11:00 am
ah ah, the headlines this are a useful me thing with a candidate exchange of opinions at a critical moment that had the russian and u. s. foreign policy chief described that told in geneva, which didn't come, i made rising tensions over ukraine and nato expansion. construction of police both his love to scroll through a couple of random pages to be sure, none of the provisions stand up with any critical analysis. in many cases, it is simply a lie. put out the new conference after the talk. so gala pro flashes out us officials and mainstream media pushing fresh unproven claims against moscow will examine those claims later. this our mala,
11:01 am
report claims for pope benedict 16th failed to take action the allegations of sexual abuse among the clergy in germany. and also to come lessons not learned as another high rise is being built in london, but the same design forwards as the notorious grand fell tower renewing fears about the devastating glaze that killed more than 17 people to speak to a man who lost his family in the tragedy it's like is with the law profits before lives. i'm just calling her really over learn with good evening at 7 o'clock here in moscow. you watching artie international now the top diplomats of russia and the us have finished their security talks in switzerland. the sanctions over ukraine do remain high. washington is expected to provide moscow with a written response. the cremins concerns next week from geneva,
11:02 am
peter all over reports. so wraps up here in geneva and we've now got a much clearer picture of exactly how both the us and russian side see these talks having gone, we heard from said again are for off the russian foreign minister who described them as useful and constructive. we heard from anthony blink in the u. s. secretary of state who said that they were frank and substances. we'll start with the russian foreign minister said gail afro flow. he was 1st to give his press conference after the meeting wrapped up. he said that washington had promised to provide an answer in writing to security concerns that had been presented by moscow to their us partners. now he said that these weren't just security concerns focusing on ukraine . they were for the wider european area. he said that the future of these talks would depend on the response from the united states there. but he said that the diplomatic doors pretty much remained open. it's worth pointing out,
11:03 am
there was no major movement on any of the, the big sticking points during and these talk certainly what the representatives thief, a foreign minister in the, a secretary state had to say that was tow major and tectonic shifts in where the risk, respective countries stand, what we did here though, from the russian foreign minister, as he addressed questions from the u. s. media with him say that there was no intention from moscow for them to invade ukraine at any time. why is russia doing this now? why do you feel that you need to make these troop deployments now, when really the security posture of the u. s. a. nato really hasn't changed over the past couple of years. my store seemed to grow minute because i think the u. s. state department should analyze the methods of cnn in regard to accuracy. you say we're going to attack ukraine despite a multiple explanations of what once we're saying this will happen. you then ask why now, when do we not attack? it's a strange question so, so,
11:04 am
so we've caused repeated all fundamental point that never ending made 2 expansion to east should be still to anthony, blinking repeated his position on the right to choose alliance. it asked him how the u. s. plans to follow his obligation not to strengthen some of the security at the expense of the security of others. he promised to explain the us position on zillow. well said galen, for all press conference was followed up with one from u. s. secretary of state anthony blinking the u. s. chief diplomat saying that the that diplomatic route remained open to finding a solution for the tensions between russia and the west white. now he said that he'd received, the sharon says from said galen roland has worked hard to know it ancient old invading ukraine. at this moment he said he'd received those assurances in the past as well with the actions of russia didn't match up to that. then that would be a response from the united states and its allies and not response would be swift, severe, and united. he said that there will be
11:05 am
a response from washington to those concerns that were voiced by m moscow and that response will be coming in the next week. he also said that there's ways and means available to take the heat out of the current situation. transparency, confidence, building measures, military exercises, arms control agreements. these are all things that we've actually done in the past . and that if a address seriously can, i believe reduce tensions and address some of the, some of the concerns. well, the us secretary of state also sketched out a potential timeline of where we could be going next. he said that once they've responded to moscow, he would expect that there would be further meetings at the foreign ministerial level, perhaps here in geneva. and if those meetings went well, that that could be another meeting between president putin and president biden, perhaps face to face, perhaps here in geneva, repeat. so what we sold last year,
11:06 am
