defining moment of the twentieth century how did it change russia. a proxy war between two of the biggest powers in the middle east iran and saudi arabia has escalated directly affecting other countries in the region. hundreds of thousands have taken to the streets of barcelona are outraged that madrid form a castle and leaders who will find the region's independence that liberation. also this hour a highly anticipated formal meeting between donald trump and to me a putin fails to materialize. on the sidelines of the apec summit and agreed to cooperate on syria. and the u.s. justice department demands that america register as a foreign agent by monday if it fails to comply the channels could be frozen.
just gone six am here in the russian capital moscow thanks for joining us on our teens and national review well welcome to the program i'm daniel. now the geopolitical rivalry between two of the middle east main powers saudi arabia and iran has been destabilizing other regional players yemen and lebanon. in the latest developments saudi led air strikes targeted the defense ministry in the yemeni capital it was back in march twenty fifteen that saudi arabia first began its incursion into given by launching an air campaign against who the rebels who are backed by iran yemeni civilians have also been affected by the latest saudi led bombing here's what they told us is the shuttle r.t.r. but. then the second rocket hit my house was destroyed i'm just an ordinary person
on the bus driver i'm not a military commander not an agent of the state why did they do that to me my house didn't hold a single bullet did they fear that i had weapons so i want them to watch this i have nothing this is just a house and i'm a poor person that i would feel if you knew my had been lacking were injured our houses were destroyed this is the result of aggression how how's this and there were affected by the strike. riyadh has intensified its bombardment of yemen in a response to a missile fired towards the saudi capital a week ago by two thousand fighters saudi arabia was quick to blame it on iran saying toronto directly supports the who thinks later a senior u.s. air force official claimed the ballistics missile had been made in iran. markings on the business. that's been demonstrated and there are pictures there that to me that connects the dots to iran in terms of who supply. missiles and that
capability has some i am going to and we do not even have the ability to transfer missiles to yemen. and they've managed to increase the missiles range. because more background on that tension artie's morag as they have takes a look at those tensions between two of the biggest players in the middle east. recently benny a days seems to go by without saudi arabia making headlines and it almost always boils down to it's enemy iran it is a game of chess that spans an entire region on every front in every country the saudis see iran's evil influence. the huth the rebels in yemen who saudi arabia has been bombing for many years fire a rocket riyadh that the saudis could only describe as
a rainy and aggression the saudis also ready to throw that allies under the bus to create an excuse to denigrate iran. q the lebanese prime minister holding a successful meeting with the iranians and then going to saudi arabia and out of the blue without warning declaring his resignation while lou inching into a tirade about evil raney an influence plunging the region into chaos and destruction. were of iranian prison to plant discord and destruction of. interfering through our countries in lebanon syria. yemen well i would like to say it was the iran and its followers that they would be losers in there. you lose a poor and gain an opening then there's the blockade of cattle.
a trade embargo seva ties ultimatums and warnings punishment some say for cata daring to deal with the rain ians and then there's syria the saudi sponsored rebellion is dying. their jihad just allies are losing an ass ad is winning and while syria may have unexpectedly checkmated riyadh here the saudis are saying that the game causes and miti and hatred between people and even when played on a judge against his will read has a really himself has just given a set he's free to leave saudi arabia whenever he wants. and a hundred men look how look i'm free in thirty arabia if i wanted to leave tomorrow i would leave tomorrow that all these people need to know that i did resign i know it's not an ordinary way of resigning but any prime minister i know that but i did
it because i wanted to send them into shock and positive shock so lebanese people would realise that our country is in danger i mean while saudi arabia and its allies kuwait the united arab emirates and bahrain have all of their citizens to leave lebanon immediately we spoke to analysts for their take on the current situation between saudi arabia and iran riyadh is rolling out an entirely new plan now to create chaos in the region where a recount and lebanon are not risk which if this is a fluke is an easy shot it's a low hanging fruit there is a great momentum right now as i'm speaking this week in saudi arabia to try and create some sort of military strategy against iran to destabilize around or or any of iran's proxies in the region saudi arabia is isolated in the ne in the emerging new we believe they've lost in syria because of the feel of the dash project
they've lost in iraq i was just back from baghdad and the talk in baghdad is about not bach and i was stationed but about iraqi national unity they lost again with their blockade against karkare they are losing the war on yemen which is horrifying we then saw thousands of civilian casualties and supported by the u.s. congress for that matter and using american weapons and u.k. weapons and now they're trying to change their narrative their brain in the run they are trying to ratchet up a confrontation involving lebanon which is caught in the crossfire and it still is the same old story the saudi arabia against the run and countries seen the middle east southeast asia going to be caught in the crossfire. on saturday night a massive crowd turned out in barcelona demanding the. of catalonia is jailed former leaders the demonstration was held in catalonia as national day attracted almost a million people i be
. we are here to have a free country at risk and with a push to more years he and all of the catalan government are in our hearts we need to do this i wanted all of the demonstrations the as i long to my grandsons to have a life that we didn't have if i were here to defend our politics defend those currently in prison and to defame democracy and here to find our human rights if i was if you chose flower culture for their flower children they feared. the spanish prime minister is now in barcelona he's attended a presentation of his party's candidates for the upcoming regional election going to end what he calls separatists have a whole hosting the gathering was full of people supporting spanish integrity and waving both national and past a lot of flags. earlier this week pro independence protests spark clashes with police as activists tried to block railway stations in the cities of barcelona and
your own a i i i. i came off for a general strike much of the region to hold again in protest over the jailing of the region's former leaders madrid accuses them of rebellion and sedition and as an old catalonia that correlation of independence well several members of the deposed leadership fled to belgium where they're now waiting to see if they'll be deported back to local council on mass travel to brussels to offer support but were confronted by a spanish unity rally we spoke to a spokeswoman for the european partnership for independence she joined us from one of the pro independence protests in the castle on capitol. hill. thank you thank you governor aggressive force. back on an institution and obviously.
