monday the second of april on call embrace two pm here in moscow your news at this hour first off the russian foreign minister says that the u.k. has gone too far with its accusations over the poisoning of sergei scribble and his daughter and would eventually have to provide answers to the questions posed by russia. you will not be possible to get away from the questions since the obvious and what else is obvious british colleagues have conceived fast with this game you just brought watching across all this forest correspondent. back first off then this is only happened in the past hour or so take us through what's been said well first and foremost has talked extensively about this crippled case he's expressed he said that he's glad that the daughter is getting better and has said that he hopes that her dad will follow through with that too when they're also he's underlined that russia is had. a lot of question and has asked
7:02 am
a lot of questions regarding the investigation and has is yet to receive the answers and this is effectively effectively what he's talking about that eventually someone will have to deliver for example russia even filed an official request to the o.p.c. w the u.n. chemical watchdog which is now sort of in charge of the vesta geisha there was a technical questions like for example what exactly what information the the u.k. has passed on to the body because the u.k. is refusing to provide any information to moscow and also whether or not the o.p.c. w. will be providing that information passing on that information to russia so this is these are the answers that russia is expecting and russia's is even summoned has called for an emergency for an emergency meeting of the o.p.c. w. on wednesday. source briefed on the investigation told c.n.n. they believe a move like that was too sophisticated for a rogue agent and likely needed kremlin approval now what we've heard right now is
7:03 am
how the mainstream media is sort of reviving this story and what they're doing here as you can clearly hear is that they are citing some officials some some unnamed official a source which is tying the assassination attempt to kremlin not exactly clear why they're doing this because this is something that you know to reason may and boris johnson have been saying for a long time now saying that kremlin is directly tied to the to the attempt so also the point that the source appears to make is the fact that the attack was so sophisticated that only only russia could have only someone only like a foreign government could have. could have. could have been able to carry it out so lover of address that in a way saying that then how come if it is so sophisticated how come there are so far at least no fatalities and it seems that whoever was in involved whoever was
7:04 am
implicated in the attack and getting are getting better but generally looking at the narrative in among the block of countries who seem to agree on that it was russia behind it there's no question about who did there's a question about how we how exactly russia did it so did the did the just give a direct order to kill script. or did russia somehow lost track of the nerve agent lover of circular of stress that russia had no motive that russia has no beef with the circus crippled for at least two decades now since the since the double agent swap with the u.k. back in two thousand and ten so more school was hoping to get some answers out of the u.k. . and if and lavrov has said how russia will treat this incident if more school doesn't get any answers have a listen. in the belittling of our british colleagues to answer the questions will
7:05 am
mean only one think it's a work of fiction and be more specific provocation orchid's so a provocation so wednesday is the date is the day when russia expects the o.p.c. w. and the u.k. hopefully to come through with some details on their investigation ok alright for now thanks for picking us up to speed on a question of thanks a lot. for picking up on what you were saying about the way this is covered in the headlines geopolitical author david swanson says that despite information being scarce the media's already delivered its verdict well it's not a judicial procedure this is not something brought to arbitration this is not the world court this is an accusation through the media and so russia is not being told very much and the public is not being told very much and of course that makes many of us yep tical but we just can't know whether the accusations are
7:06 am
true or not until we're shown some evidence and some western leaders are also claiming that the whole world is on their side against russia wilts patience is wrong they're wearing thin with president putin and his actions we stand with our british allies and the rest of the civilized world it has become clear that russia is behind this put to kill innocent civilians with the banned nerve agent. but let's take a look at the world as the u.k. and u.s. officials put it anyway the countries that support britain's position on the nerve agent attack it seems that much of the backing comes from nato members and not even all of them and it's something we discussed with david swanson as well. well i think they think of themselves as the world the international community which is always just a handful of nations that calls itself that of but you know in the united states here we've become very used to baseless accusations against russia and so some of
7:07 am
us are very skeptical regardless of the position taken by our governments we can't know whether an accusation is true or not until they show us some evidence and rather than showing us some evidence they're working on expelling diplomats and pressuring other countries to expel diplomats which seems like a way to cut off communications or you diplomats jobs are to interact when there are disagreements and if you get rid of them you're talking about you know not having communications other than by means of military force. israel being slammed for how its military is handling ongoing protests at the gaza border the so-called march of return has already left seventeen killed and more than a thousand injured over the weekend according to palestinian health ministry.
7:08 am
deferred to their people demonstrating remember the wall of fire and water are driving here to fight for drug. so. the annual march of return is a demonstration denouncing israeli occupation thousands of palestinians have
7:09 am
pitched tents across five locations where they're expected to stay for the coming weeks world leaders have condemned israeli actions were blamed for applying double standards by the israeli prime minister is daniel hawkins now explains this isn't the first incident of mass palestinian casualties in clashes with the i.d.f. tragically it won't be the last the border violence had barely stopped before the criticism of israel's actions came thick and fast from all directions the u.n. secretary general was quick to call for a full investigation he used foreign affairs chief wasn't far behind israel though is having none of it the army was doing its job if anything the soldiers that fired live bullets into the crowd deserve a medal according to the country's defense minister and investigation no chance they'd nor the murder of hundreds of thousands of civilians in the middle east but when israel neutralize the sixteen terrorists they can been in the mergence emitting of the un security council the i.d.f. will not cooperate with an investigative committee let them investigate the murders

