8:09 pm
to quench your thirst point during. vian has found itself in some very hot water here in france being accused of everything is a lot of 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 found a liter of router i don't necessarily even say water i mean you're supposed to drink 2 meters a day but new mystery mind of a staple for human life was put on the 1st day of ramadan a festival with muslims for eating 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 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 busy but not any so if you can sing
8:10 pm
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 sense 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 means to we need to exult it is a long way off through here in paris people with the best food boy that allegation . for me know i saw the controversy i saw the to eat frankly i think it could be quincy adams in my opinion there was no bad intention and they deleted the tweet to avoid necessary control the c. but not at all because they felt guilty. for me it's not a slam a for b.
8:11 pm
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 islamophobia. him or madonna when i'm doing my ramadan i know we're starting 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 when. they were playing it over saying so what do you see paris. translators who helped western forces in afghanistan claim they will pay with their blood when u.s. and nato troops are pulled out of the country reported to happen by mid september
8:12 pm
a former afghan translator for the british army shared his concerns with r.t. . i think minister of defense under you can government as a whole are forgetting that interpreters were key assets off the the 18 year long combat military mission in afghanistan and leaving them behind and forgetting them is is putting them at risk afghanistan is a very dangerous on hostile land in central asia so the trip and the shadow of fear and insecurity that exists there will certainly affect the lives of those in depth artist who work for the british forces in afghanistan over the years the u.k. has let hundreds of interpreters who work for the british army settle in the country critics though say many ought to be eligible for the scheme are being denied that chance of a u.s. president joe biden announce the withdrawal by september the 11th of american and nato troops from afghanistan this week translators who helped them over the years
8:13 pm
fear they will be left to the mercy of the taliban militants who branded them traitors and legitimate targets as the year again says many workers have been left traumatized. i am regularly in touch with afghan and top those who are searching for the british army and there are similar 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 next to them so the situation is very risky for and with us in afghanistan analyst separate his government acts quickly on introduces an inclusive scheme that allows all interpreters to relocate to the u.k. the situation will not be resolved are part of the international. missions objective in afghanistan was to secure europe and american borders from the threat of terrorism so afghans who joined the international forces on the world doesn't tap with us alongside these forces they are actually the core to the ends of the
8:14 pm
safety and the security of europe and america leaving them behind is the north. more ality on and on human. the working off the international still ahead in the program bosco warns progress because the respond of the czech republic expelled 18 russian diplomats i mean intelligence officers from russia were involved in an avi initial explosion back in 2014 story and more coming up after the break. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race is on all sides very dramatic development only really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very
8:15 pm
critical time time to sit down and talk. i strongly believe that the information will united states and russia. control the. e-mail and nobody can afford the seat. either. shut down or ships will drown but. i agree let's stop with no mall be the it will be. the best.
