2:01 am
election descended into name calling interruptions the 2nd round whoever that's now and down to the double trump contract it coronavirus. is joining us this sunday morning you are watching too quickly here on r.t. . there's been a week of deadly hostilities between armenia and azerbaijan in the disputed not going to come back region strikes have destroyed multiple buildings with conflicting reports on casualties throughout sunday morning 2 raid sirens have been heard in the disputed regions capital that follows a number of explosions over the night. friday a field hospital there was hit in a bombing raid several residential buildings were also badly damaged and earlier the emergencies ministry building was destroyed scoundrel te's house leaving

reporters also this week are still sees spill beyond the confines of the disputed territory when a border in your very town was bombed by john claims more than 2000 shells were dropped in that raid accu also says that since the start of fighting 19 as there is civilians have been killed in the conflict zone with 63 people injured. the conflict reignited last sunday but it has roots that stretch back more than 3 decades it is one of several border disputes still unresolved since the collapse of the soviet union in clave populated mainly by armenians broke away from massive eyes on in 1988 but the area's not been widely recognized as a sovereign state. the
2:03 am
1st. column and david we have only one condition that armenia leaves our lands completely and immediately this is file it if the armenian government complies with this the fighting will stop there will be no bloodshed there will be peace peace will come to a region. well i believe the armenian army can secure country and the self-defense forces of the golden corral box are successfully protecting their region from a political standpoint i believe it's very important for us that international partners know how and who started this military action a lot he's been on the ground in the conflict zone with his reports on friday shelling of the care about capital is it gets done. stepanek has come under
2:04 am
probably the heaviest shelling since we arrived here 2 massive explosions in the very center of the city usually what we could hear what we could see the smoke from the explosions which were on the outskirts in the suburbs this is the very city center and moreover this is the building of the ministry of emergencies so it has been obliterated i mean look look at this everything is gone windows are gone the whole wall there's a hole in the whole wall and it's not just this building there's a whole complex it's a large it's a large complex and it's everywhere like this obliterated not raised to the ground but it's gone i don't see any way how it can be fixed all renovated we don't know what we don't know what exactly caused the explosion but we didn't hear any sirens and sirens so probably wasn't a drone but some really heavy artillery and with a very long range as well but we have to go they are telling us it's not safe
2:05 am
because sometimes as the as there by johnnie's are using these so-called double tap so that they not only they destroy the building but also the kill soldiers who arrived here we've arrived here with the soldiers as well so we have to go this is the crater that was made by one of the rockets and this is a piece from a the military here is telling me that this is a 250 caliber 250 millimeter caliber so it is a massive rocket they don't know exactly what it is they're telling me these these are not laws but that this one is also israeli made. journalists and they're going to cut back also getting caught in the crossfire who were injured in a shell strike on wednesday including 2 french reporters they were airlifted to yet for treatment and have now been repatriated on thursday a cameraman from an armenian t.v. channel was severely injured during shelling from the as a village on the side these are pictures of his car. conflict is creating why the
2:06 am
geopolitical tensions france and russia have accused turkey of funneling jihadi militants from syria into the combat zone you've also alleges that and career along with back who is trying to continue the genocide of the early 20th century now the john though insists it's yellow band that seizing foreign mercenaries and also rejects the idea of any kind of direct military support from turkey or the senior correspondent right because the it has more well aside from an increasingly violent and volatile situation on the ground things that heating up on the diplomatic international stage and i would say at this point that they are boiling france now coming out with an increasingly hardline stance on what is happening in the region in this in this conflict and they are saying that they've come by the same intelligence as russia had that there are indeed syrian geologists mercenary fighters being transported and utilized by is headed by john in the fight against
2:07 am
armenia. today we have information with certainty that indicates that militants from the how does groups who left the field of competency really to rejoin the field of combat and care about it too has. transferred the nursery fighters from the middle east to the going to car parking area the information exists and it was presented in social networks and relevant publications previously turkey and said about john had vehemently denied that they were usually using utilizing syrian mercenaries and in the fight against armenia against catabolic but in recent days that lie has changed now they're accusing armenia of itself using our ng mercenaries under the guise of them being volunteers. there is much historic evidence for meaning of terrorists and mercenaries during the occupation of nagorno-karabakh and adjacent regions of their beach on their mini and leadership
2:08 am
