2:03 pm
from the russian border are being watched closely by moscow. which fears the uprising could pose a threat to the stability of the region. oh, new rules. russia shares a 7000 kilometer border with kazakhstan with, if you see that border is not especially protected here. yes, organizationally, ever staunch the kremlin has heated president a chi of calls for help and sent more than 2000 troops to help put out the fire and brushes doorstep. but there are few signs of peace here on the streets of cossacks done as each day brings fresh bloodshed. government forces said they've quote, liquidated dustin's rioters in clash a set of also claimed the lives of several police. well, classifying the group, well, you have to understand this is 30 years of pent up anger that's being released. look here to what they're shooting it, all of us was healthy, but none of us wants to hurt anyone. human on less than 3 years and power to call
2:04 pm
you was the chosen successor to autocrat north will ton nurse a by if to chi, if his vow to wipe out. so culture is groups which he blames for the uprising number. going to carry the counter terrorist operation continues. the militants have not laid down to arms. they continue to commit crimes or prepare for committing them. the fight against them should be completed. whoever does not surrender will be eliminated as he fights 1st, political survival somewhere. the protest could lead to an air of even harsher or through terry newsome. and let's bring in rita stanish, a journalist with a radio free europe who's been following a story for us from a prague. welcome to the show. thanks for taking the time at the president for going any pretence of rule of law by announcing a shoot to kill order. will that threat be taken seriously or just further enraged protesters? i mean,
2:05 pm
it certainly likely to inflame the situation. i guess it's definitely going to be taken seriously on, you know, all last night there was a fighting place across amadi gunshots to be heard across the city. well in the morning. so that speech that shows that the government is digging deep and they have no arms about using force against people who are on the streets. so let's take a look at the bigger picture than what does this unrest and the response mean for the region. and for cause extends autocratic neighbors, certainly alarming. and that's part of why when we were willing to intervene at the government request through the collective security treaty organization, or the p o, which is the military line and the member. so it's very likely because then all of our autocratic, it has a reputation of being able and the reason i think is the most wealthy country. so
2:06 pm
how quickly it would be able to depend on essentially, i think that's very worried and i've been for a lot of the other government who have similar cocktail of long standing political and economic prevent me back home and then potentially in place. you know, in the coming year and you know, so much it's ration. so that's why i think that border, especially talking about russia, talking about china and they have a really strong interest in keeping them people and saving off something back to grow and do a lot of revolt where they would lose, you know, a government department. and yet this russia lead organization sending troops into context on, at the countries request. this came just hours after bottom years putting the spokes person said that it was important that no foreign countries intervened in context on what you make of those remarks. yeah, i think the comments, i quite reflective of how the friendly you have been and you, russian,
2:07 pm
roland translator, moscow has a type of special relationship with directly and currently the country within europe and russian. yo, they were invited by then and, and so farming they back, they hadn't been dealing with protesters or just been guardian important strategic based across the country. but i think it's the wider members of the world. and especially when russia is getting the ball and for a record deal with a part of the world with an ad that, you know, it's no coincidence that this is the comments and this type of view is getting put out. i'm glad you're prepared to meet with joe biden next week to discuss korean, which is another country and another area of the crime and the intrinsic to identity offence when you're going journalist read it spanish. thank you so much for joining us on the w. so let's take
2:08 pm
a look now at the economic side of the unrest with rob, what's from, did of the business iraq. we've heard how russia and other former soviet states are getting involved in kazakhstan. the tell us more about has expands economic importance in the region. well, not only is a, is catholics on massive, but it's also of massive strategic importance. it has 2 very big neighbors in china and russia and is a key transit country and not just goods, but also commodities passing from china through to russia. and then course onwards into west in europe. so that's one reason it's important. another one is that it's got large oil and gas reserves, and the world still runs on hydrocarbons. even if it wishes it didn't, at times, in fact, is estimated to have the 11th biggest oil reserves in the world. and also uranium as well, which is a key commodity that's produced in catholics because it's not, it's actually the, the biggest producer of that in the world around a quarter of the uranium produced each year is produced by cars extend. that's very
2:09 pm
