2:01 am
public transport and sports events, meaning a 2nd less than merry christmas in a row for many in the country. and also on the way for you, for right in front of russia's area, $51.00 anomalous zone in the year old taiga. that according to forbes, is among the 8 best places in our planet. to hon for extraterrestrial correspondence. visiting a russian village widely known as a place of may stories, myths and abnormal activities. ah oh, they that very good morning. great to have your company here on our tea. the mother of all sanctions. that's what washington is. apparently busy preparing as tensions over ukraine and nato expansion. mount emma putin and joe biden thrashed it out in 2 hours of crisis talks by video link. last night i correspondence in moscow and
2:02 am
new york had the upshot him reaction. there was a lot of hype around the school, but at same time, very low expectations. and any major breakthrough would happen and not indeed seems to be the case here. off to that phone call, which a number of issues was raised ranging from cyber warfare to strategic stability, to regional issues such as iran, there are 3 points on which they do converge. the fuss is that the u. s. on russia will continue to walk diplomatically together, moving forward to that the bulk of the conversation i was dedicated to ukraine and 3 that indeed bite and did warn of the serious punitive measures in case of any attack on ukraine. now for the differences on ukraine, the u. s. statement quite broadly said that really all that happened was that president biden expressed his commitment to ukraine's sovereignty and urged 40 escalation. that's all. what we're hearing from the kremlin though,
2:03 am
is that president putin very clearly laid out the numerous ways in which case is violating the immense agreements which just reminder our list of protocols that are in place to try and settle the conflict in the dumbass region. in easton ukraine. now another thing that completely didn't get to mentioned by the white house was moscow's concern about aggressive nato activity, especially in the black sea region, as well as its expansion. it to the east. let's take a listen. the responsibility should not be shifted onto the shoulders of russia, since it is nato that is making dangerous attempts to control ukrainian territory and is building opus military potential at our borders. russia is seriously interested in obtaining reliable, lengthy binding guarantees that needs would not expand east or deploy offensive weapon systems in states bordering on russia. but also very specifically, describes the concrete proposals made by both leaders. one particular positive
2:04 am
encouraging one will suggested by vladimir putin. now he said that may be the sanctions and limitations on diplomatic missions in the 2 nations could be removed . meaning it would be an end to tit for tat expulsions and to overburdened an undisturbed mission. and instead of the embassies on the diplomats getting back to walk as usual, here's what we heard from the biden administration. they talked about how biden raised concerns about the build up of russian forces near the border with ukraine and from there, talked about how the united states and its allies would respond with decisive economic and other measures if there was a military escalation. now biden called on to de escalate and to return to diplomacy, and he instructed the respective teams to continue dialogue on ukraine the same time we did hear from the national security advisor, jake sullivan. we still do not believe the president has made a decision. what present inviting did today with lay out very clearly the
2:05 am
consequences if he chooses to move that, you know, seems to fly in the face of some remarks that we've heard from other us officials. there are new sanctions to be imposed on russia that are currently in the word what we're talking about would amount to essentially isolating russia completely from the global financial system with all of the fall out that that would entail for russian business for the russian people for their ability to, to work and travel and trade. these are not run of the mill sanctions. what is being discussed is at the maximum end of the spectrum, or as i have call that the mother of all sanctions. so there seemed to be a desire on everyone's part for today's meeting to result in a de escalation. however, this hasn't stopped united states from talking of these new sanctions, and it hasn't stopped us media from playing up. this idea that there is somehow a russian threat or russian aggression. so quite an interesting day,
2:06 am
i were waiting for more information from both sides about what went on in the meeting between the 2 leaders. early we spoke, we spanks 1000000 cry. he's a member of the european parliament, he says that efforts to exclude russia from international dialogue would not do any good. it's always a good time to people talk with each day instead of talking about each other. and it shows that now the american specially but the one part recognize that we have reached a point where we need new solutions. otherwise, the, we run the risk of having a real dangerous situation and maybe a war. if we put russia out of every international connection, then we increase the risk of, of a war and not only ukraine, but also all other parts of the roads. we need to keep rush out within the
2:07 am
departments like we need to keep rush in the global for some peace and understanding. and if you put it out, then russia has no reason not to play a poet game, the americans today, they would ukraine, deal with china. and the problem is that on capital hill, both parties do not agree on almost nothing, but they agree on the external enemy. so because america is divided too far, they need external and a means that they have at least some thing they are united. meanwhile, joe biden is being branded, spineless by summit home for not pushing forward with sanctions. dogs in rushes, no steam to gas pipeline to germany, most vocally, so by republican senator ted cruz. this calamitous foreign
2:08 am
