way or are you being. what is true. is faith. in the world corrupted you need to descend. to join us in the. forum even the shallows. united states is not looking to kick off a cycle school nation in conflict with russia. moscow slaps the united states with sanctions in retaliation for washington imposing restrictions on russia early in the. the week of unrest in the u.s. state of minnesota where anger over the police killing of dawn tehran shows no sign of things. in the c.n.n. director secretly filmed admitting his channel spread propaganda that despite
6:01 am
having a slogan claiming to be the most trusted media outlets. either thanks so much for joining as you're watching the weekly here on r.t. . this week marked another low point in russia u.s. relations both countries unleashed sanctions on each other moscow expelled u.s. diplomats from the country and advised the acting american ambassador to return home. the latest attack on a country by dubai didn't ministration cannot. it seems that washington does not want to accept the fact that in the new geo political realities there is no place for unilateral dictatorship and the broken scenarios of containing moscow which the us short sightedly continues to deploy when you risk further degrading russia u.s. relations we knew that this was coming in one form or another it was just
6:02 am
a matter of time and on friday russia very demonstrative retaliated against those punitive measures that washington announced against moscow earlier this week perhaps the most interesting part is that 8 top level washington officials have been banned from entering russian territory we're talking the head of the f.b.i. the director of national intelligence the secretary of homeland security to i people who are powerful decision makers in washington also a lot less to susan rice and john bolton historically to politicians who are you know. russian rhetoric alongside the names moscow explained that these individuals have been chosen precisely because they all bear responsibility for promoting america's anti russian policy direction i have to say this is a really strong move because usually such bans are done on the low down in the quiet that are not announced publicly so clearly the kremlin here is so frustrated
6:03 am
by what's going on that it wants to make a really bold korea statement of not 10 american diplomats have been expelled a number of american organizations suspected of interfering in russia's internal affairs have been told that they need to stop their activity and it was also made clear that if the u.s. continues to behave this way the more can and will be done including reducing the diplomatic mission here to just $300.00 and taking action that would be harmful to u.s. business interests so very loud very extensive announcement leaving the door open for an improvement over. but at the same time being practical and preparing for the worst as you see it it comes not long after it was americans said they were going to do as regards what was said on thursday well you have to look at the fact up to this hostile undiplomatic rhetoric coming from the white house of course now the infamous into joe biden calling president putin a killer on international television and then this final blow out by joe biden
6:04 am
signing what can only be called a sanction spree so that package includes a $32.00 russian entities and individuals sanction for allegedly interference in last year's presidential election stateside a range of financial and technology firms targeted for power and cyber attacks on federal agencies 10 russian diplomats expelled borrowing money international made more difficult for russia to and why anyone reasonable would look at this and say well this is pretty extensive apparently joe biden claims that this was his take it easy on russia set of sanctions and that ultimately all he really wants is to be friendly and the pressure dial down united states is not looking to. school is she in conflict with russia we want a stable predictable relationship now is the time to deescalate well saying that after announcing a slew of sanctions is mixed messages it's illogical it's very confusing i mean
6:05 am
generally punishment and deescalation don't go hand in hand so you can see why the russian side pointed out that that moment there's a huge disconnect between what russia says rather what washington says and what washington does cool to refrain from escalation sound hypocritical in essence to trying to talk to us from a position of strength we have repeatedly warned and proved in practice that sanctions and other pressures are not only futile but will also result of disastrous consequences for those who decide on such provocations so clearly normalize. relations between the u.s. and russia are going to require a serious shift here but at the moment it does definitely sound that whilst moscow of course doesn't want it to terrorists and relations and it's tried everything it can to avoid that at the moment it feels that that might be the only option left of all in the lead of the united states the czech republic and saturday was expelling 18 russian diplomats blames russia for a huge i mean nation depot explosion in 2014 meanwhile police are looking for 2
6:06 am
male suspects using russian passports in connection with the explosion they are quite well known in front as they were previously accused the alleged poisoning of the script pals with in 28 parallel visited the czech republic at the time of the explosion moscow has vowed to respond to prague's expulsion of 18 diplomats. while unveiling the latest draft of sanctions the u.s. 'd also cited claims made last year of russia offering bounties to the taliban to kill u.s. troops in afghanistan now the white house admits it has very little to back up those claims but it is nevertheless demanding answers from the kremlin we felt the reports were enough of a cause of concern they assessed with low to moderate confidence as you alluded to that russian intelligence officers start to encourage taliban attacks against u.s. and coalition personnel in afghanistan so while there's a lot of moderate assessment of these reports we felt it was important for our
