help and get the middle finger to the movies tomorrow or the slow. delayed and i hope you die. wiki leaks says the cia wrote code to impersonate russia's caspar asking lab anti-virus program. what the right approach and says the u.s. is attempting to create problems around next year's presidential election in russia in response to moscow's perceived meddling last year. u.s. a justice department demands that r.t. america register as a foreign agent before monday the channels the bank accounts could be frozen if it does not comply. in saudi arabia and kuwait order their citizens out of lebanon need it lee after the resignation of the saudi backed lebanese prime minister.
2:32 am
our broadcasting live director our studios in moscow this is our international sean thomas certainly glad to have you with us now wiki leaks claims the cia has created a computer program that impersonates the software of a russian anti-virus company casper elaborate he has commentary. we now have a new batch of documents from wiki leaks that give insight into how the cia operates on a daily basis collecting information now one of the revelations in the new batch of documents shows that the cia has a program for imitating kaspersky laboratory a well known russian software company conspiracy laboratory has been at the center of some scandal recently we had u.s. authorities essentially barring any government agency from using their products saying that they present a risk to homeland security a recent report from the wall street journal accused kaspersky laboratory of
2:33 am
essentially stealing government information and secrets with its malware software from the us an essay national security agency we actually had a statement from the u.s. homeland security secretary regarding the laboratory the risk that the russian government by their action on its own in collaboration with conspiracy could capitalize on access provided by kaspersky products to compromise federal information and information systems directly implicates u.s. national security now kaspersky laboratory responded to these allegations saying the company has never helped nor will help any government in the world with its cyber espionage or offensive cyber efforts because the laboratory considers itself to be a cyber company a software corporation it's not involved in government activities espionage anything to that effect now at this point it is quite interesting to see that these allegations have been leveled against kaspersky laboratory when the cia
2:34 am
specifically had a program designed to leave false digital fingerprints and make it look like software and malware activities were being done by kaspersky laboratories so a lot of questions are being raised people that browse the internet using software and malware may wonder now when they use such programs are they using programs that have been released and designed by the cia or is it actually kaspersky laboratories it's unclear as we see this program has been utilized by the cia to give false digital fingerprints. eugene kasper he had stated through his twitter account that the mall where mentioned in the vault eight a report bears no relation to the products of test rescue lab he also maintains all users of the anti-virus software are safe and unaffected now vault eight is a new series of wiki leaks publications on a huge tranche of elite cia files that details some of the revelations in the
2:35 am
previous batch called vault seven which revealed the agency had its own model where exploited vulnerabilities in phones and t.v.'s and also had the ability to bypass encryption on messaging apps and ball to seven also featured a cia division called bridge which created a library of hacking techniques stolen from other countries the agency also had a tool to disguise its malware and make it seem like it had been created by somebody speaking a language other than english those languages included arabic chinese russian korean and farsi now that would make it more difficult to attribute a cyber attack to the cia we spoke to a former cia officer who was surprised that nobody has spotted a connection between the russian hacking allegations and the agency's hacking tools it's an amazing story for an intelligence analyst you know we're taught to connect dots but even when this marble framework tool was announced by julian or signage even though the soviet so the russians now have been accused of hacking
2:36 am
into various systems no no one has ever put that revelation together with the so-called russian hacker the d.n.c. emails that said oh well it might be the russians now because labs is in the same situation. u.s. is trying to sow divisions in russia have marches presidential election that is according to vladimir putin he added it comes as a retaliation for moscow's alleged hacking and right now it is sports in the crosshairs. question for them. there are serious concerns that in response to a perceived meddling in the u.s. election they want to cause problems during the presidential election in russia during the olympic games due to be held in february when it is the presidential election in march here are concerns that someone says so discontent among sports fans and the athletes that the government is somehow responsible for the violations . so the statement actually came when putin was asked about fresh waves of doping
2:37 am
allegations against russian athletes on thursday for example we had the results from four russian skiers an old who participated in the sochi olympics and they were banned for life from the games and that's a repeat of exactly what we saw last week when two other russian skiers were also accused of violating doping rules now the accusations continue to flow and are all centered around the idea that this was a state sponsored scheme now something that something that moscow has of course repeatedly denied including putin himself the key allegations behind the idea that this doping was state sponsored revolve around the idea that the samples from the russian athletes were in fact tampered with however putin highlighted the fact that when those samples were sent off just after the sochi olympics when they were sent to a lab in switzerland they were received and no complaints were leveled at the time was that i did go to the switch just a few months following the sochi olympics acting on the instructions of the i.o.c.
