to get out. the plane took off just after 6 pm local time and was heading for the city of mormons in northwest russia just under 20 minutes later the pilots alerted air traffic control they were returning to sure many of us witnesses later said the aircraft had been struck by lightning at half past 6 it mean emergency landing but hit the runway hard bursting into flames as it bounced along the tarmac it was quickly consumed by the fire which claimed the lives of dozens of people trapped inside 78 people were on board at the time of the crash more than half of the
been hailed as a hero after trying to open the rear exit door to let passengers escape before driving them towards the front i guess that our video agency ruptly interviewed his mother who still cannot believe her son will never return home. stolidly game and she'd already saved one person a man was drowning in crimea he was choking. on a 15 but he tried to assure us he didn't consider it a big deal it was just a thing you have to do he always thought the people should help others do good deeds he didn't offend anyone he spoke to people with respect she was simply kind to people. he was did everything that he has enough money so the family would have enough x. that none of us needed anything. else because they had the secret community even now i just don't believe he's not here i just don't believe it.
every 2nd i think he'll come home soon he'll be with us. the plane's flight data and cockpit voice recorders have been recovered and are being analyzed the wreckage of the plane has been removed for forensic examination investigators are looking into reports the causes of the tragedy pilot error system of function and bad weather. russian foreign minister sergei lavrov and u.s. secretary of state mike pompei out of hell talks on the crisis in venezuela it happened on the sidelines of an arctic council meeting in finland and comes after an alleged coup attempt was thwarted in the latin american country is expected to visit the russian city of sochi on may 14th to continue the discussion among the issues addressed during the following talks was the possibility of u.s. military action in venezuela trying go reports. the number
one diplomats of america and russia have finally met and we were hoping to understand if there is at least a slight chance that moscow and washington could be on the same page when it comes to venice well as well as. the pale didn't speak to journalists at all after this here in finland but when. i talked to the media he thought it wasn't a good idea to shed light on any of the details pretty much but he did respond to my question about mike barrows statement from this weekend that russia must get out of venezuela and also about the possibility of cool sam intervening militarily when his father loose. comes in to do this and we tried not to concentrate on those statements which are publicly discussed because they are being affected by many factors the don't have anything to do was real politics we
concentrated on the real politics incentives from my contacts with the u.s. american and european colleagues i don't see any suppose this move to reaction and media at the after this i asked the russian foreign minister if that included american diplomats and to that he simply answered yes but the real question right now is though whether that is really the case because many times we've heard from the most high ranking officials in america the phrase all options are on the table including the military one and when secretary of state public pale was heading to europe the journalists were reporting that on the plane he said that nicolas maduro can no longer be in charge of this country he believes he is simply not able to do that even though he is the leader of the country and i can tell you that the
government in venezuela understands that they could end up having to brace for the worst case scenario just listen to what their foreign minister said when he was in the russian capital on sunday but it but oh but what good is a real. for all scenarios the 1st includes diplomacy dialogue and peace if the u.s. prefers the military we are ready to resist we have an army police people and we are ready to destroy any army no matter how powerful it is so essentially the most influential powers on the opposite sides here the government at any cost dural and the self-proclaimed president one why do so are finally in touch on this president donald trump out spoken to president fly out of our porton the top diplomats have met but it is unclear whether that would still lead to a peaceful resolution of this longstanding venezuelan crisis.
