i. thought. the stores showed the week just gone russia's been handed a 4 year paid in or hosting a major sports event following a scandal involving the alleged tampering of medical data. so. how could the plan use the whole country all as treats no matter whether or not they should just punish those who are guilty british conservative party swept up its biggest election victory more than 30 years with the scottish national party also winning big north of the border giving renewed interest to independent schools . and a suicide bomber detonated a car bomb outside america's base in afghanistan choose day the very same place trying to put paid to surprise thanksgiving visit.
1:01 pm
every 7 days we recap big stories of the week we brought you live from moscow now to international so let's do it again i'm kevin though in thanks for choosing us tonight it was the biggest headline this week for russia kicked out of the major international sporting events for the next 4 years punishment said the world only doping agency for moscow tampering with a key database of test results from russian athletes. this is about russia that protects the rights of russian seach. reentry for me it is. not. me we are not complying what is important thing to these decisions. are we really sanctioning those for responsible
1:02 pm
for this many politicians and leave doors open for those who had nothing to do is. in russia clean. our experts have provided convincing on says unfortunately they haven't heard us resign or has time to appeal initially when we handed over the database we said let's investigate the database together so that we can make a full decision we wanted to have a kind of mechanism if we all want some objective decision let's do it like this where saddam has all the necessary opportunities they could have taken a different approach so what is says clean athletes will be able to compete 100 neutral flag but russian officials are now prohibited from attending major sporting events while the country also will be allowed to host and he told them and see the list of vents that russia has banned from is pretty extensive let's take a quick look at some of the headlines of those well for a start it includes the olympic and paralympic games in tokyo coming up 2020 also
1:03 pm
on top of football's fee for world cup in qatar 2 years after that and that's the course russia hosted so recently its players will now have to play as neutrals if they qualify what is insisting it's the onus on the clean players now to prove that they haven't doped our sports correspondent let's hear a jet ski breaks it down a bit more for. it is quite unclear how exactly stripping a nation of its flag in a major sports competitions across the planet can actually solve 'd the problem of fighting against doping you are not on innocent until proven guilty and i am in school you are guilty and he can prove you're innocent a complete reversal of justice system on but it's always been that way you gotta think about what's on the world anti-doping agency has jurisdiction it doesn't act years dictionary to the russian authorities become sanction russian politicians do all it can do essentially resell it and take actions relative to schools so it's
1:04 pm
come up with this international standard to code compliance by signatories which is used to sanction russia this time around. on top of everything it seems that what is decision from monday was made in such a haste that they have no clue how to actually navigate in that decision the biggest example of that is probably the situation with you wait for anthy for tournament's well where you are where you quite expected that. these sanctions will not affect in any way russian part of the upcoming euro are 1st of all it's a continental tournament not of world qualification for or for compartment it. is again within the competence of us for it should it make it to the 2022 world cup in qatar it may be stripped of its flag of its anthem and it may be participating as a neutral country. and if you're not yet confused enough they
1:05 pm
already said directly that should russia appeal to cas the court forbids ration of sports and this process takes longer than the official preparation for next summer's olympics russia will go to next summer's olympics in tokyo as a full fledged nation but then if the band is implemented late it might miss out on the 2020 for some big games in paris from whichever side you look at it monday's decision by water looks like a vocal and very harsh indictment of russian sports it might send shock waves and reverberations in the country sport for many years to come but it might actually be the beginning of a new struggle of a new battle the legal one when russia takes its case to the court of arbitration for sports in switzerland and we are expecting this to be made quite quickly before the end of this year this is a punitive action against the law including begin to shoot once. more in just
1:06 pm
a few. garage if it's not it's particular with there's no evidence of this against them this may be raising a human rights issue whether. they're going to raise this before the court or i'm not entirely certain we have to accept that there is a political element involved. i think they're actually applying a very ambiguous more and motive here they once were in terms of collateral damage are they russian the english and russian roots of expect with great anticipation to see what. point in the western world is doing it's like saying i'm going to come into your state because somebody from you know decide who comes and goes. so some of the big names russian support in sharing their reactions with us on the back. but the doping scandal lasted for a few years i expected something like this after rio. to be honest it was
1:07 pm
expected it's a pity the athletes have to suffer it's terrible it's terrible for all russian sports 'd that's what i feel about it. it's just i don't want to make a link between sports and politics but it looks like good for those sanctions imposed by the west for the last few years. someone just wanted to punish our country but this is without reason a country is not a 3 year old child. allow us to compete under the neutral flag somehow they don't want to see the russian colors. maybe our flag is something irritating and someone doesn't want to see us compete in our flag in our own anthem. i have already hired a lawyer and even if they don't allow me to participate while i'm already
1:08 pm
