tollways the game so. it's midday here in moscow and you're watching all to international live from all studio with me. welcome to the program we started in venezuela which faces the specter of yet more u.s. sanctions as washington tries to cripple caracas financially and its bid to oust a democratically elected president nicolas mentor by simply recognizing a position. as venezuela's interim president the u.s. seems to think it has already succeeded in affecting regime change with the state department going so far as to journalists who think otherwise. we have noticed in news coverage that some outlets are incorrectly referring to one quite go as the opposition leader or the south proclaimed president.
neither is correct relying on venezuela's constitution one guy joe became interim president of venezuela on january twenty third millions of americans and more than fifty countries recognize one as interim president of venezuela if you get this straight you're complaining because he said let's go for the buy it's i don't you don't think he made a complaint pointing out just trying to correct well it sounds like a complaint to me you know it seems pretty weak he's he's the is the interim president well and we don't want to consider him to be the interim president you know as you say fifty other countries. recognize him as you know president but they're all more than a hundred members of the nation's fifty countries is not even close that. it's time to act in support of democracy and coverage of the legitimate leader the president is going to. war from trees to work we don't
want to feed into rhetoric of victory try to get in a similar vein u.s. senator marco rubio also tried schooling the media busting c.n.n. for using the term self-proclaimed when referring to quite a supposed interim president he said the phrase was used by russia to undermine the constitutional legitimacy of quite as claim. even went so far as to insinuate a possible collusion between c.n.n. and moscow escapes the state of world opinion on the matter of white as a legitimate city. quite a his presidency is recognized by fifty four states the rest of the world i the supports the elected president nicolas maduro has repeatedly been prime to a brutal dictator by the west is neutral all bikes the opposition run somebody yet without recognizing a kind of open takes
a look at into his record as i suppose to take it. there are a whole array of politicians who don't approve of nicolas and dural but one of the labels that he's given is worth exploring according to them nicholas manure oh is a dictator nicolas maduro is a dictator period of the now defunct mature regime there in his brutal dictator and you call this material and his mayhem so what exactly is a dictator now the term generally refers to authoritarian leaders who crush their opposition and have absolute power but what's been happening in venezuela lately. i. mean at this point we've got a minor opposition figure one kwaito declaring himself to be the interim president and at this point he's got the united states and britain backing him he was then banned from traveling by the supreme court so what did he do he then went on
a speaking tour of latin american countries rallying support from those who want to violently overthrow the venezuelan government after that what did he do he stayed in exile fearing for his life knowing that if he returned the harsh regime would kill him right well no he actually felt safe enough to get on a commercial flight and go back to venezuela he still has not been arrested and the united states itself forbids people from doing this kind of thing who have insights set some foot assists or engages in any rebellion against you authority of the u.s. she'll be fined or imprisoned no more than ten years will both imagine that some kind of fringe activist told a good way to go in america. and declared himself to be the president with say venezuela or iran backing him well wait a hasn't been arrested and he's walking around giving speeches freely in venezuela you went out i was able to enter venezuela things to you and your movies asian in venezuela we feel that today we've made
a decisive step towards the conquest of freedom the cold though lopez great ows longtime ally was actually convicted of inciting violence against the venezuelan government his trial received huge international attention and after a brief stint in prison he was in house arrest and from his home he was once again rallying people to overthrow this is how lopez wife described his treatment by the supposed dictatorship and now put those in contact with everyone every day constantly he's being sued together in opposition that's totally united and strong now some people might say that it's only because of the immense pressure on venezuela the mid-air as it swept in and crushed the life of juan guede oh however that doesn't exactly add up because at this point only twenty five percent of the countries in the world recognize kwaito as the president the rest of the world says that the girl is the legitimate leader now in any other country in the world arresting this kind of provocateur would pretty much be standard practice however one boy is free he's walking around venezuela giving speeches inciting people to
engage in violence for his made for social media revolution. has been born and he will not die things are going well in venezuela opposition rallies and protests take place all the time there are many things that you can say about nicolas maduro but brutal dictator is a profile he just doesn't fit cable mop and r.t. new york. and cheese day madeira took part in a ceremony commemorating the sixth anniversary of the death of his predecessor hugo chavez his rival quite only met with public sector unions urging them to take strike action to help bring down the government. political science professor cullen believes as america's a stand rhetoric is not healthy. for the trouble ministration is doing is forcing us. and other countries to jews already gone to war there's a gross lou. who will be elected government of venezuela or are you going to

sharif's appearances on prominent news networks as well as dispatches by his live updates from syria blog posts left his political preferences no secret. why did it do the problem is the brunt. of the syrian regime for. children and civilians the face. the rest he's now speaking out against what he's dubbed a racist and unfair system of citizenship stripping laws i mean k. i came out here to help the innocent people there were being massacred by the bashar regime i'm an aid worker the stories come to light following the lifting of the man's anonymity in a case that saw the u.k. government stripped him of his british citizenship back in twenty seventeen he was informed of the decision with this letter it is assessed that you are a british pakistani jewel national whose travel to syria and is aligned to an al qaeda aligned group your return to the u.k.
