a dramatic drop in just one month. it's six o'clock here in moscow and you're watching r.t. international life unless you are going to. and delegation is currently holding crunch talks with the u.s. lawmakers it comes as a leaked memo suggests brussels is preparing retaliation if washington pushes ahead with new button sanctions that could hurt you appeared businesses kate partridge has the details this is all about an internal. european commission which indicates just how unhappy the brussels is over the prospect of new sanctions against russia because that they have for the you what the nie says is that the european commission is prepared to and i quote hit back at the u.s. within days if this agreement goes through and also it's european energy and other
11:02 am
companies vulnerable us interference and let's look at the range of what the sanctions will affect we're looking at it which is the big one really but beyond that there's also the financial industry there's also railways the shipping there's metals as mining but the big beef here is all about energy or oil and gas but in particular gas and the way that russia supplies lots of energy gas to central europe and in particular to germany and we've heard before from europeans about they they're not happy about the prospect that these sanctions could go through because they control effectively how europe does business and also with whom as we can hear you cannot accept the u.s. route to impose sanctions that violate international law and afflicted european companies involved in the expansion of europe's energy supply europe the supply is a matter for europe i'm not the united states of america it's up to us to decide who supplies us with energy and how according to rules of openness a market competition that must not happen we generally reject sanctions with extraterritorial fact meaning and impact on third countries if heard from the
11:03 am
kremlin spokesman dmitri prescott who also concurred to that point of view that says that these sanctions her third parties so we talk to all of them russia we consider the continuing sanctions rhetoric counterproductive it is damaging the interests of our two countries and also potentially damaging the interests of other states with which it has trade and economic relations developing despite all the negative tendencies well in the meantime we've heard from european commission you have us on who says that there's a european commission delegation in washington right now talking with the house of representatives because they'll be voting on this issue on tuesday so that just shows you how seriously how worried europe is over this new set of sanctions. we also nathan gale a member of the european parliament from the u.k. independence party what kind of measures brussels can apply to retaliate and defend its business deals with russia well i think it's time for for the e.u. to decide whether or not they want to defend europeans and european business interests and stand against a war the americans are trying to do and if they truly want to stand and defend
11:04 am
europe and nationalism then they will do that and they will say no we're not playing the games of washington any longer what can they what can they do if russia retaliates not much really over then to decide that they go to drop the sanctions because ultimately it's really only in russia and european business interests not american. u.k. as international trade secretary liam fox has accused the b.b.c. of willfully ignoring positive news on the brags that process the claim came in a letter to the broadcasters director general have he's already voiced his concerns before. to tell you in the newspaper or listen to the radio t.v. the story is done very negatively it almost is going to be impossible for us to do these trade deals if you look we spoke of rome undermines the work he's doing. well
11:05 am
mr speaker it does appear that some elements of our media would rather see britain feel than seabrooke to succeed. and i i cannot recall a single time in recent times when i have seen good economic news that the b.b.c. didn't describe those despite rick's. well he says that the b.b.c.'s putting a damper on things economically he says that when his press team calls up the b.b.c. news desks offering positive stories about brags that they choose not to cover them and he says that's hampering his ability to strike international trade deals with he's taken stock with a particular phrase that b.b.c. headlines often feature and that these two words despite brags that suggesting an element of surprise from the b.b.c. team that the country hasn't been crippled economically by its decision to leave the e.u. we've done a bit of research ourselves hair and we've counted dozens of b.b.c.
