in the stores the. conservative party swept through its biggest. 3 decades. 6 hours of talks in paris russia ukraine france and germany agreed to. in eastern ukraine by the end of this year.
3:01 am
look at the biggest stories covered here over the past 7 days i'm calling bright 1st to the fortunes of russia's athletes the country's been kicked out of all international sporting events for the next 4 years punishment says the world anti-doping agency for moscow tampering with a key database of test results from russian athletes. this is about russia protect the rights of russia see each. entry for make sure it's. st. not. you we. comply what is important thing to these decisions. we are really sanctioning those who are responsible for this many politicians and leave those open for those who had nothing to do is. in russia clean. and able to experts who provided convincing on says unfortunately they haven't
3:02 am
heard us 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 want to be objective decision let's do it like this was saddam has all the necessary opportunities they could have taken a different approach ok a blow for sure but as you heard what he says the clean athletes will be able to compete under a neutral flag but russian officials are now prohibited from attending major sporting events the country too will not be allowed to host any tournament and the list of events that russia is now being excluded from is extensive it includes the olympics and paralympic games coming up next summer in tokyo also football's fifa world cup in qatar 2 years after that russia of course was the last to host that event and what an event it was its players though will now have to go with neutrals if they qualify water and says that the onus is on the clean players to prove that they are in the plane next our sports correspondent alexey irish if he breaks down
3:03 am
the waterboarding for. 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 on innocent proven guilty and i'm in school you're guilty until you can prove you're innocent a complete reversal of justice system on 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 and all it can do is sanction resettling and take actions relative to schools so it's come up with this international standard to code compliance signatories which is used to sanction russia this time round. on top of everything it seems that what his decision from monday was made in such
3:04 am
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 see for tournament well where you are where you quite expected that. these sanctions will not affect in any way russian part of the upcoming euro are 1st of all it's a continental tournament not of world qualification for or for compartment it. is again within the competence of us for sure that 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 forbids racial sports and this process takes longer than the official preparation for next
3:05 am
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 2020 for some big games in paris from whichever side you look at it monday's decision by water looks like a vocal and very harsh indictment of 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 year this is a punitive action against the law including begin to shoot once. more in just a few. garage if it's not going to particular which there's no evidence of this against them this may be raising a human rights issue whether. they're going to raise this before recording or i'm not entirely certain we have to accept that there is
3:06 am
a will become involved. i think there actually applying if more. here there once was in terms of. the russian the english and russian roots of expect with great anticipation to see what. point in that's what it's doing it's like saying i'm going to come into the kitchen where you can you know decide who comes and goes. well echoing some of those thoughts through a phase in the sports community that the band could demotivated generation of future athletes. for a few years i expected something like this after rio. to be honest it was expected it's a pity the athletes have to suffer it's terrible it's terrible for all rational sports that's what i feel about it. i don't want to
3:07 am
make a link between sports and politics but it looks like good for those sanctions imposed by the west for the last few years. of the someone just wanted to punish our country but this is without reason a country is not a 3 year old child. allow us to compete under the neutral flag somehow they don't want to see the russian colors. but maybe our flag is something irritating and someone doesn't want to see us competing under our old flag in our own anthem. says it is that i have already hired a lawyer and even if they don't allow me to participate while i'm already a grandmother of sports maybe this is our fate. will somehow unite us and use those below to participate and additional booze but it does the doping issue i'm sure more than 90 percent of all athletes are. but i guess. after leagues we
3:08 am
support you and i'm sure you have enough patience together we do it. all the big stories from the way venom boris johnson's conservative party want to resign after a very strong showing in britain's historic general election on thursday as for the opposition labor liberal democrat party is now both on the new leaders north of the border it was a decisive win for the scottish national party which has reignited their calls for another independence referendum from the u.k. here's how the party leaders reacted to a dramatic night in westminster as the result sank in. proud to say that members of our new one nation government a people's government will sit out from constituencies that have never returned a conservative m.p. for 100 years and yes they will have an overwhelming mandate from this election to get it done and we will honor that mandate by general the 31st of all not only
3:09 am
