5:02 pm
realizing what the russian president vladimir putin was up to less than 24 hours before the crucial. i'd even say mega vital video conference with the u. s. president joe biden. he went to new delhi and left the indian capital late in the night and you only arrived in saw cheap russia early in the morning. in the meantime, in the west, mainly by nato countries, moscow is being accused of plotting some sort of invasion of ukraine or a rust accused of being aggressive elsewhere in the world. and calls are a very loud to once again isolate russia. now a while all of this is happening, moscow wants to show that up. it's got friends in asia, and it's ready to expand these kind of ties if the western countries aren't looking forward to building partnerships with russia. in fact, to have latimer potent and
5:03 pm
a wrench or muddy are always calling each other friends. and they've had this warm relationship for years now already. but of course, it's not only about to the personal friendship between the 2 leaders in a joint statement that was already published on the kremlin website. there are $99.00 paragraphs outlining the things that either have already been done together or that will be done together in the near future. this shows how much share india and russia c i to why at this point and how they want to increase cooperation in so many fields ranging from science, nuclear cooperation, space exploration. but most importantly, a military ties as well. this is what i asked. 3 the kremlin spokesperson dmitri pascall about when i was speaking him exclusively in the palace behind my shoulder injury. we're military technical corporation is
5:04 pm
a very important component of our bilateral relations with india. and as the president said to day at the beginning of his compensation with mr. moody, these relations are quite unique in their essence because we jointly not only develop but also establish joint production of high tech military products. these are well known missiles that we're making together, and now the production of kalashnikov as being established here. and other equipment. this is extremely important and this is an advanced format of corporation with special privileged valued partnership. these are the words that are constantly being used by the members of the 2 delegations. i can remind you that india is buying rushes arms. india is buying the most advanced missile defense system. russian made the asset 400. russia is upgrading a nuclear power plant. here in this country, new delhi is ready to invest up to
5:05 pm
a $1000000000.00 in russia and in russia's far east. in particular, this is of course something that is raising quite a few eyebrows in the west. and if we're talking this crucial military cooperation, frayed in arms and weapons and there's a special program that outlines plans for a 10 year period. the previous one has just expired. and i can tell you that moscow in india have signed a new one, which is going to be valid until one t 31. and yes, india has agreed to assemble the famous russian collage of guns too. geo politics specialist doctor sir m chola believes that talks between putin unloading or a clear sign of the strength of their partnership. i think for russia it helps to show is that it is not only china. it also has india on each site. and that helps to conquer, you know, i knew western adams to isolate russia. india has never gone along with any
5:06 pm
american initiatives to isolate audible, impose sanctions audible why court russia did that in 2014, also, or after the crimea, or was it integrated to russia? but i called on my administration on reminded that the we should know join sanctions and why got russia? we know what did that, and i show school by years so we would hope that medicines prevails. we are also talking to the west on the issue of sanctions threatened sanctions on india because we're buying the as $400.00 from russia and we have a category for them. with russia, it's a special department. sure. we can never abandon them in or a correspondence exclusive interview with dmitri pess, cough the kremlin spokesperson also talked about choose these upcoming coal between the russian leader and his american counterpart. he said it comes amid some fairly aggressive rhetoric against moscow. susan, who did you consider preparing for the video conference tomorrow?
