you're watching altie international live from moscow studio with me in india today welcome to the program and we start this hour with breaking news in a new development the president of the world anti-doping agency has confirmed the authenticity of a document leaked to the u.s. media the document revealed water had cleared ninety five russian athletes from nine different spalls that was subject to its drugs probe artie's kate partridge is across the story. this letter was from an internal water report want to be in the world anti doping agency and that is that should be said that going by insufficient evidence that's the key phrase here that ninety five of ninety six russian athletes that have been implicated across nine different sports will have now been cleared so as we know this is something that's been hanging around for wasn't the mclaren
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 as all of them occur in report the i.o.c. actually the international olympic committee they do also raise questions about the mccarren report the key point that they had used is how to demonstrate that came up time and time again based on those allegations so that there have been rumblings that some of these allegations that some of the athletes implicated we're talking about a lot of athletes 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 police from the rio games also didn't go so if we look at all those parties the blanket bans how it affected those who are 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 when to find these athletes have effectively been given the all clear by water so now it's a case of all the international sporting federations coming together saying that's rubbish start this that put our cases forward and get the rest of the athletes
cleared. this all comes in the wake of three russian scientists launching a court case against wada over their bans sociology professor ellis cashmore at the u.k.'s austin university says the agency will have a hard time defending itself. was that is that what i did doping agency 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 they were you mongoose lee big decisions what are you do big agency really wants to get rid of this it wants to try to bury this and make it go away now it really depends on just. prepared they are to dig in their heels they presumably have to use of lawyers behind them and if they ride to the bitter end then it will be a case where mclaren is forced to disclose his evidence and that will be very interesting. donald trump seems unimpressed by the latest u.n.
security council sanctions against north korea he hinted that more action will still need to be taken to develop young young nuclear ambitions. 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 now they're 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 leaves and every week it with the war record goes up very high than that maybe this some 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 the original u.s. draft was watered down considerably it was acceptable to the russians or the
chinese but then we have this fire breathing talk coming from pyongyang we don't know what the next step is going to be could be the real question is. going to be when do we actually get to a diplomatic track that allows the sides to step down and it'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 saying. it's little surprise that pyongyang isn't exactly happy about the new sanctions either despite the fine fan know when as harsh as the u.s. in return he wanted north korea's i'm busted to russia says it's wrong to believe the sanctions will change anything. 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 it's delusional author and filmmaker john pelletier believes the u.s. is acting like a bully. the problem is not north korea the problem is not russia of the problem is not trying the problem is the united states the problem for the rest of the world actually is the containment of the united states sections are relevant and 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 can solve but where it's all heading is the most worrying thing of all. to syria now where islamic states grip over the country is rapidly collapsing with no major city any longer under the full control of the terror group one of the main fronts is there is where the syrian army is now closed to pushing
eisel out of the city locals have already started to return there after three years has broken with the help of russia power however some pockets of beisel resistance remain in certain districts. they told us first don't forget you're in syria if you get all the benefit second if you have to go to bed early t.v.'s banned radios banned cell phones are banned a woman can go outside dressed so that the only thing which can be seen is her eyes . we saw them breaking into houses then they approached our house they were banging on our doors banging and banging first i didn't open it for them but they smashed
it down you'd go inside and smash double the things in the house. i spent seven days in the jail and then i was taken to the chief of the court sentenced me to sixty lashes they made me stand against the wall as a teacher. for the old enough to my next year and i was driving along the main road when a bomb or not a fragment of the bomb hit my nephew and he died years of life we didn't have enough time to save him some people called an ambulance but he couldn't they say that he died even before he got to the field hospital. laments in the most sort him when we were living under the blockade we had no cucumbers tomatoes apples or potatoes i have all that now thank god we get
groceries and food boxes from the red cross we are very grateful to them i'm very happy that the blockade has been lifted. along with civilians the syrian army was trapped inside terrorists train the siege it held and defended several blocks of the city including a military airport while we managed to talk to the bases chief commander. i. saw. a seizure was also a report of stormy airport this siege was quite severe since i still terrorists attacked the airport another military daily we had an operation to and everyone has to change their role the soldier that he was rolled the leaders were side by side with the soldiers we fought to the death none of our soldiers ran away and we defeated eisel their bodies were in the ground even before the siege was broken we received munitions by air drop because all the roadways were under eisel control and using those munitions we fought eisel and won they weren't able to break any of
our lines hundreds of them were killed all their attacks against the airport failed even when using car bombs and suicide attacks we faced them down bravely well our documentary team has been to the very heart of the battle to rid syria of its state a clue to travel to the scene of fierce clashes to film those fighting to banish the terror group from the country. back or is now surrounded by u.s. backed syrian democratic forces consisting mainly of kurdish militia clashes are ongoing as the terrorists are still in control of several blocks of the city we spoke to the director of the documentary about what the team experienced when we went to make this film we had no idea what we're going to come across we had literally no idea 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. was. the one quality that you know it's 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. now 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 attacked us 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 just executed a few minutes or maybe an hour ago. these three kids all of
a sudden maybe two minutes later we heard screaming and you just started running into a space just started running there without a rifle just with a sword i think they go straight from the americans because they probably sold them a lot so they were isis. you know was one of the medics that we were filming. we are the only generation that will never want to go back to the days when we were young. and it's true. for more first hand accounts from one of the key battlegrounds in syria you can watch the full documentary on all t. international next monday. about the hung at the top u.s. college on the anniversary of nine eleven has been pulled down off transponder furious accusations being anti american well let's get the details from all. now can you explain what's so controversial about the banner. sure well
controversy erupted after students hung a banner that criticized the war on terror the banner read there's no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people which is a quote attributed to american historian howard zinn below that however it was the phrase in honor of those killed and displaced by america's so-called war on terror and this is what sparked outrage all over campus as one can guess the controversy divided campus democrats and republicans hurst college democrats defended the banner saying it shows a more comprehensive understanding of the tragedy in a facebook post the group recognized american minorities who faced discrimination and violence after nine eleven and also acknowledge the war on terrorism mass civilian casualties a representative of the university's college republicans denounce the banner taking a very america centric take saying that nine eleven should only honor those who
died and served for their country a university officials blasted the banner as deeply insensitive but refused to remove it up until yesterday evening due to its obligation to uphold free speech the university clearly violated their commitment to free speech and hearst university did however leave a statement on its website honoring the three members of their community killed in the deadly attacks sixteen years ago with the death toll reaching nearly three thousand the attacks served as a pretext to launch the war on terror which resulted in massive alien casualties and american soldiers did. ok thanks very much to me in a column there reporting from washington for the update on that story. great britain got some warning from the commission president find out why after this break.
