are watching r t international bring you your live news update from our studio here in moscow welcome to the program. home secretary has handed us extradition request for julian to the courts which will consider the whistleblower fate a hearing into the metal matter is scheduled for friday for the edwards reports from london. well it's a dark day for drew innocent and his supporters as the u.k.'s home secretary sajid javid has just signed an order paving the way for dear innocents to be extradited to the united states now he himself said that he was pleased that you're in a sonorous behind bars and that justice will prevail in this procedure we're very pleased that the police were finally able to apprehend him and now he's right behind bars because he broke you cade law i want to see justice done all the time so we've got a legitimate execution request so i've signed it but the final decision is now with
the courts well it must be noted that the final decision is for the courts and the courts alone of course the united states does want your innocence 2 for 17 indictments under the espionage act for publishing and delivering classified communications and documents all related to the iraq war and the war in afghanistan but also conspiring and even indeed hacking government computers and publishing these secret documents now the platform of which was used to do this is wiki leaks and the editor in chief and day says that you're innocent will not receive a fair trial i do believe that we are going to win this with legal argument there is no chance the julian will get a fair trial here in the u.k. or in the u.s. of course unless there's a change of reporting that people actually start speaking out we're not talking about a prosecution we're talking about a persecution welcome to the sun just serving a 50 week sentence in the u.k. as belmarsh prison that's a high security prison here in the u.k.
and that was for skipping bareback and 2012 now this is a video filmed inside the belmarsh prison by an inmate and it was a tame by artie's video agency ruptly and as you can see he looks somewhat i'm a c 8 and rather skeletal there in the belmarsh prison now last month genocide was actually moved to the medical ward there and his father earlier this week said that you're innocent is recovering from a dramatic weight loss during his time. i mean the bow much present and indeed the ecuadorian embassy of course was thrown back into the public eye back in april where he was forcibly removed by british police from the london's ecuadorian embassy where he was actually seeking political asylum and he was holed up there for almost 2 and a half 1000 days which is the sum of almost 7 years in confinement when it isn't just the united states that well you're innocent you're also hearing that swedish prosecutors want you in a silent for sexual assault allegations made against him something that your
innocence he himself then at me denies he also believes it's a pretext to then extradite him to the united states. to oil tankers have caught fire in the gulf of them and inspected attacks incident occurred with high tensions in the middle east and triggered a surge in oil prices it comes a month after similar events in the region back then the us accuse iran of sabotaging 2 saudi oil tankers something the islamic republic denied when i joined live in the studio by corridor donald what's the latest here well jacki we still have a lot of unconfirmed information but much of it has been cleared up since the explosions the main thing we know is that all of the crew members are safe and accounted for iranian state t.v. reports 44 crew members as well as 2 oil tankers were involved in this incident that happened by the strait of hormuz 11 russians were on board and the tankers were sailing under the flags of panama and the marshall islands now there were
witnesses who said that one vessel called from delta air was in flames quote on fire and adrift and the iranian state media also posted pictures of this on their twitter account now the company that owns both of the oil tankers frontline told russian media that there doesn't appear to be an oil spill or any pollution as a result of the flames going back to the beginning of the incident it became known after the u.s. navy reported 2 distress calls thursday morning. well they claim that they helped out with the rescue effort iranian state media is saying that the an iranian ship was the 1st to be on the scene and they rescued all $44.00 of the crew members now the u.s. fleet commander later said that it was possible that there was an attack that caused this explosion and some reports are saying that one or 2 of the ships was hit by a torpedo others are suggesting that there were naval mines involved but none of these are confirmed yet and frontline has also said that it's too early to say whether or not this was an attack now this is strikingly familiar to an incident
