minority. i don't think they should be. demonizing the successful. 6 pm saturday here in moscow my name's colleen bray with your international world is going to start with developments in france to tell you about antiterrorism prosecutors there have learned in the past hour or so said that the knife wielding man who murdered 4 people at a paris police station on thursday that he had to quote a radical vision of the attacker was shot dead during the assault and was also said to have been a recent convert to the face. of worked for the forces a computer expert of some 15 years or so when investigators say that he was also in
contact with salafi groups the ultra conservative islamic ideology will get across that for you and bring you more on the repercussions of that in the next. on to headline news now ben and i could all has been shaken by another wave of violent protests after a state of emergency was declared on thursday demonstrations began over the government's decision to end fuel subsidies which is expected to cause the prices of petrol and diesel to more than double. i. couldn't some transport workers have been leading a national strike and the president is using emergency powers to deploy troops in an attempt to maintain order but there have been scenes of chaos as police clashed with protesters and the have been at least $350.00 arrests the fuel subsidies have been costing the government more than a $1000000000.00 a year and it says there is no chance they'll be reinstated it's all part of the president's plan to cut public spending to meet the terms of an i.m.f.
loan agreed in march it was done of takes a deeper look at the impact it's having. the i.m.f. is the generous and open handed and giving and see whenever a country's economy is in grave need my immediate priority for the i.m.f. is to help members minimize the risk of crises we focus on job creation we focus on productivity we focus on stability stability actually will be my my my key focus is to build your own key qualities so people fly through the roof except far too often when the state places its trust in the i.m.f. it ends up in scenes like these. scrooges
i don't know. how she doesn't it. the last pictures we showed you are from ecuador a country that proves that the i.m.f. does business the same way on both sides of the atlantic at the expense of the people the ecuadorian administration reached a 4 point $2000000000.00 deal with the fund in exchange for a form's abiding by its trusted playbook the i.m.f. marketed it in a non surprise fashion achieving their own last fiscal position is at the core of the authorities problem which will be supported by a 3 year extended arrangement from the i.m.f. well i've already kind of spoiled to you how this has turned out so far in turmoil in the streets and the state of emergency the authorities have voluntarily
renounced their right to choose they must follow through with the tax reform stripped the citizens of some labor protections and cause fuel prices to double measures wildly unpopular among the people well but these are the commandments of the sect of us and like with any cold it's easy to get in not to get out in 2002 the president of malawi a nation in africa said that the i.m.f. had forced them to sell big countries strategic grain reserves they did and as a result millions of people were exposed to famine when the drought hit something the i.m.f. outright refused to accept any responsibility for the causes of food shortages in malawi are complex including lapses in the government early warning systems distortions in domestic markets and mismanagement of food reserves in more recent cases the i am of bailout programs for italy greece ireland and portugal ignited
europe wide and to your story to movement just when people realize that in riyadh. let's see the money comes not from the i.m.f. but from their wallets in ecuador just over 20 percent of the population support the reforms that came until with the funds billions because the i.m.f. is a robin hood who got it all wrong and now gives to the rich and takes from the poor they then the i.m.f. is given a credit to our country is under certain conditions but on the. day they control the economy they're going to go on which is about the goal of the i.m.f. what they are really following this trade to open the economy of whether just to make the. ecuadorian people in the future but not get access to a different kind of private services that they big they don't got but the thing is what is the cause of this going off the rest of ration of the economy anything they're doing that we know they're going to increase inflation we know they've been