would present a risk to the national security over the united kingdom sharif's lawyer has been seeking evidence from the home office to find out why exactly his client was deemed a threat what is it the british government is so frightened of that they don't want these individuals in a court of law and they want to quickly shut them of their citizenship and export them somewhere else i do think that some of these individuals kylie song very sensitive information it will be deeply embarrassing to the british state given the british government's role in the conflict in syria over these past eight years i.e. how much support has a british government various points along we've been given these so-called rebel groups and to which development has been supporting them in terms of the atrocities are being committed by these rebel groups a to exculpate themselves of any criminal offense because you know that they've lost the war has been lost the conflict has been won by the sitting government and its allies you know they're thinking about how they're going to survive in the it pushed conflict world and so they're trying
to put together some kind of defense to try to claim to be innocent that their aid workers who were there are humanitarian grounds the issue of british citizenship being revoked have been in the spotlight to me recently due to a spike in terrorism and crime according to official figures more than one hundred people were stripped of their nationality and twenty seventeen compared to just fourteen the year before as sharif's appeal could. in use he maintains his innocence but the home office seems to have already made up its mind trick in our reporting for our. desponding to other media the u.k. home office refused to comment on the case saying only that every decision is well substantiated r.t. has also requests to comment and is waiting for a reply. the humanitarian crisis in war torn yemen is becoming deeper every day with most of the country's population on the brink of famine some to families have resorted to marrying off their daughters some of them as young as
three years old just to get food. my mother in law keeps beating me and when i run away back to my father's house my father beats me again for a new way i don't want to get married i just want to go back to school son family is a good thing there had been this is no one really where they can marry their daughters and they can bring some dowry and just can't protect the whole families and also their extended members so it is really unfortunate that this is going after some of them that they have received emergency support but you know you don't support are also even limited so they wouldn't mind trying to weigh what are their images what it means so this is the one leaving the family i mean. it is very difficult to call family with these small little support and often the humanity isn't seized
a trace the safety or security concerns. are so aid also we are not able to deliver aid on timely. according to the found report girls in yemen are usually spared consummating marriages until they're just eleven years old but until then they live with a husband and typically do the housework and according to the. i mean organizations yemen is one of the worst countries for children to live in more than eleven million children are in need of humanitarian aid and almost half a million suffer from malnutrition the director of yemen office says the current situation in the country is catastrophic. what is really really. being an even alarm me that almost one third of the total population which is basically ten million just at the brink of crimean and children are malnourished we are all the words you do this all yourself why are and great and
also. to do as an eighteen the color of crisis that was the worst cholera person in the century you. called any ministers are not provided trying to leave and even the fault you've been nonfunctional even for a day i mean forging the will and the humanitarian reduced there'll be much more protest situation. reality adventure puzzle game increase has sparked an outcry over its references to the holocaust in particular it's based on the story of german businessman oscar schindler who saved more than a thousand jews during the second world war the game's website says the players have to assist schindler in saving innocent people after the public outrage the company changed the name of the game from schindler's list to secret agent though the story wasn't altered the jewish community in queens has condemned the king. who
is for them to take a trip to auschwitz to sense even for a fraction of a second the terror of death in the german concentration camp only then can be hoped that they no longer move to the base human suffering we discussed whether games like this are a good way of raising awareness about history or not with our guests. i mean it's a disgrace that today people are even thinking to make. toys or games abodes all of course such a game is part of this rise of fundamentalism there are many people who graduate from high school and don't know about the holocaust or don't know about auschwitz don't know the story of oskar schindler which in itself i think is a tragedy because i think it's important that we always remember what happened there let's be frank and clear with ourselves i mean you really believe that to make such a game we make people aware more by the locals no they just make
