no chance to give it a shot to western countries change the tune on russia's sputniks a vaccine after leading magically jonell publishes a study about its height at the cacique we hear from the c.e.o. of the fund backing the job when you come by and see you know the price of logistics you really know what i believe is the best picture the world and me sign to systems of all degrees. meanwhile despite a wave of criticism european commission president not to abandon them refuses to apologize for the prox vaccine rollout. also to cause western nations are quick to condemn a russian force ruling to jail opposition they got to say to validate and mostly says they should mind that business.
3:01 am
around the clock to keep you in the loop this is all it seen international hello and welcome from the whole team caramel sky. what our 1st story this hour is how moscow. i'm. mexico has become the latest country to officially approve the russian a covert vaccine with millions of doses set to be delivered in the coming months that comes hot on the heels of a new study in the lancet magical jonell which has filed sputnik seemed to be more than 90 percent effective meanwhile over in europe punk 3 which was the 1st e.u. country to approve sputnik he has already received its 1st batch of the shot as part of a 2000000 deal other key states in the block france and germany are awaiting a decision by the regulator. anyone who plans to the european medical
3:02 am
agency flu approval is welcome i talked with the russian president exactly about this we noted the good data today and the russian vaccine any vaccine is welcome in the european union but only ones that give the necessary data to the european medicines agency will be approved in. several weeks ago i sent a scientific mission to russia in order to exchange data with the teams the we saw today data indicating a very strong efficiency of the sputnik vaccine but we can distribute it in front of the russian producers submit a request to all thor it says it's normal it's a matter of health care responsibility well even before the lancet article russian scientists had been insisting that sputnik there was both safe and effective but didn't stop it from receiving away from criticism in the west but as more a 1000 if explains even some of the storm just critics are now having a change of heart and finally ready to give sputnik a shot. barely
3:03 am
a few months ago the cure was sold to us as was the new disease they mocked sputnik we they don't ride did it they tried to turn it into a joke but with out of these 3 mass trial completed it sounds like the process hasn't run its course here america's top researchers say russia's cutting corners to develop its corona virus vaccine they're still trying to figure out safety and there they've approved it the irony is of course that these same people the same people who accused russia of spreading vaccine conspiracies and of discouraging people to get the job the irony is often lost on these sorts this is c.n.n. in a tube so you know that they're trying to trash talk it when they start by calling it putin's vaccine which was apparently dangerous and unreliable reading between the lines this is c.n.n. now and somehow sputnik has become safe and potent one of only 3
3:04 am
vaccines with an efficacy of over 90 percent it's cheaper it's easier to produce and to transport and side effects don't include catatonic allergic sieges what the trials showed us 91.6 percent episodes of exceeding 91.8 percent effort is required truly people older than 60 years old and also in law the important part of the vaccine it's affordable and it's easy to distribute around the world because humankind big scenes because it can distort the last 2 plus feet versus minus 70 degrees celsius required by some us big scenes and of course half a one 3rd of the u.s. would seem so when you combine safety advocacy price and logistics you really have what i believe is a best of acute in the world and me scientists in the world agree the lancet medical journal has published preliminary results for things 3. trials of sputnik
3:05 am
and their good mild side effects if any doesn't require a deep freeze so more widely available to poorer nations when russian scientists said all of this it was met with our roles and mockery but when the other side to say the same thing they all nod sagely in agreement this is clearly good news as these geo formulation vaccine is comparatively easy to manufacture and to deploy i mean they anticipated global shortage of vaccines and logistical problems in vaccination rollout it's interesting timing to now that maternal pfizer vaccines are experiencing shortages and disruptions sputnik isn't so bad after all it never was but politics is politics and a vaccine isn't immune to political trash talk as sad as that is around 50 nations have already preordered sputnik jabs and europe hungry was the 1st european nation
3:06 am
to greenlight it and now the czech republic is looking to follow and its footsteps i know that sputnik is already i suspect being used in hungary and i have no objection to this vaccine being used in our country if the experts so decide he's still better than people dying here just because of a lack of vaccines so after months of denial and derision the pundits too are coming around it was easy to mock russian scientists it's harder to mock international studies hard science and that was enough of a jolt to convince even pundits to give scrutiny we shot in late january i took a test for coated 19 antibodies the results according to an interpretive scale provided by the clinic indicated that my antibody levels were probably sufficient to prevent illness the odd struck me as high but my own personal pandemic was nearing its end if you are asked. the average person before this pandemic how they
3:07 am
thought the world would react to this this huge global health crisis they would probably have said by united we now know that that would have been the wrong answer if anything the past year was a chaotic free for all rat race where everyone is for themselves and starts to see that at last good sense and reason are starting to prevail over propaganda and politics the director of the investment fund behind the russian job. who we just heard from in the previous piece also stressed the need for equitable access. we have lots of countries and let's and america in middle east and africa who will be using sports you can be back see it's very important of the only reach countries get to hold those over it seems this is really not equitable for the world i think politicians overreach countries will try to do so but there should be