that occurred and may tell us a bit more about that yeah definitely well back in may like you said there was an attack on for oil tankers near the united arab emirates now the government there originally denied the attack happened altogether but later they said that it was the result of an unnamed state actor sabotaging the oil tankers with naval mines now although the u.s. was much more straightforward in accusing iran of this national security adviser john bolton said that he was almost certain that iran was responsible in response to ron called this accusation ridiculous and called bolton a war monger and these harsh words there are not random there amidst heightened tensions that continue to persist in the persian gulf today let's not forget that the united states put their naval fleet there in the persian gulf and are at the same time saying that they're not trying to raise tensions or start a war on top of that washington has already said that they want to exert maximum economic pressure on iran after the failure of the nuclear deal so this is
definitely a delicate situation that could easily become more volatile artie's on a quarter bringing us the latest thank you. we cannot cross live to her attorney at law in paris specializing in middle eastern studies for more on this now what do you think of this incident was it an attack as has been suggested or is there another explanation here. good evening. i think there was an attack but the question is who who are attacked. so far nobody knows who attacked the ships but there are some quite a coincidence that are getting strange because one of the ships that was attacked and torpedoed was the japanese ships and by coincidence the prime minister of japan busy was in iran a yesterday and he was with meeting with the supreme going around the. hominy
and even the foreign minister of iran is there if we did that this is strange because it happened as soon as the japanese prime minister when there there was an attack on a few ships and especially a new one the japanese and the ships but that's far we don't know we don't know what who's behind that we have we can have some kind of ideas but we don't know still who is behind it so we have the iranian foreign minister calling this is specious do you think he has a point then. he he has he has a very very strong point because what you know i'm a lawyer i'm a lawyer so as an attorney i can tell you you have to know when a crime is committed you have to know to whom this crime is beneficial so as we can discuss and we can see the geopolitical situation of iran and the united states in the persian gulf we can say that the iranians are not going to torpedo is sheep which will lead to the americans who attack them and it's going to give the
american an excuse to attack. iran their country of iran so it cannot be the iranians will it be the americans not because the americans despite what donald trump always say he doesn't want to go to war he doesn't want to put boots on the ground he doesn't want to send his troops to iran to get killed the american people are not ready for that he just want to score a political win and get the uranium to come and discuss on the table with him so it's only john bolton who wants to go to war but even the president recently said that he's ready to discuss with the iranians and even my computer the secretary of state who is the hottest and who was go to war all the time he said recently that the united states is ready to negotiate with iran without any precondition so last year he said $1212.00 point of obligation for the iranian to commit in order for the united states to go and sit on the table with the iranians last week he said
there is no precondition he they are ready to discuss with that so who's who's going to benefit from from this if it's not the iranian and it's not the american. american those americans don't want to go to war iranians on the americans who attack them so there are 2 countries that will be an if that gets a lot of benefit for that because they're not going to go to war and they don't have the americans at the union it's saudi arabia the united arab emirates israel. right now we also have german media claiming this could be a similar scenario to what was seen at the start of the vietnam war do you think such a provocation is possible here. i think it's possible you know the americans are usually one they wonder when they want to start a war or when they want to start to put pressure on someone they start they start little by little you know saying that we want to free the country we want to free the people we've got to go there and see what's going to happen all of
a sudden an accident happens and they start saying that it's the vietnamese it's the iraqis now it's the ukrainians and they have they have been illegitimate cause for their people to our tack another country. as they always do the attack another country and it they say is for the good of the people that's what they did in iraq because they said the. iraqi people had weapons of mass destruction they never found anything but they still attacked iraq iraq invaded iraq and they still doing the same i feel with iran but they feel there is not going to be a new war i hope for her shermer attorney at law in paris and middle east expert thank you for your time and your comments. the u.s. is bursting its military presence and poland as part of a new deal with donald trump or start will host an extra $1000.00 american troops by u.s.
