9:04 pm
that was it that was very brief that was very quick but it's simply way way too dangerous for us to stay here for long so we're getting the hell out of our drop there's no ceasefire there's no ceasefire here has already told you it's being shelled basically both sides are wrestling. for the control of this town it's a matter of all it's a matter of integrity for both look at him military jets flying above us and bombing the mountains next to the city of patrols so there's that for the ceasefire for now because down of reporting from the corner karabakh see a car about conflict stretches back more than 3 decades although the region is legally part of it is populated mainly by ethnic armenians broke away back in the 1990 s. after a lengthy war. one of ours about john's largest cities ganjo was also bombarded in the early hours of sunday baku says 9 people were killed and more than 30 injured we spoke to a journalist in azerbaijan. 1 the news about. ganja caused the fury and

the 1st to break the cease fire our men spoke exclusively to r.t. his full interview will air later on tuesday here's a preview. so are there violations on the part of army and if there are why is it happening that there are violations and as far as i understand it one violet the other one nasser's and then it goes back it goes around back to the initial place who was the 1st point number one in the case of. the bombing or shelling. journ journos of a bug john cleary information from my government from ministry of defense and for foreign minister and foreign minister i have spoken about that already that it's definitely not not there i mean it has filled it that's number one number 2 when you were speaking about breaking the cease fire it it was unfortunately immediately

9:09 pm

complaints that these measures especially the tough ones could spell the death knell for a number of industries in the economy and so the government announcing that they will be supporting people's wages and asked not as much as they were before previously the so-called photosystem would have seen up to 80 percent of people's wages or up to 2 and a half 1000 pounds paid for by the government if people weren't able to work now that's been reduced to 67 percent or around $2100.00 pounds and so the government tried to support people but there are some who said that these measures will impact in particular the north of england and some officials including the mayor of manchester which is in the north of england and the burnham coming out and saying that enough is enough i will not anymore perhaps with the situation where they impose things on the north of england that will cause real damage to people's lives now it's not just the politicians who are unhappy either there are many amongst the public who say that in addition to the kind of pressures that it is. putting on

9:19 pm
measures were put forward jointly by france and germany the legal necessities will need to be drawn up before they can come into full force and we're expecting them to be announced in e.u. council meeting that's a meeting of the heads of government in state of the e.u. member states on thursday and friday of this week what we can expect from the sanctions though is that they will take the form of asset freezes and travel bans it's been reported 9 members of russia's security services may be the targets of the sanctions the german foreign minister announcing them had this to say we have initiated sanctions against individuals whom we believe to be partly responsible for this violation of international law it is important that the e.u. shows unity in such a serious crime today well germany and france were the 2 member states that put forward these berlin in paris say that russia has not given adequate answers as to
9:20 pm
what happened to alexei novelli well from moscow's point of view that they've asked germany to provide moscow with the evidence that shows that alexei navalny was poisoned with a nerve agent 4 times but that request has fallen on deaf ears in fact the russian foreign minister not happy at all with the way that moscow is being treated in this situation or pulls him rooms of the u. we are asking the o.p.c. doubly to explain their findings were the results of this probe they tell us the request was from germany so it's a german case and you should ask germany so we ask germany and we get the same old story for requests from a prosecutor general's office have been sent in accordance with the european convention on mutual assistance in criminal matters under this convention all requests must receive an answer instead we hear excuses absurd statements the russian should investigate these crimes on its own we cannot investigate the case.
9:21 pm
when we have no facts so where does this leave russia's relationship with the european union well ultimately not particularly great on monday we heard from alexander schellenberg the austrian foreign minister vienna had being traditionally a very close ally of moscow within the european union however the austrian foreign minister saying that there could be no return to business as usual however we did hear from your barrell as well the e.u. high representative for foreign affairs basically the e.u. foreign minister if there ever was to be one he said that the relationship between moscow and brussels went deeper than anything that had to do with alexei navalny that russia's cooperation was needed particularly when it came to situations like the ongoing crisis in the got a card about russia as one of the co-chairs soledad means group to deal with is the fight in northern iraq and i watch. places that mcconnell has to toggle is the
9:22 pm
president we want to work the differing would mean group you know the to look for a ceasefire you know would look at who haitian we're not going to stop doing that to do to the top of these tensions alexina valley is still recovering here in berlin he took a lot of flight from siberia to moscow back on the 20th of august he was brought here to berlin was in they induced coma for a couple of weeks he was roused from math and discharged from hospital the last month and continues to recover but as he's getting better it would seem that there's still plenty of ramifications from whatever happened to him to come with relations to how that relationship between moscow and brussels is going to go from here on out. almost a quarter of americans now say they don't have enough money to see themselves through the next 3 weeks and it's not just in the u.s. where the pandemic has seemingly widened the gap between rich and poor as artie's
9:23 pm
done quarter reports. over a 1000000 people across the globe have died from coronavirus related causes says billions more continue to struggle with the pandemics economic consequences things are looking up for the world's billionaire minority for the 1st time ever their collective wealth has surpassed 10 trillion dollars billionaire wealth equates to a fortune in almost impossible to spend the most well lifetimes of absolute luxury anyone accumulating riches on this scale could easily afford to raise the pay of the employees who generate their wealth will contribute a great deal more in taxes to support vital public services and all the while jobs are disappearing at an alarming rate the super is good even richer will mean the people around the world lost their jobs does not a coincidence this is how their rotten system works might be time for governments to step in right well they already have in fact they're helping the ultra rich get even richer thanks to a loophole in the us as coronavirus relief package the wealthy ended up getting
9:24 pm
around $1700000.00 worth of handouts and another $133.00 large companies received $5000000000.00 more from the treasury as for the u.k. over $20000000000.00 of government stimulus has already gone straight into the pockets of corporations for the rest of humanity it's unfortunate because extreme poverty is only getting closer to home between 88000000 and 150000000 people could fall back into extreme poverty as a result of the pandemic with an additional increase of between 23000000 and 35000000 in 2021 potentially bringing the total number of new people living in extreme poverty to between $110000000.15 the world bank defines extreme poverty is living on less than $1.90 a day so as the ruling class continues to collect the billions of dollars in government charity you have to wonder how exactly society is benefiting as
9:25 pm
a whole from this degree of inequality it is a manifestation of capitalism it is time. how capitalism handles a pandemic you can see a disproportionate impact low income workers have been laid off fired run into unemployment much more than middle and upper income workers capitalist employers are keeping their jobs during an economic downturn but laying off millions of american workers so you automatically if you react to a pandemic that way you worsen the inequality it's the capitalist system and its operation that is in fact the cause of this growing poverty for which there is no excuse up possible or there's a for me this hour i'll be back in the let's say $34.00 and a half minutes with another full of news this is our 2 international.

keep on going to want to make it a wonderful idea why do you know who the hell out of the. elite hope will be but there are also friends that the us are still so but the soul hoping to do something this year. which will. be valuable as i was able allaah will go in the most simple with a lot of that you know we're going to. be stamped out of all ism without capital and you can't have top at all without giving people an interest rate to incentivize them to save. and the reason you do that is that if there is
9:28 pm
a downturn like the coke then there's plenty of seed stock there's plenty of capital in your capital system to smooth it out. if you deface the currency and you interest rates are 0 and there's no incentive to save therefore there's no capital then you don't have dapples of money where you have a cutoff perceived by central banks the worse it gets the more they pay themselves . seemed wrong. but old rules just don't hold. any new gold yet to shape out these days become agitated and engage with equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
