mr sanderson to tell due respect not declaring an agent is a different claim from the president of the country ordering the assassination on a foreign soil and this is the letter claimed that the foreign secretary of boris johnson is advancing against russia if russia is found in or at the soviet union was found in violation of that treaty that would be something different and the consequences for that would be totally different than accusing a country or a country's president of ordering assassinations of foreign citizens do you see the difference at least what though true to explain this situation is that because it was the cliff and because no future and it's precursors are not listed in the cuckoo weapons convention there is no way that the international community has been able to verify what the agents are how much as or was produced and where it comes from now one of the things of the investigation that's now being carried out by the view inspectors at the invitation of the united kingdom will review i
6:01 am
hope that's something you can recall forensics who will review whether it was recently produced it will reveal what the precursor agents were that were used and it's a very affectionate it'll be able to tell us whether it was done in a laboratory in a small quantity or was it it's something that was produced in large quantities now what they're saying is that we have to wait for the stops of information to come out to make a much more informed the judgment what politicians do is what politicians do they speak they are very loud in their tree on both sides well mrs anderson have to take a short break but we will be back in just a few moments statement. around
6:02 am
the world there's always a battle going on with the central bankers and the commercial bankers always trying to repress the population in one way or another recall the global insurrection against banker occupation we've been saying this for years on the show so now we're going to look at it from the puerto rican perspective they are similarly being oppressed by the overlords of finance and they are reacting in a very specific puerto rico way. brisker a single. super. training very young. eight months of intensive school. reps. and they save lives.
6:03 am
welcome back to worlds of by the vision called standards they had of the trench a research initiative dedicated to the future of design movement this is anders just before the break we were talking about various allegations leveled against russia by the u.k. foreign secretary boris johnson and one of the claims he made was that for the past decade russia has been pursuing some sort of clint dustin nerve agent program which if that's the case would be a definite violation of the chemical weapons convention. and from what i know the convention actually allows britain and any other country any other signatory to precede a formal inspection if they have any intelligence or any suspicions why do you think britain had been pursued dot through before these tragic. incident and felt
6:04 am
very well the particular allegation of production and maintaining a program came to surprise to me monday impression was or was that while russia had declared the program it was. terminated and the stocks also were destroyed afterwards so i counsel comment on that because it conflicts with what my understanding was now in terms of the opi c.w. procedure. when. the british prime minister made her statement to the commons last week the way it is being presented it basically suggests that this was initiation of the procedure under article one one of the chemical weapons convention that's particular article calls for consultations now as you have already told me several times and as everybody has
6:05 am
been witnessed that was looked a discreet maneuver it was one that was carried over the media of waves and very loudly had there for the critical parts in article nine is a paragraph or two which is the request for clarification and if i understand it correctly it is but are precisely that that your foreign minister mr lover of has been asking for. thinking because this is the first time that particular provision of the chemical weapons convention is being invoked or may be invoked it has not yet been invoked my impression is that london is going to wait for the results from c.w. tests or the samples that they will take with them to have analysed independent laboratories. these information comes in i think it may be possible that long
6:06 am
is going to initiate article two can see. that's a very formal process in which countries must respond within very precise as indicated in the article you mentioned. the speech that the three samee gave before the parliament and she used a very interesting wording to describe the substance offered type developed by russia not produced just developed. my take i may be biased by the russian propaganda by my take is that she's talking about the historic origins of that substance and just last year we had another very high profile and nerve agent poisoning of the half brother to the north korean leader at the kuala lumpur airport he was poisoned with the use of the v. x. nerve agent we was originally developed by british scientists back in the one thousand fifty's if we use the same logic here do you think it would be correct to
6:07 am
attribute that attack to the united kingdom because it was carried out with the use of an agent that was of a type a region and originated in the united kingdom to the very first part of your question in russia as you have already indicated in several of your questions people who make a very sharp distinction. between the period before december of ninety one when the soviet union the broke up and the period afterwards in the west in general people are going to make that particular distinction sharply even if people would be immediately of the so. if the word russia is used they refer to an earlier period that would be almost synonymous with the soviet union however to come to your second point of which is very good to question the bill
