4:04 am
temporary shelter place for the people for the most vulnerable the warehouse is located 500 meters from the border. it was decided to quickly clear some space there so that people won't have to sleep rough for a 2nd night. in the space of 2 hours, goods were moved to one end of the warehouse. this liberated about 40 percent of the space. additionally, medical teams are on their way to the site. they will check temperatures and move those with a high temperature to a separate area. this what you're saying all around me is a logistics center next to the border. it normally normal life, it was used before. the border checkpoint was closed due to migrant crisis. it was used to sort out cargo goods, you know, that sort of stuff. now the bill of russian government has organized, you know, draw sleeping. matt here that have been provided by the are better russian side or are, you know, they have a roof over their heads. there's no wind,
4:05 am
it is much warmer here inside. and that for the 1st time here, i can actually see what these people are wearing under their overcoats. because previously, every single day they would put as much things as much clothes on, on them as possible, as many well, you know, overcoats and such. so you can see this is, well, this is, it can be compared to the conditions that they had to survive. and i just, yesterday, his a new batch of bi grants that you can see arriving to the center to basically the main purpose of this place is to provide a proper shelter to the most vulnerable. you know, so that the polls do not shine blinding spa slice in your, in your face as you're trying to go to sleep and so on. you know, no wind, you know, if it rains these people are now safety. and then so what will happen next to the authorities, the bella, russian authorities will go on and try to establish the identity of every single person here. because some of them don't even have their documents on them and well
4:06 am
then they will be flown. hopefully they will be able to fly back home, back to we're back to wherever they came from. because this is their main purpose. they came forward and said, we want to go home. we don't wanna, you know, cross into europe anymore. we've given up on this idea, we want to go home, and so people, they will be trying to, you know, the authorities, they will be identifying these people and, well, hopefully facilitating their return earlier the e u foreign policy chief, joseph burrell, and also new strategic campus plan giving e u palace the chance to react quickly, including in partnership with nato, to what it deems a threat. the west has been accusing belarus of deliberately pushing migrants from the middle east and to poland. it's a claim minsk denies. i mean time, both america and the eel, preparing brand new sanctions, will italy and france are both questioning poland 0 tolerance policy on migrants trying to enter the e. u via belarus. a paris is refusing to fund
4:07 am
a new wall. warsaw wants to build along the frontier, although the european council chief has given us the greenlight. this little, this is possible. this or the truant legal framework at the upper level, 2 fives, interest, torture history, but not just 40 hamilton. i am in favor of a year of which protects his borders, but not a europe which bristles with barbed wire or covers itself with walls would be this contract and to quanto. what is happening in several places on the borders of the union is disconcerting. the gap between the great principles proclaimed and the neglect of the hunger and cold to which human beings are exposed at the borders of the union is surprising. cheapy. the polish water is one of several e u migration hotspots last weekend alone. more than 600 refugees arrived on italy shores off the crossing from north africa and as at ease at charlotte dubious, he now explains their being treated very differently to those arriving through
4:08 am
belarus. what a difference a route makes. in the last few days, hundreds of migrants crossing the mediterranean sea flimsy fishing boats found themselves rescued and brought to you repeat land. since the start of this year, more than $50000.00 migrants have used that c route reach italy, that's an 85 percent increase compared to the same period last year and almost 500 percent more compared to 2 years ago by landing on europe's mediterranean coast, migrants find themselves greeted by agencies there to lend a helping hand fly just under 2000 kilometers to another e u country. and the reception couldn't be more different around 3000 migrants, desperately trying to survive in no man's land is winter sets in n g o z and agencies can't even get full access. while the past to freedom is
4:09 am
blocked by fear, cast by water, cannons by barbed wire, in a bid to shore up the eastern european borders. poland is going to construct a war, a war that would be partly paid for by the european union. and he's designed to stop people from crossing into the block where they can then make claims for asylum . but as this wall has been given, the green light, the use top court has just issued this ruling. the courts of justice finds that hungry has failed to fulfill its obligations by allowing an application for international protection to be rejected as inadmissible. on the grounds of the applicant arrived on his territory by a state in which that person was not exposed to persecution or risk of serious harm, or in which a sufficient degree of protection is guaranteed. that judgment laws hungry in the court ice has restricted the right of asylum seekers yet doesn't to well financed
4:10 am
