they're putting themselves in at the moment and they demanding a massive recruitment drive and a significant pay increase now own wing's the night president a good knowledge the health workers aust facing a toy situation this is what he had to say. our emergency rooms and our hospitals are in a more worrying situation than in march because we don't have a reserve of beds which is why we have to take measures that are more strict. now in a bid to try and ease the pressure on the hospitals in the fact that there are sometimes more than 20000 people a day testing positive for 19 with a few 100 people a day gluing into hospitals present i know that there would be a few in the worst hit areas of frogs that is no new regions across the country including here in paris is going to come into force on saturday and it will be activated from 9 pm every evening until 6 am in the morning those people who are

11:05 am
clearly done the number of hospital beds was not increased and it's not the fault of a lack of training nursing staff cannot be magic out of a hat it is the responsibility of our ministers and president. well this comes home the same day that the office is in the home of the current health minister and the current director of health as well as the former prime minister of france on the former health minister of france all searched by the police this is part of an investigation the seeking place into whether they handled the crisis at the beginning of the 19 per 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 but the fact that they didn't give out facemask 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 a problem but they are now facing charges that they. even voluntary homicide and in

danger in the life if any of them are all found guilty of that they could face up to 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 pandemic. another headline story for you russia has quit talks with a stranger on the netherlands over the downing of malaysian airlines flight m h 17 the tragedy which claimed almost 300 lives many of them children took place over in eastern ukraine in july 24th teen a murder trial is currently underway of 3 russians and one ukrainian accused of involvement earlier on in the day murtha notion outlined all the details. 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 mosco had
11:07 am
played their role in the mh 17 passenger airplane crash back in 2014 and 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's the russia's foreign minister 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 entirely with the hague will receive the netherlands the reaction they say they deeply regret that russia to decision but by the way in the same announcement of russia's foreign ministry it is explained that the only are right now out of this consultation team
11:08 am
that they will continue cooperating with the netherlands 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 called a massive counter terror in eastern ukraine using advie ation 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 to bob 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.
11:09 am
so and together and forces were very quick to accuse. the lens back of the position. and according to the joint investigation team the plane was brought down by book surface to air fired from the rebel controlled territory but interesting is that no satellite supported. version that russia. did not accept russia and russia's materials he has a russian president vladimir putin talking about it whatever the present doesn't
11:10 am
say we have. syria we have presented it but no one wants to listen to us unless there is dialogue we will not find the right response to the questions that still remain on. the tragedy of 17 related to the deaths of people we mourn these deaths and we believe that. such incidents are unacceptable so you understand what we hear today from russia's foreign ministry didn't start yesterday all this lead. and has been piling for months and years long time reservations about it does anyone else in the. questioning investigation it was malaysia airline plane and malaysia is supporting. the whole investigation and that the lens led investigation is politicized from the. we see too much politics indeed the idea was not to friend how would this happen when all the but you seem to be content.
11:11 am
to be in the on russia had it been a neutral but the examinee and making conclusions we. are always willing to accept but 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 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. well throughout the day we got reaction to russia's decision to quit the liability talks fast with martin dolls or his from germany's left party as well as with 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 norther option should be considered and the new conclusive evidence and therefore russia is saying that despite all the information and data. over by the russians it doesn't make any just
11:12 am
a difference to the fact that that verdict has been basically made by the dutch the stroh's that russia is that way and that's the source of the frustration which is led to the 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 all 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. despite agreeing a ceasefire last week i mean a azerbaijan continue to trade blows in a decades old territorial dispute that suddenly flashed back into life well you got son of has travelled to
11:13 am
a cathedral and want to cap it now bears the scars of the conflict and it's locals who suddenly find themselves living and it was a. the war in the going to care about has not just about trivial territorial gains it's a long lasting it with lots of bad blood between both sides and recently it has spilled 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 cathedral script one place they thought that was safe from the shelling but they were wrong. does not it now 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 they can remember 2
11:14 am
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 front lines those who had somewhere to run already have done but alone or doesn't have any choice but to stay another story. we have to fit in this small shelter with a kitchen and badger 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
11:15 am