6:07 am
intelligence community to look into it this information really puts the burden on russia and the russian government to explain their engagement here last june it was reported russian intelligence offered taliban linked militants bounties to kill u.s. troops in afghanistan in 2019 delegations would have approved the pentagon itself said it could not corroborate reports didn't stop the media from embracing the story vladimir putin. is offering for the scalps of american soldiers in afghanistan now the european intelligence official called this callous shocking and reprehensible overnight president trump dismissed the intelligence denied being briefed on it as new reports emerged saying those payments did in fact lead to the death of americans or russia has rejected the allegations with the foreign ministry branding them the speculations and focus of the u.s. intelligence community we got to take a former u.s. marine corps intelligence officer scott ritter the mere fact that you have
6:08 am
politicians action on intelligence that has appeared on the front pages of the new york times those you right off the bat that it's not intelligence it's been it's clear sized information as opposed to hard intelligence look the united states and russia are adults they they they they sit at the big table they were big boys pants and their intelligence services do things against one another because that information normally we understand this is reality of the world but the united states right now is very defensive it's dealing with the changing world changing reality and the fact that russia refuses to play the game of being subservient to you know a dominant america and so this is a domestic political problem where intelligence is 0 and political objective as opposed to doing what it's supposed to do providing insight american decision makers about what ground truth in russia is. it's been
6:09 am
a week of angry unrest in the u.s. state of minnesota this follows last sunday's fatal shooting month police of dante wright riots offices have been resorting to the use of tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse protesters. that. broken sense of place claimed dante wright died as a result of an accidental discharge after an officer mistook a gun for a taser started out as peaceful protests and it up in looting and violent clashes
6:10 am
with police. there were protests seen in other cities to including chicago dallas and portland where the police union building was set on fire the same is reminiscent of those witnessed in the wake of george floyd's death last year that's why even nationwide protests a year ago radio has waned to pray who serves as a board member of the national diversity coalition but on the trump says it's vital to rebuild trust between police and mind our communities tensions are so diode to the left and right the people that are getting hurt or in the middle what's happening right now is not going to stop is going to get worse because the leadership around many places is weak there is a lack of trust on both sides of the aisle. and when i mean both sides are now there's a lack of trust with within the police community about what's going on within the minority community in then there's
6:11 am
a lack of trust within the minority community about what the police. they are doing because of what they see projected on our media every being there has to be a concerted effort from both sides of leadership leadership of people there everybody can trust to sit down and work out proven solutions and. take it all types of suggestions and try to work on something and bring the trust back between law enforcement and the community. social media age on twitter has banned the founder of investigative journalist group project veritas for alleged violations of his policies comes after the group published yet another undercover sting video involving c n n's technical director. a strain of his family's attorney like e.g. he'd like it. people are getting hacked or is it just a picture. of
6:12 am
a tech asian. someone. who was trying to like help like a b.l. every like day like i mean it's individuals it's not a you know. that's like that of the optics of i don't know that we can speak to the fact that this technical 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 the 3rd undercover scape published by project veritas this week with more on the other revelations is all teased own course. the most trusted name in news it's a title c.n.n. has long prided itself on maybe you buy it maybe you don't but what would you think
6:13 am
if the network admin did to deliberately spreading propaganda well apparently they did i do. believe that it was. i don't know that but again you are creating a story here we didn't know anything about it that's b.s. i think that he is the worst president we have ever seen but what president trump just said was undemocratic and false the president seems to think that dominating black people dominating peaceful protesters is law and order it's not he calls them thugs who's the thug here this guy is should not be president cnn's charlie chester's spilled the beans over a tender date he was enticed into by an undercover project veritas journalist and he claimed the channel long had a pre-determined agenda to get trump out of office one that flows from the top down
6:14 am
