10:05 am
not going to solve the problem. since the start of the coronavirus crisis nothing was clearly done the number of hospital beds was not increased and it's not the folds of a lack of training nursing staff cannot be magic out of the hat it is the responsibility of all ministers and president well this comes home the same day that the office is in the home of the current health minister on the counter. dr health as well as the former prime minister of france and the former health minister of france well all searched by the police this is part of an investigation the sticking place into whether they handled the crisis at the beginning of the covert 900 demick correctly or not there are allegations that they're facing that they didn't do their job they didn't protect people in france by the fact that they didn't give out face must in fact the advice during the 1st wave of the pandemic was only 12 facemask if you had 19 or you suspected that you had it so they're saying that there was
10:06 am
a problem but they are now facing charges that the huge even voluntary homicides and in danger in the life if any of them are all found guilty of that they could face up to choose years in jail and face a fine of 300000 euros at the protest the nationwide protests taking place across france today health workers once again out on the streets demanding more staff pay in the face of the $19.00 pandemic. the headline story russia has quit talks with a straight in the netherlands over the downing of malaysian airlines flight m 817 the tragedy which claimed almost 300 lives many of them children took place over eastern ukraine and july 24th teen a murder trial is currently underway of 3 russians and one ukrainian accused of involvement outlined more details in the studio with me earlier. it is explained in the document the last straw for russia was the government of the netherlands filing a lawsuit against russia in the european court for human rights alleging mosca had
10:07 am
played their role in the mh 17 passenger airplane crash back in 2014 russia denies all the allegations accusing the now the lens of being interested in only putin all the blame on russia rather than fighting the truth here is the russia's foreign ministry the dutch move is considered yet another blow to russian dutch relations and the hague courts determination contrary to common sense is to continue on the wrong path of unilateral attribution of responsibility to russia for what happened in the sky above donbass such unfriendly acts by the netherlands make it senseless for us to continue to participate in the 3 way consultations responsibility for the breakdown of the consultations those lies are entirely with the hague will receive the netherlands reaction they say they deeply regret that russia to decision but by the way in the same announcement of russia's foreign
10:08 am
ministry it is explained that the only are right now out of this consultation team that they will continue to wait in ways that you have a lens services involved in the investigation 6 years has passed what do we know about the tragedy well i remember that day july 17th 20143 months off to kiev launched what it's called a massive counter terror in eastern ukraine using avocation havea tillery tanks i was there on the ground since day one and i remember how quickly turning into a very bloody deadly operation the situation on the ground was boiling it was really dramatic the real war in fact was raging when these tragedy happened about eastern ukraine the investigation has been going on every since and to today we did not know exactly what had happened these are the key points.
10:09 am
so and together and forces were very quick to accuse. the lens back the position. and according to the joint investigation team the plane was brought down by book surface to air. from the rebel controlled territory but interesting is that no satellite supported. version that russia has played. except russia russia's materials he has a russian president vladimir putin talking about it whatever the present it doesn't
10:10 am
say anything we have. presented no one wants to listen to us and unless there is. we will not find the right response to the questions that still remain on. the tragedy of. the people. would believe that. such incidents are unacceptable so you understand what we hear today from russia's foreign ministry didn't start yesterday all this. misunderstanding has been piling for months and years moscow's have long time reservations about it does anyone else in the. questioning investigation it was malaysia airlines plane and malaysia is supporting. the whole investigation and that investigation is politicized from the. we see too much politics in it the idea was not to find how this happened with all that but you seem to be content.