continues this policy today mercenaries are pumped into the conflict zone disguised as volunteers according to our information about 4 families and militants have recently been deployed by turkey from syria to azerbaijan they are already fighting for azerbaijan they are trained in militant camps and then transferred weirdly calling its international concern doesn't quite do it justice there are very concrete fears that have taken root that this could be a runaway conflict the potential at escalation could be catastrophic because all these powers regional powers could be pulled into this war into this conflict irregardless of what they want russia for example with its security pact defense pact with armenia iraq making it know very well that it is tremendously concerned about syrian fighters mercenaries which it is 4th in syria now being flew to
2:09 am
its doorstep. just just to show al-qaeda they are france the united states and russia have come together in a comparatively rare feat addition to the joint statement calling for peace the turkey for one doesn't quite believe that that can happen if. the fact that america russia and from it's known as the minsk trio looking for cease fire in the face of these negative developments just because they have been equipped to this problem for nearly 30 years is unacceptable. turkey's position and to a lesser degree that of john is that there have been years decades of talks and they've led to nothing they've been completely fruitless the karabakh problem is still a problem the flare ups are still happening and they say this is not the time for peace this is a time to resolve this conflict by military means because all these talks have led to nothing and if we keep talking the conflict will keep escalating and unless the
2:10 am
underlying issue is resolved and that is who controls karabakh the problem will persist. another allegation being thrown out as a by john by armenia is the back using cluster munitions published photos to back up the claim and suppose john has not responded to the allegation both sides have made contradictory claims about casualties and damage inflicted releasing a string of videos to back them up. looks now at how this information has become one of the key weapons in this conflict. deception and full of military victories are as old as wolf heart south but in the digital age the dissent from ation can be tough charged the military propaganda machine of armenia which found itself in a stalemate after a series of successful hostilities by the us or by johnny army began a large scale provocation in the information space though the armenian side as
2:11 am
always presents old video of battles as new ones the goal was to present their failures to the population as successes the ongoing conflict in the want to care about is an example of how information is deployed just as powerfully and destructively as guns claiming victory can play as important a role as physically claiming territory it's all about the image you project so one surprise in that just as azerbaijan tried to discredit armenia as claims of success yet on shot off its own attack the enemy both at the front and in the information space is making its last efforts is running out of steam and therefore threw everything possible weapons into and even fakes and falls hoods over the past few days there has been a relentless stream of accusations from one side followed by denials from the author and this exchange of fire has made finding the truth almost impossible for example armenia says one of its su 25 warplanes was shot down by tucker's fighter
2:12 am
jet talkie and by john denounce this is law is on with no footage or i want to says it's one side's word against the others so was the truth but even when evidence is put forward the truth proves to be just as elusive the car back to finance ministry sit down and his hairy helicopter a photo of a burning helicopter into the ground is posted on social media a small victory is claimed it turns out the photo was actually of a helicopter shot down over syria back in february but it doesn't matter because people were. thought it was a sorry and that will stick as way john uses the same tactics to post about a successful strike bridge on his side did not publish any images of the strikes and they remain in positions of military equipment it turned out it was for those from the war in syria these videos were sad thousands of times and so without being the truth they become a version of the truth so we're letting this has this war of information become
2:13 am
that journalists have been put on high alert. is all members of the media in armenia and azerbaijan to not take part in the ongoing information war journalist should avoid being nation even when it comes from official sources journalists should never become soldiers in the information war one of russia's most famous authors once compared finding the truth to looking for gold he said the only way is faster wash away all that is not gold then you will find your shining nugget well when it comes to car but there's still a knot of sifting through the muddy river of misinformation to be done before we even get close to the truth. donald trump assured a video on twitter saying that the real target is still heard to he was moved to a military hospital after becoming infected with corona virus situation is cast doubt on his 2020 presidential campaign and his 2nd round debate with rival joe
2:14 am
biden the 1st clash well that was a chaotic of barber interruptions and insults with colleagues down hawkins and on court or discussed how it went. listen respectfully to each other's opinions i'm not here to call out his lies everybody knows he's a liar will never use the word smart with me ever use that word because you know what it is nothing smart about you joe what do you should excuse the one who so you are number 2 know he's putin's puppy i get my time back fewer interruptions i'm appealing to you sir to do that will get him to well frankly you've been doing more interrupting their cigarettes but he does plenty well less than you will he's just shush for a minute why do you do it all that i want in the last 25 years i because i'm going to do it because you are president things up you're a senator and the worst with resumes america is ever. going. to get any word with this clown directly then you know now that we're done we're done sir while
2:15 am
