a particularly disturbing 20 fold surge in new infections since last month in india meanwhile in europe a daily new cases have stabilized somewhat after a 3rd wave of infections and u.s. pharmaceuticals giant pfizer has hiked eve prices on future alders of its anti coronavirus taxied potentially sending the cost of more than 60 percent higher to some $23.00 a dose it comes as brussels seeks a new short supply contract with pfizer for next year artie's it sounds tailor has the details you wouldn't think that big pharma and ethics go hand in hand but you clearly have and that is that if we were to implement free open market principles in pricing the products we could go to huge prices and so everything we can manufacture but it would be a little cooler think we will want to do it's because that's really taking advantage of a situation and people will not forget if you do start it must've been hard when
4:03 am
the 3rd wave started coughing through europe more curfews and lock downs were announced hospitals were overrun and pfizer couldn't take advantage even though it's sitting on the thing they say is the only way out of vaccine but no that would be unethical the people will never forget turns out though pfizer doesn't really care about people it cares about fresh dollar bills so it hiked its prices after all vaccines are very expensive this if you lived below a column is to reopen but we saw them at the price of a meal a very nice meal in a very nice restaurant after all fisons vaccine is the most expensive on the market and it can't start handing out discounts just because it's a once in a lifetime global pandemic some countries that who can't afford pfizer's prices still want the citizens to live for well that's fine we'll just produce the ass. selves well no because pfizer and co are not only lobbying the biden and mr asian
4:04 am
to stop and low cost vaccine production to help out low income countries they even want those countries to be sanctioned ethics but even for those who do have the cash purchasing pfizer is beginning to break the bank pfizer was 12 years then it became 15 new contracts are now being signed at a price of $19.00 points 50 euro and with the e.u. signing off on a future order of 900000000 doses those extra euros really add up but as pfizer well knows the bloc doesn't really have a choice because brussels 1st pick astra zeneca has become vaccine non-grata after it's linked to red blood clots at this point it would probably struggle to hand out its vaccine for free let alone charge for it johnson and johnson's hit the pause button over the same concern and the european medicine agency is not keen on approving any of the shots at the moment so the pfizer job stands as the sole
4:05 am
savior all 12 no 1519 and a half years of it that's if you don't count those 3 surprise a likely scenario is that there will be likely a need for somewhere between 6 and 12 months and then from the there will be an annual leave oxidation but all of that needs to be confirmed a vaccine with reduces in the 1st year and a booster annually after that what a tidy little way to keep those billions coming in to hell with the corporation to hell with morality to hell with humanity you really have to hand it to pfizer even in a pandemic it's just another day another dollar. meanwhile the tiny european country of san marino is enjoying a return to pre-code normality thanks to sputnik the schools museums and gyms have reopened cinemas and theaters on april the 26th as the enclave is not
4:06 am
a full member of the e.u. it was able to turn to russia for its vaccine is currently under review by the e.u.'s medicine regulator meaning it cannot be deployed in member states until it is approved. great sheriff's department v. has proved to be a winning choice is every day that passes in recent weeks the number of injections is decreasing. 3 openings give us a breath of fresh air and get us moving towards a sense of normality without splitting the submarine and would probably not have had these reopening so sued and they said we helped with that and also because the
4:07 am
e.u. agreements were failing to deliver the phase of vaccine to us thanks to the russian vaccine play able to move our reopening timetable for. us. the the. russia has declared 20 czech diplomats persona non-grata and their rising diplomatic spat as a response to prague expelling 18 russian representatives while accusing mosco of being behind a huge explosion as an ammunition death back in 2014 the russian foreign ministry says it's a knesset to distract attention from an alleged coup attempt to bellow loose. the accusations are absurd especially as earlier the czech government laid the blame for the explosions at the door of the company's that. this hostile step is
4:08 am
a continuation of a series of russian actions conducted over the last several years by the czech republic one cannot also fail to notice the american influence by trying to win washington's favor as the us imposes sanctions against russia the czech authorities have even outdone their american masters so many diplomats were forced to start packing their suitcases in recent days because of expulsions and counter expulsions 1st of all america ordered 10 russian diplomats to head back to russia moscow's response was then almost identical then poland announced a similar move but there are sanctions only targeted 3 people and then eventually we heard from the czech officials who announced that prague decided to expel 18 people working for the russian embassy that is even more than that then america originally chose to punish you understand that this is
4:09 am
a very significant share of the embassy staff so you'd have to think that there must be a very serious reason for it well the czech authorities have accused this group of 8 thing of working as intelligence operatives and also blamed russia for being behind a manger explosion at an ammunitions military warehouse in the czech countryside that happened 7 years ago and killed 2 people no confirmation of the cause has ever been released by the czech authorities it coincides with the decisions on diplomat expulsions by washington and warsaw that's not all by the czech republic either is it private is seeking some suspects in particular well you know and that is the interesting part because the people the suspects that the check the. police are now looking for actually people with faces that you may find familiar these 2 were
4:10 am
once accused by the case of trying to poison the script balls in the united kingdom in 2018 so now when the authorities said that these 2 could be linked to that explosion immediately their names and photos were back and international headlines but the russian foreign ministry though is saying that these announcements and these steps that are taken by the czech authorities could only be a deliberate attempt to somehow distract the attention of the media and the international community from another story which is now in the news here in eastern europe it looks like when it's actually supported by facts that the west need it to cover up the importance of the information published by both russia and belarus about not just a conspiracy but an actual plan for a constitutional clue we need to speak about it so a coup was allegedly being planned against the leader of the roost what more do we
4:11 am
actually know about this this is a story apparently that was happening more or less samuel taney is the russian federal security service has announced lately that they have detained 2 men one with russian citizenship another one with dual citizenship del roofs and the u.s. detention happened in moscow and these 2 are believed to have been plotting a coup in bella ruse by attempting to assassinate the ball russian president alexander lukashenko and possibly even members of his family during victory day celebrations that are upcoming the bell russian president almost instantly blamed the u.s. for it for orchestrating this attempt but washington has denied any involvement now. you may wonder what does frog have to do with all this but we have to understand that the czech republic is a close u.s.
