8:01 am
taking tensions between the 2 to the new level. ah, hello, good afternoon, 4 o'clock here in moscow. you watching artie international. now we'll start with that breaking news because a london court has ruled that wikileaks founded during the sound can be extradited to the united states. washington, when its appeal against the previous ruling that brought to san from being sent to america to face trial on espionage charges. his fiance described the decision as a grave, miscarriage of justice reporting from outside the court in london. his art is shandey at which dashti. oh, jesus sanchez now or step closer to being expedited to the united states. as the u . k. high court has decided that it will, the overturning a decision not to extradite him to the united states. that decision was based back
8:02 am
in january or medical grounds at the time the judge said it would be oppressive as june massages out of high risk of suicide. of course, back in october, those a to day harry, i was the united states trying to appeal over numerous grounds, including the fact that it offered an unprecedented package of assurances, as i saw it would not be held under the maximum security district. his maxim security conditions in prison and that he isn't unwell is being, he's made out. once there is an assurance of appropriate medical care. once it is clear, you will be repatriated, joe, australia to serve any sentence. then we can safely say the district judge would not have decided the relevant question. and the way that she did well, just continue to say that he is indeed after suicide risk. and that all of these assurances are meaningless and vague as they put it. they said that the united states can reverse any decision. not any point. class is also concerned about the trustworthiness of america's guarantees to pointing to one of those reports in the,
8:03 am
in the cia i had talked to kidnap during the saw and put it to kill him on even was spying. and bugging him during his time at london's ecuadorian embassy. now june is sanchez noise? i will, they says this is ample enough. evidence to not only throw out the court case entirely, but they say it's a 100 percent politically motivated. plus, they of course, argue that q and a son should be walking free, which is perfectly reasonable to find that oppressive to extradite immensely disordered person. because he's extradition is likely to result in his death or court must be able to use its power to protect people from extra dis, to a foreign state where they have no control over what will be done to them. no, the united states hold you in the san for what they deem is one of the largest compromises of classified information in the history of the united states. and if found guilty and convicted, he could be sent to prison for up to
8:04 am
a $175.00. years that's because the us have indicted him on 18 counts under the espionage, jacques for publishing a 5 minute treat documents over related to the war in iraq and afghanistan. but most crucially, i got included claims the minute tr even killed thousands of innocent civilians. now, speaking outside the high court here, this morning, we've heard from stella morris the partner who's incredibly disappointed and she's saying why and how is this happening? how long can this really go on for? and many people have been supporting her outside here. many, many protests is that also are similar questions there who is a glimmer of hope that you know, the british justice system might actually prevail for once. the british judiciary, as assistive on every level the u. s. campaign to get a 10 years 10 years in the streets of london, public opinion,
8:05 am
and this was a sound. but obviously the judge's decision is not on the side of public opinion. it's absolutely devastating. so she, this time of year to another christmas without do you know that is children without their dad stay on the fight to free judy, the telephone, we will prevail eventually? well, interestingly or ironically today is international human rights day. and many people outside a high court to say, where is the human rights in the case of june, saw and obviously was still on the foreground of the royal court of justice. that they call it the royal courts of injustice. just as it was being announced, a protest even through eggs at this side, directly behind me, which just goes to show the sentiment and feeling here on the streets of london. okay, well let's just go through quickly then the background to this case in 2019
8:06 am
a saw towards forcefully removed by british police from the exploit embassy in london. after keepsake terminated his 7 year silence, he had sought refuge in the building following section of social legation from sweden, which have now been dropped. america once a week leaks found, extradited on claims of conspiring to hack mac computers and publish classified material in general to share a british judge did rule against ex, residing him to the u. s. t to phase over his mental health, but also rejected his by lap location claiming he may flee. earlier i spoke with the wiki leaks editor in chief kristin, her absences was actually in believable. and so i run a good decision should be handed on the united nations human rights. the united states had all opportunity in the madison court to make those so called assurances it did not. it simply press them forward after the last in the menus court in general, the united states had given assurances that the they would to treat the
