if you can feel good in though it is a. little to rely. on those are our. headlines this hour the slovak prime minister rejects calls not to use the vaccine is the country's vaccination campaign gets bogged down by politics also u.k. measures workers around the government offers them a playwright's of just one percent and a dream holiday that turned into a nightmare he told the passenger of an italian cruise ship that suffered outbreak resulting in the deaths of 3 people. will he refused to inform us that what he says to the couple to share the day tested positive there was no suspicion but indeed. they've refused to give us information.
7:01 am
hello there good afternoon just gone 3 o'clock here in the russian capital you're watching r.t. international. the prime minister of slovakia has defended his decision to acquire russia's coronavirus faxing following a wave of criticism after the country received its 1st delivery of the job i discussed the issue earlier with our saskia taylor. over the past year we've heard time and time again that unity is needed in the fight against the coronavirus when it comes to vaccines though it seems that our unity falls apart while political shenanigans begin his purchase of russia sputnik facts in the latest of round footie countries globally to do so has made very clear because the prime minister was forced to defend his decision after critics spoke out saying they want to refund the sputnik vaccine will not go back to russia it will save lives in
7:02 am
slovakia i would never give it up our countries a fundamental part of the european union but i cannot turn down a quality vaccine that will save our people because it's made in russia i'm not a murderer so why did the scenes all the sputnik the flying out from moscow to the east of here on monday bring about such backlash well the russian vaccine has not been right to stood by the european union at the approval process is in fact just beginning but as prime minister much of it said he cannot in good conscience allow himself to stand by and wait for red tape to be cut while his citizens are dying so widespread then is this criticism is it a couple of voices or easy really facing some sort of you know substantial revote here while the purchase of those 2000000 jobs really has thrown the stock in government into disarray so 2 of the 4 parties which make up the ruling coalition have spoken out one in fact has proposed
7:03 am
a total reshuffle of the entire cabinet the other side it might not remain a part of the coalition in the meantime the foreign affairs minister very different said that sputnik the is not just a front scene but quote a tool of highbridge war so put simply politicians who are supposed to fall for laos to put the wealth of the citizens i hit bottom out in trying to send back a fax in that could save thousands of lives for. it's part moskos looking at all of this infighting said ok what even take the fight scenes back and you know what we won't even charge compensation as per the contract and this is something that the slovakian pm wrote about specifically with how it brings up an exposes the hypocrisy of his critics they have been seeing hybrid war jew political russian weapons all kinds of nonsense that we should be ashamed off when the russians came and offered to take the vaccine back with no repercussions everyone suddenly became
7:04 am
quiet why couldn't the prime minister just adopt a vaccine that had been approved by the e.u. why they decided to take this route and take sputnik fee and of course then we've seen all of the arguments than she. well it's no secret tool that the european union is failing in its task of vaccinating its 450000000 strong population its production is slow its rollout is even slow it's been such a p.r. and health disaster that brussels was even forced to publicly apologize so frustration desperation pushing sutton even member states to look beyond the block for help and they're looking to russia so hungry has registered sputnik the slovakia to now. san marino also after it's easy to approved vaccines were delayed rumors that the czech republic an all star also next in line so pretty appetite is growing as is a lack of faith in brussels as for brussels and the e.u.