2:38 am
we handed over all those samples to elysium laboratory which is essentially under what is controlled there were no complaints whatsoever on receiving those samples so the samples have been stored there for two or three years and only then did questions arise the voyles might have been opened or simply been doing with the samples here's. scratching no biting them there so the fact that these accusations are emerging again right now isn't a coincidence in the present is given that the presidential election is just over one hundred days away and that starts just one month after the beginning of the winter games so that's essentially sort of encouraging a really tense climate in the run up to the election hooten sees this as an answer by the u.s. for the unproven allegations that russia interfered in the u.s. presidential election sort of an eye for an eye reaction and that's made possible by the fact that the i.o.c. the international olympic committee is highly dependent on sponsors and those buying ads and of course the bulk of that cash is intact coming from the u.s.
2:39 am
according to putin who also under that with calling for improvement to the anti-doping system in the sports world world clearly he sees a number of inconsistency is there. but sports is not the only field where russia is under pressure the u.s. justice department has ordered our team america to register as a foreign agent by monday if the broadcaster fails to do so it's a bank accounts could be frozen the controversial legislation was adopted more than seventy years ago before world war two to counter nazi propaganda in america the russian embassy in the us is said in a facebook post that the measures against russian media could be in breach of international press freedom principles post pressure put on russian media shows that the us keeps moving along the path of deliberate worsening of relations between russia and america. as an effort to quote alternative information and then acceptable breach of international principles of the freedom of the press we are
2:40 am
going to use the shoes which monitor the situation in the us with regard to media to react accordingly it will be interesting to see how the reacts we expect an appropriate six months of the situation from the unesco goodwill ambassador for freedom of expression and journalists safety christiane. and pressure on russian media does not end there u.s. lawmakers are now considering a bill proposing that cable and satellite providers not be required to carry video content somehow linked to the kremlin that means providers could decide for themselves whether to show such content or not though it is important to note the bill is yet to be approved russia has promised a similar response with some top politicians proposing a tit for tat move if the bill gets adopted journalist and writer neil clark believes the pressure on the russian media is down to its recent successes. well this is absolutely outrageous i think we could call it mccarthyism but it really is mccarthyism on steroids now and it's a signal from the escalation in this cold war launched by the u.s. against russian media r.t.
2:41 am
as a growing audience share in america and around the world in r.t. puts a different narrative out to the war party narrative on issues like the syrian conflict for example so i think the war mongers in the us are very angry that artie's been so successful and i think it would be wholly wrong for the head of r.t. america to actually comply with this and to and to say that he's a foreign agent or to a foreign agent to be wholly wrong what i think the response to this should be is to carry on i also think it might be a good idea for the russians to say that if this goes ahead from monday all american journalists who work for c.n.n. have to register as foreign agents in russia or they'll be arrested you can play this game. french president emanuel micron has effectively called the iran nuclear deal into question saying it needs revising our control of different reports well emanuel might go on has been speaking in dubai on thursday where he's been talking about the future of the rayney a nuclear deal that was agreed back in twenty fifteen describing that deal as being
2:42 am
insufficient for the future this is what he had to say in a situation the situation we're facing now this agreement of twenty fifteen is no longer sufficient he should not be reconsidered or eliminated but it should be completed with necessary point. well mr mccollum went on to say that he wanted to remain with the rain ians in regards to its ballistic missile program and its influence in the middle east talking about the fact that there was no other option other than the two thousand and fifteen deal even if it may not be the best deal of bailable not seen to relation to what we've been hearing from the u.s. from donald trump over the last few months the threat posed by around it is indeed a threat there is no. question about a red is not living up to the spirit of the deal well donald trump is not the only person who has raised concerns about that agreement back in two thousand
2:43 am
and fifteen the saudi foreign minister has also previously stated his concerns iran has not lived up to the terms of that it really meant with regards to the behavior that is expected of you in terms of promoting stability in the region the instability and the destruction well mr mccollum also warned about not exacerbating tensions in the area coming off the back of a missile strike on saudi arabia just a few days ago by rebels in yemen saying that that ballistic missile came from. providence charlotte devinsky r.t. paris cover our political scientist and former advisor to iran's nuclear negotiating team says micron is contradicting is earlier position on the nuclear deal president seems to be sliding courser and cost to the president and his disastrous. one sided middle
2:44 am
east course of action and his public statements are pretty disquieting right now because they are not only contradict his a statements category called support for the here in the a nuclear deal you know at the u.n. just a couple of months ago and so forth you know he seems to be appeasing iran's right i was in the region maybe use trying to be a shrewd serviceman of arms to the region france a naval base in the u.a.e. as you know trying to assert its regional security calculus more organically whatever it is i think that president barack romney is treading. is not really. if faith will that mediation board that's required to defuse this very potentially dangerous crisis in egypt. right friends and relatives are in
2:45 am
mourning after a child was discovered among the victims of a collapsed building in central russia the city wide state of emergency has been declared after the tragedy also claimed the lives of four others two fifteen year olds are among the injured a gas explosion is thought to be behind the deadly accident relatives warn residents are still trapped under the rubble witnesses the shouts of survivors can still be heard from below the debris rescue teams are at the scene and are working around the clock to save those who are trapped or if we get any word on what is going on with rescue efforts we will bring that to you as soon as it comes into our newsroom. that saudi arabia and kuwait have both told their citizens to leave lebanon immediately that comes as lebanon is rocked by of the sudden resignation of its prime minister over the weekend saad. who is seen as a politician backed by saudi arabia he was in riyadh when he made this announcement and as the reason for his resignation he cited iranian influence in his country.
