in such a situation, it's remarkably civilized here, buttons accused by republicans of surrendering to vladimir putin by dropping russia punishments from the defense bill. while democrats profiting what they were calling the mother of all sanctions targeting moscow. who comes after the president of russia in the us? how crisis tool is triggered by tensions of crime? in other news, we speak to an afghan family that found a loss toddler during august. cale take us with the door when desperate parents were handing children to western soldiers in the bid to get the mountains off against them to what the shout suddenly i saw this baby on the ground crying in pain, was too hot. the baby was just wearing shirts, it was difficult for me to leave him behind germany, pan the unvaccinated from public places from wednesday, including balls,
4:01 am
public transport and sports events. meaning that they 2nd less than merry christmas and the road could be in store for many in the country. ah, oh hey, they're going to have your company. this is on teens, finished. joe biden is being branded, spineless for not rushing forward with sanctions to target rushes, no steam to gas pipeline, to germany. the most vocal criticism coming from republican senator ted cruz this calamitous foreign policy disaster is jo biden's fault. this is the direct consequence of joe biden. surrendered of latter mere potent on nord stream to well, the tirade came as
4:02 am
a draft to us defense sponge for next year. moved up to the senate, a number of anti russian measures were dropped in the house and its previous form. the billet included a ban on americans buying russian debt and sanctions on the stream to the senate votes on the defense budget next week. anti america has been sworn, says the removal of sanctions from the bill indicates the american president doesn't want them that the fairly big deal. consider the fact that obviously when the house version was written, as you mentioned, the 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 biden administration is actually cutting ties with a lot of the rhetoric of the democratic party right now in the u. s. which is insistent upon having these kinds of sanction built into the u. s. 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 the sanction,
4:03 am
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 in 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 when it comes up to the russian. and us lead us out online crisis talks as tensions of ukraine and nato expansion mount after some additional pleasantries. bon, apparently rum top talk about sanctions against russia in case of war from on how
4:04 am
that meeting the down state side who's kelly morbid. 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 deploy messy, 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 putin has made a decision. what present inviting did today with lay out very clearly the 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 official. there are new sanctions to be imposed on russia that are currently in the work. these are not run of the mill sanctions. what is being discussed is at the maximum
4:05 am
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, i were waiting for more information from both sides about what went on in the meeting between the 2 leaders. well, let's go back to our top story on the crisis talks between the russian and us leaders to discuss the latest developments on joined live. now by for reagan bindy, who is the professor of political science at the university of rome regatta. good morning to professor, welcome this morning. first of all, is this important just to, to see these 2 leaders of great nations getting together and having a conversation. and he's a good start, at least, that's an excellent start. we,
4:06 am
we badly needed the us and russia start talking to each other for reason so that it's absolutely positive. we can never really get too far away from the thoughts of donald trump and he has weighed in commenting on this top. just want to have a quick listen to what donald trump had to say. vladimir putin looks at our pathetic surrender in afghanistan, leaving behind dead soldiers, american citizens, and $85000000000.00 worth of military equipment. he then looks at biden, he's not worried. i mean, he's a despising about joe biden consistently, and he says the buttons peeling in the into insignificance. basically in the shadow of poor nissan, just because he wants to put him down as his political opponent. or do you think there's anything to what he says is their attention? anything that trump says really to be that to be very frank that been said is a bit of both. he clearly wants to run again in 2024. so
4:07 am
anything helps. and i think is sort of the 3rd that he wasn't able to do anything really with russia. and until it's a bit of both when america is talking about punishing russia, it often seems to go into high per billy. and we're there again, talk of the mother of all sanctions. in reality, how far do you think the us would? there's a little tool, but in reality, how far would the, the us really go in re out reality when it comes to punishing russia. the playing clears, it has been very unwilling to lay out the details and it's, i mean, i'm seeing if against use the word and i says that the both put in and biden are old style politicians, and these is, is
4:08 am
a positive assessment of them. so they know the rules of the foreign policy and, and this is all, this is old a way to test each other. this is only a way to san senior. each other. there are things that each of them want out of the outer and, and so the sanctions refresh giving conscience is threatened to say if you move into ukraine will harm you know, knowing that if it was russian was into your brain. the us there is, isn't much the him do besides high beside sanctions, but at the same time, i don't think that putting wants to move into ukraine. you don't. so it is on its own side, sending a message for mike, maybe he's using even just the, the specter of that to his advantage of putin has reported last biden, for reliable and fern legal guarantees that nato will not expand for the race.
