it is. also to the pacific as this is the last stop at the push and i was full force as. the stories it showed the week has gone the first of a summit between the north korea's kim jong un boosted by last fall relations outlook to remove nuclear capabilities from the korean peninsula. russian national jailed in the us for failing to register as a foreign agent but a lawyer says she's a victim of the current political climate in washington. a lot of. activities in the us were illegal. in and of themselves but she got caught up in this and she rushes hysteria. and saudi arabia comes under fire from the un and
human rights organizations for a mass execution with concerns that the charges against the thirty seven mostly shia men who were trumped up. just turned ten am sunday morning here in moscow live from russia around the world to you wherever you are watching this morning starting to national with me it's obvious review of the week on the big stories we brought you over the last seven days first then from a nuclear free north korea to bilateral relations vladimir putin and kim jong un met for the first time on thursday russia's far eastern city of volleyball stock hosted the summit and after more than two hours of face to face talks the leaders expressed their willingness to further develop relations and tackle the situation on the korean peninsula. yes. we just had a fairly full right one two one conversation we managed to talk about the history
of our bilateral relations and about the present day and the prospects of developing those relations but of course we also talked about the situation on the korean peninsula and exchanged views on what needs to be done to improve the situation in the audience mr president we have just had to authority exchange of opinions face to face on all of this of mutual importance and i think you know the great times we are. in the know agreements are actually signed it seems the leaders had a productive time in the two exchange sold as a symbol of the mutual respect between nations and they're up to the talks the lavished in a north korean state media ready saying kim is ready for more talks to this time in pyongyang and if you try and kill it was following the volleyball stock summit for us.
literally minutes after the north korean supreme leader got inside his limo we were given the opportunity to come closer to his armored train. so unfortunately i won't be able to show you or see for myself any of the extraordinary facilities inside that tray that was used by cam john jones father i was trying to look through the window but obviously no chances and the security guards are watching. carefully to make sure that we don't touch it have already been told off by the inside there are high tech communication facilities several
conference room as well as luxury living quarters in the middle of the train there's a special room for him john rooms wife and white next to it two separate cards for body guards there are two restaurants one is for the supreme leader himself and the second one is for the entire delegation there's even a special section for the leaders limo and they're the one that we saw on the station square that massive armored vehicles can actually fit into one of those.
well it turns out that in a sense john is counting on vladimir putin as a kind of a middleman in delivering his messages to the rest of the world leadership by the way mr putin's next destination is beijing there you have it but it looks like chairman kim is hoping that his message will get all the way to washington through russia as well it's a. german king also read directly to tell the us about his position and about the questions he has in connection with the situation on the korean peninsula we also found out that the russian leader as confident that pianka yang's essential. term national security guarantees guarantees for sovereignty and when it comes to
dealing korea's ation according to mr putin the only way forward is through these kind of guarantees i would like to remind you that for years russia's peace road map was about mutual concessions from both sides to out of north korea on the one hand and south korea and allies on the other and china is backing this plan to well the russian president believes that four years every step forward made by washington was followed by two steps backwards. but what does building measures to be taken which could have been taken back in two thousand and five when the u.s. and north korea came to an agreement the way they later on for some reason the american partners thought this was no it's enough that they needed to add something to this agreement that's what north korea with drew from the treaty if you're making a step forward two steps back and you will never succeed. after what we heard on
thursday it is definitely fair to say that there is a lot of potential in kim putin and by the way the president of south korea said that this summit in flat of all stocks should act as a springboard for further top ranked diplomacy between washington and pyongyang so chairman kim has been enjoying contacts with the most powerful politicians on this planet his two historic summits with the american president donald trump followed by one with a lot of our putting and it looks like mr cameron knows what he's doing when he's playing his geo political game an expert we spoke to says the summits part of the key mediation role that moscow complained the korean peninsula. or. it looks like now he tried to see someone else to help korea out in between recent by
a letter or a meeting between north korea and the us he was so sure that he can lead the meeting between the u.s. and north korea but now he is sick somehow for put inside here essentially achieved new election and or so now he can have a spot lies from the international community by playing the role for the korea over the korean peninsula as a peacemaker so it would be. for today's summit currently now south korea having air exercises rivero u.s. and south korea cannot be free from u.s. pressure because of a sense for south korea it could be a good to have russia if russia can play the right role as a mediator because for south korea itself it could be a little bit tricky to work in between a u.s. and north korea.
