7:00 am
ah, ready for action? russia fills one section of the nord stream to pipe blind with natural gas and awaits that final green light from regulators to start supplying europe. so ahead in the program this our tortured angela for 17 years without trial. we explore the case of pakistani national, who still in guantanamo despite being cleared for release. after it emerged he'd been mistaken. fritz heard wrist and also ahead extreme pressure, flaming, terrible in south russia. welcome back. that 1st ever, the space and the film crew. the new pioneers of orbital cinema speak to r t and describe their fiery this sent back to her. did you thought everyone felt
7:01 am
that you can not experience something like that unless you fly into space and the feeling was around the descent unforgettable? because when to perish, it opened the capitals, gone so quickly, and we felt all these busy with just after 2 in the afternoon here in moscow this monday, october, the 18th, i'm, you know, neil and this is the news. our on our russia is taking a step forward and readying the nord stream to pipeline to pump natural gas to millions of european homes. the 1st of 2 sections, in fact, has now been filled to the required pressure. the operator added work is underway to fill the rest of the network, which links russia to germany via the baltic sea. the pipeline not only needs final approval from european regulators will the need for
7:02 am
gas has never been greater with prices recently passing all time records in europe . on the e, you, labor commissioner is warning the situation could cause a rise in energy poverty over the winter as household struggle to pay their bills. but despite the energy crunch there still some resistance to the new pipeline with parts of the media accusing russia of deliberately driving up cost that's been debunked by the leadership, both russia and germany, russia's ambassador to the u. k. so let us figure indeed, to stress that moscow is not withholding supplies, certainly would not miss whole it for political reasons. but guess pro and this isn't from station of course, while russia maintains that it's definitely not behind the increases in price in energy that we've seen here in europe. that hasn't stopped very different story
7:03 am
being puts across in the european media as well as media elsewhere. in fact, the very well respected news magazine focus has on their front cover of the latest edition. let me just underneath the headline, the cold will in this sense in german bio. that means not the cold war within the latter part of the 20th century. that means the cold war is in like freezing. however, the and the headline there, the soap headline says blood and be turns off the tops and drives up the price in germany. it's very similar message that we've seen across the media in europe. if we go over to the netherlands, similar headlines that we're seeing there also over german publications here, going with very, very similar message in belgium. what we're hearing is that russia has the chance to make or has the possibility to make europe shiver this winter while in austria, they're suggesting that russia is using gas in order to put pressure on europe.
7:04 am
what's really interesting though, is what we're seeing in the media is a very different message to what's coming out from your opinion. leaders in the commissioner for energy. that's country simpson. she said just the beginning of this month, that while there was no additional gas coming from russian supply is to meet the increased demand from europe. that those same russian supply is we're meeting the very letter of all of the contracts that they signed with european countries. and it's a similar message that we've heard from german chancellor angle america as well as this gift kind to my knowledge. there are known as russia has said, we will deliver it to you, especially not with regard to the pipeline in ukraine. russia can only deliver gas on the basis of contractual obligations. and not just only like that, that would, well, that message doesn't seem to have been getting through to the u. s. media, certainly not. when you look at the interview they did with russian president vladimir just last week. has russia been using energy as a weapon?
