7:03 pm
well as you can see this for an isolation didn't quite work and this might be one of the reasons why the u.s. president. is rather gloomy you could read it off his face all throughout his stay in argentina he didn't join the family photos. he pulled off the translator as he was being welcomed by the argentinean leader and he's just frowning all the time here in. the russian side have said that they actually regret that they cannot have direct contact with the u.s. peter however they're not making a big deal out of it and vladimir putin the house plenty of other things to do here the argentine capital for instance he's always. with the leaders of.

7:07 pm
anti russia full of russia phobia i believe very fundamentally that when they had their private time with him using the ukrainian situation as an excuse this was a good optics and image thing for them to cancel this meeting chancellor merkel the austrians the italians there are many within the european community that may make a stance one way or another on the ukrainian situation but still desire to have trade dialogue and a deescalation of unnecessary tensions with the russian federation and you'll see them meet and have a dialogue just like chancellor merkel is doing and that is much better path forward then shunning and not having conversations and letting unnecessary tensions escalate. ukrainian government has banned a russian males between the ages of sixteen and sixty from. entering the country
7:08 pm
this follows a standoff over the seizure of three ukrainian ships in a carriage straight our correspondent reports now from crimea well we've seen similar bans put in place over the last several years repeatedly russian men entry into ukraine but this is the first time that they've officially confirmed that russian men age sixteen to sixty new longer welcome or no longer allowed entry into ukraine the president has talked about this he has said that one of the justifications is to prevent russia from forming private armies inside ukraine we must remember of course that president poroshenko over the last four years has full cost repeated russian invasions of the ukraine which have. to materialize but the russian the russians have also reacted the russian foreign ministry they've said that this is merely a political ploy a political play in order to shore up the part. just four months to go until
7:09 pm
elections and martial law being put in place is an attempt by him to radicalize the solidify the base and to guarantee himself more votes russia meanwhile that said that it is not planning on responding in kind that it isn't going to put in place any sort of restriction on ukrainian coming into russia for now but we've seen other restrictions put in place by the government in kiev we've seen for example foreigners banned from moving into from journeying into crimea from the ukrainian side this includes journalists and this is drastically called complicated job because now foreign correspondents seeking to cover events in crimea even if they do manage to get into crimea they you know they might be punished by the ukrainians but we've seen a c.n.n. crew for example now in marry you pool which is a ukrainian city in the south of ukraine they've been. opinions from people in
7:10 pm
the interview for example one woman among others who says that she has relatives in russia relatives that you know it's going to be harder to contact because because of this new ban there are millions of russians and ukrainians on both sides of the border that have relatives on the other side and she identified herself as one of those if we had a normal president she says women work like this in this kind of job you know that she had good president's. name but brought the old smile among the. strange while the c.n.n. correspondent may be surprised that there are ukrainians who want friendly relations with russia the situation politically socially economically in ukraine isn't black and white there are many many people who share similar opinions who want to reconsolidate want friendly relations and it's rare that we hear their opinions voiced in the mainstream media and western press nevertheless there are
7:11 pm
many many ukrainians who share similar opinions and who want this to when. the vast protests against soaring fuel prices have spread of from france to belgium drivers took to the streets of brussels in solidarity with a french movement a correspondent peter oliver has the latest from paris where the government has held a meeting with activists in a bid to quell. why well this meeting was supposed to try and get out problems and stop a repeat of the violent scenes we saw today when demonstrators come out on to the shelves behind me here in paris this coming saturday. well it didn't go to plan at all really out of the six leadership members of the yellow vests only two of them showed up to one of them stayed for less than two minutes before storming out having this to say. on the you. i already spoke about this before coming here
7:12 pm
and then again expressed this to the prime minister i wanted this meeting to be fully recorded on camera and broadcast live already so that the french people could watch it because i don't deserve to be here more than anyone but i was denied this i made a commitment to my family that i would leave meetings wasn't going to be recorded as. this has caused some people to question what the french prime minister was doing organizing this meeting in the first place if it wasn't going to be filmed the demonstrators had made it very clear that that was a crucial part of what they were demanding when it came to these talks one of the representatives so did remain in the meeting with the french prime minister we don't know what came out of what we do know though is that demonstrations are still planned for saturday on the seans elisei just behind me here as they turn to violence some horrible scenes from last saturday and what we have seen is violent scenes in a similar vein on friday in belgium. you