5:07 pm
president putin and president biden would be having the tool, my mentors. this is a very complicated moment for the talks of rhetoric coming from as the u. s. and e u leaders sounds pretty aggressive. we see plenty of fake news about russia, allegedly planning and aggressive invasion, yet had the same time. no one talks to key average. no, what von ski have against even thinking if a military intervention in the dns can lugens conflict. and given the complicates of slack ground of us russian relations, it will be a difficult talk for the leaders. now we see that nato demonstrates its extremely aggressive position. we see mister salton bugs, rhetoric, when we see the different, you se, there's rhetoric 1st, they all say that they don't accept any red lines. second, they say that nater will do whatever it wants furred it will do it on whatever territory it once a 4th. all of this is aim to deter russia. we don't like that today. we do
5:08 pm
everything to ensure, oh, interesting issue under previous administrations when at least something constructive remained in our relations of our countries had reached an agreement though establishing a secure video cool line for the highest level contact. it had been abandoned until now vote its technical working order had been maintained. but now i think since everyone has been using the video g format for the past 2 years, and we decided to revive this line, especially since it allows us to discuss the most secret topics video can feel as the kremlin spokesperson mentioned, there claimed some been spreading that russia's poised to invade ukraine mosque was rubbish. those accusations saying they bear no relation to reality. rachada, it's the americans who are acting belligerently in the region that says media politicians alike rochard up speculation about a possible war. according to some reports, european intel agencies gave that version of events, little credibility,
5:09 pm
until washington's that then many allies were not convinced that serious things were happening. we were surprised about this intelligence gap. how and why the u. s . was seeing things that we were not seeing if i have to compare soundbites from before this info. and then at the nato meeting in riga, there was a big shift towards the u. s. version of things. yeah, and us talked about the new wave of tensions come as the u. s. sun russian president's prepared to hold that video call on tuesday. but joe biden looks in no mood to negotiate yet. i of course, diplomacy is out and red lines of that to be crossed when the big bad wolf is planning a land grab ring a bell. a similar warning came in the spring when russian troops gathered for snap
5:10 pm
training exercises. and again, when military drills were conducted in crimea, and only recently moscow was supposedly the mastermind of a qu, in key of remember the currency of no mean either because it didn't happen. in fact, none of the predictions came true, but this time apparently it's different. this time, it's the real deal, and to feed the fair, even drawing up the kremlin battle plans the new year offensive. and for the umpteenth time this year, russia is forced to defend the presence of its own troops on its own land. russia is not a threat to any country. the deployment of russian troops on the national territory is our sovereign roy and no one's business. it is nato on its members states a recklessly moving their military forces and infrastructure to the russian borders . so what is washes red line, us spy pained jetting towards russia's borders. passenger jets with hundreds of
5:11 pm
civilians on board, diverted because an nato re complain was to close and wouldn't respond to ground control. the actions by the u. s. air force created the threat to civilization and the fact that the catastrophe was averted over the backseat doesn't mean that the u . s. and nato can go on the risk in people's lives with impunity. the latest american war ship sailing into waters watering. russia was, it shows was new to, you know, a u. s. warships has now entered the block, seeing when we can see it through binoculars or the crosshairs of us hills ancestors excused him about one or multiple missile systems just across the fence. it worked a bit, but with him look at where nato's military infrastructure is located, just a short distance from our borders. in romania whole english plants and we saw defense systems have already been deployed and they can easily be converted into offensive missile systems will target us. it only takes a matter of minutes to change the software and his vision. now, instinct tells me that if
5:12 pm
a russian destroy was spotted steaming into new york harbor, it would be a flaming red line for washington. but believe it or not, for us all, this is a pink line at best. the real issue is nato, or rather nato's expansion. and expanded it has from this humble state in 1990 to this empire in 2020. now back in the day, russia was promised, nater would grow not one inch eastward of berlin. wel, that's berlin. so no, it's not an ent, it's over a 1000 kilometers. and now it's knocking at rushes door. ukraine joining nato and we've been talking about it for a long time is a red line for us. the continual drawing of keys into the military or bit of the alliance, the de facto start of natives, assimilation of the military infrastructure of this country. and the desire to turn it into a foothold for confrontation with russia could all cause severe negative consequences and destabilize the military and political situation in europe. but lucky for nato,
