morning on friday here in the russian capital thanks for joining us. first joined russia china drills in european water today in the baltic sea the military exercise between the two countries will last for a full week however even before it starts getting. strong reaction. western media is in a spin over the joint the twenty seven thousand naval drills starting today between russia and china headlines have been lifted with words like invasion and war warning of a challenge to nato so what sparked the panic well first of all it's the location in the baltic sea right in the heart of northern europe and next to nato bases
secondly chinese warships are making their debut tour in this part of the world and if that wasn't threatening enough they're teaming up with russia but jointly drills are nothing new they've been held annually since twenty twelve but this first stage off the baltic coast has already caused a frenzy as a trio of chinese vessels made their way there leaving the british danish navy's scrambling to shadow them out of their waters much to the amusement of the russian ambassador to china the baltic states repeat their usual incantations but at the same time they take for granted the fact that nato is deploying large forces on their territory but then wasn't this response predictable in october last year a russian fleet sailing around europe sparked headlines like the leading some european states to even consider sending vessels to intercept the group and this fear of a russian ship has been around for some time already you can just ask sweden
a country that spent twenty years insisting that russian submarines were sneaking around its coastline until they realized that the only thing lurking there minks now we can confirm that as of this moment no minks all scheduled to take part in joint c. twenty seven c. meanwhile the u.s. and allied countries have just finished their own massive exercises in that region say the guardian took place in eastern europe on the territory of three countries are still aimed at deterring so-called russian aggression some. twenty five thousand personnel from more than twenty states participated in the biggest drills of their kind in five years and spoke to writer and political commentator john white. propaganda campian is being conducted in the western media to try and paint russia as a kind of evil empire. of cold war drums and to try and demonize both countries
we're only getting by there that they're right to seal in international waters and do nothing wrong nothing illegal but the western media is to say to try and inflame the situation is a see as part of this ongoing cold war part of the game that we've seen through few years. a police officer in the u.s. state of baltimore has mistakenly caught himself on camera staging a drug bust a video shot in january shows the officer planting drugs in the backyard of a house alongside two colleagues you are seeing right there in the footage the officer then leaves the area to turn his body camera on though forgetting the unit's a set up to recall the last thirty seconds before manual activation then returns to the scene where the drugs were buried to quote discover them an internal investigation is now underway and the people arrested for the drug possession have been released. state attorney defended the judicial system and her office saying
they want to aware of the videos existence critics or question why the officers would choose to fake a crime and the city's already struggling with lauren order as it is. the city's embody america never been to a more depressing lead in the city of baltimore baltimore struggles with a high murder rate. murder that will. yes baltimore there is a robust active crime strategy. this week. that we need your help.
but. we also spoke with a former policeman who believes the real issue is with more than just police officers. well i don't think cops are the problem in baltimore there's a miscommunication among police officers in the community all over the united states of america i think one thing that needs to happen is that we as launch force
meant we are to get out and really really work with the community there was an officer who planted some drugs in the community and since a negative signal not just to the police the whole says the community as a whole it made sense on the. italy seeks help from the e.u. to cope with the daily influx of migrants austria's foreign minister has urged rome not to allow the newcomers to make it to the mainland is even declared that even if they are plucked from the sea they shouldn't get quote a ticket to central europe and that's as the mayor of palermo said the indifference of some states on the block to the crisis equates to fascism liberal europe will be under trial for genocide in little dubious second trial maybe not in the courts but in the history books because of this genocide in the midst rainy and
seamless because of the indifference of certain states in the european union has the european union has to recognize freedom of movement as a human rights is very serious and i think the european union should. be ashamed. italy has witnessed a record number of migrants arriving almost ninety thousand since january and more than two hundred twenty thousand are expected by year's end local authorities are trying to find a solution but as artie's illiterate trying to reports from sicily it is certainly proving a struggle migrants keep coming in for solutions not really the local mayors are desperate for help from the central government and the e.u. but they're not getting it so they decided to get together right there to see what they can do about it for fairness. and so of course they won't be anything like that. the migrant crisis was caused by run of
european policy tim i blame our government call this persistently the migrants primary destination after crossing the mediterranean and messina the ferry gateway to mainland italy the issue is super delegate and urgent and the meeting is happening behind closed doors. just. tell them not to come in and it's ok. thank you how many people are taken part in this meeting over five police officers and about forty good one officials of the forty mayors of local towns and ours together with the local governor but these aren't the people who are talking to the big officials of the let's see what they have to say about that i was told that the meeting is going to be over soon.
