a company to child refugees at military facilities so they are trumpet ministration of being blasted for planning. a special report for you to we travel to one of the world's 1st places to scrap tough covert curbs to announce it's officially free of restrictions it's russia's republic of chechnya. hello there thanks checking in with us today this 25th of march when i was kevin owen here for the next half hour with our latest for you as described in the top story in more detail the dispute between the e.u. and britain over the astra zeneca job delays is heating up today brussels is set to vote on toughening vaccine exports thursday widely seen as a move against the u.k. as u.k. pm boris johnson is already firing warning shots over it. why do you think that
5:02 am
blockades of. either vaccines or. medicines of regions were. sensible big meeting in brussels on thursday the leaders of the 27 member states will have to decide whether or not they're going to give their blessing to a plan put forward from the european commission that would see or could see limits placed on the export of vaccines manufactured in the e.u. to nations that have their own vaccine production now in a lesser extent this is aimed at the united states but the main focus of this would fall on the united kingdom the reason it's been put into play is because well the glacially slow a you vaccination program desperately needs to get on track it's clear. we also need to ensure it works a nation of pollution and. indeed we are in a sense
5:03 am
a behind as a skit if you look at the sametime despiser folks at. once a global hotspots fundament. these are same time all saw the largest exporter of luck since the european commission said just under 11000000 vaccine doses had been exported from the e.u. to the united kingdom with 0 heading in the other direction what this mechanism would mean is that vaccines that had been set to go to the united kingdom while their exports could be blocked as long as companies will fail to live up to contracts that they signed with brussels there were many warning us that this was coming down the track we have the possibility to ban planned exports this is a message to astra zeneca you fulfill your part of the deal towards europe before you start to deliver to other countries the focus of a lot of the seems to be astra zeneca the vaccine manuf. commission president
5:04 am
ursula fund the lion said that astra zeneca it only delivered on 30 percent of the $19000000.00 or so doses they promised in the 1st quarter of 2021 plenty to keep an eye on on thursday coming out of brussels but also looking at the reaction to what's said in the european union from across the english channel in the united kingdom. in certainly it's not brussels only a very public dispute at the moment there's a spat with china over human rights and could leave a huge investment deal dead on arrival we'll tell you more about that in a few minutes. apparently a never too young to be progressive in a widely ridiculed article in the washington post experts guided parents than to the books websites and companies offering woke material for children the teacher title social justice for toddlers talks about the importance of equality racial and
5:05 am
gender education for kids the article highlights materials like a drag queen website also books like anti racist baby and woke baby in a firm selling toys and learning materials to dismantle by is very good however many of found the advice divisive even harmful to can we just teach children to walk talk or play before we start hoisting our deal to neurosis on them indoctrination is wrong washington post this conversation is one that divides us universal identity is what should be centered not race not gender this generation of kids is going to need decades of therapy after going through this critical race theory one half of them will just crumble under the white guilt pushed into them and turned into fragile ghosts barely resembling human beings the other half will just get radicalized well who got reaction to the washington post piece from talk radio host john bolton also women bennett of unite against fascism. can i just
5:06 am
check the calendar he said a prove the 1st this is a complete and utter joke listen when kids are 3 or 4 they want to play with each other and they should be encouraged and we as modern parents or grandparents should not be reinforcing prejudice prejudices if we have them on to the children of course it's important to show kids by example that you're not racist or homophobic or sexist i would agree with all of that but producing pox for 3 year olds talking about arm awoke baby it's just absolute nonsense the whole of america has laughed at the washington post 3 year olds don't buy books john parents buy books because what we're trying to do is to try and develop human beings to respect each other it's not automatic and what with the work the washington post are trying to do is have a discussion about how we develop people and that included parents so parents can
5:07 am
be parenting they don't fear alone they label it start to try and bring up a better generation in the previous generation that we have to do something. instead of being like evil out that happens as moses tried to instill and key races where equality treatment or nonsexist behavior whatever it's not society is going to be very very difficult job we have to start somewhere you don't started 3 years old with a drag queen or whatever they used new term is reading them bedtime stories at 3 years old the washington post have been ridiculed this is the wont sector the one sector trying to push their agenda on to 3 year olds well i'm sorry it's not needed it's not necessary if you conference racism if if you come across and sexism and if there's a problem in schools let's address that but please for goodness sake let. cutler's
