hills and business leaders although they are not actually being targeted with new restrictions on the sleeper trenker explains. for now the russian government won't do anything about what was called the u.s. kremlin list that's how the russian president for now made up his mind about the u.s. treasury the document it had to be published before the monday night deadline under the so-called countering america's adverse stories through sanctions act and so it was ten minutes before the deadline americans saying that being put on that list which includes one hundred fourteen top russian government officials as well as nearly one hundred which is businessmen doesn't mean receiving some kind of punishment so you may well ask what's the point something to do with sanctions that's not actually sanctions by the way something that i found rather amusing was the fact that the putin administration section matched the kremlin website name by
name while the part about the businessman was almost identical to the forbes list of russia's richest men ply ranking russian officials even had a little laugh perhaps the deputy prime minister of the dvorkovich said that washington basically released a book that you may call a who's who and russian politics and one senator thought of the release asked the sharing of the kremlin phone book anyway back to vladimir putin's first public reaction to the list he said that the u.s. officials weren't doing u.s. russia relations any favors chin with the show's muscle to get used to union human i don't understand the logic behind this move but it's definitely a hostile one and further complicates u.s. russian relations and the security services share intelligence that helped prevent terrorist attacks do they need this or not when we start working together we can do
without that but i think it's in in everyone's. it would be absurd to reduce our relations to zero so i should note that several political analysts told us they believe the list demonstrates the trumpet ministrations unwillingness to ratchet up sanctions against russia i don't think it will have much of the effect at all the thirty thing i think it's the white house telling congress passed this law to try to keep the pressure up on russia this concern about the last election and doing this list seems to have very little purpose other than just filling a legal minimum i don't know if it will really damage any u.s. russian ties it seems that trump is not certainly trying to make it any worse the situation already is it seems like he's really just trying to hope a lot of this goes away and bring it all to a speedy end people look at it and i think and say this is a piece of lazy intelligence you've worked really taken a who's who of who's the rich and powerful in russia and copy down in names and it
doesn't seem to have much substance to it president trump signed it off literally minutes the goal with no enthusiasm with these sanctions forward but he's under pressure though he's under pressure i see from you know the his own intelligence from the military and from the democrats and we nor under pressure pressure presidents can buckle but the real question i repeat is why is russia the main threat at the moment the united states of america and the west and i think the answer has to be nor. there are no russian flags flying at either the twenty eight hundred winter olympics or paralympics in south korea that softer the international paralympic committee held its ban on team russia though it is allowing clean athletes to compete is neutrals two months ago a similar decision was taken by the international olympic committee despite all eyes on russia when it comes to doping allegations are surfacing elsewhere in the world. in the run up to next month's winter games the issue of doping has taken the
main stage once again seeing the majority of russian athletes banned and those eligible to participate forced to compete under a neutral flag and frankly at this point when you hear doping you think russia but is the problem really reserved to just the one country i'm afraid the answer is a resoundingly no an investigation conducted by a group of international researchers at two separate sporting events back in two thousand and eleven produced a rather shocking conclusion where more than two thousand and eight athletes were surveyed anonymously to encourage honest answers doping appears remarkably widespread among elite athletes and remains largely unchecked despite the logical testing that report revealed that at the thirteenth athletics world championships in south korea over forty percent of those competing emitted to doping in the past year and almost sixty percent at the pan arab games in doha whereas want to only came back with point five percent of test as positive in south korea and three point six percent at the pan arab games needless to say that is
a massive discrepancy and the other surprising thing is that the research was actually funded by water and yet no one heard a peep out of them about the result which they've known about for years we would note that there was a delay of nearly six years between the completion of the data collection and the publication of this paper due to negotiations between wanna and i w f and subsequently between us and the authors regarding the authority to publish the results now it goes on to say that neither of the organizations impose restrictions on the writing of the report although i'm not sure how he thinks here delay isn't considered a restriction the president of germany's athletics federation for one was infuriated by the hold up but i think that publication has impaired the possibility of taking important measures in the n.t. doping can pay much earlier this is more than annoying you could also call it this condom and guess what the report was actually released months ago but i'd bet good money that you haven't heard a thing about it because for some reason it wasn't made into nonstop breaking news
no probs were conducted and no bands were seen. we've managed to speak to the authors of the report and one told is that the research indicates a doping epidemic and to international track in the us we are still made forty six percent. and fifty seven percent of the arab league says these international track meets were doping much harder than we expect our quarterly results are in this paper i would call. i mean when you're when you are talking that half of the athletes at an international track we are asked to major to be doing some kind of don't. i think that's a serious problem for asked latics will be very very important to understand why do we have the difference because over there. is we don't know much about.
