that we did receive aid he would say that aid had arrived and that it would distribute it in a few days but then they would say they had to keep it for our times when they gave us twenty percent of it and the rest was for the hard times i mean that but i did not come in these oranges for seven years we couldn't buy them. up the. fight in prices. also to see that at the end of the day what is lacking is. the trust between the parties to the conflict also the consideration of the needs of the civilian population. the top of that for the food fight holds because there's been a plea for one good news i'm all very bad.

3:36 pm
on the weekly u.k. russia relations with a new low this week amid the poisoning scandal we've got the latest on matter just after the break. an american viable human dry. notion. of yemen. genocide they were gone then just look who is some porting who american them british and a number of. european countries they are a very generous knew then their support to their aggressors so what kind of human rights in which to live a million children a woman does not count. the
3:37 pm
american minutes one is the melting pot and the second is the radio alger myth of the bush strapping like it to see that america works hard so this is a whole group of people all generation in america is saying that there is no melting pot we're not being assimilated there's no opportunities we can't live up so their response especially is to go into conflict and this is a major. again you're watching weekly now britain's foreign secretary has announced the transfer to the organization of the prohibition of chemical weapons of nerve agents. in the poisoning of a former russian spy and his daughter after a week of rising tensions with moscow. as more in a span of less than a week u.k. russia relations have been pushed to the point of an all out diplomatic war with no one looking ready to back down the screwball poisoning has created this massive
3:38 pm
divide between the two countries and despite the fact that the investigation is ongoing and scotland yard themselves have said that it may take weeks if not months to complete the politicians were much quicker it's highly likely that russia was responsible for the juveniles russia culpable culpable culpable for the attempted. escape is culpable all quarrel. if we putin's credit and we think it overwhelmingly likely that it was his decision moscow was quick to bite back slamming the ultimatum put forward by theresa may and calling the claims shocking and unforgettable meanwhile london's voice has been echoed across the world very sad situation certainly looks like the russians were here with high probability the traces lead to russia everything leads us to believe that indeed russia that was behind this attempted assassination leads us to believe high probability traces those terms are wearing thin on moscow because requests for evidence have been ignored when it comes to russia the proof doesn't have to be in the putting it
3:39 pm
seems. something by the way in the kind of smug sarcastic response that we've heard from the russians that to me that indicates their fundamental guilt. we've received very detailed information about this case which suggests that there is no other plausible alternative explanation. the attack console spree has taken place against the backdrop of a reckless pattern of russian behavior much of the case against russia seems to hinge on the nerve agent in question called no we check but everyone seems to have forgotten that a former russian chemist who's accusing moscow of the attack himself published the formula in full in a book back in two thousand and eight which is surely one of the reasons moscow has demanded to be provided samples of the agent used to poison screwball and his daughter poisoned with a navi shop a military grade nerve agent of
3:40 pm
a type developed by russia. if britain so confident that it was know of each other then that means they have the chemical formula so imports and the ability to produce it we requested the russian government to provide an explanation by the end of tuesday the thirteenth of march on how this russian produced nerve agent. could have been deployed in salisbury. they provided no credible explanation we're ready for open and constructive corporation we don't speak the language of ultimatums and we won't allow anyone to speak with us this way and similar queries coming from jeremy corbyn in parliament where ruthlessly jeered and shot down by his fellow politicians as the prime minister taken the necessary steps under the chemical weapons convention how has she responded to the russian government's request for a sample has high resolution trace analysis been run and has that revealed any evidence as to the location of its production all the identity of its perpetrators
3:41 pm
is a consensus across the butt benches of this house yeah i am only sorry that the consensus does not go as far as the right honorable gentle way you. could have taken the opportunity as the u.k. government has done to condemn the culpability here which. at this point london has ordered twenty three russian diplomats and their families to leave the u.k. suspended all high level contacts between the two countries and announced a partial boycott of the upcoming world cup for their part moscow answered in kind when it comes to expelling diplomats shut down the british council and plans to close the british consulate in st petersburg and then of course we have more nations ready to impose sanctions in solidarity with the u.k. against russia between flying accusations threats and diplomats being declared persona non grata the question becomes when all this tit for tat and and who will
3:42 pm
be left standing this is a carefully constructed drama that's part of the propaganda campaign that is building building now for several years in order to justify the actions of nato the united states towards russia while nurse with russia on the. even alexis and all of the staging in the world cup want to destroy if you like it's international know with such a crime but there's plenty of motive on russia being effectively pushed in dog corner with these actors h s is part of. i can tell you that i'm a journalist who spent almost all my career working in the mainstream and this is a propaganda campaign promoters and certainly in the media and make up much. meanwhile the russian ambassador to the u.k. has called for restraint in this standoff but while britain's allies have thrown
3:43 pm
their weight behind its claims some european politicians do remain puzzled by the deepening rift between moscow and london that's. it's almost like a spiral of mutual accusations and self-fulfilling insinuation that it all reminds me of a bad james bond movie each side is paranoid each side pursues its own conspiracy theories barely a britain's foreign secretary boris johnson claimed the poisoning is evidently russian in its very nature. takes a closer look. novi chalk the new noxious scare a nerve agent with obvious russianness 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 but here it's little about so-called. gas that was undetectable look it's all true
3:44 pm
is that. it is a coincidence. to see. yourself as a if your friend in dr market force again we're off to be taking the big show for ourselves t.v. and cinema have made the secret service's 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 dinners here but this is of course all fiction it didn't happen in reality you avoid all 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.
3:45 pm
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 his 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'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 almost genetically driven to co-opt. perpetrate international law is being substituted for hashtags our