8:07 am
julian fairly. and he would get that treatment and be housed in an adequate to jail and could even server the new sentence if he gets one in australia. all of these so called assurance and have been and been investigated by human rights organizations such as amnesty international and found that those are some of the worth, the paper they're written on. they are simply not reliable. we are dealing here with a nation where individuals on the top level in the junior, the top level of the cia and in the white house contemplated, kidnapping were killing julian assaults. this is not a case that has been fought on the basis often more. this is an absolutely try to steal any legal process. this is a political case, and the julian arrest us we have said many, many years is
8:08 am
a political persecution. while the u. s. has been pursuing assange after he revealed classified information on american military activities during was in afghanistan and iraq. ah, with
8:09 am
me, while russia's foreign ministry has slammed the court verdict highlighting that it coincides with the end of the summit, the democracy hosted by the united states. this shameful verity can a political case against a journalistic and public figure is another manifestation of the cannibalistic world view of the anglo saxon tandem. the west marks international human rights day and the end of the summit for democracy with dignity. now i also spoke with your political analyst, patrick kenny sin. he says that the west us think it's rhetoric on democracy and freedom of speech only applies to other countries. the. they like talking about journalism early like talking about media freedom or they like to impose it on various other developing week countries. target nations. nations singled out for regime change, but when it comes to actually living up to those sort of things at home though the, the rhetoric doesn't actually match or the reality. and i think julia sanchez cases, a huge embarrassment on that level. so then again, incumbent on the establishment,
8:10 am
the mainstream media, the political powers, to collude together or to ignore this case and to deny the fact that to julia sarge, as a journalist and that wiki lakes is in fact a press outlet doing a public service. so that's more or less how they closed ranks on that on that story. much not international. going to take a quick break. now we'll be back with more news in a couple of ah, ah ah ah
8:11 am
ah. you're watching television. you forget about the carpet because the facts from the living room and you plug your experience into the tv something romantic happens. romantic feelings can be scary, happens you will get your suspend belief in reality. and you literally follow the story if you live is on the television. and in a sense, who knows who similar hello again. now the ukraine, the naval vessels approached russian waters in crimea,

8:14 am
not responding to enquiries. the extra, so the grant and ship's crew are regarded as provocative and endangering navigational safety. while the ukranian side reported that the ship did no plan to pause for this trade and it was on, on saving in the sea of assault towards the coast trade. and later, throughout the day, started to return with the continued not to respond to requests from the russian, oregon. according to the f b, the russian special service regarded the actions of the crew as provocative and threatening the safety of navigation. in 10, the ukrainian side said it did no end to the sensitive so it was before being tossed in its territorial horses. and i'm so that began returning to the base also according to the ukranian friends, minutes that we don't bought ship them to see over legally, since it was a shed water area. and he expressed his surprise rather more. so a threat from an armed session rescue vessel. apart from that on december, the 9th,
8:15 am

8:16 am
he's murdered. gas takes a while to look now at ukraine. tensions ness collation both rhetorically. we would, we have seen this hysteria reach fever pitch about the situation over ukraine, about potential plans to invaders. some countries say, but the situation on the ground in ukraine is perhaps worse to war because that is where people are dying. people are dying. people are suffering. people are going through through al and have been going through hell for many years that we have, we have seen of the united states, specifically pumping weapons into ukraine for the ukrainian military. and these are weapons b, b, b, they, a javelin miss are supplied by the united states, or barracks, are drones supplied by turkey. these are, these are weapons that are flowing into credit and immediately going to the conflicts of where the civil war is being fought in the east of ukraine. and they
8:17 am
are making life horrific for the people that ukraine has boosted about how it is used. all it's, it's shiny new toys. unfortunately, the people on the receiving end very often are civilians. there are more than 2000000 civilians are trapped in the conflict soon in east than ukraine. and they're just having to break it out. people going to sending their kids to school, they will have to worry about a tang cello, a mortar, round landing. they're on the grounds of the school, back in the classroom where the kids are. people going to work must always worry about tang grounds flying into the bus. they're in the public transport, deliver the car into the house. vladimir putin is like and what is happening to a war cry. so she, i should say that russo foby as the 1st step towards genocide. what's going on and on bass now very much resembles genocide. we see it and we know about it, which is all we hear about is these potential plans emanating from the she,
