7:07 pm
the british army has issued a top level security alert over russian t.v. journalists the u.k. military and media accuse him of spying after he was said to have been acting suspiciously outside an army base this is how he himself explained what exactly happened. i would very much want to know what exactly happened we're being accused of espionage while we were just doing our job we didn't break any u.k. laws on november twenty second and i remember that day perfectly well has been mentioned in the mail on sunday article we went to the military base which is one hundred kilometers from london that's location of brigade seventy seven we did a package about it we drove by the base stopped approached the security guards i introduced myself presented my id they took pictures of my documents my car then we recorded my piece to camera we recorded it on a professional video camera we didn't try to get inside the base something claimed by the mail on sunday we made our intentions clear that we wanted to film outside
7:08 pm
and that's exactly what we did instead we being branded spice the credentials of the journalists that were presented to the security guards they were later leaked to the media that's the spite or government memo saying for internal use only. the defense ministry sent out a warning which contains my photograph id it's number plates these are the documents i presented to the security guards at the base that's when they took pictures when these pictures were put in the memo how they got leaked to the press i have no idea but what's important is that in this memo if you look closely there's a note for internal use only despite that this secret memo is now all over the media to mercer as if it is the bureau chief for russia's channel one in london and he was doing a story about the seventy seventh brigade which is sort of the cyber warfare unit
7:09 pm
for the british military and considering that the british government spends quite a lot of time talking about the so-called russian threat and the threat from hybrid warfare and russian reporters interested in this brigade is pretty much self-explanatory the russian embassy is also upset that the reporters personal details have been published online it is offensive that the personal data of russian journalists including their ids in the license plate of their car were made public it in danger security of russian citizens let alone the fact that it's a blatant violation of the norms generally recognized in civilized countries and this wasn't an isolated news report in fact the stories really snowballed it was printed originally yesterday but it's been reprinted by most of the newspapers here in the u.k. today and now even the defense secretary gavin williamson has made a statement about it he's called on members of the public to report any suspicious
7:10 pm
activity outside of british military bases and allow me to add a little legal disclaimer strictly speaking and i've just consulted our media lawyer about this it isn't against the law to film on public land even if it is just outside a military base many a journalist has. dunnit i certainly i have no one ever leaked my press credentials or accuse me of being a russian spy in the process but there is an important caviar in terms of the law the military can take action against anyone acting suspiciously outside a british military base. we sent an inquiry to the defense ministry there's a formal no website but we didn't get any response filming near the base is not illegal it's a public area of public land you don't need permission to film there you need permission to get inside talk to the stuff we didn't record our interaction with
7:11 pm
the security personnel we didn't try to penetrate the base or b.b.c. correspondent did the exact same thing as us it was broadcast and no one thinks that punishing him is nothing illegal and yet the story printed in the mail on sunday yesterday had the headline russian t.v. spies a court at top secret army base now first of all it's not top secret you can get its location pretty much very easily but with two clicks on the internet the art school also goes on to feature an academic who warns that all reporters working for russian news channels are potential spies which is a claim that frankly i find absolutely terrifying looking at it from where i am and given how tense relations between the u.k. and russia are at the moment the most suspicious thing about this reporter is that he is a russian citizen working for a russian news channel and as a commentator john gaunt told us he thinks the security scare was linked to the
7:12 pm
poisoning of the screwballs. russian journalist monster a story about one of our bases that's the story did he gain no t.v. show his credentials yes were his credentials false no where they who reset he was obviously is just nonsense i just don't understand why our government want to carry on with this this tit for tat nonsense it's all tied in with this cripples isn't it we know this is all tied in with the fact that we haven't got conclusive evidence either way and it's just part of the anti russia rhetoric and i for one is a very serious one and frankly fed up of it frankly fed up to the back teeth of it i won jaw jaw with the russians and i'm sure most people want that rather than war war whether it's a false cold war like this or whether it's military led is just nonsense spain's far right has achieved a major breakthrough winning seats in a regional parliament for the first time in almost four decades we'll have
7:13 pm
a story in more just after this short break. what politicians do something. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. want to be rich.
7:14 pm
if you're going to be for the survival of israel the more people are. interested always in the why. you. should. go back to our teens or national a new crew has arrived at the international space station on monday that's off for a six hour flight and successful docking so uses the first mission since a failed launch almost two months ago the three person international team is led by caps and oleg kalugin and co the russian cosmonaut is the most experienced with four flights already under his belt he's joined by canadian astronaut david some jacques and americans claim for them it's their first mission in space they were
7:15 pm
welcomed by the three already their surrogate procopius on chancellor come on the alexander guest he will soon had backed out his money for national witness to take off from what russia's baikonur cosmodrome. now you hear the engines started working. as you. think. the rocket is already up in the skies will take a little bit more than six hours for the crude to dollar cuisia international space station's but today's launch is far from routine one why the thing is that so uses
7:16 pm
only new three accidents in there alone he story. never read fatalities but always leading to missions aborted a in nineteen seventy five a nine hundred eighty three in the maze two recent one happened just seven weeks ago in october during the last manned flight and here's my report on why today's launch is so different and so important. because tempers takeoff started smoothly but ninety seconds into the flight something went wrong and really hoped it would have been.