by the eve. do exactly that. if the european union is full of contradictions, so massive immigration is right. this is that the good allison brussels has been telling all the member states that they should greet all these other immigrants coming from the all over the world. they said co toes and they went to some political wars with hungary, with serena with poland because they would refuse of quotas. and so the region union was this message, integration to the nova, sudden in one specific country, it is okay to build the wall. and that's all it only because we're speaking about belarus and which is an ally of russia. so this shows this bit that double standards that the european union is opposing to shows that the european union couldn't care less about immigration, and that it's using this tremendous, depending on the situation around a 115000 in legal border crossings. have been made this year at the e use external borders. the majority of still coming from the main routes that have
4:11 am
been established now over many years. yet while countries like italy and hungry, which have been at the coal face of this problem for so many years now, a lot she left to deal with it on their own. poland enjoyed the immediate backing of brussels, which is rally duran with both moral political and now financial support. and while it's easy to say that this is pacing one mistake against another, this is much, much more than that. this is double standards at the highest level, se sum. and that level goes all the way to brussels. charlotte, even sky r t, paris, another country that's dealing with a new influx of migrants is that over iran, as we understand, people have been fleeing that from neighboring afghanistan ever since the taliban to control. but international organizations of actually cut refugee a to terran, it's something that you and has come out and condemned. now non profit organization,
4:12 am
norwegian refugee council, says 4 to 5000 people have been crossing from afghanistan into iran daily. since the taliban take over, it states that amounts to about 300000 refugees on top of the large number of displaced people already in the country. of the group recently visited various migrant comes that a monitor, the conditions that people are living in. and a layla, my thought was among the delegation. she says iran is an urgent need of international help. with al, i was there. we spoke to several families who have been on the ground for a very long time in iran. and they all say that every family member, they speak with back in afghanistan and cobble and elsewhere in the country. all tell them the same thing that they're on the way to the border. they're trying to find a way out there trying to get into iran because it's become absolutely hopeless to live in afghanistan in much june, to be economic collapse in the country. and those families, me spoke to say that,
4:13 am
you know, they have so little already to share among so many. and they worry that unless the international community thousands give more supporting a 2 neighboring countries of, of cow stand. there will simply not be enough to just court everyone with their basic needs. this is an a context where iran itself has economic challenges as a result of sanctions and, and co. 19 general. there has not been adequate attention to the situation in the neighboring countries of afghan has done. it is always the neighboring countries that shoulder, that major responsibility when there's a massive for a g flown. it's remarkable that iran is able to absorb 40025000 refugees coming from it's gone on every day. and yet europe is not able to deal with the 4000 or a few 1000 refugees at the polish border. but it's also equally unfortunate and outrageous that the beller is, authorities are using refugees as a tactic to win an international geopolitical game. all right, about halfway through the program here, one off the international and still ahead for you. activists in can say,
4:14 am
assisted suicide is becoming far too commonplace with physically healthy patients even being encouraged to take their own lives. it's hard to believe that's in the mix of all stories. in the 2nd half of the program, we return in seconds. ah, oh, driven by drill shaped banks, concur. some of those with dares sinks, we dare to ask ah
4:15 am
ah ah quarter past here in moscow, germany is considering new coven restrictions for the un vaccinated are the rules would apply to 14000000 adults ultimately mirroring a very controversial system now in place in austria. but with berlin preparing for
4:16 am
a power transition, opinions are split as to how to proceed. he's all correspondent, peter owner, alarm bells ringing in germany. the country's covert numbers. of course, the grave concerns so much in fact that those that are looking to form the next government in germany. well, they say more restrictions on needed either to in a small is a. so 1st of all, the situation we're in is dramatic and therefore consistent measures the urgently needed within the framework of the current legal situation. but also beyond that from december about we're currently discussing the rules that will apply over the winter from december onwards. within this week has seen a continuation of high coven infection numbers across germany, while the 7 day average. well, that has reached never before seen levels. from monday this week, berlin saw new restrictions come into play coal. the 2 g approach which bob hos
4:17 am
that our unvaccinated o'connell show that they have recovered from covert from restaurants, theaters, gyms and nightclubs defenders at 1st cletus. i'm a little bit critical of it. i'm actually here for my 3rd vaccine short, but i think it will deepen the divisions in society as we'll say august. i think it's a good idea. i'm vaccinated and i'd feel much safer if only other vaccinated people were allowed in doors. i have some money to even when someone is vaccinated, they can still get infected with this virus and get sick. so i don't really know if it makes sense at all that will be seen and i'm with her taking into account the rising numbers. i think it's reasonable, but i can also understand people who are not vaccinated, but we're in the middle of a pandemic. i think everybody needs to make a sacrifice for the greater good of society in bavaria, which is one of the hardest hit areas by the 4th wave. the state leader market zone is wanting. things could get very bought. if 10 is the apocalypse, where it 9,
