RT News - February 15, 2017 (12:00 MSK)

Media reports citing unnamed sources claim members of Donald Trump's team were in contact with Russian intelligence during his election campaign - sparking more hysteria over the new president's alleged links to Moscow. Meanwhile the Trump Administration faces fresh challenges, but this time from within, following what it calls "illegal leaks coming from Washington". The US military confirms to RT that its air strikes in Syria used depleted uranium, known to cause cancer and generations of birth defects. That's despite the Pentagon insisting in the past it wouldn't use the toxic substance in military campaigns. From research hub, to centre of unrest - RT reveals the German University of Hamburg has become a platform for left-wing radicals, planning to hijkack July's G20 meeting. 

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.