which took place in the swiss city. what we have seen though is a continuation of willingness to continue the dialogue over these ongoing tensions between russia and the west. okay, well let's get the thoughts now of geopolitical alice rayner ra 1st. good evening. see ryan around. the us says it will give a written response to russia's concerns next week. what sort of response do you think we can expect? i don't think we can expect a statement which confirms that nato will not expand further east. and this is the main point that russia is claiming, and therefore i expect no real movement toward the solution of the ongoing conflict. we might not get there in one leap, but you think that concessions can be made to start with the very least to keep the talks continuing. well, the question is,
11:07 am
what is the long term strategy of the united states? and of course, we see now the development of the ukraine, which is in line with the previous policy of the united states under president barack obama, when a biden of what, why the president. so the escalation strategy seems to be the choice of the united states government, and therefore, we cannot expect that those dialect, those talks will ended soon. for me, it's an issue which is of major importance also for of course of the european countries for the u itself, which had increased the pressure upon russia through sanctions, which have harmed also a lot that germany economy about all the parts of our country and that you
11:08 am
and other european countries are not even at the table. so this is very some fact i would normally do things that europe can exert some influence on america through other channels. because, you know, it's in europe's interest to have peace in europe. surely, there must be some voices as it is saying. let's just hold on a bit and talk more. so far we can only see that the european union is closely following the path that the united states as training with its diplomacy. and with its escalation strategy, european union could make a big difference. it could become an important player in the diplomatic reopened. if it made a difference in the dialogue with russia, but so far we haven't seen any of that. why do you think the west is so reluctant to accept rusty's arguments and concerns about nato eastwood expansion?
11:09 am
well, that's hard to say, because usually you would assume that the european union also sees its own geopolitical, interact in maintaining good relationships with russia because europe strongly depend also on the energy prohibition on behalf of russia. what we see now, or in gas prices, off of not stream to. so europe p and people are suffering under tensions with russia. but the question is why the european union follow the interest? so maybe there is another action strategize that are following which if we can new russia as a few political message opponents and the struggle for influence in duration yesterday in germany. but it states, you know, we don't want to say, but
11:10 am
a lot of people don't want to say, but if there's no solution, there is a great fear that there's a potential conflict here, right, on europe's you know, doorstep surely that slots in any body's interests. yeah, that's true and that's why i think the crisis should not be handled that lightly. and we should not only limit our focus on ukraine because we have been in contrast done recently, that instability can rise everywhere. and we have all to analyze the situation closely and seen that there were also, there was an influence on behalf of western partners to total a russia friendly government in carfax, and similar situation can evolve on different frontline around russia. and therefore the situation is very complex. and if in fact, it's a very dangerous and therefore i'm really glad that european union should take
11:11 am
offense for better relationship for more intensive diplomacy with russia. now, in the short term right now, the western allegation or focus seems to be, you know, it's russia, that's the aggressor. would it be in russia's interest? do you think to be true, true from its border with ukraine? what russia has done. so in the past several times when so you should be super signaled, but i think there needs to be some progress on behalf of the security offers off the west towards russia. otherwise, the russia would make its own policy incredible if it withdrew its troops right away. yeah, but it's, of course, an option that russia has in hands. also, russia depends on its international image, which is being spoiled now by western media outlets. and only russia being the
11:12 am
aggressor. and so for russia, it may be an important move to show that they are a reliable, responsible partner, that they are only defensive in terms of their troop movements. and at the time, at the same time they right. and you can make the same arguments about the west dom and ukraine should that stop? well, definitely this should stop because it's part of the escalation strategy which leads us into nowhere. the more weapons that are delivered. busy into ukraine, more also military consultants and experts that are stationed there at the greater becomes. ringback the potential for conflict. okay, right. and we're going to leave it that we for an active time. it's a big topic. we could talk about it a lot longer, but the clock speaking us. thank you. that was rain rockford, a g i political ama,
11:13 am
thanks for coming on. thank you. well ahead of the talks, the u. s. state department has outlined what it sites as examples of rushing disinformation in a report that presents its opinions as solid facts. it was published just a couple of hours before the talks today, rushes foreign minister was critical of both the content. and it's time it's you, my, you thought it was to present these documents, which the u. s. state department has of course prepare deliberately for today's meeting was more simply impossible to read the full. it's enough to scroll through a couple of random pages to be sure. none of the provision stand of any critical analysis would be in many cases, it is simply a lie. or if you cbs claims in the report is that nato's not encircling russia with its military base is it argues that the real problem is that russia is such a big country, is on the story. his moral gas death. while over the past 24 hours, washington has launch something of a of a p r offensive, or they,
