1:01 am
our little girls everywhere love prepare some of these young ladies for reality feel that we don't push them into all cold hard world where they have to fend for themselves and there is no one there to save them on a whiteboard. a very good morning to you it's 9 am here in moscow and you're watching r.t. international with me if you. know it's a moment of anger and frustration for russian sports fans on to the country's flag was banned for 4 years from all world's major tournament the decision was made by the world anti-doping agency or wada athletes on team russia on devastating. why this collective responsibility 115 years old girl as you know brilliant skaters synchronized swimmers only representatives of those sports where new good in you and if in adopting scandalous what is the purpose.
1:02 am
it's an enormous blow to our sports we have to fight for our flag until the end. it's impossible to discard athletes who have nothing to do with any of this. i don't know what we can do while we youngsters to make sure they don't end up with our sport and who's out high achievement. these burn could break our sports. those decisions are biased and inexplicably there are too politicized and prejudiced they're punishing the country and clean athletes how can that be considered fair. i am devastated by the unsporting decisions being made by international organizations this was an unfounded and mean spirited decision. what to say is moscow is being punished for
1:03 am
tampering with a database of drug test results clean athletes will be able to compete on a neutral flag but russian officials and are prohibited from attending major sporting events while the country won't be allowed to host any tournament now the list of events russia has been excluded from is extensive a big clue to the olympic and paralympic olympic games in tokyo in 2020 football's pfieffer world cup in qatar 2 years after that russia was the last host of that event and its players will now have to go as neutrals if they qualify one to is insisting that the onus is on a clean players to prove that their. this is about against russia that protects the right of russian us each but allowing the reentry for major is being. able to demonstrate that they are not implicated in any way by the noncompliance what is important thing today's decision is that we are really sanctioning those
1:04 am
who are responsible for this many politicians and leave those open for those who had nothing to do with with the things going in russia clean. up plates or rushing through. is among those still have to prove their claim she was barred from the rio olympics of the failing a drug test in 2013 of i took the matter to sports highest court and won she was reinstated to went on to win 2 silver medals here's what she thinks about the war decision. to what i was expecting something like this to happen especially after the rio olympics right after i swam i said it was just the beginning like you would have these problems i had and it's getting worse with each year we weren't allowed to computers team russia for the winter olympics 2 years ago and i was getting worse now for 4 years
1:05 am
we have banned for more international tournament the question is what to do next and how to qualify for competitions so the news didn't come as much of a surprise but i didn't expect the decision to be that off. look i got to decide still struggle so how could they punish the whole country all athletes no matter whether they dumped or not they should just punish those who were guilty one of them from her saga or athletes who were involved in something but punishing the whole country all young athletes just because someone did something wrong athletes shouldn't be deprived of the opportunity to represent their own country i believe it shows that politics has come into sport because they do allow clean up. it's to compete under the neutral flag but they don't want to see the russian flag there or anyone representing our country. to me now. i have already hired a lawyer however i found in that my sound in ordinary life break a rule once it doesn't matter if it's a drive in the fans one side will not be punished twice for that i hope it will
1:06 am
worth now but i can't be sure about that but it could be worse than it was before rio i was reinstated for the olympics almost on the very day the games began and i was sick for half a year now and not react the same way even if i'm not allowed to compete i'm almost a grandma for the world of sports then that's my fate and what can i do i just want to advise other athletes not to worry and to hire lawyers don't expect anyone to help you help yourself a. lot of the person has expressed his support for russian athletes saying that the ban shouldn't be collective he says the country has all ground to appeal water has given the russian anti doping agency $21.00 days to decide if they want to pursue that course if europe's to do so the case will be taken to the court of arbitration for sport and actually our ships breaks down the water ruling for us. imagine a person that robs a bank steals let's say a $1000000.00 gets caught gets prison time gets out like
1:07 am
a near your early for good behavior but then the police tells him you know we're not sure you actually stole 1000000 maybe your stole more so we're going to push imprison back again or that is basically the logic which the world anti-doping agency applied to the whole nation of russia in their decision on monday to ban the country from major sports competitions in the world saying that russian athletes can compete individually but they have to again prove that they have not used any kind of doping by. the position of the russian olympic committee stays the same the sanctions are inadequate not logical and to severe we would do our best for the russian olympic team to participate in the upcoming games he's kind of under the colors of the russian trick a lot due to the terms of the olympic charter. whether someone committed a crime fair enough he or she should be punished for that but it is quite unclear how exactly stripping a nation of its flag in
1:08 am
a major sports competitions across the planet can actually solve 'd the problem of fighting against doping you're not innocent proven guilty and i'm in and you don't need to you're guilty until you can prove you're innocent a complete reversal of justice system but it's always been that way you've got to think about what's on the world anti-doping agency has jurisdiction it doesn't at yours dictionary to the russian authorities become sanction russian politicians russian. you know the concepts and politicians can it all it can do essentially resell it and take actions relative to schools so it's come up with this international standard to code compliance or signatories which is used to sanction russia this time around and it's come up with these sanctions as a way of putting pressure on the earth or it's used to come clean which they still haven't done. on top of everything it seems that waters decision from
1:09 am
