2:01 pm
welcome live from russia around the world. has brushed off the entire miller investigation into russian meddling in the u.s. presidential election as total nonsense and aimed at a domestic audience the russian president told the international law. that it was clear from the beginning that there's been no collusion between the kremlin and donald trump reports. an international arctic forum where first of all the journalists and the audience on the other. event wanted to hear answers to questions that had nothing to do with the arctic the journalist was leading the way of the discussion actually made it clear at one point that he wants to stay away from climate change well. i says c o two emissions and
2:02 pm
talk to vladimir putin for some time about international relations and specifically how moscow is getting along with washington and indeed ever since the robert miller investigation was done and dusted and any kind of collusion between russia and donald trump was ruled out we never heard a word from vladimir putin on that specifically well that's up until today. we were saying from the beginning to this commission would not find anything russia did not interfere in the u.s. elections and there was none of the collusion that money was looking for between trump and russia we did not know when he came to moscow he came as a businessman this is complete nonsense designed exclusively for a domestic audience. nothing really to add here it was very clear what the russian president wanted to say here and the next turn in that conversation was rather
2:03 pm
predictable as well if the robert moeller probe is over and if no signs of collusion between washington and mr trump were filed what's next for the ties between the u.s. and moscow what's next and terms of how specifically the two presidents get along will lattimer putin accept donald trump's invitation that dated back to the helsinki summit to washington and could at least these ties between these two countries could they start getting back to normal the russian president said that he wasn't really expecting that to happen and then he went on to say that he believes there is some deep trouble in america internal politics he actually called it a real crisis that never happened in the history of the country. it's part of
2:04 pm
a wider crisis in the us political groups attack villages to million elected president they don't accept the choice of the american people they want to overturn the result is a political crisis unlike anything we've seen in u.s. history so we'll leave it there with all the stuff that has to do with america there was something else very special about the specific international arctic for the participants in fact the leaders from two countries sweden and norway the prime ministers who back in two thousand and fourteen decided to join the chorus of western nations who wanted to isolate russia as a result of the crisis in ukraine now i can remind you that ever since then pretty much all contacts on the highest level work cut well now they are in st petersburg and they are talking directly to president vladimir putin but they decided at least in that particular room to avoid the sharp angles everything they
2:05 pm
said sounded rather diplomatic and they chose to stick his things like carbon emissions climate change and those melting ice is in the arctic which are very important issues and deed as well this is actually the reason why everyone is gathered here but i can tell you that and minds of journalists they want to hear about that molar probe again and again. the u.s. president has pledged to place tariffs with eleven billion dollars on the goods in response to the book subsidies for the european aerospace giant bus and he had to discuss the move found the reaction from europe with our correspondents shot to do bensky and peter all of. eleven billion dollars so it's not peanuts at all that is billion with a big way that donald trump has said he wants to place entire earth on goods coming from the european union into the united states of course when it comes to this
2:06 pm
presidential administration how was it announced through twitter. the world trade organization fines of the european union subsidies to air bus has adversely impacted the united states which will now put cherished on eleven billion dollars of new products the u.s. taking advantage of the u.s. on trade for many years it will soon stop so what type of things are going to be affected by these tariffs if it gets approved by the world trade organization and eventually goes through we're looking at different types of cheeses we're looking at lemons all of oil kashmir's sweaters not electrical wall clocks but the thing is this has nothing to do with cheese and almost certainly has absolutely nothing to do with not electrical war clocks this is all down to an ongoing dispute between the european airspace giant airbus and of course boeing the major u.s. air space giant boeing is the largest producer or and export of aerospace
2:07 pm
technology united states it's a huge colazal to him when it comes not only to commercial aerospace technology but also to military technology as well and of course the plane donald trump flies around in air force one that's also a boeing jet as well there are big problems for boeing right now they've been involved in two fatal air crashes in the last five months resulting in three hundred and forty six deaths that's the crashes involving lion air and ethiopian airways both of those planes that went down were the boeing seven three seven max and that well apart from the obvious tragedy that comes with it. tanked their share price donald trump says despite the problems that boeing has been going through he stands behind the company grounding was a big thing and it's a great company it's
2:08 pm
a truly great company and hopefully they'll figure it out very quickly because it was a big and it's a big decision it's also one of our largest extra orders. one of our you know truly one of the truly great companies of the world to have to figure it out for so they know that they're under great pressure but this just seems like it's donald trump doing business as donald trump those business we have seen it throughout his career but in his presidential korea we saw just last year how he launched into china to the european not promising tariffs on. steel imports into the united states he has said he wouldn't shy away from a trade war that certainly doesn't seem like he's willing to right now peter thank you for those details are paid to all of us speaking to his life from berlin let's cross over to paris now and our correspondent shiela do penske and charlotte what has been the reaction from europe e.u. and china were actually meeting in brussels today to talk about the future of their
2:09 pm