7:05 am
russia is not using any weapon. if you've been paying attention, as for the economy, where are we using weapons and what conflicts are we taking part and for the economy? this is not something we tend to use. this is what i call a politically motivated talk. at the end of the day, i guess the question is, how can you expect europe to believe your reliable energy partner when you're not supplying that energy via the pipeline? you said that you're not supplying gas through pipelines to europe, but actually you're mistaken. you are mistaken. and all of those who feed on the information they receive, we are actually increasing our supply to europe. for the reality is there's a whole multitude of reasons for why demand for gas in europe is currently so high . and why supply use of gas and reserves of gas also low. so when you've got that high demand and you've got best, well, low availability, you get high prices, and that's what we're seeing at the moment we have heard from vladimir putin in the recent past. bo, saying that once russia's own reserves of gas have been replenished,
7:06 am
that we may wells, the russian supply is supplying more gas to europe. hundreds of leading experts and politicians from around the world have descended on the russian black sea resorts of sultry to wrestle with the most pressing global issues of the day, chief among them, the ship to world of 1st caused by the pandemic. now the val di discussion club was find it in 2004. it's grown into an international respected platform to sure and the beta ideas. the primary focus being economic can geo political want. and usually rushes present. the mere potent mix on appearance we awake to see if that happens this year. and one of this years moderators is alexander rock. alexander is a senior research fellow at the belt trends, international politics institute, as well as the scientific director of the germany, russia for him on join,
7:07 am
just life. thank you for your time today, alexander a. so we have germany on essentially the e you about to enter the post merkel era. do you think it's going to become any easier or more difficult to find common ground with russia on issues such as energy? i think that the new government will or might have a very pragmatic view. russia because says the new chancellor, probably new chancellor. mr. charles is a close friend and 8 former 8 of gab shredder. and he will of course, do everything to promote relations with russia. he is interested in the comic corporation and i think this will be materialized in the couple of new projects. i hope that that will continue at least the most important projects. but there are, of course, the greens and the leadership which may create certain problems because there are
7:08 am
the logical against up against pipelines and against cooperation. the energy field was russia. yeah. how significant other say do you think they'll have well, it depends how the government will will be consistent of 3 parties. you have to know this. the chancellor has of course, the biggest power in the, in the, in the government. but the 2 other parties lack the greens will have under control keen situations like the minister of foreign affairs or the ministry of energy and climate change. so we may expect some arrive in the relations with russia. i hope it will be not too strong, too heavy, but the green, so always said that they want to put to conduct a foreign policy, which is clearly directed to protect, so called human rights and liberal values in all kinds of countries all over the world will of course, at the beginning was to come up with
7:09 am
a certain agenda which might be confrontational towards russia just to on the europe wide energy crisis going on at the moment. and under, do you expect what is happening to give a fill up to the nord stream to pipeline is not going to to really help issues get along here and get it moving? of course, it will because every new infrastructural project like to not seem to will help to provide more energy, more gas to europe and europe. as you just said, in your, your 1st story is very dependent, still dependent on the guest deliveries from russia, from our region, from other parts of the world. and russia has built this infrastructure to help her europe, to secure the energy flows through europe. but again, there is this political logical problem, the brussel commission of the you and of course, party like the greens they are
7:10 am
a lot of forces in the european union of other countries, especially in the east europe. even countries are against to close corporation with russia out of political reasons, not of commercial reasons. the did seem to be this relentless push towards green policies and with no stream to if that is implemented on it gets the, the full go ahead in europe. might it slow down those policies that depends to be seen, but germany wants to become the, the model for green policy, for a building, a green modernized economy. and it's very stubborn in that. and you will see that the new government in germany will proclaim that the transfer to renewable energy sources will continue and will come maybe earlier, expect it, maybe in 1015 years, not in 20 years. it depends to be seen whether this will tapia,
7:11 am
