fifty. a film by the new york times alleges moscow has been waging a campaign against the west since the times of the soviet union. it's. only. if. the leader of the largest terrorist faction in syria claims to have joined forces with so called moderate rebels fighting government soldiers. also parisians take artie's
wine challenge we are blind taste test american and french reds after the. us brands are just as good. but i would say our pool room. the only big much development. and now moments after midday here in moscow on this friday you're watching r t international welcome to the park. the new york times has released a film allegedly revealing a campaign launched back in the times of the u.s.s.r. to tear the west apart. takes a closer look at this supposed history of information the seven commandments news come on click big headlines were not this would be
a masterpiece. in the american. the same techniques the same. great production value music showing in their opinion how russian this information evolved from the cold war. can you give regions was evaluated on how many were due soon. be. quick disclaimer this is an opinion piece so you can bug the new york times about factual inaccuracies which seem to make up the bulk of this series for one the defected spy that gave the interview and confirmed all of this never even worked at the k.g.b. he fled from czechoslovakia which wasn't even part of the u.s.s.r. putin that started funding something called the internet research agency this is
serious said who was the proof how are. hold on i forget opinion piece. you know just like. your opinion the center piece in the k.g.b.'s seven commandments on fake news find a crack in society create a life soup big nobody would believe that it was made up wrap it in the kernel of truth conceal your hand as if the story came from someone else find a useful idiot deny everything and play the long game inevitably of course we get in on rubble mention isn't it nice to have your own t.v. show wow how does it go to us stella journalism mit except you know i have this nagging feeling this doubt the k.g.b. playbook that they claim to have exposed to fits one story even better stu this
probably new york times style commandment one the crack in society donald trump new york times is personal arch enemy jack commandment to the outlandish lie donald trump the president of the united states of america is a russian spy check commandment three the. sprinkle of truth everyone moves donald trump met with the russians he's been to moscow checks out commandment for conceal your hand the anonymous sources unnamed officials political experts they all seem to spend more time talking to the press than doing anything else check commandment five in the useful idiots hope come on this is too easy his opponents will believe anything about trump remember the secret dossier that said he hide who
gets to peel in a bed check commandment six deny everything check we didn't reveal when it was reported c.n.n. or by us he did well you're going to want to know when first we are going to freely not blithely you know it c.n.n. did come on and seven play the long game that's what they've been doing the endless cycle of stories about russian hackers speak news invasions aggression it's been long alright. seven commandments have been followed faith is strong father and fake news heaven hallowed be thy name you can it's come you news be done on earth as on the internet men. everyone knows how the french love wine so when the us president said american wine is just as excellent as the french variety it seemingly touched
a nerve so we decided to put parisians to our very own wine challenge to find out who comes out. as donald trump thrashed out at france's president this week on twitter he also took aim with what he saw as unfair trade practices when it comes to wine tariffs way said the french who are very precious about that wine they don't said both countries made excellent wine but france made it very hard for the u.s. to sell its wines to the country and charges big tariffs so that got us thinking who makes the better wine the us all fronts it's time for battle of the new world wine this is the old and the judges it's the parisians. new rules will soon. be reduced resident little see where.
the whole thing coming. i would say our pool room. to. be seen a bit absolute most of it we. don't live very much. in the week oh oh. in the suit but who will sit with. the verdict is in and it is pretty clear parisians preferred the wine from the us all her well maybe for once the door old house been vindicated as the wind from his
country seems to have trumped that from france so on this occasion from paris we admit defeat but nevertheless we will always weighs a gloss and say so and say show that you can ski r.t. paris. british prime minister to resign has defended her draft deal saying it will put the u.k. on the right course for a definitive divorce from the european union despite a clamor of criticism over her latest plan she again urged members of parliament to unite and get behind it. yes difficult and sometimes uncomfortable decisions have had to be made i understand fully that there is some who are unhappy with those compromises but this deal delivers what people voted for and it is in the national interest and we can only secure it if we unite behind the agreement reached in cabinet yesterday so with the march twenty nine thousand deadline looming or
theresa may has come on during creasing pressure to secure concessions from the e.u. but on thursday the prime minister suffered yet another bruising day in office after her latest divorce plans triggered a wave of resignations and talk of a no confidence vote and she also had to face a three hour morning in parliament. we can choose to leave we know to you we can risk no brakes it is all we can i i i or we can choose to unite and support the best deal that can be negotiated this deal the withdrawal agreements and the outline political declaration represents a huge and damaging failure prime minister comes before us today trying to sell us a deal that is already dead in the water i'm almost tempted to ask if one of the members opposite will put their hands up actually do support i prime minister on
the side of proposing. a lot on my road on a vote for which surge we would leave the customs union. the next two says otherwise my right on friend said that she would maintain the integrity of the united kingdom the whole protocol says otherwise my right honorable friend said that we would be out of the jurisdiction of the york and court of justice also one hundred seventy four says otherwise it's very hard to see her staying perhaps even beyond the weekend because at least forty eight conservative m.p.'s have i understand put in a letter of no confidence in harwich triggers a no confidence debate and then vote and even if she won it as misses that charge did i remind you if a sufficiently large minority votes that they have no confidence in her i would
have thought her goose was cooked it's been a series of cabinet resignations government minister resignations and parliamentary private secretary of resignations even the vice chairman of the conservative party itself has resigned saw it's very hard to. see how someone who has dug in behind a great deal which seems to be almost friendless this is a failure is an orphan and success has a thousand parents. deal look very much like an orphan to me today. a terrorist group in syria is claiming to have united rifle factions to fight government soldiers and province and this comes as the russian foreign ministry accuses so cold moderate rebels of helping extremists violate an internationally mediated buffer zone agreement is a correspondent in the epa trying to areas the province is still an unbelievably
complicated melting pot of anti assad militias from those known as syria's moderate rebels to internationally recognized terrorists like. al shabab probably the mightiest group it's the former nusra front otherwise al qaeda in syria should ring a bell. well a so-called spokesman for the armed wing of that same talk. has given an interview for there are many at the. moment.