3:08 am
a mechanism story of much more evil and much more equal distribution or function the rounds a world and sputnik the is committed those of us we can already delivered what seemed bolger real ready had delivered what seemed too good in the air so we had delivered what seemed to lights in america at the places that i really now there are served by as a big scene of producers already make these registered in 16 countries by the end of next week i think it will greater than 25 countries we do have some production constraints so this year we can probably supply only around 700000000 people doses so that means 101400000000 of those or so is a big scene and countries of the approach and right now we can oliseh plight as we've seen in may or june so basically we will not be the only folks in the world of course with the from taiwan those of best but countries need to have a portfolio of different but seems and the board was of excellence as well for example work disasters and to increase advocacy of their big scene and we believe
3:09 am
the spirit of partnership and works in cooperation with some board. here at penn commission chief is being buried by pressure over a shortage of private fact scenes in the new us sort of on demand their hands defended the blocks relatively slow rollout saying it would not compromise on safety but even have prayed to suss as he has his doubts. i believe it all went too slow it hasn't all been done with the maximum transparency even though that would have been a difficult task the e.u. vaccination program is widely perceived to have moved at a glacial pace we heard john claude younker there saying that he thinks it could have gone faster the person it seems that doesn't think it's moved far too slow is the current incumbent of the job of e.u. commission president on the line she says that it's being purposeful that it's moving in the right direction she certainly doesn't think that it's being slowed that any delays have been because the e.u.
3:10 am
didn't want to compromise on safety some country stary to vaccinate a little before europe it is true but they resorted to emergency 24 hour marketing authorization procedures the commission in member states agreed not to compromise with the c 50 in advocacy of requirements linked to the authorization of the vaccine well that comment is being seen as a bit of a dig at the united kingdom which proved with the urgency measures both pfizer and astra zeneca vaccines in record time the prime minister's spokes person in london has said that at no point was safety compromised in all of the corrective measures were followed. new coolness recut and new students were left unturned and come and be sure it was based on an extremely thorough evaluation of all the data from the clinical trials the european medicines agency the a.m.a. greenlit the astra zeneca vaccine for use for everyone over the age of 18 in the
3:11 am
e.u. just last friday however some member states of raised questions over it being given to those age 65 and over that's based on the data all the the lack of data for that demographic that was provided to the e m a germany was the 1st to suggest that they didn't want to give it to that age group poland have now followed and perhaps the most shocking comments have come out of france where the french president emanuel much as described the vaccine is quazi in affective against the corona virus in those age 65 and above well that those claims of being rubbished by scientists question where mr micron is getting that from and suggesting that the french president may be engaging in a bit of demand management with those type of statements. some western governments have been quick to condemn a moscow court's ruling to jail russian opposition forgot explain of on the over
3:12 am
parole violations prompting moscow to say they should mind their own business or sign off as more. well it certainly gain some traction internationally has been covered in russia for sure but the amount of attention it's getting from international sources it is almost like they are the russian media within minutes after the ruling we started to receive statements from all over the world from the u.k. from the u.s. from germany france the council of europe really you name it all of them almost following the same the very same time template all of them calling putting alexina value on a pedestal and calling for his release we reiterate i will call for the russian government to immediately and unconditionally release mr no vani as well as the hundreds of other russian citizens wrongfully detained in recent weeks for exercising their rights including the rights to freedom of expression and of
3:13 am
peaceful assembly today's verdict against gelatine a violent is a bitter blow against fundamental freedoms and the rule of law in russia alexina valley must be released immediately the u.k. calls for the immediate and unconditional release of alexina vali and all of the peaceful protesters and journalists arrested over the last 2 weeks when it comes to international support really this hearing it has been like no what no other one in russia has been unprecedented not because only because of its magnitude but also because the international community they got to witness the hearing itself right before it started we saw a motorcade of embassy cars taking foreign diplomats to the to to witness the hearing just imagine for instance a russian embassy car going to witness a julian assange hearing in london so that would that would raise quite a number of eyebrows in the west but this it was not one embassy car it was
3:14 am
