10:07 pm
venezuela not by xstrata forces now that's very strange coming from the united states government which is the first to recognize one why do as the president of venezuela he sanctioned it is frozen billions upon billions of venezuelan government money to sanction state companies that has left the government unable to pay people to provide assistance to provide medical care and it has promised to keep ramping up that pressure until they get what they want which is from a do to leave and. to become the official president of venezuela so you know mixed messages certainly from the united states. protesters have surrounded the venezuelan embassy in washington d.c. blaming the u.s. for the ongoing crisis the embassy staff left the building last week after a u.s. imposed deadline passed and activists say they have blockaded the embassy to
10:08 pm

10:09 pm
for working as an unregistered foreign agent has been answering reporters' questions by phone. i did not expect to the sentence to be this harsh for not registering as a foreign agent i got the same sentence as the person who sold secret information to the chinese government it was the same sentence eighteen months i think it's absurd he was maria's first aberrate interview since her arrest in july last year she was uncertain question via telephone from a detention facility in the us where she is now being held on certain questions the handed to her in advance by different news outlets including r t the first one was the most over this one why at all maria pleaded guilty instead of insisting on her being innocent and as you remember last friday she was sentenced to eighteen months
10:10 pm
in jail for failing to register as a foreign agent off the she had pleaded guilty in december and she explained today that it was a commonsense choice between two evils since i accepted the deal while the maximum sentence would have been five years otherwise it could have been as much as fifteen so i think any sensible person would have done the same thing but there was also a question about the connection between muddy boots and the mole or teen this is a group of special investigators investigating russia's alleged meddling in the us elections of two thousand and sixteen of the name of the team was mentioned by the federal judge who sentenced him to read to eighteen months in jail and the question was how was the ria connected to their investigation and here's her on people from the miller's team talked to me for five minutes total and as everyone
10:11 pm
knows i was not mentioned in this report in any way. there's no relation between my case and this report the whole questioning took five minutes total the closer folders and never called back and never came back there were several questions about challenges mary has been facing in a prison in motion all intellectual physical psychological and that she had tried and actually had managed to invest the time and attention facilities to educate her spending time had the libraries reading and learning but she said that the main goal was to keep her safe and to save her mind i made every minute count so i had this little sheet of paper with my schedule so i put my socks on it this is the only way not to go crazy is to get busy i exercise for
10:12 pm
an hour and a half pull ups and whatever you could do in a small so reading of course. maria already served nine months out of her eighteen month sentence and there was a question about what she's going to do you when she's finally freed and she said she hopes that once she is released she will be immediately deported to russia and she's right now thinking about a teacher career. or a maria boots and his father was listening to the q. and a session and shared some fonts on his daughter's case with. no loss for us for our family and i have no doubt for her colleagues and friends too it's hard to come to terms with this prison sentence which in our opinion is unjust considering the conditions she's been kept in for the past nine months she has already endured enough as her lawyer said such a harsh punishment for the offense she's been accused of could only have been given to a russian national so our family in the russian state take the view that all this has
10:13 pm
to do with the anti russian sentiment that has arisen in the us recently she spent a long periods in solitary confinement i'm glad she is so resilient because judging by the conversations i've had with her plenty of inmates struggle to cope psychologically in solitary confinement some even bang their heads against the wall being kept in solitary confinement for a month and she was kept for longer than that is very tough of. cambridge university in the u.k. has launched a two year in korea and eight hundred year old institution benefited from slavery during the corneal era. it is only right that can bridge should look into its own exposure to the profits of course the way but during the colonial period we cannot change the past but lawsuit to seek to hide from it. cambridge university is not the only institution looking into its imperial past other prestigious universities
10:14 pm
in the u.k. and u.s. have done the same in recent years facing up to their past and the potential gains that they made cambridge's rival oxford faced a long dispute over a controversial statue of a nineteenth century colonialist but claimed it would have faced severe financial cuts had it removed the monument university of east london tried to set up a one hundred million pound fund for reparations over slavery saying that the money should be put aside to support ethnic minority students and in america harvard has removed master from its academic titles and georgetown students voted in favor of reparations for the descendants of nearly three hundred slaves sold by the university in the nineteenth century we heard from some opposing views earlier on whether paying out reparations now is the right way to atone for crimes of the distant past. these decisions are very much long overdue and one would have thought
10:15 pm
that a country such as britain coming to terms with his colonial past would have made this these sorts of efforts much earlier but nevertheless i do applaud. cambridge. go for taking this initiative and i think other institutions like the british museum the british library all of the colonial there are. in britain as a consequence of colonial plunder should now be in an act silva reparation return today countries of origins look no one can argue that slavery was a good thing it was an horrendous thing. course we should learn and teach our kids and educate ourselves indeed about the horrors of slavery let's just remind ourselves though there we were the first to abolish it i don't think there's any nation in the world that has a nod to being enslaved or being involved in the slavery trade including the
10:16 pm
continent of course of africa itself but i think this idea of pay reparations is ludicrous please spare me the horse a shirt this wasn't me or my generation or did it did this we do need education people need to be aware of it but who would you give that money to africans living in this country africans in africa we're talking about four hundred years of slavery we're talking about are people robbed of their religion their language their culture and their familial resources taken up dropped in another either surrender treated what he was horrendous four hundred for four hundred or for four hundred years these words were set in prisons and he saw a whole resit in history is impressive made in modern times so if you say that europeans were involved so president like arnold nations like ghana. of already
