the the, the us unveils the possibility of another round of sanctions against russia just 4 days after the biden summit engine, even in spite of the optimistic messages from both inside the also in the story that shape the weak moscow said a grim record on a daily number of colbert 19 cases, stores to an all time the cities mirror of the rough measures region of central italy was the welcome tourists who have received rushes, but the v shelf. despite
5:01 pm
a lot of approval so far from the european medicine as agency or regional concert or spoke to archie, we will know sputnik works and therefore just probably the issue of the european union's policy towards the russian federation. devastating floods leave one person dead to missing and 24 injured in. southern rushes, crimea province says authorities declare a state of emergency or corresponding reports from the region. so this is what some of the streets here. and y'all to look like right now. i mean, you can hardly call it even a street, you could probably take on that store and throw on a canoe or something. i can tell stories from the past 7 days and right up to the moment developments to welcome to the weekly rti. i'm, you know, leo u. s. government has said it's drawing up yet another round of tea rushes sanctions
5:02 pm
. it's happening despite largely off beat messages. having emerged from the biden summit, which took place just 4 days ago. russia's foreign ministry spokeswoman has condemned the moved thing moscow will be forced to retaliate. we have always given a consistent response to legal actions of the united states. it is strange that some people in washington enjoy this obstacle course so much. american idealogues have revealed themselves. they need all of the fuss around suppose poisoning as a tool for solving the problems of their own non competitiveness. it is a surprise and you know, given the slightest twist that we're seeing right now, it seems that you know, the relationship between russia and the us. they are not going to improve anytime soon. in fact, they can get even worse, because jack salim, the u. s. national security advisor has just said on seeing that they are the biden's administration, is preparing new sanctions against moscow. we are preparing another package of
5:03 pm
sanctions to apply and these case as well. we've shown all along the way that we're not going to pull our punches whether it's on so or waynes or elections interfering, or nevada only when it comes to responding to rushes harmful activities. it will come as soon as we have developed the packages to ensure that we are getting the right targets. and when we do that, we will impose further sanctions with respect to chemical weapons. this comes on the heels of the geneva, somewhere between vladimir putin and joe biden, where they had their 1st face to face meeting since the american president took office. and you know, both sides hale, this talks as a constructive and overall positive. and even though there were, there wasn't any major break through, at least it seemed the 2 leaders we're committed to try to improve the poor state of the bilateral relationship between russia and the us. and which is just days after the summit,
5:04 pm
the senior american official announcing that they will prepare new, that they're going to prepare new sanctions and not just with regard to lexi and valid. he also reaffirm that they will continue to impose several sanctions against companies that are related to the north stream to gas pipeline. so on, you know, that's a stark contrast to how the russian side acted after the summit in geneva, reputed, for instance, he obey defended joe biden, amid allegations he's facing at home, that the us present might not be in his best, physical or mental shape. you know, he's often seen not being able to read properly, probably teleprompter or you know, losing sense of direction. but let me put in after this summit, he basically talked joe biden, up that image that is being drawn by the media kind of low you into a full sense of security. but there's no reason for that whatsoever. because button is a professional, and you've got to be very careful with him in order not to miss anything. he
5:05 pm
doesn't miss anything. i can assure you. so i can tell russian officials, policy maker, they can feel a bit confused after this about face jack solomon, the u. s. the national security advisor. he talks about new anti russian, russian sanctions like, you know, the summit never happened. and it's especially bizarre, especially if you recall what the americans talk before the sun that they were talking about predictable and stable relationship between the us and russia. that's something they are seeking. and what they're doing right now after the summit, it doesn't necessarily falls under the category of, you know, predictability lie, spoke with independent journalist martin summers. he thinks the upcoming sanction showed the extent of the anti russian lobby in the us. well,
5:06 pm
i think it shows disarray only us side. it was always going to be very difficult for boyden to make any kind of concessions, because there's a huge lobby inside the united states, based within the, the sort of security apparatus and the media who are determined to sabotage constructive relations between russia and the west. the faction which you're pushing for a sanctions. they weren't very happy perhaps of the meeting, took place at all. and therefore they have no recovery that the master nations in order to prevent anything positive coming on today and the same. so this is sort of gets a free media. it makes it's just common sense to saw. she talked to each other. so of course we had the meeting last week. but i can't say on terribly surprised to see that the, the reiteration of the whole city, which is now become endemic. presidents put none. biden's spoke for 3 and
5:07 pm
a half hours in geneva on wednesday, and our team was there in switzerland following all the developments. here's a quick recap of how the day unfolded. the the, i have no illusions following the meeting, either old or new. they can't be any illusions at all by and sat in vain. russia. by the way, that was a joke. well here is the main takeaways from the day. the leaders are grades a whole consultations on strategic stability and nuclear arms control. they also
5:08 pm
discussed a possible prisoner exchange and agreed to return their respective ambassadors to their posts, which shopping today. in fact, there was no breakthrough on cyber security, though they agreed to start regular consultations on the issues, not as for stumbling blocks and biden, raise concerns about human rights in the other country. the also failed look me up with any concrete action plan from the nation of ukraine. alice mentioned our team was in geneva with peter and self care fronting or coverage a long couple of weeks i'll hold on. hi, i'll go pause around. of course, the big russia us summit was building. now it's over, don, president biden, president putin, they sat down, they talked really the bottom line is, looks like ties between the 2 countries are better 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 it them say that they'll read ignite diplomatic relations,
5:09 pm