11:06 am
had lines online featuring this phrase of course liam fox he's one of the chief brags it is here in the british government so perhaps unsurprisingly this letter to the b.b.c. has really riled up the pro e.u. camp one liberal democrat politician here has accused him of acting like a tinpot dictator that accused him of trying to blame the b.b.c. for his own failures as international trade secretary and trying to strike those deals in folks isn't the first big politician here in the u.k. to express his dissatisfaction with the b.b.c.'s coverage of bragg's it issues andrey led some of the leader of the house of commons she recently said that broadcasters need to be a bit more patriotic. in the way that they approach brags that the b.b.c. has of course dismissed all of these allegations of bias they said that they don't recognize the characterization of the coverage outlined in this letter and perhaps explaining some of the gravitas with which they approach these brags that headlines
11:07 am
they have said that no organization takes coverage of the economy more seriously. the scandal over team trump's alleged collusion with russia is not running out of suspects the latest in the fine line is jarrett the president's son in law and senior adviser who survived to testify in front of the senate intelligence committee over his contacts with the russians during donald trump's presidential campaign jacqueline joins us live now to give us more detail exactly do we know what question has to say to the lawmakers well his questioning is being conducted behind closed doors but he did put out an eleven page statement before him and in that document he outright denies all accusations of moving with the russians or of having any knowledge of others and having done so along with denying having any improper contact with foreign officials outlined each interaction he had with
11:08 am
russians and the now infamous meeting with the russian attorney but the media has painted as no less than a kremlin agent now kirshner himself explained how insignificant that encounter was . by arrived at the meeting a little late when i got there the person who has since been identified as a russian attorney was talking about the issue of a ban on u.s. adoptions of russian children i had no idea why that topic was being raised and quickly determines that my time was not well spent at this meeting. now that statement goes on to describe any and every interaction he had with a russian or someone who could possibly have a russian connection at the same time cushion or also drew attention to the fact that his job during the campaign was to be the point of contact with foreign countries and therefore the four times he did encounter russians was well within his scope realistically not having any to report would have been more concerning
11:09 am
given the amount of foreign contacts he had during the campaign which he outlined as well let's take a listen i had incoming contacts with people from approximately fifteen countries to put these requests in context i must have received thousands of calls letters and e-mails from people looking to talk with meat on a variety of issues and topics including hundreds well it could be foreign government so christian or stress the fact that he had only limited contacts with russian representatives but it is likely that the hunt for wrongdoing will continue work artless ok thanks jacki for that update jacqueline very good reporting from washington d.c. . emanuel microns being accused of authoritarian rule with some party members now demanding legal action claiming there's a lack of democracy within the party for more on that his artie's charlotte do penske. this is another headache the president back on as these grassroot members of the party say that the ruling top the elite the hierarchy of his party la
11:10 am
republica almost are actually acting democratically and the gossett members say they fear that they will have no power and no say in that party in future the proposed members to the role of a supporter and exclude them from governance on both the local and national level well this is all over the new statue of the party members say that they were involved in creating that statue is written too hastily too quickly they're not clear on what it means and they feel that it's being imposed yet again. off to another precedented spat between president michael and his now former head of the french armed forces general deville is general de villiers had criticized him for proposing military cuts in two thousand and seventeen responded to that by completely demolishing the chief of staff all over the french armed forces saying
11:11 am
i'm the boss you just give it a shit if your leadership began business didn't place you would you do new government day many people in front saying that they now unhappy with the leadership style of the president describing it as being authoritarian recent poll shows that he his humble down in the approval ratings here in france losing ten points since he was elected in may that is the second largest decline so. being elected in france but of course much paul was elected on this platform that he was going to be a different kind of politician that he was going to change politics in france and people now here are saying that yes he is different but he's different in the sense that he's channeling the style of the former french imperial possed a not france's democratic president a correspondent from russia but news agency has found itself in the midst of a gunfight in mosul bots despite claims the city's been cleared of terrorists that

11:15 am
one hundred so it's well paul give. you all the. that. little bit. a little bit like. for your log i. had it on the ground long wall. one hundred. one. probably morning i did replied it all. from. the italian prime minister has hit back at neighboring countries for their handling of europe's growing migrant crisis pallo gentle only added italy won't be intimidated by criticism from other member states for his decision to take in more refugees. we will not accept lectures and still less threats such as those
