you couldn't stop. and germany is in the grip of a heat wave which has also triggered a crime wave including a large brawl at a swimming pool. a very warm welcome to the program from all of us here at our to h.q. in moscow thanks for joining us this hour. thought of me putin has met with the pope in the vatican it's the 3rd time russia's president has met pope francis the previous meetings in 20132015 as they moved through the papal palace for talks the pair both displayed their politeness as they approached the door but the pope invited him to enter the room 1st and the russian president in turn offered to let francis through 1st for accepting himself. is in rome for us with the latest let's cross live to him now ilya take us through the highlights of the meeting
between the pope and putin and bring us up to speed on who else putin is meeting today. jacqueline good afternoon once again definitely this is a special one the great display of warmth and respect and that scene at the door explains it all it's definitely not an awkward moment but obviously just a great display of friendship. and the head of the roman catholic church stand why don't while to get there they were seen to walk in through the ancient waters of the vatican looking at all these precious exhibits paintings the talks themselves lasted for an hour and we were expecting an exchange of gifts and. it happened pope francis got. old russian orthodox
icon which is also a very precious item and also a movie now what the russian president got from the poles was an 18th century drawing and also a message to the young people in russia we don't know if that meeting wrapped up for the moment but right now. in one of the building will be italian government and the russian president is not here right now so when it comes to. political intrigue something that's more important in that sense is for how he and washington's talks with the italian prime minister it's the 1st such visit in more than 3 years the last time a lot of improvement was here was in 2015 and ever since then as the so-called euro skeptics to call for the government in rome we know that they are critical of the e.u. use economic policies including the sanctions against russia we also have to remember
that trade between italy and russia was booming before 2014 when the ukraine crisis happened and when the italian journalists were interview when vladimir putin ahead of this visit they brought the sanctions stalemate and this is what the russian president told them. as for the removal of sanctions i have spoken on the subject time and time again the one behind the sanctions is the one to take the 1st step i'm talking about the european union after that russia will be able to repeal its countermeasures it is our hope that common sense will eventually prevail and europe will prioritize its own interests rather than follow instructions given by somebody else so here is an important message that came from the italian prime minister mr conte before that italy is willing to make that 1st
step but the taliban leader for now is confident that the lifting of sanctions is very unlikely because the general vision of the european union remains the same. unilateral actions within the framework of the current european mechanism would not produce any result even for russia that is why we are working to involve all parties in a constructive dialogue. however mr putin in that interview that i mentioned reminded that still economic ties between russia and italy are on the rise its only remains russia is the biggest trading partner and when it comes to investments both ways and the previous year they were worth several 1000000000 u.s. dollars now the journalists also keep bringing up the allegations of russian
meddling and the potential threat as they put it that's still something that worries all the media around the world including here in europe and this is how mr putin elaborated on that issue in that interview. let me emphasize we have never interfered in the internal affairs of the european union member states or any other states and we are not going to this is what makes us markedly different from the u.s. and some of its allies which for instance supported the coup d'etat in ukraine in february 2014 so as i've said right now i'm in as small room somewhere in talese a government building which is full of italian journalists that explains why it's quite loud where i am right now and we are all awaiting a press conference by vladimir program that's supposed to start in about a couple of hours. r.t. deal of time go bring us the latest from around the. germany is in the grip of
a heat wave at the moment and it seems to be driving people a bit crazy there leading to everything from public nudity to mass violence at swimming pools as peter overby reports the heat wave that's been roasting parts of europe has seen some here in germany full foul of the law take the smoke played right brandenburg for example he received a caution from the police after his attempts to feel the breeze so into. to write is scary too with no clothes on but the behavior of some in germany's public swimming pools has been far more concerning at outdoor pool in distilled or saw hundreds involved in a must brawl last weekend it started when a group of young men became embroiled in an argument with a family police to be cold and deployed pet the spray a witness described the scene there was a huge crowd of teenagers who were causing trouble around here they made man with