view or tolkien policy might be materialized or valuable come to the end. but i expect that the germany will stick to its agenda to its program because some, some of so many things are politically connected. was a strategy and with this green line, in terms of german politics, you touched on the social democrats most likely to be the, the biggest power in the state. how does that affect the future now of policy in germany? will there be a big change with the past? i don't think that there will be a big change in the past. but the government, that by the social democrats, will of course be more left oriented than the previous government under medical, which was right centuries. but the green agenda will, as far as we understand from the programs from the project which are being
7:12 am
discussed, will dominate agenda again. i repeat myself, it's remains to be seen whether the hulu will materialize in something concrete or will remain o t o p. and to ask you the big picture question. no, not an easy answer. i know, but the pandemic, softer shocks are high on the di, discussion clubs, agenda. what would you say has been cove, its biggest impact on international politics? i would say that the corporate crisis as medical crisis as cause which concerns the health of people, maybe over by the end of this year. let's hope it because a lot of people are vaccinated and exceeds okay, their functioning and they have producing already positive results. the problem will be in the aftermath, the destroyed the economic structure of many countries and the social ethics of, of the pen to me with which we have to live and through which we will suffer. i
7:13 am
think more than a year from now. so of the consequences of this plan to me still not over the may even deepen in the future. and the politicians. i see that you are and we will discuss them about that globe at length. have not the lights, concepts to fight the social and economic consequences and problems which we will face in the, in the, in the near future will do indeed enjoy the debate the discussion done in so we've enjoyed having you on the program. alexander, our senior research fellow at the belt trends, international politics institute on the scientific director of the germany, russia for now after being tortured and held captive for 17 years at pakistani national has finally been cleared for release from american guantanamo bay prison. that may sound on the outside like
7:14 am
good news for him, but being there doesn't actually mean he walks free. that is all happening despite washington admitted he should never have been detained in the 1st place. our senior correspondent, murat gas div can tell us why. mohammed rabbani is one of one tottenham, obeys, longest serving inmates 17 years and one month he has been locked up in get mo, by all accounts, innocent, never charged with any terror related offenses. never bore to trial. once a taxi driver, his crime was that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. on september, the 10th 2000 t, pakistani authorities arrested 2 individuals believe to be hassan, go and his driver outside the apartment complex by september, the 11th 2002, it was determined that an individual named mohammed, ark mad, glamour, bonnie or sinners, abu bader, and his driver were arrested and not hassan go. the awful irony here is that the
7:15 am
real hus on gold bin laden's messengers, he's known who rabbani was mistaken for was captured and handed over to the c i a in 2004. he was later released in 2007 went back to his old ways and was killed in a drone strike. and still mohammed rabbi the is serving someone else's time in guantanamo the years and the president came and went. they admitted that the arrest was a case of mistaken identity, and yet he is still there. guantanamo is all about lies, hypocrisy and broken promises. they promised me that they might let me out for a review of my detention, but i came to nothing. you can almost track his tragedy in released cia and pentagon documents. he was initially tortured at the sole pit and atoria cia jail
7:16 am
in afghanistan, where terrible things were done to inmates to extract confessions, raw body was allegedly identified as the man mentioned in several cia torture memos who was hung by his wrists in arm chains. and who attempted to amputate his own hands to stop the pain being cleared for release may be a personal victory for him. but in practice, in bond on him obey. that doesn't mean anything. one of my clients comes hotel california at me. you can check out, but it can never leave for men are soother, though they were cleared over 10 years ago. but at least we're now going to be arguing about when he should go home, rather than whether what little joy and hope there is to be had. this is knowing that he has a son waiting for him. a son who was born after his arrest and about whom he only found out when the boy was 6 years old. just imagine life would be like for your
7:17 am
family without your father. just imagine what it would be like if your father was at guantanamo, how could they ruin 20 years of someone's life? there is no way of knowing when the e for a body will be released and what he will make of a world of a life that he was deprived of by mistake. the scars from torture, the, the trauma from long years of isolation, the stigma of being a guantanamo inmates will always stay with her body as will memories of the war and terra's churning merciless military bureaucratic machine that he went upon. realizing its mistake, took years to correct it and moving the program all. now co id numbers continue to cause concern in moscow with reportedly almost a 1000 debts in the past 24 hours. a correspondent, danny armstrong joins us live now with the story. hi,