7:13 pm
saw small crowds but certainly a very determined crowd they were able to cause an awful lot of damage in a very short period of time only around five hundred people in that group in brussels but they were chanting their solidarity with those protesters wanting to see a stop on fuel price rises here in france also they were protesting against what they see is a uncontrollable rise in the cost of living and they also were chanting that devote the french and the belgian government must step down. rocks were thrown at the place in that incident the police responded with tear gas found with with baton charges we understand that dozens detained during that demonstration in belgium and really we are expecting more of the same here is for saturday we are expecting a much larger police presence that we saw today and they'll be looking to try and well stop a repeat. the violence. repeating themselves in the french capital french
7:14 pm
government says fuel taxes need to remain close to current levels to pay for public services the tax is also part of broad efforts to discourage car use and cut carbon emissions we heard from brussels based journalist luke of a who says the high prices are making life difficult for people in france and belgium. this demonstration editing being canceled because the organizers couldn't organize the security they said to the police so they had originally cancelled it and it's only through social media then a few hundred people were there at ten o'clock to demonstrate of these yellow vests like in france of course it's mainly in the french speaking part of the country of belgium that they demonstrate imitating the french and in a sense but with the same ideas that taxation has come to. papal levels people very peaceful everywhere with a yellow first to say that they were fed up with the taxes especially the tax on
7:15 pm
diesel the price of the few is sixty percent taxes fifty five to sixty percent depending on the country it's much too high and when you have a single mother with kids in the country that who needs her car to go to work and earns one thousand one hundred maybe met and has to pay three hundred three hundred fifty four for petrol or gas as you said american they can't do it anymore they're dying simply and it's the silent majority that pays its taxes normally well there hasn't been a new twist in the trunk brush of collusion allegations that story much more after a short break you are watching an international. in fact a recent poll of gallup poll shows fifty seven percent of americans want to more cooperative relationship with russia so there's a disconnect that
7:16 pm
a smart politician democrat would understand needs to be seen because there's not a lot of hunger or appetite for this kind of any russian politics is being fanned by a media political establishment. the bed the people who run the economy who price money the commodity that runs economy they say it's more art than science it means are just making it up as they go along it means that there is no principles that they are guided by they consider themselves artists because of the selves in precious they consider themselves completely subjective in their view of the world that they can simply raise rates and lower rates based on a when there's nothing guiding them in economic reality there's no school of economics there's no science behind it it's pure whimsy.
7:17 pm
or welcome back this is our senior international crimes that president trumps a former campaign chairman met several times with wiki leaks founder julian assange has taken a new twist a former cia officer is questioning the story saying it might have been planted by russia more on that now with artie's daniel hawkins. it's another link in the chain of the trump russia collusion probe the guardian article exposing alleged multiple meetings between the former chairman of from his presidential campaign and wiki leaks founder julian assange and that's really it's caused quite a stir in the u.s. media story is shaking washington that is a bombshell lana foreigners are held a secret meeting around the same time that manna for join the trunk campaign a direct connection between the campaign and wiki leaks they actually published e-mails that were hacked by the russians now stolen by russian spies but doubt soon
7:18 pm
began to emerge about the article's content and sources but not to warry politico has the answer even if the guardian story is false it's all russia's fault you know i'm being serious rather than being the bombshell smoking gun that directly connects the trump campaign to wiki leaks perhaps the report is something else entirely a distant from asian campaign is it possible someone planted the story as a means to discredit the journalists that article was written by next year yeah agent under a pen name to prove a point the former officer draws our attention to those who dare question this bombshell rush's disinflation network has jumped into the ring to promote skepticism of the story sputnik one of russia's propaganda networks called the story into question and bolster the skepticism by quoting tweets from other gone and glenn greenwald wiki leaks itself r t also a crime and mouthpiece but nec and wiki leaks do you see
7:19 pm
