ninety five ninety six russian athletes from different. according to published in the us media. a very warm welcome to you from all of us here and. we have your latest. by the latest u.n. security council sanctions targeting north korea he says the new resolution is nothing to write home about. we think it's just another very small step. not a big deal rex and i were just discussing. not big i don't know but has any impact but certainly it was nice to get
a fifteen to nothing vote but those sanctions are nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen well it's certainly disturbing to hear these words from donald trump in the aftermath of a vote at the u.n. security council that was widely perceived as a victory for diplomacy the words that we heard from u.s. leaders on the floor of the security council were rather diplomatic and favorable to peace and cooperation at this point we're hearing u.s. leaders again talking harsh talking about the possibility of sanctions against russia and against china if they don't comply with the new u.n. resolution if china doesn't follow the sanctions we will put additional sanctions on them and prevent them from accessing the u.s. and international dollar system and that's quite meaningful so now we have these words from trump downplaying the u.n. resolution and many people whose hopes had really been raised for peace and diplomacy being victorious well those hopes are starting to dampen the are starting
to be some some fear that perhaps once again we are in the danger of a global conflict or some kind of war breaking out in the crisis in the korean peninsula could be once again intensifying despite what was seen as a step forward for diplomacy and international cooperation this is just another dip on the roller coaster and saying this seems every week with the war rhetoric goes up very high than than maybe this one conciliatory talk some cooperation some diplomacy and then more threats of military force and it's really hard to know what to make of this yes we do have a positive that is the regional u.s. draft was watered down considerably it was acceptable to the russians of the chinese but then we have this fire breathing talk coming from young beginning we don't know what the next step is going to be the real question is. going to be when do we actually get to a diplomatic track that allows both sides to step down and to my mind that's got to be something like the double three s proposal that china has put forward the
russians agree with but is absolutely unacceptable to washington it seems not only the white house thus dissatisfied with the new sanctions is not too happy either north korea's ambassador to russia says it's did a new journal to believe that the north will break on to the sanctions. we've been on the u.s. sanctions for ten years it was the u.s. that instigated the u.n. security council to come up with more resolutions on sanctions against north korea so we used to living in such conditions and we still managed to achieve everything we wanted if washington things will bend under these new measures and change our position is delusional or filmmaker john pilger believes that the problem lies not with pyongyang. the problem is not north korea the problem is not russia of the problem is not china of the problem is the united states the problem for the rest of the world actually now is the containment the united states sanctions are
relevant in the sense to this whole debate what is needed is a peace treaty with north korea between the united states and north korea and the government in seoul but where it's all heading is the most worrying thing of all. or gusts of turn violent in paris where people have taken to the streets to vent their anger at the french president's labor reforms which are said to be adopted this month four thousand separate strikes in almost two hundred rallies have rocked major cities all across the country projectiles and flares with thrown at the paris protest. i.
was forced out of that i thought. opponents of the reform are angry as it gives employee is more power to negotiate conditions it limits compensation for dismissal and mergers workers counts as. a boycott now reports from the paris press. one of the big these papers here in france and i know. these are the biggest street protests he takes place in evidence he was elected president. people there are very i'm on the label or that he wants to implement he wants to shake up the job market and make it easier to hire and by now you think. this is out on the
unemployment rate here in front. of the rates in the u.k. and germany all that was we can see you say that they believe that this represents the likes of the employers in front i know it's really. just this lure is anti social because it's. good but in the world this law doesn't provide workers with rights to work doesn't give privileges in both the public and the private sector as we defend the interests of workers what conditions retirement should proceed to the full thanks eighteen million workers the majority of french workers will significantly limit their rights to make it easier to find people even when it's not justified the first week being built by the showdown between the president business president who's come to power wanting to shake up
the job market bonds the trade union movement he was the last of which he would not say. that the plan for this. rushed through. over the next week. so only a few months at the helm and president approval ratings have taken a nosedive and his recent assessment of the protesters will just deliver a fresh blow to his pop.
