you're naughty international ahead of the g. seven summit in canada world leaders joined forces against their biggest ally the united states over its unilateral policy. you don't get maybe the american president doesn't mind being isolated today but we also don't mind being six if need be. can be gotten in massachusetts causes concern to teaching children a nursery rhyme about how to survive a gun rampage. over ninety two million accounts at the d.n.a. testing platform my heritage is raising concerns about the safety of sensitive information. for it is a friday june the eighth here in moscow on the moments after eight o'clock in the morning welcome. the program when r.t. ends and. the g. seven summit in canada is taking place amid tensions between traditional allies the
3:05 am
leaders of the world's biggest economies have rounded on the u.s. over its imposition of have fifty metals tariffs the french president emanuel macron has even suggested that america could find itself excluded you don't maybe the american president doesn't mind being isolated today but we also don't mind being six if need be and this seems like a donald trump himself is preparing for a tough atmosphere at the g. seven he has tweeted that he is ready for a fight with his fellow world leaders over the issues of trade later he tweeted that the european union itself is charging the u.s. massive tariffs ati's donald quarter looks at the impact of some of trump's latest policies the g. seven summit seems already destined for dysfunction with a heap of complaints from the u.s. as european allies some are suggesting a name change to keep up with the times. we should have been united stewing to save
3:06 am
them to the group to try the engines of the world and instead of that we would be divided between not just certain it would be a g six one it's not too hard to see where the fallout between washington and the rest of the pack is coming from in just two years donald trump has caused serious problems for a major international agreements first by announcing he was ditching the paris climate accord then the iran nuclear agreement the breakthrough deal which took years to negotiate and now he's unleashed a trade war with the e.u. by slapping tariffs on their steel and aluminum. the united states will withdraw from the iran's nuclear deal the united states will withdraw from the paris climate accord the united states has been taken advantage of by other countries both friendly and not so friendly for many many decades and i'm here to
3:07 am
protect and one of the reasons i was elected is on protecting our workers on protecting our companies even the angle of merkel who is known for maintaining her cool during the worst diplomatic spats has had some strong words to share about the u.s. as recent exits. it is clear that especially with the exit of the u.s. from the climate deal there is dissent within the g seven just as much as with the announcement of tariffs on the new medium and steel which we believe are illegal and also the issue of the iranian nuclear deal which the u.s. has withdrawn from. moreover merkel warned of this lack of compromise may lead to the g seven failing to issue a joint statement that would make this year's summit in toronto the first ever and without a communique and chances are high it will with the french president emanuel macron also rumored to be unwilling to sign a joint paper with trump on love. he makes some concessions and makes an effort to
3:08 am
mend all the multilateral deals he's junked which most likely will not actually according to his economic advisor this row is no big deal at all. there may be disagreements. i regard this as. much like a family quarrel we will do what is necessary to protect the united states its businesses and its workforce don't blame trump. blame the nations that have broken away from those conditions blame the other countries now that's what you want to hear right before a g. seven summit donald quarter r t. we heard from ron polled former u.s. presidential candidate and founder of the ron paul institute for peace and prosperity he believes the hostility of the g. seven summit will yield nothing positive. and maybe they think travel back down which he might you know a lot of times look at hostel he was to north korea and all of
3:09 am
a sudden you know his tune changed right now he might be just maneuvering they're betting on that and he has done that on foreign policy but there are certain things that he does not back down on for instance he did he campaigned on and he did not back down on or on iran and that's why we're moving in this direction so maybe he'll stick to his guns on these on these tariffs. and i think it'll be interesting and and worth watching over this weekend but i just don't think anything real positive is coming out because i don't think they talk about the real problems that cause that are our climate of hostility and trading and coming up with this but there are certain things that he does not back down on for instance he did he campaigned on me did not back down in on or on iran and that's why we're moving in this direction so maybe he'll stick to his guns on these on these tariffs
3:10 am
but they're they're punishing us the american taxpayer the american consumer is punishing. so it really doesn't make any sense when the europeans spoke out after trump took us out of the nuclear agreement with iran a movie europeans will stand up to it this is business and that's why europeans you know over getting to like this idea of buying and selling with the iranians but all of a sudden i think that the noise that we hear now is well we we have to be careful and maybe they think truffle backdown which he might you know a lot of times look at hostile he was to north korea. another story ryan but a massachusetts kindergarten designed to help children survive a potential shooting has drawn concern from parents and outrage on social media some have questioned its appropriateness in a country that's seen at least one shooting a week this year although it is those who defended the rhyme saying quote this is the world we live in america in reports. bashing picking up your five year old from
3:11 am
kindergarten and seeing a strange nursery rhyme to the wall a reworked version of twinkle twinkle little star with ominous lyrics look down look down at the door shut the lights off say no more go behind the desk and hide wait until a safe inside look down look down it's all done now it's time to have some fun. that picture was posted by a massachusetts mom who was taken aback when she learned her daughter had been doing active shooter drills as part of her pre-kindergarten program but she's not the only one another mom had a similar experience my girls were playing teacher this past weekend they had math time snack time and practice their active shooter drew earlier this week a class of a graders in pennsylvania were given bullet proof shields for the backpacks a local sports were company thought it would be a perfect gift for a middle school graduation the company's c.e.o. who happens to have
3:12 am
a daughter at that school gifted shields to all of her classmates and an extra twenty five to the school in the time of leave. miss to the gym put it on this way. to school you can hold it up to protect their base although perhaps it's worth noting bullet proof shields don't provide protection against assault weapons which have been most commonly used mash units but the company won plenty of publicity with such an unconventional graduation gift and there are also those who try to make money off the mass shootings last month a video game designed to simulate a school shooting sparked a major public outrage and this one moved from a distributing. it offer to users an opportunity to play as either the killer or a swat officer going to catch the gun the. parents were outraged and why wouldn't they be this year alone. country has seen
3:13 am
a twenty three school shootings where someone was either injured or killed after just one such incident every single week so far so it's not surprising that passions are making a video games and active shooter drills to schools and even. to me up on our watch . it is our international over ninety two million accounts have been hacked at the genealogy platform my heritage sure services include d.n.a. tests of the breach has raised concerns about security something the company reportedly prides itself on.
3:14 am
my heritage it lets users identify their family trees and so it's for potential relatives and twenty sixteen it launched a d.n.a. service now it was founded in israel in two thousand and three and today has ninety five million users around the world about one point four million of them have taken the d.n.a. test the company says that the ninety two million affected accounts of how the e-mail and possible data compromised but it insists the d.n.a. data is safe as this is located in separate systems with additional layers of security there has been no evidence that the data in the file was ever used by the perpetrators we believe the intrusion is limited to user e-mail addresses we have no reason to believe that any other my heritage systems were compromised. since the leak of the company has added to factor authorization to would systems and now you know cohen and internet lore expert explains why personal data leaks makes users vulnerable. the response of course is that the date will get will find
3:15 am
a place into insurance companies hands where decision will be made on the basis of the information continue to vapor but why the implication of being religious lation similar to money laundering slater's about that should be date along the ring legislation in dozen of these regimes those laws will ensure that any organisation they use is they going to fix individual is actually able to track back to the source of the data. but the syrian army having driven out the last terrorists from the outskirts of the capital damascus civilians are now returning to their homes for many there is very little to come back to some areas are unrecognizable clothing for example a former school. this
3:16 am
used to be my school i could never imagine how badly destroyed it would be but still this is a school a place where small kids can they be told by these murals. that you. are something of a. card gun so this was my class look what i saw has done to nothing is left they destroyed everything they have been no blood placards or slogans and almost here are covered with ice and it's. really hard to sort. them from the cover and i thought that she would turn the library into a religious one there were children's book here mickey mouse and so on now everything is covered with terrorist signs.
3:17 am
this is the international thanks for joining us so far we have plenty of stories still to come on the program today including the french president's efforts to rid the world of fake news about being branded a state censorship about it and more after the break. the transatlantic relationship is had many ups and downs since its inception after the second world war it is said this relationship is whether these moments of tensions and differences due to american leadership enter donald trump can the transatlantic relationship survive the current occupant in the white house. seemed wrong. just don't call. me. yet to shake out this day. and in. the trailer.
