the quantity of us medicine obviously has reigned raised a number of concerns most of these drugs contain substances that been banned by wada but open watchdog argues they can enhance an athlete's performance by expanding lung capacity the norwegian anti-doping agency itself has admitted that the country has a problem with the over use of us medication it is common practice in norway to occasionally use as a medicine in major elements in the respiratory system even where the diagnosis is vastly is not specific. or the latest revelation comes following the release of a documentary that alleges the existence of an organized doping system at norway's ski federation we spoke to one of the journalists who was behind that film the ski federation is very angry about it and they don't want to talk about this problem and that's very sad in the region it's more. than
9:31 pm
a ski federation doping program we can see that forty one percent of the middle east have normal blood it means i don't think this is clean competitions we will see there are skiers doping also in this competitions we've asked the international olympic committee whether it will investigate these doping allegations we are awaiting a reply but the sports lawyer that we spoke to told us it's worrying the i.o.c. hasn't publicly commented on the issue. what's interesting is you heard the outcry in the media about these allegations you haven't seen any action by wada as it currently stands i don't see there being an investigation which you know is in the light of everything we've discovered with regards to the russian doping allegations is troubling everybody where there is a problem should be investigated we need to understand that the doping is in fact
9:32 pm
a global problem is raised by this documentary we need to understand that doping as happened and occurs across the world and that this is not an incident slated to russia that this is a global problem it's a continuing problem and it's something we need to address seriously right now even the greatest anti-doping experts in the west as a lot of cannot currently detect doping in athletes that's a problem. egypt has found no evidence that russia somehow it defeated in the case briggs referendum that's according to the company's global head of public policy you testified in front of the u.k. house of commons committee. we looked at all advertisements with any connection to russia and we found no evidence of our services being used to interfere in the process referendum but we don't look in a surly for pay for advertising the election but actually the operation of channels will go to the films which show which can be linked back to russia nations who have
9:33 pm
a political purpose a message through the referendum would you be able to do that for us we are happy to cooperate with that investigation so it says yes yes despite these and endless attempts to accuse russia of brecht's that meddling in this pressure on online platforms to expose any shady business that russia might have been up to yet another revelation this time from you tube that nothing of sort had happened this indeed at yet another session of the u.k. parliamentary committee inquiring into feek news who this time travel to washington to ask their questions but it has to be said that despite all of their hard work this inquiry has produced no results of substance so far if you remember previously this committee seems to have been sort of left hanging by twitter we found that one percent of the accounts in the data set were registered in russia could you confirm how many other accounts were being controlled from agencies in russia even if they were not registered there we do not have sufficiently strong evidence to enable us
9:34 pm
to conclusively linked them with russia the failure to obtain straight answers is simply increasing concerns about these issues rather than reassuring people well this as google also said they found no evidence of russian meddling in the brics that referendum as well as of course facebook following their investigation having said that they found that russia spent seventy three p. on any kind of posts related to brock's that. well regarding campaign financing a u.k. campaign to reverse the briggs's vote has received a hefty boost from american billionaire george soros best for britain has confirmed that he donated almost half a million pounds through his foundation george soros foundations have along with a number of other major donors who made significant contributions to our work indeed through his foundations he has contributed four hundred thousand pounds he's funding is one among many sources best for britain is a pro e.u.
