from moscow watching r.t. international i'm daniel. thanks for joining us tonight. a lot of your putin believes the u.s. trade war with china and the military escalation with iran have created a highly volatile situation on the eve of the g. 20 summit the russian president gave an interview to the financial times beaking about key threats to global security. what to put it bluntly the situation is definitely become more dramatic and explosive in the sense the world has become more fragmented and less predictable which is the most important and regrettable thing well this interview was particularly extensive and he touched on almost every major topic i mean g. 20 summit coming up putin donald trump said to meet of course the question was about putin's relations with american presidents and he said he's met many during
his years as president as prime minister from bill clinton all the way to donald trump and he said usually he has a good solid working relationship with the united states leaders he also added that donald trump is an odd one out he's not a career paul politician he's a he's a maverick he's someone from the sideline sidelines not a politician at all and he said he doesn't agree with many if not most of donald trump's decisions his problem solving but at least he gets stuff done. he will soon ridiculed again allegations that russia interfered in the u.s. election he said donald trump didn't win because of any collusion which was disproven donald trump won because he felt what the american people wanted to know what is happening in the west what is the reason for the trump phenomenon as you
say in the u.s. what's happening in europe is where the ruling elites have broken away from the people the obvious problem is the gap between the interest of the lees and the overwhelming majority of the people russia has been accused and strange that may seem it is still being accused despite the more reports of mythical interference in the u.s. election what happened in reality mr trump looked into his opponents attitude to him and saw changes in american society and he took advantage of this the other thing he talked about is the square pulse poisoning in the u.k. essentially here that. look we can spend an eternity blaming each other compiling lists of what the other side has done without any sort of proof just just talk he said this group owl poisoning should be investigated solved and resolved by intelligence agencies by. agents and spies and they should look into what happened they should be professionals they should establish what to do about it he said that
politics has no place in the script. in the whole affair. he also added that while traitors should be punished this isn't the way to go about it. if he were to sort of listen all this fuss about spies and counter-spies is not worth serious industry relations the spy story as we say is not worth 5 complex or even 5 pounds for a matter as a matter of fact treason is the greatest crime possible and traitors must be punished this gentleman scruple had already been punished he was arrested sentenced and then served time in prison he received his punishment for that matter he was off the radar why would anyone be interested in him he got punished he was detained arrested sentenced and then spent 5 years in prison then he was released and now was it. thing like me putin talked about is the death and the liberal idea and he said the liberal idea which has been dictated to the world for the past 10
years is liberals progressives dictating what to do how to do about various cultural policies immigration about multiculturalism he said look what's happening in europe look what's happening all over the world the right wing parties are rising because people have spoken out against the liberal idea it is now obsolete he mentioned angle of merkel letting in a 1000000 syrian refugees as. as one of the mistakes that the liberals have made and they've made plenty says. with regards to russia. there is no there is no problem with the. community said let people live as they want but it will never be a replacement for traditional family but to there is also the so-called liberal idea which is outlived its purpose our western partners have admitted that some
elements of the liberal ideas such as multiculturalism no longer tenable various ideas various opinions should have a chance to exist manifest themselves but at the same time the interests of the general public should never be forgotten also spoke about building budding arms race that i would say has already begun a nuclear arms race he. he he blamed the united states he says it was the united states that pulled out of the antiballistic missile treaty it was the united states that pulled out of the. treaty and they're building their arsenals modernizing their arses now the situation now is worse than it was during the cold war because journalists cold war there were rules there were things that neither side would do now apparently there are no rules which makes the situation so much more dangerous said russia for its part is ready to work together with with the west with chinese said we're ready for another treaty arms limitation together with childless
a trilateral but he says that the united states must also show a willingness to get involved. there this is this is you know this is a huge interview a lot of lot of stuff covered obviously we can't go through it all now but the big meeting between vladimir putin and trump is imminent he'll be meeting with terrorism is well which is a pretty big step forward considering how awful russian british relations are so i expect much more interesting interesting stuff to come out tomorrow president putin is of course among the world leaders attending the g. 20 summit in japan which gets underway in a few hours time will be meeting with donald trump on the sidelines of that event reporting from the heart of it is it a trunk or. let me just give you a feeling of downtown austin could just before the main events of the summit the roads are almost deserted and it is very quiet.