in case you're new to the game this is how it works my economy is built around corporate perforations washington washington post media the. voters elect a businessman to run this country business equals. boom bust it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the senate is full on. the only show i go out of my way to launch you know what it is that really packs a punch. yeah it is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same we are apparently better than. the c. people you've never heard of love down to the next president of the world bank so
very. seriously send us an e-mail. welcome back to the program the president of the european commission has delivered his state of the union address in strassburg he started by thanking any twenty seven of the twenty eight members of the e.u. despite the fact the u.k. will continue to be part of the plot for another one and a half years and for britain instead of funks he had a warning. on march the twenty ninth two thousand one team in the united kingdom will leave the e.u. it will be a sad and tragic moment. we will always regret this and you
will regret it quite suit. at the end of the address everyone got up and applauded except for a group of british army pays among them the hard core brags a tear for our show but it wasn't just the new kit members that gave younker a frosty welcome. but the european union is not europe and europe is not the european union. wants to force the european union to become a single state yet we know that the euro is not a success story we have extraordinary levels of unemployment and social instability . with the german general election now less than two weeks away western media have been busy trying to track down russian hackers who as they assume should have already started meddling in the european powerhouses vote. in a washington post article one security expert is quoted as saying that it just doesn't feel right that the russians haven't struck yet the report as the reason
may be that germany's nailed the art of cyber security it also states that no evidence of any attempted meddling has actually been detected artie's jacqueline takes a closer look at the story. if you haven't been in a coma for the past year you've likely heard a thing or two about alleged russian interference and 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 warned 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 in stringent new legislation against the spreading of 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 us 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. meanwhile according to a poll three of the smaller parties vying for third place in the upcoming election
have shot up in support of the last week the free democratic party now has a nine percent share also known as the left party has over ten percent with alternative for germany a fraction ahead we spoke to an m.p. from d. link alexander annoyed for his thoughts on german foreign policy. prince fleet is sure to be the tension with russia began to escalate at the end of two thousand and thirteen early two thousand and fourteen with my dad the coup of february two thousand and fourteen and then it was crimea joining russia and at the same time the war in syria with the presence of both western and russian troops says germany also has a military presence in syria with recon aircraft a tanker and a frigate and that contradicts international law because the syrian government didn't give permission we are also present in ukraine the west is playing referee at the cost of the ukrainian people warning that russia must be penalized but the
west e.u. and nato member states like germany the u.k. and the usa are deeply involved in this conflict just as much as the warring factions. is into i don't you know this since two thousand and eight we've been seeing the end of the unit polar world order where the west can enforce its own agenda that we're switching now to a multi-polar world order and it is difficult to accept to coordinate foreign and security policy with other powers like china russia or the brics countries and respect their interests in the last twenty five years we got used to doing what we want and not caring about international law and now we are in the situation where this does not work anymore it didn't work in ukraine or georgia in two thousand and eight in syria the west did not succeed with violently changing assad's regime on the contrary we are most likely the losers there.
in twenty six tino washington university study revealed that most refugees coming to europe originated from countries that were bombed the second group is economic refugees when the west destroys other economies which are not competitive with in demand free trade and say we want to sell our goods there and if the economy turns to ruins we don't care about it these are the states in africa in asia in latin america and we shouldn't be surprised when people pack their bags and want to come to germany because they want to normal life it's understandable it's. part of the news this hour don't forget to check us out on social media facebook twitter and of course our by upside dot com. we'll be here at the top of the alice so stay with us.
greetings and salutations today hawk watchers let's talk about trails live on t.v. the dirty word that no credible same news anchors never ventured on live television oh my goodness yes come trails now if you travelled on a conspiracy site online you'll find a whole smorgasbord of different kinds of. some skinny some bunk some honest but today we're going to focus on the pesticide variety the pesticide variety that is currently being deployed to the hurricane harvey ravaged region of east texas to help combat the coming swarms of insects like mosquitoes and flies who love multiplying exponentially in the heavily polluted standing water left in the wake of the massive flooding that overtook that area and while i massive effort to control the spread of disease and bugs through a pesticide spraying campaign may look good on paper for the short term especially for those corporate chemical giants in the pens pesticide industry the after
effects the after. bex name may not be so great for you know the rest of us in the long term yes long term a word pairing more frightening to politicians corporations and wall street traders than them trail could ever hope to be you see the primary pesticide used for killing mosquitoes and bulk by the air force reserves according to their press release the environmental protection agency approved unregulated material nala a pesticide that according to mint press nudes is currently banned in the in the european union to the unacceptable risk it presents to human health like the people of east texas and florida haven't had enough risk in their lives lately and now we're going to start pouring pesticides on them i think it's time to start watching the hawks.