own trade agreements they talked about reform of the in the future which china has said for the first time that it will cooperate in the many were expecting them to touch on those trade wars which of both blocs have with the u.s. but nothing was said at perhaps saying nothing about trump and trade rules with them that speaks more volumes indeed but we did hear from the european commission in regards to this new element this eleven billion dollars of tariffs that trump is talking about slapping on european products it said it remains open to discussions with the u.s. but says it will hold those discussions as long as there are no preconditions to the. we you know the european commission has also said it will be speaking to the w t o of a traitor to get them involved in this the commission is starting preparations so
2:10 pm
that the you can probably take action based on the arbitrator's decision on retaliation rights in this case the european union remains open for discussions with the united states providing these without preconditions and a mf'er outcome we've also heard from the e.u. in regards to that figure that eleven billion dollar figure same for them that that is a grossly exaggerated figure and that's echoing what we've also heard from us which is course at the eye of the storm in regards to see this says also he sees no legal basis for these u.s. proposals these tariffs on european products are saying that it's also had taken all the measures that it was asked to comply with according to a w t o report that came out in two thousand and eighteen this is what tells us what to say we don't seen a legal basis for this all this is leading to
2:11 pm
a necessary trade tensions and shows that the only reasonable solution in this long tree dispute is a settlement which is something we have said since the beginning meanwhile here in france we've been hearing for france's finance economy minister play no limit he's been talking about the fact that they need to be a friendly solution to these trade wars between the e.u. and the us it doesn't look like that is something that's going to go down well we asked economist and author stephen king how he expects the e.u. to react and when she went industries that might target. doing what trump is a totally different experience in dealing with a any president previously those would bluster but then that would be negotiated by the diplomats this would have been almost decided by trump tweets so they know the only way to pod is to fight back directly and i'm pretty certain i will slap tariffs on american products and i might well go for the so the areas where america has a obvious advantage which is in computing design of computing maybe even intellectual
2:12 pm
property i mean i'm not trying claim to live in billion worth of subsidy i'm sure that's vastly exaggerated but if you take a look at the level of contracts that boeing got over the last couple of years it's getting about twenty billion in contracts to you from the pentagon now we know anybody who produces the pentagon massively over process so fundamentally this is subsidies are going coming in through the military wing of america which is like a lodger than anything your opinion in a strong it evolves. redlining up the toughest internet rules in the world so says a government plan called online homes which suggests penalizing or even blocking websites that fail to take down potentially harmful content covering everything from child abuse to disinform nation but as party boy can explain to the riff is that where there's regulation there's also censorship too much freedom can be dangerous that's the message from the u.k. government which has unveiled ambitious new plans to avis the this safest corner of the internet a country that's famous for bringing in mary poppins is aiming to be the well best
2:13 pm
online nanny with pushing a legal duty of care on these companies to keep uses safe and if they fail to do so tough punishments will be imposed. the era of social media firms regulating themselves is over it's time to do things differently it's time to keep our children safe so how is the british government going to make the u.k. the safest place to enjoy the net well for starters there are going to be some strict new rules any company that allows online interaction will be responsible for their users safety as well as the content that appears on their services in the most obvious examples that will mean purging illegal material related to terrorist and child sexual exploitation and abuse and if companies fail to clean up their act the likes of facebook and twitter will be put on the naughty step by
2:14 pm
a new independent regulator for the internet companies will face substantial fines for failing to pull down dangerous or extremist materials if the fines don't work bosses of the offending firms could be liable to criminal prosecution and if that fails to websites could be blocked entirely for u.k. internet users and that regulator should have teeth so we're going to consult not just on remedial notices on fines and that can be up to four percent of global turnover at the moment none of this is law yet they'll be twelve weeks of public consultation only after that draft legislation will be drawn op but there are already concerns over the prospect of tough new regulations there's so much come to know that the can just influence. well really anybody but especially the younger generation kids i would disagree i think the internet is something which is open
2:15 pm
and it was a good thing that it was always open and not regulus but in any form of government or whatever i think it's probably a good idea i think this is enough regulate that i think it's. pretty good. idea i think it's a good idea to have some protection in there but its plans how stringent and how close they are to every day stuff internet needs better regulation most definitely why. two three four. and then the government says it wants to remove what it calls harmful content but who will be the arbiter of what stays out up and what goes down so those social media companies will have to do two things first is to set out filters process to see just to show that they are doing whatever they can you know to to prevent material that could potentially cause serious harm to young children and out of people in the second they will have to
2:16 pm
act in a speedy manner to any request to remove such material at the moment the government is still deciding whether the job of regulating should fall on the shoulders of a new independent body or an existing one like broadcast regulator off kong and when it comes to the big social media fans well like students craving more stringent discipline facebook has tentatively welcomed the plan for greater and government oversight with a caveat or to. these are complex issues to get right and we look forward to working with the government and parliament to ensure the new regulations are effective the u.k. government says it wants to be a trailblazer but the question is how to implement strictest safety measures without restricting freedom of the internet. it's a decisive day for the israeli prime minister as the nation votes in the general
