that's what i call. let's go right out of moscow for trying to show her face on a shocker. on our. very warm welcome to the program from all of us here at r t h q in moscow thanks for tuning in this hour. we start with breaking news as the british foreign secretary boris johnson has resigned he's the third minister to quit in just twenty four hours with all three refusing to back to recent days plans for a so-called soft to brag said where u.k. ties to the e.u. stay as close as possible johnson has now published his resignation letter online he said that that should have been about opportunities but quote that dream is dying suffocated by the needless self-doubt also he said that government has a song to sing but the words of it stick in the throat are they has the details of
the shock resignation. the u.k. prime minister to resign may faced a tense meeting with tory m.p.'s and peers in parliament today as she was hoping to try and get control of her cabinet admits to all the infighting and her leadership is under a huge risk out the moment the infighting surrounds that may's idea for i think the silly tainted customs arrangement that's her plan about securing a trade deal once the u.k. leaves the next march two thousand and nineteen now the reason praxiteles are angry is because the current plan has been quoted as being a soft breakfast and closely aligned with the rules and mates having trouble balancing her cabinet at the moment and this is what has led to resignations these past twenty four hours but the foreign secretary boris johnson who is an influential figure the face in fact of the vote to leave campaign in two thousand and sixteen well he was meant to give a press conference at the western balkans summit in london but downing street put out a statement saying two reason they have accepted his resignation to resume
a speaking in parliament today thanks boris johnson for his work but this is how they reacted but i want to recognize the work of the former secretary of state for accepting the european union to recognise the passion that the former foreign secretary demonstrated it. to him promoting the to earn from zero zero zero order of the arms she really atmosphere was all i want to hear about these important marches she was he was sure that the prime minister thank you for the call the foreign sector demonstrated in promoting the global britart of the world as we leave the european union but despite the eruptions of laughter to resume a spokesperson said the government is not in a meltdown he said that there's no question of revisiting the position agreed on in checkers on friday but meanwhile jeremy cool been the leader of the labor party has mocks may's claim that she's restored cabinet responsibility two years on general
sixteen months on from articles. being triggered it's only this. the cabinet managed to agree on the go shooting position. for hours corbin says that he understands why ministers did not resign on friday because their phones were made they would have lost their cars because of government cuts and there would be no bus services but there were also reports that m.p. said that they were on standby just in case ready to spec m.p.'s up if they did resign on friday but in the past twenty four hours we've also seen the resignation of david davis the secretary which also led to his number two resigning following his example well he said the reason they had given away too much too easily when he resigned on sunday evening but the resignations of two of the cabinets most senior ministers leaves to reason made the cabinet now in a tenuous position former london mayor ken livingstone told us he's never seen
british politics in such disorder. the simple fact is i can't ever recall time in my life when the politics of the british government has been in such a thing and with complete impossibility to try and understand where we will be in three months or six months or next year will the government to go if we don't know if it will we actually vote to leave we don't know literally i've never known such an uncertainty in all my time in politics and frankly i suspect it would be a huge impact on our economy what foreign corporation is going to be thinking of investing in britain when all of this is helping me and there is no one person on either side who can unite the tory party around this issue i am the most divisive issue and it takes me back to the nineteen nineties when and then tory prime minister john major who was trying to preside over a tory party totally devoted to the empowerment of whether or not we should join
the common currency and at the end of his you had a labor landslide and i think most property trees and money made two of the next general election but that could be later this year i i think looking at the mess in the tory party now it's much more likely that it will be jeremy corbyn as a labor prime minister who will then negotiate a better deal with the. well parliaments been debating the future of teresa mayes cabinet and the bracks that negotiations the government's cobra emergency committee has been holding a meeting over the poisoning incident in amesbury that's why woman along with her partner were exposed to the no we choked nerve agent she died overnight official still can't say whether the agent came from the same batch as the one that was used in march of poisoning of a former russian double agent and his daughter in the nearby city of solsbury. we know that the tests conducted at porton down have shown that both individuals were
exposed to the same type of not ritual used to poison the discreet power in march offices are still trying to work out how the pair were exposed to the same movie jude although tests have confirmed that they touched a contaminated item with the hands. very serious new turn with the news of the passing away of dawn sturgis one of the two people that was affected in this so-called second poisoning incident she was forty four years old and she had passed away on sunday evening and now that this has happened it's clear to understand that the investigation is going to be expected to be much more vigorous and certainly stronger language is going to be needed than the one we've seen so far along the lines of most likely while the investigation is still continuing with lots of questions still around about where and how this couple could have potentially contaminated themselves we've heard that the working theory so far is that they
came in contact with some kind of contaminated object and of course lots of questions there about how that could have happened given the millions and millions of pounds spent on dea come into contact the nation work in souls this is not stopping some officials in the u.k. including the u.k. defense minister to still continue to drag russia into the story the reality is that russia has committed an attack on british soil which you see. this is something designed think the world will unite with is actually. well if you keep in mind gavin williamson was a british politician who really raised eyebrows not just in russia but also here in the u.k. when it came to this whole scandal when he said that russia should shut up and go away so in this particular case what could be seen as a somewhat premature reaction. seems to be followed by some british politicians as