the athletes complying and by compliance i mean whether or not they follow the instructions and they answered the question has to be instructive because it's not what it could be in play it to figure out what we have to do in a future is understanding. how athletes react when they actually see that question because it's a quite serious question have you used prohibited methods in the past month and how to motivate athletes to answer honestly even if they are actually dopers responding to our request water says that the study will actually be reviewed by a new working group of prevalence we should be a key priority for this year but investigative journalist rick stirling believes that water avoids uncomfortable issues. this was a study which of course would raise alarms with the world anti-doping agency instead of pursuing it and doing further tests that determine the accuracy to try
to verify or disprove the results of that study they simply blocked the publication so in my mind it's an example of the lack of transparency and the bias and the efforts to censor. studies and news that is problematic from their standpoint thanks and with us in on t. more news after this short break. so seem wrong. wrong just don't call. me. yet to stamp out just being active. and engaged with equals betrayal. when something find themselves worlds apart when you choose to look for common ground.
and what politicians do something. they put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. some want to be preached. to going to the press this is what the four three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested in the lives of my. question. welcome back to pharmacies in the german city of frankfurt of found themselves at the center of a racial storm and it's all being whipped up over the centuries old names with
details he's peter oliver. what is in a name well for frankfurt council the name of two of the city's pharmacies was enough to demand that change this is one of them exist so more and it's that final part of the name that the city council here in frankfurt have a problem with it translates as the moon rish pharmacy now traditionally what that meant is that this was a pharmacy that would have stocked alternative medicines or medicines from the east as well as western medicine this building here you can see originates from nineteen hundred however there are campaign is that say that this type of name has no place in modern germany. the reason for the complaint was that people said using the term morrish was racist and offensive against people from north africa but we spoke to
people here on the streets of frankfurt and gauge their opinion about the proposed name change i think it's a shame because it's part of maybe our culture too and it doesn't have any more to do with maybe we've. already. we shouldn't change our traditions here on monday so you tell me if something is to be racist it has to either diminish or belittle people in this case it has more to do with recognizing cultural heritage it didn't even appear to me that you know it's offensive because it is a historic it's simply historic terminal in the pharmacy doesn't for sure doesn't use it to be to be offensive the owners of both pharmacies politely declined to appear on camera saying that the news that they were going to be forced to change their name brought nothing but unwanted publicity. interestingly enough the name up a ticket or more and is much more common place in the state of north
rhine-westphalia but when the integration council in that state will ask. if they'd be following frankfurt's example well they said no they had far better things to be doing peter all of a r.t. frankfurt. tensions have been high in the russian city of sochi where peace talks over the syrian crisis have been held today even the opening speech by russia's foreign minister was interrupted the reports it's been a busy and unpredictable start to the sochi peace conference first there's a deal for hours and hours while last minute arrivals couldn't quite make their minds up on whether to attend or not and when foreign minister lavrov finally got around to making the opening speech well this. is a difference i want to say.
i. am going to friends thank you very much. difference we have to continue working you will have a chance to participate in the discussion. as for myself. the root is its and once express my sincere is crushed as he talks colleagues. friends again i would like you to tension. you're going to see those that if it's long live russia the let me speak please. organizers tell us more than a thousand thousand six hundred delegates most of them syrians have come to attend
to attend this peace conference but those last arrivals we mentioned the hard core opposition the real power the rebel power on the ground formally the they voted to all but boycott the sochi conference nevertheless turkey convinced them to get on board a plane and fly over once they got here they had their own preconditions they were also upset with the syrian government flags being put up. around sochi they demanded that those be taken down and. we were made to the airport refusing to work under the flag and slogans of the syrian regime therefore our delegation has decided not to take part in the sochi talks but boycott them and return to ankara however the turkish delegation remains in sochi and it will voice our demands and our desire to see them implemented which they then boarded the jet and after
spending ten or so hours at the airport flew back to turkey nevertheless the congress the syria peace conference went on he went ahead it would have been great to have that opposition here to have that diversity here to see them sit down with the syrian government perhaps other factions other denominations and the cities who are represented here and to talk about their differences not try to. necessarily resolve them here and now you know that's expecting a lot but at least get the ball rolling at least voice their concerns voiced their positions which is what this vent this venue this space is entirely about getting everyone to sit down and to establish a precedent where they can talk to each other because the syrian civil war has dragged on and on people tired of it internationally in syria weary of the fighting and does well it isn't going away that the rebels wanted it to go so there's more
incentive here to sit down and talk nevertheless not this time around but sochi will happen again and we have yet to see what these these session in particular will result that. however representatives from some opposition groups were present at the talks and managed to speak to their opponents from damascus it's clear that they don't agree on many issues including the fate of the president bashar al assad but still they have something in common the willingness to talk. we are here now to negotiate to sit in front of each other to fight each other to shout at each other to talk to each other to talk frankly we hope that here in sochi we can achieve what we couldn't achieve in geneva after eight rounds of talks now with the syrian government cannot just avoid these negotiations they will have to meet all the participants of the congress face to face that is a step forward that was not made in geneva it will be useful for geneva. and i'm at
the head that our sochi europe regarding sochi should remember there are many problems both on the ground and political the syrian army with its allies has liberated large areas and eliminated terrorist leaders anyway the geneva negotiations lead to nothing in order to please other parties that happens with other negotiation platforms too and that's where sochi comes in but we shouldn't expect too much maybe some expect the situation in syria will be resolved right after a declaration when announcements and sochi but we know how politics works these negotiations are just a stage. right up to date thanks for staying with the latest headlines in half an hour.