maybe not tomorrow, maybe not to say that, but at some point it's going to happen. we'll see a russian number in washington, us some busted up 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 a person saying that it wasn't again, it wasn't context. the wasn't somebody school remote point that we don't know when a profi, the job wasn't to get one or someone out. it was sent 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, what i missed, and there was no hospitality on the country meeting was very constructive. our views differ on many issues, but i believe both sides have shown
5:10 pm
a willingness to understand each other and to bring up different positions close together. there wasn't any, any strident action taken. or we disagree. i disagree, stated where it was where he disagreed, he stated. but it was not done in a hyperbolic atmosphere. both presidents have now left, 3 watched both aeroplanes 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 is 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 for the soldiers, we sold the police, we saw the boat. so we're going to on the, on the lake, the sunset over the lake, just behind to see your engine, even city looking resplendent. it has been roasting whole office hours long. i always say it's pathetic fantasy absolutely perfect for the heated tools and i
5:11 pm
think they probably walk heated. biden himself gave an unclean that there was some things that he was not willing to negotiate. but it's also, 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 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 be difficult questions that's vladimir putin face, that which joe barton had the good fortune to escape with questions about the opposition. vladimir putin pointed out the protesters and the rest of following the venture capital hill that they faced as much as 25 years in jail for the 5 years in jail, for a political proto the year. but do budget said that there's new comparison to
5:12 pm
because they're criminal. but alexis, the bully, 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 know, americans are comparing what happened the capitol hill to the treatment of elective on and saying there's nothing in common nation. you 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 barger buttons, was they need to be rules of the road. so that as a rule to how both countries should behave in case they come into this agreement
5:13 pm
over something that the dispute your out conflict as resolve them as civilized partners. i would say friends of thought, but they need a framework of how to behave. and for that to happen, groups, countries need to be held equally accountable. it wouldn't do of one country gets away with doing something and the other doesn't feel body said phrase the who's the why the step of live. and he said, how would the united states feel if it was she'd by the rest of the world as meddling for an election? which much of the world sees the united states as do it. but in this rate, that was us. russia is accused of being predictable. by the way. how is russia planning to james? here vladimir putin onto smart. he was going to know that when she told story he's given us. now, when you said 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
5:14 pm
with absolutely unpredictable. what are they doing? it for that's 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 has nothing stable about it and almost nothing left. thank god. in the field, a strategic stability, mr. by taking a completely adequate decisions to prolong the new start treaty for 5 years. if you take the situation with ukraine with crimea, that's where this all sounds right. what they will about endorsing the qu, they talk when the ex president yanna cove each agreed with all the demands of the opposition. he was basically ready to abandon power and declare new election in about 3 months. know the blood hills crew was needed that lead to known consequences southeast of the country than crimea. and you think it's us who predictably, no, i don't think so. what do we do at the end of the day?
5:15 pm
what happened here in geneva? this entire summit was basically a trust building exercise. very few specifics with 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 through a button says we'll find out within the year whether we'll see results from, from all the top, from all the agreement for the criticism the both sides had for each other. but the message is that preliminary, it was successful. i got to spend the day in the villa where those talks were taking place. this was billed as a heavyweight clash of the titans. perhaps we weren't expecting any major results, but certainly flocking much between 2 political, big guns. what they did say,
5:16 pm
both of them was that they talked to not just the president biden, the president, but joe biden demand glad to meet the money 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, jo, by the us president saying though, while it was over record, it's likely that they're going to be embracing one another and swaying side to side anytime soon. i don't think he's looking for a cold war with united states. i don't think it's about, as i said to him, i said your generation of mine are about 10 years apart. this is not a couldn't buy moment, is used to say back in the sixty's and united states like less huggy love each other. but it's clearly not in anybody's interest. your countries are mine for us to be in a situation where we're in a new cold war the russian region of crimea has declared
5:17 pm
a state of emergency amid severe flooding. that's left at least one person dead on a further $43.00 injured now. almost 2000 people as well. have been evacuated from their homes, reporting from crimea. that is where are corresponding eager shit on the face. ah, with me. 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 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, i can feel large, bold as every once in
5:18 pm
a while hitting my feet and legs. now speaking of the st. well, the ground floor of the residential buildings here go on. there are no more and this is obviously hugely distressing to the locals. so this is where the army and the emergency workers have focus 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 about. i have a dog and he started acting 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 breeched its banks. i will call my son and we started to stop the water from entering our home. but nothing could stop it. we could only grab our documents and not fit. we lost everything. you could show a disaster like this has never happened before. i hope no will ever have to go through what we did. it's a tragedy. why was making our authorities to help us to help the people,
5:19 pm
the emergency ministry and the army have had to join the efforts to deal with the aftermath of the flood. we're clearing the drainage system, removing debris from the flood, so the water drains 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 bebbles up all the basement was completely loaded, rescue work is pumped out the water and we scooped out the silt and mont. now we are taken out the furniture to see what we can to 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 the beginning of high to receive and, but obviously that will have to wait. now i'm again done reporting from crimea c.
