to have a company you're with us the international. after months of an army offensive eastern ukraine looks devastated schools hospitals apartment blocks and houses are either badly damaged or completely destroyed but as anti-government forces drive troops away people are getting the chance to come out of hiding and to start rebuilding what's been wrecked. the first he didn't. even address. the weavers in the market. the most. even if. well local fighters are currently carrying out a military operation they say is and protecting the population here's how the fighting has been unfolding against in the. screeches here the focus of what calls
an anti terror operation where anti-government forces used to control this territory here but army troops forced them out closer to the regional capital capitals and fighters now say this area in orange is under their control and they're driving the army out in the past few days they did manage to seize around a dozen towns ukrainian army is surrounded in several locations you can see here in the latest incident hundreds of soldiers were encircled but were allowed to leave through humanitarian corridors right now and government forces are closing in on the port city of mariupol down here they say they've blocked all the roads leading in and out of the city however no offensive has been planned to report on what the civilian population is going through during here to solve what many feared could happen each happening in the constant bombardment of the guns has destroyed
buildings empty street and populated basements. every time we visit we find more people sheltering underground a cold and humid room three meters down is the only place these people feel safe that you know you think you know or that you even heard from the pointer tell anything like don't loom given what that truck was to. police here in the world would we need to have. you stay tuned. this is a soviet era bomb shelter built during the cold war but until now it hadn't been used. because those. clashes a role so intensifying around the guns goal is to surround the city and cut off the anti-government forces from their bases people from the embattled areas surrounding
the guns are among those seeking refuge from the fierce fighting which has overwhelmed their homes by the you're heading up on to. make a summer did you get a studio to ship the ocean or last march accession of radius of the moon within the confidence when a lot of news for thought but a mission of when the because family celebrate the birthday of one of the younger members the also good thing is that they have finally found some kind of safety and it will not cheat was what you did need. to do you know it is two words put it on one with both of the equation in order for i see that you are all just little know how it's done. in the not to shake it up andree used to love playing war like old boys of his age questionable a lot but not anymore. andrey shows me what he found in their back
yard after another shelling these tiny little metal guards are sprayed from so-called flechette shells which are internationally banned gives large scale military operation here in eastern ukraine has lost almost five months so far as more destruction is caused and the casualties rise people's pain feeds the endor and many fear when the guns fall silent he queen will not be able to overcome the consequences of what has happened here. in eastern ukraine. in the meantime human rights watch says three hundred civilians have died in the ganske since may as a result of indiscriminate bombings members of the organization just back from the city say many attacks were carried out in populated areas indiscriminate attacks are a violation of international rule. and he government leaders in the yes going against regions have said that their position on establishing ties with kiev and
the conditions that need to be met you can get more on this story at r.t. dot com. i went to iraq forces are advancing on jihadists from the islamic state that have occupied the northwest of the country with the help of u.s. airstrikes and share volunteers they have managed to take over a militant stronghold killing three senior fighters meanwhile western leaders are raising the alarm over a possible jihadist attacks on europe pain and american soil it has prompted a wider debate over the west taking on the islamic state parties mean of course that of the us that some of their proposed solutions. as more countries admit they're up against an abstract threats from international fighters join an islamic state it's more important than ever to find a common solution i don't want to put the cart before the. we don't have a strategy yet there's no point in me asking for. action on the part of congress
before i know exactly what it is that is going to be required for us to get the job in. america might not know what to do gets but germany seems to have an idea to spend seventy million euros arming kurdish forces to deter islamic state militants in iraq where it's believed some four hundred radicalized germans are fighting by the government down didn't the terrorists use control over an area to create a base for their reign of terror and to retreat rather fanatics this creates a danger for us it affects our security interests but this gets an even more involved a viable way forward i'm not sure if the kurds especially if there are influences from the p.k. k p k k is known to be a terrorist organization the p.k. k. is on the terrorists for both the european union and for the united states if the p.k. is receiving weapons from the germans then i think we are about to repeat
a major mistake of being once again the wrong side here in the u.k. fears have been growing since soldier lee rigby was slaughtered in london now with the beheading of an american journalist suspected birth. and revelations that one of these lawmakers states he financier's was the director of a muslim faith school in the city of birmingham brought so want to feel safe and they want the government to take drastic measures it is apparent that people who declare allegiance elsewhere able to return to the united kingdom and pose a threat to our national security we are clear in principle what we need is a targeted discretionary power to allow us to exclude british nationals from the u.k. . cameron spline tearing up passports from door nationals and bannan fighters from returning home from foreign conflicts according to you gov two thirds of british people support taken away citizenship from known radicals although it's claimed that. hasn't worked before april two thousand and fourteen the reason may started
