for establishing. councillor merkel coalition talks over her future. in syria the prospect of a political solution to the almost seven year long conflict with another key regional on syria the resort has. seen the political process in conversation with donald trump. donald trump a full update bastar assad mr putin also told mr trump about the presidents of iran and turkey. it was these three kind astronaut talks and the first launch scale militant somehow involving different
sides like washington. politics and hopefully these talks will help pave the way for. the conflict to come to an end but i think that it looks good on paper but it i'm sure it's going to be very complicated and the weeks and months ahead there's a lot to do and it's not clear if the americans and their allies are going to help this process before or whether they are going to improve and competed. for over twenty years there's been a moratorium on the death penalty in russia the country's most dangerous criminals are sentenced to full life terms instead in prison on this week are. was given unique access to the high security facility known as the black dolphin arguably russia's toughest. in these provincial town at the edge of siberia is a prison but it's no ordinary prison the mere sight of this statue has broken the
most solus butchers the black hole for russia's highest security prison it is here that some of the country's worst maniacs serial killers terrorists and even cannibals i held in this cell a man who raped forty four miners and killed five children aged seven to eleven some of the people in this prison will never be allowed out so we dread for the things that they've done and then the man in a drunken killing frenzy killed six of his friends in this cell a murderer killed eleven people. seven hundred inmates sentenced to life between them they've killed almost four thousand people everything is procedural everything intended to minimize risk from sleeping
schedules to how inmates are in school that bend to the waist and blindfolded so they can't memorize the prisons layout. it may seem excessive humiliating even but do not forget what these people did to be here to that end every cell door has a description of the inmates crimes any sympathy the guards might feel disappears immediately. you ask me if i do it again i thought about it and it would have been better for died with them eagle was just over twenty when he and his father took on a rival gang after killing their enemies they attempted to get rid of witnesses ordinary civilians in a restaurant seven dead. injured both he and his father and castrated here. when he fell ill they transferred me to help him for
a while the most important thing is to avoid becoming him pitted it is so easy to turn into an animal here staying human that's harder some say a life sentence is worse than the death penalty. i've been here for seventeen years and i've never heard anyone say they don't regret it or that q. more. than i regret it everything is lost the years go by your health worsens everything passes by they are show you that you were wrong totally wrong you can't do that. dmitri slaughtered his family his father his mother and his brother he was twenty now he's forty five. years we watch t.v. we see people who have committed two or three murders get sentenced to seventeen or nineteen years that isn't so terrible yes we are guilty before the law yes we are guilty before the public but if they're left out after twenty years why are there
fraid of letting us out the difference is that life sentences are mostly reserved for crimes of such brutality that they escape reason for individuals deemed a permanent danger to society one inmate released early from the black dolphin committed the murder on the very train that was taking him home. most will never see release. inmates can pick where to work in the wood shop or on the suing machines they earn money with which they can buy extra food personal items make calls and pay compensation to their victims they even have visits four times a year i think that. if you take the period when we came into solving. and compare it to know the conditions are entirely different prisoners now have special terminals where they could review their cases complain about abuse were apply for
work they have a library school church which was built and painted by the inmates themselves they can also take walks sort of the exercise yard isn't anything to write home about but every room prisoner has the right to spend an hour an hour are here every day walking around exercising or just sitting still so long as they don't mind being watched guards check on everyone every fifteen minutes in cell cameras and monitor twenty four seven and there's three doors to every cell it's easy to see why no one has ever escaped from the black dolphin and for most of the uni sure way out is in a coffin for i guess the of. from solar let's russia.
on certainty hines over germany's political future after talks to form a three party coalition government collapsed on monday peter all over examines what caused the negotiations to fail and what options remain for chancellor merkel. the day after the bundestag election in september angela merkel said that she was confident that by christmas she would have a ruling coalition government in place or fast forward through weeks of torture a sit times negotiations with the green party and the pro-business free democrats while the wheels of that coalition health fail off well and truly with christie and of the free democrats delivering the killer blow we have the other one is that we will not abandon our voters for a policy with which we are not convinced it is better not to govern than to govern badly ingrained differences between the parties on key issues such as climate
change refugees and the budget saw the so-called jamaica coalition break down. just hours after coalition talks with the free democrats and the greens collapsed under merkel was turned down by another coalition suitor this time the social democrats martin schulze saying there would be no return to a grand coalition if. on september the twenty fourth the grand coalition lost fourteen percent so it's clear we were shown the red card in view of the election
results we are not available to join a grand coalition without off the table one other option available to angela merkel would be to rule over a minority government most likely with the green party. but a minority government. would be unstable at best and would certainly require horse trading on gargantuan proportions with the other four parties in parliament if the government was to well pass anything more than just time in the chamber it's also worth noting that this would be a first in modern german history and wouldn't exactly fit the profile of the german voters who do love stabilises so where does this leave us the other option would be we go back to the polls for fresh elections. that could well prove to be a storm she doesn't whether. that's really fun for somebody has got to be
responsible for that the federal chancellor created this situation she's been in power for what feels like a hundred years and now she should be asking herself maybe i have something to do with this situation. mrs merkel has failed it's time for now to take a step back that night at the end of the merkel era began europe's biggest economy is heading into uncharted territory with current polling suggesting that a new ballot wouldn't return any results too different from what we had in september it does seem that there is no immediate solution to the current instability germany is facing and of course the implications that has for the why do european union peter all of a r.t. berlin well after it was announced the talks had failed the german president called on all parties to work towards producing a stable government this is the moment when all those involved should pause and
reconsider their stance in all the parties voted into the parliament are committed to the common good they are serving our land expect from everyone the willingness to talk in order to facilitate the formation of a government in the near future that. i'm going to merkel has already indicated her readiness to renew the so-called grand coalition with the social democrats the system that governed germany for the past four years the chancellor saying is the alliance has proved very effective on the social democrats with martin schultz at the helm seem to have softened their position a tad as well they had previously refused to deal with merkel again i would be surprised if we had fresh elections but apparently stated we are going to have them both policy of always clung to power and i thought she would have sought another negotiated solution for everybody it's just f.t.p. but in the end the jamaica coalition agree to a mall here and this is indeed to the unprecedented situation it's going to be new
elections. and probably also the ifi the opposition party will gain because this. is quite a silent significant part of the population that wants a change in the immigration policies still ahead on the weekly google's parent company has been busy making changes to its search engines especially when it comes to russian media so you for that then ninety second. level blogs selling you on the idea that dropping bombs. on. you. like. that we all. want.