3:18 am
when some find themselves. we choose to look for common ground. join me every thursday simon chill and i'll be speaking to us from the world of politics. i'm sure i'll see you then. just past the hour here in moscow nato's annual military drills along the russian border cold strike got off to a bit of a rocky start for vehicles smashed into each other on a road in lithuania injuring thirteen troops peter all of a takes a closer look at the blocks show of force along the russian border around eighteen thousand troops from nineteen different countries
3:19 am
a taking part in nato use so you both strike eighteen military maneuvers. those at the very top of the alliance say that despite all those troops and all of the military hardware heading in the general direction of russia this operation is not designed as a provocation to moscow nato has what we call the dual track of course the rest. which is about that we need stronger tones a strong defense combine that with political dialogue because we're not aiming at isolating russia. russia so a neighbor russia said to stay but that's not the way russia sees it these maneuvers and the announcement by warsaw at the end of last month that poland wants
3:20 am
to see a permanent u.s. base on its soil being described by kremlin spokes person as a source of potential instability in europe when we see the gradually expansion of nato military struggle choose to wards our borders this of course in no way create security and stability on the continent just last week angle a merkel endorsed plans for a european defense force sometimes called p a u army that's as well as germany remaining committed to nato she went on to say that the two percent of g.d.p. aim for nato members to finance the alliance wasn't just some fetish but left wing opposition here in germany say that the chancellor's current tack is taking the country down a militarized route that they're not happy with there's a reality of the situation is that now we have too many maneuvers in the last four years we've had four times more maneuvers than the russian side of course those
3:21 am
maneuvers do not help in establishing trust this is a form of escalation we can see that close to the russian border nato's demonstrating massive weapon systems with increased personnel which is creating an end secure atmosphere as the russians respond to that in their own way and we can see the situation escalating we are to militarized the german. terese budget is close to forty billion euros and that makes it the ninth largest army in the world in terms of spending the german army is already strong enough maybe even too strong in relation to the threat level we have always despite those concerns it's full steam ahead to save historic maneuvers which critics claim a little more than faber rattling peter all of a r.t. . well the french president's bid to tackle fake news on the national level has been slammed by m.p.'s in parliament france spoke to several lawmakers who warned
3:22 am
that the government backed bill takes the country in a dangerous direction problem is the enforcement of this law will put us in the position where this state decides what is truth and what is not i'm extremely concerned because this law is actually gased freedom of speech. are we going to ban and when russia today and sputnik if you want to ban what comes from the outside looking like fake news or what is coming from channels belonging to foreign governments you're not out of the woods yet it will be necessary to watch the b.b.c. morning and evening you better watch out just here every day and maybe some others will start to monitor france twenty four france twenty four may broadcast information that would be in the interests of the french. the so-called anti fake news law aims at tackling quote manipulation of information that allows parties to complain about news pieces that are deemed to be false or implausible but also
3:23 am
gives judges the power to ban the publication is now another aspect of the law as a monitoring about a foreign broadcasters such as our channel the french government and president himself have long been critical of the branding r.t. as propaganda our reporters have sometimes met resistance when trying to cover official events and friends. russia today and sputnik have not behaved as media outlets and journalists but as organs of influence and false propaganda. this is. the missing six real moment so you should be able to check with everything look up this it was like a. spiritual death. we spoke to a professor of media studies at the paris institute of political studies for. he believes that banning certain news outlets only draws more attention to the. this
3:24 am
points aimed at specifically russian media because at the time when the law was imagined everybody thought that the russian with responsible for what happened in the united states since then there was last an investigation very very few evidence concerning the russian could backfire because basically if you sense for something you're going to point everybody's attention to it and there is no way you can censure efficiently the internet so everybody will be looking for this century news and because it's censured many many people in france who believe that the truth even though it's probably not there's no foreign media in the country available to the french audience i mean what foreign media or to the news which is not really widespread in france let's be honest here. to internet providers that home for those are the two major internet providers that in france for those of you
3:25 am
don't know you have t.v. with your internet provider i don't have power to news on my t.v. so i don't have access to the news other than having access using the internet online on the web so it's not going to change much honestly there's nothing to be afraid of. so the world cup is literally just around the corner and then the additional hundred thousand tickets are up for grabs today they go on sale at eight pm g.m.t. meanwhile national teams have started arriving in russia ahead of the tournament spain and panama have started training in the host cities where they'll be playing the chairmanship kicks off in less than a week on june fourteenth with the opening match between russia and saudi arabia taking place in moscow's luzhniki state. stan collymore show explores all things football ahead of the tournament and the latest episode he looks at street child campaign it's a movement that helps children from developing countries get involved in the
3:26 am
beautiful game and for the meantime we'll show you the latest from stan collymore more of the program to come your way shortly. the street child world cup takes disadvantaged children from across the world russia england the united states is back east pakistan it's the third world cup the first is in south africa the second in brazil world cup legend you bet so silva is one of the supporters let's watch the tournament take place here does all come out every year. we open the stands we've got team india giving you lots of passionate support to their country team india tike you know why. they say is the price for the street child woke up when is the girls and the boys
3:27 am
fighting for this fantastic trophy and they'll go home as world champions i move over here for. quite a long time you know the last time when they were in brazil i was there for the first time since then was so difficult to just get away from them because you know so much passion here from what they do for these kids is amazing their way to work i'm feel proud to be here and they for media for me this kind of environment you know because i look at my background and joined him here and some think i feel very close just the part that they're able to play people in their own community is good is safer than what we have say out there but to be able to come over here and take part in this competition is a wonderful competition they get us army and people from all over the world and then they take that experience they go back to rio they go back to their community and this is hey guys there's a world out there and there's other people like us all over the world that have got
3:28 am
potential just like us. tell us how you. we have won the world cup oh i feel so proud of them and. so the brazilian goals have was the wounds straight chalta is this a good omen for brazil will say. not
3:29 am
. at sort of. four men are sitting in a car when the fifth gets shot in the head. all
3:30 am
four different versions of what happened one of them is on the death row there's no way he could have done it there's no possible way because the list does not share around a corner. as it stands now the united states north korea's summit is gone and slated to happen next week mr trump has softened his tone on the north korean leader and kim jong un has removed several of his top hardline military advisors what's it all mean and one can the. world expect when these two mecurio leaders meet face to face i'm going to go one on one with the former director of national intelligence john negroponte for his take on this edition of politics.
3:31 am
or go to politic in on larry king after several fits and starts the historic summit between the united states and north korea appears to be back on slated to begin next week in singapore after months of heavy rhetoric from both sides american president donald trump has toned down his criticisms and threats directed that kim jong un and the north korean leader in turn has removed a couple of his hardline advisors who intelligence officials believe would have fought against any concessions about the future of the hermit nation's nuclear weapons program what can we expect from the meeting in singapore what will be considered success for mr trump let's talk about that with john negroponte a great american formerly served as the u.s. deputy secretary of state who's the first ever director of national intelligence and that this is by george w. bush he also served as u.s. ambassador to iraq the u.n.
3:32 am
the philippines mexico and honduras the embassador joins me from washington mr ambassador what's your assessment of the administration's handling of this whole korean situation so far. well mercurial is right i mean it's been kind of up and down but it seems to be in a good place right now larry and looks like the meeting is going to go forward i think the president's right to try and manage expectations you can't solve everything overnight but you could have a meeting that gives us a sense of direction where these talks are going to go and of course what we want to see is the denuclearization of the korean peninsula and i think that the real big question is is kim jong un the leader of north korea prepared to give up his nuclear program in exchange for a peace treaty and restoration an end to the korean war on that peninsula and
3:33 am
reintegration with the global economy including trade with the united states japan korea south korea and so forth his good it's going to be interesting his getting rid of those three in town hawks in north korea and going to more in the middle is that encouraging well you know i don't want to read the tea leaves too much because in politics. you never really know but when you sit back for a minute and think about it. you've got to ask yourself nuclear weapons for what he's gone he's got a capability now of i think he's got seven or eight nuclear weapons he's got this capacity to create fissionable material but what's he want to get for that does he want to be isolated do they want to be the hermit kingdom forever or has he threw partly through his education in europe and then watching what's happening in south
3:34 am
korea which is become a real economic powerhouse does he say to himself well we're missing on something here we're missin out and maybe i can trade this nuclear capacity for you know the bent of the economic and material benefit of of my people and my country how do you know when you go to a summit you've been around this a long time how much of that is pre-planned how much do your advisors and their advisors sit down and say this will be on the table this will be on the table here's what we hope to accomplish well usually these things are pretty well choreographed i mean i went for example with richard nixon and henry kissinger to his summit with loney brezhnev back in one nine hundred seventy two and we'd pretty much choreographed that down to a tee and that's what i've seen happen in other situations but. as you know mr
3:35 am
trump believes in is a real believer in spontaneity and intuition and i think it's that spot knew it needed in an intuition that has brought him to this particular place so how scripted it's going to be i don't know but that that's going to be one of the things where are we going to what are we going to get out of this in terms of the direction that these contacts any go because one thing is for certain. nothing it can't be resolved all in one session and the best we can hope for is some positive thrust positive sense a direction of where further contacts may go and follow up teams might negotiate and we know that mr trump can be off the wall anything can happen in a one on one with him we know that kim jong un we don't what do we know about kim jong il and what do you expect personality wise from these two high and well i mean these are two quite interesting people i don't think widely
3:36 am