the man didn't come up with any kind of full list of who's involved but kept repeating everyone in the free lands that's how he refers to areas not controlled by damascus question if we are to believe the guy have the lines between terrorists and moderates been blurred completely an ad lib. technically there's a cease fire between the government and the rebels and a buffer zone in the province right now it was brokered by turkey and russia and eventually backed by france and germany the buffer zone is meant to be free of any terrorists but if it is the terrorists that are now taking control of a joint command center for everyone how does the cease fire deal make sense anyway at least you're going to zation the programs guest works and fights for doesn't seem to have any intention of laying their guns down. and would you who he said have been. well i when he and then.
also you know. the. title this video also deserves a quick look to the right at the interview or some t.v. stations used to love having be lobdell karim on air people executed it's as simple as that what can i do here and see a blend in the crowd i don't think so am i going to turn my so over to the regime forces absolutely not i know this is something that. i'm. not going to spend some. time and sometimes you will hear someone say that they are part of al qaeda but what is their real affiliation to al qaeda other than some romantic notion to be honest with you he was one of those who were one sending out last messages from besieged aleppo before death from assad's bombs here in besieged
aleppo. we may not be able to see anyone messages as regime forces push closer this might be close to if not be a last communication but his reports have since kept coming and he was even accused of links to al qaida something he has denied c.n.n. actually. try to distance themselves from a bill karim and one of their more recent documentaries while november twenty. know problem getting access to interviewing a high profile figure of tough we all shot aka x nusra aka al-qaeda in syria journalist patrick henningsen believes that by supporting moderate rebel groups western power was on now ultimately helping terrorists now you have effectively a consolidation of all the militants under one terrorist. effectively so if the west is going to intervene diplomatically if the us is going to want to
stop syria from retaking its own territory and its allies who are helping them do that then effectively they're taking the side of of a terrorist. conference officially according to h.t.s. el nusra front in charge al-qaeda affiliate all under their control now so anymore and if they were moderate yesterday they're not moderate today syrian army russia turkey. even the u.s. everyone has to accept the fact that it live as a terrorist occupied. region right now. many more of your story still to come here when aussie international including us are members of a youth party being cold. and public the reactions have been fostered furious that story just.
seems wrong. to shape. the trail. once a. week to look for common ground. this reserve bank enables a couple yes this is at the center of america's descent into financial armageddon can you blame the fed for such things as the infrastructure collapse across america the ecological collapse. california wildfires and hurricanes across the nation. busted pipes in detroit leading our stick poisoning and yes yes you can because
they give money to the bad people. it's good to have you with us today a new children's toy aimed at kids aged five and up that's going on sale in america . with critics saying it brings the political divisions in the country straight into the kinda guy. sees and he looks at whether at this time of heightened sensitivity who's parents and millennial the two weeks of the trick. in these extraordinary top see turvy times one would hope that the lives of our kids could at least for now remain innocent and protected from the political craziness but think again this christmas one conservative website would like your children to
build the wall of the law you know. and not just any wall but one that will keep your country safe as a mob yes a mob of ten thousand migrants march across mexico untoward to the border sounds like an ideal stocking filler or maybe not. as this politician will tell you you'll never too young for politics brown loves playing the kids build the wall then mr trump said you're fired i love them for building blocks on your child's thing perhaps they'll have more fun putting hillary clinton behind bars with this play sets and while we're at it these are not the
only games being criticized as highly inappropriate now we all adore a six hour game of monopoly that usually ends in tears but now players may start crying before they even open the box but a new millennial is addition of the game offers and i watch ring taste of reality the tug line says it all forget real estate you can't afford it anyway forget about passing go because you don't make money you just collect experiences like sleeping on your friend's couch or riveting of a can be stroke mr monopoly also got a make over taking a selfie with a participation medal the company insists that the game is aimed at adults something to chuckle about on christmas morning with uncle john but spoof or not the outrage has been relentless. so it turns out we could have called classic monopoly boom a monopoly all along has
a bunch of money you have no debt everything is affordable and you can go straight from starting out in life to a rich british state mogul with no formal education you are aware that student debt and the rising cost of rent is crippling the economy talking about it a yogic but then when we need to judge what's acceptable for kids to play with some point out that today is that old crow playing with unrealistic female role models like barbie and racist not to mention sexist stereotypes like super mario and let's not even get started on fairytales. a group of members of a youth party have sparked outrage in berlin after being caught singing a nazi era song and shouting homophobic slurs at the incident allegedly took place in a bar earlier this month on the anniversary of the infamous nine hundred thirty eight nazi pogrom against the jews.