7:18 am
danny. it was generally accepted that numbers would rise as we approach the winter, but i think the, the scale of debts the cases. how surprised many tell us we're yeah, of course. i mean, it seems like one grim records, the shattered or set after another 34325 cases. now that's the new daily record, the highest since the virus emerge that follows on some figures over the weekend of a daily death rate of 1002, that figures round about 998. now we'll still around that 1000 mark. and moscow of course, is the worst hit the capital, the most popular city in russia. they've had now for the past 5 days over $6000.00 cases, plus 5 days in a row. that is. but despite that, we're not expecting any luck downs. the kremlin has urged the population to get vaccinated about about 31 percent of the population. that's 45300000 russians are
7:19 am
vaccinated. the trembling would like to get to be higher. vladimir putin has said to region a low make is it is your decision. it is your responsibility to support the movement to get the facts, to get the population vaccinated. but despite that, must be on in a said, there's not gonna be any lockdown we saw of course and run about new year time. and that could be a return to q r code. that would be the q r codes that allow for entry into restaurants and bars. and for despite this, by those rising figures, that won't be any real severe measures taken at the russian health ministry has said the only a fraction of those who have died. of course, those figures around a run about a $1002.00 according to figures released on saturday. we're vaccinated, of course, on the lining and the importance of vaccination. they meet you. pasco, of the spokesperson for the kremlin,
7:20 am
has said everything. all the facilities needed for people to go out and get vaccinated. that has been 30 new cobit vaccination express point, set up around moscow for people to go and get their to nations. so pretty much the, the, the way out of this and the way to stem the flow of cobra cases is very much inoculation rather than locked down. thanks very much for taking us throughout. ortiz spending armstrong day today. we continue our special coverage of a new lunmark in cinema and speaks trouble on sunday morning rushing. crude returned to earth after the world's 1st film shoot in or been amazing stuff really? actress julia purse old director clim ship panko spent 12 days on the international space station, making seasons for their extra terrestrial drama. the the
7:21 am
and as the successfully touched down our corresponding contents, ross cough got the chance to witness the historic landing in because extent ah, if you, our lab before we can find out what they have already on back there. national say that they already stuff where guys heading back out a dad why doors the landing spot know me, we know the approximate landing location in berry. so now we're gonna lie around until we can actually see that as standing module and wait until it touches down with
7:22 am
well, as you can see, the capital is on the ground. the crew is still inside, but we've been told that they're feeling. all right, somebody is speaking with the crew right now. so history has been made a russian professional to makers and just went into space, but also safely return to earth. with footage for their 1st ever feature movie that has sort of shaken in actual space. the whole crew are treated like heroes. with all this is film director, clint shipping, co, safe and sound. just came from the space. the international space station is 400 kilometers above the earth surface and a returning spacecraft usually covers the distance in 3 hours. for the most part
7:23 am
it's freefall and the speed can reach 120 meters per 2nd. extreme acceleration baird, with a gravity taking in which the crew under enormous physical rest. nonetheless, she benco's seemed in high spirits. and those are sure said, those are good. were soon wiggling, although olga bullock though, wished it out. so could you be the glue who, who applause, marguerite, she's our can on one of the closure. my daughter, her mom excuse knows where she is by the only in willis, doro, a moon, your garcia grew, monsieur, for i owe more carefully so that with him, you thorn with the blue showing you for choose tool should you should choose to initial the caller and you get which when you can use with ice cream, got it. of course most. why don't i, sheena bull assumption like us me, jessica chavez early was because i showed him as anyone in particular that was actress. he le brazil has just received flowers. both you let be sealed and
7:24 am
cosmonaut aleck ivy ski had to act even before the laughter capsule. the landing location turned into a film set for one of the closing scenes of the movie about a doctor who sent into orbit to perform surgery after that very sealed, who plays the lead role left her autograph on the capsule that not only brought her back home to date, but also sent her acting career sky work from now on. she is the 1st actress filmed in space in oklahoma that she, she got. i saw a glow schedules that i would like any family going on with my mom and at them we're talking with them. and now the renowned russian actor of lead miramar scott, who played a commander greeting the crew on the ground, sat the movie is a big leap forward for the world's film industry. brianna my about my little macros, the e voice theme, cut out on hightail, taurus, nature coarseness, in order to give his ill or sierra know young as low young additional nischelle because then which at austin we deal with smugly at the still to 3rd for sure. but
