a cold hard world where they have to fend for themselves and there is no one there to save them on a white horse. a very warm welcome to the program from all of us here at r t h q in moscow thanks for joining us this hour. russian athletes have expressed both anger and frustration after the continuing fallout from the doping scandal so the country banned from all major world tournaments for the next 4 years the decision was made by the world anti-doping agency water what about putin has given his backing to russia's athletes. because then you move the punishment must not be collective affecting people who have nothing to do with certain violations there are new complaints against the russian olympic committee if there are no complaints the country should compete and do its national flag as stated in the olympic charter it means that was his decision contradicts the olympic charter and we have
8:02 am
grounds to appeal to cas. what took the action because it believes moscow had tampered with a key drug test database but while clean athletes will still be able to compete they'll be forced to do so under a neutral flag russian officials however are prohibited from attending major events of the country it won't be allowed to host any tournaments or the list of doors now slammed in russia's face is rather extensive and includes the olympic and paralympic games in tokyo in 2020 and football's he thought 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 russian swimmer. is among those who have to prove their queen she failed a drug test in 2013 and was suspended for 16 months before the real olympics she received another suspension for a while dhoni amused but took the matter to sports highest court and won she was reinstated and went on to win 2 silver medals here's what she thinks about what his
8:03 am
decision. with that assad's struggle how could they punish the whole country all athletes no matter whether they deserve it or not they should just punish those who were guilty one of they are from risotto athletes who were involved in something but punishing the whole country all our 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 athletes to compete under the neutral flag but they don't want to see the russian flag there or anyone representing our country. so many hours as it is even though the book i have already hired a lawyer however funny is that to my sound in ordinary life if you break a rule once it doesn't matter if it's a drive in the fans were fired you will not be punished twice for that i hope which will 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
8:04 am
and i was sick for half a year now i'm not reacting the same way even if i'm not allowed to compete i'm almost a grandma for the world of sport 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. what i have given the russian anti-doping agency $21.00 days to decide if it wants to appeal it up to do so the case will be taken to the court of arbitration for sport. breaks down the 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 a mere year early for good behavior but then the police tells him you know we're not sure you actually stole a 1000000 maybe your stole more so we're going to push imprison back again all of that is basically the logic which the world anti-doping agency applied to the whole
8:05 am
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 too severe we would do our best for the russian olympic team to participate in the upcoming games in japan under the colors of the russian trickle or 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 a major sports competitions across the planet can actually solve 'd the problem of fighting against doping you're not. proven guilty in anti doping it's who 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
8:06 am
think about what's on the world anti-doping agency has jurisdiction but it doesn't act yours dictionary to the russian authorities become sanction russian politicians roll it can do essentially reset it and take actions relative to schools so it's come up with this international standard to code compliance where signatories which is used to sanction russia this time round. on top of everything it seems that waters decision from 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
8:07 am
2. is again within the competence of us 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 and if you're not yet confused enough they already said directly that should russia appeal to cas the court for 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 ban is implemented late it might miss out on the 2024 summer elim big 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 bible club golf insists that all the information for the reinstatement has been provided to the world anti-doping agency . experts who provided convincing on says unfortunately they haven't heard us
8:08 am
resign or 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 be objective decision let's do it like this was saddam has all the necessary opportunities he 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. 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 laws on switzerland and we are expecting this to be made quite quickly before the end of this year this decision is created to cause damage to russian sport it is meant to frustrate russian sports fans to alienate the russians from their leadership of the whole. of

federation sports system is dominated by states and state players and state budgets that it's what causes the biased decisions and policies of. a number of leading states against other states so that system would be privatized without state influence. then it would work a lot better russia should develop strategies to win the hearts and minds of peoples around the world with arguments with. a fair. approach. peace efforts for eastern ukraine are showing some signs of progress after the leaders of the normandy 4 group gathered in paris for the 1st time in 3 years talks aimed at
