just days after. engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. russia stakes the harmony of the relations between the u.s. on moscow allies many of the board washington that comes off to america or else the expulsion of 10 russian diplomatic personnel get more sanctions more scope for the border demonstration election meddling. the u.s. president sets a symbolic deadline of september 11th for drawing all u.s. troops from afghanistan saying it's time they came home. also firmly put the burden
7:01 pm
on afghanistan's neighbors which people lost increasing. the french parliament passes a controversial security bill human rights groups fear it will threaten efforts through view police abuse. from moscow that's for joining us tonight you are not international. with you till morning welcome to the program. before and the russian foreign ministry says washington bears full responsibility for worsening relations between the countries of the white house said it was expanding diplomatic staff on imposing a wave of new sanctions moscow says it has no choice but to retaliate. but there again as you there but such aggressive behavior will undoubtedly meet firm resistance a response to the sanctions will be inevitable washington has to understand that
7:02 pm
there will be a price for the degradation of bilateral relations and it is the us that is entirely responsible for what is happening or meanwhile the russian foreign ministry summoned the u.s. ambassador in moscow for talks he was through washington sanctions will be met like for like any attempts to discourage that would be totally inappropriate earlier my colleagues under foreign jacqueline who got talked through the day's developments. as the russian reaction makes clear this latest move from the us represents a sharp hit to relations between the 2 countries and the measures being announced are quite extensive they came in the form of a 5 page executive order so what's in it let's take a look now 10 personnel from the russian diplomatic mission in washington d.c. are to be expelled and the biden administration said that that includes representatives of russian intelligence services giving them details as to what exactly that means 32 and cities and individuals or sanctioned for quote carrying out russian government directed attempts to influence the 2020 us presidential
7:03 pm
election comes as no surprise that that was also within the document apart from that the u.s. treasury will also be targeting a number of russian financial institutes and a 6 russian technology companies have been designated saying that they provided support to russian intelligence services allegedly facilitating malicious cyber attacks now with all that in mind the white house seems to be taking a rather paradoxical approach to russia relations with russia as in the statement outlining all of these measures they started off with a call for stable relations with moscow the biden administration has been clear that the united states desires a relationship with russia that is stable and predictable we don't think that we need to continue on a negative trajectory however we have also been clear publicly and privately that we will defend our national interests and impose costs for russian government actions that seek to harm us this is not the 1st time we've heard certain
7:04 pm
sentiments coming from the biden an instruction like that but then they hit moscow with the sanctions and other measures and they've also now officially laid the blame for the solar wind cyber attack at the feet of russian intelligence for a little background on that last year a piece of software called solar winds was hit with a cyber attack and those behind it gain access to digital files of so. well u.s. government agencies including the treasury the justice and state departments it was a huge deal at the time the u.s. said that they suspected that moscow was behind the attack but investigations were still going on but now the finger of blame is being firmly pointed out russia but again with this caveat that the u.s. has high confidence quote unquote in the assessment that russia is to blame but no concrete evidence has been put forward and russia has all this time of course denied any involvement whatsoever in this isn't it shop change in tone that we've heard from america over the last couple of days because you know if you going back
7:05 pm
to then the walls talk of a summit between america and russia well exactly just 2 days ago on tuesday biden and putin spoke by phone or biden once again said that his goal was to build a stable and predictable relationship with russia and at the time he also proposed a summit between the 2 leaders to take place and a 3rd country and the biden administration has said that that summit that meeting is vital to stop the excess escalation of tensions between the 2 powers but the russian foreign ministry says that he sees actions speak a whole lot louder than those sort of words joe biden was joe biden said he's interested in the normalization of russia u.s. relations but the actions of his administration show us the opposite the u.s. is not ready to deal with the reality of the multiple world which shots at the possibility of american has your money instead they count on sanctions and interference in our internal affairs so at this point russia says that they are
7:06 pm
