5:30 pm
could well have been faked and actually directly accused the media of trying to manipulate public opinion by putting those videos out oversea strong claims made against the press already there they become even stronger when you look that chancellor angela merkel specifically cited these videos in her admonishment of the anti migrant demonstrators of the far right demonstrators in the city of candidates and elsewhere across germany there's been a lot of calls for mr marson to produce some proof to back up his claims and fact members of the left party the social democrats and the greens here in germany call for a palm tree inquiry into the comments of mr marson and actually gone some of gone so far as to say that he should be stripped of his position and the s.p.d. risking the government that mr mustn't be removed from office since he's using his agency says seventy to present only those who've been reporting about the horrible events in chemists and spreading this information and indeed he's clearly
5:31 pm
supporting the propaganda of the n.t. and events in general. mr martin's task is to expose the enemies of the constitution and his latest comments will result in the exact opposite if he fails to immediately provide proof for his clients that's why we have the s.p.d. have decided to call a parliamentary hearing next week so that mr marston has the opportunity to back up his assertions german interior minister. mr marson is direct boss says he still has faith in him as head of the however he must produce some proof to back up those claims that he made and it's certainly said to be a busy week it would seem. he's also facing accusations that he handed off intelligence assessments into alternative for germany the f.t. . secret meetings with the minutes held some kind of bias towards them well it deny that they were handed any documents or any secret meetings took place but
5:32 pm
there is still a lot of people looking to mr marson asking questions about this incident as well as the interview he gave to build and those people want answers immediately. now it's our stories look for not half past midnight here in moscow remember you can always download the r.t.i. up for news on the go don't it's a thing. oh i'll come to stanley in kalam sophie shevardnadze as bright minds gather here at
5:33 pm
the european house numbers at a forum that it will it should be prepared for import taxes from washington as well i think reactions can be considered that swing this tour but at the end of the name of the you know. trumps protectionism is affecting today more european union and china. the decisions that took until now where the season's first against the friends their allies because the friends the allies like european union or like can of there were like mexico where countries without any. any customs and the protection is with the us we were really in a very good relationships in terms of trade china already. has many many barriers with us so the decisions of trump are affecting today more
5:34 pm
european union canada mexico than china so this is why we are so angry with him and we would this is why our reaction is in terms of a counter react. to the u.s. but also in terms of turning to east what i would think could hear a pin slapping terrorists in retaliation to add hostile action is maybe a strong thing to do but that does not put an end to the trade war itself so is there anything else other than new trade taxes then you can do and turning to the east we can hope. the democrats can defeat trump in the next election if this is no one here is that he would be elected the first time but at the end of the day. i think you know trump is doing what he said in the electoral campaign i'm not surprised by the direction he took the point is that the direction is the wrong one because is that the direction say by saying american first and american
5:35 pm
industry first is to the most racial that we can start with with trade wars and trade was among western countries among w.t.r. countries among west and east are the way to waste opportunities to destroy jobs to destroy the recovery in our part of the word this is why i think the retaliation reaction and the global trade. act from of you did european union that is why i mentioned. the eastern countries but i can mention also for instance mexico we have to. have a new deal with mexico because it's it's so the most traditional that we want to be proactive and positive towards north america but we can't accept this attitude of
5:36 pm
the spectrum so you have like you said in the beginning of the interview that whatever is happening is a mortal threat to us but i've also heard in an interview say that transpire. style attitude towards you or is actually going to help you or grow up it's funny because that's what we russians say about the sanctions the sanctions will help us grow up but are you guys actually when i say you the europeans ready to defy america like serious issues for instance iran sanctions i think iran is is. is really next and acceptable what happens on iran so i think we have to think how to avoid the bad consequences of decisions on on the run it depends on the next elections it depends whether trump will be reelected to or not because one scenario is from
5:37 pm
a sort of parenthesis one term and then is a sort of nightmare that can command up and we can start again with this. strong alliance and strong. working together between the u.s. and europe if trump. gets reelection in twenty. that is profoundly different and this is why i think the next months will be important also for two to follow this does evolution ok so let's talk a little bit about italy europe relations with russia because here upon russia have separate relations i mean they're much more tied historically and economically than fresh air in america because russia america is more strategic partnership more than anything else so. practically all the public to go forces in italy that you know i've come across. they are for close cooperation with law sco i don't know any
5:38 pm
italian politician whether it's from conservative or democratic or the alternative parties that would say we need to make war with russia all of them are saying we need to cooperate with moscow that's only way but then when it comes to lifting the sanctions the only thing italy can do is just you know vote against the automatic extension of sanctions why do you think rome can be. stronger and saying maybe we should get rid of the sanctions if we understand that this doesn't benefit italy politically or economically. italy's the country as you know with the best i think relationship with russia in terms in the comic terms in political terms so it is clear it is not hidden nothing need an agenda for italy to overcome this situation but at the same time we are within the european union and
5:39 pm