well as journalists here in westminster time to send a clear message to putin about chemical weapons relegated the remaining games of the world cup to elsewhere in europe and also indifference to collateral damage is one of the hallmarks of the putin regime and its extraterritorial operation. so that novacek victims don't sturges has died this was a murder of a british citizen and as a result of the use of a chemical nerve agent produced by the russian state now certainly just to remind our viewers this is been a story that has been going on for over four months now following the so-called original poisoning of sergei and his daughter who are now well and recovered following quite some time at the hospital but they have been discharged and their whereabouts and current condition seems to be kept well under wraps and now with this latest poisoning that can certainly be described as extremely unexpected not least so by the british government that has been really pushing to some extent so
hard this narrative of russia haven't been behind the script poisoning which of course russia has denied throughout this whole time it is quite safe to assume that some very serious facts are going to be having to be produced especially given this death and of course the consequences of that this whole saga has had on the ties between russia and the u.k. . they were winning journalists who helped the whistleblower edward snowden to expose the secrets of the n.s.a. has found himself under attack for visiting russia for a cyber security conference or more often has more. well glenn greenwald who is the famous journalist who exposed electronic surveillance in the united states using the documents of edward snowden revealed by edward snowden the whistleblower he is getting a lot of criticism at this point now he went to russia he attended a conference on cyber security at that conference he spoke at
a panel related to the issue of fake news and then from there he went and did a t.v. interview with this network this is some of what he said in his interview with r.t. there's an obsession in the united states with viewing russia not just as an adversary but as an actual enemy it's permeated both political parties there's actually talk a lot now about how what they regard as the interference in the twenty six thousand election is similar to pearl harbor now from there we saw a whole lot of media voices in the usa jump on glenn greenwald's simply for the fact that he gave this interview one commentator from m.s. n.b.c. responded to the fact that glenn greenwald stated his views in an interview with this network this way this is what was said glenn greenwald shows he's true colors as an agent of trauma and moscow now we know why here how snowden defect covers for the leaks attack on democracy and shields from fox news he's deep in the kremlin's
pocket. now a tweet from a media outlet associated with voice of america accuse glenn greenwald of quote voicing support for the government of russia in his interview now wiki leaks responded pointing out that at no point did mr greenwald voiced support for the russian government that was not anything he said in his interview at no point in the interview did he make statements supporting the russian government so this tweet from a u.s. government media outlet voice of america was simply not correct now glenn greenwald is not the first individual to have been targeted this way and basically accused of all kinds of things simply for appearing on this network we saw that green party presidential candidate jill stein faced similar allegations simply because she did interviews on r.t. and that she went to russia and met lattimer putin and we've also seen in the recent in the aftermath of the passing away of edge scholtz we've seen similar statements and strange things made in allegations made in the obituaries in the
reporting around his death so glenn greenwald has responded to those jumping on him for doing the interview saying that this is simply mccarthyism and it reminds people of the period in the united states in which guilt by association was very common and people were being accused of being disloyal and treasonous simply for meeting with somebody or giving an interview or shaking hands with someone glenn greenwald is quick to jump on this as an example of kind of the hysterical atmosphere created around russia in the united states the subject of the interview he gave to r.t. . this week don't want him to part on a weeklong tour of europe where he'll meet his russian counterpart and his nato allies the u.s. leader has warned alliance members he might withdraw american forces from the continent if they don't pay up. i'll see data when i'm going to tell nato you got to see us paying your bills united states. elite all nato members may be concerned trumps tough talking it seems not everyone
keen on keeping the alliance up and running anti-war activists in the belgium how little hit the streets on saturday denouncing the military as well as trump's upcoming visit to brussels. the next stop on trump's tour will be the u.k. and protesters there are ready to track his every move politico looks at why trump might end up not enjoying his stint in britain. when the orange one travels to britain he is going to join a long line of u.s. presidents face to pretend that the special relationship is real in order to get a selfie with the queen very fair to say that he would be universally welcome but the last thing that downing street and the state department wanted just for the donald to find out that he lazy a little bit unpopular so we at i see my arm i have prepared a video guide for head of his arrival so somebody washington just turned off fox
news for a second and showed him this and everything else. mr president the people of britain are waiting to greet you in truly unprecedented numbers tens of thousands will line the streets getting lose ready to shoot now because of how keen some people are to meet you this trip will probably avoid central london which also means bypassing all those knife wielding islamist terrorists that you don't want to be highlighted in the pollsters lurking on every street corner the queen will instead greet you when there is state which is far more exclusive surrounded by very high rules and much closer to the royal protocol dictates that it is better if you do not comment on her majesties of parents trying to touch her or attempt to grab her by simon i'm not saying that now mr president last years in the future the emerged of you in a very compromising position with one particular woman you're going to have to meet
again. and this time around we're mitigating the risk of any such leaks by having you meet mrs may not check it is her version of david and again with the purpose of keeping away from all those adoring crowds i'm pleased about addressing parliament like previous lose the u.s. president's lack of an invite has prevented the embarrassment of us having to decline it but sadly you won't have time to read all positionally that jeremy corbyn a show. a little britain's but he has expressed a desire to discuss a number of issues with you it's thought he has a lover. and in order to demonstrate your dedication to the job of being president this trip has been upgraded from a mass state visit to a much more noble visit and time has been allocated should you wish to carry out some of your. own either or your golf courses in scotland mr president believe me when i say that britain isn't waiting for you.
