revealed to the. injuries among can't connect them to yourself you hold the rope but shows real you know most of the. ball if you move a pupil so simple so this is a. book in. my. own image of nothing. to walk. on long enough something. a little slit my
says yeah he was in the school for the. most part of the a lot of them on how to eat. she does that ounce you don't need to know this and got very. little then i'm a little bit is beefy does this not because of the beat but i mean. look. good. and welcome back to watching r t international a think tank called european values has released a damning report about our team and criticized more than two thousand people who
have appeared on this channel now the institute which receives funding from the us and other western governments brands our guests useful idiots and the list of names is divided into seven different categories including us political figures european and other international politicians as well as writers journalists and academics it indicates the number of times each guest appeared on our t.v. and mentions in the most relevant episodes here's what the authors of the report have to say about it. the purpose of this list is to identify individuals who either due to an awareness of r.t.s. political agenda or indeed explicit support of it lends their names and credibility to a pseudo news network and proxy agents of the kremlin and we asked a number of guests how they feel about being included on the list. development is on how trashy it gets more and more aggressive across europe the
political debates and one of these games they are claiming it 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 hearers 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. i 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 i work with the network we speak our mind and we're critical of the west when it's appropriate i'm a critical russia when it's appropriate. the reality is that is a dissident voice in the u.k. the only very rarely gets any time 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 now much more mainstream voices. and here are some of the names you might be surprised to see on the list of useful idiots senator john mccain a vocal critic of russia's grouped among politicians who have been on our t.v. and robert reiner who is a director he makes an appearance as well he is actually now part of an organization called the committee to investigate russia other politicians on the list include former presidential candidate bernie sanders as well as well the current president donald trump even former first lady michelle obama gets a mention of the report clearly states all these people appeared on a show called politicking with larry david. the problem the famous american comedian has never had a show on r t politicking has always been hosted by veteran journalist larry king and that wasn't the only mistake either the think tank says it took guests names from show descriptions from our website which apparently led to more confusion take boris johnson for instance he claims he was on archie's news thing comedy show but
this was his appearance. so that's always someone with their finger on the right side of the i mean it's a national face it's power to say treat boris johnson. welcome. all week out and get a chance to fight the spanish before america and russia kill us so it would. be easy being. poor. all right for some the uneasiness over russian media operating in the west as a clear historical parallel seventy years ago american so-called anti soviet witch hunt began.

a huge strain on greek resources many question whether the e use response has been good enough. economic could be a challenge to governments with things we simply can't cope with the influx and haven't got the administrative resources talking nice proper relief for refugees a bill proper cabinet the official account of the you has a hole have not been signed off by the call to vote it is the accountability 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 through dispute through before the crisis and during the crisis and 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. put it.
