applied to others washington had imposed restrictions to put pressure on the current government in caracas but it seems it's business as usual for us while majors. watching our 2 international bring you your live news update from our studio here in moscow welcome to the program. the u.n. security council has debated a probe by the global chemical weapons watchdog into an incident in the syrian city of duma back in 2018 russia questions the published findings getting a backlash from western countries during the session a former o.p.c. specialist said the fact finding team had serious misgivings that a chemical attack even occurred there or. watch new. findings information. so
4:02 am
testimony talks in order to study is. this has. this fixed. resulted in a complex turnaround situation from one of those i'm disturbed by the majority of the team. to you let us be in no down there was this chemical weapons attack in june we in 2 huge 15 witnesses in the duma hospital that i'm only witnesses is an undisputable proof that the chemical attack in dumas was falsified and it states caterpillar categorically objects to russia's blatant attempt to use the security council meeting to weaken the credibility of the o.p.c. tasveer and its findings on the duma attacked no one has just to name the guilty even without presenting any evidence and enjoy the support of a little someone's who you really cannot have wolf when eunice so they open
4:03 am
a double publish its report the organization's own inspectors have voiced their concerns that the probe misrepresents the facts for example the initial assessment suggested chlorine cylinders or mentally placed at the scene contradicting the published version weeks also claim that the team that actually went to duma was not included in the group putting together the report are to scale up and has more. the united nations convened a meeting in which the results of the o.p.c. w.'s investigation into the alleged chemical attack in the syrian syrian city of duma in 2018 was discussed now that report from the oas o.p.c. w has come into question after information was revealed leaks cited that crucial evidence was essentially left out of that final report and that crucial evidence that was left out could have pointed toward the attack being staged in henderson
4:04 am
who was a weapons inspector he participated with the o.p.c. w in their fact finding mission in duma he doesn't agree with that he says that he pretty much based on the evidence has concluded that the canisters were placed manually they were not dropped from an airplane this is what in henderson said to the un meeting speaking through video link this is what he in henderson said the findings in the final report were contradictory. with what happened to. the. release of the interim report. 2000 and. 2 was that serious misgivings that a chemical attack. now even henderson is himself an expert on chemical
4:05 am
weapons and the forensic investigations into them furthermore he actually participated in the official o.p.c. w. investigation but regardless that did not stop certain voices from trying to cast doubt on what he said to the u.n. meeting take a listen mr henderson's pape has a pitch reflex a person and. of course their own. bound to be robust exchanges of views with voices differing from others in any scientific process but what counts is the final considered assessment now the syrian government has been absolutely adamant and clear it had nothing to do with the chemical incident some countries. led by the united states of america. continue to exceed the provisions of the convention on the point of chemical weapons by politicizing the war of the o.p.c.
4:06 am
w. and to trying to do that from the track it was created for that was the chemical incident let's recall in 28 chemical incident in which the western countries the united states and france they used that as an opportunity to unleash 100 missiles against the syrian government there. and we've had wiki leaks publish a number of of leaks and information e-mails showing that there just was not unanimous agreement within the o.p.c. w. about who was responsible for the attack based on that this report from the o.p.c.
4:07 am
w has been widely questioned allies of the united states seem to insist that the syrian government is responsible and the opi c.w. report is conclusive and shouldn't be question so once again we have debate over the chemical incident i think the people here are going to continue to. do is going to you know that is clearly what they don't want to uphold there we were in fact what we found is a final report and then also one of these whistleblowers who are made up of the actual scientists and the americans are saying we'd like to report let's just move on and the russians are saying wait a minute let's listen to the actual scientists because it sounds like the science didn't actually go into the final word so obviously the russians in america. and so. with your p.c. don't you to vote on whether you're talking about the who or what are the
4:08 am
scientists who are pushing it goes it doesn't actually represent the 5. we also spoke with now freelance journalist previously barred by newsweek from reporting on the story on the o.p.c. leaks he quit in protest after the magazine's management gag him told us there is no reporting on the issue in the western media this is not something is going to go away it's very serious so. you know we've seen absolutely no reporting about this in the western media if we have. intelligence officials from the united states that can influence the reports of this body it opens the doors to many more situations where you know genuine chemical weapons attacks might not be treated in the same way because the reputation of the body is not taken seriously i think we've already started to see the kind of counter propaganda from the united states already kind of trying to change the narrative of the c.w.
4:09 am
must keep. in check and holder's government to account for chemical weapons attacks but it's completely counter what what the information that we have a present for. the world $22.00 richest men have more wealth than all women in africa combined that's according to a report by charity oxfam on the scale of global inequality it comes as the world economic forum a gathering of the rich and powerful so we're it's 50th anniversary in the swiss alps resort city of davos and amid these rising rifts between the rich and poor confidence in capitalism is diminishing around the globe as dollar quarter explains . how many billionaires does it take to change the light bulb of the world economy $119.00 apparently that's how many will be converging on the world economic forum in davos this year but some people showed up early to their ivory tower.
4:10 am
every year davos hosts billionaires bankers and politicians of the ruling class to talk about issues of global importance and how they want to shape the future and every year it's the same old story the economic forum is celebrating its 50th anniversary some things have changed many things haven't changed all that much a tool except the situation is only getting worse as elite forums like davos fail to provide any serious solutions a recent oxfam report revealed just how widely vast the fish are between rich and poor has become it says the top one percent has as much wealth as the poorest wait for it 6900000000 people that means if you had saved 10 $1000.00 and that's a lot every day since the egypt pyramids were built 4500 years ago you would have
4:11 am
just a fraction of the wealth of any of the world's top billionaires still can't comprehend how much money that is let's try to visualize it if everyone sat on their total wealth made up of $100.00 bills the majority would be sitting on the floor the middle class at about chairs height and the 2 richest men in the world they'd be way out in space this shocking economic situation isn't just a set of statistics though it was the root cause of real chaos that plagues some of the world's most unequal countries in 2019. i. i i i am has proposed an additional point 5 percent tax on the ultra rich to level the playing field a bit it could be
4:12 am
a good solution in a world where the rich actually pay their taxes one of the world's biggest companies for example amazon didn't pay a dime of u.s. corporate taxes on its $11200000000.00 worth of profits in 2018 and a system where there's different rules for the commoners and the captains of industry it's no wonder people across the globe think capitalism has done more harm than good in the past we are coming to a lot of holy in human history in which we are beginning to see the end of capitalism now it has produced a situation where it is both of global system but it has produced results that are simply unacceptable and you see millions and i think bill use of the americans people who run. simply stating this system doesn't
4:13 am
perform in the way we want but who cares right inequality has been there since the beginning of time why should you even bother while the problem is if the current levels of inequality are not solved it's just a matter of time before everything crashes don't take my word for it take the one from the international monetary fund new research shows that inequality tends to increase before a financial crisis signaling a strong link between inequality and financial stability if we act and act together we can avoid repeating the mistakes of the $920.00 s. in the 2020s so as the world's elites are skiing past their luxury is resorts in the alps it feels like the rest of us are. blindly led off a cliff the kinds of inequality. is responsible for example for many deaths that did not meet up with the poor of the world the ones that are only able to get by are the ones who died early. and if you live. in the

