i. long for the weekly calls for a symmetrical response to new u.s. missile testing as tensions grow following the collapse of that control. fresh riot police use water cannon and tear gas against anticapitalist protesters close to the g 7 this week the demonstrators are demanding the world leaders take action to tackle poverty policy and also to tackle the destruction of the environment. here to fight against this capitalist rule the world we talk about the fight against quality but i think this is nonsense with. a dizzying display takes

to the skies with russia. taking for the big show. russia this is art international live from moscow with me kevin i just turned 11 am here and now i'm here for next 30 minutes so with our regular weekly news review of the last 7 days for you and 1st the russian president has ordered the country's military to prepare a symmetrical response to the united states testing of a previously missile us we can't. stress that moscow won't be drawn into a destructive new arms race with washington following the collapse of the control
4:02 am
treaty. i order the ministry of defense the ministry of foreign affairs and other corps offices to analyze the threat level created by the activities of the united states and to undertake comprehensive measures to prepare a symmetrical response besides russia is still open to an equal and constructive dialogue with the united states to recover trust and to reinforce international security the pentagon's test of a modified tomahawk cruise missile came just 2 weeks after the us decided to kill off the longstanding intermediate range nuclear forces agreement and that projectile would have violated that accord which banned the production of certain land based short and mid range missiles america's development of new weapons appears to be part of a broader attempt to counter a rising china just this month the us defense chief said he wanted to see missiles deployed in asia pacific region drawing the ire of both waging a moscow at the time with a look at the growing tensions in the weekend. that was quick only last month this ground law and smoking toy was illegal.
4:03 am
it's already wiping out makeshift targets off the coast of california just like that and the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty is now part of history so soon be ready to see those in different parts of the world the pentagon boss was even quick to say they want to start with the asia pacific but russia is already worried about a different part of the world to eastern europe right near the russian borders as you can see american officials have said they're launching busy systems in romania and poland are different from the m.k. 41 used in california well the russian government's not buying it. but the american still believe today's claiming that the ground based and kate fools who will no inching system was allegedly unable to launch tomahawk cruise missiles now
4:04 am
the fact of the violation is evident it is impossible to dispute it they themselves spoke about it and of course the question arises how can we now understand what will be located in remaining poland with the missile defense systems or missile strike systems sufficiently long range so why was the i.m.f. treaty signed by the u.s. and russian leaders more than 30 years ago so crucial to make sure that europe where nowadays america's nato allies and russia actually share a border doesn't turn into a vulnerable danger zone dotted with launch pads when following the test in california the u.n. security council convened this week the russian representative threw a question at european diplomats are you actually ready to find yourself in between 2 rivaling cruise missile arsenals. are you going to avoid responsibility for what is happening to future generations forgive you for this. russia's present actions are in line with a pattern of aggression the represents a clear threat to international peace and security of the russian federation
4:05 am
because the sole responsibility for the reason demise of the media was it would have been diminished do you not understand that by your responses to the americans you are returning to historical situation when missiles will target european cities from different sites. well so far most european states have a grade with the us line d.c. kept blaming russia for violating the i n f deal and that was exactly how they explained their own pull up there's nothing that russia can say or show to change the fact that russia has already tested the 9 and 79 cruise missile to ranges beyond 500 kilometers in violation of the i.m.f. treaty moscow's message has remained the same all claims that they were breaking the rules are a lot and on friday vladimir putin had a real go at the us government for what's seen in russia as completely twisting their reality in favor of uncle sam's ambitions to the worst of it is pretty
4:06 am
