12:00 pm
ah ah, in a historic 1st and coordination with allies, the u. s. is releasing strategic oil reserves to bring down petrol prices after failed attempts to convince opec to boost production. what i will never accent is idiots who under the guise of we are dissatisfied. he's pure violence against people. the dutch prime minister lashes out to protest as often knights of rioting against tough, you, coven restrictions as cases surge unlocked. dancer bree impose across europe. and the leaked new york police survey shows that more than half of the cities officers wish they had never joined the force. we hear about the growing precious we have for the officials who campaign or promises really going to actively prosecute coughs. or what else could you possibly expect to happen? so they're going to take
12:01 pm
a step back in. this isn't going to make any ones they would say from, ah, and i live, i'm worldwide. this is althea international from moscow. i'm calling bray with a headline news. this our can start with some breaking news coming in from serbia casualties being reported from a series of explosions to the factory, making weather control missiles nay, the serbian capital bell gray, that's what they're described as any way. more than a dozen people have also been injured at the plant which produces rockets to fight hail. this is according to local media that we're getting the details from video to being shed online. some of which can see right now, showing a huge smoke clouds and billowing from the scene. witnesses say that the ground shook from the force of the blasts around a 100 work, as a thought were been at the facility at the time of the incident. those are all the details we have for you right now. we are trying to secure some more information
12:02 pm
for you when we do find out any more. we will of course, update you right here. a headline news now in an unprecedented move, president biden has opened america's strategic petroleum reserve making available some 50000000 barrels through the coming months out. he's kind of open has the details. the decision was made in coordination with other major energy consumers, such as india, japan, and south korea in response to the fact that oil exporting countries have not made the decision to ramp up the oil supply. as the biden administration has repeatedly requested. now, many of looked on and seen this as potentially a p r, move on the part of the biden administration to show that they are concerned about the economy and the rising oil prices. but as you can see on social media, it's kind of had the opposite effect. we see many voices speaking up and calling the move outrageous boyd and releasing 3 days worth of oil. that tax pays already
12:03 pm
paid for. joe biden would rather dip into a strategic oil reserve and puts americans to work in the energy industry bite and gave away our biggest bargaining chip when he shut down domestic oil production. what incentive would opec caps negotiate when they know we have no or else to go? the price gouging is just beginning. this comes as 70 percent of the us public says they think the economy is moving in a bad direction. the approval ratings of the biden administration are not good biden ministration has attributed the, the rise in gas prices and to the global oil supply, essentially not keeping pace with the world economy that is now recovering from the pandemic. now they blamed other countries for holding back oil supplies, as well as energy companies for not passing along the decreases to the consumer. the by did ministration, has repeatedly called out the opec countries. opec is led by saudi arabia and
12:04 pm
russia and said that they should pump more oil in the hopes of getting the price down. opec countries that represent roughly 77 percent of the world's crude oil reserves. they have declined to do that essentially. and they're sticking to their plan for only modest increases. you know, you have to remember oil consumption in the good stages, roughly 18 to 19000000 barrels per day. so biden is essentially releasing about 3 days worth of oil very gradually over the course of the next 3 months. so at this point that we're failing to see any real impact on the oil prices. well, europe's in the grip as another wave of covert with cases rising in germany in the netherlands in the 10s of thousands as a response tough restrictions of being re imposed across the continent. and that sparking a public outcry. the authorities in the netherlands detained at least a 130 people as anti lockdown protests and violent that with the prime minister, calling those responsible idiots. and he sold off to me as a prime minister, as
12:05 pm
a liberal. i will always defend demonstrations in this country as parts of all democracy of our rule of law. what i will never accept is idiots who, under the guise of we are dissatisfied use pure violence against people who are working every day to keep this country say a neighboring germany daily knew. corona virus cases have done more than doubled over the last 2 weeks. that with health care workers warning that they're being pushed to the limit of uneven, did switched. have been working here for 5 years. and the situation has never been as bad as it is. now. we are completely overwhelmed with an incredible number of patients. we no longer have an intensive care unit. all this patients are waiting until beds become available. eventually, patients that need to go and ventilators will be in the emergency department. rather than in the intensive care unit, there should actually be 7 nurses on duty. but we only have 4, and sometimes 3, it is not clear how it can take care of patients adequately inspect soon, flayson or more on the situation in germany,