understood as we said mr trump has a penchant for spontaneity but i get a sense even though it's just a hunch of my own that in fact. they might well you know get along with each other and hit it off pretty well and i think mr trump is counting on that one thing i'm pretty sure of i feel pretty confident of is that both of these leaders would like to see these talks succeed i think they want to accomplish something i think mr. kim jong un for his reasons that we've already discussed and i think mr trump in order to establish himself as a statesman as and as somebody who can negotiate. important deals and important arrangements in the global arena. it's ok he's putting kim jong un on the
3:37 am
world stage though isn't he so it's a plus already for kim jong un yeah if you look at it as sort of a you know tit for tat kind of. game where maybe he's going to make a few concessions in order to get some sanctions relief but why not look at it another way for a moment but if you put a little more optimistic interpretation on it maybe he's made a strategic decision that he no longer that he wants to to basically trade this nuclear weapons capability for a more solid and healthy and prosperous relationship with the rest of the world and if he's really made that strategic decision i think the two gentlemen are going to find quite a bit to talk about what's china's role in all of this do they want to see north korea denuclearize its weaponry. i think they probably do i think first of all
3:38 am
china's role is that they're an immediate neighbor. they are very affected by what happens in north korea for example if there is a famine like there was in past years they get refugees coming across the border north korea's got a certain degree of economic dependence on china for energy products and for food so they're very sensitive to what happens in north korea but but the north koreans on the other hand have a time shown that they're capable of. acting quite independently of china but they they certainly want to be in on the deal and aware of what's kept informed of what's going on and ultimately if if some kind of agreement is finally reached they are going to be one of the guarantors of whatever arrangements are made because let's not forget that the combatants the parties that were fighting in the korean war were the united states china the south korean forces and north korea so they have a stake in this and
3:39 am
a historic historic role we haven't heard much from our allies what do you think they're thinking. well i think wait well we know one thing south korea seems to want this and south korea they're they're in a phase you know they tend to go up and down on this issue over the years but this seems to be a south korean administration that wants to come to terms with the north and they're very enthusiastic about this upcoming meeting and the efforts to to come closer to north korea and they themselves have agreed to a series of follow on meetings that are going to take place over the next weeks over it to discuss different topics so i think that that's that's important the most affected if you will ally is very interested enthusiastic about this process the other country that of course is an ally and has. learns is the country of japan they've always been
3:40 am
a bit leery of north korea they've got these abducted japanese people who've been abducted to north korea over the years that's been a real sore point in the bilateral relationship between them and north korea and of course they don't want us to agree to some thing that maybe prevents north korea from having intercontinental ballistic missiles but still enables north korea to aim ballistic missiles at them because they're really nearby so that they have a real stake in in this situation and where we're obviously taking their concerns into account we have prime minister who's in town here in washington right now to consult with the president. i'm assuming that it's going to be his their talks are going to be mostly about the situation on the korean peninsula what's russia's role well another neighbor and so they you can't you can't count them out of
3:41 am
a stock is within range of those north korean missiles and of course their role historically goes all the way back to world war two in the korean war and so forth but when we had in the bush administration the george w. bush administration those six party talks they were one of the countries involved along with china north korea south korea japan and ourselves so their stakeholders i would call them not as immediate stakeholders but you can't you don't want to exclude them from the process either and they certainly need to be kept informed what do you think of the idea of the proposed summit between putin and trump. well sooner or later that that that may happen i think maybe there i really would say that some stuff has to happen in between and some better you know some
3:42 am
preparation things are not on such a good footing at the moment between the united states and russia and i think we do want to clarify what it is they're going to talk about and so forth then whatever happens you don't want nothing against some a tree but you don't want to summit meeting to in any way shape or form give the impression that we are ratifying the russian anik sation of crimea that would be one of my concerns last month the president declared we have decimated isis. says december declaration that the us military is not the hell out of the islamic state have we. well we don't we've done pretty well and i think about it in the spring summer of two thousand and fourteen when isis was captured the city of mosul in iraq and then went rolling down the highway there and captured to create and fallujah and all those places and now with our help the government of
3:43 am
iraq has succeeded in pushing the isis out of there out of all those places and inflicted a lot of casualties on them so i think they're on their back foot you never can count these people out entirely because they they reappear in some other form in some other place but i think their ability to conduct kind of main force operations which they were doing at one point and to hold on to large pieces of territory or to hold on there was a city like mosul i think those days are behind them so i think it's right to say that considerable success has been achieved against isis john stay right there we'll have some more moments with john negroponte more politicking after the break .
3:44 am
3:45 am
that. kid. can manage. those who don't concern themselves into a jellyfish deal in the sand on the song in that equals on its own citizens of what he calls a stance me. cause i don't we don't sell him till you've got to those off putting in a solicitous out acid all to the sitting on a. dime
3:46 am
just getting international recognition with the help of israel at least in the world of zeus a member will fit to commission to do it loving you i commit these with my compass is going out the study hall may be a bit. old john. the only palestinians who gets the most help from its jerusalem counterparts i don't think there is some of those ruined who were under the oak vision of no one who could do this. and the earth zoloft at that age got to this lady of the most of the i'm going to continue muslims you know do more commandments also don't piss off.
3:47 am
back to politicking i'm talking with john negroponte the former deputy secretary of state u.s. envoy to iraq and the u.n. was also the first ever director of national intelligence and bassam negroponte joins me from washington d.c. ok what do you make of our getting out of the iran treaty well that it first while i'm not surprised there was a lot of resistance to the agreement when it was first negotiated by the obama administration. and i think it shows frankly one of the problems that can arise if you have an agreement that has such a thin margin of support i think the founders the founding fathers created the treaty process for a reason as you know the treaty has to be approved by two thirds
3:48 am
a two thirds majority of the senate and this agreement was not a treaty it was an executive agreement and based on a very thin margin so what happens the new team comes in and they khana reopen the question and it doesn't and they're free to do that because the agreement doesn't have the force of a treaty so that's one point second thing is there are some things that could be improved in that agreement one of them is just the terminations date the fact that a it ends after fifteen years or so with respect to iran's nuclear program they can resume it after ten or fifteen year period i think that's problematic and so was the fact that they reduced they didn't impose serious restrictions on the iranian missile program so if i understand i think i understand why that is.
3:49 am
predictably it's become an issue between the united states and europe because the european countries were very much in favor of the agreement and they're now troubled by the fact that we're re imposing sanctions in or are probably going to impose these so-called secondary sanctions that will make it hard for european companies to do business with iran would you have supported iran breaking the leaving the agreement well i you know what i was a little bit agnostic i've i felt we rushed i think we were too eager. to get the agreement in in the first place i'm not sure i would have recommended breaking it just because. it was at least going to last for a decade or so and that there you know that might give time for other developments but i don't think it's shocking and i don't think it's necessarily poor diplomacy
3:50 am
at all and i don't think it's going to lead necessarily lead to conflict i think maybe the europeans and the iranians are going to have to think hard about well what is it one else is it they could do to make this agreement more acceptable to the united states the united states has recently said it is often said that we're going to pull out of syria all we. well we've got a couple of thousand troops there. in the eastern part of the country i believe that president trump doesn't want to keep american troops in syria indefinitely and yet the logic of the syrian situation is that as long as we have some troops there we have a voice in the future of the country where counterweights to the presence of the russians and i think we're a little bit of a guarantee for those who are fighting for. both against isis and for freedom
3:51 am
in their country i think if we were to withdraw precipitously this would be taken as a signal that we were wiping our hands of the syrian problem and that could well sure but shore al assad the ability to reassert his power over the entire country do you favor opening the embassy in jerusalem. not not especially i've always you know i'm a career diplomat i was in that business for a long long time and we always thought of the question of jerusalem as something to be settled and a final negotiation a status negotiation between the palestinians and the israelis on the other hand i think by moving there we're sort of recognizing a reality whenever i went to israel i'd have some meetings in tel aviv but i have
3:52 am
to meet the senior government officials i always have to go to jerusalem so clearly it's been treated as the capital of israel for a long long time and so long as they make some space allow some space in. east jerusalem for a future palestinian capital if they ever get to that point i think well you know that's that's ok john always great talking with you thank you so much for your time today yeah well thanks for having me larry always a pleasure on monday the special counsel filed a motion with the u.s. district court charging that there is probable cause to believe that paul now for violated the law by attempting to tamper witnesses while long pretrial release have these new charges are in mind and for a one way ticket to jail and will not make you more likely to strike a deal with mullen for this we turn to trent copeland criminal defense attorney and
3:53 am
legal analyst he joins me in studio ok what do you make of this you know look i think we can assess this on a couple levels right on the on the first big macro level number one this is an opportunity for the special counsel robert mueller to put the squeeze on man a for a little more right that's a big thing and certainly he's going to do that because are going to be facing what i think will be an almost certain. placement directly in the jail when he goes for that hearing that's a that's the first thing i think we look at this but also what a disastrous decision by paul man afford to when he knows he's under investigation when he knows he's been surveilled by law enforcement when he knows he's on a tight release to then go out and to make efforts to dissuade intimidate or whatever it was he did with these witnesses to coerce them with respect to the testimony to do that suggests to me a hubris and a lack of care for the process which i think is is fascinating if we're presuming
3:54 am
is innocence this certainly puts a cloud over that it's absolutely political on larry remember this is not only going to be use it to add additional charges because this this isn't another criminal charge this will also be used in his trial so jury will hear that he did this this will be use at his sentence and so a judge sentencing him will consider this and this just raises the possibility that the only way he could have thought to do this and could have done this in a way that he thought i was going away with this is that somewhere along the line he believes he'll never face justice because he believes he'll get a pardon from donald trump and do you believe he will you know look i think it raises the specter clearly and i'm not sure that donald trump is in a position frankly at this point to avoid having to deal with this issue because paul metaphor of paul metaphor is the key linchpin to determining with michael cohen by the way his personal lawyer there the two key linchpins to determine whether done from has engaged in some criminal conduct i think don't trump sooner