another big story the russian notion rebooted it sentenced to eighteen months in prison in the united states after she pleaded guilty to conspiring to register foreign agent thirty rolls also to try to influence the national rifle association and other conservative groups in the u.s. so american political figures are suspected of being involved with these two let's just take a recoat for a minute burka her story. i have reasons to if she's not the main goal of the circumstances she had to put in was to break the will of the forces to something she might not have done.
so you are trying to save face but we grabbed her seized her we're put her behind bars for sure but there is nothing they can charge her wish that you and to avoid looking ridiculous they sentenced her to eighteen months to just to show that she is guilty of something. more or less a corresponding kellam open reported from new york city in the week. those who were in the court room heard maria brought in to give quite an emotional speech prior to her sentence being handed down she talked about how she came to the united states not as an agent or an operative but with purely good intentions and what a nightmare her family has been through this is some of what maria book in a said to the court my parents discovers my arrest on the morning news they're
washed in the rural hollows in a savior and i love them dearly but i harm the morally and financially they're suffering from all of that i destroyed my own life as well i came to the united states not under any orders but with who and now nothing remains but penitence now the prosecutors in the d.c. court room argued that somehow maria book has activities with the now. tional rifle association had somehow harmed the political process of the united states significantly they argued that by being an unregistered lobbyist and working behalf on behalf of the russian government inside the national rifle association that she was in severe violation of u.s. law and had somehow harmed the u.s. political system and done a great deal of damage now the judge did then hand down a sentence of eighteen months in federal prison now nine months of that will be time served that will be the time that she's been held since she was initially
arrested so only nine months remaining in federal prison and then after that time she will be deported from the united states back to russia now what's interesting is that maria bhutto was swept up in the aftermath of the twenty sixteen u.s. presidential elections in which talk of russian agents and russian meddling and russian subversion seemed to be quite widespread there was quite an atmosphere of fear and in that atmosphere she was swept up and it appears that now after months of being detained after quite a bit of time in which it was it was reported that she was held in solitary confinement in rather harsh conditions that she now has nine more months to serve in u.s. federal custody before she will be allowed to return home to her family so people are seeing this is kind of a conclusion to the case as at this point her lawyers are saying they will not appeal this verdict well we spoke to group the case and the dangerous precedent he
believes it could say. i think it's impossible to separate from from the politics and i think that there is a an underlying crime that he pled guilty to which you can make out under u.s. law but i think the notion that this would have been investigated or an arrest would have been made for a typical foreign national who wasn't russian and wasn't in the car environment where in the u.s. i think that it's almost impossible to to believe that southern politics has a lot to do with the atmosphere of the case and it's one of those things where if the elements of the crime are there they were selectively enforced in the sense and so i think it's hard to argue. the charges unregistered agent it's not foreign it's not secret agent it's not intelligence agent it literally is just doing something for someone else as being their agent none of maria maria's activities in
the u.s. were illegal in and of themselves so there's no classified information there's no political sensitive kind of information given she was not paid by by the russian federation her she was supported by americans while she was here financially but she got caught up in this and she rushes hysteria. i would fear that other countries will start applying the same standards and saying that any american who went abroad to another country and was involved in civil society organizations and social and met people and networks that's really all we're talking about doing are talking about anything more serious than that and reported back on those activities some in the u.s. so i think it's very dangerous because if other countries adopt the same as you're going to get it's head for tat situation with countries grabbing civilians of other countries as leverage or for other reasons and i think it's a bad idea is
a very good one for me kevin right ahead very soon more of the news that made the headlines for most of this last week human rights groups plus saudi arabia off the execution of dozens of prisoners convicted of terror and violent crimes just one of the stories after this break. the people doing those manufacturing jobs also start to innovate because that's where the innovation happens on the factory floor so the fact this war's been moved to china as you point out the b.t.l. the chinese we've moved all of our jobs manufacturing over china now all the innovations in china so we don't it's not it's not created in california built in china is going to be created in china built in china.