7:05 am
which is obviously all about being a single cohesive union where everything is centralized all these individual member states splintering off and breaking ranks is actually quite humiliating and in a sign that it doesn't even really have faith in its own ability to handle this crisis on friday a spokesperson said that countries can independently acquire jobs approved by the block or not whether they're from russia from china or wherever else so we're clearly seeing his shift within the e.u. member states starting to lose faith and confidence splintering from the union when it comes to vaccines and this latest saga in slovakia showing as we've seen from the very beginning that not even vaccines in the middle of a global pandemic are immune from being politicized. a kick in the teeth that's what the british medical association has called the government's one percent pay rise offer for health care workers something though health unions say does undermine the value of those who quote kept the country alive during the crisis
7:06 am
well despite the n.h.s. receiving an extra $500000000.00 pounds per year under the proposed route would still long result in a result for staff as inflation in the u.k. could hit one and a half percent this year comes to spite the government's repeated promises of rewarding frontline staff. our n.h.s. is the b. team heart of this country it is important that we support our really just want to see our fantastic frontline workers paid properly we absolutely want to want to grow up want to reward n.h.s. staff for what they've done i will be making sure that we fight to house that that fair reward i mean i guess the government would have to prioritize and i think nurses and the n.h.s. in general is something that we should prioritize at this moment and i do think they should probably receive more than one percent but it's a symbolic ratio one percent i know but what's that's not going to have any impact
7:07 am
on the it just feels like a very it's like a very weak offer from the government it's not right you know there's always companies that made so much money off the back about that but those have been in the middle of it haven't done so well and it energizes critically underfunded and you know the government can afford lots of other things you look at all the contracts they've been giving to their friends meanwhile the leading british nurses union has set up a fund to prepare for possible strikes over the deal the labor party needed to care starmer is also dismissed the proposal saying coded here raised is a better support but british health secretary has defended the offer calling it affordable given the country's economic downturn we've got the opinions of a u.k. think tank and a nurse about the proposal. well not least because one can say as nor accurate as can 2nd everything that nazis have done and in each case workers in general for
7:08 am
this country joining the course of the. river it had 10 years of my state it and ask lawyers nor me not that i think you can imagine any. demoralized the tango and the same people or speed some government i thanked we had at least a small amount of all that i asked our government for is to be quite honest by to be made actually sure. we are and the appreciation for his and pandemic unfortunately that was a messed opportunity for the government i think it's fairly understandable that public servants who are doing a really difficult job or a really difficult time would feel that they ought to be rewarded more fair in the u.k. he's a wealthy nation if we devalued our resources fairly i think there'd be a lot more that you know would be ample sco for low paid workers and critical work as such the system gets
7:09 am
a. more substantial pay rise it's not hard to find examples of how better more cold but a. government administration or a fairer taxation system could find the money to give the nurses who've been literally saving lives keeping the country running through this period of a more generous offer. french authorities are investigating manslaughter allegations against israelis costa cruises half to 3 people died following a code without breaking one of their ships last year passengers of the costa magica claim they were not told about suspected infections and were encouraged by the crew to use the ship's facilities challenged as more. sequoias yes the cruise was a chance to go with my son who was 5 years old to see a magical world and discover the magic of the caribbean instead it was a nightmare i wondered how i would get out of this hell because if i didn't i was
7:10 am
going to die stephanie dubois was one of thousands of holiday makers aboard the cost a magical last year when the covert pandemic hit for her and her then 5 year old son it was supposed to be a dream voyage instead passengers found themselves trapped on board with little information or what was happening as the virus spread through the ship is over who's in the refused to inform us that there were cases of covert aboard the ship that they had tested positive there was no suspicion but indeed there were ill people they refused to give us information and we got it from the media when we were near the coast and could get a signal they concealed it from us and they didn't let us protect ourselves they didn't protect us either health wise they didn't treat us very well and not at all humanely but also they avoided putting in place barrier measures which could have protected us and didn't ask koester what measures they were putting in place to
7:11 am
ensure that your health was the priority or the tension increased very quickly we were in a state of tension and anguish which i just can't describe finally after huge days this virus spread strongly we asked them to cut the air conditioning and they refused we demanded that they open all the restaurants and all those outside so that people could escape the crews as soon as possible to avoid gatherings they refused to put in place these measures the cruise ship was refused permission for passengers to disembark at several ports including only island of moxon eek now these images show this situation of. the island's authority told passengers that they had to stay confined to their cabins tensions were high and violence erupted. i was was i.
