8:01 pm
it is seven o'clock pm on a friday night in laredo texas it is three zero one here in moscow russia you're watching international and we are glad to have you with us now russia has announced it has opened a criminal investigation into the attempted murder of yulia screen paul the daughter of the former russian spy who was also poisoned in the english city of salisbury as more. the russian investigative investigative committee have decided to carry out their own investigations that they've just launched regard to the attempted murder of u.s. repelled she's a russian citizen and the daughter of the former spy. now this comes after several attempts by russia to help with the investigation back in the u.k.
8:02 pm
but moscow says those attempts have been refused by britain so far and following the rejections the foreign minister sergei lavrov has come out and made a statement. russia has requested that the substance london has been handed over to moscow as per the chemical weapons convention ratified by russia and the u.k. the fact that london told us bluntly that the u.k. wants to talk with russia is a clear violation of the convention which saves that before a state can act in any way it is obliged to get in touch directly with a country which it suspects is the origin of a given toxic agent you can see tensions are rising there and being more fuel to the already raging diplomatic row u.k. foreign minister bars johnson has come out and even gone as far to accuse president putin of being personally responsible for ordering the murder of three power he's said he's almost over well mainly likely behind the poisoning moscow of course responded to those comments saying that they were shocking and forgivable but as it
8:03 pm
stands the russian investigative committee are launching their own investigation how they will do that when they will do that if indeed they will be able to do that given that they need the cooperation from the british authorities we don't know at the moment but we will of course keep you updated russia's foreign ministry spokesperson has said that russia has made all its decisions regarding the positioning poisoning incident and that they will notify their british counterparts in due course we also discussed the topic with russia's permanent representative to the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons and ambassador to the netherlands alexander. gloria i want is could get a good saw based on statements by the head of the british delegation they regard our proposal on bilateral consultations as an attempt to procrastinate and they urged everybody not to listen to these lies as they say they say russia's intention
8:04 pm
is to avoid being held accountable but i see it differently and my guess is actually our british friends and partners are just afraid they are afraid that our experts may analyze those samples and they may see some dirty tricks there or something but our british partners don't want this to happen if they don't produce any evidence we will regard that as they have nothing to show and they will be held accountable for slander to. go it's in the but we offered other options if they don't want to talk to us directly we can go through the executive council we can send our appeal to the executive council of the council will contact us and give a response within ten days when you think there's a third option we can set up a group of technical experts led by the director general and if they are not happy with that they can call a special session but the british are not happy with any of these options they can call a meeting of the highest body of law o.p.c. w.
8:05 pm
and we can address the issue there so they have a number of different options from it for sure they will not be able to tell where the substance came from but this will require dialogue between russia and the u.k. direct or indirect there are many ways to go about it. so you ask so yes when the soviet union collapsed in the early nineties intelligence services took from russia a group of specialists and their documents including veiled mirrors are young of and they continued their work with soviet knowledge and we even know in which countries the work continued some of this work was successful and we can find the results openly on nato and e.u. websites. commenting on the screen paul case of former german foreign minister singh maher gabriela has likened it to a lousy james bond film that. it's almost like a spiral of mutual accusations and self-fulfilling insinuation it all reminds me of
8:06 pm
a bad james bond movie each side is paranoid school each side pursues its own conspiracy theories and here is what has emerged in place of hard evidence. 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 but tokens that 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 store it is chemical weapons for.
8:07 pm
the attack and source for it has taken place against the backdrop of a wreck just a ton of russian behavior. over many years russia these cells bury poison or 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 descents 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 the slip about some. gas that was undetectable like a truck through it. is a coincidence. this is.
