hold the headlines here or not. he international. joe biden is accused by republicans of surrendering to vladimir putin by dropping russia punishments from a defense build while democrats are dropping. what they're calling the mother of old sanctions called getting multiple it all comes off to the president of russia and the u. s. held crisis talks ultimately triggered by tensions over ukraine. also in the program we speak to an afghan family that found a last puddle during august's. chaotic us withdrawal when desperate parents were handing the children to western soldiers in a bit to just get them out of afghanistan, do it. and suddenly i saw this baby on the ground crying in pain. it was too hot and the baby was just wearing shirts. so it was difficult for me to leave him there . and germany bands, the unvaccinated, from public places from wednesday,
6:01 am
that includes bars, public transport, and sporting events ah, wednesday and 2 pm and a very snowy moscow. a lot of stories for you today, this program coming to you live from the russian capital. this of course is auntie international. so joe biden is being branded as spineless for not pushing forward with sanctions targeting rushers, north stream to gas pipeline to germany. the most vocal criticism vote coming from a republican senator that of mister 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 that tirade came as the draft
6:02 am
u. s. defense budget for next year. move up to the senate. a number of anti russian measures were dropped in the house in his previous form of the bill included a ban on americans buying russian debt and sanctions on those stream to the senate will vote on the defense budget next week. and ot america, host of n swan states, the removal of sanctions from the build indicates that 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, 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 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 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 sanction,
6:03 am
specifically over nor stream to 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 in germany together are saying we want the pipeline. russia says we want to send oil in natural gas that pipeline. germany says we desperately need oil in natural gas pipeline. but it does as you know, all go back to the 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 u. s. finally, backing away from this idea that they now recognize they can't stop it from happening. now, it comes off of the russian on us leaders held online crisis talk size, pensions over ukraine, and nato expansion. continue to mount off to some initial pleasantries bite and apparently ramp top talk about sanctions again to russia in the event of a war of
6:04 am
a more and how it all went down. his art is, caleb, here is 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 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 officials. 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
6:05 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 stop 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. the frank giving conscience is threatened to say if you move into ukraine will hiring, you know, knowing that if it were russian was into your brain, the us there is, isn't much the him do besides high besides sanctions. but at the same time, i don't think that putting wants to move into ukraine. he is also at his own and his own side, sending a message. there was
6:06 am
a diplomatic agreement that nature will not go farther east. and, and normally in foreign policy, diplomatic agreements are respected. and in this case, a separate a little bit after united states pretend disagreements ever existed. which in my own research with europe, ian, every single european actually, it was there. so at this point, put in does not trust the ward anymore. i. he wants illegal commitment and and he's right in asking it to be that a frank. well obviously sanctions remain central tool of us foreign policy with us under secretary of state for political affairs, victoria newland, 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,
6:07 am
to work and travel and trade. washing has also just rubbed china out the wrong way to by imposing a diplomatic boy caught on the upcoming winter olympics. it's also just imposed penalties on 14 officials and 4 entities and iran and syria over alleged rights abuses. we discussed the role and impact of american sanctions with a panel of guests to agreed on what is basically a 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, 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 countries sovereign nations and create that can make hardships early. why do you think america is threatening to sanction russia
6:08 am
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 they, 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, 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 at blame game
6:09 am
. they make of 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 run devastated the economy there. is there any chance at washington pursuing what's being called a nuclear option based on their questionable diplomats that they potentially good. i would 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
6:10 am
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 under the international banking system. we're seeing what's happening and showing with a grunt warbling in the property market, possibly going down the drain. uncles. if that happens, that's going to pull down the western banking system potentially. i sent past the i here in moscow during last summer's u. s. troop withdrawal. the world was moved by scenes of desperate parents passing their babies to western soldiers, pleading for them just to be taken out of the country. and fortunately, some of those babies were lost in the chaos at cobble airport. let us show you to hail our commodity. he was one of those carried along by the crowds. his mother and father are still desperately trying to find him with a number of organizations helping, one of which says that they may have a lead. in this case, mister hale's parents fled the united states back in august. however, apparently there is now a glimmer of hope or
6:11 am
r t. a spoken to one afghan family who say they found a baby in the may him at cobble airport. and our contact on the ground says it is that very baby last by the mighty family, or they named him mohammed and say he's become one of their i love any brother mohammed, he's template and 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,
6:12 am
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 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. or i just her mom and have a look at these are 2 pictures are on the right is the missing boy. so hail are commodity. while on the left is a child found and cared for by the jan family that was not been confirmed. reports addressed, they are the one and the same child. meanwhile, the john to say when they found mohammed, he was in such a bad way. they had to take him to hospital the estimate. he was just over
