country in the world to come up with and stop producing its own vaccine we see an expansion we see nato infrastructure coming closer to our borders shouldn't we respond to this i haven't decided yet whether i will be running for the 2024 election. and french president tests positive for cocaine $1000.00 but he will continue to work remotely during a self isolation period. live direct from our studios in moscow this is our 2 international i'm john thomas certainly glad to have you with us. 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 has been a saga of accusations starting with claims of state sponsored doping to tampering
8:02 pm
with databases peter oliver has of 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 drug tests over a set period of time will be able to compete under a neutral flag they will be able to have the name rusher on their uniforms 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 on 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 guests of honor at the russian side well it's really the best they could have hoped
8:03 pm
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 were 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 agence e and other international sports organizations and rejected sanctions on innocent russian athletes the world anti-doping agency and 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 cast panel did not endorse each and every one of our recommended consequences for the 4 year period we requested this sends a clear message to institutionalize cheating and concerted efforts to subvert the.
8:04 pm
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 it 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 power olympic games in 2022 and no team russia at the fifo world cup in qatar in 2022 where they can still take place because this is only this suspension this ban is only due to fall tall evidence that sign up to water the world anti-doping agency fee for the world governing body of football does you wait for the european governing body of football they do not that means they can be a team russia taking place at next year's european championships st petersburg which is said to be a host city at those championships will remain as the host city and st petersburg
8:05 pm
will also continue to host the 2021 way for champions league final the international olympic committee has said it is ready to hammer out a roadmap for implementing the court ruling earlier we discussed 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 of nobody's particularly thrilled about this but it it's a deal and i'd 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 agency procedures and it will be reintegrated back into world court this appears to be the end of the road technically they could appeal it that could go to the swiss code court but they
8:06 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 it is also the huge going on for control of the teams already so they're trying to play is nice also we've been very very soon you started the usa you know to go be day and day you know all 'd the revelry law and all to its back while we know that we're in state of viruses and not signed into error so you're hoping that this will save the masses who are crying you know for rushing everything and anything always this is not the end this is needed a needle. it is just going to be one of those sensors which is falling down and.
8:07 pm
russian president vladimir putin held his annual q. and a session with journalists and the public on thursday lasting almost 5 hours for the 1st time it was remotely by video link due to covert $1000.00 restriction still the russian leader encompassed all the crucial themes on the minds of the russian public and the media donna was 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 short of 5 hours the range of topics discussed well it literally ranged from some very small and specific issues that affected 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.
8:08 pm
correspondent was about essentially he asked the russian president whether or not he felt at least 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 russia 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 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
8:09 pm
skies treaty so what should we do leave everything as it is you're smart people 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. it was part of a foreign game of essentially over a foreign intelligence operation against the russian government another big topic which absolutely dominated the whole media conference was world covert of and everything about it was asked whether or not he had a job he said no he hadn't because the vaccine for his age group or was not yet fully available and that he would vaccinate himself as soon as this particular type
8:10 pm
of attack seen for the elderly is in abundance russia was the 1st country in the world to come up with and start 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 be offered a position in russia or a shelter in russia a diplomat diplomatic shelter a political shelter the way this is the one that for instance would snowden is enjoying right now so here's how glad i'm a 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
8:11 pm
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 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 slips really the very very tip of the iceberg in a lot of the issues. discussed they were very russia specific but of course crucial and what the russian population really wanted to hear about and normally these media conference is 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 and oh well the people people in power in the regions they may be on feeling. because they know they will be getting a cool so we'll see what comes out out of this particular media conference.

embassy to a prison cell for breaching bail conditions while the extradition hearings continue we heard from the editor in chief of wiki leaks who believes the image of julian a songe should now change. police should have a tremendous weight because it's basically the argument that is in the narrative for the justice department in their indictment and try to use it to get a much of a lovely u.k. you know 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. transcript of for this conversation was presented to the court in september this was unplugged under de 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 no. this would show that there were some

this is our international now the latest in the war on corona an advisory panel to the u.s. food and drug administration has endorsed a 2nd covert 1000 vaccine the shot from madonna is expected to be approved for emergency use shortly the authorization will pave the way for 6000000 doses to start shipping as soon as this weekend. vaccine follows the one from pfizer by intact already given the green light last week the main advantage of the magenta shot is that it can be stored at normal freezer temperatures and therefore it can be distributed more widely. however there are some concerns about the accelerated approval from adana after some safety issues have emerged with pfizer drug to health care workers in alaska have reportedly suffered allergic reactions to the shot with one rushed to intensive care one of the workers who did not have
8:20 pm
a history of allergies remained hospitalized on wednesday night she had an allergic reaction 10 minutes after receiving the vaccine and suffered rashes all over her face and body shortness of breath and elevated heart rate despite getting treatment she was rushed to intensive care in a hospital that administered the injections say they have the cases will not affect its vaccine schedule r.t. also reached out to pfizer for comment they told us that they will closely monitor all reports suggestive of serious allergic reactions following vaccination pfizer also says trial participants were excluded if they had a history of severe adverse reactions associated with any vaccine. the french president has tested positive for covert 1000 officials say will self isolate and continue to work remotely or reports. present not contested positive for 19 the latest world leader to do so that was because the palace said that he
8:21 pm
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 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 politically 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 the president might call him and he is also self isolating now this comes of course as france is
8:22 pm
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 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 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 4th by mass vaccination from
8:23 pm
january this 1st face will last 6 to 8 weeks well there's a bit of a problem with this because people have been huge 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 a large section of french society who are not keen to line up for that vaccination for code that 19 surveys have shown that there is sort of this disconnect with the french public and the latest one showing that around the hoff of 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 the president my corn had 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
8:24 pm
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 that the president of the senate would take from his d.t.'s but for the moment president mack corn is tested positive for 19 but it said that his symptoms are only mild by that as for me this i'll be back in let's say 36 minutes with another look at your news international stay with us. from there to paris got to know that we have to refer to. their