fighter jets and purchased american liquefied natural gas moscow meanwhile says it regrets the u.s. military buildup in poland doesn't trump praises polish kind of part in washington u.s. polish alliance it's a very special alliance with very special people poland will soon provide. basing an infrastructure to support military presence of about $1000.00 american troops polish government will pay for this so america is bolstering its military presence in poland they are adding to the $4500.00 troops that are already in the country on a rotating basis now it sounds dramatic but it's actually somewhat short of the request from poland for a permanent us military base which they intended to name for trump in the end the usa agreed to shift non-combat troops to poland to had already been stationed elsewhere in europe so who are the poles trying to defend themselves from because. russia is again showing its unkind unfriendly imperial faces russia is always
looking out to take us territory yes those menacing russians on whole one's border just waiting for the right moment to invade but it seems that donald trump doesn't quite share that view do not see the rush to read the whole 1000000 and 2 you wrote . i hope. we're with everybody and i hope i think that russia will treat poland with respect now while the russian threat may be imaginary the money that poland is showing the united states is very real big buyers of our equipment to our planes and our munitions in every form in every respect at this point we've got praising warsaw for meeting its nato spending requirements 2 percent of their g.d.p. trump is encouraging poland to buy more than 30 f. 35 fighter jets even had one of them fly over the white house on the sunny afternoon today gave an encouraging wave and there's more money from poland coming
america's way trump alle the deal in which the country would purchase 2000000000 cubic meters of liquefied natural gas from the united states furthermore at this point trump is praising poland for its baltic pipe project we support poland's construction of the baltic pipeline. which will help european countries diversify their energy sources it's desperately needed and that's the way to go so the big bad russians have got poland into a situation where it has no choice except to increase its military spending purchase a bunch of fancy new after 35 fighter jets and import liquefied natural gas all the way from the other side of the planet yes trump the salesman is happy to make a deal it seems that sometimes having a bogeyman can be very convenient kaleb up and r.t. new york political commentator and journalist john white says the move by the post later will weigh heavily on his country's taxpayers fortunate that the polish
government is confusing their revolutionary russian league team engine with the russian federation of 280 nothing can used to win didn't send a standing ovation for what has changed because this is redolent early train just change the norms when it comes to pull into being very crucial contest and try to gauge the u.s. and provoke a different actions against russia a very sad day for coolish the polish people taxpayers' money is going to be wasted on trade opium for these u.s. troops this year to tional deployment and also the poles want even more they want. a military base up there under the u.s. military base and a country if they go to that state and who knows what the consequences will be because it's only the sheen of russia up to now not responding to these are people that he should have a load the situation today being stable no nothing it remains a case who knows. human rights watch says a british government report whitewashes
a saudi arabia's role in yemen's humanitarian crisis the british foreign office report states that the conflict in yemen has had a devastating impact on people's lives but it only mention saudi arabia one of the sides in the war in connection with the alleged use of secret prisons. and mr international alleged the use of secret prisons in areas under the saudi led coalition's control there was no reliable process for inquiry into detainees held at these facilities human rights watch as that riyadh's actions in the yemen could amount to war crimes and accuses the u.k. of turning a blind eye the reports most striking witness is on the yemen while acknowledging the many civilians killed in the conflict it ignores the saudi led coalition's responsibility indiscriminate saudi led coalition air strikes in yemen have hit hospitals funerals weddings markets civilian homes and even a school bus killing and wounding thousands many of these attacks may be work crimes. since 2015 britain has sold 4700000000 pounds worth of weapons to riyadh
and here one of the biggest exporters of arms to the kingdom the issue of athens exports to the saudis has sparked heated exchanges in the u.k. parliament over cross a comment from the british foreign office of us how far we have not had ever sponsor the saudi led coalition began its bombing campaign against who think rebels and yemen which route sees as terrorists back in 2015 saudi arabia insists it's doing all it can to reduce civilian casualties as you know all the un has described the situation in the country as the worst manmade humanitarian crisis on earth and warning you may find some of the falling images upsetting.
the bomb as a killing people the cholera epidemic number of people who are in hunger because of the block a port of data etc the foreign office is trying to obfuscate or hide from the british people. that there was a or even the illegal action saudi arabia and its. in its war on the people of yemen the united kingdom just like the united states has a strategic interest in the region they want to target these and elected dictatorial monarchical governments in order to secure natural gas resources and the people of yemen fighting for their liberation. to that foreign policy go.
