now. yeah we're back to. a. very good afternoon for russia this is our international live from moscow make ever known if the next hour with a regular weekly news review of the last 7 days 1st then the russian president ordered the country's military to prepare a symmetrical response to the united states testing of a previously banned missile last weekend they did stress that moscow won't be drawn into a destructive new arms race with washington following the collapse of the i.m.f. control 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
6:02 am
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 a longstanding intermediate range nuclear forces agreement the project would have violated that accord which banned the production of certain land based short of 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 him fired missiles deployed in the asia pacific region drawing the ire of both beijing and moscow with a look at the growing tensions in more detail in her in the week. that was quick only last month this ground law inched smoking toy was illegal.
6:03 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 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 believes rejected this claiming that the ground based m.k. $41.00 new inching system was allegedly unable to launch tomahawk cruise missiles now 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
6:04 am
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 have 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 in 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 because the sole responsibility for the reason demise of the treaty was it would
6:05 am
have been humans do you not understand that by your responses to the americans you are returning the 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.m.f. deal and that was exactly how they explained their own pull out there's nothing that russia can say osho to change the fact that russia has already tested the 979 cruise missile to ranges beyond 500 kilometers in violation of the treaty moscow's message has remained the same all claims that they were breaking the rules are a lawyer 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. is pretty instead of fixing and unacceptable situation and returning back to compliance with the treaty
6:06 am
the americans have orchestrated a propaganda campaign alleging violations by russia as is now clear this was just a smokescreen to hide washington's own breaches of the treaty and its intention to leave it 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 brush is 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 need to push back on beijing and a hard way they feel that they're running out of time feeling that china is getting stronger and they need to act fast to provoke china into some kind of military conflict all the things that involve china right now is really just
6:07 am
a bigger is just a piece of the bigger picture of political tensions between us and china whether it's the trade war whether it's taiwan whether it's hong kong protests. oh swiss story going on cross that we can then see companies protest giving on the way for a 2nd in the southwest of france as world leaders meet full the g. 7 summit in the result of the ritz at least 1000 demonstrators to the new birth city of bones calling for action to tackle poverty to talk human quality and to talk of the destruction of the environment. police used tear gas some water cannons to disperse the activists some of whom were throwing stones at the offices there was also another protest along the border between france and spain which passed off peacefully demonstrators say that with the will focus on the g. 7 they hope their calls for economic justice will be heard. that much that even
6:08 am
we're here to fight against this capitalist system that leads to so much destruction and so many levels. but i look around here to fight against this capitalist rule 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. 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 claim inequality is the main theme of this forum well at the same time we see how their own policies bring about inequality because when the most academically 7 of the most powerful countries in the world have gathered only to divide the world's wealth between themselves they 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 rally and i could tell you that none of this summits have every done anything good for ordinary people chipping in to the international aid organization oxfam that's also accused the g.
6:09 am
7 nations of failing to address growing inequality in a new report in fact it says that in the u.s. the poorest 50 percent of the population only just just one percent of the country's wealth and it seems that germany in the u.k. are not father figure either in the way jacqueline vargas spoke to john date oxfam's head of government relations about his organizations new research out 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
6:10 am
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 people. whole industry and the us in criticizing germany for failing to be nato defense spending target calling on its neighbor do increase its contributions and quickly is despite the recent revelation the berlin has in fact been spending millions of euros more than previously thought on american troops stationed in germany and europe correspondent peter all of the picks up the story. it's been a refrain of u.s. 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 the 2 percent target know.
6:11 am
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 u.s. armed forces for things like pension contributions and building maintenance there's also been 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 parties show this money went almost exclusively to u.s. projects the m.p.
6:12 am
who made the request is far from happy about what's being revealed germany is a hop of global u.s. small flamm it 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 here fox is possible you are both. well no small chunk of change 723000000 euros that's almost exclusively to the united states to put that in the context. more than the agriculture ministry requested to
6:13 am
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 at the gym and space program earlier this month the u.s. . suggested the u.s. troops could pull out and relocate to poland but the some here at the moment it seems more like a hope than a threat. hope is a clear skies this week state of the break in aviation technology that lead to ship coming up excitement building in the russian capital ahead of the big. show which gets going choose day and talk in a clear sky is good news and for a correspondent on one quarter he climbed into the cockpit for nearly preview with those magnificent men in the flight machine.

6:15 am
of the. line but more people in the world people 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 years and have been in the pilot for 4 years the air show include the mock scott featuring aerobatics performances and the standard maneuvers that championships rolls and loops etc the international tournament features competitors from many european countries and none european countries including the us the airshow is not a contest the contest happens at the championship with the aerobatics and other
6:16 am
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 new it more that can choose the most bugs in the present league told c.e.o. pays to support claims that a powerful us oil and gas lobby groups who are working to get pipeline protests back and tell you more when we come back.
6:17 am
join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm showbusiness i'll see that. again this is us international so as mentioned just for the break their legal d.-o.
6:18 am
is apparently revealed that a major us oil and gas lobby group helped craft legislation that criminalized anti pipeline protest or response to demonstrations against the construction of a pipeline in north dakota 2016 you may recall these pictures at the time we covered it during which activists chained themselves to equipment protesters also started fires with authorities tried to remove them from that site with more on the latest twist in this thing caleb maupin. 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.t.f.
6:19 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. with. the. 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.
6:20 am
now this is the only law that's been pushed by the a p m $28.00 teen 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 effort. 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 this made headlines in the week as well britain's prince andrew now breaking his silence on his friendship with jeffrey epstein insisting he knew nothing of the convicted paedophiles illegal behavior the disgraced american financier recently killed himself of course in jail while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges but despite the jokes attempt to try to put an end to
6:21 am
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 have said previously that it was a mistake and an error to see him after his release in 2010 emcees death has raised a lot of questions and prompted a huge amount of speculation so much so that his lawyers said they were not satisfied with the coroner's findings no and further they said the plan to carry out their own investigation one major question is why epstein was taken off suicide watch despite having attempted to take his own life.
6:22 am
on a more for us attorney general william barr sacked the director of u.s. prisons following epstein suicide the former money manager was being held at the facility resume for those dangerous criminals alongside the likes of el chapo they notorious mexican drug baron we spoke to mark furniture
6:23 am
a lawyer for the disgraced financier. the conditions to which he was subjected would buckle even the knees 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 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.
6:24 am
is barbaric and it's a whole it's 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 to do that. 24 minutes past the time for i leave you for now going to go to hong kong live pictures and they have trouble again clashes erupted again in hong kong with sunday as the city's the pro-democracy protests come paying continues riot police that currently firing tear gas an attempt to disperse the crowds that demonstrate is that you can see these are the laser pens going to the police as

6:26 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy to confront ation let it be an arms race and if he's on offense very dramatic development only closely i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical of time time to sit down and talk. you know world of big partisan. lot and conspiracies 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 for watching closely watching the hawks. paradise with some
6:27 am
ground turned into a round the experimentation field but 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 and suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments that often in day you have many of these people who have 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.