3:55 am
rather than later is going to be faced with the issue of do i pardon him now or do i wait and allow him to sit in jail and think about whether or not he wants to flip on me. who is bail being revoked i can't imagine how his bill won't be revoked where remember he was on a tight leash to begin with this judge gave him an extraordinarily high bail which he met but this judge indicate. added that you're on you're going to be under electronic surveillance this is very important that you honor the terms and conditions of your release and he chose not to i can imagine this judge will not put him back put him in jail. where do you stand on this twenty page memo and trump can't get the is subpoenaed he can't pardon him cells that all legal mishmosh well you know look first of all trump thinks that he can pardon him self and his has learnt his lawyers went out there on a speaking tour in indicated that they think he can pardon self and there's legal precedence for this article to lawyer and larry as a as
3:56 am
a constitutional follower and reader of the constitution i've taught it i will tell you there is nothing in article two that suggest that donald trump in any way or any president has a right to pardon himself so the executive power does not extend that way but the fact that donald trump is even floating this idea of rick's remember if you accept the pardon you are admitting and acknowledging guilt and the fact they don't trump is even floating this idea out there for the some of those people who are supporting dollar trump and like him or hate him point of the matter is he would be acknowledging that he engaged in some criminal conduct on some level so i think that's got to get the american public's attention you think leaked that memo. you know i don't know larry but i have to believe that it was certainly someone close to donald trump and his team because i think what they want to do is to increase the public disincentive a day to pardons but remember most presidents don't pardon individuals at this rate and when they do they do so at the end of their term and remember what pardons of
3:57 am
four pardons are to vindicate the american values for forgiveness and redemption and he's using these pardons almost trump is using these pardons to send messages to political allies to send messages to political adversaries to say listen i hold the trump card no pun intended i'm the guy with the ultimate power and this seems to me to be a clear abuse of the pardon power and people should understand when you accept the pardon you are admitting your guilt that's right you're admitting your guilt your acknowledging that you were engaged in criminal wrongdoing in the very nature of the president of the united states talking about whether or not he will pardon himself or pardon those people close to him is something that i think is beyond the pale as a difference in commuting his sentence and that you are you you're not saying you did it the community that's right and what they're indicating in a commutation is listen we're not going to go to the issue as to whether or not you're guilty or innocent but we are going to do is we're going to reduce your sentence that's a commutation and present trump has engaged in that as well and in addition to that
3:58 am
a pardon though separate and apart from coming taishan is listen we're saying you didn't engage in wrongdoing we're saying the justice department and whoever prosecutor you prosecuted you improperly we're going to end your sentence we're going to in your conviction we're going to raise there's holes going to you think mr counsel. well you know i think i thought larry when we were here last time we talked about that raid remember that raid that took place in the offices of the donald trump's personal counsel michael cohen i thought was an inflection point i thought that something was going to happen in this case very major and that the next she was about to drop but i think the real inflection point may be this new charge against paul man a for for interfering with witnesses because i think for the first time someone extraordinarily close to donald trump someone extraordinarily close to the inside of the workings of that campaign is now going to be facing criminal charges where
3:59 am
he may spend an inordinate amount of time in prison while he's awaiting trial and there don't trump will be faced with the issue of what do i do devised a white part in this guy do i sit back and i wait or do i trust the process and trust that he won't flip on me so i think that this case is certainly clearly going to be the inflection point that i thought we would have seen the michael cohen rate i think this case is moving in a direction where the president of the united states will be faced with the issue of do i pardon someone and i will not allow the justice system to run its course and do i pardon him in advance of him going to trial always great talking always good seeing where my flesh great guests great law great guy twenty and we thank him for joining us on this edition of politicking thank you to never you can join the conversation our facebook page or tweet me at kings things don't forget use the politicking hash tag and that's all for this edition of politicking.

4:01 am
join me every thursday on the alec simon show and i'll be speaking to guest on the world of politics school. i'm show business i'll see you then. i think you see a good bye. and it is a nuisance this is the only. church secret indeed just like priests accused of sexually abusing children can get away with it quite literally i like to call this the geographic solution so what the bishop needs to do then he finds out that the priest is is a perpetrator is simply moves him to a different spot were the previous standards not know the highest ranks of the catholic church help conceal the accused priests from the police and justice system to that it has not been as the end then i think that it is this sad and.
4:02 am
this. is first. get a phone you know what i am what was the last time that you went on the internet no i am not using to meet these village is it safe it was. a sure there is no music ters there they are all going to be sure the baby does a class here sort of but. i support the one and only the thought. is dead as part of the other so can give. all the work i was. previously yes and no they are being false form in

a very misleading member of the society. top headlines here on r.t. protests ahead of the g.
4:04 am
seven summit in canada as world leaders joined forces against their biggest ally the united states over its current unilateral policy. you don't get maybe the american president doesn't mind being isolated today but we also don't mind being six if need be a kindergarten in massachusetts causes concern after teaching children a nursery rhyme about how to survive a gun rampage. over ninety two million accounts because the d.n.a. testing platform my heritage is raising concerns about the safety of sensitive information. friday june the eighth and just after nine am here in moscow this is our teacher national mall of us here welcome to your new year's. the g.
4:05 am
seven summit will get underway amid tensions between traditional allies and on the streets almost a thousand protesters gathered to oppose the upcoming meeting leaders of the world's biggest economies around on the u.s. over its imposition of half. metals tariffs the french president emanuel micron has even suggested that america could find itself excluded the g seven. you don't maybe the american president doesn't mind being isolated today but we also don't mind being six if need be and it seems like donald trump himself is preparing for a tough gig at the g. seven he's tweeted that he's ready for a fight with his fellow world leaders over the issue of trade later he tweeted that the european union itself is charging the u.s. enormous tariffs. donald quarter takes a closer look the g seven june summit seems already destined for dysfunction with a heap of complaints from the u.s.
4:06 am
as european allies some are suggesting a name change to keep up with the times we should have been united stewing to save them to the group who challenges of the world and instead of that we would be divided between not just certain it would be a g six one it's not too hard to see where the fallout between washington and the rest of the pack is coming from in just two years donald trump has caused serious problems for a major international agreements first by announcing he was ditching the paris climate accord then the iran nuclear agreement the breakthrough deal which took years to negotiate and now he's unleashed a trade war with the e.u. by slapping tariffs on their steel and aluminum. the united states will withdraw from the iran's nuclear deal the united states will withdraw from the
4:07 am
paris climate accord the united states has been taken advantage of by other countries both friendly and not so friendly for many many decades and i'm here to protect and one of the reasons i was elected is on protecting our workers on protecting our companies even the angle of merkel who is known for maintaining her cool during the worst diplomatic spats has had some strong words to share about the u.s. as recent exits is clogged it is clear that especially with the exit of the u.s. from the climate deal there is dissent within the g seven just as much as with the announcement of tariffs on the new medium and steel which we believe are illegal and also the issue of the iranian nuclear deal which the u.s. has withdrawn from. moreover merkel warned of this lack of compromise may lead to the g seven failing to issue a joint statement that would make this year's summit in toronto the first ever and without a communique and chances are high it will with the french president emanuel macron
4:08 am
also rumored to be unwilling to sign a joint paper with trump unless he makes some concessions and makes an effort to mend all the multilateral deals he's jumped which most likely will not actually according to his economic advisor this row is no big deal at all. there may be disagreements. i regard this as. much like a family quarrel we will do what is necessary to protect the united states its businesses and its workforce don't blame trump. blame the nations that have broken away from those conditions blame the other countries now that's what you want to hear right before a g. seven summit donald corder r.t. . earlier we heard from wrong pole a former u.s. presidential candidate and the founder of the ron paul institute for peace and prosperity he believes this whole still a team the g. seven summit will yield nothing positive. and maybe they think truffle back
4:09 am
down which he might you know a lot of times look at hostile he was to north korea and all of a sudden you know his tune changed right now he might be just maneuvering they're betting on that and he has done that on foreign policy but there are certain things that he does not back down on for instance he did he campaigned on a did not back down in on or on iran and that's why we're moving in this direction so maybe he'll stick to his guns on these on these tariffs. and i think it'll be interesting and and worth watching over this weekend but i just don't think anything real positive is coming out because i don't think they talk about the real problems that cause are our climate of hostility and trading and coming up with this but there are certain things that he does not back down on for instance he did he campaigned on me did not back down in on or on iran and that's why we're moving
4:10 am
in this direction so maybe he'll stick to his guns on these on these tariffs but they're they're punishing us american taxpayer the american consumer is punishing. so it really doesn't make any sense when the europeans spoke out after trump took us out of the nuclear agreement with iran a movie europeans will stand up to it this is business and that's why europeans you and i were getting to like this idea of buying and selling with the iranians but all of a sudden i think that the noise that we hear now is well we we have to be careful. a nursery rhyme at a massachusetts contigo designed to help children survive a potential shooting has drawn concern from parents on shock on social media some of questioned its appropriateness in a country that seen at least one shooting a week this year wealth already has those who have defended the rhyme saying quote this is the world we live in samir khan reports. imagine picking up your five year
4:11 am
old from kindergarten and seeing a strange nursery rhyme to the wall a reworked version of twinkle twinkle little star with ominous lyrics look down look down at the door shut the lights off say no more go behind the desk and hide wait until it's safe inside look down look down it's all done now it's time to have some fun. that picture was posted by a massachusetts mom who was taken aback when she learned her daughter had been doing active shooter drills as part of her pre-kindergarten program but she's not the only one another mom had a similar experience my girls were playing teacher this past weekend they had math time snack time and practice their active shooter drew earlier this week because of a prater's in pennsylvania were given bullet proof shields for the backpacks a local sports were company thought it would be a perfect gift for a middle school graduation the company's c.e.o.
