4:03 pm
people on the streets of cobble tons of the taliban rule here before. and they didn't rule in the people's interest what people think that they will act the same . we're worried there is fighting everywhere in the provinces of fooling day by day . the government should do something. the people are facing lots of problems. well, meanwhile, and initial deployment of us forces has arrived and cobbled for protective actuating american embassies off with most of the $3000.00 total troops for that mission expected. in the coming days, when the pentagon was asked whether these soldiers could go into combat, it warned that any attack on us forces would be met with an appropriate response. for these 3000 us troops going to cobble is this a combat deployment. i didn't sleep on that question lucas? i thought i answered it pretty well. yesterday when you do inter john, john, these soldiers and marines, they're fully kidded out putting on night vision goggles landing,
4:04 pm
and carnival team positions at the airport. they're going to a combat zone. are they not? they're certainly going into harm's way. lucas and lucas. they will have the right of self defense. they will be armed. if there is an attack upon our forces. our commanders have now and always have had the right and responsibility to defend themselves in any attack on our forces in afghanistan will be met swiftly with a forceful and an appropriate response. a british forces are also withdrawing for the country's defense secretary's already gravely willing that i've got a thought on the brink of collapse school in the us decision. a mistake and want to tell about a melissa, clearly have momentum across the country and i've got to start is heading towards civil war. predicting to that the battle scarred nation will again become a breeding ground for kinder reporting next from outside, the british defense ministry. he shouted and was dusting. well, all options on the table is the latest from the u. k. is defense secretary friend
4:05 pm
wallace, as he tries to prevent an all out civil war enough on the stone is the u. k. begins to retreat troops out of the country. now, ever since us taliban peace still. what we've seen is nature that we have all begun to retrieve what flashes this power political vacuum in the region, seeing the tale around totally taking control and tipping that balance of power. now not only will a poverty of course increase on political destabilization, but what's a key worry is terrorism could also still be on the rise. and that's why you case. defendant secretary is now saying that pulling out of the region is a huge mistake. now we're in this position where we have plenty to manage across the country. the united states are leaving. that was an honest yesterday we are leaving alongside them. and that leaves a, as you say, a very, very big problem on the ground developing with the taliban failed states around the world lead to instability lead to
4:06 pm
a security threat to off on our interest. we were very clear about that. that's why the, the west has to learn that you don't fix problems, you manage problems. pro button wallace has also said that the united kingdom may act if ask on a stone again began to hob, a terrorism, particularly if it pose an international threat like it did arguably some 18 years ago. but many onto war activists argue that the foreign policy has never been found to humanitarian mission, nor was it about democracy and only ever saw the land become the place of conflict and battle ground giving rise to the taliban. and what was see now is this tale around all accelerating the dominant. many areas are now falling to the tale bomb as a particular ring around kabul. at this point, many people question and all of you, whether or not the type i will go directly to try and seize kabul and according to the united nations, the gun war has now entered his war, dead on destructive phase with casualties, climbing over one and a half
4:07 pm
a 1000 in the past 4 weeks alone. and all of this really has cause a lot of anger. here in britain, even with many m. p, some of which have even served in the connie occupation over the last 20 is them incredibly angry and ology that pulling out is a complete mistake and a huge failure. the operation broke was worse. it took families apart, left children orphans and parents to cry alone. the decision to withdraw is like a rug pulled from under the seat of our partners. that's why i'm angry. it's wasteful and unnecessary. and why is it personal? because i've seen what it costs and what sacrifices are being thrown away. and i know who's going to pay for it. we will what it's actually a pretty desperate time for the united kingdom is actually sending in around $600.00 troops to try and get british nationals out. see out a short term basis rescue mission if you like. but for those in afghanistan,
4:08 pm
both systems simply call and guess how this is incredibly, a tragic and scary time for all of them as taliban relentlessly takes over. but ultimately, for nato allies, britain and america, the last 20 years ending up like this is incredibly humiliating because they try to rebuild that on stabilize the region. and now it seems as though with the telephone take over, the country could be worse off than us. as the us lead alliance withdraws, i've got national to help the foreign troops now here reprisal from the town about a group of i've gotten sued. assistant u. k. forces right in on the streets of cub old, the morning, protection from the british government. 600 british troops have been deployed to protect you, came nationals as they evacuate, as well as port location of former staff. we spoke to a full, i've got interpreter work for british and and sauces. he's asked to remain anonymous to fear for his life. my family has listed to it's in the past,
4:09 pm