a whole motorcade from all over europe. so it was. one person. here you. know. i don't like. it when it comes to the reaction from the russian foreign ministry well it was it was quite expected i should say the spokeswoman marie is a horrible as she called the essential foreign meddling in russia's internal affairs it was a new process that made it out of mission this is no longer just interference in the internal affairs of the 7 state it is the south exposure of the west in its attempts to contain russia in an unappealing and illegal way for russia its internal matters a russian citizen being world being sued under russian law in russia and for
3:15 am
the international community it's almost like a like a lever to be pulled against russia and like to be used against russia and to get some political gain on the diplomatic arena however say this is an internal issue so why is it that western nations have come out and it been so quick to condemn the verdict of our sovereign country well it was quite expected because for them. the are hailing him as the opposition leader if you are a supporter then of course you will view it as unjust yeah you will you will hear his arguments and you will disagree with the court but the court sided with the prosecution completely and here's an important detail the court didn't really give a new sentence or just reverse the previous ones the federal prison service in russia the release their own statistics showcasing their collection of ali it's not he's not getting special treatment here of course he stands out of the crowd of
3:16 am
other thousands of people who have their suspended sentences reversed because he strives to be a politician. he is an outspoken critic of the kremlin so there's also that there's always that but at the same time again thousands of people yearly if they get their suspended sentences reversed for various violations it's important to stress that we're not talking about just the period of time when he was receiving treatment and berlin and upon his return to russia up until his return to russia it goes way before that apparently he was violating his parole conditions for 4 years and the government the government they treated the kind of got away with a slap on the wrist while not this time and while the judge decided to side with the prosecution of following the vatican about and supporters took to the streets of central moscow to protest the ruling the area was quickly cordoned off by bright police deployed here red square many of the protesters were detained as the
3:17 am
demonstration had not been approved for some countries including for example the us i've already suggested imposing sanctions on russia over of arnie's case earlier we spoke to what guests who gave us their thoughts on the matter. is just the hypocrisy of the west as we know it and this is its finest how can the west give lessons but to russia when we see the way for example do you 1st the movement with credit in france 3000 political opponents during these demonstrations were condemned in france 1000 political opponents were imprisoned in iran remember is that only to be released why did he start himself by releasing french political prisoners and his political opponents not only should those countries those western countries respect the independence of the russian federation but they should also respect the independence of the russian judicial system and so this of thora t.
3:18 am
of the russian courts must be respected not only by the russian government but also by governments around the world and they cannot. off for government intervention and at the same time that russian courts have the freedom to decide and judicial matter who various governments that come out criticize the kremlin and watching the quintet more of them are acting as we could have predicted just closely from what was up to this group by clear question in the present which is everything possible to preserve the west meaning particularly the states. and to a lesser degree germany or ring leaders you know up again to move to if there were fire russia and to draw attention away. from the scene of the political developments in the west going back to the storming of the capital which was quite monstrous compared to the other thing that stuck in there washington the last few
3:19 am
weeks. well with trump's impeachment trial just around the point to some already predicting a political combat past republican support for a conviction on a story on all of this break.
3:20 am
well truth seems wrong. why don't we just don't call. me. yet to seep out just didn't come out to. it in detroit because betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. while with his impeachment trial looming donald trump's political future lies on the law in the us senate is due to stop proceedings next monday then president donald trump was impeached by congress last month the 2nd time in as many years this time he's been charged with incitement to insurrection over the storming of
3:21 am
the capital however his lawyers have denied that the former president whipped up his base some will argue that his trial is unconstitutional as he's already left office if convicted trump would be barred from holding public office ever again he will also lose the financial benefits given to former presidents as well as secret service protection but while some predict trump's career is over for good others are adamant a comeback is on the cards. well i think it's important to understand exactly why democrats are still going through with this impeachment a lot of people might see that the president trump is no longer in office and think that it's pointless but i think they're being very calculated here don't forget that if democrats successfully impeach donald trump he will be ineligible to run in 2024 and i think that's what this is all about so people might be talking about donald trump being over in politics but the democrats i think clearly do not think that and we also need to remember that a majority of republicans still think that the election results in 2020 were
3:22 am
