white house with the likes of the long must growing support behind him. very warm welcome to you you're watching r.t. international with me nikki error and not top story this hour the russia doping saga is once again making headlines new evidence has emerged questioning the authenticity of the key whistleblowers affidavits and originally submitted with the intent of showing which russian athletes allegedly cheated artie's saskia taylor has the details for us. independent expertise from a german newspaper spiegel say that in fact the signature of a key witness on a key piece of testimony is not actually an original but a low quality fake one digital forensic report concluded that the same photo you find liberal change of signature was inserted in 2 different affidavits the of the
9:02 am
7 was signed by hand that's at least is the conclusion of to put bordley independent experts but probably not in rob handwriting so whose signature and what's the back story while the signature is that of dr gregory watching coffin he used to run the anti doping report to hair in moscow now back in 2015 he fled to the us and in his bags with what many perceive to be a treasure trove of information documents hard drives u.s.b. sticks photos building stains don't think that he did let you been collecting for decades now stateside he declared that this will point to a massive scheme of russian pay at the 2014 winter olympic games in sochi not being masterminded by the kremlin or by the government itself now this was seized upon it was turned into an academy award winning film which it caress it became a huge story in the new york times russia reacted to these revelations by taking
9:03 am
appropriate measures by conducting its own investigations and by releasing all those officials who had been allegedly complicit in the scheme the problem though that some saw was that these allegations prove to be indiscriminate and even affected those athletes who throughout the whole illustrious career is have been considered it clean and would take a numerous doping test to prove that even they saw the fallout of these allegations and now all these years on are still trying to clear their names in total $43.00 athletes was sanctioned and many of the names were removed from the results lists of the sochi games and the longer term it's. saw athletes at the 20 games performing without a flag and without the national anthem now one of those athletes has consistently claimed innocence and denied or claims and is still now battling to reinstate her status and her name is by athlete and elin pick champion sites of she said she was
9:04 am
always so careful she bought her own food her own water bottles what's more she said all over the world for years i have been taking doping tests and they always came back clean now she was actually banned from the sport in 2017 on the basis of circumstantial evidence these latest revelations than from the spiegel article actually seem to support her claims of innocence several pieces of evidence in the files from the swiss proceedings that regal has viewed in recent weeks seem to not only substantiate sightsavers claims of innocence they also appear to raise questions about the overall credibility of the investigation into the sochi conspiracy and whether that too much faith was placed in the account provided by the whistleblower in the scandal now what you call source says that his client looks at all this differently man that any appeals by the russian athletes to clear their names will be unsuccessful it is worth mentioning that this is not the 1st time that character has been called into question there were previously rumors that
9:05 am
he'd extorted russian athletes that he talked and bragged about making money from this alleged scheme and there were also irregularities in his diary entries which proved that at times that he said he was a such medication were actually false so these latest revelations by the experts from the spiegel german newspaper will gain traction and people will take seriously this father undermining of chekhov's credibility also undoubtedly true that the question all the any other irregularities waiting to be discovered it earlier i discussed the thinking if it can solve the latest revelations with ellis cashmore professor of sociology at aston university and a former sports and media lecturer. it really depends on the court of arbitration rule on this if they believe and obviously it does throw the last fall far secures and beyond into deb's because people are going to wonder hang on if
9:06 am
a gent coffee is such a doubtful whistle blower and k. witness what does that make every subsequent events after that because as we've just heard a lot of the evidence against all the russian out of it is circumstantial in other words what they're saying is that we've examine the testing procedures and we believe a lot of these samples of be tampered with anything to be tampered with where did the tampering come from who did it what happened after that for 10000 lawyers seem to be quite confident about their position in the euro pez anything changed with these new revelations do you think well i think the globe the reason to be confident and everything that is said so far has been accepted america at the moment is in the midst of another political battle but it would seem to me at least it is questioning now the world anti-doping agency america wants to become as one poster put it recently the police officer of world you know who wants to in wants
9:07 am
to gain control of a doping that goes on in the war how do you say things playing out since this revelation i don't think that this will change the status quo i think that there is so much political will to keep russia out of sport at the moment. there is very little likelihood of the court of arbitration ruling against richard cough. u.k. as police watchdog is investigating the case of a stop and search where police the car window of a man they off they wrongfully accused him of drug possession ironically the man in question was driving home from a t.v. interview had just given about his experience with institutionalized racism specifically about being stopped for search as well his footage of the incident filmed by the man himself. they cannot go through.