4:09 am
that's been the common complaints coming from russia. ne to expansion that's been been seen over the years. it's added unreasonable thing to ask for guaranteeing company. this is a very reasonable and everything goes back to the 1st enlightenment of nature. and then president clinton promised. then president, yes, seeing that natal would not enlarge farther. right. and especially farther east, as we know, it did enlarge a little bit farther after, after those 1st enlargements and russia has been unhappy about it. but the liberated but georgia and ukraine are completely different thing also because george and ukraine is a completely different thing as compared to say hungry or, or, or poland and so on and so forth. so there was in diplomatic agreement that
4:10 am
an angel will not go farther east. and normally in foreign policy, diplomatic agreements are respected. and in this case, a separate a little bit after i did state pretend disagreements every tuesday, which my own research will your opinions. every single european actually configure it was there. so at this point, put in does not trust the ward anymore if you want illegal commitment and, and he's right and asking it to be that different to us and, and ukraine made it clear. the suggestion is that russia's poise to invade the patrol damn, as the potential aggressive and putting all the kind of moral blame on that. there's also the possibility this could be basing coming from the ukrainian side. and that's what put in is alleging you saying that care of is engaging and what he called destructive behavior. with the aim of dismantling the minsk agreements. i baiting them staring up a rest to try and create a problem. i mean,
4:11 am
where do you see the truth? it's hard to know exactly what is going on. so it's hard to know and you know, remember that the merge is my gist of the old area to the dog. and to be frank like every friday. so i think they're responsible for every possible side . the responsibility on the train is on the rations on the americans. because on the american side you see the matching on of the, the west funds and an army on, on the russian side of your train. but the russians to the mashing of weapon and supplies on the ukrainian side of the border. so their responsibilities on all sides, but certainly the ukrainians are the ones that have been playing with the most to maximize their own benefit. really appreciate it. the chance to speak to you, thanks for your thoughts, my guess. federal bindy who's a professor political science at the university of rome. 2 of the gods, a professor. thank you. thank you for having me. no sanctions remain
4:12 am
a central to live us foreign policy with us under secretary of state for political affairs, victoria noon. and once again, threatening russia with heavy economic punitive measures what we are 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. washington is also just rub shondra of the wrong way, imposing a diplomatic boy on the upcoming winter olympics. in addition, it has imposed just recently penalties on 14 officials and 4 entities in iran and syria. that's over alleged rights abuses. we discuss the role in the impact of us sanctions with a panel of guests who agreed on the destructive nature. essentially, you gotta, you gotta view and walk into that. it's us, it's american exceptionalism and, and supremacy. and they are basically, they're,
4:13 am
they're, they're doing whatever they can do, you know where we're married, it's a very arrogant policy and they use the sanctions. and if it really is a means to destabilize the other country, sovereign nations and create that can make hardships early. why do you think america is threatening to sanction russia for something that a has not happened and b will not happen according to the kremlin? 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 lash out in, in different ways, trying to protect yourself. and the only one problem we have is the thinking is this kind of destructive approach to international relations. but it's,
4:14 am
it's just so silly because ultimately you saw enough the brand you are sitting on, or 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 a blame game. they make the public belief 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. cutting russia off. busy from swift would be the most extreme of measures deployed yet. it happened to iran
4:15 am
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, 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. uncles if that happens, that's going to pull down the western banking system, potentially germany is rolling out new coded rules that become active from wednesday. the measures severely restrict the unvaccinated, they banned them from using public transport them from going to bars and sports
4:16 am
events that we've christmas around the corner. it could mean another festival low for businesses right around the country. peter oliver explains the measures being brought in and the 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. 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 will heritage status. but while
4:17 am
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 hatha. we need this significance reduction because we can see the events isn't the only place 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
4:18 am
drop off in customers because of restrictions means he selling considerably fewer of this batch worth, some 10000 euro 9 way spin snow to the bloss for open air settings is completely beyond my comprehension. customers think 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 so our christmas cake stolen on line. now. businesses and other shoppers, by a lot of stolen from us. when asked about government hell, he isn't convinced enough has been done with the broader good question, the bridge in eighty's, more hassle than it's worth christmas markets are worth around 5000000000 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
4:19 am
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 during last summer's u. s. troop withdrawal. the world was moved by scenes of desperate parents passing their babies over to west and soldiers over the cobbler, airport fence, pleading with them to get them out of the country. not all of those children did managed to get out. some of fortunately were even lost in a celtic mass of fleeing afghans. this is so hail, ark, mardi. he was one of those carried along by the crowds at cobble airport. his mother and father are still desperately trying to locate him with a number of organizations helping in the search, one of which says that they have a lead. in this case, sir hale's parents fled to the u. s. back in august. that anti has spoken to an afghan family that says it found an abandoned baby amid the man at carpal airport.