from none other than c.n.n. president jeff zucker himself naturally trying to make joe biden out to be a spring chicken was the other side of the anti trump propaganda calling yeah i mean. we did it right but. as. i have always shaking or whatever he brought in with so many medical people so i call tell a story that i think is all speculation you know you're shocked to hear john. mccain. you know why. he made you savior she. hated him as a. young man. that sounds a lot like election meddling something c.n.n. has pointed the finger at russia for time and time again leaning on unverifiable claims from u.s. intelligence and its reputation as evidence the. in last year's elections the network claimed that moscow was trying to hurt joe biden's chances by spreading
6:15 am
conspiracy theories about the now u.s. president i'm talking about russia attacking our election russia once again interfered in the race for the white house russia is indeed interfering in the 2020 election with that kind of a double standard it should come as no surprise that people's trust for c.n.n. is on the decline but we don't think that this is all the personal. makes this lawrence when you're caught red handed hiding the way you do business from your viewers that's one thing but accusing someone else for breaking the very rules you yourself were caught breaking well that's another it's a rinky dink 2 bit organization what do you want it c.n.n. that scared defense immunized from any responsibility because nobody takes them seriously and as far as project very callous and james o'keefe god bless him but how many exposé these must be produced before something's done things done
6:16 am
nothing jeff zucker still there everybody still there but let me explain something their ratings are plummeting who wants to watch c.n.n. if there's no trunk what do you do talk about what a great job biden is knowing what a great job camelot harris story i don't think so now me we can't believe what we're seeing and our country is in complete collapse with our borders being destroyed and being invaded daily with a sense of believe it will distrust with with vaccine and efficacy vaccine malpractise with this anyway and years nothing for them to build up. going out into the actual killing of after the break friends little bank is passing controversial security bill penalizing the spread of images of police officers in operation we'll bring you that and other stories in just over.
6:17 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic development the only thing i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. strongly believe that. information. will be. nobody. either. show. or
6:18 am
ships will drown but. i agree let's stop with no mall be it will be a solution but the best. controversial security bill has been passed by the french parliament to grants additional powers to law enforcement bodies but it is faced widespread criticism for making it harder to call on police abuse with more on the story his shala to ski. 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 chillingly squeaks as well concerned about elements contained in this global security bill now one of the most controversial elements was all to cool 24 we've discussed it many times and the feelings about this is that it would continue
6:19 am
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 does take a mind though over the protests against article 24. well the government said it was 3 writing that article completely but as it's been
6:20 am
posted a there are elements that still are being criticized by many article $24.00 in the bill that was posted a bipolar man terence still contains limits on who can and call and publish images all of 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 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 offices 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
6:21 am
are off duty some have described this move as essentially making throws a dysfunctioning 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 but i think security is as important as it is true but there are people who abuse it the harm is not for freedom itself people and not freedom to cause harm to the continent you need to think if there are other tools that would be more consistent with the principle of human freedom the right to protest is our right spying on people and it's not just about concern on the streets here in france by u.n. panel of experts also raise concerns about this nor saying that it was incompatible with international human rights. the bill could lead to significant violations of
6:22 am
human rights and fundamental freedoms in particular the right to privacy and the right to freedom of expression so despite those continuous cause to scrap this bill it has been imposed on thursday by parliamentarians 75 voting 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 francis constitutional court and it's that last decision will be made as to whether this bill will become . the frustration of italian business owners pulled over this week entrepreneurs took to the streets to demand an exit from the covert lockdown say they simply can't afford to stay closed any longer clashes broke out at a protest in rome. the

6:24 am
president 80 percent silly has refused to be inoculated with the job because of safety concerns and that's led to an accumulation of some 100000 unused doses the authorities of tried encouraging locals to be vaccinated by scrapping the need for appointments we are sicilians for that. i turned down the astra zeneca vaccine because i don't think it's safe there have been several suspicious cases in sicily and for that reason i preferred not to risk my health so it's apparent that the it's due to bad communication and one case in a 1000000 isn't a big deal. the result was the possibility of a narrow set of the virus is more dangerous than the vaccine i would prefer to get vaccinated. there have been many deaths we don't know if this is related to the vaccine or not we're all afraid at the moment i don't want to take the astra zeneca out how we wait for sputnik the. all the vaccines have. there is no time to waste