departing in any future general election campaign i will discuss with our party to ensure there is a process now of reflection on this result and on the policies that the party will take going forward the stunning election win last night for the s.n.p. is reinforces and strengthens the mandate we have from previous elections to offer the people of scotland a choice over their future that monday it says that it is for the scottish parliament nort a westminster government to say whether and when this should be a new referendum on independence a quick look at the numbers there are currently 650 seats in the house of commons that means a party that need 326 to command a majority there the conservatives what that aside through the 365 seats while labor got $203.00 that's the lowest result since the 19th thirties saskia taylor
3:10 am
takes a look at how the u.k. got to this point. thursday saw the 3rd general election in just 4 years so how did we end up on this roller coaster again wost wel my friends it's the usual suspect yeah you guessed it the. brat sits to play it turns out that decision taken by those 17400000 people in june 26th exit the e.u. set off a chain reaction that's led to this moment but i'm guessing ahead of myself let's start from the beginning the british people have made a very clear decision to take a different part of my view we should aim to have a new prime minister in place ok so now we're down one prime minister let's see how the next one fat a couple of weeks later to resume a tick on the and then double role of finding a way through the process that wilderness and she was very clear about her goal
3:11 am
bricks it means bricks it rex it means bricks it and where we're going to make a success of the original deadline was set for march 29th teen oh those early days of optimism but this is possibly the most divisive political issue the u.k. has faced in recent memory m.p.'s have never felt so important all powerful so it's unsurprising that may was thwarted at every turn by those less willing to cut ties with our european friends fed up she decided to go in and call a snap election in june 2017 we need a general election and we need one now but it was a gamble that just didn't pay off the conservatives lost the majority they counting on tide already me to also taught at this point every single. your charge of the infighting your charge of the political games and the arcane
3:12 am
procedural rounds but disappointment in the polls was really the least of may's prop. the opposition tried to get rid of her own m.p.'s tried to get rid of her and then she said she'd get rid of herself if only they'd back deal which they didn't and it just ended up being too much for may she decided to finally hang up her lap it heels i do so with no ill will but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country i love ok so now we're down to prime ministers who's our lucky introducing boris johnson former mayor of london a bit of a daft man just like his predecessor he was absolutely adamant that he'd be the one to get it done can you make a promise today to the british public that you will not go back to brussels and ask for another delay to practice it yet and so you can and. to his
3:13 am
credit he's really gone for it he was sick of parliament blocking his ideas so dissolved that for dissolved so that he went to the e.u. and negotiated a new deal which parliament defeated and then they forced to quest and not that extension which really really really didn't want to do but to do anyway and then he just decided enough so not so wasn't she taunted the opposition party into facing off at a general election in order to quote get it done which my friends i think brings you up today. we're looking ahead then we found out a few experts and politicians from around the u.k. for their views on the election results and possible consequences. now boris can go into a meeting to negotiate and the you can be certain that what's agreed in that meeting will actually get through parliament the big problem that we've had so far is really any suggestion that was made seem to run into this blocking wall in
3:14 am
parliament who were determined to vote against just about everything the labor party used to say they were voting against against different solutions called caucus and then turns into an election then they voted against an election as well as a small force i think is the sentiment of the people of scotland there but it's not based on the views of any one politician this period to the sentiment of people scotland has been moving gradually and no rapidly towards independence but at least an overwhelming view that scotland should have the right to determine its own future that they see change in subcommittee status that is the better system will force the a movable object is bought as johnson though it may well be that. bought us jobs and put these things out and that they can hold back the floods generally speaking that sort of politics gives out eventually and i would have my money's on the other system will force as opposed to the a movable object in terms of standing the test of time and of course of the last 2

years the unionist political electoral majority was ended as a result of this election unionist political representation in the north has been reduced to a minority and not quite safe to make and the context not only of the bracks issue but also with respect to the unfolding constitutional debate and ireland north and south. this is us a still to come on the weekly afghanistan sees more violence as details emerge on the scale of the u.s. led military campaigns via their pulled out into that and more in 90 seconds. the world is driven by a dream shaped by. thinks
3:16 am
. we dare to ask. you know world of big partisan movies a lot of things 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 smarter we need to stop slamming the door. 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
3:17 am
for watching closely watching the hawks. choose day a suicide bomber detonated his car outside one of america's main military outpost in afghanistan the field the attack came not long after a surprise thanksgiving visit by president trump local media reported a powerful blast hitting a medical facility located in the immediate vicinity of the base his main gate the attack reportedly claimed at least one life with as many as 62 others injured and initial reports suggested that suicide bomber targeted a u.s. military convoy the american officials deny that. now against this backdrop of revealing news articles appeared in the u.s. which details gives a deliberate this information on the part of top american officials who would transpires have been putting on a brave face despite knowing the unpalatable truth about the afghan war. hundreds of thousands dead trillions of dollars lost generations traumatized but