policy disaster is joe biden's fault. this is the direct consequence of joe biden, to surrender to vladimir putin on north stream to well, that tirade came as the draft u. s. defense budget for next year moved up to the senate. a number of anti rush measures were dropped in the house in his previous form. the bill included, abandon, americans, buying russian debt and sanctions on the stream to the senate will vote on the defense budget next week. on t, america host pence once as the removal of sanctions from the bill indicates the u. s. president doesn't want them the fairly big deal. consider the fact that obviously when the house version was written, as you mentioned, these sanctions were included. the senate version, they're not included, that's something called reconciliation, where essentially the bill has to match. and so it looks like those stations won't be there, which means that the biting administration is actually cutting ties with a lot of the rhetoric of the democratic party right now. in the u. s,
2:09 am
which is insistent upon having these kinds of sanction built into these us depend spending bills and it's pretty significant for a couple of reasons. one is because the president himself has been indicating for some time that he does not want to continue to push forward on things and specifically over north stream too, because of pressure. he's getting from germany, the germans don't like this idea. remember, this is not a unilateral measure on the russian part. russia and germany together are saying we want the pipeline. russia says we want to send oil and natural gas that pipeline. germany says we desperately need oil and natural gas pipeline. but it does as you know, all go back to this issue of ukraine. the idea is that by russia bypass the ukraine, that somehow this will be harmful to ukraine, or they'll be able to have greater leverage over ukraine. and so the rhetoric doesn't necessarily match the reality, and again, you have to sovereign nation insisting that this is something they both want and both need. and i think the us are finally backing away from this idea that they now recognize they can't stop it from happening well, sanctions,
2:10 am
despite the removal from the defense bill are a central to live american foreign policy. washington is just rubbed china the wrong way by imposing a diplomatic boy caught on the upcoming winter olympics. it also just imposed penalties and 14 officials and 4 entities in iran and syria, that over alleged rights abuses we discussed the role and impact of american sanctions with a panel of guests they agreed on the destructive nature essentially got. you've got a view in watkins here that it's us, it's american exceptionalism and, and supremacy. and they are basically, they're, they're, they're doing whatever they can. do, you know where we're married? it's a very arrogant policy. they use the sanctions. and if it really is a means to be stabilized, the other country sovereign nations and create economic hardships early, why do you think america is threatening to sanction russia for something that
2:11 am
a has not happened? and b will not happen according to the kremlin. but i think in one way the political move on, on that side. the other part is that we need it. we need a bogeyman and i think partially, there were luther are in once it's kind of like a rabid dog. you know, you start to laugh, shout in in different ways trying to project yourself and, and the only one policy we have is the thinking is this kind of destructive approach to international relations. but it's, it's just so silly because ultimately you saw the brand he was sitting on. how do you think the continental united states is going to survive? if it makes a devastated mess of the rest of the world? do you think any western power seriously believes russia is about to invade ukraine? you know, it's hard to understand the logic. what could moscow stand to gain from, from starting a war? well, i think that the western governments do well know that this is rather
2:12 am
a blame game. they make the public believe that russia is a real threat to the ukraine at the moment. russia is really in defense because they have to fear that a ukraine will become a part of the nato alliance. and this is, of course, a major threat to the geopolitical setting of russia being russia or. busy from swift would be the most extreme of measures deployed yet. it happened to iran devastated the economy there. is there any chance of washington pursuing what's being called a nuclear option based on their questionable diplomats that they potentially good. i think be very unwise move, very little impact, i think internally, externally it would, it would kind of back fire. i would think europeans would be very strongly lobbying against such an action. and if you're going to set off to do something like that,
2:13 am
presumably not the goal. well, let's just like opening a black hole up under the international banking system. we're seeing what's happening and showing with a grunt warbling and the property market possibly going down the drain. that happens. that's going to pull down the western banking system potentially. now stories coming from afghanistan to often negative. this will know opposite ray of hope during last summer's us to withdraw. the world was moved by scenes of desperate parents passing their babies over to western soldiers that over the cobble airport fence there were pleading with them to get the babies under the country. not all the children managed to escape, and some it seems even got lost in the celtic crowns of fleeing africans. their fate. in many cases is unclear, but all te spoke to one family that says it found an abundant baby amid the may have o master's blue shower. it was late at night when my brother asked me to help him
2:14 am
drive to the airport when he was leaving for the us. when we were there, there was a big crowd and chaos. everyone was pushing to get inside the airport. suddenly i saw this baby on the ground crying in pain. it was too hot and the baby was just wearing a shirt. i was confused. you see, i am a father and i love my children. so it was difficult for me to leave him there. he was dying, so i decided to pick him up. then i moved to each family i saw in the airport and showed them the baby and asked them whether the baby belonged to them. then i asked each mother to feed him because he was hungry, but no one agreed, his condition was deteriorating, so i took him to some water and put it on his body, washed him and changed his nappy. i waited until 4 pm to find his parents, but couldn't. i had just one bottle of water and i gave him a few drops when he was crying. because he was hungry, i was worried because his condition was not good. it was too hot and he was lying
