9:01 am
despite her lack of approval so far from the european medicines agency, i was regional counselor, spoke to us we will know what works and therefore just probably a continuation of the european union policy towards the russian federation and devastating floods. leave one person dead to missing 24 injured in, southern rushes, crimea province. as authorities declare a state of emergency correspondence are reporting from the region. so this is what some of the streets here and y'all look like right now. i mean, you can hardly call it even a street, you could probably take on the store and so on a canoe or something. i thought the 4 o'clock on sunday afternoon here at moscow, meaning your timing is perfect for the weekly where highlighting the top stories of the week and of the day on wednesday. geneva welcome to vladimir putin and joe
9:02 am
biden, for their 1st face to face meeting. as president of the russian and us leaders both describe the summit in positive terms put in said he had no illusions about the relationship, but talks last at roughly 3 and a half hours. and here is a quick recap of the day the the, i have no illusions following the meeting, either old or new. that can't be any illusions at all by and said he didn't bay russia by the way, that was a joke. let's have
9:03 am
a look at some of the key takeaways from the stomach abide and improved and agreed to talk about issues of strategic stability and nuclear arms control. they also discussed a possible prisoner exchange and agreed to return their respective ambassadors to their post. now, regrettably, there was no real breakthrough on the sensitive issue of cyber security, though they did agree to start to regular consultations on this issue. now as far as that goes with stumbling blocks, while the 2 presidents raised concerns about human rights issues and each other's countries, they also failed to come up with any saw that action plan for ukraine or our team. of course, our team was there in geneva, following the summit for you. here are some highlights. a long couple weeks i'll hold on high. i'll go around, of course the big russia us summit was building. now it's over, don, president, fight, and president putin. they sat down, they talked, i'm really the bottom line is look like ties between the 2 countries are better
9:04 am
today and really looks like the best you can. hopefully we're never going to move mountains in terms of the problems that exist. but what we have seen is them say that they'll read ignite diplomatic relations, maybe not tomorrow, maybe not to say that, but at some point it's going to happen. we'll see a rushing in washington us, some of that back in moscow. the very basics of diplomacy when it comes to just how they viewed one another. we heard from joe biden saying that it wasn't ever going to be friendly, really, but it was, it was positive, it was certainly positive. and we heard from me saying that it wasn't again, it wasn't context the wasn't somebody school ring more points that we don't know when a profi the job wasn't to get one or someone out. it was st. pete to become and just been communication, able to have an open frank dialogue to dissolve to in the future. and to do that without any hostility. and that's what we heard from your billing group. mister,
9:05 am
there was no hospitality on the country meeting was very constructive. our views differ on many issues, but i believe both sides have shown a willingness to understand each other and to bring up differing positions close together. there wasn't any, any strident action taken, or we disagreed. i disagree, stated where it was where he disagreed, he stated. but it was not done in a hyperbolic you atmosphere. both presidents have now left, 3 watched both. they are playing fly away. we've actually got a pretty good view and it comes to plain spot. i mean, i know the geneva runway, like no one else travel. you controls gotten now thing on may the lucian 96 as in boeing. busy 74744. now i can see them from about 10 kilometers away out of new stream. but actually the security has been something so note, but for the soldiers we sold the police. we saw the boat going mad on the lake,
9:06 am
the sunset over the lake, just behind to see your engine, even city looking resplendent. it has been roasting. but i want to say it's pathetic fantasy absolutely perfect for the heated tools. and i think they probably walk heated bite himself, gave an unclean that there were some things that he was not willing to negotiate. but moist also said, you know what, we have different views on this. we don't have to look i to i but we still have to protect our own people and protect global security. now course the best person place to tell us everything about especially president putin's press conference, was more at god who himself was literally in the hall. i believe he's got a chance to all president putin. a question himself, the won't be difficult questions, that's vladimir putin face, that which joe barton had the good fortune to escape. what questions about the opposition that we are putting? the pointed out that the protesters rest of following the event on capitol hill
9:07 am
that they faced as much as 25 years in jail. for you 5 years in jail, for a political protest that the year due by the said that there's new comparison to because they're criminal, but elected in the bony, who was convicted in serving a 2 year sentence for the violation of his early release. so he was convicted by russian court and vladimir putin. he says that you do, americans are comparing what happened the capitol hill to the treatment of election yvonne and saying there's nothing in common. but the nation is just, you know, by going on non systemic opposition. and the citizen you've mentioned, this person knew full well that he was violating russian law. and he knew full well that there was a warrant for his arrest. nevertheless, he came back to russia and he deliberately wanted to be arrested. so he did what he wanted to do. what else can we say here? one of the things both leaders agreed on is to borrow job buttons was they need to
