a faulty sensor caused the failed rocket launch last month in kazakhstan in which the two man crew made america kill escape. and emotions run high in the white house over the world anti-doping agency's decision to reinstate russia as sports officials cried and called for transparency claiming water has damaged clean sports. it's ten o'clock here in moscow and you're watching all t. international life my studio with me in a day or two to welcome to the program a small seaside town of just five thousand people in the u.k. has found itself in the limelight for all the wrong reasons pictured as a rundown suburbia by the us republicans an image of twice named britain's most deprived area has become headline news before the mid-term elections in america are
3:02 pm
u.k. correspondent explains why. what links this essex seaside town to the upcoming us elections an insensitive political one hundred that's what miracles here in chile week sans in essex have been left fuming ofter a pro trump republican candidate for the senate for the state of illinois used a photograph of j. wick sands on his social media feed as an anti advertisement so the caption next to the photograph read only you can stop this from becoming a reality but the problem is the picture wasn't quite reality the image of jay weeks sans that he used was taken several years ago and since then the local authorities have made quite a few improvements to the local area so the miracles they're all rather cross country to try to pocket america are and then you come to a cover of walking and you see the different plane. when it is in america we don't
3:03 pm
need him or for there right now is iraq and everything america are here is just what sorry we can refuse it winds come in use an old fart. somewhere and say look your town is going to look like this is the bad news. a match normally should be used are going to put a good picture we got a bit of hostility with the camera down there is it kind of is do you guys feel a bit kind of burned by the negative press attention that you guys of ours yes because of the t.v. show that happened way before yeah nobody want to come study with it so you become a speech in people's faces just you know we would you know people don't like it they don't like it or the offending advert has now been removed and dr nick stella's spokesperson has issued an apology or cough an apology our intent was never to smear to town and to photo not known to us as jay wick sands in essex we never used a name for us it was an example of
3:04 pm
a town overburdened by poor governance which is exactly what we in our district are seeking to provide at every level back in two thousand and ten and two thousand and fifteen the government named the area as the most deprived in england in fact i was here to report on it at the time the time was thought up as a holiday resort for city dwellers back in the one nine hundred twenty s. these are all meant to be summer houses but because rents were so cheap people started living here all year round some parts of the town like tarmac roads street lighting or even pavements bloss who shops that were here have been boarded up unemployment is rife in the town in fact sixty two percent of the people that live head to pend on welfare payments. on the town isn't exactly a luxury seaside resort it is still a deprived area and even the local authorities have been keen to stress that they
3:05 pm
have invested in new roads and new drainage systems it could use more money there is some hesitation when you talk to the locals as well they don't want to talk to the cameras they've been burned before by. bad press and i keen to turn the image of the town around some concede that they care definitely use more investment but it's not up to politicians in america to judge their hometown one interesting suggestion came from the director of a documentary about j. which she said that dr nick stella should come over here and she can churn around the town and so he can see for himself all the improvements that have been made i get the sense that the locals care would have won which are things to say to him. precious space agency says a sense of damage during assembly was responsible for an aborted soyuz rocket launch three weeks ago the two man crew was forced to evacuate and both the
3:06 pm
american and russian on board both miraculously escaped unscathed the agency released a video from an all board camera which shows the rocket failure just two minutes into the flight. the crew with supposed to fly to the international space station. has more on the aborted space flight. it was an absolutely shocking new spec than the first failure of this kind in the last thirty five years shortly after the incident a special high rent in commission was formed to investigate what went wrong with the sea use launch last month and today we're heard their verdict a sensor that is supposed to detect there in a support ration of the rocket stages
3:07 pm
a metal detail that big is to blame for the incident pictures were also released today showing that this detail was visibly deformed and it may sound like a technical failure but the commission concluded that the different mation happened at the time when the rocket was assembled and as we know it is done always manually so as one of the members of the commission told me answering my question this tragedy has a name and a last name us law enforcement agencies are investigating the matter i would prefer not to discuss that here we are investigating the technical aspect of the mouth function but of course someone is always responsible for the different mission of the center caused the peroration issues and eventually the rockets stagers bumped into each other and it's crippled the rocket and this is when they merge into system reacted automatically by suppurating the crew capsule this is
3:08 pm
a shuttle to be doing is showing what exactly happened. think. about. it.
