long as you want to get it about. to make money. it's one of. britain's prime ministers accusing the brics an extension from the e.u. until october the thirty first but is warned not to waste any more time. russia and the united states low horns in the u.n. security council with america's vice president giving a blunt assessment of the venezuelan ambuhl. with all due respect mr ambassador you should be sure. you should return to venezuela. and tell nicolas maduro that his time is up. a new study shows anonymous twitter accounts big used to promote the ideas of the french president and his ruling party bus despite a mine of a cross pledge to fight fake news. hello
good morning starts international live from russia ten am here now in moscow one is kevin owen here with your latest thirty minute news update if you just get me a morning briefing at a brand new day the big news this morning is breaks it again the european union is allowing britain's prime minister a new breck's an extension this time till october the thirty first well for a tense e.u. summit last night in the small hours of thursday morning the leaders came to an agreement but issued a warning to to the u.k. not to misuse the time. this extension of the flexible expect it. so little bit shorter expected but that's still enough. to find out first for solution please. do not waste this stuff i have to leave.
my joke of the first of. this so my guess would be the true reason of not the most so should be course if we have to leave to let you know. i. will if briggs it wasn't already a horror show filled with gruesome ghouls and scary characters it does seem that the new deadline for article fifty p. briggs deadline will be the thirty first of october how when this was hammered out at a deal into the late evening in the early hours of thursday morning we understand there was a an agreement to have a much longer extension being granted to the united kingdom however it was the french in a manual micron that were the ones saying no that they wanted a shorter extension otherwise they wanted the u.k. to will make some pretty big concessions including giving up their seat on the
european commission while they remained a member state they were told by john claude younger the current european commission president that was definitely not going to happen what it means though is that the united kingdom will have to field candidates in the upcoming european elections the reason may arrived in brussels saying she wanted an extension only until june the thirtieth now it seems that with running on into october and then having to put forward candidates for the european elections there's a lot of people in our own party calling for her head but as leaders were leaving the summit everybody pretty much was saying this was the best deal possible the best compromise that could be come to know that the risks huge frustration for many people that i had to request this extension the u.k. should. has left the e.u. by now and i sincerely regrets the fact that i have not yet been able to persuade parliament to approve a deal which would allow the u.k.
to leave in a smooth and orderly way but the choices we now face are stark and the time table is clear sense to this agreement we preserve the world functioning of zero european union i see we fix a deal and all those years of consequences before the first of november which will be zero rival of the new commission so for me this is a good solution it's still were i think that in order to give greater leeway and room to the decision making process the decision we've taken today is a good one but that's the extension we have at the moment it's not the one year it's also not the couple of months that to reason may entered into today's summit wanting herself as usually with things in europe it's somewhere in the middle so the new deadline said there's a host of options on the table them for the divorce from the european union parliament could still adopt some agreement deal and leave the e.u. at any time or it could complete the opposite thing and revoke article fifty
completely and cancel breaks it altogether after all this or six months could also be enough for a general election or another referendum on brics it's still really all over the odds isn't it now the prime minister's next move is to brief the house of commons on thursday afternoon about it meantime you carry a piece stephen wolfe believes the new delay is far from more people in britain voted for. this is about the fundamental decisions of whether the people of our country should be asked to vote on something and our politicians take the exact opposite decision politicians over people not people over politicians i don't think it's what most people expected three years ago when they voted to leave and i think it's going to cause an awful lot of upset and anger and huge disappointment in the political process and our politicians are the key fundamentals of leaving the european union was that we would not be broken trolled by the european union laws
and as a consequence we could even have our own laws which would divert your way from the european union a custom union doesn't do that secondly we'd be able to negotiate our own trade deals a custom union doesn't allow that so in all the key points that we argued that would independent nation be like that canada or australia or new zealand or india or brazil or all these countries in the world we will not be like them we will effectively be a state in the european union run by the european union but perhaps we just no representation at the table. next to this morning u.s. vice president mike pence has called on the united nations to revoke the credentials of venezuela's ambassador to demand came in a heated security council meeting is seen as another show of support them for washington bag opposition leader one why does declared himself interim president of the south my country back in january. this body should revoke the credentials of venezuela's representative to the united nations with all due respect mr ambassador
you shouldn't be here. you should return to venezuela. and tell nicolas maduro that is time is up. it's time for him to go. to field if you have the power in your hands to expel your enemies from the united nations those that you do not like indicates to me that you don't understand the charter of the united nations and the purposes and principles of the united nations so stop interfering in the affairs of other states you will only gain respect from that it was a duty but you don't like it when others interfere in your affairs no one likes that. embattled venezuelan president nicolas maduro meantime still has power and still has control despite u.s. economic and diplomatic pressure to oust him russia's ambassador to the u.n. says events at the security council were another attempt by washington at regime change caleb maupin fall of the session like pets the u.s. vice president represented the usa and gave remarks harshly critical of the
