a bit more detail on it we've just been talking about police in the republic of detained a russian citizen who is a member of the u.n. mission there is according to the serbian president alexander. nuclear that one russian citizen. of an employee of the u.n. was also beaten and detained we notified the relevant russian authorities about this. so security forces in serbia are all full alert right now after police in neighboring cars are launched what they describe as a major operation against organized crime suspects the move comes amid rising tension in the dominated northern coast of belgrade warned that it would react swiftly of kosovo attacked along with those sirens in it serbia lost control of a kosovo after a nato intervention back in 1909 and did not recognize its. declaration of independence so a lot of the going at the moment donal quarters across from the across this storm
saw an ongoing major security operation in kosovo but over in serbia across the border high alert yeah absolutely tensions with serbia suddenly spiked earlier today after what exactly what you said cost of a secret police was deployed into northern neighborhood kosovo where there was a serb minority there serbian state t.v. says several people were arrested including at least one serbian official now the serbian president alexander is set to speak at parliament later today after about the latest developments in the situation but for now he's put the military on high alert. the police operation was conducted over the whole to reach of course over not just in the north and differently was an aim bits it was aimed at fighting against crime and corruption. now one serbian official marco georget says that the raid was aimed at intimidating serbs in the region while the secret police claims it was following a month's months long investigation into organized crime in that region and nato
actually also commented on it they said it's just a regional issue this was huge of the news years ago decades ago in the late ninety's just for our viewers catching up here was tensions so hot there at the moment well these ethnic tensions really seriously worsened after the 1999 nato bombing of kosovo separatist insurgency came to power there afterwards and declared independence in 2008 and to this day the serbian government does not recognize that declaration of independence so let's take a look at a quick clip that describes that history. the full amount of the republic. now president bush has already
told the european union that serbia will active kosovo secret police has not withdrawn from the region in due time so it is possible that we'll see some reactions from the international community in the coming hours and you know also maybe a bit more about the detained russian citizen member of the u.n. mission there that we're hearing about as well all right we'll let you get back to its own course of things for now. president thomas encouraging japan to increase his military capability the president who's in tokyo says japan could help the u.s. to defend against threats in the asia pacific region and beyond meantime u.s. vice president mike pence touched on those perceived threats to during a speech at the elite military academy west point it wraps it up. you will fight on a battlefield for america some point your life if you didn't notice the words in the background that was mr vice president talking to the graduates of a top class u.s. military academy and that wasn't it how do you like this degree of certainty it is
a virtual certainty that you will fight on a battlefield for america some point your life. you will lead soldiers in combat. you will have so what is the 2nd most important official in the country trying to make clear by that the good old boots on the ground will certainly be on the way to quite a few different places after all come on no one in this world would dare to send an army against america to put up a fight there nobody will realistically send soldiers to attack the superpower of all superpowers and so men and women of west point no matter where you're deployed . you will be the vanguard of freedom here they are the future of basters of freedom you look at their faces and frankly it doesn't seem they're in raptures over what mr pence is saying but let's hear where in the world we might expect to
see a boost in freedom in the days to come some of you will join the fight against radical islamic terrorists in afghanistan. and iraq oh these are familiar places where the pro says so to say began a while ago soon it will be 20 years any more destinations some of you will join the fight in europe where an aggressive russia seeks to redraw international boundaries by force probably in this area it's a bit of an exaggeration that the graduates will find themselves on a battlefield taking part in nato as big war games there that's more like it. well at least for now it's only been in the form of drills for now and finally the
most curious part and some of you may even be called busy upon to serve. in this hemisphere it won't be rocket science for you to figure out where the boots on the ground money to be marching off to next in the western hemisphere van zyl well all where for the white house it's a classic all options are on the table plus we heard from the opposition big guy there one of why don't he wouldn't mind at all it's reflex this administration that has been gunning for war in iran for a war in venezuela. seems to think that the us is allowed to do rejean change in other countries and take other countries resources i think that it reflects this idea that the united states is the only superpower in the world and it gets to wage war if it wants to and certainly continue the wars that we have
been in these are wars the president trump said he was going to get us out of and we continue to be in those who are supporting other wars proxies like saudi arabia and threatening new wars. don't want trump's going head to head with america's intelligence services the us president's demanding that they declassify the origins of the miller investigation into the trump russian collusion the special counsels 2 year probe no evidence of criminal conspiracy between the campaign and the russian government during the 2016 presidential election next our senior correspondent were guys to have looks at how the mass media is shifted stem somewhat on whether the u.s. president can actually question tippity of the intelligence services or not. the thing with spies with all this secrets and power and egos is that it really seems to goo to their heads and honestly how can you blame them they are
literally be yawned public scrutiny and he wouldn't tries to stick their nose in you just stamp everything that's classified and loudly denounce them as unpatriotic see it as a very very serious and outrageous move on the part of mr trump once again trampling upon the statutory authorities of the director of national intelligence and the heads of the independent intelligence agencies how dead trump what true american would ever question why they're being wiretapped and spied upon good thing america has m.s.m. be she true patriots would miss the bread and full time so you can vent his frustrations for everyone to hear of course to do that m.s.n. b.c. had to sacrifice their principles and integrity president obama said today he still
stands by his cia chief john brennan even though it turns out the cia was indeed spying on the senate and some senators are calling for brennan to be fired now just to be clear that was in 2014 when they weren't on the same side then spying on everyone you own elected leaders included was considered dubious these is 2019 and the word spying is now considered politically incorrect it offends people whose people who secretly eavesdrop and record in film everyone agents the good guys. a talking point from the president and those around him telling congress buying did occur on the trump campaign it's a loaded word aston. the implications of using that word has now gone trump's favorite new word and the trump media's favorite new word. senate intelligence
chair dianne feinstein accuse brennan cia of secretly tracking the senate's investigation into one of the worst abuses in recent cia history and now factor in this huge new scandal the fact that brennan cia was spying on members of congress the cia was spying on the senate intelligence committee basically busting into their computers but i give m s n b c too much credit or others to washington post gave brennan his own column where he publishes pieces with nubile noble titles i will speak out until integrity returns to the white house promises well done washington post it takes courage to set aside what you believe in to go back on your word but again it's been 5 years who remembers things like that right the guardian same thing. cia director john brennan lied to you on to the senate fired him. why is donald trump attacking the u.s.
