RT News - September 14 2021 (17:00 MSK)

US lawmakers berate Secretary of State Antony Blinken for his handling of the pull-out from Afghanistan - a crisis he says 'he inherited' from former president Donald Trump. Vladimir Putin self-isolates after a Covid-19 case in his entourage, and will continue carrying out his duties online. Shortly before having to isolate, the Russian leader held an unannounced meeting with his Syrian counterpart, Bashar Al-Assad where he expressed fears about the 'foreign presence' in the Middle Eastern state. We speak to Russian tennis star Daniil Medvedev after he upsets world number 1 Novak Djokovic to win the US open and stop the Serbian legend winning all four majors this year.