4:18 am
there is a very simple way to solve the problem and that is vaccination. the basses where germany is faltering vaccination rates have plotted at around 67 percent. and protest is against covert restrictions. a still vocal any among those looking to lead the next governments of germany, there is a mind that there has to be a discussion on mandatory vaccination, the people in certain professions like healthcare. i think it is right that we have now started to discussion about whether this should be done in italy. we're vaccine uptake is currently 10 percent higher than germany. they're seeing less cases in this 4th wave in austria, which is 5 percent lower than germany. they've just brought in the new lockdown for the vaccinated. while the austrian chancellor insists this is necessary. it still
4:19 am
draws pushback from the public as boone this, again, this is our task as a federal government is to protect the people of austria and that is what we are doing. i must stress, we are not taking this step of the light heart, but unfortunately it is necessary. he's an alternate id. i like it well against the current government, which is leading us into disaster plate. in essence, economic cas cleanings keys on the overall i find the whole development extremely alarming. there are lines outside of this vaccination center here in berlin is the feeling is they sooner rather than later, germany will follow austria's lead and imposed national restrictions on post that of not being jobs. not combs, as politicians and health officials are concerned that on checked this 4th wave of cove, it could be the worst yet. peter, all of a asi, fell in full warren lee enough of vaccines apparently don't make the problem go
4:20 am
away. the british territory of gibraltar has the highest cove at an auction. inoculation rate in the entire world is in fact, given enough shots to immunize as elation, one and a half times over. however, infection rates are rising exponentially, and all public christmas celebrations have now been cancelled. this is an article very much worth reading up on at r t dot com. for now on the program, the pentagon is at loggerheads with the oklahoma national guard. over mandatory vaccinations is threatening disciplinary action if guardsman skipped their cobit shots. it's after that commander openly flouted the order. it is a lawful order for national guardsmen to receive the cove at vaccine. it is a lawful order refusing to do that. absent of an approved exemption puts them in the same potential as active duty members who refused the vaccine. in mid september, us defense secretary lloyd austin at downs to all uniform personnel would have to
4:21 am
get vaccinated against coven. however, the newly appointed commander of oklahoma's national guard said he would turn a blind eye to noncompliance among his troops. i hear by order that no oklahoma guardsmen be required to take the cove at 19 vaccine. notwithstanding any other federal requirement. additionally, no negative administration or legal action will be taken against guardsman, who refused the vaccine law. spite cohen who was the libertarian vice presidential candidate in 2020, he says the measures only widen the rift between states and the federal government . think we're seeing the beginnings of an increasing stand off between the biden administration and state governments. whether you're talking about the governments themselves or the state national guards, or even some of the city governments, not just on this, but on quite a few things. we're seeing an increasing fighting between different levels of government, between the by administration, largely on political lines between republicans and democrats,
4:22 am
but also on disagreements over how to move forward. when it comes to coven, it's likely to spread to other states, especially now with the us, with the federal courts are holding up. one of the vaccine mandates and many of state governments already suing the by the administration. we're seeing in some police departments as many as 40 percent of police and other 1st responders are refusing to take the vaccine. i suspect the numbers are lower among the troops, but it's probably not that much lower. and these are the kinds of things you know, that the, by the ministration needs to think about when they're deciding to try to shove these vaccines down the throats of people who don't want them. anti euthanasia activists and canada have voiced alarm over a surge and medically assisted deaths saying that practice has become normalized. euthanasia became legal in canada and 2016 in that he had more than a 1000 people, underwent assisted suicide. that's according to health canada. the figure reached
4:23 am
7500 last year and according to one psychiatrist, people that are asking for the procedure even when they are physically healthy. a few days ago, a 30 year old patient with very treatable, mental illness asked me to and her life. her distraught parents came to the appointment with her because they were afraid that i might support her request and that they would be helpless to do anything about it is heretic. they have to worry that by going to psychiatry just the daughter might be killed by the very psychiatrist. back in 2016, the canadian government legalized euthanasia. for adults who are terminally ill, the rules will relax further and 2021. and now people who have diseases but could easily live many more years can quite easily undergo assisted suicide. and from 2023 canadians who is suffering is cause only by mental illness will also be allowed to opt for euthanasia. and we discussed the whole story with the alex jordan berg, executive director of the euthanasia prevention coalition. but also with take out
