2:03 pm

2:04 pm
people detained in russia and ukraine as a positive signal we should see another important step to breaking the deadlock in the current russian ukrainian relations unlike his predecessors selenski new administration has shown a sensible approach and a readiness to compromise some experts say that this is so we will sit have signed for the implementation of the minsk remains which effectively the only viable option you as viewed by russia and ukraine and the bloodshed the civil war in the east of ukraine. and things played out in the ukrainian capital as 35 other prisoners arrived in camp earlier you know near discuss the developments with donald cortez. this prisoner exchange was a very significant moment for the young political administration of ukraine's president vladimir selenski and he actually went there early to the airport to visit the prisoners as they were coming down from the air from the airplane to
2:05 pm
greet them and he even gave a small speech talking about the significance of this exchange for the future relations between russia and ukraine. ukrainian president voted him or zelinsky and russian president vladimir putin have done everything we have promised and did not change over agreements this is a. pretty. easy if you'll ship and we heard this kind of sentiment echoed pretty much all over the world actually we heard the council of europe say that this was a really important step in normalizing relations between russia and ukraine we also heard from russia's human rights commissioner who said this was a historic step she said and even donald trump commented on twitter he gave his congratulations to both parties involved give us a sense right while at the beginning it was all speculation you know there were it was unknown who the prisoners were there were blacked out windows on the buses but now we have. identified them and let's go over the main one yes one of the primary
2:06 pm
prisoners that was there were exchanged was ukrainian filmmaker o'lakes sense of know he was sentenced to 20 years in prison in russia on terrorism charges during the crimean referendum of 2014 he was accused of being part of a terrorist organization that plotted bombings of civilian installations during that time now he already served 5 years of that sentence and we saw him and identified him as he was stepping out of the airplane in kiev today reuniting with his family and moving on to other people we saw were some sailors that were involved in the current strait incident that took place in november of last year and now those were $24.00 ukrainian sailors that were identified that were traded the current strait incident was when 3 ukrainian vessels were trying to enter the sea of odds of and they were met with the russian coast guard that warned them to turn back that they were perhaps going to be in violation of russia's territory on the high seas they gave no response and so the ukrainian vessels were fired on and
2:07 pm
see so now that they have been returned this is a really historical moment for both russia and ukraine and perhaps a great leap forward for their future relations that have been tense to say the least and this plan that this historic prisoner exchange should be viewed as a positive by anyone who wants to see peace between the 2 nations. this is the 1st time for about 5 more than 5 years close in 6 years that russia and ukraine are. things that could be seen as a positive i mean obviously decision on has been made at the highest level between the 2. the new president there in ukraine the new president in russia so it seems that the 2 presidents are decided upon it's a very high profile prisoner swap if you will receive but france and germany in particular who were you know emanuel my corn and angela merkel have been talking about trying to get the peace talks we started this month i mean they basically
2:08 pm
they fell apart in the core of shingle use meant poroshenko simply didn't want to couldn't or it didn't have the mandation internally in ukraine and wasn't strong enough but he definitely was unable to move the peace talks alarm's anybody that wants to see peace between in eastern ukraine and normalization of relations between russia and ukraine after this you know 5 and a half years of bio and i still if he understood this long interregnum period where there's been no progress whatsoever well below should of course. state department has confirmed it attempted to bribe the captain of the reigning all tile company agent area one which is that the center of the diplomatic row in order to detain it the vessel previously known as grace one was held by the u.k. in july and. it was released in august despite protests from the united states which is increasing pressure on iran has been hiding all this purported in the eastern mediterranean region that is tracking to fight off here's artes daniel
2:09 pm
hawkins. if at 1st you don't succeed try try again so keen with u.s. authorities to get their hands on a rainy and. they used everything at their disposal 1st came the stick accusing the tanker of movie world to syria in breach of sanctions they went to the u.k. for help british marines a pound of the ship but it was passing through the strait of gibraltar. the spanish foreign minister said the arrest came after a demand from the u.s. to the u.k. . but on 15th of august gibraltar released the vessel it's sail into the mediterranean a few days later after being renamed from grace one to adrian daria one then came the carrot we've all had one of those emails i'm writing to you with good news what
2:10 pm