you. know the controversial of best of old song is originally from one nine hundred thirty two and was frequently sung by nazi soldiers during invasion including that of france and of the netherlands it remained in fact part of germany's official military song book until just last year around fifteen a youth party members were caught singing the best of old drawing condemnation from politicians. to sing popular a very marked song on the eightieth anniversary of the november programs is stunning i'm ashamed of the j. ews brunches to sing a song that was sung during the invasion of belgium luxembourg and france is not acceptable this is not my j u the local chapter of the c.d.u. is youth wing party has issued an apology for the disturbances caused by its members at the bar although it dismissed any wrongdoing describing the nazi era
tune as a german folk and hiking song and we spoke to a member of germany's left party who says the incident only adds more shame to one of the country's darkest chapters. germany i'm disgusted by the way here. discredits everything that people did after the war our brave that english nazi soldiers marching age of parlor the see you can rear hatch rattlers that cell is always bad more right wing and right wing extremists. but it was always balanced by the liberal liberal part of the way and if you look at the sea view in general and it's not an isolated incident at all it's lowly wholly for nothing nazi ideology major it is. a minute of silence to commemorate the people that were beheaded by the nazis today are changing.
those c.d.u. now gross well. show us that all the education a little education of the last years and how did they. bring us. a split between the ukrainian and russian orthodox churches could soon become official and my colleague neil harvey discussed the situation with artie's daniel hawkins. well religious scandals around churches in ukraine to many might seem irrelevant a historic theological debate but actually carries a lot more meaning to orthodox believers need to look at the basics first the eastern orthodox church is made up of fifteen different churches each of which one has autonomy in religious language that is called autocephaly being the church has its own self governance independence and jurisdiction now the russian orthodox church for centuries has had rule over the key of orthodox church have been
political and religious factions in the country which a very long time pushed for a independent ukraine unorthodox to be established indeed the president of ukraine petro poroshenko has been a supporter of this he's implied that the creation of this church is just as important to ukraine's independence and rebirth as joining the e.u. or nato autocephaly is the most important event from the same serious as our aspiration to join the u.n. nato the association agreement a visa free regime with the e.u. withdrawal from the c.i.s. rejection of the deceptive treaty and friendship with russia etc all this is the basis of our all new way of development development of ukraine so if this is going to happen it's going to come easily it's quite a complicated situation in ukraine is that yes there's more than one orthodox church in ukraine apart from the main one recognized officially as part of the moscow patriarchate there are also two other churches now they broke away in the early ninety's when ukraine got its independence from the u.s.s.r.
this is the key of patriarchates and the ukrainian autocephalous church these claim independence but they have never been recognized officially as official corrugations that's until very recently when the patriarch of constantinople made moves to give them that autonomy that independence as well this is very much angered the moscow patriarch the russian orthodox church doesn't accept these decisions and will not follow them schism is schism and it's lee. it is other leaders of the schism and the church that accepted the schism excluded itself from the economical field it decision has been made to rupture food communion with the constantinople patriarchate we cannot be in communication with this church which is in schism what about the everyday church goers were they in any way be affected or i think it's going to cause a lot of confusion and division i mean this is seen as a wider context as part of that conflict between russia and ukraine east and west those debates over independence and cultural heritage in the bigger picture here
tensions have been rising since about twenty forty in there have been dozens of attacks since then by ukrainian nationalists on orthodox churches aligned with moscow they view them as enemies of ukraine as effectively tools of the kremlin in terms of church property there may be conflicts as well the moscow aligned church owns around twelve thousand parishes in ukraine those two other ukrainian churches which may soon unite control about half that number so in terms of ownership of churches in terms of income revenue in terms of where followers are going to go and practice their faith this is an issue that's not going to go away and is likely to certainly cause some more confusion division in a country already deeply divided. the program for this hour here on r.t. international there are many more of your friday worldwide headlines to continue at the top of the hour hope you can join us.