increasing unemployment rate at the moment but in theory yes in theory back with all of the future going to be an economy similar like the u.s. economy or mexican economy let's say but obviously with that with. the cost of history and there's going to be. billionaires should not exist now for the people you might be surprised here nodding in agreement with that statement is mega rich facebook founder mark zuckerberg who says he agrees with u.s. presidential hopeful bernie sanders that wealth inequality is out of control but despite that surprising admission from the world's 5th richest person not all of the super rich are on board willing to give up their luxuries some are even suggesting they're part of an oppressed minority more on that from caleb moore. billionaires pretty much rule the united states the president himself is a billionaire but apparently he is the most threatened and bullied man in the country he has turned american diplomacy into a cheap extortion racket let's be honest donald trump is
a loser count all his failed 'd businesses cares about exactly one person and that one person is named donald trump i'm sorry. that you're a terrible president. well perhaps but the bullying of donald trump has very little to do with him being a billionaire billionaires almost live in a parallel universe with elite parties private jets and little islands that they own but apparently some billionaires feel like they are a persecuted minority it's the ordinary people that are persecuting them led by a boogie man named bernie sanders. billionaires billionaire billionaire billionaire billionaire killian as billionaire i am not a billionaire due to all that class hatred incited by bernie sanders the rich are forced to hide in fancy restaurants and the studio of the fox news channel so longer say for them to roam the streets with commoners let's go back to bernie sanders for a minute when you're having sanders what you what the hell has he done it's
aspirational i didn't start with anything. penalize everyone that's done well now steve schwarzman the founder of blackstone says that the treatment of billionaires in the united states is starting to resemble the treatment of the jews in nazi germany seriously he actually said this it's the wall it's like when hitler invaded poland in 1939 and he's not the only one it's a rising trend if you get about 33 we've different words this is what hitler was saying in germany you don't survive as a society if you encourage and thrive on and view it genesee the wealthy t.v. preacher kenneth copeland has also reported suffering at the hands of the not so wealthy or abused fire lines you can't manage that today right this don't feel old world right get in an air get in alone too with a bunch of and so the gap between the rich and poor in america has reached its peak
in half a century so do you think that billionaires are really an oppressed minority we decided to ask new yorkers what they think that's a joke right oppressed. or not. malcolm we approached minority women in the world anyway i don't think they should be hated they didn't get that way well most people did a really successful got that way because they work if they have enough money so they can protect themselves don't believe in demonizing the successful i mean their majority of them has created a product or service ness or result of. the good work that they've done this is their success i don't demonize him for being successful now this notion that the rich are somehow mistreated by society is certainly not new the cold war novelist and philosopher i know rand wrote an entire book called atlas shrugged it was about how the rich of the world go on strike against the ungrateful rabble who levy taxes against them but average americans just don't buy the argument seems that when the ultra rich claim the world has been unfair to them they don't really know what fair
means kaleb up and archie new york. the impeachment inquiry into donald trump over his phone call with the leader of ukraine has seen white house officials subpoenaed over the u.s. president's contacts with key have the democrats spearheading the probe say trump has left them with no other choice as for u.s. military aid which plays an important role in the whole scandal on monday the u.s. state department approved the sale of nearly $40000000.00 worth of antitank weapons to kiev 150 joplin misspells come on top of the $200.00 sold to the country last year a senior correspondent but i'd takes a look at how ukraine has turned into something of a goldmine for the united states. at 1st sight you wouldn't take ukraine for a land of opportunity unless you're into peddling weapons the javelin system will help ukraine build its long term defense capacity to defend its sober instance oratorial integrity in order to meet its national defense requirements now
ain't that just the american dream selling weapons to a nation that can barely afford to keep itself warm in the winter and not just a. weapons the javelin by far the most expensive and it's class more than $200000.00 for the launcher and a rocket was uneasy though it took a concentrated push by arms manufacturers lobbyists and politicians to overturn a ban on lethal weapon sales to ukraine and this man this man was at the center of it the significance of this is that we lifted the bombing your arms did provide anti-tank weapons. and now we're prepared to treat ukraine like a normal country which it is just look at his face doesn't it radiate honesty and empathy but appearances can be deceptive kurt was nor could
