6:06 pm
a lot of your having seen it a designated how when instructed to do you center when the police came to the door they said they do not need the water to construe my whole came through the address on the rest of me on the wrong name for a start which is absolutely ridiculous how police can come for us all without a warrant probably going to arrest me on the wrong name. it's just you know it's absolutely above and beyond all to the tame me when i was 2 days into i sleep in a home with a stipulated that will be on the passenger locator form how does it make any sense that take me out and bottom lines and then keep me is basically a glorified there's no i left this crunch in the 1st place because of the the u.k. government failed the people and i'll terribly the on the the situation a little background on this story mr owens had flown back from bahrain transiting through abu dhabi in frankfurt before ending his journey in manchester abu dhabi is in the united arab emirates which is on the u.k.'s red list to prevent new covert trains being brought into the country the government has ruled anyone returning
6:07 pm
from a red list country having to quarantine for 10 days in a designated hotel on arrival and pay almost 2000 pounds for the privilege mr owens believes the arbor of the quarantine conditions are not as safe as you might think . you're treated like a. lot like an animal almost you get your meals delivered every day when the not on the door and then they just leave your food on the floor for you to open the door and just be you know pick your food up off the floor the big thing for me is the big cautions on taken you know extreme measures were put in place to detain me in the video and bring me here so out expect that to be matched by age scene precautions taken and the not the g 4 s. stuff that i've got the contract for this for these kinds of hotels the only p.p. the wit is a must have got pictures of some of them not even when the droplets open if the nose and i've even got pictures of ones i haven't even got over the mouth in my case in particular literally stuff or to not be dobby i'm still an international
6:08 pm
grounds i haven't gained immigration of literally just been transferred through on top of everyone's got to produce a negative test to be a not import no one could just walk into an airport you've got to go for the bits to get even in front of it i have to produce my boarding pass on my passion to locate the form which i'll be isolating the whole call the consulate i'm going through the procedure to try and get the bush record of the device but ultimately i was told anyway i'm on just the boards advice or not the onus is on the shop less so if that's the case then obviously so be it but the events that happened off that are just you know it's ludicrous. the mineral water brand evian has made a splash over a tweet encouraging people to drink more water pretty innocuous stuff the issue being about the post that we are very on the 1st day of the islamic holiday of ramadan when eating and drinking periods are limited now the french company is apologize for the ad the timing in particular that led to further criticism with
6:09 pm
many accusing it of bowing to walk pressure charlotte devinsky has the story. do you really me this is perhaps nothing more than a. something to quench your thirst with the ground everyone has found itself in some very hot water here in france being accused of everything is a little a phobia to being a victim of intellectual terrorism and it started with a tweet it seems and this isn't enough rowing to retreat if you handily to a group i don't necessarily even say water i mean you are supposed to drink 2 meters a day but new mr mind of a staple for human life was put on the 1st day of ramadan a festival with muslims for eating and drinking during daylight hours the reaction king week unfolds sed. i have to explain to my mother how it is normal for everyone to tweet about water even during ramadan because she thinks they are
6:10 pm
islamophobia you know it's ramadan you're abusing if you issued an apology coming to coors in the offense and saying that the purest most common disease but got any so if you can sing king even deeper into culture lucy. i would never buy evian again inadmissible to apologize it's basically a cool health message and yet you have to apologize if in 2021 ask you who drinks what i since provoke you should have a consultation. every umbrella under attack for advertising water on ramadan day for some islamists muslim festival should be imposed on everyone well no let's stop this madness soon was a mean streak to exult it is a long way off through here in paris people with the best food boy that allegation . for me no i saw the controversy i saw the to eat frankly i think it could be
6:11 pm
quincy adams in my opinion there was no bad intention and they deleted the tweet to avoid unnecessary control the sea but not at all because they felt guilty. for me it's not a slam a phobic i don't understand it like that for me would denigrate a strong one who say look at her she still veiled for me that's a slum a full dig. him or madonna when i'm doing my ramadan i know west starts in the morning and it goes on until the evening i don't eat i don't drink it has nothing to do with business or anyone else if someone tweets like this i don't care what many muslims also took to twitter to say that they didn't think that tweet by everyone was. leading so to question the way that any muslim had indeed been left insulted by evian or if somehow this whole story was the result of a real being and playing it rather see so much the risky 40 paris. afghan translators who help western forces in
6:12 pm