2:15 am
under the scorching heat of the sun. then i contacted my wife and told her that my brother had already left. but i'm still stuck here because of a baby. i told her we are humans, and i can't leave this baby alone here while his parents are missing. i also taught my brother to leave, but i had to stay until i found the missing parents. now the family says that the child was in such a bad condition. they had to take into hospital living. he was a little over a month old when they found him and they have named him mohammed. they say they've grown to love him so much so that they would be willing to give him a home if his real parents aren't found. i looked off to him like my own baby. if we found his parents, we would not be able to keep you with us. of course we would hand him over to his real parents. i looked up to him like he was one of my own. i have 3 daughters, but i love him too much. he was about 40 days only when we met him. we have seen
2:16 am
difficult times with him. he is our soul and we love him too much. if his parents identify him, we will have no option but to hand him over to them. why below that? so if the parents of the child are unable to take him back, i'm ready to keep this baby with me. in fact, i would not be happy to hand over the baby because we found him there. so if they don't take him home, we will keep him with us. we love him. nodding gladly, only now are many children are believed to have been reunited successfully with their parents. it's not always the case and the mother and father, warm boy still desperately trying to find him. the number of organizations helping with that search. his name is a he'll of muddy. he was passed over the fence during the evacuations at campbell airport, so his parents fled to the united states. his father says he was working previously as a security guard at the u. s. embassy and afghanistan for 10 years. here's the picture of the child on the rights of the one on the left. that is the found boy that we
2:17 am
were just talking about found by the gen family. now we can't confirm the shepherd, it is hope they might in fact be the same child trying to establish whether it is the case. we'll let you know how things turn out germany is rolling on you cobra rules that become active as of wednesday, the measures severely restrict the unvaccinated banning them, in fact, from using public transport and going to bars and sports events. and with christmas just around the corner, a cut mean another festive low for businesses around the country. peter oliver explains that measures being brought in and that potential impact the new measures which come into play on wednesday, a going to cause quite a bit of disruption to anybody looking to go for a christmas drink as only those that have been vaccinated or can prove that they've recovered a going to be admitted to pubs and bars. you'll also only be able to have a drink while seated. that sounds, the rules are designed to prevent people from standing too close to one another.
2:18 am
the aim is to get to the point where it is okay to sit down to eat or drink something, but then there shouldn't be any wild standing around without any distance. we have had similarly designed regulations in the past, although they prefer a wild nights than just a few drinks with friends. things are also set to change berlin's might. club scene is world renowned. in fact, bill in tech knows currently applying for unesco world heritage status. but while you will be able to enter clubs, there will be no dancing under the new rules. anyone using public transport will have to show proof of vaccination recovery or a valid negative test. that includes those standing at the platform for any want going to sporting events. a maximum of $5000.00 will be allowed into outdoor stadiums and berlin, which will affect the capitals to elite football teams. union and heather. we need the significance reduction because we can see the events isn't the only place
2:19 am
people end up mixing in close proximity. there's public transport and the sausage, stunned after the game. christmas markets are only accessible with either print for vaccination or that you've recovered from coven 19 to g. as it's known here in germany and market stalls, i've seen a drop off in customers. it's a scene repeated not only in berlin, in mecklenburg for palm. anya, in the north sven works as a baker who sells his traditional stolen at christmas markets in the region. the drop off in customers because of restrictions means he selling considerably fewer of this batch worth some 10000 euro 9. why is going snow to the blas for open air settings is completely beyond my comprehension. customer's thing, the same. the kids had fun in the fresh air at the christmas party, but they weren't allowed on any merry go round or ferris wheel without their parents. i think that sat, i think it must requirement like last year would have been enough. we tried to sell
2:20 am
our christmas cake stolen online now. businesses and other shoppers buy a lot of stolen from us. when asked about government help, he isn't convinced enough has been dealt with the vaulted good question. the bridge in eighty's more hassle, been it's worth christmas. markets are worth around 5000000 euro to the german economy. this is of course the 2nd year that they faced disruption because of cov, at 19 german ministers. expect that the peak of this 4th wave of the virus is going to hit pretty soon. and these markets are going to face even more disruption because of restrictions that are being put in place. peter, all of a r t. berlin. now in just under 2 hours time at russian rockets will be taking a japanese space tories into all bits. abberly her stay on the international space station will bring you the full story on my journey coming up after this short break it to me.
2:21 am
ah ah.
