8:01 pm
broadcasting logic of this is r t international and john thomas glad to have you with us. and president trump has said russia needs to get out of venezuela warning that all options are on the table the threat comes after around one hundred russian troops touched down in caracas on saturday a move called an unnecessary provocation by washington. russia just to get out. we'll see the all options are out. just so you understand all options are off. moscow's already responded to trumps a threat by asking the u.s. to take the lead and remove its troops from syria earlier artes to go to join my colleague neil harvey with more. well the u.s. is very touchy when it comes to venezuela who could have thought right so here's
8:02 pm
what happened and what sent washington basically fallout grow over the weekend russia had sent about eight hundred of its military personnel over to caracas and this is exactly what triggered washington this is exactly what triggered the united states they called it a provocation now you have trump saying that russia should get out of venezuela right now here's what trumps the national security advisor john bolton had to say in regards of this have a listen united states will not tolerate hostile foreign military powers meddling with the western hemisphere's shared goals of democracy security and the rule of law the venezuelan military must stand with the people of venezuela so really you can see how washington really views venezuela as its own backyard where it's free to do whatever it wants freely so for instance one washington cherry picks a president it likes for venezuela forget the elections it's fine when russia sends its military personnel their advisors for instance that's
8:03 pm
a big no no that's. just the only they did seem pretty thick united states won't tolerate foreign military powers meddling let's move it on though what's moscow fishley had to say about this has been saying that nothing out of the ordinary really is happening here it's been pointing to the found that more score and caracas has an agreement struck all the way back in two thousand and one that allows moscow to send a small contingent not of its combat troops but military advisors to with the country to venezuela and in fact there are well there are good reasons for that i should say because venezuela has historically been a major customer of russia's weapons of russian made weapons many of them very elaborate and it is difficult to use them so that's why military advisers that's why it's natural for them to come to the country. teach the venezuelan military the ropes of how to operate these complex systems like the s three hundred for instance
8:04 pm
the missile defense systems now when it comes to the crisis in venezuela as a whole most corps is maintaining that it has been acting in strict accordance with international law in fact it says that its position is one of the key factors why washington hasn't intervened in venezuela more than it already has done also it has said that washington's position on this has basically denied latin american countries its sovereignty have a listen the us has once again decided to bring order to latin america starting with venezuela we regret that the organization of american states has aided washington in straightening its colonial habits as if unaware that any other country in the region getting touring fall under u.s. pressure and i mean any other country in this sense i mean it's not an empty not a thread but not an empty warning in this sense because previously washington had already sees that it has cuba nicaragua on its regime change list so with i mean
8:05 pm
there's a good ground for that to. political commentator and journalist of john white says that russian troops in venezuela send a powerful message to washington. to just further evidence of an empire that's entered its mad ok's in the same week as a trump administration it legally recognized the illegally occupied city in golan heights israeli soldier integrity no decision diktats against russia for getting to act in accordance with a treaty that it's sane with the sustained government of israel the legitimate government of venezuela the choice of a key president nicolas maduro under the country's existing constitutions even though there's only a hundred russian troops and military advisers in venezuela just arrived at the weekend there symbolically it sends a very powerful message because this is a new development in twitter and multiple oddities a new game in town multiple out of tape exists for the washington links to accept
8:06 pm
or not and the fact that these military advisors are operating in conjunction with the now i in latin america which the u.s. has long considered its body out and we know that the u.s. especially this trip administration believes that venezuela is a wholly owned subsidiary of washington and then it again a sense of eighty per phone messages are very strong message and i think washington is very worried about the symbolism of these russian advisors are writing in venezuela more than the out about what size the forces or capability. meanwhile venezuela's opposition leader has announced the first a actions of the new opposition plan to oust president nicolas maduro will start on the sixth of april however while gordo did not specify what the actions would entailed his words come in the wake of a second major power outage in the country the venezuelan government thinks it knows who is behind the blackout with the country's vice president naming the u.s. secretary of state my pump
8:07 pm
a national security advisor john bolton and republican senator marco rubio or. a trio of misfortune perversity and criminality. on monday such then much of venezuela remain without electricity just two weeks after a similar blackout local media claimed that up to sixteen to twenty three states were affected including the capital caracas many people were unable to go to work as public transport was not working. i usually leave three in the morning and today i had to leave at five am it's not worth going out when it's dark because you're going to be wrong to. have to go because there is almost no public transport and yesterday it took me two hours to walk home from work so it was an act of sabotage by through squalid treacherous thank to their president quite oh. but he said the uncertainty that currently exists makes you question what you buy as you just don't know whether what you are buying will be
8:08 pm
a waste without electricity. well communications minister jorge rodriguez has uploaded pictures and videos of a damaged power station saying that opposition linked criminals intentionally started a fire to sabotage the system. and the end of february billionaire richard branson organized a benefit concert on the venezuela colombia border to raise money for aid for venezuela a month on though and it's not clear where that money has gone. well it is going. to try to write. it that way that. all goes to waste a hundred million dollars in sixty days. and
8:09 pm
then sold. an interview with one who was asking for that because well to help i decided to pick up the phone and speak with him or my. i believe that the live eight concert that was announced and sponsored by richard branson was a complete failure they had claimed that they would raise one hundred million dollars for humanitarian aid but when the concert was coupled with the u.s.
