ah, we dare to ask in ah, turning off the top spell a ruse temporarily shots an oil pipeline which runs from russia to poland and then to the e. u on schedule maintenance is the stated reason for the halt, but comes at a time of heightened tensions between minced and brussels. left latter issue, a sharp divide, emerges over poland tactics with france slumming, plans for a massive wall to be built on the border. we look at the tough line being taken against people crossing from belarus or migrant boats are freely crossing the mediterranean and germany considers imposing drastic cobra rules on the on vaccinated. joining a growing list of countries to do so that government struggles to coordinate its pandemic response amid
10:01 am
a power transition. ah, one minute passed at 6 in the evening in nairobi, in istanbul, and right here in moscow this wednesday, november the 17th. welcome to the news r and r t. our top story. doris has shut down a major oil pipeline which runs from russia to poland. i'm been on to other you countries, minsk sites on scheduled maintenance. now being that the stoppage would last 3 days . coincidence or otherwise, i put thought to ortiz elliot katrinka. this is actually the number one intrigue, whether there are any links between the closure of the operations in this throws war friendship pipeline. what i want to make clear though is that we're
10:02 am
talking about an oil pipeline and also earlier warnings by the, by russian president, alexander lucas angle, about the potential shut down of a gas pipeline. well technically there aren't because mens could is saying that's the reason for this is just that something needs to be fixed and this is something that's only gonna laugh for 3 days. more importantly, we're talking about completely different transit routes, completely different pipelines and different kind of commodities being supplied all in the one hand and gas on the other. so on paper it looks like this doesn't have anything to do with politics, but again, we do remember how last week, alexander lucas shan't go. his rhetoric was very aggressive. he pretty much said that if the leaders don't behave themselves, he is ready to cut off gas supplies from the europe, the amal pipeline. and this is something very important because we do remember that
10:03 am
we're hot on the heels of an energy crisis in europe. that mostly had to do with gas, skyrocketing and gas prices, as something that we were seeing throughout september and october. and this was very serious. and it could be that mister lucas ankle could be sending a signal to europe that i'm ready to pull the strings. maybe do something with his wall pipeline and let the e leaders think at what may happen next. so is this a signal or that is this not, not a signal. we don't know, but this could be the way he's thinking at this point. an important point though, we perhaps should touch on the energy, so flies that baller is trans. it's true, it's territory don't belong to minsk, has russia responded to developments? well, 1st of all, if we're talking about the dubois pipeline, which is used for all deliveries from the oil fields and central russia to
10:04 am
countries such as poland, hungary, the czech republic, germany, the russian side for now is rather call because they're saying that if it's only for 3 days, that is not going to affect the total quantity of supplies in a month. so with that there, okay. but actually vladimir potent, who often supports alexander lucas sango. and we know that barrows and russia are close allies when mister putin heard about this threat from the bar, wasn't president of a potential closures of the gas pipeline. he was rather critical about it. here's what exactly you said. we'll move to ensure theoretically, alexander lucas shank o can shut down the gas pipeline as the president of a transit country. he can probably give an order to cut off our supplies to europe . it, although this would be a violation of our transit contract. i hope it doesn't come to this. if it happens,
10:05 am
it will cause great damage to the european energy sector in the one contribute to the development of our relations with bella roofs in life. so mister potent remarks were rather calm and very diplomatic. i should say. this though, isn't, does something that we're supposed to expect from europe, because they're very aggressive when it comes to alexander lucas angle. they're aggressively reacting to anything. he says they are blaming him for waging a hybrid war are against the european union. so just wait till the european leaders say something about this latest decision to temporarily closed rouge bar or friendship. the oil pop on that we've just been talking about. ok. picking up on one of the earliest points there are bella rue says condemn, poland, border cracked, calling it violence against people on another countries, tertiary polish. border guards fenced off the frontier, firing water, cannon and tear gas to prevent migrants from breaking on through. now that's as
10:06 am
a top un official claims to be aware of the cracked on despite pictures being broadcast to the world. ah, the reports did they say that the boys had used the water cans against those migrants? how can you comment out? we don't have a confirmation on that, obviously if there was any such a treatment that that, that would, that would be wrong. there should not be any use of force in dealing with with these said this population with lea. european union is drawing up new sanctions currently against belarus,