sometime my family home was attacked twice. my father has been given warnings and threats many, many times my. my dad's name was called that his life will be severely at risk because she offered not one but 2 of her son's guest, the italian recently, one of the interpreter. his father was caught in buck pia, a province. he was beaten very badly and he was asked to ask his son, who will, who is an interpreter, to come in trace the it should be a cause of detail. upon recently, one of the interpreter who used to be an interpreter for the american special forces was assassinated when he turned to the interpreters who have served for years and years or stems enough kindness tracing risk and benches. however,
4:10 pm
do you could government instead of serving deadlines, bringing them to live in peace and safety with their kids or they are making excuses and new conditions put in place only to reject their cases. all i'm hearing from my colleagues is the big cases have been rejected, rejected. there was a number of cases which were told that they were good to go. there were even given in there was sent an email confirming that when they were ready for the flights, they are told that they cannot dictate to the u. k. i n, my brother, book of sorted took to for the coalition forces. my brothers still enough to understand the british government is making false accusations and excuses to withhold. not only my brothers visa,
4:11 pm
but many of the interpreters who genuinely need the british governance help and are very high risk or strongly believe the detail above 100 down. every or an interpreter who's so if the partition american forces, it will be the african interpreters or who paid the ultimate course. as a conflict sharpens to you and warns that nearly 400000 civilians already fled their homes is here with a particular spike. since may many heading to couple to flee the taliban, but are living in the extremely precarious conditions or just some of the heart wrenching stories from refugee. i have been displaced from telecom. the taliban killed my son. they took all the belongings from my house and set fire to demonstrate the punch me in the mouth, causing my teeth to fall out. they demanded my son and i told them that he's a school teacher. she recently became a teacher and had not even received his salary yet, had a class has broke out and we were taken hostage in the fighting,
4:12 pm
went on for about 6 to 7 days. and we couldn't go outside to do anything we managed to escape. and now where displaced the slave guns who seek a solemn may not be welcome. in the e. you either were the block county loggerheads or what to do with refugees fleeing violence? next art is paul asleep. delves into what exactly happened to brussels open door policy. european union is split what to do with african refugees seeking, assign them in the letter to the european commission, civil countries insisted they have the right to force to be deport those whose cases have been rejected. they vote that not to deport them, would motivate more refugees, to flee to europe. we would like to highlight the need to perform returns both voluntary and non voluntary to afghan. a stan stopping return sends the wrong signal and is likely to motivate even more afghan citizen to leave their home for
4:13 pm
the e. u. the situation in afghanistan is deterioration by the all when it comes to the us and nato prepaid to what's called a troops at the end of the month. after decades long war, the situation is so bad that the netherlands, germany, and france have decided to port the deportation. at least for now. the situation in afghanistan is likely to change and events for the coming period are so uncertain that i have decided to introduce a more atoria on deputation decisions and departures. grease or stress belgian and denmark standing. they want the rejected, assign them because the e u is not really and does not have the capacity to kind of another major migration crisis. why having us, as guns are waiting, make up around 10 percent of asylum seekers. they're the 2nd largest group after syrian and for a continent still scarred by the migration crisis of 56 years ago. there was
4:14 pm
a feeling of a who, a feeling of having been they before, that has your opinions worried. they might be on the verge of a fish refugee crisis. those people who are here from a gun is done, they are not migrant. there's a few yeast and asylum seeker. and that is why it is very important to remember at all. western countries have signed humour a convention refugee convention, and they are duty bound to has anyone, not only of guns, but syrians are anybody who come to the, to their country? and as far as how long, because you are in the country are any conflict personnel tech to, to their life. so i think then the western countries say, oh, we don't care if a wonder if you just go home or you for them. i think this is
4:15 pm
a violation of humor. right. and we should do that kind of thing. still to come. a tragedy has struck the western russia video vote on it as a public boss exploded, killing 2 people in the hearing 20 other. we take a closer look off of the break i use what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy foundation, let it be an arms race is often very dramatic. development only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical of time. time to sit down and talk
4:16 pm
me the me, the problem on the death failing is that it forces them to admit what that number is like am 3 or 2, which are the money supply numbers. once the numbers got so scary, they stop reporting them. similarly with the debt ceiling kabuki theater, that happens every couple of years. they're just going to get rid of it won't even announce that number. it will be impossible to find what the american is. i'll just say a number sign for infinity. ah . ok. the criminal has explained its refusal to extend an invitation to bbc's veteran moscow correspondent as a symmetrical response to which an alleged discrimination the brushing reporters
4:17 pm
