is the u.s. making amends for the tragedy in laos was built to the people need in that little land of my. slovak prime minister rejects calls not to use russia the vaccine is the country's vaccination campaign down by politics or so to come this hour in arts the u.k. medical workers are outraged after the government offers them a rice appears to send. a dream holiday that turned into a nightmare we hear from a passenger who was trapped in the alley increase during a raid which resulted in the deaths of 3 people. they refused to inform us that there were cases of code that appealed the ship to get tested positive there was no suspicion but indeed but ill people they've refused to give us information.
8:01 am
below those just gone 4 o'clock in the russian capital you're watching international now the prime minister of slovakia has defended his decision to acquire russia's sputniks the coronavirus vaccine move which prompted a wave of criticism after the country received its 1st a livery of the jab earlier i discussed the issue with. 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 and while political shenanigans begin his purchase of russia sputnik feedstocks 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 slovakia i would never give it up our countries
8:02 am
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 in 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 a total reshuffle of the entire cabinet the other side it might not remain
8:03 am
a part of the coalition in the meantime the foreign affairs minister very different . sputnik the is not just a frank scene but quote a tool of highbridge war so put simply politicians who are supposed to fall for laos to put the welfare of their citizens i hit bottom out and 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 often 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 quiet why couldn't the prime minister just adopt
8:04 am
a vice scene that had been approved then by the uighurs he decided to take this route and take sputnik fee and of course then we've seen all the arguments than she . well it's no secret tool that the european union is failing in its toss 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 its easy to approved vaccines were delayed there are 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 food brussels and the e.u. which is obviously all about being
8:05 am
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. now a kick in the teeth that's what the british medical association has called the government's one percent pay rise for health care workers something you need is that you says undermines the value of those who quote kept the country life during the crisis or despite the u.k.'s national health service receiving an extra
8:06 am
$500000000.00 pounds a year under the proposal it would still likely result in a real to pay for staff is inflation in the u.k. could still hit one and a half percent this year it does come despite 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 you know but what's that's not going to have any
8:07 am
impact 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 a party leader secure starmer has also dismissed the proposal saying that covert heroes deserve better support but the british health secretary has defended the author calling it affordable given the country's economic downturn we got the opinions of the u.k. think tank and a nurse about the proposal. i'm not pleased because one can say as nor accurate as consider nothing that nazis have done and in each case workers in general for this country joining the course of the pandemic we've already had 10 years of my state
8:08 am
it and ask lawyers nor me i think you can imagine any. demoralized the tango and the same people or speed some government as thanks we had at least a small amount of all that i asked our government in clout for is to be quite honest by to be made actually sure. we are and the other employees and pandemics 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. is a wealthy variation 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 a. more substantial pay rise it's not hard to find examples of how better more
8:09 am
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 into these costa cruises after 3 people died following a covert outbreak on one of their ships last year passengers of the costa magica claim that they were not told about suspected infections and were actually encouraged by the crew to use the ship's facilities r.t. charlotte spoke to one of the passengers. 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 going to die stephanie dubois was one of thousands of holiday makers aboard the
8:10 am
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. they 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 was 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
8:11 am
ensure that your health was the priority. 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 mazzini now these images show this situation all off. the island's authority told passengers that they had to stay confined to their cabins tensions were high and violence erupted. i was was was. i was.
8:12 am
i was a year later and french investigators are proving allegations including mom saw to aggravated to seat 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 don't read from the virus the company denies the accusations saying that it and the crew acted on the scam to information that was available about the forests the toyman considering that at that time the situation was a valving 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 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
8:13 am
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. short them they would be no telly and so bought he said . 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 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
8:14 am
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 italian 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 able to ski all legal. meanwhile another round of comb through strict sions are set to be lifted in the russian capital. says the situation across the country is steadily improving we'll have the details on this plus other stories tell you just after the break.

8:16 am
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 rumors of renewed violence seem to put the media and police on edge explains. 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 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
8:17 am
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 me to your 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 was a big false flag and that the pentagon was planning to install donald trump on march
8:18 am
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 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
8:19 am
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 fool 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 of the stage at sea-tac apocalyptic scenarios are now starting to become
8:20 am
a regular aspect of american political discourse and i actually have a lot of conservative friends and a lot of populists 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 from being in office people were talking about a $2000.00 check that's what they would. i don't 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 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 evening the day the mainstream media's been claiming this blood drinking satanic pedophiles secret
8:21 am
cryptic nazi symbols false flag inaugurations all of this would make a great hollywood movie or a 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 kaleb mopp and artsy new york. the world health organization has said that the pandemic in russia is improving i'm following a steady increase in cases in the capital to the mayor of moscow has now announced the for the reason for st john's in the city with more on that his cost of. the latest from the russian capsule is that this city is lifting one of its final cold 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
8:22 am
city's mayor said that the latest easily descriptions is attributed to the fact that they call the 1000 states estates 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. 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 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
8:23 am
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 office 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 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
8:24 am
are hoping that it will grow very soon and by the way cording to authorities 45 percent of the population who are over 60 years old have already received the job russian government hopes that if the nations go according to plan then by august of this once it's once one people will receive collective immunity and the restrictions will be eased a low over the country. now it is hard to imagine but households and businesses around the world throwing out $28.00 tons of food every single 2nd that's according to research by the u.n. environment program or the report says nearly a 5th of all food produced is thrown away and the waste is responsible for a significant amount of the world's greenhouse gas emissions our households are responsible for more than half of the food that is wasted businesses governments
8:25 am
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 while economist and author richard wolfe does believe that the food industry is partly to blame. you can produce food as a national so show all community objectives on you could make it something like. running up public parks or providing public education or providing public health care in other words it is a human right and it is a basic requirement of civilized society and so it gets the priority that properly 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
8:26 am
a profit driven food system if we did it differently if the priority was take the food we can print bills to feed the people who are in our community we would have taken steps law would know to make sure that the fool 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 to pay him a staunch supporter of the black life martha movement pays to be not so i won't when it comes to his $7.00 employees human rights groups have accused the company of paying stuff below the minimum wage and also of poor working conditions during the pandemic and despite promising to clean up its act the british retailer could
8:27 am
not 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.
