how would i find. it is a call to dream anything which i think's true. it's a problem in the for. the united states not looking to be. in conflict with russia. us with sanctions in retaliation for. a week of on rest in the u.s. state of minnesota where the police killing of. continues to rage.
11:01 am
a c.n.n. director secretly filmed admitting his china will spread propaganda despite the network slogan is the most trusted name in news. with today's headlines and those that shaped the week welcome to the weekly here. this week another low point in u.s. relations as both countries unleashed sanctions on each other moscow expelled 10 u.s. diplomats from russia and the acting american ambassador to go home. the latest attack country by divided ministration cannot. it seems that washington does not want to accept the fact that in the new geo political realities there is no
11:02 am
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 those 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
11:03 am
promoting america's anti 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 6 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 america said they were going to do as regards sanctions what was said on thursday well you have to look at the fact up
11:04 am
to this hostile undiplomatic rhetoric coming from the white house of course now the infamous interview including 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 that package includes of $32.00 russian entities an individual sanction for allegedly interference in last year's presidential election stateside a range of financial and technology firms targeted for power and 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 when 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
11:05 am
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 said it's rather what washington says and what washington does. 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 in disastrous consequences for those who decide on such provocations so clearly normalize. relations between the u.s. and russia are going to require a serious shift in syria but at the moment it does definitely sound that whilst moscow of course doesn't want it to terrorists and relations and it's tried everything it can to avoid that at the moment it feels that that might be the only
11:06 am
option left well meantime russia also expressed its protests to the czech republic which is ultimately follow the u.s. lead and expelling russian diplomats 18 were told to leave the country on saturday now prague is blaming russia for a shoot explosion at an ammunition depot that happened in 24 team. moscow strongly denies all the allegations. the accusations are absurd especially as early as the czech government laid the blame for the explosions at the door of the companies that own the depo so this hostile step is a continuation of a serious event of russian actions conducted over the last several years by the czech republic one cannot also fail to notice the american influence by trying to win washington's favor as the u.s. imposes sanctions against russia the czech all sorts he's haven't done their american mostest. meanwhile there was an intriguing development when czech police
11:07 am
revealed they're looking for 2 russian suspects in connection with the explosion and the pair already have quite a reputation i think previously been accused by the u.k. of the novacek attack on their script pals back in 2018 meanwhile moscow has vowed to respond to prague's expulsion of the 18 diplomats and to a political analyst says the accusations need to be backed up with hard evidence. in my view it is at least possible that the explosion has virtually nothing to do with russian interference of you and the czech republic knows about it at least we have to assume this possibility that it has just been used as ammunition against russia at this point of time what is right now is that is just a suspicion or is there evidence before such evidence has been presented in that
11:08 am
convincingly way we have to assume that we are dealing with yet another diplomatic crisis between the western european and also america indirectly involved partners and russia and there is just the geopolitical rearm which offers are really explained agents. while unveiling their latest raft of sanctions the u.s. also cited claims made last year or russia offering bounties to the taliban to kill american troops in afghanistan the white house admitted more than once it had very little information to back up those claims but it is nevertheless demanding answers from the crapper. 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
11:09 am
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 offered taliban linked militants money to kill american soldiers and $29.00 seen the allegations that were never proven on the pentagon said more than once it could not corroborate the reports but certainly did not stop the mainstream media from embracing the and tie a story. vladimir putin is offering boaties 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 or russia rejected all the allegations with the foreign ministry branding them the speculations on phobias of the u.s. intelligence community we called to take over former u.s.
