secretly filmed making his. propaganda despite having a slogan claiming to be the most trusted media. for the top stories of the day and all of the week welcome to the weekly on r.t. international. well this me say this we did yet another low point in russia u.s. relations as both countries on leash sanctions on each other moscow expelled 10 u.s. diplomats from russia. the acting american ambassador to go. the latest attack on a country by divided 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 a matter of time and on friday russia very demonstrative retaliated against those punitive measures that washington ounce 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. this russian rhetoric alongside the names moscow explained that these individuals have been chosen precisely because they all 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 not announced publicly so clearly the kremlin here is so frustrated 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 what. they were going to do as regards sanctions 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 interview joe biden calling president putin the killer on international television and then this final blow out by joe biden signing what can only be called a sanction spree so that package includes a $32.00 russian and an individual sanction for allegedly interference in last year's presidential election stateside a range of financial and technology firms targeted for apparent 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 kick off the. school is she in conflict with russia we want
a stable predictable relationship 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 generally punishment and deescalation don't go hand in hand so you can see why the russian side pointed out that the moment there's a huge disconnect between what russia says or rather what washington says and what washington does cause from overseas 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 in 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 and care but at the moment it does definitely sound that while small scope course doesn't want it to terrorists and relations and it's tried everything it can to
a point that at the moment it feels like that might be the only option left journalist and author daniel the zomba leaves the by the administration is behaving without restraint in its moves against russia america's behavior is out of control i mean the bought the by demonstration is well spent the last 4 years accusing trump of being soft on russia and now it's what's got into office it is trying to show that it is going to be a confrontational and hostile as a possibly there is no charge that the by the ministration would want level against moscow i know it's been absolutely unrestrained he's determined to show that he's a tough guy tougher than than donald trump and so therefore he's being very aggressive with regard to both russia and and china and and there are no restraints that's that that's the amazing thing and the u.s. is just just rampaging around with these charges. well while unveiling the latest
raft of sanctions the u.s. also cited claims made last year or russia offering bounties to the taliban to kill american soldiers in afghanistan the white house made it has very little of back up those claims but is nevertheless demanding says 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 sought to encourage taliban attacks against u.s. and coalition personnel and afghanistan so while there's a lot of moderate assessment of these reports we felt it was important for our intelligence committee to look into it this information really puts the burden on russia and the russian government to explain their engagement here last year when it was reported that russian intelligence often linked militants bounties to kill american troops in afghanistan in 2019 the allegations were never proven and the pentagon itself said it could not corroborate the reports without certainly 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 russia has rejected all the allegations the foreign ministry branding them the speculations on phobias of the u.s. intelligence community and we got the take of a u.s. marine corps intelligence officer scott ritter. the mere fact that you have politicians action on intelligence that has appeared on the front pages of the new york times bill is you right off the bat and 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 wear big boy pants
and their intelligence services do things against one another because that information normally we understand this is the reality of the world but the united states right now is very defensive it's dealing with a 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 a 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 a week of angry unrest in the u.s. state of minnesota that follows last sunday's fatal shooting by police of dante wright a ride offices a figure sorting to 10 casts on a rubber bullets to disperse protesters.
brooklyn center police claimed right died as a result of an accidental discharge after an officer mistook her for a taser started out as peaceful protests and it is loosening up violent clashes with police a protest also seen in other cities including chicago dallas and portland where the police union building was set on fire and the scenes are reminiscent of those in the wake of george floyd's death last year his death sparked a wave of nationwide protests a year ago a radio host wayne du pree who served as
a board member of the national diversity coalition of donald trump says it's vital to rebuild trust between police and minority community. 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 and there's a lack of trust with within the police community about what's going on within the minority community in then there's a lack of trust within the minority community i'm out what the police. are doing because of what they see projected on our media every day there has to be a concerted effort from both sides and leadership leadership of people there everybody
can trust to sit down and work out proven solutions and and take our own types of suggestions and try to work on something and bring the trust back between law enforcement and the community. social media giant twitter has banned the founder of investigative journalist group project veritas for alleged violations of its policies comes after the group published yet another undercover sting video this time involving cnn's technical director. a strange disease eternally teaching hate like a people are getting sacked or is it just a picture that you need to try to protect patients. and someone who. will be trying to like help like a b.l. every like day like this i mean it's individuals it's not a you know. that's not there the optics of that and i'll get it for you 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 well this is the 3rd undercover scoop published by project veritas this week but more about other revelations has ati's donald caught. 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 if the network admin did to deliberately spreading propaganda well apparently they did i do you. believe that it was. i don't know that
but again you are creating a story here we didn't know anything about. 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 he claimed the channel long had a pre-determined agenda to get trump out of office one that flows from the top down 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 really we didn't like what was. shaking or whatever and we brought in like so many medical people so like all tell a story like this is all speculation you know you're shocked to hear john. mccain that i'm healthy you know buy. him a new aviator she. hated me as a. young. tree. that sounds a lot like election meddling something c.n.n. has pointed the finger at russia for time and time again blaming 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 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 attacks just. makes this worse 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's c.n.n. that scared defends immunised from any responsibility because nobody takes them seriously and as far as project very close and james o'keefe god bless him but how many exposé use must be produced before something's done things done 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 gaily with a sense of believe a bull distrust with with vaccine efficacy vaccine malpractise with this anyway and years nothing for them to build up. while watching on t.v. in. a very short break french lawmakers posit controversial security bill ultimately he lies in the spread of images of police officers are what bring about . many of the story isn't about stuff.