intelligence community surprisingly brandon isn't working for the guardian yet one by one though the pundits and the seeing wrong from right the question is are they going to demand brennan's resignation or accountability within the cia patriotic answer by the way is no holding the cia accountable would be sure to put secret agents do top secret stuff and drink martinis and add things and carry out special secret missions i didn't see anything improper on lawful and yes james clapper brennan's former boss is now a c.n.n. employee. e a tell you this every true american can be proud that they are a brave brave people watch over you and record everything you do or say
they and night whether you wanted or not and if times or politics change in 5 years no one will remember it ever happened. if a coach attributed to president trumps gone viral social media and some are using it therefore as an example of how false news can so easily spread. cut cut cut. cut cut cut cut cut cut cut.
cut. this window truck became our president was it when he kowtow to putin and house thank you. cut ian bremmer now admits that he made up a completely ludicrous quite attributing it to me this is what's going on in the age of fake news people think they can say anything and get away with it really the libel motion be changed to hold fake news media accountable. even spreading misinformation thinking that's his proven something he's proven that he's not to either source of information and not have the trust of the dad even as a media. afternoon here in moscow break kevin up after that story from finland teachers there flooding up concerns about busy students fasting during ramadan we'll explain more so as we're back.
lots and lots of trailer parks all socialize reporting to one corporate behavior on wall street and they're extracting nickels and dimes and a lot of people are so. hi good afternoon teachers in finland have expressed concern over muslim students fasting during the holy month of ramadan they claim it affects the students' concentration during classes. ramadan is noticeable due increasing sidey never d.c. school life we cannot 1st feature or give injections of nutrients or we can do is advise parents not to force children to fast fasting for young children can be successful at home not at school without food so this year ahead of ramadan
authorities in one southern finnish city called on schools not to observe the fast and some institutions have reportedly been offering water an extended break to muslim students to the background of course the holy month of ramadan which ends next monday is the most sacred of the muslim calendar people abstain from food and drink from sunrise to sunset it's considered to be a month of purification and the 4th key pillar of islam. on the side of this over in germany politicians there including the health minister of calling for a more compatible form of islam to be promoted to preserve they say european traditions and culture instead of tolerating symbols of a reactionary missal journalistic form of islam we must promote the development of a european islam which shares our values in order to preserve our free european way of life we talked about this earlier seems the crux of the roe comes down of the line between faith and flexibility. the central principles of the stomach faith are non-negotiable in this same where the jewish community want to be told
what they can and cannot believe and i think that's a really dangerous precedent is being crossed your of this war on islam which is about demonizing and taking away the rights of muslims to practice their faith finished. sensibly do run the best education system in the world with their liberal nordic mind decided that they wanted to help muslim kids out a little bit and are trying to inject a little bit of liberalism and a little bit of tolerance into people who otherwise should know better there is liberal societies like the scandinavian countries who talk about liberalism who talk of individual freedom of speech and if you do a choice but in reality you want to restrict that for one section of society another thing that's deeply wrong if you go to tampa and you meet the finnish muslims and my kids are half inish you will see that they are very accustomed very tribal eyes come from a certain culture and tradition they're not used to having open dialogue integration liberal tolerant values which came from the islamic traditions to
europe in the 1st place so muslims do need to change they need to get back to a key understanding of what islam is what islam isn't and we need to get our house in order because muslims have got problems to deal with there is a wide discussion to be had you know the muslims are very passionate about practice you know and we've got to ensure that we educate our fellow citizens who are not muslim about the benefits but also about the challenges of fasting look i think whether it's the issue of fasting whether receive the headscarf whether it's the any other range of issues when we're talking about how islam co-exists there's a lot of debate a lot of pressure on how do muslims whether they assimilate or whether they integrate the key point here is about tolerance it's about respect and for muslims it's about returning to the prophetic way which is one of tolerance of spectrum multi-faith coexistence and i can raise an. islam you see today i'm not saying people should go to hard manichean issue but we need to learn the values of
tolerance and liberalism back from the europeans who took it from us in the 1st place and the islam that people are trying to move back to are nor sure that's the way it should be. the greens or the liberals have emerged victorious from parliamentary elections in the european union comes at the expense of centrist blocs than without establishment parties coming in on top in italy in france and belgium next to show the do burns q reports today there's no shortage of course of political drama in the run up to the big vote. 4 months pundits have been predicting a rise in anti establishment parties ahead of the e.u. elections afterwards they were right but across the bloc in the weeks leading up to the vote panic was setting in and let's be clear that panic was and without ground scandals emerged all reemerged in a timely fashion. take malkin 10 days before france headed to the polls the e.u.'s top court ordered her to pay back