still to come a merely formed euro skeptic bloc opposes the extension of anti russia sanctions story more after the break. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. more some want to be preached. to the right to the press this is what the for freedom all the people. interested always in the waters about how. things should be. we are in a strange situation where everybody is making a lot of noise about military action against iran but nobody in the part of that
alliance actually wants to do it there's no desire for it so do you hope that iran makes a mistake. somehow. and then does it some kind of confrontation and then the iranians will be forced to come to the table you know begging for some kind of solution on american terms but you know i think that is dreaming that's a pipe dream. welcome back and lines of new here a skeptic parties in the european parliament have come together to form a bloc called identity and democracy will be the 5th largest group in the parliament with around 10 percent of the seats and they've also now announced they intend to oppose the extension of anti russia saying sons are breath national has a story. we have been hearing about the nationalist alliance in the european parliament for quite some time already and on thursday in brussels the leader of
france's national rally then announced that officially saying it is a drastic change to the political chess board of the european union identity and democracy or shortly aidid that's the blocks name will unite the right wing parties from 9 european countries common direction common goal to take power from brussels and give it to the country members capitals for that very reason they are often referred to in the media as you are skeptics shortly after the new born party presentation its core chairman who is also known here in germany as the federal spokesperson for the alternative for germany a right wing party presented one of the features of the party's poorest that is definitely too different from the european union sanctions against russia make no sense let's take a listen we oppose the extension of sanctions they did not fix the actions of russia we can extend them for another 10 years it will not change anything it came
less than a week after the russian president vladimir putin said that russia is dreaded to move towards the european union but the you should take the 1st step if the use policy towards russia changes will not only will commit will take reciprocal steps this also applies to the conversations we were 1st to apply after the certain restrictions on us then you alliance will take 73 seats of this 751 seat european parliament 10 percent compared to 5 percent in the last previous significant change 8 makes it to feast largest alliance in the palm and which makes the chances are very high that the party will be successful in pushing forward its policy and we are going to see the changes then talked about. u.s. national security adviser john bolton says reports of disagreements between donald trump and his top aides are part of a december mission campaign by the likes of russia china and iran also burned
american journalists who write such reports sinatra 1st of those regimes. north korea iran. venezuela russia and china pride too so this information about the administration and to say that the president and his advisors are divided and things like that the naga refers of these regimes in the american press immediately pick it up. come on mr bolton in case you've been living under a rock the past few years u.s. president donald trump doesn't get along too well with the rest of capitol hill close to 30 of his team members have either resigned or were fired since he got into office his term has been haunted by a cascade of information leaks by insiders saboteurs and trump hasn't always been on the same page with the rest of the administration. you think north korea remains a nuclear threat yes but the president said he doesn't it's not what he said i mean
i know i know personally we did it and there is no longer a nuclear threat from north korea. i had a very good talk with president putin is. not looking at all to get involved in venezuela where he was apparently ready to leave after the airport. but the russians talked him out of that is that right that's right now it could be because the trump isn't a tory asli divisive figure by nature could be because he's flip flops so much that he's policy u. turns were created into actual flip flops well you know he's sometimes difficult to keep up with and you know after all it doesn't have to be a bad thing a clash of ideas challenging each other on policies is synonymous with democracy isn't it i re read a news 3 times due to how unbelievable it is that the russians in other bad guys spread this information about a divided opinions of the u.s. president and his closest aides seriously when the president and his inner circle
have different opinions it is a sign of the democratic process in the country doesn't washington defend this value with such zeal so yeah it could be a good thing except it probably stops being one when things move from the realm of professional to personal to go to work for a man who. is pretty on discipline and doesn't doesn't like to read doesn't read briefs. report's doesn't doesn't like to get into the details of a lot of things bricks to listen didn't have the mental capacity needed he was dumb as a rock and i couldn't get rid of him fast enough he was lazy is how we already know a lot about the discord ready in the trumpet ministration from former trump it ministration officials i mean let's face it what could north korea do to sow discord in the us what could be his way all of you it's doesn't make any sense the white house does not want to appear to be fragile they're now facing
a reelection very soon in 2020 and boldness trying to help trump cover is behind by claiming others are responsible for discord and not those within the wife of course the message being that you know john bolton is looking for a pretext to go to war somewhere and he's a very devious man he likes to write. that's a news wrap up for now but i'll be back at the top the hour with the latest thanks for telling it. to the.
paradise with some all year round turned into a round the experimentation field for agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would that the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments but often in day you have many of these people where one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental research going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with this because the people have less political power.
not. everyone's story is different are going to pass is there for a young no what's actually going to hit you. like i was pretty comfortable in my life before this happened. earthenware dobbs ferry. got me into this. you know i was a middle child. i'm sorry he was the day. this is some day he was doing to just you know make sure he can money in his pocket. it was like we had to look out for you can but nothing happened to to the baby.
