RT News - January 18, 2017 (17:00 MSK)

After prosecuting a record number of whistleblowers during his term in office, outgoing U.S. President Obama commutes the jail sentence of one of them - Chelsea Manning. A bitter exchange erupts between Britain's Prime Minister and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn as he lashes out at May's hard Brexit plan in Parliament. Germany's top court has ruled out an attempt to ban the country's National Democratic Party, which many consider to be Neo-Nazi. The light goes off during a speech by outgoing U.S. vice president Joe Biden as the global elite at the World Economic Forum in Davos strive to adjust to the new world of Brexit and Trump.

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you. Unfortunately, the comments made before the change have been lost due to a technical problem. We are working on restoring them, and hoping to see you fill up the comment section with new ones. You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,

RT Team.