3:09 pm
a russian cosmonaut and an american astronaut the crew members of that flight came back safely to earth in that capsule and they are in good condition and their health was not affected and as we hear from russia's space agency was also missed their flight is shaping for next spring so approximately next march they will fly to the international space station but even before that there will be another manned flight from baikonur that is shed yule for december third. three teenage boys have been killed in an israeli air raid on the border between israel and the gaza strip after another week of clashes that funerals of the victims were held on cheese day with relatives gathering in gaza city families of the three teen victims claim they were only in the area to set nets for catching birds responding to these reports the israeli army and the boy's behavior with suspicious troops spotted
3:10 pm
a squad of three suspects approaching the border under the cover of darkness in a crouched and suspicious manner the three operates in a way that was identical to previous incidents in which terror operatives had placed explosive devices in the same location. we got reaction from both sides on this latest incident in gaza take three young boys who unfortunately were killed but they were clearly of pro ching in open fire zone that had been established by hamas six months ago families and close associates of those victims the children victims of two media outlets that there were children were doing a routine work over a teen activity simply putting traps for bait for bears so if i was a parent i wouldn't let my child anywhere near that border fence and the only reason that they were near that hostile border fence is to either cut the fence or plant explosives or kill or kidnap israelis it's the only reason there is no other logical reason from the be there the israel is always acclaimed as to targets he
3:11 pm
really ns well in fact many cv indians have been victims for israeli army actions is throughout the region the i.d.f. the israel defense force is the only army in the middle east and i would argue one of the only our music the only army in the world that has multiple layers of confirmation before it issues open fire orders on anybody the latest incident in which a three policy that children were killed in the. was part of the of this repeated this story by the israeli army terms of the buffer zone israel has been electing the buffalos on this comes actually against the well of the people who lead in this these areas especially the farming community. for the past seven months palestinians have been holding weekly demonstrations as a part of the so-called great march of return along the israeli border more than two hundred palestinians have died during the protests with thousands injured
3:12 pm
here's a reminder of how it's been unfolding. and utopian chiefs and athletes have been meeting at the white house in a very clear and focal stand against the world watchdogs decision to reinstate
3:13 pm
russia and yet this year a number of athletes get teary pleas for the sport to be cleaned up while accusing russian competitors of stealing their medals and i see right picks up the story not every day you would see tears shed inside the white house but that was the case with the emergency summit of several national anti-doping agencies which actually looked like a on the ground meeting of rogue revolutionaries in this case the u.s. anti-doping agency the u.k. and i don't mean agency a bunch of very famous athletes convene at the white house to discuss waters recent decision to reinstate the russian anti-doping agency in its rights and to talk about the future of clean sport interestedly enough but the world anti-doping agency claims it was not even invited to that meeting if water president athletes or others that were. who would have of the decision had been invited they would have been able to bring perspective to the debate to explain why the decision to reinstate rosado was the right one for a clean sport the head of usada travis tygart denounced those accusations said that
3:14 pm
in fact the vice president of water was there but the overall language he was at that summit can give you a very clear idea of how toxic and political the fight against doping has become why does leadership along with the i.o.c. are increasingly isolated with athletes and public opinion they need to wake up and smell the coffee step out from their ivory tower because athletes are demanding change and change is coming. the president of water sir craig reedie was having a symposium all with someone in london and he was asked the question whether there was any rift among the anti-doping watchdogs worldwide and he gave a very indefinite answer to that one government voted against the recommendation one. and one of steamed. the people we hear from most often on a pretty short length of group not of government the pretty selective group of national and you drop an organisation and there's usually they're going to meet you
3:15 pm
. now what does this select group have any leverage on the situation of course you would expect the head of the u.s. anti-doping agency to use trump's method some may say it's blackmail in this situation that's exactly what he did speaking about the budget u.s. contributes the biggest amount of money to what is annual budget more than two million dollars the u.k. about nine hundred thousand dollars and travis tygart hinted that this budget may be pulled so it's about three million dollars of thirty four annual money that water has in its possession now you may ask yourself what's the bone of contention here obviously the world anti-doping agency has decision to reinstate. in its full rights as part of the world anti-doping family on september twentieth the headlines were vicious and there still are vicious some media are in total frenzy about that decision but the president of water so craig reedie the recipient of biggest criticism following that decision spoke about that about his decision in london today. how can you describe. do you find right public pleas to
3:16 pm