within your opinion and. there's a mixed feeling and they're very. why there and complex scenario on this topic i think it's it's necessary to work well together to try to overcome the situation is the interests of europe of all euro is the interest of italy i think that in today's interest of russia to choice necessary to work all together to to have an evolution you mentioned the u.s. and europe it is clear that there's a different interest to different eastern interest is because geopolitics is forward by two words geography and full effects. and for geography europe and russia we are neighboring countries so we have to co-exist we have to work together we have to cooperate that is not the case for us so this is why
5:40 pm
the key point for ours is that. the consideration of in the next future a path away a road map on how to overcome sanctions is in our interest is in the interest of for the european union but i think it is indeed interests of russia to this is why we. we we hope russia surely is trying to play the sanctions are helping. that i can tell you but. i don't want to get your personal view on this what is this about like mcallen council russia or chancellor merkel comes to russia and every time they speak out of russia it's all about bridging the gaps not about the gaps ok they talk about importance of being together and moving forward together and the minute they're home facing their audiences it's all about you know super anti-rational rhetoric is this for the audiences this is for the voters of what is
5:41 pm
this thing of once where in russia talking to put in we say one thing and as soon as we go back home we need to pursue the usual rhetoric or else will be seen as what because it is necessary to understand that this diplomatic situation needs a diplomatic it was a private and very wise approach meaning that we have maybe two separate we have to cooperate for many things and we have to freeze and it would be the problems that we are having without raising these problems as. the finance say questions. cooperating enough to research on other issues and knowing that the european union is composed by the twenty eight countries among these countries we have to respect the fact that some of them have a different approach than the one we having as italians and if
5:42 pm
a macy's the demonstration of the fact that on foreign policy the european union has to. to make steps and to have more steps in terms of unification of the position and saying that maybe we need to have an institutional framework to take decisions majority to without finding always the consensus rule but you know it's an internal problem of the european union in a problem because the difference is that russia is one country with one president and one parliament european union means twenty eight countries one european parliament plus twenty eight and national government national parliament one commission so there's a clear and balanced institutional situation and i think it's necessary for russia that would nor also will this difference russia knows very well president putin knows you will very well and he knows the complexity of the european.
5:43 pm
institutional let's stick to him and these differences a big difference and take a short break right now while we're back we'll continue talking to you and they collect that italy's former prime minister and we're discussing what's going on inside the european union right now stay with us. join me every first week on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to get out of the world of politics small business i'm show business i'll see that.
5:44 pm
in twenty forty you know bloody revolution. the demonstrations going from being relatively peaceful protests to be increasingly violent. revolution is always spontaneous. is it you know we're here to put a premium let's put video dream in the new bill is that are you willing needle the former ukrainian president recalls the events of twenty fourteen. thousand that stood over a billion dollars to assist ukraine in these and other cars that will ensure a secure and prosperous and democratic. and we're back with and we call that dayton is former prime minister mr lads and let's talk about the differences within europe because you're probably one of the
5:45 pm
best speakers to speak for the european union as a whole so the refugee crisis which is hitting europe really hard right now italy hungary are creating a united front against migration is there actually six support of austria and a vicious group. there saying the european parliament elections of twenty nine thousand it's going to be a referendum of europe without borders that and then michael has proposed against europe that protects itself this division i mean can this be something fatal or apart i think you're right that european elections next year will be maybe the most important european elections ever in the european history european parliament elections were always elections in reach. it seems a joke but it is reality europe was not the matter was not the core of the discussion. each country was having european elections to discuss the mess because
5:46 pm
there's to try to check the popularity of the government and so on and so forth it is the first time that the european elections will change in any way the european path because you know for twenty years until now the european parliament was formed around to be peeled political peelers center left center right all the political decisions even on russian sanctions or trade issues are the outcome of an agreement between these two political families so the european parliament political landscape it's an easy seat landscape because you have two groups you have to do you need the agreement between two groups and that's it that will change next year next year you will have fragmentation probably it would be necessary to have the agreement among four groups to need to have
5:47 pm
a majority that means i completely different. decision making process at the repeal of a i think next year in this very period we will see over the old good times of twenty seventeen or twenty sixteen because the european parliament would be completely different and in this european parliament. the other main point will be . are the populous parties running together in a unique group in a unique front or are them divide it. because of course if they are united and if they get no twenty twenty five thirty percent of the votes that change a lot of european life and this is why next year it will be a turning point of the european political life you mentioned migrations
5:48 pm
you know migrations is the typical topic where the inter-governmental role. doesn't work because if you have twenty eight head of state and government meeting around the table and the topic here is our many migrants you take on many migrants can give you it doesn't work because the answer would be always zero i want zero i as prime minister of my country upon one migrants i want zero but if you have refugees coming you need to have a supreme national organisation the european commission taking the responsibility to say these syrian refugees we need to welcome them and so we have to redistribute them within the member states and it is not.