had a little side gig going on that was all hush hush the side from representing trump and ukraine he also worked for the b.g. are a huge and powerful lobbying group which surprise lobbies for a theater the company that manufactures javelin missiles and will make millions by selling them to ukraine cut unfortunately resigned in september and aside from the hold potentially corrupt thing with b.g. are a great hint he was also embroiled in the trump ukraine scandal speaking of which trump has recently put on hold almost $400000000.00 in military aid to ukraine it lays out. a scheme to use the leverage of the presidency you to use the leverage of the. vital military assistance to
a foreign nation. to provide or tame dirt on a political opponent it's hard to imagine a more serious set of allegations than those contained in the complaint surely they can't all. will be rotten this is adam adam has a much friendlier face than kurt adams seems genuinely concerned about ukraine alas adam doesn't seem to be any better see among adams sponsors is a fellow named igor pasternak who makes a lot of money on military contracts with ukraine is the pasternak recently hosted a fundraiser for adam after which the congressman began all but the mounding that the u.s. send money and arms to ukraine which would allow his generous sponsor to re arm the entire ukrainian military just last year the m 16 project was conceived some time ago as ukrainian armed forces border guards and national guard we time
switch to nato standards on a city you could probably film sin city 3 with characters base than these guys but even if you don't sell guns and don't get kickbacks or donations from mama's manufacturers you can still use ukraine here for example as ukraine's national and t. corruption bureau chief sit nick recorded bragging about how he helped hillary clinton during the 2016 election. yes i helped not trump but hillary i helped her who really belongs to the cohorts of politicians who comprise the huge money in the us both in the u.s. and in the entire world for us that is sort of better oh you could definitely film sensitive 3 with these guys but the audio is real confirmed by ukraine's attorney general it was mr sit nick by the way who published dirt on trump's campaign
manager in 2016 in a real lost anyway but the fellow tried so what if you don't have guns to sell or elections to win whatever for. example daddy wants to get his young boy a nice cushy job where he didn't have to do much well ukraine's the help booth john biden's son and john kerry's stepson landed executive jobs that are ukrainian energy companies now strap yourself in hunter biden earned $50000.00 a month 50000 in a country where the average wage is a few $100.00 and you know what in the weird and wacky world of us politicians and i think it gave you a taste of just how wacky it is that's normal the underlying problem here was of course hunger by receiving $50000.00 a month from ukraine energy company do you think that that is evidence of corrupt
behavior no people are set on. monetary payments it was always a playground for america ukraine in 2013 victoria nuland boasted about the billions america spent supporting democracy in ukraine or meddling in its politics you pick since ukraine's independence in 1901 the united states has supported ukrainians as they do democratic skills and institutions as they promote civic participation and good governance of which are preconditions for ukraine to achieve its here p n aspirations we've invested over 5000000000 dollars to assist ukraine in knees and articles that will ensure a secure and prosperous and democratic train well thank you mr newland didn't ukraine turn out great but then again look at it like an american senator you don't care that ukrainians are poor cold stressed and hopeless what you
care about is that your sponsors can make money and keep the meeting to you what you care about is ukrainians help. in you in elections what you care about is ukraine providing your kids with comfy little jobs that pay millions over the years and if you are an american senator well ukraine couldn't have turned out any better. this is international still ahead this saturday it seems to swallow a lot of people might be happy to use face id technology to unlock that phones in france they're less keen on the government planning to use it to put them on a database among all stories of the lad.
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race is on off and spearing dramatic developments only really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. the world is driven by shaped by. the dares thinks. we dare to ask.
