military support. i just want you to tell me whether you would support a u.s. military intervention we are doing everything to be able to put as much pressure as published so that we do not get into that kind of a scenario in which nobody would wish to have the u.s. backed venezuelan opposition leader bronze medals regime a dictatorship president himself accused. of attempting to stage a coup with washington's help and as the situation intensifies what's happening in venezuela looks to some like a case of history repeating itself and they grieve you think the whole world is too fullish to notice either you stand with the forces of freedom or you're in league with and his mayhem when we stand with the syrian people or with their oppressors the former dura regime has oppressed its people for years repressive regime of bashar al assad the tyranny of the now defunct mature regime the assad regime its brutality and repression active threat to the entire region growing threat to
regional peace and security it is time for men to her own to go it's time for assad to get out of the way. the stories of syria venezuela and the protest movements there are from two separate books but can someone tell me why anyone who's in charge of america always reads off the same manual when their national interest rate or spots another regime change opportunity let's go through the steps that are a must venezuela versus syria some great examples for you. people in american politics have a special sense for legitimacy what if they have a device for that or something from our perspective he has lost legitimacy he has failed to deliver on the promises he's made in its role as the only legitimate branch of government duly elected by the venezuelan people the national assembly
invokes the country's constitution to declare nicolas maduro illegitimate and the office of the presidency therefore vacant you see the manual so great that even donald trump couldn't help picking it up after hillary. yes the idea is not just to start backing the opposition you physically got to be there with them was it was. oh. oh. now that's a classic what could be more classic it almost makes you imagine that as kids all american politicians are told when you grow up you'll never succeed unless you sanctions and filthy regime syria check venezuela. check will keep increasing sanctions to cut off the regime with the money it needs
to survive we're going to announce sanctions against patro is to venezuela associate the name we're paid of day says it's known by its spanish acronym the state owned oil monopoly since the opposition in places like venezuela or syria are pretty much aware of the contents of the manual they know when it's the right time for them to start asking for weapons armed rebels defected soldiers there will always be those who would be happy to get new guns that are going to solana has been is going on so much time that we make a request to the us he says to support us in logistical terms of communication with weapons so we can realize venezuelan freedom what we need the is and oneness and until and until the science back to the states and the people in charge there when you're only one step away from sending your old army in to get the job done don't forget to say that all options are on the table that your agreement which is
all options always all options are on the. you know what all of this was unintentional never planned we will stop to topple the regime at all to throw out governments we cannot resolve someone else's civil war through force is that also in the manual. following washington's lead the european union is also turning up the heat on venezuelan president nicolas maduro with brussels now ending its full support why don't the e.u.'s foreign policy chief has outlined possible measures that could be taken against my daughter's government a puter all over now investigates better reka mockery has announced what's being called an international contact group all venezuela it will be made up of european union members as well as latin american partners what she says is this is definitely not going to be any official attempt at mediation in the venezuelan
crisis this is really a talking shop getting people together getting discussions going while venezuela tries to sort out its problems using the mechanisms that already exist in the venezuelan constitution but while she was saying that she also said that there could well be further sanctions from e.u. member states against venezuela those would be sanctions that targeted the government. sanctions targeted sanctions in place really that would be new unanimously recently and. elements of sanctions might be considered by the ministers in the coming days if we would not see positive developments any sanction that's not. that's not. implemented by the security council is illegal so all the sanctions that the u.s. simplemente against have been stolen people are illegal according to international law the e.u. parliament passed a resolution on venezuela in its says that they recognize one quite doe as the
legitimate interim president of venezuela they reject any type of violent solution to the ongoing impasse in the country and they also support fully a proposal by the un secretary-general for a full and independent investigation into deaths in venezuela let's have a listen to what was said in brussels i mean the european parliament is the first european institution to do this nude asked member states to do the same as quickly as possible in order to ensure that we have a strong unified european position germany the u.k. and france had already said that they were going to give nicolas maduro until monday to call fresh elections otherwise they would be throwing their full support behind one quite though it almost seems certain that that's going to happen right now particularly when you hear from nicolas maduro that he has no intention of calling elections the next elections he sees in his country will be in twenty twenty five when his current term is supposed to end unfortunately e.u.