6:08 am
difference with. the choke is a while it was discovered just like the german nerve agents of from before and during world war a spark of. nerve agent was adopted by many countries including the soviet union a sport of its chemical warfare arsenal with the rule of a chill cover for there is only one of coventry the soviet union that is associated with that. particular project so the differences that before her and the way of producing is wide has been used by many countries and is discussed in quite a bit of so. if you were to research the scientific data bases for literature on the so far have come up with one single paper of the proposed ration
6:09 am
for the losses for d. or perceived mr sanders with all due respect the creator of the very nerve agent has immigrated to the united states is on record in several interviews actually saying that the weapon could have been sent to sized in any country by highly skilled professionals and he publicly i mean he published a formula in his own book i think twelve or perhaps to fifteen years ago i understand that does not exclude russia from the least of possible suspects but i would think that it also increases or broadens the number of. potential alternative explanations don't you think so well. as with the. information is why i believe available and you may recall today is the anniversary of the submarine attack by who should we cue in the tokyo underground.
6:10 am
and also prepare and try to assess a total number of people who if that were those saying is this for real is the new both states laboratories and the program literature with a movie choke if and if mr. publish the structures of. in his book so far there is no independent scientific verification of that when people were trying to understand what the searcher was and synthesis. in small quantities as part of their research they never came up with the formulas indicated in the bio be submitted so young now many in moscow from what i know are skeptical that nova truck was used in the first place because this particular group of nerve agents are described as highly toxic and extend to instantaneous in their action if the cripple family was indeed targeted by nova chuck isn't it perplexing to your at
6:11 am
least that barest reported to be alive well that's part of the mystery of the story and it's a very good question so far we have received no information which version of the movie was used we must be conceived of a family of nerve agents or which of a number of similarities but there are over one hundred chemical structures believed to be part of the family three were very advanced in their development for military purposes and to the best of my understanding is woven was a solid so it would have to be disseminated as a powder and the whole version was a liquid and one version was binary in other words the two final precursors still have to react with each other to make the final version now we have no information yet as to whether the agent used in the nation a was a solid or
6:12 am
a liquid if it would've been a solid that it's almost impossible that an individual did it however at the same time it would explain why there are no witnesses to have said they saw somebody attacking. because such a person if it would have been a liquid or a liquid spray would have had to wear gloves protective equipment gas mask and so forth right now. love the hope of circulating in the western media i do with if it's true but actually was delivered through different emotions system or for his or. just a solid a soul and is more difficult to absorb in the body and it would take longer to explain why they were still able to walk for such a distance and of course once they go to the medication. from the womb medication
6:13 am
the may have been a lot of so again we have to know what the basic facts of before we can say anything serious about possible scenarios you know we had correct murray on there to recently he's a former you can bastard to his back to stan and one of the biggest skeptics of the case official narrative and he raised an interesting point he said that if what boris johnson salves is true that russia has indeed have has had this clandestine program trying to develop nova chuck it must have spent millions of dollars on it why then blow it all on assassinating one person and his daughter who russia itself released to the british authorities eight years ago i understand that many people in the west perhaps believe that the russians are absolutely brazen and evil but. it doesn't seem to make sense from an economic point of view we are not such a rich country to you know spend the millions of dollars on assassinating just one
6:14 am
person doesn't doesn't that seem in can go into. this is highly speculative to call into work the british ambassador said i would just repeat to preview spoon i was extremely surprised when the british foreign secretary mrs johnson made the allegation of an active. program. chips to the best of who. has spoken with many russian people diplomats. newer officials over the years to the best of my knowledge of the program had to go on the way side of the plea so i am surprised of this is. to say and finally mr zandi is the british narrative has been changing quite a bit first to recent may suggest that that it was possible that the russians were a negligent and lost control of the of the stocks down boris johnson directly