welcome back the u.k. government has formally acknowledged the killing of maori people in the 18th century when a british explorer arrived in new zealand but the official statement stop short of the full apology that someone hoping for. knowledge the deaths of 9 of your ancestors and see you as the descendants of this. i offer my every sympathy. for i understand pain does not diminish with time. the 1st encounter between captain james cook's men and indigenous people in 769 led to the deaths of at least 9 maoris britons nearly expressed regrets came just a few days before a government funded commemoration of that landing that is just the latest in a series of similar actions they've taken over their colonial past. in 2030 in the
u.k. agreed compensation for more than 5000 torture victims of a 950 s. uprising in kenya and earlier this year former prime minister to resign may described in the 1919 amritsar massacre as a shameful scar on britain's history with india when troops fired on unarmed crowds containing some nationalist protesters and killed more than a 1000 people according to some indian estimates but again her words were not seen as a full apology. we spoke to a maori right advocate who says that the wording of these expressions is absolutely critical. it's not an apology and it's an expression of regret and so there is a very particular wounds that have been used and the british high commissioner has reclear she was not speaking on behalf of the british crown to the actual ones that seat james cook a lot i think great britain would be the exception to seeing the
vanguard of imperial expansion as as being heroes i mean this is the same for many european empires they who are sized their activities and they got to write the history books and my price themselves as this but to say and an expression of regret which is literally a non apology that it's impossible to know what really happened when there are numerous accounts they have slight variations but they all agree that these people were unarmed and were killed for the sake of demonstrating supremacy we know that it happened. france is set to become the 1st european country to roll out a nationwide i.d. program using facial recognition technology president across been pushing the initiative despite a barrage of criticism from privacy campaign it a shot to do better he reports next from paris. your face is your passport it's a saying that's becoming more and more reality in the modern world we may already
be used to the idea of facial recognition to access all smartphones or even certain apps but how about the idea that governments are now moving in the direction of using your face as a means to access digital information as citizens so that could be services such as taxes and social security without there being any alternative that's exactly what's about to happen in france it seems it's set to become europe's 1st country to use facial recognition to. the proposed service is extremely practical everybody will have an opportunity to see for themselves there's a facial recognition system for your mobile phone is infinitely more practical than a card the fact is that your personal data can be stolen from your card and to morrow you can change your card but your face won't change in a day or so this development will radically influence the security of information
it's caused theory amongst critics who say the id program dubbed him his premature and they've also raise concerns about its privacy the processing of personal data which reveals racial or ethnic origin political opinions religious or philosophical beliefs is prohibited while the development of this technology creates and president opportunities socially beneficial uses it also poses a serious threat to human rights and civil liberties most notably the freedom of expression the freedom of assembly and association the right to privacy and the right to a fair trial. i listened an acronym for sue to find online authentication on mobile will be rolled out in november according to the french government it will enable any individual to prove his or her identity while the internet in a secure manner but how do people here in paris feel about it you can just force
people like. even giving a choice is the key to do one thing and then if it's really rough it's true that it could be dangerous i don't know much about it i think security is more important but it doesn't bother me but i don't have an choice i think people can already do that with social media there's also been concern that this could be this slippery slope to facial recognition biometrics being used by c.c.t.v. i mean every move that you make could be entered into a database and that's already happening in countries like china the french government though insists this will not be the case here and it says any footage to use facial recognition will be raised within seconds but those assurances may not be enough to persuade people given that state security standards in france have already been breached earlier this year it took a hacker a little over an hour to break into
a secure government messaging app so many are perhaps concerned that all technology is pregnant will and that their information could fall into the wrong hands big brother is watching you and soon you may have no choice but to let it show if you can ski r.t. paris. the u.s. secretary of state has hailed his country's relationship with greece and saying thais have never been stronger. on a 2 day trip to africa where he's been holding talks with top government officials including on defense cooperation but his arrival on saturday wasn't received well by many in the capital. i i. thousands protested in front of the greek parliament scolding for washington's top diplomat to go home american flag was also burned in front of the u.s. embassy where there was also a demonstration in the northern city of thessaloniki with hundreds marching on the

is always spontaneous or is it. is. spilling needle the former ukrainian president recalls the events of 2014. those who took. it invested over $5000000000.00 to assist ukraine in these and other goals that will ensure a secure and prosperous and democratic. politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line to get except. the reject. so when you want to be president or injury. or some want to breast. cancer why beatrice this is what before 3 in the morning can't be good that i'm interested always in the waters of my. question.