confiscating passports using the war so they've been doing this exact measure they're talking about for an extended period of time already in many many cases but they we hash here and they bring out is now legislation so that they can look like they're being proactive against the isis issue when really they're just trying failed policies world leaders seem to caught off guard by increasingly militarized and the well funded islamic state jihad this core stealing a march through iraq and syria while abroad politicians should nervously to avoid sending their soldiers back into the middle east but delays and decisiveness could ignite the time bomb that will bring the terrorists to them marina cost of a reporter from london for artsy. well the flow of jihadi volunteers from the has sparked some radical ideas from western officials the mayor of london has even proposed labeling anyone who travels to iraq and syria without telling authorities
as a terrorist until they prove their innocence the idea found little support with more than half of those surveyed saying no to the plan political and social commentator mohamed and believes only a change in foreign policy will help matters firstly the fact that we have this return of control orders and t. pims i think but before you can we get to that stage people are wondering how when somebody is returning from syria or from the middle east are we going to assess whether they've been involved in any kind of radicalization any kind of terrorism or have in fact been fighting as you how do you think the problem has been that our policy on counter radicalization counter extremism has sensibly failed failed to intercept the failed around seven seven it's continued to fail seeing people who are under surveillance going overseas to fight as they see it in an ideological than an intellectual or spiritual jihad overseas so we have
a domestic policy which is centered around the home office which is mired in controversy. with tensions in gaza still high we look at the plight of palestinians as they face years of rebuilding after israel's military crackdown that amol off a quick bright. look differently here in syria and now many of the members of congress of both parties who have gone to syria in recent months have said they believe he's a reformer a little bit mr president the senate which is diddy's time for him to go to sleep and still be at peace to syria is going to be such a step down. please . they all told me my language as well but i will only react to
situations i have read the reports so i'm likely to put the no i will leave them to the state department to comment on your latter point of the month to please or carry out a car is on a dog you know god i. hope they do no more weasel words when you made a direct question are you prepared for a change when you throw a punch be ready for a. printout of speech and a little bit on the freedom to crush. one tons it's a political issue in this country any time and somebody raises the issue from control the media we can attack us but it is a. skirmish of some sort of a person twenty five or thirty years of a person they don't see themselves living beyond these young people saying that they will not live past twenty five or thirty years old victim someone feel good or
used to this almost four. hundred thousand. hello again now israel's military campaigns against hamas have left the palestinian territories shattered this is the result of the most recent assault thousands of houses wiped out in weeks of conflict you can see here that where the land was green with the buildings there is now only shell craters and sand an assessment put the cost of rebuilding at over six billion dollars well the u.n. and a number of international organizations have published the figures operation protective edge claimed the lives of more than two thousand palestinians including women and children israel itself lost seventy two people most of them soldiers or seventeen
thousand houses were destroyed or badly damaged in the recent campaign seventy five thousand homes are needed to cover the total housing deficit disaster relief organization linked to the u.n. says it will take more than twenty years to rebuild the infrastructure and i host an isa now i asked british m.p. george galloway who he believes is to blame for events in recent months do you think that the israeli government is the only responsible side for the recent violence that we've seen what about how did they bear responsibility for the violence. while the palestinian resistance has for almost seventy years being trying to restore their country to them up it was wiped off the map and the palestinian people's scattered to the four corners of the earth no nobody would accept that you wouldn't accept my country wouldn't accept it if foreigners come and steal your country and wipe off the map and figure out and drive you out you're
going to struggle to return and it is the legal moral right of the palestinian people to resist the occupation of their country. it is the first interview george galloway gave after being attacked in london apparently for his comments on israel he shared that story tape with anita now i was in the street around seven thirty seven thirty five in the evening it was broad daylight out of nowhere dressed in israel defense force short complete with. came trotting up me cursing and swearing and shouting. support for israel and opposition to my views on israel and then a torrent. punches and kicks the man was a ploy israel fanatic. his book that morning. and his
words he would like to cut my throat. amount of says it like to cut your throat and then dresses for the occasional an israel defense force to shot. on the street near where you live has probably a serious intention to do you. get a chance to watch in an hour for all the latest stories you won't find in the mainstream media that share the show as monday to thursday here on r.t. . do you fancy getting your hands on a bit of cosmic history to space the by the first dogs in space are up for auction it was used by the soviets december. into the atmosphere and back again safely and it's up for auction for around eight thousand euros your piece can off looks back at the history of the first space pops. they're world famous for going to space and back before humans could ever start exploring the cosmos in one thousand nine
hundred sixty two strays. made space history by spending over twenty five hours in orbit and making it back home alive the first creatures ever sent outside the earth's atmosphere and for such a long time to be for them though dozens of dogs took part in soviet spaceflight experiments and i can tell you without them the u.s.s.r. would have never been able to send the first man into orbit by hearing which is dead and gone for instance became the first to reach the upper levels of the earth's atmosphere but they're a twenty minute flight was rough extreme turbulence and zero gravity but they landed safely and alive wasn't so lucky the vehicle decompressed and the animals suffocated but it's mainly because of that incident that space suits were introduced and that led to the first canine spacewalk lisa became the first live animal ever to float outside a craft in a space suit she came back alive and well and gave birth to some healthy puppies to moshe's trip had an extra twist her landing pad got lost in