important to countries that reliant on nuclear power. frances, among the countries that takes uranium from cassock stand and then it's also got loads of other resources. up salt is another one of them. so it's a very important country in that's perhaps one of the reasons why the international community is paying so much attention to what's going on there. you can see why that is then strategically important and of interest internationally. and how much of what is happening inside context on do you think is down to the state of because like economy? well, it's really key to what's happening there because what's propelling the unrest is a feeling of dissatisfaction. the feeling that there is a great deal of unfairness in the cassock economy. i mean, it started with these protests about lpg la liquid lik 5 petroleum gas, basically fuel, which was very cheap in kaz. external fuel is cheap in cassock tanks. they've got so much bit, but the other side of year subsidies on lpg were taken away and that caused the price of lpg to double. that was a big problem for, audrey has acts because
2:10 pm
a lot of the she converted back cause to run on lpg. so an immediate impact on that, but you know, it was about o, p g, but this could have been sparked by arising prices of anything really that catholics reliant upon because they are so unhappy about this difference between the ruling elite and the elite who possess the vast raw material wealth of the country has. and the people who don't actually, the average income in kazakhstan is, is very low per household. it's something like $250.00 euros per month. and, and that difference is, is really case what we're seeing that i rob was from it, didn't the business. thank you so much for joining me in the studio to break that down. so let's bring you up to speed now on some other world news stories. cambodia, as a prime minister han san has arrived in man, mark we're talks with the country's military rulers. now is the 1st visit by a head of government since the army over through man, mars elected administration in february last year is all things,
2:11 pm
marking months of protests and a bloody response from the regime. in mexico several arrests have been made after 10 dead bodies were found in a car left outside the governor's office in the state of zacatecas. he area has seen a surgeon violence linked to a turf war between 2 rival drug gangs. federal agencies have been called in to help with the investigation. the russian christians have been celebrating christmas at midnight now that christ, the savior cathedral in moscow, worshippers were required to wear mask and to observe social distances. while russian president vladimir putin attended a mass alone at his residence, 5 moscow knew she will be again offering a 4th shot of the corona virus vaccine from next week is the 1st country in latin america to offer the extra dose. and she has one of the world's highest vaccination
2:12 pm
rate at 85 percent of the population, and about 57 percent have already received a booster shots. meanwhile, here in germany, corona virus case loads remain high with 55000 new infections reported in the past 24 hours. that is 35 percent more than just a week ago. and it has prompted an online summit of political leaders to consider further measures to tackle the highly infectious omicron variance as covert infections rallies in germany. there are fears the only crown variant could put to greatest strain on key infrastructure. like the emergency services, the biggest headache for ambulance police and fire cruise could come not from the infections themselves, or microns seems to cause less severe disease than the delta variant. but have infected people and even their contacts have to isolate in large numbers and might not be enough personnel to do with central jobs. the health minister has a plan. he told me of and as we were minimizing the risk,
2:13 pm
but we're moving in the direction of having a very safe solution. and at the same time, keeping the critical infrastructure viable. this is achieved by shortening the quarantine period and also the installation period. but always ensuring that the p c r test guarantees that no one is still contagious and the amount is no, hon stick. and currently those with all micron have to quarantine for 14 days. the proposals could reduce that to 10 days, or even just a week if the patient tests negative it's not only in health care or the emergency services that absent stuff could cause a big problem. some fear, even the power supply could be affected. the company which manages berlin's electricity network says there's no danger of the lights going out, but short quarantines. oh, welcome. be on slow colleague and colleague, thing among the colleagues with our headquarters who monitor and control the berlin distribution network. we have very highly specialized people. if we have
2:14 pm
a single case there that we are in favor of shortening, but not in general, only for selected personnel and under defined conditions and different yet bidding on politicians are proposing tighter contact restrictions to even limiting entry to restaurants and cafes to the vaccinated. and recovered, who also have a negative test on the streets of the german capital. there is support for strict are approach. good. it's good, tough measures should be taken. that's why i'm wearing my mask even on the street also mit them. yeah, i think we need to act minded because i'm not so worried. i'm triple vaccinate time . i've been on daughters is we need to end this thing as soon as possible. so, so, so we should use all possibilities at all level isn't and berkeley cars. and once again in this pandemic, there are warnings of a looming crisis, and germany is bracing for trouble. ahead and for more, let's go to