8:16 pm
back to the program russia says the czech republic will face consequences after prague announced on saturday it was expelling 18 russian diplomats the czech republic is blaming russia for a huge i mean explosion in 2014. has the details. well it's been a tough week for diplomacy and more generally a period of increasing tensions 1st off on thursday we learned that the u.s. would be expelling 10 russian diplomats for a legit election interference then poland foist it support and sent back to moscow 3 russians now its neighbor the czech republic has followed suit. as foreign minister of the czech republic i took the decision to deport all the workers of the russian embassy in prague who were clearly identified by our secret service as members of the russian s.v.r. and g.r.u. intelligence services 18 russian embassy workers need to leave the czech republic in 48 hours or so check intelligence claims that has evidence of those 18 russians
8:17 pm
was somehow involved in the tragic explosion that happened on check for oil back in 2014 but that quote is a basin clear evidence obtained by our security services i must state that there is a reason to believe that russian officers belonging to unit 210055 of the g.r. unit from mission security service were involved in the explosion that occurred at another unit for bet it's in 20 for a team for our fellow citizens fathers of families were injured now just quickly that explosion claiming to lives took place at a military. is located around $331.00 to southeast of the capital prague now would support around 10000 kilograms of ammunition including medium range missiles were kept there for years at the course has remained unknown though one point of us was floated around that negligence at the site was to blame now though almost 7 years
8:18 pm
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 the share of the names might ring a bell indeed the british accuse these 2 of attempting to poison such a script and his tool to use in back in 2018 with the nerve agent not the child will 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
8:19 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 men minister said 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. geopolitical analyst for sun political commentators. calling the situation timing is interesting because. you don't want the. czech foreign
8:20 pm
minister young how much or was expected more to call he was expected to come here doing agree on the purchase or was. she in for a change here for the czech republic let me remind you of the president you will resent it. considered to be a also file. alben lee often expressed sympathy for the idea or by the russian big scene now of course the president has to you know be patriotic actual that the prime minister bobbish says that you know the president is behind him even though you know you martin explanations from russia on what happened i didn'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 as
8:21 pm
the suspects because they have already been presented they were already in the mind in the consciousness of public. due to the case and this case in itself has never been really. explained before such evidence has been presented in a 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 partners and russia and there is just the geopolitical rearmed which offers us really explain agents. or russia's federal security service as the tame 2 men who it's claimed the plotting a coup in belarus the plans are forcibly included a plot to assassinate the country's president that exile or shango or r.t.c.
8:22 pm
goes that i've talked to my colleague you know neal through the details of the story. 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 bed of roses well they planned to capture some of the strategic buildings symbolic buildings like the likely 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 butler russian 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 a whole stash of weapons discovered as well last year we spoke quite
8:23 pm
a bit on the program didn't the you were there in belarus as a crisis really unfolded for quite some time tell us a little bit more a by dull aspect and has it alleviated you know it well better 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 the 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 from 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 a lisander should go also so counter protests over alexander lukashenko supporters
8:24 pm
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 shango it just adds up to this whole story now that they're saying that there were opposition elements that planned an assassination. the f.b.i. has revealed it had previously interviewed the gunman behind this week's mass shooting at a fed ex office put us in march 2020 the suspects mother contacted law enforcement to report he might try to commit suicide by cop based on items observed in the
8:25 pm
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. the gunman 1st opened fire in the car park of the fed ex facility before entering the building killed 8 people were for turning the gun on himself but he said under fire the shooter was 19 year old brandon scott hole who was a former employee at the facility. but it's not the 1st time the f.b.i. has let people who'd go on to be mass killers and slip through the net so i went on sort of my off was interviewed 2 years before he and his brother killed 3 people in the 2030 bomb attack at the boston marathon obama team who murdered 49 people in orlando nightclub shooting and 2016 had been on 2 separate investigations though both were dropped and william acheson was interviewed by the bureau a year before he killed 2 people in the ask that high school shooting in 2017 we
8:26 pm
spoke to political activist and lawyer christian and said that they were thorough he should keep closer tabs on such individuals. 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 a little bit better and make sure that these people who are not like allegedly fit go on to commit these crimes as thing in law enforcement use the n.y.p.d.
8:27 pm
has splashed out $75000.00 on a crime fighting robotic dog it's on to the teeth with high tech cameras and law confines of the police department tuttle to daisy dog as a way to keep offices out of harm's way the robotic route though doesn't seem to have gone down too well with new yorkers. listening to. the sounds. like a sissy stand up to. 0 . never seen nothing like that in my life. oh how hard to be to hold on.
8:28 pm
i think that creepy i think it's a waste of money but i think it's ridiculous that i can't spend money on proper officer training and things like. rehab stuff like that i mean this summer you know the things that are. somewhat it's going to really do something it's not going to be casual to just be a robot even more a robot is expensive it's not a human why where were you getting the money from where is this money coming from how much is it just how much is a cost to spend the weekend training officers are weekend on better protocols or you're having a tough time just the end of the endemic there are a lot of families that need that money. neighborhoods we need it here in new york