8:18 am
i of the white house, the british government. these plans that no one previously knew about that russia was planning to invade. a huge area of ukraine was unclear how they would be able to achieve this with, with, even if we believe the see i and others with, with such a small force, a $100000.00 troops as a very unlikely scenario. nevertheless, that's speculation. at this point, they themselves have said that russia hasn't made the decision to invade a ukraine. but let's look at what is happening again on the graph. do you have the os c that reporting on seas for violation? so their work is constant and round the clock. ukrainian artillery enforcers destroyed or damaged 5 times more civilian infrastructure at schools at workplace as that is people's homes. 5 times more infrastructure was destroyed and damaged by
8:19 am
ukrainian forces, the vice versa. you also have the situation in which you, ukraine, still still 6 years on, refuses to negotiate with the breakaway republic saying that this isn't something we're going to do because if we talk to them face to face, that would be tantamount to acknowledging them. aside from that, there are also all manner of promises and assurances that you can keeps on hearing from, from britain, from the united states, that they've got their back, that thou help them, that they'll keep the russians away. and what i, what that does is it emboldens you credit. and unfortunately, the situation is such that aside from very one sided coverage, you have a situation in which piece simply isn't desirable. what a ghastly affair willis. the story unfolded last night. guess we spoke. he said that the incident did appear to be a provocation by ukrainian military the to development, the deliveries of weapons from the u. s. the readiness of joe biden to support the
8:20 am
ukranian side, much stronger than his pre di. busy has emboldened at least the falcons in key f, and has kind of the hope that yes, there is a possibility to military li, reclaim successfully reclaim the territory of the break away republics. this amounts to the mother of old sanctions, which of course key of makes key of believe that they have the sort of cap blash. so here now the key for a potential war in europe lives now 100 percent with the, the key of government if key, if decides to provoke russian invasion and there will be a russian invasion as soon as g of starts a major offensive against the break of a republic in that case automatically. busy the blank check will be full of. busy western support for the ukrainian side from the point of view is after the disaster
8:21 am
because they don't want to increase tension. there's been so much talk about rushing the troops on the border of ukraine. ukraine saying that the russians we invaded song. and this is the type of thing that ukraine doesn't really want. it's david and goliath, is it? because it is an unequal contest. so therefore, it's up to ukraine not to revoke russia not to produce a situation where russians might use force. well, i'm sure that a ship called dawn bass just coincidentally, happened to test russian resolve near the, near the bridge. i think it was definitely a provocation. we've seen in the media over the past couple of weeks, particularly here in the united states, a lot of coverage about how russia is massing its troops inside of russia. and somehow that's a threat. russia has gone as your viewers well, no, to this point is saying yes, you can go through. you can go through the straight, but you do have to file in advance. and that's certainly according to,
8:22 am
in accordance with international law, the last person to congratulate president by but i think he's trying to walk it back. i think he's looking for a way out of this. you know, that's the case. he should be applauded for trying to do this for telling the landscape, hey, why don't you look at the mens agreement and try to go a little bit further towards fulfilling these obligations you've taken on? okay, well let's just recap our breaking news this because the london court has ruled that wiki lease, founded tutoring assange can be expedited to the united states, washington one, it's appeal against the previous ruling that blocked him from being sent to america to face trial on espionage charges fiance, those describe the decision as a grave miscarriage of justice. back in january, british judge ruled against exercising him to the u. s. g to phase over his mental health and risk of suicide. i meanwhile, classified documents have been laid back, showing how the u. s. broke diplomatic assurances in another extradition case, similar to that which june this on 9 faces. even mendoza was expedited from spain
8:23 am
