8:05 pm
a reaction to a very recent decision by the u.s. department of justice to set a deadline for our team america our u.s. brands to register as a foreign agent and we were forced to obey because otherwise we would have been in trouble with the u.s. law but it in any case as a foreign agent our t. america will now face enormous challenges and difficulties something our editor in chief called unbearable conditions for a media organization aimed at destroying our seat this brings us to why we're seeing all this hostility against russian media in the u.s. that's because of accusations of russian meddling in the us presidential race according to american journalists that are traveling with donald trump on his plane mr trump did bring this issue up during his few chats with a lot of our putin at the apex. and here's
8:06 pm
a quote from donald trump that they shared every time he sees me he says i didn't do that and i really believe that when he tells me that he means it i think he's very insulted by it going back to vladimir putin's press conference here's how he addressed the many russia related investigations inquiries hearings that are simply nonstop in america from the get go i think that everything regarding the russian dossier in the us has to do with an ongoing internal political standoff it's simply parts of the desire to use anything in the fight against the current president despite this internal political standoff in the us a lot of our putin said as he did many times before that moscow is ready to turn the page and look into the future for the benefit of both the russians and americans. despite the poor state of relations between moscow and the west at the
8:07 pm
moment the second day of the apec summit did see some positive moments for example the russian and american presidents released a joint statement on the situation in syria they both confirmed their determination to defeat i still in syria while insisting that syria is a sovereign country the president's also agreed there can be no military solution to the conflict while adding the final political settlement should be found through the geneva negotiations format adit additionally they affirmed their commitment to syria's unity and said they will not let it be divided into three years of influence russia promised to work with iran to remove pro iranian forces from some parts of the country british i mean finch says cooperation between russia and the us is essential to resolving the crisis. what they're talking about is getting closer together and we're going on diplomatic solutions to problems not just in the middle east but around the world the fact is if we have an america bearing nuzzi to each other that does nobody any good if all of the sides involved understand that
8:08 pm
a medical and russia and the rest of the countries from the west are actually on the same side eventually there has to be a rapprochement and they have to understand that they will have to work together it's not going to be easy because these things never are particularly in the middle east course it will have to happen and it's a good sign that america and russia have consumed the standing on this a much anticipated formal meeting between the two presidents never happened yet the pair did bump into each other more than once.
8:09 pm
plans to create a six branch of the u.s. military a special space corps have been rejected by lawmakers the proposal had initially been passed by the house of representatives back in july but lawmakers have now decided to exclude it from the final seven hundred billion dollars budget for the upcoming year the bill was amended so that any american military space activities
8:10 pm
will be controlled by the u.s. air force and as morongo as dave reports air force commanders love the idea. little did you know this week may well go down in history the pentagon's announced it's weaponize ng space job one for an air force and an air component is to gain and maintain air superiority freedom from attack and freedom to maneuver unlike space superiority it's not an american birthright yet a resource that plan for the fight for it and when it the hints were all there almost a decade ago one hundred and seventy eight countries voted on the u.n. resolution to prevent a space arms race only two countries abstained the u.s. and israel washington also blocked a joint russian chinese effort to ban all weapons in space after all who's
8:11 pm
to say what is a weapon. any object orbiting or transiting through space can be a weapon if that object is intentionally placed onto a collision course with another space object this makes treaty verification impossible yet they keep saying that everything they do has a peaceful purpose take the x. s. y. and the spacecraft. a jet that could put satellites into orbit on the cheap probably means if you can take a satellite into orbit it can also take our hostile satellite out of orbit who's going to stop them there. last year the us put several mysterious satellites into orbit not your usual
8:12 pm
kind of ones that watch earth know these apparently monitor other spacecraft friendly neighborhood watch. the u.s. is not seeking to weaponize space our goal is to work with all responsible spacefaring nations to ensure a safe secure and stable space environment the u.s. air force is x. thirty seven b. which has spent almost two years orbiting the earth its purpose is classified its mission is classified its budget is classified. then you've got the various kinetic bombardment and global strike projects that the pentagon is reportedly pursuing they'll probably say that those a peaceful to sue peaceful in the pentagon the space budget was doubled last year
8:13 pm
from five to ten billion and next year it's going up this year's budget increases the eighteen budget proposal increases what the air force is is proposing to spend on space by twenty percent and we're shifting to space as a war fighting to me just think of the message these sends ready set arms race bruce coordinator of the global network against weapons and nuclear power in space things that militarizing outer space is a dangerous trend at the u.s. space command headquarters in colorado springs colorado. outside the building on their headquarters building above the door they have their logo that read master page for this idea that the u.s. will be. one country on the earth that will control space and thus
8:14 pm
control the earth below is very provocative very dangerous and very destabilizing over the years of russia and china go into the united nations repeatedly and said look let's create a new treaty that bans all weapons in space the u.s. and israel have for years repeatedly block the development of a treaty to prevent an arms race and outer space clearly you noted states has no intention whatsoever in preventing an arms race in space. videos been released of an unexploded rocket reportedly fired by saudi forces laying in the streets of the yemeni capital the head of the bomb disposal team claims the rocket was likely targeting a police academy in the area it comes just a day after saudi led airstrikes hit the defense ministry there it's feared there

8:16 pm
denies the accusations then iranian markings on the business. it's been demonstrated. there are pictures that take that to me that connects the dots to iran in terms of who's supplying the missiles and that capability of someone i am going to that was we do not even have the ability to transfer. the missiles and they've managed to increase the missiles range and iran analyst and director of the international center for human rights are to share is ours that i believe is yemen proof civilians are paying a high price for the game saudi arabia and iran are playing in the middle east both contraries are trying to be the kings of the middle east you are wrong and so do i read. in saddam on only to declare that iran is impossible so i can't predict that they will come up with
8:17 pm
a result but that's the best strategy for civilians in yemen and even in the area. football world cup host russia's narrowly lost to one of the tournament favorites argentina and a friendly at the newly revamped luzhniki stadium daniel hawkins was following the match but the brutally cold wet weather here in moscow didn't dampen the fun spirit states and now it's all mass to see this spectacle of football at a new look refurbished revamped stadium and some of the much itself those hoping for a goal first with this importance of the one goal coming violates all in the game from my gross especially bouts from all those from an offside position but russia despite struggling in midfield especially attack words pushovers in the second off they did play but they created some songs from counter attacks on occasion threatening the hours of time goal as well so low there is much to improve on before next year certainly there are some positives to take away well now we came