seventeen minutes into the program welcome back it emerged this week google's pern company is working on d. ranking stories from r.t.e. on the sputnik news agency in web searches the move would make articles harder to find alphabet boss eric schmidt's comments came out of a security forum in canada when he was asked about r t's use of google's odd sense service. i had a subscription for google alerts in german language and getting them every day out of ten resolves between five and ten every day when sputnik news which is some russian german program that and when i clicked on them and the room wanted to rise . this is really necessary to monitor rows russian propaganda outlets would google it and so we're well aware of this one and we're working on detecting this kind of
scenario you're describing and again the ranking the ranking those kinds of sites it's basically our car the two and there's a whole bunch of coverage about what we're doing there but we're well aware of it we're trying to engineer the system to prevent it we don't want to ban the sites eric schmidt two you just heard there has a long time relationship with the leadership of the democratic party in the u.s. he was reportedly a donor to obama's campaign later becoming an advisor to his administration he's also believed to be the tech mastermind behind hillary clinton's presidential campaign although he's never confirmed himself well under pressure from the u.s. authorities google recently launched an investigation into alleged russian meddling but google's own report to congress says that find no evidence that r.t. had violated its policies or manipulated you tube in any way to get its status as they most viewed news network last month google dropped our channel from its prime
in the u.s. without notice or explanation it later cited a drop in viewership as the reason the spike r t being the most watched t.v. network on the platform. why didn't you revert artie's preferred status after the i.c. eight came out in january two thousand and seventeen it took you to september of two thousand and seventeen to do it the removal of r t from the program was actually a result of the as as i understand it is a result of some of the drop in viewership there was nothing about r t or its content. then to state interstate out. meanwhile eric smith's remarks are being contradicted by a google representative who said the company doesn't change its algorithms to rebrand individual sites media consultant needle wallace is certain google's actions against r.t.
are politically motivated i do think it censorship you don't have to light the stories that russia today covers you don't have to want to read the material coming from sputnik but i really do not believe it in any way except a ball that a bunch of politically correct. democratic party supporting people certainly in silicon valley should decide what i should or should not read i think it's the height of arrogance i think that i am quite capable of watching r.t. reading sputnik and deciding what i do or do not want to take from it what i do or do not believe i think this is extremely said mr as i say. lebanon's prime minister suspended his resignation on wed and state his sudden announcement to step down made in riyadh two weeks before that had plunged his country into turmoil many saw as evidence of a growing regional power struggle between saudi arabia and iran. be.
announced my resignation from the post of prime minister with my certainty that the will of the lebanese is stronger that they will be able to overcome the tutelage from inside or outside because i discussed my resignation with the president of the republic he won't speak to wait before submitting it to put it on hold and to allow for more consultations into the reasons behind it are complied after resigning in saudi arabia hariri took a small detour before returning home and choose the he visited france egypt and cyprus here's a quick recap of the events of recent days. somebody
was met by cries of supporters on his return to the route some of them like many of their country's politicians believe he was held against his will forced to resign by the saudis we asked people in the lebanese capital he's prime minister by force and pushed him to resign while he was outside his country and that he said we have to tell ourselves we want our country to stay out of regional conflict when it comes to the saudis meddling i'm sure it will continue and it's not only riyadh's interference and to live in these affairs many other countries are doing it too because i'm sure saad hariri wants to help his country lebannon i think that the way saudi arabia treated him is very wrong. but this is r t international more programs write it.
what politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted over checked. so when you want to be president or injury. or somehow want to press freedom or can't be good that i'm interested always in the waters of my house. first sit. the village of collect she has been nicknamed sleepy hollow because for some unknown reason its local residents have found victim to sleep pajama trolls move. for the future i would rather get a shot. at but also initiating a sort of but i'm also going with the question are stored on peaceful superthin you want to go back there more deeply the. growing grass from where did you do what we