them playing a game we go to any real feeling about the issue we have been witness to this witnessing the last year's games of both the days about till all the young people even young muslims that wanted just to repeat what they saw during the game and some of them even left their home on went to syria to iraq to become terrorists so you don't know when you produce such a computer easy to search a game what would be the output what would be the result from what i understand it was certainly not something that was encouraging anti-semitism or making light of the holocaust but instead was putting its users of this experience into this fear in which they were encouraged to save the lives of other people who are under threat by the nazis. a traditional carnival in belgium with
bashar in syria the u.s. military to stop blocking the evacuation of our refugee camp we'll see what's going on that after this break. yes. success. when lawmakers manufacture consent instead to public wealth. when the running clubs to some protect themselves. when the final merry go round lifts and we don't want. to ignore middle of the room sick. leave the room dream real new things
for the world. what politicians do. to put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or somehow want to. have to go right to be cross it's like the forty three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters at my house. there should. welcome back to the program the russian military along with its syrian colleagues have issued a statement accusing american forces stationed in syria of ji railing efforts to back you a people from the infamous rock band camp here's
a quick reminder of what the rock band camp it's. the i believe you. are more on the joint russian syrian state when we got in the car let's not cross live. maria they bluntly accuse us troops of preventing evacuation efforts can you explain what's going on. yes first of all i have to say that dramatic humanitarian and security situation in a lot of the bun camp in southeastern syria has been constantly trigger numerous concerns from the russian side that blame america that is currently controlling
this area along the demilitarized zone between syria and jordan for severe living conditions of the refugees inside the camp that were among other things reportedly openly threatened by jihad is that had come there from syria's northern regions including what can used to be known as the capital of the so-called islamic state this city of raka and not only had managed to settle in that camp believes not without somehow prom the u.s. military on the ground but also to take control over some territories and also over human uteri in a traffic scene the area basically taking people inside the camp hostage both and washington officials have repeatedly confirmed in fact that indeed some former or current islam is probably manage their way to russia has constantly been
calling on some kind of rescue vaccination operation to take people out of the zone supporting this idea with polls showing that most of the people are willing to leave this area and has constantly been calling on america to join the effort by damascus to help improve rather than deteriorate the situation of syrians trapped inside the zone according to different estimates that is right now around forty thousand people eighty percent of them women and children and earlier on wednesday we heard the statement from russia's defense ministry saying that america remains deaf america does not want to support any evacuation and rescue. efforts in the area and also it is doing its best to actually do rail such afr as russia has claimed that the american side is preventing buses carrying refugees destined to
safer places around syria from a trespasser in the us controlled area in that camp their ministry has called on america to stop what it called quotation a military blockade a very strong statement i have to say let's take a listen. the american stationed in the al tonfa zone fails to take responsibility for ensuring a safe and unhindered passage of humanitarian convoys through the fifty five kilometers own they are controlling this is essentially derailed the implementation of a highly important humanitarian operation aimed at rescuing syrian citizens trapped in the rueben camp they had of the us led anti terror coalition in styria has denied all the accusations from the russian side and while the sides of blaming each other for what's going on inside the rock one camp in southeastern syria we have to admit that poor people trapped there continue to suffer and their fate