3:18 am
you know what nothing good comes easy nothing in afghanistan we helped liberate an oppressed people. and we will continue helping them secure their country rebuild their society and educate all their children boys and girls. all that i set to defeat al qaeda and deny it a chance to rebuild is within reach and we're doing a tremendous job. and as you know a big part of the job is isis certainly the biggest and al qaeda and we. we've got them down very low numbers you didn't need to be nostradamus or clairvoyant to know that someone was telling bull it's just logical fallacy you can't keep fighting the same guys for 20 years and claim the joule winning but then appearances must be kept up it's important that everyone thinks you're winning right up to the
3:19 am
moment you admit you lost why well it's obvious no one has the remotest clue we were trying to do here we didn't have the focus notion of what we were undertaking there is a fundamental gap of understanding of the front end of the stated objectives. in the military and the lack of understanding of the resources necessary and we'd never have known if it hadn't been thousands of secret and classified documents on afghanistan stuff from the white house from the pentagon the un and the various n.g.o.s well we would have known it's pretty damn obvious that the war is going terribly but who says mouth and all that it is worth considering what the president did deficient said and what they actually believed when i called our troops in action i did so with complete confidence in their courage and skill and tonight.
3:20 am
thanks to them. we are winning the war on terror. and. today we lack metrics to know if we are winning or losing the global war on terror are we capturing killing or deterring a dissuading more terrorists every day than the mid russ's on the radical clerics are recruiting training and deploying against us does the us need to fashion a broad integrated plan to stop the next generation of terrorists the us is putting relatively little effort into a long range plan but we are putting a great deal of effort into trying to stop terrorists the cost benefit ratio is against us see when you're in your 2nd term and you started a really messy war that you just realized you can't hope to win there only so many ways to save your own but here's a list of words you should use courage democracy kids' schools and hospitals and for the people that don't buy your baloney get a hope in there as well thanks to the courage of these military and civilian
3:21 am
personnel a nation that was once a safe haven for al qaeda is now a young democracy where boys and girls are going to school new roads and hospitals are being built and people are looking to the future with new hope also poor in money into huge infrastructure projects to obligate money that was appropriated to so we could spend it through building infrastructure in ways that have again instant could never sustain or even the use in some cases if you're a nato country taxpayer i honestly don't believe you can comprehend how much of your money was poured into this adventure you 1st need to understand the sheer degree of incompetence that these leaked documents show imagine for example someone's putting together a crew for a bank heist they invite a bunch of people give them a time and place and tell no one what their role is no plan so everyone shows up
3:22 am
thinking that. everyone outs knows what to do and things go as you would expect now is the time to save your own heinie let's add a few more words difficult days human rights confidence success we will reward good governance work to reduce corruption and support the rights of all afghans men and women alike. there will be difficult days ahead but i am absolutely confident we will succeed. you just cannot put those amounts of money into a very fragile state and society and not have if you corruption you just can't a legacy of mass corruption that's putting it lightly what else did you expect the guys on the ground they saw disaster they were reported back to washington washington with its countless the partment didn't have the courage to stand up and
3:23 am
say they screwed up so they put up appearances everyone was doing what made them look best rather than what worked best interesting enough many of the documents were published with the name lessons learned perhaps an effort to extract something anything of value from this unmitigated disaster but you know as it has got a star not long ago and after seeing what i saw there i can tell you all asli i can guarantee you that while they may have learned their lessons they sure as heck are putting them to use. peace efforts for eastern ukraine showed signs of progress this week the leaders of russia and ukraine france and germany held 6 hours of talks in paris aim to resolving the violence the conflict broke out back in 2014 with the eastern region seeking independence from kiev of the nominee for format of talks has been in hiatus for more than 3 years but president putin and ukraine's

leader of late even as a landscape both describe the new meeting as positive. yes there. 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 and that's the meeting was long and difficult but the mood of the meeting was a positive thing. and a written statement to all parties committed to a comprehensive cease fire by the end of this year and to complete it all for all prisoner swap as well they also pledged to withdraw troops from certain conflict zones before next april and to ensure that the areas were seen mind. your next edition of the weekly is in just over 35 minutes from now after worlds apart looks at the progress in the u.s. and china's trade deal this week why it's going to take more than that to patch of