this week iran announced it would no longer honor all of its commitments under the historic $2015.00 nuclear agreement it came precisely one year after the u.s. in a lot early pulled out of the deal something that has hit tehran's economy hard and heightened international tensions iran is now threatening to keep access enrich uranium stocks in the country rather than sell them abroad they're on has also given the pact signatories 2 months to ensure their upholding their side of the deal or it will resume production of more highly enriched uranium the move met with a mixed reaction from europe and a new round of sanctions from washington d.c. . the united states wanted to pull out of the g c p a way in order to make iran withdraw from the deal the day after so the u.s. would be able to refer the case to the u.n. security council that sought to ease the burden on the shoulders of the u.s. to redouble and russia to pressure iran iran did not fall into this trap. we have continued to see every that leads us to believe that there's escalation
that may be taking place so we're taking all the appropriate actions both from a security perspective and well as. our ability to make sure that the president has a wide range of options and they've made this up that should actually take place what we've been trying to do is to give. iran to be him like a normal nation. unfortunately this is typical of our american colleagues during my meeting with u.s. secretary of state mike some people in finland on monday i called on him to employ diplomacy rather than you should dress when it comes to challenging situations. we urge the iranians to think very long and hard before they break that deal. nothing could be worse than iran leave in the agreement there are no sanctions today from europe because iran has so far all resource back to the commitments
whole wheat artie's rick sanchez discuss iran's threat to restart its nuclear program with mohammad marandi of the university of tehran who helps negotiate the iran nuclear deal. even insiders here in washington with think tanks representing organizations like the carnegie endowment are now saying the troubled ministration is being quote deliberately provocative but we ask the question tonight is iran acting in a manner deserving of u.s. and israeli condemnation or are both countries simply trying to provoke busy the iranians into a war much like our invasion of iraq some are criticizing the 1st question why is president rouhani threatening to restart the iranian your rating and richmond program. well i think it's pretty obvious the iranians negotiated the nuclear deal after many years of negotiations and the iranians
made. significant concessions they were flexible in order to show the international community that its nuclear program never was anything but peaceful and that iran contrary to what we constantly heard in the western media was not looking to create tension i'm going to back you up on this actually 14 reports by the international nuclear energy agency 14 are confirming that iran has not violated the agreement at is not building a nuclear program why didn't the obama administration the trumpet ministration or the netanyahu administration buy that why did they believe it why do they say differently. and i think the intelligence agencies knew exactly what was happening and i think that they knew quite well that the nuclear program was peaceful the united states government and the political establishment really never
forgave iran after the revolution and the fact that iran chose an independent foreign policy but right now what trump is after in the union of many. people in iran is not to limit the nuclear program but according to what we see. coming from bolton and i'm pale it is basically to not just overthrow the political establishment but there was even talk about trying to make iran as a nation collapse all together. still to come on the weekly russian mark 74 years since the surrender of nothing germany the victory day parade in moscow alone comprise more than $13000.00 troops and dozens of armored vehicles will take a look at the commemorations after a short break. after
the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next the multiple different clubs on one hand it is logical to go from fields where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and a fresh perspective i'm used to surprising people and i saw one on t.v. . i'm going to talk about football not for you or else you can sink i was going to go. by the way ways and such like here. join me every thursday on the elec simon chill and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then.
welcome back russia mark the 74th anniversary of nazi germany surrender on thursday and the end of the war on the eastern front here's a look back at the commemorations. it's very difficult to describe the atmosphere here it's it's charge electric is intense but the super rich excitement up excitement just released during the break
itself. you hold the rope you run with. your rio. now you can see the screws through me. nothing unites this country more then the immortal regiment marched every time i see this i just don't understand when the flow of the crowd is going to stop its endless. victory day holds a special place here in russia due to the incredibly high price paid by the people
of the soviet union or $26000000.00 died in the conflict more than half of them being civilians that meant that practically every family lost someone. one of the bloodiest battles in the history of mankind took place and stalingrad and southern russia now known as volgograd at last for 200 days between 19021943 cost the red army more than $1300000.00 soldiers germany's losses were even higher on losing the battle the nazi leadership even a cleared a day of national mourning many historians see the battle of stalingrad as a watershed moment as it dramatically alter the course of the war even now harrowing reminders of the trauma inflicted by the war are emerging. assuming the collab each dig in and the last one left i've been injured and will not last long.
when i will stay here i will die when i refused to give in to the enemy tell my wife that i was defending the mother in law. who will win no matter what. eventually comrades. joe biden vice president under barack obama is leading the pack in the contest for the $2020.00 democratic presidential nomination that's according to the latest polls and it seems that much of the media and democratic leadership are throwing
their weight behind the former senator as they once did with hillary clinton come up and has more. a new poll shows that joe biden has surged ahead in the race for the democratic nomination in 2020 the poll shows that 46 percent of democrats are backing joe biden as the potential nominee with only 14 percent backing bernie sanders and despite a lot of other polls telling a very different story the media has jumped on this one voices are now telling us why he's the best choice for the democrats and this is a guy who doesn't hate republicans like you see some of the folks on the website you mean for joe biden is that he's the most electable candidate for democrats to beat donald trump i think joe biden is a best chance of success does this sudden coronation remind you of anything. hillary clinton is the best candidate democrats can put forward a take on donald trump voters in wisconsin think hillary clinton is the best candidate hillary clinton is the best candidate the media tells us that joe biden is the most experienced candidate furthermore it stresses the point that biden is
