12:00 am
ah, the headlines here, what are you international? a growing list of countries are shut down and travel with southern africa after the emergence of a new cobit strain cases off spreading though the latest detected in israel and belgium. the developer of sputnik be prepared to test the russians shot against the new mutation in the program. we hear from the hungarian foreign minister about his own country's vaccine policy and the need to put lives above politics. there are many countries i'm considering the issues or vaccination as if it had a political order or ideological nature. you know, it's about the lives of people with, well, i didn't do anything special. i should be back to my life. every post in my situation would have done the say, the 1st words of a rescue who was found alive and
12:01 am
a siberian coal mine off to being presumed dead. a criminal probe has now been opened at the 1st explosion which claimed more than 50 lives. ah, saturday and 8 o'clock in the morning in moscow and a very good morning to you from all of us here with our t international. i. rural research in the us and canada have joined the e. u and halting air travel to southern africa after discovery of a highly infectious new cove at strain. the so called all may cross very and has already spread and globally with israel and belgium that the latest now to register cases. reporting on how you are up is responding. ortiz, shawna, dupont came will this super mutant strain of covey it has been described as being more transmissible than delta. and that has really ramped up fears. it's been reported that it's already been found on the european continent in
12:02 am
belgium that is from a sample that was taken from a young woman who said to have not been anywhere near the south of the african continent. she had indeed been to egypt and to turkey, and it's also said that she was unvaccinated key. and that not gonna happen confirm case of this parent is someone who came from abroad. this price was tested on november 22nd. he was not vaccinated and had no prior infection, so this case has been observed and confirmed. but i want to repeat that it is a suspicious, fair, and i don't know if it's a very dangerous one. of all, as a result of this, new countries are now scrambling to close their air space to a number of countries in the south of africa. that's because the super mutant strain has been found in several countries there. but it could already be too late, as that case in belgium shows now not much is known about this particular mutation,
12:03 am
but experts are really sounding the alarm over what they say, the potential properties of it could be. and the fact that it's such a heavy mutation just give you an example. experts in the u. k. have described this as being so mutated that it is barely recognizable when it compared to the original strain of cove at 19. and as a result of that, we have seen devastation across the world over the last 18 months or so. the european commission president is urging other countries to take heed and to also close their space. the european commission has today proposed to member states to activate the emergency brake on travel from countries in southern african and other countries affected to limit the spread of the new variant. now the u. k was one of the countries that 1st decided to put that ban in place of flights coming at to and
12:04 am
from those 6 countries in africa are. but it has said that that list could be expanded in the next few days with more and more countries being put back on the red. less than that could cause so many fears that yet again, travel plans as we head into the holy sea season will be thwarted just as they were back in 2020. now this also comes at a time when there is a 5th wave of the pandemic hitting the european continent so much so that countries are putting new restrictions back in place. we've already seen posh locked downs and locked downs in some countries like in austria. and in the netherlands, and even here in france earlier this week, the french health minister saying that from the middle of january, people will have to have a 3rd job for cove at 19 of vaccine. if they don't, then their health passed to ally them access to every day. things like cafes and
12:05 am
restaurants will no longer be valid. but the real concern here is if those experts are right that this mutation is so far removed from the original covert. 19 variant will the vaccines that have already been creative, be enough? will they even be effective? or as many fear will they just beat totally ineffective against this strain? if that's the case, it's going to leave the politicians scratching their heads again. and scientists having to go back to the drawing board. but the question many of us are now asking, when will this end? lucito sir, say the new variant has an unusually high number of mutations, although there is 0 evidence so far that is more deadly than previous mutations. a biologist, katarina, it's a very an off explain why it is cause for concern. if this variant indeed is proficient, more proficient than delta and can substitute delta,
12:06 am
then it's not the question of if the question of when it's very clear that this has been strain the emerged in the probably single individual which had a case of long code, it probably was this preston mune system where the you varian had gradually accumulated multiple mutations well being in the single person. and then was released in the environment and started talking. you individuals, what they can do. it's mostly just slow down the distribution global distribution of you very. and what will happen, whether they are restrictions not. germany is continuing to see a surgeon covert infections with a new daily record of 76000 cases. the health minister says it's vital to keep the new coated strain out of the country if possible. hello, good. the situation is more dramatic than anything we've experienced during the pandemic so far. and the my goal has to be to prevent this varian from entering the
12:07 am