2:15 pm
d. w. political correspondent lay on it on how much time in it for lin, larry, germany's federal and regional leaders are holding their online meeting. what are they discussing? well, they're likely to discuss current measures in place and, and they are, we'd like to see some continuity. so we're expecting some measures to stay in place, for example, conduct restrictions in the private field or access to future as cultural venue. you know that currently only those vaccinated or recovered can enter. but then we are also expecting to see some changes. one of them being, you know, that states and premier state premiers and the chancellor are likely to shorten quarantine and isolation periods. and they are also likely to make it a bit harder to have a night out at a restaurant or a bar. and they're likely to introduce further restrictions, so that only those who have gotten their booster shot or those double vaccines and with a negative test results from the last 24 hours can enter restaurants and bars. and
2:16 pm
obviously that can be seen as an effort to really encourage people to get their b booster shot. you mentioned that quarantine rules could be relaxed and looking at the latest survey from infra tested, the mob pulling does show that a majority of germans, 67 percent, think that the isolation period should be shortened if that person test negative and doesn't show any symptoms. this is supposed to protect critical infrastructure, but it is easing rule that the same time as germany faces. the highly infectious omicron variant will be contentious. well, from everything we know about the macro very and so far from the expert, there is a set of good news. and there's a set of bad news. the good news being that it is likely to be a milder variant than previous virus. barian such as delta, but the bad news is that it is, as you said, highly infectious. i mean, germany has seen just over the last week. the numbers, the on, the kron case number is triple. so it may affect
2:17 pm
a lot of people at the same time. now the health minister and you know, authorities are using the argument that people will still have to get a negative p. c. r test. at the end of that quarantine, shortened quarantine period in order to go back to their jobs to enter back into normal life. but there's one big question mark, and that is p c r test capacities. because, you know, if the numbers are really going to spike as much as experts, fear they will in the coming weeks, then it is unsure whether that p c r testing capacity is sufficient. and so the bottom line is yes, authorities want to tackle the spread. but it's also kind of balanced balancing act to still keep critical infrastructure running, and also to still incentivize people to get their booster shot. right. and health experts are warning people that although kwan may be milder, it is not necessarily a mild disease. given that there could be lack of testing available,
2:18 pm
do you expect that we're going to see more measures restricting those who are unvaccinated? well, we do have to remember that the unvaccinated, you know, the life for the n vaccinated germany both publicly and privately, is almost as restrictive as a can be. and authorities are hoping that that will convince the remaining people who are not, who have not gotten their vaccine yet am to get vaccinated am. and if that doesn't help them, a vaccine mandate is still on the table that is being debated and will expect a decision on that next month by the german parliament. tew political correspondent, revenue fun. hammerstein, thank you so much for that update. so let's check in on some other developments in the pandemic. global core crone of iris cases have topped 300000000 according to figures by johns hopkins university. and while it took more than a year for the world to reach the 1st 100000000 infections, the 3rd 100000000 have been recorded in the space of barely 5 months. japan,
2:19 pm
meanwhile, has approved new restrictions in 3 regions, starting from friday. these are the 1st anti cove measures in the country since september. when japan lifted emergency controls and health authorities in costa rica say they will begin vaccinating children aged 5 to 11 against coven 19 next week. and a 1st of its kind you west study shows the number of adults living with dementia is set to nearly triple world wide to 153000000. by the year 2050 risk factors like obesity and smoking will likely drive the numbers. the research estimates that especially north africa and the middle east, will see a dramatic increase in cases in the coming decades. more people getting older and indulging in unhealthy habits. that's what a landmark study found were the main reasons for an expected spike in dementia. cases will rise in every country, but the middle east in north africa will see an almost 400 percent rise in the
2:20 pm
number of people with the degenerative brain disease. by the year 2050, the projection and north african, the middle east, where we're quite large. i'm in the do you like increases both and population growth and population aging? and so the theory, demographic factors, in particular, in that region row is large anticipated increases in dimension burden. dementia leads to a loss of brain function, thinking, reasoning, and remembering. destroying life slowly reset. you see that though the numbers are not set in stone, they should serve as a warning to act. no, this is an important important is these to consider on in terms of future planning no matter where you are. you will see a less pronounced increase with 40000000 cases in 2050 compared to around 8000000.