took. at least. the migrants are victims of tragedies in their homeland but our communities are paying the price too and we're not getting the necessary help. we've heard a lot of from the use but barely anything is being done we're all alone the mayors are facing growing pressure on the one hand after several protests they're here to save the day for their small communities on the other hand their best not to be labeled racists and the migrant issues very very urgent for regions it's all about the numbers the quota agreement of two point four of migrants per thousand citizens has been violated several times. here initially we're trying to divert the flow of migrants and spread them across communities we asked the e.u. to do the same but they're turning their backs on us haven't spoken to officials in this building you get the impression that they're ready to make compromises they're
ready to think several steps forward and they're ready to sort out the issues themselves when it comes to the long awaited assistance from the you in that obviously they have completely lost their trust. around fifty muslim protesters are said to have been injured after clashes with police fled overnight in jerusalem three sustained serious injuries one requiring surgery during the clashes palestinians could be seen launching five works and taunting police the protests erupted after israeli authorities are going to install security cameras and metal detectors at the revered mosque following a deadly shooting there last week. in the meantime a palestinian spiritual leaders demanding the new security measures are removed from the site also known as the temple mount he warned the situation could get much worse if the demands are not met before friday prayers and we spoke to the archbishop of the jerusalem orthodox church who says that palestinian christians
are in solidarity with most. took a look at her hellish didion's oppose the israeli government's measures which interfere with worship in some mosque palestinian christians in jerusalem and throughout the holy land express their solidarity with muslims who have the right to demand the lifting of limitations on attending the mosque palestinian muslims and christians stand side by side hostile actions against affects the whole palestinian nation both muslims and christians we demand of the metal detectors that are limiting muslims the right to access the mosque freely should be removed arab countries are taking a week of suspicious that some of them are not even talking about what's happening in jerusalem it's that those who are financing terrorism in syria iraq libya yemen aren't saying a thing about jerusalem they don't remember jerusalem because they don't think about palestine and the palestinian problem that they are spending the billions of
dollars to continue the wars that are causing destruction at the in a was a busy day for news here on our international thanks for joining us so far just a moment here you're going to find out why donald trump is having a second thoughts about his attorney general back in just. one else seem wrong but. just don't. let me. get to shape out this day because etiquette and it. equals the trail. when something is find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground. most people think. you need to be the first one on top of the story or the person
with the loudest voice of the biggest read. to stand. you just the right questions and the right answers. thanks for joining us here for you and yours donald trump says he would never have appointed his attorney general had he known jeff sessions would recuse himself from overseeing the rush or investigation and from the change of heart by the u.s. president however donald trump has never hidden the fact that he wants to be unpredictable. i want to be unpredictable unpredictable i use the word
unpredictable but i like to be unpredictable you want to be unpredictable unlike our country where we're totally predictable some find it increasingly difficult to follow the president's stance also use caleb maupin hit the streets of new york to find out if americans really no way trump stands on the key issues that will trump is a man whose policy positions can be quite hard to pin down we decided to talk to americans and find out how well they know their commander in chief and where he stands donald trump says it was a good idea to pick jeff sessions i think what he said is. that if he knew jeff sessions would with he was in never would have chosen him regrets put it up as attorney general i think would down jump it's all about business so he my. president donald trump has confidence in attorney general jeff sessions do you think he likes jeff sessions trust jeff sessions or or doesn't. i think he uses
jeff sessions. so the neutral it's all rational gratian i don't think you regret it because he's still in office sessions should have never refused him self and if he was going to recuse himself he should have told me before he took the job and i would have picked somebody else donald trump thinks china is a good partner i think anybody is a good partner who will pad his pockets and pad the pockets of his spamtrap will partner with anyone that will enrich his coffers if we can't continue to allow china to rape our country and that's what they're doing isn't giving us to partner with china again i'm really not so sure he's thinking about china i don't think he wants to partner with them for say i do think he will be able to do anything even with china but you. have. to say that. you know you. and. so you can have
a relationship what's his position on cooperating with russia around issues of cyber security i think he the statement i remember reading it was that he wanted to create with russia some kind of overall cyber security a i think based on his relationship with russia maybe i do think he will want to partner with because that would mean thing when it came the election. the fact president putin and i discussed a cyber security unit doesn't mean i think it can happen it can't but a ceasefire can and did he's going to partner with russia on cyber security no. hootin and i discussed forming an impenetrable cyber security unit so that election hacking and many other negative things will be guarded now some might think that donald trump's unpredictability might be an asset when negotiating with foreign leaders however sometimes it appears that his supporters are just as confused as
his adversaries. are t. new york former u.s. diplomat believes trump's inconsistency is just a way of keeping his critics guessing i think they are sometimes difficult to pick during the campaign someone said that the american voters took him seriously but not literally that he would express things in somewhat different ways that maybe seem contradictory sometime maybe is a little bit of an annoyance for them sometimes especially if they feel they need to answer literally here and say sean spicer is position or kellyanne conway is position they say what trump said this or that he said that how do you explain it and maybe it puts them on the spot the bigger issue is whether he keeps his critics off balance and i think this is part of how he does it. this is the international france's official presidential portrait has never posed much of a problem until the latest incumbent emanuel mccrone who now wants
thank you so our summers in full swing and you may be wondering where you can kick back and catch some rays ati's that mackellar frost aside jaco visited one of russia's most popular seaside getaways. we are now in arab russia a warm spot in the south region of russia called krasnodar this place is located on the southeastern tip of the black sea but across from crimea which makes it a great russian summer getaway and it was filled with fresh fruits seafood restaurants lots of russian history windsurfing beaches you name it and now it has it all. and just a few months ago a new international airport has opened up in an hour and we're about to check it out let's go. and.