best of our ability. the last thing we need in this situation is a new variance being enterprise. and meanwhile, the german air force is being cold and to help transfer cobit patients from l. overwhelmed hospitals. so far to military jets have been set aside for this. and we heard from infectious disease export klaus theaters after off. he says that with a new strain, all options are on the table. and the value of this new variance spreads quickly and the vaccines we have now start work when they're worried about the situation of the people who already are not clay. it may not be protected, so we have to wait and see if that worst case scenario becomes the case. maybe we'll be lucky. vaccines will also work against this mutation. the moment we don't know enough about it, there isn't a p c r test for. yeah, we have to be cautious. all a sort of virus is changing all the time. and several mutations occurred. viruses a multiply a few 1000 times a day. errors occur in the replication and a new virus emerges when it's not unusual, i'm going up in every day. i have vaccine producers are already trying to figure
12:08 am
out whether their drugs will work against the new or may crohn very. and here in russia, the head of the gun maliah institute behind the sputnik v short. so it's testing will start as soon as the institute has a sample of the new strain. but so far they remain optimistic as hungry, for example, where the russian job has been widely adopted. a study has found that it's effective against all earlier cove at variance and compared to the alternative vaccines. it was more successful of preventing hospitalization and death. well, budapest is now hoping local production of sputnik v will start next year. although the drug is still awaiting approval from the e. u regulator, the hungaria, and a foreign minister peter c auto spoke to ortiz, oaks on boy about the need to de politicize. the issue i really don't find the verse to describe how i feel about the fact that there are still many countries considering the issues of vaccination as if it had
12:09 am
a political or, or ideological nature. you know, it's about the lives of the people who knew the lives of the people. what is it for them 5 year, another political, it's rather a political and ideological debate. i'm very frustrated about that. to be honest. and i tell you why europe on the regulation speaks very clearly about hallway vaccine, can be approved on the territory of 2 ways. first, by the european madison agency, which is a normal, let's say, business of usual way of approving a vacuum. but a european regulation says that in case of the state of emergency, this one, the national regulators, are allowed to approve of axioms. also on a temporary basis before we started to use both scrutiny far from china, the national regulator of ours has approved the use of both. which means that the use of scrutiny in hungary is being based on a european regulation. and that's why,
12:10 am
to be honest, we don't understand why it is not being respected by the by the other member states . whenever i talk to western european colleagues on my vest or european colleagues of mine between for i, they always tell me that they know that the russian scientific performance can be spoken about calling very highly. and i said, look, it 1st the best. of course it works well, hungary and experts have approve that. and regardless of the fact that privately, they all say that when it goes to public, they act totally differently. i have the luxury to be in this position for more than 7 years now. so i clearly remember who said was 56 years ago, and i remember the way we were really, really attacked. and we were considering very, very hostile way, very rude expressions were used on us. and those who treated us in a very rude way. they are now giving, basically
12:11 am
a standing ovation to those who act similarly as we acted back in 2015. what do you think has changed in europe on that issue over the last 5 years? you know, i think there's a big hypocrisy. there might be some commons which, which sound to be different compared to what has been said since 2015 by the essence. by the essence of the european migration policy remained unchanged unfortunately. and if you look at the document or the statement or the founding document of the, of the new german government coalition, you will see that it's extremely pro migration extremely well. a black friday mayor brought profits to the world's biggest retailer, amazon. but across the western world, the day was overshadowed by anger over the company's treatment of workers and the environment. correspondent in new york reports. it's ortiz, caleb mob. oh,
12:12 am
i. well, we're here on 5th avenue and manhattan outside of the building where jeff bezos owns 4 floors of luxury apartments and right out here. as you can see, we're seeing representatives of labor unions and progressive community activist groups who are assembling to demand the recognition of the union at the amazon warehouses now among the crowd, our amazon workers and allies of the labor movement, progressive activists, et cetera. all highlighting the conditions of the amazon warehouses on demanding better treatment for the workers. here is some of what was in the call made for actions against jeff bezos on black friday. what is traditionally a top shopping holiday in the united states? the pandemic has exposed how amazon place is profits, head of work, as society and our planet amazon takes too much and gives back to little. they make
12:13 am
amazon pay coalition is demanding higher wages for amazon's employees. an end to the worker surveillance policies, extended sick leave and improvement of anti coven measures, an end to casual employment status and representation for the union. and they want amazon as well as it ceo jeff bezos to pay their fair share and taxes. now, last year on black friday, there were massive protests targeting amazon around the world. and this year continued that tradition, we saw actions in the united kingdom actions and latin america actions and bangladesh and many parts of the world targeting jeff bezos and amazon, highlighting the treatment of the workers and demanding union representation. now some of the protesters here today said that this is a global movement. we chose this day because we are following in the footsteps of what happened last year. and it proved to be the right thing to do because we're here today. but when we will, up the workers in europe are already blocking us warehouses in england. there are