4:12 am
who happens to have a daughter at that school gifted shields to all of her classmates and an extra twenty five to the school in the time of need. let's do the same put it on this way. to school you can hold it up to protect their base although perhaps it's worth noting bullet proof shields don't provide protection against assault weapons which have been most commonly used mass shootings but the company won plenty of publicity with such an unconventional graduation gift and there are also those who try to make money off the mass shootings last month a video game designed to simulate a school shooting sparked a major public outrage and this one lul from a distributing. it offered to users an opportunity to play as either the killer or a swat officer going to catch the gunman. parents were outraged and why wouldn't they be this year alone the. three hundred
4:13 am
twenty three school shootings where someone was either injured or killed after just one such incident every single week so far so it's not surprising that passions are making it to video games and active shooter drills to schools and even kindergarten to me up on our watch. it is already international over ninety two million accounts have been hacked or the genealogy platform my heritage shoes are services include d.n.a. tests the breach as raise concerns about security something the company prides itself on. my heritage it lets users identify their family trees or even so much for relatives
4:14 am
and sixteen it launched a d.n.a. service and today it has ninety six million users around the world about one point four million of them have taken the d.n.a. test now when the breach was first discovered my heritage contacted users and offered the support of the company says that the ninety two million affected accounts only had their email and password data compromised and insists that old d.n.a. data are safe as this is located in separate systems with additional layers of security there has been no evidence that the data in the file was ever used by the perpetrators we believe the intrusion is limited to user e-mail addresses we have no reason to believe that any other my heritage systems were compromised. since the leaks the company says it has boosted security and yet cohen an internet law expert explains well why a personal data leaks makes users very vulnerable. the response of course is there
4:15 am
the date will get will find a place into insurance companies hands where decision will be made on the basis of the information continue to vapor but why the implication of being the religious lation theme allowed to money laundering the sleigh shoes but that should be date along the ring legislation endos of these lasers those laws will ensure are there any organisation they use is they individual actually able to track back at the source of the data. but the syrian army having driven out the last terrorists from the outskirts of damascus civilians are now returning to their homes of a many there is very little to come back to some areas are recognizable for example one for my school.
4:16 am
this used to be my school i could never imagine how badly destroyed it would be still this is a school a place where small kids can they be told by these murals. that you're. something of a. cut gun so this was my class look what i saw has done to nothing is left they destroyed everything and they have been no black placards or slogans and almost here are covered with ice almost. like this all rolled. up for the brother and i thought she turned the laundry into a religious one there were children's book here mickey mouse and song now everything is covered with terrorist signs.
4:17 am
that. were still to come here on the program the french president's efforts to rid the world of fake news are actually being branded as state censorship but that's in the mix of your stories and just on. a plate for many flips over the years so i know the game inside guides. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the super manager killian erroneous and spending tribute to the twenty million one player. it's an experience like nothing else on earth because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful guy like great so what will chance with. the face it's going to take.
4:18 am
seems. to me. to seem. to stay. active. and in. the trailer. when some find themselves. nato military drills right along the russian border cold strike got off to a bit of a rocky start for smashed into each other in lithuania injuring thirteen troops. a closer look at the bloc show of force right along the russian border around
4:19 am
eighteen thousand troops from nineteen different countries a taking part in nato so you both strike eighteen military maneuvers. those at the very top of the alliance say that despite all those troops and all of the military hardware heading in the general direction of russia this operation is not designed as a provocation to moscow nato has what we call the dual track of course the rest. which is about that we need stronger tones a strong defense combine that with political dialogue because we're not aiming at isolating russia. russia so
4:20 am
a neighbor russia said to stay but that's not the way russia sees it these maneuvers the announcement by warsaw at the end of last month that poland wants to see a permanent u.s. base on its soil being described by kremlin spokes person as a source of potential instability in europe when we see the gradually expansion of nato military structures towards our borders this of course in no way create security and stability on the continent just last week angola merkel endorsed plans for a european defense force sometimes called the a u army that's as well as germany remaining committed to nato she went on to say that the two percent of g.d.p. aim for nato members to finance the alliance wasn't just some fetish but left wing opposition here in germany say that the chancellor's current tack is taking the country down a militarized route that they're not happy with there's
4:21 am
a reality of the situation is that now we have too many maneuvers in the last four years we've had four times more maneuvers than the russian side of course those maneuvers do not help in establishing trust this is a form of escalation we can see that close to the russian border nato's demonstrating massive weapon systems with increased personnel which is creating an insecure atmosphere that the russians respond to that in their own way and we can see the situation escalating we are to militarized the german my. materials budget is close to forty billion euros and that makes it the ninth largest army in the world in terms of spending the german army is already strong enough maybe even too strong in relation to the threat level we have to resist despite those concerns it's full steam ahead to save historic maneuvers which critics claim a little more than faber rattling peter all of the. well the french president's bid to tackle fake news on the national level has been slammed by m.p.'s in parliament
4:22 am
francis spoke to several lawmakers who warned that the government backed by old takes the country in a dangerous direction. the problem is the enforcement of this law will put us in the position where the state decides what is truth and what is not i'm extremely concerned because this law is actually gased freedom of speech. are we going to ban and when russia today and sputnik if you want to ban what comes from the outside looking like fake news or what is coming from channels belonging to foreign governments you're not out of the woods yet it will be necessary to watch the b.b.c. morning and evening you better watch out zero every day and maybe some others will start to monitor france twenty four france twenty four may broadcast information that would be in the interests of the french. the so-called and he fake news law aims at tackling quote manipulation of information about us parties to complain
4:23 am
about news pieces that are deemed to be false or implausible the law also gives judges the powers of banned publications now another aspect of the lore is monitoring that of foreign broadcasters such as our channel the french government and president himself have long been critical of the branding it as propaganda our reporters have sometimes met with resistance when trying to cover official events and fronts. russia today have not behaved as media outlets and journalists because organs of influence and false propaganda. this is. the mr six young moment so should the play people should live with. this it was a commitment with. the children to. the solution. we spoke to professor of media studies at the paris institute of political studies mr fabrice. he believes that banning certain news outlets only draws more attention to
4:24 am
them this point aimed at specifically russian media because at the time when the law was imagined everybody thought that the russian with responsible for what happened in the united states since then there was last an investigation very very few evidence concerning the russian could backfire because basically if you sense for something you're going to point everybody's attention to it and there is no way you can censure efficiently the internet so everybody will be looking for this century news and because it's censured many many people in france who believe that's the truth even though it's probably not there's no foreign media in the country available to the french audience i mean what foreign media news which is not really widespread in france let's be honest here. to internet providers at home for an hour and so those are the two major internet providers
4:25 am
that in france for those of you don't know you have t.v. with your internet provider i don't have r.t. news on my t.v. so i don't have access to the news other than having access using the internet online on the web so it's not going to change much honestly there's nothing to be afraid of. the world cup is judge. just around the corner and an additional one hundred thousand tickets are up for grabs today and they do go on sale at eight pm g.m.c. meanwhile national teams have started arriving here in russia ahead of the tournament spain and panama have started training at the host cities where they will be playing the championship kicks off in less than a week on june the fourteenth with the opening match between russia and saudi arabia taking place in moscow's luzhniki stadium. stan collymore show the whole program that he's been producing now exploring all things football the head of the tournament and the latest episode he looks at the street child campaign

4:31 am
tough. kid. does she don't consume you can and often do little to deal with the stink on the us from in that equal distances muslims are what equals a stance me. because i don't need an pseudo name to. deal with that devotional putting innocence on this is a downside acid old. sort
4:32 am
of that shevardnadze controversies surrounding the poisoning of x. . has plunged relations between moscow and london into another crisis what is the way out of the deadlock while i ask lord peter truscott a member of the u.k.'s house of lords and former member of the european parliament . and you wrists between the u.k. and russia is one thing following this case london is running its european neighbors against moscow lobbying for new sanctions and a joint diplomatic effort with the u.k. on its way out of the european union county council to have its back how does going
4:33 am