2:46 am
were never really present discord and destruction of. our countries in lebanon syria very. well i would like to see which iran and its followers that they would be losing their. way come to the scene within the past and they have sons in the region. following his announcement there has been speculation that saudi arabia could be holding a hard against his will riyadh has denied such allegations but the u.s. state department spokesperson caused further confusion at her latest briefing when she seemed to let slip she may know where hariri is. in terms of the conditions of him being held or the conversations between saudi arabia and the prime minister hariri i would have to refer you to the government of saudi arabia and also to mr hariri office for it so that your visions of him being held as soon as you can detention. that i'm not going to put that word behi out i'm not going to
2:47 am
associate that word with that but where he is right now where you see as you have a nice room i was right i don't know personally where he is or if you have heard different reports i can't remember where he is but we're hearing right now where did the sheriff he met him i i don't i don't think i'm committed to say that but i will double check i'm a journalist martin j. thinks of the current crisis in lebanon has been created artificially by saudi arabia there is an agenda to try and destabilize it run to and to create some sort of tension in the region and these are the first steps or three studies which is a somewhat of a few it's all just a given that are hardly any saudis in the level of the movements but there are a few kuwaitis are quite a few quickly tourists what's the link you might be able to sell to lebanon well saad hariri a lot of people don't know is also a saudi citizen spent most of his life in saudi arabia and is considered to be
2:48 am
a sort of. to put it bluntly so they've pulled mystery over back to saudi arabia in a sort of panic last week a couple of times basically forced him to resign as lebanese premier that's part of a bigger longer term plan to try and destabilize lebanon to shake tiny lebanon so as to make a point to hezbollah and to the region on the business there's a new guy in town a new leader in saudi arabia who's got a new agenda to play out. as martin just mentioned saudi arabia is unhappy with the strengthening of hezbollah in lebanon a group sponsored by iran tensions between riyadh and tehran have been rising for a while now with mounting concerns direct confrontation could break out soon as explains recently barely without saudi arabia making headlines and it almost always boils down to it it is a game of chess that spans an entire region on every front in every country
2:49 am
the saudis. the who's the rebels in yemen who saudi arabia has been bombing for many years fire a rocket riyadh that the saudis could only describe as a rainy and aggression. iran's role and its direct command of his hooty proxy in this matter constitutes a clear act of aggression the coalition's command considers this a blatant acts of military aggression by the iranian regime and could rise to be considered as an act of war against the kingdom of saudi arabia the saudis also ready to throw their allies under the bus to create an excuse to denigrate iran. q the lebanese prime minister holding
2:50 am
a successful meeting with the rain ians and then going to saudi arabia and out of the blue without warning declaring his resignation while launching into a tirade about evil raney an influence plunging the region into chaos and destruction you lose a poor and gain an opening then there's the blockade of cattle. a trade embargo seven ties ultimatums and warnings punishment some say for cata daring to deal with the rain ians and then there's syria the saudi sponsored rebellion is dying the hardest allies are losing an ass ad is winning this isn't what riyadh planned we hope that and expect that during the interim period of the of the transition period bashar al assad will exit because he has
2:51 am
absolutely no role to play in the future here and while syria may have unexpectedly checkmated riyadh here the saudis are ramping up attacks on iran on other fronts truly this is an international game of chess with nations and populations at stake ironic given that last year so dia arabia's highest islamic cleric banned the chess saying. that the game causes enmity and hatred between people and even when played on a giant geopolitical scale well it looks like he was right. russia and syria have come under fire at a closed door meeting of the organization for prohibition of chemical weapons the meeting followed the findings of an investigation into a deadly sarin gas attack in syria and april the o.p.c. w issued a report two weeks ago which concluded assad's government was behind the attack which left more than eighty dead it also stated that the sand gas used can be
2:52 am