instead of fixing and an extent to situation and returning back to compliance with the treaty the americans of all castrated a propaganda campaign alleging violations by russia as is now clear this was just a smokescreen to hide washington's own breach of the treaty and its intention to leave it but this will leave 0 doubt about america's real intentions having got rid of the existing limits is now free to deploy previously forbidden missiles anywhere in the world as i said earlier though in the 1st place washington's thinking over a bold chess move in the asia pacific not that process far from that area either but it's clear want countries on the mind of strategists and the scene in the 1st place people in the trump administration yell that they will push back on beijing and. way they feel that they're running out of time i feeling that china is getting stronger and they need to act fast to provoke china
4:07 am
into some kind of military conflict all the things that involve china right now is really just a bigger is just a piece of the bigger picture of political tensions between us and china whether it's a trade war whether it's taiwan whether it's hong kong protests. elsewhere thousands of people are protesting against this year's g. 7 summit ongoing a video economies which is underway in beirut in the southwest of france. on saturday crowds march through the neighborhood turning with police using water cannons and tear gas demonstrations also took place elsewhere in the region to protest as a calling on world leaders to take immediate action to tackle growing inequality and also to prevent also a whole climate catastrophe. that much that people don't know we're here to fight
4:08 am
against this capitalist system that leads to so much destruction in so many levels there's a story but our new time here to fight against this capitalist screw the world to say we've had enough of the situation that's leading us to total destruction as a species as a culture and to the destruction of human rights because only i came here to protest against the g 7 and the policies of those countries' leaders it's ridiculous for the heads of 7 of the richest countries to clean inequality is the main theme of this for well at the same time we see how their own policies bring about inequality the company must like to make a republic 7 of the most powerful countries in the world have gathered only to divide the world's wealth between themselves we talk about the fight against inequality but i think this is nonsense as always for the past 45 years i have been going to this release and i could tell you that none of this summits have ever done anything good for ordinary people. shipping into the international aid organization . the g 7 nations of failing to address the growing inequality if i did
4:09 am
a new report it says that in the us the poorest 50 percent of the population own just one percent of the country's wealth germany in the u.k. are far behind either in the week john de oxfam's head of government relations about his organization's new research and to get a bit more from him. why do you think the g 7 don't work properly what are the main problems more widespread as well. so we think one of the kind of major barriers is how wealth is distributed between people across the world and in g 7 countries so that the 7 biggest economies in the g 7 hold nearly half the world's wealth and actually if g 7 leaders implemented a new tax a new wealth tax where they to tax the top one percent of richest people in g 7 countries an additional not point 5 percent on their wealth then it could raise over $200000000000.00 pounds a year now that's a huge sum of money that's enough to educate the $262000000.00 children across the

world who are currently not in school and also you to have enough money left over to put money into health care and to fund. enough health care to save the lives of $2000000.00 people orks firm argues that the tax systems in the g 7 countries are a key driver of inequality is they tend to favor the rich further it also goes on to say that governments that beholden to the interests of the super rich and shareholders of big corporations and those search are unable to adequately tackle environmental destruction. heard more from john date them. the do 7 has existed for quite a long time are these problems that the report has highlighted something new or where they there from the beginning we know that inequality has existed for for a number of years but actually under a lot of measures inequality is increasing. so oxfam's own research found. that inequality had increased over the last the last year and actually the wealth of
4:11 am
riches billionaires was growing while the wealth of the poorest half of society had fallen do you think that this oxfam report will have any impact on this upcoming g. 7 summit we hope that the g 7 leaders will take it seriously as you know it was a menu mccrone himself and g 7 leaders who decided to make inequality a focus of the g 7 so what we're doing is providing some ideas to how they might tackle inequality and help reduce poverty through tackling inequality and other headlines as we look back over the last 7 days poland joined the u.s. in criticizing germany for failing to meet nato as defense spending target calling on its neighbor doing crease its contributions and quickly that's despite the recent revelation the berlin has in fact been spending millions of euros more than previously thought on american troops stationed in germany or europe correspondent peter all of us got more. it's been a refrain of u.s.