but opposes which to. put themselves on the line they did accept the reject. so when you want to express what you. want to listen. to going for us this is what the three of the four people. i'm interested in the ones. first of all. again good morning one woman's been killed and three of the people wounded including a rabbi in a shooting at a synagogue sent to go in california police have detained a nineteen year old man in connection with the incident which took place during
a service to mark the jewish holiday of passover the suspect reportedly posted ninety semitic message online before the authorities are investigating with the instant was a hate crime this all comes out of the six months of the most devastating attack on the jewish community in recent american history when eleven would killed another truss of the pits the synagogue where it's a place has responded to the latest instance say the violence must end human rights lawyer believes sits a dangerous time to be a member of a minority group right now in america. from pittsburgh i'm in pittsburgh now i was here when the synagogue was attacked here in pittsburgh this looks like a very similar incident and it's very clear that these people were attacked because they were jewish and so i believe this is a racism in general which includes you know my semitism. has a very large presence in america i think you know it's something america has struggled with for you know a long time it's
a very dangerous time in this country to be in any racial or ethnic minority any now that's just a fact i mean you see a world that's very much on fire at the moment in which racial and religious and ethnic tensions are high. international human rights groups have condemned a series of executions and. rabia this week thirty seven men reportedly mostly from the muslim shia minority were killed on terror and violence related charges when body was even stronger up in public following his execution human rights watch states these killings mark alarming escalation in the use of the death penalty in the country it also described the punishment as grotesque and expressed concern that those punished might not have received a fair trial a senior correspondent of reports view things so as much fear into the hearts of your own people as mass executions the men were executed
for adopting terrorists and extremists thinking and performing terrorists else to corrupt and destabilize security allegedly among their crimes was this respect towards authority some of them can you believe that like the king protested against him so serious with their crimes that one of those executed was also crucified yes crucified in two thousand and nineteen his body strung up for all to see for all to fear. today's mass execution is a chilling demonstration of the saudi arabia no authority and callous disregard for human life it is also yet another gruesome indication of how the death penalty is being used as a political tool to crush dissent from within the country's shia minority in fact almost half of those killed were executed after taking part in pro-democracy
protests see the arab spring didn't skirt saudi arabia the shia minority rose up they wanted change better fairer life the king obviously thought they wanted too much. one of those executed by the way was sixteen years old at the time of his arrest attending a protest apparently he was still a kid now is an example you wouldn't believe how creative the saudis are when it comes to killing prisoners in fact the current king began his reign by staging
a massive execution forty seven people behaved it shot for crimes that included disobey and saudi rulers biggest blood show since the nine hundred eighty s. who said fictions and common peaked in two thousand and twelve one five people were strung up paralysis reportedly is also in a judge's arsenal seriously they can sentence a person to be paralyzed as punishment roots back to a four thousand year old law or that someone wrote on a stone pillar to throw a tooth. and literally in this case a knife or and i. took that stone very seriously in two thousand and five a court in saudi arabia ordered a migrants i gagged out as punishment for getting into a fight and few taishan also a favorite especially for theft chopping off people's arms and feet stealing
and of course stoning reserved for crimes like being too friendly with the opposite sex what can you say you want to cherry on top saudi arabia's on the un human rights council what a world more senior correspondent reporting there today will reduce defended its actions it will not hesitate to punish anyone threatening the security and stability of the kingdom but the spokesperson for the gulf institute for democracy and human rights claims the saudi justice system often fabricates judges. it's not the first time which so very be you that if you know t. took clannish prisoners of conscience who hold dared to spoke out about the human rights violations in the country we've not just dad there i think and five of the of the executive people you all where really charged by terrorist leader is implanted we don't trust. i really enjoyed issue system we don't trust how did
