with the approach that promises to protect russia's national security by mirroring new u.s. missile capabilities following the collapse of the i.m.f. arms control agreements also. police used water cannon the tear gas against anti capitalist protesters close to the g. 7 summit the demonstrators a demanding that the leaders of the world's top economies. and inequality and runaway warming. and the disease it looks our correspondent take to the skies with brushes the lead to aerobatics before the forthcoming show.
1:01 am
good morning russia this is international live from moscow. with your regular weekly news review of the last 7 days and the russian president's order the country's military to prepare a symmetrical response to the united states testing of a previously banned missile last weekend. stress that moscow would not be drawn into a destructive new arms race with washington following what was the collapse of the i.m.f. arms control treaty. i order the ministry of defense the ministry of foreign affairs and other corps offices to analyze the threat level created by the activities of the united states and to undertake comprehensive measures to prepare
1:02 am
a symmetrical response besides russia is still open to an equal and constructive dialogue with the united states to recover trust and to reinforce international security the pentagon's test of a modified tomahawk cruise missile came just 2 weeks after the us decided to kill off the longstanding intermediate range nuclear forces agreement the projectile would have violated the accord which banned the production of certain land based short of mid range missiles so america's push to develop new weapons is being seen as an attempt to counter the challenge posed by china there at the beginning of august u.s. officials said they intended to deploy missiles in the asia pacific region drawing the ire than of both beijing and moscow. the story of the week. that was quick only last month this ground law inched smoking toy was illegal. it's already wiping out makeshift targets off the coast of california just like
1:03 am
that and the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty is now part of history so soon be ready to see those in different parts of the world the pentagon boss was even quick to say they want to start with the asia pacific but russia is already worried about a different part of the world to eastern europe right near the russian borders as you can see american officials have said they're launching systems in romania and poland are different from the m.k. 41 used in california well the russian government's not buying it. but the american still believes rejected this claiming that the ground based m.k. fools who will no inching system was allegedly unable to launch tomahawk cruise missiles now the fact of the violation is evident it is impossible to dispute it they themselves spoke about it and of course the question arises how can we now understand what will be located in remaining poland would it be missile defense
1:04 am
systems or missile strike systems sufficiently long range so why was the i have treaty signed by the u.s. and russian leaders more than 30 years ago so crucial to make sure that europe where nowadays america's nato allies and russia actually share a border doesn't turn into a vulnerable danger zone dotted with launch pads one following the test in california of the un security council convene this week the russian representative threw a question in european diplomats are you actually ready to find yourself in between 2 rivaling cruise missile arsenals. are you going to avoid responsibility for what is happening to future generations forgive you for this. russia's present actions are in line with a pattern of aggression the represents a clear threat to international peace and security of the russian federation because the sole responsibility for the reason demise of the treaty was it would have been diminished do you not understand that by your responses to the americans
1:05 am
you are returning to historical situation when missiles will target european cities from different sites well so far most european states have a grade with the us line d.c. kept blaming russia for violating the i n f deal and that was exactly how they explained their own pull out there's nothing that russia can say osho to change the fact that russia has already tested the 979 cruise missile to ranges beyond 500 kilometers in violation of the i.m.f. treaty moscow's message has remained the same all claims that they were breaking the rules are a lot and on friday vladimir putin had a real go at the u.s. government for what's seen in russia as completely twisting their reality in favor of uncle sam's ambitions to the worst of it is pretty instead of fixing and an extent to situation and returning back to compliance with the treaty the americans of all castrated a propaganda campaign alleging violations by russia as is now clear this was just
1:06 am
a smokescreen to hide washington's own breach of the treaty and its intention to leave it leaves there any doubts about america's real intentions having got rid of the existing limits is now free to deploy previously forbidden missiles anywhere in the world as i said earlier though in the 1st place washington's thinking over a bold chess move in the asia pacific not that brush is far from that area either but it's clear want countries on the mind of strategists and the scene in the 1st place people in the trump administration. yell that. they need to push back on beijing and a hard way they feel that they're running out of time feeling that china is getting stronger and they need to act fast to provoke china into some kind of military conflict all the things that involve china right now is really just a bigger is just
1:07 am