10:07 am
accusing it of engineering the crisis by flying in migrants from the middle east and sending them to the polish border. misc denies that an a rob is heating up with russia, also entering the fray, slumming, the inhumane way refugees are being treated. the ladaja not a migration crisis. we must respond with all possible tools to our disposal. smiled as human beings has been converted and weapons should ideally run not only board to go on the post border, but the military as well. up to 20000 personnel with aircraft and armored vehicles are deployed there. the e wants to protect itself from an invasion of refugees that come from countries bombed by the u. s. lead western coalition polish actions that absolutely unacceptable to tear gas water cannon shots fired over the heads of migrants towards belarus. this reflects a desire to hide their actions. they cannot understand that they are violating every conceivable gnome of international humanitarian law. was 3000000,
10:08 am
but there is far from being united fronts in europe on this issue, italy, in france, they're both crushing poland. severe strategy for dealing with migrants trying to enter the e via baller roost, in fact, parse is refusing to fund the new wall that warsaw wants to build along the frontier. though the european council chief has given at his blessing. it's lydia, this is possible. this on the truant legal framework threw up a level 2 fighters interest torture history. but we're not just you 40 hamilton. i am in favor over europe, which protects his borders, but not a europe which bristles with the barbed wire or covers itself with walls. it would be this contract, and there 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 coal to which human beings are exposed to the borders of the union is surprising. cheapie. on the polish border is one of several
10:09 am
e. u migration hotspots last weekend alone. more than $600.00 refugees arrived on italy shore is after traveling from north africa. and as ortiz, charlotte dubin ski explains, they are being treated very differently to those attempting to cross fire. 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 your ex mediterranean coast, my grants find themselves greeted by agencies there to lend a helping hand fly just under 2000 kilometers to another
10:10 am
e u. country. and the reception couldn't be more different around 3000 migrants, desperately trying to survive in no man's land as winter sets in n g o z. and agencies can't even get full access while the past to freedom is blocked by t cast by water cannons by barbed wire. in a bid to shore up the eastern european borders, poland is going to construct a war war that would be partly paid for by the european union. and is designed to stop people from crossing into the block where they can then make claims for asylum . but as this war has been given, the green light, the use top court has just issued this ruling. the courts of justice finds that hunger 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
10:11 am
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 war? finance by the eve do exactly that if the european union is full of contradictions . so massive immigration, it's right. this is a good athens brussels. it, it has been telling all the member states that they should greet all these are the immigrants coming from the, from all over the world. they said quotas and they went to some political wars with hungary, with serena with poland because they would refuse a quotas at the region. union wants this message integration to the know of a sudden in one specific country. it is okay to build a wall. and that's fully 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
10:12 am
immigration and that it's using these tremendous, depending on the situation around a 115000 illegal border crossings have been made. they see at the e use external board is the majority of still coming from the main routes that have 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 durand with both moral political and now financial support. and while it's easy to say that this is picking one mistake against another, this is much, much more than that bases double standards at the highest level, se sum. and that level goes all the way to brussels. charlotte, even ski ot paris,

can moving the program on germany is considering sweeping new coven restrictions for the on vaccinated. the rules will apply to no small number. 14000000 adults mirroring a controversial system now in place and neighboring austria. but with berlin preparing for a power transition, the timing's complicated peter all over explains alarm bells ringing in germany. the country's covert numbers. a cause for grave concern, so much in fact that those that are looking to form the next government in germany . well, they say more restrictions on needed. i listen, a smile 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. when this week has seen a continuation of high coven infection numbers across germany,
10:14 am
while the 7 day average of that is reached, never before seen levels. from monday, this week, berlin saw new restrictions come into play coal. the 2 g approach, which bothers that are vaccinated. o'connell show that they have recovered from covered from restaurants, theaters, gyms and nightclubs, defenders. it must critter some, a little bit critical of it that i'm actually here for my 3rd vaccine short. but i think it will deepen the divisions in society as well. say, sorry, 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 did some on you 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 hope isn't, 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,
