3:01 pm
see an expansion we see nato infrastructure coming close it's well. shouldn't we respond to this i haven't decided yet whether i will be running for the 2024 election. the french president manuel test positive for cocaine for 19 baht he will continue his role remotely during a self isolation period. when live from the russian capital this is our national guard while confront everyone here at h.q. and moscow toughie. well starting us off this hour sports top court has rejected an appeal by russia's anti doping agency after the world governing body banned its athletes from competing at international events it's been a saga of accusations starting with claims of state sponsored tampering with
3:02 pm
databases speech all over the story. 2 year ban certainly a lot better than a 4 year ban however you look at it there is some on happiness from the russian side that they say a number of their points weren't listened to the world governing body had wanted a 4 year ban the court of arbitration for sport opting for 2 years instead what it means though is that clean athletes those that can prove that they've passed drugs tests over a set period of time will be able to compete under a neutral flag they will be able to have the name russia on their uniforms and their uniforms can also bear the the russian trickle flag even though that flag can't be flown those tournament's and the russian national anthem also can't be at those tournament either hope that's all very clear russian officials in sport also won't be able to take part in tolerance over that period of time but can be invited
3:03 pm
guests of on at the russian sides well it's really the best they could have hoped for as i said it's better than the original 4 year ban but they still say that there was a number of points they put forward that weren't listened to by the court as we understand not all our points were heard but we do welcome a responsible and reasonable approach towards clean russian athletes and a principle of collective responsibility imposed by water towards all russian sports the court acted fair when agreed with the logic of the russian side open agence e and other international sports organizations and rejected sanctions on innocent russian athletes the world anti-doping agency aren't happy they wanted this to be a 4 year ban to send a big message to to anybody considering doping in the future wilder is pleased to have won this landmark case we are however disappointed that the cas panel did not endorse each and every one of our recommended consequences for the 4 year period we
3:04 pm
requested this sends a clear message that institutionalized cheating and concerted efforts to subvert the. global anti doping system will not be tolerated so what will these restrictions mean it'll mean they'll be no team russia the tokyo olympics that have be rescheduled for next year and the paralympic games will be taking place in 2021 also also no team russia at the beijing winter olympics and paralympics games in 2022 and no team russia at the fifo world cup in qatar 2022 where they can still take place because this is only this suspension this ban is only due for tall evidence that sign up to water the world anti-doping agency fee for the world governing body of football does you a for the european governing body of football they do not that means there can be a team russia taking place at next year's european championships st petersburg
3:05 pm
which is said to be a host city at those championships will remain as the host city and st petersburg will also continue to host the 2021 year way for champions league final. the international olympic committee has said it is writing to hammer out a roadmap for implementing the court ruling wailea we discuss the implications with media and sports experts. if the 4 your band had still been in place it would be the most severe punishment in the history of sport. so a reduction to 2 years are ok nobody's particularly thrilled about this but it it's a deal and i take care to say. this is the end of the road after 2 years presumably russia will be compliant with the war that the doping agencies procedures and it will be reintegrated back into world sport this appears to be the end of the road technically they could appeal it they could go to the swiss folklore court but they
3:06 pm
would have to show new evidence which i don't think there is any or that there have been some kind of procedural irregularities in other words a technical problem again i don't imagine that there are any and even if it did get to the swiss federal court it's by no means sure that they would go against the court of arbitration i think more southern lawyer do you know of the just lost patience because remember there's also the huge battle going on for control of the teams already so they're trying to play this least possible before very very soon you'll see the usa you know to go be day they have all 'd their referee lined all to its back while we know that ranch 8 of us has been in that side and error so you're hoping that this will save the masses who are fighting for russia. everything and anything or worse this is not the end this is needed in
3:07 pm
middle. it is just going to be one of those sensors and you know that russia is falling down and. russian president vladimir putin has finished his annual q. and a session with janice on the public lasting just i thought 4 hours now for the 1st time it was remote by video link you took over 19 still 2 the russian leader in compassed all the crystal themes on the minds of the russian public media or standoffs been there for us at the residence of the russian president. it wasn't just a media conference it was a full on marathon which gyration fill literally a few only a few minutes maybe only a few 100 russians living in a remote village to some huge geo political aspects which could send ripples all over the world and the latter was what the question over the b.b.c. correspondent was about essentially he asked the russian president whether or not he felt at least