2:21 pm
no believe to be a result of the older population. and a longer history of grappling with unhealthy lifestyles, healthy diet, lower alco intake, stalls making. and so that this sort of mantra look after the hearts and you look after the head expense, see healthy eating campaigns as well as the use of medication like aspirin, to prevent stroke of help to combat the disease. when i start in said decrease in the numbers of some dimensions such as masculine dimensions. so this'll help promotion elements of managing risk factors is starting to have an impact. some encouraging signs for policy makers faced with a sergeant demand for dementia care in the decades to come and let's go to the sports now. and in the bonus league after a 3 week winter break, byron munich will open the 2nd half of the season against mauricio much and glad
2:22 pm
back. the game in munich will have no spectators, and will, of course, be dominated by the current corona virus pandemic. 9 of byron's players have tested positive for the virus and war players from glad back to here is what coach julia now, guzman had to say about tonight's match. as in my late movie convene, oak, we've imposed all sorts of measures, and i can't see why we know half more and fair to players than other clubs. i know that we pull the sticks and relatively far. maybe that's one reason, but it's the only thing i could explain it with him with a shout and amount of tongue in cheek listerine. i don't think there's necessarily agree explanation. it's a bet. unfortunate new question, but we the players about the same rules of conduct as the last 2 years where it worked very well for long stretches as a good from senator. so let's break this down with chris harrington from dw sports . hi, chris byron, at 9 a points clear at the top of the standings after 17 games, but now they have 9 players have tested positive for cove. it
2:23 pm
a back can't be good news for them. no, not good news. you know, you know, when you look at it all paper, their cat did model annoy a beam out, i think is a most significant. he's, the goalkeeper backups is. don't get any play time. that's the reality. so he will get his shot. tonight's been all right. you know, but in terms of payback on the pitch, this was buyers opportunity to get pay back to get booted out of the german cup with their depleted roster. looks like that might be a tall order. you know, you know, for that a number of t knaves are out leroy. so i may day, i hope of a carlo lucas hernandez, you know, a long list. you know, but it doesn't produce an opportunity as well. novels mine is gonna have to field, you know, with these caught of 16 year old and 18 year old. so maybe one of those 16 year olds, if he gets put in the game, he could put his name or the history books and become young players. but as the get history, so, you know, there's that slight positive side to it as well. but it should be an interesting match. nonetheless, there could be there moment in the limelight. and because talk us through, how do you think the coven 19 pandemic is going to affect the 2nd half of the season? will some sporting directors readily have express fears?
2:24 pm
because how contagious this new variant is? is omnicom variant? you know, so they believe it will impact the 2nd half of the season, you know, abroad in the premier league. we've already seen post bowman's take place. now, you know, in the bonus to get certain criteria has to be met. you have to have fewer than 16 available players to choose from for a postponement to be valid. but we have to wait and see. hopefully, that's not the case, but coming into this returning fixture, a handful of clubs are already effected. dorman had to berlin arby lives and glad by as well. we heard earlier in the show that novak joke of which has become a divisive figure in tennis because of vaccination within the buddhist league, and they have their own controversial figure. and i guess yahoo, a kimmy was, he's actually set to make his return, you know, to night. and actually he, he looks very good training, but he was a very divisive figure. he said he had fears and concerns over whether or not to get the vaccination. he was actually voted the disappointment of the season by but
2:25 pm
as the good players for his position. but he said taking a u turn, you know, i and he actually contract it. cobit had long problems and so forth. germany's education in research minister called his you turn a good decision because he is on that platform. he is obviously a role model to many, you know, but many athletes we've seen not only here in germany, but abroad in new york, the in b a carry irving was one player, you know, that didn't get vaccinated in the league, invited him back. he's actually participating, so it seems to be different roles were different places, but hopefully we can all get on the same page and just make the environment healthier for everyone involved at chris harrington at from the, to the as far as thanks so much for coming in the studio that relates and time to check in on peru where police officers are taking community outreach to another level in spreading the fastest barrett as part of traditional celebrations. to mark a tiffany, a put on a parade in the streets of lima, led by officers dressed up as the 3 kings and some known as the free wise men. and