a grandmother sports maybe this is our fate. begin you will somehow unite us and give those below to participate and additional boost but it does all the doping issue i'm sure more than 90 percent of all athletes are clean. but if. we support you and i'm sure you have enough patients together we will do it. make it big headlines elsewhere to the u.k. the big conservative party one resoundingly dominating performance in britain the story general election on thursday as for the opposition labor liberal democrat party so they're both seeking new leaders after it while north of the board a different picture of the scottish national party almost swept the board in terms of seats which is regarded their calls for another independence referendum from the u.k. here's how the respective party leaders reacted to a dramatic night as the result sank in. proud to say that members of our new one nation government a people's government will sit out from constituencies that have never returned
1:09 pm
a conservative m.p. for 100 years and yes they will have an overwhelming mandate from this election to get bricks it done and we will honor that mandate by general the 31st of all not only departing in any future general election campaign i will discuss with our party to ensure there is a process now of reflection on this result and on the policies that the party will take going forward stunning election win last night for the s.n.p. renew is reinforces and strengthens the mandate we have from previous elections to offer the people of scotland a choice over their future that mandate says that it is for the scottish parliament nort a westminster government to the saide whether and when this should be a new referendum on independence so quick recap of those the final numbers there
1:10 pm
are 650 seats in the house of commons do the math and the party needs 326 to hold a majority the conservatives eventually took hold of 365 seats while labor got $203.00 their lowest since the 1930 s. so it could tailor breaks down more of what happened. thursday saw the 3rd general election in just 4 years so how did we end up on this roller coaster again wost wel my friends it's the usual suspect yeah you guessed it. sits to play it turns out that decision taken by those 17400000 people in june 26th exit the e.u. set off a chain reaction that's led to this moment but i'm guessing ahead of myself let's start from the beginning the british people have made a very clear decision to take a different part of my view we should aim to have a new prime minister in place ok so now we're down one prime minister let's see how
1:11 pm
the next one fat a couple of weeks later to resume a tick on the and then the ball roll of finding a way through the process that wilderness and she was very clear about her goal bricks it means bricks it rex it means bricks it and where you're going to make a success of the original bricks it deadline was set for march 29th teen oh those early days of optimism but this is possibly the most divisive political issue the u.k. has faced in recent memory and peace have never felt so important all powerful so it's unsurprising that may was thwarted at every turn by those less willing to cut ties with our european friends fed up she decided to go in and call a snap election in june 2017 we need a general election and we need one now but it was a gamble that just didn't pay off the conservatives lost the majority they'd been
1:12 pm
counting on tide already need to also taught at this point every single brit just sits you're tired of the infighting your charge of the political games and the arcane procedural rounds but disappointment in the polls was really the least of maize proper. the opposition tried to get rid of her own m.p.'s tried to get rid of her and then she said she'd get rid of herself if only they'd back deal which they didn't and it just ended up being too much for may she decided to finally hang up. i do so with no ill will but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country i love ok so now we're down to prime ministers whose our lucky introducing boris johnson former mayor of london a bit of a gaffe. just like his predecessor he was absolutely adamant that he be the one to
1:13 pm
get it done can you make a promise today to the british public that you will not go back to brussels and ask for another delay to practice it yet and so you can and. to his credit he's really gone for it he was sick of parliament blocking his ideas so dissolved. for dissolved so then he went to the e.u. and negotiated a new deal which parliament defeated and then they forced to quest and not the extension which he really really really didn't want to do but to do anyway and then he just decided enough so not so wasn't she taunted the opposition party into facing off at a general election in order to quote get it done which my friends i think brings you up today. so there was some of that some experts and politicians around the u.k. for their views on the election results and possible consequences. now boris can go
1:14 pm
into a meeting to negotiate and the you can be certain that what's agreed in that meeting will actually get through parliament the big problem that we've had so far is really any suggestion that was made seem to run into this blocking wall in parliament who were determined to vote against just about everything the labor party used to say they were voting against against different solutions is needed as a general election then they voted against an election as well as a small force i think is the sentiment of the people of scotland there but it's not based on the views of any one politician it's period to the sentiment of people scotland has been moving gradually and no rapidly towards independence but at least an overwhelming view that scotland should have the right to determine its own future that is the chain suck and stance that is the better system will force the a movable object is brought us johnson though it may well be that. bought us jobs
1:15 pm
and put these things out and that they can hold back the floods generally speaking that sort of politics gives out eventually and i would refer my money is on the other system will force as opposed to the a movable object in terms of standing the test of time and of course of the last 2 years the unionist political electoral majority was ended as a result of this election unionist political representation in the north has been reduced to a minority and not quite safe to make and the context not only of the bracks issue but also with respect to the unfolding constitutional debate and ireland north and so yes it's $915.00 levy here in moscow toadies with you thank you for watching the weekly from r.t. international as we count more stories coming up afghanistan sees more violence and details emerge about the scale of the us there is no free campaign failure there where the stories are across from about.
