because of the. stories that shape the way crushes handed a 4 year battle participating in or hosting major sports events following a scandal involving the alleged tampering about fleet medical data. but that aside still struggle how could the ban use the whole country all athletes no matter whether they don't or not they should just punish don't square a guilt british conservative party swept to its biggest election victory of more than 30 years but the scottish national party also winning big north of the border giving renewed impetus to independence called. talks between the u.s. and the taliban to put on hold our 1st suicide bombing outside an american air base in afghanistan that donald trump visited only 2 weeks earlier.
5:01 pm
every 7 days we'll recap the big new stories we brought you live here from moscow on r.t. international here is again this is the weekly with me kevin now in thanks for your time today we're starting with this one of the big stories of the week russia being kicked out of major 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 athlete this is upon against russia that protects the rights of russian seats but the reentry so make sure is being. able to demonstrate that they are not. in any way he doesn't comply what is important thing to these decisions. are really sanctioning those for responsible. for this many politicians and leave doors open for those who are hurt
5:02 pm
nothing to do is dipping scandal in russia in. our experts have provided convincing on says unfortunately they haven't 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 all want to objective decision let's do it like this was saddam has all the necessary opportunities they could have taken a different approach so what is says clean earth leads will be able to compete under a neutral flag but russian officials however are no prohibited from attending major sporting events or the country also won't be allowed to host any tournament and there is more than a list of events that russia is being excluded from is extensive these are some of the highlights or lowlights maybe a little pick up paralympic lympics coming up in tokyo 2020 russia kind of officially go there and football's world cup we just saw about the fee for world
5:03 pm
cup in qatar 2 years after that russia of course the host of that event recently its players if they want to go along for the next one have to play as neutrals if they qualify what is insisting that the onus is on clean players to prove that they haven't doped our sports correspondent alexia's yes he breaks down the ruling a bit more for us. it is quite unclear how exactly stripping a nation of its flag in a major sports competitions across the planet can actually solve the problem of fighting against doping you're not on innocent until proven guilty and i'm in it to you're guilty as he can prove you're innocent complete redress 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 but it doesn't at yours dictionary to the russian authorities become sanction russian politicians and all it can do is censure resettling and take actions relative to schools so it's come up with this
5:04 pm
international standard to code compliance by 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 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 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 so you have a 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
5:05 pm
a neutral country. and if you're not yet confused enough they already said directly that should russia appeal to cas 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 ban 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 cast 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 i'm not convinced
5:06 pm
the reason more than just a few. garage incidents nothing to particular with 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 of protection board i'm not entirely certain we have to accept but there is a when we think of them and they're involved. in their action applying a very big news for more of an emotive crusade here they once were in terms of collateral damage that the russian the english and russian expect with great anticipation to see what the i.o.c. . point in the lesson is doing it's like saying i'm going to come into your. room you and i will decide who comes and goes. well some of the big russian sport names have been sharing their reactions with us on the ban. but the doping scandal lasted for a few years i expected something like this after rio. to be honest it was
5:07 pm
expected it's a pity the athletes have to suffer it's terrible it's terrible for all russian sports that's what i feel about it. it's just i don't want to make a link between sports and politics but it looks like good for those sanctions imposed by the west for the last few years. 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. maybe our flag is something irritating and someone doesn't want to see us compete in our own flag in our own anthem. i have already hired a lawyer and even if they don't allow me to participate while i'm already
5:08 pm
a grandmother sports maybe this is our fate was more begin you will somehow unite us and if those below to participate and additional boost but it does the doping issue i'm sure more than 90 percent of athletes are clean. that i guess but if we're in the athletes we support you and i'm sure you have enough patience together we will do it. making other headlines big time in the u.k. this next story boris johnson's conservative party winning that resoundingly dominating performance in britain to storage general election on thursday as for the opposition labor and liberal democrat parties then are both looking for new leaders after a different picture north of the border up in scotland the scottish national party almost sweeping the board in terms of seats and that's reignited their calls for another independence referendum. in the u.k. so 1st here's how the respective party leaders reacted to a dramatic night as those results came in and sank in. a pride to say that members
5:09 pm
of our new one nation government a people's government will set 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 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. renew reinforces and strengthens the mandate we have from previous elections to offer the people of scotland a choice over their future their mandate says that it is for the scottish parliament nort a westminster government to decide whether and when the should be