5:08 am
be totally actually trying to teach our children to believe in the quality of only age it's never too early at normalized this is our human beings behave and actually we can probably have a better generation doesn't carry the previous sins of the previous other generation since the 16th so this whole idea that i should feel guilty for the sins of the previous generations well no i'm not going to pass that guilt on to the next generation i'm sorry i disagree completely. just 2 months is taken office president biden is already trapped in a devastating migrant crisis made a record increase in refugees the pentagon now set to hose unaccompanied migrant children in military facilities something biden's predecessor donald trump had been condemned for planning a course caleb maupin report. the biggest migrant surge at the us mexico border in 20 years thousands of unaccompanied children detained and
5:09 am
a lack of facilities to accommodate them so now the biden ministration seems to have found a solution asking the pentagon to hold them at military bases sounds reasonable but let's remember the reaction when donald trump had the same idea the united states is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly why they are there concentration camps don't let this go unnoticed the trumpet ministration reportedly plans to use a formative conies internment camp to house immigrant children this is downright immoral it was announced donald trump will be reopening one of these camps to detain migrant children these children belong in homes schools and parks not prison camps now you'll remember biden embrace these criticisms and promised a full reversal with the overwhelming support of the democratic party joe biden
5:10 am
promised more humane border policies they got separated from their parents and it makes us a laughingstock and a violates every notion of who we are as a nation and those kids are alone no where to go no where to go it's criminal. trust the abiding ministrations policy to be based on humanitarian and love of children rather than political points or red meat should they bake for their republican base but now donald trump is gone and children are being held at the same cramped facilities however the white house is now assuring us this is not kids in cages this is children in sooty this is not kids being kept in cages but this is a safe for kids this is a facility that was opened the media is very strong like. to say. ported by the administration was extraordinarily hostile to trump biden thought he had more leverage he had more control he could think he could keep things under wraps and
5:11 am
the american people would go along with go along with it and it worked for a while but now it's no longer holding up biden seems to be very naive he seems not to have thought these questions out very very thoroughly he seems to have little idea of what's at stake and he believes the same or policies will work. the same policies that he implemented when he was part of the obama administration but those policies failed then they failed under trump and they're failing now on tour by so pretty much the same policies are in place at the border as it faces a situation that many call a crisis but remember all the moral antics in the shrill town about well that was yesterday's news ilam up an ark see new york. mad hyena and a 3rd the shocking insults in deleted tweets by china's embassy to paris against
5:12 am
a french scholar of escalated from a war of words into action beijing's hitting back at the e.u. 1st sanctions in 3 decades by blacklisting european officials and that's gone down badly in turn it's about outrage in brussels with calls to drop a vast investment deal our senior correspondent asked them if they will follow through on the threat for decades now out childish trade mark its signature diplomacy was restraint patients never rash never hasty never impulsive always slow methodical but europe must have crossed a lot because immediately after it announced its 1st new sanctions against china than 30 years china struck back. it must be pointed out that these countries who proclaim themselves to be human rights judges are keen to lecture others have an ignoble record on human rights they have absolutely no right to criticize china my
5:13 am
choice to shift blames to china for what they have committed the dragon has finally shown its teeth it blacklisted a slew of members of the european parliament a subcommittee on human rights denied them entry to china and permission to do business in china to any entity as soon as he did with these people tough stuff but has big gene gone too far china's sanctions against european peace scientists and political institutions as well as non-governmental organizations represent an inappropriate escalation that unnecessarily strains ties between the e.u. and china chinese ambassadors were also summit in italy in france embassies were flooded with concerns and protests europe appeared to be united in outrage for union soon liberal sanctioning others europe really doesn't like to be on the receiving end china has retaliated to those sanctions and
5:14 am