afghanistan claim they will pay with their blood when u.s. and nato troops are pulled out of the country purported to happen by mid september a former afghan translator for the british army shared his thoughts with r.t. . i think the ministry of defense on the u.k. government as a whole are forgetting that went up with this or key assets off the the 18 year long military mission in afghanistan and leaving them behind and forgetting them is this putting them at that risk afghanistan is a very dangerous on hall so i land in central asia so the trip and the shadow affair and security that exists there was certainly affect the lives of those in depth of us who work for the british forces in afghanistan over the years do you care that hundreds of interpreters who work for the british army settle in britain
6:13 pm
but critics say many who ought to be eligible for the scheme are being denied the chance u.s. president joe biden and months the withdrawal by september 11th all of american and nato troops from afghanistan this week on translators who help them over the years figure they will be left to the mercy of taliban militants who rounded them traitors and legitimate targets. and again say as many workers have been left from . i am regularly in touch with afghan and top with us who are searching for the british army and there are serious like in afghanistan and they are not aware of their future they are living in trauma unfair every day not knowing what could happen tomorrow or the next day to them so the situation is very risky for and with us in afghanistan analysts separate us government acts quickly on introduces an inclusive scheme that allows all interpreters to relocate to the u.k.
6:14 pm
the situation will not be resolved are part of the international. missions objective in afghanistan was to secure europe on american borders from the threat of terrorism so afghans who joined the international forces on a world 1000 tap without us alongside these forces they are actually the core to the ends of the safety and the security of europe and america leaving them behind is the north's way off more ality on and on human. you with r.t. still ahead in the program moscow warns prague it will be forced to respond after the czech republic expelled 18 russian diplomats claiming that intelligence officers from russia were involved in an unconditional jet blue explosion back in 24 dean that story and more for you coming up.

max kaiser financial survival guide liquid those that you can convert as quite easily. to keep in mind though as it's
6:16 pm
a place. for. 60 minutes into the program welcome back russia say the czech republic will face consequences after pride announced on saturday it was expelling 18 russian diplomats the czech republic is blaming russia for a huge i mean the devil explosion in 2014 with more and. well it's been a tough week for diplomacy and more generally a period of increasing tensions 1st off. that the u.s. would be expelling 10 russian diplomats for alleged election interference then poland for sport and sent back to moscow 3 russians now its neighbor the czech
6:17 pm
republic has followed suit. 18 russian diplomats to leave check soil within 48 hours the czech republic will expel 18 employees of the russian embassy there is a reasonable suspicion of the involvement of officers of the russian secret service the g.r.u. in the explosions at the ammunition depot. so check intelligence claims that has evidence of those 18 russians was somehow involved in the tragic explosion that happened on checks in 2014 now just quickly that explosion claiming to lives took place at a military ammunitions. is located around $330.00 climb to southeast of the capital prague now would support around 10000 kilograms of ammunition including medium range missiles were kept for years at the corps has remained unknown though one point a version was floated around that negligence at the site was to blame now though
6:18 pm
almost 7 years on the czech republic has apparently determined that moscow is behind it why it's taken so long to reach that conclusion or indeed the fact that the investigation is still technically ongoing was not something that was touched upon in that announcement what's made the story even more in tangled you could say and this is the part that the media has really seized upon is that right after that expulsion was announced a photo was put out of 2 russian nationals and i'm told about alexander petrov on the share of the names might ring a bell indeed the british accuse these 2 of attempting to poison sucky script and his tool to use in fact. 2018 with the nerve agent never talk we'll of course remember that this caused a diplomatic firestorm as well as a media frenzy now the connection between these 2 men and the 2014 explosion czech republic has not been made or at least it's not been stated publicly but we do know
6:19 pm
that the police are actively looking for them and they say that they were spotted in czech territory in the days leading up to the event as for where this might lead to while the czech interior minister said that sadly this will damage bilateral ties he also said that the country now finds itself in a similar position to that of the u.k. following the script case as the moscow house of want of consequences it's clearly increasingly frustrated by recent events there are a number of unanswered questions unclear moments in the story that might be explained in the coming days but like i said really this is been a week where day by day diplomacy has been put under more and more strain interesting with the story do political analysts run a rough for some political analyst dmitri babich both give us their take on the situation. the timing is interesting because just you know in one day
6:20 pm
