10:30 pm
dart there's no stopping. the storm starting to people south on t.w. . it is the number one killer the number one non-communicable diseases that we are trying. the british parliament and the u.s. congress both want the c.e.o. of facebook to testify in a growing data scandal today mark zuckerberg reportedly said yes to washington thanks but no thanks to london plus more russians being shown the door nato joins europe the u.s. and canada by expelling russian diplomats suspected of being sponsor i'm from
10:31 pm
berlin this is the day. our actions reflect the serious security concerns expressed by all our allies russia does not share our interest or of aliens. this is a clear message to russia but there are costs and consequences for it's unacceptable i'm dangerous path on all behavior and it follows lack of construct a response to a cup and insults brooke this is an attempt to sow discord among our people to divide allies and to destabilize democratic institutions we cannot and we will not tolerate this. also coming up cambridge analytic says it did not use data harvested from fifty million facebook users today the
10:32 pm
whistleblower who used to work for cambridge analytic a told british lawmakers you were lied to. i think now that it is on its head to your committee were exceptionally misleading. and frankly i would i would say not only if they invite it which is honest. we begin the day with that list of russian diplomats told to go home and the countries in the organizations showing them the door and yet a nother show of solidarity with london after the nerve agent poisoning of a former russian spy on british soil nato today announced that it will reduce its russian mission by a third seven staffers are being expelled and three pending accreditations requests are being rejected nato joins twenty seven countries on both sides of the atlantic in what has become the largest ever collective expulsion of russian diplomats the nation's include britain the us germany you see australia there and many other e.u.
10:33 pm
member states relations between nato and moscow were already strained over russia's involvement in syria and the annexation of crimea from ukraine back in twenty fourteen we have more tonight in this report. with nato joining the expulsions of russian diplomats the alliances secretary general said moscow had it coming. this sounds a clear message to russia that there are costs and consequences for it's unacceptable and dangerous putting on all behavior the crisis started on british soil with accusations that moscow was behind the poisoning of a russian double agent in salzburg earlier this month the british foreign secretary calls the expulsions a turning point. what will seem in these huge diplomatic expulsion is a desire to correct that and to say right russia enough is enough. russia denies
10:34 pm
having anything to do with the poisoning and insists the u.s. is coercing other states to join its lead. or the we will do this or that country tells one or two diplomats to leave well whispering apologies into our ears. we know that this is the result of colossal pressure colossal blackmail which is now unfortunately the main tool of washington on the international arena to live this little. band on the streets of moscow people also express belief their country is being victimized and the americans are against us and they're trying to crush us so that our country will not develop and will not become even stronger but come with an irony we don't have the influence of other countries like the united states developed european countries but at least to sit on the present day russia's
10:35 pm
relations with the west are clearly are nice and a thaw may be a long time coming. correspondent terry shoals was at nato headquarters for that announcement from mr begg she joins me now from our bureau in brussels good evening to you terry so we've got seven russians expelled three accreditations request rejected how will this hurt vladimir putin and the policies that the west has condemned. that remains to be seen because as you've heard russian diplomats say they are denying that this is going to hurt them even as it's very clear that they are surprised as constantine von eggert said earlier at the unity that both european union governments and nato governments have shown and that's what nato secretary general stolzenberg said today he said the same that he thinks moscow has been surprised by the unity and what i found very interesting in his comments was
10:36 pm
his mention specifically of the fact that downsizing the russian mission here by a third he says will hurt russia's capability to do intelligence work in those countries where it's been expelled now it's not a very diplomatic thing to say that representatives of another country are spies but this was clearly what stoltenberg was alluding to in his comments this afternoon you know this is an important point and we know that russians are already working at nato headquarters but even before today's announcement they were being killed on a tight leash if you will tell us about that. yeah not as tight as some would like to see but yes in fact there is a russian mission inside nato premises and i've covered the building for so long that it doesn't surprise me anymore until today i got so many questions why does russia have you know a representative mission inside inside nato's nato to nato territory inside nato
10:37 pm
headquarters it does sound surprising now now that i think about it so what this will do is is further restrict the number of people who can work there after the annexation of crimea in twenty fourteen nato told russia it had to downsize this mission from fifty people to thirty people so that was a pretty big cut now today they've told them they need to reduce it even further from thirty people to a maximum of twenty people so that means much fewer people working here and in fact already only the nato ambassador post which is they can at the moment the deputy ambassador and to support staff or even allowed to walk around an escorted and that was a big change after crimea because before then the russian diplomats could mingle with everybody else in the cafeteria in the hallways wherever they wanted to be now it's on a on a very tight leash even including the the communications people when they want to meet with with journalists they need to be escorted to see us in the press area so
10:38 pm