that the u. k. broadcasted out the decision to expel sarah rainsford, who's been a job for the past 7 years. ortiz, he goes on, she has lights on the control. essentially, the russian foreign ministry has refused to renew the work resolved. well, sir, rainsford, a correspondent with b. b. c. him in russia, and she will apparently have to leave the country by the end of this month. already but according to the spokeswoman of the russian foreign ministry murray, as a honda, they took this step in response to the actions of the you case for an office, have a listen. the anglo saxon media group dismissed multiple warnings by the russian foreign ministry, that relevant measures would be taken in response to london's fees that put downs target. and the russian correspondent in the u. k. were published statements on a regular basis or for in the british side to stop prosecute in russia, journalists. so here's the thing, the so called tenants of reciprocity has long been
4:18 pm
a cornerstone of russian diplomacy. in fact, for the past several years, in plain terms, it means that if any country in the world takes hostile steps against russia, something that russia doesn't feel is just and doesn't feel it's right than russia and moscow reserve the right to respond accordingly to basically mirror the actions and do something very, very similar. so this is what the russian foreign ministry is saying happening with . well, sarah range forward. according to the russian foreign ministry, several russian journalists back in 2019, failed to get work visas in the u. k. but one of them, for example, didn't, i didn't have the visa renewed and another one simply didn't get one at all. and so for the past several years since 2019 the russian foreign ministry, russian diplomats have been pointing at these situations to the u. k. authorities saying that this wasn't right, but that all, all of that i should say fell on deaf ears. and so russia has decided to take this
4:19 pm
step. at least this is the position of the russian foreign ministry. and of course, the b, b. c is quite better, they've called this step and attack on the freedom of press. they've also called this. they've also urged the russian foreign ministry to reconsider their decision . and also the pledge to, to well reporting on russia's affairs impartially. but when russian journalists weren't allowed to work on the u. k. soil, that was all fine. it was fine for years. it wasn't an attack on the freedom of press. but when the b, b, c, probably the face of the u. k. jo, pleasant all over the world gets stung and gets swell. the same treatment gets the same dose of the same medicine that's different. let's get reaction now from journalist morrison summers for more on this modern thanks for joining us. good. having a program today. this is cool is quite a bit of control the see in the world of journalism, hasn't it? what's your assessment of the situation is a parent tit for tat expulsion?
4:20 pm
well, it's really sad. so it's both countries are engaged in this role. the childish game and i take on board what the previous correspondence was saying is that russian journalistic operating in britain not been getting raises. and of course, at some point was going to be rest of, you know, reciprocal action on that. but of course, what really going on here is, you know, the poor relations between russia and on the west, and particularly the british. and of course, you know, some journalists, previous journalists working in russia and been very hostile. and lou calling springs to melinda, work for the guardian, through the very, very close to western intelligence services, and frankly, involved in creating disinformation what the recent circle revelation of what happened in a meeting where, where people,
4:21 pm
president putin and others discussed getting president from elected in in the us, which looks like a fabrication to me. and it's not surprising that he was removed from moscow some years ago. but, you know, in a way it's regrettable because what will be happening is journalist from britain not be able to go to russia. and report on june was from russia to be able to come to britain and report. but that's not where we're at. is it? where to take the writing story at face value and believe this has been going on since 2019, when i was rushing journalists were actually denied visa though. i mean, why is this for a drug on, for so long? why didn't moscow in london give them the time, couldn't come up with some sort of compromise and avoid this situation when the russian form and you said it's repeatedly warned the u. k. thought about this alleged prosecution of its own. unless, well, you've got to think about it from a sort of psychological warfare point of view from the,
4:22 pm
from the western side. what they want to see in media is lots and lots of discussion about how bad russia is. so you got the defend ms defender sales in that dispute. it was, is there's got to be some fancy russian media story every week. in that sense, in a state, you can argue that the russians are playing into their hands, their boy, you know, she's not just knowing of these renewed. but on the other hand, it's because the relations also pool that we reach this point. and you know, this is, you know, we need to do something to, to, to improve relations. but so it's hard to see was when there's such a loss of ingrained hostility, mostly on the western side, i mean, they won't, they won't rusher as an enemy. and they make that pretty clear the bbc said this
4:23 pm
expulsion or rather the, the lack of extension of serene with visa violates free speech. audi itself that has been denied you can credit station for multiple international events that cause no such outrage, no such uproar. why do you think the dual response? well, i mean most people in the west will be unaware that brushing journalists have been denied jesus. so you may have been reported in the major in russia, but in the west, most people will be totally unaware. the 2nd place, so they then, you know, the situation when they get a completely one sided view of what's going on. and it just adds to the general, well, there's, there's a really bad atmosphere between, between russia and ourselves. and of course, you've got the other do elections coming up in september in russia, which of course, again, most people in the west or socially aware of the media doesn't even discuss it. because of course, the emissions being presented. russia doesn't have elections. russia is
