you watching in the weekly here on r.t. international with mina david today this is all round up of the top stories over the last seven days on the latest up to date news welcome to the program. syrian rebel fighters have shot down a russian jet in syria's province and then killed the pilot and verified video of the incident has been posted online by the militants. a lot of work. good you better there's a. little bit of out of your nose. and second video has also surfaced online reportedly showing the rebels pose. with
the dead body of the potus and a warning hey you may find the following images upsetting the clip is one of the minutes is taking a selfie thanks to the victims of those also taking pictures and challenging. has more on the incident. the incident took place in the northwestern village of musser on an province and that's one of the last remaining rebel strongholds in the country now according to the russian defense ministry the pilot did manage to eject from the plane and pair showed it down to the ground in an area that's actually controlled by the terrorist group. he was then subsequently killed in a fight with terrorists again that's coming from the russian ministry of defense they also added that it's believed that a anti-aircraft missile system was actually used in the downing of the plane and very quickly after the attack took place videos and photos surfaced online most of them very graphic and disturbing showing rebels taking photos of the dead pilot and stomping on the debris of the crashed plane now. of the group that has claimed
responsibility of the tax say that they are part of the moderate opposition free syrian army but it's widely believed that they are in fact actually allied with the latest incarnation of they have in the past enjoyed support from washington even received weapons from the u.s. at this point russia did react quite quickly and has already carried out a number of persuasion strikes in the area with the ministry reporting that over thirty militants were killed as a result the u.s. tonight is it supplies any surface to air missiles to its partners in syria the weapon used to shoot down the russian jets according to moscow. friday saw the release of a controversial memo in the u.s. that had donald trump meeting plenty of resistance in washington the document alleges that the f.b.i. and justice department abused their powers to secure a warrant to spy on trump's election campaign and the declassified memo is put the investigation into trump's links to russia in doubt here's how the mainstream media
reacted put your watch there is north koreans goosestepping and why yes the same smile on their faces everything is they revere the republican party is so much like that people need to start taking it to the streets this is a dictator this is a tipping point for our democracy are we going to be a democracy after today or is this going to be demagoguery and despotism in my outlines the warrant was used for surveillance of a former trump eight and it was granted using a highly controversial dossier allegedly funded by the democratic party and clinton foundation and the f.b.i. is accused of not revealing the bias behind the document. the f.b.i. extended the warrant on three separate occasions and the contradicting testimonies of the f.b.i.'s former chief and deputy director and twenty seventeen have left many questioning whether the agency has become political i think it's terrible you want to know the truth i think it's a disgrace what's going on in this country i think it's a disgrace the memo we sent to congress it was declassified congress will do
whatever they're going to do but i think it's a disgrace what's happening in our country and when you look at that and you see that and some of the other things what's going on in a lot of people should be ashamed of themselves and much worse than that caleb maupin takes a look at what this means for american politics. if indeed the obama administration used the department of justice and the f.b.i. to spy on trump during the campaign this could be quite a scandal it would discredit the d.o.j. of the f.b.i. as nonpartizan a law enforcers and destroy the democrats now the democratic leadership doesn't want to be destroyed so here's a few of their last ditch efforts to keep their boat afloat. now adam shift from the democratic side of the house intelligence committee says the republicans edited the document to fit their political agenda he says he's
preparing a memo of his own that will expose the misleading character of the document. that the f.b.i. says that they haven't been given sufficient time to review the document and they have grave concerns about the facts that have been removed from the memo as expressed during our initial review we have grave concerns about material emissions a fact that fundamentally impact the memo spec you receive. the. democrats say the document was altered before the president saw it they say that these changes were made without their knowledge. discovered late tonight the chairman news made material changes to the memo he sent to the white house changes not approved by the committee the white house therefore reviewing a document the committee has not approved for release however some of these changes are aimed at the request of the democrats and the f.b.i. themselves others included minor edits and grammatical fixes.
but. now leaving house democrat nancy pelosi says that releasing the document poses a significant threat to national security intelligence is that it's the cia that d.n.a. at the end i the. national defense everybody has their element of it and sources and methods and i. protective. and it never hurts to throw russia into the mix is it possible that the republican chair of the house intel committee has been compromised by the russians as a possible nuclear shadow russia the agents running the house intel committee on the republican side i hope that's not the case i mean is this behavior speak of that though i mean i'm not the first person who's raised this he's behaving like someone who's been compromised this whole big stir is over just for pieces of paper but those four pieces of paper contain vital information information with potentially enough voltage to light up washington d.c.
