i want to feel the love young enough i don't. have the pics or the last 7 days but even approaching call for a symmetrical response to u.s. missile testing as tensions continue to grow following the collapse of the arms control treaty also to the. french rugby she's water counted tear gas against anticapitalist protesters close to the ongoing g. 7 summit this weekend the demonstrators are demanding the world leaders take urgent action to tackle poverty inequality and the destruction of the environment. i'm here to fight against this capitalist rule the world we talk about the fight against quality but i think this is nonsense. this dizzying display across public face the skies with brushes in the air about 16 before the forthcoming sesh.
3:01 am
about a bad thing. but by. yeah . but the way. around the world good morning from russia this is the live from moscow with me kevin owen here for the next 30 minutes with a regular weekly news review of the last 7 days and this is a big story the russian president sort of the country's military to prepare a symmetrical response to the united states testing of a previously banned missile last weekend for the putin stressed that moscow would not be drawn into a destructive new arms race with washington following the collapse of the arms control treaty. i ordered the ministry of defense the ministry of foreign affairs
3:02 am
and other corps offices to analyze the threat level created by the activities of the united states and to undertake comprehensive measures to prepare 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 that modified tomahawk cruise missile came just 2 weeks after the u.s. decided to kill off the longstanding intermediate range nuclear forces agreement and the projects all would she would have violated that accords which ban the production of certain land based short mid range missiles america's development of new weapons appears to be them part of a broader attempt to try to counter a rising threat from china as it's seen just this month the u.s. defense secretary says he wants to see missiles deployed in the asia pacific region it's drawn both e.r. of beijing and moscow with a look at the growing tensions. that was quick only last month this ground law and smoking toy was illegal.
3:03 am
it's already wiping out makeshift targets off the coast of california just like 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 asian 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. $41.00 new inching system was allegedly unable to launch tomahawk cruise missiles
3:04 am
now the fact of the violation is evident it is impossible to disputed they themselves spoke about it and of course the question arises how can we now understand what will be located in remaining poland with the missile defense 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 that represents
3:05 am
a clear threat to international peace and security of the russian federation because the sole responsibility for the reason demise of the media was it would have been diminished do you not understand that by your responses to the americans 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 us 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
3:06 am
instead of fixing and an exam to situation and returning back to compliance with the treaty the americans have orchestrated a propaganda campaign alleging violations by russia as is now clear this was just a smokescreen to hide washington's own breaches of the treaty and its intention to leave it but this will leave 0 doubt 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
3:07 am
conflict all the things that involve china right now is really just a bigger is just 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 hong kong protests. this weekend no no they don't have thousands of people who protest against this use g. 7 summit with leading economies would choose currently underway and b. or it's in the southwest affronts. on saturday crowds marched through the nearby town of bay all with police using water cannon and tear gas at times demonstrations also took place elsewhere in the region protesters are calling on world leaders to take an immediate action to tackle growing inequality and also that prevent possible climate catastrophe.
3:08 am
we're here to fight against this capitalist system that leads to so much destruction in so many levels. but i look time here to fight against this capitalist rule the world to say 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 release and i could tell you that none of these summits have every done anything good for ordinary people. to put into the international aid organization that's also accused the g.
3:09 am
7 nations of failing to address growing inequality in 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 and the u.k. are far behind that figure either in the way jacqueline vogel spoke to john date he's oxfam's head of government relations about his organization's new research out then 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 not point 5 percent on their wealth then it could raise over $200000000000.00 pounds a year now that's
3:10 am
a huge sum of money that's enough to educate the $262000000.00 children across the world who are currently not in school and also you to have enough money left over to put money into health care and to fund. enough health care to save the lives of $2000000.00 people or slum further argues that the tax systems of the g 7 countries are a k. driver of inequality and they tend to favor the rich it also says the government is a beholden to the interests of the super rich and shareholders of big corporations and as such are unable to adequately tackle environmental destruction jack lew good more from john de. do you 7 has existed for quite a long time are these problems that the report has highlighted something new or where they there from the beginning we know that inequality has existed for for a number of years but actually under a lot of measures inequality is increasing. so oxfam's own research found. that
3:11 am
inequality had increased over the last the last year and actually the wealth of richest billionaires was growing while the wealth of the poorest half of society had fallen do you think that this oxfam report will have any impact on this upcoming g. 7 summit we hope that the g 7 leaders will take it seriously as you know it was a menu mccrone himself and g 7 leaders who decided to make inequality a focus of the g 7 so what we're doing is providing some ideas to how they might tackle inequality and help reduce poverty through tackling inequality for those big stories of the week just told poland joined the u.s. in criticizing germany for failing to meet nato's defense spending target calling on its neighbor to increase its contributions and quickly despite the recent revelation though the berliners actually being spending millions of euros more than previously thought on american troops stationed in germany or your correspondent peter all of a took up the story. it's been a refrain of u.s.
3:12 am
politicians for quite a while now germany must spend more on its military under president trump that referring has turned into a crescendo but now he's talking 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 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.
3:13 am
armed forces for things like pension contributions and building maintenance there's also been a previously unheard figure of 480000000 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 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 op a $1000000000.00 for the privilege of having a u.s. soldier on its soil and not only u.s. soldiers but also nuclear weapons of mass destruction that the united states
3:14 am
wrought here it dance they will look the german population we want both weapons out of here fox is possible you are both gong. 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 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. state of the groundbreaking aviation technology in the lead him and

3:19 am
this is international reporting that is legal dio's apparently revealed that a major us oil and gas lobby group helped craft legislation that criminalized pipeline protests was in response to demonstrations against back then the construction of a pipeline in north dakota back into the sixty's during which activists chained themselves to equipment recall of protesters also started fires with authorities trying to remove them from the site is one of the latest. 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

3:21 am
now the language of the riot boosting act is a little bit vague it could be a stretch to outlaw even thinking about protesting big oil companies. i . pad this is the only law that's been pushed by the a.f.p. i am $28.00 teen a $30000000.00 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 efforts of 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. britain's prince andrew has broken his silence on his friendship with jeffrey upstate insisting he knew nothing of the convicted paedophiles illegal behavior the disgraced american finance either recently killed himself while in jail while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges but despite the jukes attempt to put an end to speculation about the relationship he didn't explain why he continued to see epstein after the millionaire had served a sentence for so this isn't prostitution from a minor. and no stage during the limited time i spend with him did i see witness or suspect any behavior of the saw that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction i met mr epstein in 1009 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 off his release in 2010. and his death has raised a lot of questions and from to the huge amount of speculation so much so that his
3:23 am
lawyers said they were not satisfied with the coroner's findings and they said they plan to carry out their own investigation one major question is why epstein was taken off suicide watch despite having recently attempted to take his own life.
3:24 am
and i'm all for any general william bars now sack the director of u.s. prisons following epstein's suicide the form of money manager was being held at a facility reserved for the most dangerous criminals alongside the likes of el chapo than a tourist mexican drug baron we spoke to a lawyer for the discourse for that seal. the conditions to which he was 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
3:25 am
chapo was alleged to have been he's not a guy who has escaped from prior facilities like guzman was alleged to have done. 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. 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

fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. paradise with some around turned into a round the experimentation field but agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major irritant 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 that often in day you have many of these people 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