11:14 am
they've come out. and they've said that virtually are all the security concerns that russia has talked and talked about for 10 years for even longer than a decade. that all of that ease ease fiction, they've come up with, with the least the various things that russia has said that russia feels uncomfortable about who concerned about and explain why those points shouldn't be taken seriously. fiction rushes, deployment of combat forces is a mirror position of troops on his own. territory fact deployed more than a $100000.00 russian troops, including battle hard uncovered forces and offensive weaponry. with no plausible innocuous explanation to the borders of a country that russia has previously invaded and still occupies in places, is no mere troop rotation. it is a clear renew to russia, threats to ukraine sovereignty in territorial integrity. there is, of course, no mention of the fact that the russian to build up happened concurrently with the
11:15 am
ukrainian to build up with the vase convoys of tags of artillery thesis, making their way towards the russian border towards easton ukraine and the conflict lines. the conflict lines there, and the gist of that statement, for example, is that the united states is concerned with the russian troops moving inside rush. whereas rushes concerned with troops from florida, from march, canada being sent half the world away, and stationed near russia. this is who you can understand where rushes coming from here, but there's a, there's a whole lot more where that came from. there are passages full of inhuman falls, heat, and stupidity. for example, they call fake moscow statement that the re positioning of russian trips and russian territory means repositioning of russian troops on russian territory. brilliant. what is there more hair lies or illiteracy?
11:16 am
i did not even want to deal with it. i know one thing for sure, this could only be published by the ministry of truth. similar situation would be, what her coming out and hysterically condemning a united states to build up in texas for example. there was, there were many other points such as another one, a fiction, or russian fiction is that nato is surrounding washer. and here they argue that, that no, it isn't. rush was a huge country with, with $1414.00 neighbors that a chairs, landlord, the women, and only fog, those a native states. well, if we look back 20 years, there was only one. then there were 3, then there were 5. and now with the essential potential ascension of, of george in ukraine in the future, i wrote about half of russia's, lambert, neighbors would be nato member states. so how can, how can you argue that nato isn't surrounding russia? would, but you have the numbers right there. there was also another,
11:17 am
another russian fiction, the new wouldn't promised russia that nater wouldn't expect the eastward. this is, this is an outright lie. this is an in c, i and state department than european archives that yes they did. it's, it's in writing and a cia archives, for example. then director of the cia director robert gates said the gorbachev's had been promised, had been led to believe that nathan wouldn't expect this. but you had the james bake of the state department, the head of the state department, secretary of state, back then a 3 times telling gorbachev's that they wouldn't move one inch eastward. you had a vendor of the then west german foreign minister has either ginger saying that nato shouldn't expand eastward, given assurances to russia. then the usaa saw that the in the event of germany re unifying that nato would movies. you have this in writing in rising lisa,
11:18 am
archived memos, cables. nevertheless, there's this, as i say, much more in that list of russian fictions which a lot of questions about or against the of their will. artie itself is also become the target of washington's accusations with the u. s. state department alleging that the channel and felonies outlet sputnik hughes disinformation to advance the kremlin foreign policy. we got reaction about those newly released reports from geo political analyst tango mcadams. it's classic us government, they always want to draw the stink bomb in advance of any kind him to go. she ations, it's just their way of putting up a middle finger. us accuses russia of invading countries and the fact that the u. s . invaded countries and there was not a single specific example of where our key got anything wrong. it's just that they don't like the flavor of it. they don't like any alternative voices being out there . they're accusing of the art of representing
11:19 am
a pro russia view as if the u. s. media, as you put it earlier in its entirety. the u. s. mainstream media represents the pro u. s. government, you not us, us government view. they have no clue that the vast majority of americans can't stand american foreign policy. and so what is their, what is their, what is their conclusion? well, should we change our policy? no, let's don't let them watch things that challenge their perspective. the challenge is their narratives. well, thanks for watching your evening and still as we speak to an alleged victim of church sex abuse, submitted pro, finding the form of pope benedict, the 16th failed to take action to stop the crime story of the bride. the
