4:11 pm
as far as he was concerned, this was all part of a hybrid attack by russia own europe and his allies. and you for that update. natasha butler live for us. there, let's get some more nemesis on this story now and bring in samuel romani, he's a specialist on a russian foreign policy at the university of oxford. samuel, thanks for joining us on this news. our. how likely is it that the situation between ukraine and russia could escalate? could they, bay, and invasion? valinda marsh, april of this year there was a very high risk veneer escalation, be rushing you, crime, and this mobilization of forces, if you cranes numbers are to be believe its 100000 troops. eerily resembles that there are some people though, who are thinking that it may be more likely to have an invasion coming this time around them last time for several reasons. first of all, yon going coban 19 pandemic in these hangover of so she can amik discontent from the do mel actions as a potent more insecure internally. second,
4:12 pm
russia has been engaging and provocative actions against the last we're going to be on the bellows. margaret border, the western balkans and ukraine with relative impunity as western countries don't really form a coordinated response. and 3rd, the resurgence in oil prices good create a degree of like over competence. much like what drove russia towards invading georgia in 2008 is russia's military aggression high and now than in previous years, or we saying just to repaint. so of the situation, ukraine has been a semi frozen compet really since the middle of 2015 when the minsk agreements were signed. so they've been periodic movements of the line of control between ukraine and russia. escalations, where the russians blame the ukrainians for escalating it. and then try to move the borders, but there hasn't really been any game changing developments and done bass over the past 6 years. now, however, it appears as if the russians could be basically setting a trap. and was they blame ukraine for provoking or causing no harm?
4:13 pm
death, aggressions, and in a pushing for a fuller invasion. we should watch for that creation of a pretext. and after that says, studying was any boy, for a dangerous situation. russians, president has dismissed the fees as alarmist and in keys, nato of in flaming tensions in the region. what do you make of his comments? well, these hormones are wholly. busy predictable from the russian side. the russians is a exactly the same thing about the situation and the butler is pulling border. they were seeing that britain because of its willingness to apply forces and the brothers from bars actually causing that problem. i mean, obviously the move any movement from nato or statements results and burger, the movement of british forces. your ukraine, like 7, been saying would probably provoke even more reactions to that regard. to us and surprising that the russians of blame, ukrainian, trustworthy and bass are the last. but the actual catalyst for this appears to be ukraine's testing of truck is drones that are actor drones last month and rushes the steady path of escalation. ever since then. we appreciate your insides. thank

4:18 pm
a short while ago. again, in the kinds of scenario for the month, a 20 was arrested on the section 41 of the terrorism that nadine baba has been following this story from london has the latest nadeem we've just heard from the counter terrorism police. what more did they have to say? well, emily, very shortly before 11 o'clock on sunday, a local taxi was rather picked up a passenger in the rutland avenue area of liverpool and was asked to go to liverpool women's hospital. that's what the police said at the press conference was around a 10 minute journey now, one minute before 11. and you can see this on the c t t, v footage, outside the house with all the taxi approaches, the drop off point there is an explosion. there is an exposure inside the car.
4:19 pm
you see daybreak flying, you've been to see the driver coming out of the taxi, moving away from it, and then a while later, the taxi bursting into flames. by the time the fire crews actually got to the scene, the call was completely in flames. now they said that when they got there, it was clear, the passenger was dead inside the vehicle. that's saying that they don't know what the motive for this incident was, but it is being treated as a terrorist incident to the investigation is being led by counter terrorism. police, as you just heard, there have been raids on properties in liverpool and now for people are under arrest in connection with what happened on sunday. they say that they have found significant items at one property. they also say they believe they know who the passenger was, but they're not saying any more than that at the moment. now, the,
4:20 pm
the device that they're talking about, they say that they assume it was an improvised explosive device which was built by the passenger. but should stress at the moment that these are assumptions according to the police. indeed it sounds like there are plenty moving parts to the story. what has been said about the actions of that taxi driver in preventing for the casualty? well, we should just say that he has been named does david perry, this taxi driver and he was taken to hospital to be treated but injuries that he received, but he's now being released. so he's ok. beyond that early on monday joanne davidson, the man of. busy liverpool said, but his heroic actions had avoided what could have been a much bigger disaster. and now we've heard from prime minister bar is johnson. who
4:21 pm
said that he acted with incredible presence of mind and bravery. we don't exactly know the sequence of events and we haven't heard from that taxi driver. the police are stressing that or vote not far away. there was a remembered date event at the cathedral and this incident happened just before 11. am when there was a minute silence, they're saying that they can't link the to right now. and they also haven't actually said anything more given us any more detail about either the driver or what he was asked to do. it'll be interesting to see how it unfolds. in the coming day and thank for the update nadeem bob of a live for us in london. australians have protested in the capital the enter on sunday, against a new nationwide locked down. anyone over the age of 12 years old, who hasn't had a coven? 19 jeff can now only leave their home for essential shopping medical visits or to get vaccinated. only around 65 percent of the population is vaccinated,
4:22 pm
which is below the average. these measures will last 10 days for more and if that's bringing dominant came, who's covering the story from berlin? hello. they've dominic is clearly quite a bit of anger as a result of these latest restrictions. well, it's worth making the points that the protests that took place yesterday sunday in vienna were not particularly widely attended. but there's no question that there are several 1000000 people in austria who fall into that category of people who have not had the vaccine yet. and know that the vaccine is available to them. it's those people who are going to find themselves often now do find themselves very much facing truncated se possibilities to go outside if they can't prove their status. which of course, under these new rules, they can't prove their status. that's what this is all about. this,