9:08 am
be rules of the world. so that as a rule to how both countries should behave in case they come into this agreement over something that the dispute will outright conflict. ab resolve them as a civilized partners. i wouldn't say freds of thought, but they need a framework of how to behave and for that to happen, those countries need to be held equally accountable. that wouldn't do one country gets away with doing something and the other doesn't feel bad and said phrase that caused quite disturb online. and he said, how would the united states feel if it was she'd by the rest of the world as meddling in for an election? which much of the world she's the united states? i do it. but in this rate, that mapleton was us, russia is accused of being predictable. by the way, how is russia planning to chase? here vladimir smudgin was going to know that when you shit, 3rd story,
9:09 am
he's given your name. when you say the with believe that russian foreign policy is unpredictable, will let me send the park back to you. the u. s. leaving the abm treaty in 2002 with absolutely unpredictable. what are they doing it for that undermine the basis of international stability in the area of strategic security. then withdrew from the i n f treaty in 2019. there's nothing stable about that. the open sky treaty withdrawal, there's nothing stable about it and almost nothing left. thank god, in the field of strategic stability. mr. biden has taken a completely adequate decision to prolong the new start treaty for 5 years. and you know, if you take the situation with ukraine with crimea, that's where this all sounds right. what stable about endorsing the qu, they talk when the president yanna covey agreed to all the demands of the opposition. he was basically ready to abandon power declared new elections in about
9:10 am
3 months to know if the blood feels cool was needed. that led to known consequences southeast of the country, then crimea. and you think it's also predictably, no, i don't think so. what do we do at the end of the day? what happened here in geneva? decent summit was basically a trust building exercise. very few specifics was agreed upon if any. they agreed to talk about many things to work on many things, but ultimately it is a trust exercise. it is about laying a foundation on which russia the united states can rebuild relations. i wouldn't say build on relations because there aren't much left to speak off there, there in taxes. whether it worked, joe biden says, we'll find out within the year whether it looks he results from the, from all the tools from all the agreements and all the criticism that both sides had for each other. but the message is, the preliminary. it was successful that he spent the day in the villa where those
9:11 am
talks were taking place. this was billed as a heavy weight clash of the titans. perhaps we weren't expecting any major results, but certainly looking much between 2 political big guns. what they did say, both of them was that they talk to not just the president biden, the president, but joe biden, to mon vladimir per month when they agreed on things that they could cooperate on. they talked about those when they disagree. they made sure that both of their points were made as forcefully as they could. joe biden, the us president saying though, while it was all very cordial, it's unlikely that they are going to be embracing one another and swaying side to side anytime soon. i don't think he's looking for a cold war or the united states. i don't think it's about, as i said to him, i said your generation of mine were about 10 years apart. this is not a come by our moment is used to say back in the sixty's, united states like less, hug each other. but as clearly not anybody's interest,
9:12 am
your countries are mine for us to be in a situation where we're in a new cold war. although despite the generally positive tones from both presidents, the american media apparently was not happy with the summit directed by raj. if negative comments, joe biden accusing him of not being tough enough. we've got him uprooted and ultimately saying the russian president got everything he wanted. the russian leader for his part though described his counterpart as a professional. but if it's just, you know, i'd like to say that the image of president biden, which the press in russia and even in america is drury has nothing to do with reality. he's been on a long journey flying across the atlantic. so we're talking about jet like here. you know, even when i fly, it throws me off balance a little. and yet he looked alert. i told him face to face for 2 hours or maybe a little more than that. he's completely in the loop. he did look into his notes from time to time,
9:13 am
but we'll do that. and that image has being drawn by the media kind of low you into a full sense of security. but there's no reason for that whatsoever, because it is a professional and you've got to be very careful with him in order not to miss anything. he doesn't miss anything, i can assure you. in geneva, the u. s. leader was fortunate enough to avoid tough questions from the media perhaps because no foreign outlets were present at his press conference. the russian president was ultimately bombarded with questions from international journalists right after the meeting. did you commit to stopping your crank down against the opposition groups inside russia? dead by election of ownership, electing of on him? why? why are young people not allowed to protest in russia? what the but way press core does as i pointed out, they never challenge a u. s. leader from the last. so they'll never ask him about julian his sons. they will only ask about navarro ne and
