9:17 pm
a warm sunny day nothing really stopping people from coming out here and marking the days out in the open in the streets in the square and really that's what they did sounds of people have turned up and really five years is a bit of a long time so i took we took to some of the crimean ends and ask them how their life's changed in this half a decade yet that interested seeing as a resident of the city al say that it happened for the better. and over the past five years trusted changes have occurred in everything even in the general impression of the peninsula. problems have always existed so who owns it all depends on the people when we agree to reunite with russia about it but very few over time they'll be satisfied because they saw the chaos before when you could do whatever you wanted now we have the rule of law now patriotic songs on the stage behind me were briefly interrupted by the address of the russian president vladimir putin has visited the region and he spoke about the including so of the decision he
9:18 pm
had made five years ago effectively giving the peninsula a chance to become part of russia yet again i was really speaking of the problems faced by the region hopefully at least one of them has been fixed once and for all and that is elect electrical supply see crimea as being very dependent on ukraine on its well previous owner so to speak we've had very well we've had very basic infrastructure very basic old infrastructure so we drew most of its electricity most of its electrical supply from ukraine and often here would be either. incapable of or simply not willing to provide enough energy so people's homes would go dark repeatedly the whole of the peninsula would go dark today vote. launched to power plants in full capacity in fact this is so powerful that not only crimea is
9:19 pm
self-sufficient now but also it could export some of that power to other regions and so really the celebrations going on so this is this is a big day for crimea and for russia and for all the people who fled to the streets to celebrate. the u.s. secretary of state has defended washington's backing of the saudi led coalition's bombing campaign in yemen that follows a senate vote last week to withdraw all support my palm peo says its continuation is the way to ensure just peace and to alleviate suffering in the war torn country the senators who voted say they want to end the bombing in yemen and support human rights. but we really need to think about who schumann writes. if you truly care about your many lives you'd support the saudi led effort to prevent yemen from turning into a puppet state of the corrupt british islamic republic of iran the way to alleviate
9:20 pm
the many people suffering isn't to prolong the conflict by handicapping our partners in the fight but by giving the saudi led coalition the support needed to defeat arabian back rebels and ensure just peace. arms deals with saudi arabia are expected to total three hundred fifty billion dollars and apart from military equipment washington provides riyadh with logistics and intelligence our senior correspondent. looks deeper into the u.s. secretary of state's comments. the united states makes no secret of what it stands for freedom justice democracy and saudi arabia the white house stands firm on that even if the senate is having second thoughts voting to end u.s. support for riyadh's endless war in yemen saudi arabia's bloody war in yemen world's worst humanitarian disaster the horrific wall in yemen saudi led quagmire
9:21 pm
we are helping saudi arabia drop bombs on churches and weddings we all want this conflict to end if you truly care about your many lives you'd support the saudi led effort to prevent yemen from turning into a puppet state of the corrupt british islamic republic of iran as opposed to becoming a puppet of the free and fair saudi arabia but what do we know the saudis have waged a four year war against who the rebels who they call terrorists that has turned yemen into a humanitarian catastrophe worse even than syria four and five yemeni civilians twenty four out of twenty eight million need aid to survive three in five or twenty million either on the brink or already starving that is the pump aoe has a solution the united states has given more than two billion dollars to help the
9:22 pm
many people since the start of the conflict. and saudi arabia has given over five hundred million dollars in two thousand and eighteen alone and as pledged an additional five hundred million dollars this year we've works out to about two dollars per hungry civilian per month from washington but adds for the cameras you know where the real money is guns oh yes guns are very very you know five hundred thirty three million dollars five hundred twenty five million dollars the screeners view. peanuts he says twelve point five billion dollars in that the u.s. is selling saudi arabia is peanuts what does that make the aid then but mr pompei zero is adamant if a little bit rabid in his support for saudi arabia and gun sales which really care
9:23 pm
about saudi lives you'd want to stop or run back to these from launching missiles into riyadh amazing how you can twist and turn reality on its head rather than protecting you many civilians from saudi arabia he's protecting saudi arabia from starving many civilians brilliant speaking of protecting saudi lives there is a tease to one life that washington didn't seem so concerned about mr hersh shoji was the victim of a brutal and premeditated killing planned and perpetrated by officials of the state of saudi arabia riyadh has brushed off ickes ations that the rule family had anything to do with it saying it was rude to operation and that seems washington was all too happy to support this explanation you know we really. really really dollars profit us
9:24 pm
oil company. the banks the military and the trump government and usually not the administrations of democrat and republican serving interest though. and so many no relationship all that it means or how or why or just the part that is the priority not the lives of young men or the people of saudi arabia or people of venezuela or for that matter. the. united states has made its largest deployment of strategic bombers to the u.k. more than a decade the b. fifty two aircraft which are capable of carrying nuclear weapons are to take part in nato drills in georgia close to russia's southern border artie's reports. no limits on american military power even when it comes to news that seems to be the prevailing sentiment among certain forces earlier this year two u.s.
