and this is first and the second of course we were blamed that everything put happened there this is and this is the responsibility of russia so the argument was very simple you know twenty four hours and we have to answer basically two questions the first question is we have to confirm or deny that the that the substance and there's boris johnson put it this is the under the british because if occasion this is a two three four so basically this is based on their calculations this is the name of that substance because we don't have any access to this substance that's why we have to trust the police because of the over the british so boris johnson said we have to either confirm or deny that this somehow we mismanaged this kind of substance the stockpiles in the second one that was the question whether with if if
the first answer will be in the negative the second question is we have to acknowledge that this is the russian aggression you know this is the russians would do that. next day we gave an official we send the official note and there were two points there the first one of course we're not ready to discuss all these things in a way of the ultimate them and of course you know russia is not the country which is. ready to talk this way this is first second we pointed out to the british counterparts that. if they have any questions or let's see any information they have to do you in accordance with international law russia and the u.k. the other members of the organization will provision of the chemical weapons and the right under article nine paragraph to read. procedures in case you have any
suspicions you have to apply to this organisation officially and. ask for the consultations with the specific countries would you have this kind of suspicions and then you you have to give the answer within the ten days only be earlier and if you're not satisfied with the answer then you have a special procedures where the organization itself will be switched to this process so the instead of that the british decided just to talk to us you know in the way of the ultimate thems. and so this is the way this is the way how they're behaving but that you have to just to clarify for those who don't know both britain and russia are part of that organization yeah that's right so this would be normal protocol under the these circumstances that there's an official request filed in ten days are given this right so this is the official
procedure and we all like all the members of that are musicians i subscribe from that but since we're blamed the. under the british question occasionally agent a two three four. is the russian region we asked the british officially by a node to share the sample so that in order to make our own conclusions and we would not so that give give us additional suspicions about the reason given as to why don't they said just know we're not going to give you anything and words johnson has said that they are going to send a sample to the opi c.w. but not to russia that was later that was later so basically of course well welcome to let's say to send this to the organisation but still i just spoke to our ambassador to this organisation. and he said so far there we
didn't get any formal request from the bridges side it means that i don't know how they're going to act but for the time being no official procedure was launched and this is another very suspicious behavior of the british side so all the investigation about the screwball is classified we don't have any information we don't have any access nobody saw even the pictures of that people in the hospital whether they alive or maybe the just in the good health. so nobody talked to the doctors you know there is absolutely no transparency in this case and this is worries us but by the way under the international law and the vienna convention we have to get the access to these people because they're russian citizens and we're also being tonight so basically britain doesn't respect the international law and the way how they're behaving. is just. puts
the council itself is called. combination of. very artful policy. where he's established a great relationship with food and. mistakes i think that's what. this relationship between russia and china. quite a lot can be quite tricky and would be very difficult to undermine. what did you make of some of the media coverage of this story because obviously the anti russian moods if you can put it that way have been prevalent for quite some time so when this story happened were you surprised to see the way it unraveled given the the investigation is still going on and the police have not made any
official statements in terms of pointing fingers quite yet the launch was made by after the speech of boris johnson that was the next day so immediately under the command you know of the foreign secretary we've got all this media reports without any evidence if you read the british newspapers you will see that there are no evidence this is this is first. the beginning of this. we heard two things going interesting the first one there were calls that. the license of the r.t. should be revoked. and the second one that the world there were promises in the parliament to launch the cyber attack against russian. so basically there was a strong reaction from the russians about the presence of the earth in the u.k. but what is interesting with fish of the requested the explanations about the plans of the britain to launch this cyber attack is this
a real server attack against the country it's the act of war. and first of all we didn't get the official answer to this note and some how to do is a good that let's say that topic disappeared from the british newspapers and from any statements from the in the parliament so basically i think that the british so i decided that was too much so two things are tea and the cyberattack disappears from the disappeared from the british media. so this is this is the answer to your question what do you make of some of the terminology being used according to recent neighbors john. and she's used the words highly likely that got a lot of traction he today said when asked how certain he is that russia is behind this on a scale from one to ten he said nine point nine nine hundred eight yet he's also said there's overwhelming evidence that points at russia do you think given the
gravity of the accusations and the consequences that are clearly already following in the story there should just be more certainty provided i'll tell you this is that this is quite a trick because when you don't have evidence when the when you don't have any proofs you have to use the word likely probably maybe because the british provide any information the provide access to the investigation that's why in order to see something for sure you have to present the evidence and they can do this but then why would they go so far with these kinds of measures that are being put in place i think this is the if you look back to the policy of the u.k. you will find that britain in new circumstances is trying to find its new police in the let's say you win in the western society because they're leaving e.u. and everything what is left you know i'm not talking about the united nations but
the key arena in this is needham and britain's trying to find the police and this police the found on so-called until russian campaign and the way how they want to deter russia that's why we have seen a year ago the new concept of national security where russia was named as the major in you mean to britain then there was a banquet speech where we basically good the confirmation that we are the the enemy and the reason one more reason for. diverting the attention of the british public is is this. briggs because. the situation is new with a negotiation is not so easy in this country and britain is. definitely. has has to find the solutions with the european union and for the time being i