1:16 pm
seemed wrong. to shape out the answer. and engage. the trail. find themselves worlds apart. choose to look for common ground. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race in this spirit dramatic developing the only i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical
1:17 pm
time to sit down and talk. again you're watching the weekly from out internationally sunday evening story happening right now this weekend as mass protests continue to grip india over a new citizenship law for a 5th day shots allegedly being fired a university campus in new delhi police are believed to storm the campus with tear gas following those were described as violent scenes over the past 24 hours which saw a number of facilities fatalities this video coming up over the reported shooting scene that was posted online in one of the classrooms at the jamia millia university. 100 lightning i mean. i kind of hard
1:18 pm
to work a 1st to go so bullets but as mentioned it comes as protests have intensified in the indian campus all over new law that could grow up millions of migrants in india citizenship status but it excludes crucially big problem if a lot of people are muslims in one demonstration in eastern india close to the borders of nepal bhutan and bangladesh people were seen burning an effigy of the country's home minister as they marched through the city of silly guru and protesters claim that the law is not only discriminatory but also frankly unconstitutional they say as the country's opposition threatens to take the case now to the supreme court hundreds of join the hunger strike in india's northeast where troops have been deployed on the internet shut down let's go to new delhi live get the thoughts there was something particular university as well sure i was there that a true of the web site scroll dot in the hey there good evening thank you times so 1st let's focus on this university and what's maybe been happening there hard to work out who is tear gas canisters were going off or shots being fired but anyway
1:19 pm
we believe this university shutdown to journey the 6 after some water evidently violent scenes or what have you got that from there if you got any more confirmed reports of what may have happened. so what we have now is the police entered the university sometime earlier this evening which in itself is a huge violation you know you the police don't and the university grounds no matter what the provocation and the police used an outrageous amount of force the police claim that this was in response to violence that the group that protesters had done earlier but you know there's really no confirmation to now of who did that violence and we will find that out in some time but the force that the police is used on you know you know on young kids it's really quite shocking and this is happening right in the heart of the capital and remember this from the after almost continuous protests that have broken out across the length and breadth of india. you know as
1:20 pm
we speak the state the province that i mean large parts of it would have internet. a number of states have just you know the internet sort of completely around the surf you so you know it's it's it's a rather alarming situation right now in india to the authorities expected to kick off like this. i'm not sure whether they expected it but if they did indeed rybin a mistake because this is a fundamental change to how india is as a country you know it's a constitutional change to india india was founded on secular principles in $947.00 and this act makes it a point to single out muslims so. you know if you could more than expected it should have been a but it clearly seems that the government has been caught wrong footed on this if it wasn't expecting the scale of these protests which is separate to india right now i was so what's the biggest concern amongst the majority here about this controversial citizenship citizenship act. i just i'm just going to quickly you
1:21 pm
know walk you through it so basically what the act says is a device it allows illegal migrants from all 3 countries which is probably a son of a son and bangladesh right to countries in south asia it gives illegal migrants of 6 religions a chance to become immune to this you are right now we're completely fine with the thing is islam is not one of those 6 religions right so it's a it's a very concerted attempt to leave islam out of that matrix the sort of the official reason given for this act has been is is to give shelter to religious minorities you know the irony here is that you know you have for example india borders now mind their borders burma in ridge you know you have been doing the so during your for example not included in the ambit of this bill the
1:22 pm
tamils of sri lanka you know one other another minority group that have suffered genocide are not included in the ambit of this bill so you know this bill is really playing to the ruling party the baraka sort of party bring about 30 seconds on a practical level how many migrants are expected to come in and i'm going to worry about how they're going to be dealt with we're going to go yes on. you know so the b.g.p. has gone all over the place at one point to see very few megan's are going to come in because you know there are some skids that fear being one by one of these you make mince and some other point this year there we expect a lot of migrants to come in because of their domestic beef so we don't nor right now you know it in all of india that's a big part of you know the story right now that is there is confusion within the government that is not clear messaging on what the end of this bill are other than to call a raise in the ok so we can leave it there sure daniella news editor of a website scroll down to maybe find about wars happen to this university or not
1:23 pm