9:08 am
all of those night. after coming from a challenge for him to be specifically talking about good stuff but at least lived with it. of late on an interview without stops just to check my phone or situation just leave the traffic just to stop me. and implied i was putting things in my waist just as i saw that clearly there wasn't anything there it was there was no drugs this never ever been drugs in my life never distributed at stake in the league. the video footage is a clear stronger windows smashed my hands were up i did not resist any blame and yes something. does go through my head a lot. evilness the police feared was now. yes quite dramatically very good for me but it was. in response
9:09 am
a police spokesperson claims the man had been detained after failing to comply with directions from officers a command of the place for thing question asked for the public to report any similar cases what this incident comes a year since police in england and wales were given powers to randomly search people in order to fight knife crime critics have always said the policy created more opportunities for racial profiling according to anti surge activists black people are 9 times more likely to be stopped compared to white people they also also claim the changes made it more difficult to hold offices accountable reichl are again believe the criticism is justified. every my no jews are more likely to be targeted by police forces in the. than anyone knows of native heritage something of experience personally i've experienced it with the way that they speak to me sometimes and i've known a lot of people give me similar stories that resonate with it is a reason why everyone's complain about this because you got to see that not
9:10 am
everyone carries an out not everyone carries any sort of weapon and reasonably in about this is more so than the manner that they treat it well but in the search yeah i think when she says i'm not. trying to look like an athlete minorities very much just the 3rd. american rapper kanye west has announced he's topping pop the politics by entering the race for the white house if so it would pit him against his long standing buddy donald trump however the music star has already missed key deadlines in many states although that hasn't stopped some high profile figures throwing their support behind him. we appreciate it very much jim apple for kids are just as bright and just as tallis white kids in jim's defense i've traveled with them and watch the music village and reporter has lost a lot of the random years either. joe
9:11 am
who knows her leaned forward and whispered some encouragement telling her that she was doing great. keep stevie. so. you know people expect that if you're black you have the democrat. college dropout kind. of thing this kind. of thing see even he even he
9:12 am
thinks that i don't think he has any chance the man is a narcissist and has no idea how hard i or isn't going to get even by running well just contribute to the whole surface temperatures right now he's not in the right position to be president. will be another job like donald trump i have to root for kanye right now because i love how does the want to go against the grain right now don't think he knows what he's doing is a little nuts and i think this is all a p.r. stunt crazier things that have been so i think is a is a better chance seriously it's a mistake sorry it's a huge. what does a kind of west point offer nothing he's not going to offer anything additional the only thing he will do is we'll split the vote for democrats but people who are on the conservative side of the republicans they're not going to vote for kind he was he might attract the youthful but the youth vote has never and i would say probably
9:13 am
will never turn out to be such a large influence on the election somebody in my age group of 14 over they're not going to vote for kanye west and not out of any animosity towards him but looking at what will he actually be a car able to comfort. those account russian design studio has been drawing attention for and usually what it almost like when it turns out there's not a human involvement on this story off the show right. join me every. time i'm sure and i'll be speaking to guests of the world of sports i'm sure i'll see you then.

9:16 am
a cult following has built up for its ability to produce eye catching logos for businesses but it turns out it's not an employee with a flair for innovation that's responsible gun culture explains. here in moscow the name nicholai a run of has been catching the attention of many his original and creative business logos have brought many satisfied customers to the r. to me live bit of studio here but mr own of has a secret one that no patron has been able to pick up on that's the fact that he's actually an advanced artificial intelligence living right here. many it might seem like science fiction but in russia it's science today we're going to find out how it all works this is the art director at the studio sergei nice to meet you thanks for giving us the interview mr video so take us on the floor is good.