4:20 am
they gave him the name mohammad, and say that he's become like one of their own. i love any brother mohammed. he's to important to me and will never hand him over to anyone. my system shall. it was late at night when my brother asked me to help him 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, 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 there 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 them, and changed his nappy. i waited until 4 pm to find his parents,
4:21 am
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 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 told my brother to leave, but i had to stay until i found the missing parents. now take a look at these pitches on the rights that is the missing boy. so haylock mardi on the left is the child found and cared for by the gen family. we can't confirm it yet, but it's thought it may in fact been same. and one child there the you are the eh, jans say that when they found mohammed he was in such a bad way. they had to take him to hospital. they estimate, he was just over a month old when they found him and they said that he grown to love him so much
4:22 am
that they be willing to give him a home permanently. if his real parents aren't found. i looked up 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 4 to days only when we met him. we have seen 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 am 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, we will keep him with us. we love him nodding gladly or we are trying to establish whether so haylock, marty, and mohammed are indeed the same child and have got in touch with the missing toddlers parents as well as the organization leading the search. we'll let you know
4:23 am
how that turns out. course our little boy wasn't the only one left standing thousands of people fling the taliban in. afghanistan were allegedly were left behind with no help from the british foreign office. mainly because of a lack of staff. that's a claim coming from a civil servant whistleblower and a damning reporting which she says that even pets were given priority passage over people out of carbo. i estimate fewer than 5 percent of these people have received any assistance. it is clear that some of those left behind have since been murdered by the taliban. her majesty's government, therefore transported animals which were not at risk of harm at the direct expense of evacuating british nationals and people at risk of imminent mazda, including interpreters who had served with the british army. the civil servant also claims that there were thousands of letters with calls for help. the majority being completely ignored. downing street denies the allegations. uncles them entirely untrue. the deputy p n. at the time,
4:24 am
foreign secretary says that the government was doing everything it could. i regularly checked that we were properly resourced. we did everything we could, but i found that some form of process again, otherwise you're not going to be letting those who are most at need of your help. we're talking about a guy who left universally an average civil service, who's got no knowledge of the grandest, our stamp or no knowledge of mine. we rehearsed 15th surgeon. we're going to rehearse over 2030 to the next 5 years, or 33rd napkins. we employed a guardian surgeon, musket, austrian, and anything, yas, counsel was, they asked us to go was a coalition 15 was found to help them fight to come along. we whether we were, if you were by the afghan people, we were here that we were spot on. we had to tamp or taliban get paid to shoot against. we were abused. the afghan courts refused to acknowledge biometrics, municipal dna, not a single taliban went to jill. and it was a corruption after corruption. we do not oh afghans a single thing. despite that,
4:25 am
a former african interpreter we spoke to, he says, in comparison with other countries, evacuations, the u. k definitely mishandled the crisis. it was a very complex situation in afghanistan. it was a chaos. however, it could have been managed much, much better way to, to evacuate as many of those partners in interpreters or, or who have served the british government in frontline, in the past 20 years in war against terrorism. however, all those who are trying to reach people in the government their day, the response was very slow, and for many it was too late. i've provided a list of almost 700 of those very in need. are partners of us. so pretty much are they, the government has do not have an excuse of not processing beard applications. as soon as possible you, case evacuation process was a much,
4:26 am
much poorer. i managed compared to many other european countries. we have contacted the british foreign office about the whistle blowers claims we await their response . now that the russian village is cindy old tiger locals that claim this is a place of strange powers of abnormal activity, even u. f. o landings. and the not the only ones, because more than a $100000.00 tourists go there each year looking to find this unties consulting and ross cough went along to look for himself. you can catch his travelogue in full. on ortiz youtube channel, we have decided to ha, come back to the forest. after midnight. all jokes aside, this was a bit scary, especially when at least 6 or 8 people yelled altogether that the sea glowing balls, peak is looking bravo, bravo. i thought it was so dark and the lights were so weak,
4:27 am
our camera couldn't capture it, but i saw the light yet what it was is up to the lake while the group was going to see what it over, what they have seen, some say that they indeed saw the white tiny shining shimmering brawls and the woods. so say that this is probably just the village or maybe or railroad station. whatever it was, beat out in the wild forest in complete darkness. gets your imagination going. oh, it was just to snow. now, just over an hour ago, russia successfully launched a rocket from the bank. no, kuzma drum in kazakhstan, carrying to japanese space tourists, say, billionaire and his assistant montes, danny armstrong, reports on how the revenge came about. i just last to go here, the bike, no cost joan, so the so use m. s 20 flight takes off. transporting ye sark who maze our to the i