5:49 pm
goodwill of one country saying that i can take one thousand i can take one hundred but it's it's a different way with the intergovernmental role it would be impossible to solve the migrant problems in the way it was looking right now i don't know what's going to be in ears to come right now your new government italy's new government doesn't want migrants in italy and is even threatening not to pay its share on the migration issue into the e.u. budget here but you know it's a contradiction this agreement between italy and hungary is a contradiction because italy is the country of first entry in the european union and it is first entry because italy's the mediterranean country like greece so it is almost impossible to block any arrival because of the cost of geography of italy so the first need to futilely is to
5:50 pm
have solidarity of the rest of the european union when we have refugees or. arriving we need the other countries showing solidarity towards us and the less giving so little it is ordered by and hungary hungary they don't want to have any migrants so the big contradiction is that italy needs exactly the opposite italy needs a european situation in which. you know we had a crisis in fifteen thirteen that was a very difficult crisis but if you have five hundred thousand. refugees arriving and if you are a continent of five hundred million people if you spread all these migrants in all the continent you can at the end of the day welcome them you can leave
5:51 pm
with this problem but if you are welcome there only in one country italy or in one country germany the problem is absolutely and conceivable and unsolvable this is why only a utopian solution can give some answers to produce migrant flows of course we have to control our works than a border not for open doors of europe to all migrants it's not manageable but for refugees coming from wars that the west. you know euro afghanistan syria these three countries of origin are the countries of half of the refugees during this crisis and these three countries where the big mistakes of the of the west of the u.s. first of all over the years show it is necessary to give an answer but it is
5:52 pm
a unified once for so what are the chances of really briefly because we're coming to an end of a man in a close proposed to reform to be implemented to come to life with so many obstacles on the way i mean you know the german backing you need chancellor merkel to back you she her position at home was weakened germans are very wary of anything pan-european because they hear that and they automatically think they need to pay for everything especially poor countries so she will have to back this reform back you and maybe we can her position at home this and then the germans also saying that for this reform to undergo all parliaments need to agree which is like an impossible thing to do what are the chances of this reform or. we coming to ask how realistic it is and do you still believe that in my uncle is the big unifier among many bad news in the last period at the european level there was one good news the good news was the agreement between france and germany on some reforms of the euro
5:53 pm
area they had this agreement at the end of june before summer in mezzeh burke and i think italy has all the interest to shoe poor to and to have the possibility to implement part of this agreement this agreement is an agreement on how to create a euro budget a euro budget needs for his and to create an insurance against unemployment into italy needs social measures social measure measures to complete the arch director of the utah because the euro is a financial that's director with a lack of the social people so easily needs and what i would like to see is my government pushing for reform in that direction not for less europe because we have the euro the euro is there so we have to complete the it should take two or so
5:54 pm
what germans and french agreed in mezzeh burke was a first step that was interesting it is in our own interest as italians there are many difficulties and i'm not i'm not sure that all these reforms can be approved because of the differences and also because of the fact that the main problem in the next months will be breaks it if you ask me. what is the biggest warrior you have to be it is not. oh all we talked about it is blacks because we are growing towards but x. it toward the cliff edge as we say or worse a disaster there's no plan. even no plan b. and there are even no plan c. there's just. approaching march the twenty ninth with the idea then the day after would be a disaster and this disaster we create
5:55 pm
a big financial instability and we will suffer a lot this is why i am really worried about what exit and this is why breaks it you have to add extra to the old what i said about next year elections the elections would be in may breaks it would be end of march we will have i think i fear. very set. and we would love. to think about the future a few thinking that we have to overcome all these difficulties and next year would be a very complicated you. overcome the difficulties of the past and thank you very much for this.
5:56 pm
us president donald trump is on the complete reversal on syria. what accounts for this why and what's next. the french president to manual microland sparks. on line a video emerges of him talking to a group of migrants some of whom claim they've been living illegally in the country for years. also coming up on the program sweden's ruling social democrat suffered their worst election result in a century while the insurgents' sweden democrats make major gains with their hard
5:57 pm
