there good afternoon two pm monday moscow live from the r.t. new center is kevin i with you for this latest thirty minute update will welcome to you first than donald trump's national security adviser john bolton is in moscow for talks right now with russia's foreign minister the visit comes after president trump announced he was taking the u.s. out of that crucial nuclear arms treaty with russia while also vowing to develop new weapons the treaty was signed way back in nineteen eighty seven between the vendor soviet union and the united states under the agreement all mid range nuclear and conventional missiles were eliminated apart from those launch from sea with all eyes the normally upcoming meeting today his he goes down for the latest sergey lavrov russia's top diplomat is expected to meet with the man seen as one biggest champion of for scraping all of this i.n.f.
treaty i should say and this is of course john bolton the national security adviser for president the was. donald trump but while the big debate is ongoing whether or not the american president is indeed making the right call. russia's top diplomats aguilar of this morning's press conference here stressed that this could be indeed too early for any speculation have a lesson. in usual in regards to the u.s. position on the i.n.f. treaty i have yet to see the decision by the u.s. president i have only heard about his intentions as i have also seen some of the reactions to it that's been mixed some support others have urged the u.s. not to turn down the whole system of arms control both nuclear and conventional but let's not speculate at this point as that would be counterproductive let's wait for official clarification give john bolton is ready to do so we're happy to hear it and we'll make our position clear based on
a clear statement could withdraw procedure has so far not been activated russia's foreign minister has also stressed that moscow has been committed to the deal and has repeatedly called that it should stay in effect past its current twenty twenty one deadline but he also did add that if trump puts his money where his words are well then russia will respond with counter action and in fact reaction has been pouring from all over the globe the chinese have warned that trumps unilateral withdrawal from the deal will have indeed a multilateral effect and one thing to understand about this treaty is that critics view it as very one sided in favor of the united states just long story short is the russia's ability for quick military buildup impaired greatly under this treaty while washington's concessions well they are insignificant and that's why probably the former american ambassador to moscow has said that the biggest loser is if
trump pulls out of the deal america's european allies and indeed judging by. is coming from europe well they feel threatened the french president a mineral necron has called the i.n.f. treaty key to european stability and he wasn't the only one the announcement by the us that is going to withdraw from the i.m.f. accord is regrettable the i.n.f. agreement has been an important pillar of our european security architecture for thirty years for us in europe it's of great importance we call on the us to consider the possible consequences so indeed right now the only thing to do is to look forward to this meeting between that sergey lavrov and john bolton and whether or not heard john bolton's hawkish stance will stand here in moscow. well let's take a look at how we reached this point. the arms race is getting out of control. i'm with you we did not initiate this kind of
events as you know there was no we pulled out of the antiballistic missile treaty russia has developed and developing it stabilizing weapon systems for more than a decade in direct violation of its treaty obligations and look at the shit we are in response to the threats that confronted us we're moving forward to modernize our nuclear arsenal and ensure their capabilities remain i'm just we will never allow anybody to have anything even close to what we have to go additionally if our american. greenland's who will give an immediate and reciprocal response. russia has violated the agreement they've been violated here for many years that i don't know why president obama didn't negotiate for pullout. we're not going to let them violate the nuclear agreement they go out of their weapons that we're not
allowed to we're the ones that have stayed in the agreement and we bonded to agreements but russia is not unfortunately on to the agreement so we're going to terminate a great bit we're going to pull out. the security architecture of the european. writ large space is a very important thing and the problem is that security architecture is broken there shouldn't be a western front for russian security there shouldn't be an eastern front for european nato these things shouldn't exist at this point in the twenty first century we don't need this class of weapons why don't we just do away with it and find other ways to get along better that don't involve voluntarily you know eliminating classes of weapons. this is it comes for the day now another big story to tell you briefly about the latest in another extraordinary development in the case of slain journalist jamal khashoggi saudi arabia's foreign minister says the outspoken columnist was murdered by a rogue operation at its consulate in istanbul i think it was
a tremendous mistake however washington isn't rushing with any repercussions over it seems for now anyway within a caution it has got the latest for you live. after weeks of denying it saudi arabia confirms jamal khashoggi was murdered inside his consul eight and a symbol. so who did this to the school because their authority obviously was a tremendous mistake made and what compounded the mistake was the attempt to try to cover up is unacceptable if you come from and these things unfortunately happen we want to make sure that those who are responsible are punished they value those responsible will be punished but will saudi arabia face any where precautions. so do your abuse admission is a good first step but not enough it would be premature to comment on sanctions until we get further down the investigation doesn't look like it's premature you might wonder why am murder of such astounding proportions isn't immediately
