8:08 am
a number of strategic towns but throughout all of these months the united states europe had been demanding calling for a cease fire yesterday at 6 o'clock in the morning 31st of august a cease fire was unilaterally called by syria its forces stopped everywhere no more offensive maneuvers its air force was grounded unilateral cease fire backed by russia backed by turkey a few hours after the cease fire took place 2 cold the united states carried out a wave of air strikes on where it says it was targeting an al qaeda training camp russian intelligence russian the russian military on the other hand says what they hit was a number of settlements populated areas and left a lot of casualties there are multiple victims within populated areas but were targeted by the u.s. air strike it was carried out in violation of all agreements as washington failed
8:09 am
to inform russia or turkey about its intentions united states was saying it was targeting. members who were threats to u.s. citizens to allies and to innocent civilians but that there's this aside from the fact that you know the basically undermine the ceasefire because the jar just became confused they started shooting at the syrian army the syrian army didn't shoot back the russians but aside from that there's also the fact that this was russia say very unprofessional because there's a procedure in place whatever you carry out in their strike in syria you warn turkey russia the united states whoever this is. to avoid unnecessary escalations risks in the air the united states knew that there was a ceasefire taking hold just a few hours before and the didn't inform the russia. that it was going to carry out these strikes which leaves both countries with a lot of questions meanwhile the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov has said
8:10 am
both moscow and ankara will stick to the arrangements regarding the deescalation zone despite the strike we've asked the u.s. department of defense to comment on the matter but no answer yet political analysts who say aram thinks the u.s. ought to have notified russia and turkey at a time when the regime had hoped to deescalate and called for a unilateral cease fire which was greatly welcomed by turkey and russia this type of attack that he does cause concern could have been carried out at a more ideal time it could have been carried out in cooperation with the russians and the turks which would have probably made the attack even more successful and more acceptable on behalf of all parties keep it a secret when it serves everybody's interests that still remains a question to me but yes it definitely does cause concern when there is all this talk of a cease fire in the region to see drums about bombs dropping back out of the sky again in civilians obviously concerned in causing more migration north.
8:11 am
the u.k. is more divided than ever over breck's it saturday saw tens of thousands take to the streets in cities across the country after prime minister boris johnson announced he'd suspend parliament ahead of the e.u. divorce deadline that decision means m.p.'s will have less time to debate and therefore influence the way the u.k. leaves the e.u. well some see it as the only way to get back at our goal line others say it's undemocratic are to taylor has more. boris johnson is being well boris he's being bold as brass and he wants breakfast come what may rather. what you do when parliament won't play ball you suspend it he needed her majesty's permission to do that which he thought we don't get a week into october the 31st before getting on with our plans to take this country forward we are going to have a queen's speech and we're going to do it all october 14th and we've got to move
8:12 am
ahead with a new program but why don't the lawmakers a quick refresher if you've been avoiding the news because you just can't take the b. word anymore for number 10 talent a reason may who's currently getting away from it all hiking in the swiss alps spent 3 years trying to deliver after the referendum something we are definitely clear on bricks it means bricks it bricks it needs threats it wrecks it means bricks it and we're going to make a success of it but parliament had other ideas perpetually shouting have doubt even what have her key points had her reaching for her water then she found that brussels wasn't very happy about how to bit adhere to old blighty and wouldn't budge on key points like the irish backstop to maintain a seamless border on the emerald isle they managed to thrash out a deal though and may tried 3 times to push it through parliament no luck so she shared a tear and left i do so with no ill will but with enormous and enduring
8:13 am
gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country i love. and to boris johnson. and leave can figurehead johnson promise to take the u.k. out of the european union by how do we do you know deal and that's really riled so where are we now well just 2 months from b j and with parliament due to be suspended before it's. got going and peace will only have to meet to try to knock a new deal brant said everyone's crying foul saying it's a constitutional crisis others though have just had enough he's gone on for so don't now we just need to get on with it because it's just causing more trouble whole process is discussed to. parliament has been bypassed and is. not democratic it's a catastrophe so anybody who tried to bring it in would be called to disaster
8:14 am
anyway we should get what the people voted for i think it's still a constitutional outrage he wants to see. you know when. you know it's important to you know blame any problems and he will be patted on the back for delivering bricks and win an election that's what he sees boris johnson should do everything he can economy to get back to if you can't get it through then he's out . where he cynics point out that what's really on democratic all m.p.'s in westminster spending 3 years and piles of taxpayers' money by dithering over to leg breck said ok perhaps it was middle road to disrupt the queen's summer holiday in scotland and maybe suspending parliament was quite drastic for what's supposed to be a parliamentary democracy that's apparently taking back control but then this is boris johnson who's never been one for the convention and it has been 3 years already
8:15 am
