6:05 pm
dramatic but that's not the only thing that affects the hospitals it is the destruction of public services and the destruction of hospitals as well the curfew is 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 a 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 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 they didn't protect people in france but the

fact that they didn't give up 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 the life if any of them all found guilty of that they could face up to choose years in jail and face a fine of 300000 euros at the protests 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. is quick talks with a stream. over the dawning of malaysia airlines flight m h 17 the tragedy which claimed almost 300 lives many of them children took place so we're eastern ukraine in july 24th a murder trial is currently under way involving 3 russians crimean accused of
6:07 pm
involvement re a phenomena are lined up more details to saskia taylor in the studio 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 played the 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
6:08 pm
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 took this 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 to wait in ways they never lend 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 ad the 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

6:10 pm
that russia has played in. do not accept russia russia's materials he is russia's president vladimir putin talking about it whatever the present it doesn't say anything we have. syria we have presented it but no one wants to listen to us unless there is. we will not find the right response to the questions that still remain on. the tragedy of may 17th to the deaths of people. we believe that. such incidents are unacceptable 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 airline and malaysia is supporting.
6:11 pm
the whole investigation and the investigation is politicized from the. we see too much politics indeed the idea was not to find how this happened with all that but you seem to be content. to be in the rush or headed me in a new troop by the examinee and making conclusions we. whole is 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 at mosco says it is open and ready to cooperate with another that services another country services anybody involved in the investigation anybody interested in finding the truth or we got reaction to russia's the solution to quip liability talks with a number of guests including 1st 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. the new conclusive evidence and therefore russia is seeing that despite all the information and data. over by the russian it doesn't make any difference to the fact that that date has been basically made by the dutch this is that russia is that way and that's the source of the frustration which is meant to break 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 was far too early we can see clearly that there is
6:13 pm
a one sided in investigation and of course it's necessary if you want to find out what happened to all evidence original 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. in moving to another headline stories today this spying to agreeing to a ceasefire last week armenia and azerbaijan continue to trade blows in a decade or territorial dispute that suddenly fair and back into life this autumn he said that of travel to a cathedral in accord a cutback that not bears the scars of the conflict. 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

6:18 pm
a psychological point of view it's a real shock for us even though it would seem that we're used to pain of the current conflict has simmered for 3 decades the contested region is mostly inhabited by ethnic armenians but is legally part of azerbaijan and on thursday morning back again claimed its territory had come under fire. the sound of a shell hitting the house version a child of church her according to be a syrian government telling came under bombardment this week both nations than i violating a 6 are the fighting has forced many to flee to safety of those some of the side or to take their chances on rumi. they've been countless attacks this morning they shelled all soldiers here luckily they survived everything we see here and watched the shooting 1st coming from the armenian side and then from site it hit 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. to

6:20 pm
join me every thursday on the alex salmond shill and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics or business i'm show business i'll see you then. hello again britain joined the e.u. in imposing sanctions against 6 russian individuals on one end today over what they say is the nerve agent poisoning of kremlin critic alexina moscow has repeatedly denied it had anything to do with the incident on has vowed to respond to the measure. sidesteps won't be left without
6:21 pm
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 what use 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 funds 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.
6:22 pm
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 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 to oppose 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
6:23 pm
under no obligation to response about. the sanctions were proposed by france and germany in the document put forward burley 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 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
6:24 pm
investigation the russian foreign minister has encouraged his european partners to observe well the set standard of international law he will also use the easier produce of 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 abide 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 an induced coma receiving treatment of a shot at
6:25 pm
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 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 deciding of weakness of the european what it. is just to how the steps. sanction between russia and europe and we so that in europe the institution there is some countries or there is some members of european parliament who want to have a difficult relation you want to make damn sure and between europe and russia. a new coronavirus milestone was passed in the u.k. on whedon's thing after the country clark darpa's highest the early number of infections so far more than 19000 it comes as parliament is turning increasingly to

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 knock the country back down the whole point is to speak to seize this moment now to avoid the misery of another national lockdown it i don't want nothing of course in combating the bars but we are going to do with the local and 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 certainly 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 work are able to have some protections 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 his 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 boris johnson and everyone this is no laughing matter partridge see.
