it's one pm here in moscow the headlines from our today donald trump is slammed by aid groups and congress for refusing to end america's support for the saudi led intervention in yemen people in new york think of the president's veto a. lot of. praise for. politicians and it's terrible. keep the news was long awaited report from russia collusions about to land later today there's already a storm brewing in the democratic camp over two. plus indigenous people in australia's northern territory take anger over fracking
6:01 am
on their doorstep right to parliament still. there's a whole range of risk factors and that's one of the problems the rest of us are really concerned about it's the water that could be directly impacted in the short term by this. thing around the world from russia this is out international from moscow. first than donald trump has refused to end america's support for the saudi led intervention in yemen the united states sells billions of dollars worth of arms to the kingdom's coalition forces for the ongoing airstrikes against toothy rebels now is coinciding too with warnings of a civilian cholera epidemic in yemen with two thousand suspected cases recorded every day four years of intense fighting have created what agencies say is the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
6:02 am
the trump ministration has faced bitter criticism for authorizing military supplies to. report president donald trump was elected on promises of ending u.s. involvement in the wars around the world great nations do not fight endless wars. but he's not particularly came in stopping u.s. help to saudi arabia and it's dead link campaign against gamma. i am returning here
6:03 am
with without my approval a joint resolution that proposed to direct the president to remove united states armed forces from him still it sees in were affecting the republic of yemen with so it's an exceptions probably used his presidential power to shoot down a resolution from congress but sought to end the u.s. involvement in the four year war since twenty fifteen the saudi led coalition along with the united states has been waging a deadly campaign against the rebels and their allies in yemen what more in march saudi arabia pledged a billion dollars to yemen while denying any culpability in the humanitarian crisis there pressure to end u.s. support escalated after the killing of jamal khashoggi a saudi journalist inside of riyadh's embassy in turkey the united states will no longer participate in the saudi mud. in the sword he learned the
6:04 am
vention in yemen which has caused the worst humanitarian crisis on earth limiting americans engagement in this war which is going on far too long we all agree but these cross party appeals fell on deaf ears barely denting trumps love for his favorite middle eastern monarchs tony arabia and i get along great with all of them they buy a party for me they spend forty million sixty million of my supposed to dislike him i like him very much but to be fair trump is certainly not the first u.s. president to lavish his affection on to the kingdom's rulers the united states and saudi arabia as of strong important friendship and he knows and i know that. the fact that he has chosen to take this first visit. to the united states is indicative of friendship between the united states and saudi arabia but where do the american people stand they want to. u.s.
6:05 am
alliance with saudi arabia it's terrible i'm against that for the u.s. to have a stands in financial support for such conflicts kind of says something that i'm not sure they really want to betray the message there's a lot of civilians that are paying the price for games that politicians tend to play i was a saloon flues with the saudis so i will be surprise about it is group just how the saudi works the u.s. relationship with saudi arabia boils down to billions of dollars in oil imports and weapons sales it's long been fundamental to u.s. foreign policy when it comes to the middle east region however now in the era of trump it seems pretty clear that certain voices are getting pretty sick of it caleb moppin r.t. new york international child who we didn't refugee council chipped in as well and says donald trump's veto will only mean more suffering and more death. the united states has an obligation. one of the leading nations and being
6:06 am
a main supporter of the coalition but also as one of the top donors of the yemeni humanitarian response it has a responsibility to make sure that the billions are protected the reality is otherwise we see that the u.s. is not holding this out do not go out in any way to account for the attacks on civilians here we are talking about the disproportionate. support by the united states towards one party that it's going to take that is the south of that but it moves like this one as mr surrounds. will last in any way in creating confidence on the ground and then leading to see this just exacerbating the suffering more bombs more weapons will mean more that yemenis are really.