12:14 am
actions all over the globe. and this, this is a massive movement against greedy capitalist like basis last years as, as well as a 2019 were pretty big. but this year may be the biggest. i me today, you know, amazon workers in south africa walked off the job and was all workers in brazil and in mexico walked off the job. so it's quite a gathering our seeing voices from the labor movement from climate change activists supporting groups. progressive organizations quite a gathering here on 5th avenue in manhattan, kayla marvin archie, new york. the amazon issued a statement in advance of the protests defending its environmental record and saying it provides safe working conditions on great benefits for all of its staff. however, many of the staff dispute that can you describe the conditions and the amazon warehouses? yeah, absolutely. they are brutal,
12:15 am
especially around the holiday season. they work 10 to 12 hours would a extra day now. mandatory extra time for the next 6 weeks, $6.00 to $8.00 weeks. you know, work is going to be working 55 plus hours just to fulfill packages for christmas in holidays. so these warehouses are over a 1000000 square feet. so they walk, plus the 10 miles a day, they only feed all it all the all the time. ok, there's no real bathroom breaks because if they pick away from the talking to station us time of task and they can absolutely be 5 for that. so they're subjected to, you know, long days of no rest, minimum, bathroom breaks, minimum break time in the working conditions that contain to get worse. i think it's a very sad and very bad. and especially when happening in the last 2 years in this country, people are suffering, especially the working class. jeopardy is a symbol of this country. but that county which is not based on the humanity, was based on the greed, jeff bezos. and just in
12:16 am
a minute is earning what amazon workers would dream of working in hours and hours and days. so we have to really focus on how they have so much money, so much control of markets and ability to drag down the wages. the washington post is receiving flack on line for a tweet suggesting that a deadly coll ramming in wisconsin last sunday was caused by the vehicle. not the driver will show you now the now deleted tweet. it refers to the tragedy caused by an s u v. and failed to mention what make any mention that the driver had been arrested and charged with 5 counts of 1st degree homicide. and the incident killed 6 people, including an 8 year old child and injured over 60, according to the challenges. the suspect is darrell brooks. he was previously convicted of sexual abuse and charged with domestic violence. he also serve time for candidates possession. it's been reported he shared pro,
12:17 am
hitler means and posts on line calling for violence against white people. the washington post was ridiculed failing to mention the suspect or his charges in its tweet. so why didn't they say that the canoe should tragedy was caused by an r 15 caused by an s u. v. events unfolded notice on the left, 6, the cover for black criminals, but depriving them of human agency. so the washington post said that the work you said her attack was caused by an s u v. i guess when my mother died on 911, it was the plains fault, has the s u. v been charged when are we doing have common sense? s u v. laws. other media outlets are also lambasted for calling. what's happened? a crash? will archie contributor and political commentator lauren chen gave us her perspective on the story. i think there's absolutely evidence that the western media is downplaying to walk a shot tack, especially when we consider their reporting of the cal written how shooting. i
12:18 am
think the difference in coverage frankly comes from the fact that the walk a shaw tack cannot be used for political points by the mainstream media or by the left and those 2 things are increasingly synonymous. unfortunately, if we look at the cow rittenhouse attack, there was the narrative being painted that there were violent. trump supporters were going out and attacking gentle a peaceful protest. her to simply wanted racial racial equality and we saw something similar with the january 6th event. the narrative was being painted that was that there were violent right wing extremists who are intent on overthrowing the government. i. we saw something similar in charlottesville. there was actually a woman who was killed as a result of a car ploughing into a crowd of people. and for months, if not still currently the mainstream media painted that as a terrible terrorist attack, that was the result of political extremism. if we look at the numbers, the washer attack is deadlier than any of those incidents that i've previously mentioned. 6 people have died. dozens more injured yet because the attacker is
12:19 am
a black male who we see from social media post actually had sympathies for black lives matter. there's not really many ways that the media can spin this in order to make the left look good, or to exert more power for left wing ideas. and therefore they've instead decided to just bury it completely. at this point, it's almost a cliche to ask people, can you imagine if the roles were reversed? but if the washer driver had, in fact, been white and he had injured 60 some black people and killed 6 of them, this would be international news. it would be news 4 months. it would be talked about 4 years or 20, possibly out here in moscow, president putin has ordered russian prosecutors to establish the cause of a deadly bloss on a sub yearian coal mine. to avoid a repeat of such tragedies that i stole stones at $51.00 after one rescuers miraculously found alive in the mind. he described what is one of those alexander? how do you feel the greatness. lucy, the start. are you able to see better?