a pattern here it's clear why there's some skepticism the story raises more questions than answers both x. and man of four strongly deny the meeting even threatening legal action ok perhaps they're both simply covering for each other you could say but assad is a man under close surveillance with police literally on his doorstep a few days pass yet no other source can confirm or show substantial evidence of manifolds alleged visit to the ecuadorian embassy or as a minister apparently the washington times says paul manifolds passports show he didn't even visit london in those years the guardian claim and r.t. are the only ones asking for evidence. who are the sources if you can say then doubt anonymous source and is dangerous at best striking catalogue of reflexive credulous acceptance of a story that looked shaky from the start and looks more so by the day maybe they've all been duped by russia but what does politico think this fake news operation by
7:20 pm
russian intelligence actually proves someone is novice and eager to lay the groundwork for yelling fake news out what other stories are about to drop so either what the guardian says is true and there is collusion or it's a fake story planted by the russians which also proves collusion win win situation one thing seems clear someone is feeling the heat. the story's almost the power to annex cia agent using a pen name says that if the guardian piece on a solid metaphor is false the russians must be behind it anyway you really can't make this up. ukraine's security service has a raided the residence of a russian orthodox priest accusing him of inciting hatred metropolitan pablo oversees the oldest monastery in kiev this comes after the crimean orthodox church was granted independence from the russian church by the patriarchate of constantinople however the plan has been criticized by religious heads in ukraine
7:21 pm
for not specifying a date for the rule changes to come into effect. state politicians of the highest level who constantly promise cuts and all the suffering simply deceive us there is a full understanding of the fact that constantinople leads us on with various promises since most likely it's statements about the ukrainian orthodox church are motivated by something more than just spiritual goals a chairman for the russian orthodox church has also reacted saying it is the third time constantinople has talked about granting autonomous powers for national churches but there is still no conclusion in sight he also stressed the separation is something orthodox believers do not actually want october constantinople overturn a centuries old act of a union to sever ties between kiev and moscow then both the russian and ukrainian churches responded in turn to cut away from constantinople r.t. got the thoughts of
7:22 pm
a professor of church history. you create him go and is really you know like trying to force i know nicole bishop some canonical church to participation in various quote unquote consul of unification so paul farhi of this procedure for a series of structures here was to threaten with confiscation of churches and monasteries and they started to pull discipline into life with which i. always chose one of the most respected small mysteries in the ukraine we could go on now is the day break their agreement. will not be able to use the premises anymore it's what the second step is trying to give a lot of the caves in kiev which is like the holiest place or more to ukrainian and russian belorussian and also and all. raids had called her. apartment the residence or for metropolitan
7:23 pm
paul who is the obvious. lawyer on the case in q. is a circumstance of this strategy of intimidation and violence. well after a tragic wave of mass shootings in the us oakland university in michigan has come up with a controversial way of keeping people safe staff and students are being trained to fight potential shooters using whichever everyday objects they can get their hands on. they have enough mass to cause injury small enough to be thrown.
7:24 pm
in a matter of seconds. no way you can lock a door with this it can't get shot out you can't get around it. it's something that we should think about america about putting guns in the hands of law abiding citizens whether they actually be talented children or how to train a three year old cannot defend itself from a assault rifle by throwing

7:27 pm
prefer it be with the death penalty just because i think that's the fair thing the right thing research shows that for every nine executions one convict is found innocent the idea that we were executing innocent p. . it was terrifying lose just no really hasn't been that we were even many of the families want the death penalty to be abolished the reason we have to keep the death penalty here is because that's what murder victims' families what. it's going to give them justice and we come in saying. not quite enough we've been through this this isn't the way. this finding this out a need. but i saw the powder but i again gouging down which i live. as this type of how do you. think i'm going to employ is going to go at the bridge
7:28 pm
. from which i got the other car the most almost the whole cd i mean look if you get the thumb print you know has a funny but it was you know i love nearly. four hundred days and right on the bank all of the work on the base walker chemical lies and as our business is going through that he would develop a new treatment there internationally mockers know that these industries out of polluting you had this simply ignored your money that time and mother none of even else and the mother of them like means we lost the end of this.