to brussels for help go along with tough negotiations will the new russian moves actually accomplish anything for the united kingdom. lord peter truscott welcome to the show it's really great to have you with us now had edmonds five recently said that the kremlin is to chief protagonists in the come pain to undermine the west while the russian government want that i mean the e.u. being russia's number one trading partner means that russia can be strong with the west being weak well i think you know this is this is this is the sort of the position of not just the u.k. government but other governments as well in the west i think it's sort of unfortunately all be this historic patent of wanting to contain russia and seeing russia in a poem and this is really goes back to the formation of nato really in the one nine hundred forty s. which was established as an anti soviet military. and of course there was that
4:34 am
there was a hope that things would improve all for the. the fall of the berlin wall and the breakup of the soviet union but unfortunately that house hasn't developed as many people hoped you even have people like james baker the former u.s. secretary of state saying in one thousand nine hundred three that russia could perhaps join nato and then i think there was a lost opportunity there at the end of the calamity like broke into the us or i should joining nato is nato was originally created to counter soviet union in big part russia i mean medo in itself with russia in it is absolute it doesn't make any sense anyway so the guardian has reported that u.k. is planning to use upcoming summits like the g seven g twenty nato and the e.u. gatherings to tighten the diplomatic front against russia do you think the foreign office will succeed. look i think i just did it just going back to the just turn back to the whole nato thing i think if nato was norm's. pact designed to counter
4:35 am
russian the soviet union there's no reason why this as a collective security organization that russia couldn't join not think about what's the point point about russia joining nato or not joining nato and i think president putin has has talked about that. so it's not beyond the realms of possibility well you know i think i think times times are changing you know i mean since the second a war they have british foreign policy has basically been to keep close to the united states as possible on the clear reasons for that britain relied on the united states from that perspective to defend them against the strength of the soviet union and that was the first thing and british policy has always been that if we wanted to influence will the phase we needed to stay close to the united states an un trying to influence them through to our advantage but the world has changed i think the the will that existed before where you had one hyper power off
4:36 am
of the fall of the berlin wall and breakup of the soviet union or the united states is no longer the case you have rising china where it's already the population john is almost one in six of the world's population it's already overtaken the united states in economic terms in terms of. spending power and. you know the actually standard of living in terms of the growth that's down to living in china the growth of the economy so the world is changing and i think the united kingdom needs to bear that in mind when it comes to foreign policy for the future so i feel like you know russia being this infernal anime is like at very confortable thing to have for many western countries for many razors force and u.k. defense secretary kevin williamson has recently appealed for more defense funding citing russia's resurgence under putting and you may remember his predecessor michael fallon using the very same language when. asking for increased a fan spammy i mean that this is russia card work like flawlessly every time here
4:37 am
are the fans secretaries just happy about putin's emits fitting their budgets well i mean the first thing is the u.k. defense forces are underfunded i mean the army has not been a small since the time of the napoleonic war but i think you need to get this in perspective nato spending already is collectively twenty times out of russia so russia is in terms of its spending on military force it is still some way behind nato as i say there has been this sort of ratcheting up of rhetoric in terms of the security threat that russia poses but i mean the world is actually facing a bigger threat from say international terrorism which clearly we've seen both on the streets of british cities and across europe and indeed in russia and notably of course the middle east so i would say that the greatest threat to the existential threat to the west and other countries of the world is actually international
4:38 am
terrorism and there are other areas that we need to work together fighting for example the global trade in drugs people trafficking and there are areas where we need to work together to bring peace notably syria iraq is still an issue afghanistan and the latest example in north korea as well where president trump and his administration is working to achieve good denuclearize ation in the korean peninsula these are all areas that we should be working together not focusing on what is effectively cold war rhetoric sometimes for from both sides and we need to actually move away from that and some of the rhetoric has not been very helpful in terms of engagement on to in terms of developing world peace so how far do you think london will go and confronting russia can it afford to i mean for instance cut financial ties with russia all together with all they were russian investment in the u.k. do you think they can do that. well i mean russia is not
4:39 am
a major in would invest the the u.k. and the united states is major and would invest the fronts for example of a you country's major investors but it will have a disproportionate effect if for example russians do not invest in the u.k. we've already seen that every move it has said that he'll council the one billion pound development of a football stadium in west london which will fit about local economy in the london economy so there will be a cost to taking this sort of action of course i'm not against the u.k. or other countries fighting an influx of dirty money because we all know where the oligarchs in the early one nine hundred ninety s. got their money from with the breakup of the soviet union and a lot of the wealth does this imply to russia ended up in the hands or in seasons because you just brought him up as an example because he's money seems to be quite transparent clint what do you read into roman opera moche as workmen's and that being renewed in the u.k.
4:40 am
is this a very first of many more refusals to come well you know clearly clearly it's political but what you know what i've said to the government security minister you've got a security minister ok to tackle dirty money and tackle criminality that that's fair enough but you need to be objective and do it across the board not just russian oligarchs who let's face it virtually a lot of them a quad their wealth in in devious manner in the early ninety nine s. but also taking on maybe dubious saudi princes money from africa dirty money from africa or in china so if we are going to tackle the influx of dirty money then we need to do it across the board and it should be for moral reasons for economic reasons it shouldn't be politically motivated and i think the danger really because we only need to individuals like political motivations are said to do we agree that in opera mochi skase this is politically moderated rather than. and. tackling dirty money well i mean the government with would say
4:41 am
well they're not saying actually that german. money was dirty they would say that they were merely looking into his case and there was no decision on that they haven't they haven't said that i remembered his wealth came from those sort of sources i just saying that you know under the new visa rules and needing to look into these cases in more detail but i think i think it's pretty clear that a lot of gox and other people that have seemed to be close to president putin have come under increased scrutiny i'm not it's being primarily for political reasons so we need to separate the political motivation for some of these actions and the economic and moral reasons for. this sort of action i mean the city of london needs to be seen to be very clean and that's fair enough but we need to do it on a rational basis noughts and all the purely political basis to see if there is any
4:42 am
chance that economic pressure will force u.k. leaders to rethink the sanctions because right now the number stands at ten billion reportedly lost every year due to the anti russian measures well you know i think i am actually opposed to the sanctions against russia entirely for the reason that i don't think sanctions will work if you look at cuba over the last fifty years the sanctions had no impact whatsoever in changing the policy of the leadership of cuba sanctions a useful in terms of bringing people to the negotiating table but there's no sign actually that the west has any desire to bring brusha russia during negotiations they able to to discuss anything and if you look at the sanctions as well if you look at europe european wide the e.u. european countries have something like you know fourteen times more trade with with russia than the united states so for the united states to impose sanctions against russia. it's pretty much. economically light decision for them it doesn't really
4:43 am
have any impact on their economy it has a big impact upon the european economy as a whole when you have countries like germany that have reliant on german on russian imports of gas and do a lot of business with russia who are very concerned about the sanctions and indeed in the new government in italy which is frankly saying that they think the sanctions against russia should be dropped so again you know the world is changing the days when the united states just turn around and say you know we're going to impose sanctions and everyone else needs to follow those days are coming to a close even had a french minister saying you know that the europeans are not facile states the united states there is a different mood and particularly with the trumpet ministration it's becoming more and more difficult for western powers to follow the united states blindly or you'd have the united states pulling out of the paris climate accord you've had them imposing tariffs against the e.u. e.u.
4:44 am
station nations and you've also had the united states pulling out of the iran nuclear deal now in the policy britain always followed as i said since the second war with one exception to be and was always followed the united states but it's becoming increasingly difficult even for the u.k. to follow the u.s. in all these issues because the u.k. is saying hold on we don't actually agree and it may well come to a point again with the sanctions with. the europeans who say look we're not going to go along with these sanctions anymore and that happens i think it's going to be very difficult if not impossible for the u.k. to try to go it alone on sanctions against russia even if they have the support of the united states aren't going to say about the united states and sanctions it's it's interesting that the i don't think it's don't trump personal preference is very much the preference of the military industrial elite. in the united states to use sanctions and this sort of neo conservative policy against russia and you've
4:45 am
got those people around donald trump john bolton mathis to our own actually is the moderate in the in the group who have generally a more hostile attitude to russia would like but. them the state department the pentagon and also by congress you have a much more hostile attitude towards russia so even if trump wants to change the policy right he's finding it difficult to walk then we can talk about that in the second half to our program but we'll have to take a short break right now with but we'll be back topical to a large member of the house of lords discussing the u.k. russia confrontational and the challenges to a post and u.k. has to deal with stay with us.
