11:00 am
nickname, king. oh, there was, i got a recall of what was going on. i, i called that lighter an artsy and moscow sets a grim record, and the daily number of colbert 19 cases is source to an old time high. the city's mayor has announced a raft of new measures b, u, and after seneca both claimed victory and a legal love of backseat supplied delayed court orders. the pharmaceutical trying to deliver 50000000 more doses by the end of september. and devastating floods leave at least one person dead. the injured in southern rushes, crimea profit off, the torrential rains for rivers to reach that bank. we understand now 4 districts have all declared a state of emergency. ah,
11:01 am
your friday worldwide headlines live from moscow. this is the international here from the time news team. welcome to your stories. moscow has not registered a daily record. hi, this in new cobit infections. 9000 cases registered in just the past 24 hours. the city may says a host of new restrictions are being brought in, including limiting non emergency medical care 4 on vaccinated patients, of course will than any patricia details. less than 2 weeks ago. the numbers in moscow were plus $2900.00 cases. and there you have it this friday, a new sad record of more than plus $9000.00 in a whole country like mexico for example. this figure is 2 times smaller. so what is
11:02 am
going on? it looks like the new delta varian which originated in india is taken install on the washing capital. according to the mayor of moscow, almost 90 percent of the new infections in the city are the new delta variant. the government has come to the understanding that the pace of the vaccination has been very though, and now they are rushing to change that. now here's one of the groundbreaking decisions introduced by the medical authorities and the washing capital in moscow. free non essential care in the hospitals will only be provided for those who have been vaccinated. everyone will still get the emergency treatment if it's required. if you are a patient with the cancer or with blood diseases, you will still get all the necessary treatment. but in other cases for non essential care, like i said, a jab will be required. patients have
11:03 am
a weekend immune system for them could be 900, is especially dangerous. it is impossible to avoid all contact with them or to isolate them. all those who can have the job for special reasons will still be admitted to hospital and emergency medical care will be provided with exception to everybody regardless of vaccination status. i campaign in the city to promote booster jabs will also begin in the near future. at a couple of days ago, the moscow's mayor office announced mandatory vaccination for 60 percent of the staff in the service sector. so it looks like the rushing capita was bracing herself for nothing less but a real vaccination boom. when latimer prudence press secretary dmitri passcode was asked about what the kremlin makes of the new spikes and the measures here is what the spokesperson replied. the worsening situation is due to 3 things, the absolute nihilism. that is people failure to comply with restrictions,
11:04 am
the low vaccination rate and the slight nature of the virus. in the meantime, the existing anti cove measures in the russian capital have been extended till the end of june, namely, the closure of bars, restaurants and clubs during the night. and also a 3rd of staff members being required to work from home. in addition to that, the moscow mayor's office has also bad mass gatherings of over 1000 people. besides this dance floors and football fans, those will also have to be shut down for now. once again, i'd like to point out that so far, these are the measures that have been announced for the washing capital. this isn't on a federal level just yet, but we have received a warning from the authorities that all. busy of this could be extended to other regions of russia if that is required. so this is a possibility in the near future as well. a quarter in brussels as ordered
11:05 am
astrazeneca to deliver 50000000 more doses, if it's cobit vaccine to the european union. by the end of september, the rolling follows a long running legal battle over supply delays on both sides right now, claiming victory. as trying to understand the story here, he's trying to do but jordan, we live on the program. charlie, good to see you asters and it says it's a vindicated b. e. u doesn't seem to think so. can you explain what's actually happened here? i guess that's why both sides claiming victory in this court case, over whether or not astrazeneca broke its contract to deliver supplies of covey 19 that's at least would you repeat? the commission alleged when it's louis went to court a few weeks ago, it was demanding in court that astrazeneca be forced to supply some extra deuces. meaning it would have to bring a 100 and twin, a 1000000 doses of coven 19 jobs to the european union by the end of june. so in
11:06 am
the next few weeks, but the belgian court rejected that. and set out a completely different time table for astrazeneca to deliver extra jobs to the european union. the judge also rule that the european union european commission didn't have the exclusive right. it didn't have the priority to any of the astrazeneca jobs that were manufactured to here, also in the u. k. which is also something that the commission is lawyers had claimed. and additionally, the court recognized that astrazeneca had had problems with its manufacturing processes. that's what astrazeneca lloyd's it said was the reason for this to lay. therefore, astrazeneca sees this is being a win. astrazeneca has fully comply with its agreement with the european commission. and we will continue to focus on the urgent task of supplying an