the russian authorities i copied not later to all of my committee sheen given shot just two conditions we will declare a result of compliant and then we get a letter from russia. and the executive committee. commented on it and a member of fifteenth water will gather for a big executive meeting in and they are there by johnny capital of baku and that's where we're expecting the fists will be flying high with sports and politics coming very close down the finish line. r.t. reporting from moscow. earlier we spoke to ellis cashmore former sports and media lecturer who says doping is a worldwide problem but russia's being made the fall guy as politics begins to creep in. well russia is the fall guy here. anybody who knows anything about doping in sport knows that doping goes on in every country in the
3:17 pm
world whether our professional sports russia has been a convenient scapegoat and all the evils of the book of doping have been conducted over the past few years americans who have lost out on medals over the years on are complaining about this that and the other without naming any specific culprits but what they're saying is that the water as being too soft on russia basically. is an organization that was seen to be working in there not specifically their interests but in the world of sports interests but now seems to be part of this intersection of politics and sport in other words what they have tried to retain a position of independence from all this but whether they like you or not they have been dragged into a political route i've been a big critic of why they're on r.t. of the past couple of years so let's get that out of the way first of all but i'm
3:18 pm
now being a little bit more sympathetic than i usually am because it seems to me that what is damned if it does damned if it doesn't. a few months ago before it agreed to reinstate resigned of the russian anti doping agency it was really getting it in the neck because people were saying what hang on you know you have this report that you basing all your job or you were decisions and justifications that there was this nation's are that is the mclaren report and it isn't transparently clear what evidence mclaren has gathered over the past several years so i thought i was amongst the critics who were attacking wide it for its lack of transparency now why there has done what i consider the. right thing readmitted russia back into world sport. and americans are starting to grow old that it's too soft particularly
3:19 pm
soft on russia. a series of crimes in the u.s. linked by many that to right wing politics are becoming the baseline topic in news coverage stateside and with just days to go until america's polarized public with their choice in the midterm elections the rhetoric is getting fiery one c.n.n. host is clear as to who he thinks poses the real terror threat but you have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men most of them radicalized to the right. lemmons comments come off the three recent hate crimes involving white suspects last saturday eleven jewish were supposed to have massacred at a synagogue in pittsburgh and the same week two black people were killed in a shooting at a supermarket in kentucky and fifteen mail bombs were sent to high profile opponents of the u.s. president we had contrast from inside the u.s. from genesis to him in faroe and political activist and think about just right. i
3:20 pm
think that mr levin was actually stating facts there are twice as many terrorist incidents from white right wing terrorist in those people who submit to al islam what they're saying right now is saying that the majority of the country are terrorists i'm pretty sure that if white men were the real problem in america we'd have a higher incident a higher rate of incidents with these types of terror attacks radicalized white people who are sending pipe bombs to people of the opposing party who just killed eleven jewish people who just killed two black people in kentucky because they couldn't get into a black church look at the result things deaths and look at the perpetrators d.n.a. and is doing everything they can to try to cast a negative light against anything trump in obviously the majority of the voting bloc in america is working class white men believe incidents that are being painted
3:21 pm
are happy and are being painted as down from what is really not true people like dog lemon are going to continue to perpetuate these false narratives in the hopes that maybe it can just drop people from what's actually going on in america which is a great thing right now economically numbers for people across all demographics including whites latinos and blacks in particular where black unemployment is a historic low bombs that were just sent did not kill anyone but they were still acts of terrorism and you can't deny that the person who was caught by the enemy i was a donald trump supporter. is a down note from supporters and if we're being honest really but here's a reginald no that's all there is there is there is information it doesn't matter because i don't know that i took your work right he's a god only if we can't read it it's made it sound if you stop a bunch of different ways you can sit there in journalism and state that he specifically and donald trump supporter he was inspired to do that by donald trump we have to be honest about post reconstruction white terrorism against black people
3:22 pm
we're not being honest about that we're not going to get to the root of the problem white supremacy found in the united states of america white supremacy exists in the united states of america and white supremacy is rising across the world called don lemon said this is just a for the reasons a continuance of the division that was created in america under the ministration of barack obama. and israeli clothing brands. campaign fishing model. off under that tagline basically and also point out they refers to one of israel's biggest foes the video has been viewed thousands of times across social media and on the page but it's triggered an angry reaction which has led to the being removed.
