1:00 am
as for the tragedy in laos what built to the people need in that little land of mind. open to all see here with the breakdown of the stories that shaped the week is the struggles to get back to ground states. back it's become the 2nd country in the block to get russia's sputnik. and to break with the e.u. it's medicine's watchdog stance a rolling review of the russian vaccine we hear from the head of the fund behind me . a few major european leaders should be very proud of the stand you but see the search would breach between russia and europe. given our friends and family new zealand says no one should be off limits when it comes to informing on rule breakers. and the end of nations being
1:01 am
bombed into democracy ministrations says no more u.s. backed regime change we have squared the old habits die hard. a good morning to you watching the weekly here on r.t. and gnashed. europe's faltering vaccination program has already seen hungry and slovakia's breaking ranks with the bloc in getting russia sputnik slava gave its own senior correspondent looks at why the vaccine program is struggling to get off the ground. so there's 3 european nations that have a green light to dispute it despite the european medicines agency taking its time really taking its time to approve sputnik so these 3 nations have already sidelined
1:02 am
the european union and of the said look the situation is incredibly desperate. czech republic hungry and now serve that which is received its 1st batch of sputnik vaccines there's going to be millions more that is going to be delivered by summer so the prime minister's obviously very happy that he's managed to secure more vaccines for the people nevertheless there's now a scandal there's a scandal because the president of slovakia has come out she paid lip service to people's lives but all directly she is she said that vaccination shouldn't be carried out at the expense of political stability of course saving lives goes beyond any political controversy but even exceptional actions can be taken in such a way so as not to destroy the ruling coalition humiliate opponents or question people's confidence in vaccinations and cause further conflict in society it is remarkable coming out in front of your people in the middle of
1:03 am
a pandemic and telling them. you know your health is important but what is even more important is the stability of the ruling coalition. you know it just goes to highlight that the deep divisions in europe and there are incredibly deep divisions in europe over the way the pandemic vaccination in the rule out of the vaccines has been handled it isn't the russian vaccine that is undermining people's faith in the european union it is their handling of this crisis in germany for example 51 percent of people asked in a recent poll whether you know the the vaccination has been handled well or badly by the european union 51 percent more than half of germans have said it's been shambles the way the us. paean union has handled it so initially the european union came out and said look let's let's all do it together so give up your power new nation needs to buy vaccines by themselves we'll handle it so we'll get you the vaccines but then of actions and what ultimately happened is they bungled it 1st
1:04 am
they were too expensive then they were too late because the united states britain snatched up all the vaccines look at the statistics only 5 percent of europeans have been able to get a single job that is compared to 30 percent in the united kingdom so europe is lagging far far behind that european nations understand that this is a catastrophe this is a catastrophe a huge number of levels of a political level of the health care level and ultimately what has happened is that all these nations have said look we're going to do this ourselves obviously the european agencies the euro kratz they have fumbled this so we'll have that ourselves you have poland running to the chinese with hands outstretched begging for that she included you have austria going out and saying that you know we're going to now cooperate with israel to develop a 2nd generation vaccines denmark as well saying that will work with israel and 2nd generations vaccine to target all the strains and ultimately the austrian
1:05 am
chancellor so this is a leader of a european nation coming out and saying they've lost hoops in europe the way that europe handles vaccine rollout. we must prepare for further mutations and should no longer be dependent soley on the e.u. in the production of 2nd generation vaccines look brussels understands that what has happened has been a catastrophe you have officials the european union coming out and say we're sort of apologizing to citizens all over europe for the way they've handled things but saying that you know it isn't is a do over yet we can still recover we'll get your vaccines there's no need to run around and make shady deals and you know buy up vaccines that were supposed to be received by other european nations you have a situation where it's a free for all now nevertheless the europeans assure that they couldn't fix things and then now saying that perhaps perhaps we'll try to speed up the whole
1:06 am
bureaucratic process that has caused all of this and get you a merge and see approval for vaccines now it could be an emergency authorization of vaccines that you level we shared liability among member states remember in the early days of the pandemic when countries all over the world nato allies the neighbors board put up supplies from each other we're talking about mosques ventilators we all we all remember the diplomatic crises that that caused this situation now is remarkably similar so so there is no united front you know what you can get your hands on you get your hands on and this is a situation that obviously isn't optimal for europe in these difficult times especially economically politically all over the world nevertheless european bureaucrats aren't giving up hope they believe that they can still fix things the