12:06 pm
his or your of corresponded. what is the serious debate sounds away in germany right now. whoa. the whether the country should follow austria is lead and making vaccines. mandatory austria will make that move from the 1st of february of next year. the debate in germany is really over whether it would be legal or not under the current constitution. there are other measures being taken though, in some regions in germany or imposing nighttime curfews thing. you can go out of your home after 10 pm. while this, if you've stood guard, becomes the latest region, the latest area to counsel christmas markets for the festive period. following on from the state of bavaria, the state of soc city and a number of other cities across the country, angular merkel has described the 4th wave of covert 19 as the worst thing the country has faced. while health minister n spawn has painted a bleak picture of the way he sees the current state of affairs,
12:07 pm
shine it ended. these has been to us probably by the end of this winter. rather sometime cynically said, pretty much everyone in germany will be vaccinated, recovered or dead. but it's true with a highly contagious delta. very, this is very, very likely. well, in australia they are into the 2nd day of the latest national coven lockdown. it will last for at least 10 days could go on until the 13th of december. people there though, and people here in germany as well as being expressing their concerns that the actions taken by the government haven't been the right one job with all the time. i don't believe it. all the locked down will be over after 3 weeks. not even for us vaccinations, but it is what it is. it's too late too late. especially the mandatory vaccination which should have been implemented earlier. not in february. we thought what did the last few months bring vaccinations were done, tests were done, the distance was capital math floor and yet still the numbers rise. my i so i think
12:08 pm
its not nice because at 1st they said that it would open up, but then they built everything and then we are told that it must be close and cannot open in slovakia and the czech republic, covert cases are all so soaring in fact in those 2 countries from monday, extra restrictions have come into place barring the on vaccinated from hotels, bars, hair, dresses, and almost all public events as the fear is that intensive care beds will be well, they'll run out of intensive care beds due to the sheer number of people that contracted coven 19. when on the other side of the world, there have been opposing rallies in australia. those people there turn out to support and protests covered restrictions. the authorities are trying to expand their pandemic powers with a new bill to allow them to reintroduce locked downs and baxley mandates. once the state of emergency ends next month or the head of one region says that anybody
12:09 pm
opposing the mandates it's an anti vac, sir. you are out there in any way, shape or form campaigning against this main that you are absolutely any fax, your personal taxation status is only irrelevant. and the accusations continue to fly around are we discussed to the paddle of guests where the governments of failing in their fight against cove. it of course, i can see why the people are stronger, protesting their feel. look at the background, brianna, great world economic crisis since 2008. that even deeper, 2020 and that, and in that crisis that was brought forward measures against corona with which are not consistent in favor of the people. but for example, in favor of big companies and then there is a kind of a lock down, which again is more hitting the small companies, the restaurants, the small casual industry. some of the protests that we've seen over the past week,
12:10 pm
they've been a little bit agitated, but i think by far the most ferocious has been in the netherlands with the police opening fire there. is that an appropriate response? i think it really depends on the circumstances that that police officer found themselves in, if offices really genuinely did feel that life was threatened. and again, i wasn't there and we didn't see exactly what the situation was that i'd be fired or could be justified. it does raise questions as to why offices didn't have less lethal means to a combat. people that are the media and they have deemed riotous, you know, far more about this disease than we did 2 years ago for the alternative to lock downs and restrictions. so while the antibody levels go down, within 3 months, doesn't mean that the personal immunity is lost, but in fact, that the rate of transmission is not altered. so then the conceptually, the idea that you quarantine or restrict in some way, those who haven't been vaccinated versus those who have doesn't have any actually impact on the spread. we've been told that her,
12:11 pm
the protest is our idiots there by the dutch prime minister. and that they are the 8 agents of violence. i do think a criticism of the demonstrators is misplaced, given, is really very draconian restrictions which are at any rate illogical governments of facing recalled levels of mistrust resort. a survey published since he showed doctor the doctor. well trusted, but politicians were less trusted than any other member of the record levels of production. we've seen a very large and people not trusting the message of the government and actually not wanted to take up medically by also concerned the britain will be sending troops to the polar barrows border to help with a migrant crisis. but you can government's accused of failing to go with it even bigger immigration problem at home with the numbers of those trying to cross the english channel tripling since last year. reporting next from westminster. his shoddy edwards dashti. well pretty patel. the home secretary is being accused of