monday was made in such a haste that they have no clue how to actually navigate in that decision the biggest example of that is probably the situation with you wait for and feel for tournament where were you where you quite expect to. be sanctions will not affect in any way russian part of the upcoming your. first of all it's a continental tournament not of world qualification for or for could part when you 2. is again within the competence of us and if you represent us and if represents a continental part but should it make it to the 2022 world cup in qatar it may be stripped of its flag of its anthem and it may be participating as a neutral country i think it's certainly fair so far as the russian athletes are concerned because it means that they were that they won't be able to compete under their national flag or their national symbols they won't in effect be able to
1:10 am
represent their country the russian state is being treated as. the sponsor and the culprit in all this which makes it different from almost any other countries where it's individual athletes who are sanction penalized or and if you're not yet confused enough they already said directly that should russia a deal to cast the court of arbitration of sports and this process takes longer than the official preparation for next summer's olympics russia will go to next summer's olympics in tokyo as a full fledged nation but then if the band is implemented late it might miss out on the 2024 summer olympic games in paris so this is all surrounded by a lot of confusion and at the same time russia says that it's not planning to give up the. sports minister of the country by vocal up golf insists that all the information for reinstatement has been provided to the world anti-doping agency
1:11 am
says experts have provided convincing only says unfortunately they haven't responded has time to appeal initially when we handed over the database we said let's investigate the database together so that we can make a full decision we wanted to have a kind of mechanism if we don't want to objective decision let's do it like this has all the necessary opportunity they could have taken a different approach from whichever side you look at it monday's decision by water looks like a vocal and very harsh indictment of the russian sports it might send shock waves and reverberations in the country sport for many years to come but it might actually be the beginning of a new struggle of a new battle the legal one when russia takes its case to the court of arbitration for sports in switzerland and we are expecting this to be made quite quickly before the end of this yeah this is a punitive action against a lot including begin to shift one's. moral justification garage if it's
1:12 am
not particularly when there's no evidence of this against them this may be raising a human rights issue whether. they're going to raise this before the court and. i'm not entirely certain we have to accept that there is a. thing they're actually applying the. crusade. there once was for them to find out for. are they rushed the election rather than expecting great anticipation to see what the i.o.c. to respond. point in that's what it's doing it's like saying i'm going to come into your state because somebody from you know who comes and goes up. the soffits faced in ukraine assuring signs of progress with both moscow and kiev finding common ground on a number of issues but he does a russian. ukraine france and germany held 6 hours of talks in paris aimed at resolving the long running conflicts president vladimir putin and his ukrainian
1:13 am
counterpart flooding is alinsky both describe the meeting as positive. is there a thaw in our relations i think yes of course you know we have discussed a broad range of issues and made progress on many of them to me it's all of that gives grounds to believe that the process is moving in the right directions with this you have to do. it with regards to our peace with matt and i think it's a great step towards peace meaning was long and difficult for us but the mood of the. string of the station in a written statement both leaders agreed to implement a complete ceasefire by the end of this year and a complete all for all prisoner swap as well they also committed to withdrawing troops from certain conflict zones before april next year and to ensuring that these are the mind trying to report. so has there been a breakthrough in paris or not well the new president of ukraine and president
1:14 am
vladimir putin of russia shook hands for the 1st time they spoke one on one to each other for the 1st time and spent an entire day and the residence of french president emmanuel back crawdad with 2 of europe's key peace brokers the leader of france and the leader of germany and we do have to remember that this is something that hadn't happened for 3 years while in some cases after such tough difficult talks the sides can't even agree on a joint statement after a day of negotiations well this time they did provide a list of common conclusions and one section from that document is very important because it paves the way for potentially a complete cease fire along the front line and east ukraine and also an overwhelming prisoner exchange between the 2 sides which is supposed to happen
1:15 am
before new year's eve during the press conference vlad armor selenski was absolutely frank that he was delighted that this was made possible as now you know come to want to choose to be honest i don't know how to control the situation a little too many times nearly 6 years decides to try to reach a cease fire system and 20 times the cease fire has been violent as you've said here in paris we have treated the issues in every seriously now that it's being dealt with at a high level and i think it's going to be sold by the end of the year and can tell you that russia has so to say prioritized the following elements of the minsk agreements that is the need for key of to grant special political status to the breakaway republics of low gods and donetsk and that has to be somehow reflected in the constitution and also. the demand that needs to hold free and democratic
1:16 am
elections and this republic this is something that kiev it seems hasn't been keen to do seem at all however for the government in kiev the element that is absolutely essential is the one that is supposed to lead to the full handover of the control of the border between russia and the breakaway republics of lugansk and that he had schemed lot of our pows and did remind everyone that when it comes to the minsk accord they control over the border does after the political section by. the music's of lynching read the minsk accords they say ukraine will begin to establish control over the russians on bus border the day after elections are held in the region and that is what the documents that you said why undermine the grievance and rewrite their content cd if we alter one article then the others are likely to be altered as well and will ultimately. i do have to say that there have been concerns
1:17 am
that the government of the legs won't be able to fulfill their part of the agreement at all in the near future because of the pressure that's been mounting on him domestic only the anti russian pro-war lobby is still very strong and that any baby steps that selenski could potentially make towards russia could lead to some serious political damage for him at a whole common conclusions being made by the normandy quartet that say that the russian and ukrainian sides will remain interested in trying to find ways to somehow reach a compromise when it comes to these most difficult elements of the minsk agreement that i mentioned and also most importantly there will be another summit of the normandy quartet you move in 4 months so the contacts on the most high profile level. between berlin paris kiev and moscow will continue.