9:14 am
a this bloomberg white house reporter jennifer jacobs. both on twitter about she heckling putin and fantasizes about biden smiling at her, which says everything you need to know about these denial golfers. they're not holding power to account in their own capital, their heckling the designated enemies of america, and hoping to get the approval of their president. well, the mentality of these journalists is the mentality of the east coast establishment . they operate from a place of american exceptionalism and american innocence. they cannot fathom that the u. s. could possibly be literally paying opposition, figures, managing opposition, figures. and so when these reporters were badgering couldn't about no volunteer, they were unable to accept his response, which was that we don't want to see something like what you saw on january 6 with the movement of insurrection as d a. r g
9:15 am
a. that is, the international of the russian region of crimea has declared a state of emergency amid severe flooding, which is left at least now one person dead and 24 injured. we understand almost 2000 people were evacuated from their homes, as the eagle has done off no reports from the region i with me. so this is what some of the street here and y'all look like right now. i mean, you can hardly call it even a street, you could probably take on the store until on a canoe or something. i mean, just walking around here is already a challenge. it's a challenge to keep your balance alone. in fact, on top of that,
9:16 am
i can feel large boulders every once in a while, hitting my feet and legs. now speaking of the st, well, the ground floor of the residential buildings here are gone. there are no more. and this is obviously hugely distressing to the locals. so this is where the army and the emergency workers have focused their efforts right now. in 2016, this man's house was destroyed by fire. so we families started from scratch. the final touches had been made just days before the flood hit. it all happened all too fast. oh yes, a bucket. i have a dog and it's not to dr. strangely at 4 30 in the morning. so i took it outside my door saved us, the rain was so strong by 6 o'clock, the water had reached its banks. i will call my son and we start to stop the water from entering our home. but nothing could stop it. we could only go about documents and not fit. we lost everything new. could you disaster like this has never happened before. i hope no one will ever have to go through. what we did is the
9:17 am
tragedy was making our authority to help us to help the people, the emergency ministry and the army have had to join the efforts to deal with the aftermath of the flood least as a software. we are clearing the drainage system, removing debris from the flood, so the water drink away more quickly. efforts are aided by volunteers. in this school, even the little ones have come out to help to the best of their ability. stephanie special debate and then was completely loaded, rescue work is pumped out the water and we scooped out the silt and mont. now we are taken out of the furniture to see what we can still use. our children came to help asking us to give them a job. they carry out toys. we gave them simple jobs. so this is what a beach here normally looks like this time a year. but this is what it actually looks like right now. it was supposed to be
9:18 am
the beginning of a high to receive and, but obviously that will have to wait. now. i'm a good done of reporting from crimea c. i still the come here on the weekly, on the international lockdown rules have been extended again in england this time by full week and made the spread of a new variance. we get reaction from lockdown, fatigued, londoners, and just about i use join me every thursday on the alex summon, show and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politics sport. business. i'm show business. i'll see you then me ah, with
9:19 am
me ah ah, i use the, the, the, the, the 20 minutes past the hour here in the russian capital and moscow house set
9:20 am
a grim new record in new covert infections registering more than 9000 cases in 24 hours a new restrictions are now being brought in, including limiting non emergency medical care for on vaccinated people. in a tranquil picked up the story 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 going on? it looks like the new delta varian which recreate with an is taking its toll on the rushing capital. according to the mayor of moscow, almost 90 percent of the new infections in the city are the new delta variance. and also we're going to see them. the delta strain spreads foster, and the worst thing about it is that the person needs strong immunity twice as many
9:21 am
antibodies to resistance compared to the original hand viruses. so essentially we're going through the same thing again, but with more severe consequences, the government has come to the understanding that the pace of the vaccination has been very slow 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 a weekend immune system for them could be 900,
9:22 am
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 our exception to everybody, regardless of vaccinations, status i campaign in the city to promote booster jabs will also begin in the near future at the moscow's mayor office announced mandatory vaccination for 60 percent of the staff in the service sector, so it looks like the russian capital is bracing itself for nothing less but a real vaccination boom. when vladimir 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. don't get even worse in a situation is due to 3 things, the absolute nihilism. that is people failure to comply with restrictions, the little vaccination rate and the slight nature of the virus. in the meantime,