10:15 am
which is one of the hardest hit areas by the 4th wave. the state leader marcus zona, is wanting things could get very bought. if 10 is the apocalypse, we're at 9 there. is a very simple way to solve the problem and that is vaccination. the basses where germany is faltering vaccination rates, half plateaued at around 67 percent. and protested against covered restrictions. a still vocal any among those looking to lead the next government of germany, there is a mind that there has to be a discussion on mandatory vaccination, the people in certain professions like health care. i think it is right that we have now started a discussion about whether this should be done in italy where vaccine uptake is
10:16 am
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 draws pushback from the public as gland. this is 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 with 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 leading us into 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 impose national restrictions on those that have not been jobs. not combs,
10:17 am
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 offi, berlin vaccines. don't necessarily make the problem go away though. the british territory of gibraltar has the highest coven inoculation rate. in the world, it's entire eligible population is vaccinated. yet infection rates are rising drastically there than all public christmas celebrations. they've been cancelled. you can tell further into that story at r t dot com and still ahead here owner activists in canada, se assisted suicide is becoming far too commonplace. the country said to allow those with our to chronic physical ailments to end their life obliquely. that's among our stories coming up shortly with
10:18 am
when there are problems like the energy crisis, europe's illegal immigration on poland border or even when the wrong political party or politician when there is a culprit, always waiting in the wings. and that's russia. scapegoating. russia is the excuse used by failing western elite for driven by a dreamer shaped bank. concur. some of those with dares sinks. we dare to ask in join
10:19 am
me as a 1st aid on the alex salmon show and i'll be speaking to guess in the world of politics, sport business, i'm show business. i'll see you then. 019 minutes posterior bach with arty. it's feared, lives are being cut at risk in england over increasing, waiting times for ambulances. not sol. so having a knock on effect on the national emergency phone line, which is being inundated with extra calls from people asking where their ambulances are reportedly be average. wait for a call to be answered last month. it was 56 seconds. compare that to the same time . last year. 7 seconds years, ortiz shoddy edwards dusty. while grin statistics and shock reports aren't exactly something the united kingdom is particularly alien to when it comes to the n. a
10:20 am
chest, the pandemic, i'm the government's handling of it. but these findings are definitely alarming as, according to a report, people are now dying in the back of ambulance. is that a stuck outside of hospitals simply because they can't get in and up to a 160000 patients every single year or coming to severe harm as a result of these delays. plus those nearly $300000.00 more emergency calls a month the normal at because of the ambulance shortages. we think that about 3 quarters if the extra phone calls that are coming in on 999, i'll repeat dialers trying to find out what's happened to the ambulance. they are having to wait for too long for. so this is essentially a cycle of crisis because ultimately patients can't get admitted into hospital, they're waiting outside or even being treated in ambulances. but that means those ambulances can't get back on to the roads, to respond to further emergency service cools. in fact,
10:21 am
many people are now waiting, including the most serious of categories like suspected heart attacks or even strokes. and some of these categories are even waiting up to an hour for an ambulance to arrive. and of course is, is having a detrimental impact on patient safety. the ambulance service is simply not providing the levels of service. they should patients her way them too long, and that is put into that much risk. well, this report on the exactly go into the amount of people that are dying, but does confirm that have been deaths in ambulance is waiting outside emergency departments or shortly after being admitted, following a long way to also consider is that other people as still in their homes are not able to be saved because paramedics, a stock, or the, any un unable to answer these calls. now, all of this, all of the findings in this report is particularly reminiscent to just this time last year at the height of the pandemic. where people, again were being treated outside hospitals as the hospitals was simply running out
10:22 am