we have a great team we need to strengthen before the freeflow world called better than a legend to keep it tight at the back. in ninety two that must qualify for the european championships at the very last moment no one. believed in last what we want and i'm hoping to bring some of that waiting spirit to the r.c.t. . recently i've had a lot of practice so i can guarantee you that peter schmeichel will be on the best fall since my last will come from that story as well as the. thousand old joke though he hated here i called russia. by strife strife left left left more left ok stop that's really good that.
would lol make its manufacture get sentenced to the public will. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the fine and merry go round if there's only the one percent. we can all middle of the room signals. from the real news group. hey everybody i'm stephen baldwin task hollywood guy the suspect every proud american first of all i'm just george washington and r.v. and do you see this is my buddy max famous financial guru and we're just a little bit different i'm not a abraham lincoln high no no no no doubt with all the drama happening in our country i'm shooting the road have some fun meet everyday americans. and look for
it's him in december morning and i'm on a bus headed down south from chinatown new york there breathless driver speeds up on the ice who really. am traveling across the states in a snowstorm because of a book. written over despair of twenty years back i'm forced from the mining areas to be stunned kentucky the book by a time in school our tally is a monumental collection of moral history it tells the struggle of the words males to round mining of coal when amy grants were to come to the area to work well paid but often has faded jobs the book tells the story of harlan county that's where i'm going. to
bury. this or part. own. land. i'm headed to the depot mary kom. i want to see what's left of the. three years since his first visit now that the us is shifting to major and gas and coal mines for shutting down one after another i do not expect to find a lively city when i drive into harlem i find it on
a city where people are stuck like car turned in and black and white picture their stories and there. have not changed much from those recorded by push fields research and that they are leaving me in this journey. with. well we really don't know what. they. would have been in thirty. plus at least two it would be. worth. no ma'am.
in their place now it's. like appalachian man but. appalachian male eating. its. prime are far more false. are shallow. i got married when. i was sixteen years old and my husband was seventeen years old and lead me in myriad about six months then he went into the mountains and then six months after that dad and i went to call accident. i had two week old son.
lady who lived down the street here only. killed. murdered that he would hit really. low. where no. company wants to poll real that's george said also that cole ready for the christmas they wanted him there and we. shot the whole world will put down it was done by a guy that walt. wrote keothavong if. they know it much. two three tell them both so much get one through so it. shielded. the faith you see i would fail and i.
see you. i find remnants of the mining history older memories of the casualties and the hard labor are alive in the stories told by the young and the like they're not had credibility of collective struggle and hard work paid off. speaking to the locals barson saloons you can see that their life was and still is mine mine is harder now. really their collective legend and whether played a part where said when try. their survival first the words disappearing before day i ask for the rose parade rest. in their stride branded a bit of a work first see a racist and shield but first you have like
a man sixty of them at meyers grill so it was great. it was work and i got there as my grandpa grabbed the six awful sweater. and let me bring you. in every lady made home may add edit. he always had peace because you know now with bates the life that you'll say. you're going through. you won't want to talk you into
the water in the mine and soon you would have to drown through water it would get it over your knees and. the horses would have to pull through the opponent's moon and then they would like to bow polish the tracks sometimes when they'd run out of traffic people here name were you know rock anywhere it's there's nothing formed today and there have been all the young pay for the turning to. alcohol. and. if it were someone would have to stay and. say our government would get interested in this place this part of kentucky i think we. could make it but if they don't i'm there every day. in this say you know there.
playing the song but all. use. is holding its own prove. in one thousand nine hundred i was the first woman to work in this one particular mine and my job was what they called the belt boy and then they started calling me the belt person because i was a female so when i would go underground everybody would be kind of gathered to see the. this woman coming out of the mines you know and then i remember my face will be all black with the coal dust and i was a little bit vain so i would have a handkerchief and i would wipe my face off before i would come outside so it would be all clean. so that it but the guys would always be looking for me to come out because it was just so amazing i guess to them to see a woman working in the mines.