well there's something that explains it easily this area is filled with some very important people who say they want to get together to sort busy out what's troubling the world nowadays because i'm very happy to be here for the g. 20 where the challenges are great but let me be honest with you for several previous g 20 gatherings in a row journalists were really hungry for formal round table discussion for how the president and the prime ministers were reading out their vision for global development what mattered most back then and what matters most right now are so called by last when to the leaders sit right next to each other and deal with what piled up between their 2 countries by the way the japanese prime minister shinzo
hobby will be welcoming some of his guests because medieval summarize. so what are these so to say golden by lots of this year the american president and the chinese leader everyone wants to know what's going to happen with the trade wars next especially after what happened to chinese tech giant huawei another highlight well that's easy to guess donald trump together with the russian president vladimir putin by the way i was told that we are approaching a hotel where one of them is staying at the regal raul hotel. yes indeed this is the home of law. and also go. ahead there's a lot that cost to me let's see if we can try and get in
a few hours before the president arrived. well obviously the special type of id was required to get in there. the trump face to face was also meant to be one of the highlights but let me remind you what happened just before mr trump got on his plane i have a very good conversation whether what i said is none of your business obviously everything could change at the very last moment here too but compare that to walk mr trump said before he had to also go. based on the fact that the ships and sailors have not been returned to ukraine from russia i have decided it would be best for all parties concerned to cancel my previously scheduled meeting in argentina with president vladimir putin so the protesters that were viciously
gather in the whole cities for these kind of events might want to change their agenda a little bit the g 20 summit isn't any longer that much about the group of 20 itself or globalization right now it has a different twist to what you experience seeing is in the. psych your. 16 bit war and its means. very great power right now are we. seen and $200.00 organizations or less unless the center of. attention of great powell's. visit g 20. leaders and meetings would be more important ones. when she. said it's it's you know i know we've for the new american look treen america 1st. the un special rapporteur
on top she has once again highlighted his concerns over the case of judean a son is now accusing the media over the alleged inhumane treatment of the wiki leaks founder the guardian washington post and reuters have reportedly declined to publish the u.n. officials they just report mills meltzer told us the response he the reason rather he was given for the refusal some of them said it wasn't high enough under news agenda some of them said bad it was not within their core area of interest but you know there have been reporting all of them on the case of julian assigned when it was about his character and his skill and board and kind of the allegations that he smeared excrements on the walls but when you have a serious piece that actually tries to do mask this this public narrative and to actually show the facts below it then they're not interested the special ruppert's
earlier highlighted a sergeant's prison conditions as one of the major concerns he has he's currently of course serving a 50 week sentence in the u.k. for skipping bail back into into 12 and was the meltzer also brought up other issues last month saying lawyer visits have been limited and too short and access to case files and documents has been lacking here is the official again. i think it's very important to point out i knew that i was going to get into a very politicized environment when i visited during a sound i didn't know him before so i took with me to experienced medical experts a psychiatry and a forensic expert and have worked for decades in examining torture victims just to get a objective scientific medical basis for my assessment and what they found this person who shows all the symptoms that rhetorical for a person has been exposed to prolong psychological torture he has been exposed to public mobbing now that's a slippery slope you know who will be in a debate when it's to side it's done in mobbing basically is something like
mudslinging that's not torture yet but when you start exposing a isolated individual who cannot defend himself to a sustained campaign of shaming of humiliation of ridicule of even death threats and calls for his assassination and he's completely isolated then that can cause severe psychological trauma the foreign secretary jeremy hunt is my counterpart in the u.k. and i asked him for authorization to visit during our stand in order to examine the situation and the risk of torture and so he knew precisely what i was going to do and when obviously they didn't like the result of my observations now all of the sudden this would be meddling in the judicial process it is my mandate to examine whether the digital proceedings are fair whether they are in compliance with human rights and whether or whether we have come to come to the conclusion that rather we