2:22 am
join me every thursday on the alex salmon? sure. i'll be speaking to guess from the world of politics. sport, business. i'm sure business. i'll see you then. ah ah, we'll go back. a russian village in the rural tiger, also known as the russian area, 51. it is the source of many myths and legends, the locals claim they live in place of strange powers of normal activity. even you f o landings one, the 100000 tourists visit the place every year to see for themselves. the st. constantine rush cough along to take a look are right in front of russia's area,
2:23 am
$51.00, and nonetheless zone in the year old taiga. that according to forbes, is among the 8 best places in our planet to hon. 4 extra reps. her it are numerous rewards of mysterious fine objects of different sizes and forms rolling balls and human shape figures. there are people who claimed that they felt like they're floating in the air or heard some weird out of the world sounds while exploring this area. while to be honest with you, i take these stories with renaissance, yet this place does have something special about it. there used to be a pagan, altered an iron mill, a good la kam, and now is just an unassuming russian village in the middle of nowhere that still keeps fascinating. people from across the world. ah, my lord came into prominence in the late 1980 thanks to sylvia geologist, immune by children who had allegedly discovered a large circular impression. and no, he couldn't find a better explanation than that. it was
2:24 am
a u. f o landing site. right now we're hen. we're to said to be one of the most active parts of the ha malika anomalous own. and we're gonna repeat an experiment held by a group of you fully just a few years ago. what they did was they put a watch into a thermos bottle, then they left it. and when they came back, they found a wash, still taking only it was 5 hours 26 minutes behind, as if time stopped inside the thermos back bottle. so i'm going to do the same thing with my watch. and i said, well, we'll see what happens. the my o my phone. yes just i didn't so much didn't e and she saw i do not sitting hunched it as we go deeper in the woods. the group starts to communicate with the novelist out. it's not that i didn't try ice food honory birch tree next to would stalker? sas is a portal between the 2 world. yes. nothing happened to then he pulled out
2:25 am
a thermal image or to show me a strange data with behind me up were by the only feeling i had was this severe hunger after spending 6 hours out in the woods while since we had to tell spotted anything significant that would likely prove that this area is truly anomalous. so we have decided to ha, come back to the forest after midnight. all joking aside, this was a bit scary, especially when at least 6 or 8 people yelled altogether that the c glowing balls i think is a, it was go dark and the lights were so weak, our cameras couldn't capture it, but i saw the light. yet what it was is up to the lake. well, the group is going to split over what they have seen. so say that they are indeed shaw the white, the tiny shining,
2:26 am
shimmering balls and the woods. so say that this is probably just the village or maybe your railroad station, whatever. what been out in the wild forest, incomplete darkness gets your imagination going? oh, it was just the snow. improve decided there is a source of the terry got our junior bite and it's worth it together around a camp fire. 43rd year old fashioned people started to follow the trans to the ominous sound of a tambourine. ah no said to check what has happened to my watch. it turned out that the watch i left in the for 6 hours ago was one minute behind me one minute and 6 hours is a lot to me so you believe this is donna jones? yes. of course, there are rational explanations why the watch was behind for why the mechanism
2:27 am
could have slowed down in the cold. but it's not the point. if you genuinely believe in anomalies, you will finally see one of these people have come to the zone already believing that the re something out there. and with that mindset, they spend a truly fun weekend. so at least one me, 3 thought why this unassuming russian village in the middle of nowhere keeps attracting people like magnet ah, ah, ah, now face tourism is all the rage at the moment, at least among the super rich in an hour and a half time ross cosmos rocket will be whisking the latest billionaire to the holiday destination of a lifetime, namely the international space station id is donny armstrong. lose at how good, by the way, potentially for the rest of his one day space. exploration and russia is
2:28 am
a long story. live affair and nowhere is that more apparent than here in the city of by can or. busy in the heart of the cars accept in the middle of over 2000 kilometers of harsh and foreign land rocket like this. i use model here, blasting in some of the cities calling cut space. travel is speciality ah 6 decades ago russian cosmonaut eureka gary set often the by can or cause my job to become the 1st man in orbit and paved away for human space exploration. now on december, the 8th japanese billionaire, you saki mays, iowa, will usher in a new era of space travel by becoming the 1st ever space tourist on a rock cosmo, slight dedicated entirely to commercial travel. now ms hours 12 day stay in space will set off from exactly the same spot as you gardens and the by can or cosmic job
2:29 am
. and this is the so use a mass rock it will ferry maze. our way into space to the i assess from here at the by can or cause my job. now it was built for to 6 months in space, but we'll spend only a fraction by around 12 days and will differ from other flights in a fact that it won't have emission. of course, the whole point of the project is space, tourism. it will be complete with an m said mays. i was signature on the nose. that's what a rumored $20.00 to $40000000.00 will get you a personalized rocky and ride into space. not bad if you can afford it. now it may have seemed on thinkable in gregory's day to literally pay your way into space, but maybe with every corner of the world already discovered the only logical small step for man was to go out of this world. and with the m. s. 20 mesa, we're andros cosmos. opening avenues into orbit for the elite now used to say in 60 years time space tourism like this won't be available to the every man here in the