along with civilians a syrian army brigade was trapped inside yet as old during the siege it held and defended several blocks over the city including a crucial. port and we managed to talk to the bases chief commander. so it goes off to a seizure was also a report of storm the airport this siege was quite severe since i still terrorists attacked the airport and other military units daily we had an operation when everyone knew understood. their role the soldier that just rolled the leaders were side by side with the soldiers we fought to the death none of our soldiers ran away and we defeated i saw their bodies were in the ground even before the siege was broken we received munitions by air drop because all the road was one of her i still control and using those munitions we fought to isolate one they weren't able
to break any on minds hundreds of them were killed all their attacks against the airport say even when using car bombs suicide attacks we faced them down bravely. another front in the effort to rid syria of terrorism is raka where i saw is also on the back foot documentary traveled to the scene of fierce clashes to film those who are battling islamic state. that is just below the and then we'll hear more. from. the. rock is now surrounded by u.s.
backed syrian democratic forces consisting mainly of kurdish militias clashes are ongoing as the terrorists are still in control of a few blocks of the city and spoke to the director of the documentary about what her team went through during the filming when we went to make this film we had no idea what we're going to come across we had literally no idea when we started to build our story. three points are on the road to rock and the first point was the medical point the second point was the women's point and the foreign volunteers point. of the one quality of the unites all of them is the very altruistic they're very idealistic anybody wanted to criticize them they would say well they're coming like foreign militias to fight a war that's not theirs but it says they mean they think it's their war i says
acting community every country and it's like people are paying attention for one day two days and acting as if everything will be normal. no that's not we were attacked several times there was snipers usually so the main problems around iraq are snipers and mines and the drones the little drones that isis sons with little grenades so they drop the grenade and groups boards and so there is actually one that i talked while we were not have been on a permission yet we were about to go to operation. the grenade exploded in midair so it dropped from it didn't calculate the height so if it fell lower it would be done.
the most shocking story was one that happened when it got to be morning and when everything got to be peaceful and all of a sudden someone showed up with a huge sword. and started beating random things isis just executed through a few minutes or maybe an hour ago his three kids all of a sudden maybe two minutes later we heard screaming and he just started running to the isis space just started running there without a rifle just with a with a sword i think they can strike from the americans because they probably sold them on the satellite so they were isis. you know was one of the medics said that we were filming. we were the only generation that will never say we want to go back to the days when we were young. and it's true. well. one of the key. next monday.
i. that's a drawing us here for your news on r.t. ninety five of ninety six russian are the leads from nine different sports have reportedly been cleared of any wrongdoing by water that's according to a letter published in the us media will also use cape rogers now joining us live here in the studio to discuss this it is awfully intriguing kate what do we learn from this letter when indeed this letter was from an internal water report want to
be in the world anti doping agency and that is that to be said that going by insufficient evidence that's the key phrase here that ninety five ninety six russian athletes that have been implicated across nine different sports lead now being cleared so as we know this is something that's been hanging around for wasn't the macao report they gave evidence of apparently there are occasions of state sponsored doping and everything then has been carried on from there but we have had some early questioning is all of them a car report if i look through something i actually reported on myself in february the i.o.c. actually the international olympic committee they'd also raise questions about the macau report and they asked fifty six different questions of a whole table of these particular questions that we did that we saw that being that we'd managed to get hold of being presented to us questioning the different or saudis and people that have been implicated in this report aside from the athletes because mclaren is as we said allegations of state sponsored doping and the i.o.c. if they'd questioned so many of these allegations as well the key point that they
had used is how to demonstrate that came up time and time again based on those allegations so that the have been rumblings that some of these allegations that some of the athletes implicated we're talking about a lot of athletes i mean much higher in initially said that a thousand russian athletes across thirty different sports were implicated because that then meant as part of those findings that we ended up with blanket bans over big events as well i mean if you look at how they affected the paralympics all the russian team couldn't go to the paralympics they were effectively banned and also one hundred eighteen russian fleet. on the rio games also didn't go so if we look at all those parties the blanket bans how it affected those who were guilty and of course those who are innocent as well have been affected over the past couple of years it's not down to how the process continues going to find these athletes have effectively been given the all clear by wada so now it's a case of all the international sporting federations coming together saying that's rubbish stop this that's what i cases for to get the rest of the athletes. one might hope it's not a case of too little too late. thanks very much thank you. another all comes on