a storm scientists took two days to find it because a herdsman store her colored parachute dog was ok but the breakthrough in space came with like her mission is also probably the saddest she became the first ever animal to get into orbit but stressed and overheating meant she died a few hours into the flight but let me tell you the scientists involved including the head of the soviet space program took these dogs to heart and cherish them as spetz so it was a brief adventure for some of the man's best friends led to some giant leaps for mankind. i'm staying with something that's also after this world watching this video you might think it's a lady in springfield on earth but in fact i have no fear as the construction of a brand new headquarters for a u.s. tech giant head online to learn the space age building. also at a web site a kurdish oil tanker that had been missing for days is located by satellite off the
coast of america go online to find out why the vessel with its hundred million dollars cargo has been avoiding detection. the. right to see. her straight. and i think you're. on the record with her. instrument. in pakistan's capital turmoil has broken access that is is of people marched on government buildings it follows two weeks of mass opposition rallies against the cut across the country the opposition accuse the prime minister nawaz sharif's of rigging last year's general election and the demanding he steps down we spoke to an
expert on pakistan about what is behind the unrest. it's quite unfortunate to see that to you to repeat it military intervention bureaucratic structure. due to corruption in the political and civil and military groups receive. pretty good students to develop and flourish and that has actually we can do pretty practices what we see in the recent days that is actually a manifestation of people's lack of confidence in democratic practices of a newly a recently more recently elected government as has been put in just a just situation which you would actually do when you go to the democratic situation that this is in pakistan rather me if as the stated military intervention so yes the result warning sign didn't use a lot of concern about how long the government would be able to sustain. that let's
have a quick look now at some other international news starting in somalia where the u.s. military has carried out a counterterrorism operation against al shabaab militants the pentagon gave no further details about the clandestine operation and didn't say if it was successful local media reports suggest u.s. drones fired missiles near a militant stronghold african and somali forces have regained several towns this year but the al qaeda linked group still holds large areas of the country. star thirty liberia's largest hospital have gone on strike demanding better pay and proper equipment to deal with the above and great nurses are refusing to return to work until they are supplied with protective suits health workers also protested in sierra leone and guinea meanwhile a suspected case was reported in sweden and the first case of the deadly virus was confirmed in senegal last week almost fifteen hundred deaths have been recorded since the outbreak across west africa. right.
now memorial services can. beslan southern russia marking ten years since a terrorist attack on a school there throughout the night candles were lit in remembrance of more than three hundred victims most of them children and their mothers on tuesday an exhibition devoted to the tragedy is planned to take place on the first of september two thousand and four around a thousand people were taken hostage by chechen militants and held captive for three days deprived of food and water. we will be bringing you more coverage of the more of the vents throughout the day also r.t. spoke to the only terrorist to have survived the beslan atrocity if you watch this report later today here on r.t. international all of this is going all day long and you all. know. that you know. this is the.
history of science and. science isn't going through all of them and there's an introductory lot of much of the concern is that your stance. neutral. in the ship that it's being. now if you find yourself heading to berlin any time soon you might want to travel light or get a helping hand to carry your luggage locals in the german capital are demanding a ban on the use of seat cases with whales saying this kind of baggage robs them of sleep. it's got the story. every year thousands of tourists flock here to the german capital but billions reputation as a cool destination for a city break has seen those numbers increase along with the tourists comes the
luggage and one type of luggage in particular is causing consternation and some of the neighborhoods suitcases on wheels combined with cobbled streets has resulted in local residents complaining about the noise late at night and early in the morning in fact there's been so many complaints that the mayor of the region of berlin has actually said the bag should be banned out right that's not something the tourists themselves particularly agree with. i cannot carry heavy items and it would be impossible for me to travel with a twenty kilograms suitcase without wheels. my opinion it's stupid idea but i don't know the people who live in quotes back probably they have another opinion and so it's their decision but i think i want to go through but. i think it's an overreaction it would make no sense does it just quiet so we'll see lots of peace in the streets with this new the surface perhaps other possibilities should be
looked at first for making this long at times tempers flared over this issue we've seen some graffiti around the city that say things like you are not and even as far as the tourists first whether they like them or not needs the tourism industry and invariably those tourists come with suitcases. that would have wheels the trail of a germany. up ahead max kaiser explains how the advance of islamic state militants in iraq and syria is affecting global finances you're watching.
world. science technology innovation all the moves developments from around russia we've got the future covered. play. play. safe leave the. economic ups and downs in the final months day the london new york and the rest look like it's going be a single day every week to help a player live king. play
i'm max keiser welcome to the kaiser report yet what happens when as we saw after world war one a bunch of european countries just show up in the middle east and draw lines all over the map and say oh he's in the new countries we don't care about the history culture well less for twenty four and you end up with islamic state or isis station exactly a max it looks like pops to some do it republicans are right it looks like we might have an islamic state in the world islamic state now resembles the taliban with oil fields the islamic state which now controls an area of iraq and syria larger than the u.k. maybe raising more than two million dollars a day in revenue from oil sales extortion taxes and smuggling according to u.s. intelligence officials and anti-terrorism finance experts so it sounds to me like it's running its operations.