don't see any results from the from the negotiations and they have in order to divert the attention from the bridge that they have to see to present something to the public that could move to it and there's a great possibility to launch this into russian campaign and to russian attack and this is this is this is the scenario which was written in london but. but from my point to you this is a very short side it's an area because in the long run. britain have to explain what is behind all these things and sold very i think they have to explain what they're doing in this secret chemical laboratory which is eight miles from from the from the source very. where were the investigated the substance based on their information on the samples based on
the certain standards the have and this i think this would be the question that they have to clear if why. in the organization for proliferation of the chemical weapons because everything what is being said today. looks for us very suspicious just to go back. for a little bit to the relationship between russia and the u.k. now where where does it go from here because we've seen in recent months specially what some of the accusations flying around people have been asking is this kind of a new cold war today. williamson was asked about this and he said he didn't use the term cold war but he said extremely extremely chilly. where does the relationship go from here and where would russia like it to go from here this week and then moving forward and what would it take to. for this kind of gridlock to move
somewhere well if you look at the concept of the russian foreign policy and the rethink what we did all these years the major task for us is the create favorable conditions for the development of my country so this is the way how we're putting all the relations with all the other countries by the way if you look at the world you'll find that maybe something like with the hundred twenty countries we don't have a visa regime so we want to have different relations so that was the goal. of course of our policy with the u.k. and that was the job of any investor including me and so all these years despite the difficulties that we have with britain we tried to find the opportunities for the political dialogue and we created the right form it's you know like the minister and the minister of defense for months you know there were there was there
was a patient in the political life during the olympic games year so we tried to promote economic relations and you know business in business is also a lie here because you know the simply don't understand what's happening you know with the government but they have limited influence and so culture science you know everybody is interested and. probably the political sea so-called deep state. so they're putting the policy that we're witnessing so basically there will be there will be approach will be very simple we. first of all we want to. clearly for all the questions that are behind this kind of a provocation this is exactly what we see this is first and then we'll see what are the other possibilities because we have to influence britain britain is
the perm member of the security council and we're interested to hear our views and want we want to influence on the british policy and in order to do have this influence you have to have the mechanisms that's why that's why that's why our policy will be. quite. we have strategic patience but we will never talk to us in the such a language as you just heard from the minister of defense this is not the language so we're right we know what we're doing as there is and we said and the time will come when the people of britain the will understand that they have. maybe they have another government who will who will when other people who will have a better policy towards russia but that's where the relations we are always open
for any constructive corporation because as i said our task is to create as favorable conditions for my country to develop and of this country because we're busy with our own economy so we're not going to put anybody as the enemy or something it's not our policy but we have strategic patience britain is facing quite a serious steps on our side. to them and two directions the first one of course will and will demand to answer although notes in official requests so we're talking about the. get samples of that. eight two three four under the british. asian this is the poison as they put it this is we have to get the excess to the to this family of scruple but we will ask the axis and so consular access to the.
to the in other gentleman who died here he's a russian citizen mr. and the circumstances are very suspicious. so we will get all the answers from the british side in the organization for the proliferation of the chemical weapons we will get access to the all the investigation that they're doing. and of course i'm quite sure that. we will get all the results it's not just one day story it's not a media story but at the end of the day we clear with why the whole situation with the policy of britain so that's why we're confident and that's why we know that we are right and we believe this is the right direction of work with the british but it should be done in a legal way not just through the media and of course i think that will i
hope. that will put the british to the table or. not the negotiations at least the conversation because for the time being you know the skill is keeping of doing this. in the heart of the swiss alps this is a place probably more secretive than the pentagon more mysterious than the cia and better guarded than for knox swiss customs. and all the science is controlled by them and they impose the opening time so if. it is from stop us the procedures in place of the strictest in all europe must to pieces by artists like picasso and modigliani i can't boards and sold inside this warehouse that's where the report
comes in it covers up deals which are naturally discreet commercially discreet stealth but also discreet because they concern fraud of some of those paintings are linked to dark secrets nobody knows how many of these secrets a kept inside the geneva freeport social position that you'll never obtain an inventory of all the works in the freeport who knows how many there are three hundred three thousand three hundred thousand is it a matter of confidentiality only is it the world's black box of the art business. off selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battle of the. new socks for the tell you that because of the public by itself most important. off the bat doesn't tell you on the cool enough to buy their product. the hawks that we
along. with what. this hour's headlines stories that may have been followed and leave syria. in the largest exodus since militants took control of the. britain and its allies bomb together over a claim. in the poisoning of former spy. on his talk with the british foreign secretary saying russia's response is enough to. the kremlin. but just two days before russians vote in the presidential election r.t. looks at how some western media are doing exactly what russia's long. term. for coffee california is refusing to serve uniformed officers and it's just
a number in the u.s. which are betting their customers. around the clock across the world this is our team international from the team and myself you know neil welcome to the program nearly eleven thousand people have to escape the militant controlled syrian enclave of eastern using russia sponsored humanitarian corridors it is the biggest number two evacuated from the embattled area in one day but it's been tough to get to this stage has had to expect. that it was only a trickle of civilians fleeing serious rebel held territory of eastern gates it's now become a flood thousands have been given safe passage out of the embattled and play.