6:07 am
suck in this war next the heavily redacted version of the report on the trump russia collusion is to be released later today it brings to a close than a two year long investigation into alleged russian links to don't trump campaign to the twenty sixteen presidential election last month a summary of a big report said there was no evidence to suggest conspired with moscow but i wasn't enough the democrats annex this lunchtime zipper trying to report even the release of this folder command later today isn't likely to put the accusations to bed. it was clear almost immediately that u.s. attorney general william barr wouldn't get away with just a letter to congress when the trump ating army saw or heard the words no collusion all they wanted was the full molar papers the big days arrived kind of i'll remind you of how exactly mr barr gave the ok i will be in
6:08 am
a position to move forward expeditiously in determining what can be released in light of. regulations and department to policies it looks like quite a few lines will be redacted william barton came up with four specific categories to be blacked out let's whip through those you won't see anything known as grand jury material info that could affect on go in legal cases data that could damage the privacy or interests of third parties and finally intelligence gathering sources and methods the left wings grip on the idea that donald trump obstructed justice is so tight that perhaps all that's left visible in the moeller report won't be enough for them anyway remember rachel maddow questioned blitz last month what attorney general william barr has just given to congress really does raise a lot of questions that we never thought we would be asking i think about how this
6:09 am
investigation is being resolved i bet she'll have many more after thursday's release the good news for the russia gaiters in the bar letter was the part that said the russians still tried to interfere even without any kind of collusion the special counsel's investigation determined that there were two main russian efforts to influence the twenty sixteen election and obviously in that bar baby memo there was no room for evidence of all the shady dealings the. moeller team has already triggered legal action against a russian company supposedly a meddling force without explaining to the firm's lawyers what they're using as proof for the indictment why is that info is too sensitive to be given out does that ring a bell what if the russians get hold of it plus nobody ever properly explained how it was found that russia hacked the democrat servers if investigators didn't get
6:10 am
access to the actual d.n.c. hardware there will be those who want to get answers to questions way off rachel maddow is list but remember the rules sensitive almost certainly means redacted the democrats have already set it up to to dispute the the report based on the redactions which is really kind of another cheap factor in their part because obviously there will be some adaptions their intelligence sources and methods that are involved in the report but the protection of people who participated in the investigation who are not under any kind of suspicion democrats will use that to say there's still something there they're not going to be satisfied because they're not really interested in the truth they're interested in making political points from it so even if there is proving that there is no collusion and no obstruction that central thesis remains that somehow trump owes his presidency to the russians
6:11 am
and that's a fundamental clause that hasn't been challenged and i don't think in the report pointed out to the president if you don't address it head on you're not going to be exonerated. the group of anti fracking protesters in the strain have come up with a novel way to get the message across. i'm a law. i. got money to listen wrecking a country i'm putting i want to. use a weapon we bring this is how do you mean it. was a huge story affects a lot of people around the world lot of concern but focusing on straighter at the
6:12 am
moment critics say fracking is going to be huge impact on the environment including possible earthquakes because that high pressure for inject into the bedrock but no beneath to get the oil and the gas out from that rock it also increases goes a saying the risk of oil spills and pollution something that can cause various health problems so with that in mind it would seem a study is northern territory announced a moratorium on fracking back in september twenty sixth thing then it was you turned the ban was lifted last year with the government investing over eight million dollars to accelerate development of the industry saying it would create thousands of jobs and help the country's economy but environmentalist graeme sawyer doesn't agree he's got significant doubts about those claims there's a whole range of respect is and that's one of the problems the additional others are really concerned about is that the water that could be directly impacted in the short while this is fracking not only threatens their livelihood and the ability to drink water it also threatens their cultural knowledge and information and their cultural practices but the northern territory government is in pretty bad style in
6:13 am