4:46 am
four men are sitting in a car when the fifth gets shot in the head. all four have different versions of what happened one of them is on the death row there's no way he could have done it there's no possible way because the oldest did not shoot around a corner. with no make this manufacture come sentenced to public wells. when the rooming closest protect themselves. with the final merry go round lifts only the one percent. we can
4:47 am
all middle of the room six. million. elliston is getting international recognition with the help of israel at least in the world of zoos remember wolf it was dismissed it to be like a million pieces and my compass is going up the study hall maybe a bit. john no doubt a tough job but they should be the only palestinians is gets the most help from its jerusalem counterparts i don't think this is of those who in the world under the oak vision know only could do this. and know it is all up at night as to how to this lady of the most of which god i know if you continue in the doesn't seem to do more commitments also don't piss off.
4:48 am
in a world of big partisan law. and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to get the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks.
4:49 am
and whereat the lord peter truscott member of the house of lords discussing the case politics and so post here are welcome back so there are calls from your colleagues like lord waverly laura to kill clooney in the house of lords to and for bill escalation aimed at russia and to engage in more cooperation dialogue with moscow are there ways is being hurried or are they considered as marginals. well i think i think i'm fortunate the moment is still in the minority their voices on being and you know what one encouraging thing for me is that there are more people saying that now than than say a couple of years ago a couple years ago things were. pretty bad in terms of their research phobia and the rhetoric which was used against russia on the house improve noticeably in the house of lords i think. in the house of commons is a bit more of an uphill struggle but nevertheless there are people increasingly
4:50 am
speaking up and saying you know this is all very well but where where is this going to lead us you know where all sanctions going to lead is where is the rhetoric going to lead us you know do we want to end up in a conflict with russia i mean what what's the endgame it doesn't really make sense and at the end of the day you know we should have a dialogue there are many areas where we need to engage quite frankly and then there is also like the culture of discourse and the language that countries used to confront each other why has the diplomatic language used by united kingdom deteriorated so badly i mean the british defense secretary saying russia should shut up that's like a direct quote the foreign secretary comparing the world cup to killer so lympics those are moves that can only result in knowing and outraging the other side is that one's true goal in this game all are there's just random blunders. well you know i mean i agree that that sort of language is totally unacceptable and anyone
4:51 am
who knows anything about russian history would find those remarks particularly. referring to nazi germany and comparing washington also germany is just beyond the pale and i i think really that those ministers should be reined in sort of language is not acceptable what i think it's all a buyer to say it's a political posturing and you have boris johnson the government we the the the the defense secretary posturing really trying to put themselves. at the head of the party in the public limelight and i think really that's what it's about when it comes to the farm sector in the different defense sector it's a political posturing role than anything else. so you're saying while ukase adopting a confrontational stance talking tough and gathering backers against moscow some of its allies like italy adopting a more pragmatic strategy comfort on one issue cooperation and other like in the middle east for instance is the united kingdom shutting itself out of solutions to
4:52 am
global problems by antagonizing the russians to the point of not being able to work with them at all on anything it will on mutually beneficial issues i think it is to a certain extent not something that been saying for quite a while that if you want to have a serious influence on events in places like syria then you need to constructively engage with russia and i think all this sort of rhetoric that we've heard from the defense sector in the foreign sector doesn't really help that we should be working together to solve international issues argue we should be fine where we disagree if we think the things that are happening that we don't approve of then we can we can say about this one thing about being frank. but you can use diplomatic language and be frank and this is another thing about using hysterical rhetoric and not engaging the tool and i think the u.k. at the moment is sort of roll the cloning tools the lesser all the forma so how
4:53 am
does through estimates forging a european league of anti russian measures go with her taking the u.k. out of the e.u. how easy will it be for the u.k. to pressure the other here pay nations to follow london's line after it makes a heart brecht's it which is to course now right. well i. saw threats that will have to say and somebody was saying there won't be breaks at all because it's such a shambles but let's see how about one goes but one least clear is that britain at the end of the day is the medium sized power it punches above its weight at the moment but it also has a certain amount of influence because it's within the e.u. when it leaves the e.u. pretty sure it will the next year it's going to be on its own with the with the e.u. and the weight of the e.u. behind it so it's going to find it more difficult i think to have influence in the world and if if it sort of tries to isolate countries like russia and doesn't
4:54 am
sort of engage with them it will be seeing that its own position is weak and the end of the rusher is a nuclear state member of the permanent five on the un security council and it makes sense to engage with with russia the whole thing about bret's it is that britain has to find a new role in the world and in that case and it has to be engaging with emerging economies has to be engaging with with countries like russia and some countries that quite frankly in the palm os it hasn't really taken very much care about when it comes to domestic relations you know it's funny now but many officials in the current u.k. government have said that the u.k. safer in the you because a moscow secured this russian thread be used to actually justify slowing down or even doing a complete u. turn on the exit. no i don't really see that happening in the e.u. it will be for political reasons it's unlikely but it will be because the
4:55 am
government falls in the u.k. because it doesn't have the votes needed to push through its its version of brecht's it whatever that comes to be and then there is another general election where all the parties promise a second referendum on your membership with that to happen and then that to take place and the british people vote not to come out of the e.u. then we would stay within the e.u. a result of that but i think the likelihood of happening at the moment is not probable but it is still possible and that's the only way that the u.k. would stay within the european union so i london is searching for support inside the e.u. many voters who put the current government in place are distrustful towards a block how well teressa may deal with the contradiction contradiction. well she's finding it difficult at the moment i don't think she can that's the problem because there are just so many different views on how this should be dealt with i mean the
4:56 am
breck that is within the convent won't basically to come free of the new the customs union the single market and for britain to get to go on its own to make these trade deals across the world but i think the problem is that majority of our trade is with the european union and some of these other countries that supposedly we should go off mate you deals with like the united states already showing us that they're going to push us to make very tough deals to accept a lot of things that we don't want to accept currently so i think there is this problem of the heart of the debate the moment the brics that is wanting a future for britain which is very difficult to achieve another pragmatist saying we need to maintain strong links with the e.u. say through a customs union which the brics that is we're going to accept so that is it that is within the conservative party and within the cabinet and then you look at polymer the whole and the there are divisions there so it's something that is very
4:57 am
difficult to achieve for this prime minister who's at the end of the day is also a very weak prime minister. for johnson sat that was bracks at the u.k. will no longer be some carrier on the world stage and will be a global player protagonists yet we see that in times of crisis the u.k. is still rushing for a year support as if they're really a global player and own right right now mr johnson claims that. well i think i think probably britain is a global because it has its position in the united nations security council of the commonwealth you know it is one of the largest economies in the world so i number six so it is a global play i don't think that we should get above all cells i mean bred to be british but we are not a superpower and we should not pretend that we are a superpower we haven't got an empire anymore nor should we have one so i think there's a limit to what britain can achieve on its own what we what we can achieve is is
4:58 am
work together to to build will peace through working with other countries we're not going to do it as little britain on our own so i think if boris johnson is saying that then he's wrong so even inside to rest amaze cabinet there is no single vision on brocks at itself with some ministers differing over the divorce and it's all become quite public how have they failed to keep her cabinet in line and in fact the bracks at negotiations for the united kingdom i think she's filed to keep her in law and because there is this fundamental split in the cabinet that i've described a new majority in the house of commons is so small that she can't really a flute majorette resignations from the foreign secretary there's also talk about david davis the birth it's like very early signing over the last few days so it's not what the happened in her government were to fall apart and she lost a majority in the commons then she found herself in
4:59 am
a very difficult position so she is a weak prime minister and it's very difficult for two people least disparate cabinet ministers and even parliamentarians together singing from the same hymn sheet it's not happening at the moment and it is starting to make bricks that look like a bit of a orange shambles actually thank you so much for this insight and for your socks lord truscott over talking to the peter trust that the number of the youth has has a force discussing their latest. children or relations between last one london there are other challenges facing today that's it for this edition of something called i'll see you next.
5:00 am
in july twenty seventh team hunted set up a freelance journalist working with our team to militant shelling in syria. to honor his sacrifice quality has established a holiday memorial and they will recognize more reporters who often risked their lives for the sake of the truth and through the peace you can submit to your published works in the video or written form until june the twelfth go to a dot on t.v. dot com. this is. the church secret indeed just like priests accused of sexually abusing children can get away with it quite literally i like to call this to do graphic solution so what the bishop needs to do then he finds out that the priest is is a perpetrator is simply moves him to
5:01 am
a different spot were the previous standards not the highest ranks of the catholic church conceal the accused priests from the police and justice system to that end of that's not the best. i can flip out at tuesday's out in. this. case felt. the. events of april twenty eighth one thousand nine hundred sixty the historic town of port arthur tasmania for ever sank the course of history here in australia thirty five foals lost their lives to a gunman's mad massacre was the catalyst for the australian government but after massive sweeping changes in our laws regarding ownership by and selling firearms maybe it's time for the united states to start looking for help.