for months if not years. r.t. new york. woman cia analyst and with john kerry says this follows one f.b.i. have been doing to get. this contains some troubling evidence of f.b.i. malfeasance those of us who are critics of the f.b.i. have been saying this for years this is how the f.b.i. does business they do it jester officiously they do it by stabbing people in the back they do it by setting people up by entrapping them by tricking them and that's exactly what they did with the price of court they played the face of court judge by not telling them the source of this deal they plead that judge by not telling them that this was a partisan. report and and they got their warrant they got their warrant any way. than the court of arbitration for sport overturned the lifetime bans of twenty eight a russian athlete on thursday and reinstated their such
a in impacts results they were part of the doping scandal dating back to the twenty fourteen with russia can to widespread substance abuse eleven other athletes also had bans from me but will not compete at the upcoming games in south korea gas arbitrators unanimously found that the evidence put forward by the i.o.c. in relation to this matter did not have the same weight in each individual case this is why in twenty eight cases the evidence collected was found to be insufficient to establish that's an untied upping rule violation was committed by the athletes concerned. this does not mean that these twenty. innocents but is due to insufficient evidence the abuse of the sanctions and old individual results achieved in such reinstituted team russia dog
the judgment was swift and he immediately became gospel for much of the olympic world ever since the infamous report on doping in russia saw the light of day but its claims of a state sponsored conspiracy the pretext for the ban have been shaken to their very foundation in the last few days bombshell one. twenty eight russian athletes make a comeback from a lifetime ban over the past few years the international olympic committee unleashed to the ultimate punishment on them following a damning verdict they cheated the tests it seemed that their dreams careers and lifetime goals were annihilated in one stroke but last thursday the top sports court had a different opinion on that the ban was no more those stripped of their medals got them back the i.o.c. was both red faced and furious its members see the thing with bitterness and
resentment but all things considered the i.o.c. had some trouble standing beside their initial ruling a lot of people asking hell the i.o.c. got the brief so wrong that they were able to throw it out so quickly. well let's let's let's you can look at the decision but let's let's see who will be competing here in the games coming up then we can have this conversation again the embarrassment is understandable the court of appeals decision to reverse the ban was among other things based on the testimony of the very same people who convinced the i.o.c. to impose the sanctions in the first. place the mclaren report didn't find any individual violations of the rules of individual sports meant because there was only a very limited time the team of mr mclaren have fifty seven days i think bomb showed to. the russian paralympic team also had its very decided this week
two years ago the doors of the summer games in real were slammed in their faces a blanket ban meant no one was welcome this february a team of almost eighty people will have a shot at the pyong chang golds as so-called neutral athletes are not great but it's something russians are regularly tested and they're amongst the most scrutinized after it's in the world. and the discipline vision of while we now have a greater confidence that the anti doping system in russia is no longer a compromise and corrupt and given the latest winning streak for russia those athletes who have cleared their names in all likelihood will up their game eager zone of. it was an emotional day for the russian athletes involved you can see the reaction of one cross country skier. after the verdict was announced many more
russian athletes were in high spirits as previously they believe that their dreams and careers have been dashed. boiling something you know i found out about the decision during my training c.a.'s decided to overturn my disqualification my ban i had only positive thoughts in my head about that i've been ready to ski for a long long time keeping up my training but i had a question right away what about the olympics are we able to dispute this and get an invitation but you know i was waiting for the results of the appeal when i came back from practice it's amazing news then my skeleton team started congratulating each other it's such a relief we're not guilty in the whole public will know that a lot of people thought we date only those close to us knew it's not true. because i've been training with my push for the whole season and now because of what's happened i've been paired with someone else we'll have to adapt our techniques and make adjustments for way differences and work
a lot in our start. give you some of my mojo is for me and for those who can kind of there the whole situation has only me me angrier and even more determined to win . or you say they are not guilty or you say they are guilty and they have proved that there is not enough proof for a doping offense hence they are not guilty and this is very important also because it makes the mclaren report to become not in a basis which is enough to convict athletes and every seeing that was. up to now was based on the mclaren report and if this is now not basis enough to convict at let's then i do not understand why also all the russian at plates could have been banned collectively without having any any proof of the
will be back in a couple of minutes after this break. everybody stephen ball. hollywood suspects. proud american first of all i'm just george bush in our view to substance this is my buddy max bemis financial guru she's a little bit different. you know in those up with all the drama happening in our country and she laughs. every day americans. closely start to bridge the gap this is the great american.