12:12 pm
totally losing control of the migrant crisis on the english channel class. she's being accused of double standards when it comes to how the united kingdom protects borders. you remember 3 years ago pre to patel said that she would make crossings on the english channel, an infrequent phenomenon. then later on more recently, she said she would shut off the route entirely, making it on viable. but what we've seen this year is up to 25000 people of cross english channel headed to the british shoals. in the last few weeks, numerous occasions over a 1000 people have made that perilous journey. and very sadly, in recent weeks, around 10 people have lost their lives, making that journey too well. both sides of the english channel is simply blaming each other. what we're seeing is a slight tit for tat, coming from the british and the french, basically a wall of words. but the united kingdom says at the french, refusing to keep its word on a joint patrol mission,
12:13 pm
even though the u. k. as forked out around 54000000 pounds to try and help with this operation. but the french simply say, this is a british problem. and now the home secretary is almost back tracking on what she said, that this isn't a quick fix solution. this problem will take time to fix and that there is no silver bullet. the only solution is whole scale reform of our asylum system. so that the home secretary is saying that this isn't something that can be dealt with overnight. in comparison though, to the migrant crisis on the polish by the roost border, while the united kingdom got involved in that almost immediately as the crisis i was developing some weeks ago, the united kingdom deployed a small team to assist in the operations on the polish side what we're seeing more recently as an additional 100 troops will now help to reinforce the frontier and adding to one of this. the u. k. has now signed an agreement with tone and missing
12:14 pm
. even help build a wall to stop migrants from getting in. now this wall is expected to cost $1.00, billions. lotta. that's around 300000000 pounds. it will be equipped with electronic surveillance equipment and topped with barbed wire to not that will be erected in mid 2022. now the punish administration are thanking and welcoming the british forces to help tighten insecurity. border. a border is and will be tight. we will insure poland security with the supports of british troops. a company of british soldiers will be deployed to serve alongside polish soldiers as soon as possible, hopefully later this month. well, both campaign is on the left and right of politics here in the united kingdom are far from happy and slamming this move on the right. they say that the british government is essentially showing a double standards because it's not really dealing with the crisis on the english channel, but almost immediately it's trying to alleviate the crisis on the polish border,
12:15 pm
plus campaign is on the left, will they to or condemning the government, they say the british government shouldn't be sending troops to deal with a humanitarian crisis. it's not a military one. so why send the troops and particularly pay attention to the fact that these people are helpless. refugees fleeing west in it generated conflicts? so 2 issues here, very different issues regarding asylum seekers at the united kingdom is broiled in one here at home. and one abroad, one though, we're seeing more rhetoric rather than action to try and deal with it. but then if we look over to the polish border, very, very different tactics being used by the united kingdom. some say though a slippery slope that those tactics could then be deployed here in the united kingdom to such as being placed saw new york's police are so great that half wish they'd never joins that according to a linked internal survey ahead of the cities. because police union claims also that new laws and tedious policies are punishing good cops,
12:16 pm
new york city police officers, a well past breaking point, a made diblasio and the outgoing city council as still piling on with policies that punish cops and a road public safety. the intolerable environment and our sub standard pay has every cop looking to get out as soon as they can or his fairs are shared by 56 percent of the cities officers. in a recent survey, the majorities said they wish they'd chosen a different career. citing public distrust and disrespect and a lot even said as they were afraid to pursue criminals for fear of being sued themselves. the she had seen sweeping police reforms in the city to curtailing the rights of authorities to use force and to restrain suspects. but even before those new policies came in, officers were already concerned about high levels of crime and believe that won't come down any time soon. either. almost 80 percent of respondents to this police survey said that there wouldn't be any improvement in safety,
12:17 pm
at least in the next 2 years. added to that crimes up nearly 15 percent since august. in response to our my p d says that it is taking the poll results into account as it tries to make the department more effective. while i spoke with one officer there, he told me that cops like him have become increasingly stigmatized. every cops i speak to in the y p v just feels that everyone is against them from the public to the elected officials, to the mayor, to even the higher ups the my p just feel like there's no right they can ever do valuable crime fighting tools like stop question frisk were taken away, you know, legal options for people, i would assume the police were expanded. you know, every, every elected official now has a platform. they want to go directly after police. this is going to make anyone safe, was going to make cops apprehensive and empower, embolden criminals. as we've seen that, the poll didn't surprise me or didn't surprise long foresman experts at all. you