5:02 am
the transatlantic relationship is had many ups and downs since its inception after the second world war it is said this relationship is whether these moments of tensions and differences due to american leadership enter donald trump can the transatlantic relationship survive the current occupant in the white house. to the kids think compensate oh boy tonight. people no clue about that because. it's not. going to. get the kind of. you know move on which i didn't get showed up to move this because of who i'm listening to who can only be out in show mr certainly must.
5:03 am
is not so much of a thing as a considers it sounds as if he was you rough a million years. bill after all. you don't maybe the american president doesn't mind being isolated today but we also don't mind being six if need be
5:04 am
a kindergarten in massachusetts courses. teaching children. about how to survive. over. the d.n.a. testing platform my heritage raising concerns about the safety of sensitive information. mid-morning on friday here in moscow this is our international law we've been rounding up your latest top news stories let's get into them now the g. seven summit will get underway amid tensions between traditional allies on the streets almost a thousand protesters gathered to oppose the upcoming meeting that has leaders of the world's biggest economies around on the u.s. over its imposition of hefty metals tariffs the french president has even suggested
5:05 am
that america could find itself excluded at the g seven you don't maybe the american president doesn't mind being isolated today but we also don't mind being six if need be it seems like donald trump himself is preparing for a tough gig at the g. seven he has tweeted that he is ready for a fight with his fellow world leaders over the issue of trade later he tweeted that the european union itself is charging the u.s. enormous tariffs. takes a closer look. the g. seven summit seems already destined for dysfunction with a heap of complaints from the u.s. as european allies some are suggesting a name change to keep up with the times we should have been united to england to save them to the group who challenges of the world and instead of the us we would be divided between. them it would be a g six why it's not too hard to see where the fallout between washington and the
5:06 am
rest of the pack is coming from in just two years donald trump has caused serious problems for a major international agreements first by announcing he was ditching the paris climate accord then the iran nuclear agreement the breakthrough deal which took years to negotiate and now he's unleashed a trade war with the e.u. by slapping tariffs on their steel and aluminum. the united states will withdraw from the iran nuclear deal the united states will withdraw from the paris climate of court the united states has been taken advantage of by other countries both friendly and not so friendly for many many decades i'm here to protect and one of the reasons i was elected is on protecting our workers on protecting our companies even the angle of merkel who is known for maintaining her cool during the worst diplomatic spats has had some strong words to share about the
5:07 am
u.s. as recent exits. it is clear that especially with the exit of the u.s. from the climate deal there is dissent within the g seven just as much as with the announcement of tariffs on the mean human steel which we believe are illegal and also the issue of the iranian nuclear deal which the u.s. has withdrawn from. moreover merkel warns of this lack of compromise may lead to the g seven failing to issue a joint statement that would make this year's summit in toronto the first ever and without a communique and chances are high it will with the french president emanuel macron also rumored to be unwilling to sign a joint paper with trump unless he makes some concessions and makes an effort to mend all the multilateral deals he's jumped which most likely will not actually according to his economic advisor this row is no big deal at all. or maybe disagreements. i regard this as. much like
5:08 am
a family quarrel we will do what is necessary to protect the united states its businesses and its workforce don't blame trump. blain the nations that have broken away from those conditions blame the other countries now that's what you want to hear right before a g. seven summit donald quarter r t. we heard from ron paul former u.s. presidential candidate and the founder of the ron paul is this good for peace and prosperity and he believes the hostility at the g. seven summit will yield nothing positive. and maybe they think truffle back down which he might you know a lot of times look at hostel he was to north korea and all of a sudden you know his tune changed right now he might be just maneuvering they're betting on that and he has done that on foreign policy but there are certain things that he does not back down on for instance he did he campaigned on it did not back
5:09 am
down on or on iran and that's why we're moving in this direction so maybe he'll stick to his guns on these on these tariffs. and i think it'll be interesting and and worth watching over this weekend but i just don't think anything real positive is coming out because i don't think they talk about the real problems that cause are our climate of hostility and trading and coming up with this but there are certain things that he does not back down on for instance he did he campaigned on and he did not back down on or on iran and that's why we're moving in this direction so maybe he'll stick to his guns on these on these tariffs but they're they're punishing us american taxpayer the american consumer he's punishing our hives so it really doesn't make any sense when the europeans spoke out after trump took us out of the nuclear agreement with iran either one of the europeans will
5:10 am
stand up to it this is business. the nursery rhyme but a massachusetts kindergarten designed to help children survive a potential shooting has drawn concern from parents on short on social media and some have questioned its appropriateness in a country that's you know at least one shooting a week this year already is that i have defended the rhyme saying quote this is the world we live in a correspondence american report. imagine picking up your five year old from kindergarten and feeling a strange nursery rhyme to the wall a reworked version of twinkle twinkle little star with ominously or. look down not down long as the door shut the lights off say no more go behind the desk in high wait until it's safe inside look down look down it's all done now it's time to have some fun that picture was posted by a massachusetts mom who was taken aback when she learned her daughter had been doing active shooter drills as part of her pre-kindergarten program but she's not
5:11 am
the only one another mom had a similar experience. my girls were playing teacher this past weekend they had math time snack time to read a new book and practice. their active shooter drew earlier this week the cost of a graders in pennsylvania were given bullet proof shields for the backpacks a local sports where company thought it would be a perfect gift for a middle school graduation the company's c.e.o. who happens to have a daughter at that school gifted shields to all of her classmates and an extra twenty five to the school in the time of need. to do the same put it on this way. the students can hold it up to protect their base although perhaps it's worth noting bullet proof shields don't provide protection against assault weapons which have been most commonly used mass shootings but the company one plenty of publicity with such an unconventional graduation gift and there are also those who try to make money off the mash it's less about the video game designed to simulate a school shooting sparked
5:12 am
a major public outrage and this one will come and distributing. it offer to users an opportunity to play is either the killer or a swat officer trying to catch the gunman. parents were outraged and why wouldn't they be this year alone the country has seen at twenty three school shootings where someone was either injured or killed that after just one such incident every single week so far so perhaps it's not so surprising that the nationals are making it to video games and active shooter drills to schools and even kindergarten so me up on our t.v. washington d.c. . ninety two million accounts of been hacked or the genealogy platform my heritage does include d.n.a. tests and the breach has raised concerns about security something the company

prides itself on. my heritage lets users identify their family trees and search for relatives twenty sixteen it launched a d.n.a. service today it has ninety six million users around the world and about one point four million of them have taken the d.n.a. test now when the whole breach was discovered my heritage contacted users and offered them support of the company says that the ninety two million affected accounts only had the e-mail and pos word data compromised it insists that all d.n.a. data are as safe as this is located in separate systems with additional layers of security there has been no evidence that the data in the file was ever used by the
5:14 am
perpetrators we believe the intrusion is limited to user e-mail addresses we have no reason to believe that any other my heritage systems were compromised since the leak the company says it has boosted security yet a koan and internet law expert explains why personal data leaks makes users vulnerable. the reason of course is that the data will get will find a place into insurance companies hands where a decision will be made on the basis of the information contained in the debate there but the wider implications of think religious relation similar to money laundering the distillation of the drug that should be date along the ring legislation endos of these lasers those laws will ensure are there any of these ration they use is they barely perfect individual is actually able to track

back to the source of the data. so with the syrian army having driven out the last terrorists from the outskirts of the capital damascus civilians are now returning to their homes over money there's very little to return to many areas are on recognizable for example one former school. this used to be my school i could never imagine how badly destroyed it would be but still this is a school a place for small kids can they be told why these murals. had gone so this was my class look what i saw has done to nothing is left they destroyed everything there have been no black placards or slogans are covered with

5:20 am
people think just stand out in this business you need to be the first one on top of the story or the person with the loudest voice of the biggest race in truth to stand out of the news business you just need as the right questions and demand the right answer.
5:21 am
it's good to have you with us today the french president's a bid to tackle fake news on the national level has been slammed by m.p.'s in parliament france spoke to several lawmakers who warned that the government backed bill takes the country in a dangerous direction. the problem is the enforcement of this law will put us in the position where the state decides what is truth and what is not i'm extremely concerned because this law is actually gased freedom of speech. are we going to ban and when russia today and sputnik if you want to ban what comes from the outside looking like fake news or what is coming from channels belonging to foreign governments you're not out of the woods yet it will be necessary to watch the b.b.c.
5:22 am
morning and evening you better watch al-jazeera every day and maybe some others will start to monitor france twenty four france twenty four may broadcast information that would be in the interests of the french. the anti fake news law aims at tackling quote manipulation of information that allows parties to complain about news pieces that are deemed to be false or implausible law also gives judges the power to ban publications now another aspect of the lore is monitoring that a foreign broadcasters such as our channel the french government and president himself have long been critical of r.t. branding it as propaganda our reporters have sometimes met resistance when trying to cover official events and fronts shut to russia today and sputnik have not behaved as media outlets and journalists but as organs of influence and false propaganda. this is.
5:23 am