punished well remember this cripples poisoning here is the reaction that emerged just hours after the initial reports. is highly likely that russia was responsible to hold russia culpable culpable culpable for the attempted murder is kate is culpable quarrel is with putin's kremlin overwhelmingly you likely that it was his decision and days later the diplomatic fallout was at a level rarely seen before saying expulsion of russian diplomats and more sink shots. from time to time certain steps are being taken by the. rush including sanctions on very contrived reasons without any evidence provided of russia allegedly using chemical weapons so there is no evidence that steps are being taken against russia and now we see a murder in istanbul but no steps are being taken so we need to sort out our single
approach to cases like these washington chimed in that so what's stopping them now . the rebels got a great ally but i would prefer that we don't use. canceling one hundred ten billion dollars worth of work they are ordering military equipment everybody in the world one of that order we get it and we are all of it every bit of it i don't like stopping massive amounts of money that's being poured into our country spending one hundred ten billion dollars on military equipment and things that create good jobs like jobs and others for this country well you are up and some even some american senators believe arms sales need to be stopped. firstly we are outraged by this case we made it clear yesterday secondly there is no need for details and those responsible are still not being held accountable thirdly i agree
with all those who say that arms exports which are already limited must not take place in the consequence times and fourthly further reactions should be internationally coordinated i feel certain that the crown prince was involved in it he directed this and that's why i think we cannot continue to have relations with him i would cut off arms sales as the only thing the saudis will listen to but trunk as adamant it's a big first step it's only a first step but it's a big first. the turkish president promises to reveal all the ugly truth on tuesday. we are looking for justice here and this will be revealed in all its naked truth not through some ordinary steps but in all its naked truth. the question as well this finally be enough to trigger air reaction from the white house in a good question will our teases sophie shevardnadze spoke to her former chief of
staff to the u.s. secretary of state he believes donald trump is an administration are unpredictable the full interview on air instantly just to let you know news tip of throw the day and also on our web site is true every want to see that our team don't go home. no one know and this is the mystery of this administration it's a conundrum what trumps policy is from monday to tuesday to the end of the week so it's very difficult other than listening to strident voices like those of john bolton the neoconservative nutcase in my view or mike pompei o who is not far from that definition i don't know what policy is but it looks at times like a continuation of bomber stalls see with some different ingredients largely manufactured by outside players like air to one in turkey britain and moscow and to a certain extent the ayatollah and president rouhani in tehran and interesting the most insidious influence in the whole business had been saddam on in saudi arabia.
that if you can the next this is bizarre graveyard soil coffin nails and even the some revenge oil that's what a coven of witches in new york of used to place a hex on the u.s. supreme court justice brett kavanaugh this past weekend he was recently appointed of course the lifetime position after facing those sexual misconduct allegations the event was met with protesters condemning the sorcery one a catholic priest in excess is to tend to counter this by saying a mass caleb maupin was spellbound. so we're here in brooklyn where a group of pagan witches have gathered to place a hex on the newly confirmed supreme court justice brett kavanaugh now in the
statements for the event essentially they said that black magic is a mechanism for exacting justice by women who have been wronged by men just like him now the ceremony is taking place in this occult bookstore behind me. now here in liberal brooklyn witchcraft wicca might just be considered be another hobby or fascination but in some parts of the country it's no laughing matter there are schools around the country where the harry potter books are forbidden from the school library because christian parents are offended by the witchcraft content and there's been cases where satanists and wiccan practitioners have gone to court demanding their religious freedom needless to say tonight ceremony did not sit well with a number of trump supporters it is a scary time right now i mean there's a list of things going on now you've got witches that are placing a head on brett kavanaugh now a catholic priest who's been trained in rome as
a bonafide exorcist says he will be conducting a mass to protect brett kavanaugh from the witches he says that witchcraft is not a matter of free speech conjuring up personified evil does not fall under free speech satanic cults often commit crimes they murder and sexually abuse everyone in their cult we decided to talk to some of the people attending the ceremony or gathered outside the bookstore and see how they feel about cursing kavanagh do you think the ceremony tonight will actually impact brett kavanaugh or no it will not but it will make everybody feel like they have accomplished something and you know people need to feel like they've accomplished something possibly could backfire and help brett kavanaugh easily yes i mean he. trump three times right now it's so tempting to be doing the liberty bell for guys but heck sometimes i'm hopeful as i am but i don't want him to die i just want him so i may be paralyzed the rest of his life so we can talk or something so you're coming out to counter the the witch
ceremony it's not an act countering is sincere in the love of god so we just want to say instead of like curses anyone at c.b.s. these blessings and we want to show the love of god because we're not about hate because that's what that's about we're showing that we're actually about love i encourage everyone to also go out and register to vote magic is one thing but you know now the polls are another so will brett kavanaugh us ten year on the u.s. supreme court be impacted by tonight's ceremony or is he going to be protected by that catholic mass conducted by an exorcist or is this all just a bunch of silly superstition it means absolutely nothing well like with most spiritual matters there's no way to be absolutely sure but what we can be sure of is that americans are increasingly becoming divided kaleb mopp and r.t. new york we're going to follow that to tell you where we go into a break but when we come back environmentalist in britain are up in arms off to fracking gets the green light once again just one of the stories ahead in ninety seconds time.