then the american people had big hopes for this debate after all that's happening on the backdrop of a global pandemic and a serious economic crisis but based on how both biden and trump conducted themselves i would say most people probably thought they were watching some sort of circus. you should get out of your bunker and get out of the sand trap and get in your golf course and fund what needs to be done now to save lives he wants to shut down this country and i want to keep it open. but i had closed the greatest economy in the history of our country we handed him a booming economy he blew it was it a loon. he already races you see the crime bill 1904 where you call the super predators african-americans the super predators you mention the american public had high hopes for this debate what's been the reaction so far while during the debate the moderator was able to get in
2:16 am
a lot of questions that the american people really want answers to how the next administration is going to handle coronavirus relief racism police brutality the social unrest but the most important thing of all is how. i didn't or trump actually respond to these questions and voters didn't seem to think that they did a very good job honestly this is a very painful response i don't think either them one this is terrible all around this is very upsetting to watch that this is the best representation for our country right now i don't think i can say that even if you were one i think it was a twister it was a wild ride it went right it went left there was a lot going on there was a lot of interruption it was crazy. to me that i don't think either one of them respected none of the other. and the economy seems to agree with those voters as well because right after the close of this chaotic debate we saw u.s. stock futures take a plunge and while both political camps have already started making political memes
2:17 am
as if they're their guy won the debate every day voters are really kind of taking a sort of i'd rather laugh than cry approach. we asked former republican state senator john loud and international affairs expert safina clinton for the thoughts on the 1st debate. there's little doubt that trump lost his composure as he was repeatedly interrupting and. seemed overly emotional and somewhat hysterical i was disappointed to see it in
2:18 am
decide to sort of stoop to that kind of behavior he tends to be very dismissive been to bully and in fact name call it's certainly not presidential it's not the kind of behavior that you really want to see in a candidate match or anybody watching had their minds changed except that i do i do see that i think biden's going to have some cleanup to do with the left flank it's inappropriate he just dismissed the president as a liar i would hate to see the count on how many times he said the president just lies without backing up and being specific about what was dishonest but american politics can be pretty contentious and i think american people sadly are kind of used to it. an f.b.i. film on the dangers of chinese intelligence from mint been branded cold war star
2:19 am
propaganda more on the story after the break. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race. be any dramatic developments only. exist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. everybody's reaching for that you have political powers as opposed. to russia and i think the resolution of this is there's going to be a nasty war that's going to go on for maybe months as john in an already rejected. must goes off to mediate because the fighting is too early on that people are now
2:20 am
battling to see what territory they can get and i think when the fighting settles down and the lines are drawn and people realize that they're not going to move forward or backwards then they're going to turn to the other players. welcome back alexina values vowing to sue after he was accused of working for the cia and then spokesperson made a striking claim after the russian anti corruption blogger and allege president vladimir putin plotted to kill. i claim that putin is behind the crime and i have no alternative versions of what happened i don't say that to flatter myself but on the basis of fact the most important fact is novacek the order to use a manufacturer it can only have come from 2 men the head of the f.s.b.
2:21 am
or of the foreign intelligence service the s.v.r. and western intelligence services are working with him in particular the cia we believe his accusations against the russian president are groundless and unacceptable his interview reveals that he thinks he's as important as the leader of a state with a real royals dad level are quite different people you know it's in the family made his allegation in germany spiegel magazine it was his 1st interview given since coming out of a coma i mean just over a week after being discharged from the berlin hospital that had treated him for nerve agent poisoning he thanked germany and anglo merkel for the help you see there and slammed the russian medics who 1st looked after him saying that they were worse than intelligence officers who killed people something that's left the doctor's son. meanwhile the international community is pressing on moscow to dig deeper into what happened russia though says it can only launch a criminal case if germany shares its evidence lin has refused to grant consular
2:22 am
access to the valley as well as to provide his test results and has directed moscow to the international chemical weapons watchdog at the open c.w. is being uncooperative telling the russians to go back and speak to the germans. but their excuses are completely contrived germany says it can't tell us anything and direct this to the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons but we've been to the a.b.c. w several times and they say talk to your with we're ready to talk to anyone we want not when in the absence of facts or we're pressured into giving an account of ourselves but on the basis of specific clearly formulated concerns with what we are always ready to have a professional conversation would go much allows the west to say they want to do that they believe. is actually hiding something here which it may be it may not be as well then of course there it's open to the west and many of those of course who work for the a.b.c. do we are sponsored by and supported by western governments we saw that very much