you criminalist released by the white house into an institution those included on the list are accused simply by association. being from russia or is no one except it calls for suspicion so does the kremlin list really change. come back to the program moderates in the u.s. city of baltimore skyrocketed in twenty seventeen with fifty six killings per one hundred thousand people in a new record for the city that already has a reputation for being dangerous and crime ridden. to cities in body american urban decay
a spate of killings is the third. a cease fire of its kind we talk to the activists behind them the people all around the city make commitments to just be peaceful and not be violent for three days and to celebrate life and do life affirming event so their events are all over the city we distort what do we care if we keep it in a weekend no homicides comes as baltimore has been rocked by one of america's biggest police corruption scandals the gun trace task force was made up of plain clothed officers and was supposed to be tackling the city's spiraling murder rate however it seems they have actually been adding to the levels of crime the unit was dissolved in march last year and its officers arrested they're facing various charges including fraud drug trafficking and planting false evidence six out of eight members of the group of pleaded guilty to charges of organized crime. artie's american has been following the story. the baltimore police department is
now involved in one of the biggest scandals in u.s. law enforcement history for months now the court system has been trying to investigate corruption within the city's police force eight officers are on trial over drug trafficking racketeering robbery and planting fake evidence like drugs and. we would create false reports to cover up the robberies we were involved. it was like aware of life were got away with a lot of things if proven guilty the officers and may face twenty to one hundred years in prison and six of them have already pleaded guilty and are now acting as witnesses in hopes of softening the moving verdict and their lawyers claim the officer spilled guilt over what they've done mr jenkins is extremely remorseful he's been remorseful for a long time even before these charges were brought and he's relieved that today finally he was publicly able to accept responsibility for their clients sorry for what they did or should. be so it seems regret for what happened i
really don't have any comment meanwhile officers cases continue to be dismissed with hundreds under review and most of them involve incidents of officer switching off their body cameras to plant drugs or guns and then reenact seizing the evidence they had already planted. the b.b.c. has been accused of bias in its brags that coverage with a majority of its guests had to have been pro the european union that's according to several recent reports which are prompted anger in britain's house of lords. across our output as a whole we must be inclusive reflecting of breadth and diversity of opinion we must give due weight to the many and diverse areas of an argument. to leave has left us with a group of leaders who having lit the fire of all the while it breaks it is a historic mistake for us with it breaks my heart our lie in bed tonight comes back
said once again i'm the sole lever on a v.c. . frankly the p.p.c. has become the supporter of a. organize a trial. for the european jury of the brics it's true mr davis did the city recently that his job in brussels is maybe even more difficult if every time he makes a small advance that is problematic for the b.b.c. get sure that she is older because you do a duty of impartiality. we discussed this issue with the director general at the institute of economic affairs which was behind one of the referendum reports on the b.b.c. . but it's true that we are no longer in
a referendum period and it is true as the b.b.c. said in the statement they have furnished you with that it's no longer a binary choice but the problem is this although there are a wide range of choices really those range of options are subsets of the remain camp and the leave camp i think it's pretty poor that a public broadcaster a skewed their guests and panelists so dramatically in this direction all the top political issue of the times. in general in britain a stablished figures famous figures and influential people have tended to be in favor of e.u. membership it's more the ordinary man or woman who rebelled against the political stab recently tend to believe side seems to be the balancing for people's views on bret's it making sure you have a fair share of voice from both ends and all ends of the argument should be a very very high priority indeed. i think the
politicians on the leave side of the argument those who are in favor of bricks it are beginning to lose their patience with the b.b.c. but i would say that the b.b.c. now should be concerned but there are politicians who are seriously raising in the british parliament in the house of lords genuine concern about whether the b.b.c. really can be considered a neutral broadcaster one that doesn't just show a diversity of views but a proper balance of. high street giant eighteen m. is back in the headlines after some shoppers were offended by design that appear to contain the word our it comes on the back of another scandal over another featuring a young black model he was wearing a hoodie with the phrase the coolest monkey in the jungle which caused outrage the boy's mother however dismissed any claims of racism but people have again been reacting on twitter. this is ridiculous the next will be that they forbid the small w. and them people have choices if you don't like them then don't buy them getting
