other than. subscribing to rub people some good luck he comes in for just twelve euros fifty per month. a b.b.c. reporter says her editors are out for blood as she asked another journalist in france to establish any links between the kremlin and the yellow fest movement. in the united states to start picking fights with each other that was going to have

all sorts of unintended consequences on killing if you we worried about the. planet there is caught in the crossfire of washington and beijing is ongoing trade war as prime minister justin trudeau expresses concern over business woman at the request of the us. rap artist from forming lie is an ineffective way to counter the potentially bad influence of hip hop lyrics so says russia's president reacting to the spate of concert by authorities across the country. but also to luxury fashion giant prada receive keys to braces i'm after selling figurines with piglet speed quickly a cheap for the back. how can such a big brand nowadays when divesting such a big issue get it completely wrong when you let people determine what. is working for censorship for the state of creativity.
7:02 am
or the welcome you're watching at international where it's just gone three pm here in moscow our top story the hunt for russian medalist continues it seems because the messages sent by b.b.c. correspondent who is looking possible connections between moscow and the yellow vests movement in france have angered russia's foreign ministry and one of the correspondents messages she said her editors were quote out for blood. well maybe some russian business is capitalizing greatly on the protests maybe the protesters eating cutlass or mass may be the far right to ring leaders there i'm looking for angles yes the editors demand some blood. but messages there were published by russia's ria novosti news agency it comes just a week after a number of media outlets allege that russian bought or automated accounts were fueling rage over the protests the french authorities have launched an
7:03 am
investigation into this on the b.b.c. has told r.t. it was reasonable for its news team to look into a potential connection in light of the french government own statement on this possibility because the french foreign ministry had spoken publicly about media reports of a possible russian influence in the protests it was perfectly reasonable for a correspondent to raise the subject however in the end her reports made no mention of a possible connection with russia at all we stand by our impartial independent journalism but we also asked me to see russia if they are still looking for connections between moscow and the french protests and whether the correspondent was under pressure to push that particular angle but they haven't commented so far while the russian foreign ministry has criticised the b.b.c. using it acting in a cynical manner the cynicism of journalists is amazing we're talking about a company that has propagated all its life and bias and independent approach and its professionalism as the pitted me of the media world i have
7:04 am
a question for this very british regulators of the media space and the public how do they evaluate this kind of compilation of facts that employees of their television and radio companies are doing when we went to the streets of paris to ask people if they thought russians are somehow interfering. everything is possible nowadays. you know of course on the. man they say the russians are behind the us presidency as well so you know. of course. we have sent out requests for comment from a number of journalism groups will let you know what they say if we get a response meantime let's get reaction now from the u.k. based here in this martin some of these with this good afternoon to you martin short take on this story then the russian foreign ministry says the b.b.c. has been acting cynically the b.b.c. says look we've done nothing wrong what's your view. well i think they clearly were
7:05 am
trying to create some linkage just as the french governments are trying to do the what's interesting is a story is also broken this week in britain about the so-called institute for statecraft and its front organization the integrity initiative or of the other way round based in an annex. textile mill in scotland and they got two million pounds from the u.s. and british governments to basically spread around say russian propaganda but some of the tweets they've been tweeting from this troll factory are actually attacking jeremy corbin the leader of the labor party as a russian stooge now when you've got the governments of the u.k. spending taxpayers' money two million pounds of taxpayers' money on this woman as action alone entirely in psychological warfare against russia it looks like then the idea that journalists are going around to look for a russian connection to what seemed to be spontaneous protests in france is not that surprising although the question is whether they are spontaneous is always in people's minds or maybe it's not the russians who operate who orchestrated them if
7:06 am
anybody is but i think this whole affair stinks really we're beginning to realize how bad the rockies in western media and in intelligence circles which try to dominate unapproachable on a broader point martin is there any surprise to this story got legs the accusation that russian bots are to blame when clearly it's millions of people suffering a big economic squeeze that's why they're out on the streets. well that's true and i think obviously the french government are desperate to try and find some reason why this isn't a no spontaneous protest but stuff i've been reading on the internet in the far recesses of it suggests that it perhaps might be the americans behind such protests because they don't like macaroons increasingly independent attitude towards donald trump now i don't know whether that's true and i think most big big things like this have to have legs because people are genuinely upset no matter no matter who's trying to stir the pot it's like trying to blame the cia for solving dawlish in the one nine hundred eighty s. there was plenty of those plenty of discontent in poland and the cia obviously did
7:07 am
of their fingernails but they weren't running it directly they were working with you know a general trend of opinion just as it's imprints received threats today russia's foreign ministries taking it up with the u.s. see do you think i'll get much joy from that. well i think it's mr repton the b.b.c. obviously looking around for links to the russians they didn't find them and then well what they actually ran with in the end was was more impartial because the russian foreign ministry said the b.b.c. has a reputation for being impartial and it's still relatively impartial but they're going to lose that reputation if they make career making forced errors like this but of course the real story with legs is the one i mentioned earlier the secret service is here spending millions of pounds of taxpayers' money to try and reveal next election in this country that's what it looks like and then really for the foreign secretary here is already asking questions of the government who are this organization why did they have this money why are they making attacks on the loyal opposition in this country is that acceptable of course it isn't and in terms of