3:08 pm
a little bit at least partially responsible for the rather poor state of relations between russia and some western nations namely the united states and the united kingdom he also asked whether or not putin thought that was quote unquote all white and fluffy here is what florida putin had to say to that. yes we are peaceful and calm nato promised it wouldn't expand to the u.s. but didn't deliver on this we see an expansion we see nato infrastructure coming closer to our borders shouldn't we respond to this who quit the antiballistic missile treaty it wasn't ours so we have to invent brand new types of weapons to protect us from a possible threat and then our american colleagues left the i.n.f. treaty again not ours you know it's our partners then they withdrew from the open skies treaty so what should we do you leave everything as it is you're smart people
3:09 pm
so why do you think we are dumb. recently an investigation by belling caddick used russia and vladimir putin personally of using a military grade talks in so-called novi chalk against a prominent opposition figure in russia elects in a valley so glad i'm a putin said that he believed that that particular investigation was part of a foreign game of essentially of a foreign intelligence operation against the russian government another big topic which. absolutely dominated the whole media conference was world covert action and everything about it was asked and whether or not he had a job he said no he hadn't because the vaccine for his age group who was not yet fully available and that he would vaccinate himself as soon as this particular type of attack seen for the elderly is in abundance russia was the 1st country in the
3:10 pm
world to come up with and stop producing its own vaccine is 95 percent effective not a single serious case of side effects far and colleagues are ready to work with us i'd be glad for a world renowned specialist to join forces with russian partners i'm sure the result will be good. again another in your face question for vladimir putin asking literally as to will donald trump will be offered a position in russia or a shelter in russia a diplomat diplomatic shelter and political shelter the way this is the one that for instance would snowden is enjoying right now so here's how putin addressed that question. russian hackers have never helps any american president get elected and never interfered in the domestic affairs of the usa these allegations are all used to make relations between our 2 nations worse to undermine the legitimacy of the still incumbent president of the us and in this case now our bilateral relations
3:11 pm
are hostage to american domestic issues all of these topics and we still just very very barely scratch the very surface of what has been discussed here in the past well almost 5 hours it's literally the very very tip of the iceberg and a lot of the issues discussed today were very russia specific but of course crucial and what the russian population really wanted to hear about and normally. these major conferences they don't just and now it means that there will be a lot of work done there will be a lot of phone calls a lot of discussions this and a lot of governors around the world people people in power in the regions they may be on feeling too easy they because they know they will be getting a cool so we'll see what comes out of this particular media conference. coming on a tape reveals that julian assange tried to warn u.s.
3:12 pm
officials of an limit the widespread internet releases of us information back in 2011 the tape has been revealed by conservative in fact of an outlet project for a task on the record salinger allegedly speaks to cliff johnson who was in a tiny state department. i think over time. become. a. hurricane to. spread around. to. the grid you thought. you were going to. become public. ability. one of songs goes on to say that classified cables had been stolen by a former wiki leaks colleague and we're being quote spread around the internet so
3:13 pm
we can express concerns over a possible danger to u.s. government employees and he suggested covertly remove the files from me and not and offer to help track them down but it appears that officials failed to take action on the information that he provided they leaked information when told to be known as cable gates more than 250000 classified u.s. state department cables were released into the public to maine it contained data on u.s. officials as well as information about washington's foreign policy and secret operations abroad well despite his efforts a song extradition to the us i mean 2012 took refuge in london's ecuadorian embassy he was on treves to gay should by washington for his role and quote publishing documents on possible u.s. will crimes in iraq and afghanistan last year british police dragged him from the
3:14 pm
embassy to a prison cell for breaching bail conditions while the extradition hearings continue we had from the editor in chief of wiki leaks itself who believes the image of today in the songs should not change. tremendous weight because basically you are a. amount that is said in the narrative for the justice department in their indictment and which they are try to use them to get them actually lovely u.k. they were talking about irresponsible behavior and putting lives at risk now this evidence that you heard and i can confirm that this is authentic is not new to the courts in the u.k. and transcript of for this conversation was presented to the court in september this was unheard under to julian's control or weaken his control this was betrayal by a former partner and a betrayal by a former media partner of the guardian now this should show that there was create