6:13 am
a month old when they found him. the afghan man who found the child says he's now in touch with the apparent legal intellectually, we kept the baby and contacted many people to find the para. we contacted the b, b, c, and many others, but failed to find them. then we uploaded his pictures on social media sites like facebook. later, some relatives of a missing baby and barrack shan province contacted us and told us that the parents of the baby are looking for their child. when they saw the images, they recognize him, but they didn't know the whereabouts of the parents. finally i found the contact details of the father of this baby i called and told him about his missing baby and asked him to send me the pictures of his child. so i could verify that he was the real father. then he sent me the pictures and we confirmed your son is with us, don't worry. his father was so happy to learn about his missing son. we are so trying to establish whether so hail amadi and muhammad are the same child. we've also got in touch with the missing child's parents as well as the organization
6:14 am
leading the search a. meanwhile, the jan's family say they've grown to love the baby so much so they're willing to give him a home. if is real, parents are not 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's 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 the fellow so nice? 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 sir. if they don't take him on it, we will keep him with us. we love him, not im glad germany is rolling out new covered rules that are active from wednesday
6:15 am
at these measures are severely restrict the unvaccinated binding them from using public transport and going to bars and sporting events. and with christmas right around the corner, it could mean another festival low of a businesses all over the country. as he is, peter oliver explains the measure, spring 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 lance, as 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. for those, they prefer a wild night than just
6:16 am
a few drinks with friends. things are also set to change. berlin's mike 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, that 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 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
6:17 am
a scene repeated not only in berlin, in mecklenburg from 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's selling considerably fewer of this batch worth. some 10000 euro 9. why it's been snow to the blast 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. were fairies will without their parents. i think that's sad. i think it must requirement like last year would have been enough money. we tried to sell our christmas cake stolen online. now. businesses and other shoppers buy a lot of stolen from us. when asked about government hell, he isn't convinced enough is being dealt with of all the quick question. the bridge in eighty's more hassle been it's worth christmas. markets are worth around
6:18 am
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 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 cal. i had a few here on the program on our fees. rational outrage, boyles in the u. k. of the video. mergers suggesting a celebration was held in downing street last year is by massive cope to restrictions, masks and repeated government denials. a full story and more after the break and ah ah ah ah ah
6:19 am
ah ah, with all ah, with oh seemed wrong when i just don't want you to see out d. c, because of the answer kit and engagement equals the trail went so many find themselves will to part we, she's to look for common ground. oh,
6:20 am
i 20 points down here in moscow. good to have you with us today. thousands of people fleeing the taliban in afghanistan while they were fleeing. of course, in the past couple, amongst a lot of them apparently what allegedly left behind without much help from the british foreign office party. it was mainly due to a lack of staff that's according to a civil servant whistleblower and a dining report in which he says even pets were given priority passage out of cobble 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 hom, that the direct expensive evacuating british nationals and people at risk of imminent mazda, including interpreters who had served with the british army. while the civil stop
6:21 am
and also claims that there were thousands of letters with calls for help, but the majority were completely ignored. as we understand, the downing street has denied the allegations, calling them entirely untrue. the deputy prime minister who was then foreign secretary, said the government was doing everything. it could i regularly checked that we were properly resourced. we did everything we could, but you have found that some form of process again, otherwise you're not going to be letting those who a nice that need of your help. we're talking about a guy who left university an answer to civil service. who's got no knowledge of the grind, wisconsin or no knowledge of mine. we rehearsed 15th surgeon. we're going to rehearse over 2030 to the next 5 years. us 3030. now because we employed a goody 30 musket that street and anything the afghans who was, they asked us to go as a coalition fifteenish found to help inside the taliban. we went there. we were ignored by the afghan people, we were here that we were spot on. we had the tan,
6:22 am
both taliban get paid to shoot against. we were abused. the afghan courts refused to acknowledge biometrics, community on dna, not a single telephone. went to jill, and it was a corruption of the corruption we do not owe afghans a single thing. well, i just my whole that a former afghan interpreter we spoke to says that in comparison with other countries, evacuations or the u. k did a pretty poor job, it was a very current 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 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 up there they did. it once was very slow, and for many it was too late. i've provided a list of almost 700 of those. i'm very in need of partners office. so
6:23 am
pretty much are they, the government has do not have any excuse of not processing bid applications. as soon as possible you can evacuation process was much, much poorer. i managed compared to many other european countries. we have contacted the british foreign office about the whistle blow as claims. we'll let you know what kind of response we get. now the all micron covered bearing is not the only thing surging in the world. so is the wealth of the vaccine makers. the share price is of pfizer and madonna have soared by $10000000000.00 amid concerns over this new strain. and while the world health organization has repeatedly called on those companies to share their vaccine licenses, to poor nations and to help with the pandemic, it seems to pharma jones just don't share that view. the waiver proposal is based on the incorrect notion that vaccine access is limited due to current levels of