children cry police to escort the family away from the scene and authorities ordered that the pool be closed and said they didn't know too much about the identities of those behind the violence. colleagues described the group as african looking the incident and dissolute office fall from the only one to have taken place in germany in the last month here in lynn for help work out at the entry to a public swimming pool the place to be called there over in munich $150.00 teenage is rioted in the bavarian capital in western germany from a french fry stand so around 20 people involved in a brawl in which chairs and trash cans were used as weapons while gassing pack in a 23 year old man he required emergency surgery after being stopped following a dispute that began in
a swimming pool in stuttgart pepper spray was again deployed after another bus brawl in many of the incidents police found witnesses reported that those involved were from a migrant background leading to questions about integration that's nothing to do with else says the federal office for migration and refugees we have the wrong contact in relation to the facts below it is not the task of the federal office to comment on the situation in german out. your swimming pools with the warm weather set to continue for a little while yet police security will be hoping that while the curie rises tend to stay cool teacher all of. iran has told the u.s. that it shouldn't start a fire if it's not willing to deal with the consequences that's after don trump warned the islamic republic not to play with fire he was responding to tehran's announcement that it will increase production of low enriched uranium beyond the
limits imposed by the 2015 nuclear deal. sure. from july 7th on what's the level of enrichment will not be at 3.67 percent and you will know what to do you know what they're playing with i think they're playing with fire this thing for the u.s. to do correct it's mistake if washington is afraid of the word fine you can start on. the spot began washington withdrew from the nuclear deal and impose harsh sanctions on iran after a year of escalating tensions tehran now says it will no longer feel bound by the terms of the agreement iran and that's because other signatories including france germany and the u.k. haven't done enough to keep the deal alive our guest abraded who is really playing with fire here. well i really think that president to look him surfing in the mirror and see that he 1st to see this moral let alone defiant that he himself ignited with is irrational confrontation our policy toward iran
mr thompson is wrong is that he is hawkish advisers are wrong the u.s. is iran policy is we perform vice president joe biden the self-inflicted disaster iran violated the way on many occasions and it was only a stopping point on their ultimate desire to to enrich uranium to. develop a nuclear missile program and they continue to do it right after before and right after the signing of that agreement that agreement was never worth more than the paper was written on it's not nonsense it's absolutely true you know it and you're very skilled at the art of project obviously haven't read. your she has been doing 1515 i reports confrere ming iran's full compliance with this honor is obligations we did busy. you obviously haven't bothered to read even one single one
of them otherwise you would not say that iran has of a. 2016 new cleargreen 20 is not only at the orlando florida did one of the water for you know that the united states purchased every water from iran prior to mr trump tearing up that recursion right you're violating the g.c. for your way by continuing to produce its obligations you can lie on a vital interest on your i haven't even read the agreement i'm sorry sir you're due to 1st go and read listen iran is a riot it meant for you to show up on a t.v. show people of iran do not like the regime nobody outside iran likes the regime and you know one day it will fall that's not the stated policy of president trump but one day this regime will fall who are the ones that were minding the oil tankers in the gulf that was the who shot down the the the drone there was in international waters that was the rainy and illegitimate vulgar regime and all they
doing is is now that they're on their own a great deal of strain when they when they received $150000000000.00 in the wake of signing the g.c. p.r. way. is not a full blood pledge treaty it was just an agreement with president obama and president trump every legal right to withdraw from it and we came very close to get done just 2 weeks ago unfortunately the reason prevailed partly because of trump sudden discovery of iran's military and capabilities that even a limited strike could a snowball into you know all out warfare and all thing ulysses' allies in the end and hopefully that will serve as a wake up call to try and tool a step back from its confrontation a policy come back to the table that the us left unilaterally and you know resume diplomacy with iran because the us has a push right now is diplomacy and provocative one warmongering.