3:15 pm
care taken and trying to avoid any harm but that offer was was ignored the state department never came back to julian for more information and seem to have not done anything based on these warnings and keep in mind that wiki leaks and julian were not the primary publisher of the of these material at that time it was only after that that we can leave the entire unit. it was only after all these warnings to the state departments which postulate the 1st one was on offer over to you earlier to the state department to cooperate so it's totally goes against the narrative in the indictment and to totally goes to show with that we can lease and julian assaults that the aiding like a very responsive to serial through that area. still had on the program the president of france says the latest attack in europe to test positive for the cry to fire us we'll talk about that and much more after
3:16 pm
a short break. when else shows seem wrong. why don't we all just don't call. me. yet to stamp out these days to come after. and in detroit because the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. universes reveal. information presence. that is the reality of this thing we call matter you can hear to hear can change shape you can touch it it shapes sold a. bunch a looser decal or about it. join
3:17 pm
me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. welcome back now the french president has tested positive for cave 19 officials say a mine while micro will self isolate now and continue to walk remotely from paris its shotting penske. present not contested positive for coke at 19 the latest world leader to do so that was because the palace said that he presented with some mild symptoms so apparently he had a dry cough and a fever he will now self isolate as is the rule here in france for the next 7 days
3:18 pm
but he will of course continue to carry out his functions as the head of state but he will do so remotely now the fact he's tested positive for 19 has many ramifications particularly for ministers here in france and other individuals who have met him but also other european leaders we've heard in the last few hours that the belgian prime minister the portuguese prime minister and the spanish prime minister all had contact with mr mack on in the last few days and they will all now be self isolating we also heard that the president of the european council shall michel although he doesn't consider himself to have been a contact case he was at that european summit earlier this week with president mack on and he is also self isolating now this comes of course as france is battling with the virus a few weeks ago president said he hoped by this point in december we would be seeing around 5000 positive new cases every day the figure is still above 10000 every day and because of that france has had to delay
3:19 pm
a some of the lifting of the strictures it had hoped to do on december 15th including opening cultural places they won't now be opening until at least january of next decision taken that are around the 7th but there is this hope that's being pinned on the fact that this vaccine. could be approved for use in europe in the next few weeks the prime minister who is also now in self isolation after meeting president machen was at the national assembly yesterday where he was outlining the timeline for hopefully administering that jap to duplicate. this yourself all conditions are met the 1st marks a nation could be from the last week of december formed by mass vaccination from january this 1st place will last 6 to 8 weeks well there's a bit of a problem with this because people have been to do their civic duty in the past by the prime minister to go and have the job but it does seem as if there is
3:20 pm
a large section of french society who are not keen to line up for that vaccination for 19 days have shown that there is sort of this disconnect with the french public and the latest one showing that around to hoffa's individual surveyed said that they would not be getting the job now they've cited concerns such as effectiveness of the serum unwanted side effects and the fact that they perhaps mistrust vaccines generally that's a theme that we've heard a lot about here in france now present my corn have said previously that he would get the vaccine but only when it was the right time to do so and he said that he wouldn't make that vaccine mandatory of course all eyes on how the president continues in terms of his health with this virus but there is a sense that there are plans in place if he does become ill with covert 900 seriously ill than it seems the president of the senate would take from his d.t.'s
3:21 pm
but for the moment president matt corn has tested positive for 19 but he said that his symptoms are only mild. while another blow to pfizer's that covert vaccine to health care while because an alaska reporter is offered a logic reactions to the shot with one rushed to intensive care now one of the workers who did not have a history of allergies remained in hospital on wednesday night she had no logic reaction 10 minutes after receiving the vaccine and suffered rushes all over her face body shortness of breath and an elevated heart rate despite getting treatment she was rushed to intensive care as we said the woman is now apparently making a recovery but as caleb maupin reports this is far from the 1st disturbing news on the shop. now the reports that we have received indicate that the person did not have a history of severe allergic reactions now this comes on the heels of reports about