rather than changes policies and address our legitimate concerns china is against a blind eye and these measures are there to will the next unacceptable. it since i think about the towel parliament would even entertain their idea fred to find the e.u. china investment agreement while its members and one of his kmita on dissensions efficient statement of the chinese side explained what are these that push china to do this that todd they say of the hypocrisy the double standards that europe applies to itself and its friends and different standards to everyone else has an example within days of europe excluding an outrage over china daring to sanction m e p's you crave did the same thing sanction members of parliament for visiting crimea silence nothing neither germany nor france will easily summon the
5:15 am
ukrainian ambassador no condemnation which is kind of china's point the chinese side urges the use site to reflect on itself free squarely the severity of its mistake and redress it it must stop lecturing others and human rights and interfering in their internal affairs see there's a reason why europe has pushed for a trade deal with china for the better half of a decade at because chinese companies are making a whole lot more money in europe than vice versa. the market is substantially more open to chinese companies and investment than china's market is for a u. companies and this agreement helps actually to address this imbalance so what better way to get back to china than to suspend a trade deal that would benefit primarily european companies and businesses these ladies and gentlemen is a textbook need jerk reaction and it speaks volumes about the claws and competence
5:16 am
of europe's current foreign policy team. stick around coming up italian entrepreneurs put on these conover to protest the government's failure to help them as they see it in the pandemic how can the show go on they told to us to read just a few minutes from the. banks kaiser financial. they say money to develop. this is a central bank support dying a problem is a good problem right now so you start to. thank
5:17 am
you so those pictures before the break a flash mob of a tully and entrepreneurs as dawn carnival master warned their go in and out of business without government backing in the pandemic demonstrations were arranged by
5:18 am
a group representing 50 trade associations and some 10000 its president warns the governments know practically working against them. get out that get greatly at a protest and with a mask because it's what we've been wearing for more than a year the mask also symbolizes our fear of no longer living under the rule of law we no longer feel secure in the country in which the constitution safeguards the right of the unemployed to work and this government is doing everything to take jobs away from those who already have them well the government set aside 32000000000 euro in a new corporate stimulus package that includes funds for subsidies and grants to businesses hit by the law but all that said employers say it's nowhere near enough . for a year and a month we have been living in this situation which has become unbearable our companies cannot make it anymore our savings have run out we feel desperate because of a failure to get things restarted all the attempts to go back to normal suffered setbacks
5:19 am
and we were just wasting our money the pandemic has been mishandled we are here to raise the awareness of our politicians and the this crisis has been going on for far too long and when you can create a plan of action and clear information we can't open and close on short notice we cannot keep our businesses shut down anymore. worried if there are companies that are over it is reached their breaking point one of our colleagues even committed suicide it's very unsettling that. what we're talking about covert is inflicted difficult times all of us around the world isn't it it's also been uncharted territory every country countries quickly had to try to work out our best to deal with this massive new health on the horizon some of them better than others apparently so now as mankind tries to work out what lessons can be learned and how to move forward we got a special report from chechnya often criticized abroad for its humanitarian record and strict regime question is as it found the way through the pandemic that could
5:20 am
be a template well our correspondent went there to say 1st hand we'll let you decide. yeah to try to cheer me up a bit personally i condemn these methods but it seems they've proven to be quite effective. they took me to the police station a couple of times what for for being outside but seriously let's start over. when you think of chechnya your mind will kind of some negative associations chechnya was one of the most frightening places and islamic extremism in chechnya to the horror of it i've never witnessed the authoritarian leader of the russian republic of chechnya. has a bad reputation in the west violations a crackdown on the eligibility community the like of democracy the list goes on and yet at the same time during the pandemic people here are suprising as it might
5:21 am
sound are in many ways freer than people in moscow and new york london paris you name it. highland church now and that means i can legally without breaking any rules or regulations get rid of this you see chechnya has become one of the 1st regions in russia to lift mandatory mask wearing make and effectively one of the few places in the world without coronavirus restrictions because as local authority claim they've conquered the virus how common is formidable change now i know it's a democratic iraq that's enjoying the freedom of worship freedom of movement and that pretty basic right to live your life as you used to was it a chechen medical miracle or extremely oppressive measures taken by the local government. and draws in this largest place of gathering the central mosque a new social distancing is required and masks are nowhere to be seen.