saw that so i phoned the police and told them you know. how come you're pick up my daughter what to do and when you're going to let her go. back home back back home. oh or two hours the next day then they told me she wasn't there and they never did anything like after i saw that i told them i think like good you guys took her. what to do with her and they were saying. she's not here so it couldn't have been ass. and i kept going back there and i started accusing them you know are you guys taken girls because if you are you know i'm going to make sure that you guys pay for that. meanwhile according to a canadian police report in two thousand and fourteen alone one hundred sixty four indigenous women went missing a year later the number grew to one hundred seventy four. it's
a tragedy that. doesn't seem to end. girls are still going missing women and girls. and that scares us i think they think we're easy prey you know we're something they can just help themselves to like take advantage of and. it's got to be you know i can't i can't think of any other reason they must think or pray they want something to chase something to her something to kill and that's us all of this has led to activism the women's memorial march is held annually in different canadian cities to commemorate those murdered or missing events goal is also to highlight the problem and particularly to cases involving native women the mother of missing don't need a big legal claims indigenous women suffer frequent attacks. we asked the royal canadian mounted police to comment on big eagles case but have yet to receive
a reply or why williams who also lost a family member claims native women are attacked as the assailants no police will do very little. we're targeting your. credit or knowledge that not knowing what. we know or that whether we were your art style. or just all my life i grew up around my. how much. we're. all one my mom since no one saw her. in this so i know all the laws especially written are slammed by my hard work. myself and i'm on scene where all the lines are and you are i mean there is another where you think indigenous women forward with allegations against the corporate
apartment and things that they were that's an insult but nothing happened. let's turn to the world cup now it's a day without games so it's been fairly quiet here in moscow but it's the calm before the storm with just four countries left in the race for top laurie tamal france clash with belgium in the semifinals both teams are favorites of the tournaments and then england play croatia in moscow on wednesday. meanwhile the charity footy match involving stars of the game has been held in red square participating was the captain of west germany's nineteen ninety world cup winning side and axed russia midfielder alexander most of oyo the game was organized by the naked heart foundation which helps children with disabilities expected those taking part wasn't really good seeing children participates their emotions how it helps them become a part of this policy this is the best stone or
a reward. thing. that presented but i like that i can be here and help and also play here on red square. that's the thing to remember i'm really glad to participate in such an event be part of the free food world cup which seems to me is absolutely fantastic. i'm so proud of the same russia i'm so proud that i seem to have played funtastic for the bowl i think that they conquered the hearts of the biggest skeptics about russian football and know what is actually happening today is really important because now thousands of boys and girls will want will be motivated to take on this force and of course when it comes to young kids with special needs they're not an exception they also want to play for the goals of the world cup is going to
have an impact on them. and can use this moment was for say. the last fifty years from the beginning in just four days and i think this is a very nice and a very good producer ship and sing consists in. a bottle each side from each other from the world cup was very nice to know there's a look of surprise for syrians they doing caught up was filmed history the same with the washington post in the tournament of the quarterfinals maybe for many russians except. the opening game of this world cup was also a first by having both girls our correspondent in the upper trenker checked out the state of women's football in russia. which team has the best pass accuracy in the opening game of the world cup it must be russia after all they won five nil no saudi arabia wrong again so here's who did. they found
another player with every single power the first ever ball girls the world cups opening match their from a junior women's football club cold today from a neighborhood that's remote even by russian standards to get their free moment at the world cup opener the teenagers won a contest against boys and girls from all over the world's biggest countries. so it is obviously. guilty here but it seems that if it says it could be said it was the. millions would have loved to find themselves in the same boots. girls from this amateur football club from moscow not so many of those in russia for now but kept them in you won't see them helping out at the russian world cup
arenas but these ladies of f.c. girl power don't need special occasions to shine on and off the pitch their team can for one throw a party that would lower crowds of moscow's most hip party goers. for a bit of fun and all in the name of football women's amateur football football for everyone. just. for. fun no you simply got away. with the first thing you're a ten year old to get the good of you to let. them know about it over. but i'm sure you don't like. to give me a board that would be good i'd. give a good what sonny. barger are yeah. yeah yeah most of em if it but it.

a shame could have to. keep the shield key these can united and i didn't need it she did you see. the show me a little bit along you have some of those were just the off button you don't believe some day you do all of the chop course the way he's created so you know and then i put him up old boy she knew that one of those an all star you know my you my man can tell me else to live what are your kids on the football and yeah yeah we would all up for the gold but the wish that you are going to stay must see a new model of the city building. now that's what i call. such a big ball rat heart of moscow to try and grow verses i did actually be an artsy.