6:15 am
accused of plotting a putin of ordering be a fascination now the narrative shifting towards a russia bad behavior in general you made it clear that. you tend to believe the u.k. government more than you believe there are government but i wonder if the way this story has been changing has raced any skepticism in your own mind look the accusations go all of direct involvement of mr putin and so will this is something really leave for the responsibility of the person who don't want to get involved in that i have. relations with a number of russian people in questions of disarmament last november i was invited by. the russian foreign ministry to attend the meeting in sochi on biological weapons disarmament you know countries have interests we try to work
6:16 am
a full disarmament to try to bring people together so that chemical biological weapons are eliminated we knew that states have interests there these interests. purslow preferred interests the would be today the wolves the things of them experiencing is that ideas very quickly polarized in the media particularly also in the social media they lead their own lives. now all the theorists hope offices heard about the use of. assassination the ninety five to ninety eight percent for an incredible what i will to look at or what the basic facts is the basic facts are that we know very little the word is very open at least in my own mind as you know it will soon approaches
6:17 am
very seriously if one wants to let the mechanisms to or available through the chemical weapons convention play their role in conflict mediation then i think we have to look at the facts and the procedures work out performer billy at the much lower level florist n.p.r. hear it while mr sanders i have nothing to add to that i really think that we owe all deserved to get the facts about the story regardless of who is the paper traitor of this horrendous attack because if it was indeed a chemical weapon used on the streets of cells very i am absolutely sure that most of the russians would be absolutely appalled by that regardless of whether or not that government was of walt anyway we have to leave it there really appreciate your time and i also encourage our viewers to keep the conversation going on our social media pages as for me hope to hear again same place same time here and will to part .
6:18 am
time about e-mail bag of the entire you might even want to get it. but again. yet again that i mean by my mom company i knew god to walk me to the beach. in the middle of the way to handle a document you may believe does have images consistent with the world. then a little bit of an actual again that he may as well see a good deal i'd say he became. a citizen
6:19 am
a world seem to cool please don't take this allowed. to. quit cold. turkey.
6:20 am
poisoning. and the british government must provide information on the. president of the country speaking exclusively to. country. legal migration. interests people. the libyan people must. reveal the much praise security of.
6:21 am
national security. the twenty second this is. a very warm welcome to you. all for. qualifying the alleged poisoning of a former russian agent and his daughter russia's foreign ministry that it expects. from the u.k. as as well. from the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons. reports the foreign ministry spokesperson said a number of things firstly he reiterated that russia could have in no way benefited from the attack moscow says they consider this to be a terror attack secondly they stated that the u.k. refused to cooperate with russia which is against the convention on prohibition of
6:22 am
chemical weapons and he mentioned the attack could have been orchestrated by another party but then clarified that russia is not pinning the blame on anyone and asked that his words not be distorted let's take a quick look. we see that the british authorities are becoming ever more nervous and it's clear why the clock is ticking they have backed themselves into a corner they will eventually have to provide an increasing number of unanswered questions we expect from london and from the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons and official account of developments regarding the scruple case we need comprehensive conclusions and detailed confirmations a spokesperson for the defense ministry also spoke out he said that it seems that britain is afraid to conduct an unbiased investigation into the skakel case and that the u.k. presented no proof that gas illogically used to poison scruple was made in russia he went on to say that the formula of the subs and not the child was published by
6:23 am
scientists. who is working with the us government the russian foreign ministry went on to talk specifically about britain and said it was and is one of the states that have been implementing a program on the development of new chemical weapons since one thousand nine hundred seventy s. he added that the porton down lap in britain is used to conduct in spite of months involving use of chemical weapons now we did have a reaction from a london embassy spokesperson who stated that moscow doesn't have to present anything in terms of scope or case but is ready for a joint investigation london has proposed a dialogue over this case. however it doesn't see a constructive approach from moscow now the past is that did not attend britain u.s. and france britain and the u.s. sent embassy workers instead a crimp spokesperson reacted to the u.k. decision by saying that it showed willingness to hear russia's answers to its questions that moscow to date has denied any involvement in the attempted murders.