you. know. how do you break it's very good. for the spine of the state. to make me believe that they are that once again when they are the ones bringing nevada and i know. in an illegitimate way. they. do for no. national charities. that they promote this out in so many nations under universal rights. and. that was is the shuttle r.t. america has been given until monday to register as a foreign agent in the united states on the orders of the u.s. justice department if america fails to do so its bank accounts could be frozen the order was made under legislation adopted more than seventy years ago before the
second world war in fact a counter nazi propaganda machine a caution ever looks at the reaction to the move. we are a news channel but at the moment we are in fact the news the mounting pressure on r t as this week coleman eats it and an ultimatum sent to us by the u.s. justice department r.t. america has been required to register as a foreign agent and the united states by monday with been left with no other choice but to comply but artie's adventure into the channel is being forced into conditions and wish cannot war. just imagine if you work in the media and have to sign everything you do with foreign agent or produced by a foreign agent how does it feel for any media outlet to disclose its personal data its contract to have to declare any interviews that you do to ministries and institutions this can be called part of the job these conditions are aimed at
destroying us as mass media. at the moment russian lawmakers are drafting tit for tat measures targeting american finance media in russia while there is a list of candidates that might be had by those and among them are c.n.n. and voice of america radio liberty and its korean time television channel but the crackdown on r.t. and the us poses some very uncomfortable questions. soonish that of those who are doing this in the us have always been proud of being the world's number one democrats and freedom of speech has always been the main value it here to buy them there's no democracy without freedom of speech and attack on our media in the us is make no mistake an attack on freedom of speech itself the. pressure has been mounting on r.t. ever since we were accused of somehow making us voters too strong over hillary last
year but can one channel really will that much power or is this just in a town to stifle alternative. us president of trump better relations with russia would be key to solving world crises like syria north korea he was speaking a day after the apec summit in vietnam we have to get to work to solve syria to solve north korea to solve ukraine to solve terrorism and i feel that having russia in a friendly partially as opposed to always fighting with them is an asset to the world and an asset to our country not a liability getting along with other nations is a good thing not a bad thing believe me. a formal meeting between the russian and u.s. presidents had been highly anticipated although it never actually happened apparently due to show problems nevertheless the two leaders did briefly catch up on the summit sidelines and released a joint statement on the situation in syria let's take
a look at some more details what was actually in that state when they confirm their terminations to defeat islamic state at the president's also agreed there can be no military solution to the syrian conflict or the final political settlement should be found through the geneva talks format and importantly stressed syria is still a sovereign country however putin trumps common views on those issues immediately sparked a backlash take a look at some of those critics say boss john brennan claimed trump was intimidated by the russian president and former intelligence chief james clapper dubbed the friendless naive and even a threat to america think it's very naive and again for a period was to this country to make an assumption that russia is going to be with. the of the world or the united states of mind or following his meeting with putin trump took to twitter to address his critics underscoring that russia's help is necessary in resolving many of the world's conflicts when will all
the haters in fools out there realize that having a good relationship with russia is a good thing not a bad thing they're always playing politics bad for our country i want to solve north korea syria ukraine terrorism and russia can greatly help. well now michael patrick flanagan president from consulting and former congressman thinks partisan politics lies at the root of the attacks on the us president think the agenda is that brennan particularly is a d.n.c. guy not a professional intelligence guy he's a d.n.c. guy was put in the job and they he has a desire to see the democratic national committee succeed and if trump succeeds they can't it's a zero sum game for them and so i when these things come up they talk about oh trump is wrong trump is naive trump is bad on these things and they use and they burnish their credentials to try and make their point there they are finding it