8:10 pm
claim that it would bring in humanitarian aid which was neither a humanitarian nor any it was a political weapon that was used against the venice well in government and the ball a very revolution so i'm not surprised that it was a failure and yet what is needed for the people of venezuela to overcome the economic difficulties is for the united states and the european allies to lift the egg. nick sanctions which are causing the greatest damage to the country's economy and we demand that the u.s. get its hands off then. u.k. lawmakers have spent the day debating eight alternative breaks and options including the possibility of a no deal brags that alongside approving the statutory instrument the changes the brags that day m.p.'s voted against all eight options are more. just an indication of how divided parliament is and how divided the country here in the
8:11 pm
united kingdom really is on the question of bragg's with all of these choices eight of them they really contain the full spectrum of choices from leaving with no deal to revoking article fifty completely and overturning bragg's it and not one of those options or any of them in between managed to secure a majority within the house of commons department of deal with the european union the one she's agreed with them just twice been rejected by record margins by the house of commons and we also hear earlier this evening that the prime minister to resign may have partners in government the northern irish party that the u.p.a. they've come out and said again that they won't be supporting the prime minister's deal because for them it challenges the integrity of the united kingdom so there are some who are saying that if parliament doesn't have the numbers well then that needs to be another general election to try to clear up this mess and to find a majority for one option or the other and that's actually the favored position of the labor leader jeremy corbin who continues to be confident that he could win and
8:12 pm
the future election but all eyes now will turn to potentially friday and whether or not the speaker of the house john bercow will allow the prime minister to bring her back for a third time and as they say perhaps it will be time lucky for to reason it does simplify what's now one offer which really is. in the european union speeches we thank you all we know due to all that is now what's on offer and if we pressurize a lot of the m.p.'s course each point theresa may can bring her back to the house which will be seen now is shuji important to do because actually the bank's going to be the only option and they are. leaving you can you say without bricks and. theresa may has confirmed that she will step down as u.k. prime minister once she has delivered bragg's it to downing street says that she

8:14 pm
party leader jeremy corbyn to this latest announcement he has tweeted this in response to what the prime minister has announced to resume a pledge to turin peace to stand down if they vote for her deal shows once and for all the chaotic brigs that negotiations have been about party management principles or the public interest the change of government can't be a tourist job the people must decide well let's idea of theresa may potentially leaving if her deal is in the end except it has been circulated here in westminster for quite some time with rumors going around about the possibility of her doing this in order to gather the necessary numbers for her deal to be backed i mean of course you remember that this is the same deal that was turned down. twice at the house of commons the way it was agreed with the e.u. when the latest deadline extension if to reset may's deal does get approved in the
8:15 pm
end the bracks a deadline is now may twenty second so any major political changes would be taking place afterwards. jones a professor of economics at lancaster university in the u.k. says party politics have bound to teresa mayes hands. the british approach to groups it has been entirely governed by party politics this isn't a has to keep the conservative party together by proposing a kind of compromise arrangement that to some extent of these satisfy the hard line breaks it has and also there remain a sort of softer griggs it was her own party and since i don't really take it. all together there is meant that she's been. across the house. in order to try and get a good proposal. you know security council has met to discuss donald trump's