a piece of the bigger picture of political tensions between us and china whether it's the trade war whether it's taiwan whether it's the hong kong protests. thousands of people who are protesting the week against the issues g. 7 summit of leading economies which was going to imbue the roots of the southwest from. i. on saturday crowds marched through the nearby town of with police using water to. tear gas demonstrates shins also took place elsewhere the region to protesters are calling on board to take immediate action to tackle growing inequality and also to prevent possible climate catastrophe. so much aqib we're here to fight against this capitalist system that leads to so much destruction on so many levels there's a story but i loot time here to fight against this capitalist rule the world to say
1:08 am
we've had enough of the situation that's leading us to total destruction as a species as a culture and to the destruction of human rights because. i came here to protest against the g 7 and the policies of those countries' leaders it's ridiculous for the heads of 7 of the richest countries to claim inequality is the main theme of this forum well at the same time we see how their own policies bring about inequality come when the most academic or perhaps 7 of the most powerful countries in the world have gathered only to divide the world's wealth between themselves they talk about the fight against inequality but i think this is nonsense as always for the past 45 years i have been going to this rallies and i can tell you that none of these summits have ever done anything good for ordinary people. the international aid organization has also accused the g. 7 nations of failing to address growing inequality a new report the group says that in the u.s. the poorest 50 percent of the population own just one percent of the country's wealth germany in the u.k.
1:09 am
and not only that it we go learn jacqueline spoke to john de head of government relations about his organization's new research. why do you think the g 7 don't work properly what are the main problems more widespread as well. so we think one of the kind of major barriers is how wealth is distributed between people across the world and in g 7 countries so that the 7 biggest economies in the g 7 hold nearly half the world's wealth and actually if g 7 leaders implemented a new tax a new wealth tax where they to tax the top one percent of richest people in g 7 countries an additional nor point 5 percent on their wealth then it could raise over $200000000000.00 pounds a year now that's a huge sum of money that's enough to educate the $262000000.00 children across the world who are currently not in school and or so to have enough money left over to put money into health care and to fund. enough health care to save the lives of
1:10 am
2000000 people. you know the story we brought you poland joined the u.s. in criticizing germany for failing to meet nato's defense spending target is despite berlin having revealed it's been spending millions of euros more than previously thought american troops stationed in germany germany's current expenditure is budgeted 1.4 percent that's about $47000000000.00 euros but it still falls short of the 2 percent required by the military alliance is more of the growing dispute or europe correspondent peter all over. it's been a refrain of u.s. politicians for quite a while now germany must spend more on its military under president trump that referring has turned into a crescendo now struck about germany i mean germany honestly is not paying their fair share do you think germany is doing enough to meet the to press on target you know. what should germany do they should meet the goals that they
1:11 am
agreed to we have 52000 troops in germany. and germany is not living up to what they're supposed to be doing with respect to later on the thing is though opposition politicians have requested from the finance ministry documents that show that actually germany has been spending more than was thought for the privilege of having u.s. troops in the country over the last 7 years germany's contributed 243000000 euros directly to the u.s. armed forces for things like pension contributions and building maintenance there's also been a previously unheard busy figure of 400000000 euros that's actually germany's contribution to the nato construction budget however the documents that were requested by the left parties show this money went almost exclusively to u.s. projects the m.p. who made the request is far from happy about what's being revealed germany is
1:12 am
a hop of global u.s. small flamm it's subsidized by the german taxpayer must be stopped at last a recent poll of german citizens found that 3 quarters of those asked didn't think they'd be any risk to their safety if u.s. troops pulled out of the country altogether germany is currently paying more than a $1000000000.00 for the privilege of having u.s. soldiers on its soil and not only u.s. soldiers but also nuclear weapons of mass destruction that the united states brought here gas they will look the german population we want both weapons out of here fossils possible who are both. that all adds up to well no small chunk of change $723000000.00 euros that's gone almost exclusively to the united states to put that in the bit of context well that's more than the agriculture ministry requested to fight climate change with
1:13 am
a reforestation programme it's about the same as the 10 year refurbishment plan for the natural history museum and it's almost as much as the annual budget of the german space program earlier this month the u.s. ambassador in suggested the u.s. troops could pull out and relocate to poland but the some here at the moment that seems more like a hope than a threat peter oliver r.t. berlin. here excitement building in the russian capital at the max 2019 big show which gets going in a couple of days' time our correspondent in a bit of a preview double quarter we want to find out what's in store for aviation enthusiasts.
