1:00 am
the long awaited man reporting from russia collusions about today and there's already a storm brewing in the democratic camp over it. struck by a group to congress for refusing to end america's support for the saudi led intervention in yemen coming up to we hear what people in new york think of the president's veto. that politicians think it's terrible. and indigenous people in australia as northern territory take anger over fracking a right to parliament there. is a whole range of risk factors that's one of the problems he. really concerned about
1:01 am
is the war that could be directly impacted in the short term by this. morning live from russia this is our international with me kevin i mean just here in moscow now this morning and first in the headlines it's more detail than the heavily redacted version of the report on the trump russia collusion is due to be released thursday it brings to a close a two year investigation into alleged russian links to the campaign in the twenty sixteen presidential election last month a summary of the report said there was no evidence to suggest conspired with moscow but i wasn't enough the democrats next then this warning as a potential reports even the release of this full document it seems won't put the accusation to bed. it was clear almost immediately that u.s. attorney general william barr wouldn't get away with just
1:02 am
a letter to congress when the trump ating army saw or heard the words no collusion all they wanted was the full molar papers the big days arrived kind of i'll remind you of how exactly mr barr gave the ok i will be in a position to move forward expeditiously in determining what can be released in light of. regulations and department to policies it looks like quite a few lines will be redacted william barton came up with four specific categories to be blacked out let's whip through those you won't see anything known as grand jury material info that could affect on go in legal cases data that could damage the privacy or interests of third parties and finally intelligence gathering sources and methods the left wings grip on the idea that donald trump obstructed
1:03 am
justice is so tight that perhaps all that's left visible in the moeller report won't be enough for them anyway remember rachel maddow questioned blitz last month what attorney general william barr has just given to congress really it does raise a lot of questions that we never thought we would be asking i think about how this investigation is being resolved i bet she'll have many more after thursday's release the good news for the russia gaiters in the bar letter was the part that said the russians still tried to interfere even without any kind of collusion the special counsel's investigation to determine that there were two main russian efforts to influence the twenty sixteen election and obviously in that bar baby memo there was no room for evidence of all the shady dealings the. team has already triggered legal action against a russian company supposedly
1:04 am
a meddling force without explaining to the firm's lawyers what they're using as proof for the indictment why is that info is too sensitive to be given out does that ring a bell what if the russians get hold of it plus nobody ever properly explained how it was found that russia hacked the democrat servers if investigators didn't get access to the actual d.n.c. hardware there will be those who want to get answers to questions way off rachel maddow is list but remember the rules sensitive almost certainly means redacted the democrats have already set it up to to dispute. the report based on the redactions which is really kind of another cheap factor in their part because obviously there will be some redactions their intelligence sources and methods that are involved in the report but the protection of people who participated in the investigation who are not under any kind of suspicion democrats will use that to say there's still
1:05 am
something there they're not going to be satisfied because they're not really interested in the truth they're interested in making political points from it so even if there is proving that there is no collusion and no obstruction that central thesis remains that somehow trump owes his presidency to the russians and that's a fundamental flaw that hasn't been challenged and i don't think in the lives report pointed out to the president if you don't address it head on you're not going to be exonerated. by post at the morning no moscow time other news today donald trump has refused to end america's support for the saudi led intervention in the yemen is the headline the united states provides billions of dollars of arms sales to the kingdom's coalition which carries as we've often fall of here as strikes against toothy rebels it's been four years now of intense fighting in yemen has created what has been described as the world's worst humanitarian crisis with
1:06 am
more when this is head think caleb maupin this got reaction next. president donald trump was elected on promises of ending u.s. involvement in the wars around the world great nations do not fight endless wars. greg thanks. but he's not particularly came in stopping the u.s. help to saudi arabia in its deadly campaign against yemen. i am returning here with without my approval a joint resolution that proposed to direct the president to remove united states armed forces from his still it sees in were affecting the republic of yemen was so it's an exceptions probably used his presidential power to shoot down a resolution from congress and so on to end the u.s. involvement in the four year war since twenty fifteen the saudi led coalition along
1:07 am
with the united states has been waging a deadly campaign against rebels and their allies in yemen what more in march saudi arabia pledged a billion dollars to yemen while denying any culpability in the humanitarian crisis there pressure to end u.s. support escalated after the killing of jamal khashoggi a saudi journalist inside of riyadh embassy in turkey the united states will no longer participate in the saudi led. in the saudi led intervention in yemen which has caused the worst humanitarian crisis on earth limiting americans engagement in this war which is going on far too long we all agree but these cross party appeals fell on deaf ears barely denting trumps love for his favorite middle eastern monarchs saudi arabia and i get along great with all of them they buy apartments for me they spend forty million sixty million of my
1:08 am