8:08 pm
the first thank you for finding dr mark of course again we're off to be 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
8:09 pm
with poison and their contaminated pen so could these cells brew poisoning be blatant american this one could stretch this logic beyond any reason and say for example the u.k. has been holding its skills in the death by chemicals business since shakespeare's macbeth busted blatant englishness the cia james bond shakespear one thing all of my theories have in common is an insane age of conspiracy we're 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 is being substituted for hashtags ash tag russia did it hash tag highly likely. highly likely
8:10 pm
it's the term britain and its allies use in their joint statement alleging moscow's culpability for the poisoning they also want russia to tell the organization for the prohibition of. mikkel weapons about the nerve agent which is thought to have been used one unknown graffiti artist has hit out at russia outside its embassy in london this is. the russian embassy and lists a menu that among other items includes. a lot of references to the nerve agent to use against his. daughter unit which never takes a look now at the coverage of the spitball case in europe. so here are just some newspapers that i saw this morning in paris now this one is on france which translates as today in france and so you can see and ask quite a scary front page which sounds that the cold war isn't over now we've got here
8:11 pm
as well with the hard line that sounds so against putin united with the sound cold war and we've got another one which is up in your own that calls the russian president vladimir putin toxic mr putin and rice how the. poisoning of the. sound how played well into the hands of the russian president has presidential elections and russia and it's not just the frame of the worldwide media shares at the same why it's alarmist approach and really instead of waiting for the official confirmation media outlets around the world seem to be competing to outdo one another with the most sensational and. more than sixteen thousand people have managed to flee syria's embattled eastern government forces have been intensifying efforts to retake the area which since two
8:12 pm
thousand and twelve has been under the control of various islamist and rebel groups the russian defense ministry center for reconciliation claims militants were firing at civilians as they tried to leave early. on friday now these are pictures from friday in eastern goody you can see people leaving along the humanitarian corridors declared by the syrian government it is the biggest single exodus since the fighting escalated last month earlier on friday un special envoy for syria stefan. gave a briefing to the un security council the underlined the importance of upholding the ceasefire agreement russia helped broker between the warring parties. that meetings have been taking place since. between the russian federation and jay shift in the last few days. the result of these engagement can you project. begin the government russian military and forward to have
8:13 pm
continued to hold for that they know that hope that if i hold because being a police one good. very bad. russia's defense ministry says women and children and the elderly were among the first to be given safe passage the russian military now also says citizens of another town in the area have expressed their willingness to flee and he takes a closer look at the situation. at first it was only a trickle of civilians fleeing syria's rebel held territory of eastern data it's now become a flood thousands have been given safe passage out of the embattled and play. it down just to get out just to get out just to get out more and do it by.
8:14 pm
mother said. one woman from moody if. you look you know. the roof. tops down or just i'm doing a live but why do not follow through will know that when to say it will handle and i'm not the kind of sound man or i didn't want to. 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 were even accounts of insurgents hiding in civilian houses taking people hostage and using them as human shields but i mean listen to that key the key is to not have them as you know climb in the middle to show to your house lean a little money can do in the parliament. and you aren't enough to have a shady accounting that's number one or two i know and i don't really i mean fall
8:15 pm
or nor new club s. . and then count on me if you know and would not allow a limousine almost with no call and i haven't been the sort out so it's not good i do is your logs are less. than zero got a good no idea if you could live their lives at their living on this but then it would do what it would go the push by russia on syria to establish this humanitarian corridor however was snubbed fest russia has called for the us joke like humanitarian corridors russia needs to judge. just do what the united nations had agreed to and voted on and that is a countrywide cease fire the russian military says the situation in parts of eastern computer has significantly stabilized over the past few days but that 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 you know. but it's
8:16 pm
a bargaining game at times the syrian government and russia have how 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 on devaluation will soon bring to a close one of the most brutal chapters in the syrian conflicts. right now getting aid into eastern is proving as difficult as getting residents out. more the rounds land with the red crescent trucks as volunteers loaded fresh food parcels and bags of flour on thursday and the delivery was resumed shortly afterwards the aid convoy brought essential to almost thirty thousand people in the syrian town of douma. eastern good it was seized by rebels in late two thousand and twelve and since two thousand and thirteen has been under siege as the syrian army
8:17 pm
tries to recapture the area of the assad government has succeeded in driving the insurgents whom it sees as terrorists into three small pockets regaining much of the region you can see here on the map but the situation for many civilians in the area still remains dire we asked phyllis bennis a political analyst and author to comment on the issue there is no place for them to go the country of syria has been decimated by these seven years of war and people have been moved from one place to another looking for safety and not finding it those who have been driven out of the country are finding the gates of other countries closed against them most notably of course the united states which has prohibited refugees coming from syria all together in the context of the so-called muslim bans that donald trump has imposed but even the countries close are the countries right in the region who are already taking care of hundreds of thousands
8:18 pm
in some cases more than a million refugees in in lebanon for instance is a very small country one out of every four people in that country is now a syrian refugee in jordan where there's over a million refugees but there's simply not enough water available so the humanitarian crisis is is massive on a regional level certainly within syria is the most serious then. the regional level and on a global level the syrian refugees are facing a devastating future. the pentagon's top brass say they had no idea weapons supplies had to the saudi coalition in yemen were leading to civilian deaths we bring you details after a break so what's a. combination
8:19 pm
of. very artful policy. where he's established a great relationship with food and fuel and american mistakes i think. this relationship between russia and china to become. quite a lot can be quite. be quite difficult to undermine.