1:14 am
the russian team is preparing for an international aviation and space this is a major air show that's going to take place to be end of august and there's going to be there tech and pilots from countries all over the globe the pilots are going to be showing off their bets and that's a bad and we were lucky enough to get invited to a plane to join one of those pilots so i hope you're not afraid of. them.
1:15 am
but. after we returned in one piece our pilot constantine told us all about the international aviation and space so long. i have been training for more than 10 years and i've been in the pilot for 4 years the air show include the featuring aerobatics performances and the standard maneuvers the championships rolls and loops etc the international tournament features competitors from. many european countries and known european countries including the us the air show is not a contest the contest happens at the championship with the aerobatics and other events so when the air show each group shows its skills and this big taters decide for themselves what they like of course we will show what we do best and what's the
1:16 am
best show of the week stone cold of the day 15 moscow time this sunday high that coming up. after the break leaks odio to show claims that a powerful us oil and gas lobby groups been working to get the pipeline protest.
1:17 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race. spearing dramatic development only. exists i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical. to sit down and talk. this is about international live with me kevin no it's our news review of the week next then leaked or dia has apparently revealed that a major us oil and gas lobby group helped craft legislation that criminalized anti
1:18 am
pipeline protests it was in response to demonstrations against the construction of a pipe well in north dakota back into the 60 during which activists chained themselves to equipment there has also started fires when the authorities tried to remove them from the site with more of the story. if you want to have big influence in washington d.c. and need to have a big lobby and that means you need to have big money meet the american fuel and petrochemical manufacturers the a.f.p. represents all the big names in the energy markets koch industries chevron exxon mobil valero energy to name a few now the pm has been around since $190.00 to making sure that the voice of the ultra wealthy oil monopolists are not left out of the political process and it seems like their latest target has been protesters now the a.t.f. has crafted legislation in $22.00 different states already passed in 9 states that
1:19 am
would severely restrict the activities of political activists who might get in the way of oil pipelines and other profitable infrastructure in an audio recording obtained by the intercept the group's senior vice president discusses the strategy that they're using to criminalize protests. with. the. now the language of the riot boosting act is a little bit vague it could be stretched to outlaw even thinking about protesting big oil companies. now this is the only law that's been pushed by the a.f.p.
1:20 am
i am 28 teen age 30000000 dollar lobbying effort killed a carbon tax in washington state bigger cars means more gasoline and more gasoline means more profits for the oil companies the money and influence of big oil certainly outweigh the effort. the grassroots environmentalists everybody knows that in the united states of america if you want something you have got to pay for it and the oil industry certainly has all the means necessary. but r.t. new york. now the big story in the way britain's prince andrew strongly rejecting all suggestion that he may have been aware of convicted paedophile jeffrey epstein's actions the disgraced us from of course recently killed himself in jail while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges despite that though the duke of york didn't explain why he continued to see epstein after the american multimillionaire served his sentence 1st soliciting prostitution from a minor and no stage during the limited time i spend with him did i see witness or
1:21 am
suspect any behavior of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction i met mr epstein in 1909 during the time i knew him i saw him infrequently and probably no more than once or twice a year i stayed in a number of his residences i've said previously that it was a mistake and an error to see him after his release in 2010 epstein's death has raised a lot of questions and conspiracy theories especially since prince andrew was not the only friend he had in high places among them others has been reported also donald trump and bill clinton have seen those been taken off suicide watch those bear that in mind despite having made the recent attempt on his own life.