6:24 am
manufacturing. the industry is already well on its way to produce enough vaccines for the entire world by the middle of next year. if you let the current industry our industry now we're car and do what they need to do, i think that will be sufficient. it will take different companies so much longer. india and south africa have been pushing the world trade organization to wave intellectual property rights for covert vaccines and treatments. that's because most jobs go to wealthy countries rather than the developing ones, where the vaccination rates are still very low. and they'll be re, chose, director general says the current policies of the companies as well. they're unacceptable. low and low and middle income countries are not the 2nd or 3rd priority. the health workers, older people, and other at risk groups have the same right to be protected. i will not stay silent when the companies and countries that control the global supply of vaccines think the world's poor should be satisfied with leftovers. the pandemic certainly
6:25 am
proven lucrative for the big pharma bosses, especially since the mac on barrier was discovered. madonna's ceo alone added more than $800000000.00 to his personal well as the company has skyrocketed since last week. the director of global justice. now nick did and questions how companies can put profits before global health when you're talking about life saving drugs. when you're talking about medicine, the people that are going to make a difference between life and death and going to prevent enormous suffering. and i don't personally believe that they should be business opportunities. but sadly, what we've seen is the richest countries on earth, and sticking on frank things that they're never going to need with no plan to even donate them. meanwhile, blocking the ability of other countries to set up and protect their manufacturing bases. so they may be able to make that road vaccines and coming in at the world trade organization to prevent a way for intellectual property, have in my country refaxed and coming up to 70 percent of the population. in parts
6:26 am
of the african continent. you know that the figure is as low as 3 percent. i mean some of the countries in southern africa where it's the leaf the on the chrome and merged and was approach any 3 percentage of the population vaccinated. one in 10 health workers in the african countries, continents for vaccinations, but simply can't be right. at least in london are examining new evidence that downing street staff park seated up last year during the whole cove. it locked down 5 minutes to boris johnson denies any rules were broken yet or recently most video shows to staff members joking about the christmas party citrix, suggesting it did certainly happen, shot it, it was actually takes a look. well, some are even saying this could be the final nail in the coffin, full bars, johnson, the prime minister as he's now being accused of lying. it comes off to this video footage, show top officials in downing street, joking about a so called
6:27 am
a legit christmas party that happened. wait for it last year during the cove, its set of restrictions, his the itv exclusive interview direct moses are at home is fictional policy was a business meeting and it was not associated. so that exchange happened in a rehearsal of the press briefings that were happening quite regularly at the time . it was a few days off to the so called party was thought of taking place or the wine and cheese event as she puts it. now if all of this is true, it would have completely contravene the strict cobit restrictions. the u. k. london in particular was in tier 3 cove. it restrictions, which meant no indoor mixing as she then went on in that video to say the room was absolutely packed. now the day off to this party london then went into the next
6:28 am
phase of the private restrictions, almost a total lockdown, and christmas was entirely cancelled. so multiple sol to the same. this parties certainly did happen at boris johnson and number 10 saying it absolutely it did not . now we contacted number 10 for comment of course, surprise, surprise. they get to get back to us on that one. but things have now escalated so much that the metropolitan police have now wait. and then looking into the footage, they're trying to gather evidence, whether or not to consider it to investigate it or not. just to mention though, here in the united kingdom, 2000 people have been prosecuted for breaching covert restrictions throughout the pandemic. so that's the sort of a statistics that we're really comparing all of this against. meanwhile, opposition political parties that saying the prime as time is up, we have number 10, government in london breaching it wouldn't cove it rules and then joking opposed to on the video. it really isn't acceptable. and i have to see unfortunately on the
6:29 am
basis of this behavior, because it's not just about this. if it's a pattern of a prime minister repeatedly lies a prime minister, the company trusted, he should cool. and he should go and i government broke the rules. they parted about the laughing about it, the treating the public with contempt. the promised nice to step up except what happened. i apologize. remember this isn't the 1st time that something like this has happened. dominic cummings, the prime minister's former chief aide. well, he travelled 270 miles from london to durham, to visit barnard, cost. we remember that saga last year. then of course, the full man, how secretary at mac hancock founded an intimate embrace? both of these talk politicians breaching the coven restriction rules. if true, of course, now the prime minister today will be facing the house of commons and prime ministers questions. very interesting. what he will be is saying then will he stick
6:30 am
with the number 10 line? and if he does and is found to be lying, well that is contempt of parliament. so laid down the line or maybe not so late to down the line. we could see this getting very dramatic indeed, but on a less political note more and an emotional level, the reality really is many people here in the united kingdom were in very heart wrenching position, some deciding not to go and even visit their dying mother, holding that dying mother's hand. meanwhile, seemingly the tories were out partying. yeah, that story turning into a heated debate online at auto dot com, check out the u. k. or the op ed section for more details on that when it's half off, they are right now here on the russian capital, we return with more of your news at the top of yeah ah.