5:10 pm
a new referendum on independence so quick look at the numbers there are 650 seats in the house of commons so a party needs 326 to hold a majority of them plus one the conservatives took hold of through $65.00 seats labor got $203.00 that was their lowest result since the montini thirty's saskia taylor breaks it down some more. thursday saw the general election in just 4 years so how did we end up on this rollercoaster again wost wel my friends it's the usual suspect yeah you guessed it. it works it's too late 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
5:11 pm
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 took on the and then doable role of finding a way through the process that wilderness and she was very clear about her goal bricks it means bricks it rex it means bricks it and we're going to make a success of it 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'd been
5:12 pm
counting on tide already me to also taught at this point every single. year taj of the infighting your charge of the political games and the arcane procedural rounds but disappointment in the polls was really the least of may's problems 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 from a who decided to finally hang up put 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 whose our lucky introducing boris johnson former mayor of london a bit of
5:13 pm
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 redeem. ditch to his credit he's really gone for it he was sick of parliament blocking his ideas so dissolved that topple dissolved so that he. to the e.u. and negotiated a new deal which parliament defeated and then they forced to turn quest and not that extension which he really really really didn't want to do but to do anyway and then he just decided enough is enough 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 yes. indeed it does now we sounded some expert some
5:14 pm
politicians to from around the u.k. for their views on the election results and possible consequences now the next few weeks. 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 parliament who were determined to vote against just about everything the labor party used to say they were voting against against different solutions click what was needed was a general election then they voted against an election as well as a small force i think is the sentiment of the people of scotland that is not based on the views of any one politician it's period to the sentiment of people scotland has been moving gradually and no rapidly towards independence of at least an overwhelming view that scotland should have the right to determine its own future that is the chain suck and status that is the ever system will force the
5:15 pm
a movable object is brought us johnson though it may well be that. brought us johnson can put his thinking that in 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 at 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 action issue but also with respect to the unfolding constitutional debate and ireland north and so you know it's $160.00 in the morning here in moscow to tell you it is with you thank you for taking the time to watch us coming up in the weekly washington has frozen talks with the afghan taliban after
5:16 pm
a suicide bombing to talk about it in the weekly web where bad.
5:17 pm
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race. spearing dramatic to follow can only. exist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. live from russia this is about international watching weekly with me kevin though in a story happening right now this weekend as mass protests continue to be india over new citizenship nor for a 5th day shots were allegedly fired earlier at the university campus in new delhi police a believe it was stormed said campus with tear gas following violent scenes over the past 24 hours which saw a number of fatalities now video coming up next of the reported shooting saying
5:18 pm
that was posted online and one of the classrooms that jimmy a university. i i will. as mentioned it comes as protests have intensified nationwide over a new law which could grab millions of migrants in india citizenship status but crucially this is what big problem is from other people excludes muslims and one demonstration in the northeast close to neighboring nepal bhutan and bangladesh where people were seeing their burning an effigy of the country's home minister that was in the city of siliguri and then protesters claim the law is not only discriminatory but also unconstitutional they say as the country's opposition threatens to take the case now to the supreme court hundreds of joined hunger strike in india's northeast as well where troops have been deployed in the internet shut down i talked earlier to the editor from new delhi news cited told me fear and confusion is gripping india as big changes are taking place there now. what we have
5:19 pm
now is the police into the university sometime earlier this evening which in itself is a huge violation you you the please don't enter university grounds the matter what the provocation and the police used an outrageous amount of force the police clear in that this was in response to violence that the good that protesters had done earlier but you know there's really no confirmation to now who did that violence because this is a fundamental change 7 to how india is as a country it's a constitutional change this act makes it a point to single out muslims it's a very concerted attempt to leave islam out of that matrix the. official reason given for this act has been is is to give shelter to religious minorities you know this bill is really playing to the ruling party so we don't
5:20 pm