of half a million people in syria and tens of thousands of libya's sit down and yemen no punches polled and some may say he does have a point multiple states have taken part in nato or u.s. led interventions in libya and syria which have contributed to civilian losses and of course they also continue to arm saudi arabia that's the spike the catastrophic situation yemen but some world leaders return the focus to friday's brutal violence on the gaza border with president branding it an inhumane attack and prime minister netanyahu didn't let this go on answered the most moral army in the world will not be lectured by those who. screw minutely born civilian populations for years apparently this is how april fools day celebrated an anchor on a thinly veiled reference to turkey's tough line on kurdish groups who are unable terrorists or perhaps the turkey's ongoing military operations in northern syria
7:11 am
triggering a further response from the turkish president. hey netanyahu you're an occupier and it is as an occupier that you are on those lands at the same time you are a terrorist and the e.u. itself wasn't exempt from the turkish president's rhetoric don't throw stones from a glass house. one month's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter is an older dog but today it seems human life has become less valuable political expediency or a good soundbite journalist maximum fellow who's written extensively on the israeli palestinian conflict says that it looks like netanyahu and blaming each other for basically the same things slightly amused by the denunciations exchanged by between benjamin netanyahu and turkish leader receptively bird on. both are accusing one another of massive human rights crimes and both are correct. one
7:12 am
another has committed gigantic human rights crimes netanyahu in gaza name against the palestinian people in general in order one now enough. in syria i compared this spat between netanyahu in order one to the two thousand and four film alien versus predator were two monsters battle one another to the death and you know in real life as i mentioned netanyahu and erdogan are cooperating below the surface neither man can claim the moral high ground so both are basically battling from the moral depths of depravity the evacuation of militants from the syrian city of duma in eastern guta started just according to russia's defense ministry russia earlier announced that a preliminary deal had been reached with the jaish al islam rebel group which operates in the city and so far over one hundred militants have left the last rebel stronghold in the besieged area.
7:13 am
the. gun control debate in the united states is gaining momentum with conservative fox news host laura ingram essentially forced off by a boy called jacqueline who has the details the bigger they are the harder they
7:14 am
fall a lesson that one of the most popular hosts on fox news the most watched cable news network in the us is learning the hard way over a dozen of laura ingram top advertisers have pulled their commercials from her program and fox's the week off the host is now taking was preplanned but many think it may have something to do with seventeen year old david hogg he is one of the survivors of the parklane school shooting and is practically a household name in america at this point this is the start of the spring and the blossoming of our democracy. because since the tragedy he's become one of the leaders of the student led gun reform movement that's took the nation by storm between t.v. appearances and mass protests hog's face is everywhere joining me now from parklane florida a senior david hogg he survived the shooting david thank you for being with us guys it is so great to have you both back on the show more people died in america as a result of gun violence and they have fighting in war and time for debate it's
7:15 am
time to work together let's put the usa over the n.r.a. in a recent interview hog mentioned that he had been rejected by a number of universities and for some unknown reason ingram decided to mock the student online belittling his grade point average and told him to stop whining now in a different day and age with different players the whole thing may have gone unnoticed but hog who now has. over seven hundred thousand twitter followers chose to use this way to successfully get ingram's and advertisers to boycott her show she's only apologizing after a third of her advertisers pulled out and i think it's really disgusting the fact that she basically tried promoting her show after apologizing or apologizing to me from a tweet that she made she is she may very well never come back again that's the power of this this is a buyout eighty group of people who have been almost a knowing kid as on touchable this is professional professional
7:16 am
plan and organized the democrats don't have any issues they have this one they don't like trump that's that's their platform but this is the only thing that counts as an issue. they hate guns they hate gun owners a. gun manufacturers this isn't going anywhere and the laura ingram fox news story may change but it will manifest in transmute into a new issue before you know it and frankly his attack against it makes perfect sense as there is no wealth lost between her and the left we may be witnessing a turning point in the american political climate outspoken leftist voices like hog and his fellow activists were more or less sidelined they were just the angry kids mad that their agenda was not passing through god now they have a powerful movement and
7:17 am
a lot of momentum behind them that they're clearly not afraid of using and their cause is getting the attention and support of a number of democratic heavyweights including hillary clinton barack obama and even bernie sanders as well let me especially think the young people at the high school in pok lynn florida who are dealing with their grief. by standing up and fighting back for many trump was seen as the voice of the people everyday americans whose concerns were often ignored by those in washington but today a lot of voice has taken center stage. with china and america have been exchanging blows as a trade war brews between the world's largest economies will bring you up to speed on that and more after this quick break.

when you have no clean water no health care no infrastructure those are all symptoms of a greater problem in haiti and that greater problem is imperialism that greater problem is debt dependency and domination that haiti has had to deal with since it became the first. free republic ruled by black people since eighteen zero four.

7:21 am
a large portion of the time in public opinion as an act of defiance a kind of violation of sovereignty on italian soil what has been said very clearly by italian authorities is that. italian police were not informed by by french customs agent. about your peroration which is against the provisions of the by the national agreements. now this is just the latest migrant related scandal on the french italian border if you've been watching out in the past couple of weeks you've seen this report on a volunteer who was arrested a couple of weeks ago for helping actually pregnant migrant in the alps. we were doing an ordinary patrolling to as we have regularly done since the beginning of winter to bring aid to people who passed the pass in difficult conditions during this patrol we spoke to the group of people who were walking in snow there we saw that it was a family with two young children and pregnant women we gave them food and drinks
