12:05 pm
is not going to solve the problem. since the start of the koreans are screaming says 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 our ministers president. well this comes on 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 well all searched by the police this is part of an investigation that's taking place into whether they handled the crisis at the beginning of the $900.00 demick correctly or not there are allegations that they're facing that they didn't do their job it didn't protect people in france but 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
12:06 pm

12:07 pm
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 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 is the russia's foreign minister in the dutch movies 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
12:08 pm
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 that they will continue 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 after kiev launched what it called a massive counter terror in eastern ukraine using at the asian 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 above 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.
12:09 pm
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 missile fired from the rebel controlled territory but interesting is that no satellite supported. version that russia. did not
12:10 pm
accept russia and russia's materials he has a russian president vladimir putin talking about it whatever the present. we have. syria we have presented it but no one wants to listen to us and 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 and 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 let this misunderstanding has been piled in for months and years 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 the investigation is politicized from the. we see too much
12:11 pm
politics indeed the idea was not to find how did this happen when all that but you seem to be concerned that it needs to be in the on russia had it been a neutral by the examinee and making conclusions we. all is willing to accept but here we have these who have some political interest 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 in other countries services anybody involved in the investigation anybody interested in finding the truth. or been getting reaction to russia's decision to quit the liability talks fast from martin dolls are of the job he's left party as well as international affairs commentator marco got sick and political analyst chris bambery. most will feel that
12:12 pm
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 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 meant to russia. is very sensible to pull out it should not pull them actually the dutch need to answer the question as to why they were taking this process beyond the investigation they were running with the russians at one point and the australians there was a little triumvirate that was looking into the matter and then the dutch ran away from that investigation and decided to kick it up stairs to the european court of human rights why it's far too early we can see clearly that there is a onesided in investigation and of course it's necessary if you want to find out
12:13 pm
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 is brought on the table. on the floor now despite agreeing a ceasefire last week armenia and azerbaijan continue to trade blows in a decades old territorial dispute that suddenly flashed back into life. has travelled to a cathedral and wanted that now bad the scars of the conflict and meets locals who suddenly find themselves living in a wall saying. 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 spilled into a new turf religious this 19th century only savior cathedral was
12:14 pm
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 a syrian 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. 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 they can remember 2 strikes have literally eating 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
12:15 pm
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 have a story in mind 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 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 hoff destroying rules of the church people praying for peace to return to this land sooner rather than later because done of reporting from the going to come back. was
12:16 pm
a by john's president has said an investigation of needed end to how about historic touching when it was hit and he claimed that if it was done by his forces it was unintentional i mean it was also accusing us of a john of setting a hospital on wednesday and attack back who deny whether his says he thought it was up to international medical stuff offer to help well we heard from some of those now in the conflict saying. that in your best edition 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 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 i wanted to share my experience my knowledge and save any life possible goes over been
12:17 pm
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 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 injured and adequate response is needed here to ensure a way to end all of this. was a monstrous all wars are. hauling it's 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
12:18 pm
a real shock for us even though it seems that we're used to pain. well let's just talk about the back story to this the current conflict has simmered for 3 decades and is frequently boiled over the 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 that sound you just heard was a shell hitting as a beach on the town of tata according to theory government the town came on the bombardment of what they want to deny violate the cease fire the fighting has of course forced many to flee to safety although some have decided to take that chances remain behind. because they've been countless attacks this morning they shelled the soldiers here luckily they survived every evening we see here and watched the shooting 1st coming from the armenian side and then from these areas
12:19 pm
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. of the u.k. has joined the e.u. in imposing sanctions against 6 russian individuals on one entity over what they say is the nerve agent poisoning opposition figure in a felony moscow denies it had anything to do with the incident and has vowed to respond to the measures. 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 internationalist possibilities to assist russia in investigating the incident which happened to russian citizens and if used this story to deliver accusations. 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 confident that it will
12:20 pm
be putting in place sanctions against russia for the alleged poisoning of alexina violently 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 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 again lover of the russian foreign minister who suggested that there could be
12:21 pm
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 time there was no go through a process 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 those 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 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
12:22 pm
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 standard of international law he will also use the easy approach than avowedly cases 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 all we want is for the e.u. in germany to abide by international law there are the conventions on cooperation
12:23 pm
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 a 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 a little bit surprised that we saw out any of the results only prove you decide to sanction and this decision in fact is the sign of weakness of the european there is just too how the steps. sunshine
12:24 pm
between russia and europe and we saw that in europe institution there is some countries or there is some members of european parliament who want to have. really sure you want to make damn sure and between europe and russia. what are some covert news that we can't not talk about it a new coronavirus milestone was passed in the u.k. on wednesday after the country clocked up its highest daily infection so far more than 19000 it comes as westminster is turning increasingly tetchy the government's handling of the health crisis reporting from the capital his cape partridge if coronavirus has taught us and the u.k.'s prime minister one thing it's 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
12:25 pm
which apparently fell very flat but while some tories rage that government decisions are bankrupting the nation the opposition are worried that those policies are costing the country lives and labor leaders to care start a partial return to lock down the government's plan simply isn't working or not of course is 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 sweetie a system of measures including a 10 pm pub curfew and advice to work from home with stricter curbs in the worst hit areas and he is ready to lock the country back down the whole point is to speak
12:26 pm
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 virus but we are going to do with the most of the 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 surgery 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 at it so you know we're going to have some protections that is how financial protection you talked about that this is a very high risk area such as that it's
12:27 pm
a little cool so we're like that they are not going to work however there's no protection for this 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 di lemma. how do they save lives without bankrupting the country for virus chillness and and everyone this is no laughing matter kate partridge oxy numb to. all sticking with the theme emergency covert bad outs by the international monetary fund could lead to years of a star is he in the off the mouth of the crisis not according to oxfam the i.m.f. has so far provided more than $100000000000.00 worth of covert renee to help to $81.00 countries oxfam refute a number of those writings and discovered that most encourage countries to adopt
12:28 pm
about tightening masses which will come up things like increasing taxes cutting wage bills oxfam's head of inequality max rules and believes the i.m.f. needs to be more progressive i think that the managing director of the i.m.f. is keen to change the way the elemental pray and to do more to help others in the i.m.f. is trying to do the right thing so i think to say the end of his profiting from the pandemic i think mess a bit stronger i think may well it means the on the that we need and i meant there will be progressive unit drawings from the i.m.f. that comes with their loans 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 will or people will increase inequality and will make the situation worse and not
12:29 pm
better we need to see a more progressive on america 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 in monitoring that the i.m.f. turn over a new name and for you to quote it's in there in the courts and. well bottle from me for today but don't worry because you know neil will be here at the top the hour with the very latest and i know if you want to join us for me. join me every thursday on the elec simon short and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm showbusiness i'll see you then.
12:30 pm
it was a very nice show from president putin and i could have said no thank you or i could have said thank you and i said i'll take it and now it's time to introduce my it's not special close to mr donald trump thank you susan very much for the. name whatever you want to name i mean i don't know how would i come that the news that's dishonest telecoms that a recorder or networks and totally dishonest c.n.n. is says you know 100 percent negative i clearly there's a change fast changes so sometimes i'll say that's going to be a great story be a pretty good report and others good as you. will see what happens.