supposed to dislike them i like them very much but to be fair trump is certainly not the first us president to lavish his affection on to the kingdom's rulers the united states and saudi arabia is of strong important friendship and he knows and i know that. the fact that he has chosen to take this first visit. to the united states is indicative of friendship between the united states and saudi arabia but where do the american people stand they were. want to continue the u.s. alliance with saudi arabia it's terrible i'm against it for the u.s. to have a stands in financial support for such conflicts kind of says something that i'm not sure they really want to betray the message there's a lot of civilians that are paying the price for games that politicians and play i was a saloon flues with the saudis i will be surprise about it is
1:09 am
a group does house a saudi works the u.s. relationship with saudi arabia boils down to billions of dollars in oil imports and weapons sales it's long been fundamental to u.s. foreign policy when it comes to the middle east region however now in the era of trump it seems pretty clear that certain voices are getting pretty sick of it caleb mop and r.t. new york. international charity the no we general council says stone will trump veto will only mean more suffering and death. the united states has an obligation as one of the leading nations and being a main supporter of the nation but also as one of the top donors of the yemeni humanitarian response it has a responsibility to make sure that the vivian's are protected the reality is otherwise we see that the u.s. is not holding this out do not go audition in any way. for the attacks on civilians
1:10 am
we are talking about the disproportionate. supports why do night and stage towards one party that it's going to take that is the cell that's for edition moves like this one that as mr saddam. was last had in any way in increasing confidence on the ground and then leading people to feel. that this just accept their ratings if that's something more and more weapons them even more that yemen if there is. a group of anti fracking protesters in australia have come up with a novel way to get their message across. we got money to listen wrecking our country i'm putting i want to.
1:11 am
use it when we really need is this had them killing. well we've covered the story for years run the world but right now we're focusing on a strain critics say fracking has got a huge impact on the environment including possible earthquakes because of the high pressure used to extract the oil in the gas from the rock deep below it also increases the risk of oil spills and pollution some who because that can lead to various health problems a strain is northern territory announced a moratorium on fracking back in september twenty sixth but that's changed now that ban was lifted last year with the government investing over eight million dollars now to accelerate the industry again they say quote it's going to create thousands of jobs and help the country's economy however environmentalist graeme sawyer maybe obviously has significant doubts about those claims. there's a whole range of respect is and that's one of the problems the additional owners are really concerned about is that the water that could be directly impacted in the
1:12 am
short term by this this fracking not only threatens their livelihood and their ability to drink water it also threatens their cultural knowledge and information and their cultural practice but the northern territory government is in pretty bad style that a lot of its economy and so the thinking that might be able to use this is a way to. increase activity but the evidence would suggest other was the jobs question is really an interesting one because research out of coins way show that for every ten jobs they created as a threat. they lost twenty four jobs out of districts in the area so the some really big questions of has to be answered around those things as well as the environmental concerns. as for other world smalling a senior south african politicians been branded a racist for urging black voters not to waste their ballots on white candidates for the ruling a.n.c. party secretary general denies claims of racism. don't ever vote for
1:13 am
a white person will never change the lives of black people they have oppressed us our main hope is the black vote the democratic alliance represents the white interest the elite and the privileged those comments of deeply angered party veterans who describe his remarks as inappropriate the governments have been at pains to fight discrimination by launching a national action plan a deed to combat rising racism white people currently make up only just but nine percent of south africa's population but they owe more than seventy percent of private farmland that's seen as an increasing number of calls than from the black community to redistribute the country's wealth to get reaction from a former anti-apartheid activist and also the president of the black first land first party. my people are the beneficiaries of racism all of the way that there were liberals what i do even communists in south africa are white people benefited ecology to benefit thirty five thousand white families own eighty percent of the land they will not shed its lead with us they still maintaining that part of it
1:14 am
hold on the economy so why would we not have a blacks only look as asian fighting for black liberation why would any black person vote what to man in that position who has the ability and he's fingertips the ability to hope try and mean once this happens let's not try to do it edges destroying even roll destroying it further and that is the saddest thing because that is not the opinion of the majority in this country i was interested during the party for having brought up two black children living in my home at a time when it wasn't allowed and i think one feel strongly enough about. one turn over power everything you can to oscillate it into watch and black you cannot do it it's a four to the morning here in moscow he wants to run the world good morning for me kevin zero in this is our international quick break coming up the stories we're
1:15 am
talking about when we come back. facebook's new rules get the thumbs down from brussels over the might hit upcoming elections. you know we talk from time to time about the casino good luck about the trend in technology and government to enslave the global population behind the devices and to be consigned to life of clicking on ads for scooby snacks and the second you stop clicking on those ads you die and you get to platform get off the grid and. just pay so send to the chrome the carrier asked. what. you put themselves on the line to get except the reject.