2:23 am
during the syria series of reports of the a p c w and produced that work for any i think neutral objective investigative work questionable at best shall we say but moving on to the only case it allows the p.c. debut and the west to call russia's bluff if that's what they believe is happening it will be interesting to see what the o.p.c. response to this is because they don't accept the invitation of course it can't stand as an organization as perhaps already come to a preordained conclusion. the f.b.i. has released a short film demonstrating the dangers of chinese intelligence recruitment the propaganda style video reminded many of methods used by the us and u.s.s.r. during the cold war hellebore been exploited. it's the latest hollywood thriller complete with a catchy soundtrack and
2:24 am
a script that keeps you on edge however it's meant to be informative it's not a feature film this half hour movie was created by the f.b.i. more knew about chinese intelligence and its efforts to recruit this is someone targeted on raven who may have sent classified information to chinese intelligence . like many blockbusters it's based on a true story a former cia officer was sentenced to 20 years in prison for passing along information to the chinese and the f.b.i. says that this video is meant to educate the public and alert them about the threat of foreign intelligence recruitment as this movie highlights foreign intelligence services are posing as head hunters and consultants and professional networking sites to aggressively target americans we believe it's critically important to
2:25 am
educate the public in order to need to as distress from foreign intelligence services well we've seen all those old newsreels talking about the red menace it looks like the propagandists are still in business years later trying. to buy i'm going to. play russia had occupied many new territories bringing additional millions of people under communist control. for example who only make 10. bridge american river road worker makes $10.00 a day more times more the used to say the chinese can't strike back they've got hollywood scenes of their own the. really awful what happens when. the amount of police on the line to the literal truth will come close. just listen to yourself and either the usa nor
2:26 am
china has actually declared a new cold war but everyone is buzzing about it and the issue of our cold war is here the foreign minister suggested it's not just our writings saying that is this a new cold war we've heard for example u.k. officials are china and the united states headed for a new cold war or is it going to be a hot war the un is even getting in on the hysteria or should we call it in a stealth we must do every scene for the new cold war. we are moving in a very dangerous direction own world cannot afford the future lead to too much as the economy is split the globe in a great fraction each with its own freedoms financial rules and the internet and not official intelligence capacities yes many of us heard stories from our parents about hiding under their desks in school during civil defense drills the cold war
2:27 am
has a special place in american history and now with dueling propaganda films and talk of a red menace from china it seems that the cold war is back the good old days well perhaps we've forgotten how potentially dangerous it is. r.t. new york. look at a bunch of other today tell me about with more now top stories in 30 minutes. as the u.s. economy was booming growing numbers of people were made homeless. you can work 40 hours in a week and still not have enough to get housing everybody believes america still is
2:28 am
the land of opportunity the reality of the we're not financial ecology and the lack of affordable housing for a living minimum wage gave many people no choice though that's been a problem with the city knows turn the temperature on a cold to stay way out almost. consider that there is no. records least the most vulnerable are abandoned on the streets to become the invisible comes. along while controls a part of it it's been almost 3 take instance the collapse of the soviet union and
2:29 am
the aftershocks of that geopolitical earthquake keep jolting because soviet space tourism promised in belarus followed by the alleged poisoning of an opposition politician in russia and now the renewed war between azerbaijan and armenia and while the 1st 2 house planks familiar actually use a tory rhetoric in both russia and the west the 3rd since your house. unfounded bell what's the difference i want to discuss that i'm now joined by that barry and actually most correspondent and editor in chief of b.n.a. in telling us that it's good to talk to you thank you very much for a time as a thanks for inviting me now this interview has an interesting backstory to it because i am i believe you're right grace approached by my colleagues from the r.t.m. hughes division who are sort of if i understood correctly at trying to place your views hint in that framing of the story in that case it was the promise of dollars and then when they found out it wasn't
2:30 am
a perfect date they didn't call back and i really mean it accurately that's my understanding is that i was called by a producer and they want to just soak. in the russia and the line and you've done a couple of features commentary pieces on the same line saying that she's and. that she's there as the western governments have recognized her as a legitimate leader latvians is going to fire a schooling have president elect whereas actually she has no legal standing and that she said we don't like in venezuela and the problem was was that that rang me sort of proof checks my own status before inviting me on and when i had made it clear that i don't think that the 2 cases equivalent and made clear that i was going to say no i do think she is just met.