11:07 am
effective vaccine, which we're delivering at no profit to help protect people in europe and around the world from the deadliest pandemic in a generation. well, the european commission is also crowing that it had a victory in court by this ruling, by the belgian judges. well, why? well, that's because of the court outlining this new time table for extra deliveries of the job to come here to the european union. basically what the court said is that by the end of september, astrazeneca has to supply an additional $15000000.00 doses to the block. and if it doesn't, it will receive a fine of around 10 euros per dose is delayed, but not 10 years per day. a delay, which is what the european commissions lawyers had actually asked for. but this ruling was welcomed by phone delay and the commission president this decision
11:08 am
confirmed the position of the commission astrazeneca did not live up to the commitment made in the contract. it is good to see that an independent judge consensus. this shows the european vaccination campaign not only delivers for our sits since day by day. it also demonstrates that it was founded on a sound legal basis. but this is a pretty hollow victory if it is a victory in any sense because european commission and perhaps it's just trying to save face by saying that, why? well, the deadline that's been set by the court, which is the end of september is the deadline. the astrazeneca said it was looking at working towards any way towards the end of the year, delivering all of the doses that it was supposed to. and in rebuttal of the idea that the european commission is wanting court today, after seneca has said that it's going to mush that deadline set by the court anyway. and many will be perhaps wondering,
11:09 am
given the circumstances surrounding astrazeneca how it's been seen here in europe for the last few months, why this case even went to court. and i say that because across the european union, many countries have put severe restrictions on who can have astrazeneca and lots of countries. it's only age groups over a certain age. in some countries, it has been rejected from use all together. and that's because of those links that we keep hearing about with very rare but fatal blood clots. and also in the last few days, we heard from the head to the cook, with 900 task force. this is for european medicines agency, which is the use of truck regulator. when he was aust, with the idea that astrazeneca should just be entirely ditched now. as a job. he said yes, it should, begging the question why this went to court in the 1st place. life from power, se charlotte dupon sky, like you switch the voters of approved
11:10 am
a new anti terror law in a referendum. it allows police to keep tabs on people as young as 12 years old without any court order. however, there's plenty of concern about the new law, un special repertoire on torch nails. meltzer has called it on professional, inefficient and dangerous. last year, experts appointed by the un human rights council, so that the legislation sets a dangerous precedent and needs a national set. it opens an era of generalized suspicion, but i've got fear taking a closer look at the point of the 3 are jews per balance of the tax and stabbings in recent years have rattled society. one thing led to another in switzerland is now home to the most draconian counter terror laws. in europe. it was the will of the people. that's the thing with suisse direct democracy,
11:11 am
new middle met. i've people want to give police state, uncheck powers, they can and they did 57 percent voted in referendum for these. the question is that people fully understand what they were voting for. thank if you notice, i think a lot of people are not aware how dangerous this law is. and as it is cutting into the freedom of all activists in this country. and now you can be imprisoned when i put under house arrest or put under suspicion of terrorism without a court order. and i think the people were not sufficiently aware before the referendum. police can now monitor those as young as 12 years old, limit their movements for them to take part in interviews, which means interrogate them for any reason that they deem good enough. i will be able to put suspect as young as 15 and the house arrest for months and months and rights groups have been ringing. alarm bells about this. let me sit said the scenes
11:12 am
national. this law is extremely problematic because renter and iraq generalized suspicion any person can be targeted by this definition of terrorist activity. a definition that does not correspond to that providers and the criminal code and does not correspond to international standards, which always includes element violence. the crux of the matter is that these new laws, apart from the ethical complications of going off the 12 year olds, that preventative by design. and preventative is a very controversial thing. he ordinarily, if you commit to crime, for example, you get punished right. while preventative means you will stopped before you can commit the crop before it's, it's a hobb before you do something you might regret. and the sweets are still very much divided over this. i voted against it. of course, what this may give authority is,
11:13 am