7:12 am
was i was a year later and french investigators approving allegations including mom saw to aggravated to see it and in danger in the lives of others against italy's costa cruises over her mental could be going team cases aboard that ship 3 passengers from the virus the company denies the accusations saying that it and the crew acted on the scant information that was available about the forests the toyman considering that at that time the situation was evolving rapidly and the ship's medical team acted on the basis of the vailable scientific information and full compliance with the instructions of the health authorities and in constant coordination with them but the lawyer who represents almost knowing 100 passengers
7:13 am
in the complaint filed in france told r.t. that that's not the case and yet there was no more hand sanitizer it was replaced by water very clearly or it was either totally empty or didn't exist no security or health measures there were 3 restaurants on board the shuttle 2 there was only one open and there were 2300 passengers who came for lunch breakfast and dinner one after the other without health measures and he claims that the company was fully aware before setting sail that there were troubled waters ahead even loyal to holiday makers he said that they had questioned whether there would be a tally in passengers on board as at that time italy had become the latest hub for the virus costing he says. sure at them they would be no telly and so bought he sent me through that they knew a week in advance that the crews could not last so yes it's true it was a strange health situation near the start or just
7:14 am
a little in advance of the pandemic hence the concern of the french passengers to know if there were any italian passengers at this time it was a european country hit hard by covert and they wrote we have the emails and letters from costa which say no there will be no it's all in passengers yes they lied and they should have cancelled this cruise because they knew what could happen the passengers who have brought these complaints now have to wait to see if it will be taken for stephanie it's already been a long and tough journey but she's determined that costa cruises should be held responsible so it's all legal but still ahead here this hour another round of kobita restrictions are set to be lifted here in the russian capital how does the company wage show you says the situation across the country of russia is steadily improving one half of the telephone miss just off a quick break. join
7:15 am
me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to us of the world of politics or business i'm show business i'll see you then. the world is driven by a dream shaped by one person. in the day or thinks. we dare to ask.
7:16 am
why the 21st century america is exhausted it's just tired and it doesn't have a thing approach that mark but china after being on the margins for so long does have something to prove and they do have the capacity and they are putting shoulder to the wheel and they are working. again now u.s. capitol police have requested more than 2000 national guard troops to remain in washington d.c. for another 2 months but with tensions remaining high after the january riots even just room is due for a new financing to put the media and police on edge of the market expects. it is no exaggeration to say that there was serious panic in the lead up to march 4th a new threat against the u.s. capitol a possible militia plot to storm the capitol as early as tomorrow we are watching
7:17 am
this threat stream the information social media other sources with respect to this particular day march 4th federal law enforcement is on full alert after warnings from intelligence officials that another attack on the u.s. capitol could be a minute preparations were serious hundreds of national guard patrolling the area capitol police released a statement on wednesday warning possible plot to breach the capitol by an unidentified militia group a local businesses have warned tenants about possible protests you might have gotten the impression watching meteor reports that u.s. officials were bracing for the purge as citizens rushed to get home before commencement. we advise you to get off the streets as quickly as possible it will soon be a war there. so what happened when the fateful day finally arrived nothing what does it take to put the u.s. government on edge apparently just some lame internet rumors it all started with q. and a on conspiracy theorists on the internet they said that the inauguration of joe biden
7:18 am
was a big false flag and that the pentagon was planning to install donald trump on march 4th the original inauguration date in u.s. history well obviously that did not happen now the main conspiracy theory of cuban on is the idea that a group of satanic blood drinking pedophiles have seized control of the u.s. government and media apparatus and that donald trump and his allies are waging a heroic covert war against them behind the scenes some of blame donald trump for not denouncing the militia groups and cuban on conspiracy theorists who rally behind him you know the president has a responsibility to tell him to stay down this road. is credible it's real human on conspiracy theories and delusions aside joe biden won the election he has been inaugurated so why is the country still on edge and blaming the former president
7:19 am
there were no violent actions or big protests on march 4th but law enforcement was on high alert the whole thing was taken very very seriously the department continues to work with all of them. and is based on the intelligence that we have the department has taken immediate steps to enhance our security posture and stuffing for a number of days to include much the fools the u.s. house of representatives even canceled their meeting later nancy pelosi insisted that the meeting was not cancelled just moved to an earlier time if in fact there's any trouble makers around and it makes sense. i don't think anybody should take any encouragement that because some troublemakers might show up and that we change the whole schedule now we just moved in a few hours there's now a call to extend the national guard presence around the u.s. capitol just in case internet liberals have decided that a secret nazi conspiracy has taken over the republican party their proof the shape