going to react to these measures coming from the u.s. and the white house in turn says they reserve the right to react to russia's reaction while adding and here's the kicker that it would be best if everyone restrain themselves from escalating the situation any further. and ethical analyst chris bambery believes sanctions are the least efficient way to resolve the current issues between moscow and washington if you recall when donald trump was 1st elected he was adamant he was going to improve a relationship with with putin and with moscow but a majority opinion in the white sows the united states military united states security and american elites in general is in favor of this hard line of encouraging a new cold war so unified in was being our friend which was cheated in suggesting talks the majority of the american people who matter in the united states the people rule the united states are insistent on this cold war agenda with russia does seem that biden agree to have this summit and we seem to be you know looking
7:07 pm
towards some sort of solution particularly towards the build up military buildup at least create as no tick in this harder stance which trying to help the process of trying to resolve matters it is to train and cannot help improve relations to moscow washington and other western powers the. taliban is warning that problems will be compounded if the u.s. and allied forces fail to withdraw from afghanistan before the may 1st deadline struck last year this comes as joe biden out this week that all u.s. and nato troops will be finally pulled out by mid september they may have been there for too long he's also called on regional powers to offer more support to afghanistan as america depart you know correspondent where i've got their spin looking at the announcements and their own if occasion. joe biden says this is it the end of the afghan war no more extentions apart from well these last one until
7:08 pm
september we cannot continue the cycle of extending or expanding our military presence in afghanistan hoping to create ideal conditions for the drawn and expecting a different result according to the deal struck between trump and the taliban america was supposed to be gone in a couple of weeks time by may 1st but the president the new president claimed that didn't give him enough time the new date is symbolically september 11th and the thousands of u.s. and nato troops on that date will have left in light of this and recognizing that there is no military solution to the challenges of ganesan face says analysts have determined that we will start their withdrawal of the residents are told mission full says by may fast new d.n.a. 2 wants to be in afghanistan nobody but they went to do a job to make sure that al qaida and its ilk never make it home again and the only
7:09 pm
thing worse than staying in afghanistan is leaving before that job is done which has the potential to cost 20 years of war and bloodshed and effort to the win over common goal it's clear afghanistan should never again service a haven for terrorists to attack our whole nouns so presence is conditions based. well you know our ally wants to stay in afghanistan longer than necessary we will not leave before the ton is right it's the us government itself is divided and i'm on a to germany for example which previously opposed the withdrawal czech republic came out and said that this is the wrong decision but that they'll pull out in solidarity leaving behind de vos dangerous and uncertain but our vacuum the war isn't over almost 2000 people have been killed in afghanistan in the 1st 3
7:10 pm
months of this year but now that's a problem for others it will ask other countries of the countries in the region to do more to support of canisters especially pakistan as well as russia china india in turkey. you know i have a significant stake in the stable future for afghanistan under stab at the taliban now is believed to be more powerful than any point in 20 years they control a contest more than half the country and that's with thousands of nato troops keeping them at bay with those foreign troops gone what's to stop them taking law but siege in kabul and doing decades of humanitarian and human rights progress would they still feel obligated to root out hardline terrorists. which the us never came here for the benefit of afghanistan no one was happy with the us coming here and i don't think many people will be sad to see them leave the us came
7:11 pm
to afghanistan for its own interests and that includes nato and all other foreign troops which are under the orders of washington when the us came in 2001 they vowed to deliver peace in afghanistan but they failed we can never trust american promises i guess if the us soldiers leave afghanistan i think the situation will become worse because our country's security forces are not equipped well enough to fight against the taliban who have had the weaponry the us promised many times in recent years about withdrawing its troops but nothing happened we help for peace let's see what will happen. as you know the us came to ensure security in afghanistan and as you know the situation has become worse day by day conflicts increased and now the americans are leaving i don't think the americans want afghanistan to prosper they're just seeking a way to flee from the mess they made and they are thinking about the afghan people right now as i mean i think it could be good if we get peace the afghan people want
7:12 pm
peace it's a good idea that america leaves of ghana stand we the afghan people are tired of war the taliban are also angry they feel cheated again by this withdrawal deal a already field commanders are promising nightmare for foreign troops until they pull out. and on that note the american and european taxpayers who lost trillions of dollars on this war i left to hope for the best seat no guarantees no clear progress the result of the afghan war is that everyone's been left to hoop for the best. c.n.n. has long brought itself on being the most trusted name in news but that promise is once again under the scrutiny after c.n.n. technical director was recorded in a sting operation explaining that the network covered the black lives matter movement in a favorable way. but surely these. people