8:20 pm
our welcome back this is r.t. international now the u.s. military has admitted it has no idea how arms it sells to the saudi led coalition are being used in yemen's civil war. does sit com track the purpose of the missions that it is refueling what targets it strikes and the results of the mission senator we do not ok reuters recently reported on a saudi coalition air strike in late february that killed five civilians is centcom able to tell whether a u.s. fuel or u.s. munitions were used as part of that strike. center around i don't believe we are ok. in joint resolution on yemen was introduced by a group of u.s. senators last month that aims to limit the president power to wage war without congressional authorization it also proposes to cut american support for saudi involvement in the yemeni civil war
8:21 pm
a vote on the resolution is to be held soon. two thousand and seventeen the u.s. and saudi arabia sealed a weapons deal worth almost one hundred ten billion dollars rising to three hundred fifty billion over ten years has been branded as one of the largest arms sales in american history and here you can see the aftermath of the coalition's latest strikes in yemen most of the planes at the international airport were destroyed has been closed for almost a year due to the saudi blockade against the country war broke out in yemen three years ago with the saudi led bombing campaign against who the rebels claimed thousands of civilian lives and you have described the situation as the worst manmade humanitarian crisis in modern history. look at your own let's.
8:22 pm
see. if. there are crying a few minutes crying go for crimes against humanity it was trying for that are being committed to war. and the u.s. being not in this case the u.s. is a supporter of this coalition. for the u.s. to admit that yes we know what is happening i would choose a more likely thing it is. it has consequent even to consequences in addition to their studies u.s. law that prevents the recipient countries off u.s.
8:23 pm
weaponry to use it. except incentive for me. committing war crimes and crimes against humanity. so there are legal liability both internally and internationally thank you thank you to is stepping into the ring in the fight against fake news but its choice of spying partner has drawn a barrage of criticism. you tube conspiracy videos. so inspections of people who don't understand that watching science fiction you face a strong criticism after it spread conspiracy theories in the aftermath of the deadly school shooting in florida to get filtered down with video like this is the first time they have been unable or unwilling to stop the spread of conspiracy theories thanks to both. the media
8:24 pm

8:25 pm
thank you you thank. thank you. what makes this whole thing sort of fascinating and problematic of course is that you know who's to decide what is misinformation you know in two thousand and three before the invasion of iraq as far as the establishment was concerned it was a conspiracy theory to say that there were actually no weapons of mass destruction and that the invasion of iraq was was you know based on a bogus pretext cooked up beforehand by bush and his cronies what we've seen what we saw in the years afterwards is that that previously conspiracy theory was absolutely true and certainly the powerful of the world to conspire a lot of the time to try and make sure that they're interested in what happens in the world so this is an inherently complicated in messy area i would say. thirty four minutes will bring you to the top of the hour which is when you will see me
8:26 pm
