a factor in the recent crash that claimed the lives of one hundred fifty seven. it's ten o'clock here in moscow and you're watching r.t. international live from all studio with me in india today welcome to the program all eyes are on the ecuadorian embassy in london amid suggestions that founder julian assange will be expelled from the compound he's been holed up inside since being granted asylum six years ago wiki leaks tweeted it expects a song to be removed from the embassy within hours to days citing its high profile sources in the ecuadorian government i quote dorian president lenin moreno earlier claimed the whistleblower had repeatedly violated his asylum terms. yeah yeah that's because too many times mr sanchez violates the cream and we reach with him
and his attorney he can freely talk he can freely express himself really cannot lie or hack private accounts or phones we keep leaks and gauges in espionage and hacking snooping on phones even getting photos of my bedroom what i eat and how my wife and daughters and friends daunce. the espionage just mentioned is collected to the latest papers released by wiki leaks in february alleging there are no benefits from an offshore account in panama or the leak including e-mails and phone calls the ecuadorian president to a series of corruption cases including money laundering something denies former ecuadorian president rafael correa though says there's plenty of evidence of guilt . this is a huge case one of the most important serious corruption case this in history proves we have a lot of proof it really really really is we have been in secret out the crazy
counting done by world bank we have this is we know really. long a lot of. insanity is good when days when. you know for instance the government major and ghost or easter. term usually. extremely. fine. things but when nice account will be open we will be able to see where does the money go on the. most. i repeat there is no choice. in whether the audience she has seen this and she saw her going into our constitution she cannot be a danger to the next day or whatever and they go remember most probably the most but there is right where we will see what. we do i could always
foreign ministry has reportedly called purported expulsion a rumor if expelled from the embassy a science fair he could face extradition to the u.s. where federal prosecutors are investigating wiki leaks the probe relates to wiki leaks releasing classified u.s. documents including secret ones on the afghan war and cia spy tools it's focused on alleged russian meddling into the u.s. presidential election and twenty sixteen. sign supporters set up camp outside the embassy and we managed to speak to some of them. world this close is time from a sanctuary for a tribe really for joy and with the change of presidency and i would or and it seems that mr marino once spoke with her because i knew that i'd started to get. my vironment incredibly toxic inside the building hoping to walk out billion has been blamed for having leaked or having exposed the scandal surrounding marina at the
moment that the world should know he does not have access to any form of communication and he is no longer in charge of wiki leaks so how he could possibly do that we don't know this is just a whole sham and the whole scam. us congress has passed a bill against american involvement in society rabies war now in both chambers in both these so-called war powers act to stop us from supporting riyadh without congressional approval the motion has to dodge some sneaky efforts to block it as it explains. fine print a few lines of text that can ruin you financially allow facebook to know more about you than your family and friends ever will and keep the u.s. sponsoring a war that has led to the world's worst humanitarian crisis the us has passed a resolution to stop washington support for the saudi led campaign in yemen for
a very long time many have been desperately calling for this while the war hawks in congress have been equally desperate to prevent it from passing and the means that they've resorted to to derail any such initiative absolutely spectacular. when house democrats put forward a resolution like this last time republicans added an amendment to it which condemned anti semitism this tragedy is merely one part of an upset in development that is a merged in recent years a resurgence of anti-semitism now what does anti semitism have to do with the war in yemen you are ask nothing but follow the hands the resolution passed in the house but was eventually refused to vote in the senate because it contained a bit irrelevant to the main subject yemen and that bit was yes the anti semitism
amendment which house democrats didn't have the guts to argue to get rid of out of fear as to sounds in a phobic and it's not the only time when yemen's fate was decided by the small print. last year donald trump signed into law a bill which he described like this through fires floods and freezing weather we will always stand with the american farmers the farm bill doubles the amount of farmers that they can borrow to expand and improve their farms you sure sounded pleased in this clip yet i have my suspicion that concerns for american farmers have little to do with it because this bill appeared on his table with an attachment blocking the vote on yemen and an identical thing happened a month before that. the house rules committee voted to advance the manage our wolves act that lifted the ban on hunting gray wolves and yes blocked
a vote on the u.s. involvement in the yemeni war which is an absolute outrage if you ask me because look in these big this is how can you allow hunting a creature as beautiful as that but in all seriousness though congress finally passing the human bill without any cabinets is a major milestone indeed but it is said to appear on donald trump's table next and just take a wild guess what's going to happen 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 so yeah when you fix all the farmer's misery and manage all your wolves you always have mr president to rely on we had intervened in yemen in twenty fifteen out of the process the president was asked to by the rebels the bill passed by congress has yet to be
approved by donald trump. that is as you saw our flounders the head of international action center doesn't think the trunk. the resolution will very much likely go back again they'll be other votes and other efforts president trump has absolutely tied himself to the feudal monarchy. and to the hollande and solomon so there is a certain level of international embarrassment the saudis still year to to crush the movement in yemen and that's what's really behind this vote while the vote was important and at least pushing back the total and overwhelming u.s. support for saudi arabia's criminal war against yemen it's a war that would not one day of it would be possible without u.s. support naval blockade air refueling for years it's been four years of disaster for