7:17 pm
well separating the rocket stages bumped into each other a fifty meters three hundred ton construction was quite bold the automatic emergency system immediately aborted the mission and undone the crew capsule. instead of going to the international space station they landed in kazakhstan's and liz steps hundreds of kilometers from way they had taken off just minutes earlier by colonel orange side is intentionally remote back in the nineteen fifties at the height of the cold war it was a practical necessity to hide the spaceport away from prying western eyes but also away from the pope to avoid victims in case of a rocket disaster this will dinner's is where they merge and see capsule with two fortunate crew members landed safely. at the rescue training is part of an obligatory routine before every launch helicopters jeeps
7:18 pm
navigation systems are involved and people are in how to coordinate to find the crew quickly and they stand their skills saved two lives. the russian cosmonaut and american astronaut seemed unharmed after the incident on believe the blue given that they fell from a height of fifty kilometers making a steep ballistic descend under force many times stronger than gravity some cold days and miracle. a special commission was formed do investigate what went wrong three weeks later they reached a conclusion a sensor that was supposed to detect the separation of the stagers was faulty but it surely the reason behind the failure was operational the accident occurred due to a fault in a sensor this year that only happened at the assembly stage at the baikonur cosmodrome.
7:19 pm
in no way witnessing that event to me was actually reassuring in that the smart design over the so use and the incredible work of this witness who people here on the ground can do i really do every every village i went inside. feeling absolutely safe is a bit small. then i have to say as any time i wish. i could take part in the design. donald trump has said he would like to see an end to what he called an uncontrollable global arms race and lamented his country's huge military spending. i'm certain that sometime in the future president g. indicts together with president putin of russia will still talking about a meaningful halt to what has become a major and uncontrollable arms race the u.s. spent seven hundred sixteen billion dollars this year crazy well with donald trump
7:20 pm
you just don't know his reputation over the course of the last two years in the oval office has been one of rather unpredictable behavior now in august he signed a bill for seven hundred sixteen billion dollars in pentagon spending now that is sixteen billion dollars more than in twenty eighteen but now he says military spending is crazy and throughout this time he has had no problem talking up military spending and talking up the u.s. military this is donald trump was submitted a new budget to rebuild our military we will give the men and women of america's armed services the resources you need beautiful new planes and beautiful new equipment you've been lacking a little equipment we're going to load it up so sixteen billion dollars more than the previous year now you would think perhaps this is to fight terrorism against the rise of terrorism around the world well according to the secretary of defense
7:21 pm
actually this increase is due to russia and china let's take a listen but we will continue to prosecute the campaign against terrorists that we're engaged in today but great power competition not terrorism is now the primary focus of u.s. national security we face growing threat from revisionist powers as different as china and russia or from each other nations that do seek to create a world consistent with their authoritarian models pursuing veto authority over and other nations economic diplomatic and security decision now trump says he doesn't want a new arms race however he did pull out of a very key nuclear agreement when nobody was threatening to break it let's review. right here to the agreement they should have been done years ago but still people come to this and we have more money than anybody else by far we'll build it up but until they come to their senses when they do then we'll old guard and won't stop
7:22 pm
and by the way not only will review when it comes to china trump likes to emphasize that he and china's president xi are good friends however he's been imposing a huge number of tariffs on china and there have been a number of military drills in the south china sea furthermore you know there's also the annual nato drills right on russia's doorstep but he says he wants to get along with russia as well let's review these drills that are taking place.
7:23 pm
now after all this action we now see donald trump on twitter speaking up complaining about high military spending and envisioning kind of a rosy future where washington moscow and beijing walk down the yellow brick road together in peace and harmony however he could reverse himself this is donald trump and he is known to be rather unpredictable independent political analyst and some to bruno told us trump's mecurio approach to foreign policy is not doing us any favors. prompts diplomacy as sort of introduced in his book the art of the deal is this rug that he goes in he may give you a compliment one day and then completely break you down the next promises to improve relations with russia greatly so far i haven't seen any evidence of it and even the. look at the nuclear peace with the north korea seems to be
7:24 pm
stalling so everything tells me that military spending will continue as planned if not more trouble will be more for the united states than for our foreign partners because now. trump has lost his negotiator. advantage because people will be able to read him much more clearly. never take him at face value always and the standard he's playing some kind of game. a far right party has entered a regional spanish parliament for the first time in almost forty years on the spanish socialist workers party won the majority of seats in local elections in under two three or the far right vox party managed to bag twelve seats much of the concern of the socialist leader. are you going to the official reaction there's been a real sad back for the left and a loosely with the most serious thing is that the extreme right his interest in this new political look tural cycle in spain and his interdependent lucy in
7:25 pm
parliament for the first time this phenomenon which has been taking place in the rest of europe and the world has now reached spain and the endos in parliament. and the looting is the most populous region of spain and the country's third largest economy after catalonia and dread its quite high unemployment and is the main rival point in spain for migrants crossing the mediterranean the vox party is a new come on the scene and analysts think it's excess that increased pressure on the spanish prime minister has also anxious especially with european elections approaching next year in may at what theo founder of the barcelona and republican think tank told us the rise of far right movements is not a problem isolated to spain maybe they will not now and that we may be right back we don't know but they are really important now because they out. of their own nation make sure that there is a generational connection to all of our great politics now so. it's not
7:26 pm
just the plane or in london or a lot more from anything i know will. happen on may because we have. a money. election and elections. so. there are things to learn to elect in and i think that's what happened yesterday at the beginning of the change in spain that may be. right but he will have a lot of representation so. that's it for us our from myself on the team here at r.t. thank for staying soon join us again at four am was a good time for the global news headlines.
