the police. there was no. illegitimate seizure of. the government. broadcasting live from our studios in moscow this is r t international and certainly glad to have you with us. right after a night marred by clashes a major anti beijing rally is underway in hong kong and there have already been signs of more unrest with riot police firing tear gas at petrol bomb hurling demonstrators.
a particularly aspect of the unrest violence and brutality when perpetrated by the hong kong protesters has gone largely without comment from the west are too soft to tailor comments. hong kong has gone from being the economic power of the orient to the face of the fight for democracy and boy does that fight fire. an amendment to a preexisting law that would allow the extradition of criminal suspects from hong kong to mainland china has brought the financial haven to its knees as a protest accent into the 7th month violence on both sides has escalated but all the wild over politicians and john continue to hail the peaceful aspirations of
those fighting to rest themselves from beijing all the while coming down hard on those aggressive dust spots in china you have a chinese government that's getting increasingly aggressive increasingly repressive it's disgusting what they're doing in hong kong they're taking away basic rights trying to stream trampling the most basic human rights of its own citizens beijing is increased its interventions in hong kong and engaged in actions to curtail the rights. and liberties. of its people but it seems so many incidents have managed to escape the scrutiny of western media but of course i was . glad. i was. at. scenes like that combined with the discovery of 10000 petrol bombs packed with high
explosives and shrapnel make it harder to see is peaceful what appears to be a slippery slope into the territory of terrorists methods you can all fight for freedom of speech by silencing people. who disagree with you. you cannot fight for democracy by terrorizing the public to force other support you. you cannot condemn brutality by brutalizing people who hold different views to yours deval and acts are one step closer to the acts of terrorism china is treading kathleen refusing to send in troops to shut down the protests and local elections were held in which pro democracy candidates won in a landslide hong kong authorities conceded defeat the extradition built has been withdrawn but still the barricades on signing the flames according to china washington she'd still be china urges the us to correct its mistakes and stop
interfering in our internal affairs we will take further steps if necessary to uphold hong kong stability and prosperity as well as china's sovereignty. some have talked down beijing's words to paranoia but let's take a look joshua was widely billed as the face of the protest movement was snapped speaking to an official at the u.s. consulate oh when i forgot to mention he's not big on compromise so there's no end game there is to infinity ward at home people are willing to engage there's also an organization funded by the u.s. congress which has been distributing money to groups it claims are preserving democratic rights then of course as the in century legislation washington's passed the human rights and democracy out it includes i'm going to stay for those arrested up protests and will monitor hong kong to ensure that in the eyes of the u.s. of course an appropriate level of autonomy from mainland china is. these 2 bills
the noblest intervention of hong kong soon turn will further than necessary and without groans they will also harm the relationship and interests between hong kong and the u.s. all of this on top of the protest as musts waving of the star-spangled banner have sparked concern that the u.s. might be lending more than just a supportive hand leading many to ask the question if the protest as a calling for self-determination is appealing to a foreign power to shape the future the best way to go about it especially when that foreign power might want to contain a rising star they're reaching. for and using methods that have created challenges for the united states and for the world. and we collectively all of us need to confront these challenges from the p.r.c. head on and on each of the many facets of the fallout of all this has a little impact on washington of course it's the average hong kong or who find his
pocket that little bit lighter on his home but little less popular the violence in hong kong has spooked foreign investors shoppers appetite has also soured in the wake of all the via. lance with the retail sales in sri fall and hong kong facing its fast recession in a decade bombed apparently being caught in the middle of take ass and rubber bullets isn't top paying any tourists the wish lists because hong kong saw its lowest number of visitors since 2003 the major. is really the tourists in the region. because. nobody is coming to. tolbert to use them. more. it's dropped by 50 per se as far as as fear rises and as prosperity fades it
seems this fight for freedom is costing hong kong more dearly than many could have imagined. iraqi forces have regained control over the u.s. embassy grounds in baghdad after 2 days of violent clashes reports say protesters tried to set a building in the compound on fire on tuesday a crowd tried to storm the embassy and also torched parts of it the demonstrators are calling for the full withdrawal of american forces from the country. now the u.s. says it will deploy $750.00 troops into iraq in response to the threat posed to its embassy president donald trump has accused iran of orchestrating the attack and valder that it will pay a big price tehran for its part says it does not want war but will not hesitate to strike back if threatened $100.00 marines have already been redeployed from kuwait to reinforce the embassy in a show of strength u.s. army helicopters flew over the compound firing flares as
a warning to the protesters and the embassy unrest comes after american bombing raids in iraq and syria at the weekend 25 people were killed as artie's comment. iraq is in flames the u.s. embassy in baghdad has been seized by crowds of people chanting death to america. was was was the. really good god i. was. we got was. that you might think that iraq has plenty of reason to be outraged with the united states you might recall that whole invading destroying and killing thousands of people in the country thing however trunk doesn't see it that way this is his assessment of it that iran killed
an american contract when too many we strongly respond and always will now iran is orchestration an attack on the us embassy in iraq they will be held fully responsible in addition we expect iraq to use forces to protect embassy and so north of heart it's all about iran one of the things we want to emphasize is that this was a defensive action that was designed to protect american forces and american citizens in iraq we're also working on the mission city of restoring deterrence against in rimi an aggression that the united states recently conducted airstrikes against iranian backed militias in iraq in syria this comes after washington blamed iran for the recent rocket attack that killed an american contractor american officials say the airstrikes are completely justified but iraq disagrees with what happened yesterday was a clear aggression it was not right and we tried to stop it but the u.s. insisted and very unfortunately this thing happened to him i said that this was