11:20 am
ah. a wrong one, i just don't want to ship out this day because an engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. ah,
11:21 am
welcome back. now a new report is claimed that former pope benedicts the 16th failed to take action in 4 cases of alleged sexual abuse while he was serving as archbishop of the german cities of munich and phrasing. while the study by german law firm looked into cases of abuse between 19452019 how church officials handled them. according to the report over 2 thirds of people investigated did turn out to be priests. the report also said the former pope supported this latest inquiry, but denied any wrong doing. we spoke with wilfrid at fessler man who says he was a victim of sex abuse by the clergy during that period. and he told us what he's been 3. that's why someone, it happened in the summer of 1979. i was 11 years old back then pastor act served
11:22 am
to st. andrews church and when he left s and groups of people started attacking me for the new. i was one of the reasons he left. we moved to another district of the town and in 1999. i began effective by my i could not work and then i have to drive or simply go out of the house if my whole family was suffering because of that, i started visiting doctors to find out what the problem was. finally, i got to see a therapist, i told him the whole story and he said i had been through a really traumatic experience in that triggered memories of all the abuse. i had experience hard when i saw the pastor immunity, he was standing among other pastor smiling. i told myself, listen paraphilias disease. so he'll most likely keep going. he did. well, it's not the 1st time that senior catholic clergyman have been under fire over alleged sexual abuse. numerous of the cases have been reported in other german cities and in ireland and france to wilfred at festival. and again says that after
11:23 am
a letter he sent to pope benedict that changed. so he changed punishment guidelines for clergy, guilty of sex offences, but says it's taken so long to happen when i'm feeling fine talking in 2006 in 2008, i sent an ottoman emails music diocese. i wrote about my experiences with pastor acts when he was enough and they ignored my letter in 2006. so i try it again in 2008 when abuse victims were demanded compensation for the 1st time. they then described my letter as criminal blackmail, but it's clear that i hadn't been blackmailing the church. those officials who came to me real life, i was the victim right away. they also realized they themselves had been used by the church. they were simply told by the members, 1st of all, concerned about justice because the pastor just went to another place when i was writing the letters to me to protect others and may 2010. i wrote to pope benedict . i told him my whole story on may 21st. i got a response saying the pope would take care of it and he really did. but as we have seen, it took 2530 years to open up. that one is not
11:24 am
4 and a half years after london's deadly grenville fire tragedy phase of a repeat have emerged among the public not submit plans to build a new high rise in the area with yet again, only one set of fire escape stairs for its residence. r t. shoddy stash. the has more details and the shadows of the grunfeld power. the tragedy that came the lives of 7 to 2 plans are in place to build a new skyscraper twice the high and just to see if nice away. despite the public inquiry concluding the safety policy also grunfeld, our sales, this new building is set to head to that sales policy, including the requirement for just a single escape staircase. we would, he knows that single staircase christine cases are difficult to use for fire fighting and escape at the same time. the whole situation is that the area becomes

11:26 am
regulations as a minimum and that local people are fully consulted. we are aware of this development and we will be providing a response to the planning consultation. while new homes can no longer be caught in combustible material like that, which caused flames to shoot up the grunfeld tower. the government is still yet to remove cladding from thousands of tara blocks in the u. k. and unlikely to do so before 2025. the survivors and the bereaved erecting another high rise building while lessons haven't been learned, is unforgivable. we still haven't finished with the inquiry full, so the proposal to be given or even new laws or recommendations or whatever it is, it's like is if we carry non profits before lives and that this can't happen, when will they ever learn the still nothing has been learned they say lightning doesn't strike twice, but is this really the place to build a tower and with crushed of all safety precautions as the community is still in

11:28 am
don't have lifetime friends or friends within their grade for a long time because they move. however, fairfax county school officials are defending the game, insisting that it does push students to challenge thoughts and sharpens their ability to analyze. but mr. chavo again warns the activity does hom youngsters and is part of a more disturbing trend across america. and bingo game does nothing but harm children because now they're looking at people based on the color of their skin or the job that their mother or their father did to me that kind of bingo creek, 8th discrimination. and it's also harmful to those kids as well. i want your viewers to think if you're a military child in that school and there are a lot of military children in that school and they read that privilege. how do they feel? you know, how they feel going home about this? we got to stop segregating people based on anything. so i think parents need to