10:11 am
to be in the on russia had it been a neutral but the examinee and making conclusions we. accept well here we have these who have some political interests in the matter what is important now is that yes russia is out of 3 way consultations at mosco says it is open and ready to cooperate with another that services another country services anybody involved in the investigation and anybody interested in finding the truth. or gut reaction to russia's decision to quit the liability talks of martin doul zones from the job and has left party as well as political analyst chris bambery. most will feel that it judgment has already been made by the dutch and by the australians and that russia is guilty and nor their options should be considered and there is no conclusive evidence of that and therefore russia is saying that
10:12 am
despite all the information and data that's been pounded over by the russians it doesn't make any difference the fact that that verdict has been basically made by the direction is true is that russia is that way and that's the source of the frustration here which is let's break we can see clearly that there is a one sided investigation and of course it's necessary if you want to find out what happened to take all the evidence which are presented doesn't matter by which side are taken into account i would like if the international community of the united nation or anyone who could be independent would really find a way or an instance which independently takes into account every evidence which has brought on the table. while still it has continued between armenia and azerbaijan over the disputed region of nagorno-karabakh despite cease fire or
10:13 am
sound off reports from the cathedral that was hit last week and meet some civilians caught in the crossfire. the war in the going to care about has not just about trivial territorial gains it's a long lasting beauty with lots of bad blood between both sides and recently it has build into a new turf religious this 19th century only savior cathedral was a place where soldiers and volunteers alike used to come and pray before heading into battle that made it a target but it wasn't just soldiers who would come to this church the as area military was battering the town of shushi at that time so i learned and her family decided to hide from the bombs in the cathedrals crypt one place they thought that was safe from the shelling but they were wrong god does not have to now and there were 7 of us including 2 children when the shell hit the cathedral it was deafening there was destruction everywhere masonry fell from the searing that's all i can
10:14 am
remember 2 strikes have literally sing everything in their path the altar the benches and one of the domes have been completely destroyed no place is sacred no place is safe in this war not only was this church hit twice but the 2nd strike injured 3 russian journalists one of them is still in intensive care after spending several days in a coma he believes the hit on them was intentional the streets of shushi bear a striking resemblance to those in other towns of nagorno karabakh it's a place of desolation and despair those who can fight are already on the frontlines those who had somewhere to run already have done but i don't or doesn't have any choice but to stay another story. we have to fit in this small shelter with a kitchen and bathroom in the same place we are too scared to go with doors when we hear the sound of the sirens we are rushing here to hide every even in the reason alone we can hear the shelling people seem to be unfazed by the story state of the
10:15 am
cathedral there's plenty of candles still burning. then the hoff destroying rules of the church people pray for peace to return to this land sooner rather than later because don of reporting from the going to come back. was a bit john's president in the idea of has commented on the damage to got his start touching what he says the incident needs to be investigated and that if it was done by his forces it was unintentional armenia's also accusing us of by john offsetting a hospital in the disputed region on wednesday an attacker who denies one has still if he's fast broke out medical staff for different countries rushed to the region r.t. spoke to some doctors who are currently in the complex say. that the 1st edition it's no easy decision for any doctor to leave behind a content life and go towards us here of course it's not hand to hand combat but
10:16 am
the threat is there every 2nd i just followed my heart i went through the 1st war as a student observed military medicine i gained experience in that my the doctors who saved lives i think it was imprinted on my mind having a broad experience in emergency medicine i didn't want to sit idle with you i wanted to share my experience my knowledge and save any life possible goes over been a bit was going to me at 1st sight these are minor injuries small scratches in fact the x. rays show was splintered bones into her nostrils all this suggests that the weaponry has changed a lot there are a few cases of gunshot wounds here basically these are injuries from explosive mines cluster rockets and so want their high energy explosives which leaf in comparable damage where he's been to my colleagues and i have been here since day one of the war and honestly we work 247 at the hospital i can't understand the enthusiasm of some to continue this war even if people don't die there are still
10:17 am
