this if. we would is strictly. the business and. how would i define hollywood is a call to dream manufacture which i think's true i think equally it's a problem in the film. states not looking to kick off a cycle as collation in conflict with russia moscow slaps the u.s. with sanctions in retaliation for washington's imposing restrictions on russia just a bit earlier in the week. last. week on the rest of us state of minnesota where they're over the police killing of right shows no sign of peace. a c.n.n. director is secretly filmed admitting his spread propaganda despite having
a slogan claiming to be the most trusted name in. the timing is perfect for the weekly here when r.t. international for me rory sushi in the news team here a very warm welcome to me. this week marked another low point in the russian u.s. relations as both countries on leash sanctions on each other moscow expelled 10 u.s. diplomats from russia and the acting american ambassador to go 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 a matter of time and on friday russia very demonstrative retaliated against these punitive measures that washington now nst 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 bear responsibility for promoting americans and to 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 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 backdrop 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 you got 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 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 turn 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 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 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 shroom of receipts 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 normal . 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 to tear a sion and relations and it's tried everything it can to a point that at the moment it feels that that might be the only option left journalist and author daniel design believes the biden administration is behaving
without restraint in its current 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 can there is no charge that the by the ministration would want level against moscow biden has been absolutely unrestrained he is 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 this rampaging around with these charges and while unveiling the latest round of sanctions the u.s.
also decided claims made last year of russia or offering bounties to kill the taliban that is to kill american troops in afghanistan now the white house has admitted more than once it has very little to back up those claims but nevertheless it certainly is now looking for some sort of 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 sought 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 intelligence committee 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 that russian intelligence offer a taliban link to militants balancer used to kill american troops in afghanistan and 2019 the allegations were never proven and the protocol in itself said it could not even corroborate the reports that certainly did not stop the media from full on
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 the allegations with the foreign ministry branding them the speculations on the phobias of the u.s. intelligence community we called the take of a former 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 the size information as opposed to hard intelligence that 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 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 and follows last sunday's fatal shooting by police of dante right. right officers have been resorting to using tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the protesters.
brooklyn center police claim don't write died as a result of an accidental discharge after an officer mistook her gun for a taser or started out as peaceful protest and up and violent clashes with police the protests will also say that other cities including chicago dallas and portland where the police union building were set on fire the scenes are reminiscent of those in the wake of george floyd's death last year his death sparked huevos nationwide protests and we spoke with the radio host wayne dupree who served as
a board member on the national diversity coalition for donald trump says it's a vital to rebuild trust between police and the 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 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 about 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 of leadership leadership of people there everybody
can try 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 communities. social media giant twitter has banned the founder of investigative journalist group project very tough for alleged violations of its policies that comes after the group published yet another undercover sting video this time targeting c.n.n. and that of cnn's technical director. a strange disease a term like the engine heat like a people are getting attacked or is it just a culture that you need to try to protect patients. and certainly what. we're trying to like health like a b.l.m. like a day like this i mean it's individuals it's not a you know. that's like they're 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 a 3rd cover screw published by project farrah fawcett this week but more about the other revelations is ati's donald quarter. 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 the movie was received i don't know that
but again you are reading stories that we didn't know anything about. that's b.s. i think that you know 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 coin yeah i mean.
we did it right but it was. shaking or whatever and he 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. that i'm healthy you know by. him and you save years she. hated me as a. young. guy 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 nice and james o'keefe god bless him but how many exposé use must be produced before something's done things done and 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 a bull distrust with with vaccine and efficacy vaccine malpractise with this anyway and years nothing for them to build up. are you watching us here not to offer a very short break here on the program french lawmakers pasta controversial security bill ultimately you know lies in the spread of images of polluted offices one. that'll be in the mix of your top with the stories in just a moment we get one.
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confront case let it be an arms race. scary dramatic to follow only. exists i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. to believe that. information. will. be. nobody there for the seat. either. show. but. i agree let's start with this will be it will be
a solution but. it is good to have you with us today a controversial security bill has been passed by the french parliament it grants additional powers to law enforcement but has faced a widespread criticism for making it harder to call out police abuse more on the story now his aussies. 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 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 let's take a reminder 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 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 know 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 are off duty some have described this move as essentially making pros
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 and i think 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 that would be more consistent with the principle of human freedom the right to protest is our rights why spy 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 new 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 parliamentarians 75 visiting for its 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. the prostration of italian business owners boiled over this week entrepreneurs took to the streets to demand an exit from the covert lockdown saying they just can't afford to stay closed and the long clashes broke out at one protest in rome.
the rally was organized by the open movement which advocates for loosening lockdown restrictions on reopening businesses however it was also joined by a far right group whose members threw smoke bombs out police understand one protester was injured another arrested if lee has eased coverture restrictions in most regions often east to lock down but restaurants will remain closed at least till the end of april only take out all delivery services are currently. well pandemic concerns of a different kind of a most 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 an ocular added with that job of a safety fears that's led to an accumulation of some 100000 doses the authorities have tried encouraging locals to get vaccinated by scrapping the need for appointments well we asked sicilians for their point of 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. back at the ritz due to bad communication and one case in a 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 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 cross and combs 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 with high tech cameras and microphones the police department has touted big dogs as a way to keep officers out of harm's way but the reporting recruit doesn't seem to have gone down too well with new yorkers. listen to. listen. my guess is 60. 0. never seen i'm like that in my life to.
talk to the 2 of them. i think they're 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. you know i'm hungry and 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 though the robot is expensive it's not a human why they are you getting no money from where is this money coming from how much is it how much is a cost to spend a weekend training officers her a weekend on dinner protocols or you're having a tough time you're still in the p.
and demi there are a lot of families that need that money. neighborhoods we need here in new york city shouldn't be spent on lobo those. are just some of your weekly top stories here highlighted on our international running down the top stories of the day and of the week of course we are back at the top of the hour with more of your top story. the world is driven by a dream shaped by one person or there is. no
