never a chicken is immersed in a sea of course up more deals for this year but she doesn't leave the ship knowing it's just in your future for them if you try to stop it would stop them so it was. wrong for us it is notable that when you're the one of the bottoms of it's true to your floor that i will do with us for which i will share his goods the easier it may be used in the sense of the. people asleep never what's more some good enough some for it's more stores over the work force and you're seeing the little you see in the harbor and some places. and you might. well not all voters were able to cast their ballots in ukraine russian nationals were blocked from voting by local police and russian councils and several ukrainian . cities but also protests against russia's presidential election across ukraine we
5:32 pm
contacted several international organizations asking for common control of the organization for security cooperation in europe but simply said it's a matter of bilateral relations between two countries full stop over one hundred forty thousand observers of ensuring that ballots are cast without any problems and that the voting procedures are conducted properly over fifteen hundred of the observers of foreigners which is a record for the presidential election here in russia we don't need to actually have to the polls to see how it's all going to have been you can watch the voting process from the comfort of your own hiring with the vast majority of paul's set up with cameras to stream everything on line technology the technology yes indeed activists are using them to monitor any possible violations of quote one incident in the far east has already been showing some attention they noticed ballots in find the box before the first vote even a right. to clarify the situation later it seems noting there were cars actually by
5:33 pm
police officers before they went on to two members of the election commission actually working at the site so it seems. explained more than twenty five thousand indeed but that's it from us from what i was able to carry on with. let me just tell you where we are the most. the polls close here in moscow than this part of russia or forty five minutes we can't talk about the candidates until that happens but if we've got another hour to go before we can talk about the candidates and the vote because of course fota continues over in kaliningrad another hour time zone away for most of the west so it'll be. hour and forty five before things really get underway probably got a lot more coverage to make you see the well being here. from this beautiful setting it might. see later hopefully that.
5:34 pm

5:35 pm
crowds of civilians many of them are children to leave them battle area. so. let me. our. wrists use people as human shields they wouldn't let us fully they hid behind our backs we wanted to leave a year and a half ago they wouldn't let us. have they did receive aid he would say that aid had arrived and they 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. these oranges
5:36 pm
for seven years we couldn't buy them. will. quite impressive. also to see that at the end of the day what is lacking is. trust between the parties to the conflict also the consideration of the needs of the civilian population. the top. for the food fight holes because there's been a police one good news i'm all very bad. ok let's get the thoughts now of linda tom she's a public information officer of the united nations office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs and she's with us now get off it was good evening we should say linda thanks for coming on to our look we've seen of people leave today how

5:38 pm
back i think in a few minutes time but at the moment i'm fortunate it's very hard to hear what you were saying our apologies but we'll be back with you soon. now in other news the u.k. russia relations did hit a new low this week amid the poisoning scandal have a look at that in detail in a couple of minutes. it's. what politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. most somewhat want to be. the two going to be press for survival before three in the morning and people. i'm interested always in the lines about how. question.
5:39 pm
a plate for many clubs over the years so i know the game inside guides. football isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the superman each kill the narrowness and spending through to the twenty million one player. it's an experience like nothing else not to because i want to share what i think of what i know about the beautiful guy but great so what paul chimes with. and thinks it's going to. hello again my britain's foreign secretary has announced the transfer to the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons of nerve agent samples used in the poisoning of a former russian spy and his daughter after a week of rising tensions with moscow with more his shouting booga in
5:40 pm
a spell in 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 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 is highly likely that russia was responsible we do hold russia culpable culpable culpable for the attempted murder but is case is culpable quarrel is with putin's kremlin 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 one's voice has been echoed across the world situation it certainly looks like the russians with the idea that with high probability the traces lead to russia you. everything leads us to believe that it is indeed russia that was behind this attempted assassination leads us to believe high probability
5:41 pm
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 seems. something by the way in the kind of smug sarcastic response that we've heard from the russians that to me is 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 chalk but everyone seems to have forgotten that a former russian chemist who's accusing moscow of the attack himself published the
5:42 pm
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 shock a military grade nerve agent of 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 cheese by 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 corbin in parliament where ruthlessly jeered and shot down by his fellow politicians as the prime minister to. in the necessary steps under the chemical weapons convention how has she responded to the russian government's request for
5:43 pm
a sample has a 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 is a consensus across the butt benches of this house yeah i am really sorry that the consensus does not go as far as the right honorable gentleman. to have taken the opportunity as the u.k. government has done to condemn the culpability of russia. 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
5:44 pm
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 be last standing this is a carefully constructed drama as part of the propaganda campaign that is building building now for several years in order to justify the actions of nato britain the united states towards russia why on earth would russia on the eve of the lexer and all the staging the world cup want to destroy if you like it's international low with such a crime but there's plenty of motive on the outside russia being effectively pushed in door corner with these accusations this is part of our propaganda camp and i can tell you that i would. and was spent almost all my career working in the mainstream and this is
5:45 pm
a problem. promoters certainly in the media. while the russian ambassador to the u.k. has called for a strained in this standoff but while britain's allies have thrown their weight behind the claims if some european politicians do remain puzzled by the deepening rift between moscow and london. it's almost like a spiral of mutual accusations and self-fulfilling insinuations it's all reminds me of a bad james bond movie each side is paranoid each side pursues its own conspiracy theories earlier britain's foreign secretary boris johnson did claim the poisoning is evidently russian in its very nature r.t.g. go to dan of takes a closer look. novi 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.
5:46 pm
agents and russians the show is marketed using the slogan diplomacy is overrated here it's little about the course. because it was one that had to look at all through as it. is a coincidence. bring it. to. your rational past but if you're finding dr market force again we're off to be taking another tour for ourselves t.v. and cinema have made the secret services 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
5:47 pm
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 laid come undone to be 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 americanness 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 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 but the historical practices of the
5:48 pm
russians who typically almost genetically driven to co-opt. perpetrate international law is being substituted for hashtags ash tag russia did it as tag highly likely. he'll be watching the weekly here in r.t. international of course the big story today the russian presidential election still about an hour and a half of voting left and we'll be back with the latest for you in thirty. global was selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks forcing you to buy the battle that will. produce talk for the tell you that will be gossip to the public but i fell. off the eyes and tell you on the whole and by product. of the hawks that
5:49 pm
we along with all the walking. join me every thursday on the alex simon sure and i'll be speaking to guests of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. locked away secrets and shady financial setups are nightmares for french tax inspectors and customs officers. we question the customs investigator a specialist in fraud and the trafficking of cultural assets. faced with such scams he recognizes his powerlessness. on created this society course a skeleton of a sim or only a civil war on your. own export or home.
5:50 pm
well fed up on the show. it on yes it's a shit to each immensely committed on the contrary i don't. despise. could have been if he did have a bank account he's also to honest to devide he's got his powerball fineness up. we meet up again with even with all of his indictments he's earned a shady reputation but after thirty years in the business he's as tough as nails every year in may he heads to basel in switzerland for the biggest art fair in the world art basel. he flies in a private jet for which he pays fifty thousand dollars a year. despite his tangles with the law he wants to be in the right places. the ball something that will want to go out a bunch of sick people. say that but just as strong and red people
5:51 pm
see it up because all the doing nothing else of what. makes him to be sensitive to lesser known for making a show. as you know but check off a lot of them before the switch was but they could. be said it's at the p.t.a. meeting. i said. but they said it went up about obama's because that's another democrat but he did. want. something. help us to step up somebody like it was but you know what's that been on the board to see it get. but he did it up and he's good. and yet barely off his private jet we soon see that his controversial reputation causes fewer problems than predicted.
5:52 pm