saudi arabia's latest effort to look more liberal appears to have backfired it top u.s. hip hop star known for her provocative style will be the key act in a major concert there shocking many. oh well it is going to perform saudi arabia. imagine waking up from a 3 year comma and the 1st thing. to be musical festival in saudi arabia i don't think i woke up in some parallel universe. she's going to go and shake
her all her songs are indecent about sex and shaking and then you tell me to where they are by and what hypocrisy while thousands of saudi women can't even get out to get their basic needs thanks to the saudi government the saudi government is bringing him in ash to show the rest of the world hey we are an open minded country . was. the crown prince how much insulin man has actually been trying to use kind of these stunts or these very superficial changes that are not organic to saudi arabian society at all or to what it means to be a woman in saudi arabia it is kind of a silly image to imagine that the women attending the human r. ce concert are actually fully failed and wearing full length ropes society doesn't really buy it they're not buying into this so-called attempt to modernize sort of
society in this way i think that this basically includes relates the problem with the rule of the crown prince of example to decide mission of hypotheses somebody who has made absolutely. no real changes during the entire time that he has been rudely as exact hudler of saudi arabia at the same time we all know about the scandal with questions you've asked your war on yemen oaklands of human rights abuses these are continuing that is attempting to do these very b.c. . of this gestures to kind of feed them a few of them to their local audience. iran has broken out between china and the u.k. over the former british colony of hong kong the territory has seen a large protest against beijing resulting in a rest and injuries one support for the demonstrators though has infuriated china as artist eventual success explains. the massive protests taking place in hong kong
these past few weeks over in the upper post extradition bill how from now spilled into an international dispute the u.k. or the formal colonial power of hong kong has openly voice that support for the protesters we should have a sense of all about home comb and we should have a specific sense of our obligations to the individual citizens of hong kong and that means speaking up about what's been happening it's up to the people of hong kong to decide what they think should happen in terms of their own government hong kong is not part of the united kingdom but the u.k. signed an internationally binding legal agreements in 1904 i think shrines the one country 2 systems rule in trying to the basic freedoms of the people of hong kong and we stand foursquare behind that agreements foursquare behind the people of hong kong and there will be serious consequences if that internationally binding legal agreements were not to be on it the sense of obligation towards the team a credit 6 future of the hong kong people was openly and widely supported by the
u.k. media as well london sense of how trying is an over its former colonial power was openly and supported and more encouraged when the hong kong colonial flake appeared in the legislative building which was smashed on monday some u.k. twitter users even went as far as calling for reagan if they cation or reclaim of their former british colony however though the chinese foreign minister is clearly not happy with the sudden increase of interest of london in hong kong off they are accusing london of supporting the lawbreakers in the city. showing them that you know the british won the freedom of hong kong residents is a shameless statement yet there's a whole i would like to ask mr hans what democracy hong kong had during british colonial you're going to come won't you the people of. did not even have the right
to march on the streets. that comments of course that not sit well with the u.k. government which went far as even to summon the chinese ambassador in response but whatever your view on the hong kong extradition bill is it's hard to take calls from british officials seriously just take for example the last the point of governor of hong kong he was neither elected nor chinese and just to give you a better understanding on what i'm talking about here are the names of the 5 past governors of hong kong under u.k. rule did you notice the trend moreover up until mighty 97 which was the last year that hong kong was under a rule no one will held under universal suffrage today coco's might indeed be fighting for its right spots it's not the former colonial power which should be weighing in on it when there's an element of wounded sovereignty with the british
criticism that the chinese want to make it clear this is sovereign chinese territory is the formal or want to help our not you still hold elections in the ramp on kong they're really not in your position criticised i think that's strictly . true it from the chinese of course it's hypocritical i'm sad to say that not only the british but the american and most other western governments you know hypocrisy should be part of their be official title of how they conduct their affairs how they deal with their human rights issues at home and then how they will use any pretext to support things like color revolutions this is perfectly fine from the point of view of this government i think of course there's a huge role. it's been 4 years since saudi arabia started a war on yemeni with the rebels who riad claims on tuesday launched a drone attack on a saudi airport injuring 9 cross border strike comes amid a worsening humanitarian crisis in yemen with starvation becoming ever more. widespread to warn you there are some disturbing images ahead according to the u.n.