the people of yemen. nato has agreed a package of measures to step up efforts in the black sea and counter russia in the region with more surveillance and exercises promised that's according to the alliance is secretary-general speaking at nato seventieth anniversary celebrations . so we are stepping up their efforts. to see. just agreed with the black sea region we just agreed a package with more civilians exercises on old issues which we. strongly believe or relevant for the black sea region and of course also the working with all partners georgia and ukraine it has branded russia a global threat with the un stoltenberg saying the country's made the world a more dangerous place. but him or putin harbors dark dreams of imperialism he wants to split our alliance and weaken our democratic result still russian
aggression russia's attacks on western democracies and in the context of russian efforts all around the world if russia did not exist it would be necessary to invent russia just to keep nato going that's the impression that you get from the summit and the anniversary celebrations that just took place in washington d.c. what worries them seems to be russia's presence anywhere russian efforts all around the world whether that's efforts in ukraine. russians continued. in activity in syria talked about it in venezuela talked about what they did in the save as of and they want them out in each case we are doing our best collectively to respond in the case of venezuela the united states says it's responses being prepared as well and what doesn't worry them is their own presence at russia's borders really why would russia be nervous about such moves nato is adamant to present itself as purely a defensive bloc quickly forgetting the havoc it regularly creates around the world
. but even with nato as number one enemy so clearly pronounced there is still kind of a lack of unity within the block the loudest retort seems to be coming from turkey we do still caution and so eager to join you to join nato his demand for turkey to abandon a deal is already been completed shares disrespect for terrorists over its. that's that's how nato second biggest members seem to respond to washington's ultimatum turkey must choose. those who want to remain
a critical partner the most successful military alliance in the history of the world. we're doesn't want to risk the security of the partnership. by making reckless decisions that undermine our lines and even mr stoltenberg was somewhat disconcerted by this us or them rhetoric it is a national decision. for each other to decide on determined capabilities actually from washington's point of view it's not just russia that nato member countries shouldn't be purchasing from china is also dangerous for the risks associated with the installation of chinese technology and systems related to security there is undoubtedly the risk and every sovereign nation that will make its own decision and then the united states will make its decision so it sounds like friends of the united states are free to trade with the united states alone beyond the u.s. not trading or blocking us corporations from trading with other countries is
very conscious and energetic attempt that's carried out by the u.s. by the state department and the treasury department prevent other countries from trading with those countries that have been targeted and we see this in regard to iran we see sanctions against russia cuba venezuela north korea sanctions against china many many countries in the world are sanctioned to one degree or another in order to block certain kinds of trade and normal economic relationships what are considered today normal economic relationships in again the interest of a strategy of global domination. is trying to get tough on fake news with president emanuel micron pushing through a needle to battle misinformation however it seems some social media giants a computer but just how to implement it as solid penske reports. ahead of the e.u. elections the french government information service or g.i.s.
launched a campaign aimed at boosting voter registration but twitter found that the we thought campaign is in violation of france's own anti fake news law and through an accident and the storm broke twitter his actions were called out all day. due to does not know how to do this at this time and has therefore decided to have a completely extreme policy cutting and is supposedly a political campaign they were. illegal i thought it was an april fool's joke to two blocks public complaint for voter registration so as not to respect the un to fake news transparency rules appalling and illegal two of his priority should be to fight content glorifying terrorism not campaigns to register on electoral rolls of a democratic republic. after a lot of pressure twitter quickly related to it after numerous discussions we have
decided to allow an encouraging electoral put suspicion but such burns don't always end on a high note the social media platform is known for banning and suspending accounts often without reason including those it considers russian bought. even movie accounts have been suspended for no obvious reason take the pro-life film on planned off the raking in six million dollars at the box office on opening weekend it found its twisty recently around one hundred fifty thousand followers were dropped and it doesn't stop from the left to the right of politics twitter often acts as the judge and the jury so enraged to users that many are leaving the platform altogether the problems become so embarrassing to twitter that it's now going to stop and now seeing how many uses it keeps using twitter may have appeased
the french government for now but all the birds circling overhead charlotte dubin ski r.t. paris. has apologized after admitting that system failure was a factor in two recent crashes involving the company's new seventy seven x. eight model the two disasters happened within six months of each other together claiming three hundred forty six lives. with the release of the preliminary report of the ethiopian airlines flight three zero two accident investigation it's apparent that in both flights the maneuvering characteristics augmentation system known as an cas activated in response to erroneous angle of attack information it's our responsibility to eliminate this risk we own it and we know how to do it. the disasters involve the boeing seven three seven. x. which has an anti stoning feature and the c.e.o.

a third party supplier but i think everybody is focusing on the software that caused the nose down motion when i think the initial question should be why is that giving bad information the u.n. security council meets on friday to discuss the latest military escalation in libya more on that story after this break. you know world big partisan do things a lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're