know right now you know it's all up in the air that's the big 50 you know the story right now there is there is confusion within the government there is no clear messaging on what the aims of this bill are other than to polarize in. a feeling i mean right now another developing story this and they some the worst parts in 2 months of demonstrations have been playing over the last day or so including earlier on tonight various times in beirut capital lebanon protesters they're out in force with tear gas deployed by police just moments ago and rubber bullets fired been sporadic there since government types again though overnight obvious a struggle to get a handle on chaotic scenes there in text clashes and clashes between demonstrators and the authorities triggered by opposing groups of protesters confronting each other rubber bullets tear gas water cannons used to try to disperse the huge crowds at some point dozens of people reportedly injured the nation where we were against alleged high level corruption started back in october with anger also being vented
5:21 pm
against public services and the economy. in fact let's go there's live pictures now what's happening there. you can see emergency services out there ambulances blue flashing lights we saw some shots earlier on it want to be dogs we could bring them to you can see one of the distance there seems to be a big crowd of people but at the moment from that shot at least it's pretty quiet but it's been sporadic if it kicks off again for them i will go to it right let's move on next. more of the news of the week the united states this last week announced a pause in peace talks with the taliban after a suicide bomber killed 2 civilians outside the air base that attack came just 2 weeks after a surprise thanksgiving visit by this to the same base by president trump a powerful blast at that medical facility near the main gate after it all than 60 people were injured in the explosion and the report suggested the suicide bomber had targeted a u.s. military convoy but something that washington denies back to that visit to weeks before during a president transfers it to the bagram air base you may recall he struck
5:22 pm

5:24 pm
a delicacy you watched as a report. in the troubled 19 seventies a group of killers rampage through parts of northern ireland that was coordinated loyalist attacks to take the only catholic population in belfast tens of thousands of forced to flee their homes come up with straight and put these attacks. was that the or you see the police actually took part in the attacks so instead of preventing it they were active participants in the whole streets in belfast at the time more than a 100 innocent civilians were. seniors and we found out more i was surprised about the extent to which the solution was involved in some of those cases the killers would lead to be named. i think it went to the very very top i think it is. the water where politicians. give the go ahead.
5:25 pm
when i was a child's seemed wrong. but old roles just don't hold. any old baby
5:26 pm
yet to shape out of disdain and become agitated and in games from an equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. i had a spiritual experience. and i had the little girl that died in the fire sent their colonies. as a 5 year old son. were looking for a kidney reaching. 54 years old and 21 years on good role model. and one didn't commit. my own stupidity business and doesn't read the newsgroups but nobody would listen. you know
5:27 pm
the. trial was pretty much a farce. we already had them guilty before the trial. nobody. caught. was. not truthful you will run it. through through to me hasn't forgiven himself for something. i knew she was in there and i knew exactly what i was doing. people life. sometimes there's no explanation.
5:28 pm
and we don't know what facebook's aims are in fact facebook doesn't know what its aims are because it's going to be the sum total of all the people who are working on these algorithms a whistleblower someone who used to work for facebook came forward last year and said i was one of the news charioteers at facebook a bunch of us used to sit around every day and we used to remove stories from the news feed that were too conservative and now and then we inject a story that we thought was really cool. facebook founder mark zuckerberg says he's committed to giving everyone a voice news from responding to an allegation that facebook edits conservative views out of its trending topics they can suppress certain types of results based on what they think you should be seeing based on what your followers are presenting now a new report claims that according to a former facebook employee the social media mega company sometimes ignores what is
5:29 pm
actually trending among its 1000000000 users if the story originated from a conservative news source or if it's a topic causing buzz among conservatives. facebook costly manipulates or users they do it by the things that they insert into the news feeds they do it by the types of posts they allow their users to see and the fact that they actually decided to do psychological experiments on their users is something that i think a lot of people need to really fully understand and they were doing it based upon the fact that different things that people posted they want to see how other people would react to it. on how to watch what your facebook friends posts can have a direct effect on your mood new research shows the more negative posts you see the more negative you could become. so if for example let's say somebody wanted to post something that was on the news feed that was a very negative story they want to see how their users would react via their lie.
5:30 pm
by their statements fire their posts and they would show people who already had a predilection to maybe having some depression or maybe having some other issues in their lives and they can figure that out based upon your like space upon your connections based upon where you're going and so what they want to do is take that information and then use it to basically weaponize this information against their users so that way their users could see different things that may affect their mood and may affect how they interact with others and that's something that is highly unethical it appears that some young people may have been so affected by this that they may have done harm to themselves based upon what they saw on their facebook feed and it was all because it is experiments on the things that we have no standing with facebook we're not citizens of facebook we have no blood on facebook it's not a democracy. this process is not a way we can design the future we can't rely on this single company to invent our digital future.
