salus will safari, we choose to look so common ground. a top headlines here when our scenes national joe biden is accused by republicans of surrendering to vladimir putin by dropping russia punishments from a defense bill. while democrats a drafting what they're calling the mother of old sanctions targeting moscow, it all comes off to the president of russia and the u. s. held crisis told, triggered by tensions over ukraine. also in the program, we speak to an afghan family that found a loss toddler during august's, chaotic us withdrawal when desperate parents were handing that children to western soldiers just to get them out of afghanistan. suddenly i saw this baby on the ground crying in pain. it was too hot, the baby was just wearing a shirt, so it was difficult for me to leave him that also germany band,
7:01 am
the unvaccinated from public places from wednesday, that includes bars, public transport and sporting events. ah, by mid afternoon on wednesday here at moscow, this is auntie international. a very welcome see here. joe biden is being branded as spineless for not pushing forward with sanctions targeting rushers nor stream to gas pipeline to germany. at the most vocal criticism, what's 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 mir potent on nord stream to tirade came as the drops us
7:02 am
defense budget for next year. moved up to the senate, a number of anti russian measures were dropped in the house and its previous form. the bill included a bio on americans buying russian debt and sanctions are no stream to the senate all vote on the defense budget next week. and i'll see america host have been swan . so the removal of sanctions from the bill indicates the american president just 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 sanctions 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 sanction,
7:03 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 in 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 u. s. and finally, backing away from this idea that they now recognize they can't stop it from happening. it all comes off the russian and us leaders held crisis talks as tensions over ukraine and nato expansion continue to mount office on initial pleasantries biden. apparently ramped up talk about a sanctions against russia in case of war. and since that time,
7:04 am
a u. s. officials have seemingly been proposing any ideas on their minds. i would not rule out american troops on the ground. we don't do, you know, we don't rule out 1st use nuclear action isn't pretty concerning woods right there. but with more details on the official position of the u. s. and how the meeting went down state side. he's our correspondent caleb mob. 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 dialog on ukraine the same time we did hear from the national security advisor,
7:05 am
jake sullivan. we still do not believe the president putin has made a decision. what president inviting did today was laid 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 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, we're 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
7:06 am
you move into ukraine will hire, 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 in diplomatic agreement that nature would not go harder east. and, and normally in foreign policy, diplomatic agreements, i respect it. and in this case, a separate a little bit afterwards, united states pretend, disagreement ever existed, which he my, on research with europeans, every single european actually come for him. it was there. so at this point, put in does not trust the ward anymore, and he wants illegal commitment and and he is writing asking, needs to be they frank assumptions do remain a central tool of u. s. foreign policy with us under secretary of stateful political affairs,
7:07 am
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 fallout that that would entail for russian business for the russian people, for their ability to, to start from or shout in different ways trying to protect yourself. and the only one policy we have with is this kind of destructive approach. so international relations, but it's, it's just so silly because ultimately you sort of the brunt you are sitting on. how do you think that 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 a by to invade ukraine? you know, it's hard to understand the logic. what could moscow stand to gain from,
7:08 am
from starting a war? well, i think that the western governments do well know that this is a rather lame 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 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 or. busy 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 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
7:09 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 and the property market, possibly going down. the drain. uncles, if that happens, that's going to pull down the western banking system, potentially officer in moscow during last summer's us troop withdrawal of 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, unfortunately, at least one child was lost in the chaos at cobble airport. and so i'll show you so haylock muddy. he was one of those carried along by the crowd. his mother and father are still desperately trying to find him with a number of organizations helping, one of which says that they have a lead in this case. so hales parents fled to the united states that was back in august. apparently though, now there is
7:10 am
a glimmer of hope or to your spoken to one. ask on family who say they found a baby amid the mayhem and the contact on the ground says it is the very baby lost by the commodity family. they named him mohammed and say he's become one of their own. i love any brother mohammed. he's template and to me and will never hand him over to any one. much 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,
7:11 am
so i took him to some water and put it on his body, washed him and changed his nappy. i waited until for 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. let's i show you a couple of pictures right now on the right is the missing boys. so haylock, maddie, well on the left is a child found and cared for by the john family. there was not been confirmed. reports suggest they are the one and the same. meanwhile, the jan's say when they found mohammed he was in such a bad condition. they had to take him to hospital. yeah,
7:12 am
estimate. he was just over a month old. what are the afghan man who found the child says he's now in touch with the parent parents legal the election. we kept the baby and contacted many people to find the parents. we contacted the bbc 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 thought trying to establish whether to highlight maddie anaheim at are the same child. i mean, while the jan's family say they've grown to love the baby so much,
7:13 am
they're willing to give it a home if the 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 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 on, we will keep him with us. we love him, douglas, germany is rolling out new cobra rules that are active from wednesday. and these measures severely restrict the unvaccinated binding them from using public

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 slash going snow to the blast for open air settings piece 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 will without their paris. i think that 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 by 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 5000000000 euro. we're to the german economy. this is of course the 2nd year that they faced disruption because
7:17 am
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 have been put in place. peter, all of a r, t. berlin. thank you. more still to come here on your wednesday programming coding outrage, voiding over in the u. k. up to video emerges, suggesting a celebration was held in downing street last year, despite the coping restrictions locked downs, mosques and repeated government denials, of full story in just a moment. ah, [000:00:00;00]