shows that it's incapable of taking an independent foreign policy they've made a bunch of noises about continuing to do business with iran despite the fact that the u.s. unilaterally illegally pulled out of the p five plus one deal and once again there are lining up behind washington's foreign policy maybe they've been promised some of the spoils john bolton the other day said openly in explicitly u.s. companies should go into venezuela and take the oil maybe they'll give a few table scraps to the europeans as well so that's what it would say that this is the largest oil reserves in the world so you can imagine how many hands in the u.s. in the e.u. are robin themselves together with glee and dissipating the windfall profits so with a. all eyes on venezuela right now with odo is actually gaining some international support with turkey china and russia calling him the only legitimate leader and while mr why doso if he wants to solve the country's urgent problems the russian
ambassador to caracas alleges the opposition is putting its political ambitions above everything else. the use of. the venezuelan opposition is indeed quite diverse but the political ambitions of the opposition play an essential role i can give you a specific example i happened to have several meetings with the representatives of the opposition and i asked them why they did not raise issues that really affect the people i mean the food shortage shortage of medicine or safety because every public survey shows these topics up public opinion their replies were vague and the only way i can explain it is that the political ambitions of the opposition happen to be more important for them than these hot button issues important to the majority of venezuelan citizens. on thursday hundreds of people took to the streets of athens and barcelona to declare their solidarity with the venezuelan government . outside the european union's headquarters or demonstrators in athens marched to
the parliament and the u.s. embassy carrying placards and venezuelan. political analyst. told us that international support will play a key role in venezuela. it's very important to get the support of russia china turkey and many other countries as well firm with zero so his people understand that there is international support that they're not that these countries are not going to let the democratically elected president be removed by undemocratic means or a coup when you look at what's going on in venezuela we're only one or two small events from it turning into a syria now i hear mention vietnam but i think it's a lot closer to what happened in syria you look at the opposition defected soldiers from the c.n.n. report requesting arms from trump well i mean that sounds very similar to what happens in two thousand and eleven when obama started the army people. on saturday
france will see more yellow vest marches but with a difference this time people won't just be calling for reforms but also paying tribute to those injured by excessive police force and previous rallies. were deliberately chose to follow through on the to route which is not much compared to what we did before going to have some injured people that will be the start of the march will also be speeches. the next day when i woke up from the operation i looked to myself in the mirror and said to myself it's not me it can be me today i don't dare look at myself in the mirror for me my life is destroyed. only in time of one hundred investigations have been opened against the french authorities over their controversial use of riot guns by police in recent months leading rights organizations in france want a blanket ban on the use of the weapon which fires go full size rubber bullets and has been causing serious injuries over the weeks of yellow vests protests.
i. spoken to one of the injured protesters who claims the government is not listening to its people. i understand now that the government is deaf to us that it couldn't hear the demands and the appeal was being made on the streets but now i see i who lost an eye that they are completely blind even on the basis of the videotapes they
were unable to accept responsibility for what is happening our efforts are peaceful that's my slogan i'm a humanist i want protesters to be protected and the greatest gift to me was when during act nine children came to kiss me to shake my hand they were happy to come to the protests with their parents so why call for an icky why call for everything to be broken it is not in our interests we are reasonable people we will not destroy our own country. profiting from a war crimes that's what a new report by human rights group amnesty international says certain tourists companies are doing by listing accommodation in disputed west bank settlements and this has prompted one israeli minister to call for amnesty to be banned from the country. israel has been illegally building settlements on palestinian land for decades but it's also removed it's of thousands of palestinians from the land and
israeli settlers who moved in these actions constitute war crimes the world's leading digital tourism companies promoted settlements as tourist destination be booking dot com expedia and trip advisor list hotels. attractions and tours in settlements. in the report amnesty international slams online booking companies for offering hundreds of places to stay in settlements across the west bank but for failing to state that they are in disputed territories a co-founder of the international solidarity movement adam shapiro says it wouldn't be the first time israel's banned organizations like amnesty i think the reaction by the years rose if they were to bear and this the international researchers would be you know sort of foolish although not only expected we've seen previously when the human rights watch researcher who is on the ground on worship here published
a report similar about there being the activities in the occupied territories israel moved immediately to have them removed from the country so far they have not been successful as the courts have intervened and there is a case going on but you know this is happened many times over the years where when initial organization or or any kind of monitor of what's going on in the occupied territories reports what's happening in israel moves to takes efforts to remove those people from being in the occupied territories and prevent others from coming to see israel has banned thousands of people myself included from entering the occupied territories and prevented thousands of others from entering because they suspect that people are coming to witness to bear witness to the occupation. one of the companies listed has previously come under fire for the same thing and is accused of failing to fulfill the promise to remove listings in disputed
settlements back in november now other companies name in the report have responded by insisting that they do in fact state clearly where the accommodation is located that the information they provide is a political. program and all your stories around the world continuing about. this is this you need to be the first one on top of the story or the person with the loudest voice of the biggest. truth to stand this is just the right questions and. answers.