4:12 am
politicians for quite a while now germany must spend more on its military under president trump that referring has turned into a crescendo now struck about germany i mean germany honestly is not paying their fair share do you think germany is doing enough to meet at the 2 percent target you know. what should germany do they should meet the goals that they agreed to we have 52000 troops in germany. and germany is not living up to what they're supposed to be doing with respect to later on the thing is though opposition politicians have requested from the finance ministry documents that show that actually germany has been spending more than was thought for the privilege of having u.s. troops in the country over the last 7 years germany's contributed 243000000 euros directly to the us armed forces for things like pension contributions and building
4:13 am
maintenance there's also being a previously unheard figure of 480000000 euros that's actually germany's contribution to the nato construction budget however the documents that were requested by the left party show this money went almost exclusively to u.s. projects the m.p. who made the request is far from happy about what's being revealed germany is a hop of global u.s. small flamm it's subsidized by the german taxpayer must be stopped at last a recent poll of german citizens found that 3 quarters of those asked didn't think they'd be any risk to their safety if u.s. troops pulled out of the country altogether germany's a more than op a $1000000000.00 for the privilege of having u.s. soldiers on its soil and not only u.s. soldiers but also nuclear weapons of mass destruction that the united states wrought here it dance the will of the german population we want both weapons out of
4:14 am
here fox is possible you are both gong. that all adds up to well no small chunk of change $723000000.00 euros that's gone almost exclusively to the united states to put that in the bit of context well that's more than the agriculture ministry requested to fight climate change with a reforestation programme it's about the same as the 10 year refurbishment plan for the natural history museum and it's almost as much as the annual budget of the german space program earlier this month the u.s. ambassador in suggested the u.s. troops could pull out and relocate to poland but the some here at the moment that seems more like a hope than a threat peter oliver r.t. berlin. to russia's state of the art aircraft groundbreaking aviation technology in the lead shift all coming up building the end of the russian capital especially out
4:15 am
of the max 2019 big old air show that takes place most years it's going choose day more a lot to come but in the preview to it our correspondent on one quarter climbed to the cockpit with some of those magnificent men in their flying machines. the russian team is preparing for an international aviation and space this is a major air show that's going to take place at the end of august and there's going to be there ted and pilots from countries all over the globe the pilots are going to be showing off their best and that's the bad and we were lucky enough to get invited onto a plane to join one of those pilots so i hope you're not afraid of. them
4:16 am
. but. after we returned in one piece our pilot constantine told us all about the international aviation and space so long. i have been training for more than 10
4:17 am
years and i've been in the pilot for 4 years the air show include the featuring aerobatics performance and the standard maneuvers championships rolls and loops etc the international tournament features competitors from. many european countries and known european countries including the us the year show is not a contest the contest happens at the championship with the aerobatics in other events so when the air show each group shows its skills and this big daters decide for themselves what they like of course we will show what we do best and what's more that a come in the week but to the present 70 minutes past 11 moscow time for the break then leaked silvio pairing to support claims that a powerful us oil and gas lobby group have been working to get the pipeline protest back.
4:18 am
you know world of big partners a lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. that's my life and you know i started out australia 40 years ago and i've been living in the luxury areas life of ever cheaper money ever since literally not having to work a day in my life because they assets bought it 40 years ago and i've gone straight
4:19 am
up. again league told it was a part of the reveal that a major us oil and gas lobby group helped craft legislation that criminalized. protests it was in response to demonstrations against the construction but then the pump was in north dakota and $62.00 which activists chained themselves to equipment you may recall those pictures we showed you the time protesters also started fires when authorities tried to remove them from the site with the late is no killam open . if you want to have big influence in washington d.c. and need to have a big lobby and that means you need to have big money meet the american fuel and

petrochemical manufacturers the f.p.m. represents all the big names in the energy markets koch industries chevron exxon mobil valero energy to name a few now the f.p.m. has been around since 1902 making sure that the voice of the ultra wealthy oil monopolists are not left out of the political process and it seems like their latest target has been protesters now the a.f.p. am has crafted legislation in $22.00 different states already passed in 9 states that would severely restrict the activities of political activists who might get in the way of oil pipelines and other profitable infrastructure in an audio recording obtained by the intercept the group's senior vice president discusses the strategy that they're using to criminalize protests. really well.