we can hear the shelling people seem to be unfazed by the story state of the cathedral there's plenty of candles still burning within the half destroyed walls of the church people pray here for peace to return to this land sooner rather than later english than of reporting from the going to care about r.t. . it was about john's president has said and investigations needed into how the historic church in a corner was hit and he claimed that if that was done by his forces then it was unintentional i mean it was also accusing us of a john of setting his hospital on wednesday in attack back into life when his still it is fast erupted international medical staff offered to help but we heard from some of those now in the conflict. that impressed addition it's no easy decision for any doctor to leave behind a content life and go to war here of course it's not hand to hand combat but the threat is there every 2nd i just followed my heart i went through the 1st war as
11:16 am
a student observed military medicine i gained experience and admired 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 i wanted to share my experience my knowledge and save any life possible goes over been a bit was going to at 1st sight these are minor injury 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 one they're high energy explosives which leaf in comparable damage where 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 those seriously
11:17 am
injured and adequate response is needed here to ensure a way to end all of this. was a monstrous all wars are appalling it is horrifying health damage the bodies of soldiers of that 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 the we're used to paying well let's just recap quickly so the current conflict has simmered for 3 decades and has frequently boiled over another contested region is mostly inhabited by ethnic armenians but is legally part of a page on the as our government reported again on thursday morning that the territory had come under fire. while found you just heard was a shell exploding in the our azerbaijani town of tata according to the azeri government the town came on to bombardment on wednesday however both nations deny violating the cease fire the fighting has forced many to flee to safety although
11:18 am
some have to fight it to take their chances and stay behind they've been countless attacks this morning they shelled the soldiers here luckily they survived everything we see here and watch the shooting 1st coming from the armenian side and then from inside these areas and then it fell on the roofs of our houses there is no fear our soldiers are fighting over there why should we be scared here we should not be scared. let's head to europe because the u.k. has joined the e.u. in imposing sanctions against 6 russian individuals and one entity over what they say is the nerve agent poisoning of opposition figurehead alex a funny moscow tonight that had anything to do with the incident and has vowed to respond to the measures. because michigan year sidesteps won't be left without a suitable response we would like to remind you that it was believed in which is openly shared in its international responsibilities to assist russia in
11:19 am
investigating the incident which happened to russian citizens and used this story to deliver accusations on to meetings and threats against our country once again taking the lead role in empty russian sanctions among the e.u. and other international bodies for the european council has come for and that it will be putting in place sanctions against russia for the alleged poisoning of alexina 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 warn organization 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
11:20 am
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 serbia 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 put in place he also said that russia would be assessing how it did business in europe last there was no go through a pause 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 response about. the sanctions were proposed by france and germany in the document put forward berlin and paris say that they're looking to
11:21 am
target individuals responsible for the poisoning of mr novelli 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 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 russia 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 and standard of international law he will also use the ease
11:22 am
approach to the novotny case is totally unacceptable 5 e.u. countries claim they have established the truth but when we request them to provide evidence of their conclusions 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 probe we appeal to those conventions asking germany to bide by the 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 alexei in the family took ill on a flight from siberia to moscow he was brought here to berlin where he spent 2 weeks in and then joost coma receiving treatment of the shot at a hospital he was discharged last week as he continues to recover here in the german capital more and more questions are being raised about what exactly happened to him and who was behind what happened to him everybody is
11:23 am
a little bit surprised that we saw out any of the results only prove you decided to sanction and this decision in fact is the sign of weakness of the european what it. is just to how steps. sanction between russia and europe and we so that in europe institution there is some countries there is some members of european parliament who want to have. really sure you want to make damn sure and between europe and russia. well let's head across the channel to the u.k. because a new coronavirus milestone was passed on wednesday after the country clocked up its highest daily infections so far more than $1000.00 it comes as westminster is turning increasingly techy at the government's handling of the health crisis reporting from the capital. if coronavirus has taught us the u.k.'s prime

the anger of patients groups of people who for example are on it was because we're simply not at it so you know work are able to have some protections that is how financial protection you talked about that is in very high risk areas such as a little somewhere 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 one to me 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 for the south i magine see covert bad odds by the international monetary fund could lead to years of
