by good afternoon this is out international life make her here in moscow 1st of all members of the venezuelan opposition of been implicated in a corruption scandal leaked documents appear to reveal that officials from one goh i doze movement have been embezzling aid funds for personal use the money was intended for soldiers who defected and fled to neighboring colombia last february. humanitarian aid it is more a humanitarian robbery all the money from the famous humanitarian aid funding stolen of take note washington not only are the opposition the liars but they are thieves to thousands of dollars from each other. thousands 5 of dollars raised from an aid concert on the colombian border were apparently spent on hotels prostitutes and luxury goods but 2 members of party they were in charge of overseeing the humanitarian aid side of things with more senior correspondent were ghastly of sex
drugs and rock'n'roll aren't something you'd associate with a humanitarian aid concert wrongly that seems colombian authorities themselves a shocked and barris that what they've uncovered and to think it all began so innocently we need to try to help those who are not getting medical help help those who are hungry and today hopefully on the back of this concert we can start maybe getting supplies into that to sway those people who are not suffering so much back then the freshly self-proclaimed president of venezuela called in the military to defect join him and top of the corrupt regime. to the armed forces welcome to the right side of history welcome to the soldiers who are today following the constitution welcome hundreds of soldiers did defect some with
families some of the small children they skeptical on beer they were put in hotels and by mid march it we're living in the streets we are desperate we do not want to stay in colombia we want to return to venezuela but not in the current living conditions we do not know. how could this happen out of the 7 hotels that the soldiers were staying in all but 2 were being paid for by the un and the colombian government to hotels is all why do those representatives had to pay for except they didn't according to the journalists who broke this story why and why do all of this a month ago. when we couldn't allow for any bad managing of money to overshadow what has been a big effort on the part of all venezuelans that's why as soon as we had the information about the ongoing investigation we decided to send it straight to every
impartial or thorazine. the people who did this bear in mind were appointed by do personally and he only chose to speak with the story already public knowledge saying transparent investigation is needed also amazingly managing to somehow imply that the venezuelan government does involve culpable complicit and that guy duo doesn't cover up corruption which he kept covered up for at least a month obviously the actual venezuelan government has questions. it's a huge drop in corruption poor to divert money that we could use fall sick children instead of being spent on food or medicine that's been used to pay for alcohol prostitutes expensive shopping trips and luxury hotels as do those allies why is his party which promises to cleanse venezuela of corruption and exercise the
demons of the old regime why are these people blowing tens of thousands of dollars in aid money on prostitutes drugs and booze and live a concert that richard branson has led along with others in the us pro a chant of february 22nd 23rd was a complete failure of plan why those forces inside of venezuela and colombia have been using the money to enrich themselves for luxury stays in $5.00 star hotels and therefore they're really showing what they're about it's about whining power for personal enrichment the corruption scandal is just one small part of what the us is engaging in in this enormous assault and genocidal assault against the people of venice well it's hundreds of millions it's chance of billions of dollars that the u.s. is stealing in the name of one way though stealing money from the venezuelan people
truck in this the shortlist to be britain's next prime minister will get just a little bit shorter later this wednesday 5 are said to come for in the race to replace trees in may is conservative leader and by thursday's final ballot then m.p.'s will have decide on just 2 names and after that they go to the grassroots members to decide. the u.k. looks at who's still in the race as it stands at the moment. but contest is hotting up and the field has been whittled down one bill on the bombshell remains the front runner and these are the politicians who's made it through to the next round of the conservative party's game of knockout or should it be called the contest for who gets to lose to boris johnson in the race for downing street it was very scary no you're really thinking to get off the plane taishan sounds like how there was that we had an elite and the quest for a new leader has got the country poring over the contestants of dirty laundry.