12:18 pm
know, like i said, we want to have programs like defun, the police, which are directly going after cops. you have elected officials standing up and they should more empathy towards hard and criminals then towards the police that actually when our in corporate criminals, you know, we have elected officials who campaign promises. we are going to act that we prosecute cops, or what else could you possibly expect to happen, cause we're going to want to go out there risk their future, their, their family, their, their financial will be. so they're going to take a step back and this isn't going to make anyone's, they would say for developing route between paris and the e. u is outraged. french politicians criticize a meeting between the equality commissioner and a group that france brands islamist. they met in brussels as part of an anti discrimination campaign in paris schools, the talks abnormal more on that next from charlotte to bend ski. well, the european commission has signed itself in the dog house, with frogs,
12:19 pm
with french ministers blowing up over a meeting that was held last week between the commission and a muslim youth organization. several high profile ministers here in france really blasting the fact that that meeting took place saying that the commission, which met with this group called famous so was meeting with an islamist association that has been attacking france of this he did were referring to the matter to the commission in order to find against this islamist associations that are attacking france and are infiltrating, are very institutions. this. it is absurd. indeed. we are now approaching the european commission. don't let anything go. why is this great cause such as well? it's done so on several levels. it's been around for about 25 years. and in the last decade or so, it's apparent you received 3 lots of funding directly from the european commission frenchman this is also say has links with the muslim brotherhood. this is
12:20 pm
a group that is being designated as a terror organization by several are countries and has been banned in those countries. so france says one by meeting with family. so it's given the commission is key for the to platform that it shouldn't have. and to, by financing it, it's financing womic extremism, but feminist has also caused some other upsets here in france, just in the last few weeks on its website. it said it was part of an anti discrimination campaign that was financed by the council of europe. that campaign focused on women wearing he jobs who were being discriminated against, which is a very sensitive topic here in france that caused such a theory. the french government actually protested against campaign on the plug was pulled on it now at the time feminist. so was furious that, that, that happened and said that france was the country that was exporting the moose
12:21 pm
racism. we are seeing that the french state is really behind. this is this mere campaign, the censoring of the human rights campaign. and we are seeing that family paris is currently the capital of western prejudice. now the commission has denied that fantasy has received any money, but all she has seen a written statement from 2015 shows that at least in 2012, the group received funding just over 70000 euros famous. so for its part denies it, it has any links to the muslim brotherhood, and it says it's appointed the frenchman assist. i'm taking the time to essentially de, legitimize the work that he does. but it does appear that france is not about to back down on this particular topic. in fact, there is a suggestion that very soon found me, so could find itself on a list of banned organizations. here in france. russia's federal internet
12:22 pm
watchdogs, demanding that more than a dozen big tech companies, open representative offices in the country to provide accountability and compliance with national laws. as he goes down of explains, it's all about accountability, basically, so that the russian government has it easier, reaching out to these internet giants whenever the russian government rules that some content on those platforms violates rushes, louis essentially the ra, 13 names on the list, including such obvious pics as apple, google, as spotify, twitch tick, tock, and so on. so all these companies, basically, every company with an active, daily use, an audience of half a 1000000 people or more. they will have to open their will bureaus, representative offices here in russia. they should provide an electronic feedback form on their website for russian uses, sets up a personal account on the roster comment. so website for communications with the authorities include the recommended visit to counter on the publication and foreign
12:23 pm
entities are obligated to restrict access to information that violates russian law . so lately, there has been an increase in the number of cases when the russian authorities had to contact some of these giants and have them take down some content that the courts here have ruled to be well illegal. for example, facebook is facing a fine of about 110th of its revenue along with google, which can pay up to 10 percent of its revenue as well, in fines here in russia. so when these giants, along with other companies opened their regional bureaus here, russia's well collectors will have an easier job. a criminal defense chiefs warned of a massive increase in u. s. strategic bomber activity around russia's borders, including a particularly disturbing drills, testing nuclear weapons use. so gay shall go made the revelation of talks with his chinese counterpart. our correspondent donal quarter, has more it looks like both russia and china are ready for deeper cooperation when it comes to mutual defense. and that's because the united states is posturing