7:13 pm
are getting. the approach. to protect. someone. like hell to be able to make it like i mean it's individuals it's not you know. that's not really the optics of the. earlier this week investigative journalist group project veritas published 2 other parts of their undercover operation in which c.n.n. executives shaadi admitted that the outlets had a pre-determined agenda to get donald trump out of office and it had played up the covert 19 death toll to secure ratings auntie contacted c.n.n. for comment on the revelations will bring them as soon as we receive a response give us news room executive director at project veritas that it's time people started asking questions. we can speak to the fact that this technical
7:14 pm
director charlie chester he was certainly part of the culture he was speaking as if they were an advocacy group and this is a network that uses the tagline the most trusted name in news does the most trusted name in news you know colluded directly or indirectly with black lives matter that's a question for the american public to ask it seems that the rules that as a society that we all thought were in place are no longer in place there is no more roebuck this is you know this is concerning this is something that the american people should be looking into this is something they should be studying and this is something that they should know about because anything this big that means people make value decisions that affect their lives every day based on the news and if you're telling them you're real and in you know we're off hours you're saying that you're completely fake your propaganda that needs to be investigated that needs to be looked at further. a controversial security bill has been passed by the french parliament that grants additional powers to the law enforcement bodies but as fight
7:15 pm
the widespread criticism for making it harder to cool out police abuse is ots shot at who can skew. there was rounded criticism of this bill when it was presented a year ago not just from the left from human rights organizations and also journalists who says well concerned about elements contained in this global security bill now one of the most controversial elements was oh it's a cool 24 we've discussed it many times and the feelings about this is that it would continue issues in the ability of the press to do their job when it came to distributing images of police offices as a result of that controversy and the widespread protests we saw here in france the government said it was going to completely revise this particular article the sticker mind though over the protests against article 24.
7:16 pm
well the government said it was 3 writing that are to cool completely but as it's been posted a there are elements still of being criticized by many article $24.00 in the bill that was posted a bipolar menteri and still contains limits on who can call and publish images over the police if they use images of publish with an intent to harm physically or mentally one of those offices on the cheek if somebody is found guilty of doing that they would then face a fine of 75000 euros or up to 5 years in jail so
7:17 pm
a pretty severe penalty for that but it wasn't just. article 24 that caused concern this no as it's been passed now gives police officers the right to film interventions that they make it is allows them to regulate the use of drones for the police to be able to monitor a protest potentially and it allows officers to carry their weapons even when they are off duty some have described this move as essentially making throws a dysfunctional democracy. but in simple terms this law will significantly restrict freedoms the use of drones during protests and things like that this is a disaster for democracy and freedom. security is as important as freedom it is true but there are people who abuse it the harm is not for freedom with self people and not freedom cause harm. you need to think if there are other tools
7:18 pm
that would be more consistent with the principle of human freedom the right to protest is a right why spy on people and it's not just about concern on the streets here in france i knew when panel of experts also raised concerns about this nor saying that it was incompatible with international human rights. the bill could lead to significant violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms in particular the right to privacy and the right to freedom of expression so despite those continuous calls to scrap this bill it has been imposed on thursday by parliament ariens 75 visiting for it 33 against it but human rights organizations say this isn't the end they say that they will continue to challenge this law when it now goes to france's constitutional court and it says that that last decision will be made as to whether this bill will become new. that i had protests.
7:19 pm
germany's hard court rules that a red cap on property in the capital was unconstitutional we hear from our correspondents on the ground. just like freeze dried water just add water. and then. it's hard just. here's a child confer $100000.00 all you need is the ark to go with it but you've got the tank and just you don't have the artist at heart it's freeze dried are. bought it's freeze dried. it's freeze dried money it's it's sold as if it's something in a can they just need to know what it is that the says of this.