11:10 am
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 that it's not intelligence it's been it's clear sized information as opposed to hard intelligence that the united states and russia are adults they they they they sit at the big table they were big boys 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 a 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
11:11 am
makers about what ground truth in russia is. and has been a week of angry unrest in the u.s. state of minnesota follows last sunday's fatal shooting by police of dante wright a riot officers have been resorting to take acid and a rush of bullets to disperse the protesters. the. brooklyn center police claim that dante wright died as a result of an accidental discharge after an officer mistook her gun for
11:12 am
a taser but peaceful protests soon descended into looting and violent clashes with police. protests were also seen in other cities including chicago dallas on portland where the police and union building were set ablaze the scenes were certainly reminiscent of those in the wake of george floyd's death last year his killing sparked a wave of nationwide protests we spoke with radio host wayne dupree who served as a board member on the national diversity coalition for donald trump he says is vital now 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 on both sides of the aisle. and when i mean both sides and there's
11:13 am
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. they are doing because of what they see projected on our media every knee there has to be a concerted effort from both sides of leadership leadership of people there everybody can trust to sit down and work out proven solutions and and take it all types of suggestions and try to work on something and bring the trust back between law enforcement and the communities. this week banned the found of investigative journalism group project veritas for alleged violations of its policies however it comes off to the group published yet another on the cup a sting video involving a c.n.n. director. a strange disease eternally teaching hate like
11:14 am
a people are getting hacked or is it just a picture that you need to protect patients. and certainly what. we're trying to like health like a b.l.m. like today like i mean it's individuals it's not a you know. that's like going to 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 the 3rd undercover scoop published by project eric haas just
11:15 am
this week want to know more about the other revelations here's our correspondent bottled korda. 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 a network admin did to deliberately spreading propaganda well apparently they did i do. believe that it was. but again we were creating stories we didn't know anything about. that's b.s. i think that 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 spilled the beans over
11:16 am
a tender date he was enticed into by an undercover project veritas journalist and 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 calling 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. mccain. you know. him and you say here she. hates him is a. young. tree. that sounds a lot like election meddling something c.n.n. has pointed the finger at russia for time and time again blaming on unverifiable
11:17 am
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 c.n.n. that scare defends immunised from any responsibility because nobody takes them
11:18 am
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 simple their ratings are plummeting those who want 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 on nimby level distrust with with vaccine an advocacy vaccine malpractise with this anyway and years nothing for them to build up. you are watching out international good of you to show your sunday with us here in moscow
11:19 am
still to come after the break french lawmakers pasta controversial security bill ultimately penalizing the spread of shooters. and the rest of the story.
11:20 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. dramatic looking only. exists i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical. it is good to have you with us today for the program a controversial security bill has been passed by the french and additional powers to various law enforcement bodies but has faced widespread criticism for making it
11:21 am
harder to call out. more details now with our correspondents to ski. 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 journalists who says 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 the 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 does take a mind though over the protests against article 24.
11:22 am
well the government said it was 3 writing that article completely but as it's been posted a there are elements still of being criticized by many school $24.00 in the bill that was posted a bipolar menteri and still contains limits on who can and call and publish images over the police if they use images that publish with an intent to harm physically or mentally one of those offices on g t 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
11:23 am
a pretty severe penalty for that but it wasn't just. article 24 that caused concern this no 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 offices to carry their weapons even when they are off duty some have described this move as essentially making roads a dysfunctional democracy. 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 but i think security is as important as it is true but there are people who abuse it the harm is not for freedom itself people and not freedom to cause harm to the continent you need to think if there
11:24 am
are other tools that would be more consistent with the principle of human freedom the right to protest is our rights spying on people and it's not just about concern on the streets here in france i knew when panel of experts also raised 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 parliament ariens 75 voting for it 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's the last decision will be made as to whether this bill will become the. italian
11:25 am
business owners took their anger at. continued lockdowns on to the streets this week demanding restrictions on lifted saying they simply can't afford to stay closed and the clashes broke out at one of the protests in rome. the rally was organized by the eye open movement which wants to get the country
11:26 am
back to work however it was also joined by a group whose members threw smoke bombs on. one protester injured another one arrested italy has. most regions after an easter lockdown but restaurants will remain closed at least until the end of april we understand only take out all delivery services operated for the. pandemic concerns of a different kind of a post on the italian island of sicily locals are showing a high level of distrust in the astra zeneca vaccine injection according to the region's president up to 80 percent of the salience refuse to get inoculated with that job over safety is not led to an accumulation of some 100001 used doses the authorities have tried encouraging locals to get vaccinated by scrapping the need for any appointments well we hit the streets solve so cillizza speak to the local. well you know 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
11:27 am
preferred not to risk my health so it's apparent that the it's due to bad communication and one case in a 1000000 isn't a big deal. the result was the possibility of a narrow set of the virus is more dangerous than the vax and i would prefer to get vaccinated you know that would look there have been many deaths we don't know if this is related to the vaccine or not we're afraid at the moment i don't want to take the astra zeneca shot out probably wait for sputnik the right on but all the vaccines have trolls and comes there is no time to waste we have to get back to normality. or what i just about to show you what stories shape the week for the weekly here on international we are back at the top of the hour with more of your weekly highlights thanks for joining us. well look forward to talking to you all that technology should work for people. i