9:25 pm
senators put forward a new law to prohibit the first strike use of nuclear weapons by the united states they made it pretty simple the entire text of the law was one sentence it is the policy of the united states not to use nuclear weapons first now that's also the policy of the russian president but top u.s. military brass say that it's unacceptable and i wouldn't recommend any change to simplify and of decision making calculations and also can envision several circumstances where we would not want to remove that option from the president there are some circumstances apparently where nuking somebody who hasn't already knew you first might be a good idea we decided to talk to new yorkers and see what circumstances they think it might be can you think of any situation where we would nuke somebody who had nuke us first. i. now have to say like. i don't think that's right i don't know what the circumstances
9:26 pm
would be i mean like syria i mean that makes sense to me spotlight with. syria what was going on hopefully lands over there not here so in some circumstances nuking somebody first might be a valid decision but what exactly constitutes aggression take it from the acting secretary of defense or competitors of not being complacent china's defense spending china's organized approach to steal foreign technology russia for its part continues to compete asymmetrically with the united states now he made that statement while explaining why the us military budget despite being higher than every other country in the world by billions of dollars was actually going up so russia is doing it and we have to keep up but let's look at what russia is actually doing total combined military budget for nato countries in the year of twenty nineteen is roughly one thousand three hundred ninety five billion euros meanwhile russia is spending thirty nine billion euros so how exactly is the usa catching up china and russia in particular the capabilities developed over the last few years
9:27 pm
to limit our ability to operate freely in space cyberspace land sea and air in the capabilities that we have identified in this year's budget really designed to allow us to project power when it were necessary to ensure interest in the context that an emerging threat for china and russia so at this point us military policy has two major promises number one first strikes with nuclear weapons are a ok and number two russia and china two major nuclear powers are bad and must be opposed can anyone think of a greater recipe for disaster. r.t. new york. more news in thirty two and a half minutes national stay with us. you know i can say that. for example all the brooklyn bridge and i and i sell a bond against the brooklyn bridge and i sell a billion dollar multibillion dollar bond against the brooklyn bridge well basically somebody's going to come and i say ok well deliver them the brooklyn
9:28 pm
bridge and i say well i can have a deed just like in the two thousand a sup. prices there were no deeds for the houses that goldman sachs package says collateralized brokers obligations and then sold into the financial market then the wholesale derivatives market where they didn't have the deed they were just making stuff up by pulling rabbits out of their hat and selling that as a yielding security to pension funds but there's nothing fair. with me giving money a factor to sentenced him to the public will. when the right wing closest project themselves. with the financial merry go round to listen to the woman sitting. next to ignore middle of the room signals. really. mean real news is really cool. you off i go oh
9:29 pm
oh dear it's great you know. we've been a real good shots few begin murders controls all life. becomes or in the last community young people are deciding if they want to not like their parents not like the liberals or. the blacks are always drug school again you always have problems but you are going to focus a lot it's the most ubiquitous going out there most police departments use it almost overstayers in the school that they could get their hands on economies in twenty four hours. through it to chinese kids both racism both police brutality taken cried of there are these kids are a part of all this true. if