those seriously injured and adequate response is needed here to ensure a way to. it was a monstrous all wars are appalling it is horrifying health damage the bodies of soldiers are brought in more and more young guys with horrible injuries some will die some will be disabled it is very wholesome a psychological point of view it's a real shock for us even though it seems that we're used to paying. well the back story to this is that renewed conflict broke out over 2 weeks ago but has roots going back 3 decades with on and off about fighting the contested region is mostly inhabited by ethnic communist but is legally part of us a by john here's our government reported again on thursday morning its territory being under fire. you just heard was a shell hitting in the azerbaijani town of turf according to the azeri government the town came under bombardment on wednesday both nations deny inspired since their
10:18 am
option of fighting many people have fled their homes while others have chosen to stay. they've been countless attacks this morning they shelled the soldiers here luckily they survived every evening we see here and watch the shooting 1st coming from the armenian side and then from these areas and then it fell on the roofs of our houses there is no fear soldiers are fighting over there why should we be scared here we should not be scared. in the u.k. has joined the e.u. and imposing sanctions against 6 russian individuals on one entity over what they say is the nub poisoning of russian opposition figure alex involving moscow denies it had anything to do with the incident and has vowed to respond to the measures peter out of our house more. the european council has confident that it will be putting in place sanctions against russia for the alleged poisoning of alexina
10:19 am
violently we pretty much knew this was coming it was approved by the 27 member states foreign ministers on monday the council putting the rubber stamp to it on thursday what the sanctions will do is they'll target 6 senior officials and one organize station they will be taking the form of travel bans. asset freezes they're the type of sanctions the e.u. committee the council can push through unilaterally following the announcement from brussels there was also an announcement from london where the united kingdom has also said that they will be imposing similar sanctions against similar entities for what they say is the use of a chemical weapon by russia now what this is perhaps more interesting for is what the russian reaction will be earlier in the week we heard from said a lover of the russian foreign minister who suggested that there could be a suspension of diplomatic ties between moscow and brussels should the sanctions be
10:20 am
put in place he also said that russia would be assessing how it did business in europe last time there was no growth or pulls the question is not just whether business as usual is possible but whether any business with the european union is possible at all the e.u. behaves arrogantly towards us and looks condescendingly down at russia demanding answers from us for all the crimes it imagines we have committed i think we're under no obligation to respond about. the sanctions were proposed by france and germany in the document put forward berlin and paris say that they're looking to target individuals responsible for the poisoning of mr and the family also a body involved in the chemical weapons program. russia must continue to explain itself over the attack on alexina valmy and the use of a banned chemical warfare agent much more than has been the case so far and we've repeatedly emphasized that such behavior cannot remain without consequences and
10:21 am
therefore sanctions were decided by the e.u. unanimously and very quickly. russia denies the allegations that have been made against it moscow sent for official requests to berlin for germany to share the information the evidence that germany says it has of the poisoning of alexei navalny russian needs that information they say in order to carry out an investigation the russian foreign minister has encouraged his european partners to observe well the set standard of international law if you will so you'll see easier produce of than about any case is totally unacceptable 5 b. you countries claim they have established the truth but when we request them to provide evidence of their conclusions that they say this is outrageous so let me be clear what we want is for the e.u. in germany to abide by international law there are the conventions on cooperation in criminal probes we appeal to those conventions asking germany to abide by the
10:22 am
norms of international law and germany basically replies by saying you know what you have international law but we have our own rules and the rule is this if you don't believe you are guilty it was back in august that alexina found they took ill on a flight from siberia to moscow he was brought here to berlin where he spent 2 weeks in a juice coma receiving treatment of a shot at a hospital he was discharged last week as he continues to recover here in the germ . capital more and more questions are being raised about what exactly happened to him and who was behind what happened to him and the problem the background is that the e.u. or the west in general right now the prevailing mood is not to believe whatever drove or whatever statement comes out of russia whatever trial. they have occupied the high on moral grounds to an extent that almost blinds them to or the beaver's of the specter of points of use in russia sees. completely in the right because
10:23 am