10:17 pm
sell their reparations schemes gambia the same way sierra leone all of those of had reparation an apology schemes for last twenty five thirty years so britain is really just catching up i understand what slavery was and it was horrendous what i'm saying is we're now yes lot but yeah make sure we educate make sure nothing like that can ever happen again but for you to come up with a scale of slavery often could slavery was bad that bracelet very it's kind of stupid it's silly cambridge university the asli looking into their history and if they want to necessarily having gone and not being very well making yourself look absolutely silly cambridge university should be congratulated for looking back at what they do but there's no need for the whole says sure there's no need for us to be paying money to some black people which black people would be would it be. supporters of us presidential hopeful bernie sanders have launched an online
10:18 pm
campaign for him to be the democratic nominee in the two thousand and twenty alexion but they warn that otherwise they will vote for donald trump and he's kilmartin has more. on the surface donald trump and bernie sanders seem like chalk and cheese polar opposites although trump has got to be defeated donald trump is a pup a logical lawyer are you embarrassed his loss every single day crazy bernie he's crazy is a bed bug but you know he doesn't quit crazy bernie i tell you i got to hear the difference bernie sold out to the devil so here's a shock for you donald trump is genuinely concerned about bernie sanders especially his nomination by the democrats in two thousand and twenty the democratic national committee sometimes referred to as the d.n.c. is again working its magic in its quest to destroy crazy bernie saunders for the more traditional but not very bright sleepy joe biden here we go again but this
10:19 pm
time please show a little more anger and indignation when you get trump has good reason to be concerned back in two thousand and sixteen twelve percent of bernie sanders supporters turned against hillary clinton and they ended up voting for donald trump donald trump wouldn't be sitting in the oval office without them and new polls show that history could repeat itself twenty six percent of bernie sanders supporters would not vote for elizabeth warren in the final election despite the fact that she has similar policies to her democratic rival and this growing overlap between trump and burning supporters seems to be a growing phenomena i'm seventy eight and have been waiting for bernie oh my life if it's not burning my vote goes to trump out of pure spite now i can believe that i have some trump voting friends who always said that if trump wasn't running then vote for bonus sound as easily they have a lot of voter overlap even another democratic candidate in the race brought it up it just kind of turns you against the system in general and then you're more likely
10:20 pm
to want to vote for this which could lead to somebody like bernie could lead to something like we've been finding out of people here in new york have noticed this trend i'm sure a lot of people are for. it up with our current dysfunctional government people are fed up with their traditional politics over the last twenty thirty years just think because he's an outsider he's against the system and he was like the year he was treated very badly during the two two thousand and sixteen election politics in the united states is taking an interesting turn seems that now a days voters are less concerned about what you stand for and what you represent as a candidate but rather about how loudly you speak out against an establishment with many detractors kaleb mopp and r.t. new york. now for something completely different to asteroid mining is said to become the next frontier in the aerospace market as countries like the u.s. and japan and china invest millions of dollars in the search for rock minerals and precious metals and now it seems germany is joining the mission to reach previously
10:21 pm
untapped resources several years ago the us became one of the first nations to begin encouraging private companies to invest in space mining if successful it could shock the markets back on earth for gold silver and platinum the small but wealthy e.u. state of luxembourg saw potential in the extraterrestrial project investing twenty eight million dollars in a u.s. firm in berlin is now rolling back some of its legislation to attract companies to fund explorations and we heard from the founder of one mining corporation who says the sky is not the limit. going to talk that kind of this late me aren't a lot of book. about six knots not stopping one gemini's protect what interest is looking up things that mating because obviously space meaning is an edgy market so our main competition undercut and then just light sentences and planted
10:22 pm
explosives where the only meeting ends a good twenty teams but they were moving into the east and has been to mock says each. and since then speech thing flew over europe to the east and it's about. a minute scientists have to take advantage of the next to be. vast economic it will asteroids all right by the hype buxom berg has revealed it has lost thirteen million dollars investing in the development of space mining so far the director of a risk analysis group told us that there are other nonfinancial dangers as well. space lightning is a very important topic but ownership is going to be a big big topic to understand who owns these minerals that they're going to lie in and also if something goes wrong about a space space debris how will that affect the international order and who will be responsible for such mess it's true that space debris is
10:23 pm
a major major concern for all countries involved in outer space with germany if they say to their companies you know we give you sort of rights or we listen your liabilities if something happens in our space that affects other satellites of other countries then logic doesn't really apply that would be sustainable. the u.s. has been accused of manipulating travel procedures in order to hinder russia's participation in the united nations the russian foreign ministry made that claim after washington refused to issue a visa to the head of a russian delegation on disarmament the russian scientific expert was due to attend a briefing on the use of chemical weapons in syria you know nations says that they're looking into the issue or issues maduna question of them as more the reason behind such a harsh statement coming from russia's foreign ministry is the fact that they had a fresh as defense ministry research institute mutely park lansky was denied a u.s.

visa now he was supposed to travel to new york and there at hand a u.n. security council session he was due to brief the council on a russia's account of as a suspected poison gas attack in syria now the ministry added that the us authorities were obviously as seeking not to allow objective information about what happened in syria to be heard at the un and as it turns out such situations are becoming quite common now the park lansky opposite follows quite a similar a visa denial to the had of the russian delegation un desire moment. mission in march the ministry now believes that the us site repeatedly tries to prevent true information from spreading by preventing a prominent chemical expert from going to new york the us government was clearly trying to prevent objective information on the incident from being told from the un