is it gives them ground to take measures against citizens before a judge has ordered those measures evoking in favor to protect the population. exactly, i think it's necessary unfortunately, because some people they don't have exactly the same manner of thinking. respectfully, i'm so one. so carol, reason can be everywhere it's it's really the terrorists come from government. never, never terrors. come from everybody. nobody. no, no, no. on the government id vote for that. i know i was not very sure, but i did the vote for voted against because of civil liberties restrictions which go pretty far under that low. and that's the thing making all, all of us become prospects so wide and vague is the definition of terrorist activity. if you google something that someone might construe as dangerous view,
11:14 am
cracked, or a bad joke. if your friends fall in a law enforcement reva, you can become suspect. i'm the freedom loving us with. for me, i mean, it's a, it's a shame. it's an absolute shame that we have that we have to vote for such a law. and it's even the big shame is that the people accepted it. everyone that step don't agrees with you know, the strategy from our account to for example. but what is coming that the basic can lock away everyone. so i mean, it's even harder than that. the patrick, i think it will be use most likely against this climate activists. but i think the much bigger problem that i see because the place except that, that kind of actually act is that a lot of other countries might take it over and say, you know, switzerland period as well. so we can do it also over here in saudi arabia, wherever this is, this is
11:15 am
a terrible sign for the rest of the world. and so i'm very, very much shame to be with, oh, some people are planning to fight that. but chances are great at the end of the day, sweet authorities and monsters, they care for their people. the question is, the future, how future rule is we'll, we'll this law and that's what worries people the inmates of a texas prison being relocated to make room. and a spike in crimes committed by illegal migrants. a mass thing that the u. s. southern border, the texas governor as justifies the decision by saying that the state has to uphold the rule of law by its own means. unclaiming the bite administration is ignoring the ongoing humanitarian crisis at the border. over to our correspondent now, he is caleb morgan. branches destroyed threats to resonance. lots of chaos, texas border sheriffs say in the 30 years they've been guarding the border. they
11:16 am
have not seen anything like it. crimes related to illegal border crossings by undocumented workers are now on the rise. i've never seen it quite like this. we have always had a fence. got here. fence got there because they're hauling dope or small kids or something. but we've never seen the intentional big 4 by 4 holes in the fans or now and 10 foot section just can't completely out. that's really starting to bother me . it's a mess. that's what it is. nobody seems to care about is down here. we're 6065 miles away from the border and they say that everything's okay. no, it's not. ok. conservatives are voicing outrage that amid the situation. restrictions are being loosened and not tightened. trump era. 2 restrictions on asylum seekers intended to curb gangs and domestic violence have just been lifted. the numbers are big in may. 180000 people were apprehended at the border. the biggest monthly total since april of 2000 border states are now pleading for help.
11:17 am
florida is sending officers to arizona and texas to help out texas is now putting $250000000.00 of their own state budget into building a border wall. busy of their own and the texas governor blames joe biden for dropping the ball. texas is going to do with the by the ministration is refusing to do. we will be using every tool available to us under the law. and we will ensure that we build the wall, arrest people, and make texas safe. many border state residents feel like the white house just doesn't care. it's been over 85 days, but vice president common harris has still not visited the border. i write to invite you to the us to the board to observe the ongoing humanitarian crisis and share the perspective of americans who live the. i encourage you to join me and other members of congress. while we visits with the people in the ground who deal with these issues every day house democrats were able to block a bill, but forward by republicans that would have actually prevented comma la harris from
11:18 am
taking any international trips until she visited the border. pri of border state residency is one of the outrage at government mismanagement. what i believe is that the democrats are playing a long game of obscure and confuse while they try to get as many illegal immigrants . i'm still going to call them back into the country as possible. well, the democrats haven't taken any action that will actually solve probably on the border. those are actions that trump took during his administration that solved problems at the border. wonderfully well, the combination of the fence and the working with the mexican president to get the immigrants to stop before they get to the border. all that was taken care of and working very well during a trump era. la harris was put in charge of the border by joe biden, but she hasn't gone to visit because she doesn't want to tow a group of reporters around taking pictures and asking questions about the chaos she doesn't want to draw attention to it. she'd rather embarrass herself by talking in circles and flying off to europe and doing other things and saying that she must
11:19 am