300000 euros to the european parliament this followed a case in which the national rally had been accused of paying an aide incorrectly but the timing felt off it was almost as if it was a way to tell voters that her party just couldn't be trusted that came hot on the heels of accusations that former trump strategist steve baron was actually the one pulling all the pens strings yet the public didn't seem to care and the national rally still talked the polls here in france other scandals that were rife in the media included one russians well at least the alleged russians no shock there but of course not a single troll in sight. it was of course if. the party which was in coalition. people's party found itself
under the spotlight not for its potentially dubious policies but for a good old cash influence gambit. revici's. he. there was even an attempt to drag le pen's name into the thick gate as it became known a few months ago marine le pen was singing the praises of austrian vice chancellor heinz christian straka saying how formidable he was struck as being forced to resign we find out why he was trying to sell his services to foreign forces behind this nationalist movement is a submission to foreign forces despite this the f p o still managed to pick up just over 17 percent of the vote in austria. there was also of course the elections very own 2 moment one swedish democrats
candidate accused the other of sexual harassment and even though this scandal washed away it didn't hamper the anti immigration party's performance they increased their share of the vote to more than 15 percent. and despite merkel. warning the populous parties wanted to destroy europe we are haring to deal with populist movements that in many areas are contemptuous of our values and want to destroy the europe of the valleys we represent we have to stand up to this these parties significantly increase their representation in many parts of the e.u. sex money the long arm of washington reaching for controlling europe nothing seemed to put voters off seeking something new what is clear from the results of these
elections is that the old guard could no longer count on the masses to support them implying face what europeans want is something different it seems a godless want that is show that deep r.t. paris political comedy jo white believes that europe's centrist bloc had it coming as he puts it vote for straight and simply bowled over. the global economic crash into terms of meet centrism is fail to learn any lessons and then have events nor move towards any kind of reform whatsoever in the spawns to the rise of the skepticism from the right as a means stream political current where before it's always been on the margins certainly on on what trend is no fashion upon and this 3 european union is going to be nigh. what can people across europe have been suffering monumental disappear and late of this economic crash and the ensuing austerity programs that
have been implemented across europe. and that's a snapshot of some of the big we'll do stories we're covering a few today this tuesday the 28th of may so much more of course on our site out to the dog on your moscow is kevin out of the rest the same side so watching and enjoy the programs after this break in your part of the world. thank you. thank. the. field.
and a very warm welcome to you you're watching us inside. to a. kaiser this is the kaiser report. this is stacy this is stacy harbor and you know where continue in the 2nd half with yet another interview with dan collins he is the head researcher heisenberg capital and he lived in china for 20 years so it's really great information about china what's going on there you know there is one story they keep on doing the rounds these days and that's the rare earth elements you know there are what are the 17 of these elements and they're actually not all that rare but 80 to 90 percent of them are
produced by china simply because the the process of processing these rare earths out of the dirt is really environmentally unsound very toxic so the u.s. used to produce the most rare earth elements from a single mine in california a mountain pass but that stops in the late 1970 s. or early eighty's when china was willing to become the great polluter of earth and take on that responsibility so just so you know when you hear these stories about rare earth elements that they're actually quite abundant just by the name of i think of the leeching yes is the process to extract that it isn't viral mostly horrible yeah the acid leaching you have to do it like a 100 times you have to keep on doing it over and over like and you know you can compare it to fracking but at least add some lee going through once or twice you know these toxic chemicals going through your water supply but you know what trump
i wanted to just point out as we try to compete with china what we're doing is just basically doing a race to the bottom here is the headline e.p.a. plans to get thousands of pollution deaths off the books by changing its math and if we do this and once the e.p.a. does show. basically lower deaths caused by pollution we'll be able to increase our coal production and go to that 18th century technology of coal and you know at least trample when. those west virginia votes again their main this is a radical behavior by the government where they just these measurements and we saw that with inflation right the inflation is running really at 678 percent but the government says it's running at less than 2 percent because they don't include things that are actually going up in price so when things go up and cries they do so-called donica just once and swap out for stuff that's not going up in price and then they claim.