9:23 am
the existing anti colbert measures in the russian capital have been extended till the end of june name leave 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 floor than 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 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 region of central italy wants to allow tourists to have received the russian and russians sputnik v cobra chart. to visit
9:24 am
the mark a province is urging the government to open up the entire country to such travelers . and we heard from the local counselor who actually came up with this initiative. most everyone knows the effectiveness of scrutiny neighbor's son marina vaccinated, whispered nick, but we are not supposed to allow citizens of san marino to into italy. now, our region intends to open up to continually welcoming russians and we want to maintain relations with russia. we are friends with russia, and we want to continue business in the tourism sector, russian citizens and tourists, even if the vaccinated cannot come to italy. and this is cause tremendous economic loss because it's really attract the loss of rushing towards each. each comes a week off of the european parliament, gave final approval to the new digital certificate scheme. for cove, it includes data on pcr tests, antibodies and vaccination, but only for shots approved by the european medicines agency. so far the regulator has approved for vaccines. these did not include the russian chinese or india and
9:25 am
one's a jericho, marcia, again, so it's become a highly politicized issue. much you should know, in my opinion, the decision is cost political reasons and these are not medical reasons because he was and therefore it is probably a continuation of your opinions policy towards the russian federation. i have absolutely no sir, that we are protecting the interest of more. k b too often protects the conflict with the interests european european citizens. but we have primarily residence in the market. and so we have our interest, especially in such absurd situation, like the one we're talking about. while england's long wait had lockdown easing has been pushed back again by 4 weeks. cobit cases have been slowly rising since the start of june, with more than 10000 new infections reported on saturday. the new delta of varied reportedly spreading fast across to england is deemed to be up to 80 percent more
9:26 am
transmissible than the previous dominant strain. and the prime minister says to lockdown extension will help for week delay, we think would make even more of a difference in reducing the overall number of, of deaths. and that's why we're, that's why we're doing it. and at the end of that period of, by, by july, the 19th, we do think that we would have built up a very considerable wall of immunity around the whole of the population. i, despite the worsening of virus threat and he looked down, protested riley, mid downing street in london on monday chanting. shame on you and demanding freedom is what some people in the british capital told everyone to do that that day in those 6 months. that seems to be really positive and, and gets backseat back later. and then to be told that, you know,
9:27 am
4 weeks of things not being being opened. it is, it is very frustrating. it's too early to come out with plenty of pen is now social distance ending going out and taking it for that. i think it's a great idea to try and get them get more people's like i don't agree with closing for the 4 weeks. so delaying everything because maybe they could have done something before lights trying not to open too quick. 2 people sitting inside because no one knew about the discovery until now when you are hired to be there are lots of people with businesses and things like that, that really struggle and actually, especially in the country just there was a top stories that for this edition of the weekly here for this hour on the international, nearly half hour for sunday afternoon, a busy week for all of your headlines. we are back soon with more of them at the
9:28 am
top of the hour me the in the conservative republicans near once will use against bite in the same tactics that republicans had to see coming from democrats to consume. so they would accuse binding of bean to softer, indecisive, electronically. agenda. not often enough to definitely they will try to sabotage some of the agreements that
9:29 am
have been reached. geneva ah, always be polite, never engage with an aggravated or confrontational office. don't get into any conversation to start answering questions. just ask for an attorney to survive and interrogation, you've gotta be ready to stand your ground. definitely don't want to be going to trial in the jump suit. one cups. you're more likely to walk free if you're rich and guilty, you are, if you're poor and you got 2 eyes and 2 ears and one mouth. so you should be seeing and hear and a whole lot more than you're saying. if you don't take that advice,
9:30 am
usually going to dig yourself a whole the las vegas was the last resort. it was like tombstone territory, where all outlaws go to die. the mob was real generous with everything they gave the rooms away. the drinks away. the only thing they were concerned about was just making money on the gambling table, food and rooms and all that was just seen as the service to keep the machines turn in. and you always felt welcome, even if you were poor. because we were all for walked out the door for the most part, right. you can lose all the money that you had and you'd be can't dinners and breakfasts is and rooms and everybody was a high roller when they came to vegas, you come back. the next year and blow your money again, the main.