do those instead of going to the board. she doesn't want to go to the order because it will draw attention to how much of a failure it is in normal viewing terms. now the biden white house has certainly offered up a change in rhetoric and policy is when it comes to the us mexico border. but so far things have not really gotten better. in fact, they've gotten quite a bit worse. many are wondering when the white house will step up and offer some real solutions. caleb mob been r t new york pause here in moscow. the your district in the russian province of crimea has declared a state of emergency amid severe flooding. this left at least one person dead and 8 others injured. hundreds have been evacuated from the city center off. the torrential rains caused a rip off the bus to find the area surrounding the local power station has been inundated in their affairs of a likely blackouts into one local opposed to this video and social media. you can
11:20 am
see and i believe is a struggling to move through fast flowing. the realtor administration has asked the russian black see police station nearby to provide emergency health of water supplies and the district has been switched off already. that's how the people to start off on bottled drinking water. and we heard from one reporter in this situation has no stabilized. at least the rain has stopped b for that it rained for 11 hour straight. so the city center is under water. public transport has been paralyzed overall, more than a 1000 people are involved in the rescue operation. emergency crews are working alongside residents to help people as much as they can to more rivers breach their banks today. and we haven't stopped the flow yet. the head of the administration has been over seeing the operation of the streets of the city since early morning. we met her when we got here, she updated us in the situation. she has everything under her personal control. and
11:21 am
i'm sorry, we can now say for certain that the weather has come down. but just yesterday you could only cross the road here. if your 2 meters hide or in a special vehicle, there were turned into a real river with cars floating around the military actually very professionally. they've provided all necessary aid. i saw the emergency services rescued to families who are trapped inside their homes by the floods. and other locals help them to also provide moral support and braver once jumped in the water to get people out. there's also a similar pitcher unfolding and several other parts of crimea. we understand now a total of 4 districts have declared a state of emergency. the latest being a philadelphia and kiera where there's been extensive flood damage. the city of coach is one of the worst affective, though the disaster struck there on wednesday night where hundreds of a residential buildings were being flooded. then you can see streets tend to rivers and cars were mostly submerged, and more than
11:22 am
a 1000 residents of fled the area and staying a temporary shelters. the top official and crimea visited the city earlier to oversee the rescue operation. now this coming video from coach has gone viral on line 3. people can be seen swimming behind a boat carrying the head of the crimean administration. official says that they will rescue was helping vessels move through the flooded streets and it will be given award for that one was the impartiality of the british police as endanger due to woke trends that's according to the chief of manchester. police says the public fed up with officers virtue, signaling instead of fighting serious crimes. i do not think that things like taking the ne, demonstrating that you have a commonality of view with the protest is the policing is compatible with the standards of service that people require. if they're police, i think we're past the high watermark the public getting a little bit fed up virtue signaling police offices when they really rather we just
11:23 am
locked up burglars last summer or a wave of b l m protests across the u. k. following the movements rise in america during the rallies, pictures emerged of u. k. police officers taking the knee and solid hours with the demonstrators. back in the spring this year, the countries independent police authority of the force to quote, think very carefully before making such gestures. meanwhile, the u. k, it's been hit by a spike in burglaries in the recent years with many cases going unsolved, manchester's police chief is valid to change the situation and investigate even minor crimes. however, one former police officer we spoke to has a little confidence that will happen. you can fully service does not have sufficient resources to do everything properly. it doesn't even have sufficient resources to do most things. reasonably. something is criticized to place service react, so that by moving resources from elsewhere into it, it gets better for something else and starts to 5. and he's criticized. we will
11:24 am
just go round and round and round in circles because nobody's actually diagnosing the fundamental problem. and doing anything to trade back is essential that the police are seen to be on biased. that is a concern about taking the ne, happened a couple of times with a few officers the particular place. i think the place service has been affected. like virtually everything, every other institution in this country, by a change in attitudes, particularly deciding and then towards these signaling sort of things and whatever . it's something that is happening and why does society in fact, across the world, we seem to be getting more and more of this. i don't know why a new investigation has revealed that missing u. s. military weapons have been used in violent street crimes. according to the study, at least 1900 military firearms were lost or stolen over the past decade or many others had just vanished without a trace from the military supply chains. the main site had reason for this. our