7:08 am
just the feeling in the u.k. you were there martin you read the media i'm sure every day to you when this story came out firstly about russia with the most of the skepticism about it and second what's been the reaction to what you've just said see that it pays that you know the british government seems to be came to persuade opinion to you through twitter for example. well to be honest with you this story about the b.b.c. hasn't made it into the mainstream news. here you've picked up on it but basically in britain it's been ignored largely the other story has made it into the mainstream cycle as i say labor m.p.'s including the shadow foreign secretary picked it up but again it's very much in the specialist areas the mainstream news continues to pump out what's basically infotainment. but nevertheless it's out there in the real world and those who are paying attention can see what's going on i'm quite sure this factory in scotland is not the only one it's not just that they're doing what they do is when these things get found out they close them down
7:09 am
to reopen them as something else like cambridge analytical or no longer exists it's just been reinvented as something else bell pottinger is disappeared but all the personnel are still out there calling themselves something else doing the same sorts of stuff they're always been doing they are obsessed with this idea that they can control social movements through social media and i don't think that's the strategy of the russian secret services at all they stick to old fashioned spy craft like the telephone intercept that showed the spirits talking to catherine ashton and admitting a sniper attack in the modern square was carried out by nato elements not by russian elements that was one telephone intercept that's the way you do spying not trying to troll factories that's their way of thinking martin look good to talk you're going to have to wrap it up there and that was a u.k. based journalist martin summers thank you. thank you. now prime minister justin trudeau has expressed concern over two canadians detained in china last week saying his government is taking the situation very seriously he says the arrests are politically motivated resulting from canada being caught up in the ongoing trade
7:10 am
war between beijing and washington. where is the common use of the world china in the united states start picking a fight with each other the escalating trade war between them is going to have all sorts of only interlude consequences on canada and potentially on the entire global economy so we're very worried about that when the rest of canadians are michael covel a former diplomat accused of breaking china's n.g.o.'s law and also michael speicher is an entrepreneur with senior contacts in north korea including kim jong il china arrested them citing alleged activities harmful to national security that was right after the c.f.o. of chinese smartphone maker huawei was detained in canada at america's request he said thick picks up the story. pequot on the high flying chinese think that because if arrest her income is a outrage her home nations claim it's at the request of the u.s. grant her an eye watering bail throw in
7:11 am
a threat of extradition see china then arrest two canadians in retaliation and all that while that's potentially the biggest trade deal the world at the scene is being hammered out by two of the best and parties washington and beijing complicated isn't it well let's try and break it down starting with those two canadian nationals joining me tonight and citizens marco coverage and michael's paiva suspect it's often gaijin in activities that endangered the national security of the people's republic of china china how to warned of the coming retaliation with beijing grave consequences to come into if the wall way c.f.i. was not released but as count as big brother has rushed to its defense the off of the tension of two canadian citizens is unacceptable that they ought to be returned the united states has stood for that whether there are citizens or citizens of other countries whether this washington fits in the picture one show was arrested not because of something she did personally but because the u.s.
7:12 am
thinks the company was trying to evade the american embargo against iran extradition to the u.s. is on the menu mung and others are alleged to have put financial institutions at risk of criminal and civil liability in the united states by deceiving those institutions as to the nature and extent of while these business in iran but it is the snag many major financial companies including america's own j.p. morgan had to pay hefty fines for violating u.s. sanctions in the past yet we've never seen their execs being thrown into custody making the case a wild card but it's trying to seem to suggest the wall of little company puts the size when it comes to making money. if i think it's good for what will be certainly the largest trade deal ever made i would certainly intervene if i thought it was necessary but it seems the man in the oval office is getting the concessions he wanted because beijing has now announced the suspension of tariff hikes on the u.s.
7:13 am
the rest of the two canadians are definitely tied to the arrest of mango and jew there's no doubt about that the timing of the arrest was would have been extremely suspicious otherwise because right now the chinese and the americans are involved in very delicate trade negotiations they have done nothing to the u.s. right now they continue to talk so it will make canada the example. of this situation warning other countries who may be may be tempted to follow. american extradition demands i think the chinese reaction will be slow very well thought out when it comes to united states. banning rap concerts is not the way to tackle a potentially bad influence of lyrics that's what vladimir putin said reacting to a recent spate of hip hop gigs being shut down by the authorities in russia. looks
7:14 am
now to how the issue is generating debate. question what's going on in this video. this guy's called husky his gig got canceled he got on top of the car and started rapping his rhymes out no mike needed the fans were loving it ok have a guess what happened next. he was grabbed by the cops spend a few days behind bars but charges of starting an unsanctioned gathering of people were eventually dropped welcome to the world of russian showbiz and late twenty eight seeing the young hip hoppers corner of it. it was there.