there's no proof there may be not at all a kremlin involvement here maybe just some abstract responsibility by the kremlin which from a european point of view would be enough to. do it or for a verdict against the grim in but then that's the logic around which the escalation develops. across the channel in the u.k. a new coronavirus milestone was passed on wednesday after the country clocked up its highest infection so far more than $1000.00 it comes as westminster as turning increasingly tetchy out the government's handling of the health crisis kate partridge reports from london if coronavirus has taught us and the u.k.'s prime minister one thing is that it's wise not to joke about it during an impromptu meeting of conservative m.p.'s boris johnson reportedly quit the route of 6 social

distancing policy would mean families could escape celebrating christmas with their in-laws one of several attempted gags which apparently fell very flat but while some tories raged the government decisions are bankrupting the nation the opposition are worried that those policies are costing the country lives and labor leaders sakia starmer wants a partial return to lock down the government's plan simply isn't working another course it's needed. that's why i'm calling for a 2 to 3 week circuit breaker in england a circuit breaker is a short period of strict social restrictions aimed at bringing the virus under control this comes after it was revealed the government's scientific advisors urged m.p.'s to impose a fortnight long long down as far back as september the 21st instead johnson and as a 3 tier system of measures including a 10 pm pub curfew and advice to work from home we stood to curbs in the worst hit

areas and he is ready to lock the country back down the whole point is to speak to seize this moment now to avoid the misery of another national lock down and i don't want nothing of course in combating the bars but we are going to do with the local regional approach the policy as indicated by those tory m.p.'s concerns is driven by the vast economic burden of the pound demick one think tanks predicted that almost 3000000 people will be unemployed by christmas after the chancellor's furlough scheme ends on october the search the 1st while more than 2000000 people in england on the government's shielding list and considered vulnerable to coronavirus due to health issues will mostly be told to take precautions but not to stay at home to the anger of patients groups of people who for example are on it was because we're simply not so that social worker able to have some protections
10:26 am
that is how financial protection you talked about that this is a very high risk area such as a little closer like that they are not going to work however there's no protection for these new financial support they may be able to get. only a deal is done locally so actually the choice between whether to go to work on public transport and of course needing to keep her job is very difficult once in a as the situation worsens within the country the government remains on the horns of the ultimate dial emma. how do they save lives without bankrupting the country for various films and i know everyone this is no laughing matter kate partridge artsy london. and finally imagine sea covert bailouts by the international monetary fund could lead to years of a starting off to mouth of the crisis now lots according to oxfam the i.m.f. has so far provided more than 100000000000 dollars worth of covert related help to
10:27 am
$81.00 countries oxfam reviewed a number of those loans and discovered that most encourage countries to adopt belt tightening matches such as increasing taxes and cutting wage bells oxfam's had to find a quality max wilson believes the i.m.f. needs to be more progressive. i think that the managing director of the i.m.f. is he to change the way the army corp seemed to move to help others in the on the earth is trying to do the right thing so i think to say yeah this is profiting from the undemocratic mess a bit stronger i think the world needs the other but we need an i meant it would be progressive you drawings from the army that comes with that irons and often lead to an increase in over to europe then the decrease the i.m.f. offices in countries need to read their own research and they need to learn the lessons of previous crises and know the recommending austerity because austerity
10:28 am
will or people will increase inequality and will make the situation worse not better we need to see a more progressive army that is pushing qualities like the taxation riches do i think that will happen i certainly hope so but i think it would only happen with pressure from outside from camp i mean as around the world and monitoring that they are in their turn over a new and for you to quote it's in their future and the courts and. that's how things are shaping up auto com has many what he tells and many more stories take a peek up next though at the kaiser board. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy on sunday shouldn't let it be an arms race based on often spearing dramatic development only
10:29 am
personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. and sort of amazing country with so many friends in russia and i'm very excited to be here. i love that idea i think i can do that. in different areas to make a lot of money with a good name with millions and hundreds of me. here's the. great wall and nobody feels
10:30 am
a lot better than me believe me and i'll build a very inexpensive like a great great wall. just in case you're worried about who's going to pay for it mexico will pay for. it we'll see what happens who knows jose who knows what we'll see on the field will be a success. oh hi i'm max keiser this is the kaiser report have you ever played high and low poker that's when the low hand and the high hand when so we've got a situation in the global economy right now where in the currency markets various countries are trying to win with the worst possible hand let's see how this works