8:10 am
resolving the conflict lasted for 6 hours the unrest in the eastern regions erupted back in 2014 ottomar putin and his ukrainian counterpart both described the meeting as a positive 1st step. just to put deeply is there a thaw in our relations i think yes of course we have discussed a broad range of issues and made progress on many of them all of that gives grounds to believe that the process is moving in the right direction. which shook us said some. with regards to our peace efforts we have met and i think it's a great step towards peace most of the meeting was long and difficult but the mood of the meeting was positive. and 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 for april next year and to ensuring that these areas are deemed mine with all the details here go. so has there been
8:11 am
a breakthrough in paris or not well the new president of ukraine and president 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
8:12 am
overwhelming prisoner exchange between the 2 sides which is supposed to happen before new year's eve during the press conference blatter mare 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 but 20 times in nearly 6 years decides to try to reach a cease fire and 20 times the cease fire has been violated here in paris we have treated the issue very seriously now that it's being dealt with at a high level i think it's going to be sold by the end of the year you can tell you that russia has so to say prioritized the following elements of the midst 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
8:13 am
elections and this republic this is something that kiev it seems hasn't been keen to do at all however for of 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 then he adds a lot of our approaches did remind everyone that when it comes to the minsk accord the control over the border does come after the political section by. the music's of lynching read the minsk accords they say ukraine will begin to establish control over the russia don't bounce border the day after elections are held in the region that is what the documents see why undermine the agreements and rewrite their contents if we alter one article then the others are likely to be altered as well and will ultimately lose everything i do have to say that there have been concerns
8:14 am
that the government of the legs won't be able to fulfill their part of the agreement to 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 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 in 4 months so the contacts on the most high profile
8:15 am
level. between berlin paris kiev and moscow will continue. and for reaction inside in the updates on this story head to our website r.t. dot com we have some in-depth analysis there from former austrian foreign minister . meanwhile still to come on the program russia's top diplomat has touched down in washington d.c. work is expected to hold talks with. details on that story and more after the break . you know world of big partisan law and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting
8:16 am
past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy from day shouldn't let it be an arms race is also a spearing dramatic development the 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. welcome back a writer in germany has penned
8:17 am
a new version of the classic tale snow white and the adaptation has a surprise twist. through tales give you the chance to teach kids about support and values nancy does this city simply not address need not see such an important concept and already want more children to grow valuing.
8:18 am
the 1st time a classic tells been given a modern make over and a new version of a lot released this year princess just mother has high aspirations to become soul to the original she just wanted to find her soul mate. and then a remake of the 1989 classic little mermaid a black actress now plays the lead role calls a backlash some criticize attempts to alter traditional characters but others were enthusiastic saying it was a win for diversity we put the issue up for debate. this is political correctness god had i'm 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
8:19 am
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 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 very soon
8:20 am
a great 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 as the elements that allow us to bring it to the future and allow our girls the 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
8:21 am
prince and they're not romantically involved i mean this issue. changing the entire story i do believe we need to empower women but i don't think we need to emasculate man in the process and i think we should let the door speed worse than they should be males. russia's foreign minister has arrived in washington d.c. for a working visit sergey lavrov is expected to meet secretary of state my pump and possibly president trump that meeting hasn't been officially confirmed yet but would come just a day after the u.s. justice department's watchdog all the f.b.i. has russia probe was justified of arms visit also comes against the backdrop of the impeachment inquiry into trump or what's being called ukraine gate ron garcia looks at the backlog of pressing international issues that moscow and washington hope to make progress on. it's hard to imagine a worse time for russia and the us to meet but if you wait a few years the way things are good and oh it will be even worse pressing issues at
8:22 am