to america on condition that he'd be alive to serve his sentence in spain. but the u. s. held him in the u. s. jail for almost 7 years before eventually returning him . we spoke to independent journalist richard met hers to release the documents. in the mendoza case, you know, they've told a song that he can serve at any potential sentence in his home country australia. they said the exact same thing to mendoza, they told him just just let him come to the us and he can serve any sentence given back in spain. in mendoza's case, the united states signed a contract, an explicit contract with mendoza and with spain saying that he must be returned to spain. he cannot be given a life sentence, he kind of tried for conscience structuring. they violated that there were other conditions as well. and those is extradition, they're all vaguely worded. so for example, a life sentence was also forbidden because spain forbids life sentences. the u. s. embassy in madrid says we won't give him a life sentence, but we will give him
8:24 am
a determinant amount of incarceration, which could be 500 years, which is effectively a life sentence. and the same thing with serving a sentence in spain, they told him that they won't object to him making an application that's completely different. the u. s. kept him for 6 years and 9 months. the only reason mendoza was allowed to go back to spain is because he sued spain twice in the spanish supreme court. and he won and spain threatened to cut off the extradition treaty with the u . s. that is when the u. s. felt pressure, they wanted to keep extra dining people from spain. and so it's only because this was imperiled and in danger of being cancelled that they then sent him back. he also, when he got this document right here, the contract that he signed, he asked for it. he asked me with governments give him a copy. so we get contested in court. they refuse, they told him it's classified. he's not privy to diplomatic communication. so he had to fight to get this document, and then he was able to sue the u. s. in us court. and they told him, if you drop the u. s. suit, you can go back to spain. so just to recap, he sued spain in the supreme court. he sued the united states and then they let him
8:25 am
go back and those are what was extradited for drug trafficking and money laundering . and he told me, if they did that to him, if the united states did that to mendoza, what are they going to do to julian? i thought this is a common practice. the united states violates is assurances it's diplomatic agreements, whether it's iran nuclear deal, whether it's, you know, a prison transfer assurances for a saundra window. they're going to violate the mark my words. this is going to happen. mendoza is certain of this. can i interviewed him for this? and he's seen dozens of people from spain, from columbia, from mexico, from all over the world, who've been given assurances and wants to get to the us. it's violated even when you have really compelling evidence. that assurance can be trusted. that the u. s. is not abiding by the rules. you know, they want a song to abide by the law. they want mendoza to abide by the law, but they are not abiding by the law themselves. these documents that i published, they weren't seen by the court yet. they weren't submitted in court. and i'm convinced that if the judge had seen them, if the judge's study these documents, they could not let the extraction go ahead because they've accepted that as long as
8:26 am
suicidal. they've accepted the judge, apply the test correctly, that he would be even more suicidal. he would, he would drive an extradition to deal with, drive him to take what makes up that all this. so the only reason they allow the appeal to go ahead today was that the judge should have allow us to give assurances before and that they trust the u. s. assurances. well, i'm very sorry, but these classified documents say otherwise. i was independent journalist richard met her stead just coming up to half possible in the afternoon in moscow, but back again. this helped ah ah. back breaking toil forced labor stress industrial injury
8:27 am
corporal punishment. oh no. words with which we're all familiar. are you certain that the world you live in abolish slavery, long ago, joined me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to guess in the world of politics, sport, business, i'm show business. i'll see you then scientific knowledge has never been so readily available to everyone across the globe,
8:28 am
but overwhelmed by information. can we distinguish the real signs from the one being imposed upon us? we're living in a world where there are many people who have a vested interest in fighting information, fighting scientific evidence, and discrediting even the notion that science could provide. the truth about the natural world in the pursuit of business goes large corporations, a challenge strongly by scientific evidence. if you're emotionally invested and free markets, then climate change is a serious emotional threat because dealing with it means we have to change our approach to business industries or on the war bond attempting to debunk legitimate science by producing new evidence in science and writing science. that's how ignorant says manufacture their attention only seeking to the rail science rolling using stier to give the cell
8:29 am
a key it national and me will be see a see more. i mean really there was a very long she did a yeah. this yeah. with the legal team managers to get the case discussed at the united nations. and sweden begins to feel the international political pressure, especially from that in america. mm. promoting and respecting human rights for all women, men, girls and boys is a core value and a central priority for the swedish government. but he a dealership question. when he 30 or the quick here persona video person. yes, we got those of the near grid, visual editor here. kinetic amin, dyslexia don't wanna me, i can create that,