1:18 am
coming up russia's top diplomat is just touched down in washington d.c. where he is expected to hold talks with president trump after the break we'll look at what topics are likely to dominate me to.
1:19 am
join me every thursday on the alex i'm unsure when i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm sure. i'll see you then. welcome back a writer in germany has penned a feminist version of the classic tale snow white and the adaptation a surprise twist.
1:20 am
fairy tales give you the chance to teach kids about important values and i think diversity is simply not addressed nearly enough it is such an important concept and i really want my children to grow valuing. it's not the 1st time a classic tells been given a modern make over and a new version all the latin released this year princess johnson has. to be telephoned to and and the original she just wants to find to soulmates. in the remake of the 989 classic a black actress plays the lead role in the tools of backlash some criticized attempts to alter traditional characters but others were enthusiastic saying it was
1:21 am
a win for diversity we discuss the trend with current t.v. and radio host and resurface and the women's rights because. this is political correctness god mad i am sad for little girls everywhere that it's no longer ok to be a housewife and a princess you know on the one hand we want to tell little girls that you can be anything you want to be and less it means being in a traditional relationship maybe being a housewife wanting to be a princess that it's not ok you know i'm all for equal rights and i'm all for feminism but this is just wrong there's no reason that we should take away fantasy and fairy tales and this story does just that this german father has rewrote this thing in a way where it just slaps reality in the face of children absolutely not i think we've done young ladies a disservice for many many years by promising them this fairy tale and pushing it into their head as little girls so that when they grow up they're expecting to meet
1:22 am
this guy who's ready to take them on as their wife and marry them and pay the bills and and be the head of the household and for a lot of women those the statistics say that that's actually no longer reality the reality for so many women unfortunately is that we won't get to have that fanciful stay at home fairytale story it sounds good and many of us would love to have it but let's prepare some of these young ladies for reality so that we don't push them into a cold hard world where they have to fend for themselves and there is no one there to save them on a white horse i'm sure greece you would agree you know if you could find a guy on a white horse to just take you away and sweep you off your feet that would be a good fantasy doesn't mean it's going to happen but it's nice to. read the story and why take that away from little girls rather than getting into this fanciful tale let's just add the elements that allow us to bring it to the future and allow
1:23 am
our girls a chance to you know probably create a future for themselves that looks more like what they would like it to or what they're capable of having versus some far off this new fairy tale that may never happen you know just forcing down their throat that the only way that you can have validity is to have a career and being a housewife is no longer ok i don't know that that's necessarily the right thing here and it's found good to allow children to live in this fantasy world but we've got to give them some truth so that they can begin to grow into skill sets in people who can actually function in the real world taking the 7 dwarfs and making them women and then having snow white travel around the world you know with the prince and they're not romantically involved i mean this is just changing the entire story i do believe we need to empower women but i don't think we need to emasculate men in the process and i think we should lock the door of speed worse than they should be males. russia's foreign minister has just arrived in washington
1:24 am

1:26 am
nuclear weapons a country can field and it's expiring in about a year which is why russia wants a new treaty in place but russia is ready to prolong the new start treaty as soon as possible before the end of the year comes without any preconditions so far no response from washington but rumor has it trump wants a deal that would bring in china to russia wants to make it to your remarks on arms the. world so certainly really. you know. we may later. now all talk for now this is what this meeting is about talking enough to finally resolve this. control is just one part of the problem now is waging a p.r. war against russia spies scandals hacking accusations sanctions and threats of
1:27 am
more rudy giuliani's communications with president trump could be monitored by the russians russia may have been listening and russians are working to sow doubt russia's information warfare the escalation would be sensible little reason and relations gone mad. this is arguably the field where america and russia can do the most really actually make the world just a little bit better corporator and venezuela work together in libya north korea that even sort out the mess that is u.s. policy on iran you see iran is undergoing some very serious problems largely. illegally the americans withdrew from iran you can see you will explain. to you in the studio this was a short list of common issues from the very deadly to the highly inconvenient there are many more which is why even if they achieve nothing this meeting is