4:12 am
ally in eastern europe it's a member of nato not with a central role but still and russian officials very often have blamed washington for using some eastern european countries the czech republic in particular asked puppets of the assumption by the russian foreign ministry is that washington could be pressuring these countries into making political moves against russia to demonize it so that is the message coming out of moscow in the meantime the u.s. state department has already said that they are expressing full support for the move that's been made by prague. with the situation increasingly tense experts think further demonization of russia is the girl. this story in the czech republic is ludicrous i mean 767 years ago russian agents and by the way that
4:13 am
they must be changed pawns because russian shame sponsors because there were you know in seoul spring 2018 they were in prague in 20140022 so to score didn't. make an explosion that just completely drew to cross it's the odds that you know it will be a food very soon this story about the munition depo of the czech army which is not the 1st in nato it's a small army and it's not clear or dead poles you know you know it's just a mission they exploded this sounds like demonizing russia you know as much as they can now. as requested by biden's white house that has expelled 10 russian diplomats one of the interesting aspects of this story is to allege to russian agents who were what became public at the time the script of boys' names and there were people who thought the church were doing were going to rush in 2100
4:14 am
so it's very all this information subject we decided was already known we were just 2 years ago when you know come sort and so there's an element. which is ours or should behind. us states grapple to change voting along with following trumps claims of electoral fraud vied and sanctions russia came to gets yet again at fault for harming america's sacred elections that's coming up after the break. the. better but survival guide which they think is no more. distort deadly battle with. you sure it's still there are you going to get a back pack yeah. oh heck no. repatriation team

4:17 am
on rolls brother legendary el commandante fidel providing a glimpse into just how big a thorn in america's side cuba was and even remains to this day clearly the castro regime. will not change by its own choice. but cuba must change. i don't care how i die but rest assured if they invade us i'll die in combat. you don't make friends with uncle sam by overthrowing a dictatorship ruled by his appointee or by building a socialist state right in his backyard for del castro did both his relations with the us started with a trade war escalated into a naval blockade of the island and climaxed with something that had the world staring into the abyss over nuclear apocalypse during the cuban missile crisis and island nation smaller than the size of florida found itself squeezed between 2
4:18 am
superpowers in the thick of what almost became an all out atomic war it shall be the policy of this nation to regard any nuclear missile launched from cuba or against any nation in the western hemisphere as an attack by the soviet union on the united states things eased a little since then of course the us is a very different country the soviet union hasn't existed for nearly 3 decades but cuba cuba remains the same along with its ever so poor relations with the u.s. we will not live saying actions on the cuban regime we will enforce the embargo. was reaffirmed today that any strategy that seeks to destroy the revolution either through coercion and pressure or by using subtle methods you will feel. the troika of charity in this hemisphere cuba venezuela and nicaragua has finally met its
4:19 am
match so if that deal with all the secretary of the united states is deliberately lying by calling cuba a sponsor of terrorism this is slow and an insult to gates cuba cuba is no closer to freedom and democracy than it was 4 years ago the age of castro is coming to an end but is the anticapitalist cuba heading the same way well roll castro says over his dead body. but it does nothing nothing obliges me to make a decision but i firmly believe in the strength and value of example and the understanding of my fellow countrymen and let no one doubt that as long as i live i will be ready with my food in the stirrup to defend the homeland the revolution and socialism it may well be about who want to do it i hear every day. staying in latin america aussies on contact us spoken with journalists at glenn

greenwald on the desk right santa stanley have received a green little put on corruption among brazil's at least journalistic tactic is one that i actually 1st noticed when i started writing about politics in 2005 there had been a coup attempt in venezuela in 2002 to oust hugo chavez who whatever you think of him was democratically elected and very popular in the new york times editorial that it was a an attempt to restore democracy in this us back by installing what they call the respected business leader and it's step away from an attempt to step away from dictatorship and this is what the us media has been doing for decades calling us supported coups where they overthrow democratically elected governments and install you're pro u.s. dictators they call it and herald it as a victory for democracy and that's exactly what they did in 1000. 64 they called it a revolution instituted by brazilians to work tired of communist corruption in
4:21 am
tyranny and essentially for the next 21 years that this extremely repressive been brutal military regime as a manifestation of liberty and freedom. 3 arab israeli men have been arrested and officers injured as fireworks and rocks were held today israeli police separating rival demonstrations over the assault of a rabbi their religious leader was assaulted at the end today traditionally arab part of the city of jaffa design is jews rallied against the violence sparking a counter protest of arab israelis who lit street fires and attacks law enforcement officials who had formed a human barrier between the demonstrations it comes as the jewish population of israel hates all time lows they now make up less than 3 quarters of the country down 8 percent on when it was founded in 1948 the proportion of jewish immigrants is also at