the back of a russian cyclists launching a court case against water over their bans professor of sociology at aston university ellis cashmore says wada will have a hard time defending themselves warned that is that what i did doping agency will want to stifle this the very last thing they want is to have to go to court to defend its. defend its decisions i mean. you mongoose lee big decisions what i needed to gauge is he really wants to get rid of this he wants to try to bury this and make it go away now it really depends on just how prepared they are to dig in their heels they presumably have teams of lawyers behind them and ride to the bitter end and he will be a case where mclaren is forced to disclose his evidence and that will be very interesting. the german elections now less than two weeks away media outlets have
been chasing down a russian hackers for whom as they assume it's high time to be meddling in the european powerhouses owed in a washington post article one the security expert is quoted as saying that it just doesn't feel right that the russians happened struck get the report goes on to suggest that the reason for the no show might be that germany has finally nailed the art of cyber security it also states that no evidence of any attempted meddling has actually been detected. takes a closer look. if you haven't been in a coma for the past year you've likely heard a thing or two about alleged russian interference in america's recent presidential election the cia has concluded russian hackers intervened in the u.s. election with the purpose of helping donald trump when packing and leaking that the administration says the russians carried out connect the dots russia did it and while those claims were never backed up by any solid evidence just
a lot of speculation and hearty assurances that hasn't stopped the world from pointing the finger at moscow and also predicting that the big bad kremlin would do the same again in europe the russian hacker scene is huge german security agencies and cyber experts are alarmed own evidence points to russia that's why we cannot rule it out why we are preparing for a similar efforts to influence germany's election many warn that the upcoming german elections would be a prime target for those pesky russian hackers so security was bumped up and investigations were launched but even a year long search by german intelligence for potential russian interference failed to uncover any evidence of kremlin backed meddling or not though that hasn't stopped anyone from seeing russia as democracies enemy number one a recent article by the washington post examines what sinister implications there could be behind the fact that we have yet to see moscow's hand trying to steer berlin's vote it's just not an election anymore without russian hackers with one think tank director saying the silence worries him quote it doesn't feel right the
article edges that the lack of evidence doesn't necessarily mean moscow is innocent perhaps they just haven't been successful or moscow is simply biding its time and it goes on to say that russia's attack me only be seen after the election speculating that russian linked networks may try to manipulate the vote count so remain alert the washington post even quotes a german security association that works closely with germ intelligence agencies who came up empty when looking for sophisticated attacks coming from russia we did not find any evidence that there are more sophisticated attacks coming from russia in the pre-election period. but that lack is credited to germany's resilience and stringent new legislation against the spreading a fake news legislation that doesn't come into effect until october but you know whatever the article also concedes that perhaps moscow decided to leave berlin alone because they're close trade partners something that putin himself has said in the past. we did not interfere in the u.s. elections so why would we created the problems here we have good relations with
germany it's our largest trade and economic partner in europe but he is russian after all statements really only become fact when western powers make them so the clear message for russia is you're damned if you do hack and you're damned if you don't. it's been a pleasure having you with us here today on the international headlines of my colleague. taking over in about half an hour's time. with my op i would you drop you with the ease with was it the easier it
was it was it's a it. syria. is a situation like israel and palestine is not a country where i meet a lot of people. everybody. is a very serious situation people have been much more than in any other. day . credit is one of the basic instruments to drive an economy but it can also lead to tragedy. and in this fire not. many lives have been broken. the banks
got you into. big bank of. the bank i didn't think of the. morning through the back hunted down by creditors people see no future bad face and have you know you become ill you do to job your relationship breaks down you become a casualty is dead a life long trap or is there no way out i was actually going to bed. to get a bill from so much. more. this is a story of one of africa's giants. know his teeth that shot. on his neck isn't that
a long. list giant is rather modest and keeps a low profile that's not him either. people are often scared of this particular giant but he is nowhere near as dangerous as that one. is a friendly giant every day with the possible exception of weekends he saves human lives yes. his name is isaac the giant power korat. and i like his brothers and sisters he was born with a passion for travel. isaac's
birthplace was a special training center in tanzania. it's called a popup which stands for development of landmine detection equipment that's what isaac is these are mine sniffing rat. rats are everywhere they are sociable they adapt to all circumstances and they fifteen seem dio's is with humanity since ever. they actually traditionally get rid of all our garbage and they've been doing that. for always. mind sniffing rats are put to work in formal hotspots where learned mines are among the most deadly remnants of armed conflict they're often found years after was ended and serious injury isn't the only problem. imagine how it.