are observing judicial harassment that are designed to put under un due pressure and to actually break him psychologically when he spoke also to swedish programmer and digital privacy activist binny it was released last week from prison in ecuador after being arrested on the very same day issued in assad's in april for allegedly trying to hack government computers but he told us his case was politically motivated and that prosecutors allegedly tried to link him to a song he says though he's never worked for wiki leaks. i feel persecuted because public officials have gone on t.v. lying about my case and then given conflicting testimony i feel persecuted because my legal rights have been broken repeatedly and many many times over this process i can't tell you what the reasons are behind it but i can tell you that it's politically motivated and there are 2 main reasons why i say this the 1st one is that during the 1st 3 hearings the reasons the judges gave for keeping me in prison
were not actually compatible with ecuador law my initial detention was illegal which was confirmed by the habeas corpus tribunal last week i'm finally the precedents and the minister of interior has repeatedly gone on television show. saying several different strengths about my case that they didn't contradict and when they gave witness testimony 2 weeks ago. american farmers of bearing the brunt of chinese tariffs in the ongoing trade disputes that story and more still to come . manufactured. public wealth. when the ruling class is
program the us president claims the chinese economy has been devastated by u.s. tariffs and. me needs a new trade deal. so they want to make a deal they want to make a deal more than i do let me put it back ok they want to make a deal i've only done phase one phase one is 25 percent to 250000000000 i haven't done phase 2 yet now phase 2 doesn't have to be 25 percent it could be 10 percent which people can absolutely hand off. the u.s. has so far imposed tariffs on $250000000000.00 worth of chinese imports over what it claims are trade practices among washington's concerns of beijing's subsidies to chinese industry restrictions on competition. intellectual property theft and china has hit back with import taxes on $110000000000.00 worth of american goods. a blow to the u.s. agricultural sector will put reports one section of the u.s.
economy is certainly on edge and that is the agricultural sector farmers have long been upheld as almost sacred in americana from the writings of thomas jefferson idealizing the yeoman to the iconic speech of paul harvey delivered in 1978 and on the age. now known as planned paradise and said i need a caretaker so god made a farmer god sent i need somebody with me to get up before dawn milk cows work all make in the fields milk cows again each summer then go to town and stay passionate night at a meeting in a school board so god made a farmer now you would think that farmers would be a central focus of trumps promise to make america great again after all it was the agricultural states like iowa wisconsin and minnesota where trump won big however at this point as the trade war with china continues farmers aren't winning they're hurting bad more farmer. trade war i think they are one of the casualties they are the trade disruption yes but trump says the farmers
should just take it after all it's for their own good in the long term we're going to help out our farmers we will ensure that our farmers get the relief they need and very very quickly. it's a good time to be a farmer this claim doesn't match the actual numbers look at soybeans corn and wheat production at this point the midwestern heartland of the united states is already suffering from d.m. dust realisation and now it's seeing its agricultural base plummet income of american farmers has dropped to half of what it was in 2013 and the rate of debt of farmers has reached $427000000000.00 the highest it's been since the farm crisis of the 1980 s. farmers are also defaulting on their loans left and right the highest rate that it has been in 7 years and 3 months a lot of us were forced to take loans to keep our businesses afloat but yet some businesses were so far and the banks wouldn't give them their operating loans for the your the prices for greens and stuff have gone down significantly that we're
unable to pay most of our bills and get the banks paid off to get our loans back in check with the banks that they don't threaten to shut us down their moods a nigger culture a community are very stressful it's theirs angers everything else our planting window this year has been so long from the wet spring that we've had half the farmers don't even have all their crops they need to feed their animals to make the livelihood this year in the grown it's very stressful and very irritating now farmers received a $16000000000.00 subsidy in the hopes of making up for what they cannot sell to china but it was only a drop in the bucket the bread basket at the center of the american economy seems to now be on the chopping block as trump plays his art of the deal game with the 2nd largest economy on earth a lot of voices have to be asking how much longer. r.t. new york. one of bush's biggest waste management is beef has been