1:16 am
so when you want to be president and you. want to it's. actually going to be prose that's what before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters of my. question. my body told me that you are belong with the board if my thoughts my mind was that i belonged with the girls. under the surgery starts to be a very popular. person doctor. i was born a male had a sex change when i was thirty years old. i've now been living as a woman for twenty eight years and i fully regret this. my problem should have gone away from by now but they hadn't so these surgeries are nothing more than plastic
1:17 am
surgery i've had several female to male friends and you look at it and you just go god you paid for that it's horrible nobody can change genders. it's impossible. is delusional it's a mental illness. this is now one of my bones from flesh of my flesh she shall be called woman for she was taken out. this is out international reporting from a coven now and so next the european union slammed facebook for its new advertising policy at a parliamentary elections in the block and a letter to the social media giant brussels expressed concerns the new rules could
1:18 am
generate huge political consequences facebook's policy would prevent european political actors from using facebook facebook messenger and instagram for the e.u. wide paid communication campaigns this policy would put each political actors at the same level as foreign entities attempting to interfere in the e.u. elections so a bit more detail under these new rules facebook applies more rigorous checks on its advertisers it also imposes geographical limits requiring registration in the country where the odds are to be purchased which goes against the whole idea of a pan e.u. political campaigning in the first place facebook however justified his actions saying its new policy is a safeguard against foreign interference. we wait the different risks and concluded that the right solution to help best guard against foreign interference is to only allow people to run advertisement in and e.u. country if they have passed an authorization process could mean there are
1:19 am
a result in that same country the chairman of the bow group think tank told us facebook has forgotten about its initial purpose and goals. this started because there were allegations that foreign parties were influencing. elections in other parts of the world now i think almost all of those allegations of been disproved that what what facebook have done is they've they've looked at the facts that there's been a huge uproar. the amount of data they've been collecting on their own uses and rather than restricting themselves which is what they should have been doing they've restricted the uses which seems an entirely wrong headed approach for small organizations and for individuals that just want to comment on the political discourse it's going to get harder and harder and harder so big players will be able to comply with the new regulations but smaller players won't and i think that's ultimately injurious to the platform injurious to debates and injurious to
1:20 am
democracy that's not how it should be and facebook ultimately began as a peer to peer a grassroots network essentially and i think if it strays away from that and it just becomes another big corporation then something else will take its place. u.s. national security advisor john bolton has announced new sanctions on cuba including restrictions for americans visiting that caribbean island based on whether they have relatives there. today we are also announcing five additions to the cuba restricted list which prohibits direct financial transactions with entities tied to cuba's military intelligence and security services and personnel we are also announcing that the department of the treasury will implement further regulatory changes to restrict non-family travel to cuba bolton speech follows washington's lifting of a long standing by and on lawsuits being taken against foreign companies in cuba
1:21 am
but that's a decision that could have a major impact on the e.u. about his biggest trading partner at a time when transatlantic relations are already stretched the u.s. steps intended to pressure cuba into giving up support for venezuela's president nicolas maduro an expert on latin america we spoke to says washington's move could backfire. but this is one more effort completely cross-tree. trump administration attempting to push cuba as well as nicaragua and the country are those attempting significant change or sovereignty back it is meant as a punishment and will threat to other countries around the world it's meant to as a threat to the e.u. in terms of doing any business with cuba or when. is it going to change anything in cuba now anything in burma as well or is it illegal yes. a buyer
1:22 am

1:25 am
we came here where did you work before you came here when you live. in many us states capital punishment is still practiced convicted prisoners can spend years waiting for execution but most of the time the victims' families they are very much in favor the death penalty there are some people because of what they did have given up their rights as live among us some even proven innocent doctor years on death row but how many more exonerations is it going to take before we as a society realize that this is not working and we actually do something about. even soon this is a conditional is to keep it to plan as i live eat here give yourself and.
1:26 am
leave no. you need. a deed. to be done. and we have many things in this world this is an e-mail for everyone and why some people's wants to take our things all the power just for themselves and to do this thing or that in the i'm sure will. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy to confront case in let it be an arms race in his own very dramatic development that only i'm