7:20 am
of the stage at sea-tac apocalyptic scenarios are now starting to become a regular aspect of american political discourse i actually have a lot of conservative friends and a lot of populous conservative friends and a lot of trump supporters. and none of the had talked about this until the mainstream media brought it up rumors only cause panic if the rumors are given air by the right you know media i just think it's a justification to not put this in ministries in the position where they have to actually face the failures that they've had through almost only a month and a half of being in office people were talking about a $2000.00 check that's what they would. no i want to know where their checks that i want to hear about that where the money or where the health care you know what's going on in our economy right now you know those are the things we don't see anyone
7:21 am
once again holding biden accountable in the same way that we expected to be out accountable i promise you nobody going to the capitol to the day the mainstream media's been claiming this blood drinking satanic pedophiles secret cryptic nazi symbols false flag inaugurations all of this would make a great hollywood movie or netflix mini series but in the real world america seems to have some pretty big problems like crumbling infrastructure unpopular wars and cultural polarization however our political discourse seems to be stuck in fantasyland caleb mop and artsy new york. the world health organization has said that the pandemic in russia is improving and following a steady decrease to in casey's in the capital the mayor of moscow has now announced a further reasoning for sure actions in the city with mo his cost of the. the latest from the russian capsule is that this city is lifting one of its final cold
7:22 am
with 19 restrictions starting on monday the mandatory stay at home rule for those over 65 years old and people with chronic illnesses will be scratched now the city's mayor said that the latest easily descriptions is attributed to the fact that they call the 1000 statistics in russia have drastically improved now just in moscow alone the number of those people infected as wendell's 5 times compared to the figures back at the end of the year. 20 however despite the ease of restrictions moscow authorities are warning people in risk groups to be vigilant and to stay at home as much as possible because you are immutable as you know the daily number of people hospitalized with severe cases varies between 70800 a day and of course this shows that risks still exist we must understand that the
7:23 am
elderly and those with chronic diseases of particularly concerned about these risks that's why while relaunching concessionary tickets we still recommend that people refrain from traveling where possible but no these groups come travel they should do to a vaccination center to get a job and feel safe in moscow has almost for its earned business as usual back in february when the moscow marrieds a creed that food and entertainment industry can get back to business students may go back to school and of course employees may return to their workplaces however despite the fact that so many limitations have been lifted people are still required to keep social distance and of course masks and other protective gear is mandatory elsewhere in russia frictions are also in place with seniors required to stay at home russian vaccination efforts have also been in full swing. since december of last year and reports suggest that at least 5000000 people have already
7:24 am
been inoculated now considering russian population of 150000000 people 5000000 is not such a high number however those numbers are continuing to accelerate and authorities are hoping that it will grow very soon and by the way hoarding to authorities 45 percent of the population who are over 60 years old have already received the job russian government holds that if the nations go according to plan then by august of this point it's once one people will receive collective immunity and the restrictions will be eased a lower the country. $930000000.00 tons that's the amount of food wasted by households and the service industry globally each year according to research by the u.n. environment program well according to the report 17 percent of all food produced is
7:25 am
thrown away and the waste is responsible for about 10 percent of the world's greenhouse gas emissions while more than $570000000.00 tons of food waste actually comes from households alone businesses governments and citizens around the world have to do their part to reduce food waste that are small shop carefully to creatively and make waste in food anywhere socially unacceptable economist and author richard wolfe believes that the food industry is partly to blame. you can produce food as a national social community the objectives on you could make it something like. running a public park or providing public education or providing public health care in other words it is a human right it is a basic requirement of civilized society and so it gets the priority that properly
7:26 am
goes with that we don't do that in the united states and in many other countries either instead what we have in the united states and in other countries is a profit driven food system if we did it differently if the priority was take the food we can print dooms to feed the people who are in our community we would have taken steps law would know to make sure that the food is properly produced properly packaged properly process and properly consumed that whole it's not difficult to teach people out and do it to provide them with the equipment and they would pay for itself very quickly in a better fed healthier population. finally decide the fashion brand being who is still
7:27 am
a supporter of the black life matter movement does appear to be not so i won't when it comes to his own employees human rights groups have accused the company of paying staff to lay the minimum wage on poor working conditions during the pandemic and despite promising to clean up its act the british retailer could be banned in the united states. the evidence so. slight it was quite compelling i think it will be a wake up call for british institutions about how they're handling more than slavery and forced labor. to.