5:22 am
more. 10. 17. and it's ok to suppose which is no the number of new infections is going down with a lot of people good sense and it's all recovered from cozy so what you're seeing now is to come possible because we fold older ships so thanks to all the smoke we can stand together and pray with us. in bras neither regions cavity you can walk into any cafe and travel back in time to the pre-code era it is still weird that i have to wear a mask staff they don't wear masks at all so i think it looks strange after a year of that and that makes people around us seem to enjoy this newfound sense of
5:23 am
freedom there is this one question we ask them that many appear reluctant to answer but i heard that they had a very tough like down here in chechnya. well yes you said in that you couldn't leave your house that it was very strict so. yes but our child there were sick and so i didn't get to know anyway the money is here all right now yes he's fine the girl was clearly i'm comfortable talking about the lockdown later the same day i had another intriguing conversation with locals that followed showed us how do you feel about the quarantine and the lock down and said truck it is i know it took me to the police station a couple of times what for for being outside. without wearing a mask and that we weren't allowed to go outside at all but seriously let's start over there is something about the chechen lockdown that makes people here very cautious about talking there were reports of force used against those who didn't
5:24 am
comply with the anti coronavirus rules legibly several people were even beaten for show. up in public without a mask. i mean yeah in chechnya they used the special methods to combat the spread of coronavirus right in and kind of i mean to something like yeah you know the part of the north caucasus in general has seen anything like it seems to me now that the war in shali which is a smaller town in chechnya and it came into the spotlight after this video came out . around a dozen of people in police uniform patrolling the area holding white plastic pipes allegedly there was war local law enforcement and the pipes were meant as an intimidating tool for those who do not comply with quarantine at the local administration which is located inside this stunning skyscraper built in the town of 10000 people we were told that the video is just another fake before the debate over the internet what are going to our law enforcement offices always work was in
5:25 am
the lives of the law. in a civil and. we couldn't find anyone who would confirm that people were beaten in chechnya or for not complying with the quarantine many locals who heard the rumor and literally everyone we met said they strictly followed all the rules introduced by the local government as deputy minister of health and medicine at a children's hospital that was turned into a center for example which they should because i was vaccinated they even allowed me into the red zone in. the hallways were quiet and spotless most of the units were empty and medical staff looked fresh and full of energy and the facility didn't look like it had a particularly hard time during depend demick the region bragg's one of the lowest numbers of registered cases of daily new infections of covert related deaths i mean it really looks impressive which may janja it or if it's arm got this nearly no i don't trust the official numbers are hard to not only those provided by chechen
5:26 am
officials but these fishel data from the north caucasus region in your mouth we've seen a lot of the. if it is assuring that the numbers are under reported time years so imagine my surprise when not just an opposition journalist but also one of chechnya its top health officials told me to do not take this official datta at face value. he says to me he does know the 50 percent of our population have probably already had to wait so you're saying that over 50 percent have to already had it but according to the officials and i specifically checked that the number of registered cases is 13000 make it clear. is the number of patients confirmed and many people did not show any symptoms. well that was quite a journey of people in chance now their clients and their hospitable and they're always willing to help on the one hand but on the other they are cautious and they seem to always keep something for themselves especially when they talk with an
5:27 am
outsider they always mindful of what they're saying to you i guess this is part of the cultural code chechen society which went through 2 bloody wars is a tough it is closed and close knit at the same time. and their experience of getting through this pandemic might be different from what people have in europe the united states the rest of russia by it's hard to tell that it didn't work out at the end of the day so this is it worthwhile now back to moscow and what that means well for one and that means that i have to put my mask back on. report from chechnya but life picking up again a bit in one part of russia or it seems. the very front line of all this all around the world those medical workers and doctors working so hard for so long to help
5:28 am
a soul and in our tribute to the. people we're talking about. with the head doctor at moscow's main code hospital tells us the stories of nurses working shoulder to shoulder with doctors to save lives wearing the full version of that locally where you are. if i really can't recognize them by their face it was not i recognize them by their eyes. it was personal protection equipment has drastically changed perceptions if you recognize a person either by a large budget on their chest or which happens more often than by their eyes but that's how you recognize them later in the green zone. the red zone the corner teens are and you have to wear p.p. there which is uncomfortable because it never fits properly. when they 1st brought the patients in they were scared of us it took us some time
5:29 am
to realize that there was this young girl they brought her here from the airport she was crying all the time so i said on the bed beside her and asked are you scared of us she said yes so i said to her we're just like you were human and we're scared to. last summer was a real just unreal when your arm streams of sweat poured down the sleeves it was really hot and their. life. and. my life has been split into before and after the strange as it sounds. sometimes you see a person and realize that they're an ideal nurse something i could never be. it's practically my 2nd family frankly speaking.
5:30 am
i'm really proud of our nurses. doctors and i'm proud of our sisters. and their. end of each clinical conference by thanking them for working their shifts. country day i want to thank you for your hook your efforts you are the best. yeah you are the best we salute you big respect your main time for the rest of us not i'm to deal with that keep plodding on i better times will come soon thanks for watching this program we are are to international kevin 0 in signing off and have a great day.