3:23 pm
out of our. freedom is basic first of all you dumb if you think this is considered freedom this is just disrespectful in so many levels this campaign is supposedly designed to call out racism and bigotry and support freedom funny because this is the exact opposite of supporting freedom can't be bothered by cheap islam for the cab like this by who does let them have their freedom and we'll have ours when i saw that ad i was angry how could that be ok me today's world it wasn't just me who was a greedy pretty much everyone. so i got angry as one of women's rights advocate we spoke to says that the advertisement is out of sync with the families of those who see it my concern is that the advertisement is not only not in touch with the consumer that it's advertising to you it doesn't seem to have enough respect or were guard for their way of life people are allowed to choose how they want to live
3:24 pm
in the regions are associations of people who have the same belief system in which they want to live within this belief system and unfortunately when you do something like take off the burka or you know when you say that you know freedom is basic and that this type of covering does not represent freedom it is considered in my opinion to be you know out of touch with the view of that religion is not the only odd stirring controversy in israel a local election candidate in the city of romney released this campaign last month it depicts a woman wearing an exam a veil along with a caption suggesting it could be anyone's daughter if they married a muslim partner the post has drawn a condemnation from the city's our population into religious marches are largely discouraged in israel and resurface and again says that the clothing choices of women are best left to women. this type of covering does not
3:25 pm
represent freedom who are you to decide whether these women are free or not if they're comparable in this way of life in this religion then that's a decision that they're allowed to make if you participate in you say i personally no longer want to wear his job that's your personal choice but to say that it's it's not freedom for those women. i think it can very much seemed to come across as not understanding and not respectful of that particular religion and culture and what we've got to do is provide the resources so that if women decide that they want to live in a different country to live a different lifestyle that those resources are there for now in the meantime don't forget you can have a look at all our stories on our website that's all true dot com i'll be back at the top of the hour with more but first here on altie international it's worlds apart once.
3:26 pm
given the way in which the last ten recent acts were programmed structured using european logistics you can see there's a certain desire to change the way of life change to society introduce. oh look beautiful that's what i don't want to.
3:27 pm
be global economy's been dead since two thousand and eight and through the transfusion of a lot of money it's been animated and kept alive it looks like something was going on there but now those transfusions of cash are ending because interest rates are going to start ticking up so now that rotten stinking corpse of the global economy is going to start smelling really bad people are going to start bailing out of stocks technology stocks housing stocks. semiconductor stocks yeah right they're just like sell sell sell sell sell sell sell and then of course you could have market down twenty thirty forty fifty sixty percent. while give easy vow from this us.
3:28 pm
or union said yes. it's rational and. desirable of the the media. zuma. the talk of impending war around the world is on the increase the great power speak openly on the need to prepare for
3:29 pm
a conflict what does this tell us if anything it appears to be a sign the global order they came into being up in the second world war and the cold war has come to an end what is replacing it. hello and welcome to worlds apart relationship experts always recommend that trouble couples keep talking to one another in a way that's direct enough to expose mutual grievances but also found that if enough not to make things worse that's seems like valid advice on the eve of the second meeting between the logic. but is that enough to pull the current russia
3:30 pm
relationship out of a tailspin well to discuss that i'm now joined by. director of the in situ it often . national studies at the moscow state institute of international relations mr self it's good to see you thank you very much for coming over thank you for having me now you use a lot of psychoanalytic terms in your articles for example the fundamental attribution error which according to you afflicts both russia and the united states and their analysis of each other's actions if we take these political psychoanalysis a bit further how would you diagnose the current state of mind on both sides of the atlantic who have a very deep sympathy with perception of what's going on and like americans they don't probably the strategic consequence of the current sanctions regime they have the see what's going on through the election peter there's a malevolent russian interview them saying the destroying american power they've focused on that end there.