gordon brown as prime minister would be obsolete rageous not just because you don't popping interfere in high tax in complicated of life but mainly because he's a scot and government by a scot is just not conceivable in the current constitutional context. i mean my wife is japanese most telling the story. you're talking here with a preview the period. steve you say that the man that you are backing jeremy i'm so sorry jeremy hunt of never said that before in my life it's usually men who say that so i really really want to apologize i'm sorry can you guess which politician took which drug in their preponderate ix days michael gove's was a front runner but his campaign was marred after he was forced to admit he dabbled
with cocaine in the $19000000.00 ts it was a crime it was a mistake i deeply regret it should you have gone to prison. while i was i was fortunate in that i didn't and then there's. what he started as the rank outsider his warts and all media strategy hash tag laurie walks has been gathering momentum up until now the secretary of state for international development wasn't that well known outside of westminster or isn't guys. are you happy to have a quick film. was for filming for the i'm a politician standing to be prime minister standing room meeting people oh i want to see what people are up with all this dirt on offer you'd expect those competing for a chance to move in here in a couple of weeks time to engage in some good old fashioned political mudslinging
but at this stage of the contest boris johnson is so far ahead that the other conservative candidates appeared to have come down with a case of politeness perhaps looking into the future and vying for top positions in an all but inevitable boris johnson cabinet. months after sudan's president was ousted by the armed forces the country is now trying to find ways to resolve the resulting constitutional crisis that president bush is removal of the decades imposed no lead to a struggle between the military government and grew. pushing for a return to civilian rule as well as internal efforts to try to resolve the impasse there's also help lining up from abroad in fact the u.s. is increasing its involvement weeks after major crackdown by the sudanese military and protesters urging security forces to end attacks on civilians and to investigate the recent violence or sentence appointed in fact a new special envoy for sudan a veteran diplomat who on paper has got
a wealth of local knowledge and experience of the region 65 year old donald booth has not only served previously as the u.s. ambassador to liberia zambia and ethiopia he was also the obama administration's envoy to sudan and south sudan and i was back in the role but booths appointments not being universally welcome for a start the u.s. space darfur women action group. that region suffered years of conflict including genocide and ethnic cleansing not only did booth want to normalize relations with a murderous regime he actively neglected those being murdered booth's failed to put forth any statements regarding the atrocities committed we cannot trust him to speak up now internally displaced individuals who took to birth during his visits were quickly erast it without any prevailed by booth to grant them release all protection he support been will once again silence those who have been suffering in darfur for 17 years so donald who gets down to work caleb maupin next is lunch time
takes a look at his track record during neighboring south brutal civil war. as the situation in south sudan continues to spiral the united states has appointed a new special envoy to save the day the department has appointed ambassador down on the eve booth as special envoy on sudan his appointment demonstrates that the united states has a firm commitment to the sudanese people and efforts to advance a peaceful political solution now the white house says that it's his experience with south sudan that makes him qualified however it is long record with the country that is the source of all the outrage donald booth was the special envoy to both sudan and south sudan under the administration of barack obama from 2013 to 2017 under his watch the civil war and human rights abuses escalated.
the. grapes again grapes sexual mutilation abductions and sexual slavery as well as killings have become commonplace in south sudan there is no doubt that these crimes are persistent because impunity so entrenched that every kind of norm is broken now the role of donald booth in this mess hasn't exactly been good in 2011 the united nations imposed an arms embargo on sudan however the united states didn't start abiding by it until 20163 years after the war was already in full swing despite what seemed like strong international consensus favor going to bargo for several
years the united states withheld support and an embargo was not put on the un security council agenda. seems like a pretty big fan. and of the u.s. and israeli aligned regime of south sudan he actually worked to get them a waiver from the white house over their use of child soldiers and he seems a little bit partisan when it comes to internal strife in the country here's a statement he made about the ousting of the vice president we do not believe it would be wise from a shark to return to his previous position in juba so this is the man whose task it is to restore peace however if you look at his record he seems to have plenty of experience doing the opposite the u.s. never really carried out sincerely so the sudanese didn't really care or could really follow a policy from us because the us was against the very survival of the country the mistake that was made by the united states and it was a mistake made by the sudanese government because you cannot ignore to suffering of
people for during your whole period of. us didn't lift a finger few tried to go the country even though before the break up with south sudan in 2000 let us government did nothing but keep punishing the sudanese people you keep going you're asking for sheer keep following policies that we've seen cheap. when's the last time going to moscow you want to know if international thinks the shooting in coming up the bruising row of abrasive land ownership in south africa nelson mandela's daughter is in the spotlight for some inflammatory tweets. one else truths seem wrong. but all the problems just don't call. me at all yet to seep out these days become educated and it j h n equals betrayal. when something find themselves worlds apart we choose to look
tensions on the rise in south dakota in the us off the state passed a new riot to boosting law was coined by state legislators to cover people that encouraged civil disobedience even if they weren't at the right themselves but activists say it's aimed at pros testers who continue to rally against the keystone pipeline.