might you expect a surprise not true when perhaps a huge inheritance from a long lost royal family member in africa well that's exactly the email that the ship's captain received but this wasn't the regular spam for the junk folder this came direct from the state department. this is bryan hook i work for secretary of state mike pump a 0 and serve as the u.s. representative for iran the offer millions of dollars for captain kumar to dock his own tanker in a u.s. friendly port that would allow it seizure by washington after the possibly confused captain failed to reply a 2nd e-mail hit his inbox the tone now less friendly with this money you can have any life you wish and be well off in old age if you choose not to take this easy path life would be much harder for you what lay behind this thinly veiled threat
2:11 pm
was left to his imagination to ron was understandably roiled having failed at piracy the us resource to outright blackmail deliver us iran's oil and receive several $1000000.00 or be sanctioned yourself sounds very similar to the oval office invitation i received a few weeks back it is becoming a pattern incredibly the state department confirmed to this unusual strategy even adding this was no one off we have conducted extensive outreach to several ship captains as well shipping companies taps and crew more meanwhile is on the u.s. naughty list how differently this story would have ended if only captain kumar had cashed in and just aren't that good news email. meanwhile u.s. national security advisor john bolton has tweeted that the tanker has now been seen entering a syrian port iran previously denied it had made any definitive statement that the ship's final destination. anyone who said the adrian daria one wasn't headed to
2:12 pm
syria is in denial terror and thinks it's more important to fund the murderous assad regime than provide for its own people we can talk pretty runs not getting any sanctions relief until it stops lying and spreading terror. the fact that they try to bribe a captain of the tanker. and then subsequently threaten them is extraordinary and it should be something that people in the united states. will be kept talking about day and night but there are also out there issues as well bolton wants to intimidate iran and that he has failed and the supertanker is alongside the syrian shore reveals that failure so he's outraged at another level he wants to make the syrian people suffer as much as possible because that's been u.s. policy for many years now and on the other hand he wants to. prevent
2:13 pm
iran from carrying out trade with other countries through bullying and threats and illegal behavior so there are multiple reasons for the u.s. behavior towards iran towards syria and towards the all independent countries but i think it's only harming the united states in the long run because the united states is increasingly seen as a rogue regime. in south africa's biggest city johannesburg foreign owned businesses are being looted amid a wave of pretensions across the country on monday the country's police minister described the situation as a national emergency call it reports from the city where foreigners say they're increasingly looking in. the killing to peek into hand as. they have seen some of the worst violence against foreigners south africa as you

2:23 pm
is message is that america is losing the information war against russia and is struggling to control and counteract all sorts. it's not enough to bus or falsehood because truth the truth does not always win the scale of russian disinfo mation was beyond what we were capable of responding to or thora tarion governments have gone from fearing the flow of information to exploiting its or they understand that the same tools that spread democracy can engineer its undoing let's face it democracies are not very good at combating this information. richard stengel was managing editor at time magazine between 262013 before moving on to government work as under secretary of state for public diplomacy and if as for 2 years singles his own propaganda have changed last year he openly backed it describing himself as chief propagandist. basically every country creates their own
2:24 pm
narrative story i'm not against propaganda every country does it and they have to do it to their own population and i don't necessarily think it's that awful it's. i would say there's a difference between propaganda and us telling people what our policy is so i don't think i job is propaganda. you know my old job at the state department was what people used to joke as the chief propaganda is job journalist and author daniel thinks that washington has a selective approach to dealing with the. americans never a law and even when they law. it's not a lie because somehow it's a it's in pursuit of a higher truth and so are so stengel would never admit to admit to deceit to to painting a false portrait remember though the worse the us does terms of foreign policy the greater the distance from ation that that emanates out of washington the u.s. never changes the u.s.
2:25 pm
is always consistent always honest always forthright and that anybody who says anything to the contrary must be must be spreading this information in behalf of russia on one hand yes the us is being more openly propagandists like the other hand when the us does it it's not propaganda it's simply the truth and anything to the contrary is fake information a funny thing now i'll be back with more updates in around 30 minutes time you stay with us. during the great depression which i'm old enough to remember there was most of my family were employed. there wasn't it was bed you know much worse objective listen today but there was an expectation the things were going to get better. there was a real sense of hopefulness there isn't today today's america was shaped by the