when else should seem wrong. why don't we just don't call. me we'll get to shape out the steam coming after. and in detroit because the trail. went something to find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground . i did the war planning for the principal force provider command in the united states military order for years i've worked on this region for years i do not understand this saudi arabia is the greatest state sponsor of terrorism in the world still today and yet
we all here on that we lie when we say that we right blatantly lie when we say that moreover we know we're lying. and you for a have a could see in northwest england have been demonstrating again of the site where the controversial gas extraction method is set to resume on monday after a seven in h y but is called fracking. first we give the green light to restart operations that previously been suspended in twenty eleven besides environmental cost companies one of the dangerous link they think to earth quakes the number of big trouble has been recorded over the is
believed to be caused by the drilling process involved in fracking last year a number of activists were arrested during a peaceful demonstration we spoke to one of them. spent three weeks in prison for tracking protests we managed to shut down operations this fracking site every day of the month for a whole month of july last year it may take them over a year to take me to court. for the action i did i did a piece production i climbed on top of a diary that was that was to differing. i stayed up and. three in our face that we stopped the convoy of seven always carrying them. drilling supports for the drilling rig it was a deterrent sentence and they were hoping that by putting the tickets in prison they would deter future direct action protests against the trucking industry. richard roberts is one of three campaigners charged last september with public
nuisance offenses sentenced to sixteen months in jail for blocking access to a fracking site the trio were the first environmental activist to be jailed in the u.k. in almost ninety years and appeal judge the ruling is excessive an extraordinary and place the prison terms with conditional discharge is that time will just be on the original sentence in could also be facing disciplinary action no to the recent revelation shows he may have a close connection to the energy industry several members of his family reportedly work for an oil and gas corporation that prompted calls for the u.k. just as quickly to launch an investigation which roberts again says the energy lobby goes well beyond this one case too. this state. is clearly facing an industry that nobody wants on communities around the u.k. every running up or cation it was. around this country was rejected sometimes you know numerous ways by a large majority and now we have county councils such as lancashire. who have
outright rejected the trucking industry and yet. returned the station employees in the street and that's why when i was standing on top of a lonely so many cars were peeking in support they were waving out there when they sow to. keep it up may stay up. there for some as you can ride with fifty x. or current oil and gas executives in u.k. government and they have financial interests. will be the one. who continue to follow the story this too with the u.s. midterm elections near at hand now the state of texas has found itself the political at the center of the crucial poll examining how encouraging voters as one of the state's democratic party hold water jacqueline. never before have the u.s. midterm elections gotten so much attention and they're now just weeks away this november election is more important than any midterm in our lifetime they have to know that going out for the midterms is very important almost like going out for
the twenty twenty election that's coming up we have a chance to restore some sanity in our politics. such hype in the states is usually only reserved for presidential elections or black friday maybe but this time around we're seeing politicians grappling over every last voter and the great state of texas is no exception texas is traditionally a staunch republican state but this year the democrats are stepping up efforts to paint it blue our mission of the texas democratic party is clear fire the base permanent infrastructure and of course when elections that means aggressive communications and smart messaging their aggressive communication includes an extensive line of mirch attack means that gifts and the occasional puppy genius until now the texas democratic party are being accused of encouraging under age and now in u.s. citizens to vote after they sent out forms with the boxes saying i'm over eighteen an american pretext for voter convenience and the governor of texas is calling this
a big deal this is being investigated if true there will be serious consequences but those serious consequences likely won't fall in the party but those who receive their letters democrats say every mailing had a warning explaining that voting requirements must be met aka you must be a u.s. citizen but was the last time you actually read all of the terms of agreement in fine print most would say never you just click agree and hope you didn't just sign away your firstborn so it's no wonder people got confused and phones have been ringing off the hook sense the spokesman for the texas secretary of state said in the run up to that deadline they received a pretty large volume of code someone non-citizens who are wondering whether them a woman that had been some change and they were now in fact able to vote and what about those who didn't bother to check in with the authorities and just decided to wing it well they could find themselves in a whole world of trouble. the texas democrat party unintentionally or otherwise is offering voter registration to non citizens without some form of official