4:23 pm
this rule that requires people to either prove that they've recently recovered from the virus all that they've been vaccinated against the virus. that's the only way that people in austria legally can now go about their daily lives and do most things that most people would want to be doing. so we're talking about several 1000000 people here, but it is worth making the point also that that number also includes children and those under 12, well they're not school to be part of this category of people who can't go out. so we're talking about a smallish group of society, but clearly this represents a very clear as it were invasion on the rights of those people. that's until now they were able to come and go as they pleased. of course, following the sorts of mask wearing requirements and that sort of thing will now that's gone now they have to follow much more stringent rules and their rights from their perspective are being infringed. and dominic, from a broader perspective,
4:24 pm
there's been a surge and cases across europe. authorities must be concerned ahead of winter. yes, very much so we're fast progressing towards winter right now. the nights drawing in the cold weather coming in. effectively forcing people into public places indoors. the very problem which encourages the transmission of cove it. the interesting thing is that just across the austrian border in bavaria, you see similar very high incidences of cov id right now. in fact, right across germany, on its southern and eastern borders, you see in particular parts of the country, incidences of corona very high. indeed, almost the same as in austria. and the prime ministers of those states are calling out for help from the federal government. and in some places, notably in bavaria, notably in saxony and in berlin. you have stringent rules now in place,
4:25 pm
what they call in german, that's fi. again, legal that basically means you've got to prove that you are vaccinated or you've recovered from the virus or you can't go to public places already in the space of the last hour or so. we've heard from the bavarian prime minister saying that he expects very soon to have the same sort of rules as the austrians have just brought in in place in his state. why? because the incidence is so great right now, and that's what's really worrying people. and in the germans sense stuff from the wider perspective, there is no ruling government right now with the majority in parliament. it's a caretaker, government coalition negotiations taking place. and there seems to be a power vacuum, a government in office, but not in power, and no central decision making, taking place that may change soon. but for the moment, it's like a patchwork quilt, different rules applying in different places. and the one thing that's constant is the corona virus. incidence is just going up and up and up instantly is thank you
4:26 pm
for that update. a dominant cane live for us in berlin on the news our while as been 15 years since the launch of this channel outages, every english since 2006, our international teams have worked tirelessly to share stories from across the globe. let's take a look at what got us here with mohammed down. welcome. jim tino from the 15th 2006 day one of a new era and television news. the media network expanded its reach to the english speaking audio and the very 1st program live for me on the news headquarters. 24 hour english language news channel has now given a voice to the voice of the democratic republic of congo. word under zillah english . settled to pass that was already some i paid. no, it's just a channel of just, you know, our big was already a power for regional brand with an international outreach. the mission of our
4:27 pm
english was to build on that momentum which it did into yes. the new channel whose initial aim was 20000000 subscribers, was able to reach 18000000. it's exclusive coverage of the israeli war and gathered in 2008 made the stand out among giant world competitors with regional hubs in though how london, washington, dc and quite lumper, the vast network of correspondence and social media platforms. it was able to provide the most comprehensive news coverage from the middle east, africa, asia, europe, and the americas. the focus was on human stories. this meant take risks, reaching remote areas and challenging government censorship. i was just the champion, the coverage of what became known as the arab spring. we were really a platform for those who were the you for it crowds, if you like. whereas across the world, people who are demanding freedom people who are defending democracy before their
4:28 pm
struggle descended on conflicts. we faced many, many challenges over the years by while while covering conflicts and some of the most trouble region. while covering protest in egypt for our english journalists were jailed on false charges for nearly 2 years. the thing is we were doing our job as a professional journalist in egypt. and at some point, this did not make the government in egypt happy. you didn't want anybody to report anything. what, what do they see as a truth? so it was a shock. people came restless, just simply for 2 reasons. one, they don't want the truth to prevail for people. the 2nd thing they wanted to intimidate other 4 or join us in general in cairo, undaunted, the channel went ahead, gaining more popularity and winning awards. it managed to reverse the direction of the news flow, given a stronger voice to the global south. yeah. in 15 years of english,
4:29 pm
how solidified it's a global footprint and continues its commitment to viewers by bringing to light stories that are otherwise less comfort hammered via our dis. yellow angels travel is a managing director of al jazeera english. he told me the scope of the channels coverage distinguishes itself from other international networks. we are a channel that is not based in a traditional power center, so we're not from london. we're not from washington, one from parents, not berlin or we are. we are in a, in a, in a region of the world which isn't used to having international news channels based . and so by having, by being based here, and along with our editorial perspective, which is to provide all perspectives and alternative. so that makes it really important that i think out there english has such a wide range and scope and depth in its coverage. unlike many other or most other
4:30 pm
news organizations with been doing voice, the voiceless for every day, every hour, every day for the past 15 years coverage, we've done on the climate change and, and the cult some of the packages from the field. and earlier this year as well, about climate showing the effects of this climate emergency that we're going through on everyday people. and often it's the most poor and marginalized communities that are suffering are on the front line of the climate change. some of those stores that we've done among everything else, i think have been really powerful and telling the human story. it's really important that we continue with the technological revolution and wherever that is going. and where on the platforms to provide our audience is what they need. but at the same time, stick to the core editor values may change of pace. let's have to the weather with room. well springs a season of change and that change can.