4:24 am
an author and charity founder. see this, this statistics are quite shocking, but my position a day fail. there is very, very important. there is people individually want to choose and their life. and if people want to choose to and live their life to the last moment, that's an individual choice to prom with your comments though, is that you're talking from a theoretical point of view than rather than a human point of view. what actually happens that on your, in canada we're euthanasia, is becoming very commonplace. a people with disabilities often react by saying, hey, in the culture we live in, we feel already denigrated. we feel like our lives are less value. and now you're telling us that maybe it's better off that we be dead. and this is what you're getting. a lot of pressure on, you know, and i get stories all the time. i get calls all the time for people who are feeling pressured for every person you feel under pressure to die because they're burden on the family of the health system and the haven't gotten money in the family is going
4:25 am
to go in the vet for it. there's a person out there who wants to know who actually wants to die because they want to and i suffering. and i dad sort from a theoretical point of view. i had locked it isn't very radical point of view because he's trying him not answer the question why, why is society allowing this type of suffering the death is preferable to care. this is, this is the essential question that comes down to this because what you're actually saying is we changed our law to allow doctors and nurses to do homicide because that's what it is. we're talking about euthanasia, which is done by lethal injection by somebody else. and they're approving it and then they're doing it. so you're talking about actually a type of a homicide. and is it ever a good idea and the culture to allow so and to have the right and law to kill me. and we have a choice individual choice as k. what we should be dealing with is the should be strength protocols in place. so no nurse has to explain to someone in the final phase of m and day, why they should speed up the process of that death. i'm not,
4:26 am
sorry, is one of the many that are causing a lot of heated debate right now to the, takes away at r t dot com for the meantime though that wraps up your news costs for this hour. we are back soon. in fact, in about 32 minutes with more of your wednesday headlines, hopa, you can join us that ah, ah, new york, it's really what america's about ah . when our mayor took our vase, he was elected because of his campaign on our city, being a tale of 2 cities, the haves and i have not. and those who have not are usually the ones who are end up being buried on hard i. the city has always wanted to forget about. so he wanted to forget about the people who were buried there. just wanted to forget
4:27 am
about the fact that there is a potter's field that there was a place where difficult stories are hidden. the fact that we're using inmates to maintain this active burial site, where 1000000 souls are buried, where so much of new york city history is buried, is documents of the inequality that has existed in the city for centuries. ah, ah for empowering ourselves to be more efficient quicker with our transactions. but with that comes a trade off every device p as a potential entry point for security attack. any machine can be it's an extension of traditional time. the defenders have always been one step
4:28 am
behind the attackers. a one comes up a matter of if it happens, it's a matter of went ah, i ah i'm as soon as any watching going underground coming over the show. we speak to the president of palau, a cop 26 island nation in danger of paying the ultimate price for inviting the u. s . military to build base is that, that alone, the impact of nato nation,
4:29 am
military fossil fuel emissions contributing to the climate emergency. and we talk to the award winning pioneer behind m r n a vaccines, the, the saving millions around the world as the world health organization wants europe . it is yet again, the epicenter of the global corona virus pandemic. all this a more coming up in today's going underground, but 1st after she jin paying and jo biden's monday night virtual call for the taunt . one nation court between them is a paradise island in the pacific. existentially threatened by the climate emergency, the president of the republic of palazzo angle as whips junior, joins me now from that bank allow, after claiming that wrong decisions at cop 26 in glasgow could equate to bombing the country. mister president, thanks so much for joining us. from palau, so you might as well bomb us is what you said at cop 26 in glasgow. you believe it's $2.00 centigrade or $1.00 centigrade? what? what is the outcome from godaddy 6, according to you?
4:30 am
well, at the end, which is it is disappointing that we're still above 1.5. you know, to save the islands to save the culture, to save the language. we need to be below $1.00. and i say that because we live the reality. we see the tides every day on their rising, they're over, run our docs, they're into our homes. they're into our taurus ones where people grow their food. so we see the threat from the high temperatures destroying our coal reefs at the same time killing our jelly, fish, which are a private attraction for below and, and we also see the fish now they produce by 2100 on the current track. when lose 40 percent of our for fish population. so these are just part of what we are.