intervention confused non citizens rather than the texas dems will end up paying the consequences of this not generally speaking in the election form you are required to check a box and to sign your name if you do both of these things you have committed fraud and you're prosecutable and certainly subject to expulsion from the united states not being a citizen there is a suspicion you know that many people voted legally because we have very easy and lax voting laws in this country and we have so many non-citizens living here people who are otherwise you know which will to vote. we believe many of these people do vote because they have a deep seated interest for years the republican party has required or would like to see a requirement of people signing and applying a signature or having some some kind of id to prove who they are so that it marries against registration every country in the world does this and the democrats fight it tooth and nail because. they feel that this sort of activity
will drive down their vote. in two worshipers in southern india defying a court order to allow women into it may just ride on sunday a group of women tried to enter a temple in corral it was blocked by crowds of religious conservatives in the midst of all the chaos has been a five day long prayer ritual at that site. as long as the temple is here we have to follow this tradition. so we'll ensure that anybody who wants to go to that it will go without any
obstruction or stretching will be tolerated or made me go. to splash in calcutta says i am not a devotee i'm just here to do my job just let me go she faces stone and that's when seize forced to return back. to support services. and. protest that they would object to this talk to the sponsors. truck in this is south america thousands of mostly honduran migrants have resumed their journey through mexico
they're hoping to reach the u.s. border despite vocal opposition from donald trump the president's threaten the whole trade to honduras and guatemala in between and close the u.s. border with mexico if the march is not stopped those refugees arrived on mexico southern border on friday they say they're fleeing poverty and violence in the central american countries mexican authorities allowed dozens of women and children to enter the country however many migrants crossed the border illegally. the way some of the world do stories looking so far this monday afternoon from moscow it's going to be a busy day watching this john bolton visit thanks for watching us for now and of course keep up to date with all the latest virus r.t. dot com and breaking news straight to mobile voice kevin i would say i'm good.
pranking gave americans a lot of new job opportunities i needed to come up here to make some money i could make twenty five thousand dollars as a teacher or i could make fifty thousand dollars a year girl truck so i chose to drive trucks people rush to a small town in north dakota was an unemployment rate of zero percent like gold rush is very very similar to a gold rush but this beautiful story ended with pollution and devastation a lot of people have left here i don't know too many people here anymore just slow down so much they lost their jobs that laid off the american dream is changing that's not what it used to be. and it's a tough reality to deal. with politicians to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected.
so when you want to be president i'm sure. more so more want to. have to go right to be cross it's like them before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters in the house. they said. prosecution will need to become almost. cold where you push. this thread you'll find somebody known to seem to i mean yeah i mean i mean political pressure on that i need him and conclude to know through security jenison knows where the bundled up business models used by american corporations doubtless was incomplete please sold them could matilda's you to use. the i know what's on the scene. the solution. lies up in association
with. new can he sell sometimes it is just somebody with deleting data and investigative documentary. ghost war on oxy. hello and welcome to cross talk or all things considered i'm peter lavelle its official now jim died in the saudi consulate in turkey on october second the person or persons responsible for his death is yet to be determined but one thing is
certain this tragic story is far from old. cross talking some real news i'm joined by my guest here in moscow mark silva he's an international affairs and security analyst we also have to he's a political analyst with make international and we have these and he is a professor at the higher school of economics as well as author of the decay of western civilization and resurgence of russia. in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want and i always appreciate it glenn in the future we're going to do a review of your book but we're going to stick with this story here mark who are the winners who are the losers here and where do you think this is going to go. well the. ultimate loser is of course the journalists laugh.