5:13 pm
it's got a gas out of jail free card because in politics, well promises are made to be broken. there is that where is that written down? where is that from was written down and under the rumor, this friend among the rush, good. and that you think what you want us to leverage good. it's in the meantime, the us on phased by its terrible track record of predicting russian behavior is covering its spaces and drawing up some economic sanctions. you know, just in case i'll throw nothing screams diplomacy more than getting your threats in a row before high stakes meeting. or you mentioned an incident last friday when russian or a traffic control how to divert to passenger or lawyers near ukraine to prevent a collision with the u. s. biplane. moscow accuse washington of causing a threat to civil aviation and risking lives the pentagon. a little earlier, it should a statement about that,
5:14 pm
denying that it's plain at any one in danger. and if all our talk of a russia ukraine conflict has got you wondering what's really going on, why not check out the views of scott ritter on our website. the former us and tell officer doesn't by what various outlets are selling. read all about it on r t dot com. meanwhile, kia continues to push that must go threaten or it's if the defense ministers calling on the u. s. the u. k. and canada to provide military support to counter the supposed risk of a rush, an invasion, and he's warning of a potential migrant crisis. if war does break out. we spoke to political commentator, chris bum, brian why he thinks key of is offering the ukranian is becoming more, more always hysterical demands that if you like to join nato to be supplied with high tech weapons by america in the west. so it is becoming more warm cervical
5:15 pm
because it's doing sort of the situation and it's not getting what he wants, the way becomes a need to memorize it. but there are growing voices in the way. you are say, why you create not being allowed to join nato despite the fact was, is very clear. this is a read why image russia will know why it's the cross. good, simply, if you're creating the joy need. so it will be what was over a 100 miles in some ways to 300 miles more still something russia is going to do with absolute reputation breaks the promise given to mikhail gorbachev. that nature will not, not allow me to use the lines, any members, any of the former satellite states over the soviet union, eastern europe, and indeed, the former soviet republics. i promised broke it and it was made. everyone knows it was made. the white house has announced a diplomatic boy called of the 2022 beijing winter olympics, citing concerns about
5:16 pm
a legit human rights violations in china. as if i knew ministration will not send any diplomatic or official representation to the beijing 2022 winter olympics . and paralympic games, given the peer scenes, ongoing, genocide and crimes against a humanity and john and other human rights abuses, the athletes and team usa have our full support will be behind them 100 percent. as we cheered them on from home, who will not be contributing to the fanfare of the games, the stand off comes amid already heightened tensions with washington, frequently accusing beijing of mistreating minority groups. a diplomatic boycott though won't prevent us athletes from competing. earlier chinese media wrote that it would technically be impossible for washington to stage a diplomatic boycott, given the new american diplomats had been invited to the games in the 1st place. the international olympic committee meanwhile said that they respect the biden
5:17 pm
administration's decision and reiterated the importance of leaving sportsmen and women. arts of politics or china has called the move and i tried political provocation, but i've given no details as yet on how they may respond. let's get into that very points with joseph at gregory mahoney, politics professor at east china normal university in shanghai. you're very welcome to the program. beijing earlier threatened those contra measures. if a boycott was announced, what do you think the possible consequences of washington's decision will be? well, you know, it does signal that the, by the administration wants to politicize the olympics. somewhat similar to what we saw between the us and the ussr during the cold war. now this will indicate the many by does not subscribe the life experience a peaceful, athletic competition. we should keep in mind, however, that it's not a total boycott as your lead and noted. american athletes can still compete. furthermore, it's not as provocative as what we see from the us back to ukraine against russia
5:18 pm
or taiwan. again, say when china or how the us or the proliferation of nuclear weapon to australia. the bigger question now is whether other countries will follow washington police and imposed similar boy cards and how china will respond. yeah, just to pick up on that. i mentioned the chinese media reports earlier that the, the u. s. has yet to receive an official diplomatic invitation to the event might be argued that this boycott is more grandstanding as opposed to a meaningful move that may have a bigger impact on vision. you know, it's not necessary slide against paging it, it looks like a reactionary attempt by a week president pandering to members of congress who encouraged that decision. the responses that i'm seeing in social media from chinese people and the government will be paying attention to this and by james, is that good written? we're glad that you're not attending. now, in my opinion, i think it's