9:35 pm
lobbying group pushing for a second briggs referendum one of the key ideas is quote lead not leave the e.u. campaign to influence the opinion of the public and politicians on the issue downing street has reacted quickly to his amaze spokesperson insisted there will be no second referendum because the country has of course already voted to leave the european union human rights and labor rights lower down the volatile is when the light could speak to you down. keeps cropping up again this breaks it will be another vote what do you make of the fact that we've got a u.s. billionaire funding a group that's trying to reverse u.k. policy isn't that foreign interference well of course and of course we know that george soros i'm self has played a role in interfering in many country in some of the color revolutions so-called color revolutions in eastern europe for example and of course we know that the us
9:36 pm
government itself has and continues to meddle quite seriously in other people's elections with in other people's political processes for example secretary of state tellers and just were recently on a trip to latin america he called for the military in venezuela to overthrow their democratically elected president i mean. it's a joke frankly that the west accuses russia of somehow meddling. in era lections when in fact the west has made frankly a profession of doing so and it's not just soros we've got the real new party now as i understand that's bank by french politicians again they're calling for a change on the decision of bragg's it is not another example of foreign interference. well yes of course and you know i mean the interesting thing of course is we live in
9:37 pm
a global world and you know some involvement you know my view for example is that the united states which has troops in you know over one hundred thirty countries i think wherever they have troops those people should be able to vote in us elections you know i mean we all impact each other's lives and economies and politics you know what one person might call interferences other my just call lobbying or whatever i mean we live in a global world and there's always going to be some of this happening. but when russia is accused of doing it somehow it you know takes on this you know allegedly nefarious attribute which i just think is not fair you know so i mean the point i'm trying to make here is. where is the consistency in if it isn't there why isn't it so we've got the the u.s. government the british government looking in every corner to try and find evidence
9:38 pm
that that russia or interfered in this election or that referendum we've got quite clearly george soros is involved but quite clearly french politicians involved in trying to alter the democratic decision so are they going to be investigations into them is they going to be consistency. i doubt it i think again i think for countries like the u.s. the u.k. i think their view is they can mad on anyone else's political processes that will but other people can't participate in there so i mean it is a double standard clearly a double standard and i think again the u.s. will protect that double standard. to the hilt in we see that time and time again. don appreciate your time your thoughts my guest human and labor rights slow down thank you. thank you. republican lawmakers in the united states are threatening to cut funding to the world health organization cancer research program and this is at the international agency for research on cancer said that america's most widely

9:40 pm
public some have disagreed with republicans it is important that we review the methods and tactics that industry has used to influence this administration and attack independent scientific organizations like the world health organization's international agency for research on cancer or i or would like to say that fundamentally this hearing is about the ability of a public health agency to call a carcinogen a carcinogen even if that carcinogen makes a huge amount of money for powerful corporations according to the center for responsive politics monsanto lobbied more than four point three million dollars in twenty seventeen the environmental protection agency which is not an international organization concluded that the same ingredient does not cause cancer and i are says that they've been under attack ever since they published their conclusions against life a state at the same time monsanto has been pushing against these findings through several different means and the company is seen as quite controversial not only in
9:41 pm
the u.s. but all over the world president micron promised in november that life of say would be banned within three years dinette a clean modified crops have been banned in. over thirty five different countries but not banned in the u.s. international organizations have included that like as it could be cancerous so these are lawmakers and tensions are quite unclear. the body of a military pilot felipe of his being returned to his hometown of a rummage in western russia a major died fighting in syria after his plane was shot down by militants. the funeral for a major roman filipe of who died tragically fighting in syria takes place here in his hometown of earlier we saw hundreds of people attending the memorial ceremony as family members friends his colleagues people who didn't know him all came to pay their last respects and now the same crowd say here at this cemetery illumination to speak to some people who share it with us their memories of this is and i just

9:47 pm
years without any interference whatsoever is not impartial i mean he's got an agenda there is very definite got definitely got his views and he uses his media to push those views now in a free society that's acceptable to a certain extent but it's a bit cheeky of him to start check attacking other people for expressing their views in a perfectly legitimate fashion and it just shows how twisted the debate about these things in the west has now become and that brings us to the end of this news hour thirty minutes to go and i'll be back with the latest headlines. the pentagon recently released its new nuclear posture review its critics are stunned not only the use of nuclear weapons is now more thinkable but it's also the threshold for their use is been lowered dr strangelove would be proud is the world facing another dangerous arms race very few united states pay more attention to