12:24 pm
itself as a military foe of both powers. i mean, it's no secret that china's and happy about american naval operations in the south china sea, or washington's claim that taiwan is separate from the mainland. as for russia, it looks like the u. s. is taking a more nuclear approach. let's take a listen to what the russian ministry of defense had to say. with mrs. were due this month during the u. s. global fund, a strategic forces, exercises 10, u. s. f. o strategic vomas' practice options of nuclear weapons use against russia almost simultaneously from western and eastern directions are based on what was spoken about at this meeting. it looks like are u. s. military aggression is actually bringing u. s. a is actually bringing russia and china closer together. the chinese defense minister at the meeting said that the u. s. is using the same aggressive military actions against his country as it is against his russian counterpart. we did hear from the russian defense minister again,
12:25 pm
who outlined what some of those actions entailed admissions wishes. susan's lucia records, a significant increase in the activity of u. s. strategic boma aviation. in the past month, around 30 flights to the boulders of the russian federation have been made, which is 2 and a half times more than in the same period last year. it's likely a joining of these 2 eastern powers wasn't exactly what washington expected to result from its increased nuclear posturing. either one of them is a serious a is a forced to be reckoned with for washington, but both of them together that could be a major obstacle for u. s. foreign policy. the pentagon is confirmed. it's bringing to an end, almost 2 decades of military presence in iraq. however, the statement does leave open the option of keeping so called consultants that an undefined roll the united states will uphold the commitments it made during the july 2021 u. s. iraq strategic dialogue, including that there will be no u. s. forces with
12:26 pm
a combat role by the end of the year. the white house also pledges to keep helping the iraqi army and government. however, many pharaoh repeats of the recent afghan debacle when the us abruptly abandon the country will not stay involved in afghanistan. militarily, our diplomatic in humanitarian work will continue. will continue to support the government of afghanistan. we will keep providing assistance to the afghan national defences and security forces. us invaded iraq in 2003 on the pretext of finding weapons of mass destruction. however, none of ever been found. 11 years later then president obama sent more troops to fight. i still around 2 and a half 1000 pentagon soldiers a still full to be in the country. the pentagon, with drawing at a time of particular turmoil for iraq mass protests of sweat. the capital fact that
12:27 pm
this month and the prime minister survived an assassination attend, or the author of renown book blood on our hands, which heavily criticizes us actions in iraq fears the worst of the pentagon pulls out the u. s. forces his presence in iraq is highly inflammatory, you know, after invading and conducting a brutal, murderous occupation of the country. not so long ago. and then, you know, bombing most sole and other cities virtually to the garage. if the u. s. does the same as they did in afghanistan, which is to try to div legitimize, you know, the sort of post us occupation government care. and if they freeze $9000000000.00 of iraqi assets, they have done with the afghans foreign exchange reserves. and then
12:28 pm
then yes, i mean iraq will face to similarly humanitarian crisis that should use for now i'll have the next update. after sobering look at just how easy it is for your online life to be hacked without you ever suspecting a thing i am hacked is next to on r t. ah ah. well, what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy, even foundation, let it be in arms. race is on a very dramatic development only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical of time. time to sit down and talk it
12:29 pm
really is no thing. they can't ride on police report, it's an all cash in december 2020, a group of anti finishes. sell out a film crew access for 3 months. so like if people are organization, if an idea that it must be a channel out the gate while they may kill their faces. but they can say what they believe in. we believe in helping our community. we believe that fascism is one of the major threats to united states has gotten reuben, this is a chance to see who and t for really are in order for me to extract my 1st amendment right and say that my life matter have to be on to the teacher, that's all american. we can't trust the police. we can't trust the government. we can't trust anyone except ourselves to protect ourselves in a
12:30 pm
short, they don't seem an official, mr. hatch or someone at the, at the, from the tech hockey. i was with some dinner washed them with a lot of thing inside pick. so i me to within another she ah, i usually sit almost by you. so what i'm going to look up in cities booklets excellence and she lights the lights. yes, the key moment sich, shes leeway asher show with.