welcome back with britain finally set to quit the e.u. prime minister boris johnson's hunt for new trade partners has turned to africa but his past comments on the continent as well as double standards when it comes to
4:20 am
commerce there are raising fresh questions shouting at once daschle reports. prime minister boris johnson is on his latest charm offensive in an attempt to re-establish and boost post threats at business relations and his efforts to woo he's hosted the u.k. african summit right here in london addressing several african leaders though interestingly it was on a much smaller scale conducted his counterparts in russia and india china boris johnson's affair was slightly more intimate hosting just $21.00 of the nation's representatives though in his pitch the prime minister did acknowledge there were various competitors when it comes to investing in africa's economy but said that britain in fact would lead the way and nobody could match britain's quote breadth and depth of expertise and while presenting the u.k. as one of the finest partners for africa boris johnson also mentioned the change of the immigration system within the united kingdom by putting people before possible
4:21 am
. we will be able to attract the best talent from around the world wherever they may be so boris johnson they're saying will put people before passports but that small so apart from his former rhetoric that he spouted way back in 2002 in fact he referred to africa as a blot and even refused to acknowledge the role of britain's colonial past when it comes to the continent's economic problems the coincidence may be a blot but it is not a broad support our conscience the problem is not that we once in charge but that we are not in charge anymore now at the summit boris johnson made even further beneficial pledges to the african leaders he called for an immediate end to the u.k. taxpayers' money going anywhere near any coal mining industries in the region and it's all to do with the drive towards ending climate change from today the british government will no longer provide any new direct official development assistance of
4:22 am
this critically pollution. coal mining coal power plants. sounds attractive but despite the direct investment that the u.k. has in the coal mining industry actually one of the biggest companies involved is anglo american and it's actually based right here in london so despite the u.k. saying it's going to curb coal emissions overseas some of those involved seem to be a lot closer to home which leads me to say one final question can boris johnson's pitches today manage to convince african leaders to go ahead working forward with him in the future not to mention of course the other global powers as competitors we spoke with host of arties going underground afshin rattansi who says there may be pitfalls ahead in johnson's bid to start trade deals with africa. of course this is down to break said british boris johnson thinks that quick trade deals can be made with african countries he may have another thing coming to him of course china
4:23 am
is notable for its massive trade investment strategies in africa they've been going on for more than a decade when the british companies with their colonial reputations with their reputations for linkages between themselves an arms deals and appalling mining mining scandals are regarding british companies is another matter similarly there are british troops in mali there's a strong british military presence so how the military presence the scandals over mining over the colonial inheritance how these will feature in a sudden easy quick fix to grex it problems as regards britain's trade deficit would have to wonder about that. one small step for star wars is proving no giant leap for military design a new uniform planted on america's collective fighting force taking

a leaf out of earthling troops books is barking up the wrong tree as the pentagon branches out into i what it camouflage print critics are throwing shade on the root of the problem that the costumes aren't popular and are too down to earth so they must be spruced up or even axed. just as we have recognized land air sea and cyber as vital war fighting domains we will now treat space as an independent region with today's action we open another great chapter in the extraordinary history of the united states military. they're eerily similar to our earth force uniforms you're going to be hiding behind

death space bush or something. is there a lot of woodland combat environment since clearly you've never been to endorse. my dog is about to camouflage for space than whatever that is if you're looking to save the taxpayers money this is only $3.00 in wal-mart's infant section. who cares that i come out i'm still more in blood we have a dumb spice force. that's out of this world so the co-ordinates let's trade. i'm pretty sure we stopped all the drugs how about one that we could wrap up for now but i'll be back at the top the hour thanks for tuning it.