2:17 pm
election and even netanyahu could be in office for a fifth consecutive term if he wins but he faces tough competition when six million people are eligible to vote at more than ten thousand polling stations across israel and also abroad a middle east correspondent paula slayer takes a look at the front runners. there is something for everyone in the israeli elections there are more than fifty parties competing although only two have a real chance of forming the next government but basically could party headed by prime minister benjamin netanyahu who fancies himself as a strongman among the successes he's talked about it is getting his ally american president donald trump to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital to recognize israeli sovereignty of the golan heights and to also label iran's revolutionary guard as a terrorist organization but that's not enough for the prime minister just before the elections he was asked if he would consider and mixing territory in the west bank yet we will go to the next stage in imposing israeli sovereignty in the west
2:18 pm
bank has made opponent is the same tryst with a distinguished military background for me is way he army chief guns he appeals to voters who feel that netanyahu has been in power for too long i think benjamin attorney all have done a lot for the country he served in public life fall into decryption thirteen years as a prime minister but his research enough is enough whoever wins will bring little joy for palestinians israelis in general are less inclined to compromise on the issue particularly interesting enough when it comes to young people according to a poll by the israel democracy institute we asked israelis on the streets of tel aviv what's his appeal to young people and their generation is much more violent. in the relieve like in the extreme everything is extreme an attorney oh no with that fear creates a lot of unique humanity a. kind of a feeling of togetherness it's not so surprising that. younger populations.
2:19 pm
as. many guns. is way too much in control. i like to be really don't trust them a little relieved. by limping around i think and she's successful now as it is. and. i don't know if one day someone has to be there's been this segregation against it in the last several years and there's a very good chance this is going to prison in the next year. except the to in his own presidency as an achievement any significant achievement so it's billed as one of the tightest races in years and if benjamin netanyahu confounds his critics he's on course to be israel's longest serving premier will know more in about an hour after voting ends in those first exit polls coming out of the internationals right
2:20 pm
across it and we'll let you know soon as those indicative results come through. in the. u.k. could be set for a lengthy breaks it delayed diplomats are currently locked in talks ahead of a crisis meeting in brussels on wednesday and of signal that they don't believe that a short extension to the withdrawal period will help break the current deadlock earlier on tuesday the u.k. prime minister met with the german chancellor angela merkel in berlin in attempt to gain a short support for a delay to june the thirtieth laughter was to resume a then jet off to paris where she met with the french president the diplomatic dash comes after the british parliament passed a bill requiring the prime minister to seek yet another extension to exit the european union and it's almost three years since the referendum and many in the u.k. of changed their mind on whether they should leave the union and all the town of boston which is about one hundred kilometers north of london is home to thousands of migrants from eastern european countries back then they voted overwhelmingly to leave the you so we went to see where the pendulum is now. the people already voted
2:21 pm
. so they should we have to vote we do so much to stick to it as best we can and that's get out. of its price thank you all with the jokes even on the land make news today the wife has these make it the job is now we have no tradition at least we're not even set up right still for case that offends papal. respect this town you know to drink on the. site was not time if you integrate in the community it's work to pay your taxes so you try to you know get along with the others i think there shouldn't be any problems because we have people of the world that we all put on we belong to each other we should help each other instead of like my commute to theirs that. european court in strasburg's ruled russia violated the human rights of prominent opposition figure when he was put under house arrest and twenty fourteen he's done
2:22 pm
a course that has the details of the case lawyer and political activist alex involving is the leader of the progressive party one of russia's major unregistered opposition parties now the russian government did put him under house arrest in two thousand and fourteen after he and his brother were accused suspected of theft and laundering money from a russian company called eve now the european court of human rights is saying that the government was actually trying to curtail novell needs political activities by confining him to his house and according to his lawyer the strausberg court is demanding that the russian government pain of only over twenty thousand euros in reparations and he's already gone on social media to say that this was a victory for him. victory the european court if human rights is just acknowledged my house arrest in twenty fourteen was a legal violation of our schools five ten and eighteen of the human rights convention now moscow also fired back against the court's decision against the russian government kremlin spokes person dmitri peskov gave an official statement
2:23 pm
saying that the decision was certainly an anticipated the decision is quite surprising i can see we expected it it's hard to grieve with its narrative this isn't the first time deval nice had a run in with russian authorities now he was barred from running for president back in two thousand and eighteen because of a previous conviction of fraud and back in two thousand and sixteen the e e e c h r ordered the russian government to pain of only fifty six thousand euros in damages because of another prison sentence for embezzlement so russia the russian government actually stuck to its guns on that one but all the avani continues to state that all the charges and sentences made against him were politically motivated so with the e.c. h.r. again making a ruling against the russian government moscow's course of action has yet to be seen. the un backed government in libya has condemned monday's strike on an airport in tripoli as a war crime forces led by general khalifa haftar launched an offensive last week in