3:22 pm
2 health care workers in the united kingdom who both had severe reactions to the vaccine as well and that caused the united kingdom to actually issued this warning any person with a history of a significant reaction to a vaccine myths and should not receive the fine is appealing to it's important to note that when pfizer looked into the case they did emphasize that the 2 individuals in the united kingdom did have a history of allergic reactions the f.d.a. of the united states has gone ahead and approve pfizer is vaccine but made clear that it is only available to those who are 16 years of age or older and who don't shouldn't be given to people with a history of severe allergic reactions and at this point we have got some very prominent officials praising this new jab that's available to fight against cove it today our nation has achieved a medical miracle we have delivered a safe and effective vaccine in just 9 months this is one of the greatest
3:23 pm
scientific accomplishments in history we have these reports about the health care worker in alaska so people are waiting for more information many are concerned about this vaccine will it be safe will it actually put an end to the pandemic as some have predicted so many are keeping their eye on this situation is certainly disturbing news to hear that a health care worker has had an adverse effect. while the hospital but administered the shot save the case says it won't affect its vaccine schedule we've also reached out for comment from pfizer itself they've got back to us saying that they will closely monitor reports suggestive of serious allergic reactions following up vaccination pfizer also claims trial participants were excluded if they had a history of severe reaction associated with the vaccine. funny for this hour despite being overwhelmed with high casualty rates in the pandemic sweden's parliament has okayed a massive wreck would rise in military spending and the defense ministries excuse
3:24 pm
well it's russia is because of the new security situation with room for growth and toward you or your. conflict in ukraine or to do some below. the russian military capability who are complicit exercises. in the indoor to both. so so we see a new security war ready to use military rules to fulfill political goals and the next 5 years defense spending will jumpsuit 100 percent to $11000000000.00 it's being called the country's biggest military budget boost and want in history the armed forces will get up to 90000 new soldiers and the number of conscripts will double when all this comes despite the country admitting the pandemic seriously limited the economy with waste 8000 dead 235-0000 k.
3:25 pm
says the country's statistics are multiple times worse than its neighbors like denmark finland norway of course we discussed the situation room swedish professor emeritus of at the genealogy. denali. so you know to begin of this pandemic was depleted or. of such and. it is secure units of course. that money should be better used so to speak in a decent and there are sons and also in 100 schools and and health care. in duration limited success that are separate but he can hardly a got howley surprise me that it is so despite him and would have decided to increase divided but that extent it is absolutely not the surprise soon and it is already but speaking in the huge in may here are over asians have rolled under the
3:26 pm
military command of the united states or so their geopolitical reasons there are there are going to respond and then maybe even into you know they are the least you know the senate thing all for that area assuming they push it but it is sort of governing the last year in the atlantic area more investment in incarnates the industrial would mean more sales increase in sales to countries rich countries latest this is saudi arabia and then and then united emulates for them to continue for them to increase even more. divonne being very old for a country which is yemen. that's a wrap for this hour thanks for keeping us company auto call us thought oh they are late to stories to check it out and i hope to see you.
3:27 pm
as a. teacher moving into those that are doing just that it just means that. you don't mind it just became a zone on the. channels all. the time you can look them up if you know for a long today my country not in the least i'm upset the map got paid off for. a bunch of us the economy to have more than a last step is that. will slow down the months to get an up close look i mean that i'm so i'm going to. miss home i'm. going to. turn over the most i'm going to. look at what's called the minimal point of. going to come up thinking i come up each time she comes home to go missing i'm just going to give up we have to get out what am i doing going to happen.

3:30 pm
it's like a potemkin telecom system we have a potemkin economy we have a potemkin monetary system none of it is real our dollars are not backed by gold it's not backed by even productivity or g.d.p. it's backed by men with guns and i suppose that's a bit real but the fact is that we're just faking it like it's fake goods were have a fake high tech and that's harder and then like when china rose to power on a lot of fake goods they had fake also beef buns pork buns in the south for sale and beijing that we've discussed over the years but when you're doing heights hack it's really hard of much harder to fake it right because things go seriously wrong a lot of high tech is interconnecting various devices around the world so.