1:22 am
further u.s. attorney general william but as such the director of u.s. prisons following eppstein suicide as he was being held at that facility reserved for the most dangerous criminals among them the mexican drug baron el chapo we spoke to have seen his lawyer furniture thinks the conditions of the jail were what drove him over the edge. the conditions to which he was
1:23 am
subjected would buckle even the knees of the strongest among us it's this is one of the toughest federal pretrial detention facilities in the country and the conditions are inhumane epstein was subjected to conditions that were similar to those of guzman but not remotely justified by his character or what he was accused of because he was not. a violent individual like chapman chapo was alleged to have been he's not a guy who has escaped from prior facilities like guzman was alleged to have done so one would be comparing apples and oranges to liken the 2 to each other but yet their conditions of confinement were strikingly similar and there's something fundamentally wrong with that and what's fundamentally wrong with that is that jeffrey abstain did not belong in that facility to begin with. just my own
1:24 am
personal opinion it wouldn't surprise me to learn of anything that might have happened with jeffrey epstein and in my view at that in that facility the real story the real miracle is that we don't hear about these sort of things more about murdered pretrial detainees or suicidal pretrial detainees because the facility. is barbaric and it's a whole it's a it's it's like i don't use the word lightly lightly but it's sort of like an american go log for people who have not yet been convicted of anything so the real shock here is that we don't hear about deaths at pretrial oppressive onerous pretrial detention facilities like the m.c.c. more often. any of us could one day find ourselves rightly or wrongly on on the. business and of of the united states department of justice and nobody
1:25 am
nobody said should be subjected to the conditions that epstein was exposed to for many reasons one of which is that compromises your mental and physical functioning and you can't assist adequately in preparing your own defense and. people we don't really know what happened to mr epstein but but certainly i believe personally that being a locked in a facility like that under extraordinary conditions would logically wreak havoc with one's mind and body so i certainly i certainly believe that they personally that they could have played a role absolutely i mean i think we would be foolish to to deny that but again one doesn't want to treat the symptom while ignoring the disease and the disease is how people are routinely denied bail with a shocking ease given the laws that congress passed allowing prosecutors and judge
1:26 am
to do that epstein did not belong locked up pending trial and he didn't belong in a hellhole like that before he had been convicted of anything. sobering story do and that's the way some of the big news stories of the last 7 days looked as reported by us to you here in moscow this sunday is kevin to say thanks for watching stay with us for a nice programs in your part of the world and have a great rest of this weekend. seemed wrong. but. just don't. get to shape out just to. educate and indeed from it equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
1:27 am
oh why a paradise with some all year round turned into a round the experimentation field but agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would that the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments good often in day you have many of these people who have one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental research going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with this because the people have less political power.
1:28 am
or that's my life that i started about australia 40 years ago and i've been living in the luxury areas life of ever cheaper money ever since literally not having to work a day in my life because they asked us bought it 40 years ago and gone straight up . join me every 1st day on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guests of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. so right now we're driving through both neighborhoods and you can see time and distance from each gang. so this is jordan. this is the territory claimed by the green street crips during war time bonnie hunt is no less likely to come in here
1:29 am
because this is one way in an art and one way out so once you come in and do a shooting you're trapped in their neighborhood and they can return fire so it's not the safest way to to avenge a shooting so often they'll go on the outskirts of the neighborhood hoping to get a great street kripke that's a lot of times when innocent people get shot. so in the next couple of days someone from this development most likely will go over towards nickerson like they have the last couple of days and commit a shooting and vice versa so all these neighborhoods now are in play. for him. several months ago. a gentleman with the moniker of menace from 15 hill was caught inside the gang territory of the village voice a couple of the village boys. went outside jumped on menace beat him down stuffed
1:30 am
a minister trashed you. and. they took the trash here and brought him back behind another house and tortured them they sodomized him they sliced him up with a machete and when they sliced him up they put in the end his chest the village voice. and then they continued to torture and then they wrapped him up in a rug burned and dumped him in long beach there's one thing about beating a guy down or killing them but the torture of the sodomy all that stuff that's that's just what gang members do so they found menace right around here beat him down put him in the trash can and then they will am. to this location here. with a murder him assault them sodomized him and torture him. they're not concerned with people watching them commit crimes or being prosecuted because of that. they'll go after witnesses they'll intimidate them and if they have to the old will even try
1:31 am
to kill them you can see how they're marking up their neighborhood and his village voice.