1:07 am
problem is of course that member states don't believe that they can the e.u. medicines watchdogs started a rolling review of russia's sputnik vaccine the head of the russian direct investment fund the driving force behind the drug said the vaccine could help relations between russia and europe. russia's most insisting on supplies for the scene we have huge demand is really very significant so we're working on the it was found trays the last real one through a russian vaccine that is up to you to see easy ones point nuke us part of there we've seen strategy if so what the role will play there but without complaint open and that we will work very closely was being made to provide them with all of the information and we are also looking forward to preserve visits and production facilities of wood because while we believe that the barriers of mistrust and different laws being efforts against we see will not succeed in face off
1:08 am
will really 0 but we all need to date which is the road to save lives of people and i think more and more politicians understands us that rather than trying to you know beat them off the cult who'll have been the choice of which seems it's much better to actually speak things out there to with the major european leaders actually being very pretty magic and understanding and sort of seen if actually would bridge between russia and europe and from the new political. will reduce use of several countries like hungary in slovakia already approved this would hear directly we have been approached by several other nations and it's very important that you know when luke rules this directly to them of violating your review lesions in the u.s. so you actually clarified for a time period so archaea really unfolds effect prestigious or there's or you can do in piece of emergency health situations which will obviously call it a day just so it's up to the regulator to decide on hiring. we need to make
1:09 am
sure that people have a choice of it seems and of course different agencies need to grow their save but it's very important most political choice is a people who deserve to tell a good. recall just. because you know we would be from humid no i don't think all that shit we believe has been proved to be steve's look aids and many people will choose specifically this your money to know why don't you told you because. the 1st case a krone virus was detected in a russian national one year ago on march 1st let's take a quick look at how the following 12 months of them felt that.
1:10 am
friends family neighbors nobody should be off the snooping radar when it comes to cope with rule breakers according to new zealand's prime minister but has in forming become yet another symptom of the pandemic the karen has a story. amid the many lockdowns thousands of face masks and gallons of hand sanitizer coverage is also encourage families and friends to reconnect check in more often to family quizzes but also question who we can really trust in new zealand kiwis have been encouraged to turn detective and report to any rule
1:11 am
breakers they come across whether they be your friendly local greengrocer or your dear old grandma even with a full understanding of human fallibility it is not appropriate and it is not ok a members of the team of 5000000 to meet the rest of us down and it seems it's a proven practice remember last year when the shit number of do good snitching on their neighbors was so overwhelming it crashed a police website we've had 4200 reports of people believing compline again it shows. determined. to ensure that everyone complies with us convinced the idea of turning us into a world of informers is the key to compliance leaders across the globe competed for the most creative ways to encourages all to tell allays matt opted for a cash incentive you know the old expression about snitches well in this case
1:12 am
snitches get rewards we want to thank you for turning folks in and making sure we are all safe in washington police transformed a local up for residence into an express line to rat on your neighbor with governor inslee stay home stay healthy order in effect the bellevue police have developed an easy way for residents to report violations reports logged into the my build view would generate a heat map showing where there are potentially illegal gatherings or business activity in italy such was the strength of the all seeing army they decided to make it official and created 60000 jobs for those who felt the need to daub in others and no souls were spared in germany as even politicians felt the wrath of the squeal is you'd think the public might have been appalled by those measures but the enthusiasm was so overwhelming that some police stations in the u.k. were receiving so many calls that they had to create a separate special hotline for the whole of curtain twitching do gooders now
1:13 am
there's nothing wrong with asking people to remain vigilant and helpful we all have to do our bit but what happens when covert itself cost it's lost and the pandemic finally blows over the curtain twitchers will just be left nervously twitching hoping to once again be friends and not enemies. or she turns says no more to costly foreign military interventions but with president biden strongly supporting nato's bombing of yugoslavia in the ninety's and blinken advocating to supply ukraine with weapons we ask whether the new slogan is likely to translate into a real policy shift we will incentivize democratic. but we will not promote democracy through costly military interventions or by attempting to overthrow author terry regimes by force. we've tried these tactics in the past. however well intentioned they haven't worked quite an interesting use of words but the pattern