7:20 pm
world is driven by a dream shaped by. the dairy thinks. we dared to ask. the program. right in the german capital after the constitutional court overturned . rule the law has been one of the most debated in the country in recent years it had frozen rent payments at 2900 levels for 5 years and people up furious about
7:21 pm
that. it all started very peacefully here it ended with some people being taken away by the police in some small clashes between protesters and police offices here in 'd this old started following a ruling in germany's constitutional court that made a boy eat a red cap that was put in place last february by the senate the the government of the state of 'd this frozen rental costs 2019 prices it was done because of the rises in rental costs here in the german capital they call hope i
7:22 pm
around a 3rd between 20152019 people were saying that it was just becoming on the foldable to live in the city and people being priced out of certain areas the opposite side of the landlords the rental companies would say that the state has no place to meddle in the market they also say that putting in place rental comps would stop new apartments from being built what actually was decided in the constitutional court had nothing to do with the actual ins and outs of rental power they actually ruled on whether the city of and how the jurisdiction to put it in place at all in the 1st place they ruled the things to do with rent like they were actually for the federal law and said germany has a lot to deal with already and this state law couldn't seem to see that it's worth pointing out that actual piece of federal legislation here in germany covering rent's dates back around 120 years so it hasn't really taken into account. of
7:23 pm
course the recent influx of people who are seen coming into berlijn and rental prices i talked about what this could mean is some quite nasty bills arriving through the doors of around 1500000 households it's 90 percent of the residences in berlin that will be affected by this what the ruling says is that landlords could claim back in a really is for the rent that they say they would have been by having rents camped like this now some rental companies have said they're not going to ask for that money back but others have said that they will do that which surely is not going to go down well with a lot of people because this coupled with the pandemic coupled with people having lost jobs is seeing quite a lot of economic impact here in 'd moore through thousands of people it's quite hard to put an exact figure on it people were overall very peaceful it was very loud people were told to bring along pots and pans to buy and when there were
7:24 pm
clashes though they did a little nasty very quickly but overall a very peaceful meeting but this isn't over yet still is going to see rental rises it would seem there's also some contracts that have been signed since this came into place that have what is being called shadow rent shadow clauses in there whereby those rents could now skyrocket following 'd this ruling by the constitutional court what they say is needed is a ruling on a federal level whether they'll get bad or not not for sure. council culture appears to have struck again the recent talk by a conservative group at the university of northern colorado was disrupted by acting with many of whom were part of the black club samantha movement according to university officials the event was shut down because a violation is with the school's policy but those behind the 2 say there were clear double standards as officials allowed protesters to get rowdy and one step away
7:25 pm
from being violent well here we can see the campaign is making noise and disrupting proceedings servitors will who has to speak of the event gave us his take on what happened. they don't want to have conservatives come and speak on their campuses because they know that if the students here will know it's messenger greater usenets is that maybe they'll turn against the agenda at the university and they don't want that you want there to be open discourse you want there to be people on the left and people in the right people to have conversation to come together and find out the best ideas but the far left in america doesn't want that at all if you have a difference of opinion in them and they want to shut you down they don't want to hear your side of the story all they want is to ostracize you to destroy you to shame you for your beliefs and so it's not like those protesters new ones going to take my mascot and that's why they were crazy they went crazy because i had a different point of view and people were thugs they were acting like the odds and it was a terrible display on their part as the far left. now it's a big day for russian science with a cancer specialist from moscow becoming the 1st ever russian to be officially made
7:26 pm
a member of the prestigious american association you go to cut cough is car in moscow's leading on college it is a pioneer of keyhole surgery for cancer treatment in the country during his 30 year long career that we're now a doctor has published pretty astonishing 7 major studies and almost $300.00 papers russian historian martin mccauley says the news is particularly significant given the current political climate. they talk russian specialists are among the best in the world and if i could was a same in the soviet union talks so be it doctors and specialists were among the best in the world russian specialists have always had this high reputation and now this is no mostly important it's prestigious because he's the 1st russian even admitted to this not important surgical association but also at a time of an almost tension between russia and the united states should prove that
7:27 pm
if you put politics aside when you go to medicine or science or literature or anything else there's really caught a lot of common ground between russia and the united states they can come together and you don't have the conflict you have in politics and indefensible it has. up next thought iraq presents the price of progress exploring the key debates about the future of the global food industry for u.s. viewers it's reductive tonight's we're back and often our what us again that. it's been decades since the fall of spain's fascist regime but old wounds still haven't healed. in the times when you and. me from europe to you or me coffee to market economies or bowl to me on the bus at us is mean older than us and the same question which we know sells ins of newborn babies were torn from