11:25 am
security failures, such as soldiers sleeping on duty and surveillance system malfunctions. now stolen military guns have in some cases been sold to street gang members and then of course used on the streets with the missing guns, often traveling a long distance 1st. for example, in one case already linked an army pistol stolen from a base in north carolina for shootings in new york, where we discussed the implications with peace activist tie berry. there is no real basis for the united states to know how many weapons they has or where they're going. the weapon becomes lost or stolen. they are to report it sometimes months. most people, they lose their weapon, they get it still and they don't even take the time to report it to the authorities . people are selling guns across the street to their neighbor without registering. there is no culpability, no responsibility. there is no criminal time jail time. find is for someone that
11:26 am
loses a got, we have the number one highest budget for our military in the, in the world. and it's growing every single day. and when there's no way to account for, for these guns, no way to account for military spending in general. there, the corruption level is very, very, very high. well, we need to have responsible military officials. we need to have laws on our books. but the, these, these, we've been asking for these laws for decades and now, and the congress is incapable of coming up with real serious nonsensical, impactful gone laws in were the same with the military. and you survey has revealed that almost 60 percent of americans view. so called critical race theory and an unfavorable light that has ever more american states
11:27 am
oppose teaching it in schools. they're calling it divisive so far, legislation to bind. the theory from classrooms has been tabled in over 20 states, and 5 governors have already sided into law parents on law make as opposed to c, r t. say children should not be taught values based on someone's skin color. critical race theory is teaching children the because of your skin color. you are inherently bad and racist or you can't succeed in life. and i don't think we should tell children that they are inherently but based on the color of their skin. a quick reminder, what critical race theory is, although it seems different, people have their own definition, but in essence it's a theory developed in the us that suggests that racism is systemic and pretty much everything is racist. white people are inherently privileged and oppressors, minorities are inherently oppressed, most interactions between people of different ethnic groups revolve around racism, and political and social structures, especially in the west,
11:28 am
are all founded and operate on racism. basically, almost everything is about skin color. so proponents of critical race theory say that teaching it is informative, a critical study of history and systemic racism meant to prevent repeating past mistakes. the outcome is not to shame or have someone feel guilty or feel shame for our past and for our history. that's not even productive, but what we want to do is for people to understand it, so that going forward will be aware of it. we can make sure that we don't pass laws or educate or do housing. that leaves groups of people, black people or brown people behind. but for the tractors that nothing like how it's actually being taught and applied. after years of critical race theory being drilled in schools, many have come to see it is indoctrination of kids. and so radical ideology aimed at getting them to despise their own country and pitting people against each other,
11:29 am
based on the color of their skin, teaching kids to hate their country and to have each other is not worth one red cent of taxpayer money. naturally, supporters of the theory are outraged over attempts to ban these teachings with some saying that this is a ration of the issue and that there are more important problems to solve. but with how society is already divided, it may be no surprise that the most vocal opponents of the theory, for example, the parents of kids being taught this. don't see how this actually help he'll social device. does racism exist? yes. our identity, politics and fading, almost everything and everyone is racist. a solution to the problem while the jury is out on that, i guess. but for a growing number of states, it sounds like a resounding no right now. critical race theory is a time where division is not needed right now in america because there's so many so
11:30 am
many different styles of politics that are going on right now in america. bad teaching past hurts has judgments, has failures in american history is not something i feel bad at this day and time needs to be just pushed down people's throats as a way of learning in our educational systems here. now, people and there are different parties in america that are wanting to use it as a way to divide our country. i think that most people, bad practice this type of barion practice. these type of socialistic activities in america, they're only setting us backwards. they're not pushing us forward. it's been a pleasure having you with us here for this ours friday program here. when i asked you to national thank you for joining us. your program returns at the top of the me the.