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. spearing dramatic development only personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. the world is driven by a dream shaped by one person. thinks. we are here to ask.
thanks for sharing your sunday with us here at c a controversial security bill has been passed by the french parliament and grants additional powers to law enforcement bodies but has faced widespread criticism for making it harder cold out police abuse is our correspondent our teams are shot at 2 points. 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 rewrite 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
posted a there are elements that still are being criticized by many article $24.00 in the bill that was posted a bipolar man terrance 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 protests 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 dysfunctioning democracy. 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 of self people and not freedom cause harm. done and 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 that we spy on people and it's not just about concern on the streets here in france i knew when 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 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 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 france's constitutional court and it says that last decision will be made as to whether this bill will become. the prostration of italian business owners boiled over this week on talk to the streets to demand an exit from the covert lockdown saying they can't afford to stay closed any longer and clashes broke out at one protest in rome.
the rally was organized by the eye opening movement which advocates for loosening restrictions on reopening businesses however it was also joined by a far right group whose members threw smoke bombs on police. one protester was injured another arrested italy has to cope with restrictions in most regions offer an easter lockdown but restaurants will remain closed at least until the end of april. delivery services. well pandemic concerns of a different kind of emotion on the italian island of sicily where locals are
showing a high level of distrust in the astra zeneca vaccine according to the region's president up to 80 percent of sicilians refuse to get inoculated with that job over safety fears and that's led to an accumulation of some 100001 used doses both ortiz of trying to get vaccinated by scrapping the need for appointments and we asked sicilians for their view. 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 one case in the 1000000 isn't a big deal. the result was the possibility of an error but if the virus is more dangerous than the vaccine i would prefer to get vaccinated that would 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 shot i'll probably wait
for sputnik the. all the vaccines have. there is no time to waste we have to get back to normality. the new york police department has splashed out 75000 bucks on a crime fighting robotic dog to the teeth of high tech cameras and microphones the police department has touted dogs as a way to keep officers out of harm's way where the robotic recruit doesn't seem to have gone down too well with new yorkers. this isn't. like a system. never
seen 9 like that in my life. to the zoo. i think they're creepy i think it's a wasted. money and i think it's ridiculous that i can't spend money on proper officer training things like officer. and rehab stuff like that i mean there's so many other things that are. so what is going to really do something is not going to be a casualty this robot even though the robot is expensive it's not a human right away were you getting no money from where's this money coming from how much is it how much is a cost to spend a weekend training officers for a weekend on better protocols or you're having
a tough time just an opinion demick there are a lot of families that need that money. neighborhoods we need here in new york city shouldn't be spent on. just some of the top stories for you this hour here on the weekly international thanks for sharing your sunday with us here in moscow we are back with more. look forward to talking to you all. should work for people. i really must obey the orders given by human beings except where such orders to conflict with the 1st law show your identification we should be very careful about artificial intelligence and the point is to trace.
the area with artificial intelligence will something that the. robot must protect its own existence as. psychiatric drugs are essential for millions of patients rather they want that pill that they hope will take care of their problem thoroughly and rapidly in the short term they really work the problem is in the long term they're mostly disastrous suddenly stopping a drug can cause withdrawal symptoms more serious than the condition that was meant to treat instead of the beneficial effects of these different medicines ending up to something wonderful very often. get up to something terrible.
trying to medicate life itself i just think i was and i was just scared i was a scared little girl i was 24 and like. the didn't have to be so complicated. so if someone wants to authorize a product in europe let's say. plan protection product dispersant we call this person at this company the applicant has to provide data that allows us as the risk assess those whether this product is safe or not and this information comes from the applicant and the studies that are commissioned by the applicant to allow us to assess the safety by the applicant obviously so it's the intellectual property of the epic and.