sponsored world food program $20000000.00 yemenis are food insecure and half of them are on the brink of famine but despite that last month it partially suspended sending food to areas controlled by the hostess. the decision was taken as a last resort after a lengthy negotiation stalled on an agreement to introduce controls to prevent the diversion of food away from some of the most vulnerable people in yemen that decision sparked outrage in yemen and accusations of corruption these allege the food program is being used to achieve political aims. the world food program is no longer carrying out a humanitarian operation in yemen but it's sixty's have rather become purely political it is advancing the agendas of the u.a.e. so the revia and the us a key who think concern is that main donors to the food program are states fighting them or supplying the anti who think whole issue with weapons they also worry about
the collection of biometric data on yemeni citizens which is a condition of the aid supposedly to prevent theft there with these war and this information can be exploited by the saudi led coalition we spoke to antiwar campaigner jonathan shafi about the allegations. there's a great problem here which is that the war in yemen just like war through history is making money for a small number of people those who run the arms companies and so on when it comes to the question of yemen when it comes the question of how we bring a bit peace the 1st thing that we have to do is to stop the sale of weapons is to open up the channels to deliver food and other aid to the starved people of david stated yemen and to bring about a peaceful solution and so of course there is a need a dire need for food aid to get through and it seems to me that what's happening is that the request for by magick and for mission on 13000000 individuals yemenis
including military officers soldiers and so on that the fear is that handing that information over to the world food program let me end up in the hands of the saudi coalition the funding that goes to the world food program because of it coming from 7 of the sody coalition and because of the deeply complex picture that that they in pain us about we should pass no information may end up and about how that information may be used in a military fashion. why information has come to light about the underwater tragedy in northwestern russia in which 14 crew members died when the wrestler caught fire earlier this week russia's defense minister has now detailed where the place started. which person has to answer to the main cause of the incident has been established it was a fire and the battery compartment which then spread a little. the reactor on the vessel is completely isolated from the area has been
cleared of people the crew carried out all the necessary measures to protect the installation it is fully operational this gives us hope that we will be able to repair the vessel in a fairly short time. the atmosphere here in the city of moments because gloomy it's in the air it's in people's faces the expressions will be hard pressed to find a family here and moments without relatives say in the navy so this tragedy has struck everyone personally it has really affected people here over russia there are commemorative services being held in churches all over russia people expressing their condolences laying flowers we've had condolences pouring in internationally the pope has expressed his sincere condolences to those that died in this incident those that suffered in this unfortunate incident to raise it may the prime minister of u.k. of the u.k.
expressed her condolences as well what was especially striking about this unfortunate incident was that out of the 1414 sailors who died 7 of them of captains 2 of them heroes of the russian federation all professionals all high ranking decorated veterans of the navy we've learned about the incident itself as well it happened aboard a military deep sea scientific research vessel it was out in the barents sea off the coast of mormons conducting scientific research in the hydras field when a fire broke out and one of the compartments the crew acted professionally story they began fighting the flames they evacuated the civilian. representative that was onboard shut the hatch behind him in order to prevent the fire from spreading and consuming the rest of the submersible perhaps killing their colleagues the other crew members that survived and unfortunately they got the fire under control but
they perished juta asphyxiation. mariners acted heroically critical situation from a compartment that was engulfed in fire they 1st evacuated the civilian industry representative then close the hatch behind him to prevent the fire from spreading through. the head of russia's navy is now personally in charge of carrying out an investigation of the last 2 weeks and establish what happened how it happened and who was responsible for sailors who acted heroically heroically in order to save their colleagues and the vessel itself the submersible will be presented to the state on his flight to me putin is being kept up to date on the investigation itself and the state has promised to support all the support it can offer to the relatives of those who perished in this unfortunate tragedy. that's our global news
so. you saw me live there i mean yes seeing through that when. we have to go back. i think i acknowledged that. this fight fall says it's an indication of how important most movements are. so that it's also an indication of where the left must move towards we are definitely winning it because we have to. people they have people in power but we are in them
. join me every week on the elec so i'm sure i'll be speaking to us of the world of politics. i'm sure those. guys are this is the guys very poor we are going to maintain their san francisco great event put on by a big going magazine a lot of great speakers lot of great talk about that going on as it's fully embracing a new leg of its bull market very exciting action c.c.
yes well you know we're in our whole summer solutions beginning of that happening we're in summer we're into law it's all like happening and we have this remarkable tweet here and it's from another big player because you know this big move that we've seen a big client and it's still very volatile and you know you do your own research of course when whenever buying restacking sat's as they call it and never invest more than you can afford to lose but here is the latest movement in decline but what is quite apparent and has been discussed at this conference is that it's mostly institutional money this time around in 2017 it was all retail money it was the ordinary person out there like with a $100.00 or a $1000.00 in their name this is like the big institutions coming in and you can see that of the google trends you can see that there's very very few searches happening on how to buy that point nor anything to do with big plan so it's really an institutional money and here we have a tweet from c m b c which provides a little link to.