just about every hour for new explored every negotiation tactic used every amendment can sit it so maybe just maybe it's going to get his way and bill days britain away from brussels altie london. commemorations for the 80th anniversary of the beginning of world war 2 are taking place in slovenia that story and more after the break. you know world a big part of the law and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that made stream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops
8:16 am
the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. when it comes down to it it is not actually that i think one can say oh well the russians are all bad certainly is not the case that the west is only good there are absolutely things that the west needs to be doing and what i would like to see is much much less totally counterproductive rhetorical struggles we see against russia that it's you know it's it's become an easy way of getting certain the audiences to approach you is to come up with cheap russian bashing that helps no one. welcome back to the weekly french rare lost his fight to protect people in his village from pesticides although he banned their use
8:17 am
a court over ruled him and he's now appealing that decision however his case has inspired other mayors across france to take some more action. reports. this tiny breton village of language has found itself at the center of controversy in the battle over the pesticides in may the local mag to court some saw as being a bold decision to ban the use of pesticides within $150.00 metre cordon over the village farming unions were furious on the matter and did up in court now the man daniel coeff had his ban overturned but the debacle is now shining a light on the deep political contradictions so rounding pesticides in france well president might call and praised his intentions for tackling like phosphates a burning issue over health concerns he said the solution was not to issue a decree that doesn't comply with the law so macko if that's
8:18 am
a double standard. i don't understand what is happening in my craw and the ecology minister said that i am right and doing a good thing to protect my people but in the meantime i am facing court for a decision to keep pesticides at a distance of 150 metres i don't understand politics now it seems the decision by the court has banned all pesticides was illegal is also earning good residence in this usually sleepy village. shown to children on wit lots of fields around long where and it's important health matter for us especially for children we breed the in the press the sites we did your intestine the amount of best decides we found was alarmingly high even though we eat organic and we grow some of our own food that is also organic. i think the government isn't doing its job and they're the 1st to say that there should be no pesticides but they did
8:19 am
nothing and it was in the genes or q poll shows we were in a small village that is close to a farm an area we need to protect people to we never know what kind of health issues could be created by pit. so i think the decision by the mayor was intelligent and he needed to make a decision to protect the people but now he has difficulties with the justice system the world health organization has said gleich phosphate often used to weed killer probably causes cancer while gov phosphate has hit the headlines over health concerns much corn had promised to ban the use of phosphate by 2021 that provoked an outcry by farmers in unions who said they needed an alternative mark and then pushed the ban back to the following year when the current license will expire now across france the ban imposed by mcewan has gained traction he may have lost the 1st battling court but now around 20 other matters have followed his lead
8:20 am
banning the use of pesticides close to homes while farmers are furious and decry these bans as being politically motivated saying they are getting on the environmental bandwagon ahead of my own elections. mayors are already thinking of the next election environmentalists are wreaking havoc on our agriculture and our only factories floundering unless these mayors are outstanding scientists they are taking advantage of people's fear to make this kind of decision which is good for their images protectors of the environment and the population but it seems the government has been backed into a corner there must be a minimum distance between residential areas and best decided sprain i will advise in the coming days forming unions and the companies that produce pesticides ashore to have something to say about that but so too does make us who believe that these
8:21 am
things all the only way to protect people who live in their farms which use pesticides otherwise he says their health is screwed so all it even ski for altie lang go it in pretty. commemorations for the a.b.'s the anniversary of the beginning of world war 2 are currently underway in slovenia and a turn off flame was laid out a memorial built in honor of soviet and slovenian soldiers the torch use was brought all the way from russia and was itself led at the eternal flame at the tomb of the unknown soldier next the kremlin some of that arens who attended the event share their memories of the war with us. i joined the liberation front in 1942 and fought for it till the end of the war bitterly and carried out the greatest number of attacks against nancy's at the age of 17 i was the commander of the battalion i still remember how we fought against
8:22 am
the italians we took a position on a hill just minutes before they came we had to fight back with grenades it was hard to shoot there a battalion managed to break down their resistance and won the battle we were very brave back then what happened in those days should never again be repeated in the hay. street humanity. was slow me russia slovenia yugoslavia ole of the fraternal nations were fighting against the nazis back then i was a partisan i still remember how we were recapturing weapons and provisions from our enemy just to keep the resistance alive i'm sure that what happened during the times of war will never be repeated with passing this horrible experience from generation to generation to our children and grandchildren. the ceremony in slovenia is meant to serve as a reminder of the soviet union's role in the liberation of europe from nazi germany and the price that both nations paid as a reminder of slovenia's plight under nazi occupation.