venezuelan government he told a heart wrenching story of an interaction he adds with a venezuelan father and his sons and i'll never forget when a father looked at me with his two young boys standing at his side and said how hard it was. as a father to come home at the end of the day and say. we're not eating today. and as he said it is too little boys looked up. and nodded. to the you could you in the commuter we have already seen in other regions of the chilling stories about the suffering of people in iraq and syria and libya from witnesses are based in the west on the group that is after that the real suffering began in those countries and still hasn't stopped do you want the same in venezuela russian ambassador on made the point that essentially the situation in venezuela can't simply be blamed on the government that interference by the united states and efforts by countries
around the world to interfere in venezuela's affairs and create a crisis in the country had a lot to do with the current situation we would use it with one hand you are grabbing venezuela by the throat introducing new sanctions and destructions that prevent the country from developing normally with the other hand you are picking the pockets of venezuela you are shamelessly expropriating venezuelan assets in western banks the venezuelan government criticized forces around the world for recognizing the individual declared to be president by the united states the self-proclaimed president of venezuela who is not recognized by the majority of countries in the world pointing out that one great oh and his his self appointed government doesn't control a single street within venezuela itself when it comes to the situation in venezuela and who is responsible for some forces simply blame the venezuelan government and are calling for its elected president maduro to step down however other forces look
at the united states and other countries and look at their efforts to create a crisis in the country and undermine the elected government there are people leaving venezuela absolutely that's true because u.s. economic destabilization and sanctions have laid rock to the economy billions of dollars literally confiscated and sanctions we should remember sanctions are a weapon or literally because of sanctions venezuela. is receding now. it's been reduced eighty percent your essential narratives that means even basic things like insulin are now in short supply and cause them as well or their purchase what they did purchase for years on the world market and it's become a routine weapon on the art of all street why should that to force from fleece the law i was completely unjust economic demands well a different story but
a similar kind of vein my pencils and i only want to use the word tyranny towards foreign states u.s. secretary of state might pompei o branded north korea's leader a tyrant but when pressed stop short using that same label for egypt's president. there's a difference to mung leaders you might call them tie or you might call them authoritarian but but there's a fundamental difference and therefore a fundamental difference in the way the united states should respond there you have it dictators worldwide now is a good time to order someone to take notes it isn't about how many innocents you kill how repressive you are or how much you steal you'll be relieved to hear no no it's all about how many favors you do for america it's a great honor to have the crown prince with us of saudi arabia has been. a very great friend and a big purchaser of equipment and lots of other things and one of the biggest investments of the united states is there are i guess it's your big investment is
buying stock in companies and various other things in the united states and creating jobs and all known to be in the world's behaving capital arguably the most massaging istic nation on earth led by kings to win elects a nation maya in alleged war crimes and atrocities in neighboring yemen all forgiven if you buy enough american guns contrast saudi arabia with cuba for example a whole lot less sexism mudda war but also not enough trade deals with the us verdict tyrants for decades cuba has tried to create client states across our region. well normal countries export goods. cuba exports tyranny and strong arm tactics it's the same story for every government foolish enough to ignore america's interests those who would otherwise be called strong leaders become
tyrants because madeira is a dictator with no legitimate claim power rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime the level of corruption wealth among or a leader shows that iran is run by something that resembles the mafia more than a government is another friend the united arab emirates ruled by monarchs with the opposition kept on the verge of extinction thanks to a local phenomenon where activists tend to magically disappear says human rights watch the u.a.e. is a good friend of america the u.a.e. is only one of three countries and the only arab nation to participate with the u.s. in six coalition actions over the last twenty years afghanistan libya somalia bosnia kosovo the one nine hundred ninety gulf war and the fight against isis the rwanda
another pow ruled by paul kagame for twenty years now an experienced talented dictator and whom says h r w many opposition figures have gotten themselves killed incarcerated exiled or tortured very effective it shutting people up mr president to you mr vice president you have shown great vision in your efforts to create a single nation in which all citizens can live freely in securely. the thing with american interests is that their american interests america benefits and the other guy well at least he doesn't get labeled as a tyrant and gets a pass on all the dictator wish things he wants to do ask the people of zealot where the us propped up a brutal murder mbutu says a second who was in power for more than thirty years you.
can see. we can go on and on but you get the gist it's simple and effective message to everyone with a radical tastes you do what's good for america you serve american interests buy guns stocks political favor and you can quite literally get away with murder. it is ten fifty two the morning moscow time says a length of a previous waking up good morning around the world have a good day break donald trump calls out the miller report on the russian collusion as an attempted coup now he's using those words i'm kevin o. and this is the international.