so let's get out into the lot just to get out more of the. mother said to me. one moment from moody if. you look you know. this is the. jersey i'm doing a lot but why do not quarrel little no budget we do say that we're handling another service on me and laura do you know what. men women and children staggered to with the way to their belongings some was seen carrying injured relatives this mass evacuation could be a pivotal moments an end to the region's suffering the push by russia on syria to
establish this humanitarian corridor however was snubbed out fest russia has called for these jokes like humanitarian corridors russia needs to just do what the united nations had agreed to and voted on and that is a countrywide cease fire but russia insisted it was a positive step one that just needed time and it was a struggle initially some of the militants were reportedly threatening to punish those trying to leave and shutting the path to safety there are even accounts of insurgents hiding in civilian houses taking people hostage and using them as human shields. when i met him when we left eastern ghouta it was so difficult when we tried to leave earlier we were not allowed as it was controlled by terrorists. terrorists use people as human shields they wouldn't let us fully they hid behind our barracks we wanted to leave a year and a half ago but they wouldn't let us so there were militants from. which is all
kind of they killed everyone who spoke against them they took them and killed them they killed my cousin and his two sons things are improving though the russian military says the situation in parts of eastern computer has significantly stabilized over the past few days but that work is far from over. as long as people keep leaving the area we will keep on working and stay here until we see the last person leave or more yeah but it's a bargaining game at times the syrian government and russia have had to agree to allow safe passage to rebel fighters in order to get the civilians out it's hopes that the rebels crumbling grip on power in the region along with a deliveries and evacuations will soon bring to a close one of the most brutal chapters in the syrian conflicts but saying that
right now are getting aid into eastern good it is proving as difficult as getting residents are. mortar rounds hit near red crescent trucks as volunteers unloaded fresh food parcels and bags of flour the delivery was resume shortly afterwards thursday's joint aid convoy brought essential to almost thirty thousand people in the syrian town of duma the president of the red cross was also there to witness the conditions residents are living in. talk to many people here sorry years council members in order to have an impression of what the difficulties are for the people living here in circles with the needle for almost everything quite impressive. also to see that at the end of the work is lacking.
the trust between the parties to become weak. also the concentration of the needs of the civilian population which is really suffering in which next every. dollar for headline stories the diplomatic ride between britain and russia has deepened over the past twenty four hours with prime minister treason may promising more sanctions over the poisoning of former double agent surrogates cripple since the u.k. directly blamed moscow for the incident its allies have lined up to back her claim here's a look at some of the evidence being tutted which may be swaying their minds. i'm afraid the evidence is overwhelming that it is russia and something by the way in the kind of smug sarcastic response that we've heard from the russians that to me indicates their fundamental guilt.
france shares britain's assessment that there is no other plausible explanation and reiterate its solidarity with its ally. this is not an isolated incident russia failed to ensure syria destroyed its chemical weapons program. good track and soul spirit has taken place against the backdrop of a reckless. russian behavior. over many years russia these cells bury poison everyone seems to have made up their minds and the u.k.'s foreign secretary was blodgett inventive stereotypes in its blatant russian this the nerve agent sends a signal to all who may be thinking of dissent in the intensifying repression of putin's russia nobody chalk the new noxious scare a nerve agent with obvious russian ness the chemicals even being featured in a t.v.
spy thriller in a standoff between the u.k. agents and russians the show is marketed using the slogan diplomacy is overrated he is slick about some. gas that was undetectable through it. to say. thank you for finding a marker for us again we're off to taking another tour for ourselves t.v. and cinema have made the. secret service is poisoning people plot an international feature after all even the most british of all agents james bond has also found himself amid some talks and driven storylines.
so are we having a case of blatant bone business here but this is of course all fiction it didn't happen in reality you avoid the culprits with the tainted record the one that stands out is the cia one of the key targets cuba has of late come undone t. fidel castro among the hundreds of alleged assassination attempts were cigars laced with poison and a contaminated pen so could these cells prove poisoning be blatant american this one could stretch this logic beyond any reason and say for example the u.k. has been honing it skills in the death by chemicals business since shakespeare's macbeth busted blatant englishness the cia james bond shakespeare one thing all of my theories have in common is an insane age of conspiracy we are not taking them seriously neither should anyone but when it comes to russia and
proof well we've already heard the d.n.a. arguments in the election meddling scandal the story corps practices of the russians who typically or most genetically driven to co-opt. perpetrate international law as being substituted for hashtags hash tag russia did it. highly likely. just to surmise highly likely is the term britain a little eyes use in their joint statement to conclude moscow's culpability for the poisoning they also want russia to tell the organ. for the prohibition of chemical weapons about the nerve agent which was thought to have been used one graffiti artist has hit russia. to see in london it's a dine the russian embassy lists a mock menu that among other items includes navi chocolates a.