4:24 pm
a dictatorship, of course, in a more rational world, would all be having a very interesting discussion about what, what was the election is going to show them that's not the image of the what of russia was presented in mainstream. what's the media more than someone, thanks for your time here. that the program good to have you with us. kit explosion has ripped through a public class in the western russia situ, veronica killing. 2 people injuring 20 others. and i witness who rushed to help us tell us what he saw. one but us lot a minute. a minutes after the blast i her children, scream, people please help. i need to rush to the bus and jumped in through the window which had already been shattered. once inside, i saw an 11 or 12 year old girl. she was stuck between 2 seats. at that moment the guy came to help me. first we got the girl out. i'm sure her ribs were broken given
4:25 pm
how tightly she had been stuck. he made several attempts to stand her rope when she couldn't and started falling off to her, i'll go back on the bus. there was a woman in a green dress. her legs were severely hurt, her legs had been blown off to above the knees. we took her out and puts her on the ground. it was appalling inside. you could see legs, body parts scattered around, but you don't focus on that as you battled to save human lives. a human life is the most precious thing on us. i didn't analyze anything at the moment of rushing to help. i acted instinctively. what self can you do when you hear children screaming, moaning my heart told me to do that. i understand this was shock, ordinary people, they'd seek to avoid such things. i've been to war on sort of used to it. i helped and went hung the morning. the following report begins with st. camera footage of the actual blast and can things some distressing images where you can see there a split 2nd before the incident. then the brief flying out from all sides,
4:26 pm
followed by fire. at the time it's believe the bus at around $35.00 passengers on board. the blast went off some who could still move, managed to flee the see. further distressing him issues of explosions show an injured person. long on the ground among the debris. rational thought he opened the criminal pro but looking into a number of possible explanations with no bush and singled out so far off. he's done a quarter has been following the tragic events often. as you can see behind me, whatever was left of the blast has already been cleaned up. traffic is already moving normally on the street. again. you can also see behind me a bench where there are some flowers, this is the bus station right next to where the explosion take took place. people put flowers, they are overnight in memory of those who died in this tragic event. now, as for what caused this explosion, the investigative committee is looking at several different theory. so the main version it's looking at is that either the diesel boss was filled with the wrong fuel or a gas cylinder had exploded on board. there were other people that were saying that
4:27 pm
the driver per potentially was being negligent and that it was his fault. while the police have said that, an earlier theory that it was a terrorist attack has now been deemed unlikely. projectiles such as pieces of wire or nails. things usually used and explosive devices were not found. those injured but mostly hand by fragments of flying glass. however, the chance that it could be an explosive device can still not be ruled out. right before the bus exploded. it was fully filled all with a total of $35.00 people on board. 2 people were killed, one of which was a woman who brutally had her legs blown off in the explosion. it was certainly a tragic thing to see as the driver explained, after the fact miss diane and the phone, we were still people would get on the bus, the traffic light turned red. people go on from the cross walk. i started driving off then the last happened, broken glass smoke. i couldn't understand what happened. people helped to evacuate
4:28 pm
others. there are people who are seriously injured. shortly after this tragedy took place, the regions governor called for a full inspection of the entire regions public transport vehicle. now that inspection has since concluded, and it came up with no new problems connected to any of the regions the transport vehicle. but again, like i said, this investigation is continuing, its continuing to try to find out what exactly cause this explosion. and we'll bring our viewers the latest details as they become available for getting away just a few moments time. we're back in half an hour. the latest join us again. me ah, me one. make sure, you know, board is blind to tease. emerge, we don't have authority. we don't actually,
4:29 pm
the whole world needs to take action and be ready. people who judge governors crisis, we can do better. we should be better. everyone is contributing each in their own way, but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenges for the response has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we need together in the i think is part of mental health revolution. we increasingly freeze political claims, psychological language and mental health became more common. so if you disagree or something i said on this program, just say i disagree with you,
4:30 pm
i think you're wrong because of the following problems in your adventure logic. you say your micro grass mate, you say you triggered me. you said you harmed me again from psychological way because those are psychological terms. and i've got an enormous problem for politics because it's almost impossible to have a discourse on that terrain. the british and american governments have often been accused of destroying lives in their own interest. what you see in this, these techniques, is the state devising message to end to essentially destroy personality of an individual lifetime. means this is how one doctors, theories were allegedly used in psychological warfare against the prisoners deemed a danger to the state. that was the foundation for the method of psychological
