your opinion leaders to maneuver between tehran and washington to say the historic twenty fifteen agreement. it's one o'clock am and you're watching all to international line from our studio with me. we have all all big stories of the day but first we start with our special coverage a very warm welcome to the program but today has drawn to a close at least in the russian capital the culmination of a day of high emotion and national pride i want to splays the skies in dozens of cities nationwide earlier than the traditional imortal regiment launches so more than ten million turnouts carrying traits of relatives who endured the great patriotic war more than seven hundred thousand turned out in moscow alone to remember the sacrifices made almost a. every farmer in
a safe less affected by the conflict from anything reforms in the fine tuned to suffering in my trip or conditions just to stay alive or correspondence downhole can from really trying to join the crowds marching in moscow. nothing unites this country more then the immortal regiment marched those who say that this victory parade is just saber rattling displays of what it should martin simulation day to be here i'm coming have a look at this because this is very much hard to describe the crowd of people is just absolutely analysts those records broken last year every year in fact since this parade has gone on and it is just in comparable to anything one has ever seen is the biggest to my knowledge remembrance of events in russia in the world nothing quite like it all of this sort we have to stop guess why because there are just so many people and there is police here around and around me they have to direct the flow of the crowd because it is just so immense every time i see this i just
don't understand when the flow of the crowd is going to stop it's endless it always it can never stop surprising you and this is why the mortal regiment march in the capital of russia is so important people bearing photographs portrayed scouring metals of those who for many if you died in the war behind each one is a story no family left untouched when people print this portraits out when people flick through the family archives when there is the grandchildren great grandchildren great great grandchildren look at all that they just can't help wondering what's. what what's the story behind all these portraits this is how families unite all literal people here over all generations of all colors creeds and races i've seen flags here from. a cosmic stone kid against bella ruth's
moldova and it's also interesting how it unites generations my mother cried when i talked to her on the phone about an hour ago this is her grandfather and what i'm doing right now is very special for my family because three years ago i made i promise to my family that for four consecutive victory days i'm going to carry the portraits of all my great grandfathers all for for the and more to why jim and march and bob of move on here he is this man completes the choir ted so i'm happy to tell you that i kept my promise and this is why it's so heartwarming in some way or another some came back from the front some did not one person who did not was my great grandfather could do small to gulu who died in ninety two to defending stalling but that was one of the key bottles of the great patriotic war schools
here in russia we did a little bit of digging around in family background family history and we found out that off at the he separated from his family just before the war he actually part of his new family hides a son my grand my grandmother's cough brother they to this day had never met now both in their eighty's i thought what better way to pay tribute to could do says memory to all his sacrifice he bought my grandmother and a half brother long lost from russia and from latvia on the lot of money together here this is what happened. after her. so. crosses the

lasted for two hundred days between one hundred forty two and nine hundred forty three because the red army over one million one hundred thirty thousand soldiers journeys losses were even higher than losing the battle the nazi leadership declared a day of national mourning many historians see the battle of stalingrad as a watershed moment and one that dramatically altered the course of the war. even now hiring reminders of the trauma inflicted by the war are emerging here's a letter that was uncovered with the remains of two soviet soldiers it never made it home. i was still in the collab each deep in the last one left i've been injured and will not last long.
but i will stay here i will die when i refused to give in to the enemy tell my wife that i was defending the mother. when the matter was. the bench. the victory parade on red square has for more than twenty years been a signature element of the celebration for mitt and i have watched by millions and attended by dignitaries and v.i.p.'s and most importantly rushes at what time factions.
were held on the twentieth and the fortieth anniversary of the victory since nine hundred ninety five when the cheaper rates have been held annually. over the last few weeks in the build up to the day we've brought you many touching stories like ninety four year old veteran who joined the resistance straight after graduating from school becoming a frontline scout she sustained injuries that prevented her from having children later in her life her husband died a few years ago so now she's all alone and i ask people to send to letters and postcards to mount victory day and the. it seems has been overwhelming. pushes the deceased's so full of history let's leave it to the ears of the other that the rumor is the educated idiots that we. release this is b.s. regime that's your for the silliest and at least it is the future that this was and
is it is even easier to. her parents should think this president. bush's years earlier than this or she's this is a dilemma looking to get people who are barely getting my you want. to change the church services or that he seems to see. all places where it would be and. there are. six in the uk. so. that was.

a recent report from the u.k. foreign office highlights in detail the persecution of christians around the world in the middle east the cradle of christianity christians face extinction why is that deve politically incorrect in the west foundational religious. pressure on europe to save the iranian nuclear deal as leaders get down to talks at the summit in romania french president. stressed it would be washington to blame for. the treaty even though he believes that hollande for twenty fifteen agreement needs. from the very beginning france has been committed to the deal that was negotiated and signed the deal is no sufficient we would like to take into account
iran's missile activities e.u. has released a statement saying that it strongly urge is iran to continue to implement its commitments as it has done until now it also says it rejects any ultimatums from tehran and says that it will assess iran's compliance with the deal what has already imposed fresh sanctions on tehran trump reiterated his need for a fresh deal a fair deal as he called it and his secretary of state mike pompei o said that it's iran that's violating international norms the iranian regime's announcement that it intends to expand its nuclear program is in defiance of international norms and a blatant attempt to hold the world hostage is threat to renew nucular work that could shorten the time to develop a nuclear weapon on the schools the continuing challenge the iranian regime poses to peace and security worldwide well that was pomp ayers response to terrans an
announcement yesterday that it too would withdraw from certain parts of the iranian nuclear deal saying that china and russia had sixty days to protect iran's oil and banking sector from u.s. sanctions all this threatens to ravel what really was an agreement a diplomatic agreement of historic proportions and twenty fifteen the obama administration the e.u. russia china and iran finally signed this historic deal that had taken years of negotiation but it led to iran holding its nuclear weapons production in exchange for the easing of sanctions or year ago the trumpet ministration pulled out of the deal to the mantra over the. see it has been of much pressure on iran and the europeans have been trying to mitigate this situation throughout the past year and
although the u.s. is sort of thrown in the towel the americans on just punishing iran with the economic sanctions they are doing what so-called these secondary sanctions that means they're threatening to target any foreign companies that deal with tehran and guess which side many multinationals are choosing europe start all sorts of complicated mechanisms to circumvent these new realities there is a system called instead that's not yet operational but they're trying to kind of block the sanctions from european companies that are still up holding their side of the deal but really this deal has taken a big hit the net result is that tehran says that all they've had from europe for the past year has been more also poll the fact that europe's in the middle of it was felt most keenly i think in the u.k. yesterday it really was rather awkward because the u.s. secretary of state might pompei was in london on a visit visiting is u.k.
counterpart jeremy hunt and jeremy hunt was asked flat out whose side are you on anyway take a listen to his response if they break the deal then there will be consequences in terms of how european reacted so we should be rains to think very long and hard before they break we're working together to push back against that to your question about whose side are you on. this is a parlor game that gets played on the same side when the side of europe it was the us that unilaterally pulled out of this agreement now over a year ago if it even if you listen to the opinion of the un it says iran has been complying with the terms of the deal so you've got the us upping the ante with yet more sanctions iran. well we're going to give you sixty days or we stop complying on our side so both sides becoming increasingly polarized and you have your up some