12:20 am
yeah, i mean what, you see a confusion where all busted not crime and it went up with your floor from room. well, i didn't do anything special. i simply battle for my life or younger. moral leslie, my situation would have done the same. well, this is nothing short of a miracle. one of the rescue workers who was presumed dead as of this morning, has unexpectedly turned up, alive, reported leaving, coming out to the rescuers on his own. he was one of those 6 and missing rescuers, who declared yesterday to have not made it out of the mind when the operations was, were for to a halt. now this is obviously giving hope to the relatives of the victims at as of this point, there are now $51.00 victims. ah, is there the 52 that was initially reported earlier this morning? but unfortunately, the authorities say that there's probably not much chance that they will find any
12:21 am
more survivors that this is wanted of a kind miracle. as a matter of fact, of the rescuer himself is right now in stable condition. however, it's important to know just how unusual to says, especially given the chaos and the devastation that was going on in that mine. a quick breakdown of what happened is basically that almost a full day ago at 9 am on thursday local time. there were reports of an explosion and smoke spreading throughout the mine. 6 6 over 50 date of the horrific mine explosion inside barium. 8 30 am november the 25th. the mind with 285 people inside filled with smoke. after a methane explosion, a small enough with a with 9 am
12:22 am
november 25th accusation and rescue work starts reports of 1st casualties authorities. and now there is no contact with at least 37 people at 5 pm, november the 25th rescue operation suspended amid bears. if possible, explosion without 30 mine is still missing. rescue say there's not much hope left. it's minus have only 4 hours of oxygen supply. 10 pm, november, the 25th group of rescue work has fails to come up after the threat of explosion. latent 3 of them were found day. oh, no. on friday, 8 am. oh, good. i do believe plus years with 3 15 pm, november the 26th. a presumed dead rescue work came out on his own raising hope among desperate families of mine is. it is not the 1st deadly accident in this mine
12:23 am
with another meat said explosion, claiming 13 lives in 2000 the whole to my director and 2 others arrested over safety, cravings. oh yeah, i know you just yesterday a list you go, but we'll spot you on a different date with the curtain has fallen on a costly production of the nutcracker ballet in berlin this year before it had even been raised. that's off to fears, to $1500000.00 euro show would be deemed as racist over the representation of eastern characters. nuggets aren't i? murphy's car there? i number of possibilities. either you did not show any thing, but that can't be right. or you can say that you changed the context,
12:24 am
but as you look at everything or perhaps identify programmatic parts of a work, you have to interpret question and reassess the word. because society has changed that this is the time when the work was created was a long time ago. and that is the problem with historical performance out there in today's society, not people see many things differently of and have re evaluated them. so i think that is also our task, so no cancel culture, but a lot of accompaniment analysis and considerations. he does polychrome rippling, manuel the traditional production is now going back to the drawing board. are key scenes facing the acts include a chinese dance that's described as presenting a quote, stereotypical image of the country. and another in which a horem of ladies perform with a soloist, whose wearing so called black face make up for the move has prompted plenty of reaction. crazy. no. not crocker. in the berlin state ballet. nothing works in the field state. berlin, except idiotic identity,
12:25 am
politics. berlin will become the capital of absurd. it's done. people, the production works, stop the use of blackface and is good. the no crocker per se, is not the problem is the fatal decision against this masterpiece goals? actually, basically, i would leave the pieces as they are and possibly write comments in the program guide. we see certain things differently to day than in the past. in 30 or 40 years, people will judge what we do to day, just as critically as we do today about the past that you have to live with that history changes. i think it's totally absurd to demand that historical documents books a place like us to day. that's what it comes down to. she would criticize everything that is different from what we think to day, but then you can't use artwork or literature from the past at all. they thought differently from in the future. they will think different from the way we think today. you have to tolerate that last not right, correct. a story or wrapping up the news costs for this hour. if you're interested
12:26 am
in learning more about that whole controversy. log on to r t dot com. all right, we're just getting warmed up here in the russian capital. 8 26 am saturday morning . hey, we're back soon with more of your weld headlines. ah, ah, i saw a message from an unknown account because it had a self who with my passport as its profile page, i saw pictures of my documents. it was they also sent a credit contract. i had just 3 days comply with their demands to see if i didn't send money and they sent up an online hate campaign for the guy i was supposed to be a very dangerous man. one