and only boom. in france a new study has shown a nebular of anonymous twitter accounts being used to forward the ideas of the french president and his ruling party including the promotion of candidates for european elections that's despite strict legislation against fake needs an anonymous account announced by my home across the course at the beginning of the year he's got a story. president macro hates fake news and the manipulation of social networks to protect our democracy is we have to fight against the ever growing virus of fake news that it's a referendum that has been manipulated manipulated from the exterior by a lot of what we call fake news you have an account in the bahamas no i don't have an account in the bahamas i may regret it but that is an example of what we've
talked about it is typical of what we call fake news in the news i've decided that we will change our legal arsenal to protect a democratic life from fake news and new buildings soon be drafted to that effect in particular he likes to point the finger at russia russian boats and anyone considered to be a russell file his government is even passed strict laws to combat the manipulation of information but now it seems his party lover public amash has been cool with his hand in the cookie jar and investigation discovered that lover public on march attempted to manipulate twitter traffic ahead of its meeting of its top candidates in next month's european elections it points to cost of accounts tweeting and retreating well above the average take this account opened in february two thousand
and seventeen but has broadcast nearly fifty four thousand tweets also me of airline doesn't even seem to remember her name that could suggest that the account isn't only one person but is actually run by multiple people the study found that this could also be the case with many other accounts in the mac or in this sphere saying they're being used seven days a week from seven am until midnight did someone mention a troll factory. there are according to research is. over four and a half thousand accounts of this kind and they generated sixty eight percent at the retreats ahead of that meeting by luck republican marks top candidate this study described that as a demonstration of strength the goal being in the logic of pure propaganda the creation of a mass effect if we believe the research sparty is doing more than just
clamping down on nasty social media content he's manipulating it for his so they show that even ski r.t. paris. donald trump the investigation into russian interference in the twenty sixteen presidential election describing it as an attempted coup against. it was it illegal investigation it was started illegally everything about it which brought you here every single thing about it there were thirty. people you looked at me told me you look at least peters brought these people. and this was a relative who this is this is said to take out of the president trump statement comes the same day as attorney general william testify before the u.s. senate barklay during the hearings that spying by u.s.
intelligence agencies was carried out against trump's campaign but well for the same reason we're worried about foreign influence in elections we want to make sure that. during a lecture i think spying on a political campaign is a big deal so you're not you're not suggesting now that spine occurred because you could i think there was a spying did occur yes i think spying did occur independent analysts to laura told us president trump has good reason to think the mulla probe was launched to undermine him. but there's some basis to what he said i mean there was a century there was without doubt now an attempt to undermine and weaken and if not overthrow him for preachments and elect a president who we may not to still may not like and that is something more dangerous them even trump so he has a basis to say although he did he did he does trend towards hyperbole that there was an attempt to undermine him and to overthrow him in
a sense if they had succeeded but unfortunately for them for the f.b.i. and the others involved in this the really best a geisha turned up empty there was no there there and as peter struck that one of the f.b.i. agents involved in this mass said in one of his text messages to be true elisa page was working for a bridge apartment as well so of the agency so there was an attempt to do this trump is going to make what he can out of this obviously for political reasons so i wouldn't go into that kickstand of rhetoric but i think he has some he has some basis to say this yes. vote on tuesday in this general election starts thursday with the number of eligible voters making of almost one seventh of the entire population of the world there's a brief on it some nine hundred million voters and more than a million polling stations across india are set to vote in seven stages which will take place over a month although thousands of parties are registered to compete in the elections the main battle seems to be between the two alliances one of the incumbent prime minister and the renda modi and the other of raul gandhi that name sounds familiar
ten twenty four the morning here in moscow this is new in for you know speculation growing over the fate of sudanese president omar al bashir the country's media this morning saying he could be it but to relinquish power or is about to be removed by the military after thirty years of rule the military expected to make a statement in the coming hours partly it is imminent we're across it this comes after months of massive anti-government protests demanding up and she's out of state at least twenty two people have been killed in protests in the capital khartoum since the weekend they started in december as rallies against spiraling costs will be crossed. for now that's the way some of the main world news stories are shaping up so far this thursday in moscow is kevin owen saying thanks ever so