fraudulent you know donald trump being on the ticket in elections has made a huge difference difference for republicans and we just look and see what happened in the georgia runoff when trump was not on the tickets and republicans by and large stayed home so i think if anyone is trying to count out donald trump whether they be on the right or the left that's a mistake the reason why trump is hated so much within his own party is he's hated by the part of the party that's within the washington beltway he's hated by the elites of the party because the elites of the party are terrified populism they're terrified of a populist leader because they themselves are actually not liking the fact that trump is very well liked by millions of americans terrifies them couldn't come back yes he will not be impeached the votes are not there we already know that from a procedural vote that senator paul called for last week when only 5 republicans peeled away and the republicans are starting to feel the heat from americans for turning on trump so the votes are not there are running plea as has happened throughout the last 5 years or so every con the democrats attempt to do something
3:23 am
to destroy trub and out he only makes them stronger and i think this impeachment fiasco the sham will have the same effect for trump it will actually make them stronger in the end kevin is right they're trying to push. this populism out of the republican party bloodstream and they really want to get rid of it for them and it is positive tremendous disruption because a tramp. represent something that they don't have any interest in they don't have an interest in populism or the. basic. premise principles that trump supports which is america 1st they really only put up with trump because they had to because of his past. support but i think that it's going to be quite it's going to have quite an impact in this that in fact inside of the party if he should try to run again even in 2016 week we can't forget that the republican party was not united behind donald trump in terms of the insiders donald trump with the
3:24 am
take that was purely by the people ultimately with primaries in 2024 it's not going to be up to the establishment to choose who the next candidate will be donald trump is bonds from most major social media platforms they were his main political tool to cut out the middleman the media he went straight to the people will the prevent him getting his message out in future it is quite difficult now that he's been boxed out all of the major social media platforms and really the media in general and they're the filter for the media so you know with all of these forces aligned against him it's going to be quite difficult to really emerge or reemerge i should say as a viable option is running against the entire political establishment the entire media which meant the social media that was meant to be running against basically all the powers that be and i just don't know that he has that kind of force so overcome such. what are they afraid of why are they so afraid of him he can't have
3:25 am
social media can't be on the media they're fraid of allowing him to speak they're afraid of allowing him to appeal that means there is a huge appeal that trump recreating to this day he still very dangerous was going to meet both within the democratic and the republican party he will be a force to be reckoned with in the future if you desire to be. a freshman giving out free soup but a local pocket found himself and hopeful to. after being arrested by police apparently on the grounds that he was violating cope with 90 rolls rules next myth had been serving soup to vulnerable people out of makeshift kitchen he'd set up in his local park but the sussex police force then stepped in saying he was encouraging 2 or more people to gather which breaks current coronavirus cobbs smith claims people doing charity volunteer work are exempt from a rule but the police disagree. offices in gauge with the parties involved explain the restrictions in relation to the look at them and encourage compliance with the
3:26 am
government guidelines re woolford all through a food bank of britain believes that in this case the u.k. police what opus alice there is a clear guidance in the restrictions and that means the voluntary sector those of us that involved with feeding people in a crisis are exempt from the regulations that the most of the public are have to adhere to people arriving for soup catching kitchen is acceptable as long as they get their soup and then they move on this was in an open environment a safe environment it was within the guidelines of code of aid for the voluntary sector and frontline services i work with another organization called street kitchen and street kitchen operates across 7 different districts in london on the street feeding people in crisis in exactly the same way that this man was helping his neighbors in his local community what's really happening here is that the
3:27 am
police in different areas do not seem to be aware of 'd what's happening in other areas so they're all misunderstanding the regulations. and finally some nice and brief and to start let's take a look at the targets capital where tuesday saw dramatic classes between police and students protesters were chased down the narrow streets of istanbul to cast was fired over 150 arrests made this isn't the fast rally of its kind recent weeks have seen major camp says an unhappy students voicing anger about president appointment of a new rector at a prestigious university got something usually decided in town and so many say this is undemocratic move to put in a party loyalist barred from the streets to the stars or not it seems because space x. is so. couldn't full test flight ended in a fiery crash on tuesday. when it saw it and started going down the 2nd time you
3:28 am
know mosques brainchild has failed a commentator that we've got to do on that mountain a little bit probably a bit of an understatement either way it seems was still a little way off from space x. take it to mars. let's finish off with nick the bottlenose dolphin he's not just a strong swimmer prime he's also got a nose for picking super bowl winners this year mick is putting his bat on towns a city chiefs to when the on your championship game of the n.f.l. and derby to fos to dismiss him because he's had a 6 prediction streak on choosing the windows so decide for yourself whether it's what's reaching into your pockets for a bat on sunday the kansas city chiefs will back it out with the tampa bay buccaneers. trophy so we'll see where the next on live money this year. that's all from me for today thank you so much for keeping me company have a great day and we hope to see you soon.