a very dangerous matter and asked to discuss it face to face with the responsible parties and not only by phone he said. the decision has been made and i am informing you of this iran also disagrees wonderful rudeness of the us officials is to such an extent that off to the must take over 25 people who and we number of iraqis and violating iraqi territorial integrity and national sovereignty it is now in a flagrant brain graeme attributing the rockies purposes to islamic public overrun the united states has long been working to crush iranian influence in the region this is been a long time talking point of the us foreign policy hawks iran is the major destabilizing in influence in the middle east and we aim to fix that one of the greatest security threats facing peace loving nations today. is the repressive regime in iran are ready to think twice about that. but why is iranian influence on
the rise in the middle east let's not forget that the united states long propped up the ron's greatest enemy saddam hussein and even provided him with chemical weapons however the usa invaded iraq in 2003 and toppled the iraqi government since that time iran has stepped up its support for different factions in the country hoping to stabilize its own borders iranian influence in iraq is massive especially among the shia majority of the population now this isn't because of some sinister plot from the ayatollah critics note that washington's actions simply left a power vacuum. r.t. new york r.t. has spoken to the group targeted by the u.s. as bala here's what it's a spokesperson had to say. the americans are striking at this particular force in iraq want to present their actions as a fight against iranian influence but that is not after being attacked by the gangs
of eisel it was the iraqi people. often resistance not the iranians. concluded a strategic framework agreement between the usa and iraq does not allow the americans to create military bases in iraq but this agreement is not being implemented today the americans are occupying iraq in military bases against the backdrop of protests in iraq the united states is trying to intervene in this process in establish its leadership which will lead to complete anarchy in the country and the american presence in iraq will be supposedly justified traditionally the us uses made a pretext to attack in this case the attacks on american bases are just a cover for defeating the shiite militia. ukrainian former riot police are charged with being part of the group of officers who shot civilians in the made on protests in kiev in 2014 i have spoken to journalists for the 1st time
officers were exchanged on sunday in the prisoner swap between kiev and the self-proclaimed. republics and more than 50 protesters lost their lives in shootings blamed by ukraine on the riot police however the released officers say they have evidence disproving that giving further weight to claims that the attacks were in fact carried out by pro snipers. but because. the evidence shows that the police acted lawfully there was no order to open fire on the citizens a terrorist act against the police did take place an illegitimate seizure of power occurred the government offices were taken over we are determined to prove to the ukrainian people that the ukrainian police work to protect them. but we were beaten in the crimean. so the office the offices even came to a pretrial detention facility pretending to be lawyers masked security officers
beat us in a cell i needed heart surgery i read this in the court but they forced me to plead guilty in order to receive treatment it would be that we were tortured for the 1st 2 weeks we were almost killed they did not try to get any information from us as they knew we didn't have any they just wanted to pin the blame for the crimes that were committed on us. still ahead more from our review of the year that was if there is a chance he missed any of the 200-1000 biggest moments we have covered stay with us . in a world of big partisan movie lot 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 past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. who are all those driven by the dream of. the day or thinks. we dare to ask.
my welcome back this is our t. international now with 200-1000 officially behind us let's take a look back at more of the events that defined the year. all right so we have the big board here with the 2019 highlights let's take a look at what we have on the 2nd hour there we go so don't believe the hype and miracles happen we can get to this topic here in a 2nd but let's see what happens in don't believe the hype all right so we have some different topics that took place the final bragg's it did that take place well we all know how that turned out water well what do you know the story about anti-doping here in russia and tic toc shock let's take a look at that one and i think it deserves a sound effect. all right artie's i've been trying to look at the rise of a new application now called tick tock it has become hugely popular although it is not liked by everyone tech.
so now you know. i'll be honest with you up until last week i had no idea this thing even exist it take tock tick tock for me simply the sound i associate with the clock well if you feel the same i'll have to tell you either you're getting old like me or it's just that your online habits need an urgent update take talk a platform to share short videos is now the most downloaded app the king of all apps and twitter and co you've been dethroned just so you know ever heard the song.
if it wasn't for his app store majesty the song wouldn't have become a hit you can hear on the radio anywhere in the world but here's something that may surprise old school folks like me even more the king belongs to an asian dynasty tick tock is that chinese app. so that's why the top democrat senator in his late sixty's is more up to speed than me 110000000 americans who have information with and the chinese government could be grabbing every one of them guess what the u.s. government is already up to reports say they've launched a national security probe into tick talk and the worries are the chinese government could spy through take talk influence through take talk and censor what's on tape talk good god how come the rest of the world hasn't given up american born facebook
speaking of the man who introduced the blue f to us all it's only natural he is keen to have a go at his competitors or services like what's up are used by protesters and activists everywhere due to strong encryption privacy protections on tick tock the chinese are quickly around the world mentions of these same protests. censored now just let me show you what the people behind tick-tock have to say about all that our data centers are located entirely outside of china and none of our data is subject to chinese law we are not influenced by any foreign government including the chinese government to talk does not operate in china nor do we have any intention of doing so in the future oh someone here is either being really does honest or outright paranoid or a bit of both it's time to stick in. the us china trade wars i'll tell you what this year has shown these has still ities could easily spill over into modern tech