seem wrong. to. trail. the party. to look for common ground. friday program here on r.t. and yet another twist in america's model a probe into alleged russian collusion it's refusing to share key evidence with the u.s. lawyers of one russian businessman who has been implicated our correspondent r.t.
is equal to an off because of the story. the prospect of proof coming from the miller investigation on any collusion may never see the light of day that's long been normalised by pundits but now the shroud of secrecy around the renowned russia probe is darkening further election meddling evidence could be out of reach even for the defense the united states of america respectfully opposes the motion of defendant concord management and consulting l l c for approval to disclose documents identified by the special counsel and sensitive for purposes of preparing for trial the defendant this time is a concord management consulting a firm managed by you've gainey proportion a russian multimillionaire nicknamed putin's chef for his catering commitments to the kremlin moto accuses him of being the chieftain of russian online trolls who allegedly played a role in this way in the twenty sixteen election in response his company hired
a law firm in the u.s. as you would but apparently some of the private information the lawyers had previously received from miller emersion lying for all to see it was published on twitter by the account hacking redstone which has then been suspended a representative of the online file sharing portal has confirmed to the f.b.i. . the specific account to used to publish the matching discovery materials was registered on oct nineteenth two thousand and eighteen but a user with an ip address that results to russia but a screenshot of the tweet allegedly showed the law firm had been hacked so apparently the attorneys had nothing to do with it it's not like they would voluntarily leak classified information why because of because the can that's why and some outlets sent this unique bandwagon crashing down the hill this
company when hired a pittsburgh law firm and was and has managed to essentially draw this out and use especially the legal system of the united states i guess the mother investigation so in history's paraded over the myriad of court cases where defendants would hire lawyers to world defend themselves against the accusations they pleaded not guilty to this one somehow stands out and what standard procedure in every single other case is using the legal system and this one but miller is totally cool with it now he has a perfectly good reason to deny the defense access to court materials which is any prosecutor's dream come true miller says he will only show the case docs to progression himself but making someone who will never come to the us to face these supposed charges and arrest dream on that is a problem of concorde's own making so how the tide has turned now anyone salivating
in anticipation of juicy collusion details might be better off waiting for russian hackers legal analyst lionel says prosecutors are typically robert eager to share their evidence. there is a concept of disclosing information which tends to be exculpatory meaning information which tends to work to your defense the prosecutor must always provide information evidence. to let you know the defendant what you are being charged with and what you can do to interpose a defense the only time a prosecutor wants to hide information from you is that if the information doesn't help the prosecutor if there's something that hurts the prosecutor i was a prosecutor we'd love to show you evidence of what we have against you we want you
to know everything that we have so that you think wow they've got me now so why is he doing this because either a he doesn't have any evidence b. there's something embarrassing he doesn't want you to see or see all of the above. so the u.s. economy in the grip of a deadly cold snap but some fear it's not just the record low temperatures to leaving people vulnerable. tonight the coldest air in a generation is pouring across the upper midwest breaking low temperatures will make the next few days the coldest the region has seen this take a look at chicago almost completely frozen over nearly ninety million americans are now in their grip of dangerous cold what would happen if russia killed the power in fargo today what would happen if all the natural gas lines just poof on the coal to stay in recent memory and it wasn't in our power whether or not to turn them back on i mean what would you do if you lost heat. fear very possible hack attack on
a gas pipeline system is based on a recent u.s. intelligence committee report says china and russia could pose a threat to the u.s. national security through malicious cyber activity targeting key infrastructure. china has the ability to launch cyber attacks that calls localized temporally disruptive of facts and critical infrastructure such as disruption of natural gas pipelines for days to weeks in the united states russia has the ability to execute cyber attacks in the united states that generate localized temporary disruptive effect some critical infrastructure such as disruption and electrical distribution network for at least a few hours there is no indication that russia has any ability to shut down any natural gas pipeline in fact the only thing that stated about russia is that they would have the ability to affect some power grid for a couple of hours well so do the people who are using too much electricity during a bit like what we're seeing right now the number of people using natural gas in
the dakotas right now and in that minneapolis area they are a greater threat to collapsing the grid then the russians and the chinese well the us media goes even further quoting officials are saying that russia has already compromised america's electrical grid hacking its way in via backdoor was want to get in says however that it's terrorists exploiting these vulnerabilities that people should really be worried about. wouldn't individual terror actors or individual hackers also be an equal or greater threat to the nation states who are doing the i can't just the everyday hackers be able to get into these same systems so why isn't she talking about that and talking about not that russia is the threat but the system that we have built that allows anyone to access these very important infrastructures isn't that the threat. thanks for sharing some of your friday with us here at all t. international now twenty five minutes past the hour here at moscow your world news continues at the top of the hour i.