11:16 am
we have heard from our neighbors in recent days we are doing our duty and expect the whole of europe to do the same alongside italy. the warning comes after austria threatened to impose border controls and deploy troops to cut the number of immigrants crossing from italy defense mrs stood by them is saying the country must be prepared to contain the influx italy has been the focal point of yours migrant crisis for months now the country has taken in almost one hundred thousand immigrants already this year that's over eighty percent of all migrant arrivals to europe and with little prospect of the number of newcomers decreasing any time soon italy italian cities and towns are deeply divided over the crisis our crew visited one such place. i've been traveling across rural parts of sicily for almost a week now speaking to locals various officials and refugees and i'll tell you what
11:17 am
some people may not be willing to admit it but italy has really been divided by the refugee crisis there are locals war ready to welcome migrants and refugees without any preconditions but there are of course others who are willing to put their livelihoods and their concerns first their lives have been hit hard by the economic crisis and they are the ones who now end up having to accommodate the refugees the most vivid example is the mayor of a small community. told me how he started a protest place that has been quiet for decades when dozens of refugees and migrants were moved into an abandoned hotel the mayor along with the locals locked away for an. hour that was being delivered into the hotel in an exclusive interview he explained to me why they did that. when there's no room there's no room we
11:18 am
followed he got huge difficulties here like unemployment issues with infrastructure and health care the community does not understand how we can accept more people when we have all these problems but. only disappointed with his own government just like pretty much everyone that's the impression that i've been getting all the people are critical with the european approach in dealing with the refugee crisis the mayor told me that he believes the countries like germany and france are trying to keep up with the status quo whereas it is italy that is getting the first of the refugee crisis and it is being left alone in dealing with this. the e.u. betrayed italy with a problem that's not a tally in pairs say actually it's totally european. we are at the forefront italy is where they arrive first but the european community doesn't seem to care some countries even closed their borders more of that exclusive interview with the mayor
11:19 am
and also my trip to the abandoned hotel that's now been turned into a refugee shelter common r. and d. for report that will be aired on r.t.e. international throughout tuesday besides the question of where to house migrants integration has become a main sticking point we discussed the matter with a community lawyer in the syrian town of the lot so where authorities plan to put migrants in an abandoned school building mosque with out of the. water putting migrants here into buildings like this is racism these kind of things make us racist the criticism from the community begins when locals realise that the migrants won't know what to do in this location so when migrants end up with nothing to do and there's someone amongst them inclined to criminal behavior it means they could start intruding getting into other houses and properties but the problem is not just this it's bigger it's about the lack of ability and opportunities to integrate so in these circumstances the refugees simply won't
11:20 am
blend into society this could lead to drug dealing issues and crime and that's reason why the community is being so critical the risk is that the shelter could turn into a ghetto a kind of concentration camp because the migrants will have nothing to do here they can't go to the seaside they can't go to the beach gym or socialize with other guys that's what we'll be telling the government. following three weeks detention a man with a severe muscle wasting disease who was convicted of armed assault in russia has been freed from jail. have had been given a four and a half year sentence but was released on health grounds he gave his first interview to r.t. . within worlds it was hard to comprehend what was going on with me i understood just one thing i'd been deprived of my life my family my relatives and i wouldn't last long at that moment i was sure i would never see my mother father my daughter my partner again i thought that all that was left to me was waiting for
11:21 am
a painful death at the detention center every single person that saw me was at a loss and shocked certainly those who worked there went straight to me as they had heard of me they came specially to see me as everyone was wondering how this could have happened they asked me but i couldn't give an answer as i couldn't understand how either. twenty eight year old on top of has a rare disease where almost all his muscles can't function he weighs just eighteen kilograms and can live with the help of others he was found guilty of armed robbery and stealing a motorbike according to the court investigation of my up and three other men forced at gunpoint the owners of the motorbike to sign of a possession the fact someone in his condition was held in a normal prison triggered huge public outrage several petitions were launched calling for my other release which gathered almost one hundred thousand signatures senators and politicians also waded in along with russia's commissioner for human rights despite being released on health grounds his conviction still stands