. there was no change in those rules today it would be hard to restrict that further but yeah you won't you don't see them wandering around nato headquarters anymore today the u.s. speaker of the house was in the czech republic if you spoke to parliament they are about the russian threat to take a listen russia has violated its international norms with its aggression against our closest allies in eastern europe. more furtively it spreads this information and engages in cyber attacks and medals in democratic elections throughout europe as it did in the united states solidarity on this front tira freedom is more important than ever it's everything really so here you've spent years covering the nato especially its expansion into eastern europe what do you make then of paul ryan speaking to the czech parliament about russia i think those are some
10:39 pm
very clear terms coming from washington about the conclusions that they finally come to on russia's intentions to to meddle in foreign policy here in europe and in elections as well and as in the united states again i think it remains to be seen what kind of effect these expulsions will have on russia's intention of making things right with this all very attack nato and other countries have said they haven't shown any constructive attitude in trying to resolve this case however that may may come out but i think that this this intense momentum of pressure on moscow may finally bring a change the biggest explosions we've seen since the biggest number of explosions we've seen since the cold war so yeah i think if anything is going to change the kremlin tactics this may be it yeah i mean it is a president what we're seeing and you have to wonder if the whole scheme of things what nato did today this announcement is it more symbolic then substantive i mean
10:40 pm
reducing your mission there by a third is it going to really handicap espionage. i don't know if the purpose was specifically to handicap espionage because most russian espionage is not the most likely done out of missions like this but it does send a signal as secretary general stolzenberg said that all these countries are united and that's not an easy thing to do you've got eastern european countries like hungary. sometimes greece not being so on board with with taking a harsh stance on russia so i think again this this it is surprising to a lot of your putin and he may well have to change the way he does business it wouldn't be nato by itself just like it wouldn't be the u.k. by itself it wouldn't be the u.s. by itself but this incredible wave of expulsions of the recall of the e.u.
10:41 pm
ambassador perhaps all this together may change the way the kremlin is doing the way it handles other countries we have to see you never know with the truth you never know our correspondent teri schultz tonight in brussels as always terry thank you very much it's a pleasure to be with you well still ahead on the day between a nigger in sorrow russian parents demanding answers after a fire in a siberian shopping mall at least sixty four people died most of them were children and they may have been trapped in soccer. i think these two are mine i guess we could identify my children with them because they suffocated by five of the most other children that were brought had only half of a head was if they were here without hands and legs. or will the c.e.o. of facebook ever testify over what has become the biggest crisis in the company's history tonight there are reports that mark zuckerberg has agreed to testify before
10:42 pm
a u.s. congressional committee perhaps next month click like for washington you can click don't like for london today zucker berg rejected a summons by the british parliament to speak on the record now if sucker burge won't talk others will yesterday facebook europe's executives were here in berlin for a meeting with germany's justice minister the take away from that face to face regulation of social media will soon be a reality and now the european commission is asking facebook's c.e.o. sheryl sandberg to answer questions over the alleged harvesting of data of more than fifty million facebook users the e.u.'s justice minister has given sandberg to we still respond to his series of questions for example have either you citizens been affected how will facebook inform authorities and users and how is facebook
10:43 pm
planning to prevent a repeat in the future well one person is answering lots of questions about the data scandal the whistleblower christopher wiley the former employee of the u.k. data mining company cambridge analytic today he testified before a u.k. parliamentary committee and he told lawmakers that cambridge analytical is data research may have violated u.k. campaign finance laws and may have helped sway the outcome of the brics that referendum. our next focus is building carrie he is the public face of the world's biggest social network but mark zuckerberg isn't feeling sociable when it comes to taking questions especially not from european politicians. as inquiry's mom to face big news is the data of its two billion users he told this british parliamentary committee he would not be giving evidence we believe given the serious nature of the allegations that have been made around the access and use of
10:44 pm
facebook user data that is appropriate the most should give evidence to the committee. one man who did want to talk with the pink haired whistleblower at the heart of this data scandal just as he said it was the race for the white house that made him go public she don't chung kind of makes it clicking your head that this actually has a much wider impact so i don't think that the military commission operations is conducive for any democratic process whether it's a us presidential or a local council or its political campaigns have changed christopher wiley what does a deal to engineer for london based cambridge on a letter the firm boasts of its ability to when elections on the cheap smart in twenty fourteen they paid for millions of facebook profiles and are accused of using them to build psychological programs to micro target voters right moment is more important than ever and this is where cambridge analytical in our revolution
10:45 pm
and help them swing votes in elections around the world including donald trump they deny using the data to break down voters the company's co-founder disputes that claim. it is categorically untrue categorically untrue that it came in general has never used facebook data. it is one silicon valley billionaire who could surely shine a light on this and many other questions. are and i'm joined tonight here at the big table by alexander fanta he's a reporter for net org he covers data protection the power of big tech alexander's good to have you on the show your bio on. the website in the all that he describes you as a journalist who writes about the digital community and its enemies are cambridge analytical and facebook are they now in the mes of the digital community it's two different things really isn't it because cameras and if you could clearly took user