a centrist he's actually kind of a centrist which is one of the reasons why i think republicans fear him more than the other hillary clinton is not threatened in terms of the nomination because she is a pretty moderate centrist democrat and in fact biden's 1st campaign fundraiser happened at the home of the exact same guy his name is david cohen he's the chief lobbyist for the media conglomerate known as comcast now both biden and clinton voted for the iraq war both biden and clinton have lots of wall street donors and both biden and clinton screamed to lock him up in the 1990 s. driving america's incarceration rate sky high trumps a victory in the 26th election was interpreted largely as a rebuke of a failing political establishment now hillary clinton's husband got some interesting advice years ago my wife gave me a psychology book several months ago in which the author defined insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over again and expecting
a different result perhaps it's time to revisit that book polls are often a reflection of media coverage and the corporate media in the united states love suman gives him lots of coverage and that can give him support in polls and they often poll likely democratic voters which is not the same thing as who actually ends up voting in a general election even just who answers polls is not the same thing as who votes clinton she was the most experienced and the most right wing of the democrats and the media loves turbot he didn't mean she could get elected in fact the polls were overwhelmingly clear time and time again b.d. of appreciate them if there are massive purchases of advertise. joe biden 2020 has already engaged in of what the media like someone telling everyone they're the leading candidate as they did overwhelmingly with you know every clinton does not
you know anyway obvious mean that that is the candidate who is going to be the knowledge. facebook has provoked another storm of controversy this time by banning an australian breast cancer advertising campaign for violating its rules on nudity . with. the ads featured topless survivors of breast cancer are covering themselves with small cakes the campaign was launched by the breast cancer network australia together with the bakers to light chain last year it raised more than half a 1000000 dollars the chief executive of breast cancer network australia says that facebook previously approved the advertisements. we were so disappointed to hear that facebook had found that very brave women and men who all had breast cancer we're told that they were probably too real into confronting to be able to have on
facebook particularly in that 40 plus age group use facebook to tell their friends and family of things that are important to them so facebook has been important we have been trying to get in contact with facebook and still we have only heard through the made here in fact here in australia that they sent to us we needed to add educational messages this was very new news to us the only thing that we knew is that the ads were allowed to happen but then again the day that we launched facebook said these ads were no longer permissible a spokesperson for facebook australia says that while she personally love the idea the ads didn't fall platform guidelines does allow for the posting of person most like to me photos by ordinary people but for advertisers rules are stricter here's how facebook users have been reacting violated the platforms needed to policy facebook seriously but this is ok this is not to return facebook naked garden
indeed takes precedence over a fundraiser for cancer survivors and sufferers this only illustrates the true agenda of the facebook mission statement so when a group use the facebook form for a good cause they jump and it's been shifted down we spoke to human rights attorney jennifer britton she thinks that the band points to wider concerns with the social media giant. facebook right now say that it has a consistent policy if you just look at the language of its policy but it is not consistent and how it in forces its policy is targeting in campaigns like this with breast cancer research or awareness but it's also targeting different political groups in certain things so it needs to look at how it targets so that it chooses to enforce its ban under because there are many people who have far more explicit ads that are not banned we're seeing that america has a silence prominent conservative voices were seen that is they silence other things other ads and they target these people they target those that they want to silence
that differ with them politically or socioeconomically and that is not ok we need to have consistency and we need to have platforms that allow the freedom of speech to come out rather than silencing the freedom of speech and using it under the guise of violating policies. that's a recap of just some of the stories that helped shape the world these past 7 days thanks for joining us this hour. we have a situation that is very new and that's why. it's like i feel like before the war were to when people were dying but in the morning and there was no and go to school or do you know the 2 so that the boy it was through to the right of the world to move and the game of the as a medical and the widespread simplicity is good code of people today. in many
diseases because of this would you fully broke up that is. when the lawmakers manufactured to sentenced him to public wealth. when the ruling closest to protect themselves. in the final merry go round lifts and be the one percent. we can all middle of the room sick. i mean real news room. this is a pretty and a sort of little bit similar to the 51st but if. you're doing what you know well to the minute you did it was and i go to the. losing is its ability.
to get rid of that all you want to go to good but no none of that it's a liberal still it was gut feeling almost all. went up well it was pretty good growing less a room full of kind of what you stand to which could be hope of the only thing. 1st i. heard you live through your lonely year old video store on the ledge dear sir my looked up from moods your birds are doing the kluge your coco the singer. all film begins in hawaii in the middle of the pacific ocean in spite of the
island's remote location it is also foreman that day and to the epidemic of the 20th century plastic. plastic pollution is littering beaches and endangering certain species of animals no matter how remote or out of reach. in this elaborate tree in the north of the occupied ago scientists study marine animals not plastic at least in theory. no idea what that is. but it's certainly plastic. and jessica perelman is a biologist accustomed to finding plastic in fish stomachs she has started a very unique connection. casually often plastic bags. and this was off
of the stomach when i found it had no idea what it wasn't all that it just. or did you react when i'm this installment i was shocked i started you know documenting at measuring it taking photos showing whoever else was around in the lab and we were kind of. we were just in our shock to think that that these fish are are really ingesting this i mean. to her disbelief the scientist has found plastic in an unlikely specimen known as the long fish. the young was not expecting such a surprising discovery when she began her work on this piece is. a fish live at a depth of about 200 to 400 meters.