5:19 pm
a shame. u. s. government won't be there to support it's athletes. and i hope beijing can avoid being sucked into this type of petty tit for tat nonsense. that's been coming from washington throughout by and time and office at long before that. do you think joseph for agree that this boy gets a sense of it will proceed. a new batch of sanctions against china. i think we will continue to see at least a minor but headline grabbing provocation from washington until next november at least when the u. s. has its mid term elections, that's when democrats will learn, whether they'll keep power in congress. and when will have a good indication of whether or not biding will get anything done during the last 2 years. and especially the starts campaign and reelection against republicans. we will try to show their tougher on china the summer saying us china relations, you know, it's the beginning of a new cold war is not in any way true,
5:20 pm
or is it possible to expect us to perhaps, to return to a more constructive, mutually beneficial dialogue here, you know, we saw the recent summit between president biden and i think a lot of us believed that there were good reasons for us to start walking back the tray, where because it's been so destructive to the us. but it, it's clear that by the new cam strong in ways where he really can't move even rationally and american self interest with respect to china. whether not, this is going to culminate in a new cold war, or something like a cold work remains to be seen. i don't think we can just travel back in time and repeat something, particularly a cold war that really only exists in the american imagination. imagination that the u. s. defeated the ussr and that they could do this perhaps against china. it's entirely different period of time. it's entirely different period of history. i don't see that working out if it does in fact seem to be the path that walking to
5:21 pm
was always tough analysis. thank you very much for your time and your thoughts today. joseph gregory mahoney, politics, professor, east china. normal university. in a controversial new new york is set to become the 1st us city to require co vaccines for all private sector workers. merch, bill de blasio was saying that rule will take effect later this month just stays before his term and our teeth kill them up and reports. new york city mayor bill de blasio, who portrays himself as a national leader in the fight against covey 19, has taken a pretty bold move and announced a vaccine mandate for the whole city of new york. for all private businesses, he cited the on the kron variant as well as cold weather and seasonal fluids and other factors in making this decision. quite a big move from the new york city mayor, who is outgoing,
5:22 pm
he will soon be out of office. here's what he said. as of today, we're going now say, 1st in the nation, measure our health commissioner. well, now's a vaccine mandate for private sector employers across the board. now the vaccines are already required for all city employees that teachers, firefighters, police officers, emergency medical workers, etc. furthermore, they are required for the staff of all religious and private schools in new york city. but this new mandate will hit a 184000 private businesses across the city of new york. they will be required to have vaccinations for all of their employees. quite a dramatic move and there's been quite a negative reaction and response made a blast. you would impose a 1st in the nation vaccine mandate for all private sector workers in new york city . build blasio isn't a mayor. he's a tyrant. just spoke to catherine while the president of a prominent
5:23 pm
n y c business group. we were blindsided. there is no full warning, no discussion, no idea about whether it's legal, a who he expects to enforce it. new york city announces covey vaccine mandate for private businesses going where no city has gone before, because it's potentially unenforceable, and will probably get stuck in the courts until well off to the med to parts at the end of the year. now the new york city mayor expects that this will survive any legal challenges. we already saw a situation where for a moment jo biden's, federal mandate was put on hold by the courts. but then later upheld in the court of appeal. and bill de blasio expects the same except expects that the courts will uphold this mandate and it will move ahead. now it's important to note the mandate will go into effect on december 27th, which is the day. it's actually 4 days before bill de blasio is set to leave office and be replaced by new york city. mayoral elect, eric adams, the new mayor, will be coming in and replacing bill de blasio 4 days after the mandate. now eric
5:24 pm