these new rules not only take aim at people who actively take politan roths but also people. incite violence or encourage others to take out more about the keystone pipeline x.l. it's the 4th part of a system that runs from canada to america 3 stages of already been completed this 4th phase been postponed for a while by barack obama amid environmental protests over it but now president trump has given the green light for it to go ahead the american civil liberties union says this new act is simply not clear enough in the detail and seeks to suppress demonstrations before they even start native american activist joy braun believes the protests in north dakota are what prompted the government to take action that the whole reason behind it were laws are being worked out in that and iraq are we were fighting their own axis on the united states government as a reader that their read of oh well we were able you know and we're exercising our
treaty rights you know you know they're declaring war on us they're declaring war on the great reach. we will do whatever we and whatever we have if you. protect. the daughter of nelson mandela who's now south africa's ambassador to denmark has caused outrage with controversial tweets about color and land ownership . do you ever tide apologists your time is over you will not rule again we do not fear you finally. statements been condemned by the country's opposition and the white south african group both are calling for the mandela to be dismissed for the economic freedom fighters parties say they fully support mandela running a critics racist she defended her comments to say that she's perfectly entitled to her own pony and behind the argument is the controversial land reform bill in south africa and they explode creation of lands from white farmers the idea of is to try
to restore some justice after apartheid according to the government white farmers are still supposed to play a role in establishing a new economic reality there was put a sarah go on policy fellow at the south africans to devise relations about the controversial tweets now. she is their best sitter to a significant european country which south africa's had very good relations with and that her behavior is tiredly and diplomatic and it raises a very pick concern for us in so their race has been used as a. political tool by various parties to either act as a stand in for not doing enough of the right thing or 2 and taken hours and tried create a split between whites and blacks the redistribution of lead isn't actually it is legislation without compensation going to resolve the problem the problem is largely in administrative work it's got a lot of catching up to do it i think this is why it has taken this particular
starts of relying on the apartheid past instead of saying look it's a it's a 2 to achieve a decent effect for people we actually need to do it properly. a journalist accused of high treason in ukraine has described the charges as absurd during a court hearing clearly shin ski's accused of using the news agency rather as a cover for a hybrid information war against ukraine he's already spent more than a year in custody of britain told r.t. is rightly video agency is case is politically motivated. and you pretty much the way you would your i think my case is a national disgrace it's absolutely politically motivated it is at least silly to judge a journalist for whose job. it's about growth here curvaceous ski runs ukraine bureau of russia's rian obviously news agency he was detained in kiev in may $28000.00 on suspicion of supporting a break we were publics in the east if convicted he could face 15 years in prison
lawyer says the court failed to clarify the charges brought by the ukrainian security forces because he said the court didn't actually understand them either the case has drawn concern from several global humanitarian and journalist organizations along the way ukrainian authorities are seeking the maximum jail sentence for him if they do get a conviction which is key hopes that the new government in ukraine will look at his case from a more rational perspective pieces. the well here's the issue with your will you just there because the motive was indeed political of course i think no one wanted to find the real truth and to punish those who are guilty but i have stressed that no one cared for 4 years that we were a little tree destroying the cradle unity government and just less than one year before the election the authorities decided to tackle the situation and how do they do it they possess clear evidence that there was no intention of
a coup in our texts and i realize that those responsible for my case i've lived longer in power so i hope the new government will be required to meet tells what is taking for a major on ukraine's also shoring up its military muscle with a $250000000.00 aid package from the u.s. the aim is to boost the country's defense abilities and help care of maintain domestic security as it's been battling an insurgency in the east now since 2014. the united states remains committed to helping ukraine to strengthen democratic civilian control of the military promote command and control reforms enhanced transparency and accountability in acquisition and budgeting in advance defense industry reforms the recently amounts military aid is part of a series of pentagon payments to ukraine since 2014 washington's funding is now reached one and a half $1000000000.00 all told sniper rifles and rocket propelled grenade launchers are among the lethal and nonlethal items which ukraine will get from the pentagon
the u.s. says the move reaffirms their long standing defense relationship you know it's been comes after a reported spike in fighting along a front line in the eastern region in recent days the conflict all told so far as thoughts have killed around 13000 people since there are up to 5 years ago security analyst charles schumer told us that this aid now is the potential to aggravate the conflict further again. but what we've got here is again as was previously at least on one occasion previously he's got lethal weaponry being provided as well and of course that was resisted. and his administration him fearing i think that this would exacerbate the situation rather than actually improve it and that these weapons defensive of course almost all defensive weapons can be used offensively but in terms of the politics of this i think it's quite. significant because of course you've got a new recently elected president and of course it was part of the election campaign
that he would like to see a reduction of tensions with russia and ultimately of course an end to the very catastrophic war that has taken place in the east of his country but on the other hand he's also made it clear in recent weeks that he's going to still stand very much with the west and allied to the u.s. and of course in a way those statements are now being rewarded perhaps with the continuation of this program. lets who are things looking for these rooms of international today in the coming hours with any breaking news as it happens and you catch up with all of you not me dot com so for me kevin or you for that thanks for watching and have a great rest of this wednesday really were. why a paradise with so much all year round turned into
a round the experimentation field for agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would that the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments that often in day you have many of these people who have one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental research going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with this because the people have less political power. in a world of big parts of the movie lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to
dig deeper to hit the stories that made stream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. it's hard to take some from somebody if you know have some replacing. they want to do this interview today and i want to use the market and then they take me. there you know 4 years ago area. so i'm going to use down selling drugs if we'll hire someone to put the money in it back. to israel. the way it is life is almost invasively mccullers peaceful for the worse do you guys know what security