5:53 pm

5:55 pm
anyone he's the man with three hundred picasso's the head of one of the most powerful families in the art world the numb odds renown dealers. here's their stand at art basel by calder mirror those fun tanos and because those. and also a royal lichtenstein and his own two feet all of them stars of modern art. in the mud collection is valued at almost three billion dollars thousands of works most of which are stored at the geneva freeport. maybe the reason david no mud prefers to be discreet is because one of the paintings he owns is causing him problems with the law. the story started here in the paris archives in two thousand and eleven with this
5:56 pm
man james palmer. even as a canadian private detective who specializes in finding art looted from jews by the nazis. one day while rummaging in the paris archives he came across a file on a certain stetson or a jewish antiques dealer the man was dispossessed of all his assets during world war two. after the liberation of paris he found a plane to recuperate his patrimony. the documentation is contained in this box it was here in the paris archives that we found a document that referred to the quest of mr oscar stoner for his stolen pate. the information that we found was that oscar stettner had been despoiled of a number of personal items carpet for example of portrait of him as
5:57 pm
a young man and also a painting by mostly any. and an important painting and that was looted from mr stener during the war. the canadian detective began his investigation he discovered that the antiques dealer staton or had made his claim for restitution in one thousand nine hundred six but well before the liberation the painting had already been sold by the authorities. for the sum of sixteen thousand francs since then it disappeared. particularly because its description is so vague. the document only indicated that it was a painting signed by do jani portrait of a man. the detective had no idea what the painting looked like. he had to find a photo of it at all costs. by consulting peepers kept in the paris archives james
5:58 pm
palmer came across a clue this telegram. it states that staten or had sent the modigliani to the venice biennale of one nine hundred thirty. i travelled to venice personally and went into the archives there and to the venice be an alley archives i saw mr stettner spray painting. in a photograph. james palmer was delighted he'd found it. this photo taken at the one nine hundred thirty venice biennale shows twelve paintings on the wall of the room dedicated to. ten portraits of women and two of men. the one on the right was already identified and well known. the painting in the middle however the one of a seated man is more mysterious. so now you've got reference to mr stener owning the painting you've got reference to portrait of
5:59 pm
a man. and you have a photograph that's the exact same painting that is now illustrated or described as the seated man. finally james palmer knew what the painting looked like. but where had it gone he searched everywhere activated his contacts toured the auction rooms archives and museums. and after a few weeks ago. he found a trace of the painting here in london in the catalogue when auction held at christie's in one thousand nine hundred six. the painting was intitled seated man with a cane. but who owned it. it was acquired by a shell company based in panama international arts center whose registration document is seen here. its rightful owner is
6:00 pm
a name. and yet palmer refused to give up and finally discovered another lead to finding the true owners. over the years the work appeared in a number of catalogs. and every time alongside the name of one of the most prestigious galleries in the world the helena maude gallery in new york run by the daughter of the family patriarch we ran into at art basel. james palmer decided to write to our. american mess one is the melting pot and the second is the radio alger mess of the bootstrapping anyone get to see that america the works are so this is a whole group of people all generation in america.