adams, the incoming mayor, who was elected in the vote a few months ago, says that he plans to meet with people who are critical of the mandate and listen to what they had to say. and if you taken notice of the tone in the city right now, and the anger that may prove to be a little bit more than he is bargaining for failure to provide equal world wide access to vaccines may result in new coven streams emerging. that's the warning from the president of the international federation of the red cross. in an interview with our to earlier, francesco, rocca discussed not just the war and cobit, but also the polen. beller is migraine prices and there were some county 9 european union, for example. we administer that there dosa. while in africa we sta, louisa raised that tisa temper, santi boonies, engrossed with 0 percent. so something that says morgana said that what we're ready
5:25 pm
to rule so far, we are ready to scale up our activities in africa, by deity, the shoes about our audited, the, the vaccines to have access to the vaccines. we have to put pressure on the pharmaceutical companies are there, you will be an union, the united states, u. k. we invested the b unsolved dollars, sir ins researcher due to the dual to make this vaccine accessible. so why the boy discount ended up being county is that, that does not derive that to have access. so i think these, it should be a common gold, not something that said belong to the, to the, from a central young company. because they beginning their bellamy dead upon them, it has been politicized to look at they, they did, they did the level of the fake news or their day even political lisa had to spread . busy around a wardrobe. so this is something that unfortunate has been pretty decisive bukasa you test to do with the field to people. it's up to the political leader to follow they, they advise is coming from they sankey, community to least and not to them,
5:26 pm
to walk with them to avoid the total, to vote at the, on the same level and diesel to the media is an important responsibility. yes, and tv community and people the media and the governments are continuing to ring the alarm bells over this very end. but we're having the w h o. the chief australian medical officer and the south african medical association saying don't panic. what do you say we should follow the. the advisors coming from the debris had shaw and his and d. v. community saw dwarfed, and the ability to lead us and the governments out substituting a there this and given community in dealing with a call in 19 and, and it is near the deal to may davie and sat in terms of our over ah, did, did. did the reason why we have these new very answer. so we have called it will be me day be the incident. so without, i brought my vaccination without giving access to any human beings up to the vaccines. the risk of neil vianza lays a's of very high aga,
5:27 pm
and we can not blame also, these is another aspect of it. for as is, it is of concern windata. we can not blame the a. so deputy, a scientist, a tool to hook for a heavy anger. i opened the door to the scientific community about these new discovery galaxy i think was i was it with idea. unfortunately, it is not working as expected. so the number of distribution all of the vaccine, so i'll go on my callback, so he is, i ism, is not so high aga, and we, we expected much more ride them. so of general she from the dimensional community. and, and they had the idea that was a good idea. he was due to give the priority and then some distribution by called access to the medical doctors to the nazis that are working on the front line. and unfortunately this is workinger leslie, 50 percent. so fire, so then i'm, they said ready very, very law and that is issa eyes and i did aspect of the international committee
5:28 pm
should take as easily in consideration. so we have to do more intensive distribution and giving access the better was fred crossley this both with international federation. i think that the moment is dead. linger i, i good job. of course the season and not to meet tame or long term solution that the ira hosted in a shallow dera, but so far they are in a warm environment and, and we are engaging in ag discussion we day made a man the government of mendoza to will to find either solution out for them and put on the unfortunately we don't have access said to the board to unfortunately am not even andy's i. so he's on a full consent form. my says that i'm not surprised about european union now, and there was his county. ara reacting, guy in dealing with the human beings, these his eyes. and i'm wondering if you're loosing guy by humanity because he's not about every county has the right to say that policies for migrations. we are not questioning if some outside of the, the humanity on which we have to,
5:29 pm
to treat every human beings. this is the only point that we are raising the head of the red cross in the studio earlier. and that's wraps up the news block for this hour. but there's a full half hour of programs just about the kick off, find out what's showing shortly. bye fla. oh, i focused on ukraine, joe biden says, i don't accept any one's red line. russia's foreign minister southgate marlborough says the nightmare scenario of military confrontation is returning on this edition of the program. we examined the significance of both statements
5:30 pm
ah, a with i'm african retents and you're watching a special edition of going underground on this day 156 years ago. the end of legal slavery was ratified by the u. s. congress through the 13th amendment. however, the global power and economic system remains shackled to a racist colonial logic. axiomatic linked to the so called enlightenment which fostered genocide so argues professor can and andrew's author of the new age of empire. now racism and colonialism still rule the world.