7:19 am
suicide from their species has become interesting. ah, it is good to have you with us today. now saudi arabia's claims that yesterday's arrest by french police, if a man suspected in the involvement of the motor of jamal how shock g is a case of mistaken identity. let's learn more crossing live. our correspondent empower charlotte do whisky. charlotte. what do we know so far? well to say that this is an embarrassment is a bit of an understatement. the reports went viral on tuesday that this man named kelly dela toby, who is arrested at an airport in paris, was one of the men that killed that journalist back in 2000. and 18, what happened to we understand is that he presented his passport at the airport, trying to catch a plane to his home country of saudi arabia when he was detained. now,
7:20 am
the saudi arabian ministry of foreign affairs immediately denied that this was one of the team, the murdered jamal cushion g, back in 2018 at the is the consulate of saudi arabia, in a stan bull saying that this was a case of mistaken identity also going on to say that not only was this name cali della ta, be quite a common name in the kingdom, but the man whose name that is that you reasoning to the murder is currently sitting in jail right now. so you can imagine lots of people doing vacations and checks to see whether that's true or not. now, the murder of crucial g and leashed global criticism of saudi arabia and of its de facto lee. there mohammed have been salman. they happened back in 2018 in the journalist who had gone into the consulate in a stumble, merely to do some paperwork as a formality was never seen again, he was attempting to finalize,
7:21 am
paperwork that he can get married to his turkish fiance. his body has never been found, however, audio from inside the consulate suggests that he was strangled to death. shortly after entering and that his body was dismembered. their accusations that the yeah, the go ahead. the green light for that mission came all the way from the top in saudi arabia, from n b s himself. and as a result of that, the diplomatic blow back was huge, with many countries giving not just saudi arabia, but also to factor leader at the cold shoulder. as a result of that, that is in till coincidence. just a few days ago, frances president, emmanuel mack old, became the 1st major weston leader to go to saudi arabia and to meet with m b. s. now the visit was a part of plans by mac on to make
7:22 am
a multi 1000000000 euros deals with the country. but some of also suggested that this was also a way of trying to rehabilitate the image of m. b. s. mac cohen has defended the reasons why he went there and it will be done. we talked about everything absolutely. without any taboos, with been solid and we were able to raise the issue of human rights. it doesn't mean that i endorse anything that i forgotten that were not demanding partners. ah, well, massive criticism of that visit. i, president michael was many accusing him of putting politics ahead of human rights. others saying that the idea that he was that to secure these lucrative deals as more to do with him trying to seek re election in 2022 and also trying to put to bed a pretty poor year when it comes to foreign policy for france, particularly the loss of that de la miss said tree with
7:23 am
a straight over some marines astray. you, of course, ending up signing a deal with the u. s. canada, and the u. k. but whatever way you look at this arrest wrongly or rightly of this saturday citizen is certainly become a pretty sticky wicket for president macklin. i lottie, thank you. so just a day since the u. s. cove at czar said the armor convent is almost certainly no more severe than delta. the wealth of the vaccine makers has sword since the discovery all on the crew on the share prices of pfizer. i'm more donna are up by $10000000000.00. and while the world health organization has repeatedly called on those companies to share their vaccine licenses, to poor nations and help the pandemic, it seems a the big pharma giants don't share that view. the waiver proposal is based on the incorrect notion that vaccine access is limited due to current levels of
7:24 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 lead to 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. now 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 developing ones. the w h i was, director general says the current policies of the companies are unacceptable. low and low. a 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. while the whole pandemic has certainly proven very lucrative for the big pharma bosses,
7:25 am
especially since all miranda was found in the ceo alone added more than a $100000000.00 to his personal well, there's the company shares skyrocketed since last week and 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 or when you're talking about medicines, the people that are going to make a difference between life and death and i 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 sitting on track seems that they're never going to need with no plan to even donate them. at a meanwhile blocking the ability of other countries to set up and protect their own manufacturing bases. so they may be able to make their own vaccines and, and, and coming in at the world trade organization to prevent a wave or intellectual property. here in my country we fax natured, you know, coming out to 70 percent of the population ah,
7:26 am
in parts of the african continent. and 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 on the chrome emerged and was spread only 3 percent of the population. a vaccinated wanting 10 health workers in the african contra continent of acts nature. and that, that simply can't be right. elise and london are examining new evidence that downing street staff party last year during the height of the covey lockdown, or private mr boris johnson denies. any rules are broken yet recently emerged video shows to staff members joking about the christmas party suggesting it certainly did happen. is our correspondent, shadier edwards dashti. well, some i 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
7:27 am
a legit christmas party that happened. wait for it last year during the cove, its set of restrictions. his. the itv exclusive interview with i'm at home is fictional policy was a business means 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 to have taken place or the wine and cheese event as she puts it. now, if all of this is true, it would have completely contraband. the strict cobit restrictions, the u. k. london in particular was in tier 3 k v 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 phase of the private restrictions, almost a total lockdown,
7:28 am
and christmas was entirely cancelled. so multiple sol to the same. this parties certainly did happen at boris jones, the 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 they're 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 caving 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. they're saying the minous as time is up, we have number 10, government in london breaching its wooden cove, it rules and, and joking opposed to on the video. it really isn't acceptable. and i have to say unfortunately, on the basis of this behavior, because it's not just about this,
7:29 am
if it's a part of a prime minister repeatedly lies, a prime minister, the can't be trusted. he should cool. and he should go and i government broke the rules. they parted. now they're laughing about it. they're treating the public with contempt. the promised nice to step up except what happened and apologize. remember this isn't the 1st time that something like this has happened. dominic cummings, the prime minister's former chief aid, while he travelled 270 miles from london to durham to visit bernard cause we remember that saga our last year. then of course the former how secretary at mat hancock founded an intimate embrace. both of these talk politicians breaching the