and how did the saudi authorities handle their magic especially against the british theirs who took to the streets to demand rights and freedoms and who spoke out about what was happening in the country. as most of the gulf kingdoms saudi arabia uses is to did you choose to step to fabricate the charges against their dissidents especially against the activists who spoke out or who lose their source in media outlets or rules participated in demonstrations there is a taboo in the gulf kingdom especially in saudi arabia no one is a lone just about what's happening in the country or says a small selection of some of the big stories we covered of the last seven days now finally before we go from now some sad news to us this weekend for you his loyal viewers as well bart chilton our colleague and host of artes financial show boo busters passed away suddenly just three days before his fifty ninth birthday but
dynamism and passion for business greatly enriched the program we brought you which is one of most popular shows on r.t. america we're delighted to say before he joined the r.t. family of stations but was commissioner at the u.s. commodity futures trading commission he's also worked on multiple local federal presidential campaigns but friends and colleagues have described him as strong and dignified and say he treated everyone with respect to the host and political commentator steve malzberg remembers the lively banter they share. i think that i might have been i'm the last show that he did which was several weeks ago and you know we had we had our usual fun on the air he always like to make. some kind a little joke in the introduction or at the door or inject a little you more into it and it was just such a pleasure to talk to him all the time and i'd that's that's what i'm going to miss most of all is is is chatting with him and and you know him being
a part of my daily routine of my life in and he being allowed to be in some way a part of his and i'm sure boom bust will go on i know that that's what bart would want. is just as soon as someone diligent to pursue him as i live he he has a good feel for them. lead them. through the holiday need. like yes. we have many things in the smiles and this is it well
for everyone and why some people's wants to take our things all the power just for themselves only he says it is the mother. of the world with. what holds. just to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and. or somehow want to. have to like the press this is what before three of them all can't be good that. interested always in the waters of. the ship.
they can come and blow our brains out at any given time if we can't really do anything actually america is the only country in the world where you can kill people outside of war and legally get away with. all of the fire crawls still birria all the troubled history fail the point it's hollow fly to k.k.k. exists because america wants it to exist they are the biggest terrorist group to ever operate in this country and they're dead to me they're worse off than the people who destroyed the world trade centers are those growth. and we don't know what facebook's aims are in fact facebook doesn't know what its
aims are because it's going to be the sum total of all the people who are working on these algorithms a whistleblower someone who used to work for facebook came forward last year and said i was one of the news curators at facebook a bunch of us eased to sit around every day and we used to remove stories from the news feed that were too conservative and now and then we inject a story that we first saw it was really cool. the facebook founder. zuckerberg says he's committed to giving everyone a voice from responding to an allegation that facebook edits conservative views out of its trending topics they can suppress certain types of results based on what they think you should be seeing based on what your followers are presenting now a new report claims that according to a former facebook employee the social media mega company sometimes ignores what is actually trending among its billion users if the story originated from
a conservative news source or if it's a topic causing buzz among conservatives. facebook cosily manipulates or users they do it by the things that they insert into the news feeds they do it by the types of posts they allow their users to see and the fact that they actually decided to do psychological experiments on the users is something that i think a lot of people need to really fully understand and they were doing it based upon the fact that different things that people posted they want to see how other people would react to it. on how to watch why your facebook friends posts can have a direct effect on your mood new research shows the more negative post you see the more negative you could become. so if for example let's say somebody wanted to post something that was on the news feed that was a very negative story they wanted to see how their users would react via their likes by their statements for their posts and they would show people who already
had a predilection to maybe having some depression or maybe having some other issues in their lives and they can figure that out based upon your like space upon your connections based upon where you're going and so what they want to do is take that information and then use it to basically weaponize this information against their users so that way their users could see different things that may affect their mood and may affect how they interact with others and that's something that is highly unethical it appears that some young people may have been so affected by this. that they may have done harm to themselves based upon what they saw on their facebook feed and it was all because it is experiments do things that we have no standing with facebook we're not citizens of facebook we have no blood on facebook it's not a democracy and this this process is not a way we can design the future we can't rely on this single company to invent our digital future.