9:17 am
stands for. and these emphasizes the artificial nature of personality he is the lead designer in the studio and you can actually find he's portrayed. human designers of our studio. at our website lets him mention that you need the logo for your business and all you have to do is just describe your company in text and send this text to him you collide and just within seconds he will come up with an unlimited amount of different design concepts while rumor has it our team needs a new logo so could we take him for a test drive and see what he could produce for us let's go with their start of the new project let's start r
9:18 am
t. based its description. and here you are while i like that one. mr owen of his no doubt a talented designer perhaps a little too talented for us humans interested in entering the design field of the future there could be some stiff competition to contend with especially with plans to expand cynical eyes responsibilities of the company already in the works when you see that just several 100 lines of cold over perform your design career a lot of serious question start popping up like what is my real value for abuse this what do i have to do today to stay relevant to morrow we use nikolai in the
9:19 am
studio as an unlimited source of new ideas like fresh ideas he's not afraid of anyone he just he just creates logos like an unlimited amount of logos we ditch you styles we show him you things for human culture in order to teach him how to create you and your images but but i have to say that with nikolai you don't need a dishonor but you do need an art director some person who will. choose the right option from the millions available russia's nicholai iran of seems to be the cutting edge of modern artificial intelligence for now he's one of a kind but who knows how many others will follow in his footsteps. while green energy is being held as the only way forward to save the planet it turns out produce think it has a major flaw with a new report by an international ngo claims the process of green energy production
9:20 am
hugely violates human rights artie's daniel hoare king's explains. we all know the score with any of you companies fossil fuels is so last century green energy is the way forward it's good for the planet and what's good for earth must be good for people right well it sounds out green as you companies can face the same challenges and be guilty of the same controller sees as their dirty cousins you cues that misconduct around the world of facts the business of human rights the source sense identified nearly 200 other geishas of abuses relating to renewable energy projects just over the last 10 years the results of the benchmarks suggest that none of the companies analyzed the currently fully meeting their responsibility to respect human rights as defined by the un guiding principles list does sound so who's behind some of those cases e.t.s. electricity they france a lot of french states are company one of the biggest the europe they claim their
9:21 am
main result is no less than saving the planet and improving people's well being you know mr on that how many chrysanthemum shampoo and a question is a backgammon and any christian to have a hoss key piece like this possibility so sad if you are not that book out there somewhere then when everyone is happy about that change one of the genus group of mexico is taking e.t.f. to court accusing them of misleading the locals in an attempt to get approval for their windfall project. but yes this is a great source of concern and unfortunately these companies continue coming here they keep lying and harassing the indigenous communities the very same communities that make an effort to conserve natural resource says this we see how easy it is for all it to be destroyed in norway a state owned company planned a wind farm in an area called stuck on the west coast of the country.
9:22 am
again locals the vision. sammy communities who rely heavily on dia grazing for their livelihoods were up in arms with us law on our remaining grazing land is being taken away from us bit by bit a huge wind farm has to be built it will destroy the pasture we need for a reindeer in winter even the un got involved back in $28.00 see the gas law wait to suspend the project examine the effects it would have on local communities more weight so as to disregard the requests and go ahead anyway after all that is use more important than dia after careful consideration the ministry has concluded that there's no basis for stopping the building of the store here wind turbines many countries have committed to kabul you try to buy 2050 or even earlier to hit those ambitious targets both countries and companies have to act fast and big they'll have to ensure they don't turn from heroes civilians as they go about their mission
9:23 am
of saving the planet journalist author and campaign and health and environmental issues all of a take help please people are so blinded by green energy they don't notice the harm they can do this is what. the problem may come to an extent because. the renewable energy sector will tend to think of itself as being the good god. and the fact that actually their operations may be causing damage may simply not have occurred you know people used to think of mining companies and fossil fuel companies and schools and huge damage. but renewable energy is thought all things being but now in this move induced a certain complacency among the companies responsible also because haps of a self belief in these companies is that they are doing good. and therefore sort of institutional blindness to the fact that their operations cause