4:22 am
a historic low well people on the streets of tel aviv why they thought that was the case the government in the country doesn't treat her citizen. fairly and really expensive to leave it's really hard to to grow and to create new businesses and actually to succeed i think it's easier to do it in different countries it is very simple the natural growth of the non jewish population was a higher rate of the jewish one that's just simple math count the number of children per jewish family and the number of children. you are the numbers are citizens of israel and it doesn't matter how many jewish or non jewish thats it. well the head of the israeli immigration policy center told r.t. the consequence is of a fall in the proportion of the jewish population but the main reason for the decline of the jewish population today is due to immigration israel has developed its g.d.p. is much higher than the countries around there are around the area many people in
4:23 am
the past did not see israel as a place that they want to immigrate to today we're seeing people from over a 100 different countries wanting to come to israel. and that has bring into a decline in the jewish population we are seeing a decline of the majority which may bring in the future for a situation where the most growing minorities will demand to change the status of israel as a jewish state even if we don't reach a situation with the jews or absolute minority and that can have of course far reaching implications for a country that see themselves as a homeland for the jewish people. the u.s. state of michigan is to start hearings on a bill package to change its election laws this week some reforms are being labeled as even more restrictive than those recently introduced by the state of georgia but there are many more states aiming to rehash the process following the 2020 election disastrous counts and fraud accusations meanwhile the winner of the last election
4:24 am
joe biden is thinking the biggest danger the process faces is still russia has now sanctioned by biden's argument for alleged election interference artie's my gas you have explains. round and round we go another election now the scandal scandals least of which had nothing to do with russia but again and it's moscow's fault more sanctions more accusations and more changing the subject during the campaign for the for the presidency i was unequivocal that if i was elected president i respond to any attempt to influence our elections to the last election and because elections are sacred are sovereign undertakings their expression of the world the american people and we cannot allow foreign power to interfere in our new democratic process with impunity there is a sense that american elections attending almost in 2 or need just undertaking
4:25 am
sacred only a divine affair where the free and the faithful the right in the streets to cost their god given ballot in the name of all that is good and america but all is not well in the land of the free there is a crisis of faith where as many as 40 percent of american citizens but leave the last election was rigged. out. of course it's all a shah presidential elections all the united states are a broken outdated mess they made claim that there was no serious fraud but the
4:26 am
system itself it's soo broken that in any other country they'd be calling it election fraud the reason nothing sacred about the electoral college. and the electoral college and the filibuster time to give the majority of voice. we cannot forget to bulldoze the virtual college it's a way to steal the voice of the people. if there's one thing that america is unified on right now is that we all hate the electoral college so let's abolish the
4:27 am
dumb thing. it isn't sacred when some people's votes count more than the votes of others depending on where they live there is nothing holy about people's votes being rounded up or rounded down by delegates it's an old ugly mess that frankly should have been obviated some time ago the electoral college is just the tip of the iceberg malin votes in 2020 were all over the place hundreds of thousands of votes lost and miscounted 0 thrown away were covered and recounted and about a 3rd of all state voters didn't even need to show that aidid to vote and this isn't a country with roughly 12000000 illegal immigrants speaking of medians medians of americans with a criminal but even if they've served their sentence i'm not allowed to vote none of this counts of fraud because see it's negro even mistakes of kosher or how
4:28 am
a load by the blessin constitution the validity of an election is not voided by honest mistakes or emissions unless they affect the result or at least render it uncertain but. hey america all its talk of democratic processes never was a democracy it's a federal republic where corporations and billionaires can have mother internet and the airwaves and the radio waves with billions of dollars worth of propaganda unabashed republican or democrat propaganda blasted at you from every side from a cab ride to new york to a country fair in iowa vote team red vote blue and best of luck if you're running as an independent america hasn't elected an independent president in a 170 years we face tremendous mainstream media and shout out we know this is a 2 party system so the greatest difficulty is just making sure that people know
4:29 am
we're here without the na that we only have these 2 options and i believe that's really had to work to keep us coloring behind party lines at the end of the day russia doesn't need to interfere to make a mess of american elections all it has to do is sit back and watch the show unfold but america america needs russia to interfere they can needs to blame someone else for this mess it needs a scapegoat in all of it on and avoid having to say hold on we have a problem so they make up more nonsense about sacred elections and blasphemous russian hackers and you think they keep the faith in the decorah put divisive electoral system from collapsing. many thanks joining us haron out see international hope you have a great start day we'll be back at the top of the hour the latest headlines.