10:46 pm
data and use it for me to put it manipulative and wrong purposes so i'd say do. you know at least an enemy of the public sphere but with facebook it's more complex because facebook has connected millions of people around the world it's a big company to the used by two billion people are you going to say they're all wrong you know i'm personally facebook user did a good thing at first right everyone was happy to find people they hadn't seen in years for example but still facebook has privatized a large part of the public sphere and a lot of the public debate we're having is on facebook which they control and they have made us into a lab rats of their noble scheme for selling advertising and i think that is worrying and it should worry everyone lab rats i mean that's quite an indictment there what do you make then of mark zuckerberg agreeing to testify before a us congress congressional committee and saying no to a british parliamentary committee well i think that shows that general approach to these kind of things mike huckabee is aloof he doesn't care about who tries to
10:47 pm
regulate it how they showed quite the same approach in germany and many other european countries they've been giving legislators boilerplate statements and have not really responded to many of the judges made today and this last scandal is just the tip of the iceberg really isn't it you know i mean do you think that's what it is it's just do you think it's arrogance that's motivating him when he's making these are decisions that could make or break the entire company thirty something guys who think the demasi is the universe and obviously they think they are above me judge they this in some niggling european country of we had data protections than it's they think they can do that. you tweeted yesterday i'm going to quote this we have to be very clear about this every business model based on data is innovation i followed the milkman on his rounds and sold the addresses to the newspaper boy my i.p.o. was next month hash tag what's good for data is good for america explained that was always the old g.m. slogan the last bit but what i meant with that is that we missed it is
10:48 pm
a misunderstanding we think that everything everyone who tries to harvest and sell personal data is some innovative genius it's not the case many of these business model a very conventional there only innovative in a very sense that they have invented new ways to flaunt regulation and fullest so in other words what they're doing is. it's old business they're just finding ways to get around the rules basically that is the case if you look at how companies like it b. and b. all have systematically neglected to make their users comply with national legislation that is i mean that is just astounding do you see the european union's new data protection law which comes into effect in may do you see that as the answer to the regulation of social media i think that is a very good start but you have to consider it as the second very important law that
10:49 pm
is being discussed the privacy directive which is supposed to be alongside the big data protection act and it has not been posited it's been in fee is legislative battle around that and i think we should really. look at what big data protection legislation is ahead there because we have to protect users from being tracked the data being sold indiscriminately by these companies and we have a long way off what needs to be done now that we know. about cambridge analytic and facebook i think there's really a couple of steps we need to take first is to protect people's privacy the second is to make sure they have better ways to to conduct business online i mean we had we don't that we had don't have sufficient noncommercial or even public alternatives to many of these services these companies provide and i mean i see no reason why you know all email providers or an old messenger providers should be private companies the government like the postal system perhaps perhaps perhaps
10:50 pm
it's a noncommercial tentative that is under public control but not controlled by the state is that interesting from this and we'll see if you know if it comes to fruition alexander fanta with nets policy thought we're going to think very much for being on the day thanks jeff. a tonight's in russia anger is mounting over the shopping center fire in siberia that killed sixty four people forty one of them were children president vladimir putin visited the scene today and blamed the high death toll on what he called criminal negligence but many are accusing the authorities of a cover up. this fire has done more than scorch what was once the chemical shopping center. it stirred intense anger here over alleged negligence corruption and lax fire safety standards many people here also don't believe the death count
10:51 pm
officials are giving they think there could be more victims. might these two are minor i guess we could identify my children with them because they suffocated by five of the most other children that were brought had only half of a head was that they were here without hands and. it was. when the blaze and gulf the mall the fire alarm didn't sound like a question investigators say it hadn't been operational for two weeks. as people try to flee they found many emergency exits blocked there are reports children were left locked inside stuff led investigators also say the public address system had not been switched on. a lot of. irresponsibility of the management and it could not imagine if the scale of the tragedy would be this speak up and most of all i am shocked that they are hiding the truth from us the mulch with the. two days after the tragedy and amid criticism for its slow response the
10:52 pm
russian government announced a day of national mourning president putin visited kemah the protesters to trust in a transparent investigation of the. one hundred investigators are working on this case they'll inspect the whole chain starting with those who gave commissions and finishing with those who must have been in charge of the security forces. but many still searching for loved ones are mistrustful of the government's promises volunteers across the city are distributing their own lists of those missing scores of names have been added most of them children. oh she is one of those people that we can all look up to jane goodall the british. she moved to east africa in one nine hundred sixty to study chimpanzees and became the world's foremost expert on their social life and behavior