of beds due to the demands of the cave at 19 pandemic. now back then, and h, as bosses described, are the services as being on its knees. and now that describing it as simply at breaking point, as the demand is increasing, as also as the cobra cases are back to skyrocket levels. and all of this really basically says, if you're sick in the united kingdom, it's a very bad time to be a lot of interest of reaction to this next story and the youth. uneasy activists in kennedy voiced alarm over a surgeon medically assisted debts saying the practice has become normalized. euthanasia was made legal encountered in 2016, not the or more than a 1000 people underwent assisted suicide. according to health canada. that figure reach 7 and a half 1000 last year, according to one psychiatry, as people are now asking for the procedure even when they're physically healthy. a
10:23 am
few days ago, a 3rd, she will 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 request and that they would be helpless to do anything about it. is heretic, they have to worry that by going to psychiatry his daughter might be killed by the very psychiatrist or 5 years ago with a canadian government legalize youth. uneasy for adults who are terminally ill, the rules for relax further some months back. meaning no people who have diseases but could potentially live for many years, can undergo assisted suicide and from 2023 canadians who is suffering is cause solely by mental illness, will be alive to opt for euthanasia. we discussed the issue with fair number of people including alex schellenberg, executive director of the youth. and is he a prevention coalition in canada? he debated at this with kate allot, author and charity father. let's have
10:24 am
a look and see this. this statistics are quite shocking, but my position, i do fear that is very, very important. that if 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 you're 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 last 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 and depressor to die because they're a burden on the family of the health system. and they haven't got the money. and the family is going to go in the vet for it does a person out there who wants to know who actually wants to die because they want to
10:25 am
and i suffering. and i, dad saw it from a theoretical point of view. i had locked it is under the radical point of view because he so i have not answered the question why, why is society allowing this type of a suffering that 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, and 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 a 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 their death. that we are back cross talking
10:26 am
again in moments peter and guests are discussing today why whenever there's a major global incident, more often than not about finger of blame gets pointed. one direction that's been mm . so when i went to the wrong one, i just don't hold any world. yes to see how did they become the advocate, an engagement. it was the trail. when so many find themselves will depart, we choose to look for common ground. we're empowering ourselves to be more efficient,
10:27 am
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 here. it's an extension of traditional time. the defenders have always been one step behind the attackers. a there's one called option in the offering. it's not a matter of, if it happens, it's a matter of went back geysers financial survival guide. housing, rob, oh oh, you mean the downside? artificial mortgage right now get carried away. what kind of report for new york, it's really what america is about ah,
10:28 am
when our mayor took our place, he was elected because of his campaign on our city, being a tale of 2 cities, the haves and i have not. those who have not are usually the ones who weren't being buried on hard. i said he has always wanted to forget about. so he wanted to forget about the people who are buried there. just wanted to forget 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 document of the inequality that has existed in the city for centuries. ah, ah,
10:29 am
ah. hello and welcome to cross thought were all things are considered. i'm peter little when there are problems like the energy crisis, europe's illegal immigration on poland border or even when the wrong political party or politician winds. there is a culprit, always waiting in the wings, and that's russia. scapegoating. russia is the excuse used by failing western leads . i cross sucking perceptions of rush. i am joined by my guest roberts in court. he is a meritus professor of history at university college court and a member of the royal irish academy. his latest book, his stollins library, a dictator in his books in paris we have a moral. he's the founder of the center of political strategic analysis strap poll
10:30 am
. and here in moscow were joined by vladimir goldstein. he is the chair of the department of slavic studies at brown university gentlemen, cross sack rules in effect. that means you can jump in any time you want, and i always appreciated. let me go to jeff 1st in court. rosa phobia is very real . we see it all the time, particularly in po and politics and popular culture. if you watch netflix at all, and i have, i have you in ireland to have as of yay. in paris, we have vladimir moscow, but he is a resident of the united states. so, you know, i'd like a little bit of a how it's expressed where you are. is there a specific kind of russo phobic expression that you find in ireland? go ahead, jeff. well, i think because sir, no, sir, russia, so as a some other countries. so for example, you k, okay, so i live in on bobs, i follow the british media and sometimes it seems stuck on like being bombarded.