4:21 am
now the language of the riot boosting act is a little bit vague it could be a stretch to outlaw even thinking about protesting big oil companies. i . pad this is the only law that's been pushed by the 8 am and $28.00 team a $30000000.00 lobbying effort killed a carbon tax in washington state bigger cars means more gasoline and more gasoline means more profits for the oil companies the money and influence of big oil certainly outweigh the efforts of grassroots environmentalists everybody knows that in the united states of america if you want something you have got to pay for it and the oil industry certainly has all the means necessary. but r.t.

new york. for it is pretty sandra has broken his silence on his friendship with jeffrey epstein insisting he knew nothing is said of the convicted paedophiles illegal behavior to disgraced american finance he recently killed himself in jail while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges but despite the jukes attempt to put an end to speculation about the relationship he didn't explain why he continued to see epstein after the multimillionaire had served a sentence for soliciting prostitution from a minor. and no stage during the limited time i spend with him did i see witness or suspect any behavior of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction i met mr epstein in 1909 during the time i knew him i saw him infrequently and probably no more than once or twice a year i stayed in a number of his residences i've said previously that it was a mistake and an error to see him off his release in 2010 epstein's death has raised a lot of questions that i'm prone to the huge amount of speculation so much so that
4:23 am
is lawyers said they weren't satisfied with the coroner's findings and they say they plan to carry out their own investigation now one major question is why epstein was taken off suicide watch despite having attempted to take his own life.
4:24 am
and a more follow to u.s. attorney general william barton i was sacked the director of u.s. prisons following up steam suicide the former money manager was being held in a facility reserved for the most dangerous criminals alongside the likes of el chapo france's the notorious mexican drug baron we spoke to mark furnish a lawyer for the disgraced financier. the conditions to which he was subjected would go even the needs of the strongest among us it's this is one of the toughest federal pretrial detention facilities in the country and the conditions are inhumane epstein was subjected to conditions that were similar to those of guzman but not remotely justified by his character or what he was accused of because he was not. a violent individual like
4:25 am
chapo was alleged to have been he's not a guy who has escaped from prior facilities like guzman was alleged to have done. the real miracle is that we don't hear about these sort of things more about murdered pretrial detainees or suicidal pretrial detainees because the facility. is barbaric and it's a whole it's a it's it's like i don't use the word lightly lightly but it's sort of like an american go log for people who have not yet been convicted of anything. one doesn't want to treat the symptom while ignoring the disease and the disease is how people are routinely denied bail with a shocking ease given the laws that congress passed allowing prosecutors and judge
4:26 am
to do that. in a way just go reported to or more than 30 children in the south of france being dug knows with austin poisoning offer a flood back in october release toxic mud from a closed gold mine and no parents are worried that more children could be affected . in october 28th seen a wave flooded the entire school courtyard and carried away all the walls that were here after this the yard was covered with a layer of sedimentary mud and unfortunately 6 months later in april we unexpectedly found out that the level of arsenic was abnormally high then a team from the geological research office conducted an independent examination and said that now despite the conclusion of the previous team there are no more traces
4:27 am
of arsenic. on it eventually on grass we were worried day and night our boy had very strong symptoms but when the results were given to us at the hospital the doctors told us the symptoms were related to the levels of arsenic we're still at by did deference of tory's all the dust is simply swept under the carpet while there is more and more obvious evidence that there was a natural sanitary problem and. my son got arsenic poisoning at school and in the valley of or b l where everyone was a to risk of infection and especially my son because he suffered from their facts of the flooding and school yard.
4:28 am
loamy story sure to find it moral we're talking about check it out but that's the way some of the big headlines of the last 7 days looked as reported by us to you thanks for watching this program there moscow money is kevin 0 in join the rest of the week. what politicians do you should. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or some want to. have to go right to the press that's what i'm up for 3 in the morning can't be good . i'm interested always in the waters of how. this should.

4:30 am
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 racists going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with that it's because the people have less political power. which. of course.