7:15 am
was. some of these videos get more clicks on you tube than the number of people in this country gigs have been cancelled in places from here all the way to here reasons in one case a watchdog suddenly realized the venue's hygiene and condition wasn't good enough or india could skip senior local official said the rejected rappers songs may deal probable blow to the moral and ethical values of the more than society and perm a band was reportedly told to vanish from the city all together and it all got to the point when even the busy man who's got more than ninety nine problems said that
7:16 am
a gig ain't one explosive package with a loop and banning these artists is the least effective way one can come. with to address certain issues such methods would only produce the opposite effect drug screens the most concern naturally since they are the surest way to a nation's to trying. don't millions of teens listen to this kind of music probably quite a few million and drugs and all that dirty language won't be music to the ears of their parents so adults only or eighteen plus tags should be mandatory for most of these gigs but bangle all together come on the smartphone generation will always find a way to hear the rhymes they want to hear plus check out some of the carmine's under huskies videos never listen to her ski before but if the russian prosecution service insists i will start doing it now franks never thought husky was so cool thank you police for sharing info on such
7:17 am
a talented artist and i guess when it comes to hip hop as we know it winds on drugs will probably never find themselves out of tune with the rappers. the trunk of their now italian fashion house prada has pulled a range of accessories featuring monkey like figurines over allegations of racism. people online called the fashion house for not seeing a strong resemblance to racist character was a black people since the pollard gys saying any offense was unintentional the problem ali are fantasy charms they're imaginary creatures not intending to have any reference to the real world and certainly not blackface prada group never had the intention of offending anyone and we have who are all forms of racism embraces imagery or fashion giants getting embroiled in ever more scandals as people accuse
7:18 am
them of being tone deaf to diversity racism and also body image we put the issue up for debate. faint proud to call it completely wrong there it's quite obvious to may that to. put art with a black face and big red lips it's pretty obvious looking back for any any person of ethnic origin to especially a black person to see that i think prada has made it perfectly clear that they had no intention of presenting this says as any kind of racist message or or blackface says it's come to be commonly called when i first saw the image of myself i didn't think straight away to the minstrel show so i think how can you how can such a big brand nowadays when divesting such a big get it completely wrong to save or to think that a company of that size and that reputation would purposely go out and make these
7:19 am
little figurines that would purposely a fan or mock a race of people you'd have to be out of your mind to believe in freedom of speech and freedom of creativity and have a should be done taking into consideration people's feelings when you let people determine what's offensive to the masses you're looking for censorship you're looking for the stifling of creativity they go hand in hand your fiancé still to come there are renewed reports of intense fighting in the yemeni port city for data despite a recent cease fire deal we'll have a look at the details just after this break. if we have a new trade arrangements with china that may build a new foundation for more stable relations i think broadly the if there is a the us has a problem in accepting the rise of china no matter what they do. i've
7:20 am
been saying the numbers mean something they matter the us has over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crimes happen each dish. eighty five percent of global wealth he longs to the ultra rich eight point six percent market saw thirty percent just last year some with four hundred to five hundred three per circuit first second and bitcoin rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building a two point one billion dollar a i industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need to remember one one doesn't show you can't afford to miss the one and only boom but .
7:21 am
again there are reports of face fighting and the yemeni port city if the data despite the warring sides recently reaching a cease fire agreement the un has again drawn attention to the die humanitarian situation in the region according at the world's worst avoidable crisis. a terrible tragedy is unfolding in yemen and it's getting worse millions of people are starving sick desperate they have one message for the world this war needs to stop or a cease fire agreement was reached after human sponsored peace talks in sweden earlier this month meanwhile a recent report by the armed conflict location in the event data project claims that the number of yemenis killed by violence since twenty sixteen has reached nearly sixty thousand and that is far higher than the latest un figure which puts the combined total of dead and injured seventeen thousand minimum and there are
7:22 am
only one of the researches behind that report feels the crisis in yemen has gone largely under reported to despite the colossal scale. from what we could see in reporting at least there has been a very kind of a generally naisi to using fourteen since that ten thousand figure provided by the un the sole official figure since twenty sixteen field many newspapers and media outlets are still using that as you know i think which significantly downplay the devastation collecting fatality numbers is usually the single most difficult piece of information you can get from. because of course there are reporting by years that because there isn't limited access to the bottom of well behind those figures are the personal tragedies of individual families are a big brings us one of the stories.