7:25 am
minimal corrosion, some we sure of never, i'm not going to do so, but i was calling it bulge. it me, i'm actually glad 0. it is like a buddhist. wish your religion no much. there's digit i'm city educator yet. is miram? yes. this kim store. i better go to 0 am, is that old? miss thorne? yachts nelly mistrusted the wet spots out of the plan. you don't look at them until yara are, let's get a closer look at the capsule. just look how actually burnt it is right here. because when the capsule hurdles through earth's atmosphere at a temperature outside riches, up to 2000 degrees celsius and it feels like you are inside a fireball, the mission is also a large stride forward for the russian space program which made space travel possible for 2 non cosmetic, after just 4 months of training and it's more than space tourism, it's about professionals from different areas and not just career cosmo now's been able to go into space and do their job, meet acting or something else. so as the had of rushes space agency to pay the bill
7:26 am
multiple got to do both beside the scope of them, but that it was not to be to get the coverage from lowest denise, but other bit slow village up. but i am but a good plan, but i'm some you all a cup, but i am pulling up the input but that it was group settings and you need us to run them for the got the upper. ah, there is a lot of food for thought in the months to come about that, but for now everyone here including us, is just extremely excited to witness something that will definitely go down in history as an erotic of reporting from doesn't stand yet another interesting element of all this before heading the space, the filmmakers had just 4 months of pre flight training compared to the minimum of 2 years for a customer, not but personnel to on shipping, co managed to get through it, passing their medical and flu fitness, se exams with flying colors really arty caught up with the crew on their flight.
7:27 am
back to moscow was got capitalism in. yep. of semi linux man after what was more difficult for you to learn the counseling with to non professional, cosmo. more of the, of course it was different because they would not professionals, but they would train very well and without them it would have been hard to land properly. they participated in the flight helped me and i'm very grateful for those less. i'm always sound. susan, did you the professional cosmos, have to baby see the film crew of the station? you know, honestly i was expecting worse, but they adapted to work on the station very quickly and there were no issues with them. but they took all our advice on board and acted on that quickly. we felt comfortable working with again using you as you look up any my, my body doesn't really understand what's happening in the opposite of weightlessness always. and then when you and 0 gravity, you feel like a feather, but, but you're on the ground. everything is very heavy. you had is heavy. your arms legs
7:28 am
. well, i feel a little dizzy. we're not actually allowed to turn our has right now. of course we have already turned had it, but nevertheless we're not supposed to actually be constant up quickly and we can't work very well. yes, it is. good. the, the descent was unforgettable. because when the parachute opened, the capitol spawn so quickly and felt all these g for say, we've all experienced your forces before, but that was a little different. it's one thing to feel it in a simulator, but another to experience it in real life. when you understand what's happening to you, and you look out of the window and see how the capital you're flying to earth in is burning. we have very experienced specialists in the russian space industry. there are some nuances, of course, and there are some areas i would like to be better, but i hope this project will attract money and attention and even more respect, as was interest from yon talented people in this field, which is nice the trash and cinema, which many people say is
7:29 am
a little backward managed to achieve this feat. i think it could only have been done as we did it. when everything is done by hand, when you have to be both a prop maker and costume designer, so when there is nothing you can do another's, where we leave and use run up. for now, i'll keep the updates coming out the top of the hour after some more great programs beginning in movements with that's been decades since the fall of spain's fascist regime. but old wound still haven't tailed, your interest in going into them. because on the phone with nickel fee to market people to me. so i will said cutting me in the parentheses. me notice that
7:30 am
i'm interested, i think with thousands of newborn babies. what toned from their mothers been given away and forced adoption late bought about a used ford fiesta in my old role, but it is a fairly well meant it to this day mothers still search for grown children, while adults look in hope for their birth parents. a with would they say, why do you burned down the community? why do you find out your own neighborhood? it's not or we don't own anything.