1:14 am
from the united states of intervening in the affairs of other countries destabilizing and overthrowing governments around the world is quite well known one looks at the history of iraq of libya afghanistan one looks throughout south and central america one can see many examples of the united states intervening in other countries affairs destabilizing and overthrowing governments in fact in recent years we've heard many calls from u.s. leaders for governments around the world to be overthrown and for leaders to step down assad needs to go we will continue to work with our partners in the international community to press. the to leave the time is come for nicholas mcdermott to go what's interesting is that we actually had a tweet from anthony blinken in which he gave full support to one kwaito one great 0 is an individual in venezuela who has proclaimed himself to be the president and has been engaging in violent attempts to destabilize venezuela to overthrow the
1:15 am
elected government and there have even been u.s. military contractors that have been involved in those military coup attempts so having anthony blinken you know you know voicing support for one great oh the unelected individual who claims to be venezuela's leader kind of flies in the face of his claim that the united states won't be using force now if there was one loophole you could say in anthony blinken remarks he did create a pretext in which the united states would be continuing to use force against governments of course we will never hesitate to use force when american lives and vital interests are at stake now what exactly would constitute such a threat he did not lay out any specific criteria so it seems that though the united states through its new secretary of state is announcing that no more force will be used many wonder if this will simply be a changing of red. rick it looks like the united states will most likely be continuing its foreign policy activities but only time will tell he did leave that
1:16 am
huge loophole where he said vital interests vital interests can mean almost anything mars the moon you name it it could be a vital interest to america if a politician wants to say that's the case it seems like rhetoric you know trump certainly had his own style that was very bombastic and outhere and other presidents have been more reserved in their or in their description of activities but when you look at the actual policies we've seen no change and i think it sounds like rhetoric not something that we can count on yet you know president trying started a trade war with china and now president biden's talking about well we're going to cooperate with other countries but we're also going to have trade agreements that protect our workers and do this and that which in the end probably means the exact same policies as a national trade war biden i see him rebranding a lot of the same old thing and to the blinken has repeatedly joe biden's america
1:17 am
his bank slogan and some a skeptical about what exactly that means. live . america is back.
1:18 am
still to come social media platforms continue that crusade against donald trump takes down his 1st major post-presidential speech the details suffer the break.
1:19 am
join me every week. and i'll be speaking to us from the world of sports i'm sure i'll see you then. the indian government is reportedly threatening to jail employees of facebook twitter and what's up new delhi and the tech giants have clashed over sharing data
1:20 am
and removing information linked to mass protests by farmers who are rallying against agricultural reforms the tech companies say that they will abide by international law and the principles of an open internet and of called india's requests concerning some employees in the country are allegedly at risk of the rest of the firms don't comply with the government's requests and has been developing new guidelines for social media companies to fight unlawful or violent content and misinformation the firms will be required to remove questionable content and even track down the originators of messages. let's bring the guest stars go live to use a political commentator author and journalist based in new delhi great to have you on 1st of all the rethink by the indian government and these legal are they justified. these are not justified at all even the supreme court of india has indicated that these legislations have no good. it does no power to
1:21 am
take on these social media platforms i think the this is a continuation and i think it this is the latest among so frito far irrational the measures taken by this government in india to criminalize dissent. collectively all these amount to. naked aggression on creative freedoms of people and constitutional rights and if you look closely who are these people who made them or story of. most of the advantages thrown in by facebook other social media platforms and also messaging platforms like faith whatsapp it to the ruling party which did that. before they came to power in 2014 these platforms were zealously used by the current
1:22 am
government to pull in warts to add cracked waters and. mr modi the prime minister himself is that was proud of the fact that he had more number of followers on twitter than most other people so they tried to connect they tried to make an outreach to maximum number of people to be a source to media platforms and then what happened then what happened is that there is a push back there is an opposition that is a roof you of the governance that's happening now on the other side and which is a natural thing to happen and social media or messaging platforms are not bodies monopoly so even the opposition or those weiss's in. that of any concrete opposition party that can take on ruling be dipping in the as an electoral force