its economy and so the thinking that might be able to use this is a way to. increase activity but the evidence would suggest other was the jobs question is really an interesting one because research out of coins land shows that for every ten jobs they created it. i lost twenty four jobs or industries in the area so some really big questions ahead to be answered. as well as the environmental concerns. european union's unhappy with facebook's latest efforts to prevent foreign interference in upcoming parliamentary elections in the bloc in a letter to the social media giant in fact brussels has expressed concern that new advertising rules could affect cross border campaigning facebook's policy would prevent european political actors from using facebook facebook messenger and instagram for the e.u. wide paid communication campaigns this policy would put either political actors at
6:14 am
the same level as foreign entities attempting to interfere in the e.u. elections it seems under these new rules facebook applies more rigorous checks on advertisers and also imposes geographical limits and registration in the country where the ads are to be purchased which all goes against the idea the first place of political campaigning facebook that justifies its actions saying its new policy is a safeguard against foreign interference we wait the different risks and concluded that the right solution to help best guard against foreign interference is to only allow people to run advertisement in an e.u. country if they have passed an authorization process could mean there are a result in that same country so well thought through plan or not what the chairman of the u.k. based both group think tank thinks not says facebook has forgotten about its initial purpose and goals. this started because there were allegations that foreign
6:15 am
parties were influencing. elections in other parts of the world now i think almost all of those allegations of been disproved what facebook have done is they've they've looked at the fact that there's been a huge uproar. the amount of data they've been collecting on their own uses and rather than restricting themselves which is what they should have been doing they restricted the uses which seems an entirely wrong headed approach for smaller organizations and for individuals that just want to comment on the political discourse it's going to get harder and harder and harder so big players will be able to comply with the new regulations but smaller players points and i think that's ultimately injurious to the platform injurious to debates and injurious to democracy that's not how it should be in facebook ultimately began as a peer to peer a grassroots network essential and i think if it strays away from that and it just
6:16 am
becomes another big corporation then something else will take its place well certainly after the current one sixty moscow time thank you for watching out into life some of you to do around the world when he was kevin now an airhead in some of the stories ahead for you and get in south africa over claims of racism right at the top of the country's ruling party. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy to confront a shim let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic developments only personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical of time to sit down and talk.
6:17 am
what politicians do. they put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or somehow want to. have to go right to be press was like before three in the morning can't be good that i'm interested always in the waters of our. last question. bests drugs were in her cocaine as were four bucks for the under fifty the everybody use cocaine crack cocaine you can smoke it this is worth fifteen thirty. twenty. score came to this is about a fifteen dollar big people smoke this one bigger circa this week you can find
6:18 am
these drugs in any city in the united states that you want a long as you want to get it about the. make money. and that's what i do every day. again thanks choosing out international fuel news update today france has fired back at the united states of a possible sanctions on e.u. investments in cuba itself to u.s. national security adviser john bolton and its predictive measures on that caribbean island today we are also announcing five additions to the cuba restricted list
6:19 am
which prohibits direction and transactions with entities tied to cuba's military intelligence and security services and personnel we are also announcing that the department of the treasury will implement further regulatory changes to restrict non-family travel to cuba so there are implications foreign companies can now also be sued for operating in cuba after washington lifted the ban on lawsuits but katz to this is well it's a decision that could also have a major impact on the e.u. the e.u. being a van his biggest trading partner all the time when transatlantic relations are already stretched if u.s. step is intended to pressure cuba into giving up support for venezuela's president nicolas maduro is what some people have an ad a say about it. everyone i know it's crazy they want to govern you know parts of the world they can ruin their country i have here in cuba i am cuban if you do a trump in my opinion what he did is criminal because he knows how much effort we
6:20 am
make how hard it is we one led them take anything away. but this is one more effort a completely cross traded trumpet ministration attempting to push cuba as well or nicaragua and any country that is attempting significant change or sovereignty back it is meant as a punishment and the threat to other countries around the world it's meant to as a threat to the e.u. in terms of doing any business with cuba or with one as well or is it going to change anything in cuba now anything in burma as well or not is illegal yes completely of violations of international more on every level. serious south african politicians being branded a racist for urging black voters not to waste their ballots or white counter that the ruling a.n.c.