get the deal with afternoon live in new glad to meet you let's go to. what makes it. different or on the same level as international there. are grandmamma's the ship and it's you can also do both but the main thing is the right combination of the airport technologies you have to go through everything intuitively understanding where you are going there is navigation but everything should progress logically about what happens to your inspection cells registration registration a second inspections of shops commerce and technology when you have this right it allows a person to be in a comfortable zone then you need to control the expectations of the passenger and then he feels relaxed that if a person knows what will happen to him and gets more than he expects that he feels
calm and we get good feedback on how everything is organized and that's the secret you know this is that's a secret that is emotionally and because i mean think of it. the head chef of a local italian restaurant who literally changed local tastes and food culture for the better. i can turn to instill a culture of. my italian experience to teach people to eat tasty food and enjoy a solid service on friday so we can't leave it but i say it's. my impression of a nap i was a very perfect summer getaway very tourist friendly lots of lovely people the warm hospitality of the russian south back together with great food and lots of things to do and see so when you'll be planning your next adventure consider a place like no other reporting out of an upper russia miguel francis jaago artsy.
was for us to make it as transparent visible for those people as we possibly could so we thought well you know let's do an experiment. let's take it in and it's really crazy. how many. people just completely unaware of what they're agreed to with you could literally anything you want to condition those people just don't read it that will be agreed to also. thanks for joining us so far on this friday here on r.t. international coming up next on this network the time for geopolitics to take center stage with the gang on cross talk opinions on attitudes you will not hear anywhere else.

imagine being thirty five and you have a. career and career involves using your eyes filling your computer and things like that in an office and perhaps you sort of getting going it's circular to have to stop doing all this in this tell you lou the minutes must be from my world became smaller and smaller and smaller until i ended up loving it and the box. around it a very strong magnetic field on the card in my head. think of it like a real hard pressure my skin burned and that wireless access point out there just continues on saying with our students in the schools. we are just continually bathing our citizens in this microwave radiation it is certainly electro small and
it's getting worse. it's seemed wrong all right old just don't call. any of these yet to shape out these days become educated and in again equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart when she's to look for common ground. hello and welcome to crossfire where all things are considered i'm teetotal of like
a bad cold you can't shake the neo cons are back and they're back with a vengeance long associated with the extremist wing of the g.o.p. and tied to catastrophic policy failures they have now found themselves being embraced by the democrats and the liberal media it would seem being anti russia attracts strange bedfellows. cross-talk in the return of the neo cons i'm joined by my guest george samuel in new york he is a fellow at the global policy institute of london metropolitan university and author of the book bombs for peace in washington we have michael maloof he is a former senior security policy analyst in the office of the secretary of defense and in toronto we have andrew moran he is a libertarian writer journalist and author of the war on cash right gentlemen cross-like rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want and i always appreciate michael let me go to you first in washington i think when i say that the
term neo con you know who i'm talking about what group of people i'm talking about particularly since you probably were working with them during the start of the illegal war against iraq they were their road record their track history is abysmal i mean catastrophic the body count is high the prestigious loss is enormous and the drain on the treasury is almost hard to imagine but michael they're still in business how does a track record to fail you keep you on the major networks on the cable stations and on the main opinion pages of the papers of record how do. that happen well in this town it's trying to remain relevant and i think that's what the neo cons of done by glomming on with the the hawkish liberals in this town and the by that i mean they they all supported hillary and certainly because they were very very anti trump it wasn't that they were so.