6:24 am
and so this diplomatic spat that has gone on for a while now looks to continue to go on for some time former russian officer was jailed in russia for handing secrets to british intelligence move to the u.k. spy swap and twenty three weeks ago his daughter were found critically ill in salisbury u.k. police expect their probe on the alleged poisoning to take months however british politicians very quick to pin the blame on moscow britain's foreign secretary becoming the latest to lash out. as they responded with. distortion and delay and that is their tactic. this information middling in european election campaigns to say nothing of election campaigns. has got to be moved. i want to be very clear that
6:25 am
we do wish to engage in a new cold war. that. i remember. the british foreign secretary there boris johnson has been one of the most outspoken in blaming russia but his latest claim is particularly worrying. they go. the roads like to walk. the way he was one hundred thirty six. so i think the comparison with nine hundred thirty six is is right that's a p.r. effort on bars johnson's part actually look the british government is not treating this event as a criminal investigation they're using it as an opportunity to spread more bellicose rhetoric against russia and it's up to the cruising party to present the evidence first and then the defense will counter that so britain has presented no evidence whatsoever of russia's involvement in this to this point. but the russia
6:26 am
blame game has extended into areas once considered beyond a political point scoring london correspondent anastasio truck and i filed an educational project that appears to have found inspiration from boris johnson himself what's better than helping the young to try to maneuver the ever tricky world of global current affairs. the day is an online news service that is used by one in three u.k. schools teaches my periods from the schools use around schools and activities across all subjects for lessons homework research. here's a one handed to tory on provided by the service to help educate the young and broaden their horizons talks of putin on mission to poison west out and among questions to discuss is putin europe's most dangerous leader since hitler was this guy. tell
6:27 am
students out topics like the ongoing fight scandal where an investigation is still underway are broken down despite this incriminating evidence of international outrage. everything in case there's confusion still there is a dictionary included which. weans the meaning of the word marks surely this teaches you to put things into perspective. you know which off blitzkrieg are also if you hear a military talk to designed to crush the enemy with overwhelming force a short space of time coincidentally be missed. in world war two just to make it a bit easier to connect the dots brutal assassinations cyber attacks as well as plotting the downfall of western democracy also laid out as food for thought you decide section let students consider the following questions it's putin the most dangerous man in the world did the cold war ever end as well as what impression does putin give about what russia is like doing help students develop information
6:28 am
literacy and critical thinking prepares them for the challenges ahead of the changing world critical thinking is key the toxic putin class is dismissed and associates are going to party wanted. was one of the issues that they discussed and exclusive interview with russian presidential spokesperson dmitri peskov you can watch the full interview on friday for now here's a preview. first we we have to remember the starting point is the words of president putin that russia has nothing to do with this accident. this is number one number two. we're now speaking about. attempt to murder to murder russian spy in great britain where speaking about attempt to murder a british spy and great britain he was
6:29 am
a british spy he's a british spy he's not a russian spy. well he's a russian citizen but he's no directions but he was and did in. to britain as a result of exchange so why would russia hand in command that is of any importance or that is of any value it's unimaginable so even if he's handed in so russia quits with him he's of zero value of zero importance go ahead so this is number one number two. words of president putin. where not as crazy as to is to even to think about something of that kind. before presidential elections and before such important event global event as.
6:30 am
football championship. number three. the first blaming. came from politicians just a couple of hours after the accident a couple of hours after the accident where heard first blaming of russia that highly likely russia was responsible of that murder of attempted murder and now what we see we see words of experts and experts of organization for four or four. p.c. w. . that say that the preliminary examining of this agent will take about three weeks is it contradictory.