stake things that could no longer be delayed things that affect your safety my safety the entire world. arms control most important for short range ballistic weapons ever since the u.s. and russia pulled out of the i.m.f. treaty locking horns over who had violated the terms things have been escalating understand how awful these things are with your birth of the mill nuclear weapons both sides know where they are they can detect launches potentially intercept them with short range intermediate weapons there's no warning which makes proof sides and europe protected by the i.m.f. . with these weapons it's better to press early rather than late and i want we definitely don't want to see our continent 1000000000 back to being
8:23 am
a battlefield or a place where. other superpowers confront them. biz belongs to a faraway history. now another monumental agreement is in the law in the faso the speak the start treaty which limits how many strategic 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 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 a deal very much on arms the. world so certainly really. you know. we may be related to the all talk for now this is what this meeting is
8:24 am
about talking enough to finally resolve this. control is just one part of the problem now is waging a p.r. war against russia spy scandals hacking accusations sanctions and threats of more rudy giuliani's communications with president trump could be monitored by the russians russia may have been listening and russians are working to so 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 cooperation venezuela work together in libya north korea that even sort out the mess that these u.s. policy on iran. that iran is undergoing some very serious problems largely
8:25 am
u.s. sanctions the absolutely illegally the americans withdrew from the iranian. because you will expect 2 sides to implement it 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 the nothing this meeting is a good idea keeps the avenues of dialogue open because if they aren't nice problems with it keep mounting all those whom use so much of camel's back couldn't take. the us government has dropped assault charges against journalist max blumenthal he was accused of attacking a supporter of venice well self-proclaimed interim president won quite doe back in october police arrested blumenthal at his home on a 5 month old warrant he spent 2 days in prison with he claims no access to a lawyer the case was based on the testimony of an activist she claims that in may
8:26 am
blumenthal and his friend assaulted her during a protest at the venezuelan its embassy a journalist says the allegations are false. the case was dropped because it was a phony case based on a false allegation no one assaulted any venezuelan woman outside the embassy in fact it was the the activists in the journalists outside who were being assaulted by a right wing venezuelan opposition that was colluding with the u.s. secret service in order to starve out group of activists inside the embassy who are defending international law against the trump administration's coup attempt or not seeking retribution i'm seeking justice and protection for other journalists and activists like me because it's really scary that someone could be hauled out of their house by a team of cops listed falsely as armed and dangerous and then jailed for 2 days and possibly put on trial because someone who doesn't like their political views decides to level of false allegation against them this could happen to anyone.
8:27 am
blumenthal's independent media outlet the gray zone claims materials relating to the case were not kept or destroyed he suspects that's because they contain information that would have compromised the secret service. the secret service certainly had to have called an ambulance for the complainant who made this false allegation that she was injured the secret service were communicating with one another during this incident during the food delivery they were present and what i think could be the case here is that they're concerned that their collusion with this right wing band of hooligans who were used to do what the secret service was legally forbidden from doing which was preventing food and medicine from getting into them to see that it would expose that that collusion and embarrass the secret service who were themselves operating under the watch of the state department it's just highly unusual that this would have disappeared. we've asked the police to
8:28 am
comment on the case we'll bring you any response we get. that's our wrap up for the day thanks for tuning in. or. what politicians do. to put themselves on the line and they did accept the reject. so when you want to be president or injury. or some one of us. have to go i would be pressed to say what the 43 in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters in the. question. facebook and google started with a great idea and great ideals unfortunately there was also a very dark side. they are constructing a profile of you and that profile is
8:29 am
a real it's detailed and it never goes away turns out that google is manipulating your opinions from the very 1st character that you type into the search bar it will always favor one dog food over another one comparative shopping service over another and one candidate over another they can suppress certain types of results diced on what they think you should be seen if they have this kind of power then democracy is an illusion the free and fair election besan exist for the more we give them the sooner we are all hand.
8:30 am
this emergency just say. this is. one of the $28.00 precincts which yes. and we just got a call from 975770 which is no had including yes with a gun so i would not go to the way he's wearing a brown coat wait is wearing a. right is a different gender what else but all the description we go to see play learn try to recant he didn't say probably but but he didn't say. on this now 11 tape. i got 25. just because i had a tan jacket on the same color that somebody so i had a sauce.