recently at least that they have fewer and fewer people standing next to them going yeah they're right those these two are pretty much alone now saying these sorts of things because we cannot go on with our minute anime's around the globe as these two apparently want us to have and having a permanent enemy of the russians is insane and i don't think trump is interested in doing that as a deal maker he wants to wants to proceed successfully in the world wants the world to proceed successfully and look at his goals it's not territorial ambition it's not making money for the clinton foundation it's solving the crises in syria in ukraine in north korea and elsewhere and doing it with not only with russian cooperation. now hundreds of people have been killed and many more injured as a result of a vonage earthquake that hit the border region between iran and iraq on sunday iranian media are reporting the death toll of at least one hundred forty eight hundred sixty injured at the powerful tremor of seven point three magnitude was centered in eastern iraq there are reports of severe structural damage in that area
i'll bring you up to date information as soon as it comes in. on the last leg of his asian tour donald trump landed in the philippines on sunday he didn't get the warmest of welcomes though on the capital streets take a look. i. was on hundreds of protesters the send it on the u.s. embassy in manila to protest against the visit they burned u.s. flags and shouted trump slogans police used water cannon to push the crowd back. allegations of colossal bribery and fraud having gulf the u.s. navy that's according to prosecutors in the so-called fat leonard case is now revealed the true extent of the scandal let's take a closer look at the initial inquiry took more than four years ago twenty eight personnel including two admirals were indicted back then it's transpired now though
over four hundred navy star far under investigation including more than sixty admirals and scores of other officers all of them are suspected of sharing secret information in return for bribes such as alcohol and prostitutes their identities of the majority of people implicated are being held back to avoid jeopardizing the investigation the release of such information would likely reveal sensitive details about the breadth and scope of the criminal investigation and pending cases. these revelations are being described as the worst corruption scandal in u.s. navy history yet some are surprised that handing over classified information to a foreigner is only being treated as fraud caleb open takes a closer look. did they do well allegedly they were seduced by leonard francis a.k.a. fat leonard he offered them booze parties luxury hotels and cash in exchange for information about where u.s.
navy ships were going in the pacific ocean he did this in order to earn contracts now fat leonard aka leonard francis is in a san diego jail so giving away military information launched an inquiry into corruption now these navy officers admitted to giving away ship schedules and they pleaded guilty to bribery but leaking and giving up classified government information under u.s. law as it called bribery it's called espionage why is the espionage act not being applied to corrupt navy officers christian saucer took some photos with his cell phone in a classified area of a u.s. nuclear submarine nobody paid him anything and he didn't leak them to anyone he simply lost his cell phone well he ended up getting sentenced to a year in prison now his mother thinks her son got a raw deal in two thousand and nine there was no cell phone ban on submarines at that time technology was new and didn't catch up maybe hadn't caught up yet and i really have no doubt in my mind that it was a twenty two year old guy that wanted to make it out of where he worked yeah we
were ready took pictures and so forth were allowed now when it comes to whistleblowers who reveal u.s. forces killing civilians or the n.s.a.'s massive surveillance it doesn't take long for them to be charged with espionage. the monthly. i started working at the agency where you were at the time were.
looks like photographers without malintent and whistleblowers get hit with stiff penalties but if you're a good ole boy in the u.s. navy brass and you trade military secrets for sex and cash well it looks like the stiff penalties just don't apply kaleb happen are seeing new york. to hundreds of moral conflict will fans have clashed with police in brussels that's following that country's qualification for next year's world cup in russia. my my god some russians turn violent when run police fired water cannons at the crowds in an attempt to bring them under control police claim twenty two officers were injured while a number of cars were torched in the clashes. let's take

that's where the bolsheviks and vladimir lenin come in. it must be explained to the masses that the soviet to work his deputies is the only possible form of revolutionary government place power in the hands of the proletariat and the poor a structure of the peasantry the bolsheviks promises essentially boiled down to this power to the soviets peace to nations lands of peasants and bread to the hungry it took them just two days to come to power on october twenty fourth and twenty fifth they swiftly seized. post offices key row way station in the state bank the port and of the strategic locations across the city at a quarter to ten pm a blank shop from cruise a rural signalling the stocks of the storming of the winter palace. by two am on the twenty sixth of october revolutionaries occupied and arrested the provisional