1:23 am
there are people who are a right thinking people who are out there just sitting the government through a lot of forms you know when i say a lot of forms it's not just a rabid attack on the government they're using humor they're you to using the tools they're using that are stand up comedians who are far come up. are using you tube to question and more at the government. par for the course in any democracy but the current government that ordered tarion as a tease is in secure of any kind of reasonable good to them that hurled against them any any kind of questioning cannot happen and which is why i stand up comedian land and there are a lot of people who are from the creative for attendees including actor than directors who are under attack on the social media by those people who are
1:24 am
who are there are legions to the ruling government that they are nice troll armies on people and. absurd to interrupt you i just wanted to ask you given that we see the indian government threatening to jail employees of these tech companies which are not heard of a threat like that before the show that the government is it is scared at this point to to go to that extent and is not in any way legal to be threatening to jail employees for the actions of the employers. it's they're extremely anxious and in secure that there would be a level playing field on social media because they have managed the media and because most of the media t.v. print media depend on additives and. they can be you know the this government has been notorious about unleashing and. using central agencies in or
1:25 am
including certain agencies or not or years for. harrison people or financial crime alleged and fictitious ones and saw it's understandable that corporations certain corporations that are and media houses are scared and they have become pliable which is not the kids with social media and in social media and all over the top media. you have to remember that aswell even the a.t.t. platforms are going to be. under threat and amazon prime sec security. was christian. regarding certain c.d.'s that came came out on prime amazon prime so there are lots of creative even the creative. outputs the creative output that comes
1:26 am
from these. these or to the platforms are being monitored by the government that for what reason there might be humor there might be some kind of sarcastic referred to us to the government who are willing to do all enjoys going to have to interject there i'm afraid just times got the better of us at this point but great to speak to thanks so much for giving back your views political commentator journalist and pay based in delhi. it was his 1st major comeback speech since the party of the white house but just hours after donald trump took to the stage the former u.s. president had formed foul of you tube censors platform deleting his speech on a number of news organizations sites included reuters a.b.c. and r.t. citing a lack of content warnings is probably could with more. sir donald trump was back giving his big return speech at the impact 2021 that's the conservative political
1:27 am
action conference for the uninitiated and it attracts a break through walls but. if i would show you some more of the highlights but it's not bad easy because they are i would like you to be able to watch my video on you tube which is hard to say at censoring the 45th president but nobody likes live ok let's try and get one more quick clip in content warning this video contains an orange man saying things which may not be 100 percent correct and world super duper assure you that. you see our t.v.'s streamed to times return live on and convert free to say whatever he wants in the tradition of freedom of speech only for you tube to take it down and threaten r.t. with a content strike and deletion from the platform for violating its spam deceptive
1:28 am
practices and scams policy hey you tube if you're going to delete every videos for scams and deceptive practices you know basically going to be left with one video this one. you tube responded to queries by saying more details aren't explanatory information must be provided essentially you to pate the fact that trump still uses every opportunity to claim that he didn't lose the election but what's interesting about you tube's policy is that the censors 1st port of call was r.t. r t s german channel and another russian channel called sputnik it took our. before they got to the likes of reuters and the associated press and even then i bet they weren't threatened with removal from the point hall so the folly is clear because
1:29 am
for example i can still watch the video on the independence you tube channel actually as you know the just watch the word house but it's one of those which is our environment and so watch out there while you still can but social media platforms which are always trying to get out of trouble by saying that they are publishers they just provide an outlet are openly censoring political content and deleting access to a former president who despite what any of us may say was democratically elected by millions of people. and that targeting russian channels specifically allowing people to speak freely and that's all getting all the news outlets are simply reporting the news and yet i can still watch things like this. it's political censorship that's all it is. one use and often are.
1:30 am
so there are 3 big events and more than a few. which could not be predicted because they were ridiculous. it was world war one because nobody really can see what would happen if you deploy machine guns on so i could be called a machine guns because this was always done against warrior small do you. know serious french politician would ever.