5:20 pm
still ahead and rti international. the russian capital is tightening its cobit restrictions due to a spike in case number's not story, and more to the print the ah, with me ah
5:21 pm
ah, i use join me every thursday on the alex salmon show and i'll be speaking to guess in the world. the politics sport, business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. in the news. ah, well, let's start the program here in the russian capital again. moscow has set a grim record in new coven infections. registering more than $9000.00 cases in
5:22 pm
a 24 hour period. new restrictions that are being brought in, including the limiting of non emergency medical care for on vaccinated patients. artillio, katrinka can tell us more, 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 originated in india is taken install on the russian capital. according to the mayor of moscow. almost 90 percent of the new infections in the city are the new delta variance and the goal. so 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
5:23 pm
anti bodies to resistance compared to the original we'll hand virus. 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 though and now they are rushing to change that. now here's one of the ground breaking 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 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 19, is especially dangerous. it is impossible to avoid all contact with them or to
5:24 pm
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 campaign in the city to promote booster jabs will also begin in the near future. the moscow's mayor office announced mandatory vaccination for 60 percent of the staff in the service sector, so it looks like the rushing capital is bracing itself for nothing less but a real vaccination boom. when the bladder improvements press secretary dmitri passcode was asked about what the kremlin makes of the new spikes and the measures, here's what the spokesperson replied. don't get even worsening. he tuition is due to 3 things, the absolute nihilism. that is people failure to comply with restrictions, the low vaccination rate and the slide nature of the virus. in the meantime, the existing anti covert measures in the rushing capital have been extended till
5:25 pm
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 banned 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 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. mean, all the region of central italy wants to allow tourists who receive the russian sputnik v cobra shop, to visit the mark a province is urging the government to open up the entire country to such travelers
5:26 pm
to try and save the badly had tourism industry. there we heard from the local counselor who came up with the initiative most everyone knows the effectiveness of scrutiny on neighbor san marino who is vaccinated with nick, but we're not even supposed to allow citizens of san marino to into italy. now, our region tends to open up to continue 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, tourists, even if the a vaccinated cannot come to italy. and this is called tremendous economic loss because it's really attract the loss of russian tourists each year. what comes a week after the european parliament gave final approval to the new digital certificate scheme for cove at 1900. it includes data on p. c. r, test antibodies and vaccination, but only for shots approved by the european medicines agency. so far, the regulator has approved for vaccines, russian,
5:27 pm
chinese or indian jobs. they're not among them. g. komarovsky, again, sees it's become a highly politicized issue. much you should know, in my opinion, this decision is caused by 2 political reasons and russia phobia. these are not medical reasons because we all know student works and therefore it is probably a continuation of european union's policy towards the russian federation. i have absolutely no fear that we are protecting the interests of mar, k, d. you too often protects impress the conflict with the interests european citizens . we, europeans, citizens, but we are primarily residents of them are k. and so we serve our interests, especially in such absurd situations. like the one we're talking about england flocked on has been extended by 4 weeks beyond the june 21st target dates after a surgeon case number's, the british prime minister has defended the move saying,
5:28 pm
opening up know would cost lines 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 the that period of, by, by july, the 19th, we do think that we would have bill top a very considerable wall of immunity around the whole of the population. i mean, well until he locked on protesters really here, dunning street in london on monday, jumping shame on you on the monday freedom, here's what some people in the british capital told us about development. i was going to do that bit say in those 6 months from one to be really positive and gets backseat back later. and then to be told that you and them for weeks of things not being know being i've been it is it is very frustrating. it
5:29 pm
to, i like to come out with plenty of pen is now social distance ending going been taken. 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. and so no one knew hired could be there are lots of people with businesses and things like that. and really struggle and actually, especially in the country just and that is a rough, more great programs get going in moment. so stay close for life for moscow. this is 247 r t internet. so
5:30 pm
what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy going from station let it be an arms race is often very dramatic developments. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical time time to sit down and talk this is your media a reflection of reality? the in a world transformed what will make you feel safe for tyson lation community? are you going the right way or are you being that somewhere direct
5:31 pm
what is true, what is faith in.