that chance foreign minister yan how much echo was expected in moscow he was expected to come here to agree on the purchase of a. vaccine for. the czech republic let me remind you of that czech president meal resentment is considered to be also file and openly all but the expressed sympathy for india or by the russian big scene now of course the president has to. be patriotic so that the prime minister bobby says that you know the president is behind him even you know demanding explanations from russia on what happened i don't see this evidence it has not been presented really to us so what i can assume is that it also is just handy to present them. suspects because they have
6:21 pm
already been presented they were already in the mind in the consciousness of public . due to the case and this group case in itself has never been really. explained before such evidence has been presented in the convincingly way we have to assume that we are dealing with yet another diplomatic crisis between the western european and also america of course indirectly involved partner and russia and there is just the geopolitical real which offers a real explanation. russia's federal security service has detained 2 men who it claimed were plotting a coup in belarus the plans reportedly included
6:22 pm
a plot to assassinate the country's president oleksandr lucas shanker earlier our t.v. critic done of talk me through the details. essentially what we know from the russian federal security service or the f.s.b. they have detained 2 men one is a better russian another one has dual citizenship of belarus and the united states so they were plotting a coup in better routes they planned on the 9th of may it's victory day a very big celebration here in russia and in better roses well they planned to capture some of the strategic buildings symbolic buildings like the like the t.v. station the radio station they plan to capture alexander lukashenko and his son potentially even assassinating him this is the information from the belorussian president himself these 2 people arrested in russia detained in russia they are believed to be the ringleaders of the whole operation but they weren't acting alone there was a group and which was detained which had been detained and apparently there was
6:23 pm
a whole stash of weapons discovered as well last year we spoke quite a bit on the program did in the you were there in belarus as a crisis really unfolded for quite some time tell us a little bit more a dull aspect and has it alleviated well bill roses still recovering from that crisis because basically what happened after the presidential elections last year which alexander lukashenko the world according to official statistics he wanted by a landslide but a lot of people a lot of people in belarus they did not believe they were they said they accused the leader of the president of belarus for fraud and they took to the streets there were mass protests and initially they were met with the with with a very harsh police response with police police was accused of brutalizing civilians as we were working in belarus we saw tens of thousands of people at least take to the streets protesting and demanding
6:24 pm
a lisander should go also so counter protests over alexander lukashenko supporters who agreed. with the results of the elections and will said that the country should come down and everything should be resolved peacefully and through world through legal procedures so now this whole anti-government protest and better was has been reduced to as it has been localized essentially it has been reduced to people like waving opposition flags out of their windows and law enforcement coming and tearing those flags down and this announcement by the security services of russia and of and by xander look at shanteau it just adds up to this whole story now that there is saying that there were opposition elements that planned an assassination. the f.b.i. has revealed its heard previously interviewed the gunman behind this week's and last shooting at a fed ex office in indianapolis in march 2020 the suspects mother contacted law
6:25 pm
enforcement to report he might try to commit suicide by cop based on items observed in the suspects bedroom at that time he was interviewed by the f.b.i. in april 2020 no racially motivated violent extremism ideology was identified during the course of the assessment and no criminal violation was found. big gunman 1st opened fire in the car park of the fed ex facility before entering the building he killed 8 people before turning the gun on himself police identified the shooter as 19 year old brandon scott who was a former employee at the facility well it is not the 1st time the f.b.i. has let people who go on to be muscular slipped through the net. was interviewed 2 years before he and his brother killed 3 people in the 2013 bomb attack at the boston more than a teen who murdered 49 people excuse me in an orlando nightclub shooting in 2016 have been on 2 separate investigations although both were dropped. and was investigated by the bureau
6:26 pm
a year before he killed 2 people in the tech high school shooting in 2017 we spoke to political activist lawyer christian month and sees the authorities really should keep closer tabs on these video vigils. i think we must put more pressure on officials and authorities especially in the f.b.i. to to not let go of these individuals and if they are to be let go there has to be some very strict monitoring because we cannot allow these things to continue to happen there is a clear issue with psychologically disturbed individuals who have access to weapons people know they are psychologically disturbed the f.b.i. knows there are psychologically disturbed and yet they're left unchecked and then they go on to commit these crimes i think there has to be some accountability on the part of the government of federal agencies to do their job
